  1. evening gang ,not been posting much lately as busy with elderly mother in law .but been viewing the charts and reading the posts .

    looking at current charts i cant see any real wintry  cold weather ,but all this could change very quickly ,so with 180 plus ecm charts360 gfs charts to come this winter we have plenty to talk about ,heres hoping :yahoo:

      totally cocked up this post , i think i need a quick BAP and a THatchers cheers all .

  2. Got man flu  so relaxing in a nice chair with the dog by my side .

    Sorting out well over 400 weather magazines and their weather logs ,so if we can't get the white stuff at least I can read about it .

    Don't really fancy a big meal but a nice Bap ,currently watching some large bumble bees on the last of the flowers ,perhaps they know something that we dont , also black birds not even touching the berries ,even some of our bats are also spending an hour on the wing ,this post done from my new Samsung tablet , rather than my usual desk top one ,brilliant new toy ,cheers all .:yahoo::yahoo::yahoo:

  3. thought i would give an update ,i,v been on a diet for several months ,lost over a stone ,about 7 kilos roughly .

  5. Hoping my old look could entice some nice winter synoptics ,off down as da today for our big christmas shop ,got our Christmas Dec's out of the loft last night and was amazed that several Bats were over in the corner ,always thought they were under lead flashing around side chimney ,did see two very large bats back in summer which are possibly these but does anyone know that two types live close together ,the other ones are pippistrals but the ones flying around this summer were huge in comparison cheers:cold:

  6. A MIXED day today weatherwise in between the showers , our freezer needed sorting and cleaning ,glad i started it as i found some wild boar sausages we bought at a show that i,d forgotten about and some Baps with a bit of freezer burn .so tomorrow its going to be a Bap day ,the dog will be happy .we have that nagging wind about again roll on the next plume .

  9.

  10. As promised ,my update on bap situation in italy .Whilst in Venice we were told if you want a cheaper meal keep away from st Marks square but venture along back streets ,well we did and found a lovely greigs type shop with sandwiches rolls and Baps on Display ,no sausage Baps but some mouthwatering cured meat baps and fresh egg baps ,two large baps plus two large coffees total 9 euros ,popped up to Dolomites and had my snow fix ,Fantastic holiday nice weather ,cheers gang .

  11. As was suggested last night ,Soup goes well with Baps ,so tonight we both had soup and cheese baps after the first Bap i put some onion on the second Bap ,went down a treat .well lets hope we do eventually get some northern blocking set up it would certainly bring some excitement so still a possibility of perhaps some snow for those that have missed out so far ,cheers all .

    1. Dami

      Dami

      all you need now is that snow =)

  12. Bang goes the Gardening today with the Hvy rain ,the dog looking at me for a walk, Later boy.Baps been out freezer long enough now, sausages and bacon going under grill soon . still losing weight even with all these Baps just going carefull other times . Well any one seeing snow over coming week will be lucky ones i think ,but still time If we can get some good blocking set up in right position ,cheers all .

  13. Baps have been off the menu lately ,i,v actually lost half a stone ,tomorrow though out with the dog for a long walk and i,ll probably pack a bap and packet of crisps ,winters on its way me legs are getting cold so the fire is on low with the dog soaking up the heat ,cheers .

  14. counting down the days for our first ever visit too Blackpool next tuesday ,Fish n chips ,live shows Amusement arcades , and on cue Ecm gives us a nice low ,but cant grumble weather at the mo brilliant ,some very interesting high level clouds outside tonight ,tinting the moon , last night i counted two hummingbird hawk moths having a visit to my Larkspur ,and two Hedgehogs sniffing around ,after 7 years since we last had any in the garden its great to see them again .

      Cut mine on Friday ,need some new scissors,had a nice cheese BAP on a mountain this morning :)..

  16. Dark dank and Depressing hvy rain forecast for most of today, I feel like a nice Bap but will resist temptation instead preparing a nice roast pork meal with plenty of vegetables and drink loads of water so i dont pig out on bread to soak up the gravy .i,m now keeping fingers crossed for a cold snowy march to get some curtain peering and lamp post watching in ,Isee a Lamp post in a different light than my Dog ,he certainly does not respect our local lamp posts , cheers .

  17. evening all ,well lets hope all of us can get some of the forecasted summery weather in the outlook , and it would be nice for that wind to do a runner .crikey what heat over in the middle east ,frying eggs in the sun is on many social media sites ,anyone for an egg Bap ,cheers all .

    1. Dami

      Dami

      No thx, don't really like fried eggs, but if you have a tuna or sausage one, yes please!

      Mokidugway

      I doubt there will be much bacon out there !!.

  18. evening all ,what a drab damp dark day its been ,will we get a mini plume later this week ,and is the weather hinting at a very long bitter snowy winter .i,m going to get another freezer for the garage and stock up now on baps and sausages ,going to go around local grit bins and have a stock up ,shovels are on order candles matches etc ,talking of Baps might have a ham bap for supper ,cheers gang .

      I hate it when people have to resort to using CAPITALS! I agree though, move the M4 to North of Watford, or do I mean South of Bishop's Stortford? or Ordfordness? Whatever, if Carlsberg made snowstorms we'd get a dumping.

  25. Good afternoon Bappers , are we all ready for the Big fry up .suncream ,fans ,Stellas on ice , fly swatters .and of course those magical severe thunderstorms and torrential rain .A nice quick meal tip ,Sausage bap with pickle ,best of luck for all those wishing for a good storm ,cheers all .
