Shattered now, today was very busy, didn't help that the barcode reader broke in the main shop and they nicked mine so I had to put in the item codes by hand all afternoon. Took more on cards than I have taken in total any weekend day this month

Dickhead from up the road has 2 vans, 2 Range Rovers, 2 MPVs parked all over the place. And at 6'ish this morning his Recovery truck, parked on the pavement outside our house, was beeping its reversing signal for ages, then the engine started running like it was missing a piston. 5 hours later and it's still running as he fiddles around in the engine bay.

Getting to the point of having to record every programme I want to watch. I'm getting really wound up with constants adverts and trailers for upcoming programmes. And the worst thing; being treated like a fool......Start of the programme we have five minutes telling us what will be on the programme,  then it tells you what is on after the break.....when it comes back on, it tells you what happened before the bloody break!

Woke up lots with hail clattering the windows. Then at 6 with the car next door failing to start.
But. I won the battle of the dog wearing her coat. It was pathetic. She tried rolling on the grass to get it off but I had put her harness on top of it  8). I think it's the velcro fastening that she hates. But she is dry  :laugh:

Nipped to bed for an hour. It lasted 10 minutes.  Royal mail came with some new slings for Chris. Went back up and the window man came. He warned me about some characters on the estate selling pillows. He went and then the dog erupted. An idiot ringing the bell constantly with pillows in his hand. Told him to go away and shut the gate. He kept looking back as he went so I let her out to make sure he knew we had a dog. 10 minutes later there was a woman at the door selling pillows. Was just telling her to go away when the young bloke across the road told them to f*** off away,  next door let his Alsatian in the garden and shouted for them to p*** off.
And there was me being polite  :laugh:

It has been announced that the recycling/tip centre that serves the north and centre of the city is to close on March 1st.

Land next to it had tall flats built next to it in about 2010, and the moaning started immediately by the residents about the "noise, smell and traffic".

In 2014 the council said it would close "as soon as another site is up and running".

But now they say that they have no money to do so, so residents will have to take their waste a lot further to the 2 remaining sites. Or pay a fee to have it collected by the council. A fee that doubled 2 years ago, and doubled last year.

1 - 2 items​    ​£12.50
​3 - 4 items    ​£25.00
​5 - 6 items    ​£37.50

But what will they take away? The list is barmy:

Arm chair
Doors with glass panels
Double Garage doors

Garage doors

 Non-electrical exercise equipment
Bath ( Fibreglass)
Bathroom cabinet (MDF/Mixed Materials)
Bed Bases (Divan/MDF/Mixed Materials)
Bedding- duvet & 2 pillows
Bedside Cabinet (mdf/mixed materials)
Blinds
Bookcase MDF/Mixed Materials/Glass
Bookcase with shelves MDF/Mixed Mat /Glass
Cabinet or bureau MDF/Mixed Materials
Carpet (1 bag/ roll = 1 slot)
Chest of drawers (MDF/Mixed Materials)

The trouble is that they can call you back to reassess at any time in that 4 years, so you could have it stopped (e.g. if you don't return the forms in time). A few people on a forum have reported having the payments stop, and when they enquired why, were told that they had not received the assessments forms in time. But the claimants had not received any forms to fill in! So now they send out reminders to say they have not yet received the forms. But even they get lost....

The DVLA car tax reduction only works within that tax year, so I have to get the forms off to them before March 1st....

Both lost their drinks licences after stings by the council (serving to kids and drunks).

I asked a Polish neighbour where I can get it, and he said there is only one place now, and the Polish are shunning it due to profiteering.

Thanks for contacting me about the price of the cigarettes which you used to purchase from our store.
 
I’m so sorry to hear the price of cigarettes you purchase has gone up recently.  I can fully appreciate why you would be disappointed and concerned by this. As I am sure you are aware we are a low cost retailer that strives to keep our prices down for the customer every day. I'm sorry to hear that you have found the item cheaper at another retailer.
 
I can also advise you that we have many grocery products on Roll Back or Price Lock every day as we are constantly striving to keep our prices as low as possible for as long as possible for our customers. Roll Back is when we roll back our prices and keep them there for as long as possible to give you the best value for money, Price Lock is a commitment for a minimum or 12 weeks at the same price.
 
