We took Ellie to George VI park, another lovely morning.

When we arrived home, Bob from next door was just unpacking their car. They had been on holiday. Sadly he said it was not good and all the hotel said it was because there now is a lack of staff!! That’s a shame for Louise and Bob.

I then went round to the cemetery to take some flowers and I wiped the stone as grass cuttings had stuck to it. I hadn’t realised until I wiped the side, there was a kitten hiding behind it! He thought it was a real game, chasing my hand.

Thought for the Day – “Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness but because you deserve peace.”

I had my dental appointment for two extractions at my dentist, as instructed by Maxillofacial. I had the first appointment at 8.30 which was good as I was first in, no waiting about. Avraj was very good and even used the stuff to numb my gums before he injected . Now I won’t be thinking about any dentals again until I have all the maxillofacial appointments in November. Pain killers for the rest of the day.

Milly and Sol came round in the afternoon. They have moved “up North”, near Clitheroe and they are loving their new jobs. They are back down for a couple of days and so really nice that they spent time with us. Sol has one of Grandad’s marrows to take over to Lou!

We walked Ellie across the fields, to ensure she didn’t get any treats as her tummy was a little unsettled and she hadn’t eaten her breakfast.

I met the Hatters for lunch. This time we went to the Dog and Duck at Plucks Gutter and had a nice meal.

And one of Queenie and I that a hatter just sent me.

Mal walked Ellie and I went off for my day in Pilgrim’s Hospice shop to volunteer. It was just Claire and I and we had so many donations, so we kept very busy.

It is interesting the entrance to the shop, obviously Freeman Hardy & Willis in a time gone by.

Sunday 10th October 2021

As I now have some fuel, we took Ellie to King George VI park. It was foggy when we left home but the sun soon came out.

We didn’t stay up to watch the Gypsy Kings fight but instead we downloaded and watched it after lunch. I haven’t seen a fight like that since the 60’s/early 70s. Now that’s what I call boxing!

In the evening we watched the last episode of Vigil. A very disappointing ending!

Saturday 9th October 2021

We walked Ellie and an elderly lady was in the cemetery and her mobility scooter had broken down. I carried on the walk with Ellie while Mal tried to get it going and then resorted to pushing it for her!

Back home and we set to cooking a Sunday roast on Saturday, for Lou and the kids coming round. I made the lemon cheesecake last night. We have loads of apples from the allotment, so I made an apple crumble as well. Mal then decided that he would cook the roast for a change, which he did. We had turkey from the butchers, so tasty.

What a nice surprise when they arrived as Rhys was with them, he was having today off. This time we had Oscar missing as he had a “Date”, bless him. The kids are growing up too quickly!

At least I got to see Rhys twice in a week!

Friday 8th October 2021

I had my hair cut at Headturners, a new to me place. I didn’t have much cut off as obviously I don’t know how good the stylist is and I can never tell until I have washed it myself!

I then went to Westwood to collect a birthday present. Four garages had queues but when I went into Tesco, there was no queue and they had petrol, so I managed to top up.

In the afternoon I drove Mal to the allotment as he had a lot of wood and a small greenhouse to take, so I dropped him off with everything.
