Small disaster

Help!  The TV has lost it's signal which means I can't watch anything!  And I gather I am not alone.  Judging by the silence it is the whole floor if not beyond.  What am I going to do?  It really is the only thing keeping me sane when the visitors are gone and it's not yet bed time.  I hope they get it sorted quickly.  In the meantime I thought I'd do an early post.

And the visitors have gone.  I saw Dave and the girls this afternoon, with the girls briefly popping out to do a bit of shopping.  Thank goodness travel was better than yesterday.

I have very little else to report today.  My counts have dropped again but not into worrying territory yet.  I need my own body to get on with making those new cells reproduce themselves.  I still have a grumbling  temperature, although I don't feel like it, but it is enough to stop me from hoping too much for the evasive Christmas escape.  Let's see what tomorrow brings.

The St John's carols, lessons and mince pie evening is currently under way and hopefully going very well.  I'll sing a quick verse of "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing" in my head in support.

Now back to bashing the remote control in the hope that the high tech approach will sort things out.

God bless you all.


  1. Hi Cathy

    hope you get my messages - not too sure how this blog thing works! sory to hear the tv is off i hope they get it back on quick. i too have missed the carols at st johns tonight as went down with flu earlier in the week so will have to wait to next year. I do hope you get out for Christmas but if not i assume they will be able to cater for the family being with you. You are an absolute inspiration and i hope many people follow your blogs. take care jackie P x

  2. Hi Cathy
    Hope the TV is now up and running. Have you been watching the Apprentice? Haven't seen tonights as yet so don't know who has won. Didn't watch all the news in case they announced it!
    The Carol service went off well but numbers were sadly down due the roads being really bad tonight. I suppose about 100 there. The singing was good and Lesley was really pleased with the choir. The mulled wine vanished quickly . Less people than last year and we had bought more mulled wine! I think most folk had walked so they were up for more than 1 glass of wine! Anyway it was all used as were all the mince pies and loads of shortbread. Think some had come out without having their tea first! It was a lovely service. Don't know what the weather will bring tomorrow but hopefully no more snow. Don't think I need to use the car. it was a bit scary coming home tonight. the roads were all very greasy and on the inclines I was skidding about. Was an exciting trip for my passengers including John Castle. He had walked to church but asked for a lift back. Probably wished he had walked home as well!
    Keeping fingers crossed for the great escape this week. Love Joan
