    • Meg, I will tell her. I'm sorry to hear about you and Mr. Meg.   Momac, the book we are group reading is Berlin Alexanderplatz.  Not the easiest book to read but you know that I enjoy struggling with my literature from time to time.   As for health problems, we have had our share but fortunately no ambulances - I well remember what that's like - or hospital stays so we are fine.
    • Good to hear from you Luna.  The group read sounds interesting.  I haven’t been reading much current literature, tried to read Louise Penny’’s latest book but got bogged down and haven’t managed to pick up the thread of it again.  Have lost my taste for police procedurals for the moment and into the romantic historical boks although some of those can be quite graphic.   Dave is very forgetful now and it’s kind of disturbing, however, not much can be done about it.This year has not been great for us and am sorry to hear that Meg and Mr. Meg have had a rough time as well, wishing you a better year coming up Meg.   Stay well Luna.
    • Do let Lizzy know that she is still remembered here.    I haven't been around much recently as life got a bit complicated - Mr meg had a heart attack about three weeks ago.  He was rushed into hospital and had a stent fitted to open up the blockage and now feels absolutely fine. Of course, he is not absolutely fine,  but it is taking all my energy to get him to stick to his rehabiltation programme, and to make the necessary adjustments to his diet (I hope Mr mac is now being more co-operative in that department, momac) It was all a bit of a shock as  Mr meg is quite skinny, with a BMI of 19.6, and is always on the go - we thought it was me who was a candidate for that particular health scare.    Between us, since June, we have clocked up three rides in emergency ambulances, six nights on very busy hospital,  wards three visits to the cardiac catheter lab, a cardio MRI, and two other non-emergency health problems. One way and another this half of the year has been hectic, but not much fun.
    • Hello Laugher and welcome to BGO.
    • Hello Momac, good to see you.  We have been having hard frost and bright sunshiny days.  My favourite weather in addition to the rain.  Tomorrow we'll be having rain. Getting the house into some sort of order - succeeded in cleaning out the soap tray in the washing machine which isn't as easy as it sounds. Just need to figure out how to clean the rubber ring around the front .  Steam cleaned the handrail and bannister last week, they were so dirty it was shocking.   I'm in a group read with an ex-member of BGO Lizzy Siddal for German lit month, it's very interesting.
