Brunettes Have More Fun! 
Wow! What a busy weekend! And such amazing weather. Yes, just like you lot down under we had fabulous blue skies and sunshine for both days. Unlike down under our maximum temp was about 5 degrees I think, but who’s complaining! My weekend got off to a great start with a quick trip to a large hardware store to buy some flooring (we are doing a side entrance into the house – jonathan calls it the shoe and coat room but it will actually be the dog entrance when s/he arrives!) Anyway, whilst unloading the very heavy materials into my car, a rather tall handsome young man was passing and asked if he could help me. As you know, my pre-surgery, Body Pumped self would have said ‘Bugger off mate, I can lift these planks with my little finger’. However, my post surgery, chemo-weakened body decided against this. With a subtle flick of my long auburn locks (subtle because I was afraid my wig might fall off), I batted my rapidly disappearing lashes and said ‘That would be so kind of you….’ Mr Tall and Gorgeous started chatting and I am sure he was about to offer to come and actually lay the flooring (I said flooring Jane…) when Tess piped up from the back of the car, ‘Mum, Dad’s on the phone – he said can you get a paintbrush?’ Timing Tess. So Mr Tall and Gorgeous retreated rather forlornly – well, he may have just been keen to get to Tescos….

I went for a long walk in the woods in the afternoon as it was such a lovely day then last night a few of us got together at Helen’s for what was supposed to be a quiet drink or two. Jane came along with her karaoke machine, however, so quiet we were not! I really can’t say what happened but Jane has more reason than me to be worried about ‘YouTube’! Almost all of us proved to be potential candidates for the next series of Pop Idol, such talent in one room, and it proved to be a highly amusing evening (except for one incident which involved Jane wrestling me for the microphone with such desperation that she nearly pulled my wig off! God, some people will do ANYTHING for their 5 minutes of fame!)

Today we had friends for lunch and I did the full Sunday roast with (are you ready for this Mum?) a genuine, homemade Pav! What a ripper! Then I decided I had to mow the lawn as the sun was still shining. So as I am a bit knackered now I better go to bed! Still three more priceless days of wellbeing before the dreaded bed and bucket confinement….I will certainly be making the most of EVERY minute. Must tell you tomorrow about the bonus part to my body that will also require surgery this year…think I better move closer to the hospital; it would save so much time….Deb x
