    Morning Clickers, another very Brrrrrrrr morning and we still have last night’s snow so may delay pool time until the roads are a tad safer looking. ;-) A client to see later this morning so hopefully our we roads will be ok by then. About -4 at the minute. :bad: See Tony is up and about too, morning Tony. @dandlyon Have a good day all :-)

    • Morning Karen. :fingers-crossed: you can get to your pool or you will be getting stir crazy ;-) . Forecast looks a tad milder tomorrow, tropical 7 here which would be welcome. Enjoy your day petal. :-)

      • Morning Cilla, have resorted to the exercise bike at the minute, but don’t enjoy it nearly as much. 7 would be wonderful. ;-) We do have a very pretty sky at the minute – but that’s not such a good sign either. :confused:

    • Morning Karen :-) we have a tiny sprinkling of snow just in one bit of the garden! Will be a cold skip this morning. Couldn’t face an exercise bike – what colour is your lycra? ;-)

      • I just have my fitbit thing and make sure i do my steps per day…soooo walking the Poppydog and a stroll to the local if I haven’t done enough ;-)

        • Sounds perfect for keeping fit Sue, but I’m trying to shift a stone, so needs must on some additional calorie burning. ;-)

      • Nooooooo, Jane, that would really scare the horses. :lol: Make sure you are warm enough doing that skipping girl. :good:

    Morning Clickers, and thank you Tony for giving me a laugh first thing. :good: @dandlyon Electric supposed to be off all day today, so a good test for the OH’s new auto switch-over on the generator. Hope it works. ;-) Off for a swim shortly, and then back to the window repairs clean up. :confused: The boys did a great job on the repairs, but oh…[Read more]

    • Morning Karen. Don’t overheat clearing up the mess now you have no draughts ;-) …….why didn’t they clear up their own mess? :confused: Enjoy your swim, I haven’t got any further than thinking about it! :lol:

      • Morning Cilla, they had to drill out a lot of the old hinges, so lots of “bits” everywhere, they didn’t get finished till nearly 5pm and didn’t particularly want them traipsing about anymore with big boots on! If you had seen the colour of their hands you wouldn’t have wanted them hanging curtains back up either. :lol: Just off so will catch…[Read more]

    • At the risk of making a sweeping statement – it’s pretty rare to find that a man’s idea of “clearing up” is the same as a woman’s, particularly when it’s part of her own space. Think the important thing is to encourage them to try and praise them lavishly when they do. Good morning Karen and Cilla – it’s dry here, Hurrah!

    • Morning Karen :-) you’ll have done miles by now (driving and swimming)! Hope the electrics work for the coffee when you get back :-)

      • Afters Jane, nearly did, ;-) sigh, had to go out and switch the bloomin thing over, so a failure on the auto-switch, but at least the generator came on automatically, so have coffee, yippee. :lol:

    @dandlyon Happy birthday Tony for the 21st, Just in case I’m not on here for a week or so. Al 👍

    • Thanks for giving us the nod on Tony, Allan. We’ll make sure his day is celebrated. If You and Jules are going away for Christmas – have a lovely time!

    Morning Clickers, I see Tony and Jane lurking ;-) @dandlyon @northernteacher the rain has stopped at last, it was brutal yesterday. Off for a swim shortly, then work, but might get some clearing up done later. :good: Have a good day all. :-)

    • Morning Karen :-) glad the rain has stopped for you – hoping the wind here will reduce as the Wiz doesn’t really like it and we have to go to Lidl. Hope to do some clearing up here too. Only about half a dozen more tomatoes to harvest, so will probably pull all the plants out. Have a good swim and day :-)

    @dandlyon Just popping in to say good luck for the weekend Tony :good: :rose:

    But that looks nothing like Tony :lol: Joke ;-) @dandlyon

    Very interesting, Sheila and good morning! Will be interesting to see what Tony @dandlyon thinks of this idea. I suppose those that live in drier areas should think about saving their vinegar from all those jars of pickled beetroot and gerkins for possible future use, though I dread to imagine the potential stink from spillage…

    • I can’t believe that it’s used instead of water? Diluted with it perhaps? Must read article/s more thoroughly :good:

  • gertie posted an update 1 year, 4 months ago

    @dandlyon Hi Tony :high-five: How goes your day? :rose:

  • gertie posted an update 1 year, 4 months ago

    @dandlyon Following your lead yesterday Tony … I’ve taken a few shots of the local buildings I was describing. :rose:
    What I don’t understand is why the descriptions I made under the photos doesn’t show up anywhere :confused: Maybe it’s only in my albums :confused: :dunno: :rose:

  • dixon posted an update 1 year, 6 months ago

    @dandlyon I hope to do much the same Tony. Filling the new bed with compost and some sharp sand to make my onion bed.

  • A definite thumbs down on that Tony :bad: I was looking forward to seeing Micky P again. Will he be there on the Thursday at all? @dandlyon :fingers-crossed:

  • gertie posted an update 1 year, 8 months ago

    @dandlyon:good: Great idea Tony :rose:

    @dandlyon Good evening Tony :high-five: Did you get your wire from Wilcos? :rose:

    • Hi Anne yes I got my wire, then found this morning I had taken my spare roll of wire to the allotment so now have two

      • :lol: Sounds familiar that :lol: All set for next year then anyway, never mind this one :lol: hope you’re enjoying the afternoon :good: :rose:

  • gertie posted an update 1 year, 9 months ago

    Good evening Folks :high-five:
    After another sally to the top of the hill, chatting with an acquaintance en route, then more useful shopping, then a briskish walk downhill again home, was only too glad to get back inside … it is very cold out there :shout: but I did give the birds a thought too … they sing so sweetly, and I can hear them…[Read more]
