How's your day?

Recommended Posts

While the weather’s been beautiful the washing machine has been on overtime and today is no exception,  I’m washing things I didn’t even remember we had and at the same time I’m chucking stuff out, already been to the charity shop and now filling the bin.  Must mention one important point ....... we’re having a water meter fitted on Wednesday, may as well make use of the water before we get metered!

With the rainfall being almost nil in the last month, the water level in my stream and pond has decreased considerably, showing beautiful green moss on my waterfall. On returning home from a trip out this morning, it's been removed by magpies and blackbirds in their quest for insects. I'm certain it's not for nest building at this late stage in spring. 

I don't mind, but it's a hands and knees job now, picking all the bits of discarded moss from the stream, as it tends to grow amongst the pebbles and clog things up. Mmmmm, a job for Mrs Fly !

Streams, ponds, waterfalls ...all penalties of living in a country mansion - you'll be complaining about the water level in the moat next!  ;)

Are you still allowed to have the staff flogged, I always liked to say "I give you your freedom" when we had staff but that wasn't very often

Life is good. Put another 9 hour shift into rebuilding my grandson's garden. Now has 8 veggie plots and a patio. Only spuds and broad beans planted so far. Completed my 7 y/o great granddaughters plot today and tomorrow we will plant a few chitted spuds and some shallots. I will also erect an archway for her to grow sweet peas over. The archway will face the proposed play house. Knackered at 6.15 and poured a splendid litre of 6 y/o vintage cider - whoooo. Yes, life is good :biggrin:

Will there be some teenage puddy cats to dig them up again? :rolleyes:

Really resonate with that! Just moved into maisonette with fairly large, blank canvas garden. Can’t wait to get stuck in. Already got stuck into the cider!

Just watched Question Time from Nottingham.

 

Irrespective of the views on any side..I don't think it portrayed our city in a good light.

Last time I had an ingrowing toenail I performed the surgery on myself. Quite a lot of blood was spilt but the problem was cured. I doubt I have the flexibility to do a diy job now as I’m no longer able to assume the lotus position. At one time, as a party trick, I could put a leg round the back of my neck. I broke wind the last time I tried that though -  much to the amusement of the dinner party guests!

I have suffered with ingrowers a few years now,,,i also performed my own Surgery Phil when i first had them,,,bleddy awful made them a lot worse,,and since then have used a Lady Chiropodist every few weeks,,,

                                 I can still assume the Lotus position.......but with my shaky' hand think i'd still make a mess of my Toes,,,,

My right hip actually Rog! I was sent for an x-ray and after 8 weeks the surgery confirmed I had arthritis. I could have told them that! They suggested physio initially and the physiotherapist ‘phoned me and then emailed me a list of excercises. That was three months ago and I’ve heard nothing more so far. I suppose the ball’s in my court to go on the 19 week waiting list for a ‘transplant’.

I have same problem in the same hip, Phil.  It was starting a bit before the stroke.  Now it's worse.  Nobody seems to know what to blame.  Could be physio exercises in the right leg. Could be an effect of the stroke.  Could be an effect of the BP meds.  I'm just trying to ignore it.

Really I was thinking the Nottingham audience was brilliant, a representation of the whole UK, people are angry & annoyed, well done Nottingham we are proud of you.

Most of us are angry and annoyed about the Brexit situation and the country is divided as much as Parliament. Without getting into  politics I think that the referendum should be rerun and decided on a decisive majority, say two thirds. With the way that the referendum was set up last time the vote could have gone either way, theoretically on just one vote.

Recently had a great holiday, outside the UK, outside the EU, an excellent exit from BREXIT! The discussions on BBC Question Time are quite entertaining. Last night it was from Nottingham. Most of my attention was focused on where it was being filmed! Was that the Albert Hall? It it was it is not as I remember it from the days of school prize giving events. I looked online and could not find an answer. I am sure that members of this forum will be able to tell me!

I'm coming round to the idea of a rerun and it seems to me to the biggest objectors to one are the leavers. They have a point, we had a referendum and they won but it's now clear that the outcome and all the ramifications were not known.

There has been sharp practice on both sides, lies and laws broken.

It's a bloody disgrace that we are in this situation.
