the moment TGD uttered the words that mean I will be released back into the community*, I had the following tune in my mind. . .

. . .think I preferred being empty headed after all

*'parently my memory is not supposed to be being as damaged as it has been, so no more electrical treatments for moi!

(and apparently there is no word for your brain thinking you recognise everyone, even tho you know that you don't - I'm a medical phenomenon, but that comes as no surprise to yourgoodself now does it. . .)

I'm comin' home, I've done my time
Now I've got to know what is and isn't mine
If you received my letter tellin' you I'd soon be free
Then you'll know just what to do if you still want me
If you still want me

Tie a yellow ribbon 'round the old oak tree
It's been three long years
Do you still want me?
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree
I'll stay on the bus
Forget about us
Put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree

Bus driver, please look for me
'Cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see
I'm really still in prison, and my love she holds the key
A simple yellow ribbon's what I need to set me free
I wrote and told her please

Now the whole damn bus is cheering
And I can't believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons 'round the old oak tree
I'm comin' home

FF will miss you!

But then your home has missed you and needs you back.

You are more than Phenominal, medically or otherwise :)

you guys are so sweet. . .

zigz FF and I were developing a bit of a raport, it has to be said - I always fancied a toyboy. . .

katherine you said it, it's good to be home and let a new tune replace that one, eh!

mel please accept my most humble apologies :-) and, guess what, I'm blogging en plein aire from the Italian deli by the river: power and delicious coffee!!!!! what more could a girl ask for? good company, perhaps - but hey! I virtually have you guys

mig there is not good news on the plant watering front, erm it seems that XCH and SP didn't quite understand the requirements - another trip to the garden centre is called for, and in the meantime I have lots of dried thyme to add to my seasoned flour next time I make potato cakes with the left over mash. . . and I could make half a dozen lavender bags, if only I had some lovely fabric. . .

ho hum
