    Good morning all, looks like we might have had a little rain overnight, but nowhere near enough.

    Today I am planning on removing the old wallpaper from the kitchen walls. We have to cover up a problem created by the previous people that lived here (we have lived here for 32 years ) that just is not feasible to correct without spending a fortune so there is a feature corner wall in the kitchen. It actually works quite well, it is away from the cooking area anyway, more in the prep area, and it breaks it up nicely.

    I also have walls and ceiling to wash, shelves to take down, window sills to clear, woodwork to sand, gosh that sounds like a lot of work for today and tomorrow
    What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare

    Had my Victoria always coupons rejected by A's yesterday. They can normally override them if the systen rejects them but this particular supervisor went to ask someone else about them and they said cant take them anymore Mind you I did have 2 of them. Maybe should try one at a time.

    Good morning all.

    Mrsmac, I would love to say it was sunny this morning here in Belfast but alas not. It is grey and dank, however that shouldn't dampen the good ole Norn Iron hospitality. I hope you enjoy your trip to our lovely city.

    Sadly I will not see much of the city today. I am hoping that if I can make this visit a success then I can incorporate it into my work schedule I can go over on a Friday every couple of months and stay until Sunday DH would be delighted to join me and would be happy enough on his own for a few hours while I work Well that's my plan. Sadly the main boss is not not by biggest fan but I will try and wow the manager today even through the flight has been delayed and the meeting times now on a very tight timeline

    If it works out we can a have wee meet up

    Good morning Elite

    Dull and rather cool here this morning, it rained last night but just not enough for the earth.

    I've allowed myself a lay in this morning as I went out last night to 'An Evening if Clairvoyance'. Quite a good night but after sitting for 2 hours my back and the bones in my bum ache this morning

    Hugs to the Elite poorly and those low in spirit, you're in my thoughts xx

    Susan, I've just read about Emily . How can the woman lie so blatantly, pity there wasn't cameras in the shop

    Don't beat yourself up over this, you did all you could do for Emily. She's now in a safe place in someone else's hands, so hope that goes well.

    No doubt you will be getting or have had a visit from the police over this, so naturally I'm worried about you. PM me or message if needed xx

    Happy Friday Llovelies

    We had an amazing day yesterday in Glandyfi Castle

    If anyone is thinking of a B&B stay on an estuary in mid Wales. This is the perfect place.
    Just around corner from Borth/Aberystwyth for Hinterland fans.
    The castle is set up on the hillside with outstanding views across the Dovey Estuary.
    The rooms are all exquisitely decorated with equally divine en suites.
