    Thank you. I'm just picturing Daisy giving you that look from under the tree. ^. .^
    I hope by now you are safe and snug back home, on the sofa with Bobs and Daisy, relieved and resting. :)

    Thank you for being so kind. Just back, cup of tea to hand.under a rug on the sofa with Daisy spread out like another rug on top. Gerald is a prince among injectors, not to mention his Geraldines. He went to so much trouble with extra anaesthetic, reassurance, from the ladies, took his time, and finished with antibiotic drops which I havent had before because he said “you dont want any complications Christmas week”. I hope the three of them enjoy the box of choccie biscuits I left.

    What is Dennis getting for Christmas...I’ll keep it a secret, honest. I think he could rock a Christmas jumper. Did you ever find the Barbour coat? Its that sort of weather atm. Cats dont like to dress up but do like to get punch drink on catnip toys.

    Would you believe I planned to play my guitar last night after I decorated the tree, and then just forgot?
    ... I can hardly believe it myself. I did print out 3 songs, in case we do decide to jam next week. Three favorites, "Silver Bells," "Infant Holy, Infant Lowly," and "Jesus Christ the Apple Tree."
    A few nights ago I was down in the chapel here playing the piano and was pleasantly surprised at being joined by a neighbor whose name I don't know but who knows the words to "Silver Bells" and came in singing. :)

    I was looking for drawstring bags this year and couldn't find any. I think that right after New Year's I will go online and look for some to order in the after-Christmas sales, for next year.

    Great news you got the Gerald Crew for your eye injections PM...they will love the biscuits you left they will always hear about the bad things that happen but often are not recognised for the good work they do...that will be appreciated by the whole team...Charlie & Lola brought the staff at Wood Green some chocolates a large selection of biscuits & their foster mum got some hand cream...poor woman had such a hard job to do we felt she needed some recognition...that was a lovely thing to do...pleased you're home & resting.

    We had a lovely wooden bird feeder which Archie decided would be great fun to knock over so he could eat all the bird seed. Wherever we put the bird seed Archie would find it and eat it.

    Great news that Gerald did the injections. He definitely is a Prince among injectors and leaving them a box of chocolate was a lovely thoughtful thing to do.

    @DJC3 @SaskiaKC @HarryBeau @Krystyna23040 @gennepher and anyone else I’ve overlooked thank you ALL for your good wishes and support today. I do dread these injections whilst being grateful for them. This thread at its most supportive!

    Just woken up from a little nap as has my furry companion.
    Anyone heard if @trick60 has been let loose for Christmas yet?

    Oh yes, I'm as loose as a moose aboot this hoose.
    Glad your eye injection went well PM.
    We had a great game of hide and seek at work today, 18 hairy sparkies hiding around the job phoning each other to report where the foreman was, he gave up at 11.30 and went home, we followed at 11.35, not a stroke done all day by anyone. Well he can't sack us all can he. Solidarnos brothers.
    Now there was a sparky.
