  1. Morning all. London Marathon day, so it must be Spring! It’s a lovely sunny day here, though that nightly wind is still around All seems very calm round these parts. I have £93 in FCC (don’t ask me how - I don’t understand how the financial stuff from cancelled cruises was worked out). It’s not exactly burning a hole in my pocket, and my TA tells me it’ll stay on my account indefinitely, but I’m wondering if I should book something from the latest release? I’ll look again today
  2. Afternoon all Just checking in, though I have nothing to say - except all the best to those with medical appointments etc at the moment We’ve had quite a nice day. Bright & sunny but the strong wind has dropped. It’s still not terribly warm though
  3. Good news Jane (except for lazy Teddy, of course) @indiana123 - hope you got some sleep in your expensive hotel room. Perhaps you’re already asleep again and undergoing the procedure? Very best wishes for that. Constant pain is so terribly draining and disruptive It’s a bit drier and milder here. We’re off to the caravan for a few days, so we’ll have a change of scene, at the very least
  4. So miserable tonight. If we were at the coast I would say it was sea fret or east coast haar. Horrible A local restaurant has changed hands so we gave it a try Mixed arancini/padron peppers gnocci/asparagus risotto All very tasty (and, I notice now, veggie). Apologies for starting some before picturing
  5. All the best @indiana123 Phew! Chatty day, or what? Vaccinated with a gramophone needle as my old gran used to say! It’s lovely to see the thread so busy I’ll polish my halo and say that we led the Wednesday walk this morning, notwithstanding the rain. Intrepid band of crumblies we are🙂. 9 humans, 2 dogs today. Absence notes from 2 (and a dog) having a break in Devon, who would normally lead; 2 entertaining toddler granddaughter; 1 pleading a pulled muscle; and 2 soon to back from Fred worldie Here’s a pic. There aren’t too many thatched castles around. You can get a holiday let in this one, owned by the Landmark Trust
  6. Good news for Graham - I am pleased for you Jane - hopefully a better sleep tonight, now you are more used to the idea of something not quite right (but hopefully it can just sit there without bothering you Julie - hello and welcome
  7. Hello Welcome to the forum Your question is in danger of getting lost amongst the omnivore v restricted diet debate, so I’ve brought it back to the top I can’t think of any reason why you shouldn’t be able to book for 2 Have you tried it? Bookings should be open now, I think
  8. Wet and windy again *sigh* Jane - hope you’re sleeping ok after your medical news. All the best for that. And Indiana too. Our health really is the base line isn’t it? Everything depends Anybody feel like this?
  9. In retrospect, the closing of so many of the old style cottage hospitals seems to have been a really poor decision
  10. That’s all sounding positive Jane. Enjoy the clean hair - that will give you a great boost. Will you be ok drying it, or will you have someone help? We’ve got very mild, incredibly windy, dry weather this morning. It must be very difficult for those in the extreme west, who are getting the full force of Storm Kathleen Have a good Saturday/weekend everyone. Bon voyage to anyone embarking a cruise today or tomorrow
  11. Oh Jane 😱 You’ll need to withdraw from the London marathon then? Seriously, I’m so sorry it happened but thankful you haven’t done any serious harm Bet you’re stiff and sore today 🤕 Others have offered good advice. I’ll also suggest a handful or two of Epsom salts in a hot bath, if you can manage getting in and out. Don’t drink it!!! Hope your recovery is smooth and speedy Whilst I’m here SUE - I’m so glad you got on your Easter cruise Everybody - Hello 👋. See you soon. Have a good day
  12. Lovely food pics from Graham and lovely Caribbean pic from Michelle Here’s a nice pic I found elsewhere. I’m going to take a break from the forum for a while now. See you later. Best wishes to all.
  13. You are very good at finding the right words Jane. I hope they comfort Graham & Pauline It’s all very quiet in my world at the moment. Sometimes I think that’s the best way to be - no drama! Anyway, just a pottering about and sport Saturday for us. Mr Eddie will go to watch local rugby and I’ll be a telly sports fan - not sure whether ⚽️ or 🏉 Have a good day everyone
  14. It’s one of the forum’s quiet periods at the moment It feels very much like the seasons are changing. Shame that we don’t get a clock change for another fortnight. 🎶 If I ruled the world 🎶 we’d change mid-February Sorry to hear you weren’t feeling great kalos. Fingers crossed you’ll be fit and fine in no time
