    Ive noticed a problem with the original thread, taking me to page 1 of the thread. Assuming its the same problem as my original Brexit thread (stolen by WMC lol) that there were too many pages, i have started another weather thread (stolen from lightbodyae55 lol).

    The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.
    Anything i post over three lines long please assume it is an article lol.

    @Tharg  So glad that Mrs T has been promptly admitted and diagnosed and treated so swiftly. I hope Recovery is as swift. Best wishes to you both at this time.

    Hi everybody. Delighted to say that Madam T has effected escape from Worthing Colditz. All bits mending very well, both surgeons and physios could not believe a 70+ yr old can recover like a 20-yr-old until she described her exercise routine. Absolutely wonderful to have her safe at home and free from dangers of Covid and the endemic Worthing Hospital pneumonia. Again, thank you all for your encouragement and support. Bloody marvellous!!!

    It is bloody marvellous!!!  So glad for you both.  When you said before that she weighed 6 stone I imagined she’s be ‘frail’, but clearly not! 🙂

    Are you spoiling her with all her favourite meals?

    @Georgie Dear Miz G… first I want to send a personal thank-you to you. The support and sympathy of everyone has been brilliant. Without you telling ’em, very few would have known. So, Georgie, a million thanks. Owe you one, seriously!

    “Frail” might be a description for 6st. in some. In Madam, “wiry” and “honed” are more accurate. She has the condition known as Ehlers Danlos, otherwise “hyper mobility”. Can be very damaging but, with correct exercise routine, can be managed and makes the body very fit and able to cope better with other conditions. Girls with ED tend to have a very slight build and often end up as magician’s assistants because they can fold themselves inside the cut-the-woman-in-half box.

    So, yes, rolling out all the fave scoffs. Starting tonight with Crispy Duck with pancakes. Not by me this one. Too complicated for home cooking – straight out of the Waitrose box!

    Tharg there is nothing like returning to your own house with the one you love especially after leaving hospital.

    Have a great night and even though Mrs Tharg looks like an magicians assistant after a trick thats gone wrong take it easy with her for a few days before you get her to start the housework again lol.

    Great news Tharg. It’s great when you escape Colditz and family have you back at home.

    No worries, Tharg.  I think a lot of people here have ‘known’ you longer than I have, so I figured they’d want to know.  Can’t expect everyone else to follow our more ridiculous ramblings on the ‘Weather’ Thread. 🙂

    Good choice with the Crispy Duck.  I’m making Nasi Goreng tonight using their Asian Spicy Fried Chicken.

    Brydo/Joss – thanks so much, your good wishes really, really appreciated. Gave me a lift when I seriously needed one. I could suggest the housework thing but it would end up with me wearing a broom, and probably a hoover, in a very unfortunate and painful place!

    Her recovery capabilities quite shocked the physio’s etc. Was told, if “normal” for age, weight etc. she would have been in Colditz for another week or two and then be sent to a rehab centre for another fortnight. Thank the gods we’ve been spared that.

    Menus continue to centre on most-loved scoff: pizzocheri tonight; jerk chicken tomorrow/Friday and roast chicken with all the bits, bacon, bread sauce etc. over weekend.

    Sorry to have gone light-years off-topic. So, weather crap – bleurgh – got soaked to skin going to butchers for chicken et al.

    What a grey day.  Not raining at the moment, so I nipped out to feed the birds and reload the squirrel feeder about ten minutes ago.  Garden now swarming with birds, which gives me something to watch while drinking tea and scoffing marmitey toast, listening to ‘Revolver’. 🙂

    I do believe ‘Eleanor Rigby’ is the perfect song.

    Grey. Wet. Cold(-ish). Meh. Aside from that thing going well(-ish). Madam recovering, slowly. Getting everything to normal is a long, gradual thing. Working on it…

    Revolver! E Rigby? Well, now you’ve started something. I listen to Revolver and Sgt Pepper more than any other LPs. Rigby is certainly one of the best popular songs ever written. Barbara Dickson does a stunning version on “Nothing’s Gonna Change My World” album. It will make you cry! Can’t say whether it is the best song because my list ain’t finished.

    In a rash moment I decided that it might be fun to come up with a list of the top ten popular songs ever written. Well, I got a short list of over 50 now. Rigby is definitely in top five with Bridge Over Troubled Water, Blackbird. I don’t restrict myself to stuff from my youth. Gone back to the 30s/40s. Cole Porter and Gershwin and Hoagy Carmichael did some brilliant work. At moment the latter’s Stardust is at number one. McCartney is the problem in finishing the list – I keep discovering obscure lyric pieces tucked away in different places. I Will, Rocky Racoon, Honey Pie and more.

