Drat! hadnt realised that the bag of kale needed to be washed, so delay in starting to stirfry it to go with the spicey 'stew'.

No message was left..... just wont answer anymore. OH, if he back early morning, will of course do just that & get really cross. Dont think he's cottoned on to the slight pause you get with cold calls that gives you time to put the receiver down first. J.

Back inside. 4 biscuits, the last Aldi chocolate bar & a coffee, what more could a girl want?

Realised was going dark here too Chris & the noise from next doors' leaf hoover annoying me so I stopped. Wheely bin soooo full & have also been adding to my bins if the stuff soggy, so bin doesnt dry out. Energy levels brill today, but tomorrow..... oh well give it a week.

Whoever asked- yes at hospital next Tues. It's a course for women like me run by a cancer charity & the nurses. The other lady locally, in a similar situation, isnt going. She's still wearing her wig too, but her hair must be better than mine as she's a month or so ahead of me in the treatment. Each of us react differently I suppose. I just hope that I can walk down ok, bit daft if I get halfway & realise need a taxi. Daughter can collect anyway.

Phone keeps ringing, number withheld so am just letting it go to answer machine. If OH's Aunt, a possibility, she should leave a message & I'll ring her back later, when about an hr to spare!!

Right, must get changed. Meal easy again- reheated leftovers. May even do some cleaning later as realised that if OH gets back early he'll not be impressed & daughter will want a lie in after her part night-shift.

BTW Inka- wonderful shot of your nearby surroundings. J.

Back again, well for a bit, then am off outside to continue clearing the border that daughter disrupted yesterday with her 'how do I do it?' bulb planting! The sun has arrived too.

We trotted up to PO- daughter sold something else, unlike OH who keeps buying -then into local supermarket for supplies until w/end. Even more chaos than normal as they are expanding, into not much space anyway, presumably to offset the new Asda which is due to be built sometime soon. I dont intend to drive up to either as roads already bad enough & the supermarket parking is even more reduced & people, drivers, are just being stupid/selfish.

Ooh different nurse coming tomorrow, but she says has visited me before. No memory of her but there are several with the same first name, so confusion, by me, very easy.

Poor daughter just left- wonder if she'll last the shift? J.

What's the weather like in your area?

We've now got a lovely sunny autumn day!

Dull, but dry earlier, walked to local shops. Back home to make 'bottom of fridge/veg rack soup' with newly purchased crusty bread & grated cheese- very yummy.

Off out in a bit to continue cutting back in borders. J.

Morning all,

Popped in with my 2cnd coffee whilst daughter in bathroom. She's doing a rotten shift today & feels grotty with yet another cold- 2cnd in 3 weeks.

House temperature didnt drop much last night, so heating didnt come on. Not too bad initially then I decided to 'boost' it for the remaining 30mins. Radiators really quick to heat up- impressed. Now also know much more about the 'wireless' sensor- that's what the box is in the cupboard!

Off for a local quick shop then may delay being Mrs Mop as it's dry out there again & the rest of that one border is waiting for me to finish it off. Can do cleaning when dark, wont be brill, but nobody notices 'cept me.

Shall look for Garden News Pam. J.

Completely confused now...... my poor brain!

Am going to be very boring & sign off. Ironing awaits, but then maybe not.

IF someone is willing next week, I may ask for lessons......... J.

Mobiles have a lot to answer for. Some yrs back friend & me trolling around Bodnant Garden in NWales when her son, then about 16 I think, phoned- could Mum collect him from college that night as he wanted to go out & the bus would take too long!! He didnt believe her when she refused as not possible!

Me post a photo? no chance....... that's a task for me to learn/sort out over the rotten winter months. J.

Grey, but dry here in WManchester today.

Got a lot done outside, Anything obviously finished was removed but still more cutting back to do. A lot of stuff is still going strong, so seems a shame to dispose of it yet. J.

I'd never heard of that game either.

Daughter insisted that I bought her an advent calendar this yr- cant remember where it is......

She took herself to Trafford Centre today & got some more pressies on my behalf, helpful & some for herself. I'll pop along next week I think. I refuse to go anywhere near the place in Decmber!

Oh the latest from here is- after about an hours' wear of her scruffy jeans they appeared dumped on landing meaning 'please wash'!! I promptly threw them back at her & said gardening/old clothes did not get done until they could almost stand up by themselves! She retorted that she didnt want dirty clothes in her room! If you could see in there........ Anyway, compromise, jeans now in a bag so that they can be kept somewhere in there!

Potatoes baking in oven, brocholi trimmed & washed & goats cheese tarts to go in next. Easy tonight. J.
