Viktoria Iím so pleased to read your post and Iím sure others are too...
You are the life and soul of this thread and you tales and humour have been missed....
Iím glad you had a good day albeit on your own and I love that you used your beautiful cloth bought by your husband and all your best crocks,glass and cutlery... a lady after my own heart!
With all your phone calls doorstep visits you must have been a busy lady but comforted to know how special you are to your family and friends...
Thank you too for the pastry recipe it sounds lovely... will have to have a go but Iím not known for my pastry... need cool hands donít you mine arenít... my mother and MiL made wonderful pastry.... my talents lie elsewhere....
Take care and look forward to reading more of your tales..

So pleased to hear that all is well with you Viktoria and that you were in touch with your family so much despite not being able to spend the day with them. I hope your friend is soon well again. Thank you for the recipe,  I'm afraid I won't be having a go, I'm well stocked up with Tesco's finest, they're so much better at it than I am!
Have a good day and thanks for reassuring us that you're not under the influence of the elderflower cordial!  :D

The first Christmas   after a bereavement is difficult ,as are all the other special times,I felt Jeff was very brave when he joined in so soon after .
I just hope he is well in himself and will join us again when he is ready .
If he is reading this, you and your family are obviously thought of Jeff, and take your time but you know you are welcome whenever you feel right about it .You wonít be forgotten.
Viktoria and many others I feel sure.

Yes, that is very true.

I have deleted the part of my post asking where he is.
We certainly won't forget radstockjeff and his family.  I agree that he was brave to join us earlier in the year after his bereavement and it was good to see him on here a few days ago.
You are in our thoughts radstockjeff - God Bless.

It was a kind ,spontaneous ,thinking out loud action on your part River Tyne Lass ,and I hope I did not seem in any way critical, my wording was straight off too, in agreement ,Jeff will be comforted to know you and we thought of him .If anyone was a bit tactless it was me by my rushed off answer.
His family too ,although we donít know them  will be sad of course .
Kind regards and sincere thanks for putting the thoughts of many in your post.
Viktoria.

Yes, it was spontaneous on my part and you did not seem critical.  You are right 100% though and I should have realised that it would be too difficult for Radstockjeff to post on this date of all days. I apologise for not thinking straight about this.   :-[
