Awww KEF your ma sounds amazing  cherish the memories because they are like little parcels of giggles to be unwrapped whenever you need 

Hosta, I've got a Pimms tonight and totally understand your stress levels, never had that happen to me but plenty of things can set me off  enjoy your beer 

Hope OH is still behaving himself and not driving you crazy to get going again too soon, I know mine is the worst patient you could imagine for that 

I'm in the bath after ripping wall tiles off the kitchen wall, cleaning the tops of the cupboards oops how did they get like that? Then painted coving and ceiling, another coat tomorrow plus the walls before preparing walls for new tiles and worktop 

I might get a day off this week, I might not

YAY Hosta for a great buttock recovery or just a great buttock 

Up and at 'em this morning, a huge to-do list once more, where has all the fun gone in my life? 

If I'm not slogging it out at gym I'm doing flooring until my knees are sore 

Now the hallway is about finished, OH wants me to shop for kitchen tiles, a lick of paint, new worktops and splashback and yes you've guessed it, a new floor

Way too tired to read now, walking Flynn then early to bed for me. 

Drove middle son to shops after work today because he needed a computer part and used a dual carriageway and a large round about which was my biggest fear, no problem now  then lovely meal at table in bigger room after room swap 

Take care all, night night

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
