Yes one was upstairs over the arch (Porters Lodge)....the other was next door ( Gatehouse Croft)     loved the church, and the vicar was really nice......he was the one who showed us the artifacts and the skeletons......and told us various things.     The skeletons were going to be left where they'd been found but with a christian burial.

Hi hi all almost Lunch time, the lady came up from Luton and had never really done the Midlands, she had been all over the world but had only ever Driven through the Midlands
We never went in the place she was staying I think it was up some stairs next to the arch, it must of been this time of year as she had wood and coal for the fire to start off but had to buy more, she didn't know there was do many places of history with in minutes of Atherstone,
Yes I said to the director when sh the came up with all these ideas, that I couldn't build them and store them in my garage so they get built I take them to the centre and we will have to find places there, ther is a flat roof over the toilet but thats getting full
Back later, Im building a big fish

Don't forget to hoover  the sofa's, chairs, cushions and all the beds as well Carole.

Well it's fixed....a blocked pump filler and we know how it became blocked....Benjie's bedding burst a week or so ago and of course though I'd thought I'd got all the fluff out some must have got into the pump,  we pay insurance for our electrical things so we didn't need to pay anything, not even call out.    Though David said maybe the next time the washing machine goes we'll get a new one.  

I'll have to do the avatar again.....see if you get it this time Carole.

There you go Carole.....do you see the skeleton now?

Morning all
Well only problem is I cannot put drops
{yes Marge the expensive ones $50} on Tabitha
as last time I did her and Buddy she ended up having
a very bad reaction to them even though I did get her
the lowest dose with her only being 7lb ,Spencer ended
up having to take her to the vets that cost over $100
for the examination and meds they gave her ,that is why
I also picked up this "Natural Spray" for $15 to spray the carpet
and furniture ....we have carpet up here in the bedroom but only
a large carpet on the hardwood floor in the living room
Same down stairs where Spencer is I put the scatter rugs
down there from the old house as its a concrete floor and
cold under foot ,as Spencer took up the W to W carpet that
was down there YEARS ago as tracking in and out of the
attached garage was messing it up ....

I said the same thing did not know HOW Buddy got these ,and told the boys
that THEY could have tracked them in from outside ,she has two small dogs
next door as well and I KNOW for SURE she does NOT spray ,this is the
woman who runs the A/C with her WINDOWS OPEN and I saw this year
that she was taking to leaving her BACK DOOR OPEN as well so her freaking
house must be FULL of ALL SORTS  
I did spray the carpet after dosing Buddy Marge and then hoover

They are saying this morning to lift any flowers you may want
to save as by Friday the temps are going to be SO LOW there could
be a HARD frost ,guess Winter is approaching Rolling Eyes  

Vicky I only see your window still confused2

Hope its nothing expensive regards the washingmachine

Today we SHOULD see some sunny  with temps in the high 50's cheers

So I shall love ya and leave ya for now
Bond what you doing today Leading players again  ,and where DO you store
all the props you make confused2 run run run run

Well we're waiting for the guy to turn up and fix our washingmachine  

Well greyish out there......but dry.

Yes Bond I did know about staying at the Abbey......I'd love that.    One was The Gatehouse Croft (where William Shakespeare went to school)  and the other one was  Porters Lodge.   Great places (not what I'd call outbuildings)....we were shown around both places, and talk about history....couldn't make my mind up which one I liked the best.    But as you say a lovely place right on our doorstep.     We went in 2011 it was advertised "Open Day"  and there'd been a dig in the garden and 2 skeletons found as well as a other artifacts which we saw......really interesting.      

Oh the guys here.

One of the skeletons. (new avatar)

Fleas are bad this year.
I have an outdoor dog on either side of me
so its us that bring the fleas into the house
unless they spray their yards.
My cats have never shown a sign of fleas for years
but this year they have them.
They did Tabbitha at the vets office but I have been
waiting for the kids to leave before doing the drops on
Jagger. He is not scratching very much but it has to be
done.
Mine cannot bear to wear flea collars so use the more
expensive drops. After you "do" them both make sure
you vac the carpets so you get rid of any eggs left
behind.

things I cannot abide ,flies spiders and FLEAS Mad

Well car sailed through......and then we went to Palmers to have la late lunch,  & I bought a sweater from M&S.    It's certainly coming down now.

God don't mention Mrs Simpson Margaret......though to be honest she did us all a good turn we got a better King.        Though I also thought Andrew & Fergie were well suited.   such a shame about that.         I can remember naval wives not too happy that Fergie had been dropped onto Andrews ship because she was missing him while other wives just had to go on missing their husbands.        

