    Still no noos!

    I has beed shopping for strawberries, plus Sunday dindins - fancied pork so a nice bit of loin wiv cracklin' ready for Nanny tomorrow.

    Tips, the photo of strawbs looks kinda nice but I prefers mine just wiv extra fick cream if pawsibubbles. Though they does also go very nice wiv goosegogs in pies/tarts AND they makes a scrummy bread'n'butter pud if ya use brown bread.

    Wots the bettin' that as dinner is cookin' .....................

    Fruity, your Sky box needs threatenining with a length of that toobing. Strangely our box was susceptible to interference & blinking too - but that changed when we went Freesat & got a Humax box a foo years ago. IIRC we had to re-set it about once every 2 or 3 months, just turn it off & leave it a few mins before re-booting it.
    I'm wondering how big your loft is ................... as ours here would take about ten minutes to clear!
    Because there's nuffink in it - it is easy to get round but the in Sue lay shun is way above the beams, so you can't see where to walk or put stuff without risking collapsed ceilings. The only bit is the walkway to the water header tanks & they is that well lagged that it's impossible to tell what they are if you don't already know.


    Sleazy, there is no way could I do our shopping by bus.
    And not only because there's only two buses a week here!


    Moti, if deliveries are like OUR postman makes it'll arrive clad in shorts and left behind wheelie bins with a red-trimmed card shoved through the door even if someone's home!


    It's been a real scorcher here - now I is orf into the garden again wiv more ickle lights plus sum birdy-spoiling bits.
    Laters all.

    I got all excited when I saw a post from you LUN.
    I keep telling you it will be a Wednesday.
    Extra thick spooning cream is exactly what I use.
    I have roast beef for tomorrow with yorkies and thick gravity.

    Fruity I am glad you have had enough, I really don't want to read that you have been overdoing things.

    Sleazy using a tabby today -the problem is getting it back in the box.


    I have been mooching today. The beach is full of kiddies with all manner of inflated things.
    I walked back home through woodland walk and got bombarded with pine cones.
    I felt like chiken licken thinking a piece sky had fallen on me.

    Oh LUN, still no noows.

    Our loft is simply an A shaped hole the length and width of the house with roofs and floor. No obstructions, no Matilda Tank, nuffink apart from a couple of aerials, except all the stuff on the floor collected over the last 35 years.
    One of the first jobs I did when I bought the place was to make the loft hatch much biggerer, with corresponding sized hole of course, and put in a decent sectional loft ladder.
    Next I covered the central section which is over 3m wide with flooring grade chipboard then covered the rest with the panels from two old kitchens.

    At one time I had two motoring bicycles up there. Now it is half full of MFTE's stuff as he doesnae have room to store it at his place. It will be subjected to a serious culling on Monday as he is coming tomozz for daddy's day.

    I've just put the small rocking horse made in the sixties in my workshop for later restoration, but the big horse will have to stay until one or both kids has room for theirs.

    There currently be hairy planes without a-cause of a nearby hairday. Sumpink big is up making big noises at the mo, but there are too many houses in the way to see it.

    That's really good. I can paint a wall or a ceiling. I can also draw ... money from a hole in the wall.

    An artiste though, I aint. I am a craftsman though.

    I too doesn't mind your photo's here Tips - and espeshully if they's like that one.

    I have tried art & painting but like Fruity, it ain't my forte.
    It ain't even my single.


    Just one question.
    WHO emulsioned your artwork?
    Ah, okay two questions.

    The next being - have you considered adding further emulsion splashes and going for a bit of a Jackson Pollock mash-up?


    Fruity, I seem to remember sometime before your mention of a motorbike in your loft.

    Not meaning to put doubt in your mind (coz ours is a damp house; always was though I have improved that to some degree) but I had our loft floored before the addition of more in Sue lay shun. Like you, old wardrobe panels utilised in less-used areas. But damp was such a problem we got condensation on the underside and mould growth in the loft, so the flooring was all removed (and subsequently much ventilation added). So now, no storing of bits in our loft.


    Well, DD says she's getting "twinges".
    I'm thinking it's more to do with how warm it is than any desire to say "Hello world" - but like I said, I fully expect an early-hours phone call.
    Soon, I hope.

    No, I will paint over some day - no more splashes.

    Ladies, I'm impressed with both your talents. I can only paint walls. Hope to see more examples from you both.

    LUN, there is plenty of ventilititation in our lofticles and never a damp moment as a result.

    Sleazy, my pacemaker has been set to "England playing rugby" mode for a while.

    Tips, I never thought I would say this but I am going off Dr Foreman. The plot lines are a bit weak and as for the lighting tonight, even with the blinds drawn we could hardly see what was going on. Twas disappointing.

    Moti, that painting is ... still better than I could do.

    Yes, Fruity that is exactly what I planned.
    The banter is far more important.

    Moti - that really made me laugh. You are so suited to this thread.

    Mr Sleazy I keeps a missing yous - now I will have to make up for it.

    I will catch up with LUN on the morrow.
    Wine time now.
    Have a lovely evening all and I will be back tomoz.

    Good morning all and one. Tis yet another sun-kissed day by here on the Riviera.

    When I let Ellie out this morning we were greeted by the site of a murder of crows swooping acrawst the jardin. There were so many they could have been mistaken for rooks.

    Well the fambly is going to descend on us today so I shall have to get dressed up for it. No slouching around in my undercrackers, even though I'm only into week three.

    My heart has just about settled back after yesterdegg's rugby. Another well matched game, and what a brillig last try.
    Well done to the women's rugby team as well. It's a shame they don't get the TV coverage they do be a-deserving.
