What busy bees you all are, I do admire you.
Ordered some nice books for neighbour’s little girl’s Birthday from POSTSCRIPT and some “ to have in “.
Flash Harry will like some of them.
Sorted out my TV licence ,done now.
Drs.Phoned to say my blood tests are due ,
Cholesterol Sugar levels andKidney  function.
I don’t know that I can stand such excitement  ::)
Well some heavy storms and gale force winds forecast, my little greenhouse is dismantled as otherwise it will blow away!

Flash Harry has his bag packed ready for school on September 4 th.
He has been with adults for such a long time now,but his parents have made sure he has shared and taken turns etc.
Sister phoned today, believe it or not I did not get a word in edgewise!
It has a darned cheek this Virus you know, upsetting her lunch engagements etc!
I have given up buying sanitiser except for hands ,bleach does the job according to the TV advert for no brand just bleach .

No plans really for tomorrow,other than a snug day in ,I shall probably only  venture out to feed the fish.
Hope those travelling don’t have difficulties on their journeys .

Roses all washed out ,buds rotting before opening ,so much rain.
The gladioli will get a thrashing tomorrow.
An Apple fallen from the little tree ,expect more after the winds we are to have.
Thanks for all your news , look after yourselves everyone.
Cheerio. Viktoria.

Thank you all for your concern re. my scissors - Still no trace!   Down sides of furniture, under furniture, everywhere they could be and everywhere they shouldn't be.   Can only assume they've got thrown away by mistake.

Annette. You should try to replace your scissors with exactly the same ones, if still available. I know that some items which used to be top notch are now manufactured in other countries and quality is not the same. I hope that is not the case with your special scissors.

They do say ( who “ they” are I am not sure ,but - ) that when you stop worrying about lost items they will turn up somewhere ridiculous!
Hope it is so with you.

Sometimes they do turn up, sometimes in the most unlikely places,  treat yourself to a new pair and forget a bout the lost ones, chances are they will turn up

I found a tenner years ago in  my husbands suit pocket,  he asked me to  take it to the
 cleaners, surely everyone checks pockets first,  i told him it was mine, i kept it but payed towards a meal out, it was years ago
