\A Very Good Morning x:lol: to you all
Hope there is not too much last minute shopping for you to do today ?
I'll be looking in a couple of times every day now until the lines and email open up again on Wednesday 28th at 10am.
Wishing you a Happy and Comfortable Wintertide.

    Hello you lovely ones, I hope your day is going well and that the odd festive sherry or two has slipped down a treat! It's a difficult day in the Daisy household (for me, anyway) as I am struggling with pain, guilt and tiredness: I burned my boats yesterday with doing various festive preparations and now Mr DD is coping (magnificently I have to add) with doing the Christmas dinner. I am feeling useless.

    Right, I have to return for another game of King's Court with my ma-in-law (glorified draughts and she is stuffing me 3 games to 1! :lol: ) Stuff hurts and I am a total gloom-bucket. :roll: Blasted arthritis. Take care, it's good to know you are there, it really is. Thank you. DD
    Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben

    Hi DD - hope the Daisy household lunch is going down a treat ? There's nothing like a bit of distraction therapy and playing silly games with family and friends to help you through the pain :mrgreen: . Bonus having folk around to help out and give you plenty of TLC.
    Take care everyone
