How's your day?


Recommended Posts

For the past few days it’s been lovely and quiet near us because of a sink hole which appeared right in the middle of the village High Street on Friday morning!   The road has been closed off except for residents’ access, with barriers round the hole itself!   
It’s almost a metre diameter  and looks about a metre deep.  I suppose it I’ll have to be made bigger so someone can go inside and ascertain the cause of the collapse.  Word is that it’s something to do with a water leak but nothing’s been done yet.

Plenty to do here today. 7km row. Porridge. Collect eggs and feed chickens. Adrian Marr. 11am end of driveway. Dog walk along canal. Cleared even more leaves.

Tomorrow will be even busier. 10 ton skip arrives for me to fill with soil, roots and rocks prior to the Yew tree being felled. I'm levelling off the courtyard ready to pave another 20 m2. I have dreams about having a 'fountain in the courtyard' but it may well be one of those tiny solar thingies (£4.99 on Bangood) :biggrin:

They're very poor quality and don't last long PP. Why spoil the ship for a ha'porth of tar? do it properly you'll be glad you did.

A week of mischief for me, I hoped, the wife is staying with her sister for a week due to her sisters medical problem.

After numerous phone calls last night it appears all of my friends are not up to it , so I am looking around the house and garden trying to find things to do, I am not use to making decisions on what I am supposed to do in the house, so it looks like I will be in the garden all the time. I have a feeling she doesnt trust me as she accidently has my credit card with her.

 So it will be a week of gardening and walking whilst dreaming of pleasures I could of had. Hope it doesnt rain.

Are you organising a zoom meeting?  If you are, send me a link for it.  It’s free for 40 minutes I believe.   I don’t like my zoom face, but I don’t much like the one in the mirror either!

Rule number one Trogg........when wife/partner leaves you for awhile......insist on some CASH.....Just in case you feel like going down Town......perhaps having a Dance or two or just sitting in a  BAR  Looking good on a high stool....and tempting a nice lady to join you......GO ON TROGG GO FOR IT !!

           Just be careful climbing on the 'High stool' they can be dangerous when you have an ingrowing Toe nail and when Dancing keep it close and slow.....lol

I was hoping for ideas from Ben, I thought of a bar and dancing but they are all closed. Takeaway coffees dont hit the mark and drinking beer on a public bench isnt my idea of mischief, there must be a conspiracy against me. Its so long since she has trusted me on my own I have forgot what to do, other than go for a walk and see who I can talk to.

@philmayfield. My avatar on here was taken  2 - 3 years ago.   I stopped colouring my hair about a year ago so now I am a sort of whitish grey.  I actually like it like that, though, and wonder why I didn’t do it sooner!   However,  I keep thinking I would like some bright purple or blue streaks in it (I am NOT talking about a blue rinse btw :rotfl:)
But thank you for the compliment -  I remember you, too x

@benjamin1945  I used to like Babycham - mainly because of the cute little deer on its adverts (and beer mats!). But these days it would have to be fruit juice .... 

@mary1947  electric blue sounds good - you can do it for me when we next come to Nottingham!

Margie,

Not wishing to be pedantic, but I think you'll find the Babycham beast was a Chamois,  ( you know, where 'chummy leathers come from). Can you still get it , by the way?

This post is carring on from post 441 

Car passed its MOT 

On MOT was this 

Nearside front tyre has nail beded in outer shoulder 

Rear breaks discs pitted and starting to corroded

 

Now if you read my post on 441 you will see i was not happy with this garage, he did phone and tell us about the tyre, the tyre could not be repaired so the master said well if it can't be repaired put a new one on.  

Going back to MOT i had booked the car in to get the breaks seen to but after the way i was treated i booked it in at another garage.     Took it in Tues, 1 hour later the garage telephoned, can I just ask said Stan "why do you think your breaks need doing."?  So we told him, well said Stan "I can't find any thing wrong with them, they just want a good clean". 

I went to DLVA as it was on MOT  that the breaks were pitted and starting to corroded  If it's not correct on your MOT about your car they can remove wording. Staying that! the word next to problem said (advsories) so it could not be removed off MOT.

I think this is wrong first it was incorrect what had been written, and just say we wanted to sell car and who was buying it saw this comment and we had no proof that any of the work had been done, Would yu buy the car?

IT JUST GOE'S TO SHOW TRUST KNOW ONE
