Chatterbox LXXXI - Rodney

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

Morning all :wave:. Another nice looking day out there. Managing to keep up the regime of getting up and going to bed early which gives one so much more daylight. When I retire I might try to adopt that pattern.

Funny how cats do that tearing round the house thing.

Hope your caramelized chutney is delicious Moira :).

As I hadn't expected to have today off I'll be donning my walking boots shortly and going off somewhere nice to walk. Chores will be done tomorrow as originally planned.

Good morning
We have sun here too :)
I have a few things to do then I'll walk through the wetlands on my way to backgammon.
Didn't sleep well so quite tempted just to sit in the sun.
Have a good day

Good morning everyone,
Nice and sunny here this morning so more potting on will be done, then I fancy just sitting and enjoying the sunshine for a bit.
I'm out early evening so it will be something quick for dinner when I get back.

I drive past a vehicle respraying and body shop on my way down the hill. I am used to seeing commercial vehicles such as refuse trucks there, I have even seen a fire tender but I was surprised to see an open topped red London double decker bus. I suspect that it is to be used in the Paphos tourist trade.

Morning everyone :wave:
Just back from town which is chaos because this weekend is pentecote (Whit) and there is always a travelling fair and noisy processing - le Corso,. Nowhere to park and the place full of tourists and travellers.

I did manage to get a box of 2kg+ of strawberries for €3.00 so guess what I'll be making tomorow.I also found a very pretty galvanised inddor wateringcan decorated with painted lavender very folksy and it will look pretty in the veranda.

Our hairdresser is coming this afternoon to smarten us up for our London trip.

The good news is that our friend, who got off worse in the encounter with the wild boar, is out of hospital and is in rehab at a gorgeous clinic on Cote d'Azure so we are all queueing up to visit!

Well I have done town and market. Been to City Plumbing and have a quote for shower, shower tray and decided to go with specialist panels for the walls and not tiles. Replaced tyre has been balanced :rolleyes:. My special builders merchant fiend has been and we have decided on stable door and relevant door furniture. Just in time, she is leaving on the 4th June to become a post lady.

Now I need to construct some stuffed butternut and aubergine shoes for supper !

Evening all,

My feet are now well and truly up for the evening. A leisurely day really. Lunch with my mum, did all the crosswords in the cafe newspapers, had a gorgeous cheese and mushroom omelette and a cortado, spoke to my greengrocer who kindly sourced a mint plant for me. Three healthy looking specimens, three different varieties, £2.50. I'll split it into two pots for my kitchen tomorrow after my fortnightly job centre delight. :rolleyes: My dad has also tasked me with helping him categorise his huge collection of recipes into one book. I have someone on Gumtree interested in buying my Nutribullet. That's a few bob i could do with right now.

This little lot plus FA cup final and more decorating should keep me busy until Monday.

Zosh - I am jealous! I've always wanted a stable door! Aren't they just adorable? :luv:

Well, we've had a bit of a shock today. Our old uni friend rang earlier today to say he can't come down because he has been diagnosed with a heart murmur and needs a pace-maker. He is a veteran swimmer of national standard and apparently this is a fequent problem ??

We hope he will be fitted up and ready to go soon but, in the mean time we had arranged for another ex -uni firends to come in June and we would share looking after them. So now it's up to us - and only 3 days after we get back from London :scared: :scared:

Wrap head around this and spring into action tomorrow.

Looks like mixed news here today! The strawberries sound lovely and I've green with envy at the new shower. Once my PPI is all sorted I'm hoping there'll be enough left for me to turn my bath area into a walk in shower.

Had a fab walk on the downs today. One of those gorgeous early summer days with birds singing and insects buzzing and all the cares of the world far away. A real treat.

Good Morning Wild Ones, we are promised 30 C today :o
I had a general e mail from a local group about their Christmas Party :o , of course it is proper planning but it was a surprise. There was supposed to be a menu attached but some how it did not get through, it will probably be resent.

Morning all,

A bit of a chilly start but I can see the sun is likely to break through at some stage. A trip into town today on the bus. I'm going to get there nice and early for my JC appointment and take a small picnic with me save having to buy extortionately priced nibbles whilst there. There's a beautiful church in Luton town centre that will probably have a bench in the grounds. Might be able to take some pretty photos.

Have fun everyone!

