  1. I only had to look at them to know I wouldn't like them!
  2. What colour are they? Sometimes the colour fits the name. I always wanted a black and white 'tuxedo' male and an orange female, and call them Fred (Astaire) and Ginger (Rogers)
  3. My eldest son has just got over his isolation period. He and several firemen at his station contracted Covid from a visiting firemen who came to do a shift then tested positive after returning to his own station. He lost his sense of taste first, then smell and felt achy. Never once did he have a temperature. A lot of public places here take your temperature on entering, which now seems a waste of time. You don't have to have a temperature to have Covid.
  4. You're all a load of knit-wits.
  5. Now's the time with all these face masks!
  6. We were over in the UK a few Christmas's ago and went to Tesco after Christmas to get our food items to take home with us. Hubby looked in the cheese and there was a half wheel of Stilton on sale. I can't remember now how much but it was no more than 6 pounds. They changed our rules a few years back and we can now bring back cheese so long as it's vacuum sealed. Hubby thought it was his birthday and Christmas rolled into one, with that cheese.
  7. The only time we had drink in the house was Christmas. a bottle of port (for port and lemon which I was allowed a small one) and sherry. The rest of the year, nothing. Mam would go out a couple of nights a week for a beer or Guinness, dad was T.T. When I was old enough to drink, and out with my mates, we would have a barley wine. Horrible tasting stuff, and 1 would last all night, but we thought it sophisticated to drink it. But I didn't like beer or spirits either. A Babysham was a treat though. Wine was never an option, unless you went to Yates, which I never did. I still drink very little, we keep drink in, but neither of us bother to drink it till someone visits. When I worked behind the bar in the clubhouse at the bowling alley, I would pour spirits at arms length so I didn't have to smell them!
  8. Nonna I don't pay anything. Son pays a little over $100 per annum, recently went up from $99.
  9. I don't know if it is the same over there, but here, when you subscribe to Amazon Prime you can add a family member for free. Doesn't have to be someone at the same address. Our son added me so I get the free 2 day shipping and Prime TV.
  10. Well , she'll never fall on her nose.
  11. Get well soon Chris, both Chris's It appears it's a sneaky virus!
  12. I go on line to westbridgfordwire.com for Nottingham news. Much easier to navigate than the Post.
  13. A burglar? They're a bit shady, near houses. (Sorry, couldn't resist)
  14. My condolences to you and your family on your sad loss.
