Daisy and The Chalet Woman (Part One)

I am really struggling with this one. I've got two thirds of the way through and I now have about three endings, all entirely different, and I can't decide. I don't even know what genre to put it in. Depends on the ending...

At last - something sensible

Sorry, I've got something in my eye.  Absolutely beautiful.  Captures the sadness of the moment and a hope for the future.  I do hope your friend will be well.

Posted on Sun, 22 Mar 2020

Thank goodness for these stories of yours.  I haven't got the foggiest idea what's going on most of the time, I only know I end up a cackling heap after I've read them, and I'm loving the musical links.  I 'm not quite sure why 'Even Myrna Loy...

Thank you!  My mog is a very cuddlesome creature, which is quite handy for social distancing, as I am usually covered with cat hair and no-one wants to get near me anyway.

Thanks again for reading!

Oh no!  I'm glad you designated this 'surreal' - you had me really worried there.  

I can't believe it's only a couple of months since my son and daughter and I were in the West End, seeing a show, spending time in cafes and restaurants,...

Changing life for all of us, Grace.  You're right, it's important we keep in touch with people who are 'self-isolating' and make sure they're OK.  Hope you manage to get what you need and stay safe.

I confess to having bought an extra bag of cat litter, just in case.  Most things I can do without but, should I get stuck indoors, I don't fancy being cooped up with a fussy moggie and no cat litter!

Nice to see Josiah and Archibald again!  And nice to be able to get a bit of a laugh out of the present situation.
