Well done to Runny's granddaughter!  From   someone who passed only a matter of weeks ago, I know how great that feeling is

After waiting 20 years though, it was also very surreal and I was terrified of driving on my own and really had to face my fears to get through it but now I love it  and I'm driving my little sports car better after the practice

Still here Fairy 

I took the newspaper tip but was scared of getting print on the inside, it rubs off doesn't it? But thanks, I'll use that one when I want to dry out my gardening trainers 

Bag is almost dry and almost back to its old self, I think. To be honest, the only difference in it is what I know is there, a slight bow underneath and some small bubbling along the inner zip flaps. It's a sturdy type design, handles not a shoulder strap which is probably why it got left in the rain, which is my preference, although obviously not sensible for forgetful folks 

Off to work shortly, have a good afternoon all

Morning all 

About to head to the gym then a quick dash to SM before my two hours parking runs out. Flynn decided to stop eating his tinned food even though he loves it, so we mixed in rice and he was fine eating it again and then suddenly stopped again. He will rather go without and we don't know why. Last night I had to hand feed him and he ate his food no problem that way but obviously that's going a bit far so it's cooked chicken from the SM (oven is dead) with rice for his dinner 

Have to go to work this afternoon to prep myself for the weekend bakery. Since my boss can't find anyone suitable to take over from me in the afternoons and it's not entirely healthy for me to be doing 12hr shifts back to back , the only alternative is to bake off as much long life goods as possible prior to those very busy shifts 

We'll see how that turns out. ..

Yeah glad it was dealt with at least to a greatly improved condition than before 

What would we do without the doctors, nurses, specialists et al? 

Really proud of the British health care system, the dedication and genuine compassion shown and the bravery of our emergency services 

Sleep well tonight chicky and all

Condolences to Bushman 2 , hope the sad times pass soon 

Bestest best wishes Hosta!  Ortho man better have good news 

Yes! Clari, welcome to the club 

Meh DD, but at least I get to watch TV while I do my ironing. Good luck with your full house tonight, gosh you're always so busy, business must be doing nicely 

Going to treat myself later  (post ironing) to browsing for kitchen furniture. I have opened up an area in my tiny kitchen so it's not quite so tiny looking any more and after looking at bins that cost 150 quid,  I'm thinking a better use of space would be a butchers trolley. Anyone know of a company that make quality, let me know
