What am I going to do today ? ??? That is the question ?....I had a good night sleep...so feel very buoyant....I can float with the clouds.... 8) I have put on my new cardigan and skirt.....Just to cheer myself up a bit.....


After finishing the usual chores, it will be time for Sunday lunch....and I had "S" deliver yesterday a packet of Italian mix antipasto and a bottle of Montepulciano di Abruzzo  Reserva controllata.....lovely red wine  :D on offer for a fiver.....


After my pisolino (siesta...) I shall beging to make a pretty lace dress for Stevens Christmas Fairy doll, to be put at the top of the Christmas tree....

Just learned from Google, that the cottage in the woods....Top of the Hill in Essex, the first home we bought....has been sold this past August for £1.180.000......                     
If only we had not been so rushed.....to come to Norfolk.... :'( :D   

But honestly, had such a good interesting life here ! Micky and I have had so many adventures !!!!  Do not regret a single day we spent together in this County !   

A lovely Sunday for all of us !   gmx

I had a grandstand view (via the new camera) of Mrs Gunga Din telling off one of the Pakistani ladies today. I could hear their raised voices but not their actual words. Then Mr Gunga Din came out and he was mooching around like a tame sheepdog. Its Mrs Gunga Din who wears the trousers. Eventually a young Asian man appeared (probably Pakistani lady's husband or relative) and Mrs Gunga Din had a go at him. He wasnt having any of it, turned his back on her and squared up to Mr Gunga Din. Mr Gunga Din made conciliatory gestures and the Pakistani couple departed.

Have no idea what it was about but 10 minutes of free entertainment. That little camera has a birds eye view right down the street and is hiding in a discreet little corner just above the garage door. You need to come right up to see it.
Rules are for the guidance of wise men and the blind obedience of fools.

I've witnessed that at first hand while getting a lift from an Indian I worked with driving through Slough. If I said in public the sort of thing he did in his car I'd be banged up.


I say Indian. In truth he wasn't. He was the child of Ugandan Asians who got the bums rush from Idi Amin and went to Canada where he was brought up before he came here for some reason. When his father died they all wanted to go to India - I think to scatter his ashes in the Ganges or something like that. As he'd never been there he had to have several injections and get certificates to say he'd had them before he could go. He was there maybe 2 or 3 weeks and picked up some diabolical lurgy or other. He had ages off on sick leave when he came back and when he did finally turn up he looked like death walking. He needed lessons on India from you crabby.

Please Note.  It would be nice if the topics discussed could reflect the subject indicated by the Title.   Sometimes it gets a bit confusing. Sorry to be a
nuisance, but it would help a lot.   No wish to offend anyone. Just a thought.  Thank you. gmx


Took the liberty of correcting the Title of this topic.  :D   gmx

Got to go to the health centre this morning for a blood test, I had one last week but for some reason or other they want a second one. I expect my red blood cells have gone on holiday again :)  This is a sign of blood cancer but it quite often happens to me, when the red cell drop in numbers. Not going to worry about it. Having to inject my self every 4 days to help my white blood cells. The consultant quite surprise that I am so fit and healthy.

Criticism noted. In future I will confine my posts in this thread to "sitting at my computer typing".

Going into the post office for the first time since lockdown began to post a file regarding my sister's house, the file being too big to be digitalised, to my solicitor. Hopefully, there won't be many other people there.
