I’m finding the more you use the forum…the easier it gets
Really grey day here, but I’ve been stitching, making some soup and reading my book and now the snooker is on. I’m content.
Have been talking to Jac, she’s thinking about coming on here - just thinking about it!
Being inundated by wasps for the last few days.The six houses in this row are being pestered too.There’s probably a nest somewhere near.Put the old trick of a jam jar filled with water with a bit of marmalade round the rim outside so that they’re attracted to that and not fly into the house.The dog swallowed one this morning but wasn’t stung.
Hope Jac joins us.
morning all,yey,the suns out,need it to dry up the soaking we had,
have a great Sunday
Sun trying to break through.
Counted 18 dead wasps on the kitchen window sill yesterday.There doesn’t seem too many around this morning.Hope that’s it for the invasion this year.
Going to your neck of the woods tomorrow doc-Pontyberem and Pontyates.
been busy getting new roof waterproof,knackered,
you picked a good day Rhosyn,its sposed to be sunny all day in Pontyates,
I thought we were supposed to be having a lovely sunny week. Well until about 4 pm and was cloudy and pretty chilly here with a northeast wind. Watching “Changing Rooms” with Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen - wonder where they dug him up from…
I hope I’m not intruding not being a member BUT,I lived around Cardiff and the Vale of Glam most of my life and wondered if any of you lot know it.
I wondered why I liked you John - it’s all clear now
When were you in Cardiff last? it’s changed quite a lot over the years (especially when Labour were in govt) much more of world class city now
Sue, I thought the same! I went for a walk and even though the sun was out, it just felt like spring - a bit too cold for me
2008.that’s 13 years isn’t it
It’s just the right size for a city,not too big but big enough to be interesting with lots of parks.This is my home now but I wouldn’t mind going back just for a visit (especially when it’s 40c here :))
Welcome to the fold Smithy
Since I come from Cardiff you will know that’s about the limit of my Welsh.
Didn’t get to go to Pontyeats yesterday-my friend who I was meant to visit had a stomach bug so I just visited Pontyberem.The caravans were out in full force on the M4 heading down West.
G,grandaughter’s been in the Heath overnight-her shunt was playing up but she’s on her way home now thank goodness.
No plans for the Bank Holiday weekend,probably gardening.
Oh is it a Bank Holiday again? It doesn’t seem to make much difference to us out in the sticks - apart from an increase in tourists. My DIL works in Hay and says atm it is heaving - I’m giving it a wide berth, apart from a necessary visit to the Surgery yesterday for more anti-biotics for Rob. I don’t know why tourists think they can walk in the roads just because it’s a small town, they wouldn’t live long if they did that in a city.
Just a quick note to say a new thread about Wales has been posted You can view the thread here:
Don’t forget you can view our mini-forum for Wales here: Wales Forum | Over 50s Chat (over time as more threads about Wales are posted here they will show up there, and when search engines index the forum it will mean more people searching for ‘over 50s in Wales’ will be more likely to spot the forum… and… hopefully… register and join in with you all )
Hey everyone, I just updated our bot to post a notice in this thread whenever a new thread about Wales is posted on the forum (just in case any of you miss it). I’ve added the same functionality for the Over 50s Scotland Club too (and we can do the same for an England or Ireland club if anyone starts a club thread for those too).
Hope you like this feature
went into Carmarthen yesterday,it was caos,bumper to bumper all the way through,that was mid morning,where has all this traffic come from?
off to Crosshands to look at kitchens this morning,boreing lol.
then sunday dinner at Ashburnam golf club
have a great sunday
Sun trying to break through,bit chilly out first thing starting to feel Autumnal.
What better way to spend a Bank Holiday Monday than cleaning the oven!
Hope you enjoyed your meal yesterday and you were successful in your kitchen hunt-doc.
Think I’m going to change into a thicker jumper - I’m cold. August - is it really? There is a north/east wind and no sign of sunshine. Well, must be thankful that I’m not cleaning the oven Rhosyn! Think I may have found a gardener to come and do a lot of cutting back - I’m currently living next to a jungle… Watch this space…
It’s been cloudy for days-I feel like the weather!
Seeing granddaughter and g.rand kids cheered me yesterday.
The church opposite have a fete tomorrow to raise funds for the restoration of the bell tower.The railings outside have been decorated with pompoms and bunting,looks very pretty.Hope it’ll be a success.
