Is that an eclair you're eating or are you just pleased to see me?

Twilight Albert watching the rain

85 comments  on the last post........and I hardly wrote anything...... Go figure.....sometimes I think there is no need to write anything profound ....just post a silly photo of yourself  perhaps in a pair of ill fitting underpants with a cat on your head and poof......more comments than you can shake a stick at...........anyhow this weekend is a sort of non event for me thanks to the new nhs electronic rota system who, in its wisdom now considers Sunday as the START of the week and not the end . Subsequently part timers like me often get given a Saturday shift from one week and a sunday shift from the next.....hey presto we now get all weekend to cover.........
It looks like the end of the world outside as the weather has turned.....I had just got back into bed, wet and shivering after letting the birds out when Chris informed me that there was another funeral in the Church today...the sheep  are grazing next to the Churchyard and need to be moved, the grave digger will be arriving in his lorry to cross the field anytime now....
What a shitty wet, nothing day.
POSTSCRIPT
well we've just had a sneaky jaunt to marks and Spencer's
And after some lunch we have had a crafty chocolate eclair in the car on the way home
I was driving and still managed to eat the eclair without holding on to it
Now that's skill!
Off to bed

  1. I had better get on with the dog walk then…if you have rain already it won't be long before it gets further east! Hope your day turns out better than you are thinking it will…..that often happens in my experience. X

  2. Go back to bed after shifting those sheep and snuggle down with four dry, clean dogs for the day.

  3. I think that is correct that Saturday is the last day of the week and Sunday the first. I don't remember where I read this (I have generally read all knowledge I have acquired over 52.4 years larf). Not sure if my grammar is correct as I haven't had breakfast yet.
    Enjoy the day if you can

  5. I just loved seeing Albert in the window. Sorry about your weather. Once you've moved the sheep, I suggest you stay in bed with natural hot water bottles around you. Jo PS I wondered why I liked our Mwanza Dentist: He looks like you!

  6. The rain has gone from here, hope it stays that way, the sky is blue but it is chilly. Ben has had his walk, his breakfast and is now sprawled over his crochet cushion snoring. I may have to join him.

  7. They will be burying the deceased in an oblong mud-coloured pond. Let's hope the coffin lid has been screwed down.

  8. I was also wondering about that comments thing.

  9. I think the sheep might be a nice touch for a send off...

    6:30a here and raining and still dark. I had to put the heat on this morning.

  11. Sorry it is such a shitty day for you John. You might feel better if you get up. You could phone a friend and have a chat with someone. The sun is shining here.

    1. The whole feel of the post changed with the change in title and the Postscript. I'm glad.

    2. PS I imagine you found the éclair pretty easy.

  12. The first time I was in Paris, someone gave me a calendar and I was surprised to see Monday as the first day of the week, instead of Sunday as the first day of the week. If you work Saturday and Sunday, have you done your shifts for two weeks?

  13. I hope your shitty day turns out better John. It is shitty here at the moment too! Why don't you make a nice cake for later if you get time? x

  14. A bad start and a grand finish...wait and see. It's cold, dull and dismal here as well with intermittent rain. But as the saying goes, a day is what you make of it.

  15. And on the 7th day God rested.....Our weather has dropped by 40 degrees so a good day for baking and nesting!

  16. ... as we know it, and I feel fine!!!!!!

  17. Not to rain on your parade, but I work every weekend... in fact I'm now in a 7 day stretch.

  19. I sent Howard out on a quick jaunt to the bakers. He came back with sausage rolls and cheese straws as well as other essentials. The Holtwhites sossie rolls are the only ones I will eat - a baby's arm worth of premium outdoor REARED pork sausage, wrapped in a sliver or luscious buttery flaky pastry, sprinkled with poppy seeds.

    Also been eating more than my fair share of brownies this weekend. There was a mini food fair on the square at Kings Cross station, meaning that for once it was worth lingering on it instead of it being an obstacle course with chicanes of tramps and smokers. Two different bakery stalls concentrating on brownies. Had the Maple syrup and caramelised bacon brownies from the Bad Brownie Co. stall with a coffee for a sluggish Saturday brekkie, and a walnut, almond and cinnamon with a bucket of tea whilst watching the rain.

    The plan to plug up the gaps in the wall in the lean to cupboard at the front on the house (a likely entry point for the mice) has been put on hold until tomorrow.

  20. We all get days like that, John. Make plans for a concert, or a night on the tiles and you will feel fine.

  21. I was going to ask if any of the creamy filling in the eclair squirted out onto you while you eating and driving, but then I realized that (1) the mental image was just too obscene and (2) you certainly would have told us about it if it had.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I find the same things with posts John. Put a picture of a cat on and I get loads of comments, put a serious post on and not many.

