Last night

I was very tired last night after a lovely day.

At 9pm I gave in and went to bed.  Elly thought it was a little early for me to settle for the night as it would mean I would be up very early this morning.  She wheeled in Tobias to entertain me while I rested.

The lower part of my leg became uncomfortable due to the swelling and I thought if Elly puts some cream on it it might help.  I called out but she didn’t hear me.  Not wanting the effort of getting out of bed, I checked to see if she was on chat.

21:32 me: Are you on the phone?
Ellybabes: no
me: can you come in a min
21:33 Ellybabes: sure

She was in the kitchen at the other end of the house and the door was closed.  She came immediately and sorted out my leg and made me more comfortable.

Modern technology is wonderful!

Now I am off to think about breakfast.

I’ll see you at 5pm (my time), for more fun with the Consortium.

    After a spat with his wife, Spike Milligan once retreated upstairs to his study in a huff. Many hours later, there was a knock on the door. A gentleman from the Royal Mail held out a telegram for Mrs Milligan, who signed for it. The telegram read: VERY THIRSTY STOP MAY I HAVE A CUP OF TEA PLEASE

    I’ve messaged Hannah from the room below – modern technology does have it’s uses.

    Grannymar – I do hope your recovery continues and that you will be dancing around before long.

    I hadn’t forgotten you – just all taken up with babies and pigs at the moment.

    This morning my husband went out to work without saying goodbye. I texted him. I found out he was on the train. Technology is great. But the cheek of him all the same going out without telling me!!!

    Ranjan works from his bedroom and I from a corner of the dining area. There are eight steps going up to the first floor where his bed room is and just a small landing and a door which is usually kept open. The printer, scanner etc are downstairs near my work station. Ranjan keeps sending me messages with attachments to be printed, copied or sanned and occasionally comes on the chat too! Yes, technology has overtaken our life styles.

    Nick – Right now I would not manage on my own.

    Conor – Indeed. I hear you are on the move. Travel safely and enjoy the experience.

    Rowan – Trust Spike to do something like that! 😀

    Nelly – Babies and pigs are very time consuming! Congratulations and enjoy Grandmotherhood!

    Gaelikaa – I bet he won’t forget next time!

    I hope with all this chatting on line and texting we don’t forget how to speak!

    Ian – I love that cartoon. It made me smile!

    Grannymar, be careful with the 5 dates. I hope you don’t tell all with the next date! They may get jealous!

    I enjoyed the video very much!
