My cold is still with me but I am taking Lemsips and this medicine seems to be working now!
Weather is improving it’s a lot milder now. I should have gone with our R & R to Cheltenham but will have to postpone it ‘till later on.

Working today cleaning upstairs toilet and bathroom. Weather has changed for the better now the sun has come out and the birds are singing nice! Just had my dinner, fish and mashed spuds it will keep me going until I go shopping tomorrow.

Finished the rest of the cleaning today, upstairs. Had to go and buy a new hose for the vacuum, it sure makes a difference to the suction and dirt collection. DK came down, I asked him about his leg as he had an operation on it, anyway it turned out ok in the end and he is ready to have the other done.

Racing today at Kempton, had a 10-1 win. It would be nice to have a winner every Saturday, then I suppose it would take away the sporting wager, wouldn’t it!
Weather today very fine with sunny spells and good temperature all round.

(Weather cloudy and sunny spells)
Went down the church yard placed some flowers on V’s grave. Came home then I have a phone call from our DK, he asked me if I wanted to go out to dinner, I was just getting my dinner ready, anyway we went out to Gloucester and who should we meet, R, M & R, it was a nice surprise. After we wnt back to R’s place for tea. Nice day out!

Weather dull and cold and dry. Went to the Focus Stores bought some things for the bedroom, floor varnish, paint cleaner, wood glue and wood filler. Will have to set about starting tomorrow. Dinner today was fish and chips and peas. Will settle down and watch Man U verses Inter Milan, no score at half time. (Finished 0-0)

Started to paint the front bedroom. I have done half and left the other half till tomorrow. I think I will have enough paint to finish the floor, if not I will have to get another tin of varnish.

I finished the first coat of varnish, will have to wait before I start the second. Cleaned the toilet and shower room then went up the town. Did a bit of shopping. Weather dull but dry.

Weather cloudy and dry, mild for February. “Cleaning day” today, brackets on. Will have to have a late dinner. Writing this in the front room as I look out of the window. I think it’s about to rain, just as well as I have done a bit of washing. It will go out to dry tomorrow. Hope the weather stays dry! DK came down.

Put a bet, I think I have something to come back. Weather not too bad, it’s dry anyway. Rang R, she is full of cold, she will have to take a course of Lemsips, that’s what I take and it works for me, in due course.
