Yeeeees, we sort of heard they are not for you, BUT, um, we sort of need more persuading to get that thought into our minds. :^O

10 pairs of pink fluffy mules, size 11, on the way for your ... erm, "friend"..! 


 


As you don't like Gold Chocolate Coins, I shall, very generously, give you the change from my cat's pocket money. ( Miaow... hiss, spit, growl. ).  Oops, met with a little resistance there.  :_|

It's been such a grey, cold, damp day that I took a look at the weather forecast ~ possible snow, getting ever colder, and wind from East which is the worst possible direction, up here on the hill (in S/W Scotland).  :_|


Gathered in wood and coal for the living room 'stove' type fire, which really heats up the heart of the house, and it stops the Central Heating running constantly, and stops me having a nervous breakdown about the amount of Oil I'm running through. 


Now I can hardly move as my muscles have gone in the huff with me, after filling all the coal Buckets, and hauling in a huge trug of wood.  Very ouch.  Smiley Surprised :-(


The cats don't want to go out ~ not a good sign ~ so will use two huge cat litter trays, as the easterly wind, combined with the freezing cold, ices up and locks the cat flaps and there's always at least one cat trapped on the wrong side of the outer door. 


:_| Me no like winter :_|

As you may know, Walsall is world famous for its leather goods especially saddles. I only work in Bham, Saltley to be accurate, I was born and brought up in the `Black country` in a town called Tipton which is inbetween West Bromwich and Dudley. Used to be an industrial hotspot but now all manufacturing has gone.

Such lovely memories looking back, and amazing how even one word, sound, or smell, can bring so much back to mind, as if the years just floated away.:-x
