  1. Late as usual.... here’s to 2020, may it be a good and positive year despite the adversity all around.
  2. Sounds perfectly reasonable to me!

    It’s gorgeous!!!
  4. Boring would be nice for a while. and independence. and no Hard Brexshit
  5. Harrumphfff!!! and this place needs to include Bin Boris as well as Dump Trump. (BoJo? More BloJob if you ask me...)
  6. Like walking out of the house in the morning straight into a web!!!
  7. QI is very educational comedy quiz, originally hosted by Stephen Fry and now by Sandy Toksvig, on BBC2 and also endlessly on Dave. it has an utterly mysterious scoring system where you gain points for saying something interesting but lose them for the screamingly obvious and usually wrong... they’re working through topics based on the alphabet, currently on series Q.... recommended. very silly at times.
  8. That is a glorious apple !! Just put QI on tv, to find one Anuvab Pal as one of the panel... that was a surprise, I am assuming it’s him !

    turned out lovely! bess, i don’t think i’d have the patience! though i’d enjoy the sorting side of it....... i gave in and and got some DK wool in shades from dark teal to purplish with a shiny thread running through... well it was in the sale after all! - to make a summer wrap. still need to finish the emerald green cotton sloppy sweater first. while there is still summer.....
  11. the world really is going to hell in a handcart, isn’t it! climate change, plastic everywhere, Trump and Boris, fracking, BREXIT...... some days i just want to dig a big hole, jump in and backfill it to avoid it all. But there are still nice things, like Tats came to visit at madsMum’s yesterday, so we had a whole day of catching up. and i got some new brush pens and a load of Lego-adjacent dinosaurs from MadBro and Mum. we’re going to have to make the most of the small nice stuff because the big ugly stuff is only getting worse.
  12. Mum loved those, I read them too and enjoyed them, but yes, the kid is a proper wee knowitall!
  13. Which means all of us are vulnerable to the same thing.
  14. Definitely not Moo!!! Am unfriending (sorry!) and blocking, looks like a scam and hacking.
  15. Moo, is that actually you on FB? Only it doesn’t sound like you in the messages....
  16. i LOVED Good Omens. OK, there are a few things missing, but i guess that was inevitable. Pretty much all the best bits are there, there is a clever further resolution at the end and David Tennant and Michael Sheen are BRILLIANT.

    Three socks? Sounds like Morticia Addams’ knitting!!! I love that shaded wool. Keep getting enticed by similar but it usually seems to knit up in stripes which I don’t want so that’s saved my wallet!!! Actually, I could use tentacles... always seem to need a third hand, or more...
  18. asked her for her latest email addy.
  19. i am waiting til MadBro has both of the latter Avengers movies on dvd, then we can watch back to back and pause for loo breaks!
  20. a bit frayed around the edges, but hanging on!
