Hello caz. Sometimes I think your hubby has a crystal ball so he knows in advance what your plans for the day are and he can sabotage them! You haven't had much luck with your plans generally.
Sunderland and Newcastle were not as bad weather-wise as I expected although when we went for a walk along Roker seafront it was pretty windy. My uncle's funeral went very well, church full (he went there all his married life, was in the choir and was organist for a while too) and several clergy past and present. Very painful day though and afterwards I just wanted to get home so after socialising for a while I called a taxi to take me to Newcastle Central and got home about 8pm. Glad it is over.
Did you get your vanishing posts sorted out?
