  1. Congrats Mrs Phil!! Of course I knew you were MBE material years ago when Phil passed on your method for fool proof poached eggs perfect every time. I have been using it ever since ?. Well done I'm glad your hard work has been recognised and thanks for letting us know Phil.
  2. Took my granddaughter to see Santa yesterday (the real one obviously) at the garden centre. £12 and £3 for every adult accompanying her!!!
  3. I do find it quite funny when my daughter goes upstairs or into the garden and her 6 year old quick as a flash says "Alexa add Smarties to the shopping list"
  4. This day last year it was the lights switch on in town. It was a momentous occasion. Antipope Felix II would have loved it ?
  5. Me too. I thought my car indicator was silent until now. Went to go round a roundabout and it went CLICK CLACK, CLICK CLACK. Birdsong was another thing, how long had it been since I heard birds singing? And then left home to get in the car when it was raining.......sound of rainfall was literally thunderous. Had to turn it off at work though. Receptionists are a bunch of b'*%dy fishwives ?
  6. One of my favourites is cabbage..........................CABG (coronary artery bypass graft)
  7. I know this is slightly different but maybe worth mentioning. I had postnatal depression quite badly after my firstborn undiagnosed until ten months later when my husband called an out of hours doc who came to the house one night when I reached a crisis point. I did start to suffer similarly after births of second and third children but importantly I did recognise the symptoms very quickly and sought help so hopefully that does happen with other types of mental health problems.
  8. Your call is important to us and we will answer it when one of our operators becomes available ?
  9. Can't remember my first few cars (old age!) but I remember being totally in love with my Renault 17 with the gear stick on the steering column. Wish I still had my dad's Ford Prefect though. The rear window had a little roller blind, the wipers were absolute rubbish and the indicators were little arms on the side of the car which were meant to pop out but invariably didn't until we banged on the inside to force them ?. Bet that would be worth a shilling or two now.
  10. Daughter's latest exchange with year 9 lovely Daughter: Can you please take your coat off Clarke Clarke: Man's cold innit Daughter: I suggest mans takes his coat off or mans will be in detention..........innit Clarke: [removing coat] Harsh fam!!
  11. Never won anything big but left work in 1984 to go on maternity leave and entered a draw in D H Evans in Oxford St on the way home. A few weeks later I was at home with newborn son and received the winning hamper which was full of luxury items, body sprays, bath stuff, perfume, manicure set, silk scarf, leather purse, etc. It wasn't much in the grand scheme but the timing was perfect and taught me never to visit a new mum with baby grows and Johnsons powder. I always take mum some luxuries instead. Have done Euromillions and Thunderball tonight though so I'll let you know tomorrow which island I've bought so you can all book flights ?
  12. Will do. Been a flipping customer for donkeys years paying an extortionate fee for nothing but sky sports
  13. Grass in the garden caught fire this week. It melted the tool chest with mower, strimmer and garden chair cushions inside which also burned, buckled the living room window and upstairs bedroom window, melted the guttering and the Sky dish and but for the quick response of my neighbour (I was at work) would probably have caught the curtains in the open bedroom window and been much worse. Neighbour called the fire brigade who were great. They put the blame squarely on the glass table and said they are attending grass fires all over the county ten or more times a day now. Just thought I would mention it so no one else has the same problem. Could have been worse, no one was hurt, son's brand new car was not on the drive and it's off season for football so not too many 20 somethings crying into their beer over the Sky dish ?. Bl00dy Sky are charging a £65 call out charge to come and look at the damage though!
  14. [Hangs on to Derwent's every last word in desperation]
  15. Don't judge me........I used a hose ?........daughter's wheelie bin had something in which had attracted flies and hence maggots. Had to give it a quick surreptitious clean all the while feeling bad about wasting precious water. However as I speak much more cloud cover than blue sky here in the SE tonight so you never know.
  16. Not sure where my loyalties lie then ?. Funny that me and Bucksyed are both in Bucks though.
  17. ...............and don't let me catch you here come next snowfall
  18. If you're complaining about the heat and you complained about the snow then there's one hell of a slap coming your way
  19. We haven't gone that far yet with the staff books but all the kids books and toys have gone from the waiting room for the same reason sadly.
  20. Where I work we have 45-50 staff. Those of us who read always bring in the good ones and leave them in the staff room for others to take and recycle. Luckily many of us are crime readers so there's always a good selection. I have Amazon Prime which offers a good selection of free downloads every month and have joined a few libraries across the UK for e-books. If you join more than just your local library you get more chance of getting the most popular books. They are easy to download and you get 21 days to read a book all for free. I got the latest Jo Nesbo from the library while it was still in hardback on the shelves in the supermarkets!
  21. I've read all the Harry Hole books and never been disappointed. Outside of the Hole series The Son is a great book
  22. BT repair man "The lines all fixed now.. er.. do you mind if I sit in the van on your drive and er.. watch the football?" ? Crack on son
  23. I'll probably get struck down by lightning but it amused me. My son works in one of the fashion retail outlet centres. He worked in Kate Spade for a while a year ago and now works in Jimmy Choo. He said to his boss "Kate Spade's dead" George replied "Yeah I think it's quiet everywhere mate"; "No George, Kate Spade the woman is deceased"
