I woke up this morning and spied a cute black and white cat watching a hedge. I then watched him pounce, catch and kill a rat. Lovely.

((((((Dragon))))) colds are such miserable affairs. Hope it doesn't linger

((((Chuggy)))) sometimes phases of poor sleep can pass as quickly as they arrive - hope this happens for you

I have nothing against a Harvester - other than the fact they take the term char grill a bit too literally - just not the most glam of places. However last night's experience was a new one. I felt positively annorexic. Everyone around me seemed to be extremely overweight. One group each took 5 rolls with their salad (I was sitting by the salad bar and that's an eye opener). The group at the next table all ordered a full mixed grill with a burger on the side. It was amazing!

Happy Friday everyone

Evening all

We have moved too many times. It always really iritates me that no-one, apart from me, seems to insulate their loft. We have bought more boilers than I care to count and recarpeted/laminated every bit of floor space and scraped and wallpapered for England . I'm just glad I don't want to move to the Sheffield area as we always end up buying a 'project'. We are currently in the process of remodelling part of the garage so I can keep my work out of the house.

((((Far Far Family)))))

((((Dragon Snot Monster))))

Get you Speedy Spence.

(((Chuggy))) hope the sleep returns soon.

M.elds - you need the magnetic cat flap - we had to install one to keep out intruders and restore order.

I am in Basingstoke. I had my tea at a Harvester. Get me and my glamourous lifestyle.

Happy Thursday

Evening all

New Runner - patience. Relax and enjoy what you can do and don't stress the stuff you can't.

((((((Snaily and the big HO)))))

I have been to Devon, now I am in Somerset. I was looking forward to seeing a bit of Dartmoor as I passed, but someone had turned on the misty rain.

Happy wet Wednesday

How very Kultral Chuggy

((((those fighting the lurgy))))

We had an amusing grumpy teenage morning. Involved a major strop when instructed that she would have to take her make up off for school. It probably doesn't help being laughed at .

Happy sparkly new week. Happy new term.

~~~~~~~(((((Sluggie's friend))))))~~~~~~~~~~ hope the scans & investigations bring some positive news

I hear Spence is 60. She doesn't look a day over 75.

Some impressive cycling, plodding and swimbling going on. Sadly not here! When FC joined us one of her priorities was to join the gym. She has been once. Even though we're not related she seems to take after me!

A holiday and a shiny new kitchen Noggs. How very exciting.

Sorry - can't remember anything else.

Happy Sunday - and for you school types - make the most of it, must be another 5 weeks until your next holiday!

Just popping in to share some very good news

Chum had her checks and the lump is scar tissue etc from surgery/radiotherapy. Yay and thrice hoorah - she is officially one year clear. So thanks for the WAISTer vibes they really do work wonders.

It was somewhat amusing as I met her at the breast clinic. I too have been cleared. Like the custard I make I have natural lumps. I also have a cyst - nothing to fret about. Didn't like to say anything before - but it is a relief .

Pippi - sounds like you've had a grand old time romping around the country

Yums - glad to hear no2 enjoyed his work experience. FC2 hasn't settled so well at school this week - possibly because it's half term - we hope normal service will resume on Monday. She has had a jolly week though - she and OH went to London for a couple of days. They did the Tower Bridge walkway where there's a glass pathway way up high. Apparently it was well worth it. Also the changing of the guard, no Christopher Robin though, I didn't ask about the pooh.

Snaily - how did the big HO visit go in the end?

Oooh how exciting Daffers. 

Looking forward to a full report Pippi.

Fingers crossed for you Noggin - all very thrilling .

Well today seems a tad boring, no pancakes ash or sheep. Happy very ordinary Friday. I suppose though Friday's usually get most of the attention ....

What did you say M.eldy?

New bed and a new bedroom Sluggie - pushing the boat out a bit!

Liked the freemason joke Nogs - made me chortle

For some odd reason my back was awful yesterday then seems much better today. Maybe my wallet had a word as I didn't manage to book an appointment.

Happy New Year - Chinese style. Explains why I've been feeling a bit sheepish.

Morning one, morning all

Awww Dragon - what a lovely little dragonfly - you're getting quite a collection going!

Putting dogs in igloos - is that right??

Sorry to hear Monty used up all your kitchen roll. Hope he doesn't do it again.

Snaily - I'm wearing a hoody today and I liked the YMCA by the Village People - I'm harmless though. Hope the HO visit turns into a ho ho ho visit.

Elbow in the eye - are we talking the folk band Tubbs? Hope it eases soon.

Friend went to see consultant - they think it is scar tissue but will send her for a mammogram Friday - so far so good - thanks for vibes!

After a day in London the back was very tired and achey last night. Thinking of going to see someone about it as this is the third time in 6 months. What's better an osteopath or a chiropractor, or am I supposed to go to a GP?? - I don't do doctors

Happy Ash Wednesday

Rushing through as I need to catch a train. Just popped in to scatter some ((((((~~~~~)))))) and wish you happy pancake day/shrove Tuesday/Nutella mayhem - depending on your beliefs and preferences.......

Somehow M..eldy the cute cross-stitch kitten and you don't seem to go together !
