I found a possible son working for a company in Leeds and wrote to him explai...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I hadn’t seen her since the day I told her I was expecting Julia which was about 39 years previously. She looked just the same but much thinner, too thin....we started chatting and ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I can wake any time after 6.15 a.m, but Bob wakes at 7.15 every morning precisely, promptly gets up to make a cup of tea. I don’t get up when I wake as I don’t like to disturb him. We drink the tea have a chat, look at the news etc online, then Bob showers whilst I make the bed, put the washer on et...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

PS we don’t sit down in this house except at meal times or cup of tea time ( and the latter for as long as it takes to drink) . We do collapse in the evening and are great Tv and iPad lovers.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I once had a double breasted coat, and one button came off on the non functional side...if you see what I mean. Anyway I hate sewing buttons on so much that I cut all the non functional buttons off instead of sewing one back on. I was left with a rather different assymetric fastening coat which I ra...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

The nearest I get to press ups is the 'cat stretches' as part of the scoliosis stretches for bad backs. The best exercise I came across. As far as I was concerned leaving my belly on the floor was almost impossible so they could have been seen as 'press up light'. Sue may already have this built in...
