Sleepless night again

Sleepless night again

Aches and pains in the legs again last night - painkillers did ease it a wee bit. But what did work was dragging out my old VHS player and watching "Sailor" made by the BBC in 1976. I served onboard The Ark at the time.

Watching this took me back in time and helped in taking my mind off my aching legs..........

soo long ago and so many memroys and so many good oppos (mates)

A good time in my life, a special time in my life.

It`s a funny old world :-)

John, my culinary disasters are legendary in this house!

I'm with you there, you can't beat cheese on toast, it hits the spot!

Will all the renovation work be done while you're still living in the house? xB


Yes the work will be carried out whilst I'm at home.

Wet Room has go-ahead.

Waiting for another visit etc re the lift.

Completed all my exercisess this morning and had 3 poached eggs & toast as a rewadr :-) :-)


Well done! Brian loves poached eggs. You wouldn't believe how many different

types of poachers he's tried aiming for perfection. We're both challenged by

the 'drop the egg in boiling water' method. Can't manage that at all! xB


I break the eggshell softly over a bowl and then - if the yolk has not brokne - slowly pour it into pan hot water, watch it until it is ready :-)


Thanks, I'll try to perfect that before he does! xB
