  1. If I posted in here alot you could add a 0 to that weekly number, thats what I meant Of all the forums I go on, this one is the tighest run ship. Its great though and it works, thats why I stick around, albeit in the shadows
  2. Evening all Just thought I'd nip in quick and say how much I love this thread! The reason I hardly post is because I find it extremely hard to keep on topic (natural born waffler) so rather than have me being told off and having my posts frequently deleted I choose to read rather than post (most of the time) Personally I think its nice to pop in here and read something other than rain, rain, rain, rain, rain, rain, wet, soggy, grey, windy, blowy, which quite frankly would be all we would've had to say over the past 2 months if everything was strictly weather related Anyway obligatory weathervane P.S not looking forward to Weds offerings!
  3. Morning all from a chilly Faversham Had a great morning reading all the reminiscent posts this morning while warming up with a cup of tea. It did bring back memories for me too, especially about the coalman. Our coalman was my bogeyman. He was terrifying! I'd be happily playing away in the garden and then he'd come walking round the corner, face black, eyes glowing white, carrying the sacks of coal to the bunker. He was so miserable and never said hello, he'd just stare and of course I was terrified of him haha. In the end my Mum used to warn me when he'd be coming so I could hide indoors. We never had heating other than the open fires and no hot water either. Bath time meant heating a huge drum of water up. I miss those days and our lovely incredibly old country house
  4. thank you all. Just seen all the replies! I did get a zoom and have a nice little kit going on now. I got a Macro lens for Christmas so I'm having fun with that. Just need it to snow now for some awesome Snowflake Pics
  5. Morning all, Happy Christmas Eve!! I hope everyone is ok and you haven't suffered too much loss or damage. Lots of trees down around Faversham. Luckily the ones out the front stayed standing. We lost power numerous times in the early hours but its all ok now. I feel like saying I dont want to experience that again anytime soon but there is talk of Part 2 on Friday, Lordy. Hopefully it will be less mean.
  6. the huge trees out the front of our house are cracking. I had a look out the door and could hear them with every gust. I've moved the kids to my bed in the back of the house, not taking any chances because if one of those came down towards the house we'd be in trouble. I cant imagine what its going to be like if it gets worse?!
  7. lights flickering here. I've got the dinner cooked and on the simmer keeping it warm so at least we'll eat. I hope to God everyone is ok that is out in that. Makes me feel sad thinking about it.
  8. I've had to put the tumble dryer on to drown out the noise, its scaring the kids. Hopefully they'll be sound asleep later when it really gets going. Its beastly out there now. Scary/exciting all at once
  9. take care everyone if you're venturing out and about. I'm popping out in an hour to get the last bits done. And just in case we lose power and internet I shall say it now, Have a wonderful Christmas everyone xx
  10. absolutely brilliant. Complete with xmas countdown woohoo!
  11. wow that sure is wild out there tonight, house isn't quite shaking yet but the fireplace is rattling. I love being indoors listening to that noise, super cosy!
  12. Common Blue butterfly I took a couple of months ago (one of my favourite pics so far) and a beauty of a spider in the garden.
  13. stay safe everyone! This has really shocked me. I've been dreaming of snow and didn't think for a second we'd have floods to think about. The red warning comes to just across the park from me.
  14. I used to really suffer every Winter in my teens, fine in my twenties and now I'm suffering in my thirties. My sleep cycle is screwed & I feel miserable. its so annoying as I'm a very happy person and it bothers me when I have no 'zing'. I love being out in the cold Winter air, the smell is fantastic, I think its just the lack of light that really plays havoc with my emotions and internal clock. I found a lamp today anyway and rekon its worth a go. Either that or some Snow as that would definitely make me feel better
  15. Thanks will! I'm sad you've moved. I no longer have my snow lookout, which means I'm going to have to lamp post watch 24/7. I used to be able to log on here and you'd have given the latest Fav snow updates and I didn't even have to look out the window! I hope you get loads of snow in Glossop this winter On topic - bloomin freezing tonight! I totally underestimated how cold it was earlier too and my fingers nearly fell off. It's definitely gloves and scarf time!
  16. Morning everyone Bit chilly out there today although not as chilly as I thought it would be. The moon was huge this morning so I grabbed a couple of pics. I'm looking forward to the Snow Cup. Hopefully we'll have something to stick our rulers in very soon I've banned myself from the mod thread this year. The last 2 years have been so emotionally stressful just reading it so I've not ventured in this time. This thread is full of excellent posters with all the info you'd ever need anyway. Happy, non argumentative, sane(ish) people with straight up weather info in here and not a pram or strewn toy in sight. Just the way I like it Have a great day all
  17. One of my friends did this about 10 years ago. He burnt his whole face he looks pretty normal now but it was AWFUL. He has the pic of his burnt face as his FB profile pic and I hate seeing it...melted *shudder*
  18. Happy Soggy Halloween! I look like a drowned rat after sweeping the leaves from the front door. It was probably a total waste of time seeing as the weekend will probably bring a ton more to the doorstep haha. Hope everyone has a great day

    The Curry Thread

    Just remembered they do cookery courses at our favourites' resturant. £200 for a 6 week course though... Ouch. I'd love to know some of their secrets though!

    The Curry Thread

    Oooh that looks good, love the comments on it lol, id definately try that. Bombay Flame is gorgeous, it has potatoes in too which are Devine. It's hot...lip numbing hot. The prices are the same from our favorite. It works out about £35 a time for 2 but it's good food and worth every penny.

    The Curry Thread

    My fave from the takeaway is Chicken Bombay Flame made with naga chilli and I make a mean Vindaloo in the slow cooker. I'd eat curry everyday if my body allowed me to, sadly it doesn't!
  22. Evening all I'm So hungry after reading the last couple of pages!! Tonight's menu sounds delish. We had good ol shepherds pie and veg, perfect food for a chilly evening We had a great day enjoying the autumn sunshine. we went out to collect a ton of twigs and leaves to make new trees as lots were broken in the storm. It was my sons idea (he is only 5) so with a little help from some Sellotape we now have a house full of 'trees' it's like the great outdoors in here. It was a beautiful day, some gorgeous clouds in the sky which we layed and watched for a while
