Chatterbox LXXXI - Rodney

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Morning everyone,

It promises to be a very pleasant day weather wise. No decorating today, my arms need a day off so I think my mum is coming over and we'll go to Tesco to return some clothing items and I need to pick up some salad stuff and potatoes. Ooh, Jersey Royals! I would also like to pick up a couple of mint plants for my kitchen windowsill. We might have to do a detour to B&M for those.

Enjoy your day folks!

I am thinking about a window ledge herb garden. I thought maybe mint, parsley basil and chives to start with, I have rosemary and thyme in the garden. The only thing I find is basil tend to flop a bit, maybe I will put it all outside :?:

Back from the big supermarket, mangoes are on special offer so I will be chutney making tomorrow, this afternoon will taken up with the I word. Apricots and cherries were both expensive and imported so those can wait until next week.

I cannot remember who it was but a Wildie has a Mother or MIL who plays the ukulele. There is now an Episcopi Ukulele Band, they are performing on the same bill as a couple of local choirs at the Pissouri Amphitheatre at the end of the month

Apparently while in my day we all learned the recorder at school to teach us to read music, now it's the ukelele in many local schools. Sounds more fun to me!

Here is Lucy before and after her makeover. She has become my shadow, following me everywhere I go ;) I have started taking her out for a walk, but doing the same one at the moment so she gets to know where she is going. She is calming down a bit on the lead and when we get to the park I put her on the extending lead so she can run around a bit (usually in circles, then doubling back behind me ! :lol: ) She does sit on command indoors, but on our walk, her mind is all over the place and she doesn't even hear her name. Small steps though

Good morning everyone,
Lucy is just gorgeous :luv: :luv:

It's sort of sunny and sort of cloudy here with a bit of drizzle forecast for this afternoon. I'm not sure how much I'll get done today as had a rubbish night though I'm less wonky this morning. My deck is covered in bedding plants hardening off, next door's cat has had a thorough inspection of each container :lol: I must remember to bring them all in later!

Lucy is gorgeous :luv:

Patsy, we have exactly the same problem with moo. We have spent literally thousands of pounds and hours training her. We took her to puppy training classes, then paid for three behaviourists on a one to one basis. The third one never came back :terrified: :lol: :lol: :lol:

She is perfectly well behaved in our company but take her out and she is so hyper she loses all focus and as you say any stimulus is too distracting for her.

We have had her since she was about six / seven weeks and she will now be eight in October. Training her every day for all this time and we haven't got past the basics. :oops:

I don't expect she will improve much but at least she is not aggressive in any way shape or form just the opposite. :)

I think that just about sums up Lucy perfectly. At least she is quite small and can be controlled on the lead to some extent. ;)

Afternoon everyone :wave
Brief interlude in hostessing. S-i-l and OH arrived looking like drowned rats yesterday having driven through snow and torrential rain. It took us ages to dry them and the car out.

Thank goodness the weather is better today so we took them, in our car, to a local winery and then on to our favourite crystalised fruit place where the owner gave them a guided tour and tasting. then on to a favourite restaurant where we had a lovely simple lunch. They couldn't believe the reasonable price for the quality- this particular place has a 3 course weekday lunch for under €20.00.

Patsy, Lucy looks a real sweetie - so cute. I bet you are wrapped around her paw already!

Others may not agree, but I wouldn’t use an extendable lead, it’s more difficult to control. Try her on her normal lead when at the park, she might be better on it.

Back with some salad ingredients courtesy of my mum, including red little gem lettuce. Reduced to clear, 50p for two. Never seen red ones on sale anywhere before. They were still cheaper than regular little gems and won't last long! I also popped in to see my jolly greengrocer about mint plants. He doesn't usually sell them, although he does sell tomato plants, sweet peas and other bedding plants and hanging baskets. He'll add mint to the list of things he will discuss when he speaks to his supplier tomorrow. :grin:

I agree ... apart from the fact that you have very little control on an extended lead, many dogs feel reassured by the sense of contact with their human that a normal lead gives ... if she's elderly and a bit anxious she may well prefer it. :)

Lucy looks lovely! :D
It's been a hot sunny day today, I walked along the River Lea Navigation to the Olympic Park, round the Park, and into Westfield shopping city. Did some shopping, got what I wanted, well, Iv had to order my new sun hat but had a nice sensible assistant so we are pretty sure of the size
I didn't expect it to be such a scorcher so I started out with a flannel shirt over my sleeveless top, soon took it off so hope ny shoulders haven't caught the sun, iq only sun screened my face
The sunken garden in the Olympic Park is really nice now, and Miss Youmg's primary class were making full use of it, spotting insects and flowers
Walked 8 km to get there

A quick :wave:.

Does this mean you're on an isolated Continent aero?

Lucy looks very smart Pat. It will be good to be able to have a good chat with the vet as everything else seems to be going quite well.

