Morning all, At the moment I feel like the lunatics have taken over the asylum, both here and across the pond. I feel sorry for the younger generation.
Had a lovely day yesterday looking after grandchildren, took Mabel to visit Secondborn and Jonah. Her partner proposed in Rome, they were in a rowing boat in the middle of a lake, very romantic. I have to say the ring is gorgeous, a pink saphire with diamonds either side, the boy did good.
Put Mabel to bed last night (she is 3), she brushed her teeth but announced she didn't want a wee. After about 5 minutes I heard a little voice calling nanna so I went to the bottom of the stairs and Mabel was sitting on the top step, blankie in hand. I asked her why she wasn't in bed. She said 'Nanna, here is the deal, I'll have a wee and go to sleep if I can have some more milk. Is it a deal?' She really made me laugh, needless to say she got the milk.
Had a really heavy frost, so the dahlia's have blackened, will need to motivate myself to get outside, remove the foliage and give them a good mulch. Have a couple of cross stitches to start, hopeing to get them finished to give them to daughters for christmas but not sure I will manage it.
Is it Liri whose off to her cottage in Scotland, I can't remember, hope you have a safe trip.
Glad to hear you are safely back BL.
Hope the wrist feels better soon Fairy.
Sorry if I've missed something, I just turn the page and my mind goes blank. Have a good day folks.
