My present suggestion

Is there a married woman over forty that you need to buy a present for and you’re totally stumped? ( Highly unlikely as it’s a cinch to buy presents for older women, unless they happen to be my sister Jen, who admits it and won’t be offended by my saying so here. Anyway, Jen – I have given you two this year to increase the chance of success. xx)

What was I saying – oh yes - Why not buy this married woman over forty BUT I TOLD YOU LAST YEAR THAT I LOVED YOU?  Amazon say they can deliver it by Christmas if you order it today. It is said to be "clever, funny, subtle, wry, sad and uplifting all at once...Sue Hepworth writes thoughtfully and insightfully, and with such tenderness and humour."

OK, enough hustling for a Sunday. Do you know what?  I can cope with mastectomies, I can cope with knee replacements, and I suffer no pain. But last night I was charging around in my socks and bumped into the bedpost and broke my toe and it HURTS! It really HURTS!

I searched for an image of a broken toe on Google and the pics were so unpleasant – not because of the broken toes but because so many people have ugly feet – so I gave up and I’m putting this one here instead. (Yes, it’s summer. Remember summer?)

I just asked Dave why he has a propensity for taking pics of me on the slant and he came out with various odd reasons (as per usual) but ended up with “Well, it makes you think, doesn’t it?”

“Yes, Dave. It makes me think: Why on earth do you do it?
