Hi all, looks as if you have all been doing something or other.
OG , see that J had a lovely birthday meal but had problems afterwards. Glad to hear he is OK now though.
WendyB - awefully good of you to pass over for someone more pressing. I had a phone call a few weeks back re my appointment at the eye dept. re my cataract on the other eye. They asked if all was well and I replied that it was so no op needed at present as it was'nt a bad one.
Had some exciting news late Sunday evening. Our S.Grand-daughter gave birth to a baby girl, Ava Ellen Stasia on Sunday evening. Mum and babe doing well. Its the nearest I'll come to being a grandma , in fact we are Step,GGrandparents. Am arranging for a local artist in my home town to do a Doodle for a new baby. She specialises in Doodles of buildings, animals, new borns, etc. Really quite good. photo below of the kind of thing she does.

HEATHER – OH didn’t go out to lunch yesterday. When I left for food shop this morn, again he hadn’t decided; returning I found him snoozing in front of the TV! He tends to have different food out, mostly pizzas & seafood (especially prawns). I wouldn’t cook them the right way (!), so I don’t bother. At least this way he gets variety.
OG – I can’t insist on OH making up his mind as being undecided seems to be a symptom of Parkinsons. I think when he goes to lunch now he has “same as last time”.
DIANE & ANNETTE – Not so funny for you but a certain person does keep us amused. I enjoyed the thought of an arrest warrant being taken out.
Grand Design noises today are echoing banging noises. Ah ha, they must be working on the interior.
Food shop was not pleasant. A lot of grumpy people and larger numbers than previous weeks. Our restrictions were eased this week, so perhaps more people coming “out of the woodwork”. My store had toilet paper limits again. More items limited at Coles & WW. Because idiots in VIC are stockpiling, so too here. 36 suburbs in Melbourne have reverted to “stay at home unless for food, health, work or exercise.”

Well done, Wendy, on forgoing your procedure for a while: don't suppose there will be many other people thinking of others. Lynette, congrats on a new member of the family, always exciting. I found the card I'd lost - it was back in the box of ready made cards where I no doubt put it to save me searching for it again! Ho hum. Postscript also to The Dog Story -- Sue has a vet appointment this afternoon where she is hoping to get some advice about the problem.
I'm not surprised that you and OH are worried about Sue and Lulu, LINDY. Can Lulu walk?
On BBC news: "A cross-border "cluster" of coronavirus cases between Dumfries and Galloway and England is being investigated, confirmed Prof Jason Leitch" - mentioned Annan and Gretna - sorry, I have to say it: please close the border!
