  1. Move to Buxton in wonderful Derbyshire is complete, well all our stuff is in the house. Some work for Mrs B and me to get some semblance of order. The main problem at the moment seems to be locating something you have seen amoungst the boxes but can't remember where?

     

    Still at least the snow has arrived to greet us!

  2. Had a rather joyous, albeit temporary dream last night that Hornby announced an LNER E4 - wishful thinking, or a premonition?

      A Precedent does have the pretty/collectible factor - an E4 has a more bucolic/‘cute’ look to it though. Fingers crossed - as I have been doing for the last few years!

      Sounds like a good set of presents there. I did the Jacobite back in 2018, worth every penny! Enjoy.

  5. Getting a new phone is supposed to be a pleasurable experience. iTunes makes it the most frustrating experience from hell.

      Make a backup of your iPhone on your iCloud, and then when you're setting up your new phone, hold the two phones in close proximity - the new iPhone will then be set up using the iCloud back up of your old phone. Plenty of Youtube tutorials if that makes no sense, it takes literally 2 minutes and is easier than faffing with iTunes.

      Know what you mean, always get frustrated and put off for ages afterwards.

  9. has just been told to "Fix some eggs". looks like it's gonna be one hell of a day.

  10. When the seagulls follow the trawler it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea..

  11. Anyone tried the new Greggs vegan sausage roll yet.

    1. NXEA!

      NXEA!

      Because meat is delicious, and in making alternatives there is an element of inclusion for vegans - I say this as someone who has recently gone vegan. Even if you no longer eat meat, you should be able to eat something that looks and tastes similar, especially if its a common food item that you previously enjoyed eating.

  13. This vegan lark is a bit hard - I miss Stilton. On the plus side, feeling the benefits after a couple of weeks now.

      Not tried them yet, although I will be!

  15. just found out our 6 month old kitten got run over while we away...sad times

    1. NXEA!

      NXEA!

      That's very sad. I lost my cat that I've owned since I was 5 the same way, so like Londontram, I know how you feel. Thoughts are with you and your family.

  16. Changing the toilet seat is now my least favourite household chore.

    1. NXEA!

      NXEA!

      Hadn't changed them since we moved in, has been on the to-do list. Dirty business indeed. Bolts were completely rusted so spent 30 mins smashing the hinges on both seats with a hammer to weaken them enough to pull out with the claw. Previous least favourite chore was taking out the bins, but that is a joy in comparison.

  20. To slightly bodge or to go all out and totally bodge it.

  21. First sighting of a red kite right over our house. They've been encroaching into South Wales from Brecon for some while but not yet seen one right over head - until now!

  22. Phew - for a while there I thought my invisible ink had worn off

  23. Two of my Tortoise point motors have gone kaput at the same time. Any suggestions?

  24. Well, I've just voted in the Wish List poll, but only for the cute, small stuff, mind.

    1. NXEA!

      NXEA!

      I second, Hroth, I hope you’ve voted for the E4. That is top of my personal wish-list.

  25. I would love one of the Locomotion GNR Atlantics in BR Black. Not for 280 sheets though. Looks like I’m a bit late to the party on that one!

    1. NXEA!

      NXEA!

      Locomotion are still selling Green ones for £179, but I wouldn’t trust myself to make a decent fist of respraying one!
