  1. Did you know.

    Maybe if you were still wearing your raingoat?
  2. Make us laugh

    As told by a woman I know.... The other night I was invited out for a night with the “girls.” I told my husband that I would be home by midnight, “I promise!” Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easily. Around 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home. Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started up and cuckooed 3 times. Quickly, realising my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another 9 times. I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution, in order to escape a possible conflict with him. (Even when totally smashed… 3 cuckoos plus 9 cuckoos totals 12 cuckoos = MIDNIGHT !) The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, I told him “MIDNIGHT”… he didn’t seem cheesed off in the least. Whew, I got away with that one! Then he said “We need a new cuckoo clock.” When I asked him why, he said, “Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, then said “oh s#£t” Cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, and then tripped over the coffee table and farted.

  8. I was on the fells yesterday and was surprised how clear the air was then! From Silver Howe near Grasmere we could easily see the summit of Ingleborough maybe 30 miles away as the crowd flies, could be more...
  9. They're called Avios points now I think....I thought that was Spanish for "do one"
  10. Might be another dollop to come Moki, depends if it cools down too much I guess
  11. Did you know.

    Right pain in the butt innit?
  12. Yeah was an absolutely beautiful day to be on the tops, very mid summerish, but with a different more genial, less harsh midday sun. Didn't prevent Mrs C getting a touch more colour than desired but hey, better than the mildewfest we'd otherwise have! Managed the first bbq of the year, utterly sublime as the midges aren't in full flow yet! I think we got your rain as it suckered down, my daughter was at ours when it started had to dash home to get washing in. She's back here now borrowing the the tumble dryer!
  13. Aye, still rattling a bit, odd flash...lightning as well
  14. We're having a goodly storm atm, biggest claps of thunder I've years in years!!