I can also advise you that unfortunately, we do not price match on any individual items. Although on this occasion we haven’t been able to keep the price as low as we’d like, we’re so confident in our prices that if we're not 10% cheaper on your comparable grocery shopping, we’ll give you the difference back and 10% in the form of a voucher that you can print off and use towards the cost of your shopping on your next visit to store.

I have just contacted DVLA:

"My son lost his Free Car Tax entitlement via DLA on 20th Feb 2017. I declared the car SORN until 1st March 2017, then paid full car tax (£150) for the coming year. Then I renewed it at £150 for 1st March 2018. I was then told he was entitled to a 50% reduction for both years as he was awarded PIP Mobility from 22 February 2017.  So I sent off the applications with the required paperwork for each year, together with 2 cheques for £75. Today I have received the paperwork back, but it included my cheque for £75 for the period 1st March 2017 to the end of February 2018, and no refund cheques. The end of the envelope was fully open. By my calculation, you should have accepted both cheques and sent me a refund of £300."

Why do they have to make it all so bloody complicated?  :grumpy:

Shopping came without cigarettes again. Seems there is no appropriate substitute for cigarettes  ???. So I said to the delivery man that this is happening all the time lately. What's going on?
He then told me that cigarettes are very expensive and bad for your health.
Does he really think I don't know that  ::). I almost made him come in and explain  to Chris why he can't have a smoke  ::)

The Hornbeams in our street are full of their catkin things, and the pollen is everywhere.

As I go on the fields I a morning, there are about 5 pussy willow trees just turning yellow so that may be it. Plus a honeysuckle is just outside Chris's bedroom. It's always been there but was on the greenhouse .  No greenhouse now so it's going rampant over a fence.

Just settling down to a a bit of tv with Chris when phone went. Council man to complete building certificate and check we are happy.
The dog was horrendous.  She is very docile normally and let's people in and just mothers to be stroked. But she is racist.  The bloke was terrified of her so I had to lock her in the living room with Chris.  Half an hour later and he was taking pics of the work done......Chris opened the door for her  :o. I caught her and flung her back in the room...Man ran into bathroom.....Chris opened the door for the dog again  ::)
How do you think I'm feeling  ::)

The lad has had dental pain for over a year. Our (NHS) dentist just said it was due to exposed roots where he brushed too hard. He has been using all the brands of sensitive teeth repair toothpastes to zero effect, and has been using paracetomol and novocaine almost every day.

Today he called for an emergency appointment and was seen by both the hygienist and the (private) boss dentist. Both removed deep tracts of tartar on his back teeth that both said had built up over at LEAST a year. Our (NHS) dentist is going to get a talking-to... he's only a year out of training... and it's not the first case of poor care he has been found to be giving.  :-\

MOT fail:

Both front tyres are over 10 years old, so considered dangerous. Being replaced by the same company I always use, and at a discount rate 'cos I have a loyalty card.

All the rubber brake pipes are over 10 years old, so considered dangerous. Being replaced by their brakes expert with no need to pay Skoda parts prices.

Brake fluid contaminated despite it being changed last year. The inspector said that was very doubtful, so if I take the receipt for that work to him this week, he'll get me a full refund from In-n-out.

Their Skoda mechanic asked if he can take photos for his collection. He would not believe she's only done 45K since 1995.

I emailed the council to come and collect old electronic kit.

They emailed back asking for a full list. So I opened the black bags they were in beside the house and made the list, then closed the bags again. I emailied it and got a reply that they will collect it all next Tuesday.

3 DVD recorders
2 DVD players
1 XBOX
1 Playstation
1 DVD player
3 Digital decoders
2 VCRs
24" CRT monitor

I went out to put something in the bin this morning and it was all gone apart from the CRT monitor!

Had kids from a garden a few doors down collecting their football twice now within half an hour. Turns out they are new round here and go to the school o worked in and the oldest remembered me. Ah ha! So that's why the ball is coming over  ::)
Told them that next time it happens, the dog gets to keep the ball  :)

Sat here covered in nettle rash. Bloody fair weather dog walkers  :-X A woman with two dogs and a toddler was coming on the fields. The usual practice is the one coming on goes the long way round. But she wouldn't know that so I took a short cut....through nettles and brambles  ::) my dog jumped over a log that I couldn't see and I fell splat on the ground in the nettles with her still pulling me. Of course I was bare armed too.

I now look like a grey Lemmy.

