Re: The To Do List

Here's the sort of thing I do when I am like this. Fall over \/ Leave keys outside on the wall out the front, near the pavement, for days \/ (I really want to confess the latter, but husband will go ballistic if he finds out. Thank goodness I spotted them. I just went out the front to replace a dece...

Re: Just want to share.

I ordered a load of beers and cideres from the Dry Drinker company at the outset of lockdown. I don't often want to drink such things, but it's sometimes nice to have one after working outside in the hot sun for a few hours. No chance of that this week... It's true, shifting from 'one' to 'you' beco...

Re: The To Do List

Better that than an hour late :) I find the wind very unsettling. The children in the school were just doing some weird rhythmic drumming and whistle blowing for about half an hour. Also unsettling, although I am sure it was great fun for them. A bit worried my tomato plants will be blown over. They...

Re: The To Do List

Aw Luna. I don't think it's silly to be anxious after what happened before. People on social media can be such arseholes and can, to use a modern usage of the term, be very toxic. I used to be on A FB page for my local area but they were mostly such selfish, nasty and defensive (tolerated no disagre...

Re: The To Do List

It was very shocking. I couldn't stop trembling for a while after. And you can imagine the tremendous noise. The cats hid for good couple of hours after. We have taken things off the tops of the other cupboards. I guess we were a bit stupid/ignorant/naive about how much you could put in them. But ho...

Re: The To Do List

Oh dear full of anxieties this morming. I have been offered accomodation in a friend's holiday rental - will be the first in. One night next weekend. To visit mother. Was (sort of) overjoyed at this - safe way to visit her. But then I remembered, at about midnight in bed, that we still have a back d...

Re: The To Do List

It's hot. I am trying to fouc and write a story for work but a) have been offered a night's accommodation in friend's cottage so that we can visit mother and b) just got a survey from work about going back into the office. The productivity and focus I said I have working at home on the survey has ju...

Re: The To Do List

I was thinking, Danny, that of all the hard work I have put into the garden, the soft fruit has had the least devoted to it. Fertilizer in the spring, watering for the cherries and some sleeves to protect the fruit. I have made the loganberries and jostaberries into a small crumble. I do so need to ...

Re: The To Do List

We have a heatwave next week darn sarf, Jjjj. You'd be needed factor 100. 30 degrees at the end of the week. This is surprising, as I finally ordered some sunglasses, last week, which I had been umming and ahing about whether to allow myself, for weeks. (Sorry v bad sentence construction.) I wish we...

Re: Just want to share.

I do wonder about that photo, if it's the one I am thinking of. It took quite a while to trace it back to it's original source, which was Getty, and which has a caption from the 1970s on it which was clearly not written by a historian. It's hard to see how it could be misinterpreted but it happens f...

There are all sorts of speculations about the origins of 'on the lash' here, Jjj...!

Re: Just want to share.

I could never get my head round people sleeping on a rope, to the extent that I suspected it was an urban legend. Then I saw a photo. If they were drunk it might make more sense. However I suspect that's not the origin of 'hangover', I'm afraid, as the first documented useage of the term to refer to...

Re: The To Do List

Afternoon. Spent lot of morning faffing with tech stuff gone wrong. Annoying. Couldn't sleep last night at the prospect of all the stuff I have to do today (but couldn't get going with because of a fonts issue.) Anyway sorted now. We have a storm right almost over head. It's very very loud. Basil is...

Re: The To Do List

I think we are still not supposed to travel long distance or use public transport unless it's necessary. We aren't even allowed to stay over night yet here, but that will change next month. I guess if you have had Covid you don't have to worry too much about getting it, and you are probably not a ri...

Re: The To Do List

Well you can put it off for now, Danny as not yet allowed... My favourite raspnerry type seems to have died on my this year, but the loganberries have gone ballistic. Not a great tradeoff. They are very tart. I really should pick the cherries tomorrow (I have quite a lot, maybe even a pie's worth.) ...

Re: The To Do List

Thanks all.

Glad you had such a nice day, Danny.

I didn't sleep well at all last night so didn't get up till nine and only just got dressed. Might go out in the car somewhere, although probably had too much coffee for this to be safe.

I hope everyone has a good day.

Re: Captured Moments (Photography)

V sweet. am semi-convinced I have dunnocks. I see sparrow-like birds singing their hearts away, but can't get close enough to have a good look. They can't be sparrows can they? They don't sing. I did think the juvenile robin was one at first. He/she is very friendlt/unafraid. If I had a birthday com...
