Summer duvet ? sheets ? Still distinctly chilly over here. Sometimes get too warm at night so have to push bedding off then it gets cold and have to pull it up again. No happy medium yet. Waiting for D. to call in and take some photos of the kettle which failed. The manufacturers want photos, but how do you get " electric shock" and light not working ? lol I'm not up to the modern idea of camera phones connecting to internet..

I seem to be "at war" on another thread re my School days. When I moved out of London to a shiny new estate, Houses were more important than schools, so for some time I was without School (You've probably already discern that?). At Length Coaches were arranged to Take us to School in Romford (I even remember the names of our Coach escorts), Then some "Temp Huts" were built, and then the first two classrooms of a New School. I Know exactly the Year that was built, and the Year when it was converted to Junior School, and extended to a new corridor of classes. I Know when I left to go to Senior School. But... Somebody running that thread keeps putting in all sorts of false details - So why am I getting so annoyed? Another woman on that thread (Don't Know her) was also challenging The Date of the Fire? The date and name of the adjacent school and the date that a combined name was given to the remains of the Other School, (the one burned down) - She was right, none of those things - seems to me that some were schoolteechers - and you know what they are like - and wasn't even there at the time. I suppose theres a warning there about believing History - even Recent History.
PS my first Love (like all the six-year-old-kids) was our teacher, Miss Bowtell. Never forgave her for getting married and leaving us.

I Suspose I could have put this on The Archers Thread. - Just found a post on the Local (County) thread, seems that someone is looking for the owner of a ferret just found in Cranes Farm - The road where The Hotel is .... Just reflecting on Jo Grundy, a ferret, and Grey Gables .... Wonder if whats-her-name Joe's ferret is missing him.

Anyone know anything about Helichoptors? One (or maybe two, or maybe the same one came back after an hour or two) So much noise, I couldn't hear The Archers - Maybe they are looking for the owner of that found ferret. I'd like to know how long a tankful of fuel lasts - Damn thing has got to go back soon???

an update.. Choptor left soon after the archers. There was a story (Local posts) that someone had stolen a Moped in Canvey (for those in distant parts - Canvey is an island in the Thames Estuary swamps - recently newsworthy because 12 different addresses raised for drug dealing - hence much police interest still there). For some reason, Moped Thief could not get away from the twelve police cars that chased him ten miles ending here... (?). but no without chucking fluids at one particular police car - the fluid smelt like petrol... (No it does seem unlikely to me, too). Blasted Chopper is back here - Looks like the same circular route (I can only its lights from the side view of RH side. not from directly below). Why the Hell is he being noisy here.. If he did all is searching earlier in daylight, why the hell will he find anything now? (no searchlights being used).
Not much point in trying to sleep.. Now sounds/looks like He is now centered here...
