Morning Maz. Google Milo and see what amazing feats of sporting activity you will be able to achieve if you drink the stuff.
You will be like me, superwoman. An overweight superwoman if you eat the stuff by the tin. Just watch out how many Tim Tams you consume with each mug of Milo.

Morning all, just finished shampooing the lounge carpet. Drinking this coffee and then of to do hall and stairs. Christmas comes but once a year (Thank Goodness LOL)

Oh and I will hopefully get tree up tonight given good luck and a fair wind LOL

I still haven't got my tree up, I'm waiting for the decorators to finish. Hopefully they'll finish today and I'll get it up tomorrow.

I've never seen any Milo on the shops, I'm going to Google it to see what it looks like.

LG, you shouldn't be shampooing carpets when you're just starting to get your strength back. I'm sure it could have waited another week.

Ah, just had a look at Google, Milo is like Ovaltine with chocolate added.


AuntySherlock Report 11 Dec 2009 11:11

It's OK Pauline, LG has tied three boakins together and a couple of the dragons are dipping them in the shampoo and dragging them across the carpet. The rest of the boakins are queued up at the door waiting to be allowed to play in the soap suds.

LG is curled up on the couch watching reruns of the last few footy matches.

How do I explain the difference between ovaltine and milo. They do taste different, the texture is definitely different. Ovaltine is sort of crunchier. You can buy little packets of ovaltinees here. That's what it tastes like.

*Glares at Sweetpea*

No Christmas dinner for him this year!

How on earth could anyone log in as LG and delete her thread? More so, why would anyone want to do that?

Oh, I replied to Aunty's post and now it's gone.


AuntySherlock Report 11 Dec 2009 11:38

I agree and decided it was a stupid scenario to go with so I deleted my post. It doesn't make any sense at all.

Edit. I need to go to sleep. I have sent LG a message with the information. Will catch you all evening your time.

hello everyone have just done the programme for the nativity service tuesday evening got a party tonite in wolsingham


AuntySherlock Report 11 Dec 2009 19:08

Morning Maz, Sound like you are well and truly into the swing of Christmas. It is very early here about 5.30 am, just breaking dawn. Hopefully it will be a nice day. The weather forecasts for UK are pretty bad, looks like you are in for some wintery stuff. Hope you all are keeping warm.


YG Report 11 Dec 2009 19:32

It's flippin' freezing here lol!! Car was solid in ice this morning. Ooooh, I love winter arrrrgghhhhh!!!!

Couldn't get in the shed for the ice scraper because the lock was frozen! Roll on summer!!


AuntySherlock Report 11 Dec 2009 20:53

Oh I am tangled in such a mess in my tree. One of OHs aunts (mother's sister) married a widower. I found his mother, father and first wife. Then I found aunty living with him (after marriage) in the electoral roll. Then I checked the year prior to his second marriage and found him living with another female, and his father. Now I don't know if he was living with his father and his father's second wife, his father and his sister, his father and another aunt or if he had another "wife" twelve months before marrying OHs aunt. Stupid electoral roll does not give ages.

Now, there you go. Aren't you all glad you are able to share that little muddle.


AuntySherlock Report 12 Dec 2009 02:17

Well I'll be..... I've killed this thread as well. It's only 17 minutes past 2 am over there. Surely you lot are still up partying!!

Nobody, nothing, zilch, nil, nada, whatever are you lot doing.

Don't tell me you are all huddled in bed with the wind howling outside the windows, and snow falling with a heavy thud.

Well I might as well make hay while the sun almost shines over here.

Mine, mine, mine. My throne, broomstick, cartons of booze, frogs, firemen, weird biscuits, laser gun and Arsenal footy team.

Stay away all of you. Not sharing. Sweetpea start up the generator, lets have some soothing Aunty music so I can doze on the throne.!!!!!

Hmmm today the thread, tomorow the Ark!!

OK so I'm worried about LG. I do hope she didn't overdo it with the scrubbity dubbity up and down the stairs.


Mazfromnorf Report 12 Dec 2009 05:36

not so aunty
its early here and cats thought we wake mum for food as i have to be ready early to go out with frog am awake now so .am going to write some cards ,Must learn how to do e-cards they are lovely

We had thick fog all day yesterday but it seems to have gone this morning, I can actually see across the road.

Hmm, Aunty got to play at being Queen for quite a while last night, hope LG hasn't had a relapse.

Maz, you can make lovely cards by using PowerPoint.


LaGooner Report 12 Dec 2009 08:32

Morning all, yes I am back to claim my throne. Had a very busy day yestreday getting carpets done and putting up the tree ready for our one toddler demolition squad to see.LOL


AuntySherlock Report 12 Dec 2009 08:43

Oh thank goodness. Here you are have it back. It is far too much trouble for me. Sweetpea keeps playing Queen songs, the broomstick wants to fly all the time, ..............................

whoooooooooooooooooooosh!! quick duck! The firemen keep asking for YG the frogs have drunk all the beer and DET is looking for it, and that jolly throne is very uncomfortable. And to top it all off the crown is faaaaaaar to big for my dainty little head.

Mumble, grumble. Stomp, stomp.


LaGooner Report 12 Dec 2009 08:53

Well get your own crown then LOL. It only fits me cos I have wrapped loads and loads of tinsel around it,my head is not that big !!!!. And no comment from you missus


AuntySherlock Report 12 Dec 2009 09:14

Oh and a La, La, La to you too.

What's this??? Are we trying to sing a song??

Have we gone to La La Land

Or heaven forbid, bite my tongue, and I'm still laughing, have we thrown over the mighty red and white and are now going to follow Aussie Rules Football???


LaGooner Report 12 Dec 2009 09:15

Cheek . hopefully I have sorted it.
