I'm back .....went to a restaurant called
"99" in Stratford ,very nice and lots of choices
so much so Linda could not decide what she
wanted .....
I had crispy chicken tenders with a small serving of fries
broccoli and a cup of seafood chowder as a starter

Linda ended up having a bacon cheese burger that FILLED
the plate ,fries and a cup of chowder....
She was relating stories about her Greek husband George
,she said after 50 yrs of marriage its a good job he makes
her funnytvprog at some of the things he does or says
He is VERY cheap in some ways ,I was saying how Gil enjoyed
just taking a :driver: down the old Post Rd {the major highway
I-95 replaced it as this goes all the way down the coast}
She said not George talktohand ,George is very frugal she said
Anyway had a good natter and she said she only works three days
a week ,and even after she gets home should I just want to get out
for a coffee she will be right there ....

Making pork chops in my Air Fryer for Blaine ,funny as that was where
Linda was going after leaving me first to the library as she listens to the
TALKING BOOKS while she drives or walks etc ,but she takes them out
from the Library ,then she was looking for a Air Fryer and wondered
what they were like ,so was happy to hear all about my experience
with mine as I LOVE mine ....

Just got the new Microwave that will replace the one over the range
as it is REALLY showing its age now even Spencer mentioned it

As to wiping the shopper when I go shopping ...Like Marge
our supermarkets have the wipes at the door ,or I wear my gloves
,and I am not saying you cannot do this that or the other for fear
of getting sick Vicky ,only that you have more CHANCE picking up something
in a crowded public place confused2

I do not take anything so considering the amount of times I get
sick count my blessings ,,,used to take a multi vitamin but read about them
somewhere doing SOMETHING some years ago and both Gil and I stopped

Ahhh good idea Bond using the cardboard ,and SO CLEVER of you

I brought home 5 chicken tenders as they gave me TOO many
so will have them for MY dinner later with some Mac N Cheese
I have for Blaine with the pork chops .....

Any L & L's going

No we don't have that at our supermarkets Margaret....just at the hospitals and doctor surgery, though I know Sylvia used to carry a bottle of the hand stuff around with her and she used it at every occasion. Oh yes you hear how you have to be so careful at these self service buffets or pick and mix sweets confused2 I know my mate Lynne had to be so careful going out for a meal etc.....in fact just going out when she was going through her cancer treatment because of what she could pick up.....from having 2 or 3 holidays a year she went for years not going any where, she had to miss Susan's wedding (Lynne is Susan's Godmother) and was so upset about it, though Susan sent her the details of their itinerary for the day then when they got them the DVD of their wedding day.....that's when Lynne spotted their friends daughter in the church "What's Helen doing there?" to discover Helen was an ex workmate of Susan's and had come down for the wedding with her husband and stayed over night in the Lodge grounds where a few of the guests had stayed.....we stayed at the Coombe Lodge where Susan & Matt had their reception. Lovely place and the place Lynne & Chris would have stayed if Lynne had been able to make it. Sad Lynne & Chris have not met Matt yet, Lynne always used to say "I've got to give the ok as well"

I can't take multi vitamins they upset my tum, I do have an iron tablet but just one a day instead of the 2 I should take.

Later.......

I have mentioned before that our local
supermarket does have moist wipes available
for those who want to wipe down the handles
and baby seats of the cart they use as well as
their hands.
On board the Queen Mary 2 they had the pump bottles
to put a little hand sanitizer on your hands before
they sat you in the dining area.
Some viruses are spread by people coughing or
sneezing into their hands, others are left on any surface
they have touched like at a self service buffet or
the utensils. The viruses or bacteria can live for
several hours where it is deposited.
I always washed my hands after I come home first
thing so I did not pass on any germs to Peter as
he had a compromised immune system from his
MS shots.
Melanie is in the same position while she is taking
her Crohn's medicine as it also suppresses the
natural immune system, leaving her open to
anything that is going around like her current
cold. which has gone through her circle of friends
like wildfire.
At our age its the possibility of Pnuemonia that
is the killer of the elderly. I think I can get
by with just a flu shot this year.
Besides my multi vitamin every day, I take an extra
C and Zinc lozenge every day also to rev up
my immune system a little more.
I rarely get sick and I am not one of those worry
wart type of people about cleanliness either.
Its just taking care of myself like I would anyone
else.
Sun is trying to come out here but have heard that
though we have only light mist here, in some places
it is thick fog!
Only six of us last night but it was a lively bunch.
It was at a typically American coffee shop called
CoCo's I had a Chicken,Avacado Chibata sandwich.
It had fresh sliced red onion in it and it came with
French fries (string type).

