I've had problems with the latest post thingy for ages. Now I start at the beginning of the week's thread and go to the bottom to click on the arrow which takes you to the latest posts <sigh> <double sigh> Well, I've had a very mixed day. Before I left home, I took a phone call saying that as they'd had a cancellation, could they fit the blinds today? I said as long as it was in the afternoon, OK. Then I moved lots of stuff which was in the way, and dashed off to Handforth where our biggest M&S is. I bought a new saute pan and lots of M&S pies and products, as our most local M&S has just closed down. I was going on from there to Lakeland Ltd for a list of small things we need, when I got confused and missed my turn off, on a new road. Never mind I can just go around the next roundabout, I thought, and come back to where I want to be..... No chance, the next three big junctions were not roundabouts and marked "No right turn". I tried not to panic, but gave up all ideas of going to the shop I wanted. The road led ever onward: for a v e r y long way. I ended up near to Manchester Airport! But at least I'm familiar with driving back from there. So I drove home! When I got home and emptied the car, a van drove up -- the blinds man had arrived a whole hour early! After rushing to make space for him to work, with the help of my OH who had just come back, we left the man to his job: its all done, so glad I didn't turn him away. Whew! Now putting things back in their rightful places.
High folks, still around but not a lot to say.
Have bee reading all your news and note that a ML has been killed on the road, Annette - not very pleasant. OG was pleased to see that you have been given an alternative to surgery, hopefully it will bring relief.
Lindy - the country walk looked very inviting. Do hope OH's thumb is better now!
One or two of you I noted have had problems , do hope they resolve themselves.
Weather down here has been fair if a bit cooler. Do hope we are going to get a reasonable week next week as we will be away up in the Eden Valley. Hopefully visiting a part of the Lake
District whilst there.
