Only Fools and Houses

So on an Easter Sunday that also coincides with my mother's birthday, I am not able to see here except through the wonders of modern technology.

Luckily my sister has been able to help her through that, so it will be easter "barnets" on soon (number 3 likely as the barber's is shut)

Words of encouragement from Darlene

Words of encouragement from Darlene

Not Marlene misspelled but some words from Darlene Love...


"what people have to understand is that if you're getting more good than bad out of something, it's always worth it. But you have to keep on, you have to see to your goals and your dreams, and keep moving forward. We all have bumps in the road. We have barricades. But my whole thing about that is this: A barricade is nothing but something you have to get over. That's what I've done most of my life. Once you get over it, the joy on the other side is very fulfilling. So you just have to keep pressing on."
 
 
Something you could say Delboy followed, even if he could not put quite so eloquently.

On a serious note

On a serious note

​With almost a week gone since the terrible fire at Grenfell Tower there are a few things that have emerged, and we find that real life is perfectly capable of re-producing and indeed bettering our fictional friends. What immediately occurs to me is the sense of community and togetherness; a "we're all in this together" mentality amongst the local ...

Only Fools and Hearses

Only Fools and Hearses
Go out mellow, in yellow!

Go out with a Bang! Or at least making them smile now that you can be carried to you final rest in place in a Trotters Independent Traders 3-Wheeler Hearse. Shiny, black and full of decorum? Nope, grimy, yellow, and - strangely like one of Del Boy\'s schemes - likely to mis-fire at any moment...

The Greatest Sitcom Ever!

The Greatest Sitcom Ever!
With thanks to our friends at ofah.net  Only Fools and Horses is still the greatest sitcom ever and continues to hold the record in the UK of the most watched programmes in the 80 year history of British television. Today's battle ratings don't come close to the 24.35 million that tuned into Only Fools And Horses on December 29, 1996, when Del...

Favourite Only Fools and Horses Christmas Episodes

Favourite Only Fools and Horses Christmas Episodes
 So as we approach the yuletide season and take some time out, the important things in life come to mind... What are the greatest Christmas Special Episodes of Only Fools and Horses?

On the agenda once again will be plenty of barbecues, beer, and wine! They'll be a ma...

K-nackered

K-nackered

 So, it might be Wednesday evening, and therefore you could argue that the back of the week has been broken, but I am well and truly knackered. Getting in late is one thing, but this bloody virus keeping everyone awake is a right royal pain in the @rse! I can't have had more than 20 minutes of unbroken sleep last night, or at least it didn't s...

Classic Moments

Classic Moments

So here is one of my all time favourite moments from Only Fools an Horses. Frequently voted the best of the best, it just can\'t be beaten for sheer slapstick. Trigger's reactions are fantastic, first the "Where's Del? face, then the jump when he gets back up. Hilarious! The post fall reaction of Del is just brilliant. "You're Cramping me styl...

The Game of Spoof

The Game of Spoof

Ah spoof, so simple, and so much fun... The method of play is pretty simple, by itself it's not much fun, but the forfeit for the ultimate loser of a game of spoof is where it comes into it's own (we'll make a couple of suggestions after the rules). Method of Play & Rules Every player needs 3 coins - preferably small coins, buttons will do, but...
