    Our (my) naughty step has a book shelf, a magazine rack and a cup holder just to one side.

    I’ve been reading through the new posts, my third finger is throbbing due to trapping it in a door, tearing one side open near the nail.
    I used to think that ‘when I was older’ I would be less accident prone. It was my aim to recover from one incident before the next happens. Now I’m way past that - the grey cells are disappearing and I suspect it’s only downhill from now on.

    The listening in topic is funny. I was told, long ago, of staff at Embassies in the East Bloc (ie behind the old Iron Curtain). I don’t remember which country, but apparently when things in the state-controlled apartment were not working, it was very difficult to get anyone to come to fix anything. So they tried something else. Instead of reporting the problem, they sat with their colleagues in the apartment and talked about how useless this country was, and how nobody could repair anything, words to the effect ‘it just shows how pathetic this system is.’
    Result! Somebody arrived at the next possible time to repair the problem which had not been reported. ;-)))

    @dunelm step away from the knife drawer immediately..good grief!
    @Viv19 that injury sounds horrible too! I am almost afraid to open the cutlery drawer today! @Bildad and @DJC3 the animal antics are funny. Its a good job we love them otherwise...my cats have thrashed all our furniture with scratching but when we move and replace the sofas I have discovered a roll of what I can only describe as giant sellotape on Amazon which is meant to deter them. My late MIL always made us laugh when she related the story of the puppy they left for the afternoon. When they returned it had scratched off all the wallpaper to a certain height all around the room.

    Well photo shoot for the article in The Sun is done thank heaven and you’ll all be pleased to hear I got to keep my top on!
    Dennis was very confused about having to walk the same 4 yards down the lane again and again, and point blank refused to sit nicely in the flower bed looking angelic - there was a big bee buzzing around so no chance! He only tried to chew the camera man’s case once at the end so a good result I think. No idea when it’s appearing.

    good afternoon all :)

    4.6 today

    anyone know how to reset the default typeface setting on here? since I've reinstalled stuff I have to log in again every day and it keeps defaulting to tiny 'times new roman' which is a bit bizarre :sorry: so I must have done something wrong.

    It's raining gently here so we're having a quiet day pottering around doing jobs around the house after our gutter cleaning endeavours yesterday at mum's. Mr gee is indeed a 'keeper' @jjraak :D

    @ianpspurs I'm not so keen on the gooseberry picking myself, endlessly spiky, there are two green gooseberry bushes at mum's and one red gooseberry bush here, ours doesn't always do well because of the sandy soil but with all the rain it's done pretty well this year. mr gee and his mum both like gooseberry fool or crumble and at least they are easier to 'top and tail' than blackcurrants.

    Hope your day is treating you well :)

    @Viv19 and @PenguinMum I’ll certainly let you know when I find out. @Debandez was doing the same thing this afternoon so maybe she knows more?

    I just check the coding and it uses the default, so, you can't change it via the site. I see it in Verdana because my browser is set to Verdana, not the site. So you will have to change your browser settings, as you have re-installed everything they will have all gone back to defaults.

    Kept my clothes on too! Photographer said that all he knows is that they prepare these articles ready for a lull in the news. Not going to happen any time soon! But a few of us had photos done today so my guess is it might be sooner rather than later. My interviewer said it's a full week on diabetes. DCUK behind it I'm sure she said. Happy days.

    Check out Jason Fung on you tube. He puts it in simple terms (great for me!) And is pure genius.
