Being different to the rest, like this news here.
I’ve got a new job, so I’m bucking the trend as well, in my nifty new jacket. I managed to wangle one, as someone was lending me his so that I didn’t get soaked in the rain. But he needed his back, and told me to keep it safe, as they’re like gold dust. Quite a responsibiity to keep on watching a bright orange padded jacket, then going, ‘Phew’ when it’s still where you left it. So now I have my own one.
Mine’s yellow, and I work for the Buckingham Group, so will probably be walking the Corgi’s tomorrow, or getting handy with a mop and bucket, or if Madge wants a bit of dusting done, that’s where I come in.
You’ll see me coming in the dark, and it’s warm and waterproof as well. I’m the site cleaner, and I’m the one with the lipstick and mascara. I can come and go when I like, and the chaps are friendly so all I need now is the hard hat. I’ve got the muddy boots, so I’m in vogue. You have to be don’t you?
Me and Alan went a smashing walk through the woods today. The colours of the leaves are amazing, and dropping fast now. Great to see them before they all dissapear, something new to see everyday in the countryside.
I’ve been cooking, well, fair enough, salad isn’t cooking, but those pies are corned beef, mash and suede, carrots, peas, onions, spring onions. In puff pastry. Breaded garlic mushrooms and extra veg with salad. Easy peasy Sunday dinner, and tasty as well. Following on from my last post, I’m practising ready for when Hamish and Alice turn up next week. Remember, the characters from Patsy’s new book, Firestarter. I want to make sure there’s nice things to eat, so mm, yes they are lovely. Might even go and try another one to make sure. Can’t leave things to chance.
Call back soon to see how Hamish and Alice get on, can’t wait for that myself. Have a great week:))

Love the jacket, Susan. makes you look very official and important!
Ha ha, oh I am, Sally, it’s the way I swing the mop and slop the bucket, and walk the Corgi’s of course. Glad you called by.
Well done, good luck with the new job.
Thanks, Bea, it’s all good fun. I’ve got the jacket, so they want me to stay a bit longer.
Hope the new job goes well, Susan.
Thanks, Wendy, loving it so far, and it’s not far from home either. Glad you called by.
Well done on that new job, Suzy – you’ll be the glam one!
Ha, you’re kind, Rosemary, I try my best. It’s not often you’ll find me without the make up on. No, it’s hardly ever to be truthful. I like the lippy and mascara, and eyebrows. No excuse not to be glam is there? New job is great as well.
Very snazzy jacket, Suzy.
Not sure about the pies though. Think I should eat three or four just to check they’re OK.
Funny you should say that, I came home today and had one, then Alan said he wanted two. So to be polite I joined him and had another one. They were yummshious. Deffinitely on the menu when Alice and Hamish call by.
Not only ‘bucking the trend’ but ‘standing out in the crowd’, Sue! Glad you’re enjoying the new job. 🙂
Thanks, Jan. You can’t miss me in it can you? Glad to have it though, you can’t keep borrowing can you? Though the chap said if I want to borrow his anytime I can, but it was four sizes too big, so I wouldn’t.
Congratulations on the new job! Love the jacket! 🙂 xx
Thank you, Teresa, I’m quite proud of it myself. I’m one of the gang now:)) Glad you popped in xx
Just the thing to brighten up grey days like the one we’ve just had here – and waterproof is always useful!
Hi, Linda, yes, someone said to me yesterday when I got out of the car, “Look at you in your canary.” At least I blend in with all the others now. Glad you popped in.
