Another surprise

The security guard at Lauren's Patisseries which is located opposite the scene of the accident yesterday was the one who informed some of our staff that Margaret had died. We spent the entire afternoon, evening and beyond upset with the whole situation and wrapped up in emotional turmoil.

He was wrong! He was so wrong! She's alive, albeit not too well, but ready to start kicking.

Margaret not only survived, but is more concerned about her broken glasses than broken bones!

Good news or what!?

Get in there Margaret!


  1. Ken, that is such good news! It's the kind of miracle that we always hope for when we first hear bad news. I guess that unwelcome visitor got shown the door in her case, eh?

  2. Great news. What a relief. It's almost unforgiveable that someone could spread the rumour of the poor lady's demise so convincingly.

  3. Oh my goodness, I arrive at your blog after a few weeks out of the loop to find a very dramatic tale. I was always going to work backwards here but now I have to do it straight away to find out the story

  4. Whew, that is wonderful news, Ken. I'm glad to hear it wasn't more sadness in your circle of friends.

    Thanks so much for your kind words over at WM. They are always much appreciated.

    I adore your fun new header image...wow!

  5. That is such wonderful news, Ken. What a great relief for you and your colleagues. It's quite cheered me up. :)

  6. Actually Randi, it is a miracle in a roundabout way and yes, he was pipped at the post this time.

    I agree Jean, it was very convincing and we were all taken in...except for those who always suspected something was not quite right.

    Hi Julie
    Drama indeed. How are you settling in the garden of England? I bet there are a few dramas there too!

    Hi Willow
    Everyone likes a happy ending; at least I hope it all ends with smiles. I'm sure it will.
    They weren't kind words-they were accurate.

    Hi Jo
    It was good news for sure and, like you, it cheered us up too.

    It's nice to hear from you. I left a message on you ansafone...you aren't easy to get hold of. Hope to see you soon.

  7. Not there yet Ken - well, I was there last week and now back here and marking away the days until the move takes place. Hence I will not be around much now until I am safely settled in the new house.

    A Bientot

  8. What great news. I bet you were all on moment in tears of unhappiness to tears of joy.

    Love the new header. x

  9. I' marking the days until I go the other way Julie. Nice of you to drop by. Hope the move goes well.

    Hi Phil
