Morning all: Glad everyone is okay after various unexpected topples here and there! Hope things are more stable today.
Diane: I've got the Judiciary Committee hearing on TV but also popping in to NASA TV online for the launch - thanks for the heads up on that.
Annette - It was my Sister that went to France - she and her husband decided to comeback to UK this year as he has illness issues and she wanted to be near her son. Sad to say he is her last son still alive - Her middle son died in a car crash aged 21 and her eldest a few years ago aged 51 of kidney cancer. Although she is 11 years older than me we are very close and she was a great comfort to me when my Katie died. They still have the house in France and have just put it up for sale but the market there is very different to the UK and it will probably take a while to sell.
OG - sorry to hear about your fall - must have been very frightening.
Heather - I have a friend who is very dramatic and sound like the lady in the store. I do realise that some people feel pain more than others but that did sound OTT.
Everyone else - stay safe and warm - or cold - depending on where in this globe you are!
Harelady: Ah so, but sad experiences for you both.... Does she live close to you now? My UK family says the housing market is in a sort of Brexit limbo right now. And I have a daughter who is very dramatic - enough said! :-)
HARELADY - what a tragic coincidence that you and your sister both lost adult children but to have someone so close that could understand - as no one else can - is a blessing. OG - I don't have a ginormous TV here but the one in the sitting room is bigger than I would like. However, I'm not sorry, I organised it for my OH in the last year of his life, as he was spending more time at home and was very fond of watching TV. LINDY - good luck with the book moving! There are three bookcases here and there will never be more, so yes, I cull every so often. Having said that, up in the loft there is a tea chest with books that I just can't get rid of, Sunday School prizes given to my Mum about a hundred years ago and ditto of mine, together with old favourites from my childhood. ANNETTE- none of my children are dramatic but my darling granddaughter Amy more than makes up for that! She can be more than a little attention seeking......
