I'm afraid I have been a right Grump for the last few weeks.I am still waiting for Insurance money to come to replace my washing machine ,big upright freezer and tumble drier after having lost them in flood.Money should have been here before Christmas but because of some 'glitch ' in the system no money was sent.I'm still waiting.Have spent a blooming fortune on Laundry Services over the last month plus begging a friend for use of his machine.
Hoping to be a happy gal again soon when I finally get my 3 new desperately needed items :-D :-D

I feel as though I have gone through today in the wrong gear, its taken me all my time do to do anything requiring any energy or effort. OH said he thinks " I am coming down with something" ...... I am thinking about that.

Mr Daff, the sound was not so good on that so have also listened to it by the Neath choir

and Rhydian

(Topped off with 'Calon Lan' :-) ) so am much calmer now :-)

'Myfanwy' is a beautiful song.

I think all the grey wet days we have had has not helped to keep any of us cheerful. However we booked a holiday today so I feel reasonably cheerful, although would feel a lot better if the flights were not such a rip off, extra for this that and the other really makes me cross. :-(

Ann, you're right about the grey days, I don't remember when there have been so many of them in a row!

I hope your holiday is soon so you can escape them :-)

The one booked today was June, but we have a week in Devon in February so more grey days probably .
