CHATTERBOX LXXXVII Xander

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

No more antibios issued, but she's got to go back in 4 weeks if the cough doesn't continue to improve.

Ah I misunderstood ... glad she doesn’t need more meds ... a persistent cough can be so wearing, but getting the ‘all clear’ will perk you both up no end :D

Good Morning Wild Ones, I am waiting to see a picture of you as a Christmas Elf, EM :D
For the record on last nights Only Connect I got the first question correct on the first clue :o it was all down hill after that.

The stuffed up head that I’ve had for ages seems determined to turn into a cold ... I’ve woken coughing and sneezing ... perhaps that’s an improvement and it’s preparing to leave ... perhaps ... :|

Good morning wild ones. We are supposed to have a nice day with sunshine later, I think someone should have told the sky. It is really dark and cloudy and looks like rain :rolleyes: Suffs I hope your cold passes quickly :hug:

Hello :hug:
Life has been getting in the way but have been reading back. :hug: to all those that need them. I was presented with a very prestigious award last week for services to the community.

Bob and I have done something very silly. :oops: We have bought ourselves bicycles. :lol: :lol: :lol:

On Sunday we wobbled 3.68 km along the seafront but decided to turn back as the prom was very busy. It’s about 40 years since I have been on a bike. :scared:

I didn’t fall off but my legs are black and blue due to not getting the hang of the pedals. Doh. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I did also manage to walk 10 000 steps yesterday as well. Going on the bike was not an option as it was hissing down.

Because of health issues and physical constraints eg heart condition plus stroke and asthma I have to exercise in carefully controlled small blocks but although I treated myself to a new outfit for the award I was still very conscious of my size.

I would like to be certainly a little smaller for Christmas. :hug:

Our area offers exercise referral here but round here it is only available one hour a week and I didn’t find it particularly motivational as I was clearly the youngest by about 20 years and each gym session was so over subscribed you spent at least 20 minutes out of each hour waiting to use a piece of equipment. :rolleyes:

Morning all! :wave:.

Great effort with the cycling/walking jrc. Round here there are Walk for Health groups who walk short distances with a qualified leader (there are longer walks too). Everyone I know who's joined really loves it and has made good friends as a result.

Oh no Suffs! You don't want a cold now :(.

Anyone who has met me would know that I could not be described as elfin :lol: :xtree:

A dry but cloudy day forecast. The sun has just appeared though. Need to go shopping as I have run out of fruit & veg. Am eating my way through all the freezer bargains I stockpiled earlier in the year, mostly meat and fish. Should keep me going for a while and there are some nice surprises :lol:. Meeting GD from school with her ma this afternoon so that I know where to go when I do it on my own. The first day yesterday appeared to go well.

Edited to say I missed the bit about the award jrc! Big congrats and I bet you looked lovely :luv:

Morning everyone :wave:

Suffs, have you been sleeping in a field with the gate open? Bas timing and I hope it vanishes soon.

Congratulations on the award jrc and good luck with the exercise regime. You are doing better than me. I can't ride a bike :oops:

It is tipping it down here today , has been since 3.00am. We ahve been catching up with things that need to be done but, unfortunately the telephone and live box have been off since last night . Some things we need to do involves the telephone including called GD to wish her happy birthday. No way, even for her al I walking down the road in all that rain to get a mobile signal

I have managed to redeem a 25% off voucher for Sephora to order the Clarins stuff I need. They always send a mass of samples in the box which I save for the GDs

I have just taken measurements and weight and will plot it weekly. I am slightly conscious though of trying this before but due to being on large doses of steroids losing weight is very difficult. :(

Back from the big supermarket, I managed to get some Dove Farm yeast but not good vanilla paste, that will probably turn up next month for the Christmas baking. I was greeted with great joy by one of the assistants in the bakery dept, she used to work in one of the local bakers, the move meant promotion.
After I had paid for my groceries I exited to a wall of noise, the local ladies had taken their husbands shopping and congregated in the coffee shop.

