Extremely sorry to hear that, joe. Lots of fluids, now [knowin’ winkity].
Fires up Noo Candle
Buckets of Gunpowder gin and cases of Proper Job en route to Joe
I can do a lot from my broomstick
Beer safely strapped to the stick and buckets suspended below
Leopard curled up in the bristles and my scarlet cloak flapping behind me with stripey stockings and black cat boots hanging on for dear life I make a striking figure flying to tend the sick
A friend writes:
Been given some samples of a face cream called Immortelle Jeunesse. I feel like even by the standards of face cream, that’s quite a bold claim.
You really didn’t need to do all the research, Joe: I could have told you that.
(Hope it gets better soon.)
Sorry you’re poorly, Joe. Do please get better soon!
Thanks all! ‘Tis a bit af of a bugger, right enough.
I particularly appreciate its egalitarian approach, moving around so that no part of the body misses out on the fun.
A curious side effect is that my voice has dropped considerably in pitch. Low D used be a stretch - over the last couple of days I’ve been hitting down to Bb! Can’t quite manage A…
For those not au fait with vocals ranges, the D in question is the sung pitch in this, and the Bb the lowest organ note:
Yet another NALL (we seem to have had rather a lot of them, sadly), but I am greatly impressed by the Bb. Terribly manly
And you’ve transported me straight back to 1983, when I had a music student in the next room. Eeek!
Especially, as those Cellarites who’ve met me could confirm, given my usual spoken register is about the same as Harry or Tom. Currently, I could moonlight voicing Hollywood trailers! (Bet that effect won’t last, though…)
Ulster fries have been eaten
I do like a good fry
I thought that you were still on Macaroni Cheese, Twellsy…
Bloody breezy here this evening.
Mary’s sister’s visiting?
I had to stomp up the road fer Supplies & had a long conversation with 2 of the staff about what we are cooking this week. Methods & recipes were exchanged.
The reduced items had ready to eat mashed potato reduced to 30p, so I bought it, & will freeze some & ‘improve’ it when defrosted.
Just before I got to the till, one of them mentioned that they had reduced Doom Bar, Aspalls Cider & Crabbies Ginger Beer.
Great, but I couldn’t carry the 2 shopping bags so, once again, I borrowed the trolley…
Way to go…
I also bought line-caught cod fillet reduced to £2 from £5-85, so that is Ash Wednesday sorted.
I was trying to explain Shrove Tuesday to the lovely young assistant in Tesco, but had more success with Pancake Day.
I couldn’t face trying to explain Ash Wednesday, as her older colleague told me that the old ways are dying out…
Ash Wednesday is also Valentine’s Day.
The Bearnaise Butter for the steak Meal Deal izzin an heart shape…
Mac cheese was ginormous and what I would make 10-12 generous portions was scoffed down by 3 guests to leave just enough for 2 on Sunday evening
So a fry last night was an east quick meal
Tonight is pancakes with something in em
Home made crispy pancakes sort of thing
Rely on your nose wee birdie
Bacon butties are on offer so I am wafting the whiff of frying bacon around to help you
How are you today Joe?
Getting there! I think the worst is over - just a bit sniffly and dog tired. I’ve survived worse…
