Ok Geoff choir boy/girl choc.

Becks cant remember...... will check again sorry. Told you my memory c**p!

Drat, my vision has started to play up. Can still 'see' though it all, but if driving I do stop & pull over.

Lottie- assume you're talking about the bosses' wife? I was one of those.....

Will drive down to hospital tomorrow, I walked today. Appointment just too early to get my act together for a 35mins treck at rush hour. All being well should be out soon so can go & do my usual midweek shop & some other chores.

Still thinking about daughter's meal. I'll be fine with just soup but she'll want something more- better go check what got in freezer. Was planning to do a list of contents later anyway before I go shopping tomorrow.

Also waiting on the boiler starting to whistle- anytime now.... It woke me nicely (!) just before my alarm went off this morning. J.

Below freezing first thing this morning, but sunny & dry, so walked down to local hospital quite safely. Lots of people scraping the ice off their cars.

This evening just got back to notice that the frost didnt lift at all off the one side of the back garden. Literally just above freezing out there now. J.

Nipped back to say I'VE FINISHED the cards & letters!! 

Knackered now though, so wont be celebrating otherwise wont sleep properly.

Will be absent until later on tomorrow- course, then lunch out. At least wont be making any noise to wake daughter. Phone already put to silent. Have forgotten already what time she'd be back assuming she stays the whole duty.......

Right, off to sort out in kitchen. Went into there just now to see half emptied dishwasher...... byee, J.

Sort of watching cooking-

I used to do round robin letters, but couldnt in 010, as looking after Dad. Last yr was a real roller coaster, so barely wrote anything extra to anybody. This yr just couldnt remember who knew what, so decided would be easier without. Hmm, perhaps not, but at least it meant that OH's old friend turned up to visit! Not helped by him & his OH losing their address book- how can you do that? So he wasnt sure of our house number, but knew which house it was! Luckily he doesnt live too far away- about 30 miles I would think- so why not spend an afternoon delivering cards personally?! Doesnt help that our phone ExD!

Had to think hard about Jeremy Beadle & why he was mentioned? Thx for explaining becks.

Right, am signing off now. I will do the last letter, then celebrate!! J.

Stand corrected Joe. I knew it looked wrong & should have checked. J.

2 letters done , last one to go!! Methinks I may do a sort of 'round robin' after all next year & leave space to personalise it...... I only have a couple of e-mails still to do as well -smugsmiley!

Daughter planning to go to work..... Have told her I wont deadlock the front door, just in case...... She did give me her Advent choc today though. Remembered that OH had been feeling sort of queasy last week, when he got home. He's fine now, but makes you wonder...

Right, back to pen & paper.... J.

Wish I 'b' well knew... At least I know that am likely to get a wake-up call (!) tomorrow before my alarm is set to go off.

Right, am actually going to finish those cards/letters now!! Then I can post them on way down to hospital course tomorrow. J.
