Fog across the fens

I ve been to work again ,and what a day to choose to go ,Rebecca picked me up at eight fifteen ,I had looked out when I got up it didnt seem too bad ,well it was barely light ,then as we got along the road ,there it was like a blanket,all the way ,we couldnt see,very far ahead but Rebecca is a good driver and was careful ,the thing is many of the roads ,as I said the other day, run along side drains and dykes ,from when the Fens were drained many years ago ,remember my entry about the Fens .So its a bit scary, many a car has ended up in there with often dire results ,Dont I do cheery entrys ?

We had a coffee morning which was marred because they were all missing Madge ,however they tried to be cheerful ,June came to talk to us about the extra care unit she will be managing ,and they have a party ,tomorrow evening to look forward too ,Emma had organised it before she left .And will be back for that ;I believe a presentation is planned .I finished at twelve thirty ,caught the bus into town ,I went to the bank ,and then instead of grabbing some Christmas shopping as Id planned ,I found my self in my favourite coffee shop ,with a cappuchino and a ciggy and was it Scarlett?from Gone With the Wind ,words ringing in my head.. Tomorrow is another day !then on to the bus for the fifty minute ride home ,still foggy !!My contact lenses have gone quite baggy ,with all the heavy peering Ive done through them today .

Maurice started at noon today ,so I left him in bed this morning ,obviously hed gone when I got home,he should be home at nearly midnight so I shall chill this evening; have a bath;  and watch some TV  ..Eastenders, Bleak House and Taggert ,always assuming I can stay awake ,can you remember the song ? The old grey mare ,she aint what she used to be .....Umm very apt !!

    Have a good evening, dont go out if you dont have to !with love Jan xx

Oh Jan a cappuccno and a ciggy oh dear they were the days. You will be glad to be home and cosy there is nothing like it on a winters night. By the way up here after 28thMarch yes you can have the coffee but no ciggy in public places thats when our new law comes in.  Bye Joan.

The Fens do sound like a scary place o be when the fog is down Jan, I don`t think I`d like to drive through them then I don`t like driving in foggy conditions anywhere.  There`s nothing like a good cappuchino, I like the ones they serve in M&S...lovely!  I wanted to watch Bleak House but I missed the first couple of episodes so I didn`t bother.  I`ve heard I`ve missed a good program. :o)

Capuccino and cigarettes always go down well with me too!! Strange how we're such a small country but our weather differs so much. here in brighton today we had wonderful sunshine and it was quite pleasant, not cold at all!! Jeannette.

I don't like driving in the fog, we are quite lucky as we don't really get it here.  Ciggy and cappuchino sounds good to me :)

I'm glad Rebecca's a good safe driver, otherwise you'll have us all worried :-(  Sorry to hear about Madge, I hope everyone gets a bit more cheerful at the party
