Ben's Buddies

Squiggle, I'm glad your weather is a lot calmer than it was

 

Coming back from doing my routine shopping I stopped at a set of traffic lights behind a white van waiting to turn right. I noticed that the van's position was a bit crooked. When the lights turned green the van started off but I noticed that the brake lights came on just for a second. Van and I went on to a double mini roundabout. At the first roundabout one goes left or forward to the second. At the second one goes forward (my route) or turn right.

 

I was a bit wary of the van and rightly so. At the first roundabout (the van's indicator lights were correct) the van attempted to go round the roundabout to return the way it had come. But it didn't succeed. So it did a short reversal forcing me to reverse (luckily no vehicle behind me and I wasn't right behind the van) and then the van driver succeeded at the second attempt.

Bit more info the Tewkesbury water leak. The leak occurred in a 36" pipe, one of the major pipes there. It's under a field by a golf course which is flooded as it's so close to the river Severn. That's making it very difficult for the engineers. It sounds as if it's going to take quite some time.

Evening all. 

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the Strictly final 

Squiggle, it was a big relief when my car passed.

Moonie, we’ll done on finishing your Xmas shopping. I’m waiting on a parcel arriving so I can post things off. It’s already 2days late

I’m still over the moon about the winners  

what are you watching now? 

I just found out that one of my friends got a puppy yesterday! 

 I’m very, very happy.

I’m not really watching anything.

Yay, what sort of pup have they got?👏🏻

Yes I think she’ll be a bundle of energy lol my friend has been through some terrible depression these last couple of years though so I do think this pup could bring her a new lease of life  

 

hows keira? And what are you up to tomorrow? 

The pup might be just perfect for your friend - something to love and will love her in return, and put a smile on her face.

 

Keira is okay, and her hearing has returned a little bit.

No plans for tomorrow, what about you?

Yay well done keira 👏🐶😍 hows her skin? 

 

Same, I need a lazy day. I’m not getting a day off next week... 

Her skin is a lot better but not completely clear, so she had another bath in her special shampoo today.

I’ve got the kids on a sleepover Mon/Tues so I definitely need a lazy day

Good morning everyone

 

Cloudy here and a band of rain forecast late morning.

 

Ros, I'm glad yesterday was a success Which music of Rossini will you be doing?

 

Summer and Yogi, I hope your have a relaxing day so that you can recharge your batteries

That appropriate Rosss 

The weather here, as I said to someone from church who I gave a lift to back home, is dreich which I had to tell him what it meant

 

Yogi, I hope that parcel arrives in time for you to be able to send the contents off.  You might get it today as they seem to deliver on Sundays just before Christmas.

 

Moonie, I hope you find something to watch on television, something like football.

Hi El 

That’s a Yogi-ism
