When Girl Monday arrives she can put in further dirty clothing and then iron bedding washed yesterday.

  2. Forward Planning

    I want to try a loose plan to see if I can inch our way forward on a couple of issues.

    I stayed at my mums house for three days this week for I had not been up there for the last three weeks over school holidays and what not. I missed her as much as she missed me I did washing and toilets floors and bathroom, vacuum, massage, nails painted you name it we did it.

So I will just have to cope again with a trip to M&S by myself. Keeping smiling though.

I think Maureen is a little fed up of listening to her wedding plans and would appreciate care that is reactive not the latest gossip on Girl Friday's life. Let you know how it goes. Woops she is here now.
