Ye gods, I’m tired … !

That’s the perils of manning the phone for ten hours.

*        That’s a thought, Trevor … have you thought about a blog?   Be handy to have an extra one, to go with Olga and Debbi’s.

†        Always the way, Debbi, with movies!   At any rate, pencilling in something would be handy!   (You notice Trevor hasn’t flounced, this morning?   What do we do if he sashays?)

Yes, I know how difficult it is to get time to watch anything. The only way I can manage is by disconnecting everything once I have achieved whatever I was trying to do for the day (that's if I manage). My friend is working tonight and her husband and daughter are going back to school so I might get a bit longer tomorrow morning to catch up on things. Perhaps even the teaser!
Do take lots of care (ah, and I agree with your comments on Donald Trump. The world is becoming a very scary place.