Tonight its my support meeting as usual.
Above all else this program has taught me so
many life skills, not just how to live with addicted
or formally addicted people who will never be
completely 100% normal even in recovery.
I am living my life not theirs!
God Bless. TTFN

talktohand  Come come Mistress Carole you'll be saying next we can't go to any school events to sit in the hall or go to the theatre just in case those nasty little germs jump on us.     BTW are you saying you wipe down the shopper  handles?     No of course I don't Carole as we said not that long ago we ate dirt when we were little.    or littler  funnytvprog         



Is the cat ok Bond..... talktohand  forget the shelf and the things on it is the cat ok?

Oh go on Carole start WW111  funnytvprog  go on go on  

I can never understand people (men or women) who use the F or C word in writing  and certainly not when you're having an row with someone on a website.  Not needed, I always think they lose their argument when they have to resort to using those words.....specially  them.  



So you don't pick up germs going to the shops or out for a meal then?  

And on that note .....we're off to Palmers.

Have you passed my message on to June?  Smile

Good heavens most of the time you find about 6 people in the cinema .....specially during the day when we go unless it's a film like the one yesterday and it was busy.....but I think you can get a cold going into any shop, restaurant etc  so to stay away from the cinema so you don't pick up a cold is plain silly.

Mine will go.....I don't take anything though.

Morning......and I've got the sniffles.        said on Monday she'd got a cold, didn't know where she'd got it from (she becomes a drama queen  "How have I got this cold where's it come from" .....and then asked me if I had given it to her.  Shocked  I told her I've not had a cold....well I have now.    

Oh Bond it was at Mile Oak, Tamworth.....we're still thinking about it (or should I say David is)      
it's early days.

I do like that sea horse Bond.

Finished my book, didn't enjoy it.....not a good writer, we all know Princess Margaret was a madam but this book was just playground gossip.       Started reading my next book....written by the Countess of Carnarvon  about Lady Catherine 6th Countess of Carnarvon  (Highclere Castle)   I read the first one she wrote about Almina the 5th Countess and it was good.

Later....

Hi Carole......you don't have to go public if you win the lottery here either.....they like you to but if you say "No" then you don't. Though of course the papers do try their best to find out ..... confused2

Ah but Carole when you "type" the F word in a conversation there's no excuse.....shouting at some one and saying it is one thing if that's the way you talk but to type it he's making a constant effort to use the F word.

Oh and it wasn't because she was black he didn't want to sit next to her because she had been sitting in her seat first and he sat in the empty seat next to her ....he lost his rag because she was old and slow....in fact disabled. Yes he brought her colour into it but that was him being the nasty sod he obviously was and attacking her by throwing her colour in. Tell June from me "More power to her elbow"

Umm one of my fav's Bond Maltesers
don't mind if I do ....

Feeling a bit better this morning in fact
had a pretty good sleep last night and woke at 4am
ALL on my OWN as Buddy has taken these last couple
of days to sleeping on my PC chair .....

Meeting up with Linda at 1130am for lunch ,and the
weather although on the cool side will be dry sunny
and around 52f by this afternoon ....

I know you do all this work for the Leading Players
for zero pay Bond but who pays for the materials
that you knock up and paint confused2

Well it seems no one won the other large lotto last
night Power Ball ,as it is now up to 750mil
Who ever won Mega Millions  in South Carolina we may
never know ,as certain States have that you do not have
to go public ,so have no idea if its only ONE person ,who
after taxes should get around 960mil ,or if its a group
of people confused2  just hope its someone who NEEDS
it say from after the Hurricane went through there ....

