Hi Everyone

I've sent Jen an ecard telling her that we're all thinking about her and her family.

It's a card with a big ginger cat on that I thought she would like - I've tried posting it on here but no luck, I'm afraid.

I've put all our names on the card, sending our best wishes.

I hope you all have a good weekend and thank you again for all your kind support.

Ellie

good news i finished another hat while watching Iron Man at cinema
havnet take a picture yet
bad news is a silly old man reversed ino the passenger side of my car as i was driving, my son was in the passenger seat . my son is fine just a bit shook up and very angry.
happened 2 hrs a go
he is beating up his pillow to get rid of the anger. I dont know if any of you have had dealing with Aspergers but its how he deals with an overload of emotion rather then hitting someone.
so tomorrow morning will be spent on phone to innsuance company as it has damaged 2 doors.
got everything crossed my back holds up.
i could so cry right now . my daughters away hiking for the weekend too so just me and my son
dont seem fair somedays. thats 2 hits this yr both not my fault

so hope you all are having a better one then me
Nikki

Hi Nikki

I'm so sorry you're having such a rough time.

We have a family member with ADHD and I know that it can be such a tremendous strain.

I don't know why it is but I've known it happen time and time again that if you get bumped in a car, it seems to attract every eejit on the road.

Saturdays aren't the best for driving - our local Tesco's seems to turn into the dodgems at weekends. Can't go more than five yards without somebody reversing without looking.

Hope you have a much better day tomorrow - meantime, hope the next thread will cheer you up

All Best Wishes

Ellie

Hi

When Julie wrote earlier this week that she'd been attacked and chased by two amorous beavers on her 'driveway' - aka private airstrip - I thought we'd about reached the deepest depths of daftness.

But no, we hadn't. The postman arrived with a small package this morning and I found this inside it from Rita.

What's daft about that you might wonder - nothing until you clock what the lovely little flowers are resting on ..........

I happened to mention a few weeks ago that I was running low on coffee jar lids for my art and craft class and she said she'd save some for me.

Hmm - I laughed and said, 'Yeah, right - you're gonna be daft enough to spend postage on empty coffee jar lids, and post them all the way from London.'

Didn't think any more about it but these were what were lurking underneath the little flowers.

What can you do with mates like this ......?

I think Rita has now plumbed new depths of daftness - in fact, taken it to a level previously unknown.

It's only the 10th May but I think Rita has won the Daft Bat of the Year Award already.

Any advance on battling beavers? or sending coffee jar lids over 100 miles in the post?

I'm going back downstairs now and try to knit without laughing.

Thanks very much Rita for the flowers - I love them - (they're the little cute ones she put on the lovely little hat she knitted a few days ago).

Best Wishes

Ellie
