  • Morning all.

    Actually, there's only one clock in this house that we have to remember to change, the one in the kitchen. The rest are all radio controlled (or on the computer, which sometimes seems to be controlled by not much more than a tiny person running around inside a wheel).

    Bluish sky, lots of hazy cloud, perishing cold (decent frost in the fields), hunters out and about.

    Lots to get on with today, so better get a move on.

    Catch you all later. Have a great day.

    • Well I had 3 clocks to change this morning. I've done 2 but the third has fallen behind the cooker. Drat!! Just got to remember to change the car clock when I go out. I made marmalade yesterday but never got round to lemon curd so hopefully I'll get round to that today although at the moment the weather is looking much better and I think I can hear the allotment calling.

        Used to be, and now I'm retired I can't get out of the habit. I actually prefer to be up early before the rest of the world, I enjoy the quiet and solitude. Not a people person, me.

        I get backache if I stay in bed too, Flo. Another reason to be up and doing.

        • Good morning all.
          A nice sunny morning but its cold and breezy,
          It's a bank holiday here but nothing happening due to lockdown.
          Probably a gardening and pottering day.
          Have a good day all.

          And when your back stops aching,
          And your hands begin to harden.
          You will find yourself a partner,
          In the glory of the garden.

              • Evening all, was up at usual time, I've not adjusted as fast as the clocks, went to meet our daughter and family along with their new puppy for a windy walk along the beach near Carnoustie, got our heads ruffled but at least it's dry. Still got a few jobs in the garden, but we need it to stay dry to get all of them done, the ground is very wet just now so I need to stay off the grass.....................and that's my excuse for not cutting the grass lol.
                If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                • Evening all.

                  My plan this morning was to go to allotment from 11.00am to 12 and then to go fishing until 2.00pm I only spent 1/2 an hour at allotment (even though I got quite a bit done) and fished until 1.30pm as I didn't want to leave OH too long.(and I was getting blown to bits)

                  I was amazed at the amount of cars about and there was roughly 20 parked up near to the water I fish. Luckily as a fishing club member we are given the code for the lock on the main gates and I was able to get my car close to the reservoir I fish.

                  Nothing doing with the fishing but it was exhilerating to say the least with waves 4 foot high on the water.Lots of people out walking around even though it was blowing a hooligan. I suppose, like me they were just getting stir crazy and the wind blew away the cobwebs.

                  • Good evening all.
                    It was a very breezy day so decided to do the laundry,
                    Got it all out and dried in record time thanks to the strong wind..
                    Did a bit of weeding and deadheading, my dahlias are still flowering.
                    Not a very exciting day but at least the sun was shining.
                    Have a good night all and stay safe.

                    And when your back stops aching,
                    And your hands begin to harden.
                    You will find yourself a partner,

                    • Not an exciting day here either. I never got the lemon curd made but never mind there's plenty marmalade. I ended up doing mainly the dreaded housework...well some. I remember, as a child, my grandma who, at the time, was younger than I am now telling me that it was a waste of time as you still had to do it again a few weeks later.
                      Just as well my husband is even messier and as easy going as I am.

                          • Morning, dry and still at the moment, if it stays like this we might go for a bit of a walk, birds have been fed, so need to feed me now, take care and make the most of the day.
                            If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                              What type of lettuce do you plant at this time of the year please? Are they seed or plugs? Do they withstand frost? I really fancy a Winter supply of lettuce.
                              Very grey and raining here this morning. I've got to go buy a new smartphone for an elderly relative and set it up for her. Does anyone know if there is a completely waterproof one that also bounces?

                              • ^The CIA seem to have phones like that if the TV programmes are anything to go by. But they look massive and heavy because of the case. I've just looked up rugged, waterproof phones in Google. I don't know what your budget is but they're not cheap...

                                Anyway, morning all. Bit late, Snadger, but I hope everything went well with the scan.

                                Bright blue but a chilly gale-force wind out there again. I'm staying indoors, as are the dogs and cats.

                                Plenty to keep me busy, as per. Catch you all later. Have a good one meanwhile. Stay safe.
