Hello Owls and Larks.

What a blustery day it has been went for our walks this afternoon and even though the weather was cold and windswept the wonderful views across the dunes made up for it.Very Happy

Early to bed soon and fingers crossed no more weird dreams !

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams

Fennie's Avatar Morning Camilla and thanks for posting for the owls. Out like a candle last evening - a combination of the business racing away like a dicky heart and an afternoon spent with our leaving-for-Lanzerote friends in their lovely flat overlooking Cardiff Bay. I would hate to live in such a flat, hemmed in by security gates and entry phones and what not, despite the lovely views over the water, but, as a pied à terre, they like it and the rooms are of a good size. It is all new and everything works.

And the same today - even more printing - and despatching of orders and then we have a birthday lunch at 1pm at our neighbours with whom we are off to France next week. It is M's birthday and I have bought him a nice bottle of Burgundy and I shall give (although with the possibility of a return as their house is uncluttered like ours by books) a lovely book a present to me some years before called 'Billy Ruffian' which is the 'biography' of the famous 'Bellerophon' the ship that took Napoleon to St Helena and before that fought at Trafalgar and the Nile. Full of wonderfully interesting facts and stories.

I awoke this morning bang on 7.22, which thoughout my life from my school days when I used to have to get up and catch the 7.56 train, has been the time I feel that the day ought to start, though I am on occasions capable of sleeping until 9.00.
But there has been one change that has happened almost in the last few months. I am no longer avid for the day's news. I have given up caring. Perhaps it's because I cannot hear the radio very well, but somehow I seem to have heard it all before. Also because compared with the sixties, seventies, eighties the politicians are boring and shallow and frankly, silly. And the interviewers are not much better. Very HappyVery Happy

Withy Brook's Avatar As for me, I am fed up with depressing news and prefer not to hear it, especially early in the day!

Fairy Nuff's Avatar HO puts the news on first thing while he has his coffee, I wait until the back of elevenses then have a quick look a the BBC website... I often don't stay long on it.

I do hope that's not a cake on the chair, it looks a bit precarious. Blink
HO had a weird dream the night before last that we were driving over to Skye for our hols with the harp in its case on the back seat when it started to play by itself... it seemed to be a weird dream until I went to have a plonk last evening as found it had a broken string so probably went TWANNNNGGGG while we were asleep the night before hence the harp really was playing by itself.
Goes to show how real life can influence our sleeping thoughts. Laughing

Camilla's Avatar Morning All, or should I say Afternnon All.Very Happy

Had a disturbed night all due to a severe aching back tooth I shall hopefully be going back to my previous dentist where I used to live in Reepham if I can get a booking . Looked at the online web they have and see to have a tooth extracted is big bucks over a £100 ! Can't see how I can keep the tooth seeing as the large molar is loose anyway it is not going to refit itself on its own. Heavy rain here earlier this morning but met my daughter with her woofers and my Patch over the dunes leading down to the sea a tad bracing I can tell you and for the first time since last winter I wore my faux Russian hat along with my boots and parka, it was enough to freeze the cockles not that there many cockles on that beach.Very Happy

Rather taxing afternoon yesterday as HL had decided he was going to order me a new laptop he was on the phone without even asking me which model I wanted or indeed how many megabytes it had or any of the other that came with it or the colour. I wanted a red one and knew exactly what model I needed since speaking with my son last week he said which one was best for my needs. I had to practically remove the phone from his hand and apologise to the customer services that the one my HL has in mind was no good for me, ah stress!Rolling Eyes

As for the news loathe listening to it and always depressing so usually catch up on my App on iPad BBC.

Popped into our local post office yesterday and Jeannie the properietor told me about a very good English wine that has just come out and was on her shelves apparently it had good reviews and has even taken over from the French wines in the ratings and tastes like heaven but at £15 a bottle I shall have to put that on my special Christmas drinking list.Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar Indeed FNVery Happy can you refit the new string on your Harp or does it have to be done by a specialist ?

Posted by: Camilla on 14th Sep 2017 at 12:58PM

Fairy Nuff's Avatar They are quite easy to restring Camilla, she probably snaps between three to six strings a year. They are under tremendous strain, especially the higher ones that are much thinner too, they normally rouse us at night when they go as the twang brings you out of your stupor and you become aware of the rest of the strings resonating in harmony. Very Happy

Hope you got the lap top sorted out eventually.

Camilla's Avatar Oh that's good FN, as for twanging in the night could sound like Ghost might be playing it.Very Happy

Fennie's Avatar But maybe the harp was playing for a long time before the string broke. Roses still bloom inn the night.
