    Please clarify...will Petula have to do something peculiar with her own trouser leg OR someone elses????? Mind boggling at prospects for things to go pear shaped if the latter!

    Oh thank you, wondered but didn't like to ask. Might save time spent trying various things with me trousers. Also might save injury when trying with other people's trousers. :rotfl:

    Are you in Nessieland SLC?

    Alas sadly not, always wanted to go as I am a serious Nessie fan, and yes I do believe though probably not in the most conventional idea. I'm also super into my Cryptozoology but that's a thing for another day. Never been because I'm allergic to midge's! I don't have a massive reaction but it makes me super tired and irritable and just plan dog ill so tends not to make the rest of a holiday good!

    I couldn't possibly say. As I explained, you never know who is reading this forum and if I spilled all our secrets mayhem could ensue. That is, more mayhem than we usually create.
    I foresee that if the world in general were privy to our secret practices we wouldn't know where we were. Imagine the chaos if every crowded town and city were full of folk doing our thing with the trouser leg. The High Streets would be a mass of writhing bodies, DOWN HESTER, the ticket collector would never be able to get from one end of the train to the other and the foreign tourists watching the changing of the guard would be sending some very interesting pictures home.

    No. Best to leave people wondering.
    I believe that friends are quiet angels
    Who lift us to our feet when our wings
    Have trouble remembering how to fly.

    I'm having my hair cut this afternoon; thank goodness, as I feel such a scruff atm. I always had greasy hair but now as I've grown older it's dry and flyaway and I don't really know how to deal with it. Conditioner helps, but I can't always bend over the bath for long enough to condition as well as wash. I have to be very careful what shampoo I use or I get dermatitis on my scalp. Ironically it's sebhorreic (sp) dermatitis, so I evidently have a greasy scalp and dry hair, which sounds mad (fits in just fine here then :D)[/QUOTE]

    I have dry hair but have given up on conditioner. Instead when my hair is dry after washing I put a very little blob of coconut oil on my hands and rub it in my hair. Gives a nice shine.

    Hester we're already halfway through our school hols up here, yer very late!
    And if the elephant is in the biscuit tin then I'd like to know what's in my freezer..
    Got 2 plumbers wandering around in my loft trying to understand our heating system. Still no hot water since Sunday but managing fine with kettles in the sink.

    And I now have an image of a little Scottish lady sitting in the sink to bathe

    The ticket collector often can't get from one end of the train to the other NOW, and HM Queenie must get a little jaded with the constant repetition of the changing of the guard, as for those from 'for'n parts' they have some extremely iffy practises of their own and probably wouldn't turn a hair even if the odd thing happened to the trousers they were wearing. How'm I doing Hester, I'll make it happen for you if I can convince Monna!!!
    You've always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself!

    Ours is not to wonder what is fair in life but finding what may be, make it up fair to our needs.

    ...Hope you weren't caught up in the Blackpool deluge earlier ...


    I was, and after a quick dash from work to my car I was wetter than standing in my shower at home right through to the skin :( And I got caught up in the traffic delays too. But at least I didn't need to water the allotment or wash my car :D

    Good to read Mar has hot water, despite the best efforts of the heffalump. Fingers crossed for the possible buyers Monna. And happy allotmenting Fuds :)

    Some news bulletins just in......

    The body of a heating engineer has been found halfway up a hill in Scotland. Presuming death was by asphyxiation, as his mouth and throat were stuffed with kale.

    Police are questioning a lady of mature years who was found on a barge in the Home Counties wearing a purple suede corset, wellies and a sou'wester.
    A spokesman has said that everyone knows that you should never wear a suede corset when it's raining.

    An epidemic of lunacy appears to have taken over the country, with people wandering around with one trouser leg rolled up and munching Rich Tea biscuits. Don't they know that chocolate digestives are the biscuit du jour?

    We certainly live in strange times.....
    One life - your life - live it!
