    the truth : we have many birthday at work in April and May and we get a bit ''caked out'' with so many cakes so I always do something savoury. I brought in 60 samosas for the Head office staff which is 24 in total and not even a crumb was left. :-) next year I had better bring in a 100.:001_unsure:

    I did suggest it once CC but got my head almost bitten off, so to keep the peace I just keep quiet about it now as I said he is a bit sensitive about being a bit luggy.
    I think I have read Equal Rites CC. I did have all his earlier stuff once but moving into a smaller house I let them go to the charity shop. His books sure are ecellent I love them.

    Sorry Lee, I missed you!

    Can't remember the last time I read a book, but I love Stephen King. Its sad that his early stuff was written when he was drunk and drugged.

    You remind me of a joke I heard this week NN. A man goes to his doctor and says "I think my wife is going deaf". The doc says "there's one surefire way to find out. Ask her a question from 50 feet away. If she doesn't answer then move 10 feet closer, and again, until she finally hears you".
    So the man goes home and his wife is cooking dinner. He guesses he's about 50 feet away so says "Whats for dinner?" She doesn't answer so he moves 10 feet closer and again says "what's for dinner?" Still no answer so another 10 feet and so on until he is standing in front of her. "What's for dinner?" he says. She replies
    "for the fifth time, its chicken!"

    (Ooo, should've made that salad shouldn't I?!)

    Where is everybody?

    Looks like another sunny and greyish day...I don't mind though because I'm stuck in an office and can't see the outside anyway.

    Got loads of plants to get in when I get home to-day. Spent hours in a lovely garden centre yesterday and the plants are so reasonably priced that you simply have to buy something.:surprised:

    The veg. patch has got to be sorted out to-day. I have two rubarbs to get in as well.

    Well, it's me here again.

    Managed to get some gardening done yesterday. Found a space fro the grape vine and planted up the 3 loganberries. Cleared the veg patch of weeds since I have still not planted anything much on there, I appear to be chasing my tail but an slowly catching up. Today I will get the cabbages and beans in.

    I also need to get Buttercup out and give him a run. He is desperate to get out in the open air and I feel cruel keeping him locked up.

    Let me see how much I can accomplish when I get home.

    Thank you for the mistletoe berriers as well.

    Would have helped liberate a whole bottle of grape-juice but then Buttercup would have had to drive himself home.

    Ma was most impressed wit your garden. She loved those mirrory dangly things. Did you notice, she did not do a runner when she saw Onion.

    Grandad North treated me to one as a early birthday present so I now have a nice new shiny one that works totally differently to the old one so it has been quite a learning curve for me. It has sure kept me busy for the last few of nights getting it all set up and such.

    Lee and Kate, you are both in my neck of the woods then. I'd say come round for dinner but I'm out at my cousins's do getting all religious. :angel::ange:

    The MX5 lot have an offer going to do one of the tracks at Silverstone which I'd like to do but not in my car. I'd be happy to borrow a car for that sort of driving.

    Have a great time at Silverstone.

    Red, hope you find a necklace that just says to you "I'm the one" and what a lovely thing to do to seal a friendship. :heart:

    I did a lap of Silverstone in a double decker bus!
    Yes really. It is a freeby on F1 racedays but very early.
    They did slow down as we went past the pits so we could have a really good look. The rest of the lap was at top speed, for a bus and the lean over was frightening++

    YOu could just buy one necklace between you and share it Red! Wow, a year already - time flies when you're having fun!!

    Hubby had a great day at Silverstone. He likes to take photos and we found some great viewing for him. I was b.o.r.e.d!!! I don't like practice sessions, nothing to cheer for! We walked miles - my left hip and right knee are agony. Its the joints, not the muscles and I feel really old now!

    The facilities at Silverstone are fantastic - even the toilets were clean, had loo paper, soap and paper towels!!!!!! And at least it didn't rain.

    Last time I went to Silverstone we took some A4 sticky back labels for Ladies Toilets and comandeered some of the Gents!
    I noted when they had the last two facility upgrades that more Ladies Toilets were top priority. Wonder if our little ruse made an impact?

    The loos were 100% better than Donnington ever had! Long may it keep the bike racing!!!!!!

    My son went today and had a great day. Has a very red face now from the lovely sunshine! Even enjoyed the display by the Typhoon (a plane like a tornado).

    Food prices were disgusting. One of the providers (who have lots of stands around the place) were charging £5.80 for a burger, and for a little bottle of coke they wanted £4.80. The stand next door charged £3.70 for the burger and £1.80 for the coke. Talk about captive audience.

    At F1 car racing the food prices were always controlled at Silverstone.
    Wonder if that has changed. It's quite a while since I've been.

    They usually are controlled at that sort of event, so don't know how they got away with the pop price. The burger was described as 'luxury' with 'premium beef'. Didn't look that different to me, but I wish I'd tried one now just to see if it was better!!!

    Kate I took Alabama chili that i made (one of NN recipes) for me and the boys this time as we were disgusted with the price for one and the food is absolutely rubbish and like you said you think you have found a decent burger and thats rubbish to!!!!! so we went prepared this time the only thing we did buy inside was the noodles they were nice.

    That's the one advantage to camping I suppose. My son was organised and took some baguettes. He LOVES the burgers you get at the racing (no accounting for taste!) but he only had one this time.

    Hullo everyone
    just popping by to say hi. have not been here much as our dear pussy cat Thomas has needed lots of extra care of late.
    He was recently diagnosed with diabetes and I had to learn to give him insulin injection twice daily. I have managed quite well with that too I might add.
    Then since last Friday he has been at the vet on a drip.

    We have been popping back and forward 3 times a day to give him cuddles and feed him as he is eating well but kidneys are an issue now too so they trying to get things levelled out there. Fortunatley the vet is just around the corner from the end of our street.

    Its like having a small child to worry about. It has been an emotional rollercoaster over the weekend. I know we have to say goodbye to him some time but it's still so hard. He would be turning 19 in September, what a fighter he is and such a great little companion for me since I can no longer work.

    This morning the vet said he is not yet ready to give up on a cat with such a strong fighting spirit and as he is continuing to eat they say its still worth trying to sort him out.

    So we wait and see, as long as he is eating well and not in pain. :cat:

    love to you all and I will be back soon
    cheers
    Julie:bigsmile:

    I know just what an emotional roller coaster you're on TM. It sounds like you have a really good vet there, and that he will support and advise you along the way. I'm sure if he thought Thomas was in pain he'd let you know. He's a real fighter - must get that from you! Good luck and I hope he is home with you again soon. xx
