I’ve just been out on the road to see Father Christmas in his sleigh go past.  It was smothered  with twinkling lights and there were Christmas songs playing.  There were elves following on foot, waving and calling out ‘Happy Christmas’. There were families standing on their doorsteps and lots of excited children.  It was beautiful but it’s made me cry.... sad and happy all mixed together.   I think it may be because we used to take our 3 children to see Santa touring round the streets near where we lived in Leicester..... or it may be because Christmas is so different this year.... or it may be because you never know when it will be the last time you see it ....

whatever reason, I just keep reaching for the tissues

HELP APPEAL FOR ANY ADMIN WHO'S ONBOARD 

Mary1947 has emailed me to contact one of you. She is unable to log on under her own name. She just gets a response saying " This name already taken/exists". She can only get on with "Ida" new member.

Can anyone help to restore her Mary1947 name. Thanking you in anticipation. Beekay.

We usually get a visit from the 'Santa's Sleigh with accompanying collectors..which comes from the Round Table of the nearby village of Rainford.  We always give something.. but I always find myself wondering if Rainford Round Table return the compliment to our village... Not very charitable of me to think that way.

Admins are very thin on the ground these days. It might be a long time before such a person appears.   However.........I wonder if the problem might be due to operator error.

If Mary1947 is getting an error message saying 'This name is already taken' that suggests that she is trying to Register as a new member rather than Log in.

I’ve just seen a man riding a penny farthing on the A617 in Kelham. There was a long queue of cars behind him no doubt cursing. On my way back from Newark I saw him again on the Fiskerton road about to overtake a cyclist. I would have loved to see the expression on the cyclist’s face as he rode past!

Makes me chuckle watching Mrs Red preforming her daily ritual of switching on her ever emerging collection of Christmas lights, Christmas is certainly not cancelled here.:Friends:

Thank you all  for your lovely message I appreciate them very much. Mum had a fall because as she now admits she wouldn't wait 5 minutes. Broken shoulder, wrist and hip she is at home and now doing as she is told. I have help from my daughter in law who has moved in with us for 6 weeks she is a nurse so mum will do as she says. Merry Christmas to you all.

All good here.

Even this cynical old fart is getting a bit misty eyed about the way that Covid has messed up Christmas for so many.. but I'm still not going to be an idiot.. with a vaccine so close.

 

Just a case of waiting our turns now...:mellow:

 

Really glad it's the shortest day tomorrow or thereabouts. (It's a bit more complicated than that.. but 'Hey')  So.. things get brighter very slowly from now. Generally speaking .. it will be light at 5:00 pm by first week in Feb... :yahoo:

According to the Omni calculator, we will get our vaccine somewhere between 20 - 31 January but who knows... that will depend on lots of factors.  At least the Pfizer vaccines are still being allowed into Dover from Belgium, according to the news this morning.

As I understand it, you have to be looking towards the horizon as soon after sunset. To my reckoning, you would have to be on the coast looking West to see any horizon. If I go outside and look that way then I'd just be looking at houses across the road. Any road, it's blowing a hooley and raining. :rolleyes:

Good start to the day, toast set off the smoke alarm and house smells of burnt toast, conservatory has sprung a leak and I have dropped and broken a mug.  At least my new guttering is working, no waterfall at the front of the house.
Going to put the bin out ready for tomorrow and then cuddle up with Kai (who is sulking a bit as we haven’t been for a walk today so treats are required) on the floor in front of the gas fire and read a book on my kindle as I have read all the books I got from the library. The ironing can wait until tomorrow!

Sussed the new format and can post again:biggrin: Raining again this morning but, as yesterday, I donned waterproof trousers and top and worked outside. Yesterday I started to dismantle our boundary 'post and panel' fence. Those 45 year old concrete posts and gravel boards are twice as heavy as modern ones. It will take a few more days to complete that. This morning I dismantled a scratter that was far too heavy to move. It was removed to make way for a second courtyard. Just having a rest before going out again. Bugger the rain!

Avatar is normal. Unread post - no response. If I click on Activity I can get on line and then click unread posts on the new line.  I don't log off. Can't see how to pm and no envelope for notification, although your notification popped up?

CT, I can see all on my 10" tablet albeit dark on dark, but on my 8" tablet there nothing above the search magnifying glass. It's as though the image is too large for the screen but cannot pinch it smaller.

Does this make sense?
