Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I forgot to mention we had a message from our neighbours in France in response to a comment Bob made about running out of french coffee and Wine. Laetitia offered to send us a parcel but we declined the lovely offer because of the cost of postage and post Brexit taxes. She also said that Yves had mo...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Morning A cold frosty start but a very good forecast. Yesterday was busy. The morning as per each Friday, rather hectic followed by a late lunch. We then did a short round trip to the local shop as we had run out of salad for our pizza tea. We did a bit on the jigsaw and before we knew it, it was ti...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I don’t know, Sue. I think it would be pretty terrifying having a face to face/home to home job like that during Covid lockdown! It’s not as if they are supplied with PPE. They must return to their families after shift worrying what they are carrying home! Even if they stay at a social distance fro...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Col had a telephone consultation with the oncologist yesterday and the chemo has been very effective, shrinking the tumour to about 7mm and destroying any cancer in the surrounding lymph nodes. The operation will go ahead as planned, just waiting for a date now. Just read this Wendy as I don’t norm...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Morning Drab old day yesterday. It seemed to be semi dark all day. Bob managed to get some more soil moved but had to stop when it started raining. He has distributed some on the more soil deficient areas of the garden too, I just need a dry day now to go and dig it through. I managed to cut out my ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

They look very good indeed Stanley, as I have said before, so tactile. When we have been round model engineering exhibitions that is something that has always struck me about the various builds at different stages and how the metal and wood takes on a new life as it is nurtured into shape.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Morning Bob managed to get half the soil moved round to the back garden and the pots filled. We have a whole bag of soil left but will spread some on the garden and use some to fill new garden pots when they arrive. I think rain has stopped play today! After the funeral I finished my top and then di...

Morning Exactly Stanley, I have to do something really stupid to trigger any pain in my back which is why I don’t think this is a big back related problem if it is back related and we will never know . I have all the usual ageing aches in the morning , usually gone after a warm shower and moving aro...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Time is going to hang heavy after this week when I stop doing pilates and yoga for a month . I assume this pause is something to do with the pain in your foot. Normally I would keep quiet on other peoples medical problems but yours does have similarities to mine. I've long suffered back problems wi...

I think I may be getting a bit bored Stanley but keep doing the same old with a difference if we came. Time is going to hang heavy after this week when I stop doing pilates and yoga for a month . Hopefully I can get out in the greenhouse soon, sweep it through, wipe down surfaces and set up seed tra...

I have ironing to do after our usual Sunday Brunch and at noon we have a zoom chat with our friends Jean and Bob so I think by then the best of the day may be over but if we can grab a walk we perhaps will.

Skips have been filled, bins put round the back, great progress.

I had decided to give them one more week n...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We did 4.5 miles up on to Rooley Moor and back. Its a good climb up but nice to finish on a downhill. Mind you whichever direction we go we have to finish on a small uphill because of where the house is. We saw no one on the tops, fabulous views , but coming back along the old railway track at 11.30...
