oh poor Margaret. my daughter had a similar problem in wales, took 3 weeks before it was sorted even though they were taking money. When they said the engineer had called and no one was in I took the phone and replied how odd as I was weeding in the front garden all day and no sign of any van etc came down the street. I would also be in the garden the following day and expected a visit or I would go to the local radio/tv station. they turned up and one of the chaps said the engineer assigned to us often went fishing but the bosses didn't know. They do now.
Pass on my best wishes to her too.

Back home and reasonably sorted after a lovely trip to my brother in Kingston, Ontario.
My other brother was here house sitting but had gone off to the mountains for a couple of nights for walking during what was the worst of the storms elsewhere. Fortunately it was not so bad here, BUT on another one of the many storms we have had lately our tv and oven were both zapped! I had never heard of an oven going before. It needed 3 new elements before it worked again, heaven knows about the tv. Fortunately we have a spare and don't watch it much anyway.
Further up the East coast was the disaster zone which was terrible. 13 people have died as a result of it and of course many are still out of their houses. Our English speaking group here have donated a significant amount from our charity fund and people have volunteered for the cleanup. Weather is still very dramatic with storms every other day. What have we done to our planet?
Now I must dust off the sewing machine and get going, firstly on blocks for FoQ 19.

Glad to hear you are safe and sound, Sylvia!
That’s a lot of people to have died in such a small area.

Hi Sylvia, I'm so glad to hear that you are safe. I did think about you at the time of the storm. I feel very sad that so many died and the devastation caused by the flooding.

love your monsters Rosemary, Im not a halloween person though. stems from chikdhood, and leaving a broom outside the door so the witches knew not to bother us. I did read on fb that someone put tabletsor drugs ofsomesort in a childs goodie bag, oh dear, i remember pins in apples one year in the 70's.
went to watch ..finally.... a concert that my daughter was lighting, in brighton, a band called superorganism. i didnt think i would enjoy it, but i was jiggling away, the performance outweighed the tunes, which didnt sound great on their own. she said it was rubbish lighting and a shh venue, but i thought it was good, I await the next performance invite,somewhen, when she thinks it will be better.
went to an " escape room" for sons birthday, we managed to work out all the clues, but I think you need to do a couple to get the hang of it. although we were stuffed to the gills with sweet waffles and ice cream... a definate sugar overload. he had mates over on the day ..lovely to hear laughter and chat, I hid in my room, and read a book. (it was his 21st)
mojo is still missing, its about somewhere...
dog has got her annual tummy problems, we really dont know what she is picked up from somewhere despite close supervision
