Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

    That website is too funny. I love how they have categories for 'Awesome Stuff' and 'Weird Things', but the stuff is exactly the same!

    Sasha, my MIL has even given us doilies and I said to my husband "what exactly are we suppose to do with these?" She also gave us tacky plates to hang on the wall. Luckily she never comes here in person to see that these TREASURES are not on display.

    Maybe this is a good watch for pacing http://www.mcphee.com/shop/products/Backwards-Watch.html It seems to be about how my day goes, I'm so slow I'm in reverse. LOL

    Ooh, pedometer - that's a good idea. I've got one but it has died. I'll get another.

    That TV show sounds amazing. That doormat sounds as though that way, madness lies. Am quite taken with the idea of the biro lampshade, though!

    Doily pattern books! I think my grandma used to have them. Ahh, the seventies! Ahh, doilies!

    Love that Archie MacPhee site, Merry! There's some quality stuff out there.

    My birdsong clock arrived yesterday and I've been trying it out. I love it! The birdsongs are really good! I thought they might consist of awful electronic squawking but actually there are some really lovely ones and they are realistic - I'm particularly fond of two o'clock, whatever that is (not big on ornithology). One bird is a bit weird - they're supposed to be British birds but I can't imagine where that one hangs out - sounds like somebody stepping on a bag of peanuts - but mostly, they're beautiful. So rare that something off the internet exceeds expectations! It's certainly helping me pace (speaking of which, something just warbled so I must go and lie down!).

    I could spend ALL my money on that Archie Mc Phee website!

    Sasha, could the peanut crunching be a woodpecker?

    Having heard the weird bird again this morning, I realise I misremembered its weirdness - it doesn't sound like peanuts crunching, it sounds like that bird that you can hear in the background in that Arnold Schwarznegger movie "Predator" which, as far as I'm aware, was filmed in the South American jungle, not Surrey. It sounds like rattling. Was too lazy to fish the clock out of its hiding place to look at what it was (but now I'm curious!).
