    for Wembley all those years ago!


    GS win was an Xbox game a controller and headphones he is over the moon. He will have to use his dads Xbox though as it is Xbox One game and he has his dads old 360

    Good Morning,

    Another lovely sunny mrning here, weather has been bright for ages now.
    Could do with being a little warmer but perfect for gardening and walking.
    DD is back from Kos now and was up yesterday although she was pretty tired as hadn't got home until 4.30am. Her poor BF was working at 10am.
    DS1 , GF and DS3 coming back from their Highland tour this afternoon and then we are all going out for dinner at fish restaurant. Parents are coming out too. DS3 going to cook tomorrow night so I will be having an easy 2 days!

    Yes leanfun it is DS1's gfs first time in Scotland and she is loving it. She is blown away by the scenery but does feel the cold even though it has been quite nice. She hasn't seen anything but sunshine here yet!

    Had a WEM from Woman & Home and have won a £150 Posterlounge voucher. Have had a look and they have lovely pictures at under a £10 .
    Hope everyone has a lucky day.

    Morning. Cheers to Sylvia s DH. Happy birthday.

    Well done on GSs Win Rose. Expect he will enjoy and have great fun.

    Sheils just pleased your visitors have fine weather. I think there is anywhere like it for scenery but can always remember wearing the children wearing woolies.
    Well done on your mag win. Great to be able to choose something you like.

    I too had a WEM yesterday for a hotel and family visit to Marwell zoo.

    Waiting to hear from them if my DD2 can use it. As it is their wedding anniversary in June.

    Hope everyone has a good day.

    Just had email no problem about DD2 and family going using a Marwell prize. This is so good for them.

    Hi. My DH says thank you all for all the lovely birthday wishes today. WD ff for remembering.

    Looks like there have been some lovely wins in the Inn over the last couple of days. Well done everyone. We have had about 3 small wins this month so far so not grumbling .

    We have been to family tonight and had a lovely BBQ type meal inside and a lovely time and going out again on Saturday with OH's DS2 to a pub where we can have a meal and take the pups with us.

    I hope that you are all keeping well. I have been diagnosed with Osteoporosis and have fractured my spine so trying to take it easy but stay active. Have been given new meds to take.

    Will try and pop in again soon.
    BIG THANKS TO ALL WHO POST THE COMPETITIONS

    Hi Sylvia,

    It was great to hear you have enjoyed the celebrations for your DH.

    So sorry to hear of your diagnosis and do hope you are not in too much pain. I have had two friends who had spine fractures due to Osteoporosis.

    One thought she was going to be house bound and was in extreme pain. She was given the one tablet per week and after a period of time she was able to go out again and pain free. Her doctor carefully monitors her bone density so she does not have to stay on the same dosage.

    My other friend had a fall in our garden and they found many micro fractures in her spine. Again after a number of months on the tablets her fractures mended and she was pain free.

    The medication for Osteoporosis is what I consider one of the real successes of modern medicine. I do hope that given time it works for you.

    Good morning everyone

    We're in for another warm day here, already been
    out & given the tubs a good splash of water to freshen them
    up a bit. Looks as if it'll be a glorious weather day tomorrow
    for the 'big day' at Windsor!


    It's lovely to 'see' you again sylv. Sounds as if a wonderful
    time was had by all yesterday and more to look forward to
    tomorrow. I'm so sorry to hear about your diagnosis but
    I agree with leanfun re medication for Osteoporosis &
    am hopeful that it will work for you, given time. xxx
    Very well done with your three small wins this month!


    Happy birthday wishes to your friend rose.


    Have a lovely & lucky day all! Take care.

    Morning everyone. Sun is shining again here this morning. Home town team are playing Celtic in the Scottish Cup final so Good Luck to them. There has been good luck banners on the lamp post down the main street all week and neighbours hubby said their is bunting in the club colours all over the place. Supporters will be marching through the town later on the way to their buses. So between that and the Royal Wedding the place is going to be quiet in the afternoon. DIL is working today so have GK's in a couple of hours and they are going to hoover and dust for me Bless them. They have also made up a chicken salad for our lunch and they want a baked potato with it. Hope everyone is well. Have a wonderfull day peeps.

    Very sunny here today. It often is for FA cup.

    Rose hope you have a good day with GKs. Thereís the wedding for them to watch too. Chicken salad sounds good.

    Sylvia pleased I could help and do hope it works for you. When I went to visit my friend, who was the in her seventies then and single, she had been given a trolly to push her food from small kitchen to her table. She was unable to put her online shopping away and looked dreadful with the pain. She was considering looking for a home. Months not years down the line she was out in the buses again and as I said is carefully monitored.
    Sorry to hear about your DH. My DH has had heart problems. From our experience heart attacks donít always show up on ECGs but usually do on blood tests. Hoping his results are good when they come through.
    Pleased you both have family nearby.

    I was going to cut our front small hedge yesteday or day before but saw neighbors and the little toddler didnít look good. They had been to the hospital with him in the night as he had breathing problems. They said he had a virus. So I didnít want to make a lot of noise might have a go this afternoon when sun has gone down.

    Hope everyone has a good weekend.

    PS no Rolling Stones win.

    Anyone have funny stories from their wedding day? I remember all morning my dad was very quiet and marching up and down the house. He was sooooooo nervous that he was nearly sick at one point. He at one point poured himself a whisky and my mum caught him it was promptly put down the sink and he was warned not to touch it as she said she didn't want him breathing alcohol fumes over the guest as we were greeting them at the reception. Anyway once my two sisters and her left in the car for the church I poured him a large one and told him to get it down his neck. At the reception my mum had a few words with him and he said that I had poured it for him and she said oh yes blame her. She didn't believe him so had to tell her it was me. all I did was giggle and the look she gave me would have sunk a battle ship lol. Another thing that happened was after the meal I was bursting for the loo so got hold of my sisters to help me as dress had a long train and I didn't know how I was going to manage. It took us about ten minutes to sort out dress as we could not help laughing because three of us were trying to squeeze into this small toilet. My mother came in to see what we were up to and we got the look that said for goodness sake behave lol. In the end the whole skirt and train of the dress was lifted over my head. Very ladylike lol.
