Oh No Fairy . What a nightmare. So glad she is ok now (if a bit sore).  Hope today is a better day.

We had a good day yesterday, if a little strange, with 4 hours being spent in a car fetching Dad amd returning him in the evening.  But he was on good form, and good fun was had by all (Ludo providled just the right level of hysteria).

All collecting at sisters today for the annual Boxing Day gathering of the clan . Best go get some gladrags on

Woken up very sad - still can't take in last night's news.  Many of my "I was there" moments involved George.....Wham Final Concert at Wembley in '86,  Royal Albert Hall when Elton John surprisingly burst onto stage (well actuallyappeared thru the floor) to belt out that the sun wouldn't be going down any time soon.  And CarelessWhisper ......

Oh dear, thats startedme off again

Wot an exciting start to the new year Wonky. Great news.

Work/ life balance crucial ......I like to have a lot of "life" in mine

Not sure what happened today. Its Christmas Eve Eve, and I finished all my cooking and cleaning about 4 o'clock, and have since been sitting with my feet up ......hope I haven't forgotten something crucial/maybe I am getting more efficient in my old age (tick as appropriate)

Dad will be staying in hospital all Christmas - he is much better, but the medics wanted more tests done and it has taken them 5 days to fit them in.  But still allowed to pick him up for the day on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, and he is really cheerful, so not all bad.  Still planning on a bit of time in the place we found for him when they finally discharge him - sort of a halfway house to getting used to going home.

Morning all you earlybirds. Hope Barbara leaves soon - sounds like people have escaped damage so far. i'm with you Lesley - high winds are the scariest thing - probably living in woodland doesn't help with that.

Wrapping mission accomplished last night - took hours, but glad it is now done.  Today is cooking - mars bar cake (from the Blue Peter Christmas annual circa 1975), rich tea biscuit slices, chocolate mousse and a raspberry cheesecake.  That should suit the sophisticated palates of the Chicky household
