This chap is Yusuf. He lives on the back of the scullery door. He is made from an elderly coacoanut (and one of my old work aprons) His job is (was) to deter the grandchildren from the wine racks nearby. I don't think this works very well, especially as Jusuf now has a rather beery, leery, (but cheery) look himself.
I haven't yet written the main news this week, which is that Ann had the cataract removed from her right eye on Wednesday (she had the one in her left eye successfully removed on July the fourth). She is still sporting what appears to be an unusually large monocle (a guard) over her right eye, which she'll be wearing for a day or so yet. She's also been advised not to drive for a month (and, as I've been medically advised not to drive again, that leaves us relying on taxis / and friends for a short times - which could be a lot worse. )
I must say that Ann seems to be recovering very well from the op already, which is great. I'm writing a lot today, to take advantage of Ruth's new, written record, of how to put photies onto blog entries - so far it's working quite well.
Ruth plans to return to Sweden, via London, tomorrow. Grand daughter Freja , plans to stay with us until February, which is great. They have really been pulling their weight!, as have all our family, God bless 'em!
More later perhaps.
