good evening everyone it seems to have been raining non stop here.
had a lovely lunch on monday with Helen S,Tiswas,Gina and Gill;
Hope you have a great weeks holiday Maz.
I wake up around 4-30 and just doze on and off till around 7ish when I get up.Our bedroom window is always open so I usually hear the bin men who empty the local shops bins at 5-30 for some reason along with neighbours cockerel and ducks all shouting followed by the crows which seem to have increased greatly in number compared to past years.
I don't mind the noise,the routine is comforting somehow lol.In fact when my neighbour was on holiday and someone else was caring for the ducks and hend they didnt let them out till 10 each morning and I missed the racket they make !!!

Hi all~~
Miserable old day today here.
My hair is like a barometer , it does an extra curly frizz thing when I first get up if it is damp, so I could be a weather forecaster .. when it's fine and sunny it's it's 'respectable' curly self.

Oh Maz and EB you 2 are early birds , tho I wake at 7 and doze until 8.. make sure hubby is up for work or son for Uni on his 9 ers as they call them at Uni.

Are your friends you lunched with GR friends EB ?( don't answer if it inappropriate) Glad you had a good time, it's lovely to meet up with friends or ex colleagues.

My ex colleague and close friend has just bought a lappy , so I've been summoned to 'show ' her around it. She's a great friend:)
I hope she has a mouse cos I'm not too keen on the finger control.
Have a good time away Maz :)) Enjoy your break!

No wonder my ears have been glowing red hot these last coupla weeks - you've all been talking about me!!!

Nice to know I haven't been forgotten, and I do apologise for neglecting you Sandie, and Maz, and Paula, and Claire.

No real reason for keeping away. As you know I got very peed off when my site vanished without trace, not once but twice, and I kinda lost my enthusiasm.

I'm back now, for a while anyway, and will try to remember to speak with you all more regularly from now on.

Nothing much that's new to report. Me and 'er indoors are quite well except for recent colds; managed to keep that nasty swine flu at bay. How about you girls?

Most exciting(!) thing that's happened within our small family is that our 24-year old grandson, Daniel, and his girlfriend, Nicola, also aged 24, are currently driving around much of northern Europe on a 10-week tour. They bought a medium-size van and converted it into a "motorhome" type of vehicle (I call it their mobile home!). Though he'd never done anything like it before, it has to be said he's done remarkably well - in addition to the usual living/sleeping area he has installed a toilet and hot-water shower; kitchen sink; cooker. Installed windows at side and roof, etc.

They set off from Dover on the 11th October and are due back in UK, 23rd December. They have been in touch with me via their lap-top. Seem to be enjoying their nomadic lifestyle so far. They took bikes with them and have done a bit of cycling, usually from outside of a town/city into its centre. Weather has been fairly kind to them.

That's about all for now, girls, will pop along again soon I promise, meanwhile take care all of you.

Love, Brian
; ~ ))

Hi all~~

Lovely to see you posting Brian , after all it was your original thread., and I didn't want to see it vanish :)
And we were all wondering about you ( us washer women )

Glad to hear you and Mrs B are OK

Son came back from Uni first week with 'freshers flu' . Dau had it every year but was in halls of residence and then lived away so we didn't catch it from so much , although she came home most weekends. Son travels daily to uni so we are subjects to his 'bugs'. So we all have the sniffles!

Dau has gone to Swansea, with her Uni friends for the weekend.. with my car!!... It's like my arm/ leg has been chopped off!!! .. Missing it already! Still an extra bit of walking will do me good:)
luv to all



Brian Report 25 Oct 2009 12:55

Hi $andie,

So you washerwomen were wondering where the old man had got to!?
Still alive and kicking, as the saying goes!

Got the sniffles from your offspring, have you? Hope it doesn't get any worse - think I had a bout of man-flu last week, got over it in a couple of days thankfully. Very unpleasant and debilitating while it lasted.

Take care,
; ~ ))
