morning alll
aunty i liked that the meercats are brilliant well rumour has it i have the afternoon off


AuntySherlock Report 9 Dec 2009 07:00

No I didn't understand it either. The only info I have is that it is an excellent Christmas video.

Maz, afternoon off. Are we visiting or expecting visitors. Has Her Maj visited your establishment and decreed a half day holiday. Excellent, catapult her worshipfulness over here to do the same. Although I think I can hang out for the next few days and then we have big holidays.

I have to go send a detailed explanation to Ancestry on why I don't like something because it does not work properly. Don't know why I don't keep my mouth shut!!!

Go for it Aunty! Sorry, not going to look at your link if it is a moving thingy cos I'm paranoid about download know why lol!

Hope everyone has recovered from their various exertions yesterday. Still hoping to go out this evening if my friend and I can get to each other's homes.


Mazfromnorf Report 9 Dec 2009 15:36

I have made a start I now need to look and see what bedding I have as I have a house full for christmas ,Daughters Fianc`ee is allegic to cats lol .so this will be fun and they love him
on the video link when i looked its got about three links the one i saw was animals singing but there is another link with a proverb too


AuntySherlock Report 9 Dec 2009 19:04

Hi Maz, It is the animals singing. Not very long. I think the proverb comes in at the end. Reckon it's a do gooders video.

Understand your reluctance to download anything DET. Are you driving or walking between the two h ouses. If driving why don't you ask the workmen the best place to cross the roads. And if walking well they could always put you into one of their wheelbarrrows and trundle you across!!

Q for LG. Nervous about the next game??? Liverpool isn't it??

On the Leader Board of Thread Killing I reckon I might just be on top, or very near to it. Oh I have been practising, and had lots of success.

Just had reply from Ancestry re my query. They are working on the problem and hope to have a solution soon. Information is very welcome because it means I was not having a senior's moment and doing something creative.


YG Report 9 Dec 2009 21:00

Evening absent friends!!

How is everyone today? All hiding in the throne room?


Mazfromnorf Report 9 Dec 2009 21:04

oo its quiet on here have not had a rest really been running through the play for tuesday with the youth group .they were hyper so hope they were listening


YG Report 9 Dec 2009 21:11

Hi Maz!! How are you?


Mazfromnorf Report 9 Dec 2009 21:15

Hi YG I am fine thank you am having problems with text messages hardly got any signal today in this area they are getting through but only just .most annoying
How are you


YG Report 9 Dec 2009 21:23

I'm ok, but very stressed at work at the moment. I am having to bite my tongue to stop me putting my retirement notice in!!


AuntySherlock Report 10 Dec 2009 02:04

Hi YG and Maz. YG if your work is anything like mine at the moment your tongue must nearly be bitten through.

It's wonderful watching everyone enjoying themselves preparing for the end of the year with celebrations and festivities. I'm the wally watching all the invoices roll in, the ones generated by the aforesaid celebrations. The ones that need to be paid before the end of the year.


Mazfromnorf Report 10 Dec 2009 06:00

morning all
had a really good sleep busy day ahead again need to shop for some bits today ,have youth again today ,still hardly any signal on my phone but messages are getting there .


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 10 Dec 2009 09:04

Has anyone checked the boakins are still in the Throne room? Perhaps they decided that the phone mast needed a decoration and have drapped their glitter encrusted bodies over it lol.

Poor Aunty and YG, working their fingers to the bone. At least AS will have a month off when the work is done. But I bet YG's will increase in the New Year!

Road repairers decided to have the night off, so apart from my friend nearly running down a man in a florescent jacket walking in the middle of the road, there appeared to have been no activity. Didn't fancy tar on my botty, thanks Aunty!!!!! We take it in turns to collect each other then disappear off down the pub for a girly chat without OH's in attendence. 3 drinks each - one alcoholic then a soft one and the last a coffee. Despite my reputation, a very sober affair!


AuntySherlock Report 10 Dec 2009 09:25

Oh DET It pleases me greatly that you solved your problem with regard to the crossing of the street. Being a thinking type person, never short of a suggestion, by sometimes short of half a wit, my next suggestion was to be the catapult.

I really don't know why you never thought of it in the first place. The homeward journey would have been a delight. A couple more beverages, whoooooooosh across the street, right into your own front yard, bounce, bounce, slide through the front door.

Psst! I'd type this in little letters if I could. Been lurking lately??? I think we should set up a scoring system. Hits, misses and fouls, and award points to the best, um the best, oh dear.................

I really like our little thread!!!


LaGooner Report 10 Dec 2009 09:25

Morning DET , morning all. Hope you have all been behaving in my absence LOL. I was so tired last night after 2 nights of partying with Rainbows then last night Brownies that I could not be bothered to even switch the computer on LOL. Feeling a bit better today thank goodness only woke up once coughing last night so not so bad. I am supposed to be bomb proofing the house at the moment as I am having a certain little visitor later this morning LOL.


LaGooner Report 10 Dec 2009 09:25

Morning Aunty you appeared whilst I was typing.


AuntySherlock Report 10 Dec 2009 09:35

Morning LG. I'm just back from body torture class. Ouch!!

I meant to ask the other day. Did you ever hear from GR as to why your thread was deleted.

I never heard beyond their initial response to the email I sent.


LaGooner Report 10 Dec 2009 09:37

No not a thing Aunty but Hey ho nothing unusual there. LOL. My body hurts without going anywhere outside the house. I have strained my stomach and back coughing OUCH !!!!! Now have to hold on to them while I cough.


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 10 Dec 2009 09:37

Enjoy your day LG. Glad your getting more sleep. My cough from half term has only really 'got better' this week.

Went to bed even later than normal , so know what you are refering to AS. Live and let live, or as my old mum used to say 'if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all'.

Tried to explain to my friend about Nut Lodge and its origins....and utterly confused her - lol


AuntySherlock Report 10 Dec 2009 09:42

Given the current intellectual debates abounding in the hallowed halls of far beyond Nut Lodge, I really have to wonder what it was that was considered offensive in our thread.

I would really like to ask GR that very question. However I am exceedingly troubled by the fact that in doing so I might be the cause of the demise of this thread.

One never knows where the fickle finger of fate will fall.