Anyway GOOD MORNING LADIES .hope you had a good night

Have to see if I can calm one of my sons old friends who is going
to the UK with a party of 300 for New Years from Puerto Rico where
he lives ,as he made a comment on FB about that twit on that
Ryan Air flight who refused to sit next to the black lady {she had
it seems also  just lost her husband } ,my sons friend said in
a few swear words what he thought ,and my long time friend
June over there took exception to his language ,and I see he just
said something BACK to her about it headbanger

I told her I do not like it when some people throw in the "F" word etc
with their speech ,but that is how SOME people are ,and I said to her
he is OK just likes to "talk the talk" .....OI VEY

Marge see Melanie had a "HERD" of Turkeys running through
her place ,she should have grabbed one for Thanks Giving

So back later on folks

Carol, its only to be expected as it is very
early days yet.
I found myself at a loss because I was so used to the routine
of checking on Peter's welfare ahead of my own.
I could not concentrate on reading a book and only scanned
the newspaper.
I get mad at him sometimes, so got angry at his photo
letting him know what a mess his book keeping was and
how much rubbish he kept in his files.
I also tell him how much it hurts some days not having
his hand to hold or his arm round me but I wouldn't want
him to suffer any more than he did.
He lived up to his responsibilities as a husband and father
and way beyond and was a brave warrior about his illnesses,
I could not have asked for more in a life partner.

If I could only find out what the H**L he did with the
Bloody wedding album!!!!!

There are so many "safe" places in this house that its no
wonder we have not found it yet. I am not giving up hope,
I treat it like one of his puzzles yet to be solved.
I have my own "safe" places too that I have lost things in.
I found an earing yesterday, now if I can just find out
where I put the other one!
That's why I won't let anyone in my bedroom.
It needs to be excavated a layer at a time and documented.
So far two large boxes have come out of there.

At the moment I am dealing with an inflammation in my "good"
eye its probably from all the pollen in the air that the trees
are throwing out. The routine is a sinus pill to help them drain
and anti histamine to cut out the response and eye drops
to ease the itch. It looks like a Halloween scary face right now.
It gets better as the day goes on, It will take a few days for
it to settle down again but I know its not "pink eye".
Its not sticky.
At least I can cover it up wearing my sunglasses when I go out,
its so bright here you gotta wear shades!
(There was a ZZ Tops song called that I believe.)
The Big Red car mats came yesterday so another item that I
can install on my own.
The sun visors and seat belts(when They come) have to be installed
by Mr. Amadeus . Then the interior will be finished.
The outside looks great still so that only leaves the engine to
be dealt with from then on. The beast is a force to deal with
at over 5 Litres or 340 horses under the hood. Shocked

Bins are out, cats fed, now its my turn to eat.
got one more bill to make out and I am on my way to
the main post office.
TTFN

Oh the film was so good.  I'll have to inform Susan on Friday when I speak to her, she was saying she might go to see it.    And it was busy.....usually it's just a handful in there but today it was pretty full.  

Yes after we dropped  we went into Tamworth looking at this car David had seen online at the Mercedes garage....only 2 years old and low mileage .....   It's dark  red.. .......then we went in M&S to buy a birthday present  and have a nibble.

Not sure who Bond was following though......just that number plate to see who was driving it. funnytvprog

Hello Bond ,after all that
looks like you will be all set for the day

Popped to the store real quick as needed a
couple of items and ran over to Barbs on the way home
as I gave her an old Rapid wave Cooker  I had and there
was a part I found that went with it
Found she was sick had picked a cold up

Nippy here as the winds blowing hard ,so buddy and I
are sitting in the bay watching tv

Are you for REAL Bond seeing Vicky or are you joshing us

Good afternoon all, sorry my mistake it was three courses for £6, it is a training restaurant so to make sure they get to come every thing a table of two has to have different menu or different choices, our was a table of six so really we should only have two of the choices but there is four starters, four main and four puddings
So I had parsnip soup, gamon egg chips and tomato, sponge and date pudding with custard very nice
Miss Vicky has gone to Tamworth M&S for a bet, Ive just followed her up the A5 with a number plate like SXY 1 she is easy to spot :driver:

Hello Vicky so what time are you and
going to the pictures then ?

Your right as well THAT IS cheap £6 is only $7.75 over here
what do you get in the four courses Bond ?

Feeling emotional today for some reason ,keep
tearing up and just realized it was three months
ago yesterday that Gil passed away

I miss him most during the day having no one to
converse with should I want ,or not what ever the case
When the lads come home Spencer is in and out and only
as it should be ,and by the time Blaine gets home I am normally
in bed ,so seem to find myself alone most of the time ...

