    Good Evening


    And home again
    Journey back was good apart from a city gent standing on my big toe on the underground
    I yelped & he rushed away....
    Big toe dripping blood all the way up Marylebone platform
    So I maybe joining the will I/won't I lose my big toe nail club
    No air con on train on leg of journey so 2 hours in a sauna

    Dad hopefully being released tomorrow - he has found out he has kidney stones and an enlarged prostate He has consented to wearing a Conveen (at last) which will make everyone's life easier including him & his pride & embarrassment ♥
    The tablets he takes for his blood cancer at the moment have been stopped because they stop the antibiotics working, so his blood needs to be watched closely

    I have a few photos of 'stuff' from Parents so I'll bore you with them tomorrow
    It was just so hectic going back & froth to hospital every day & the traffic was ghastly. My Mum is a Saint who loves her husband dearly ♥

    Locally if you are having chemo when you get to the barrier you press the intercom and tell them so there is no charge.

    Whilst waiting for an operation a couple of years ago there was a young lady who was booked in for a minor procedure on her ankle, there had been lots of emergencies so all ops were delayed, she was panicking as she didn't have enough money on her to get out of the car park.

    hi all don't post much lately, but do read up so more of a lurker.
    what lovely weather over the weekend, dh & fil spent the weekend putting playhouse up in the garden for the smallies the are well chuffed, will try & post pic from phone if i can.
    copied the post from the other forum as a catch up to whats been happening here
    Well so much is going on here it is like a rollercoaster, dd3 is pregnant and having a girl, she is going through a rough patch with depression & decided she didn't want to continue with pregnancy that was at 19+ weeks, went through a tough patch there but she seems to have improved with the meds and now looks to be happier and planning for baby even got a name 'Harper', also means she is moving out with bf gradually.
    Dd4 has passed her driving test & is now on the roads, that was expensive. did all the costs for her till she passed her test inc 1st car, she now pays for her own car insurance but doesn't pay any board. Also gone from having a gf middle of last year to having found a bf & has decided she wants to move in their own place together, so another leaving the nest. bf seems pleasant enough and has a job.
    Having a very up & down time with ds1 it is tough at times, got most of diagnosis for him but awaiting the adhd diagnosis it is the last meeting later this month for it.
    then dd2 has just announced she is pregnant but very early on this is dd3 twin. so at some point towards the end of the year she will also be leaving home.
    Bonus to all this is ds1 wants to have the girls room in the loft, he cant wait for them to move out.
    Holidays just got way cheaper for me as we still paid if they came away with us, but quite sad we never got to go on a last family holiday before all these changes happened.

    Good morning all

    I am a very proud mother today Our DS is a star

    DD decided to estrange herself from the whole family a while ago and DS met her yesterday at a soft play He spoke to her, did not mention how she had broken out hearts asked after her family , showed her pictures of the nephew she has not seen and did not tell his dad in case in upset his Fathers day

    We do not do presents just a card, a visit and we buy a carry out

    I am more calm about work today after a melt down about unfairness on Friday

    Its in head that if he annoys me I am still off and there are a couple of extra holiday I have looked at but at least I am rational

    Enjoy whatever you do

    Let's hope the antibiotics work quick smart so at the end of his course he can go back to the tablets for blood cancer.

    I swear I will not be bored so get posting early tomorrow

    How is that sister of yours doing just now? Still mind changing?

    If only I had thought, I could have brought you all a lovely picture

    Yesterday, DS3 hosted this Fathers Day BBQ. He was thoughtful and placed table and chairs in the shade as well as a gazebo. How thoughtful of him . On arrival I sat in his dining room to get cool by the fan, after 15 minutes I headed outside.

    Not long after, I was melting, honestly thoroughly wilted, I said I might go inside for a while but before I could go , ds appeared with a fan a tall electric fan into the garden which kept whooshing past me a delightful puff of cold air every time it swung by

    After over four hours we left to come home, I thought I was going to die, couldn't get my breath

    I've decided if I need to go out I shall make an early start, I'm normally in our town just before 9am.

    How much earlier could I manage I wonder? Our local Mr A opens at 8am so that would have to do

    Off to a darkened room (not opened curtains yet) and my fan

    Hugs to the poorly Elite and those low in spirit, you're in my thoughts today xx

    Snap, hope your big toe nail survives xx