    Very, very wet. Only good thing being a couple of spectacular double rainbows this a.m. Clocks gone back. Night happening earlier. Very depressing. Oh well, at least Madam T is improving – now we have sorted out the heart arrythmia (150bpm) (directly caused by hospital incompetence) and the totally wrong dietary advice (directly caused by hospital etc.) which would have put her back in hospital. Aaah. Our wonderful NHS – how would we live without it? Probably a bit bluddy longer!

    Very nice Sunrise this morning – not a cloud in the sky.

    Spent the last three days on Co-codamol.  Felt okay this morning so took full ‘recycling’ box from the kitchen and emptied it into the Recycling wheelie-bin, when I noticed that even after 2 weeks the recycling bin is still less then a quarter full – very unusual for us.

    Husband went out to fill the Garden Waste wheelie-bin after lunch and discovered why the Recycling bin is only a quarter full.

    Now banished to the sitting-room with firm instructions to just sit and watch the telly.

    Anyone else watching ‘Deadwind’ on Netflix?

    Similar weather here, Georgie. Fairly bright all day. Will be well chilly tonight if cloud holds off.

    Have not watched Deadwind, but only because it’s on Netflix, which we do not have. Have a pretty big stock of foreign drama to catch up on: All 4 have recently put up two Russian dramas which sound interesting; just finished watching the excellent 23 Cases, one of the German Tatort cop shows on All 4; also have The Same Sky (German), Beyond Appearances (French) to watch. Tried DNA from BBC4, not sure whether to stick with it. Looking forward to The Same Sky because it features Sofia Helin who is a cracking actor.

    Nice this morning, bar a brief shower around 10:30.

    Still mostly zonked on co-cods at the mo.

    Kinda hooked on Scandi Crime Dramas, me.  Started with ‘Wallander’ (Malmo), then ‘Spiral’/ ‘Engrenages’ (Paris), ‘The Killing’/’Forbrydensen’ (Copenhagen), ‘The Bridge’/ ‘Bron’/ ‘Broen’ (Copenhagen and Malmo), now ‘Deadwind’/ ‘Karppi’ . . .

    I didn’t like ‘Borgen’ – all politics and no murder. 🙂

    Pretty but cold a.m. Now entirely mixed, some downpours, some brightness. Glad it’s not just us who like the subtitles stuff. Got hooked with Beeb 4 showing Montalbano. Wonderful series, glorious to look at and wildly eccentric stories with a good dollop of humour. Scandiwegian stuff no so scenic – very dark all the time. Nevertheless good tales, mostly. Best we’ve found is German “Tatort” long varied series of cop stories. Plus the Belgian stuff – “Professor T” is eccentric and excellent and, if it gets broadcast again, “The Outlaws” is amazing – about a family of sisters who want to kill the husband of one of them. Darkest, funniest and most entertaining telly we’ve seen for a long time – as, indeed, are most Belgian shows.

    Last time I went to Germany (12-ish years ago) I watched a series about a crime-solving Nun, aided by her Novice.  All in German (which I don’t speak) with no English subtitles.  Kinda had to make the story up as it went along but it was still really good!  There was another show where the ‘hero’ seemed to be a long-haired German Shepherd dog.  Also watched ‘MacGyver’ in German, but not understanding a word didn’t really make any difference. 🙂

    I don’t know whether the hotel TV was just tuned into the ‘Crime Channel’ or if they just really like crime dramas over there.  For some reason, on the same channel, the Friday midnight movie was ‘The Others’ – in English.  I love that film.

    Sounds like your hotel telly was showing back-to-back “Tatort” shows. The title is a generic thing covering hundreds of short series about police work. Insp Borowski is one of the most well known, good too. Tatort has been doing stuff since as early as the 70s. All 4 do a few of them; all v good.

    Today I stopped taking the cocodamol.  4 days to get it out of system and then, maybe, I’ll get to go out next week (if it stops raining).  It’s been almost a month since I’ve been any further than the bird table.  Something to look forward to.

    If I’m really lucky they will have emptied the British Heart Foundation book collection point.

    Ho.  Ho.

    I’ve had a shopping bag full of books I’ve been try to give them in the boot of my car for almost a year!

    Good luck with dumping nasty drug out of system. Pretty crap weather for getting out and about but, dammit, once in a while jumping into, well, getting slowly inside, one’s Golf or Silly Mini and just pootling about is a thing worth doing no matter what the weather. Enjoy!

    BTW the “Today I…” thread has awoken recently. See you there I’m sure.

    It usually takes 2 days to leave my system, but I give it at least 3 days.  Weather forecast suggests better weather from Tuesday, so fingers crossed.

    We are in for a very windy day as winds in excess of 60mph are forecast, heavy rain is also on the cards so a day in watching telly is likely.

    Yup. Same here, Brydo. Cold (car says 11C). Dead windy. Downpourville right now. Nasty sharp rain coming in horizontally. Bleurgh!

    Cold, wet and windy.  Hope it clears for my drive on Tuesday, because it looks like England might be having another Lock-down from Wednesday!
