    Hello. Am I sending a private message here or can everyone see this? How do I PM, as I'm new here.
    Thanks

    I'm glad you're feeling much improved.
    Both of you. (And the Brazilians! )


    It's been a sunny, glorious day here on the Lincs coast - we're back to proper short-sleeved-shirt weather.

    No mist here either Tips.

    I noticed the choccy drinks earlier.
    If that's you're thing fine but TBH I want mine straightforward please.
    No bits.
    No embellishments.
    I don't want to wade through "stuff" to get a drink.
    JUST GIMME THE HOT CHOCOLATE!


    I'm the same with coffee.
    Forget your "skinny mocha latte" blurb - and don't you dare give me one of those midget-sized cappuccino thimbles cups!
    Fresh brewed with a little milk or cream & a tough of demerara.
    Perfect.


    Now, I hope you continue to improve Fruity.
    You with your arm too Tips.
    Also that the officialdom surrounding forms and plans eases for you both - I have to admit that even though I'm quite computer-literate, it does seem that too much of officialdom is not.

    Oh, and I am looking forward to photos.
    You know I'm a fan of yours any way Fruity - your knitted Brizzle still makes me smile.

    It's not just officialdom's lack of PC ability that frustrate me, but also their seemingly lack of empathy. At least I now have time to deal with these things, although I can always find something better to do than battle with a system that doesn't do what it is supposed to do. *sigh*

    I enjoy taking pics, the odderer the subject the betterer.

    We are planning a city break in Brizzle fairly soonly and I shall have my trusty point and shoot camera with me. There are lots of interesting places, buildings, and crooks and nannies to explore. Expect a whole thread on the subject when we get a round tuit.

    Well that mist that Tips conjured up finally reached us by here at bedtime. Do you think she is a Weather Witch? I can just see her as a character in a Terry Pratchett book.

    It's been mostly a loverly sunny day here again - are we heading towards a "normal" spring and summer or am I jinxing it?

    I look forward to you finding your tuit Fruity.

    A new Fred Tips?
    You go for it .......... my creative pot runneth dry.
    Besides which so few seem to bother it really does kinda make me wonder if it's worthwhile.

    Or maybe this is just a pre-Friday-yawn-can't-be-bothered moment?

    The inside is a bit like this, but I have built a dolly so I can pull the back seat out and leave more room for a disabled buggy or two.
