    Tips may be right - a special thread indeed.
    My regards to MB too plz.





    I just want you to know, Tips & Moti, that I never ever "faff" either during nor after filling the car with motion lotion.
    NEVER.
    Coz it's well known that petrol stayshuns is dangerous places, innit?
    If you're not in danger of fumes igniting coz your mobile is ringin' you're at risk of a robbery, there's been loads this year.
    So coz I is a coward I am filled & paid quick then off like the proverbial bat ASAPs.
    Squeezing the last drip ................ safety innit?
    Don't want those drips igniting, see?

    On a serious note re petrol stations. A woman went to pay for petrol late one evening the shop was closed so the lady went to the window. The female cashier said I will open the door so you can come inside to pay she was adamant that the female customer came inside. The confused lady did as requested and when she went inside the cashier told her that she had seen a man slide into her back seat from the forecourt obviously she hadn't locked the car. OMG imagine

    I bet LUN faffs at something.

    That story Moti, makes you think how dangerous these places can be.

    I have eaten too much and I need a barf. Serves me right for stuffing myself with jam and cream dognuts.

    Tips, when you say barf, I hope you means baff, not cry huey.

    I don't faff at petrol stations eiver. I nearly always pay at the pump. Card in, card out, fill tank, reward card in, reward card back in wallet, wallet back in trouserings before I open the drivering's door, keys in the ignition as I get in, car started before I am properly in the seat, car in gear with one hand and seat belt on with the other. Out the filling station within ten seconds of filling.
    No faffing from this country gent bumpkin.

    I don't know the calibre of the men in you MSE ladies' lives, but they are most indefrably found wanting by LUN and my high standards.

    Well I am well lubricated by mostly water after my night out, and now safely home in the house I share with my Lovely Cousin.

    Medical appointments abound in the morning plus I need to get my zorsted car fixed. More expense. *sigh*

    G'night all and one. Take care and chats soonly.

In our house, wifey is ok if I goes out for a bit to faff around - doesn't matter where, just so long as it's nowhere within megaphone or scud missile range.

    I'm due today (now don't you be getting worried LUN, cos' I ain't yer daughter). Due to be busy, in fact if oi am not upright on me own two pins, oi will most certainly be-a-seated upon a bus singing "the wheels on the bus ....". Appointy-ment in town for some argy-ings with those annoying people from a certain government department in the centre, need to find me some food to take with my pills, then we'll see. Wifey has already threatened to bring alky-hol home with her today, so oi guesses that as it's Wednesday, the time table durzn't allow the wagon for to stop by here today.

    Anywayz, enuf of all this faffing - oise orf to sort me business out.

    Oh my poor aching feet. Normally I can walk long distances without problems if I wear sandals sans socks, but I made the mistake of wearing shoes and socks yesterdegg when I were a-walking to the zorst and tyre garage, walking to the station, walking from the station at t'other end to the public house, and all the way back again.
    The socks rubbed my feets and they are both now sorely sore.

    Sleazy, no offence meant but the Master LUN made comment that he is not a faffer so I included him in my comments about the ladies comments about faffing men.

    So, no walking for me today. My Lovely will use her velocipede to pick me up from the zorst garage when I take the Beast there today and take me back laterer.

    An enforced gentler day it is then, so I may be here a bit laterer.

    Talking of walkin' - more I walks, fatter I gets, so I don't rightly know what's goin' on.
    No offence taken Fruity, it's me humorous Beijing over actively again.
    Lot happier now that oive had me vitalls at Wuthering Heights, and currently supping 1 or 3 coffees afore my appointy-ment. Stress levels ecspected to rise beyond the 10th floor, so may need a whirly-bird, I'm afraid LUN that your ovvy-crafty won't be up to the job.
    Miss Tipsy & Mega Maid - didn't want you to be feeling left out, so thought that I'd at least mention you in my morning faffings rumblings.

    By the way - Take it easy Fruity cos we doesn't want you to get zorsted if you get me blowings

    Moti - After careful considerings, I'm pleased to tell you that oive placed you on the reserve list for to be my next maid. Hence my suggestion of name Mega Maid, partiklerly considerings you avatary. Think it was them letters what decided me. Decided not to use any letters meself even thoughs I cud - sounds to me as though this thread be full of goodly edified peepol. However, when I gets me bus pass, think about adding OAP after me name.

    It is nearly Afternoonings
    Trying to remember all I have read here.

    Fruity I can do exhausts, I was taught by hubby many moons ago. Well, maybe not now - but I can be pretty exhausting at times if that counts.
    Where your socks inside out Fruity, that way they won't rub cos it is the stitching wot does it.

