    Hello my lovelies
    I need to read back to see what you have all been up to.
    I also need to read the news - what is going on with our politics?

    I will pop back here later when I have read a week's worth on this thread.
    I will also tell you how much I enjoyed Gibraltar.

    Welcome back Miss Tipsy , happy to see that you arrived in one piece and hopefully with all your pieces - didn't want any falling out of that airy-flying thing.

    LUN - Oive got a pal called Sergei who works at meercat.com. Give him a call, mention me and he'll give you 'mateys ratey's'. Thinking about your lawn - have you got real Gnomes? Faux Gnomes wouldn't be a bad ideary cos' then you wouldn't need to be-a-feedin' them and they wouldn't go a-stealing your zcrumpy .

    I told you boyz that wifey was having a tidy up this mornin' loike. Well didn't quite happen as planned, cos' after me brekkie I gets a call on me talking device .. "Sleazy, gets you home sharpish. Feline has brought a pterodactyl into the lounge, and oive locked myself in the bedroom ...". So I gets home and can't find said birdy anywhere. Laterers, when getting ready for some shut eye, said pterodactyl appears and is fluttering around like Miss Tipsy's eyes lookin' fer to get out, so I had to help him out the front door loike. Brownie points from wifey for saving her.

    See you all laterers if you be around these partz.

    Miss Tipsy - did you remember me rock?

    Greeting to the Tips-y one!

    I hopes your time haz been enjoyabubbles and that you haven't been annoying any monkeez?
    Or any Spaniards come to that.

    Are you all refreshed and tanned?
    And full of Spanish vino (though I know what type you prefer)?


    Sadly I is now to late for Sergei's intervention Sleazy, the button is pressed and pennies have winged their way ............. much like your Terry duck tail from the soundz of it.
    Gnomes?
    Bit of a sore point here, such fings.
    Coz Mrs Lun has got into her head that the raised bed I didded is gonna be some kinda decorative "fairy garden"!
    I mean, really? That's right, really I have no choice.

    *sigh*


    I do hope that the nice Mr Fruity is re covered in suitable materials?
    Toodles.

    What a day! MFTY turned up with his fambly, and a car with very dangerous tyre. He should never have drived it.
    The anti-theft wheel bolt was seized and I couldn't get the wheel off. My neighbour who is a motor mechanic couldn't get it off, even after trying to persuade it with big hammers and a cold chisel.

    In the end we took it to a local garage who eventually had to cut the wheel apart with an ankle grinder to get the locking bolt out. Apparently it was the wrong type from a completely different make of car and had actually seized into the wheel itself.
    Thankfully we were then able to get the spare wheel on so he and fambly could get safely home.

    Our local RNLI heros have a hovvy craft cos wisitors have a habit of getting stuck in the mud when the tide is out.

    Welcome home Tips.

    Here you go Sleazy

    I don't like cheap Spanish plonk LUN, so I bought some Duty free Vodka - £7.49 Smirnoff.
    200 B&H £21. We stayed in a hotel suite in La Linea, fantastic views from our balcony. Only a 10 min walk to the frontier. The Temp was upto 30 deg most days, so yes I have some colour.
    I did brave the cable car to the top of the rock, to see the Apes - They are so funny!

    Now, where is Fruity? How is the back?

    Just popped back after much-needed wine.
    Welcome M, another Gal was much needed.
    No rules on this thread - just confusion.

    Oh so you employed a different maid I sees. I thought that job had my name written all over it. No worries Mr Sleaze you are forgiven

    I too am having coffee and contemplating what I will do today. Not too much if I can help it.

    Mr M decided to stay with family another night it's been heaven here. No rubbish TV on all day. Just little ole me until he returns later. I intend to make the most of it.

    Good morning all and one.

    It is a middling day by here by here on the Riviera. Neither warm and sunny nor wet and cold. Erz a bit windig though.

    Just for clarification. MFTY is Master Fruitcake The Younger. There is also a MFTE, Master Fruitcake The Elder.

    I shall spend some of the day doing important emails, and the rest of the time clearing out the attic ready for a loft conversion to start sometime in the not to distant future.

    Welcome motivated to the madhouse. Abandon hope all ye who press enter here.

    Hi Fruitcake and thanks for the welcome. I get the impression that this thread is quite jolly. I like jolly

    The weather here in posh Essex too is a bit middling as you put it. A little confused as to what it wants to do. A bit like me.

    Fruity, I thank ee for the explanashuns. I was wonderin' if you be converting the lofty whether you'd be lookin' for a bit of rental? I knows an old codger or three that might be interested in a room - wouldn't mind sharing with Ellie oither if needs be. Best warn Ellie though that they got fleas.

    He is flea free but is not very well house trained. Doesn't know what a washing up bowl is, doesn't know what a rubbish bin is, doesn't know what a hoover or a mop is. I could go on lol apart from that he's an ideal house guest.

    Shall I send him round Fruity?

    Oh yes, we encourage fun and daftness a plenty by here. More importantly we try to be a friendly bunch, and offer support if needed.

    Posh Essex? That implies there is a non-posh part of the county. By here in the land of the Wurzel we have no such distinctshuns. We'm all country bumpkins, ev'n the townies really, zept the incomerz, like me. Oi've only been by yer vur thirty five yerz.
    My Couzin tho' she be a local lass.

    Alas friends the rental inmates have already been chosen. The plan is for My Lovely Cousin and me to move up into the loft extension with bedroom and adjacent shower room, then move the Outlaws into the whole of the existing first floor.
    They will then have a bedroom, a sitting room, (our old bedroom) and a bathroom. We will have to lose the small single bedroom to get the stairs and stairlift in position, but will gain a master mistress bedroom with on-sweet up a level.

    So, no room for any more lodgers.

    I would like to point out that I am house trained. I leave the loo seat down, can recognise domestic appliances at ten paces, and actually use them. I also do light vacuuming with a light vacuum (one that is not heavy, not one that has illumination) and share the washing up.
    However, I do a lot less round the house than I used to since I was diagnosed with several medical conditions, one of which is lifestyle limiting.
    I am fairly sure that I am fairly flea free.

    I am just about to make a nice cup of vanilla black tea made with real tea leaves.

    This thread is such fun and makes me laugh just reading through.
    Tis windy in Tips county and cloudy. I am missing the hot sun I have left behind.

    Fruity glad the plans are getting on track. How is your back now?
    I must find some nice Ellie look alike gifs today.

    Moti I used to live in Chelmsford many moons ago - is that posh or not?

    Sleazy do you have shares in wutheringspoons?

    LUN how is your wifey now?
