    You mean to go on their chat and have a word with their representative on there @jjraak
    I am a bit p'd off today.
    Other things too, like I just said in my post a moment ago, about my car.

    I am in a don't mess with me mood...

    But yes I see your point. I need to do a painting to wind down, and come back to earth...

    We had a shock this am. Eldest daughter has been in bed with Covid since weekend.
    Not too surprising judging by the poor triage when she was doing scheduled call out the saturday before.

    Yes, it certainly does - apart from the accent and lack of funny shaped pies.

    Not keen on turkey - no flavour unless you fork out for one of those nice little free range ones

    Thanks dunelm, she is nearly three years off 60, so no longer young. One always has concerns, particularly when there has been health problems.

    We have an excellent local butcher and their also farmers. They source excellent local turkey, we shall be getting ourselves a large fresh turkey crown this year for the two of us. There is plenty for few days but we don't usually eat more than Christmas Day and we freeze the rest in lots of enough for a day and then pull it out when we fancy some turkey.

    It was Krystyna I nodded off on the sofa watching Schitt's Creek (so funny) for the third time...one hiccup hadn't lit the fire doing that now.

    good evening all :)

    4.8 first thing this morning then 4.4 before breakfast.

    out to get mum's shopping list and for mr gee to get his hair cut today :) then walking round the village in the lovely sunshine :joyful:

    hope your day is treating you kindly :)

    @Muddy Cyclist - your home made walnut ink has a lovely tone and texture, love both of these statuesque and stately trees :)

    @gennepher - those postcards are a real slice of history, I used to love trad. markets where you could buy almost anything ;)
    your artwork is good, so atmospheric and interesting :)

    @Alien Aspie - my dad loved steam trains, the railways were very important where he lived when he was young (Selby), nothing smells quite like a steam engine.

    @Krystyna23040 - Samurai sudoku :arghh:

    @dunelm - really effective landscape again with that touch of colour :) haven't been to Robin Hood's bay for a long long time (and me a Yorkshire lass :sorry:)

    @lindisfel - hope everything goes well for your daughter.

    art bit -
    every now and then I put a building in :hilarious:
    from a photo on the internet.

    I do gennepher...worth sending them an email asking for clarification I would reorder...obviously can't guarantee I'm right but the same thing happened to me...if the package is damaged there may be some items missing or damaged so they won't deliver.

    That is close to apostasy in this region. Once tried an expensive (£120) Copas (Berkshire) turkey just to see what all the fuss was about - major mistake. The College of West Anglia, Cambridge, had succulent ones. They didn't rear any last year, must check the site soon. We do like goose but we have taken to eating that on Nov 11 but there isn't much meat on a goose if the family assemble. I rather like turkey dripping from a good turkey. May just have beef this year if we are only 2.

    @dunelm I like the scene, choppy sea, the subtle colour introduced works very well. Some good interesting facts also.

    @gennepher you do have some strange days. I had a business account in a Nat West Bank, for some reason they always needed someone in the bank to identify me when I took out payroll money, yes old days, I always had to put my cap ON to be recongnised, weird.

    Like your spooky evening Pastel today, waiting for something to happen.
