It's Been a While!

It has been such a long while since I last posted here, I guess you are all thinking that I will have lots of things to talk about.

Well I am sorry to say, that is not the case. How sad is that?

Things seem to moving very slowly in this part of the world. Nothing seems to be happening. On the other hand, perhaps that's a good thing. It would be awful if I had to tell you some really bad news.

There are two houses up for sale across the road. There were three, but one has been sold and the new people will be moving in very shortly. The lady who is leaving is really very nice and I am sure we are all going to miss seeing her smiling face. But life moves on and I know she is looking forward to living nearer to her family - especially her lovely granddaughter.

I don't think it will be long before the other two houses are sold, as there have been several people to view.

The other week I decided to clean my carpet. My that I didn't mean I was going to get down on my hands and knees and scrub like a maniac possessed. Nor did mean I had one of those super carpet cleaning gadgets tucked away in the cupboard. No none of that - what I used was, Vanish. A bag of white powder, which you sprinkle around your carpet and then brush in. You leave it for twenty mins or longer to dry before vacuuming it up.

I have to say it worked quite well considering how old the carpet is. Obviously it isn't going to be as good as having it cleaned more professionally, but it will do until another time.  As I said the carpet is old, and it is one of those foam backed things. Therefore I am not really sure how it would fare with something that used water??  Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

My friend and I went to Newcastle earlier this week. We had a good day and ended up as usual in the M&S Deli bar for a glass of white wine and a light lunch.

Last Sunday Phil and I went to our social club for Strawberry Tea. It really was very nice and we quite enjoyed it. The committee had laid on a very nice afternoon tea and a large bowl of strawberries to finish off. They even provided Pimms - extremely nice!

Nothing else to tell you at the moment, but before I sign off, could I just mention my website again... A few more visitors would be good - Eileen Thornton

Also I have just added myself to another book promotion site so perhaps you could stop off there sometime.  It's called - Quotes Rain  the link will take you to my page on the site, but from there you can look at other books and famous quotes.

I think that is all for the moment. I hope to be back very soon.

Chink Chink!
