Vegetarian Korma, Aidan you could have chips with that. :D

Anybody watch the new 3-part series last night? BBC4 9pm. All about different crafts, rug making, type setting etc. Next week its cross stitch and quilting. I thought some of you might enjoy it, Carol? I've told Emily and Alex, Alex does a lot of cross stitch.

10 Manatees? Or is that just the babies?

Toni, I hope your auras go away soon, and Barbara, I hope you feel better soon.

Joan, I always go careful - don't want a fall. Did you tell me you are due a break from Alendronic Acid soon? Does Sue ave Osteoporosis too?

Lots of sparkles for everyone. t4591

Hi to all, a wet and windy night here cfly better than snow admittedly.

Not quite sure where the day has vanished too, but, vanish it has.

Hi Joan, I hope all the snow has gone now and you are able to get out and about. Let's hope that we don't get another so called beast from the east again.
Thank you for your best wishes for Dad at the Drs. They usually say I have background retinopathy, little blood vessels that burst at the back of your eye, then go away, they like to keep a lid on them though, as they can get worse.

you are welcome to the breakfast Toni, there was quite a selection of goodies :)

Sorry to hear that you had three auras during the night, horrid, horrid, let's get those sparkles to send them away t115006 t115006

Pepe was over, hence both ears were wet, he is a love, bless him, thinking he is Dr Longstockings :lol: :roll: Pepe is not good at night flying, hence Hermione allows transportation.

So many manatee's, we will make sure they are all looked after and made strong again, so they can go back to their native waters.

There was definitely some magic :)

Oh if all hospitals were as quiet and seen immediately, boy would that be something.

Good that you went to see your friend, it was her Birthday as I recall.

Did you give choir practice a miss tonight? Maybe wise.

I can understand Lucy being so worried, about PIP. I feel as if I should not be out and feel guilty for it. I noticed that there were new signs on the disabled loo's in Sainsb today. Accessible toilet, "not all disabilities are visible" which is very, very true, any of us can look ok from a cursory meeting, we smile, say we are "fine", but open the book and the reading does not match the smile at all.

Hi Kath, thank you for the veggie Korma, I will have some chips with that, without a doubt :)

No, we didn't see the programme, we will look for it on catch up. B and I would be very interested, with his seed bead work and amazing creations he comes up with. We always watch the Kirsty Alsop crafty programmes.

10 Adult manatee's and 5 babies, so 15 in all. There could always be more, Johnny is on full alert to have any injured or stressed ones, be transported to our lovely pools and lagoons.

Hi Barbara, so you are a bit better, but have had a couple of squiffy moments. I am sending out some extra strong get better vibes for you and Toni, we want your heads as well as possible. t115006 t115006

I went to get copies of my recent bloods, for my cardio visit next week, all seems ok apart from my Triglycerides which are up quite a lot. :roll: ...........will see what the cardio says, as my cholesterol is normal......... :? I had to have a scone with cream, to get over it.

I am glad you went to choir practice, very wise not to go into the shed, you would be more than iffy. :shock: :mrgreen:

Might be time to finish that rug, after 46 years :lol: :lol:

Dad was ok with B going in with him to see the Dr, who was very nice. Dads thyroxine levels are slightly off, which could account for some memory problems, (personally I don't think it is hormone related, but, who am I). Anyway, Dad said he didn't have any of the symptoms that the Dr mentioned, but if he felt the need he would ask to see a specialist. Everything else was ok with is bloods. The GP is aware of dads short term memory loss though.

I was in the t room and had had one very strong coffee, by the time we left, well over an hour or so later, I had had three and I was leaking and in quite a dither. Two is ok, but three, a bit much for my cardio and nerves. :shock: :shock: My own fault I know, but they were SO good.

Popped into the vets for more food, which Pepe is loving. the last four boxes he has had, has been a nightmare to get him to eat. These are a different batch, so he is happy boy again. Spoiled, no, not at all :roll: :roll:

Sainsb then home, lunch was late, which kind of knocks on to the rest of the day.

Watched the final stages of the ski jumping which was on for ages, now it is after midnight.............tennis is on, in the background.

We are having an at home day today, B is going to do all the hard floors with the new swifty / microfiber thingy.........Should be interesting, as the flooring in the adapted bathroom, is like totally non slip, even when sopping wet. It grabs anything you put on it, cloths, mops etc, like velcro. There could be "words" :shock:

I hope everyone else is as ok can be. Carol, Christine, Kerrin, Elizabeth, Mig, Toady, DD, Charrisse.

Many hugs and sparkles to one and all t4591 t115006 Let me find something for breakfast.

Take care, XXXX Aidan

Granola tarts with fruits and yogurt.

