  2. My day started with a labour of love and two hours chained to the cooker, fulfilling my gorgeous Granddaughters request of 'Can we have some Scotch Eggs, please Nannar'. So by the time I had finished cooking two each for all my nearest and dearest, I made a total of 14 in all! Mmmm. Probably take as long again to put the kitchen back to normal. What the rest of the day holds, I have no idea. Probably, full of 'Spot the difference....Sudoku ....Crosswords....Arrowwords....Wordsearch.....Jigsaws.....Oh my goodness....You would think I would be in Mensa' ? NOT.

  4. Thank you RR for that cheery comment about his age I liked watching Cannon and Ball many years ago and also seeing him more recently in ‘Not going out’ I suppose I’m still a child at heart, despite being well into my innings! ... and I hope I’ll never change into a boring cynical old person (Not alluding to anyone on here of course)

  5. Thanks for that, Beekay. Fortunately, I don't suffer from ingrowing toenails but if I did, you've just put me off seeking treatment. You see, the best way to deal with me is by tranquilizer dart, when I'm not aware that it's coming! I'm a 5 star, genuine, copper bottomed coward!

  6. An anecdote for yus Ben. About three years ago, I had to go to Newhaven clinic to have wedge re-sections on the three middle toes on my left foot. The ingrowers were on both sides of the toes, so it was a split down both sides. The worse thing was the two injections on each for !! the was sheer agony. Fortunately, it didn't last too long before the anesthetic took effect. Was able to walk out, wearing a cut out slipper. A friend took me down, but I was able to drive myself three days later, for a dressing change. About nine months later, whilst having a shower, all three nails fell off !! Noth

  8. My day which is just beginning. I usually have breakfast with NS but this morning I looked at FB and saw a photo that I thought to put on NS . It's the exact view that we have from the end of our road. I will try to post it with iPad but it doesn't always work out. In the meantime I'm having some toast with a salted caramel and hazelnuts spread. During this mini lockdown my daughter is making and selling jars of various things from sauces for pasta, chutneys, salted caramel, lemon curd and bagna cauda etc. If you have FB you may have seen them. She's brilliant she never follows any given

  9. I've just had a quick glance through that website and it's a spectacular treasure trove of information. It'll keep me occupied for a long time.

  10. I was never that bothered about them in the original days, and I've only slightly seen Not Going Out, but they also made a couple of guest appearances in Last of the Summer Wine where their contribution fitted in well.

  12. "Oh goodness gracious me." The above was what I was about to post for Jill when my power went off. Finally back on after three hours. Judging by the amount of deadfall in my back yard I'd guess a tree probably fell on a line somewhere. Sun is shining now but it was nasty while it lasted. Didn't get me fur trimmed I figured the power was probably off at the barbershop. Have to go tomorrow now.

  14. Sounds nasty, Ben. At least you've got something for the pain. Can't dance, so how about a song instead. Oh, doctor, I'm in trouble.... Peter Sellers. Whoops! I think that's been banned.

  15. Can't be much worse than here, Nonna. Seems like if somebody eats too many beans here they blow a power line down. Edited to add.....Now 8 am and the worst of it seems to have passed. It was a fast mover. Think I'm gonna go out and get me fur trimmed. Be ready for me birthday.

  18. Thinking of you Ben. Keep those nurses in line. Sitting here in a bloomin' 'urricane. Wind woke me up at 4.30 am. Dogs were fretting about it so I gorrup and made us a cup of tea in case the power went out. Now 7 am so we made breakfast. Fortunately the lights have stayed on thus far. Wind seems to have dropped a bit. We are hoping we just caught the edge of it.

  19. Bless you benj. Hope the nurses ease your agony. I'm having similar problems recently so I understand your suffering, even a bed sheet can cause pain. I wont ask what has to be done, just the thought is enough to make me run for the hills! Take care Miduck.

  21. Mary, If he treats all of his customers with such disrespect, he will one day get his comeuppance (I hope). It may come in a slow steady loss of customers, and he may not realise what is happening until it is too late. His own fault.

  24. Mary did Paul and his dad used to be on David lane basford.?. it sounds like the same set up, dad paper work and Paul mechanic. I ask because mum always took her car there as it was recommended by a friend and she was always pleased with them and nothing was too much trouble for them.

  26. Yesterday was a bit of a pain? I have lived in Jacksdale 10 years now (well someone has to) and since being here I have always taken my car to our local Gararge. unlless car was under warranty. Well as far i as know Paul and his dad owned the garage Paul machanic and his dad used to do the paper work. The customer service was excellent.

  28. Way back when I was an adolescent.. I was, as I am still.. mad about music. Thing is, due to terminal lack of funds and not even a decent radio in our house, I grabbed my music wherever I could. One such vehicle was a film called 'It's Trad Dad'. At the time, my pop sensibilities were added to by a love of 'Trad', as represented at the time by the likes of Acker Bilk, Chris Barber, Kenny Ball, Bob Wallis, Monty Sunshine, Mike Cotton, Ken Colyer, Humphrey Lyttleton and Co. This film.. like almost all of the genre, was total rubbish from the point of view of the plot...

  29. In the link I posted earlier today (which is the church's own website) it states that the current building was constructed between 1885-91, and before the construction there was an 'iron church' (whatever that was) on what is now the site of Tesco. I think the footpath in question was just a short cut between Main Street (as Carlton Hill was then known) and Newgate Street (which later became Church Street). Back then, that part of Carlton was full of alleys and cut-throughs.