  23. One year I used a free calendar sent by a friend. Although I knew by looking at it the week began on Mondays, I appeared on Thursdays at more than a few Wednesday appointments before I pitched the calendar.

  24. A hands-free choc eclair? Whatever next? Hands-free Sco....NO! Will NOT say it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. i guess a picture IS worth a thousand words.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd bet you could post a picture of a stick on the ground without words and get 50 comments.
    I didn't think the British or Europeans ate in the car, that it was a US thing. When I lived in Germany I had a company car and used to leave bits of sandwich's in it. They were appalled.

  27. "just post a silly photo of yourself perhaps in a pair of ill fitting underpants with a cat on your head and poof"

    Sometimes your words confuse me

    "I had just got back into bed, wet and shivering after letting the birds out"

    Yes, your words do sometimes confuse me

  28. You're subliminally sending out messages to us by your blog or maybe you are just an ordinary/(or extraordinary) guy we can all relate to. We had our first cold spell of the fall and I'm not sure I like it though the day is sunny and bright. One of my barn cats was sleeping in a chicken nest and got locked up with the chickens last night. She couldn't stop cat talking when I let them out this morning. Guess all the hens clucking rubbed off on her.

  29. Well i'm not quite sure how you get so many comments as i seem to have to pull teeth to get a few. LOL! Hugs! deb

  30. I have the same problem as you with work days. I do four days a week. Sometimes there's not so much work, so I go to another office for two days a week. Now it's busy but I still have to do the two days at the other office. I make that 6 days work in 4 days.?

    As for the éclair thing: I don't believe you did that without getting chocolate or cream down your front.

  31. Albert is looking so sweet and comfy out of the wet.
    When I see your comments above a certain number I just pass and hope to catch the next one.
    85 wow !

    cheers, parsnip

  32. Please stop talking about eclairs! Next thing you know, I'm going to find myself in the bakery with one half-eaten and wondering how that happened ... and it will be all your fault!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Greetings to Albert. I too look out of the window during water cooler moments - not least because my desk runs across the window sill of my study. And what a world it is out there.

    Eclairs? Let's forget 'hand free', John. You probably stuffed it into your mouth in one fell swoop. But in the car? Can't you be civilized like me (read my post on marshmallows) and at least wait till you are home? I don't eat on the hoof. Or a tyre. Unless I am so starved my blood sugar levels give me signal that fainting is imminent.

  34. Sunday is the first day of the week, but Monday is the first day of the work week. I don't care what you put on your blog. I can't help enjoying anything you do.

    Love,

  35. Mmmmm choc eclair. When is that diet starting? 1.1.2015?

    By the way we are having an early summer, today 28deg & tomorrow 31! Mind you Tuesday is going back to 19.

  38. I hate when they mess with the work schedule. Glad you survived to eat your chocolate eclair!

  39. I've given up trying to figure out how the internet works.

  40. By the way, John, did you know that the number of comments includes your replies to the comments? Yesterday you replied to a good many of them :)

    1. That isn't to detract from the post in any way. We are all pretty much addicted to whatever you write. That's what happens with a good storyteller!

  41. A friend of mine was fined £100 for eating an ice cream whilst driving.

  42. Albert is looking settled in until the sun returns. Sorry you had a crappy work schedule making you work 2 weekend days back to back. Was your chocolate eclair magically suspended in air so you could eat it "hands free"? Here is something to cheer you up - Season 5 TWD is just ONE WEEK AWAY!!! It's supposed to be the most action packed episode Nick Tarantino ever made. If you get assigned to work the night of the premiere, I would call in sick. I hope the Terminus bad-asses do not recapture any of our boxcar prisoners once they get out of there. Will they be rescued by Carol, Tyrese or perhaps Beth will reappear in that car she drove away from the funeral home fire in. It would be awful to find out the Terminus group really are cannibals and the whole point of Terminus as a refuge was really to lure in their food supply with promises of a safe place to live. I do hope the Terminus staff meet a fitting end. Also, I just heard that AMC is likely going to have a spin-off of TWD, a prequel of sorts, featuring a totally different group of survivors who escape to a less walker ridden part of the country.
    Cheer up - your weekend went better than the person who funeral required that the sheep be moved. Something to consider.

  43. The weather turned in London too. It's freaking cold today, but at least it's sunny. I think the cat has the right idea, sitting on the windowsill and watching it all...but then, he didn't get to partake in the eclair, did he?

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love every post but rarely comment. Everyone else has said it all, this time I have to say I prefer a coffee eclair and have no trouble polishing off one while driving. The real challenge comes with a palmier, the flakey pastry is a killer and clogs the car for months.

I love comments and will now try very hard to reply to all of them
