    Hi Misty, glad that you're ok.
    Went out this morning on bus with wifey when she went to work. Visited my elderly mother, bought flavoured water (YES, still on the wagon), then off to Wuthering Heights for veggie sausage roll and coffee.
    Now home again, relaxing inside as too hot outside.

    Good afternoonings all and sticky ones.

    Twas very hote going around the boat, but most interesting. Lovely lunch, piccy of it to follow, plus ice cream.

    Afterwards we did a boat tour of the docks and 'arbour, then us picked up (got on, not lifted it literal like) the semi-roofed omnibus again and did the rest of the tour around the city before arriving back at the hotel.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    All my screwdrivers are cordless.

    Still waiting!


    Well it has not been hot here, it's pleasantly cool. Very grey, too.
    Which has allowed me to finish edging etc. in the garden without melting, at least.


    Tips, yup re: Nanny but exacerbating existing long-term eyesight problem which has some very long-winded technical name. But her very poor eyesight is why we're constantly on edge (bless 'er) because she's determinedly as active as she knows how, using our admittedly poor bus service to travel to nearby towns etc.

    Thing is, she can't even see the bus step or cars approaching (she has no peripheral vision at all) so we know from experience that she has for example the habit of stepping off pavements straight onto a road! The word "scary" does not go far enough.
    It can make shopping fun ........... so long as you can stand at a distance and observe. The times she knocks things over ..........


    Still on that wagon Sleazy?
    Will you come off it at weekends like Tips & her wine or are you trying a prolonged spell on the wagon?


    Ah, visits to boats for Fruity.
    Plus ice cream, lucky you.
    I see Tips didded a Fred on that, I must post. Who doesn't like a good scream, eh?

    Moti, I do hope your little (?) un's are behaving in this heat?
    Again, you has my admiration & sympathies.


    As you orl knows by now, DD is due for admission (no, not "it was me, guv!") tomorrow late afternoonb/early effernink.
    Whether or not I will be here or there is as yet therefore unknown.
    I must build my strength in preparation for the ladies of the family, covering what will then be four generations all in a tent dance.
    Literally.


    Toodles all.

    Good eveninks LUN, glad that you sound cheerful. Hot enuf for you? Yes I am still wagoneering, hopefully for a few weeks ... now about that tent dance - Our Rosie could maybe give a few tips on dancin' around handbags loike.

    Our cat has an injury - we noticed a couple of days ago. Not sure whether somebody has taken a pot shot with an air gun. It's on his head, but he doesn't seem to be in pain and is eating normally. When I first noticed it there was a smell of bad fish around the wound, so I'm really confused.

    Good Evening to you all

    Fruity I am so glad you got your break away as it really was well deserved. I must venture back to Christchurch for a trip on the boat again. I like Mudeford so quaint- it is the name that makes me laugh.

    LUN that is very sad about Nanny - same with my MIL, the tales I could tell. But sadly she has the final stages of dementia now and is in a care home. She will be 94 this year, produced 9 children.
    Let us hope that all goes well for Mum and new baby tomorrow. We can then celebrate.
    I think the early hours - but that is just my inkling.

    Poor Bobbie Sleazy I hope he is OK.

    Where is Moti - I am missing her.

    Hi honey I'm home
    When I finally got on here I had so much to catch up on. Haven't disappeared honest.

    Been in exams today, the temperature in the room reached 34 degrees imagine this, 100 15-16 year old kids all in one room, 34 degrees, it was the afternoon so they had been playing football, basketball and whatever games you little boys play . All sweating. Well the nostrils took a bashing I can tell you. It should be made illegal lol

    Sleazy your cat hope he's ok, maybe he's caught his head, does he go under cars or summink ? Keep them wheels on that wagon now

    LUN I have everything crossed for you, this baby will be along very soon I'm sure. We will all fall off the wagon and have a little light refreshment to celebrate.

    Fruity wanna swap your luvvly relaxing break for Hell on earth with a sprinkle of teenagers.

    Tipster did you find anything interesting to do today, you could always come to work with me. You get a free clothes peg or should that be nose peg

    Is this weather set to lighten up any time soon. I have sports day on Thursday outside all day with no shade. Someone up there is not very fond of me me thinks

    Good afternoon folks.
    Misty - you were first here today!

    I've been rushing around like a 'mad thing' today, but succeeded to take Bobby to the Vet, come home, go to my local Lidl and now finally back home again (hot and worn out)!
    Vet thought that said feline had hurt his head in a bush perhaps - trimmed the fur around the area, washed the wound, gave me some solution to wash it at home and took £40 or thereabouts. For a 15 minute visit, I make that £160 per hour ...

    Fruity - hope you are having a good time in Brizle and weather holding out for you. I saw your piccy of that gert big bridge and you planning on goin' over it? I already told you to take care ....

    Still nowt, hospital due @ 1800 hours & after that ? ? ? ?

    Thank you all for your support and patience.
    I will request of daughter that she and child keep us all in suspenders no longer, so I will post updates when I can in between the taxiing
    that is sure to follow.
    There is a special bottle or two which has been chilling for longer than it should in readiness for celebrations, so when the opportunity arises I will toast you all too.
    Or three or maybe four.



    Take care all & I will update as soon as there is nooz and I am able.

    I will pop in later and tune in to LUN news.

    We did that there bridge and the viewings were spectaclibule despite the footpath on one side being closed off.

    Glad you took Bobby to be checked Sleazy. Tis true that vets have to train longer than our GPs. They also earn more obviously. I know even with pet insurance you have to fork out quite a bit. Give Bobby a stroke from me.

    LUN your poor daughter in this heat. I reckon this is a very special little lady.
    Take care and all I am sure will be well. I bought you some cherries today.

    Fruity I hope you put sunblock on today. Hope for an update later.

    Thinking of you Moti.

    I love waiting for baby news come on LUN junior. Let's hope it's not like the London buses. You wait ages for one and then two come along at once

    Sounds like your cat has been investigating in the bushes Sleazy. Maybe you could get him a little deer stalker hat for when he ventures outside investigating again.

    Tips it's horrendous being in a classroom as you well know. But tomorrow's sports day I have been given a very important job. I am officially a 'Hydration assistant' that's what it actually says. Basiacally handing out water all day.

    Fruity I hope you are having a lovely time messing about on the water.

    Have returned home from work to 6 topless men cooking burgers and sausages in my garden DS and DH and friends, it sounds like there are 20 of them out there but at least I don't have to cook. Just the washing up for me then LOL

    Will be checking back for the patter of tiny feet soon

    Sleazy I paid into pet insurance for 9 years. Had vet bills for £1100 last week and couldn't claim a penny back. My own fault for not reading the micro print but still takes the Michael. Lesson learned the hard way there.

    Hope he recovers soon with some TLC.
