    It is raining heavily here ... but the gardens need it .

    My car is not back from the garage yet ... but given some of the challenges that some of our members are facing, it is no biggy.

    Have a good day.

    While I remember, Prime Day today for those with Amazon Prime. Those daft Dash Bittons are on offer at £1.99 - each one gives you a £4.99 discount on the item they are linked to when you order. I haven't checked which are best yet this time but it effectively means a £5 item for £2 (last time it was 99p not £1.99, but still a discount).

    Hopefully this may be of use to someone - please report back if you find any worth getting.

    Good evening, JTS sorry about your results, sal I would think it's the steroid that making you wired, is it prednisolone 5mg tabs, so 20mg a day?, if you can maybe ask if taking them in the morning will help, some of the anti sickness meds can make you sleepy, which can be useful when trying to get some sleep, maybe just the daily routine being altered will help, good luck.

    Hi em, glad everything went ok for Riley
    Why can't I drive? Well I can barely even walk Had a silly mishap on Wednesday. Went to put a load of washing out and fell over the line prop. Landed face down on the grass. Managed to crawl to the line post and pulled myself up. Couldn't walk though. Managed to wake DD1 up by shouting her and she helped me in. A marathon wait in A & E followed. Luckily no serious damage just damage to the muscles and tendons in left leg. Getting about on crutches now and pain is getting better each day. I have some lovely black bruising and lots of swelling I am sure I will be mobile again soon. No biggy compared to what some peole are going through:

    Yep. These were also available with cute little animal designs and sometimes even came in 7s - embroidered with days of the week.

    Then you got to use your notelets to write the thank you letter for the hankies.

    Possibly with your new pen.

    Well, there really was no worm. Cunard's QE is still at sea. Some locals had said arrival due 6am. Wrong, but never mind.

    Their website is a bit baffling. It says the time on the QE is 10.11, presumably they are still in Dublin time-zone. They say their current location is Liverpool. It isn't unless they have an invisibility cloak. And their map shows Liverpool's location to be in Finland.

    So I give up for now.

    It's drying up a bit now, just very overcast and a bit drizzly but it was raining heavily earlier.

    I can the QE now, she's in the middle of the Mersey quite close to where she will dock.

    Webcam still has her where she was before. It should be showing the Liver Building from the angle she is now at.

    Just watched her do a very elegant 360 degree turn and reverse park! So she's facing down river in the right direction for leaving later on.

    Webcam now shows the gantries for the new container dock - in the distance on the right.

    Duvet cover now in drier. Feeling quite virtuous - and hungry - but then if breakfast was at 6-ish it must be nearly lunchtime!
