Mr Right


I didn't get him a Valentine's day card
He sent me a Marks & Spencer's one
With
From Mrs Right
Inside.....
( I guess Marks and Spencer's haven't yet got their heads
Around Mr & Mr Valentine's Day Cards )
I made amends
And stopped any  further sulking by making a banana loaf with custard this afternoon.

I am spent up this morning,
Had to take William to the vets regarding his skin irritation
£ 75 and not even the  George Clooney vet to make goo goo eyes at
Pah!

Blustery and exceedingly wet here today
I've lost 7 followers in a week
Perhaps I'm talking about the weather too much!

  3. We didn't really bother this year. I think we were both too wrapped up in me having the remaining cysts gouged out of my head this morning to remember it. Anyway - there was enough chocolate in the house to be getting on with. Will stock up on payday Monday week, when some of the specials in Hotel Chocolat may be reduced.

  4. It's hard not to talk about the weather when it invades your life to the extreme. Google wants to put falling snowflakes on most of my pictures.

    I bet you could get your cards online.

    1. I just can't be arsed with valentine's day
      Never have really bothered with it....
      I prefer to show my affection by food!, deed and scrubbing the toilet

      Delete
    2. Scrubbing the toilet is a WONDERFUl show of affection. As is cleaning up digestic upsets/mishaps shared by the animals.

  5. the followers you lost were either (a) idiots or (b) spammers. no big deal.

  6. I enjoy your blog very much and I love the chicken photo on your title page. Is there a way I can find a copy of it? I think you should visit a castle and post about it. It would relieve my overwhelming desire to fun away to the UK despite my husband's fear of flying! P.S. Do you have a great Yorkshire Pudding recipe?

    2. Thanks! As a retired teacher, I have to say that I agree wholeheartedly with today's post on Prince and Princess children. They were always a pain in the a$$ to teach. Their parents were bigger ones.

  8. Plus one more follower today! I love reading the blog daily about your and Chris's life in Trelawnyd and the crazy capers of George, the dogs and the rest of the farm life.

  9. Ha ha ha we had 2 huge rib eye steaks but I couldn't eat much of mine as I had undercooked them so this morning the chickens got it....they go crazy for meat.
    When I joined Pinterest I got lots of followers although strangely most of them weren't wearing many clothes....however they have mostly gone and now....all for the best I feel.

  11. This was to be our first Valentine's Day together since 2001, but when Miss Chef's former boss texted to ask if she could work, I realized I really didn't care. It's a total non-starter. Though I did get her some chocolates anyway. The good relationships don't care what the card companies tell us about love.

  12. Commercialized twaddle if you ask me.
    Chris is cooking me a meal tonight for my birthday (12th)..can't beat having a meal cooked for you...though I wouldn't refuse if he offered to do the ironing instead.

  13. We "missed" Valentine as we'd just had my bd (also low-key as we were traveling inter-Africa) and as we have Grant's tomorrow. The followers you lost are the losers, John. You're the best! xxx

  15. Well I'm not leaving you!! We don't do the Valentine's thing but after a crap 12 months decided we should make the effort. All the mushy cards made we want to barf. Then I saw it. A card proclaiming "You're a knob but I like you really". It has pride of place by the TV. The weather is a bit all encompassing at the moment. I'm probably boring people by talking about my knitting and crochet projects. You can't win x

    1. A gay card would be

  16. I am still following from here in snowy Canada!

    Those followers who left just did not realise what they are missing.

    As for Valentine's Day, well, a lovely card was received, as well as a peck on the way out the door last night as he left for one of his weekly football “can not be missed under any circumstances” matches. So I was left alone last night. Not even sure his team won their match! Ain't love grand? LOL

  17. If you like I will make up for those seven followers by following you seven times each day - does that count?
    The farmer and Valentine cards are never to be mentioned in the same sentence - but he is definitely Mr Right = and I tell him so frequently.

  18. Please continue with the weather updates. Not only do I worry about you and your neighbors, it's comforting that as I sit watching the snow fall on the foot and a half we already have, I can tell myself that at least it's not rain.
    (The first two blogs that I check first thing each day are yours and our Hippo friend. Both fascinating)

  19. Poor William. Get better soon. Maybe it is stress eczema (cant spell that), from Winnie flashing about provocatively, he didn't have any fivers to put in her pants...?

    As for valentines day, pah!

    I learnt how to follow this week as I have been using a kindle as my laptop went blue screen. I learnt that the google oblong above all the people who follow was a button... Who knew! lol so you gained me and lost some others. maybe it is my fault

  27. I think you talk about the walking dead and the baking programme wayyyy more than you talk about the weather! The people who unfollowed you are probably closet homophobes anyway. I think you're great!

  31. John dude,

    The losing of followers and I hate the word, "followers", is no big deal. Besides, follower totals is totally misleading, anyway. I'm riveted to your must-read postings.

    How's the weather, right now, my friend? Look forward to your reply.

    Gary :)

      Oh I know
      But it's the " not knowing ins" that bugs me just a little
      If there was a box saying
      " you're boring me"
      That could be ticked
      I d love it
      Then I could really bitch them out!
      Tee hee

  32. They must be pretty boring people if they think your blog is boring, John. Everyone was talking about the weather because it's been so crazy this past week.
    Have a quiet Sunday, John. ♥
