I forgot the hair appointment this morning until after I'd posted,  luckily I was half way through putting my face on and my lovely hairdresser always forgives my bed hair hiding under my hat 

The appointment was also early enough for me to get into town afterwards although I didn't get enough tree decorations as no one had what I wanted, I will have to pop in again tomorrow. Must be colour coordinated or Christmas ain't worth doing 

Do I sound a little bit control freak? I have a little bit of Anthea Turner in me 

Nearly got all the presents today so not bad for first day of Christmas stuff for me. Slipped in a bit of shopping for me too, well it's been all house for the last few months . Just got food left now. 

I was thinking the perfect present for me this Christmas would be a year's National Trust sub so I can really get out garden visiting next year, maybe the little yellow book hiding in my cracker could be the cheaper option?   what a lovely dream, and my new year's resolution 

How's the crazy season going for everyone else?

PS oh yeah and my new phone for Christmas needs one of these new fangled micro sims which of course I will need to visit phone shop to get today even though I know not what I'm looking for will definitely be sold the wrong one and I'm doing all the leg work for my present

Morning all 

Firstly, best wishes and get well soon to Pdoc! 

Secondly, poor Yvie's second born to be messed about like that. There's some terrible tales of buying on here, never been in that position but yes please to how the french do it! 

Going shopping today after I lost my mojo yesterday. Spent all day in bed exhausted, I kid you not. Watched all the first dates on catch up, half a dozen location location location and a bit of gogglebox.  And ate far too much so rushy rushy for me today, already got me tree up this morning, decs to follow but need some new ones I think. Christmas food to get,  OH presents, stocking fillers for youngest plus presents from him for his two older brothers, then there's bits of decorating to finish off, need a new sink drainer that stacks the other direction and can fit in my cupboard, and that's off the top of my head! 

Have a great day all

Evening all 

I've read back since my last post, thank you all for the super lovely warm welcome back!  I was surprised anyone noticed my absence  you all lead such busy lives 

Well, my weekend work is over, best of luck to LP and flowers for their impending scans and anyone else who needs support. You know we find *God* in the strangest places, (or whatever deity, ideology, pagan animal or spiritual incarnation you imagine, or abstain!) Think that's covered all angles  but no Dove, I'm not suggesting you know who moved the bucket 

I had an interesting chat at work today with a wonderful wonderful soul, who has been through so much and she's not out of the woods yet, but remains positive throughout our conversation whilst I still fester over a betrayal, and loss of faith that it caused'  over a decade ago 

It's still a painful episode in my life...but this woman nodded, hugged me and asked to go for coffee sometime. 

There is always the beauty of humanity

Hello, it's me

I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet

To go over everything ...okay maybe not 

Hello anyways. 

Been silent running for a bit, had a deadline to meet finishing the kitchen that was a building site and I kid you not that every hour of the day and working late nights were needed to be ready for hosting a conference with OH's American colleagues. It sounds dramatic but it really was an impossible mess that had to be dealt with for visitors 

The actual meeting boss and co went really well in the end but I needed three days to recover,I was completely exhausted while poor OH is nursing an  over-did-it cold. 

Forgive me for not reading back, 

I've tried to catch up but a week's worth is just too much. I do hope everyone is well and avoided storms, flooding etc.

So now my house is in order, what'ya all been up to?

Been up since 4 this morning, took a while to get going 

More decorating to do but it's all coming together now, like one of those D.I.Y programs 

Anyway, will check in when I have something  worth mentioning
