Once I have done that Pauline phones to say that all is Ok with them, Gordon did not have such a good night last night but is OK today, anyway once I have had a chat with Pauline I get some Gluten free Porridge for breakfast and then settle down to watch heir Hunters until 10.00 am when I get the rollator and take a walk round to the paper shop to get a paper and then go into the park for 30 minutes to read the paper, before heading back home and settling down with the TV and the Father Dowling Mysteries These are repeats on ITV 3 of an American series about a crime solving catholic priest and his assistant there ran from 1987 - 1991. starring Tom Bosely and Tracy Nelson
