Just had a chicken leg and then a jam butty!
Lazy lunch.
Done the shed near the house ,now the  garden shed ,but have some bird food to scatter.
The birds don’t come to my garden,sadly , tried many places for feeders so scatter it in the cemetery instead.

So nice to read of all your activities and lovely walks ,friends etc .
Life does go on doesn’t it.

Well spoke with a nice neighbour over my fence this morning ,we have each other’s keys for house minding etc .
I mentioned the nasty neighbour has built an extension and it is far too big.
But not for me to say or do anything about it.

Well someone has ,work has stopped,two building inspectors have been.
The plans shown to,nice neighbour showed a building considerably smaller than what has been built .
It now blocks ventilation and an extractor fan on nice neighbour’ s utility room.
So work has stopped.
I hope I am not blamed for the inquiry as I truly would not be so mean nor so bold!
If permission is granted there is no saying how   much cheekier nasty neighbour could get .
Enough of him.

There are a few thousand homeless spiders now !
I don!t kill them, just serve eviction notices!

I found the box that was the old medicine chest at Mum and Dad’s.
Oh the horrors that held.
 Permagnate ( Permanganate?)of Potash,  dramatic purple effect.
Olive oil for earache ,
Corn plasters,
Vick.Camphor.Golden eye ointment.Zam Buk, Germolene, Wintergreen.Sloan’s liniment ,
Andrew’s liver salts ,Epsom salts .
Thermogene.
We dreaded when that was brought out from under the stairs .
We took Mum’s advice “ Stop thinking about it and it will go away”rather than risk something from that box!
Lovely sunny day here after a cold start , washed a nice pair of slippers that match a very warm dressing gown .
My feet are cosy warm in them so thought a freshen up would be in order.

I forgot I had a blob of sun block on my nose and passed the time of day to passers by and my next but one nice neighbour ,he felt compelled to say “ Do you know you have cream or toothpaste or something  on your nose?”
Explanation.
I feel in the mood to decorate my bathroom , mostly tiles floor to ceiling on three walls .
I have a long handled roller ,for small rolls, I can’t put the effort into a big roller.
It is surprising how much more it takes.
There are little test patches all over the wall where the towel rail is,and the towels hide them .A bathroom and kitchen paint from Wilco’s is the best colour .
Then hopefully the smaller bath, cupboard , and floor covering better fitted
than what is down.I also think the floor would benefit from being hardboarded
first ,after new bath fitted.
Plenty there to keep me busy.
Keep,well every one .
I am now going to phone my friend,well her son .
Just dreading it,although they would have let me know I am sure, if there is any great change.
Cheerio, look forward to  everyone’s  news.
Viktoria.

Dry weather. Hung out some washing. No wind for a change so it was still v. damp when I brought it in. Did some dead-heading. Trying to keep scabious, Mich. Daisies &c. blooming for as long as poss. Big, beautiful Peacock butterfly arrived. Neighbour's cat who spends most of her time in my garden approached me and initiated a conversation which isn't like her. Then she went to sleep. Tried not to disturb cat or butterfly.
Brief phone chat with a friend. 2 conversations in 1 afternoon, including the cat!
Evening watched TV - "Miss Marple" on Drama channel. It lasted 3 hours.

Phoned friend,well her son .
A plan of action is pretty well in place ,son will be main carer ,just  one other once a day or personal care ,but all being well she will be home in Monday.
Pretty well bedridden but has some lucid moments and the the  thinking is
better a few weeks  at home ,knowing where she is than a few months in hospital,or a care home ,confused, not with her family etc.
What a pity travel will still be restricted ,I would love to see her.
At least she has recognised her family .
Thanks for “ listening” ,it does help,.
Viktoria.

This child, like my late husband is assuming saintly characteristics!
It is partly because I don’t see him now, hardly at all.
He is a good kid though,  his Mum has good qualifications and is working in the pre school class at his school .
Different building .
 He responds to calm requests and firm clear instructions .
It used to really thrill me to see a two year old putting his chair away etc without being asked .
Nursery training from his Mum.
He is a fantastic mimic ,voices etc .When I told him stories the bears had their own voices etc and he would copy exactly.
My daughter says she can see a likeness to my OH when very young .
But he also looks like his maternal grandad .
Well folks ,what a tragedy on Lesbos, the refugee camp totally destroyed by fire.
What started as a very kind and welcoming attitude has now become a real problem as the camp is overpopulated fourfold.
Gosh we think we have problems ,and we do, but by comparison we are very lucky .
And  the M/c Arena  reports are truly terrible .
It is hard hearing them.
How much harder for those who lost loved ones.
Hope you all have a good restful night and tomorrow a day where you feel
as in control as we can be in these troubled times .
It makes a difference if you feel you have some control!
Like those spiders ,I chose not to kill them!Me, in charge !
Power over life or death! ;D
If God is a spider I am OK!( unless he remembers those I have accidentally killed)
Viktoria.
