The small conical emitters are being installed on the lamp posts in Skipton Road. No news from Mrs Trelliss. Only good thing is that Turkey foil is on sale in the Cathedral of Chice. Bit thicker than usual brand. Good for lining beanies to block the transmissions.

Thanks for the advice Cathy, it's good I don't get up early otherwise I might have followed Stanley's instructions to the letter and had a sore head! Never mind, better a sore head than a brainwashed head.

You could use lead sheet, a bit easier to beat to head shape and would have the benefit of protecting your head from ionising radiation as well as bad brain waves. Might be a bit heavy however,,,,,

Alternatively, multiple coats of a good aluminium based paint would do the job.

But difficult to remove once the danger has passed!!  Have any lights been seen yet?  Perhaps as Mrs Trellis is no longer around we could appoint another look out.

I was getting worried about Mrs Trellis - and Boris for that matter.

They are both survivors and I don't think we need to worry too much. Meanwhile shopping activity increases in Barlick....  I always wonder at this time of the year how much food is eaten and how much wasted.

This time of year family members do tend to arrive and probably eat more at home rather than near work of their own homes so its no surprise the purchases can double. 

Times today though negate the need to stock up like we did in the 1960s and 70s , when with the Bank Holidays shops could be closed for up to 4 days now I only have to worry about a few hours.

The best thing about these days is that milk is so hygienically  produced and treated it keeps for a week!

whatchutalkingabout Belle, I remember discovering it was not a good idea to wash a freezing cold (empty) milk bottle in hot water. I was about nine at the time. There was a loud cracking sound...then I was left holding the bottle neck and the base was at the bottom of the sink.
Can't remember if this occurred before or after I discovered it was not a good idea to put a knife into the toaster to free a stuck bit 'o toast,,,

Had a funny experience today, when I was washing up a mug I knocked it on the underneath of the tap spout.  After drying it I used it to make a cup of coffee in and it leaked all over the benchtop.  I emptied it and then filled it with cold water, but and here's the funny thing, it didn't leak!!  Tried it again with hot water and again it leaked.  ??   I've thrown the mug away anyway.

Spooky!
(you haven't accidently doubled up your medication have you Caz?)

Did you have your alfoil helmet on at the time? I suspect you did. So obviously you were spared, but the mug 'bought it'. A close call if you ask me...

Mrs Tiz ordered a mug online from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). Box arrived in post. No mug, but one teapot, badly wrapped, lid broken. Rang RNLI who refused to send the mug until we mailed them back the teapot that very day. No apology for getting the order wrong. Told them to get the courier to collect the teapot when he delivered the mug. Stalemate. Eventually a more senior lady called, apologised, said they would put the mug in the post and they didn't want the teapot back. Superglued the lid. Now have yet another teapot - have about 6 already (not broken or glued). Couldn't bear to throw it away!
