    Thanks tweets re Oral B

    Had to walk back to Ts tonight as I found earlier I had mislaid my shopping bag & had to pay for a bag at lunchtime.
    The bag wasn't at home, so I retraced my walk hoping to find it - zilch
    Whilst in Ts I asked at CS if it had been handed in but again nothing I just hope someone will be using it instead

    Anyway still huge display stand full of the 50p Walkers - no SEL, had informed friends, so I gathered up several more & then thought I see if the reductions had been done...
    Cookies, pastries, avocados, grapes & bread.
    Went to SS & of course no bag again had to buy a bag

    shame on me 2 bags bought this year

    Thank you so much for your good wishes, I am completely overwhelmed and "welled-up". I may not have been able to ring my bell at the chemotherapy unit, but you beautiful people have more than made up for it by a long way, and I shall always remember it

    So much for getting a restful night. My little girl dog started to go into labour when I got back from chemotherapy.
    She has been having strong contractions, but still at stage 1 - the panting and nest-building stage in her whelping box.
    The problem is she won't settle without me holding her paw, as soon as I let go she whines and gets up.
    So I'm spending the night on the sofa next to her. She needs me and won't understand if I leave her.
    What timing!
    Thank you all once again for your kind words. May peace and love be abundant in your lives x

    annoying our kids is one of the few things that makes it all worthwhile ...

    Eldest son asked me to bring a tupperware box which it turned out he wanted to use for lunch sandwiches - bare in mind that I have offered him numerous other much more valuable useful items, all refused. I could take a fence .....

    instead I have amused myself for hours by sending him pictures of tupperware boxes in various colours and designs and sizes with comments on their various merits
