Thankyou TA, and gratefully accepted - I think we could all do with hugs now'n'again, ay?

Hubby's just gone to turn on the blanket, so I guess I'll be in my bed soon, too !! laugh

We do all need hugs now and then.  Or even the touch of a hand upon our own.

I haven't an electric blanket but I do have a fleece sheet to lie on and a fleece blanket on my quilt so I am warm.  My heating still hasn't been turned on.  

I'll try that again!

Thanks for the good wishes and hugs ladies, much appreciated.  Shelley I have tried a memory foam thing but found that once I was in position to sleep, I couldn't then move, having sunk into the mattress.  roll_eyes So I didn't keep it.

I hope that your job won't disappear totally, I can imagine how stressful things are for you right now.

I'll try that again!

Thanks for the kind words; my job will never disappear completely 

1 because the new centre manager loves me to bits!!!smilesmile ( she is also the sales        manager and I have had lots of excellent course reviews...)

2 because I have a legal guarantee of hours that they must give me or pay me the difference...or that is the idea anyway!

 

Just stressful cos the planning lady is useless to put it politely!

That's comforting to know that your job will be there, Shelley - phew!

Unfortunately there has to be a useless one in every situation !!! big_laugh
