Viktoria you had me in stitches with your takes... what a marvellous memory you have...
Hope you’re ok with your broken glass all over the place...
Naughty you and friend off to dances when married😱😱... not some htgese days but back then....
Glad I given you all a laugh about wearing my dress over jumper and trousers!.... well I made up for not drinking two glasses of wines during the day.... they got drunk I the evening!
I hear Aldi has some good choices in wine... too far away to go visiting... only use very local establishments...
Mowsehowse - I get what you’re saying about people moving out of their areas if they’re in tier 2... we have thought about whether it’s the right thing for our daughter to do... hard decisions to be made... sometimes heart rules over head... it’s moral blackmail ...

The thing is we thought we were going out just for a meal ,a ladies’ evening.
Had no idea McAlpine’s Fusiliers would be there !
Expected a restaurant not a dance hall ,but we were last minute invitees as not enough in the coach - so did not know enough really.
We would not have gone otherwise ,her husband was sooooo jealous and mine not far behind .
True ,young married women did not go out like nowadays ,my MinL had to tell my husband off because he did not like me going to all the orgies and  wife swapping parties at The Mothers’ Union  at church! ;D
And she was there too!
Different days indeed.

Slippers arrived today, really nice .
Good non slip sole  and  real wool fleece lining,also two soft jumpers a sky blue and rose  pink with turtle necks ,just for under cardies .
I need clothes like a hole in the head !
But a little splash out now and again is a tonic,
I too am all  discumfubulated  re the dates of diaries.
I don’t know if I am coming or going or even on my way back again.

The Piri Piri chicken was lovely with rice ,some in the fridge for tomorrow.
The trouble with online shopping is the dates are all too often very short ,there were only three days on the chicken,in the shop I would delve to the back of the shelf for a longer time.
Granddaughter full of plans for Christmas ,but I reminded her I in particular will in all probability not be able to travel in any way at all, even door to door if someone of the many who have offered comes for me,and brings me home.
Well whatever gets on top of this must be the course of action.

Going to sort out my little secret cache of food so oldest is used first etc .

Dull day intermittent rain.
Why do quiet weekends seem more dreary than weekdays?
Might go for a nice walk and come home to a hot bath then I can feel virtuous.

 Hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Viktoria.
