With which cartoon character do you most associate yourself? With me it has to be Eeyore. His sad and cynical approach to life is so appealing. Eeyore was created by A A Milne in the book Winnie-the-pooh in 1926. This pessimistic, gloomy, depressed, old, grey, stuffed donkey and I have a lot in common.
Don't tell anyone but the scheduling worked on this blog last night. I put the textures posting in a couple of days ago; mainly to remind me to post it on Friday. But, hey presto, it posted itself on schedule and was here when I got up on Friday morning. Let us hope this is not just a one off and thanks to everyone for their suggestions and comments as I have moaned about this issue at length. Especially Granny who tried so hard to find a solution for me.
My head is spinning. That is because I have just been doing some cooking. Why should cooking make my head spin? Because GB has a cooker hood and I have yet to learn how to avoid banging into it every time I go to stir the contents of a saucepan.
I went out for a walk to the Post Office this morning to post the ferry tickets to Jo. It is the tiny little white cabin in the middle of the above picture. You go through someone's garden gate to get to it. The Post Office is the only facility that can be found in Eagleton/Lower Bayble/Upper Bayble. Apart, that is, from a bus to take one into Stornoway where the other facilities are. It seems amazing in this day and age that a Post Office has survived in such a remote rural community. I'm sure that if this were in England the Post Office would have disappeared long ago. So congratulations to the powers-that-be for keeping it open.
Off to take the cookies out of the oven. Have a good week-end - bye.
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages. I am a happily married man in my late sixties who lives on the Wirral peninsula, near Liverpool, in the UK.
I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