Yes  had a lovely time with James and the family......though the weather wasn't good and it was a tiring journey for her.2 trains there 2 trains back and taxis.

BTW Carole no Susan won't be having carpets in any of the bathrooms.....all tiled floors.

BTW don't knock it Carole well done for keeping criminals out of the Country.....wish we had such laws.

Ok later.....

Morning Marge ,yes saw your in for some
warm weather ,what was it they closed down
not wanting to spark any fires ?

I know the email beeping drives me crazy also
so only check it once in a while

Just watched the last of a series on 90 day Fiancee
that I have been following ,hope the guy from WSM
and his now wife Rachael get his visa ,but it depends on
what the immigration over here deem how his "fighting"
criminal record will affect his entry here ,they said it
could take up to 2yrs Sad


Still a VERY grey day this side of the
 
Back to my tv

Shades of Mrs Simpson I think.
She will have to win them over.
Kate was an English rose in their eyes
and they were hoping the same for
Harry.
I happen to think they are well suited.
But I thought Fergie and Andrew were
well suited also.
It was the palace that deemed she could not
live on the base when Andrew was in the navy,
and that she was not allowed to work or invite
her friends to the place they were living in.
We all know that William put his foot down after
he met Kate after what happened to Diana at first.

The Queen and Prince Phillip spent two years in
Gibralter when first married, so were able to live
like any service couple away from home.
She was able to mix with the other service wives
and drive herself out for coffee or have her hair done.
Which Fergie was not allowed to do but Kate did
while William was stationed in Wales.
I equate Meghan to Princess Grace who gave up
acting to marry a Prince. Its a tough transition
to make for anyone not born into it.

After the rain comes the real change in the weather.
We are expecting high fire dangers out in the deserts
and valleys with high dry winds. Its scheduled to be
80f today here locally. Its slowly creeping up from 70f
at the moment with bright sun.
Expecting the man from the blinds place this morning
so up and running early but not expecting him to show up
at the time he says he will.
I cannot go out until he has been though so going to do a few
chores while I wait.

My new phone is set to ping or make a noise every time I
get a FB post or message or E-mail and its already driving me
crazy!
I also need to get a cover for it so it does not get scratched.

Flight is booked, I am on Virgin Atlantic it seems as its the
only one that has the times I want there and back.
it cost a little more but its less than Air New Zealand wanted!
Hi, Ho, its off to work I go TTFN

and after slicing off the breast to make sarnies
for the lads lunches I also had some with some lettuce
and the remains of my cherry tomato's √

So much for "scattered SHOWERS" and getting into
the middle 60's ,its 57f light rain and MISERABLE
looking ....
So Buddy and I will be watching some TV ,he will be sleeping
next to me {came to bed last night and cuddled right up to me}

Morning Vicky ,yes they are saying on the ABC news
right now she is 12 weeks along and due when I said in April
Strange as they seem to THINK she is being well accepted
over there from what they show on TV

So whats new with did she enjoy her visit to her son?

Meant to say well done to Matthew yesterday headball

Its looking miserable outside but I have to pop out for a short
visit to get some more deli meat for the lads sarnies for work
but its a short trip as I have the choice of a few stores within
a 10min :driver: of my house ....want to see if the Food Bazaar
has any of the Delicious large red sweet plums they had last week
as my regular store said "oh no plum season is over" when I asked
the weekend talktohand so I said well I will have to go back
to where I got them then ,to which they said "oh then they must be
getting them from somewhere else " as I think Big Y gets its items
locally here in the area .....

Yes isn't Bond being masculine shoving his woman out to work
while he PARTIES

OK be back want to go while its not raining hard

Well it's been raining but it's just in the air now.....chilly though.

Been to .

Thanks for the breakfast Bond......so you cracked the whip and took her to work.....and you're out to lunch.

We don't see that much of Fergie or Andrew Carole, she was at Harry's wedding of course though she didn't sit with Andrew or the girls. and yes they live in the same house but not together. We're hearing the baby is due some time in the spring. Yes Harry's liked but nothing like how people like William & Kate. And sorry but Meghan isn't that popular, people just don't seem to have taken to her. confused2

Right got to go and pick up my car.....it's been in for a service and it's MOT. they've just phoned for me to pick it up.