Good morning
My sinuses are refusing to clear too Suffolk

Well done one the bike jrc. I’ve been thinking of getting a static exercise bike for several reasons
I can’t cycle on the road, not safe with my eyesight
Love walking but not keen on very dark cold days
My friend’s orthopaedic surgeon says it’s the best exercise with arthritic hips
I can listen to my backlog of audio books while I pedal :)

Does that sound reasonably convincing? :D
I think so

Might go to Ikea later, was waiting for the end of the school holidays

Have a good day everyone

Good afternoon everyone,
That's great news about your Mum Grassy :hi5:
EM - my far from elfin friend who retired from nursing a couple of years worked in the local Dobbies last Christmas as a "Santa helper/elf" she absolutely loved it and is hoping to get to do it again this year.
It's nice and dry here this morning though it's to get wet & windy later. I had a routine Drs appointment and some errands to run, it was lovely to get there and back dry but the wind was decidedly on the chilly side. My stove got swept and serviced yesterday, it didn't take the guys long and apparently I have been using it properly ;) .They had just come from a dirty job where someone hadn't bothered to get their chimney swept for many years despite using the open fire regularly. The owners had noticed the fire wasn't drawing properly and stuck a stick up the chimney causing a soot collapse. They were so lucky it put the fire out rather than scattering it and apparently the mess is horrific pretty much ruining what was an expensively decorated room!
This afternoon is "list time" for going away, I do like a list and between my own stuff and the catering supplies I've quite a lot to remember to take. I've definitely turned into my Mother who we used to tease for her lists :lol: .

If we dodn't have a certificate to say we have had the chimney swept by an approved sweep each year, our insurance in invalidated

That sounds pretty sensible, I do wonder with the recent trend, certainly round here, for stoves/open fires being used if there is a need to increase publicity about the importance of regular chimney sweeping. Certainly when I got my stove installed last year they were very clear about the need for that but not everyone uses a company especially if there is an existing open fire or stove and might not be aware.

We have an open coal fire burning throughout the winter. I had the chimney swept and surveyed a couple of weeks ago. The survey included sticking a camera up which located various problems with the brickwork and the lining. As we’ve lived here for 38 years we had to take the hit on the repairs but we do have the relevant safety certificate now. I think it was BusyBee or possibly Amber who influenced me into getting the job done properly as we intend moving in the next 5 years or so.

This North London firm were terrific.

jrc, congratulations from me too and here's to many happy bicycle rides in the future. :hug: :D

EM- I think you'd make a splendid Elf. :)

We had our chimney swept regularly when in the previous house. We had an open fire which we used fairly regularly during the winter. It'll be one thing I miss about the new house (no open fire). We have wondered about getting a wood-burner installed but I think that'll be one for the wish list realistically.

I used to ride a bike quite a lot but hate the roads now. I had a cheap exercise bike for a while but found myself getting really bored after about 2 minutes whereas at the gym I could happily go on for 40 minutes or more. I'm sure it was because people were looking :lol:.Equipment like that is so cumbersome unless you are lucky enough to have a dedicated room.

Plans to meet GD have been postponed until tomorrow because I was given the wrong time :rolleyes:. They are doing 2 half days and one half day staying to lunch before starting whole days on Thursday. The lunch choices look nice. They choose online in advance. How times change!

It’s also a condition of our house insurance, but I only found the clause whilst looking for something else. I wonder if it’s in most policies but hidden in the small print- not a problem until you need to claim and then the insurers look for reasons not to pay out. Maybe I’m just cynical ;)


And yes it was a condition of our purchase of this house that there was an up to date chimney certification, we hadn’t a clue but it was something our solicitor routinely requests.

Edited to add.........as we live off the gas grid you find more people rely on heating in some form which requires a chimney Around here.

