Its been a while since notso corner was in use, maybe now would be a good time.

Quiet corners are about all I am up for this weekend. Just been lounging at the bottom of the garden with a sun lounger mattress on the overgrown gravel path - the most sheltered spot. Just enough room for me between the parsley and the geranium. Always up for some drop scones/ pancakes/ crumpets/ welsh cakes etc. I have lots of slightly runny but tasty marmalade I could bring smile

anma Please do! Anything goes...the more outragious, the better! grin
jeniDid you say nice quiet sane sensible company? Where's Bags when we need her? grin

Bags Sat 12-May-12 15:29:00

I don't think you should go impplying things like that, soop! What about my reputation?!?! wink

soop Sat 12-May-12 15:34:18

AH! I knew that on learning that I was taking your name in vain, you'd leap out from behind a flowering shrub, Bags

jeni Sat 12-May-12 15:37:40

bagsit precedes you!

soop Sat 12-May-12 15:39:12

titter, giggle, splutter!!!

jeni Sat 12-May-12 15:41:49

Well, it shows how desparately I am when I start calling you mob sane!

Bags Sat 12-May-12 15:41:57

grin Wondering what it looks like now.....?

Don't go there!!!!! shock

soop Sat 12-May-12 15:47:26

Never, never, ever refer to me as being sane...I wouldn't recognise myself! I prefer being considered borderline quirky that's quaint wink

anma Sat 12-May-12 17:19:39

anma Sat 12-May-12 19:14:13

jeni Sat 12-May-12 19:20:34

It's areal 'cool' area isn't it?or innit?

harrigran Sat 12-May-12 19:25:26

Shove over I am coming in. Ye Gods I am exhausted after a day with GC. My legs are aching from running up and down stairs.

Anagram Sat 12-May-12 19:34:54

You should try coming down the stairs on your bum, like my GCs do, harrigran!

Anagram Sat 12-May-12 19:36:04

Just realised there shouldn't be an 's' after GC! blush

jeni Sat 12-May-12 19:46:43

I think you are tired. The kettles on or would you preferwine I have a rather nice Brunello here?

Anagram Sat 12-May-12 19:50:45

I think I deserve a glass of wine, jeni, after the day I've had!

What about you, harrigran?

Bags Sat 12-May-12 20:04:47

I'm coming in for a little soothingness. I'm very rarely fed up with shit stuff life throws at me, but I am just now. I'm sure the quiet corner will effect a cure. I'll just sit and people watch if that's OK.

Bags Sat 12-May-12 20:05:49

Hope your birthday was enjoyable, for all the running about, harri, amd yours too, gally.

Anagram Sat 12-May-12 20:15:15

Sympathy, Bags....
Have a cup of tea.

glassortwo Sat 12-May-12 20:15:40

Sorry about my Pjs and slippers but DH has walked my legs off in Town and I need a sit down and a glass of wine ahhh thats better. Lasagna prepared earlier and now warming up in the oven, so I can enjoy 5 mins peace and quiet.

glassortwo Sat 12-May-12 20:17:03
