Megs You're right! The home is full of memories and as I sit here at my computer weary (had to get up at 5.00am; it's my feet you see!) and ill at ease (feet again!) and gaze about me I remember all the happy hours we spent painting ceilings, balanced on a plank suspended between two ladders, doors, window frames and all the carpet stains donated by our Rufus and Jessie over the years as they marked their territories.
Carpet off-cuts cover most of their major mistakes, although these will be the death of me, as the OH&S therapists keep pointing out whenever they call.
Anyway, it's a weekend of toasts to our health and anniversaries;
Golden; 50 years in OZ.
Pearl 30 years since I retired.
Diamond 75 years since my "Call-Up" for National Service; Two and a half years spent in Egypt. Changed my life forever!
I'm toasting your health as I proceed; nearly half the week-end has gone already!
Jaxjacky Almost forgot a toast for City! How good are they!? Watched them on TV playing Munchinggladrap; Two "Away" goals so should survive their home game at Etihad.
That stadium looked vey smart, but not good minus spectators. Wonder if Boris will allow them back in time for the next game although I think they shouldn't be allowed in order to be fair to the visitors.
Our "Rules" have been eased in time for the opening of the football season, of course! "Half capacity" means 30,000 at some grounds! No thanks!
We're now allowed up to 30 visitors into our homes! I'm struggling to get three at the same time even including nurses. And they're not allowed to bring "refreshments, of course, no matter what time of day or night!
Weather is cooler than average, dry and Summer ends officially tomorrow.
So let's see what tomorrow brings!
