Ta spence, I've finished for the day. The tree's still not fully topped out. I'm going hire longer ladders . I can get about 20 feet up with mine and I don't fancy climbing the rest.
This flippin tree work is like a heavy weights session that goes on for hours.

very clever!

I nearly had a 'trouser incident' in the park!!  

07/11/2012 at 16:13

X post Noggs, blimey does HRH know you're doing that!!
I don't want to be a worry wort but blinkin heck!!

07/11/2012 at 16:14

ooh thats good Podds

just got a text from Mr FF - his Dad is very poorly and theyve taken the decision to just keep him comfortable and not treat him as such, not nice

07/11/2012 at 16:23

Oh dear poor Mr FF and dad But how nice that they can keep him reasonably comfortable until he drifts off - it is always so much harder being the ones left behind and at least Mr FF has got the time off to spend with him

(((FarFar and family)))

Noggy, I agree with Spence, that sounds teriifying to me!

Pippi, isn't it scary when our teenage rebels settle down and become model citizens?  BTW, your OU stuff sounds fascinating, vernacular history really gives a feel for what was happening to ordinary people, doesn't it?

Chuggy it sounds as if you are having fun catching up with John Lewis an M+S

Larry, what a shame - I thought I was keeping in touch and, it appears, wasn't. I will PM you via this site.

Gary, I meant to ask yesterday whether you have tried anti-allergy wipes on your cat? They are supposed to break down the dander and make it less allergenic. We have recently purchased some to try and make life more pleasant for MS (and SB when he is home). It is too early to tell whether they are effective, but it was worth spending a fiver to give them a try.

I used to really enjoy bakig and decorating cakes. However, I stopped because it is better for my eating plan if I stay away from that kind of thing. I also now find that the pain and fatigue rule out me cooking from scratch like I used to. In this house, ready meals and packet mixes (jars, tins etc) rule supreme!

Friend came round for a cuppa this morning, she has some ongoing problems that she wanted to talk over (well, she also wanted to play with my little black boy) then out this arvo with my Thursday man. Quiet evening at home for MS and I as he has already had his birthday meal.


WAIST well xxx

How fortunate for them to live in Tescos although I would have thought that Great Western Railways would have been more appropriate

You need to be more specific, Meldy, then I can get the restraining order amended accordingly.

I'm missing Masterchef , I thought it was on at 8:30, I don't want to switch on now halfway. I'll have to wait till it's on catchup!!!

Larry, I get emails to you bounced right back at me also!
