GRANDMA'S BACK.

HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 15/12/2014 at 09:54

Morning all. Its my day off (yay!) And since I can't get a doctors appointment to see about this cough that's been lingering far too long now I'm self treating with mugs of tea, the heating on, and crawling back into bed to make a nest with a few good books.

Must do the wrapping too: I did some a while ago and due to my tbi I'm having to go through the receipts and then squidging all the parcels to see which belongs to who and indeed what they are! I really must learn to put labels on!

Lizzie; feel free to send the mulled wine this way. There's no reason for me to have to leave the house today

Keep safe everyone! 

HELLO FORKERS!

I used to bake bread every week but I seem to have developed an issue now we're gluten free - the moment I go near any recipe with yeast in it fails to rise! Not even the local birds will eat the resulting mess! 

Sad to read about Grandma. I can take a guess whose been sticking their foot in. 

In gardening news: my "oh fudge the label fell off" is sprouting! Hopefully we'll find out what it is soon.

PLEASE DONT GO GRANDMA

Grandma,

I only got to read a little of your original thread; too caught up in my little world despite my best intentions to check you were okay. But my imagination can, unfortunately, only too easily start to put together one of many scenarios involving people with rather too high an opinion of what their hyperactive imagination regards as relevant much less correct or up to date.

BUT, we know you are the cleverer than most; you might not flash around letters after your name but you have a proven track record of common sense, hard graft, a sense of duty, and a passionate loving nature than beams through your posts. 

I really hope when the time for you is right you will remember the friends sat waiting here for you.

Dove, decaff is the one with the blue lid right?

Final kettle call of the day: I'm in bed with a hot water bottle to ease my back a little. I think it must have caught a chill somewhat when I was pottering around earlier.

Kindle e readers

Samung note user here - I'd definitely suggest getting a tablet of some variety rather than just a Kindle. The Kindle app is free to download but of course you then also have a tablet open to a variety of uses.

My samsung lasts around 10 hours use (unless I'm watching a movie) and has a screen film over it to protect it and also reduce any screen glare (can be a problem sometimes in harsh sunlight).
