    Tips, shall we sing a duet?



    Tea is over, shopping has arrived by Mr Morrisons mechanised horseless carriage, and the ladies are putting it away.

    I'm off to check on progress at home soonly and also to look for my camera. I've been taking pics of the inversion every so often but now I can't remember where I left the camera.
    I thought I left it here at the Folly annexe after downloading the last lot of pics, but it is nowhere to be found.

    Don't start on me again Fruity I was nowhere near your camera. Remember you have a tendency to blame the strong woman that lurks here sometimes.

    Tips it's not quiet anymore here leave the cooking and enjoy some sunshine yourself

    I am in good spirits for some unknown reason. Even though I covered a GCSE drama lesson today. 15 x 16 year old boys It was like Beirut in the drama studio. Was also asked "Miss where are you from" I stupidely asked why. To which he replied "you sound like Big Mo on Eastenders" Don't you just luv em.

    I emerged in one piece and live to see another day.

    Hi, Moti Big Mo - Are you a fan of Big Elvis?

    Fruity, of course, we can have a sing song.

    Now I am worried about Sleazy - Not the same without him.

    Where is LUN this fine evening?

    Righty-ho, all catched up.
    The whether has been rather gory haggis here two day.

    I'm pleased you had a safe journey Fruity, even if it did lead to torture by vampire.
    Rosie, it's not long now for both you and Mrs Sleazy to be free of the Gulags; enjoy your break, you deserve it.
    Which brings me too to two wonder if Sleazy is alrighty since I note three little letters below his name ?
    Thinking of you, fella.

    Tips, aren't you supposed to go to the bank before shopping?
    What happened while I was away?

    Anybody can still access parts of the forum you don't need to sign in for.
    Registered users are not allowed to discuss bans etc. but often they are the result of some of the nastier users pressing the "report" button below each post.
    There have been suggestions in parts of these forums that some users kinda club together and multiple-report.
    Not saying that is what has occurred mind, just educating.

    Phew!!!
    The banking was for my Uncle, not me.
    I never thought about using his money for my shopping.
    How is that little beauty?
    Does your son like the little one?

    I have explained to Moti.

    Back to Pinocchio.

    Only teasin'.

    That little booty seems to be just fine, DD and Mrs LUN video-call each other almost daily and we just learned today that she is putting weight on okay.

    Son loves (and is good with) babies so yes, he approves - but with work & the distance taking almost two hours, we won't be visiting too often.
    There is talk of a family hol next year, with parents both sides going too so that's one to look forward too.


    Rosie .............. what can I say?

    That sounds absolutely lovely and a holiday to look forward to.

    Good evening all and one.

    Well the camera is officially lost. I worry that I had a senior moment and it somehow got put in a box that went to a charity shop.

    I had planned to get a better one with a good quality optical zoom in the hope we shall be doing some whale/dolphin/basking shark watching when we go on hols. It looks like I shall have to buy it earlierer than planned.

    It's good to hear that little LUN is doing well, and countdowns nearly over for those in the Hooligan Manufactory industry.

    It's telly and hand holding time by here now.

    Byes all, including absent friends.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    All my screwdrivers are cordless.

    Morning all

    I was up with the birds again ready to fight another day. I can see the finish line now

    Hope you all have something nice planned for the day and not too stressful.

    Seems like the sunshine is back for the day here.
    Fruity what a shame about your camera, how frustrating.

    I can't wait to have a little LUN to spoil, did you see what I just did there

    Good morning all and one from a dry and sunny Riviera.

    After my Lovely has been to Slimming World we shall be taking the Money Pit for its annual check-up, plus it needs some work to keep it on the straight and narrow.
    It will pass, but it's a question of how much it's going to cost to make it so. *sigh*

    Rosie, I can fully understand why you are looking forward to reaching the finish line.

    I has snuck in for a quickie.


    Oh Fruity, I hope that you at least got the photo's you wanted off the camera? You realise of course that in three years' time as you hunt for a lost whatever that the darned thing will appear, in someplace you've already looked at least a gazillion times before?

    Rosie ........ you want a little LUN?
    No, no - I must resist a snappy retort.

    Another chunk nearer your finishing line though, yup.


    I must go since another plumber fella has now "Hmm"-ed with some sharp intakes of breath. (New heating boiler etc.) I may be cheaper to knock the place down and rebuild.


    Laterers all.

    Good Morning all
    Fruity phone the charity shop up and tell them of your mistake. Surely it is worth a call.
    I do like the pic for Rosie.

    LUN we always love a pic of your latest - we could do with cheering up sometimes, and that always puts a smile on my face. You seem to have a lot of expense. I remember when you bought a new cooker not that long ago. Then there was a set of new pans. New Boilers don't come cheap.

    Rosie, I will catch up with you later. No getting all broody if LUN is kind enough to post another pic.

    Mrs F has found my camera! Huzza. It was on the parcel shelf of her car. The car I had searched twice.
    I obviously put it there and then had a senior moment.

    Little LUN looks like a good 'UN, LUN.

    Rosie, if you are after a little-lun of your own, why don't you borrow one of your stroppy teenagers for a weekend and see if you still feel the same way on Monday.

    Tips, is it shop day again, or is today the one day of the week when you stay at home.
