Oh David how scary!! What a good job you were so alert.

GUESS WHO HASN'T CHUNDERED FOR HOURS?? I'm celebrating with steak. It might not be the wisest meal for a delicate near diva like body but it's what the heart wants!

How are we enjoying the longer evenings? It's so nice having the door open to look into the garden and hear the birds and pond trickling. My daffodils are finally putting on a show and my tulips look like they'll be bursting soon too!

Oooh the imperial war museum?! That's brilliant what an exciting place to be!

I like the idea of the badges for a blanket! Might need to investigate that further.

Home safe and feeling most chuffed that the scout leader was... a District Commissioner who was most impressed with the paperwork we provide to make their life easier. I just hope the camp is as good!

Feet up now. Guess I better think about some food. I feel much better this evening so best eat while I can before the next dose.

Oh Lyn I am so glad that you got a good nights sleep. I hope things start to improve a little and the care team are angels in nitrile gloves.

Panda: Gin ice cream sounds good to me! (Perhaps I should have the ice cream and you the gin?)

I'm sat at work waiting for a troop of scout leaders to arrive so that they can risk assess the place for their camp (not this weekends camp: I've got 10 or 11 booked in this year. I don't think my brother went of that many camps as an actual scout! Should I be making myself a camp blanket do you think? I certainly need something its freezing in here). Hopefully they'll not be too late. Its horrid to have to do a long day (and even more horrid trying to navigate Sheffield in rush hour) but they are volunteers with lives of their own so I try my best to make things as easy as I can (especially when they're paying to visit the museum = my wages get paid!)

Most of the food has been purchased so I can relax knowing that they'll not starve (I hate the concept of a person going hungry and so provide far too much instead!) I just need to collect the huge chocolate cake and sandwiches tomorrow.


Rock on Monday when I can relax and HOPEFULLY potter in the garden!

GWRS Congratulations to your niece! What will she be doing? I hope the museum treat her well!

I am now terribly late for work. Time to see how the travel sickness is today! If anyone in Sheffield sees a tiny white van suddenly pull up on the side of the road... sorry!!

Dove; still pretty awful. Mouth ulcers, swollen fingers, and I can't decide whether to be nauseous or feel faint because I haven't eaten... which isn't the best of combinations! Oh well one more week and hopefully things will start to settle down.

Fairy; I'm not a scout and apparently it's poor form to join in with such things; to my relief! I'm just hoping it's warm tomorrow else they'll be getting very cold when we release the fire engine branch hose.
