Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

A friendly garage will do it for you Sue. As always, aiming for the shed but it's amazing how things get in the way! Jack and I are high maintenance! Not round here Stanley. Everywhere is closed, and its hard enough to find one to get a repair done on your car, like a puncture. It would be easier t...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I gave up trying to edge it with the spade, far too tough and strenuous. Have you tried one of the rounded edging spades. these make life a lot easier where you can overlap the cuts taking advantage of the previous cut. If you have a lot of lawn they are well worth the investment. edging spade That...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Morning all. As I said yesterday Stanley, I am glad you have stopped going to the shops Well I spent two hours shredding wood yesterday, producing only two barrow loads of chippings and made hardly a hole in the pile of wood. Some pieces were just too big to go through the machine, some too fine, co...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Yes Maz I agree. I am glad my sisters partner is staying elsewhere. They split up nearly two years ago but still technically live together as neither can buy the other out. He is hardly ever there so its not normally a problem and I don’t think there would have been any nastiness just difficulty.

Morning all. I am glad you said that about the shops Stanley. I know I had a moan last week about not getting out but if I am honest I don’t want to go shopping and check and double check that Bob has taken all the right precautions. Luckily round here things are not too bad. In the local paper yest...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I am hoping I can get a new kitchen sponge tomorrow. I’m down to my last one.... We haven’t looked at cleaning stuff for a bit, I presume its available still. It was only mushrooms we couldn’t get yesterday for a stir fry last night. We managed without, but its goodbye to the mushroom omelette this...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Maz, China, I trimmed the sides of my hair the other day after I coloured it. Normally I have mine cut once every 5 weeks, so its now getting to the ballooning stage as I call it. The RHS of my hair is thick and the left is thin. As it grows it waves from left to right. Eventually it settles out at ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

According to the weather forecast Stanley your temperatures are 2-3 degrees warmer than us too. Just wrapped up warm, t shirt and two fleeces to go and garden, just waiting for the washer to finish the towels.The sun is out so once I get working I should warm up. It's still very blowy out there.

It's been bitter the last two days here with howling gales. My washing blew horizontal on the line. The washing was actual the fabric my niece sent me, just doing a prewash before cutting out.

I have pilates at 11.00 a.m and then may carry on clearing the ivy and moss off the lawn or will do some writing. My art was a bit disappointing yesterday as I had nei...
