Did you get carried away in you new motor?
The only place I want to be carried away to is zonksville. He was snoring last night, despite wearing a breathe right. I think he'd positioned it in the wrong place, where it did zero good.

Whoopee doo, more low temps and rain this week.

Well, while you've all been chatting, I've been out and bought a car ... it was just what I wanted. A full MOT and a recent service, 4 new tyres and everything appears to be in good order, is in excellent condition and the car comes with a warranty and it's a very reasonable price. The garage owner/proprietor is someone I've heard of in the SuperStox world and who knows folk that I know , isn't far from my Outlaws, and he has a reputation to protect. Son will take me to collect it next Saturday, after I've dropped the old car off with him to valet and sell for me. B)

Oh, and the sun shone nearly all the way and Norfolk and South Lincs looked glorious

Definitely Suffs.

It's been emptying down all night. I'm just waiting for 5.30 so I can go for my swim. I'm wondering if the showers and changing rooms will be fully open this time round.

See you all later. Polo has gone back to bed. She hates the rain.

Good Morning Campers, I have to go to Limassol this morning. Deb has an eye appointment, it is not safe for her to drive after having eye drops instilled. The clinic is about 150 metres from Georges Material Shop, it has been decided that we both need new cotton summer frocks and tops. That is this morning occupied.

Good morning all :D :mug:
It’s damp and overcast here in Norfolk ... the weather app calls it ‘haze’.
Today’s main tasks are taxing and insuring the new car ‘George’ ... the number plate is UKE ... get it? :lol:

Good Morning campers. It's not raining yet, but it's for cast. :roll: veg plants are all transferred from trays into the ground in the greenhouse, they look quite perky this morning :thumbsup I have a washing mountain to tackle this morning, so the drier will be getting a bashing if it rains or should I say when it rains. I just read in the newspaper we have two weeks of heavy rain, floods, 60mph winds and snow :o be aware !

good morning, all.
overcast with a bit of mizzle and breeze.

you'll have to make sure you keep the screen-wash topped up, suffs...

blood donors this afternoon, other than that not much on.
i had a welly related accident yesterday. i am blaming dunlop. my usual ones - super comfy and a few years old have succumbed to the usual ageing and splitting round the ankles and instep. (paddling through sea water doesn't help.) a friend passed on her wellies, that she doesn't wear and theoretically the same size as mine. they aren't. they are a bit bigger and heavier so while distracted by taking something out of my back pocket i tripped on one of the steps and was less than accomplished at both recovering my balance and bouncing.
it's as good a reason as any to get a pair of my normal brand of wellies. hopefully ebay will come up trumps again.
have a good day, everyone.

Thanks. I was thinking a bracket. I can't envisage how that one would work but maybe need to see it. Nieghbour had a couple of different styles which didn't quite work. Ancient posts... He's also worried about drilling into them as they have a lot of aggregate in them. But he seems to have definite ideas about what to do so will basically do what he says :)

Morning all from a dull Harefield :wave: :wave: :wave:

I didn't realise I hadn't been on here for a couple of days .. yesterday seemed to go in a flash but I don't really know what I did apart from listen to the Archers omnibus and GQT and do about an hour in the garden :? :roll:

I have got my first 'live' Zumba class this morning at 11 am :bounce: :limbobanana The hall is opposite a local GC, where, in the past some of the members would go for breakfast after class, but the café seems to have been closed down :(

I think I will be spending the rest of the day recovering ;)

Morning. Dull and damp here with rain forecast. I should do more gardening - I have today off. I have a load of sweet peas left over from the official planting. I am surprised they are alive after all this time, but they actually look reasonably healthy. I thought I might as well try putting them in against the fence in the new border. It's only semi shade though. Worth doing? I don't really fancy doing anything in the garden right now, but the rest of the week looks pretty rainy and times of the day when I can feasibly do anything, and Wales bound on Friday.

Congratulations on the car Suffs.

Last night on BBC Four seemed to be music night. I watched quite a bit of it, including the Delia Derbyshire Arena programme. It was very good. Old-fashioned, high quality, highly imaginative BBC stuff that we don't seem to get anymore. A combination of drama, radio interviews and general weirdness.

Right I am going to have at least two coffees before I contemplate doing things. I could do some housework or do a winter/spring clothing swap. I really can't wait to spring clean the sitting room, but am going to wait until the jungle has gone outside.

Congratulations Suffs! Here's to many hours of happy motoring. :thumbsup

Mixture of sun and cloud here though light rain due later. I'm off to town to get some bits done whilst the going is good. Have a lovely day all :wave:

Morning from a cool, wet Wales.
Th rat man is coming this morning, so I have been out in the rain checking the garden.

Great name there Suffs. The car was definitely waiting for a certain little lady to come by!!!

And in other news, our bistro patio table/chairs will be delivered today. I cannot see us using them for a few weeks, somehow!

Morning all! Watery sun trying to make its presence felt ... but reasonably mild and not windy.

Herbi, how long are you in Wales for? And how far are you going - all the way to N Wales? I bet you're looking forward to it :thumbsup

PP, hope you had a good swim :D

Had another megacall with DS2 late last night ... really feel for him and am so, so glad I'm not 20 something and all the emotional traumas of breakups are in the dim and distant past ... I really wouldn't go through any of that part of my life again for all the tea in China!! Nothing we can do except be there, ready to listen.

Quiet day today and dentist tomorrow morning - oh joy!!

See you all later :thumbsup
