    Ah, Fruity you sure are a man of many talents.
    Do you do Ventriloquism or ventriloquy?

Needs to be moluscary in order to fight through all me gubbins that has built up over the last hundred year or so (me, my dad, and his dad afore him to be naming just a few of we). Have you seen the armz of our Rosie's avatary? Scarier nor my clown I rekon! Thinkz that we best be polite to her loike if she be round 'ere laterer.

    Misty - me drinking cidee with our Rosie? Oi be on the old wagon today 'cos it foinally remembered to stop by here, and oi thought that you werz going to encurig me to ride-a-whoile loike.

    LUN it'll be alrighty on the nighty (not the nightie) .

    STILL no stork!
    (We need an emojii for pulling hair out )
    No signs either - though the better half is trying induction via telephony.
    'S not workin' though!


    I is most impressed with both your hoss and your ventril er ventral Tom, Fruity. You is talented indeed; me I'm more a "builder" doer than a "maker" doer IYSWIM; I built our conservatory, made our kitchen (sans doors), replace bathrooms etc.
    They looks brill. (Yours, not mine.)




    Moti, I gotta admit Fruity made me LOL too at that.
    I am full of admiration for you - IMHO only those teaching older mini-me's are more deserving of praise. Not for a triple pension could I, and I have "guest"ed in classes a few times so I do have some understanding.
    Not much, but some.


    Tips, DD has seen Midwifey person today. But still nuffink definite till next week if it's still a no-show.


    Gotcha A-OK Sleazy, you thortfull fella. I'm now pondering origami ..............
    You reckon it'll be a nighty?
    Mrs LUN also reckons we'll get a call in the middle of the night.

    We don't have a pond but friends here also curse herons.
    I didn't realise there were so many but we often see one.
    And storks.
    Just not when they're needed.


    I has just been chattin' wiv a lickle robin - not our "usual" one but still friendly. Examining my herb garden, it was.
    Maybe too friendly - it only had one leg.

    LUN I always believed butter was better than Stork.
    A one legged robin??? How did it perch????

    Why do most car park attendants of the underground car parks, all walk with a lisp and talk with a limp?
    Is it the lack of natural light, or are they all descendants of the Morlocks?

    Hopefully some scaffolding will have grown by the time we return.

    No comments about erections please. Stop sniggering at the back!

    Yawn - Afternoonings
    I have been lazing around so far, then I remembered - It's my favourite day!
    Fruity I hope that your ummm - planks and poles are put up on your return.
    I also hope Mrs Fruity is ok.

    Sleazy I imagine your eyes are sorted by now, and you are sat with Heathcliff.
    I now have reading glasses, but they do seem a little strong. The expense
    DWP I have to deal with them for two of my relatives, they always seem to get something wrong.

    I will pop back later when my brain is more awake.

    Four men came and had an ... put up choobs and boards for me. Unfortunately the satellite signal is now blocked as a result.
    We will have to do everything on demand vs the internet now, which thankfully is not affected.

    My Lovely was a bit pixalated at first because she had to be sedated, but she is stable again now.

    Oh, dear Fruity your poor lovely - Glad she is settled now.
    Satellite blocked!!!! Sue them - only joking.
    We are thinking of getting a Smart TV, we have several old hard drive things but they keep letting us down. We of course then have to resort to the interweb and use the HD lead. We really don't watch a lot of TV so Sky is a no no. In my loft we still have an antique Betamax recorder, my Father brought it back from Saudi and we were the first in my neighbourhood to have a recording device.
    LUN will laugh when I say we are only on episode 2 of Taboo, which was broadcast in Jan.

    Now I was thinking of poor Ellie, when we had the new roof put on, the little whippet below, who doesn't like workmen, got her teeth into one of their trousers and would not let go. Just watching him trying to climb up, dog in tow was funny.

    Talking of mist Sleazy, it is back, it is because the sea is just across the road.

    What is it with these new sayings - Oh my Days! For me it would be - Oh my daze.