    Sleazy I hope all goes well today. We do understand your humour here - so no need to apologise.
    I am afraid that it is meds that put on the weight as they slow your metabolism down.
    PS sorry but you are not an OAP, not in your 50s.

    Now I am wondering if Mystic Tips was right today - The stalk for LUN?????

    My thoughts with you Moti - don't work too hard.

    Finally, I have been watching the News and was very saddened by the fire. My prayers today are with all those involved.

    Afternoonings, watching the news and can scarcely believe that this could happen especially after a major refurb last year.
    Like the tips about the socks - we could do that with all our clotheses methinks, thus doubling the time between washes, saving money and saving the planet.
    Suitably stressed, but not too bad as was ecspected.
    Remembered to make appointy-ment for eye test. Now just have to remembrings to acksherly go. (Friday 0850 peeps).
    Now I must go-a-finding something that I've mis-a-placed, so hope to see you all laterers if I'm not too busy faffing around.

    Sleazy, have you never heard of the five week undercrakers?
    Week one, wear them the right way round as normal.
    Week two, turn them back to front and wear them again.
    Week three, turn them inside out but still back to front and wear them again.
    Week four, turn them the right way round but still inside out and wear them again.
    Week five, roll them up to make a thong and wear them again.
    This is a money saving site after all.

    I am now about to demonstrate to the whole world my culinary skills. I am going to ...
    boil some eggs.
    After that I am going to make some seasoned egg mayo for my sandridges.

    Tomorrow I shall be cooking some artisan Moroccan lamb sausingerlings.

    Who menshunned lamb?

    Leg, chops, saws hedges ......... spiced, plain .......... I don't care.
    I love lamb!
    Did I say that before, maybe?


    Still no delivery via stork. Daughter is getting a little fed-up & friends telling her they were 2 weeks over is not helping.

    Sad news about London again, I'm in agreement with Fruity.



    Tips, I have been giving serious thought to your "faff" suggestion & TBH the nearest I come to faffing is with packing shopping.
    Everything has to be just so, heaviest to the bottom and lightest to the top - no mixing cold and/or meat/dairy with veg or packets/cans etc etc.
    Don't get me wrong, I still move - I can handle Aldi/Lidl speed.
    I just don't see the point of having pancake bread because someone put a 10lb bag of spuds on top, see?


    Hey Sleazy, I'll give yer a yell on Friday to remind you - it's some Nanny test day or other so we'll be up.
    Not on here, but up.

    Oh, "Mega Maid" ......... I quite like it but why does that remind me of ice cream?



    Moti, I told yer petrol stayshuns is dangerous places.
    I had to larf at the silly person trying to get her car so the petrol cap was on the side next to the pump ........... and failing! that has been doing the rounds on Footbook.


    Now, something for Fruity to ease his poorly footsies:


    See, you need sunglasses to use these they're so totally like rad man!



    Laters all.

    Goodness Fruity Snorkles and how to not change your smalls!!!!

    LUN today is not over yet - Stork may still arrive.
    The shopping arrangements is deff not faffing, cos I do's that.
    I did try one of those crazy things in pic - It just took off leaving me on the pavement.
    Lamb yes I think we all know you love it - but thanks for the reminder.

    I have just finished my very large shop and I am sat here din-dins cooking taking a rest.
    I was only away a week and half the town shops have closed down!
    Back to annoy you all laterers

    Good heavings all

    Currently sat here watching the news like How very sad, my place of work has staff who have relatives there all ok as far as I know. The church attached to my school are doing a huge collection of clothes, household items, food, blankets etc and there's me moaning about having to work. Shame on me.

    Loving fruities new vehicle . Give us a seater. That's what my brother used to give me on his chopper bike. Or a crossbar. How very old I am. The five week undercrackers love it. Let us know if it works Sleazy. Maybe when I start work at urs we can practice origami with your Y Fronts

    LUN mega maid reminded me of merry maid sweets, toffee covered in chocolate in individual wrappers. Shame I can't eat toffee now

    Hi Moti Maid
    I am sure Fruity has some strange contraption that looks like a loo on a lawn mower.

    Mystic Tips uses Tarot - we had a thread last year.

    I do think it is wonderful that we all come together in times of crisis.

    Now, where is Squeezy? I feel in the mood for teasing.

    Good Evening.
    I knew that you'd both be pleased to see my happy smiling face.
    Sleazy the clown, huh? Let's tease him why don't we? He can take it .... . OK I'm joking alright .... hope that you both are ok. seems like Mrs Motivator likes my new name for her , so henceforth known as Mega Maid in my book ......

    Just passin' through, although I might be lurking like a scary clown in the dark .... hehehe
