That’s one way to cope with spending time on the West Coast mainline.
As for appalling alliteration…
I am hot and busy.
Nearly reached the end of the day.
There are other amusing pictures in the M**l if you’re looking for one Bill. I think I’ve actually seen the one with the tartan carpet for real, but it wouldn’t put me off buying the house, given that I bought a house that looked like it was decorated by a psychopath who loved Laura Ashley.
Before I lead you a merry dance,
Where do you stand on assonance?
“Where do you stand on assonance?”
hmmm, let you know once i’ve googled it,
and poured the tea…
Ha! In honour of my last post* & Dame Julie, we’re gonna watch Educating Rita tonight, as it’s available on demand. I have the dvd but that’s somewhere in Barcelona…
*She says of assonance, “It means getting the rhyme wrong.”
looks like my commentson assonance are staying in the spam bin, best place for’em,
tho i did like my new avatar..
I too am hot and busy. Washing, washing. Would have had a lovely hol but got taken ill on day 3, still swam though but no boat trips, dicky tum. Also, women not allowed into the monastery on Caldey Island yet they charge the same for the boat trip there as they charge men. Women are allowed into the shop where they sell predominantly chocolate and perfume so women’s money is good enough, obvs, just not them as people. Sod off, monks, I say. That’s me not going to heaven, then. 😉
Oops, sorry, evening All.
“women not allowed into the monastery on Caldey Island ”
sounds illegal to me, clearly sex discrimination
Ah, i forgot, it’s ok if ‘religion’ is the reason.
I’m thinking the monks can’t keep their pants on, Emms. 😉
Ooh, I’m now wondering if monks even wear pants ….
Can’t have laydees make the nice monks think impure thoughts…
caldey island monks,
““Consider: a vegetarian brotherhood which takes away your liberty, your right to own anything, to marry or even mix with members of the opposite sex, to have a choice in anything, to go anywhere or even to speak,” said Mr Lyons.
“And which then subjects you to unremitting hard labour, weird clothes and isolation for the rest of your life.”
hmm, why would you want to meet people like that?
Good points well made, Emms and Justa. Just cheesed me off that if I hadn’t known beforehand/been a bit dicky I might have paid to go over there. I’ve been to Tenby loads of times though and can safely say the monks and I have never interested each other. 😉
The Mirror and the M**l are now calling it a “killer heatwave”. So, cold towels at the ready (nothing to do with the monks, honest!), fan heater on cold in the bedroom, curtains kept closed (glass fronted house, great in the winter sunshine ….), I am ready.
Am booking my holiday for this coming week,
Wed. night, double room, nice looking hotel, plenty of photos, good reviews,
Isle of Wight, £8, which includes breakfast 🙂
Blimey, Emms, that’s the cost of a breakfast where we stayed on Friday night. Wouldn’t stay there again, 8.7 on Trip Advisor/Booking.com (can’t remember which now) but I wouldn’t have given it 6 except that the staff were v v nice, the walls were so thin could hear what they were saying next door, every time anyone went into/left a room on the same landing as us, etc. Hope you’re having a lovely hols, did you find somewhere to leave your bike etc while you went for a swim?
figured i might as well stay there the next night too, but they wan’t £110 for Thursday, so it can’t be a doss house,
( not that i’ll be paying that much )
no, ‘fraid not, i tried left luggage at the station, but there’s no such thing, and i couldn’t leave the bags on the bike unattended, the bike , locked, is fine, but with phone, wallet and keys in the bike bags, it was too risky,
am planning to swim locally tomorrow, while the heatwave lasts.
Should be ok if you do find somewhere you stay more than a day, Emms.
Should be out tonight but I was still a bit dicky so am about to watch the thing on BBC2 about how the flip May got to be PM, supposed to be accurate, not sure on whose say-so.
On some silly Beeb2 nonsense, a real Tory MP says, “So, we went to Boris’s house, where he lives with his family.” Je je…
Watching it, Xen, seems to be a lot of cooperation from the real people involved but I still can’t help thinking all their pants are on fire …. 😉
I tink she got the job ‘cos she is strong and stable?
“So if you’ve got your cozzie…erm, maybe not.” 😆
Stronger than Gove & more stable than Boris? Not hard, really, eh…
“The most dishonest electorate in history” – out of their own mouths! And this shower is in charge. We’re doomed ….
Why is May being played by Grayson Perry?
I figured The Handmaid’s Tale would be less gloomy than Tory scrapping.
Sounds like I was right.
Grayson would (1) have a better necklace and (2) have woven or potted a better cabinet, shirley? 😉
Prob right, Justa. Was funny if frightening:
“332 tory MPs; insincere, duplicitous bastards”. A quote from them about them.
(I have a thing, if I’ve really enjoyed a book, I can’t watch the fillum/TV adaptation, I know those people.)
Anyhooses, I have built a 2 tier draining rack whilst wincing.
