4 Oct, 2012

 

Well, what a surprise on my return!!!

It just makes me realise why I keep as many layers on as possible these days!!!

Mind you, the idea about our own calendar - now there's a thought!!!

I'll be December in full length coat, huge scarf, boots, hat and gloves and I'll wear some holly in a safe place!!!

4 Oct, 2012

 

You Naughty Saucy girl Sandra!!, so this is what the boys have in store for them on the Cruise, Im going to get Harry some extra strong sun glasses lol

Hi Chris..nice to see you are back:o) Ok then you can be December,if you insist..but hope the holly is the non prickly variety..with tinsel ! Lol

4 Oct, 2012

 

Lol,Carole..the boys won't be seeing me like this..I don't take plantpots on holiday..what you choose to wear..or not, is your choice! :o))

4 Oct, 2012

 

That made me laugh very much Bloomer

4 Oct, 2012

 

Lol.Paul..glad about that..just a bit of fun eh?..I am enjoying reading the comments as well..:o)

4 Oct, 2012

 

Thats brilliant Bloomer, so funny, and once again my mind is off on yet another tangent, lol......

4 Oct, 2012

 

Thanks Sue..I had a feeling you might join in at some point!The mind boggles at your tangent!Lol....

4 Oct, 2012

 

I was thinking more in the line of Sunflowers and a Laurel Wreath;0)

4 Oct, 2012

 

Fig leaves come to mind,lol...

4 Oct, 2012

 

Lol Bloomer what a brave soul she is and with gnomes looking on too......eek
A belated Happy Birthday :o)

4 Oct, 2012

 

That sounds ok ,Carole..don't forget the high factor sun cream..nothing worse than burnt bits ! :o))......and Sue..it might have to be dock leaves,as the greenery...not a lot of figs in my part of Yorkshire ..:o)))

5 Oct, 2012

 

Some people like an audience,Neellan ! ..Lol...and thanks for your birthday wishes :o))

5 Oct, 2012

 

Lololol! I think I'll just stay hiding in my fig tree...until the fashion changes...!

Happy belated Birthday, Bloomer! :) xxx

5 Oct, 2012

 

ha ha,Karen..and I'm wondering where you will hide when all the leaves drop off ??..well,you have the Leylandii to rely on now!...thanks for your good wishes..xx

5 Oct, 2012

 

I'll hide anywhere rather than going tiptoing through the tulips in nothing more than a few bits of shrubbery and a straw hat...

LOL! It does take the phrase, "going commando" to a whole nuther level though... ;))) xx

5 Oct, 2012

 

Lol,Karen..you and me both :o)

5 Oct, 2012

 

It is a pic of Bloomer, Pansypotter told me, you're too modest Sandra. The outfit is of course from B.A.Fashion, you were bang on Annella, but I'm sorry to say that a couple of buttercups would be all I needed for the top:-(

5 Oct, 2012

 

Sandra, just shown this to Michael and his reaction was: Blimey ... is that a 3 for 2 offer?!!!!!

5 Oct, 2012

 

Lol. Bloomer, think the gnomes have got the best view.

5 Oct, 2012

 

Lololol! Stroller, I think you're right...look at the expression on the middle one's face! And it's clearly all too much for the bottom one...

5 Oct, 2012

 

BA....first it was bride importation...now this!
Don't you think it's time you got a proper job? :D

5 Oct, 2012

 

Cheeky devil,Ba..:o) Buttercups eh? so that is what that yellow glow is under your chin ! ..does it light your way in the dark,when you are slug hunting? Lol...

5 Oct, 2012

 

Lol,Shirley..I really worry about your Michael..does he always want a bulk buy? first ,the bark chippings..now this ...and probably 10 percent off as well..if he buys on a wednesday ! :o))

5 Oct, 2012

 

I agree Stroller..always best to stay in the background ..so to speak ! Lol.
I have just had to scroll back,Karen..I hadn't taken notice of the Gnomes ! Middle one looks a bit pervy to me..back one looks really bored..he's seen that face before....little one at the front is only pretending to be coy..mark my words ! Lol.

