I woke up this morning …………………...

I am planning to do the same tomorrow and the day after...………..

 

Reminded me of something Jasper Carrot did years ago.  Started playing a blues riff and looked around the audience for approval of his 'coolness'.. after an extended into.. he sang..

"I woke up this morning.."

"woke up this afternoon too"..

 

I guess you had to be there.... :blink:

I put down a couple of slabs yesterday for my wheely bin to stand on

Why are you standing your wheely bin on a couple of cartons of beer?

Slab is Australian slang for a carton of 24 beers

Slabs here used to be 24 cans. Then they went to 20 cans. And then to 18.

 

But the price stayed the same.
 

And Jasper Carrott was brilliant live. TV never did him justice.

Beer cartons are growing here, slabs are still 24 cans but more are being sold as a box of beer with 30 cans.

Don't forget that the "goon bag" was a South Australian invention that took the world by storm.

Looks like the sparrowhawk has been visiting my garden again. A very large, dead crow under the grey alder this morning. Usual spot for sparrowhawk victims.  Very sad. I love crows. They are such intelligent creatures, unlike homo sapiens.

@ Jill, this is the time of year we see Red Tailed Hawks being dive bombed by crows near Rookeries, Mind, the crows are wasting their time, Hawks are magnificent fliers, and just pull a wing in a tad to move out the way.

Hawks raid crows nests for eggs and chicks, they also like chickens too, hence the American name for them, chicken hawks.

24 and 36 cartons of beer are known as "suitcases" in the US.

Saw a red kite yesterday. Most interesting, not seen one before

Saw it again today, a bit closer. But after a detailed look at the internet and discussion with a RSPB member I've concluded it's a buzzard.

Today is very warm. Got the men finishing the irrigation for when the grass is laid. Now we have a dilemma. We said we were going to plant the three lemon trees on one side along with the fig tree. On the other side of the path we only have 2 acers. Overnight, although we knew , we thought about when we renovated the house ( old farm house) the gas was laid on and other pipes etc water and drainage pipes. Sooooo we thought it was a bit stupid to start digging holes and find that a pipe has been damaged. The fig can go on the other side but then there is a water pipe that goes through to next door where they have the general stop tap. Why oh why did we start this work. :Shock:

On a better note the pool should be opened by the end of this week or beginning of next. We're sitting in the sun and getting a tan but it's too hot to sit for long and not being able to cool off.

At least it's taken our minds of CV.

I was very upset to hear the update in the U.K.,but it doesn't seem to stop people going around. Stay safe everyone.

Nice to have a pleasant surprise for a change.

 

I put some petrol in the car for the first time since longer than I can remember. £1.03 litre.

 

Pity there's nowhere to go with it at the moment.

£1.047 at Waitrose Newark - but a much better class of customer! Their diesel was £1.097 when I filled my wife's car a couple of days ago. Harrison's at Lowdham nearby have totally shut down as had M&S at Southwell this morning.

The chicken coop is almost finished. It has been built for my Gt granddaughter next door and turned out to be a bit of a folly. Painted the second coat of Hammerite today. Red roof, green frames and blue panels. Marked out the wavy edged barge boards today and will cut, fit and paint tomorrow.

This aint no normal coop - Beekay would love it. Pics will be up next week.

Yesterday watching the general news, it featured a sort film of a Banksey picture being unveiled for a hospital. The giornalist appeared to be Anne Davis but the view of her was so quick. The picture is quite poignant as it's a small boy discarding his toys and opting to have a nurses doll instead.

I don't know any of itv's journalists but Anne Davies used to come into our restaurant in R.O.T. So it was strange to see her on the news here but don't think it was a Nottingham hospital.

In the 80s and early 90s, Anne used to be on Central News (ITV) but is now on BBC Local News - and has been for several years. She still lives locally.

His discarded toys where “Superheroes” Spider-Man & Batman & replaced with a new action hero an NHS nurse wearing a face mask & cape & the only colour in the picture a Red Cross.

Banksy @ his best.

Southwell M & S are still open Phil. Wife was most upset when I told her it was closed but it was open this evening.
