Good morning to all, stunning sunrise in London town. Red sky in the morning etc and gales aplenty to challenge lots of us. I'm almost tempted to take a day trip to the east coast to see the tidal surge but this tomfoolery will not be tolerated. I've always been attracted to bad weather and have a hankering to be one of those storm-chasers that get as close as they can to tornados, then run away. Now that is a sensible way of spending your non-existant retirement.
So assuming I'm tied to this desk all day and not heading out east, lets dazzle each other with ADVENT CALENDAR oldies. I had a miserable looking stone angel/gargoyle in mine today but then it is an arty one of St Marks in Venice. I don't want a chocolate filled Strictly Advent Calendar thank you very much where Bruce or Bruno stare out of the doors, or the sparkly Downton calendar with aristo-themed fun for every day. The kids scoff at the very idea of having an advent calendar without a sample of rubbish chocolate behind every door but I am defiant. More power to my gargoyle and other bits of exciting stonework that lay in wait through December. Advent calendar songs please!
Have a useful and well-balanced Thursday, see you after 5

    #117 PJ - glad you got to see your Mum
    :^)

    Joining in the Nelson Mandela praise and plaudits .. however am slightly disturbed by some of the negative stuff on my fb timeline... why??

    We came second in the quiz tonight. We'd been promised a 'scratch and sniff' round which didn't materialise. That might have made the difference. Feeling a tad short-changed but don't want to get too sniffy about it. Heehee.

    Love 'Joybringer' - thanks Ella.

    #123 - Wind power seems to be a boy thing. As a lone female in a pack of Outnumbered boys I am often on the receiving end of it. Likewise, there never seems to be such a concept as 'too much information'.....

    Sometimes I feel like I'm wind powered.

    #107 - Chris Tingle - are the tablets to prevent loss of power or wind? ;-)
