I have a bit of washing to do this morning and we have a Tesco delivery at 9.00 a.m, hopefully after that we should manage a short walk. This afternoon I have a session with Maxine ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Calm crossing. Woken up on French time in the hotel in Portsmouth ie 6.00 instead of 7.00 however we are in no rush to leave as we don’t want to hit rush hour on the M27 up to Southampton. We will probably cut across country a bit. We have stuff to drop off at Coventry, then home in time for Pilates...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Thanks Stanley, I wondered. I was brought up in Sheffield and started school the term I was 5 in my case January 1955. The funny thing was there were no special classes for the January starters. I joined the class and just did the same as the children who started in September. You had to learn quick...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

It was an April type day, sun and showers all day. The sun was warm but there was a bitterly cold wind. I managed most of what I had to do and left now with a 2 square metre patch to weed. The most dificult one in the garden. When its wet it is like a sandy clay, when its dry it is like concrete. It...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I've also put my last cuts of mutton in the slow cooker in cider with the usual suspects as regards condiments. I love that cooker, they can sit their arguing all day and will be falling off the bone by then. A wonderful start to a winter stew! I love my slow cooker too, it will be on tomorrow with...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Just back from a funeral in Warrington. We had to be there by 10.15am so we made what we thought was an early start but didnt quite make it in time and had to creep into the crematorium after everyone else. It was a horrible journey in heavy rain and once we got to the M60 the traffic was moving at...
