Only skim read it, far to long & monotonous, glad to see you’ve not stitched up the lads on the road, you never know they might have family, mortgages, final warnings etc to deal with 

 

Red, we know you don't like reading.. but it's a choice you have.  It may well be too long for your tastes but if you havent read it you really can't say whether it is monotonous or not.

 

As for 'the lads on the road'. I'm sure they can look out for themselves and I see no reason why being 'workers' makes them any less liable to 'stitching up', if they are in the wrong.  However.. in this case. the expression 'Lions led by Donkeys' comes to mind.

 

The lads were pleasant enough and a good laugh.. though as Brew points out above.. they should have been able to put a plate over the hole to avoid blocking my drive for days on end...  Maybe it was just easier for them to make my life difficult?

I don't really know myself Nonna.  This time, the method I used last time wouldn't work for me.

 

Basically though, I right clicked on your link.  Chose option. 'open in new tab', which took me to Postimage and gave me the option to share your pics.

 

Maybe you are missing a step.

My yesterday really. Sat and watched my granddaughter play cricket for Gedling in gorgeous sunshine. Gedling clawed back from a poor position with some really good bowling and drew with a much more experienced Ockbrook team. Great courage and determination, girls!

That's sad. When I was a child, my next door neighbour's granddaughter attended Ockbrook. Her parents lived in Uganda until they had to leave in a hurry. During school holidays, Rosemarie stayed with her grandma. She rarely saw her parents.

 

The granddaughter was a few years my senior but we had one ambition in common: to work on the biscuit counter in Woolworth!  Neither of us managed to achieve it! Sad :wacko:

Progress on my 'Hole in the Ground'.

Progress.
Two blokes just turned up in a huge wagon. They scooped up the contents of the hole.. filled it with some sort of aggregate, wackered it down to a depth measured with a measury thing, fitted a 'chamber' and lid over the stop cock, reduced the number of barriers from 5 to 4, brushed up a bit and left.

I'm now wondering whether the re-surfacing will be done by a single crew.. or whether it will involve one visit to deliver tarmac, one to put it in the hole, one to level/finish it and a final one to pour a bit of tar sealer around the join.... :laugh:
And my drive is still 50% blocked.

Sorry to hear about the school closing down. My ancestors came from Ockbrook and perhaps attended. This was a ladies team though. Although my granddaughter is only just coming up to 14, they play in the Women’s League.

Two more blokes just turned up and seemingly finished repairing the hole which was blocking access to my drive.  However, they have left their barriers and signs in place, so access to my drive is STILL blocked ..for the sixth successive day.

I have fired off a second message to UU 'Feedback', despite not yet having a response from the first one.  If their barriers etc..are not gone by the end of today I will be calling them in full on Meldrew Mode to inform them that they can collect their hardware from the field at the bottom of the street.

Hooray!!!  Chap just turned up and collected signs and barrierws.  We can now use our own drive after 6 days.  And UU have still not responded to my complaints.  All of the workmen involved have agreed that UU are completely out of order in not bothering to warn me or communicate in any way.  I daresay they'd be communicating quickly enough if I missed a bill payment.

Maybe they're having a meeting Col., to see how much compensation to send you.:rolleyes:

Had a lovely day in the Garden........which is looking good...

Large lawn trimmed.......i didnt do it..only got a flymo so local man with petrol mower sorts it when needed..........

I can't dig anymore...so all my plants are in Pots...of which i now have nearly a hundred.......love moving em about...for different effect...looks like another garden when ive finished..

           Syd and Babs always inspect when ive finished...and usually give approval by giving each Pot the once over...before having a good roll on the Lawn..(they are Cats btw)

 

Not quite the country garden pictured here......but it'll do for me....

How are Syd and Babs doing Ben? I trust they are settling down now. My Dad's name was Syd, God rest him.

Has anyone heard from Loppy?  He hasn't logged in since 10 May and there's been no reply to a recent PM. Not that I can see replies but they trigger an email in my junk mail.  I hope there's nothing wrong.

There have been occasions where I've realised that a particular person hadn't posted here for a while, and I wondered if they are still ok.... or if they've just decided to have a break.......or they just couldn't find anything interesting to comment on.

 

And then a few weeks later, they magically reappear and tell us that they've been busy recently, or just didn't get round to posting on NS.

 

Although it's certainly true that the number of frequent, regular posters is less than it used to be.

I do try to do my bit CT. But sometimes wonder if folks get fed up. For me, this the best thing since sliced bread.

What I found though, is although I correspond withloads of people, I could pass them in the street and never know.

I know Loppy was having difficulties posting after the downgrade but he was still a regular visitor to the site. PMs are always answered quickly which is why I'm perturbed. It may be that he's taking a break but somehow I'm still worried.