I hadn't heard about a freeze yet but am going out on Sunday and want to look respectable. The forecast currently says it is going to be wall to wall sunshine and 25 degrees. I had hoped to wear some smart autumnal clothes, will have to rethink. Mustn't grumble about nice weather I suppose :rolleyes:.

Things to do out and about this morning before going to GD's school. Forecast shows black clouds all morning but no rain. We have black clouds, I hope they are right about the rain.

Still no phone or livebox. Thank goodness for the satellite link. Though even that went AWOL yesterday when the rain was really heavy.

Bright and sunny this morning and much cooler.

Well done for planning ahead for next year Suffs and keep up the seagull staring practise. WE have friends who live on the NE coast and at one point had to have their garden netted over to stop the gulls from attacking then everytime they went out.

I must get myself downstairs and make the passionfruit curd I have been promising Mr R and Mannu. We are going to try his Autumn menu on Sunday :drool:

Good morning everyone,
It certainly felt like winter yesterday evening - cold, wet, dark and blowing a gale. My back gate has blown off it's hinge :( s. Thankfully the forecast is looking dry if not terribly warm over in Fife this weekend!
It's dry and sunnyish so far this morning but chilly, I started off with just a long sleeved top but promptly had to pop a light jumper over it.
Ir*ning beckons today I've put it off for as long as I can but needs must, I'll do some before lunch and some more later on and that should make a decent dent in the pile. I think I'll be safe enough to just fold and put away my shorts and sleeveless tops as I don't think I'll be needing them until next year now.

Thank you EM :hug: We do smile a lot at the thought of how long we’ve been “happy together” given one or two prognostications from well-meaning folk who threw up their hands in horror at the age difference and the fact that I’d only been ‘formally separated’ for a short while (although ‘emotionally distanced’ for much much much longer).
I remember some years ago bumping into one of our former lecturers who had herself married a younger former student at the art school. “Oh Suffs and The Artist, ” she said, “Still together?” .... “Oh yes Hepzibah” we replied in unison “Still together” and grinnned broadly. :D ;)

I'm sure it would have been worth it even if it hadn't lasted Suffs!

It would be rather exciting if Boris was incarcerated in the Tower wouldn't it? I don't think any development could surprise me now. :rolleyes:.

GD has been met from school. A difference in attitude is already detectable :?.

Glad things went well mimi :hug:.

Stirling Castle would be a more appropriate venue for a Scottish ruling. Or better still Rockall. Is there an apt verse in the Flanders & Swann song? I’m sitting having coffee in an Aire on the A4 in Alsace and don’t have time to look.

Good Morning Wild Ones, I have been waiting for Microsoft to update this laptop :rolleyes:
My Wednesday craft group has resumed, unfortunately our American member is returning to the USA after eight years on the island. I know that she does not want to go as she has a congenial life style but t all relates to her husbands job.

Good morning all :D :mug:
A lovely bright and mild morning ... as arranged the weathers improving for our holiday 8-) did I mention we’re going on holiday a week today ??? :oops: :lol: :duck:
I’m heading south this morning to pop in to deliver some bits and bobs to DD including the lovely warm cardigan she asked me to knit for her lovely MIL. On the way back I’ll visit a farm shop and pick up something for supper as OH has been called into work again, and a joint or something a bit special for the weekend ...

You'll be basking in an Indian Summer on your hols Suffs.... :luv: :D

Mild here today but light rain forecast for later. Weekend is looking good though I'm Down South for a couple of days from tomorrow, staying with dear friend who is getting married next weekend. We're collecting her bespoke dress from the dress maker on Saturday... :luv:

Good morning
Quite nice here so far
Just realised I meant to have my hair cut today or yesterday so will have to see if there’s a space available

Finally met my new next door neighbour yesterday - autocorrect wanted me to use the US spelling, and he is in fact American. Seems fine. We have discussed ground rules for cats, plants, bicycles. I haven’t seen the big black cat recently but apparently he has been going next door

Have a good day everyone
Sue
