Love my kindle paperwhite but thinking of upgrading to a Fire as having a colour screen appeals.  I would then have my mags on there and some reference books.  Will have to check weight though.  Is the battery life good.  I use my paperwhite every day and the charge lasts weeks.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Sorry for your loss Fidget.  I am really rubbish at times like these as I never know what to say but my thoughts are with you and your family. 

My siblings were useless when my dad was Ill with cancer.  When he died they didnt even make it to the hospital and my brother only lived 20 minutes away.  I was the only one with my dad when he died.  I have never forgiven them.  I dare say it will be the same when mum's time comes.

Still no decision about what to do about her foot.  They are worried if they carry out the amputation it wont heal.  I can't see what else they can do.

Hugs Verdun, Lynn and Matty. (Hope I haven't missed anyone).

Not good Chicky, I think I could manage without the heat but can't bear the thought of no hot water Brrrrr.

Going back to KEF's dilema about male or female doctor.  She should use mine as an example.  He decided to come to work as a she.  It was most strange.  Come to think of it he was very gentle and softly spoken.  It still felt very weird when going to see him (or should I say her). 

Lovely sunny day here, haven't ventured outside yet so it could be colder than it looks. 

Just sprayed some Allium heads silver to use as Christmas decorations.  Think I should have sprayed them outside, feeling a bit lightheaded at the moment.

Have just switched on TV to check the news and the Sky box isn't working.  Hubby is not going to be pleased when he gets home.  I'm off on Nanna Duty later today until tomorrow evening so I won't have to listen to him complaining. Hurrah.

Off for a quick look round. 

Christmas of yesteryear

Im a paid up member of the SAD club.  I dread Christmas being over, its all that gets me through November.  January and February are awful.  I've never tried the lights might invest in one.

Christmas lights in the garden

Isn't it funny how we all like different Christmas lights.   For me the best are warm white, static (or maybe twinkling).  They seem to be much more magical than coloured, flashing lights and I don't like the picture ones or rope type lights. 

Until last year I had a real Christmas Tree but I finally decided that a fake one would be easier.  It is a good copy, but it isnt quite the same.

Hi everyone,

DD sorry about your sister.  I  haven't had any sort of relationship with my brother for the past 30 years, we do speak now mainly about mum, but It's like speaking to a stranger. 

I have holiday envy Archie, it looks so warm and sunny on the pictures, mind you looking out of our window today it was like a summers day, until you opened the door and let all that cold air in.

Did some H*******k today, lots of glittery mess after finishing the decorations yesterday.  I've also started to feed the birds again after the visit from Roddy the rat so I'll see how it goes.

Edd yes, the shoe quote is from Forrest.  How about the hungry one.

Thanks for all your good wishes.  Had a very lazy day today, put up the rest of the Christmas decorations and watched lots of TV.