Guess I have to find something to do with my spare time
talktohand  I know I see Linda and even Barb once in a while
and would not want anyone here 24X7 ,but its certain times it hits me harder
like today for some reason crying

Four courses for £6 Bond.....wow now that's cheap. when I go to the Harvest with Bev it costs us £8 to have a small portion of chips and a pot of tea for two. talktohand ok you can have another pot of tea or a coffee as many times as you like but you don't do you .... confused2 but then look at the prices of Dobbies food.....and to be honest that place has gone down hill, but the price of the food is still high. Don't mind paying if it's worth it.....Dobbies isn't. Anyway that's a good deal Bond.....not that I could eat 4 courses these days....or even 3.

Been doing the big shopper this morning ....so we're stocked up.

Back later.....

 Bond are you still Sleep
starting off your chat with GOOD EVENING funnytvprog

And looks like SIR G has logged on to ask Vicky how her visit
to the flicks went with ,so hope she checks her PM's
Well she is the ONLY one he speaks to  

Well the Mega Million lotto is back down to 40mil so looks like like
SOMEONE HIT IT ,and it was NOT ME or Blaine crying
again all large numbers bar two in the 60's so probably a QUICK PICK
And the ONE winning ticket was sold in South Carolina headbanger

Going to be gusty wind today but worse tomorrow although dry

They are watching close this Hurricane Willa that looks like it will bring
us some rough weather Saturday morning with winds and heavy rain
Talking power outages as there are so many leaves still on the trees as we
are late turning this year .....

Hope Marge had a good night ,still a last chance to be a MILLIONAIRE
as Power Ball is tonight and sits at 640mil

Back later .....  LOVE all those people Bond ♪ Smoke gets in your
eye eye  ♪♪

Quite overcast and misty again this morning.
just got notification that the floor mats
for Big Red are being delivered today.
The seat belts will be along when there is
new stock available.

Has a little chat with Ian again yesterday,
It seems he only just found out that Jim is
moving back in with Melanie ahead of the
agreed upon date .
There is a reason behind it as Melanie wants to
declare bankruptcy as she is about $15,000
in arrears on her medical bills and other things
on her credit cards.
This is only two years after me bailing them out the
last time. Well, not this time!
We believe they will be doing this every 2 years in
the future unless they straighten themselves out
financially.
I do understand that some of it was for the weekly
treatment of her PIC line but she hasn't had it since
the Surgery, a whole year ago.
Its just too easy to bung expenses on a credit card and
forget about it as you have to only pay a minimum
amount each month. but they forget about the interest.
She is on a program for low income families for her
Biologic meds so that's not a big strain on the budget
anymore.
The two of them can qualify for assistance if they prove
that medical costs take too much out of their income
each month.
The mortgage is paid up, so they only pay a ground rent
and have a investment account with the owners of the
property the home stands on but that cannot be touched
unless they move out.
They probably cannot even afford to rent anything else.
What with first and last months rent and cleaning deposit
due up front, they will never be able to afford it.

I know its been a bad year for them what with Jims relapse
last Xmas and the struggle to get him sorted out again .
She has not asked me for any money yet and I am not
volunteering anything at this point.
Ian wanted to make sure I did not fall for another sob story.
I assured him that I was willing to give them a clean slate last
time but it was a once only deal.

I did the same with Vincent.I only pay him what I would have given
him monthly but now its a lump sum once a year and he seems
content with it. (I carry on with this because Peter wanted me to)
Another soul losing most of his life to drug addiction.
He is now 70 yrs. old and not in good health but at least he goes out
to swap meets and boot sales and buys something he can refurbish
and sell on at a higher price.
Jim and Melanie are not even doing anything to help themselves at
this point. They can work and collect disability up to a certain amount.
So there is nothing stopping them from at least trying.
I am not sure its a good idea to be back together this soon but my
daughter was always impulsive ,not looking at the whole picture.
I have not power to stop her doing what she is doing but I won't
be acting as a giant ATM to get them off the hook once again.
Whoo, that feels better, thanks for bearing with me.
TTFN

 Carole you were telling us about your breakfast with Barb "came to $15 so reasonable" .....THAT'S what I was on about, not the prints Mark had sent to you.

Yes we took photos of St Mary's Hall as well Carole.   ....though no tables & chairs out at that time,  obviously a later idea. 

Been to Woodlands got some more plants to go in the borders front and back.....Pansies this time Carole.      

I had a jacket potato and salad.....and a    of tea.    David had his fish, chips and mushy peas and walnut cake....and a        Chilly out.

