Olivers story & toilet stop ; )


Ok so here’s the scene. I was driving back from Devon, a long drive. I was very tired but needed the toilet.

Ah I know, just hitting the M4, I’ll pop into Lulus ; )

and look who was there (with crazed looks on thier faces as they helped themselves to a couple of Morrys plants I was just showing them ; )

But LOOK Sticki made me a giant birthday shortbread biscuit (two weeks after my actual birthday). Noone has even made me a giant birthday shortbread biscuit before : ) Thank you
I have to say it beats the card my nephew sent me (2 weeks late) with a couple of free condoms from the students union!!

We’ll even light the candle for you. I made a wish (that when I offer folks to have a £1.79 clematis they obviously wont take the ones I obviously specifically want to keep ; )

and I supposes a few photos of Lulus garden, bit disheveled isnt it!

oh a wonderful clem, how boring ; )

Just chucked anywhere!

Its just chaos!

more chaos ; )

a wonderful Clematis ville de lyon, in the perfect setting, hmm how tedious


more tedium ; ) Ok lovely isn’t it all

But unfortunately Lulu has been lacking a bit of inspiration recently on the mosaic front. Luckily I was at hand to offer my expert advice. Here I am demonstrating how to capture the aesthetic of a flower perfectly….

and here we all are at the first ever inaugural meeting of the GoYers Tank Top society in our new HQ. Unfortunately I had forgotten mine but was still allowed to attend even though space was limited.

apparently some lovely aquilegia somewhere ; )

Millipus wasnt interested…no

Ok last time I forgot to take a pic or two of the lovely pond so here you are….Perry!!!

Ok ladies lets have one of yout two by the pond, Lulu ignores me whilst Sticki ruins the shot by hiding!

Slugs had a sniff though

Apparently the girls had already stuffed their faces with lunch before I arrived. I did have some of the best onion flan/tart ever made with some other lovely stuff as well. Later on I remembered that last time Stickis huge cakes
lasted about a day, so lets see whats still in the fridge to have with a bit of cheese…..oh

We then sat down and spent the next three hours trying to take a pic of the woodpecker we caught a glimpse of. heres Loos (with no shoes) adjusting the feeder (which didn’t work either)

Here it is, laughing at us!!!

Lulu stormed off and started talking to a fence! nice shot though

Ok and finally here’s Oliver the fresh water oyster, safe in his new home, just before he went down to settle on the bottom

And heres (most of) the rest of the gang before they dashed off to munch all that nice algea

and Thanks again for a lovely afternoon Lulu and Sticki : )

Sorry to hear about the polyshed, can you fix it and maybe anchor it a bit?

Once again thank you for your wonderful hospitality

9 Jun, 2012


I keep imagining those little oysters with nemo!

What was it 'the world is your oyster' ??? ......and now the world is to be taken over by oysters?

Stevie i know you call lulu, Lou, but toilet stop?!

10 Jun, 2012


Ok, so apparently we need a natural pond with at least 5" of mud...for swan mussles...sorry oysters!!get digging folks!
Are you having a good time Sticki?

10 Jun, 2012


5" ???? Maybe they could have a holiday break and go to the natural pond for a rest?

Bit cloudier and cooler today, but there is a band of blue above the horizon, so I'm hopeful?

Lots of shells, any good for a mosaic?

There was a sheep all tangled up in the wire fence yesterday but we found someone who knew the farmer so Shaggy Shawn is now fine!

Beach is so beautiful, wish you were both here!

10 Jun, 2012


Wish we were there too + 3 puppies!
Shells always good sticki!!
Glad shaggy shawn is ok and hope you are getting some fine photos for that mega blog next week!!

10 Jun, 2012


It is unbelievably quiet here, you can only hear wind, waves, birds and sheep!

Lots of photos, not sure any do it justice though!

Cold wind yesterday had butternut squash and toasted sweetcorn soup for dinner, superb!

Puppies would love it all!