5 Oct, 2012

 

Oh heck, I`m worrying about what I`m turning into especially at my age, I hadn`t even noticed the gnomes, lol, whats that say about me ??????

5 Oct, 2012

 

about the same as me,Sue ! Lol..

5 Oct, 2012

 

...and me...
...but once pointed in the right direction?

One way or another, it can only end in a laugh!!! :DDD

5 Oct, 2012

 

Ooh Bloomer!! There I go having a week away and you have a makeover!......go for it girl!

6 Oct, 2012

 

Of course,Karen..the way it was intended ! :o)

6 Oct, 2012

 

Hi Pam.hope you enjoyed your holiday..and I thought I would make the effort,just for you :o)..no Botox involved..but some Polyfiller might have helped ! LOl.

6 Oct, 2012

 

Brilliant Bloomer . . . thanks for the smile :))

My local drama group put on the stage version of Calendar Girls last week: sold out every night, and SO brave as they're all shapes and sizes!

6 Oct, 2012

 

Lovely thanks Bloomer..... we really enjoyed Kew gardens, parts of kent were lovely but needs regeneration in places like Margate........

Oh Sheila.....! So brave as you say. :0))

6 Oct, 2012

 

Thank you,Sheila..you are welcome..:o) I bet everyone had a great time at your local show ..and very brave!! good for them,to have the nerve ! Lol.

6 Oct, 2012

 

I'm glad you enjoyed Kew,Pam..I would love to visit again.
It's years since I was in Margate..we stayed in Cliftonville,just outside...it's a shame a lot of our seaside places are going the same way..nowhere better if we had the weather..and if they had the money to spend ,doing them up ...

6 Oct, 2012

 

They have the Turner Gallery right on the seafront near the harbour but its so modern it sticks out like a sore thumb with not even a carpark, nice cafe but the whole exhibition rooms were closed for a new showing, doesn't seem to help the area at all
The trees in Kew will be full of autumn colour soon, some were turning, we were so lucky with the weather

7 Oct, 2012

 

These new buildings never seem to fit in with their surroundings,I agree..They have just built some huge new ones here,for the Uni..just horrible..and we have so many lovely stone ones ..just too expensive ,I guess. but I'm sure the Architects could have come up with something more pleasing to the eye..
Kew would be lovely to see soon..also a trip to the Lake District would be good...stunning in Autumn :o)

7 Oct, 2012

 

WOW!!! What a blog ??? FANTASTIC:-000 LOL!!!YOU MAKE MY DAY SANDRA:-0000

11 Oct, 2012

 

Thanks Junna..glad it made you smile :o)

11 Oct, 2012

 

Summer Bloomer? I remember it well..... it didn't last long tho' did it my friend !

15 Oct, 2012

 

It certainly didn't Richard..I'm just wondering what the lady in the picture will wear now? ..I think the smile might have gone ! Lol.

16 Oct, 2012

 

I think the lady will be wearing her thermals and knitwear now if her weather is anything like we have here...lol ;-)

16 Oct, 2012

 

...if it's anything like here, it'll be layers...

...a layer of buttercups/daisies (it's good to have something frilly, to trap the air and make you warm), followed by a layer of something more substantial, like the fig leaf...then topped of with rhubarb...or, even better, one of it's giant relatives...

It's 2°C in the morning here...and 25°C in the afternoon!...It's a good idea to be able to peel on and off!!! :)))

16 Oct, 2012

 

good thinking,Karen..:o)..I think the hat and scarf needs to stay..maybe a roll of bubble wrap and fleece would be needed later on..you are aware the daisies/buttercups will die off soon,aren't you? .:o))..It has been pretty cold here too,and very windy..lots of rain this morning as well...that's such an extreme of temps you are having.....
