The couple of posts before Shirley's were all Greek to me


Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 22:50

Well done, Shirley. That will be a pleasant surprise for your grandson :-)

WELL !!! OH is now incapable of tasks he used to do .
Luckily we have a lovely grandson who drives 30 plus miles every 3- 4th Sunday to see if grandad needs anything done. This is despite grandson having his own family and being away all week on the continent driving a delivery lorry.

Many years ago we had the front landscaped with the fancy concrete with the pressed pattern in it and shaded colouring. W e have the conditioner that is supposed to be applied every 3 years or so but here in Kent with hosepipe bans and then wet summers it hasnt been done for yonks.

On Tuesday I decided today was the day to jet wash it . We have a Karcher but it was so long sine it was used the prongs on the plug had rust on em . I cleaned it up set it all up with hose etc and after a few false starts it was AWAY we go .

Quite therapeutic jetting off the gunge and some yellow moss spores and its now ready for grandson to apply the top coatt again on his next visit.

Chuffed with myself !!

:-D :-D :-D :-D

Is he a Greek philosopher?

If I decided to sue, would that be what eponymous means? ;-)

Will you be serving (the papers)


Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 12:59

I'll take you to court for that

No need to cause a racquet


Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 12:45

That's ace, Errol


eRRolSheep Report 28 Jun 2013 12:41

What the deuce....!!!?


Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 12:37

Ah!..the balls are still in your court, then!


Sharron Report 28 Jun 2013 12:37

Looks like it is!

My state of potential performance is not up for public discussion.


Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 12:23

Errol, you surely can't be feeling knackered already?


eRRolSheep Report 28 Jun 2013 12:10

**hobbles on to thread**

Mayfield - they won't be needing me now.


Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 12:03

lol Barbra. Having done meat inspection in the UK as part of my duties, I knew what they were but still tried them :-)

A bit tasteless unless prepared and cooked correctly ;-)

It's one reason that young lambs walk with a bow-legged gait

:-D :-D Mayfield

Oh sorry! This is embarrassing I got the wrong dress code, I thought it was an invite to a Ann Summers party!

Mayfield :-S

Yes you did Allan..

Not just different between our neck of the woods and UK but even between NZ and Oz.

We will stick with mowing our berm while Aussies mow their nature strip..

And you are right about brand names of products elsewhere are something else over here or vice versa.



Allan Report 28 Jun 2013 09:22

Hi Persey, I did say that lamb's fry was a totally different beastie in the UK.

Nations separated by a common language :-)

When we first arrived in Australia, sticky tape was sold here with the same name as a well known UK male contraceptive!

I do hope that it did not lead to any blunders ;-)

We also do enjoy a bit of Aussie lamb's fry with sausages, mash, and onion gravy :-)

Which witchetty grubs are which?


Persephone Report 28 Jun 2013 04:20

I am not surprised that Mersey had the runs after that concoction of Errol's...

The Prairie mountain Oysters I know are not called lamb's fry here.. lamb's fry is liver..

Errol chuck a few wichetty grubs into the soup and Allan will be ok he is an Aussie now after all.
