    Good evening, hope you are all OK.

    Lots of peeps seem to be going for blood tests, DH went for one last week as well! Hope they are all OK for you.

    I don't do spiders either LOL.

    Hope someone can help me here. TV came yesterday and it looks lovely, only problem is I can't find out who posted the comp so I can thank them so if anyone can help me find it I would be really grateful. Its a 4K High Sense HD Smart 43" TV and it was with Premier Stores from what the lady said on the phone.

    I do hope that anyone with children going to school or college, whether you are parents or GP's that they all had a good start to the new term.

    Hope you are enjoying your G & T tonight firefly and love your picture today thank you.

    Must get on.
    BIG THANKS TO ALL WHO POST THE COMPETITIONS

    Good morning everyone


    It's another glorious weather day here at the mo ....





    so I've got a tough decision to make .... gardening or
    painting the inside of the garage! I didn't carry on with
    the painting yesterday because the weather was so
    gorgeous that I couldn't resist getting out in the garden
    for an hour or more!


    Very well done winning £5 on Quidco sheils! Must admit
    I've not attempted it - must have a peek today.


    Pleased your blood test went ok fire**fly. I don't mind
    having the test but can't watch the deed being done!
    I have to look away!


    Your TV sounds gorgeous sylv - am fairly jealous. Enjoy!


    Well - had best get going cos I'm already way behind this
    morning.


    Have a wonderful day all and please take care whatever
    your up to. xx

    think nurse thinks i'm a bit loopy
    as I sit looking up at the ceiling humming to myself

    Feels chilly here this morning.

    Pleased your TV came Sylvia sounds good.

    Sounds as though loads of blood tests in the Inn. Hope everyone keeps well and that you are better Rose.

    Firefly GS wasn't ill just wound up. He was very quiet after school when we picked him up yesterday. I thinking everyone was pleased holidays were over. Picking him up again today. We only do it a couple of days each month when DD1 works on her usual days off.

    Alfie hope you continue with your painting or you will keep thinking about it.
    Here I've had another Goodreads win this morning. Over the summer I did manage to read some of my goodread wins.

    Suns out here now let's hope it stays. Good luck everyone.

    Another wet day here so enjoy the sunshine all those who have got it. Don't paint Alfie!
    DD is away to Newcastle with bf to celebrate their two year "going out anniversary" so wish the weather was better for them. DD got lots of lovely little presents including a choc button tree, teddy and flowers.
    Seems a long time since DH and I gave anniversary presents although we do go away, eat out and make sure we have some kind of bubbly.
    We are on cat minding duties.

    I always hated seeing my blood being taken too FF. Always looked away but remember once the Dr shaking it in my face saying this looks fine!
    He was a friend and pretty sure he did it deliberately.

    Well done on another book win leanfun. I was never lucky with Goodreads for some reason. Chilly here too.

    Good luck everyone.

    The rain has stopped! Will need to get out quickly and have a walk I think before it comes back. (showers forecast for later)
    Have Angus to go and see to anyway. DD and BF don't get back until tonight as they are making the most of their night away.

    Hope everyone has a lovely day and good luck.

    Good morning all


    I had a very productive day yesterday in the garden - the
    weather was glorious.


    It's rained through the night and I think we're due more
    today so it's off to the garage I go later to say hi to the
    spiders and continue with the painting.


    Sounds as if your DD and bf are having a wonderful
    time sheils - celebrating their two year "going out
    anniversary". Hope puddy cat sitting is going well.



    Here I've had another Goodreads win this morning. Over the summer I did manage to read some of my goodread wins.

    Morning, wet start to the day here. I am getting paranoid about spiders at the moment as girl at work went to bed and one big spider dropped on her face! She said she run downstairs and slept on the sofa all night.. I haven't seen any yet but know they are coming in for mating. Hope Charlie keeps them away. I don't mind the little ones but big ones...yuk!
    Well done on the book win leanfun, you can never have too many books in this house. All 3 of us read.
    I have today off but unless the weather changes won't be moving out the house. Hope you all have a good day.

    Thanks everyone re book win. Yes, I have been very lucky with book wins. I'm extra careful with entries after I win a sci fi book and I'm not into that. It's surprising with Goodreads as I don't enter that many.

    Lo to spiders. We don't have many here but where son has been staying there are plenty.

    It's very cold and grey here rain not started yet.

    Hope you get a walk in and cat was ok Sheils. Let's hope your DD and Bf enjoyed their break. Time seems to have gone quickly since you set they were together.

    Alfie hope you make good progress with painting.

    Indie enjoy your day off.

    Rose hope you are fully much better.

    Take care Fireflyand Sylvia

    Hope everyone has a good and lucky weekend.

    Good morning everyone


    Hope you're all ok. It's a bright n' breezy start to the
    day here but a tad on the chilly side at the mo - quite
    autumnal.


    My goodness ... yesterday afternoon we had so much
    rain that I started to think about constructing one of
    these!





    It was absolutely tipping it down - never seen anything like
    it!

    Got on quite well in the garage yesterday - slow but sure.
    May take me a few more days yet - and yes the spiders are all
    behaving themselves fire**fly - still find myself apologising
    to them though!








    Have a wonderful day all and please take care whatever

    Morning all,

    Bit chilly here but rain has stopped (know what you mean about an ark Alfie) Did get out in the morning yesterday which was better than it had been. So hate being stuck in the house. Waiting for it to heat up a bit before we go for a walk today - sun is trying although looks quite feeble.
    Dd got back about 9pm last night so cat duties are finished. They seemed to have a lovely time although the weather wasn't good. They had a nice night out at Comedy Club in Newcastle and some nice meals out.
    DS3 driving me mad trying to make up mind whether to take one of other jobs he has offers for or stay at Gleneagles. He has been offered big pay rise and promotion if he stays so I think he is going to. He would have liked to move to Glasgow though so doubt he will say that much longer. (girl involved too!)
    Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

    Don't know if anyone has been shopping in Tesco the last few days but they are wanting people to round up their bills to nearest 10p for charity.
    I didn't know anything about it until Sylvia mentioned it so I checked my last receipt and mine had been rounded up without anyone asking. Only 7p and obviously I can afford it and don't grudge it but annoyed it was taken without checking it was ok. Anyway, have moaned on twitter and FB as feel the staff can't be trained about it properly as person who served me knows me well.
    After moaning I went on Quidco and won £50!
    Maybe I should moan more often
