    Morning everyone. Mr seagull is at it again this morning. For about the last hour he has been making one almighty noise. Weather looking quite good outside this morning. Need to go out later to buy a birthday present so DIL is coming down and she is going to wheel me about. Wish I was back on my feet again as I hate this relying on everyone. I know it will take a while but my patience is running out. Hope I find everyone well.

    Rose sorry to hear about your neighbour. She must have had a lot of pain.

    Take it easy Rose then one day you will be able to do things again by yourself.

    Bright here too this morning. We are forecast a warm day.

    Hope everyone had a good day.

    Morning, oh dear rose hope your neighbour is not in too much pain. It sounds painful.I can understand your impatience to be up and about doing things yourself but it won't be long and it's great to have so many friends and family around you to help. It's a lovely day here already so will be out in the garden as well later. Hope everyone has a lucky day.

    Morning all,

    Been a busy few days here. DS1 and GF have headed off to Glasgow to pick DS3 up and then they are all heading to Loch Lomond, Glencoe and staying at Fort William tonight. Then they are heading to Loch Ness and Inverness, returning on Thursday night or Friday so it will be peaceful here until they all return. DD returns in the early hours of tomorrow. Sounds like their Kos holiday has been greatly enjoyed. May seems to be all go .

    Keeping up with you all.

    Going to get a few comps done when I have the chance.

    Hi all!

    Phew! It's a beautiful day here but rather warm!





    Just back from doing a bit of town shopping for little GDs.
    Thought I would go in today because when it's warm, people
    tend to avoid town (I can understand why!). The place was
    more or less deserted and I managed to purchase quite a
    few bits n' bobs for the weeny ones.


    Window cleaner called too just as I'd returned home so that
    was excellent timing. As per usual we spent a good hour or
    so putting the world to rights!

    rose! Sending you both (((hugs))) and get well wishes. x
    I agree with others - you are slowly but surely getting better
    rose - you just have to be a very patient patient, iyswim!
    I can understand how you feel though, you're very similar to me,
    fiercely independent!


    Sounds as if you've been having a grand time with the family
    sheils! It's certainly a busy time at yours this May!


    Have a lovely rest of the day all and please take care whatever
    your plans.

    Morning everyone. Sun is shining here. Have aquired two bar type stools. Saw them in the British Heart Foundation shop yesterday. Got them for 10. Sent one round to neighbour. So I am now able to sit in kitchen and cook etc and not just stick things in oven. Neighbour thought I was off my head when I phoned her to say I was sending one round to her but she now sees the logic. Instead of her standing on one leg with her crutches she can sit and potter. Once we are done with them they can go back to charity shop. DIL also thought I was going loopy as she has similar type stools around the breakfast bar and would never have thought of using them like that lol. Anyway hope everyone is well. Be lucky peeps.

    Good morning everyone


    It's a bright n' beautiful day here and thankfully
    a lot cooler than yesterday!


    I'd forgotten that Mummy2 was off to Rome with her mum
    this week leanfun. Hope they're having a wonderful
    time. xx


    The bar type stools (for yourself & neighbour to use) are a
    brilliant idea rose. Where there's a will there's a way!


    Have a lovely & lucky Wednesday all and please take care
    whatever your plans.

    Morning, no sun here today. Looks overcast and have just put cardi on as felt chilli.Great use of stools rose.it was lovely to think of your neighbour as well. Good to hear your glitter pens arrived ff. I had a can of whisky and lime turn up yesterday and like everyone else it was wrapped up so much it took ages to get it open,lol. I don't drink whisky but son and GF had it last night,they enjoyed it. I am popping to local market this morning for a look round. Hope you all have a lucky day.

    A bit dull here too. Managed to sleep longer than 5am this morning.

    Great idea about the stools Rose.

    Sheils that is a great trip your DSs are taking. Has your DS1s GF been to Scotland before? Do hope the weather is clear for them. Beautiful scenery.

    Indie well done on the Whiskey drink. Enjoy your day off.

    Reminds me I had a freebie razor turn up yesterday. Well done on glitter pens Firefly.

    Alfie great you were able to shop without crowds for your GDs. thanks for the coffee. Just having one here.

    Strange conversation here yesterday. I say to DH just found a comp for Rolling Stones on Tw but who likes them. He says I do and would love to go. First I have heard of this after 45 years. He is big on Jazz. So we enter comp. Next thing I know he cannot stop laughing reading something off the laptop. He had written to a football friend asking if he would be free on the day of the concert and the friend replied with six quotes from Rolling Stones saying he would love to go if we won. I said hold on a minute I have not won much lately so it is highly unlikely we win. DHs reply was well it is about time you did.

    Reminded us of years ago of DD1s only competition entry. She must have been nearly 17. She went in for tickets to a Wembley football match with the Evening Standard. She asked her football friend to go with her if she won. DH and DD2 had gone away. One morning there was screaming in the hall. The postman had brought the tickets. She phoned her friend who to her dismay her mother had booked them to go on holiday that day. DD was so convinced she was going to win. She could not find anyone else to go so in the end took our DS who was not too keen to go and I worried all day about them. He was only 13.

    It is hard trying to write without using apostrophes.

    Hope everyone has a good day. Hugs if you need one.

    Just had a box delivered for GS. DIL is going to pick it up when she collects GK's from school. Well at least one of us is winning. Which reminds me must search for comps for kiddywinks as I with one thing and another have not done so for a while. Nice little surprise for him. (just to add I was shouting at delivery guy the door is open as it was taking me an age to get to it. He gave me a strange look until he realised I couldn't walk very well)

    Morning peeps. Looks as if it is going to be another sunny day here. DIL is dropping in this morning with bread and milk and have asked her to see if she can get me some strawberry tarts from Greggs. She is also going to take away my ironing. Told her not to worry about it as I have enough clothes to last me for months but she insisted. (she actually enjoys ironing) . Hope I find you all well. Be lucky.
