P&O Cruisers - What are things like where YOU are?


Recommended Posts

I have now got used to hospital appointments by phone but was surprised as I had a phone appointment due at 3 30 today.I had just finished speaking to my daughter so listened to see if there were any messages.Apparently my phone appointment had turned into a message from the doctor(presumably because I didn't answer the phone?!)Basically saying after reviewing my case and because of covid they would send another (telephone appointment) in 4 months.As it was at the Eye Hospital and they didn't even ask me any questions perhaps their vision is better than mine!!

Word of the day to guess (no Googling)

 

Halfpace

 

 

(yesterdays word pettifogging = placing undue emphasis on petty details; petty or trivial).

Sounds like a name that might be given to a slow native american.

But I guess it could have been used by some to describe how Boris has handled covid  not by me though, I would add.

I have one of these in my house and I can categorically assure you that it has nothing to do with the PM or Americans. I am being good and avoiding politics (for now 😈).

Might it be a clock of some sort?

 

It’s been an OK day here.  It’s a little warmer - positive temperatures all day from 9am and above zero temperatures forecast overnight.

 

My positive thought for today - apart from vaccination news, which sounds hopeful - is that the official sunset time for today is 4.24 but the actual *time of real darkness* will be half an hour later.  Not many more days till we don’t need draw the curtains till after 5

The frost and snow looks lovely from my living room window


I’m getting through a lot of bird food 

 

Mary Berry’s roasted sausage and potato supper is both quick to prepare and delicious 

 

Trump just might get his comeuppance!

 

They are my today positives, will that do? 😉

Tomorrow is Saturday and it is the weekend 🙂

For many of us, weekend is not much different from the other 5 days. For the ‘workers’  - enjoy your 2 days off.

I was going to post a similar comment

 

Our week is punctuated by Sunday roast - a habit I had previously broken.  So that’s a ‘meat & 2 veg’ type meal eaten earlier in the day than the other 6 days, with a light tea or supper later.

And The Repair Shop on Wednesdays! You can forget all your troubles watching the experts’ prowess 🙂

Actually from tomorrow I start 7 consecutive days of online ‘work’ meetings before another long break.

I like that a lot and reassuring that I am perhaps not the only person checking how many extra minutes of daylight we get each day.  It is an extra step not just to more daylight but also nearer to the summer months.  Strange what effect these times can have on us isn't it 🙂

After years of retirement from teaching, I still feel a sense of relief that I can enjoy Sundays without the burden of knowing there was lots of school work to be done  (I taught mainly exam classes; GCSE and A level with a smattering of GNVQ).  I loved the classroom part, but oh the preparation and marking workload!  😔.  I don't believe it's got any easier so I feel your Friday evening joy!
