Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

I thought it was cold yesterday. We apparently had SNOW just 20 mins up the road. Cold again here by 4pm. Heater on, and teeth have now stopped chattering.
( it has been a chilly Winter!)

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Yes, she was using your internet. Do you have a limit? Most of my FaceTime calls last 10 -15 mins ( once a week). I could call him more than that, but he works shift work, and I have to check his shifts so I know what suits us both.

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

I made a double batch of meatballs this morning. One lot for tonight and the other lot are frozen for an easy meal in the van. I hate driving all day, then having to stand and cook an evening meal. The more meals I can just shove in the oven, the better. Leaves us free to sip a glass of wine until t...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

FaceTime is great fun. ( I recall suggesting it to you when your daughter was ill...but you said you preferred WhatsAp at the time). I FaceTime my son a lot.

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

I don't think it is such a bad thing. Keeps you fit and warm. It is repetitive, so you can just ZEN out and think your own thoughts. And you will sleep better for it.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Sounds like you will be very comfortable. We have a solar panel on the roof, so can go "off grid" for a couple of nights or however long we choose if the sun is shining. We can last as long as our water supply. I bought a wind up radio - handy to have if there is some sort of extreme event and one n...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We haven't been away in our van for 9 months, because I had been in too much pain to imagine trying to climb in or out, or sleep in the narrow bed...but I was fine last weekend. I still don't know how I will go travelling thousands of kilometres soon, but I have made hubby promise we will not drive ...

I was given a huge bag of Lemons today on our walk. Very grateful.... :biggrin2: ...looking for recipes suitable for Diabetics to use them up. Must use them by next week, as we cannot take fresh fruit or veg over the border interstate ( unless cooked or frozen).

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I should add, they are not simply hung up. Elastic straps with velcro ends are screwed to the wall in an X configuration. Possibly I should have taken a pic of the straps, as it might explain things better. Just hold the helmet there, stretch the straps around and velcro. Snug on the wall and cannot...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I took pics of our bike helmet storage solution ( they were taking up valuable space in a cupboard). Our high-vis riding vests fit inside the helmets, so I killed two storage problems. I'm very happy with the solution.
Pics sent to Stanley for posting.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Power sockets here must be at least 1 metre from any water source. Having said that, I have a double power point directly over my loo. It's the one I plug my hair dryer into. I always shut the toilet lid...just in case.
