As threads are going walkabout I thought I would start the next stage of this off - I will try and do the links later!
Must use my stash up!

    Ok, so back on track..I worried about the unfortunate incident of the 'Elephant in the Freezer'.....:cool:

    Did he out grow the Room or had the monkeys invaded? :eek:

    IMHO, Even more reason for a sturdy/reinforced Garden Fence :)

    The elephant is currently foraging in the biscuit tin, on his holidays but is reported to be very well and enjoying it very much!!! The monkeys haven't worked out yet how to get in there with him, which is a very good thing as the world would rapidly run out of rich tea biscuits if they did!!!

    I have it on good authority that the elephant has put on weight due to over consumption of rich teas and d igestives. Consequently it has burst the seams of the biscuit tin and is now on the loose and looking for a fresh supply of food.

    I am keeping my cake tin in a reinforced, booby-trapped safe.

    The monkeys are still clearing up the biscuit crumbs.

    Good morning Fencers 2nd edition . Please tell me this doesn't mean we have to repaint our bit of the fence . No energy , no spoons and singing the rain song croaky but with intent . If you have rain NM ,FPK or anyone blow it to the west coast please .
    Welcome to Simplelivingcottage and any friends I've missed .
    If I was to say I last really absorbed any posts at the end of May you may understand how I am pretty unaware of most peoples news .

    I can't comment on much but see FPK is now merrily settled in her new home . Enjoy !
    NM I've just read the first week or so in June and am so happy to read your news then from the Christie - long may it be so .
    I also noticed the news about the heating so that deserves a wonky happy dance , when I said I was sending the vibes for a solution I really was . xx

    I should stand a chance of keeping up now ( there I've jinxed it now !!! )
    Take care all
    polly :)
