So, who wants to help ... to cower in the cellar?


#9962

Very effective bait, that, dere.


#9963

And a free range hen just rubbed in rape seed oil and seasoned then roast so it is golden brown and crispy skin

Served with boiled baby spuds and peas and sweetcorn with proper gravy to be mopped up with fresh well buttered bread

The chatelaine has had the crusts so we only get the bread!


#9964

Crust Smugglers of the Cellar…

actually that sounds faintly obscene


#9965

Ponders possible causes for confusion between crusts and budgies. Confesses self baffled.


#9966

TFM

I hope you are well battened down
The forecast is vile


#9967

Even the south of England has a yellow warning of high winds for Tuesday.


#9968

It doesn’t look very pleasant, certainly, but we’ve had a lot worse (I hope). Storm force 10 predicted for tomorrow, sea state high.

I’ve just seen the new cellar. Pity in some ways, it could have been a good idea to cower until this storm has passed.


#9969

Gosh.

I may need a jumper.


#9970

But then wot would I do wiv all this gin?


#9971

Don’t worry, Hedgers–I’ll take good care of it…


#9972

We are in for violent storm 11 according to the shipping forecast

And spring tides


#9973

Not a good combination. Stay safe, Twellsy.


#9974

We are 110m above msl so the sea is not so much of a worry

We do get electric shortages with storms as we are near a power station and substation

Still our generator is working and we have fuel

And I have a well stocked fridge and all sorts of stuff in the freezer and larder

Remote living means that you have to be able to get by on what you have


#9975

Hence the local delicacy, haunch of leopard wiv nettles.


#9976

Does being so close mean you can go & get some if it stops coming in automatically ?


#9977

They carry it home in buckets thereabouts, I believe.


#9978

Not forgetting to wear good-quality wellies so that it doesn’t escape.

Orf to me nest.


#9979

Tseep well, Sparrer.

I am almost certain I stumbled across this advice in an entirely different context but I can’t quite call it to mind, Bird bach…


#9980

Got up in the middle of the night to feed the 3d printer.

Blerg.

yardarm

Prolly the last yardarm for this cellar, if we have a go at polishing off the thread today…


#9981

I expect it needs a good polishing after 9 months of heavy use but why do we have to polish it? Don’t we have staff for that kind of thing?
