    Happy birthday Rosemary.

    Good morning to the rest of the world as well.

    Today was annual shower day so I am now squeaky clean.

    It's quiet in here today so I shall throw the doors open and put the blackboard signs out the front to attract passing trade.

    Good afternoon all and one. We are expecting a visit from MFTY to collect some furniture which has thrown our plans to sort out the travel in-sewer-ants into confusion.
    I suspect that will now be this evening's job.

    Chats laterer.

    . Hi all phew I'm in.

    I have constantly been kicked out of the site I'm not sure it was my internet either as I was able get onto most other sites. I was panicking for a while.

    I was feeling left out of all the fun. Hope I haven't missed to much naughtiness while I was lurking in the shadows. I need on speed dial in case it happens again.

    Hi Pete, ash and anyone else who pops in.

    Just popped in to say hello all.
    Son is in the bath & it seems we have plans after that - which is nooze to me but hey! I only live here.

    I see Tips is cookin' lamb ............. and we had chicken.
    Even if it WAS good chicken, it ain't lamb.

    Moti, I too use 'ickle spoons when I have a tub of I scream. It doesn't stop me reachin' the bottom of those tubs though.
    Recently wiv some scummy Greek honey & nut stuff from Lidl.

    Fruity, I hope you get your in sewer ants sorted.
    BTW I am up to "Eric" this time round.
    I keep getting prodded by Mrs LUN for chortlin' when I should be sleepin' or somesutch.

    This site often has times where it is "flakey" - nothin' new there at all. Fortunately it has beed okay for me - but I isn't here much any more.

    Right, I have been shouted.
    Have fun all.

    Also watching Pretty Woman. That's the film, sadly I'm not looking in the mirror.

    Oh, dear missed LUN.
    Never mind I can't stay long.

    Moti you are a pretty woman I posted your pic remember.
    I tried to keep our friend's little cat but he escaped - loves his master too much.
    I have this old song stuck in my head. Reminds me of when I was a kid at the funfair.
    Funny how we link songs to our memories.

    In the words of Dixon of Dock Green, evening all.

    That's another load of furniture shipped out, two car loads to be precise.

    Hmmm, ice cream. *Fruity wanders off to find a chocolate covered ice cream on a stick*
    Not bad, I'm only wearing a small amount of it. I'm sure it will come out in the wash.

    LUN, the furniture moving was unplanned and now I've run out of time for today, so the in-sewer-ants has had to be postponed again.
