    5. It's a past passive tense of a past participle, including the non word "gotten". Excellent for ending a row and bringing on a nap, in my opinion. He'll be OK when he wakes.

    7. I'm surprised Rachel, whoever she is, has never picked you up on your strange habit of saying pants when you mean trousers.

    8. There's always a better word to use than *got*. My English teacher used to say 'give me no gets, give me no gots'. Bless you Olive Dunne....

    9. Be-Ami, I always supposed it was a gay word for trousers so let it go. Rachel

  10. It's funny. My man and I rarely argue any more. I think we've lost the energy. Easier for me, at least, just to say, "You know what? I think you are right."
    And so it goes.

  11. Definitely better had sooner than later! All out of the way now!

  13. Enjoy your snooze, I hope that Mary is somewhere safe from causing havoc though.

  14. Enjoy your nap. Me and my other half usually have a row on Christmas Day morning. At the time we are supposed to be leaving to get to my Mum's for Christmas dinner he decides to start getting ready and jumps in the shower!!!

  15. I shoveled the walk yet again this morning, hopefully the last time for a day or so. The kids across the street are sledding down the hill in front of us, no traffic ventures out.
    And now a nap.

    love, C .... a bloody American.

  19. Funnily enough the farmer and I almost had cross words this afternoon - a very rare event. And luckily we both managed to divert the occasion and so continued our unbroken record of never falling out in the twenty two years we have been married.

  20. We've done ours over for the season, too. Always a relief to get it off the list.

    Hope all is well in the home and peace reigns today.

  23. Is there a river near you for your annual row? I think it is great exercise in the fresh air and it's no wonder that you need to relax afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  24. We are in the middle of moving chaos...row, rowing, rowed, it's all happening here. Sigh. Hoping for a calm start to the new year.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Heavens sounds dramatic...I actually read it as row ( as in, row, row, row your boat ) initially. I did think it a bit odd to start with.

  26. awww theres George! Hes my favourite

    ReplyDelete
  27. HA! Here too, the dust is just settling... and we don't even Christmas.

  28. Knew just what you meant, take care, hug and kiss and make up.

  29. Which "row" do you mean? The one that rhymes with "cow" or the one that rhymes with "go"? I am guessing the first, unless there's an ancient tradition in Trelawnyd where villagers stand in a line (row)- possibly to sing Christmas carols?

    1. John and Chris were once in the same rowing squad as James Cracknell and Matthew Pinsent . T'was often said that they should have been selected for the Barcelona Olympic squad in their place however history was kind to them regardless. Tradition in the village ( well since 2006 ) is for Chris and John to show off their rowing skills but once a year. Crowds gather in awe outside their home, waiting for those Lycra-clad bodies to come out and demonstrate their still very evident talents along the local river in their aptly named boat, 'the Scottish egg'. That's what he means by ' Christmas row ' ....this seasons was particularly splendid .
