Good morning all   G'day Pat

Thank you for your kind thoughts everyone ((hugs))

It was a chilly night - down to 2.9C, and it's overcast and only 3.1C now.

This is what early morning in Norwich looks like ... from the nest on the cathedral spire where the peregrines are brooding their four eggs

Ma is quite poorly and things look serious.  I've had 'that conversation' with the GP.  With her age and level of confusion any exploration or treatment would be very distressing.  I know what she would want were she able to choose.  She will remain at The Lovely Home and be kept comfortable and as the doctor says, 'We'll see what happens.'

Wonky is being a tower of strength, as is OH of course.

I think the difference in size is marginal if at all ... or it might be Lyn's power of auto-suggestion.

Ouch I ache all over - very strenuous tennis this morning - I might find myself dozing

Yes, but I was still interested while watching it - but it may begin to pall after another episode .........

They do look a little smaller - perhaps it's so they fit on a mobile phone screen

Need help keeping them fresh
