Hi apples, glad to hear you are both well.
Funny how you meet nice people on holidays, we are always given numbers and stuff to keep in touch with people, but truth be told we don't tend to bother.
I think if we did we would be having different types of holidays staying with other people, and not having our time if you know what I mean? We were invited to stay with both sets of people, but we like our own independence and privacy on hols. We are not much of a friend maker, could easily do so if we wanted to, but don't much. We have friends we see very rarely, and it suits us.
Cuddles is a cute cat, I bet he is very distracting if you are trying to wash the car, it will be more about feeding and cuddling the cat than getting on with washing.
I must admit I can't resist fussing animals, it would get in the way of anything I was doing if a cat or dog wanted a cuddle.
I am pondering which rod and reel to buy at the mo, not sure what I am doing. I will learn on my own, and hope I don't come across other fisher folk whilst learning. I would expect some guy could come up and ask what I am using? Have I caught anything? Then they may get sarcastic and say things like 'why not buy a pink rod, maybe buy some pink fish... then I would have to kick him in the tackle and feed him to the pike.
I want complete privacy and quiet when I begin fishing, anyone bugs me and I will be miffed!!!
We don't have any hedgehogs yet, well not seen any. How sweet to have a tug of war with a hedgy...
I am looking forward to seeing hedgehogs again, although the males are such pests to the females, they try to bonk them more than eat. I feel like giving the females some boxing gloves.
The wind was bad the other day, everything that could blow over did, luckily I tied the rose frame to the patio door, or it would have another giant bash in it by now. Nothing broke, no trees fell, we were relieved. The roof is fine, lovely little shed fine...lots to pick up and check over after a storm. I did enjoy watching the trees blow in the wind, its nice to sit inside all warm and watch a storm.
I bet you are always happy to have your grandchildren over for the day, it keeps you laughing and very active I bet.
The wildlife camera has gone back to Aldi, it was rubbish, kept crashing. So we will wait a while before buying another one, I am on the look out for a new Sat Nav now. I like the Garmin models better than the TomTom. The one we have currently is a TomTom, but it was from a time when they were really good. You can program it to say silly things, we make it swear and say absolutely insane stuff, we have had many hours killing ourselves laughing on journeys when it suddenly says something funny. We programmed it to say "Oh no! Hobbits? Avoid the troll bridge!" That is when you are approaching a low bridge. It says "Car dealer! Meet my gun! What was that? You pissed yourself? Oh!" That is when it is near a car dealer, it goes on and on. The funniest thing about it is that the voice 'Simon' pronounces swear words with such force! You have to put an exclamation mark after some words, and he almost shouts them....oh the fun!
But poor Simon is slowly dying from having to shout profanities, so he will be replaced by some really boring woman with a stupid name who will be no fun at all. She is like the office booby who kills fun and you just want to shoot her in the head...before she sends you to sleep with her boring prissy voice and spam conversation.
But I can get lost on long journeys, don't map read very well, so boring will have to do.
Do you still have to keep an eye on your neighbour then? Does he/she do things to your garden or just try and be annoying to you? Its a shame you don't live away from other people, neighbours can be nice, but I think you are like me in that you would prefer not to have any immediate neighbours.
Privacy and seclusion make for a peaceful life most of the time. A farmer down a long lane would do, or houses hundreds of metres apart which are not garden to garden would be great. It all comes at a cost though, maybe one day.
I am starting a new venture in online selling, going into partnership with someone who stocks and sends the items, and I will work as an agent..it will save me having to buy stock, go to the post office or deal with couriers. I only want a part time job, going to have my hobby of fishing soon, as well as other stuff...can't be too busy, well, too busy working that is to not be able to have fun. Not quite a lady of leisure.
We had a dental check up yesterday, and phew! We were good. So we went for a meal out afterwards, its nice when you don't need any work doing. We both have quite good teeth, but every now and again need a filling...I don't fear the filling...just feel disappointed that I ever need one.
I don't want false teeth when I am old, I want my own teeth. Just thinking about it makes me want to brush my teeth again.
Have you got good teeth?
Any plans for the weekend? We haven't yet, but if I win some fishing stuff, we might have to go and collect from Stockport.
