Where has it gone? Just as I was about to start sprucing it up for the jubilee and start tatting the bunting?

I'll have one of those refreshing tisanes but no ice as it makes my teeth twinge right now. I really need to spend more money on toothpaste

Hugh could be part of our jubilee fete. Providing 'equipment' for the hoopla.
Ouch for the twingy teeth Jins. Have this oil of clove rub, hardly any alcohol at all, very numbing. Careful with it though its for your teeth only.

Jins Tue 22-May-12 15:22:41

Lovely. Oil of cloves always adds a certain je ne sais quoi to a tisane I find.

Sun's well over the yard arm. It will be time for a pre-dinner soiree soon no doubt

Yakbutter I am afraid I still have to guess your identity, you are much changed with the mustachios 'n all. < plus am a bit slow>

Oh dear have had wine and am building anxiety of guessing wrong. < pours more wine> is it B G. Or U.? Fuddled head emoticon.

What a lovely day.

I've put on my new bathing costume ready for some gentle paddling

Those laces are a bit tight though

Hullygully Wed 23-May-12 14:06:04

Jins darling how sweetly pretty you look. Who is the rather dashing chap in the stripes?

Jins Wed 23-May-12 14:09:53

Oh he's my paddling instructor. When I get a bit better at it he's going to teach me to wade


Hullygully Wed 23-May-12 14:11:29


That is so advanced. Take care, though, dear Jins. A lady should never let cold water near her frontal nethers.

Jins Wed 23-May-12 14:14:07

I did wonder about that. I intend to allow the water to mid calf, maybe knee height and no further. My lacings are there as a guide

Hullygully Wed 23-May-12 14:14:47

Very wise dear. Perhaps fashion some sort of rubber wear to be safe?

Jins Wed 23-May-12 14:16:10

I'll get tatting. It's going to take me a while to master paddling if I'm honest. I'm clinging to him for dear life.

Ladies! Don't you find all this swimwear rather racy...

Hullygully Fri 25-May-12 08:44:45

I am tatting an enormous cover for the sea. It just seems somehow so wet and shiny and immodest in its vasty expanses. <tatts furiously>

Minimammoth Fri 25-May-12 09:06:36

The tatted 'cosi can be a bit chilly for northern waters I have found. I have heard it is very good for the circulation.....when it eventually returns.
Hully don't forget to tatt covers for the ice burgs you may well be tatting an antidote to global warming

Fiderer Sun 27-May-12 08:40:20

I should tatt faster Hully. All sorts of forrin dangers lurk around the bathing machine.

True, Yak. Our beloved tisanes and possets contain all that is necessary for a healthy and wholesome life. I hear the forrin tequila fluid is so deficient in vitamins and minerals that one must imbibe a lime slice and a handful of salt at the same time just to remain upright. Or did I hear that wrong?

<fans self at forrin incompetence>
