  1. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Cheers, I'll read the reviews.
  2. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Chuff, it's windy now. Cheers @dizzymoo, she's not frazzled now, applying for next year and enrolling on lots of things to keep her occupied. I'm glad to hear of your youngest one's progress, and hope your elder son finds a way through. Anyone been to Beatherder? I fancy a shorter festival next year and take the family too. Sorry, my bird brain is flitting on to anything that will distract from Winter coming on.

    When's this wind starting then? It's like a sepia print outside in the light here, too grey and misty.

    Yog, the diving sounds great fun. Excluding the vom. Mr G, not sure where we're going, except that it's on the North end, Pollença? I've got the details somewhere. We've been to Palma some years ago, so we'll see what the North end is like. The Filey trip is by my ma in law, who's booked a house for a week. And she's celebrating her 70th all this year, how cool is that? Congrats on the job too. Night all.

    Mallorca for 4 nights, then Filey! Where are you all going Mr g? Yog, glad you still got your van. Is that audio version with Richard Burton? #whoop.

    Cheers Yog, we're working on those good times, and they will merge into great times next weekend as we fly off for a break. Hope the evening's good for everyone, been a glorious weekend.

    Yes, it's been full on these past few weeks again. The eldest going to uni and then not (lack of support for Asperger's) MrsCJ recovering from her op (currently very hormonal) and now MrsCJ has bought tickets for a matinee performance of the youngest's dance show instead of the evening, so the night now resounds to gutteral Anglo Saxon from my wife, and the night is less well than it was. Anyway, really nice to hear of your move and new surroundings. Are you a Martian like Arrival, or Mars Attacks?
  8. Things that annoy you ?

    Hello! I know we've 'met' here previously but I am also in HMRC now and didn't twig you were too. (I'm at Shipley). I was in a meeting in Newcastle and someone had the pink lanyard on with their swipe cards,. Loads of nice people in Shipley, Newcastle and Telford, but I've never had to pretend to be professional for so long each day in a job.

    Suggested correction.
  10. Word Association Game

    Not the best idea but I thought of HORSES. Hope you're all well folks.

    Yog, thanks it is a great night, following some work on the allotment earlier today, making a curry from scratch (it included pomegranate, but not in any animal representation) and being driven to and from a cider festival. We're now enjoying some together time. On separate laptops. Pedantically, I'd have to highlight that tomatoes are botanically a fruit. Both of these are the cheapest and most hygienic to eat food off a complete stranger. So they say.
  12. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    But are you at those celebrations, or at home in your normal gear???
  13. Nick Cave

    He didn't begin till at least half 8 at Manchester and loads of people didn't arrive till after half 7. You should be fine.
  14. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Warm handshakes old son, that's a tough thing to find out for you and them. You look like you have a great old sons' support group, and there's always here too.

    Afternoon all, I've no Neil Diamond stories, but have been making sloe gin. Finally got the bathroom vinyl down* and completed the world's longest DIY project. FY and MrsFY, good luck with the smoozing, don't let them leave till they book 2 nights. *ie got the fitters in.
