    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.

    WE MISS YOU - I hope he reads that!

    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.
    Facebook messenger video calling - who could be without it. So much better than skype.
    Well, I must bid farewell for now.

    Please, Moti and all no more talk of ........ It just feeds them.

    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.

    Laterers

    Forgive me thread for I have strayed .......... that's what happens when I get the chance to read during daytime.


    I'm not really here though.


    As someone asked so nicely:


    Now I must do some work.
    Laterers all.

    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.

    Three cheers for Mrs Fruity!

    Yup, baby Lun is a real beaut - I will get another foo photies reddy laterer if I get a chance.
    If I do you'll see the hair which is one reason why I calls 'er a female Dennis The Menace.


    It has been an expensive year Tips yes - but not all necessary more like "wants" really.
    The bed mattress yes, necessary and we got a decent one.
    But the cooker no, it was just that I saw the induction one really cheap & the oven on the old one wasn't good.
    The fridge no either - but finding a decent 6' larder fridge on offer and even cheaperer coz I bought the oven, well .............
    New tumble drier - nope either, & I reckon it's been used twice BUT it's summer.
    Me telly?
    Move on ................. (it's a "boys & toys" thing.)
    But baby stuff is necessary, innit?


    Oh.
    Am I keeping UK shops going all on my ownsome?

    But the old boiler is a very apt description.
    It has had quite a few new "bits" over the past few years & now it needs more, and we need a new hot water tank because this one has sprung a lickle leak, and ........... well you get the idea.

    Like I said earlier, I'm starting to think it'll be cheaper to knock the place down and rebuild!
    New boilers are condensing.
    Which means a pipe to take condensate away.
    But it's a solid floor and an inside wall.
    Result = no cheap option.


    But that's enuff o' that!
    How is everypeeps?
