You are a wicked boy! Hehe!!
I didn't understand a word of the previous post.
But did just get back from the leisure centre where we successfully experimented with a new form of tennis we saw a group learning the other week. Played on a Badminton court with Racquetball rackets, foam practice tennis balls and net at half mast. Can't find any reference online, it isn't soft tennis, short tennis etc. Anyone seen it?
RTBC again. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-50182815
I especially was amused by Neopalpa donaldtrumpi and Dermophis donaldtrumpi.
In-laws unaffected by the crazy rains/flooding in their prefecture (Chiba). Saw some pictures of a railway station I know well, about knee to thigh deep in floodwater.
Got the bent dog attachment thing out the seatbelt clip. Now just need to superglue the casing back on as it wasn't meant to come apart....or some nice black tape .
Totally unexpected cheque for £56 in the post this morning
Despite my boss telling me I wouldn't get paid for being off sick as I had to wait until 9 months after passing my probation before I could have more than 5 days, which I'd already used. I was braced for a fight be as everything I read said it was after a year from the start of my contract not after I passed my probation
I got the two days sick pay
Bonus, Lesley! Pop that in a pot marked "treat" and use it for something special!
RTBnotC: My cold frame collapsed on Saturday, depositing all my spuds which were drying in it in a soggy heap.
RTBC Very little real damage was done, I now have good reason to replace the thing (which didn't owe me anything anyway, I reckon it's 7 or 8 years old), and the bits that survived are now acting as storage racks in my shedette. A good day home gardening had!
RTBC? It's a year, almost to the day since I completed on my new house. I got a card from the estate agent! On examination it was hand written and addressed, which surprised me.
You'll have to get some straw and build a clamp!
Oh, and the sky's turned clear with the MW visible, as it was on my first night here a year ago.
Very true - would save space in the back passsage as well!
(We have a flat roofed area at the back of the house that used to be a through passage containing the outside bog and - I guess - a coal store. So guess what we call it...)
That personal touch feels nice, doesn't it, Dave? We bought via a small local agency four years ago and still get a hand-delivered Christmas card each year. As a result we've recommended them to anyone we know house hunting locally. What I noticed about them first was that when we went out to look at houses, they all drove small cars...
RTBC: One week of work to go before I have a week off, which should involve meeting a very special person.....
Not your maker we trust? Russian bride? Receiving a knighthood? Audition with Simon Cowell?
Russian bride? - What about a nice Thai, - Hopefully not Ting Tong ....
Don't expect you see many reports like this in your neighbourhoods:
Road blocked by old iron boat wreck at Scalpay - car on roof - 2 car collision
It would appear no-one was hurt.
We need a link!
I'm afraid it was a report from a friend who lives there! No doubt the local paper will report it... sometime!
I’m 55 next week and I have just had a letter from my pension provider advising that my pension is now index linked as I’m 55. So a fairly respectable increase for me.
Lucky you! It all helps.
Rather not be 55 though!
