Sunny Saturday

What a contrast to yesterday the sun is shining brightly ,its just me thats foggy today . I cant seem to motivate my self at all .Maurice is at home today ,working again tomorrow though ,we ve been sitting over coffee; talking over different aspects of our jobs .When there is so much else we should be doing  Ar well !!

A big thankyou to all the lovely people who have sent me a  Christmas card ,we are getting quite a number now I must get the rest of mine finished ,I have sixty to do for residents ,at the Court and some communal ones for the other courts I worked on all year !Jeannette said her list gets longer each year ,well I know mine does ,I also kmow what it means to some of the residents to recieve a card  . whilst visiting them ,some of them have such a pathetic few ,I suppose as they get older their circle of friends,and family become fewer .After I finished the entry I did the other day about going back to work, and the day Id had,the post came and amongst some cards was a lovely home made from Madge ............ 

The minute Ive finished this entry Im going to do my hair,put my make up on and Im off to the shops Im going to take my shopping trolly which contains stuff to be off loaded at the charity shop .Shopping trolly ??yes Ive got one ,never mind the old lady bit were you get in everybodys way ,and run into folks !!its great; I wouldnt put my back through the stress of carrying loads ,tins ,veggys ,milk etc ,although at this time of year it does seem to be a requirment we all walk about with poly bags hanging off us ,well its no good sit ting here talking about it ,Im off to do it .

           Have a good Saturday, my friends ,  With love Jan xx

I used to have a shopping trolley. When the kids were small, I didn't have a car, it was pushcair in one hand and pulling the trolley with the other, trying not to lose the toddler in the crowds. Ah, those were the days!!! Good luck around the shops. It's sunny here too.

Have a wonderful sunny Saturday, Jan.  It's sunny here in Washington, too....but the thermometer outside my kitchen window says 26 degrees..I know you folks don't use degrees but I can tell you this much, it's below freezing.  Linda in Washington

I would have thought my Christmas card list would be shorter this year, but far from it...I hope I haven`t forgotten anyone....I mostly likely have!  Thanks for the card Jan , it arrived today. :o)

I don't blame you for having a shopping trolley ;-)  With my bike out of action that means I gotta carry my shopping and that's no fun!!  Thank you very much for my xmas card which I received this morning xx

I had a shopping trolley even when I was young!  You cannot beat them for taking the strain off your back and arms.  Yes, we are getting lots of cards coming in now. I miss the old days when there was a delivery on Sunday as well.  I am glad you send cards to the residents, must be sad when you have hardly anyone to bother.  Big hugs to you.
