Lots of mentions for good chums and family, comment on politicians' failure, more fun than seriousness and tinctures for all...
I must say I have seen better armchairs at IKEA!
Lifting straps to back of truck, slit bag and drive....I'm lazy.
Ha ha ha Reevers!Does anyone know where the old stuff goes?
Nice idea Thud, but it's out on the verge now...Gotta be done though, then I can finally zap the weeds with Roundup!
The farm next door would have taken it off your hands, head, or what other places you put it to fill the holes in his gateways where the tractors get stuck in wet weather. Actually, they would have attached a scraper jobbie to the tractor and done if for you for free. Looking at the size of the bag exactly how long is your driveway and are you absolutely certain you've got enough? Please tell me you're not going to just chuck bits all over what's currently there and here's me thinking you were a man who did a proper job! If it were me (as my OH often says to me) I'd have bribed someone who owes you (preferably someone from the council) to completely remove the top layer, fill it with ballast, bang it down making sure that any water will run away and not towards your doorstep, added sand on top then put flags down with a resin infill between them. Hey-ho, no more weeds! It just won't do my old friend it just won't do, added to which you've dumped the stuff on the verge. That's not on, or rather it is now. Do something for me please - don't forget to avoid it when backing your car out or walking home a bit tiddly as I won't tend to your scrapes, bumps or bruises no matter how much you pay me in groats!
Goosey, it would be payment in full, unabreviated grasps not groats - believe me!I did the whole bag of stuff this morning and spread and levelled everywhere. It doesn't look half-bad either, but took several tinctures to quieten the muscles (such as they are) afterwards, and I've just recently woken up to a new drive and patio!Get ready for your birthday you lovely lady!xxx
Is that grasps or gasps?! Well done you and isn't it nice to see the rewards of all your labours with a liberal libation or seven and a bit of con brio - ha! OH is away shooting at Bisley until Monday pm so am having a nice quiet time including doing bits of housework 'n' stuff, making my dinners (last night I had M&S breaded lemon plaice with new pots, asparagus, and a mix of crème fraiche with chopped parsley which was rather tasty) plus a few necessary tinctures to wash it all down. Ok, my packing plan is going nicely. Got my hair, nails, shoes, handbags, jewellery (not the Royal ones as OH is in charge of those plus my cards and presents that my dear friends have brought round), make-up, perfume, lingerie, and other necessities all sorted out, so today it's the clothes turn. As I'm having to cater not only for my big day but also for staying a few days with our rellies in Oxon and don't know how the weather will be like by then, it's a case (no pun intended) of layers for daytime wear, so if it's as cool as it has been there last week I can - oh bugger, you know what I mean! I'm not going to hog your blog anymore with my errant ramblings, so if you're half as happy as I will be next week then job's a good'un! PS - Scrobs - you must learn how to spell as nothing escapes Goosey's beady blue eyes!
Crikey I've just noticed - posted at 06:22. That's keen.
I am a bit of a minx for noticing spelling mistakes and the wrong use of the apostrophe but I forgive him whole-haartedly!
Not much point in lazing around if wide awake, Mr H!Also, if an idea comes into this ol' head then I may as well go downstairs and write it up!
"I am a bit of a minx for noticing spelling mistakes and the wrong use of the apostrophe but I forgive him whole-haartedly!"Where is there a cock-up then Goosey?My post is fine, so is Mr H's...C'mon, you're a spritely gal and should cough and tell!;0)
Pssst Boss,Je crois que Madame pense que le mot "abreviated" porte un autre "b"....Ces puristes!! Tant pis (and no, that does not mean what some people might assume!)
Why are you talking in Welsh, Reevers?
Now you've really asked for it by making yet another spelling mistake, or were you just performing a renal function test?!! If Reevers was talking in Welsh he would have written "Rwy'n credu bod Madam yn meddwl bod y gair "abreviated" yn cario "b" arall. Mae'r purwyr hyn !! Yn rhy ddrwg (ac nid, nid yw hynny'n golygu yr hyn y gallai rhai pobl eu tybio!" Roughly translated it means "The post from the gallant fair Madam from the meadows got my head so muddled and full of incredulity that you should make such a mistake that I had to stick it back on with Araldite glue. What a carry-on and don't blame it on a problem with your spell-checker." As I'm in a very good mood today I'll quietly whisper in your ear that you missed a "b" out of "abbreviated" and also think you meant to write sprightly not "spritely" although I can get a bit puckish at times!!
Pourquoi? Pourquoi??? Er..Je garde juste ma main (comme the jardinier a dit a la maitresse d'art!)Et maintenant vous savez.GG - J'aime bien le Gallois rarebit! (Mes les Gallois chantent beaucoup trop fort, souvent et a plat! :-)) [h/t Messrs Flanders and Swann]
rvi. Just to set you straight, I didn't mean I like playing ice hockey, I meant I have a rather impish sense of humour and now you know too! Your post has just reminded me to water my plants in the jardinier, turn the mattress over, buy some more French cigarettes and some Roquefort cheese, and wash the dishes before I leave on my holidays! Thanks for doing that. Where would I be without you?
Dear Madame, There will be no charge for updating your reminder pad (unlike Goggle and all the others). Have a good holiday - and don't do anything I wouldn't enjoy.
Reevers, you really need to know what happens when you take Goosey on...I tried several times, and nearly got to the top, but never the bottom!You do realise that she is only a very young lady don't you, so beware the thought police..;0)
Ha! Thanks for the warning. So far I think it is probably honours even.Now you have 2 devout practising lunatics loose on your pages!!
