    But it doesn't end with the frock does it? You won't have the right handbag, shoes, hat and gloves to wear. Then you simply must change for the evening "do." Is there a colour scheme? Think it through man. I expect better of you.:angelic:

    Sounds like another one of those apps where you need to draw a map of the drop downs.

    It won't end well if you turn up in a John Deer boiler suit, nattily tied with baler twine. At least polish the wellies - I know a colourful real life anecdote about that. Please tell me you aren't using the vintage Massey, the one for spreading slurry with a fringe on top.

    A self propelled combined muck spreader and reaper binder was my first thought

    I don't think tough guys like dunelm would be singing, "I am a lumberjack" or being a member of the Concert party when he was in the mob!

    Great stuff, Ian. Very politically incorrect in modern times!

    7.50am FBG 3.7

    What is happening here?

    Actually had late night snack. Small chunk of bread with (as recommended by @ianpspurs) epoisses cheese. Incredibly smelly stuff, but soft and unctious inside. chicken me refused to eat the rind, MrSlim ate all.

    Today the Guard Cat saw off a large dog. Absolutely sterling performance from Errant, not once but twice refused to let the dog in through the gate. Longish encounter lot of barking from dog and growling (cat) eventually cat stalked towards the dog , who fled when he got within two metres. Mucho praise and cuddles for the Guardian of the Gate

    Good morning everyone from a still and dark start here in the dark and dangerous north
    The wonder wheel of avocado and crab salad came in at 5.4 this am

    What a to-do. Wedding at the weekend - a niece this time - para medic on the ambulances so I expect that this will be a bit of a respite for her. A bit of shopping then yesterday - on my own of course - none of this browsing nonsense and staring into shop windows. I needed (not really, wanted) a waistcoat. Job done and then into M&S for a pair of jeans - no luck so sourced from their website when I got home. What they need is a jeans machine - you tap in your colour choice, leg and waist sizes, optional extras and hey presto, a gang of imps in the back of the machine quickly make them for you while you relax over a koffy. Pretty sure that Terry Pratchett (RIP) had already invented such a thing.
    Nice phone call from GP surgery as a follow up from my visit the day before - can I come in next week for an MOT with my GP? Oh, you are awful, but I like you.
    Another soapy water painting, I did treat quite a bit of the paper. Anyhow, got to get the bins out - do them good to get an early fright - and then a koffy. Enjoy your day.

    It most definitely is @dunelm
    I researched the app, and it turns out it was made for a laptop and that big screen. The floppy disc save button is on that apparently, but not on the tiny pixel phone screen. Hence all the drop down menus which are not intuitive at all. It was not designed in any way whatsoever for a tiny phone screen.
    But I like what it has the possibility of creating, so I will have a go at making a map of those drop downs...but not today!

    Blue/greens would be my favourite too @dunelm
    But it would work with all combinations I think...particularly limited combinations of colours possibly...
