All Kinds Of Everything...?


"Bye Gum!"





It's still 2018 and the Daffodils in the plant pots are nearly ready to flower.  I know its the mildest December I can ever remember and we do live on the Gulf Stream don't we?  "Bye gum!"  yet again.


"Bye Gum!"  Our young lass did do some knitting and only did knitteth (is that a word?) me a jumper for a Christmas present.  I am well chuffed and the wool only cost SIX EUROS!  

"Bye gum!"

Yes I have found the free movie channel: Talking Pictures.  Yesterday we watched the classic: Hobson's Choice.  That's why I keep saying: "Bye gum".  

Guess who noticed the concrete water cooling towers in the wedding scene outside the church?   They didn't have them in Victorian Salford, did they?

Remember this:

  5. Good one - Bloomin heck, Sean.

    There are houses often up for sale on the peninsula. But no doer uppers that are cheap. They seem to be selling pretty quick too.

    We have been here nearly eighteen years and I am now 55. Hope you have a great 2019. Thanks!

    2. No, I haven't seen it.

      I don't watch many films on TV, but I enjoy going to the 'flicks' now and then.

  10. Daffodils are budding nicely here; can't wait for Spring to spring upon us. Love the colour of your jumper. Congrats to your clever jumper maker for the choice of colour.

  11. The seasons have gone mad Valerie. The Arum lily's are six inches high and plants are budding.

    Blessed are the jumper makers!

    It only took two weeks to knit. I am mighty impressed. Thanks!
