Re: Bagpuss

Soon, Nolic.
I have been taking pics along the way.
Might take some toward the end of the week...I have a large area of paddock I want to grass first.
(it is based on a collection of photos I took on a drive around Pendle in 2009)

Re: Bagpuss

Well I can't complain about today. Cool enough to paint, so I spent two hours doing so. I always feel so relaxed after a painting session, and the mural is so big ( six full length panels) that I get to indulge in all sorts of painting from slapping it on any which way, to fine and fiddly detail. So...

Re: SPRING 2012

From where I am sitting, I don't have a hope of seeing either the Atlantic or Warsthorne...though I am nearer the sea than Barlick... Lovely day here. Slightly overcast, but warm enough at 23 degrees. A good day for getting lots of little jobs done, both inside and out. Popped in to see Cazza this m...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Using the oven economically today. Had an oversupply of ripe tomatoes, so have a roasting pan going on the top shelf making pizza sauce. Full of tomatoes, chopped capsicums, onions, herbs and Kalamata Olives. Smells divine. I will make a batch of pizzas for the freezer later in the week. Shelf below...

Re: PET'S CORNER

( attempting post for the second time as I was logged out whilst posting before) Abby's harness is much more robust, with another section that goes over the head and down the back of the neck. I see how yours works though. Will take a pic, ( or amusing video) next time we have to don the apparatus. ...

Re: Bagpuss

25 degrees is pleasant, Stanley.
40 degrees is not....pool or no pool.
I start to get fed up by about 32 degrees these days.

Re: PET'S CORNER

putting dog harness on goes something like this... I 'arrange' dog harness ( which at best can be described as a series of straps and clasps) on the kitchen bench. Hubby comes along and says it is upside down and rearranges ( now it really IS upside down!) I rearrange to original position, placing d...

Re: PET'S CORNER

Those harnesses are great. I have now bought three of them for ABBY the LABBY. ( pup sized, Labrador sized, then the biggest I could buy as Abby has exceeded all expected Labrador dimensions). I don't recall anything on the packets saying "easy to put on" as we have had some laughs trying to get her...

Re: Bagpuss

Not yet Sue. The hot weather hit, and Christmas, then more hot weather. So BAGPUSS has been put in a shoebox in the cupboard until knitting can recommence. Think I have three paws left to do. I was doing so well and thought it would be finished before Christmas. Never mind. It is impossible to paint...

Re: SPRING 2012

Tie a very long rope around your waist and attach it to the front gate before you head off Panny, so you can be sure of making it home. Hip flask and chocolate stuffed in pockets? Triple knit long johns on?

Wabbit in Wed Wine??
( haven't cooked rabbit for about 20plus years. It seemed a bit hit and miss to me as far as tenderness went. Sometimes I cracked it ( fluke) and sometimes we just chewed quietly and no one said a word....)

Re: SPRING 2012

We have seen the pictures of the big freeze across parts of Europe. Hard for us to grasp those kind of temperatures. We sit here bare legged, wearing shorts and Tshirts...lazing on the couch...back patio doors open to the garden and the lazy breeze that is wafting through...post dinner glass of wine...

No allotments here.

Red Salmon Cakes, mashed spuds, baby peas and Cauliflower/Broccoli Cheese Bake. ( couldn't eat it all...eyes bigger than my belly as usual )
Washed down with a nice Shiraz.

quite right Bradders...enough about sock tops.
You are always up late. Is this your 'quiet time'? I always imagine you sitting there quietly sipping something before bed.

Watched the videos. Gracie looks like lots of fun. (and one of you lasses is better with the camera than tuther one. Got a bit dizzy, E!) The first pic I saw of Gracie, all I could think of was a bit of steel wool with legs, but she has scrubbed up ok. We still haven't weakened to the point of puppy...

I think if you were to measure equidistantly from cobblers, sock tops would be at different levels? :laugh5:

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Wendy, I catch 'River Cottage' whenever I can. (I imagine myself living that kind of lifestyle)
The simple life, and the joy of getting back to basics with food, and knowing where it comes from.
Ahhhh..that is the dream anyway. Don't even have room for a veg patch, though could go a few trugs.

A black marble pastry roller? Difficult to tell as it just looks like a black rod, one foot long. About the nipple thing. I didn't explain myself very well. I meant the level could be used to make sure nipples were level within the freshly levelled vest. Nothing looks worse than a skewiff vest, with...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

CHIPS, Stanley?
( can't remember the last time I ate chips...they are not part of my dietary regime...but I have given up being shocked by your Chip intake...so do enjoy!) Though on second thought, if the burial fund is a bit on the low side after being raided, perhaps ease up on the Chips?
