Good morning, just dropping in for a quickie. It's going to be a nice day, so I have to get out and grab it now. Thanks for the comments yesterday. A couple of things which you might be interested in following up, thanks to the eagle eyes of my readers.
Louise has posted a you tube link, courtesy of her nice young man Dave, on how to mount a penny farthing. I think this explains it beautifully. Looks like I would need to practice this on soft ground, I would probably fall off a few times, ha ha. Thanks Louise.
She also included a link to a post she wrote on her blog about a bike rally that she went to. It's a great article with pics. Take a look if you are interested. Thanks Louise for reminding me.
Hi PP. Regarding the rice pudding. At 13p a tin, I hardly think it's worth making it, the cost of the electricity. But now Frugalfishfinger has informed us that it has gone up to 22p, shock horror, maybe now is the time to get the slow cooker out again, and give it a try. The river you asked about, it's the River Trent which runs past my village in North Lincolnshire not far from Scunthorpe. It widens out and flows into the River Humber, then into the North Sea.
Hello Old She Dragon. My friend Julie took the photo of me sitting in the sun on my deckchair enjoying my free wine ha ha. The photo's I did of my frugal fashion show over the ten days leading up to 1000 posts, were all done with the timer. It takes several goes to get an acceptable picture.
I can't find who posted this link, but here goes. Thank you anyway. A woman in Stamford Lincolnshire has put up some posters where she lives asking people to stop throwing litter about. I think I could have recruited her into my army, ha ha. Seems she has upset some of her neighbours with her plain English. I can't believe that she didn't know the other meaning of 'the word'. Think she is a bit posh.
Before I dash. I've had a lovely email from Judy in Australia, she is having trouble posting a comment. I hear you Judy, thanks for your kind words. And welcome to all the new readers, glad you are here. We have just hit the 400 mark, whoopeeeee. I am chuffed.
Stopping now, must go out, don't want to waste the day. There is one more comment I must reply to, will do it later. Toodle pip.