Of course, it is Suesday :)

Hi Sue, lovely to see you and hope that the doggies enjoyed their walk with Joan, while you get ready for dial a ride.
I hope all the snow has gone now and doesn't come back until next winter.

We all help and support each other, everyone is very special and you both care a lot about us all : t4591 t4591

Hi Kath, those chips :shock: :shock: , they are a must have, they look amazing, so I will grab a doggy bag (not a plastic one) and potter along with some as fast as my wobbly legs will go. :lol: :lol: :roll:
You are not a moaner at all Kath, we have lots of health things going on, that drive us nuts sometimes.

I am sure Barbara is already on with finishing the rug :? :? maybe

Hope Barbara and Toni are feeling a bit better today, leaving abundant hugs and well wishes t4591 t115006 t115006

Hi to everyone else, I cannot believe I am writing this, just after mid day. Right, onward, more pills needed. Clothes to dry, pottering to be done.

Love to all, catch you later. XXXX Aidan

Hi to all

I know, 3 super strong coffee's, with extra shots, no wonder I was in a tizzy. We both leak coffee and I know that two is definitely my limit. My Cardio would not be too pleased with me. Sssh, we won't tell him.

The only thing that knows what is going on here is my phone, without it none of us would remember where we should be and when, with who and why :roll: :roll: :? :? I have post it notes, always stuck to one of the kitchen cupboards.

I am glad you are feeling better today - very pleased to hear, let's hope Toni is as well.

Right, onward, once more. Be back later, Pepe is on the move........xx Aidan

hello everyone :)

Lovely to see Sue on behalf f Joan. W do no more for Joan than she does for us - we all look after each other :

Barbara I am so glad to hear you are on the mend. Good job you went to choir we are singing Sunday morning at All Saints. After the 'Safari Supper' too :shock:

AND the clocks going forwards we will be asleep..... :roll:

Kath 15 Manatees for now although the plan is for them to breed more with them being so valuable and endangered :(

Thanks for the lunch - Had extra salt and vinegar on my chips (I never do really!).

Aidan good news that Dad's bloods weren't too much to worry about and that the GP is now alerted to the early memory issues :)

Dr Longstockings was here in the night (C/O Hermione) I didn't hear him just work up with wet ears when I heard him and Sleek shrieking with laughter :wink:

Had two in the night and so far two today one at Pom's and the other at lunchtime. I need them GONE for the Safari Supper tomorrow :roll:

Sleek informs me that the food purchased from the Vet's is edible.

That was it Edible. No more no less.

I can only manage on full-strength coffee(or tea) now too. Cardio would probably agree. Any stress brings on the need for cake to calm the BP back down I agree :lol:

The house is almost as pristine as I want it for tomorrow's guests....I am doing starters. Pom has a free pass and isn't doing a course at all :shock:

I must have spent 3 hours just in the bathroom :shock:

Onwards and upwards!

Love

Toni xx

Curry night at least!! :D :D :D

Evening all

One more busy day to go tomorrow as we have open morning at church tomorrow well a busy 2 days have been out from 11.30 yesterday morning bite to eat out at lunch time then straight on to the MS group I go to with my cards once a month. arrived back home about 5.pm from that, then out again at about 7pm for the fortnightly church meal, and finally got home around 10.45pm. Today out at midday for dinner today with MR T then straight on to meet my friend for coffee at 1.30 and got home about 4.30pm. so shattered tonight .one bonus yesterday was that I was very tired last night and went straight to sleep had a very good nights sleep. only woke up once during the night instead of 2/3 times.

Aidan Yes off to Edinburgh looking forward to it as well. we are going by train and travelling 1st class as it is a long journey. didn't sell any cards yesterday maybe if I am lucky I will sell some tomorrow at church ( and as they say pigs might fly ha ha ) we will see.

Joan Yes everything is good here hope you and Sue are good too.

Toni yes hopefully at least the 1/2 lb comes off this week. more if possible because we are away for four days from the Tuesday after Easter. Mr T hasn't had an MRI before this was his first all went ok with it he says. neck dose not seem to be too bad.
I'm sure Lucy would get Pip but they have tightened things up so much, I am lucky because I am still getting DLA because when they introduced pip I was already 65 and they did not touch that it stayed as it was.

Barbara yes Edinburgh we have changed trains there but never actually stayed there so it will be something new to us too. will as far as the weight is concerned I should be ok next week as it is only 1/2 lb but well we will see.

Its that time again folks and off I must go for a little potter

love and sparkles to you all t4591 t4591 t4591 t115006 t115006 t115006

Hi to all, it is chilly again tonight, wet too.

catching up with the tennis from Miami seems to be eating away into the evening / morning.

