It’s now official our village has been awarded “ one of the most beautiful villages in Italy”

I’m not at all surprised, having visited you a few years ago, albeit during a cold snowy February, it’s a wonderful place to live, well done to Castagnole delle Lanze.  We will return!

Never realised there was two 6 o-clocks in one day. :Shock:

It's 05.00 on Thursday ready to go to the Asda for 0.600, shopping done and the rest of the day is my own

We once went to Asda in Brighton for six am start so we could get an early breakfast. When we got there we found out that the café didn't open till 7.30. So that were a waste of bloody sleeping time.

You had a lay in then? I am normally up at 4 o'clock, I wish I wasn't.  

 

same here Trogg, after years of getting up early to go to work it's hard to break the habit, I don't mind though, like I said the whole day is my own to do what I want and for some reason I manage to keep busy for most of it

I tend to get up at first light then do my gym work before breakfast. So it was 7.15 today but 5 am in late spring. Some mornings during winter, like this morning, I do the gym work mid afternoon especially if there is sport or something interesting to watch on tv. 

In spite of all the controversy I am enjoying the World cup. I am not an expert on footy but like entertaining games - that's why I was pleased for S Korea who performed so well in their first match. Japan were surprisingly good too.

My day is finishing with the door bell ringing. Had to go down to the gate in the pouring rain and I was handed a single red rose. Card with it “to the most beautiful woman in the world , I love you like crazy” no name but it could only have come from husband. He’s coming out of hospital tomorrow. Beautiful surprise.

I went to see a film on Friday at Lakeside arts theatre (Highfields). It was about people living in St Anne's during 1969 pre demolition. People went to work full time and were struggling  to heat their homes and feed their family.

When you see todays news that people are struggling to heat their homes and are going to a food bank to survive you realise that things haven't changed that much in 53 years.

I keep trying to shrug it off, but it just keeps coming back and slapping me in the face??

 

AGE  !!!!   must admitt I am getting older. How do I know this?

 

The other day called in the chippy, this young feller next to me never took his eyes of his phone, thumb's going 19 to the dozen.  I said to the young man "What did we do before mobbies came out""  he replied "We used to talk" "Yes" " I said it's good to talk"" Then going into story mode i told him that when I first started work the big black phone rang!!  

Well shouted my manageress arn't you going to answer it?  at that time nobody had a telephone unless you were some one important. I did answer the phone but I was shaking all over.  Then  the man behind the counter "OH he said " I remember going to one of those red boxes and having to put in a 6d or1/- "  so me and my big mouth said "Well I remember going to a red box and putting 4 penny's in ""

The young fellow turned around and just said "WHATS PENNY'S"

Then the next shock!!!!

Here's your order  1 Fish 1 portion chips 2 fish bit's  £14 20  HOW MUCH ??

I think that I will find a dark room some where.

 

But it did not stop there!!!

The next day speaking to my brother on the phone who lives over in Germany. My brother was saying that it had been snowing all day, and it was very cold out side. In a bit of fun I just said!! well you had better get your Liberty Bodice on to keep you warm.

He replied "What's one of thoes "  Now he is only 4 years younger that me but if he can't remember about our Ben's Liberty bodice ? Well?

Then I know I'M Getting OLD

Mary 1947 I knew I was getting old when I sat outside a café watching the world go by with a coffee when I struggled to stand up. That was bad enough but a woman who was I thought elderly came across and helped me stand up. Then I knew I was OLD.
