Happy Guy Fawkes Night (Bonfire Night) to everyone in the U.K. Do not forget to stay safe if you are having fireworks, handle them correctly and please do remember to keep your pets inside.
With what has been happening in the Government over the last few months, maybe Guy Fawkes should be hailed as a hero and not a villain.
I thought it was time I touched base and wrote a few words in here.
I have not heard the latest about the postal strike but it does seem that all the junk mail is being delivered but none of the important things.
In less than three weeks our building work should begin. Cannot say I am looking forward to it, some of the windows we did not have done last year are being replaced and if the weather is cold it will not be a pleasant experience. Before then, we have to figure out where to store the things that are in are sun-lounge. One table and two chairs, a two-seater sette, a cabinet with plant on top, a large dresser full from top to bottom with household things, a large rug and the lino has to come up as well. Finding space for them is going to be difficult. We are going to be busy.
Mike's operation draws ever closer, only 12 days to go after today. Becky's operation will be on the 10th December. So what with all the building work and three medical appointments for me, we are going to have our hands full.
The leaves are all but gone from the trees now but there is still some Autumn colour from the berries and from the Chrysanthemums.
Hard to believe that Christmas is looming once again. I have not even thought about Christmas shopping, too much else on my mind at the moment.
Well, not much else to say for now. I shall let you all know how Mike gets on and I will take pictures later when building commences.
Take care everyone. Once again, be careful with those fireworks.