New Remington hair trimmer ordered from ebay as Philips wanted £4 more just for that spare part!

Our dental practice was sold to the junior partner last month. He made the whole team redundant, had the place redecorated, and has taken on one of the old dental nurses as admin, and a colleague from years ago as the NHS dentist.

That makes about 8 dentists we've had in that building over the years.  :-\

An elderly neighbour bought a garden strimmer from a magazine advert. £60, post free.

It arrived today with no battery or charger, so I checked online (where it is £86 inc postage) and found the charger is £36 (inc P+P) or £56 (inc P+P).

The battery is £96 (inc P+P) !!!!!!!

The magazine advert has a tiny bit of writing stating "no battery or charger", so small I had to use a magnifying glass!

Bl**dy rip-off merchants!!  :grumpy:

I completed a council questionnaire last week. Part of it was about where the council should concentrate their cleaning efforts. I pointed out that we hadn't had the local streets cleaned since last year. Leaf debris from the autumn were still in clumps all over the place.

I had a phonecall from one of our councilors this morning. Our area had been taken off the cleaning roster because of the nose-to-tail student parking. It's back on now, and cleaning started at 8am.  :)

A mate spent the weekend in Swansea for the Air Show. First he dropped his 2 sons and their 2 mates beside a field with camping gear for the night.

This morning he got a frantic call to come and collect them, earlier than they had planned. They had set up camp, wandered off for a pint in a remote pub, but when they got back all their gear had been stolen. A night on hay bales in the field with no mobile coverage.

He arrived to collect them but they weren't there. So he drove half a mile and found them beside the road.

Driving back, one of the friends shouted "STOP!!"

He had seen their tent... in the field where they had erected it.

:rofl2: :rofl2: :rofl2: :rofl2: :rofl2:

They packed it all up and went to Swansea for day 2 of the Air Show.

And they got soaked..... a mile from the car with little cover....

Windows wide open. ..curtains shut to block the sun but then it's stifling so now got all bedrooms and bathroom doors wedged open to try to get some air in with all but I think it is hot air coming in.

Bad night sleep and now the dog is off colour.  I've wiped her down and got a fan on her but she keeps sloping off into Chris's bathroom and lying Dow.  Its obviously the coolest place but she is shutting herself away.

Yep. Worried about my dog. Looks like a bite or a sting on her throat and she has flecked it and made a mess. MY old boy staffie ended up a mess at the vets with multiple stings (daft sod rolling in herb patch) . He was given antihistamines .
Anyhow, gave our Millie a piece of benadryl laced cheese and gave her a cool shower. She is picking up a bit now the sun has finally gone in. If she opens the skin again tomorrow, she will have to have a lampshade on.

This is not allowed (they turned my request down flat, quoting a whole raft of regs for street trees).

Wierd you just said that Tāf.  I was chatting to the woman across the rd who has a golden labrador with skin allergies. Her remedy was light cotton bandage with antiseptic spray on it and.....a thick sock on her right back paw.
Millie is currently hiding under Chris's bed because I have put a cotton bandage on her.

Woken at silly o'clock by a burglar alarm sounding. I could not tell where it was coming from. It finally stopped about 10am.

:grumpy:

Then I got a phonecall from "Sky MC" (NC ???) to say that my insurance cover for the equipment was out of date and I should pay to have it reinstated. All he wanted was my Sky ID and my credit card number.....

We don't have any Sky equipment.

Call from the council. Our shed door cannot be repaired/replaced on schedule due to a lack of manpower.

First reported in April.

Inspected on 15th May.

Repair on 27th June postponed.

Repair now set for 2nd September.

I did, until I got back to Cardiff. The buses are all in turmoil, with our bus leaving from somewhere it has not been in 15 years. So I trekked around and around looking for the "notices" that said where to go. No notices anywhere, but a bus driver gave me the info I needed.

:grumpy:

On the plus side, a woman plied me with fudge of all kinds at the food fair, I got free Carolina Reaper chillies (the hottest in the world), free jerky for the lad, and another woman kept passing me grapes and strawberries that no passing kid wanted.

Not happy at losing 10 channels on Virgin.

They MIGHT come back, but the bickering is extensive with the American owners of Virgin.

Virgin are spinning it as an opportunity to reduce cost for its subscribers, but will no doubt hike their prices again after adding some rubbish channels no-one wants.

I feel groggy after yet another hot night.

