Not actual laundry in yet Joyce -  it has to have an empty detergent only hot wash happen - that is under way. 

Pdoc - take yourself off for at least part of the day - that's what I do when they start digging the road up near here - at least we can do that, unlike when they decided to dig part of the car park up at work - although to be fair I did try to plan several 'home visits' for that week 

Clari ((hugs))  get a takeaway and snuggle on the sofa with Reggie and a good book this evening

Just had a phone call ... it'll be here in approx 10 mins, depending on traffic ...

I don't know that one LG ... it'll be interesting to see how it does and what it's like ... I too am a bit picky about apples - I like a crisp slightly tart Cox, Braeburn type, or a fresh  russet 

The whole school thing seems so complicated nowadays - it was bad enough for my two 30 ish years ago ... when I was at school you knew right from the start where you'd be going and who would be going along with you.  No wonder youngsters get stressed

Good morning LG 

What a lovely present!  What variety is it?    Days are very short at the moment.  Hope you get time to do all that's needed.

Hope daughter's school thing is full of positives - that transition is sooooooo important

Right, I'm up, showered, dressed and mascara has been applied  I've got my second  and I'm fit to face delivery men.
The washing machine was pulled out last night and resident spider and dust was removed - actually it wasn't too bad in there, I was quite pleased with myself. I think that OH had been expecting a lot worse than that 

Fidget, have your hob nail boots got spikes in too 

I've stubbed my toe ... the one next to the little one ... it's sore

Good morning all  G'day Pat 

Ive had a text to say that the washing machine will be delivered between 8:10 and 12:10 ( think that's what it said - I'd better check)   I s'pose I'd better get showered and dressed ....
