    Or Mistress T, like a character from one of Terry Pratchett's books.

    Good avo all and one.

    My review was ... OK, but I'm retaining fluid so my water tablets have been doubled.

    Please excuse me, I need to go somewhere ...NOW!


    ... Mafeking has been relieved.

    I am now cooking Moroccan lamb bangers with slimming wold chips and apple frangipane to follow. The latter will be outdated on Saturday so alas I am just going to have to get stuck into it.

    No word from daughter of LUN yet? Whatever happened to your prediction Tips? I think LUN might want his money back.
    Speaking of money, two banks in the village have closed. Luckily my main one is still here but I don't know for how long.

    Moti, what do you do for a living if you don't mind me asking? (I'm just being nosey.) By the look of your avatar I thought you may be related to Rosie the Riveter.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    All my screwdrivers are cordless.

    Sorry, Sleazy I keeps a missing yous. I wanted to ask if you if you ever drinks Cider with Rosie?
    I was thinking of starting a thread on preferences on alcohol, maybe like - Ale vs Wine. Mind you tis quiet at the Arms, due to the lovely weatherings - Sun is back now.

    Fruity doubled!!!! Tis a difficult thing to deal with when out and about. But a necessary one, as water retention does put a strain on the ticker - same wiv me late Daddy. Although Dad had many more probs.
    Fruity your culinary skills exceed you. Have you not tried couscous as an accompaniment?

    I suppose I better join in wiv the clown stuff.

    Not only do I have culinary skills, I'm quite good at cooking as well.

    Scaffolding is booked for tomoz. Solar panel mens booked for Woden'sday.

    Here are some pics of Tom the ventriloquist doll on Rocky, MFTE's horse what I made for him.

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

    You are indeed a man of many talents my old fruit, but oim afeared that Rosie be eary-marked to be my maid. I likes a good molusculary cleaner around me house. 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) .

    Rosie - wasn't me, it were Fruity. Honest.

    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.

    Laters all, I's orf to cook then in a while bathe son.

    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?

    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.
