Thankyou Jack πŸ’œ

Hi Blackbird8 and OMG we've got loads of ants and flying ones 2, which make me feel physically sick the damned bar-stewards 🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜!! The MET Office have said we could have hail stones that might do some damage. Floods, flash floods, heavy rain, lightening and thunder, hail stones .....I don't know if there's much more apart from a tornado that we've g1ot to be ready for. 🐿🌈😷x

Aunty Enid is creating her own Tornado as we speak shes is still playing her drum and howling to the sun ...( in her mind it's the moon ) I must get her some Lard from the fridge to help along with her sun burning 😜😜😜 We had thunder and lightning last night with rain and today back up to muggy temps of 24 blue skies are starting to appear again...

The ants haven't arrived here yet but the horse flies are out in force armies of them buzzing round and lunging at me leaving teef marks imprinted in the red rings.... now they are dirty filthy flickers....

Must go and turn aunty over πŸ’œπŸ–€

Hi there Blackbird. This is aunti Enid & i b quick as am hiding in laundry bin and on my way out of my top secure unit & freedom.Put the kettle on and run the bath. Dont forget I'm unable to remove my Look a Likey, Russian Spy, wearing large, dark, sunglasses. disguise. Another patient supergluded them to my face! Such a shame they're upside down and at a 30Β° degree angle. Im dreading the Paparazzi getting a glimpse of me coz The Moscow Post won't pay me much. Must go as the sheets are chafing me. See you very soon. AExxxx

I have dialled 999 and a few magazines like Vogue and Take a Break they will pay well for pictures... that's if the rozzers don't get you first Enid hand yourself over πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ˆ

HiπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ...laugh? Did I? Honestly what sad senses of humour we have. I'm not happy as I've spent easily 30 mins plotting and typing, the continuation of Auntie Enid ..... only to find πŸŒ€ woosh, it was gone. Seriously. I'm all laughed out so I'll not reply until 2moro tea time. Where does go. Not into drafts, bin, spam, nowhere😀☹️.Good night BB8- keep πŸ‘πŸ‘'s looking for AE although where she drinks meths you'll be able to smell her b4 you can see her !! 🐿🌈😷x

It disappears into the ether...Same place as Enid on the meth . .its not always methylated spirits she smells off ..πŸ™„

The smell of her cheap nasty Avon toilet water that's shes had since the early 70 s stinks to high heaven sitting there smelling of Avon and meths sucking on the bottle with her painted cherry red lips makes me 🀒😢

She actually thinks shes very attractive which in her mind i suppose she is in a certain light (completely black) and that gurgling noise her nose makes...she could be in a horror film and take the lead role just as she is...limbless faceless and hairless.... call it the Baldy Torso !!!!😱

I'm sure Tarantino would produce if I called him ...😜

So today is my lovley day off to myself and I'm heading back to bed with my cuppa and saying have a lovley day take care my friend πŸ’œπŸΎπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘€

Hi Blackbird8 πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ just as AE would say " just a quickie"(although you're not the taxi driver who she's telling to park on the pavement, whilst she fumbles with her heavy disguise and holds up the bank cashier and attempts to make it back to the taxi!)Don't you think that we're going to appear totally bonkers to everyone on this forum? Hey ho ..... it's good to laugh isn't it? Hope you've had a great day and avoided the rain. 🐿🌈😷x

Bonkers me ??? Totally ridiculously yes always have ... And of course you are my little nutkin special agent you are to ...

But who cares its the banter it's fun and if you enjoy it ....go for it...

Flippin eck she gets around Enid from drinking meths and smelling of euwwe de Avon toilet water ...

to robbing banks and uber's being made to wait it's all that meth that has her completely legless ...

Then she goes robbing the cashier even though shes worth millions of dollar it's all just for fun


πŸ¦πŸ‘΅πŸ’„πŸ•ΆπŸ’°πŸ’°πŸš¬πŸ’‰πŸš•πŸš”πŸš‘all remind me of our Auntie Enid. Yes what would life be if we had nothing to laugh at? Auntie knows that all too well and i suspect she almost sees herself as an actress with a role to play!the trouble is .....she never knows when to stop and at the moment shes at Heathrow πŸ›« airport(so Interpol tell me) trying to attach herself to the under carriage of a Boeing 747, where the landing wheels are. She has a terrible fear of heights and the cold so I can't see what she is thinking of! She'll give herself away with that vile, sickly Avon 1970's muck, stinking it's stench and the Captain will think an animal has died in the cargo area! I'm trying to find out where she's flying off to but right now because of all the security around theπŸ›« plane, it's very difficult to even hear what she's shouting down her walkie talkieπŸ€”. If she contacts you, dont answer although i seem to recall 7 years ago she did a similar thing, but bailed out of the plane, no parachute just a king sized sheet. Have a good day!!! 🐿🌈😷x

Thankyou lovley Carol it's been strange weather in our little world here πŸ’œπŸ–€

Stunning picture! πŸ‘πŸ‘

What an amazing photo. It looks like one of those NASA deep space photos, the Pillars of Creation or something like that. Still cold and dull here, I can’t remember when I last saw the sunshine. Even Aberdeenshire has been warm 🀨

Awww huff I will send you some sunshine in a big envelope...That's rare for the Aberdonians to feel the warmth πŸ’œ

Amazing pic thank you

Stunning photo. It tells me to get under cover quick, or reach for my raincoat, or both.
