    Tips, you go off & enjoy your bath.

    I know bits of Glasgow but not ever so well.

    I must now attend to son .......... followed by a little Masterchef.

    I'm a keen (if not exactly brilliant) cook & it is one of the few prog's I watch on "normal" telly nowadays.

    We had a repair contract with a new for old clause, so when the old packed up we were given vouchers for a new one up to a fixed amount. We bought one 13 quid more despensive than the voucher value, including an extended warranty lasting for five years.

    By the way, I be here I be.

    Yes LUN, I like the death character, or should that be, I LIKE THE DEATH CHARACTER.

    If you like Discworld, you might like The Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch. I'm currently half way through book six, and it is making me chuckle.

    The new dry-hair should be here by 10.45 ack emma.

    MFTY + 2 should be here soonly thereafter.

    It's going to be a busy and tiring day with a 7 year old and a 28 year old going on 7. I shall need to top up my fluid levels this evening after they have gone with something containing 95% water.

    Hello!

    Now, what month are we in?
    November maybe?
    Because it blinkin' feels like it!


    Tips, Josephine will probably be a little chilly by now.
    Ta for the recko - er, the wreck-oh - for the suggestion about further reading, Fruity.

    I prefer how you got your dry hair to how I got ours.
    Which is because they had a nasty habit of bursting into flames, it seems!

    I hope your days (both of you) have not been too wearing?

    Is it a wine day Tips?
    If so I may be joining both of you.
    Slainte.

    As in:


    (Dunno why you'd be slanted though? )

    Well, they do say that the ancient Picts dyed themselves blue (and fought naked) so I believe.
    Musta' been a hardy lot - Scotland's not exactly known for being warm.
    Or dry, come to that; I wonder if the artwork ran in the wet?


    I wonder if that piccy will stay, or if it's too risque for 'ere?

    Just a quickie as there are three womens in my kitchen and no room for me.

    Painted blue? That sounds like the Nac Mac Feegles.



    Dryerer arrev'd and install'd and testerat'd by 10 ack emma. Senior management is very please'd wiv er.

    I was right. MFTY at 28 has been harderer work than his 7 year old stepson, who has been very hard work. *sigh*
    Family eh.

    TTFN.

    Take care and chats soonly.

    Set in the "real" world of London Police, an ordinary constable discovers that magic is real and rivers are inhabited by "spirits" made real life. All kinds of mayhem, drama, and a fine detail to modern police procedures ensue, as long as nobody is looking or "alternative reports" can be writ.

    If you like The Watch I'm sure you will enjoy the modern police methods employed by the Falcon division that deals with crimes involving weird bolleaux.

    Hiding behind the sofa is something I have never done when watching the Doctor Foreman show, although my Lovely Cousin used to watch it by peeking through her fingers when she was ickle.