Barring an eleventh-hour deal, Virgin Media said it would replace the UKTV portfolio with a range of channels offering shows including Suits, Designated Survivor, Britain’s Next Top Model, Deadliest Catch and sports programming.

The missus and I were on the patio just after midnight and we could see flashes of light from a torch in the gardens to the back of us. The only sound was of someone moving around from garden to garden.

I went down to the back wall and a head popped up wearing an LED headlight. He jumped when the light hit me.

It was a policeman looking for the second of a pair of burglars, the first was in custody after being caught by a neighbour in his kitchen.  :o :o :o

He told me to go in and lock all windows and exterior doors.

I found out this morning that the second bloke was caught hiding under a car a few doors down from us. A well known burglar.

Sorted that. Took the dog on the fields and a loose staff was circling my dog who was on lead . The owner turned up saying that his dog is friendly. Told him my dog is bloody terrified so put yours on a lead! Guess what? His dog had no collar or harness.

stressed to the point of feeling sick

i'll be lucky to make 50% profit this year. ( and that works out as less than minimum wage for the hours i do. one week this school holidays, as long as i don't spend anything more than money on food, i'll be on £6 an hour for 51 hours......, if i need to buy any resources or take them anywhere it'll be far less.)

parents get charged higher and higher fees as the costs are being pushed higher and higher by increasing fees that we have to pay. I've not raised my fees in 3 years.  I'm currently the lowest in the area, but i can't keep doing this forever!

Supposedly all this money in childcare?
it ain't in my pocket!

Post by: Tāf on July 28, 2018, 13:56:38 PM
it ain't in my pocket!

It's in the pockets of the owners of the facilities, ditto OAP homes. A lot in Wales are owned by multinational companies, especially european and chinese, demanding high returns, so wages and facilities are low. The council OAP centre near us was bought, emptied, demolished, and is now being rebuilt with 3 times the number of beds. No access for council cases, only private when it reopens.

Yeah bags are fine. It was vacuuming too well and crushing the food . Anyhow I've sorted it. I am obviously going daft cos to just seal without vacuum, you press the seal button before putting the bag in.....a thing I have done hundreds of times. I literally forgot doh!

Sorted Pol's prescription. Tesco can now source her diabetic monitors after a few MPs got involved in the case around the UK.

Then a f***ing p**i taxi driver hit an old lady on a zebra crossing, just enough to spin her around. He didn't stop at first, but a car coming the other way saw what he did and so blocked the road. I formed part of a crowd that kept him in his car until the police and ambulance arrived.

She's OK but they took her in for a checkup and observation. He was not happy with it all, and was cuffed after swinging at a policeman almost twice his height.

I mentioned the taxi vs, old lady incident to Pol, and she told me that it seemed odd that such things always happen around me.

In a fairly affluent area, we pulled up behind a bus at a bus stop earlier. The lad piped-up "That kid is naked!"

I looked over and saw a group of men and women only 30ft away helping a blond kid, around 10 years old, to sit down on the floor as they tried to cover him up. Blank expression, no red eyes, no blushing, but not wanting to be covered.

Then the police arrived, the bus pulled away, and off we went home.

I now can't find it, so it possibly came out when I removed my car keys at some point.

I  wish  the kids round here would go back to school.  Just had to negotiate two gaggle of them playing in the middle of the roads.
Yep, my dog is a friendly labrador but she is very wary of children running towards her. They come running up to her shouting Can I stroke your dog!
I always say no , that she is scared. Why can't parents teach them not to approach a strange dog?
My parents did and I taught my kids that too.

The problem family has a very nippy, yappy, small dog that has no fear of running around in the middle of the road every single time it gets out. Many close calls with cars, and a few kids have run home crying after being nipped on the fingers.

I slept fairly well for once, and feel more refreshed than I have for days.

They know no fear round here. My dog is with me on a lead and on the pavement.  They are playing in the road. Cars are having to wait for them to move .
What gets me is there is an area of fields, with swings and play area five minutes from here. But the kids don't use it . I think their parents want then in screaming distance. Also think the kids themselves are fed up now after four weeks.

All the years I have been treating my toenails for a fungal infection, and the new GP says it might be psoriasis.

So I have to send nail clippings off for microscopic inspection.

If the results can be seen I will get the results in a week, if not the clippings will be cultured, and I get the results in 6 to 8 weeks.

