    Normally I would argue the point but as next Friday and Monday are going to no different from the previous Monday or the following Tuesday you may as well take the cash and treat them as normal days.

    Next Thursday I should be heading to Milan for a week - hey ho...

    Thanks to Amazon's returns policy, it will be going back - I will continue to use one of umpteen dining room chairs.
    Just hit ebay and purchase one of the many aeron chairs you can find on there. Mines going fine after 10+ years of usage

    One of the lovely pies the MIL bought over, in the sealed boot, for tea today.
    She bought us fruit ones before from the same place and they were very nice.

    We have to catch up on video conference to cheer her up on occasion, although retired she is a very busy woman on all sorts of committees and some such.

    The FIL is a different beast and has his own room where he spends the day, with jazz playing and viewing a number of different media on several silent screens at the same time.
    Most of the family, apart from me and the MILs brother, when back over from Jamaica, aren't really allowed in the room.

    I have to say I am missing those afternoon drinking sessions with him

    because the women wouldn't shut up and let us concentrate?

    Or I might decide to take a chance on those green lentils

    But my options are open for now as the first five or six hours is making the initial broth, which can then be taken in whichever direction available ingredients permit
    The soup has been observed, causing it to collapse from its superposition of states into chicken & barley soup

    It'll need another three hours or so, I reckon.
