Thanks for offering to help, Veronica. No doubt there will be last minute scurryings needed. When do you arrive?

 

I should be there around 6-7pm on Friday. Make some room in the fridge for the rosé, so you can drink it at the right temperature this time wine

I nearly was free again for Saturday- OH's normal sidekick for the baking/jam making section of the nearby village produce show is now available - but as I have mentioned OH is poorly at the moment so I will still be needed to go and judge instead of her.  frown

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

Tantalisingly close, Martin.

Feel free to drop in for even half an hour if the mood takes you. 

 

Edit:

Of course, it could be  day of stair rods. Who knows with this July we are having.

We are prepping the indoors as a precaution.

Fingers crossed that the rain buggers off beforehand.

I'll try that again!

Really sorry people, but I'm going to have to duck out...I somehow seem to have been volunteered into doing the catering for the kids party on sunday and I honestly have no recollection of being asked...someone has just assumed.

Initially I was told last sunday that I had offered to make 36 cupcakes...at that point I though I could still make the CSH do too, I could make the buns on Friday and ice them on sunday morning, but it's now become impossible...I'm so fed up...it's not as if I'm a real grandparent anyway!angry

Oh, Jan, what a disappointment - still, I suppose you could always send them along to the local supermarket, and tell them to buy it all .... and then give them one of these  tongue ..   well, perhaps not, as you still have to live with them!  big_laugh

That's a bummer, Janet. Never mind. I do hope they at least feed you well at that party!

That's the trouble with being a busy and helpful person - someone will always make the assumption that you will be free and willing to do them a favour.  big_hug

I'll try that again!

That's what OH found at the Jubilee party the village had- someone assumed she would help serve Jubilee cake all afternoon- so I was left minding 2 OAP's on my own all the time. (that's a bit tongue in cheek as I am an OAP as well wink)

That doesn't surprise me in the least Martin.  Mind you, there are OAPs and OAPs - don't you find?

How is your wife now, any better?

I'll try that again!

Thanks for asking Toni, OH is still poorly, though on the recovery road- getting some food in her now, but she lacks any energy, and takes to the couch with a blanket a lot. I do know she is recovering, I'm beginning to get my orders now, whereas a few days ago she did not know what was going on.
