Lindybird: Let's hear it for burly cousins! Don't blame them for wanting to zoom off home - that's a lot of deliveries in one day.
We are going out to dinner tonight - using up the gift certificate granddaughter gave us for Xmas. Am also recording the latest Democratic debate among the remaining candidates.
I was wondering how Forestboar is doing and also thinking we haven't heard from George for a long time...
Take care all.
Good Morning. Just having my cuppa in bed, as I had another broken night, coughing, so my OH left me to sleep in today. Think I'll have to try sitting up tonight instead of laying down. Ironically, he's the one who's had the bad cold and is coughing during the day. But thank goodness, he's sleeping relatively well. Annette, I read your post as I went to bed so I was thinking of you and hoping you were enjoying your meal out. Rosy, the old arrangement was a very long sideboard with cupboards affixed to the wall, above. I can see that although this is a big piece it won't hold as much and doesn't have the amount of display area either, under glass. I'll have to put my small pieces of glass and tiny photos into another glass fronted cupboard I have in the room already. Going off to find my mobile phone as I took a photo of the smaller new cupboard - this was bought to put the tv on as my OH often uses that to watch sport when I'm in the sitting room.
EDIT: I also hope that ForestBoar is coping OK, and that George is alright.
dibnlib: Haven't seen 1917 but was listening to film reviews on the radio and - as Lindybird said - it got good reviews, plus a friend of mine saw it and liked it. One interesting fact was that the filmmakers dug a mile-long trench for a scene which involves a continuous shot that follows a character as he makes his way across the battlefield.
Lindybird: I will need to go away in March too to rest up from all your furniture escapades. :-) Dinner was good - as usual. Are you off to Fuerteventura again? Have you tried taking any of that stuff that quiets nighttime coughs?
OG: Hope weather holds for your outing; good luck getting a plant for that corner.
PatO; Good that the metal strip didn't decapitate anyone.
I'll have to have a word with the crows today. Yesterday afternoon I looked out the window and saw several pieces of my transplanted dymondia laying on the ground, roots exposed. The darn crows figured out the soil was nice and wet and recently turned and so a good place to find bugs, worms, etc. I found old pet gates, shade cloth, and other bits and bobs and laid them over the area after I replanted everything but must go get more shade cloth for the whole area today. Really! As if a whole-grain English muffin every morning isn't good enough!. They'll be in here rooting around in the fridge at this rate.
Annette - don't blame the crows - I love them. They are so clever and in my old house I had them same pair back every year to show me their new family - I did used to give them monkey nuts which they had to work at to get their reward. They seemed to know what time I got home from work and as soon as walked into my kitchen they would all be lined up on the fence. If I ignored them they would all shuffle up to get closer to the kitchen what did you have for you dinner out? I hope I'm not the only one interested in what other people eat as I need inspiration to try different things.
I hope you all survived the storm in the UK - last night in Suffolk was so noisy and very wet - but I made it into work although the roads were still partially flooded on way home.
Diane and AQ - how are things in your neck of the woods - I hope things have calmed down and either cooled down or warmed up.
Stay healthy all and its only a few days until the weekend!!