Good morning everyone,
Overcast but warm here this morning so I'm hoping the sun manages to break through.
Yesterday ended up being a very lazy day mainly spent enjoying my book in the sunshine so not much gardening done! I must get some more potting on done today. My bedding plants are nearly all ready to get planted out now, I just need to decide what is going where and get the pots & wall baskets filled with compost. A bigger job than it sounds so it will take a few days but it will be worth it :) .

Good morning
The sun has got his hat on, hip hip hip hooray, so I'm off to collect my new one
My ophthalmologist insists I wear hats to shade my eyes, and I would anyway, more comfortable
This means I need a hat that's more or less "all weather" so I'm investing in a Tilley hat. I'll try not to feed it to an elephant like they did in the ads!
Have a good day

8 pots of strawberry jam made and ready for labels.
Another load of bed linen from next door hanging out to dry and a great stack of towels to fold and put away

I ordered a raincoat for the London trip. The lying toads, ie the courier company. sent me an
an email this morning saying they have tried to deliver it two days running but no-one wa in. Now they can't deliver it until next week and of course Monday is a holiday :x

I always thought you were being derogatory about the couriers in France but we saw a chronopost van today.

Les halles was /were a little disappointing. Only two fruit and veg stalls (nothing to write home about), a few meat, fish and cheese stalls, one selling crystallized fruit and a couple of bakery ones far less appetizing than the little artisanal one just up the allé. Half of it was cafe outlets - mostly closed, so we left, did our shopping elsewhere and came back through the rather lovely plant market and art exhibition.

Afternoon Wildies :wave:

Had some unwelcome news- our house buyers have pulled out (one of the couple has been made redundant). Can't be helped but I fear we'll lose the house we were after. Ah well- back to the drawing board.... :(

At least we're off for a weeks holiday from tomorrow (Lake District) so we have something to take our minds off it. Weather is looking good so hopefully we'll get some good walking in. :D

That's very unwelcome news Sea. I often wonder why the UK system is so fragile with no signing of a promise to buy with a none-refundable deposit. Makes one think twice before making a firm offer.
Enjoy your holiday anyway. DD says it's lovely in Cumbria and set fair it would seem.

Thanks, I know the allé Paul riquet one but the others may be interesting.
A couple of the squares are in the process of being remodelled/ resurfaced at the moment so some markets may not be available on this visit but hopefully by the next trip over.

Late again !!!! :rolleyes: But I have been busy.... Saw Mr. Z. off the premises at 8.15 and then drove to Longstock nurseries and collected a lovely 2+ metre laburnum tree. It is now dug in and watered, it is to celebrate our 36th Wedd. anniversary next month. Looks lush !

Rats, your list of markets leaves me salivating - we both love markets.

Sea, that's rotten luck, there will be another buyer along and I am sure that wherever you end up will be wonderful !

Phew, it is hot here, even for us, it is probably about 32 C @ 16 30 :o It would probably help if I had remembered to open the sliding doors to let the breeze in.
Salad for supper, it is probably best described as a large prawn cocktail, strawberries to follow.
Sea, that is a problem

Had a look at the list of markets with a map - some of the places do not seem to exist, some of them are having a makeover and some would be rather a trudge on foot with a shopping trolley. I think we'll stick with allées Paul riquet, it's a very short walk away. I could have spent a fortune on plants if allowed to take them back.

To be fair, it's rotten luck for our buyers. Not only have they lost the house they wanted but she's probably losing her job as well. At least we've only lost a sale. Keep all crossed that someone else rolls up soon. If not, and we lose the house we want, I suppose we just have to accept that it's one of those things (and that something else will turn up). Ah well- onwards and upwards as they say....

These things are sent try us Sea. :hug:

A bit like my day was sent to try me! :evil:

