    :)<3Rebecca, one of life's greatest challenges is detaching from a loved one who is causing you emotional pain. I wish you the best <3

    Michele What is a bubba mug? I'd scrub it out with Bon Ami, if none available, try baking soda and white vinegar?

    Yes ... this!

    And bleach can work as well. We use bleach (a splash of bleach + hot water) in our bicycle waterbottles. Let it soak overnight, empty out half, give it a good shake, empty out out most, then dishwasher.

    Machka - So glad things are moving forward. I hope you will make some free time for yourself. <3

    My friend with the ligament has found out she has to stay in hospital for two weeks!!!! She's not allowed to put any weight on it. She has no one living with her at home. No downstairs toilet. Eeeeeekkk! I will go and visit her as soon as I can.

    This morning I woke up very early and went into the spare room to read a book about running. :D Decided reading about it wasn't cutting it, so at 6 a m I decided to go out for a run. Wonderful! Listening to my podcasts. "God Only Knows" and "Mozart's Requiem". The early light, the cool air. I only saw the milk man in his cart and one other elderly woman out walking, who said, "Best time of day for it". :) We currently have a heatwave, so the cool air is a treat.
    Came back at 7.15 to find DH picking blackcurrants and gooseberries in the front garden. He decided we have too many blackcurrants to freeze them all, because of the move, so we are going to make jam today or tomorrow with 3 lbs of them.
    Had breakfast. Then I rowed for half an hour and did my yoga/pilates/weights session. Will have to do the recumbent bike after lunch for bonus calories. I have a Scandi noir I want to catch up on.
    I also put some brown rice in the IP. Going to have the rice, garbanzos and chorizo for lunch with salad bits.

    Sending love to all daughters and sons and sisters and brothers. <3<3<3<3 May they all heal and prosper.

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxx
