    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.

    Yes, you are Fruity and very clever at that.
    I will post another tomorrow. I don't want to overdo things. But you may prefer my other style.

    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.

    LUN it was hubby doing the splashing - he didn't think to take it down.
    No, I will paint over some day - no more splashes.

    Moti - loving the gif.

    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.

    Still nuffink; no signs at all. Dinner eaten without interruption - unless you count Nanny's various rumblings & the less said about those the better.


    Hozzy arranged for Woden's Day arvo if the stork don't come afore then ..... so we'll wait and see.
    There's a carfull of stuff to take with us from clothes to (extra) crib and baby monitor, so the expecting SIL has been warned he will need his works van!


    What an absolutely glorious day it is.
    The garden beckons for a post-lunch nap (Yeah, like I should be so lucky! ) which in reality = entertaining DS and keeping Nanny out of trouble.

    Laterers all.

    I've been out in the garden. I've got a load of buckets with things growing in them, i wasn't sure if some where plants or weeds, so i've left them to get a bit bigger before sorting out what to keep and what to bin. Just about to dig stuff out of one and, there's a birds egg, a white one, there. It must be using the bucket as a nest.
    So carefully put it back where i picked it up from, will leave those weeds and watch out to see if the Mum comes back. I do feed the birds every day, so lots of them come for their breakfast and tea.

    LUN - You do make me laugh with your Nanny posts.

    A very warm welcome Sam. Do stay a while - as you have always made me laugh.
    So many buckets with no holes. It was a good job you spotted the egg.

    I will pop back later.
