Morning to all. More PJ blogging here-ther seems no reason to hurry up and get dressed. I cut the grass on the estate by the dying rays of yesterday's sun and no visitors are expected. So slovenliness is the way it might stay for a while I'm afraid. If the postman needs me to sign for a package, he might have to avert his gaze. I'm sure he's seen worse. Having said that, pyjama days (which didn't exist when we were young) do reek of reckless indulgence to be enjoyed as often as treacle sponge and custard (with extra, heated syrup in a small jug). And having eaten a cornish pasty, chips and mushy peas as a main course.
[Having re-read that, I'm thinking that if that's my idea of decadence, I am a man of simple, even juvenile tastes. Bloggers will have their own to suggest I am sure]
And that has made me rather hungry I'm afraid so Nigel's taste adventure today is Jerk Venison which sounds like my kind of thing. And I can eat Matt's helping too.
And ROBIN HOOD oldies today please as the Robin Hood festival is hauling in the visitors at Sherwood Forest this week. Splendid pics of jousting, archery and merrie children (as well as men) abound so let's add some tunes to go with them.
Have a well-dressed and occasionally decadent Thursday, see you after 5

    #118 Billie - well remembered! Summer flowering bulbs? Lots of leafyleafyleafage! All shapes and sizes. Put them in pots that look the same as my Annuals pots so must remember not to empty them out come winter - might get some surprises next year. How are yours?

    :^)

    I've been meaning to ask you how your Summer Flowering Bulbs are doing ............

    Thanks for the hug LadyB!

    Erica and others - KandKsMummy has been blogging for some time but has just had a break for a while so it's more of a welcome back. Not that it really matters ... it's a kindness to say hello however long folks have been part of all this ..
    :^)

    And Florence - yes thank you. It's wonderful. The nanna thing. M'girl seems to be in fine fettle once more and has started working a little, which means I get to babysit. So pleased the twins are thriving, must be lovely to have two. I have pics on Fbook if you care to respond to my friend request [initials KD] ..

    ..expect the new blog will be up by the time I post this

    Good Morning All

    A quick post, as we are about to sit down for Mum's 80th birthday breakfast...

    :o))

    Nothing particularly special, but we have the whole weekend to celebrate, so we need to pace ourselves!

    Just wanted to wish Lady_B happy holidays - hope you return refreshed, and of course with a few photos to share!

    Mildred, I will suggest a few bloggers for you to "friend" on FB when I get a chance to get on there later.

    Wonder if the new blog will arrive while I'm posting this..

    ~X~

    Good morning all.
    Before I forget, happy hols L_B. Hope you have a wonderful time, and I look forward to hearing all bout it in a couple of weeks.
    Holidays is a bit of a touchy subject in the Mildred household!
    I don't know anyone's real name to befriend them on FB so can't see p_c's holiday photos, but I'm sure they are as wonderful as Erica has described.

    Non-working day but I have some 'consultancy' work to continue (it seems never ending for not much remuneration) and I'm meeting an ex-colleague (now friend) for lunch. And I'll have to get the tweet-box oiled in readiness for singing along to 'that song' for the first time in what seems like weeks. :)

    'Morning everyone

    Katy, I hope you're enjoying being nana and also hope your daughter has made a full recovery... my twins are getting really bonny.

    Lady Bird, I love the glassy appearance and the colour of the water in the bottom right hand corner of the pic I took last night, which you may have to scroll down to see.

    How romantic for your friends, a stroll along the beach at sunset with a proposal. It's lovely walking along there in moonlight too, especially on a night when the moon is over the water.

    I think this might be the rock you are meaning.... children love to play on it, families picnic on it and I saw a young couple standing on the top the other day with their arms around each other... a bit young to have been your friends though!!
