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.

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.

You see I did think Herod, but couldnt see how it could be a chocolate?

Daughter has eaten something, keeps snapping at me so must be feeling a bit better.... I've only had a snack type meal too, just didnt feel like cooking properly what with her being poorly & me being tired! Must plan a menu before I shop on Wednesday after hospital, again.......

The boiler has a new noise! Same solution though. Wonder if OH did phone manufacturer today? J.

Aww Maud, bighugs!

Geoff- completely stumped...

Becks- 3choc coins/decorations, a wiggly rubber worm, a pen that has several colurs- to use with the colouring book....

Nearly gave up shortly after going back out, but somehow had a 2cnd wind- no Gary- & carried on until about 3.30. Found 2 lots of slug eggs- now suitably disposed of! There's lots of signs of new life already there but in my case still a lot of clearing to do. I really must try & sort out some areas to be less labour intensive. Ideas buzzing around head, but wonder if will ever get sorted? J.
