Just briefly popping into say how wonderful that you have connected with new family Carol, but so sorry to hear about your son. I hope for a good outcome for him, and canít imagine how worried you must all be.

Caroline, yes, dogís tummy seems fine thank goodness.

Added: I think you deserve a medal for all the work you continue to do to help keep everyone safe.

Woke to another beautiful sunny day but so very cold.   Another delivery from Hermes - always the same cheery driver.   Said I'd seen so much of him this year I'd have to add him to my Christmas card list and we had a laugh. 

Doorbell rang around 1.30 and it was my downstairs neighbour - wanted to check I was okay and if I needed anything which is sweet of him.  We see so much of the neighbours in the summer months but when winter closes in everyone hibernates indoors.  Dug out a large bag from the kitchen cupboard to house all the christmas presents I've ordered so know they'll be together in one place when the time comes to wrap them.   A lot of ironing to do and I so hate ironing - manana,  manana!   Would rather wash a load by hand than actually iron it!   Strange, aren't I?

Asda delivery around 1pm - when brought to the door I saw it was all loose in the crates and not in bags as requested.  When I said this to driver he then spotted bags which had been placed underneath the items in the crates!   Another thing for him to report.   I was the second one who'd not had their order placed in bags.  Someone back at Asda not doing their job properly.

Potato skins with cheese/bacon for dinner followed by salted caramel cheesecake.   Watched TV - some old NCIS which I love - and knitting of course.   

Started a new book when I eventually went to bed and had a good nights sleep.

Stay safe everyone.

Caroline, hope your friend has agreed to help with the sewing, you've done such a massive amount. Good to hear that your other friend still has her job at the airport, such worrying times for many people.
I used to have a paper shredder but it jammed all the time. I only burn papers about once a year and they take literally two minutes with very little smoke, I wouldn't burn anything for any length of time.

Ruskie, glad the dog is okay after eating the mushroom. I know you get quite a lot of British programmes over there, I wonder if you get Dogs Behaving Very Badly. There are some really naughty dogs! I can't help laughing at some of them, the Dogfather (as he's known) soon has them behaving perfectly, even the few that are quite nasty.

LM, what a thoughtful family you have. Hope you managed to get some sleep eventually.

RTL, hope you get a favourable reply from the council, it must be so hard doing without a cup of tea before you go to work.

Carol, I'm really sorry to hear that P isn't doing so well, I hope he has some improvement soon. So lovely for you not only to have made contact with your husband's cousin but to have become friends too.

MH, lovely for you to see all the wildlife despite the weather.

Annette, I don't think you're strange for hating ironing, I'm not keen either but there again, not keen on doing washing by hand! Hope you got it all done.

Oh yes, I have seen that programme Roobarb.  ;D Dog watches it too and barks at the dogs on TV!  ::) Oh dear, Iím not painting a very good picture of her ... she is lovely, but a bit of a weirdo and a bit nervous at times. I recently saw a repeat of the one with the two naughty labradors and my daughter was offended when I sent her a message to turn it on quickly to get some tips

Oops sorry for my comment about NCIS Annette (as you say you like it).  :-[ It is the SVU one that I half watch on occasion.

Hi Carol,

I am sorry to read that your son is going through a tough time just now.  I do hope things improve for him very soon.  I really feel for you having to cope with all of this and I hope you will keep strong and safe.  That is good that you have these good supportive friends from your club. 
What a wonderful story about the DNA connection you have been able to make on your late husband's side.   :)
