(((Tubs))) glad that you have something nice to anticipate after the hozzie visit.
Meldy, the GPO has been stitched into his onesie?? I knew you were brave but that is foolhardy in the extreme! Hope you have fun down in Devon.
(((DL's OH and MT)))
Sounds as if peeps generally had a good B/Hol weekend -what a pityit is the last one until the end of August
I took SM out for coffee this morning and to sort out a couple of errands. You might (or might not) like to know that I eventually cobbled together some sort of half-hearted apology to The Friend but made it clear to SM that it was for her sake, not The Friend's - and also that I don't want to hear another word about the situation ever again! We have gone ahead with the steps needed to get Power of Attorny registered and SM thinks that is a good idea.
(((Tubs))) as if you don't have enough to contend with!
Chuggy, I am so impressed by you getting up that hill! I do remember the first time I made it to the top of my nemesis hill, the feeling of achievement was amazing. The bookselling event sounds great (especially the cake).
Hope you had a good bike ride Yums.
Meldy up before the crack of sparrows' fart? What is the world coming to??
Glad that your Pa enjoyed his birthday Spence. These events do get more precious as the years go by.
You guys are right. These sibling rivalries have been going on for more than 50 years and we all tend to regress in our behaviour at times of stress. I can try and attenuate MS's behaviour a little but that is all I can do. I was happy to pack up the glassware today cos that is officially ours but have suggested that everything else waits until after the next family meeting (Sunday pm).
Today has been dry but quite cool, we had a little potter around here. I wasn't able to stay for long but, like many places these days, the entry fee actually acts as a pass for 12 months, so we will be able to pop in and potter round again without extra cost.
(((DaffyNan))) so difficult when they are not bad enough for a 'home' but not well enough for solo living without support.
Tapas evening sounds fun Yums, your club is obviously nice and sociable. I do agree that 11pm is rather late to be serving pud - if you go again, I suggest you have pud first
Crikey, that sounds like a days w*rk before brekkie
SB went home today, bff and I went out for coffee and cake as consolation MS w*rking today but will be off tomorrow. He wants to get stuff sorted at MIL's place ASAP, SIL who has been staying there wants to call the shots. If anyone needs me, I will be found with my head under the bedclothes!
Chuggy, you are right, schoolgirl French doesn't teach one the vocab needed for buying a new iphone! I used to have a similar problem with taking medical histories from foreign students - their English could be very good but translating such things as 'cervical smear' was challenging.
Welcome home Westie. Make sure you get plenty of rest - you need to be fully fit in order to give Spence lots of abuse
Pippi, that does sound a great night!
Jenni, you really need this extra day, please make sure you don't fill it all with chores.
Yesterday went smoothly and MS did very well with the eulogy, the sun even came out too. We have SB with us for a couple of days which is always a bonus
Shame about the missed run Yums but, as Chuggy says, cake is always a good alternative.
DL, so near and yet so far! Although, to be honest, you won't be as near to us as you were to Spence. Pity we can't get together for a natter though
Oh dear Podds! Sterkte.,
Chuggy, here's hoping that the lovely Monty does you both proud. To be fair, we have had some nice weather here but only for bits of the day recently. It's brightened up again now. Not sure what it will be like tomorrow, am struggling with what to wear...