Morning Bond ,its 545am here 1045am there
hope you got Mrs B off to "work" OK
Big news this morning on the TV is from
over there
cheers  looks like Harry has done his DUTY
as Duchess Megan is WITH CHILD
I figured they would be trying as she is getting
{as they used to say} long in the tooth ,she must be
at least 3 mths if the Palace announced it as so , so
lets see they married in April ,so assuming the deed was
done say in "June" she should be due NEXT April

I'm happy for Harry as he seems a nice lad ,Fergie looked
well at her daughters wedding and had I thought lost some weight no?
Her and the Prince are still living in the same "quarters" no although
not together ,come on Vicky your up on these things confused2

Well weather wise here its 51f in Bridgeport this will probably be
the warmest day of the week  getting up to the low 60's but with
scattered showers around ,as I see Thursday only has a HIGH of 49 degrees
so no going back to the 70's and 80's here

Anyway I shall just say I will be back and

GOOD MORNING LADIES ......under ground heating @ ...POSH Vicky
be no carpets in their bathroom then

I've got all the Harry Potter books as well.....and read them all.     I only watched a Harry Potter film last Christmas for the first time....on TV, I'd rather read the books then watch the film,  but it was on and David was watching so I saw half of it....though we did record a number of the films .....so we decided to watch one tonight.

No we don't have that programme Carole.   confused2

Oh Carole did you really think they'd go off for the weekend and leave the  catmilkbowl   of course they wouldn't.....

Rob's just been texting telling us about the footy match Matthew played....they won 3-2 but it should have been 4-2 but the opposition linesman didn't see the ball going about 3ft over the line i.....Rob said "What a cheat he was"  anyway Matthew's team hung on and won.  

Susan was saying they're having underfloor heating in their en-suite.

I remember when each Harry Potter book
came out when David was growing up,he
couldn't WAIT for each one to come out
and "speed read" them it seemed ....

Talking of other peoples "preferences"
do you guys get Long Island Medium
over their (I think Marge will know )

I was watching her last night and she was reading
a young guy who was a *drag queen* his mum
had past and it was the FIRST time I ever heard
of anyone saying they had lost someone with what Gil had
Corticobasil Degeneration that took away her motor skills

I knew there were others out there ,but as I said first time
I ever heard it mentioned

Glad someone was looking after kitty then Bond sounds
like it is well loved

Sleep tight people

Morning Marge ,glad your little
ducklings all got away and home safe
Mark who is sending me the city photos
said he thought your bad  weather was
coming from us Vicky ,so maybe that was the
last hurricane that hit the Carolinas

Glad your neighbor is taking care of that tree Marge
I wish the trees in my back garden could get
trimmed back ,it's worrying with their height
every time we get a storm as they hang over the deck
dangerous and that's not taking into account the MILLIONS
of leaves that fall ,trouble is these trees are on a large lot
behind our house that is probably city owned  so cannot complain
to our landlady on THIS one

Glad everything went well Margaret......had to smile at the picture of Jagger sitting on your knee eye eye  up Melanie.    They're so funny animals.

A good time was had by all then Bond.  

Yes Carole they do ask if you're always going off to the loo or overly tired as that is a sign.

Been nattering to Susan and then to ......  had been to James today, just got back, so she was cold and needed a hot drink.         Susan was telling me about the people taking things out of their skip.      I did think of you Carole. Smile

Ok back later.....

New avatar is Kirby Hall in Northampton. .....it is a ruin and very spooky,

Ian left on time and Melanie messaged me she
was home safe so its just me and the cats again.

It seems that now the thunder and lightning and
attendant rain have gone through we are expecting to
have higher temps this week with Santana Winds off
the desert.
This may be our Indian summer coming.

Most Japanese rainbow bridges and huge temple
gates are painted red traditionally. Its like a resting
place for your eyes in the beauty of the garden or
view.
Now that next doors weed shoots from the pepper
tree have been removed as part of the clean up
I have gained back about a 1/4 of my view on the
right side. They started on the young trees out
front as they needed trimming also.

Don't know when they will start on the Pepper tree
between our gardens next to my driveway but I hope
they warn me so I can move my cars out of the way.

I thanked my higher power for giving my cars a free
wash as they sure needed it! My BB looked like
it was in the Sahara for a month!
BR being the further from the tree was only dusty.
no bird poop or spider webs!
BB looked like she had been there for months, there
were so many tiny spider webs on her.
We drove about while the kids were here in their vehicles
not mine. Melanie's truck is huge with full car seating for
four people and a truck bed with a fitted metal cover on
it , it did not fit in most of the smaller parking lots like
Texas Lucy's but fit right in at the DIY hardware store.