Gosh Suffs, I have never seen such planning for a trip! :lol:

Long day on a first aid refresher course the other side of Slough. More tomorrow but I thought it was Thursday as well and it's not which was happy news. I wrestled with the blasted sat nav again this morning until as usual it almost reduced me to tears. Then as I drove along I hit on an idea, stopped off at Sainsburys in Reading at 7am and bought some Blu Tack and secured it in the perfect location - and it worked! No more falling off the windscreen and changing the location in the middle of the motorway - hurrah!

I do appear to be isolated on the continent. The fog is denser now. We can just see across the hotel car park! Hope it’s clear by the morning we have 450 miles to drive! :o

I use a short (normal) lead when we are roadside so I can control her, but I put the extending lead on her at the park so she can move round a bit more and get used to grass too - at which point I am wearing the normal lead round my neck ;) :lol: :rolleyes:

At the moment I am concentrating on Lucy getting used to her local surroundings. I think it may be too late to expect her to take on board formal lead training though (this was the advice from the lady who did her makeover)

Morning all!
Good to hear of little nature spots in urban environments. There are so many if one looks for them.

Up bright and early to avoid the motorway snarl ups. The course is in a heavenly spot very close to Heathrow and the M4 but feels as rural as somewhere like the Cotswolds with a couple of unspoilt villages, grassy meadows and sheep. A delight in the sun. If you didn't know, you'd never guess where it was!

Overcast and quite breezy here today. I did plan to walk to the Downs today but not if it's threatening rain I'm not, so I really have no excuse to put off giving the floors a good scrub. No matter how much I sweep and pick bits of sticky wallpaper up they keep reappearing. Can't wait for carpets where I can just whip the hoover round!

Have fun all!

Morning everyone :wave:
I forgot to say yesterday how cute Lucy is Pat. That little dog has reallt landed on her feet.

We were up early seeing the s-i-l off in a now more or less dry Nash and at least in dry clothes. Of course the sun is shining but I suspect the Mistral will blow uo during the morning in the Rhone Valley which is where they are heading. It seems a bit pointless to us to go rallying around vineyards when you are in a car which is not big enought to carry any wine!

Anyway towels and bedding nearly ready to go outside to dry.

Your walk sounds lovely Sue, I always love to see a class of children out in the openair doing fun things, learning so much but nor even realise theey are doing so.

Good afternoon everyone,
Both the sunshine and my oomph have returned today so I've been busy gardening all morning. I had a right :x :x :x moment earlier as I managed to drop a large tray of busy lizzies all over my deck. What a mess! All swept up now and thankfully the plants seem mainly ok. :)
I'm for my feet up with my book and a :mug: for a couple of hours and then it's back to potting on tomatoes.
Quick veggie pasta for dinner tonight.

TBH I'm not sure that there is enough to see to merit a special trip unless there is an event or a stadium tour as well. Or, if as I did, you want to visit Westfield Shopping City as well. And I had the river walk I am of course always available for lunch in the vicinity. There's some fairly major building work happening near the stadium, not sure what they are doing and if there will be more to see when it is done

River walk (yes this is the East End of London, Millfields, Hackney)

Visions of a car weighed down with luggage from top to toe Suffs! Hope you have a good trip and lovely holiday.

Lovely pix Sue, as tranquil as my Heathrow meadow earlier :lol: .

First aid refresher done .. and much needed. The last course was 3 years ago and I have never been called to do anything until a few weeks ago :o. I was terrified! Now for a nice sleep. I must get some exercise tomorrow.

Busy Day for us ! Stopped at a local joinery to look at wood for the garage doors. Then to Tesco to fill my car with fuel, use vouchers and a quick look at the clothes as I had a £4 off voucher - bought this https://www.tesco.com/direct/ff-floral- ... 2-6062.prd have yet to try it on.

We then had a 2.5 hour meeting with our land developer and the housing chap. Hugh sigh !!!! This just goes on and on. Seems that the problem is the local borough council !

We got home to find the chippies had done quite a lot of waney edged larch - it is gorgeous ! We are very happy with it.

Only downside today was my driving into the sharp corner of a kerb and resulting of needing a new tyre :x

Tomorrow I need to visit a plumbing shop and choose shower stuff.

OMG my last woof was a Yorkie named Lucy! She was a rescue and not a young dog when we took her in, but she had four happy years with us. She thought she was a Pit Bull :luv:

One of my cats thinks he's a race horse ! 100mph around the garden, up the stairs - any excuse !

Good Morning Wild Ones, a bag of lemons is never a problem, they have so many uses. However I seem to have caught the bottom of the preserving pan when making mango chutney yesterday, the chutney is a bit dark :rolleyes:

Morning,

The change in weather from chilly last night with all the windows closed to very warm this morning woke me up gasping for air and very over dressed. A walk will happen today, probably early afternoon, and definitely after I've had another go at getting a strange mark off my otherwise lovely and clean kitchen floor. Do I know how to enjoy myself or what?

Have fun all!
