    Thank you.
    It's good and relaxing @Krystyna23040 when you can win games. It is almost like a meditation.
    My family were card players, so I got good. I don't like losing, even against myself. But I could never win against my grandfather. I am good at bluff with others, but not against my grandfather. I knew my body language didn't give me away. Then, about 30 years ago a guy explained to me it was my eye pupils that gave me away. I never knew.

    Now that MrSlim is mostly recovered I am becoming increasingly irritable.
    Am thinking that I stamped down hard on my stress levels and now having relaxed a bit it's all coming out. Finding suitable foods for both of us continues to be a challenge. With MrSlim today stating it is my weird diet causing the problem....yet it is his requirement for fresh bread has me off to the shops so frequently...
    Either way have once again failed at internet shopping. Will have to go to the store. Am so fed up of shopping, with little storage space and limited cooking facilities am shopping two time three times a week.
    Fresh bread for MrSlim, milk for tea and coffee, run out with monotonous regularity. As does cream for my coffee, really missing the one litre cartons I bought in France.
    Another thing, today noticed was looking for wild primrose, they are everywhere this time of year in Normandy, every roadside bank is covered with them. My mother asked if i regretted returning to England. With lockdown continuing and restrictions getting ever more draconian. Sometimes I do. Currently it's looking like end of May or early June before we can go home. I may have withered away from boredom and idleness by then.

    The original plan was quarantine in our motorhome for the required 10- 14 days. Then we had invitation to stay with friends for the rest of the three months. It's now been four months living in a motor home with brief break visiting son. Looking like two or more months before we can go home to Normandy. This is not what we were expecting.

    A lot longer than you intended @SlimLizzy
    Not what you wanted.
    I hope there is a way you can get home sooner than that.
    I cannot imagine living in a motor home during these very cold months either.
    Hugs for you both.

    Very clever of your Grandfather to suss that out. He obviously didn't like losing either.

    When we were much younger we regularly had friends round for a game of cards. I hate to lose also and would avoid the alcohol so that I could win. It gave me a huge advantage.

    We haven't played cards for years and years. A shame really because we did enjoy those evenings. I haven't drunk alcohol for years either because I became allergic to it. A shame because I did used to enjoy a glass of wine.

    Great that you have your vaccine booked for 2nd March.

    You must be absolutely exhausted after 3 weeks of those long Aussie hours.

    I don't think my grandfather ever lost a card game. Well, not that I knew of @Krystyna23040 He knew pretty much every card that was in your hand.i could guess a few that were in your hand, but I never got to be that good.

    I am out of practice playing with others now. But it is useful to know now that my pupils widen slightly to give me away when otherwise my body language is controlled. I have some darker glasses I wear if I need to...