Tabbitha took to Melanie straight away but Jagger kept
a bit of distance. Ian, they kept out of his way most of
the time but it did not stop them eating when they were
hungry.
Jagger would sit on my lap and stare at Melanie for the
longest time as if he was trying to remember her being here
before.
I am giving myself the rest of today off apart from a few
regular chores.
Its back to the grindstone tomorrow as the Roll away blind
man is due early to reattach the leg of the blind that has lost
a screw anchoring it to the wall.
The parts have come for BR, the sun visors and the front seat
belt part that the shoulder and lap belt fit into.
I am going to order floor mats next.
The original carpet is still in the car and looks very good
considering its age and I want to keep it that way.

It needs a service as the idle speed has dropped to the
point of dying waiting in traffic, its happened twice so far.
My old Plymouth Valiant used to do that, its just a case of
adjusting the idle speed again.

Its time for breakfast here and my daily pill dose.
TTFN

how long was the cat left
alone Bond ,all weekend
If that was the case no wonder it came
out head butting  to show you he missed
everyone Sad
Cats are not as sociable as dogs but they
do like to KNOW SOMEONE is there ...

Is that one of the signs then Vicky ?
Wendy has never smoked like me, and rarely
drinks if at all ,and as I said she is a life time WW
member so eats healthy ,a reason I could not
believe she was diagnosd  with it .
Told her to check back with the Dr if she does not
feel any better in a while

Done the shopper  so relaxing again as I feel  
like I am dragging MY butt today ,as I said good job
I am seeing my GP next week

When I got home Spencer was changing the oil
on Carmens car ,then he went back as she is hosting
a Tuppaware party today

Be back later

That's a sign of being diabetic Carole.....tiredness and weeing more......how's Wendy doing with her food? I know Sylvia used to eat things she shouldn't have eaten but then she smoked and drank more than she should have so her doctor just gave up trying to tell her.

Yes they're saying the worst floods in Wales for 30 years......just heard about a plane landing in Bristol (where Susan flies into when ever she's gone aboard) sideways after being caught up in the storm.

Benjie's only just gone out......it's slightly eased off.

Later.......doing fish for dinner.

Morning you too tired  I ACTUALLY Sleep
in until 730am ,,Buddy did not wake
me like he normally does ,in fact he was curled
up near my feet when I woke ,probably cos its cooler
now in the mornings even with the heat on as I only
keep it at 68f just to take the nip out the air

Yes very pretty gardens and bridge Vicky
And looks like you Bond have the day planned all
out ....

They are reporting again from Panama City in Florida
still dire down there food and water scarce no electricity
even though they have 1700 utility workers are down there
trying to restore power ,it looks like a bomb zone and they
still are not SURE just how MANY people are missing so
are having to go piles of rubble to  rubble searching for anyone
trapped ,its day 4 but the rescue worker with her golden lab
said they have found people in other disasters after 7 days ALIVE
so there is still HOPE

In the mean time neighboring towns are trying to help out bringing supplies
to this area to the people which always tugs at my ♥️ strings

Where is the bad weather YOUR getting coming from Vicky ?
as I see parts of Spain where a friend lives has been getting
it bad of late
Hope your family are OK Bond in Wales .....

My sister said she is feeling more tired and peeing more of late
whether this is from the new pills I do not know confused2
but says she will persevere....

Hope Melanie got back safe Marge also Ian
So all that is left for me to say is
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE and I shall be back

Just looked it up and it does look good.      Lots of fun.      Would have been an interesting place to take them on the occasions we were looking after Matthew & Laura.....and the few times we had Jack & Lily.  

It's still  it down......think it's a day in doors with my book. Still not took Benjie out......they are saying it's going to ease off so we're hoping .

Ah I see what you mean....you had me  "What's Bond seeing.....the garden is green"       confused2  Being an artist you'd know all about green bridges ....where as I ....don't. Smile

No not nice out there  I heard a guy was swept to his death in Brighton and a guy died in Cwmduad, Wales in a landslide due to the storm.     Dyfed (where my mate Janice lives) have no power.  And another guy died, again in Wales, after trying to rescue him from a Marina.

Jack & Lily (well it's Lily's really) have a trampoline in the back garden......Steve & Claire are hoping Lily will get fedup of it by next summer, it was bought for Lily by Claire's sister though Claire wasn't too happy about it.   Ok they've got a big garden but Claire & Steve say it still takes up too much room.
