Hello all and thank you for the news and chat. I'm very lazy about writing but do like to know what everyone else is doing :-)
ANNETTE- Sounds if you needed a quiet day after daughter's visit, walking the dog etc! And then you sorted out the guest bedroom straight away -I've been known to leave doing that for a few days.. LYNETTE - I do hope that the diabetes nurse will be able to help with your OHs tiredness. LINDY- is this your last visit to Wales this year? Autumn is definitely here, a whole big 6 degrees early this morning here. Regarding tradesmen, the good ones have regular customers who don't ask for a quote and therefore are always busy and have little time to travel and give quotes for a job that they may not get. At least, that is my experience OG - I'm sorry that J didn't get the job but as you say, a good interview experience will boost his morale. I hope you get your repairs and replacements soon. I know that you have appliance insurances so I suppose that repairs have to be attempted. My OH was never interested in insurances, only the house and the car ! Son in law is hanging about in Perth, WA, waiting to go offshore. Since he left Scotland everything has been going wrong! The cat has brought mice into the house (live ones!), my daughter has a trapped nerve somewhere in her neck, causing great pain, the roof has sprung a leak and their oldest daughter has what sounds suspiciously like appendix pain. Oh dear !! I'm just pottering along as usual, doing what I feel like doing when the mood takes me... I know I've missed out replies to DIANE, PAT, CC, I read all your posts, thank you again!
In reply to Lindybird:
LINDY: I wondered how all of you were coping, especially those who are or have been travelling. The media reporting on the British fuel shortage is quite dire over here. I especially was concerned that you would have enough to get home, but I figured it would be nosy to ask. LOL! OG: Is the fuel shortage also in Scotland? I was concerned about you and Eagle-Eye--in case you would need to get to a hospital. Take care, all. P.S. I wasn't being judgmental. The entire U.S. federal government could shut down on Thursday and the country could default on our debt!!!
The sun came out here, mid afternoon when I was asleep! OG - Mixed news, then - nice to have a surprise visit from someone you want to see, but I'm sorry to hear about your daughters sciatica. Diane - Be as nosey as you like! I'll answer most things but might clam up on some, LOL!! Our big car holds a lot of fuel so we came on a nearly full tank. It's usually much cheaper here than where we live, so we used to fill up to go home, in the past. Prices vary widely throughout the country and of course are the most expensive on the motorways. There are, of course, lots of jokes going around about the shortages.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
