Archie came back from shopping he brought me a large bunch of bananas and some large grapes from Chile, they do have pips in them though. He was jubilant, they had a chutney tasting session at the nearby pub. It was a great success. As he said I shall probably be making chutney all over Christmas.... Sign in to see full entry.

Five old neighbours out of seven have started to give me a present at Christmas. Five out of five new neighbours do not, but they will receive a smaller gift. What I hate is wrapping the stuff. Each year my brother will show me the correct way to do this and make a really neat job, but he has a... Sign in to see full entry.

Archie said 'Shall we go and get some Horse manure?' It looked like it was going to rain. 'No' I replied. It looks like rain we had better prune the Weeping Ash tree. You know we cannot do it when the sun shines because it is low in the sky and dazzles.' 'Can't sell the holly.' he said. 'We can't... Sign in to see full entry.

Had a letter from the hospital today just to affirm that there was nothing in my head that was harmful. One should feel joy, but as you know life is not like that. When a little worry is solved another seems to take its place. I do go to the extremes sometimes to alleviate stress. I suppose we all... Sign in to see full entry.

Rather ironically I received a phone call yesterday evening It was on my answer phone. It sounded like a young woman, but wisely she had withheld her phone number. It was not very clear, but she sounded rather worried. 'My boiler will not cut off and I am worried can you send an engineer to fix the... Sign in to see full entry.

This morning a phone call from goodness knows where, informed me that the engineer could not come until Monday. Fortunately I have several small electric heaters, but it suppose to go down to minus 7... Sign in to see full entry.

As you may know I don't do politics Whatever happens is usually forgotten within twenty years. Although I did feel a bit sorry for Mrs May and it is always wise to say what should have been done after the event. Tardigrade. Maybe I should cool down my trade? Yes introduce the Tardigrade....

I thought folk liked the berries on holly. Evidently most do not care, A good thing because my two holly trees are rather devoid of them this year. Archie cut six sackfuls and appeared to be satisfied for the moment. He did say that the pickled onions were going like hot dogs. It gives me the tummy... Sign in to see full entry.

You won't believe this. I said to Arthur, these Christmas cards are a bit dull. they came in a charity pack. I said I'll get some more this morning when I go shopping. Of course I forgot. 'I'll get some next week.' I said; 'Too late,' Arthur replied. Archie pulled up outside.'Run me up to the Post... Sign in to see full entry.

I was really surprised I have been on here since 2009 If I had to hazard a guess I would have said 6 years. Just shows how unreliable I would be as a witness. Had a bit of a shock a few moments ago the travellers who took Archie's holly called and he woman gave me a box of biscuits. She enquired if... Sign in to see full entry.
