    Lost my post - token ran out? Help please?
    token running out very annoying (though not quite as annoying as running out of tea or loo roll or milk...) best thing i find is 'click to go back' (left arrow) then copy whole post then refresh whole page then type one space then paste (i couldn't get paste to work without first typing in space). token used to be sign of spending too long writing post but this hols seems to time out very quickly. perhaps i'm just getting slower in my old age.
    just back from 5km fun run at botanics so feeling very :A
    I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday

    This occurs if you are too slow and old chief MSE throws you out. I understand that & is very good at this!

    Oy there! Monsieur le bop(since our best stoker lurves les Français), & has bait taken.
    You'd be bien d!çu autrement:-), so call that your shiny new 2018 pressie.
    No train set to match it.
    Fenny notspottery is lowlands mired. That's why signals don't arrive all that often, or unwrinklied.
    Twas ever thus, much worsened over last several years.

    Live broadcast presently from The Gallops, town of horse -

    1. Free cappuccino consumed, while wondering why coatless, carless, hatless walking couple are already several miles to nowhere. It's pouring here, correct Lainey?

    2. Was astounded to see centre spread on the young RNZAF pilot, post passim. He was 25, dying in early war years, even before & was born.

    3. Being confused by R4 afternoon play, Elsinore, supposedly Hamlet prequel thingy? Vjm, you may reflect on comment chain in another place.... ))))

    4. So many birds busy munching and brave little coal tit was first to kitchen window feeder this a.m. Put it up, under old nest, several days ago. It's interesting to see who goes for what and the mugging dynamics which follow. Berry suet block is popular with many. Had to hunt for it and push it back into coconut shell earlier. Seedy spelt loaf, emporium rtc 25p, will be hurled onto garden room roof later.

    5. It really is pretty vile out today and you're returning to it, vl. Please just keep the yellow thing on until & Channel hops at weekend. Note to Mrs SD - normally, we rely on Raffles, 4-foot fur lord of house of bop, but he has been slacking since last year.
    Now lashing down again and 1 lady, 1 Lab., 1 Boxer have just set off into it. Owner is not as bouncy and runabouty as they are.

    Note the rough sleepers' bedding in the main street is all sodden. 3 doors/walls/overhangs are currently occupied, but more are elsewhere.

    Take care everyone. Oh, a no.6 can be signing up for Martin's MOT reminder thingy. It worked. Peace of mind until October.
    #
    p.s. Must add that token-ism is unknown to &. Have never seen any mention.

    We both seem to have snizzly head colds and the day has been l o n g to say the least, looking forward to bedtime and being able to lay down.

    Pleasures are domestic and small today and have been very necessary too!

    1) Hot drinks whenever we've wanted them.

    2) A comfy warm armchair to curl up in.

    3) A woodstove to light when it got cold after lunch and enough prepared wood to burn in it to keep the lounge toasty warm.

    4) Balsam tissues, wonderfully soft and gentle on sore noses.

    5)A peacock butterfly that had obviously been hibernating in the wood pile and woke up to flap noisily in the window until I rescued it and let it go outside. Hopefully it will find it's way back into shelter and sleep until the warmer weather comes.

    LaineyT,

    Started persisting just as I was about to go out to the P.O. so didn’t bother

    Pleasures today

    1. Emptied 3rd Sewing box - the missing legs were inside! DH will free cycle as a “project”. If someone wants it I will also give them the small sewing box as an extra.

    2. DH made me a bacon roll - nom nom nom

    3. Several non-Christmas parcels wrapped & ready to go. Must post tomorrow - persisting or not.

    4. Choc chip biscuits cooling on rack - smell loverlee.

    5. Chilli bubbling away - only another 90 minutes to wait!

    6. Watching the squirrels eating the leftover chestnuts - I had a disaster trying to roast them so rather than waste electricity gave them to the squirrels. Only saw two today but sometimes wi5h have five,

    See you all tomorrow.

    Sending positive vibes & (((hugs))) to any one who wants them

    Mrs SD:)

    Quite an irritating day here (in parts). Seems to have to keep explaining and justifying things to the wider family who (dare I say it) don't know what they are on about. :-/


    Pleasures for today:


    1) A lie in! Last one... alarm now set.


    2) Porridge for breakfast with banana with plenty for the hens.


    3) Tuna, tomato, avocado and cheese on toast, with apple slices and grapes (I think a vegetable and fruit excess is starting to make up for the last couple of weeks!)


    4) Popped to carpet town in the afternoon so bigger son could look for a new college bag and smaller son could look at football boots. No purchases made.


    5) One of sons' favourite easy teas - flaked cooked trout mixed with pasta, peas and mayonnaise.


    6) Watched Holby.


    7) In bed with 2hwb listening to the storm outside and about to listen to Mark Steel.

    DH made us go out and socialise which is good, and he needed to, but I felt too subdued to be to be bothered to be honest.

    1 Travelled, and DH and I cleared df’s bedroom and made several hard phone calls, a pleasure to get face it and get done.
    2 I went to the tip with a load of broken, worn out things and have another load tomorrow.
    3 I’ve been starving today, a massive leftover meal, and I’ve just made Jamie’s panettone pudding it looked nothing like his photos though, why am I not surprised.
    4 I told a future contract that I was not game for starting this month, they said no problem to my pleasant surprise, and want to meet with me this week to discuss future things.

    On and off awake, storm listening, occasional checking outside.

    Bop - thought of you with this World Service HARDtalk prog. -
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csvpvr/broadcasts.

    Frith - like Mark Steele lots, Portishead and Hull so far this week. Like the Portishead stationer's with 20 rooms, 1 pencil order "that'll be a delivery then", mud, wd40+witchetty grub and the Rupert Brooke pastiche.

    Thinking of you today, vjm and PK.
