    The sun is now shining.

    I've just watched the Six Nations Rugby final. It was a most excellent game, and a good win for England.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    After a day of near-constant deluge it is a glorious evening.
    The roads were so wet they could almost have been canals - yet is milder here than foretold.

    I thought cake (or similar if I'm completely honest) was statutory with every meal, Fruity?
    Ever since whoever-it-was (supposedly some French person, NOT Marie Antoinette) said "let them eat cake" because there wasn't any bread left.

    Cold pork mash & pickle, Tips?

    Mind you, I wouldn't be at all surprised if you thought similar about haggis which I adore.
    Cold pork of any description ............. even the thought turns my stomach.
    But so long as you enjoy it.


    I like this thread; you learn so much.
    And I do like to expand more than my waistline.

    For example, I didn't know that you could milk (or squeeze) lemmings.
    Mind you, I sometimes ponder just who first thought it would be a good idea to try and milk a cow.


    Or that there were four elephants; I thought Earth, Wind And Fire were most excellent musically in their day and did not realise there was an extra member.

    Have a great evening all.

    Evening all. I am sure there was-------Dixon of Dock green!
    Earth wind and Fire - one of my favourite groups, and September is when my birthday is.
    Now those naughty twins of mine! They have eaten all the coffee and walnut cake
    Whenever I ask them who was it, they ALWAYS point at eachother
    So I had to make do with a chocolate and cream desert

    I'll open it when we've had yours if you'd like a snifter, Sleazy.

    Left permanently?
    Which springs have you been cleaning? Perhaps the ones on your Inspector Gadget shoes.

    Unfortunately Ellie has so many allergies that she has to be supervised when she is in the garden otherwise she will eat something that she isn't supposed to. One of her favourites is cat poo.

    Ooh I could just fancy a take-away - but I just had dinner!
    Spring greens need a wash?
    Is Tuesday not whites day then?

    I mean, I sort colours ........ but NOT into greens; browns etc etc.


    I mowed the lawn just before dinner Fruity; I my arms were longer or that inspector Gadget fella had any idea's I would be more than pleased to assist.
    It has been another glorious sunny day here, too - hence the mowing.

    Please, PLEASE don't get that chappy to sing - I get the feeling he would be worse than me!
    The only people I ever found who appreciated my singing were the Japanese.

    Because my voice seems to suit punk - to cries of "ahh, sugoi" (amazing).

    Nope, them Wurzels will do for me.

    Have a great evening all.

    Same to you The Last Username, have a lovely evening.

    Oh the singing thing was for Sleazy. But I think it frightened him off.
    I am a soul music kind of girl really.
    Well I enjoyed my Lamb Biryani

    Let's hope tomorrow is another day
