Not at all unreasonable Alie. Do you want something that is warm and cosy from the winter weather, or a summer retreat that could be away from this time of year, with Pimms and lemonade, the sound of children splashing around in the pool outside, and a holiday book to read whilst you put your feet up.....or something else?
Why don't we have a virtual cosy retreat round at Greatnan's then (is it ok if we invite ourselves round for lunch Greatnan?) What about a separate thread? Would a log fire be ok in your mountain retreat?
All welcome, when, even though it might get a bit crowded! I have just made a very large pan of chicken broth, packed with vegetables - very good in this weather. Bring your luges and you can slide down the hill behind the flat.
What an image - Gransnetters sliding down mountains! Where do you want these logs? Shall I put them on your balcony? Here's some home-made crusty bread to go with that chicken broth. Where do you keep the glasses Greatnan? I've got some brandy off a passing St Bernard dog.
One thing I have got plenty of - glasses of all shapes and sizes. I bought the flat fully furnished and equipped and they obviously liked a tipple or two! Wonder how the neighbours would feel if we lit a fire on the balcony?
Wouldn't walked you locked up for arson Greatnan! Does this thread need to park itself next to the Gransnet Grotto, so everyone can pop in and out as they choose, depending on whether they've had enough of Christmas cheer or want some relief from it
Definitely Andy Williams. Neil Diamond? John Denver? Some Country and Western? Brass Bands? Male voice choir? Gregorian Plain Chant? Great Hits of the 50's, 60's and 70s? And for me, 'Now you has jazz'.
