(There WAS ) A moose loose aboot this hoose!


But finally after 24+ hours the poor thing is outside, mortally wounded, not by the incompetent cat but, by my foot. It was an accident, I turned to see Lucy cat had finally got it, it moved just I put my foot to the floor to move my swivel chair - wrong time, wrong place.......RIP wood mouse. I truly am sorry it's dead, hate killing anything, even furry vermin with lovely big eyes and ears. Still, that's life.

Valentines Swap gifts


Many thanks to My Valentines' swap partner, Pene up in Ayrshire for my lovely Valentine swap gifts as pictured. They came beautifully wrapped in a 'kidstone-sque' wrapping paper (apologies if it was the genuine article Pene, LOL!). Unfortunately, I was so carried away I didn't take a pic when they were wrapped! I must admit a couple of relatives made a big dent in my loveheart sweets but, I do have a lovely tin which, I've decided to use for my sewing machine bobbins! The teacup and saucer pincushion is in my living room windowsill, haven't got the 'heart' to stick pins in it.........daft so-and so aren't I? The metal heart on a peg I'm going to stick some magnetic tape on the back of the peg and put it on my fridge to hold reminders to get stuff out of the freezer or get some groceries and the like. Such lovely gifts and useful too! Thanks Pene! xxx

Not having a brilliant time this last few weeks!!


First it was the phone and broadband connection, not my fault, TWICE in less than 3 weeks! Then my sisters' lovely old greyhound, Barney got broadsided by an over enthusiastic staffy bitch- resulting in his right rear leg getting broken. It was pinned but, after 24hours, the dog was clearly in agony. So I helped my sis and accompanied them back to the vets in Litchfield, yes a good 3/4 of an hours journey with one very unhappy dog. Barney is so laid back but, now we heard his full vocal range, poor boy. The dressings were changed and we set off back home. Sis dropped me home and then about half and hour later, the phone rang, Sis said the poor dog was bleeding profusely and we had to take him back. It was decided that he needed to have the pinning removed and a plate instead. this was done whilst we whiled away the time at my Nephews' home in Rugeley, about 10 miles from the vets. We picked him up about 6pm and touch wood, there have been no more problems. He will be having a check up tomorrow. Then today, my money has not arrived in my bank account and now will not arrive until monday.....try telling that to folk who are expecting to be paid today! Well, the sun is shining, better make the most of it as, we are expecting wintery showers and cold weather tomorrow! Maybe the next post will be more jolly!

Back again!


I've just had almost 8 days without landline and broadband for the 2nd time in about 3weeks. The problem? BT 'modernising' one of the greenbox thingys in the village on both accounts. I'm assured that the problem is well and truly fixed.....watch this space!

I meant, 'Off line'!


I did go back and edit it but, it still said oof line! Not my dialect at all LOL!

been off line...........


Sorry, taking ages to catch up on your posts, been off line for 5 days, due to a BT green box being 'modernised'. It was a bit quiet! Going 'cold turkey' without phone and computer! Which begs the question, 'What did I do before I had a computer'?????