If the results show fungus, I must have a Liver Function Test that takes a week before starting antifungal tablets. A whole year's worth, with LFTs every 3 months.

If it's psoriasis, other treatment will start, possibly with toenails surgically removed.  :o

And meanwhile he spotted a "ruptured, traumatised mole" so I have to apply steroid cream for 2 weeks (at least) until it looks "normal" again.

The package arrived at 9:20, and a note on their handheld thing said I called yesterday at 5:30pm to postpone delivery until today. I wrote on it that no such call was made. 10 minutes later one of their agents phoned me to state that they HAD received a phonecall from me, and they would not accept such an allegation. APC you are w@nkers.

I opened the intact package and found the first 6 pieces had broken corners and the missing bits are not in the box.

I'm going to take photos and post them to the ebayer via the site.

I let a guy go ahead of me is the queue in Morrisons, as he only had a couple of items. He thanked me, then pointed at my bumbag, and said with a big smile. "There's not so many of us about these days".

It was then that I recognised him as an actor in Casualty who wears a bumbag at work.

We gave each other a big smile, and that was that....

President Macron has dropped the 447euro hunting licence to 200 euros, and allowed them to hunt anywhere in the country, thus removing local 150 euro "departmental" fees.

There are an estimated 1.2million hunters in France and some 37,000 new licenses are obtained each year.

And he backs hunting stag and deer with hounds, with 390 registered hunts and 10,000 members.

The government already launched a consultation process on the setting of quotas for certain species of birds such as skylarks and blackbirds for the 2018 to 2019 season.

A £225 brand new, unused, hard drive has been trashed by Pol trying to force a data cable in the wrong side up. 2 pins missing all the others bent to buggery.

After a flurry of emails, Western Digital have decided to replace the hard drive for a new one, as their techy department want to find out how it managed to mash up that badly. They say it should be impossible (but haven't met Pol).

They are even paying UPS transport both ways, door-to-door.  :)

2 days ago Pol was messing about, something to do with Oculus Rift (VR headset) which she wants to buy. She put a plug into the (very expensive) graphics card, and it would not come out. It turned out you have to squeeze the plug to cause 2 locking things to disconnect. She was kakking herself for hours again...

I don't know who it is round here but they keep moving wheelie bins round? I think they move the bins to the back of the house....Then get their car on the drive...Then move the things back to the front of the car again.

A teenager ran past me as I left the GP surgery.

A couple of minutes later I heard a loud thump then a screech of brakes, but couldn't tell what direction.

A couple of hundred yards later I saw a crowd gathering, and heard an ambulance arriving (they lurk on the edge of the estate).

The same teenager was lying in the gutter in front of a tarted-up black BMW. The driver was got out and was staggering and swearing at the gathering crowd.

I rushed over to help but a lady I know is a nurse was already in charge. The victim was awake and moaning, but there was a lot of blood.

The ambulance arrived seconds before 2 police cars who sealed off the road.

As I walked away, the driver was having a good go at the police with the "It's 'cos I is black" routine....

I've just found out that our neighbour, 109 years old, passed away in her sleep.  :'(

3 months ago, and no-one outside her closest family was any the wiser until yesterday.

She was a game old lady, used to bring in her wheelie bins until a couple of years ago.

"O'KEEFE HONORA Nee Brian Died peacefully at Nazareth House, Cardiff on 20th July 2018, aged 109. Formerly of Western Drive, Cardiff, she was the beloved wife of the late John O'Keefe"

"We voted Remain otherwise we would miss our annual summer holiday in Benidorm. Also we have loads of Spanish Euros left".

"If you are from the U.S.A. stop calling yourself American, you should call yourself a United States of American".

"How do yu ficks a spul chuker?"

The old electric fryer basket was 225 cu". The new one is 175 cu" and says it can hold 1 kg of stuff. Judging by the size, it'll hold 500g of chips whilst the old one held 750g. And it's the biggest one I could find anywhere! Plus it says it need 2.5 litres of oil, that barely makes it to the minimum mark. It actually needs 3.5 litres to get to maximum.

The diabetic consultant told the missus to do 8 blood tests per day. So that's 224 test strips every 4 weeks. But the surgery called this morning and they cannot authorise that many, only 100 max per month.

The missus is livid, as the diabetic consultant refused her the wearable monitor that Pol has which would work out a lot cheaper for the NHS. And a lot less hassle for her.

