What a great difference it makes when the sun is shining. Even ‘George’ Josh’s rocking horse (made by his grandpa) feels Summery. ( ignore Julian’s painting jumper on his saddle. Quite often George is a clothes horse- being a handy dumping ground for coats and such like when you walk in the house!) We have … More Summer comes to North Wales
Firstly – My Oven, remember it was being cleaned- well it is like a new oven. Definitely worth while having the oven professionally cleaned & although my Miele washing machine guy sweated blood and tears – he couldn’t get the conditioner section to empty. Unless I paid near enough £200 ( can’t remember- that’s only … More ‘Getting into Bed’……………………

When the snow eventually went, it was so nice to see colour again in the garden. The purple heather. Last Monday we … More one thing leads to another………………..
I saw this link in the the money section of the Radio Times. If you had set up a power of attorney– as we had for Josh -during the years 2013- 17, then the UK government was offering a refund scheme. I applied for the refund on line- it seemed pretty straight forward.- so we … More Power of Attorney refunds……………

Perhaps I was exhausted ( a mixture of my UTI, MS,H going to Aussie, & Josh here a week) in face I was very tired.