Not $15 Vicky spent a total of $60
that included postage sending them airmail
and he registered them which probably cost more
as I had to sign for them ,took a week to get here
I do not and have not been able to splurge before
so I am having a good time ,but all done now with spending
except ONE last appliance I need to replace ,Spencer
had bought a large microwave that fits above the stove
called Magic Chef ,and its not heating food like it used
to as he bought it years before we moved in ,so want to replace
that ,and THEN I am done ,as have the blinds I wanted now
I could replace my sofa etc but for WHAT confused2  its
still functional not ripped and I have very few visitors
so will do me for what ever time I have left in this world

Was thinking about your dream Marge could be because
your still missing Pete {of course you are} and this is your
sub consciousness telling you
I am trying to do what my GP suggested when I said I keep
replaying the day Gil passed in front of me ,and think of
the time he was younger instead of how he had become these
last few years

Glad Susan got back OK then  Mark  just said the chairs  are also
in Hays Lane near St Mary's hall ,must be a coffee shop or something
there now confused2
I told him that is where years ago my Mum had to get her child
allowance from that my dad  sent a WHOLE 10/- a week

Hi Gang.......sorry I didn't get back in yesterday.....I was watching a couple of things we'd recorded and then it was bed time.

$15 for all that isn't too bad Carole  .....glad you met up with Barb.  

That was a strange dream Margaret.

Have a good day with your friends Bond.......Susan got back from Ireland last night at 10-20, they were an hour late boarding so she had to inform Matt she'd be later getting in, he was picking her up.     She telephone  me from Dublin airport to have a natter.   Smile

We have small tables & chairs around the restaurant area near the Belgrade Theatre Carole.....that's very pretty with the waterfall.     You see a lot of people with posh camera's taking photos around that area.

Later..... new avatar is another part of Spon Street with the very old houses.

Good evening ladies, Marge the carpark thing reminds me of the time I used to drive a white Range Rover (not my own) but you could find it in car park anywhere a big iceburg of a thing until I went in it to the Royal Show ground early but when we came to go there was fields of white Range Rovers
Its gone very cold now so moved to I think you call them lounge pants over or joggers over here

Its a bit foggy here this morning so it
might be an indication that our Indian
summer is over, one never knows here
as its the same temperature and humidity
level as it was the last few days.

Had a strange dream about Peter last night.
I won't say nightmare as it wasn't like that.
I was a mish mash of a dream I have had before
about looking for my car in a huge parking lot
and not finding it and dealing with Peter on one
of his bad days when he was having one of his
spastic episodes.It was when he was still able to
walk but had overtired himself.

Serious work today, filling out and returning my
Property tax forms with my yearly payment.
Its not a huge amount but they are sticklers for
everything being correct down to the badge
number of who to send it to, which is to be
repeated on the envelope and check!
There are actually two payments in November
and February but it can be paid together putting
both forms in the one envelope and the others
in another envelope!
As there are two properties its two different offices!
I have to be so careful not to mess up or it will be returned
and then I will have to pay a late payment!
It has to go today so it will arrive in Sacramento by Nov. 1st.
Think I will need at least two coffees before I start this!

Checked in with Ian yesterday as I remembered him saying I could
pay online but only if I had previously cleared it with my bank,
A special kind of e-pay I believe but he said I could do it
easier by sticking to a check.
I don't like doing anything to do with banking online as its
not as secure as it should be . Most of the companies I buy
stuff from have secure payment sites and I have never had any
problems with them for years and years.
With a credit or debit card I can at least cancel it straight away
if its compromised. but getting my account details and wiping
out my account is a big hassle I don't want to go through!

Ian says he and Rebecca are currently out of work so they are
taking the opportunity to do some pruning in their 12 month
garden before the cold weather kicks in.
Melanie has come down with a chest cold but I have no sympathy
as she is smoking when she should not be, so has a smokers
cough anyway. The surgeons warned her about smoking in future
after the surgeries last year but at the first sign of stress she is back
puffing away. She quit for weeks before the surgery as it was demanded
that she do so or they would not operate.
I wonder on her check ups if she has been honest with them about
her smoking habit . We will wait and see.
Its harder to quit than heroin for some people. especially if
you are addicted to other substances even if you overcome them.
Its like taking a pacifier from a baby.

Sun is trying to come out here. Both babies are asleep on the floor
by the door ,ready for the moment I turn off the computer and
go out of the room, ready, set, go!

