  1. What's Up in April? - 2019

    Drilling is a nightmare, hopefully it won't last too long - they're refurbishing the building opposite us (our old office building) and sometimes they're drilling nearly all day, it's been driving us crazy. Everywhere seems so much noisier now I had a migraine over the weekend too which didn't really go until Sunday evening. At least it's a short working week!
  2. Sweet child o' Mine - Guns 'n' Roses
  3. Andrea's reading in 2019

    I think this one and Sense and Sensibility are her best books, have a go at Sense, I think you'll like that one too. I don't much like her other books and am not a big Austen fan generally - A Level English probably put paid to that ! I do intend to re-read Persuasion at some point though.
  4. What Are You Watching Now? - 2019

    Is anyone watching Line of Duty? Last week's episode - OMG
  5. What's Up in April? - 2019

    Had a flat tyre on Thursday night which meant I only had the spare tyre on the car for Friday and couldn't travel very far, finally managed to get a new tyre on Saturday, went to a friend's for dinner on Saturday night which was nice despite the lights fusing just as she served the first course! Yesterday went to a country fair and saw some gorgeous baby goats, turned down the offer to bottle feed them, wish I had done it now but it was fun watching everyone else do it, it was a free for all! Not sure about today, looking like it might rain. Hope everyone's enjoying the long weekend.
  6. What's the weather like?

    Similar forecast here, although the rain clouds are already building.
  7. Whisky in the Jar - Thin Lizzy
  8. What's the weather like?

    Amen to that Raven!
  9. Willoyd's Reading 2019

    I worked in Sainsbury's as a teenager and when we unloaded stock we always used to put the larger cardboard boxes near the checkouts for customers to use, in fact quite often I'd be unpacking and someone would come and wait for me to empty the box so they could use it for their shopping. We also had paper carrier bags for customers to buy if they wanted them. This was in the early 1980s.
  10. What's the weather like?

    Weather is glorious so far. I planted some wildflower seeds today, and sat in the garden for a bit but it was too hot!
  11. Many Rivers to Cross - Cher (and others of course)
  12. What's Up in April? - 2019

    Easter's finally nearly here and it looks like being lovely weather for once (last year was a washout!). Been told we can leave work early which is even better. Have a good Easter everyone, and enjoy the long weekend!
  13. Pubs in books

    A famous pub in London, The Cheshire Cheese, has got a mention in the Barbara Erskine book I'm currently reading.
