About 2 inches here but the wind is nowhere near as strong as forecast.
Very windy here, next to no snow. How disappointing. I love the Lakes in tbe snow. Good nights sleep last night. I feel a lot better today.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I hope you are feeling better sooner rather than later Sue. There seems to be some fairly nasty viruses about this year. Take care and have a nice birthday. :cake: I agree. This is neither a cold nor flu. I suppose it is that type of cold that has similar symptoms to flu. Very tired and achey not m...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

You're going to see snow today in the Lakes Sue and more tomorrow with a lot of wind. Look after yourself and keep warm..... I've done a bit of shopping that was outstanding. No snow at the moment but the cloud is building in the West. Off into the shed! Yes, it was forecast a week ago for this wee...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I refuse to say its flu, I am a great believer that people who say they have flu actually have a cold. But I ache all over have a splitting headache. We shall see. I shall take the medication and fingers crossed. We are out for a meal tonight to celebrate my birthday.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

A toile is a mock up of a garment that allows you to check tbe fit, and do the all the modifications before you make the actual garment. In America it is called a muslin. In the trade they use plain calico so markings can be seen clearly. The modifications are then made to the original pattern so th...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I know that young ladies are getting taller these days but a lot of them appear to cheat. Its quite common to see 4-5 inch heel shoes, and those are the ones with the spikey heels, god knows what they wear under culottes. The model in the picture looks like she has platform shoes. Heeled gold sanda...

The outerlayer is not crinkled thoug...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

In my mind, culottes are more of a split skirt than trousers, so if Sue stands still (showing off her Chinese brocade jacket whilst sipping a glass of champagne on board ship) she appears to be wearing a long skirt, but when she strides off (to greet the Captain) she has free movement and she can e...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

The usual Friday shopping and small tasks but some time in the shed where I am getting I was asked the other day "Why the obsession with the shed?". I don't see it as obsession but more therapy. What happens to you if you don't keep active mentally and physically and stretch yourself by learning ne...

I did 4 drawers, but the fifth stopped me, it didn’t need clearing just tidying but it was full of nostalgia so it remains as it was.

Busy couple of days, clearing out the greenhouse before we demolish it and move it to a drier spot. It always has a moat round it when it rains. Yesterday it was inside too, a very sludgy wet mess. Today we have taken another load of garden rubbish,to the tip, old broken and unwanted pots, frames fo...

20 % Scandinavian....perhaps Viking? Sue, remember William 1 (the conqueror) was of Viking decent. So not only did they come here as illegal immigrants but from a more formal takeover bid. The place is awash with them. Oh so true. But a good northern girl all tbe same. 681153AB-55EC-4CD1-B441-A06CF...
