I can relate to all of the above :-D :-D :-D

Yes, i can relate to it, too.

Nothing better than a 2 hour breakfast - that's a cup of tea, followed by
poached egg on toast, with another cup of tea, finished off with a mid-morning cup of coffee :-

...and I never used to have breakfast!

Oh - and the occasional one hour 'snooze' after lunch, for no particular reason - just bceause I can.

I think most of it is because we can Maggie.

Good to see you Allan. Are you OK? I don't think I have seen you on here for a while.

I love being able to read my iPad in bed before I finally have a shower and get dressed, then have a leisurely breakfast. It has been really annoying for the last few weeks when we have had so many workmen in the house and I have had to get up and forego my lie in

Thank you, AnninGlos. I'm fine; mostly been on the games board and also busy in the new (for us) house. I will be back on the General Chat Board soon .I'm not sure whether that's a threat or a promise :-D

Glad you are OK Allan. I am sure there is a lot to do when you move to a new for you house. provoking the 'I am never moving again' scenario. I tend to stay on this board. :-)