 I am back ,and see I STILL did not get
the "info" right  about    Ah well
put it down to "OLD AGE"

Picked Barb up and took her to a Diner I have
never been too called "White's Diner" used to be run
by some Polish people ,but look more Mexican now
but the breakfast was really nice ,plenty on your plate
Barb decided to have the same as me scrambled egg
bacon {three large slices } and home fries {cut up potato's
and onion done on the grill top as they do in a diner} and
I had WW toast she had Rye and OJ  and unlimited
as she kept coming to ask if we would like another
cup , came to $15 so reasonable as well as they have ALL
gone up from where you used to only pay $4 each .

And we sat and talked for an hour and were not bothered or given
the evil eye  that we were there too long cheers

Dropped her off at home came home and just raked the back and front grass
to collect some of the BILLION leaves that are starting to fall ....

Now I ACHE so me and catmilkbowl  are going to sit while dinner is cooking
and I just took a pill

So back later

Bond you follow orders SO WELL {yes dear no dear}
And do lets see your new purchase

Yes any second hand electric goods have got to be tested Bond......can't be sold unless they are.  

Oh after the dancing yesterday telephone  me, well it wasn't quite after it was as soon as the vote was cast to who was leaving, telephone     "WHY DID THEY SAVE SEANN?"      was not a happy bunny.  Livid she was LIVID. I chickened out saying "Well though neither of them were very good Seann just pulled it off" she would have been round to wallop me.

Well it's lovely out.....well when you're in the sun but when it goes in it's a bit chilly walking around.  

The reason it was changed to Wednesday carole was when  said telephone  "That Freddie Mercury film is at the cinema on Monday....can we go?"   I said I'd check up the times.....though on checking on the times I found out it wasn't being shown until Wednesday,    so didn't change our minds as such.

The Spon Street photo was taken in 2011....when we'd gone to the Cathedral, and Holy Trinity Church and  other places in Coventry to look around and photograph.....we've got older, much older houses in Spon Street also, which I took photos of.     We seem to have gone to loads of places in the year 2011.    Our trotting around year.   Smile

Nearly finished my book.....not that good.

Yes Freddie did have a great voice.....the music was good.    Oh we have an LP of The Mama's and the Papas and 3 albums of The Carpenters.....Karen's voice was wonderful.   We did try to get tickets for one of their concerts but though we queued up round the block before we got to the box office they'd sold out.

The photo I'm seeing isn't too big Carole.....I'll have to borrow David's iPad so I can look at a bigger view.      I did see "an" elf didn't know if it was the one I sent you or not.      I've got Marryn (my friend Janice's granddaughter) a teddy dressed as an elf for Christmas. funnytvprog

Sorry about that Carole, you should be able to
post on FB messenger OK
but as you know I have a new cell phone so will
make sure you have it for the future.

Late on Parade again I know but all this social
life is wearing me out, out Wednesday, out
Thursday and out Friday! :-D

It has been in the high 70s -80s here during the day
and no cloud cover so very bright outside.

Have ordered a whole set of front seat seatbelts for
BR. They are on back order at the moment as grey
seems to be the popular color of the moment.
At least I can get a quality after market product
that Classic Industries puts their reputation behind.
They equal Federal standards for such products.
This started with one man and a Camero who wanted
parts for his car so he started bartering with others and it
ended up being a world wide business!
He is situated in California so within 50 miles of where I
live, not in the Midwest somewhere.

Freddy Mercury had a vocal range like no other except
Steve Perry of Journey. Among the ladies it was Mama
Cass and Karen Carpenter for vocal range.
Freddy proved it by singing opera late in his career.
Having sung in school choir for four years.
(I had a high soprano voice) High enough for dogs to hear!
I seem to be able to pick out voices that have that certain
something in their talent.

Cats followed me in here this morning, Jagger is on the bed
curled up like a black pudding and Tabbitha is on the floor
in a sun beam looking like a meatloaf!

No plans today but will be ordering some more stuff on line
for me this time!
Its so late that I think I will be having brunch this morning.
Its scrambled egg sandwiches I think with a little bacon.

We saw the clip the last time we went to the cinema to see the "Book Club" which was brilliant, so funny, anyway the clip we saw of the Freddie Mercury film was really good, as you say the music was good, now is a fan and she's read the book all about Freddie.....so we thought we might as well go and see it. confused2 I'll let you know if I tap my foot.
