    Morning yes we have had yet another sprinkling of snow overnight. It keeps trying to snow but lasts a couple of minutes then disappears. I'm hoping it doesnt stay around this time. Hubby off out food shopping in it later

    Stay warm folks

    oh wow that's brilliant. I dont know if we will be expected to go to Wolverhampton or Birmingham for ours as our GP surgery dont appear to be doing them.

    Sit on handsies until called (it will keep them warm at least)

    Morning I'm not worried when I get called. Plenty to go around and plenty of othe people need it before me.
    My eldest daughter has covid at the moment and is finding it hard looking after the wee one and we cant help because we cant afford to get covid with our underlying conditions.
    No extra snow here but its perishing cold.
    Family all good. My youngest daughter is pregnant, due end July so waiting on next scanin about 4 weeks time to see if they can deduce what she's having. Then we can start buying (if the shops ever open)
    I did wonder where Molly had got to. I knew she was making knitted scarves. I think we all need something to keep us occupied.

    Good luck for your next cataract op :watching:

    Morning folks

    Pretty quiet in Wolfie's world. Both my girls and their respective partners are over covid. We may be having the little girls tomorrow for a couple of hours, if they dont show any symptoms of the dreaded lurgy.

    Havent done much. Like most of us I've had the letter to say 'shield' until 31st March. Just waiting on the call to have the vaccine.
    Been reading and doing household chores but fast becoming a bit down and depressed. I'm going to phone my consultant and have a word to see if my medication can be tweaked to get me through the rest of the lockdown. I dont think I've done too bad considering it has been a year already.

    Have a good day everyone

    Been looking through the Forum for a couple of hours. Not been on here for ages. Maybe a year or more!

    Lazy day, got out of bed this morning nice and early to lay on my sofa to watch Judge Judy and then went out to get some double cream for my coffee and that is about all I've done.. Purchased a couple of Pork Pie hats off EBay last week and have been wandering around the flat wearing them doing that Robert De Niro "you looking at me" scene from Taxi Driver every time I walk past my mirror!

    Doesn't get much more exciting than that! It's been a full day indeed.....
