... until I take up my rightful role as dictator in chief ..
Take your place behind me in the queue Pdoc
Hosta! You met Pavarotti!!!!
I saw Princess Diana - I was really quite close - she was sooooooo thin.
I also met Desert Orchid - he licked me and dribbled snot on my hand
Pat, for many roles I prefer Domingo's voice, but Pavarotti singing Italian opera and bel canto is just heaven.
Ma was fine - the staff were helping her with some knitting - she used to knit all the time but stopped about ten years ago, saying her hands hurt, but I think it was because she got into muddles. Today she needed telling what to do for every stitch, but she was enjoying the help and attention. Several residents were knitting squares for a blanket, so while Ma and I chatted I did some rows for her. She was very chuffed that her square was growing faster than the others
She was very muddled about who I am, who her children are, where her mother and Pa are - apparently neither of them are as mobile as they used to be
She's thinking of employing someone, a nice man, to look after her children ........... he's coming for an interview next week. I said that if he didn't turn up that would prove he was unreliable so she'd better not employ him - she agreed that was a good idea.
Lesley, lunch by the sea was wonderful.
The Irish Stew in the slow cooker is smelling wonderful.
