Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Hot Chicken, Cheese and Tomato Rolls...done in foil in the oven.
Only 4 more sleeps and we will be away in the van, so shopping was a bit different today. I only bought minimal veg to get us through to departure date, as we can't take any fruit or veg over the border.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

My neighbour never uses his green bin at all. He has his lawns mowed by a lawnmower man who takes the clippings away and claims he has nothing else to put in his green bin! Mine is so heavy I can hardly wheel it to the kerb! (Kitchen waste/lawn clippings/plant prunings/weeds/leaves.) Last week they ...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

In some ways here we have gone back to the 1960's, with every bit of organic matter having to be wrapped in newspaper to go in the green bin, along with grass clippings and pruning waste. They are now doing audits on bins and issuing fines to people who do not comply. I already take a bag of soft pl...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Enjoy yourself Julie. Hope the weather holds for you. I'm back to my painting. I've done the marble coat on the box, but it needs to stand for 24 hours now before the glaze. Him-wot-always-has-an-opinion feels I was a bit heavy handed with the marbling. I tend to agree with him for once. I've found ...

Only a young fellow, but I would describe him as a "man mountain". I think I stood at his nipple height!

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I've noticed on our daily walks I am a bit stiff at the start, then everything eases and I really enjoy it, then I ache a bit during the last ten minutes from home. I felt crafty today and was itching to create something. I have a number of old wooden boxes that I have collected during the years. I ...

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

Goodness Gracious! That needs investigating! (The hairs on the back of my neck just stood up) It would be difficult for a woman to be capable of carrying/manoeuvring/lifting the weight of a dead adult male. She needed assistance, and someone was turning a blind eye at the furnace too. That is quite ...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Sausage and Beans is one of those meals where I just push things around the plate and look busy, but don't eat much. Hubby loves Sausage and Beans...Sausage and Onion Gravy etc.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

I had to buy a 2020 calendar. Too many things to remember written down on bits of paper and I can't feel organised unless it is all set out in grid form. I feel better now, and was pleased to find that nothing clashes.

Re: Seen in the News

That reminds me of a dream I had last night. I won't bore you with it but I was extremely high up on a ladder, clinging for dear life and so paralysed with fear, I could not go up or down. I kept telling myself I was fine and must do one or the other and not to look down under any circumstances, but...
