That's a note I used to leave on my doorstep back in my long and distant past - for the milkman.
When I was first married we used to have milk delivered to the door but when my kids were young and I went back to work I stopped having it delivered. Why? Well it used to sit on the doorstep all day and in the summer would be rancid by the time I got back home from work.
Now you're wondering what I'm on about. Well basically - no milk/tatting today!!!! Not because I've gone back to work - nobody would employ an old git like me. It's because I've been so darn busy with other 'life things' lately that I've really not got anything coherent to show!!!
As the BBC used to say when they had a break in service - 'normal service will be resumed as soon as possible'!!!
