Nogs, I am glad that you have fettled your bottom bracket without too much pain!
I have had an update from TM - op postponed until next week I don't yet know the reason this time, but I do know that they are both going to be getting very fraught by the situation. Getting oneself mentally prepared for open-heart surgery and then being cancelled on the day - twice- must be very difficult psychologically and I don't know how things are financially as TM doesn't get paid if he doesn't work...
(((Yummity))), no words of wisdom to add to those you have already been given, I'm afraid.
Ho ho hope you have a good time Westie.
When does the new job start XB?
Grey and chilly here, although not the arctic temperatures that, apparently, are to come. We are going to London for the weekend and will be staying opposite Hyde Park. We went and looked around the Christmas thing in the park last year, it was grey, mild and damp. Might see if another look around would put me more in the mood. I was informed that C day is 3 weeks today. I have done nothing as yet and have zero interest...
Waiting to hear from TM, am hoping that the surgery will go/has gone ahead as planned. MIL will be in hozzie until next week at least. They have decided she has a leaky heart valve and also a fibrosing lung condition. I am rather hoping that the family get-together is cancelled as I have had a better offer
(((Podds))) no harm in dreaming (as long as it does not stop you from living the life you actually have!).
Glad to hear that Tony is getting settled in Verona. Have you started taking booking yet Westie?
Hmmm, can't blame No2 potential-lodger from trying to get rid of a few kids but maybe not the most tactful way of going about it?
LOL DL, I'm sure TM would be delighted at being described as 'special' (even by you) but I don't think he will ever be Norma!
Well, Alfie has been for his weigh-in after 6 weeks of 'diet'. I can announce the result...*drum roll*... we have a total of ...*paradiddle*... 0.4kg... *fanfare* gained . He does have a nasty abscess on his tail, but even I must admit that the extra weight is puss, not pus! He doesn't seem to be going out as much as he used to but, even so, he must be getting some extra somewhere!
Aquagym Christmas meal was pleasant, food was good as was company. Choir for me this evening, will this excitement never end??!
