I have popped in and out this week, posted a few little msgs,and have lurked and read quite a few posts, and have noticed things seem to have got a little fraught this week....

DH in bed, cats asleep, tv off!

soooo I thought a few glasses of wine brew and cupcake for anyone driving/tea total smile

The wine is on the left as you walk in, brew and [cupcakes] on the right, coffee is in the perculator next to the microwave, just help yourselves, plenty of soft seating and cushions scattered around, some nibbles on the table.....




should be enough to go round smile

enjoy your evening, tomorrow is a new day gringrin

Thank you, biker, I will pass on the cakes as I don't eat them, but I help myself to a glass of wine.

That's very kind of you biker and so thoughtful. I'll just have a [cuppa] and a sit down in a peaceful,quiet corner, thank you smile

Cheers Biker! A long time ago I read an expression of someone having a difficult time as swimming in blancmange. Having a blancmange day/week has slid into our family parlance. I've had a blancmange week and your offer is just what I need. Thanks. [chocolates] emoticon.

Love the way the moon reflects on the pond from the summer house. And this Pinot just hits the spot wonderfully.

whenim64 Fri 31-Aug-12 21:22:37

This is nice smile. We haven't done this for a while, have we? Anyone else coming up the path?

baublesbanglesandb Fri 31-Aug-12 21:22:56

Thank you, a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake is just what I need. Then I'll find a cosy chair in a quiet corner and meditate for ten minutes. Enjoy the rest of the evening. flowers

Looks like one of your neighbours, biker......shall we ask him in? Or do you think he'd be a bit scared? confused
