Hairdo conversations

Single sided hairdo telephone conversation heard on a train:

Helen has gone back to a bob with a fringe – she’s really blonde
I’m growing mine back
You do look young but I don’t think that is a bad thing.…

The kettle boils, hopefully

The kettle boils, hopefully. I meant to say that I hope the kettle will boil rather than an observation as to the mental state of the kettle as it is boiling.

The tea brews; you know what I’m saying

Clocks go back

nice lie in

Clocks went back this morning. Yay. A relaxed start to the day although somewhat tempered by the fact that at 9.30am Anne discovered that John’s hockey meet was at 9.30am. He got dressed, ate a bacon sandwich

Only 20 mins swim today. Didn’t have my contact lenses in and saw the attendants move the black bins that they put the lane markers in in place. They usually do this

Its Christmas Everyone

Its so nearly Christmas,
I just can’t wait,
The present pile under the tree is growing,
There’s one for you and one for me,
Time flies by, its Christmas eve already,
Just one more sleep until…

tulips from Amsterdam

These literally are tulips from Amsterdam. Would I lie to you? It is also spring again. I won’t be taking any back to my true love though. We already have some in the ground at home though they don’t appear …

I try and eat without noise,
the food is good.

The Bird in Hand, Twyford.

& The Pylons head for Glasto

Sitting here listening to some saxophone practice. The steady timekeeping tap of the right foot. The conservatory doors are open into the garden. It is a beautiful day out there. The birds are happy.

phone knackered so today’s image is chromebook selfie

Full of cold this morning. Probably a good job we’ve decided to give ourselves the day off. Weather is totally pants and the best two days look like being Monday and Wednesday

Pleasant start to the day having breakfast with Anne. We had a reasonably nice suite at the Holiday Inn. She has now popped off to the shops and to “do” Betty’s Tea Room again and I am …

Only one thing left on the jobslist

Only one line item left on the jobslist. Hanging a picture in the kitchen. Then we can nip to Waitrose for a few choice morsels to accompany tonight’s pulled pork. A bottle of red wine stands patiently on the worktop.…

The function room is back!

It’s been a while.

So we lost the function room.
