Original Goldfinch and Eagle-eye said:Bungalows are easier to find in Scotland
They are a sight more affordable as well.
Original Goldfinch and Eagle-eye said:We have thrown out one decoration from Christmas - commonly known as "the farting Santa" he was filled with circulating glitter, but his action never seemed quite right and was accompanied by noises!
He would have been right up our street! Unless, of course, he came equipped with leaking methane?
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
Morning all: Just on the BBC website where it says Boris is urging that schools open but that more restrictions may be imposed. What? Seems to be a disconnect there. Ms. D has been doing online classes since March; her school won't open at all for the remainder of this school year. I agree with OG that we shouldn't be telling kids they'll be damaged for life (watch out for self-fulfilling prophecies and all that)., but even granddaughter, who's giving Ms. D extra homework on top of the online classes, is getting worried. I'm assuming summer school will be mandatory (if you can mandate anything in this pesky country) for many kids for the next two years....and that's assuming we'll have Covid under control by the spring.
dibnlib: Thank you for that link. Made me smile.
Yup. Bathroom has silver decorations as it goes better with the fittings, rather than the mainly gold & red which is everywhere else. Kitchen, conservatory, hallway, front porch, dining room, sitting room. When we have guests, a couple of pretty bits in the guest bedroom. Here is someone in the kitchen:
A reindeer, given to me years ago by a friend- he is soft to cuddle but I leave him safely on a shelf. There are 3 reindeer in there, and a talking robin! Plus lots of holly and glittering tiny lights. And these:
In our bedroom, lives a singing cactus!! He sings "Feliz Navidad" because of course he is Mexican so he sings in Spanish. He also jigs around and has a switch so that you can turn him off, otherwise he would drive you crazy as he's sound activated!! Sometimes I switch him on without telling my OH......
Edit: We've had him for untold years, I don't even remember where I got him from, now. Every year I think he wont work any more, but he does!
