Sunday dinner was not a disappointment!!! This was DH's dinner...not mine promise (wink wink) I don,t like broad beans or boiled potatoes , I like roasties..yum yum. I suggested next time he might
want to go the whole hog (get it pork dinner he he !!) and use a turkey platter instead of a normal plate.......
We are so lucky to have a little post office in our village but it had a major glitch with the computer last week...call me old fashioned but I know I could of posted somewhere else..a few miles away , but if we don't "use it" we will loose the Post Office with all cutbacks going on and having a local office for cash back (school dinners, local fish and butcher calling once a week...I know, I am still amazed this still happens!!!, )is so handy for ready cash is important at times. So although I had a couple of
things to post I waited until today to post. My little lot will raise the figures a little for our little PO.
Anyway Bob our Postmaster is a fellow Londoner like me!'.... We always have a joke and
laugh..when I go into the shop he shouts "out !!..I refuse to serve riffraff !" At first DH was a little
taken aback by our banter...he always says when I talk to other Londoners (family etc )I speak so fast
that even after 26 years nearly together he struggles to understand me!!!'..I think the same of him when he goes "back up north"!!!! Anyway finally the computer was repaired and as I told Bob he was a lucky boy to have the joy of my company whilst he sorted my little bag of goodies!!!
Although moving here to our little village was in reflection completely "out of my comfort zone" , I love it. People are friendly, nosey in a caring sort of way and it reminds me of growing up in South London...all our neighbours then were honorary aunties and uncles, no one had anymore or any less that anyone else . When I was five I had a nasty nasty deep gash to my leg that needed A&E treatment and we only had two neighbours who had cars..so Dad yelled to my sister" ask Uncle Bert
or Albert if they can run us to the hospital" and one took us and the other picked us up later... ... That
sort of neighbourhood spirit is still in our village and I love that.
So I hope all my post arrives safely , it is going here there and everywhere. I now have my season
swap to finish.....happy days......and a couple of bits for the paper and string (in my sidebar) swap and then concentrate on my Christmas swaps.
Dexter has been shaking his head all weekend... Trying to put his paw in his ears...so off to the vets this morning...as most animals he barks and shakes and hates it. I muzzled him as he is a good boy but not knowing what was in his ears , better to be safe then sorry. Transpires he has loads of wax in his ears and had a scratch from where he has been trying to itch, so ear cleaning and ear drops on the agenda for a week, but vet said no infection as we caught it early. DH has designated me as nurse, another skill to add to m CV..!!!! Will my talents ever cease ..ha ha..know DH 's game he doesn,t want Dextie to hate him because he is going to do a mean thing to him !!!! ..oh and Dextie needs to loose 4 kilos !!! Thought he was heavy last week, we have to reduce his food by a third ..oh dear !!!
Dally's like labs love their dinners...going to be major sulking going on!!! Next weigh in when he has his jabs in early December.. ...
Took these few pics from Newcastle Emlyn whilst waiting for our boy's appointment...

Oh stormy weather..
