(((Poorly peeps))) everything is so busy at this time of year, added stress just when you don't need it!
(((DG))) poor lad has no idea of what is being done - or why
I have also choired outside today.Thankfully, it is much milder than some years but still far from warm. I stayed for the first session and hot drink, then came on home. Bff and her hubby are due this evening for pizza and SCD, so I need some downtime before then.
(((Snaily))) I will sympathise with the cold-related stuff. Yay! for you. Good on you for making plans to do all the things you have wanted to.
Bon Voyage Coco, I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing time.
I think Chuggy meant to say that DL is visiting rellies but actually wrote replies which my brain translated to reptiles I feel sorry for anyone who has to rely on DL for seasonal goodwill
Hurrah! for end of term for all you school peeps.
Pippi, that did make me laugh, what ever did Mr P find to 'prove' his ID?
Sounds a great evening is in store Chuggy. I really enjoyed Billy Elliot the film but have not, yet, seen the musical. Do let us know what you think of it.
(((Meldy))) it's not like you to admit to being kanackered (well, only after an IM usually). Are you due for any downtime soon?
I braved Tesco after aquagym (on my own so that I could get there earlier) and it was not too bad. We have a delivery due on Monday and MS has to collect the turkey(the fowl for dinner, not SM or anyone else!) on Wednesday, he can get whatever veg and last-minute stuff he needs at the same time.
SB is due to arrive at 5.30pm on Christmas Eve,he hasn't yet decided whether he wants to go and meet his friends or go to bff's with me (MS will be w*rking).
Crikey JFF! You're a good friend to drive someone all that way, I hope it is appreciated.
(((Snaily))) hope you are well enough to enjoy the party. How exciting to have a 'friend with benefits' - that takes my TM to a different level
Yes, Pippi, of course Mr P has just hidden your SS pressie for safekeeping
I have some food shopping to do and a few pressies to wrap but nothing major left, thank dog. I will point out, here and now, that SM is not staying here over the Christmas period - she lives just a mile away, can manage that on her mobility scooter. MS has tried to tell her that I can only manage about 2 hours at a time but I don't know whether the message has got through!
Was looking forward to going to grammar school carol service with bff and her hubby but bff is unwell so we're not going.Which allows me to get to eaters' club, so it's not entirely a bad thing.
Chuggy, I would be really worried about carrying a fully-iced cake on the bike!
Well, I have some good news and some bad news from SM. The good news is that the friend is going to stay with The Friend from Christmas Eve until 1st Jan. so no worries about her being on her own. The bad news is that the friend is going to The Friend's from Christmas Eve until 1st Jan, SM will be lonely and want to spend lots of time here. Be careful what you wish for...
It's beautiful here today, bright and dry, not even too cold.SM and I did a bit of shopping and then went down to the beach cafe for refreshments.
