    Good Morning,

    Bit cloudy here. Just deciding how much washing to hang out and how much to put in tumble drier. Got beds to change too but no-one in them so they can wait until I am more organised.

    Glad you are getting stronger FF. My mother is dreadful for rushing about and has cracked her ribs etc several times through tripping over things. (or being pulled over by her Lab!)

    Enjoy your day indie. I am enjoying just relaxing with lappy. Not sure what DH is doing.

    Great you had another lovely holiday in Madeira leanfun. Do you go to the same hotel? A couple down the road go to Madeira, sure they bought some sort of deal from the hotel.

    Must get on. Hope everyone is well - catch up with you all later.

    Good afternoon all, hope you are OK today, if not big hugs for you.

    Glad you are back safe Sheils, we have bedding in the washer waiting to go out but doubt it will dry today as its too damp. Is that your breaks done for a while or have you more booked?

    Loving the pics today thanks for them. Tried to put one on myself but only have Google Chrome installed at the moment and dont want to install anything else until I am sure things are OK with the laptop. Also can't remember how to do it on chrome LOL.

    It will be nice for you to have the day to yourself Indie, try and do something nice.

    Will try and pop back in later, must go check the oil and water in the car as we are having the day at Seaton tomorrow to see the family.

    Good afternoon everyone!

    Hope you're all ok.

    Don't know what happened to 'the predicted rain' we
    were supposed to have .... no sign of it at all. It's lovely
    and sunny with just the odd cloud floating by - maybe
    we'll be getting some wet stuff later on!



    Welcome back sheils! Pleased you had a lovely
    time.

    Hope your DD2 is feeling a bit better today wingo. I
    saw the news re Jean Alexander this morning - very
    sad. So talented .... loved watching her in Corrie and
    also Last of the Summer Wine - couldn't believe it when
    I read that she had played the part of Auntie Wainwright
    for 22 years! Where did the time go!

    Pleased you got your lappy back sylv - have a lovely
    time at Seaton tomorrow seeing your family.

    Well this won't do, time to get on! Have a lovely
    Saturday all and take care.

    Yeah lovely pics today FF and Alfie. I did find one and thought I had put it on but it vanished!
    Been a bit damp here so most of washing went in drier, still got some stuff on line that I will need to check soon.

    We have break in Blackpool booked for end of month Sylvia so will see the Illuminations before they finish.
    Hope you get a nice day for Seaton tomorrow.

    Hi all. Busy and tiring day here with three GKs. They had a great time in local park while it was sunny early afternoon. Poured about 5pm.

    Sylvia hope you have a great day tomorrow at Seatin.

    Wingo hope DD2 is feeling better.

    Indie hope you had a restful day off.

    Firefly great yo hear you are feeling better.

    Sheils we usually go to the same hotel for the main part of our holiday. Monday is the popular flight day and as the airport is very small and hot it's too much for DH so we often go or come back early and try out different hotels on the Island.
    We never thought we would be going to the same place again. We have been to lots of places in Engkand and Scotland and Europe but we love Madeira. We made holiday friends who have moved there and other friends there. The people are very friendly and positive in their outlook.
    This time my sister came in on a cruise ship for a day with another couple. She married again recently and DH does not fly. We had a great day with them. Only problem was her DH does not like heights or drops and on Madeira you are either going up or down and the roads are narrow with drops. It's so bad they built the airport runway on stilts at sea.

    Forgot to say I had a WEM yesterday for tickets to Kew and a book.

    Turns out DH has never been there and tickets are valid for a year.

    Hope everyone has a good weekend.

    Good Morning,

    It is raining here too FF although not that heavily.
    Hope it will be better for Sylvia's Seaton trip.
    Sounds like DS3 is going to try and get home for a couple of nights on Tuesday so will need to get his room back to normal for him as I used it for DS2s stay. He hasn't had much time off since he went to Gleneagles so will be missing his friends. His phone has died though so difficult to get in touch to get his correct plans. New one being delivered to him tomorrow though he hopes.

    Well done on another win leanfun. Best I have done is £1 from GfK media and 25p and 10p from Topcashback!

    Hope everyone has a lovely day.

    Hope it starts to improve soon. xxx

    We actually had torrential rain throughout the night ....



    which thankfully cleared up this morning but the
    garden is fairly soggy now!



    In fact it's been a glorious day here - blue sky and
    sunny, just starting to cloud over now. Hope it's not
    going to rain again - else I'll be swimming around
    the garden.



    Haven't been out there working today though cos I
    thought I should really catch up with boring chores etc
    and get them all done and dusted ... and yay, they are!
    So now sitting down, having a cuppa and relaxing.

    Your holiday in Madeira sounds wonderful and how lovely
    to meet up with your sister and DH and their friends from
    the cruise liner!

    It will be nice to have DS3 home for a couple of days
    sheils - sounds as if he's been very busy at Gleneagles.

    Well, time to do a few comps me thinks! Have a
    lovely rest of the weekend all and take care.

    Good evening everyone, didn't go to Seaton in the end. Was taking Lottie to DD's for her to look after and it was torential rain so rang and said we would go next Sunday instead as didn't want to be driving in those conditions. Wished I had gone later as we had lovely sunshine!

    Think the rain has been pretty general by the what you are all saying.

    Oh Rose, I used to get very bad ears when I was little too, I think its one of the worst places for pain so hope it eases us for you so you can get a good nights sleep.

    Made a veg chillie for tea so hope its nice. Was naughty earlier and had bacon (grilled) and fried egg and some white bread so trying to get back on track LOL before Thrusday weigth in.

    Have a lovely evening everyone.

    Good Morning,

    Going to be a wet day I think. Still school holidays here so only to be expected. Must get the ironing done anyway!
    DS2 gone back to agency work so that he can get some time off with his gf . He backed out of leasing the hotel as owner was dictating too many things. Anyway he is in Arran just now. He drove 2 hours to ferry, then an hour crossing and 15 mins drive to hotel last night and when he got there at 7.30pm they got him to work! Bet he wasn't expecting that.
    Have made a bit of an effort with the comps as hadn't really entered any this month. Must have a look at the Mag Dailies again although there doesn't seem to be as many exciting prizes as usual on them.
    Wishing everyone a lucky week.

    Good morning everyone!

    Hope you're all ok.

    Sorry to hear that your ear is still very painful rose.

    Thankfully you managed to get an appointment at the
    surgery for this afternoon. Hopefully they can establish
    why you're in so much discomfort with it and set you
    right with appropriate meds.

    Please let us know how you get on. xxx

    Crikes - Lol at the weather of late! It really can't make up
    its mind.

    Sunny one minute, raining the next, then back to
    sun again!



    Hope you enjoyed the veg chilli yesterday sylv. Good
    luck at SW on Thursday.

    Your DS2 sounds a very sensible lad sheils - and well
    done to him backing out of leasing the hotel due to the
    owner dictating this n' that etc etc!

    Well, I'd best get on .... have a lovely and lucky Monday
    all and take care.

    Evening peeps been to doctors. Got eardrops and have to try and keep ear warm I have an infection in my middle ear. Have to go back to docs if it does not clear up within 3/4 days. Doc says drops will numb ear so that I do not have so much pain. Just about hit the roof when he used his scope/light thing to look into it. Have not to get water in to it so will have to be carefull in shower ( will just have a bath instead) Also hair washing is out until it has cleared up. He also explained the dizziness that is happening occasionally is because of the infection. It does not last long just have to get my balance if I stand up quickly or sit up from a lying down position. So that was my exciting appointment with doc.
