Well you are really educating us now Rob - I never knew Green Mile was an SK book or that Shawshank was based on one of his either! Green Mile is the one with the black guy in prison who has special healing powers isn't it? I've just finished Wise Woman by P Gregory so I'm off to bed to start another one - doing a book swap with my daughter.
My dog is suffering at the moment due to all the fireworks that go off here around 5th November for Guy Fawkes Night - she's petrified poor thing. We are trying to be very positive and upbeat with her to give her good energy - it seems to be working quite well. You would be cured of your wariness by her Rob - she's a very special dog. She is very kind and gentle - once when my girls were messing around doing press-ups the dog thought that the eldest couldn't get up off the floor and she put her body underneath her and tried to lift her up. Another time when I was linking my hands for my youngest to stand on to reach something off the top of the cupboard Jazz put her head under my hands and tried to help lift her up She is very tuned in to how people are feeling and although she is a shy reserved little dog she always tries to help us. I think I told you before that we rescued her from a dogs' home to help my daughter walk after her acident - I think she was sent to us as a Guardian Angel because she has brought us all much closer together.
You are so lucky to have family around you - it sounds such fun. You too Robyn - I love the sound of your Christmas day. I really wish I had lots of family. I have a sister that I am not close to and I used to have a brother but he died a few years ago - he was only 42. Hubby is one of 6 but they are scattered around the globe - MSN is a wonderful thing though. One year we all gathered in Pakistan - it was brilliant! We have 2 kids each now so it would be fantastic if we could all get together again.
I'm going to try and get some rest now because I start my new role as assistant manager of the learning centre tomorrow and I've had a bad weekend as far as pain is concerened. Maybe my letter from the hospital will come tomorrow and all will be revealed :roll:
Night night friends
