I don’t have much news this week what I had is over shadowed By all the excitement of the Baftas that you attended, it was lovely of you and Jamie to telephone on your way.i sat glued to the tele to see if you were within range of the cameras ,and even went over to Sky news and BBc news not a single glance, I did see George Clooney, he certainly has sex appeal as well as being very attractive,you never see him grumpy! I thought Jamie’s dress was very pretty and the red was a nice choice,it’s a pity the weather was so inclement must have been cold standing around.
if y ou remember last Sunday it snowed here quite hard and Stephanie and Kieth cleared the snow away for me, it’s been very cold this week to top the lot my heating bill arrived and although it didnt include the last ad coldest week I think I will have to take out a mortgage to pay it,I have had to have the heat on at night so that didnt help.Its amazing how times have changed, most houses before central heating only had one fire for the whole of the house and beds were piled high with blankets, I think people also dressed more sensible too or maybe could stand the cold better,it may have been all those stews ,puddings ,and porridge that helped.
Roger returned to. America on Monday,I still don’t know how he fared with the trains and the plane,Aunty Kit is in the nurseing home and has settled down ,the staff seem very nice, I haven’t been able to visit as im still in quarantine with the the dreaded bug I have just finished the anti biotics and have to have a culture done this week,.
I. Had a sort out this week of old photographs and found some memerabiliar of our trip on the Orient Express that was a great treat,we arrived in Paris in the afternoon and went for tea in a very smart cafe, and who should be sitting at one of the tables by Christene Onassis ,she had an enormous stand of patisseries bought to the table and within a short time ,half of them were gone,I noticed,no wonder ,at that time she was a pretty large girl,and it did surprise me that she was alone,all the fuss that some stars have these days with their retinue of bodyguards and then wonder why they are photographed so much The evening was the highlight though at Maxims,
I sent for a dress this week, it’s ages since I bought a dress, if you remember I always made my own clothes, however this was pure silk and fully lined very nicely made just needs a small lace panel made to fit the front , as I don’t have any boobees the front is a bit lower than is attractive, the colour in the wrap magazine said the colour was pink oyster but it’s more of a coffee colour or maybe it’s only my old fashioned colour pallet that make it look coffee.i would have said oysters were lighter! Anyway. I am very pleased with it and look forward to be well enough to wear it .thats the question my outings for the entire 2011 was two visits to the hospital one to the doctors for My flue jab , three visits to Ashley the dentist,and one trip to Lily’s birthday party when I was taken on to dads before coming home,a real gad about!Of course a hell a lot of the year was trying to get rid of something devastating ,like this bloody bug !!!!!!!!!
I’m having lamb chops this evening with mint my. Mouth is watering already, I can now have dairy product so there’s lots of swigging of milk going on, it’s amazing that when you are told you mustn’t eat or drink something how you crave for it, I slipped up a couple of times I had ordered pot of very thick double cream before the kick off and it winked at me from the fridge every time I opened the door, how my. Mouth watered at the sight and thought of it especially as Aunty Joan had made me some mince pies, as she couldn’t get them to me at Xmas, eventually I gave in of course and thought in for a penny in for a pound and put a big splash on a couple of the pies thinking it won’t hurt,that assumption was totally wrong as within half an hour it decided it wasn’t staying down,that will teach me to obey all medical instructions !
It’s started to rain, they did warn that the weather was going to be milder and wet, well for once they were right weren’t they,no news as you have seen, don’t forget it’s dad and my birthday on the seventeenth that’s Friday we would both apreciate a little of your attention for it,it would mean a lot to Dad to get a card from you ,I’m not asking for a hand made one or anything.
Take care look aft er yourself, when is the Kernel’ s launch ? When do we get the first of the press edition ?
Lots of love nana. Xxxxx I hope you are saving these e mails ! Still waiting for first reply!
