Yeah, for surfing.

Do you have an iron. After all, we know what you're like with electrical appliances.

Re: Wally moments.

Come on peoples, surely you've had a few wally moments to tell us. I can't be the only one doing Wally's..

Anyway, I had a Wally earlier today. I took the ashes out from our solid fuel room heater, and went to dispose of them on the ash footpath at the side of the house. So with an almighty swing of the ash pan, they were distributed over the path.........
BUT, I forgot about the wind direction, and had to run like hell to prevent myself from being smothered in ash dust.

I managed it somehow, so I must be pretty quick in an emergency.

Steve.

Re: Wally moments.

Sadly Steve, "wally" moments are becoming a regular occurrence. On the 11th November 2015, I got ready to go to our War Memorial for the usual service and just managed to remember, I was still wearing my slippers. Old age is catching up with me!

Hey Brian, there's nothing better than wearing comfy footwear.

Old age has caught and past me, I going back to my childhood.

Wally Moment? well I have had quite a few over the years this is just one.

Going shopping one day taking the car, did shopping and then met a friend who offered me a lift home.. well you guessed it I accepted and only outside my house did I remember I had gone in the car. I didn't say anything (well you wouldn't) but then had to walk back for the car.

Red face Re: Wally moments.

Oh I can beat that! I did the opposite a month or so later, offered a lift then found I didn't take the car.. no excuse I was much younger then and cant blame it on old age. I prefer to call them "Blond moments"

This beats my others and my first Blond moment, my excuse was I was newly married and back at work.

After we got married I moved house therefore walked to work from a different part of the town. Each morning I passed the train station and saw people I knew waiting for the train. So Friday morning I went to the station and booked a return ticket and waited.

The train was late when it came (or so I thought) I got on it stood up as it approached my station.. it went past on a branch line!! So I got off at the next station and waited for another train.

Next train didn't stop at my station nor the one I had got on at. After 3 Stations it stopped and I got off and caught the next train to where I had originally started from and walked the 10 minutes to work. All this took over two hours. I still had the return ticket which I never used. Needless to say no one belived me as I had only been married two weeks.

Re: Wally moments.

It appears that everyone has been getting along fine, with no Wallies to talk of, so I'd better add mine to the list.

Global warming is upon us apparently, so why am I still requiring a heat source to keep warm.
I was out in the shed chopping up some old logs to burn on the fire. I have a log splitter which is similar to an axe, and works very well for splitting logs as the name suggests.

However, it does not work very well for chopping sticks which I found out this morning.
I gave this piece of wood an almighty whack to use for kindling. It did work, but one half of this piece of wood hit the wall, the other half hit the Greenhouse, which was 40 feet away. After travelling through a pane of glass, it proceeded to demolish my potted tomato plants, all with the help of the shattered glass.

I wonder if my tomatoes will be traumatized, once the fruit appears on the remaining plants.


Steve.

Re: Wally moments.

Steve,
As we get older I don't think we have wally moments just lapses of concentration

Re: Wally moments.

I think it was the rush to get the fire going. 'More haste, less tomatoes'.
