The phrase, four seasons in one day, is a Scottish one, & so far spring has been like that here. Sometimes it's fine, sometimes it's wet, sometimes it's windy, & sometimes it's all of them!!! Like, how am I supposed to plan days out if I can't tell what the weather will be like in the next hour??? Make your mind up, weather!!!

I texted them about the issue as the fan outlet had just been installed. They were round the following afternoon fiddling on the roof (hopefully rainproofing the outlet). Hopefully it doesn't let any more rain in.
BC glad things with your mother are better xxx But so sorry for your shrimp xxx

BC hope your mood & your mother's mood both improve. Dealing with people is hard when you & they have so much going on xxx
Frostbite glad birb is well, though I understand their reaction to "pokey-proddy-smelly-folk" aka vets (some of the stuff they use has a distinct scent).

Anyway, I got a surprise prezzie!!! From somebody whose bd was quite recent!!! So in between craft meetup, which is good, & noisy coffee, which I was a bit late for, I've been making stuff for this person!!! TAX

BC busy you xxx
Squirmy busy you too, & your child not knowing a wheelbarrow has WHEELS??? And that's how you move it??? Methinx you need to have a talk...

So, painter came Monday, filled the gaps round the patchwork. Tuesday came before I went to coffee, dusted & painted by the time I was back from coffee. However, see Trivial Complaints...
Went to coffee, was good. Weather was good too, so went to local shops for some quick treats. Later went out to everything shop town. Was literally there for three shops so was quick. Weather got worse with wind & showers of heavy rain, like it was on & off but when it was on it was on full blast!!! Got home & this continued. Spent all but £14 of birthday cash, but that includes electricity for the meter which took half of it. Tesco (in everything shop town) was the only place I used my card, which helped a lot. Did get a few treats, as well as a little yarn. Did NOT find a second loaf tin of the right size, but one shop had a set of foil loaf tins which fit nicely, & bread when baked comes cleanly out of tins so that's great!!! Put wall ornaments back up & was planning to do more stuff today but Trivial Complaints (aka my fan outlet needs rainproofed).
Today knitting & crochet, In peace, unless somebody texts back re fan

Re the promises: I DID get all three!!! Folks came, dropping off £150!!! Then support worker, who had prezzies too & was able to take the old ladder AND the dead kettle!!! Then the person who promised me lunch!!! The lunch (her treat) was yummy & she also bought me a cake. I have the last of said cake to eat today. All in all not a bad bd. I also got loads of wishes online, including here (cheers xxx :grouphug: ), & the sharky server xxx
Re the workies: they didn't come on Wednesday but did on Thursday to take my ceiling & roof apart to fit the fan outlet in. They broke an ornament but it's not one I'm majorly worried about. The next day my fan was fitted back in. A decorator will be round on Monday. Meanwhile I've had to clean the floor, the bath, the curtain, & other stuff too, because the dust & debris went EVERYWHERE!!! And that's AFTER the workies swept up. I also have to touch up a wall again (doing that today; it's the one the broken ornament was hanging on). At least I haven't handed over my paint yet!!!
Re yarn: I completed a set!!! I'm working on two pieces to complete a second, & one of a third, as well as the last of my personal items. Everything is progressing nicely.
Not much else done, & the other main thing of note is a £20 gift card for the Co-op, which I use a lot so it will come in handy too.

Artie oh no!!! That's annoying xxx
Cheers Squirmy xxx

Well BC tell them the loot you're SUPPOSED to get is on hold & that's why you've been selling stuff... Go as far as showing them all the evidence & the claims you've been making to try & get your money back. Tell them the stuff you've sold makes the difference between eating & not eating, getting cleaning products & traps (for those ants) & not getting them, etc...
You're not rolling in it; you're using the selling money to survive. We ALL know this, time you told the rental people...

Minty you're right, that IS a nuts postage price!!! I hope you find a better one xxx

Shockponie, disabilities are NOT fun, & nobody should be insulting you for something you can't help xxx All the best in finding a new job with a more caring boss xxx

And the workies are in!!! I should have moved more stuff than I did, as I have a casualty of a broken wall ornament, fortunately I have some others to go up instead of that one...
They'll be at it today, tomorrow, & Monday...
Then I hope it will be all done!!!

Pony Corral / Re: Flocking: Yay or Nay?
« on: April 10, 2024, 01:42:43 AM »
If the flocking is good, keep it. If the Pony has a version without flocking, better to get that version than deflock, because some people like the flocking.
Having said that, sometimes flocking gets so bad you have to deflock, & with common SS Ponies this is ok, especially Ribbon, Best Wishes, or others who only came as SS (they look beautiful when properly done).
As Taffeta said, we never had flocked Ponies in the UK, so SS Ponies are new to us. We did have versions of some without flocking, like our Movie Stars & the Posey & CJ with Honeycomb's set, but we never had a single flocked Pony here, until the internet. But I like a good condition SS Pony like Scrumptious or Crumpet or Ribbon or Best Wishes or...

Made Tuesday, same weather issue as last week ie: sunny weekend & Monday, wet Tuesday. Coffee was good & I got a prezzie
Called the folks briefly, father has falsies & says it's a pain getting used to them. He'll be round today sometime...
Workies got in touch via text, popped round yesterday to say they'd be here today, I've unlocked my door but so far nothing but one van outside... Where is everybody???
Eclipse happened after sunset here so I didn't get to see it.
And I got a few more promises, but I don't trust any of them...
I stop being 49 after 6pm...

Beth I hope you & those who could see it enjoyed the eclipse!!!
BC take it easy xxx And I hope you get your post to your door xxx