My mother started an endowment policy for me many years ago. Worth bugger all, but the payments are about 5 years in credit.

I phoned them last year to change the address, but this year the statement went to Mum's old address yet again.

So I phoned them again, and they asked me to send them the details by email.

Today I got a secure email (I had to make an account to read it).

"Please contact us on 0345 xxxxxxxxx

Alternatively you can email a signed letter providing your name, address including any previous addresses, dob and your policy number which will enable us to action your request. Please include your email address on the letter if you would like to correspond via email in the future".

I already gave them all that on the phone and in the email!!!!  :grumpy:

Woken at 5:30 again, almost dropped off again but had the urge to get to the loo. After that I was wide awake. 7:30 binmen, 8:00 street sweeper, 8:25 robot phonecall to see a package was on its way, 8:50 package arrived.

Half an hour in Lidl with a 4 year old (?) girl in a pram screaming and then shouting "I'm not leaving until you get it for me! I deserve it! Mummy, you have to get it for me NOW!!!" over and over and over....

An old lady at a checkout had had enough. She bent down, smiled and asked, "What is it you want little girl? 'Cos if you don't stop screaming like that you little shit you're going to get a smacking..."

Absolute silence all around the shop.... I was half expecting rapturous applause....  ;D

I set an alarm for 5:25 and went outside when it woke me.

And I got the bugger! A Newport taxi sounding its horn at 5:30! Then 2 blokes came out of a recently sold house and rode off in it.

I took the number and called them, and the dispatcher said he will stop the driver doing it.

We shall see.  :grumpy:

I returned a Council questionnaire about our home and local area.

I laid into them about "routine repairs" taking 9 weeks to complete, when the limit is 4 weeks.. I have received an email apologising for the delays, and extra staff will be contracted to prevent such delays.

I also complained about the local street tree roots erupting the tarmac pavements, making tripping hazards as they exceed the 2cm limit. Plus roots cracked our garden wall requiring it to be demolished and replaced. I asked how long before the roots affected the actual house walls. Their response is that an expert will inspect around the area over the next week.

Then I explained that the pavements around here are NEVER swept clear of fallen leaves, exacerbating the tripping hazard as the tarmac eruptions are hidden. The comment was copied to one of our councillors, who drove around the area this morning and then called out a street cleaning team. The pavements will be cleared weekly until all fallen leaves are clear.

Is an election due?

Assessors now get full access to your past written responses (and assessment notes). For both ESA and PIP I understand, but they are keeping the full info close to their chests. Any inconsistencies will be highlighted and queried, in an effort to increase the number of cases refused.

It showed me it's teeth then toddled off up the garden path and away. The first one I have seen in about 40 years.

Too many nutters on the road today. In just a couple of miles:

2 kids on bikes came around a raised roundabout the wrong way. Heads down and pedaling like mad. I missed them by inches after an emergency stop.

A bloke parked the wrong way on the other side of the road pulled out in front of me, missing my car by a gnat's whisker. He didn't pause or stop.

A car reversed out of a driveway at speed yards in front of me, stopped, then blocked the road whilst visibly panicking for a full minute.

A car came around a corner on the wrong side of the road, oversteered and almost got it up on 2 wheels less than 20 yards in front of my then stationary car.

Another car came flying into a "underground" Lidl car park, completely cutting the corner and just missing my car as I dawdled up to the exit.

An old woman suddenly walked into the road yards in front of me, with not a single glance for traffic. She didn't like the sound of my car braking hard.

2 teenagers stepped backwards from a crowd of their mates into the road. Laughing turned to looks of panic as I swerved to miss them.

I feel fine. Not even in the mood for a nap.

Pol's postponed Psych appointment was cancelled at the very last minute this morning. That's months she has waited whilst off meds. Next appointment in mid January. No emergency spots available. :grumpy:

It may well count against her PIP application too, as it's been over 6 months since she saw the psychiatrist.

Warming up after the hospital trip. Even the foyer and primary corridor were freezing cold!

Bloody asthma.  The house is warm and I just let the dog out and she was barking so went out to see and coughed, wheeze and whistled none stop.
Must remember my scarf in future.

Relieved. Finally wrapped all the Christmas presents. Only one more to buy and I'm done.

Had a nap with the cats during the worst of the storm, it was beating against the window when I dropped off.