A massive tick in the box regarding getting to the JC on time and signing on ok. But...lots of funny obstacles tried to trip me up on the way. First I was accosted by a lady at the bus stop going out. She said she thought I needed healing and started planting her hands on my forehead doing the sign of the cross. Ok, that's a first! She chewed my ear off on the bus until she got off a few steps along. Well, that was odd. The new-ish busway is fab! Like a railway track for buses only and very scenic. The driver advised where I should get the return bus from. I got my JC appointment wrong. It was half past one not half past twelve. So getting there half an hour early I was actually an hour and a half early. I had to wander round aimlessly killing time, bored! Time to go home and got on the advised bus, showed driver ticket, asked if this was my bus, yep. Going along something didn't feel right so I asked another passenger where the journey ended. Right over the other side of Dunstabubble. Argh! So off I get in the wrong place, no idea which direction was home, asked in the library, asked in Asda, asked people, bus drivers, will I ever get home!??? Well, I did eventually, but halfway there healing hands woman got on the bus! 'Ooh, hello again, fancy seeing you here!' :lol: Natter, natter, natter..... She worked her magic on my forehead again as we got off the bus, but after the day I've had I don't hold out much hope for her powers! :lol: Now indoors, feet throbbing, counting my blessings that I only have to do that once a fortnight! :lol:

This afternoon I have made a vegan fruit loaf, which was easy as my regular recipe does not use eggs.
I now have a vegan lemon cake in the oven, found the recipe in a Good Food magazine. It states 30 mins baking but we are now 40 mins in and it's still pretty wet.
Will test it again in another 5 mins.

Hot and humid here. I really would not want to be squashed up with all the crowds at Windsor on a day like this. I'll be watching bits of the wedding whilst giving my chest of drawers a second coat of paint until the FA cup kicks off then it's footy all the way. Come on you reds!

Have fun all.

Good morning everyone,
:hug: :hug: re the house sale falling through Sea

Another lovely sunny day here so I'll be heading out to enjoy it shortly. My plans to get lots done yesterday got somewhat sidetracked. I managed to bash the wheel of my zimmer and mangled the bit that connects it to the frame so the wheel get falling off. I've ordered a new one but meantime it's a bit of a "Blue Peter" moment involving string, dowling and duct tape ;) . I do have alternatives I can use if need be but they aren't so good for getting about as they are quite heavy. I'm hoping the "repair" holds for a few days. :)

I had the tv on but wasn't particularly watching it - I think Harry's a grand lad, and I wish the pair of them all the best in the world. What stole the show for me, however, was the young cellist - absolutely out of this world!

Yes, the music was all lovely and the dress was just right. I had a very spooky moment because when everyone yesterday was talking about what the frock would look like, I pictured her in my mind wearing exactly what she turned up in, particularly the boat neck line :scared: :o

I also wondered how the inclusion of the Coptic cleric came about :?

I have had a great dy so far and am just about to settle down for the footie.

We both thought the music was perfect. They had one of the hymns we had as well as The Lord Bless you and keep you which was also a huge favourite of M-I-L and we had it sung at her funeral. The other hymn was sung at DD's wedding, mostly in Welsh. Loved the cellist and the gospel choir too.

I absolutely adored the little people especially the little one who bashed one of the others with her posy! their Mum's must have been on tenterhooks,
Also loved the elegance and understated nature of the dress and the fact that she carried a simple posy too.

Posh always looks so miserable doesn't she? DS said so would anyone who hasn't allowed a carb to pass her lips for what seems like centuries

We had to switch to French TV because we had a storm this afternoon and the sat went off. They showed everything on two channels with huge enthusiasm.

A bit of a magical wedding all round really. Security must have been extremely tight, I did wonder at one point if some idiot might have tried some horrid terrorist act.... :? Thankfully nothing. :tu: Phew !

Re hats. I had to laugh when one of the reporters commented on one particular hat as looking absolutely fabulous. It had already caught my eye as it reminded me of the lampshade my mum recently fitted to my bedroom ceiling. :lol:

I first felt the tear ducts twinging when William and Harry walked out to greet the crowds. They both looked so handsome. Meghan looked beautiful. How cute did Prince George look holding hands with the other page boy? Everyone looked stunning. I commented to my mum on how David Beckham looked a 'bit of alright' to which she replied 'Yes, he did, shame about the miz-og he walked in with!' The flowers took my breath away when they were first shown. I missed the horses - damn!

Now the most important event of the day. :bounce: I just walked up the post office with a Man U t-shirt on to come face to face with a very burly man in a Chelsea shirt. We exchanged smirky glances.... :lol:

OMG what a day!!!!! The weather was perfect. I thought The Dress looked lovely - she looked very elegant, as did her mum.
The hat Camilla was wearing - :o
VERY rare for me to give up a day out - but I wasn't gonna miss The Wedding - even tho we've TAPED it too!
That preacher did go on a bit, tho, didn't he - very passionate!
