  1. Beautiful! Thanks.
  2. Did you mean ‘peel’ perchance? LOL.
  3. With great difficulty. I ended up with not very much carrot but lots of peelings!
  4. I excel at growing wonky veg. Think I’ve surpassed myself this time though!
  5. YnysMon


    Well, yes. hullabaloos indeed! A species of inconsiderate hirers known from the 1930’s onwards. (Check out Arthur Ransom’s ‘Coot Club’.)
  6. A warm welcome from me too. Helen
  7. Well, at least it shows that they are investing in improvements. Isn’t that a good thing?
  8. Steady on chaps! (Flippin’ ek...for a Welsh person to say that is just weird...). Just behave!
  9. Umm...Folies Bergere? Just noticed that one on Timbo’s phone photo. LOL
  10. ‘ hitched up his tights’ She’s sure about that one, is she?
  11. Jean, how could you! You’ll set him off again!
  12. Typing ‘ying tong’ with predictive text takes a bit of doing!
  13. Brilliant...though you’ve gone a bit Charlotte Bronte with your ‘Dear readers ‘. All together now... Ying tong, ying tong, ying tong... 😀 (iddle i po) More, more! (pretty please!)
  14. Hi Polly. We are probably wimps, but I find that trying to quant against a stiff breeze ain’t fun!
  15. What a pain! Our insurance is probably more expensive, but at least they are easy to contact.
  16. Do let us know how you got on. Hope you didn’t have a chilly night without a canopy!
  17. Near the mouth of Candle Dyke? (Or, as Arthur Ransom called it, ‘Kendal Dyke’.) The reason I think it’s there...we spent a long time on that stretch a couple of year back trying to tack up it. Got through eventually!
  18. There’s a fine balance we’ve yet to reach between people being exploited and people exploiting the system.
  19. That’s worse than the longest shift I’ve ever done, 8am to 8pm back in the days (early 80s) when we had British Rail. Mind you, the Union had negotiated double time (or something like that...memory is slightly hazy) which made doing ‘overtime’ well worth it. My Mum also worked for BR, as did her father. He said some of his colleagues who worked the system killed the golden egg. I’m not a fan of privatisation, but I can see how it happened. More a symptom of weak management though.
