First Christmas card arrived today with an invitation for sherry and mince pies.
They want to sell me sheltered retirement living😵‍💫. Must be getting old😢😢

No! Your not getting old! There are so many retirement villages popping up they're running short of pensioners and need to make you think your old to fool you into thinking you might need such a property:love:

It’s some years now that a young lady offered me her seat on the underground. Today I took the pooch to the groomers and the young assistant brought her out to the car and lifted her up and into the back. I could get used to this level of service. 😄

Went to Bargain Madness today and brought some bits and a young man came up to me and offered his services of putting my wheelchair into the boot

We seem to get offers for Funeral Plans. I assume this means they think we are about shuffle off this mortal coil,

I went to Bristol with my granddaughter last Tuesday to buy our trees. She will be putting hers up today, ours waits until much nearer to Christmas.
Last night after having a Domino’s bash for the family and significant others, granddaughter went home and decorated her tree. She will do ours nearer to Christmas. A job she’s been doing for at least the last 12 years.

But I bet you will be putting it up and taking it down.
All that scaffolding and HSE prep

We've decided that when the tree goes up, instead of the usual decorations we're going to hang Valantine Hearts and Easter Eggs on it which should be available in the shops any day now.
