Bumming Chips

The lounge....the kitchen doesn't look much better! 

 The workmen have given themselves until late evening tomorrow to install our new heating system, which seems a huge job to me. Having three workmen in the cottage has been a trial today, so at the height of the bedlam Winnie and I took ourselves to the pub.
There was no one there for the first couple of hours , so we had a pub lunch, several pints of Diet Coke and the landlady all to ourselves.

Watching the diners

Later in the afternoon , two Lancashire couples came in for a meal and Winnie managed to wander over to their table to say hello.
By the time I had got up from my sofa by the fire, she had managed to beg two chips and what suspiciously looked like a croquet potato out of them.

  2. Oil-filled radiators are good; keep it ticking over all night and at least you will have a bit of warmth to get up to in the morningxx

  4. Bless Winnie - of course she manages to look half starved, and has that "Nobody ever feeds me " look about her ! Who could resist her !
    One of our one Labs is a world master at cadging food, and last year on holiday, in a restaurant in France, she managed to "help" a couple eat a huge bowl of chips. She just sat there and gazed at them with her big brown eyes....so much for her diet !

  5. I had to google "croquet potato". They look even more amazing than scotch eggs. Must make immediately.

  6. I love that you can take your dog into pub over there. Wish we could too.
    Winnie is such a love, I probably would have given her my lunch if she wanted it. But that would probably have gotten in trouble with you. Who could resist her?!

  9. I imagine the Lancashire couples wide-eyed and trembling with fear as they held out tidbits for The Beast from Trelawnyd. It's surprising they had chips and potato croquets as I understood that folk from Lancashire only eat offal.

  12. She is incredible. How did you managed to take her away not from one but from 3 irresistible workmen? As far as getting chips or whatever else she could charmed the potatoes off the table if she puts her mind to it.Who could resist that face and those eyes?

  20. Oh John, your lovely cottage! Hopefully it will all be back to normal..and much cozier, soon. You know...maybe they could have installed central AC while they re at it? Remember how hot it was not so long ago.

  21. I sympathise; I've got a carpenter in at the moment. He'll be with us for at least a week..... it's never ending.

  22. Uf. I would have moved into the pub until they were done! I wonder if Winnie could beg you a Scotch egg next time.

  23. Oh no wonder you are feeling down - what a bomb site indeed. Just do what's absolutely necessary for yourself and the animals and wait for them to go before attempting to start the clean-up. It will seem like heaven to get your pretty cottage back to how it was - but with warmth, too.

  24. I thought you were continuing the codpiece theme for a while. Any chance of some builder's cleavage shots?

  25. It's lucky your village pub is just around the corner. I walked the streets of Llandudno, Llanrwst and other areas when a lot of our work was going on. Or I just holed myself upstairs with the computer and the dogs, who used every brewing up opportunity to try and beg off the builders.
