Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Redoing the mastic under the upstairs window didn't work, still dripping when the rain is blowing against the front of the house. I took advantage of the break in the rain this morning and have been up the ladder, the troughing had moved away from the house by an inch so some of the rain was runnin...

The school where my son works have isolated the pupils and staff who have just returned from Italy, fortunately they have some 'spare' buildings . No sign of the school closing though.

Tiffany?
Aye, the original Tiffany glass lampshades are very expensive. There are lots 'in the style of', I don't have a pic of the actual shade that's hanging from the ceiling but it's very much like this one

Re: Where Have You Just Been?

Drifted into B&Q yesterday and casually mentioned that the pensioners discount card wouldn't do me much good on a monday. I was told it had been stopped on everything other than gardening goods so there's no point in going on a wednesday to help people with a bit of discount. I joined the B&Q Club ...

That’s a tiny corner.
I do like the lamp! ( not sure it goes with the wallpaper...)
There's a different colour Tiffany style shade hanging in the centre of the room, that probably doesn't either :-)

You started the slide after my perfectly valid for the topic post by querying Nerf Guns, so it's all your own fault Stanley. :extrawink: :biggrin2:

How muddy is it round the reservoirs Kev?
It was halfway up my boots in places on the lower res, we only went a short distance from Skipton Road and then turned left up towards Langroyd. Looking forward to drier weather so we can explore properly.

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

I realised this morning that after 20 hours of constant rain I have the same small leak in the kitchen window head. It has been noted and will be dealt with! I have the same, I believe I have identified the source. The mastic seal around the upstairs window above is failing and the rain is being dr...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

The site is terribly slow this morning, posting is like wading through treacle. Not a problem we have encountered lately. [I've checked, connection speed is normal and other sites are OK.] Later, at 05:00, it has recovered and is now on normal speed. Earlier I reflected that it was dial-up speed an...
