The husband. He doesn't text much, gets irritated by the touch screen and big fingers. Anyway he texted me this morning asking a dumb question. I replied 'Oh ffs, no I haven't done it yet, it's 7am.' Got a text back saying 'What's Ffs?' I replied 'For ****s sake.' He messaged back 'For ****s sake what? What have I done? I only asked what it meant.'.

The Sony RX100v from Amazon just arrived, certainly a whole new learning experience from my DSLR.

I did. I waited until the shops were open as I find it hard to buy things from shops that are closed.

My oldest sister had her last breast cancer treatment in 2015. On Tuesday, she had a 'suspicious' mammogram result followed by biopsy. All 4 of us (my 3 sisters and I) have had a running private conversation going on FB as we've waited, waited, waited for the results. We've said things that should never be repeated, and most probably won't
All clear, f'n scar tissue. Not so much smiling as a bit shaky with relief! I wonder if 9am is too early for a wee brandy?

Never too early to celebrate news like that..

Congrats to your sister, such a relief.