You will all be asleep Toni, after a safari supper and then turning the clocks onward :shock: I am sure Barbara will have set her alarm

Hermione has said that Pepe cannot be on medical duties and then spend his time shrieking with laughter with Miss Sleek :? :? That is not fair on the patient. Hermione was most disgruntled. Ooops. Any medical visits are purely medical, not hysterical. Oh dear, first being in Minerva's bad books and now Hermione's. There could well be a call from Hogwarts, for some extra tuition.

The edible food seems to be acceptable, at the moment :? that could change at any time I guess.

You do need the Auras gone, so extra strong well wishes to send them on their way. t115006 t115006

So you are on starters for the safari supper, how did Pom manage a free pass? Or does it work in order and everyone gets a turn.

I am sure you are all pristine and more than ready for guests. 3 hours in the bathroom, that's some serious cleaning, I am proud of you :)

B was busy with the swifty moppy thing, as I thought, there were words and it kept falling apart, so he ended up on his hands and knees. I did some cleaning of areas I could reach. Some vacuuming with the cordless, but I soon got out of breath, so had to stop. :roll:

Extra cake is certainly needed to soak up coffee, without a doubt.

We are out with Dad today, popping over to a nursery to look at plants, then come back this way for coffee etc, not sure if the GC or the T room in town.

I hope the curry was good :) smells lovely.

Hi Carol, have your little feet touched base yet? You must be worn out, here, there and everywhere.
No wonder you slept so well :shock:

I hope you sell some cards today, at Church, people really need to take a good look at them and see how lovely they are.

You will be comfortable in 1st class, en route to Edinbugh, it is a long way, so you need to be in decent seating, with food and drinks served. You can get up and have a potter about too, we don't want you shaped like a train seat :?

Glad that everything went ok for Mr T's MRI scan.

Well, my back is shouting rather loudly, so I will have to move around a bit.

Hi to Christine, Kerrin, Elizabeth, Mig, Toady, DD, Charrisse and all.

Love and sparkles to all t4591 t4591 t115006 t115006

Some Unicorn cookies for breakfast :)

Joan, you could never say anything wrong. :D :oops: I'm going to have a little cry now. Bless you. xxxx

Aidan, I'm glad Pepe thinks the new food is edible. :lol: . Thank you for the unicorn cookies.

Carol, glad to hear you had a good night's sleep. Have you been floating with the Manatees? I'd love to, but the baby Manatees would think I was one of the mums. :?

Help yourselves to some chocolate cake. :D

Afternoon to all, dry, quite mild, not a bad day really

Joan you would never say anything wrong, you are the last person I can possibly think of, who would do that. You summed things up just fine.

I am lost without my phone, that's for sure. On the very odd occasion I have gone out without it, I have been fit to be tied.

I forget things, just as Barbara does, we are two peas in a pod :roll: :lol: :lol:

I hope you managed to get all your shopping done yesterday, it is nice when Sue pops in and keeps us up to date on Suesday.

Hi Kath Those Unicorn Cookies have magical powers, every time you eat one, you need another. Well, the more magic the better I say :lol:

I did think about wallowing in the manatee's pool, but they have outlawed whaling so I will give it a miss :lol: :lol: GreenPeace would have me floated back out to sea. :shock: :lol: :lol:

Now, that chocolate cake, it is looking mighty fine, I will take a piece, only a small piece of course :? :?

I hope Barbara and Toni are feeling better today. Sleek was talking to Pepe about their indiscretion and they have sent a letter to Hogwarts, to Harry Potter, apologising for giggling while peeples were trying to sleep :roll: :roll:
I think they are forgiven and are being sent on a mission to Lytham, to gather some sea mist, for the Wood Nymphs - no idea why, but they love it there and will be off in a flash in the morning. Something to do with the spring equinox in the morning........... :?

We went to the Nursery this morning, with Dad. My neck and back were just miserable, so I didn't go more than a few yards, better to stand still and admire the plants.
Dad bought a couple of evergreens, B bought another Californian Lilac.

We decided to go to the T room in town, as the GC would have been packed to the doors. It was just nice in the T room, not over busy, the coffee (only two this time) was wonderful and scone was equally as enjoyable. Dad had blackcurrant and apple pie, HUGE pies they bake there. More fruit than Carmen Miranda had in her hats :lol: :lol: (Am I showing my age there, I think I might be).

Nipped into Booths, was tempted to some lovely freshly cooked chicken, on the deli, perfect for lunch in a sandwich. Pepe got a whiff as soon as we were in and was howling for his share :lol:

Now just pottering, sorting some washing, taking lots of pain killers.

Just in case Toni cannot resist diving into the chocolate cake that Kath baked, I will quickly bake a spare one :)

Hi to everyone else, in, out and about.

A little salted caramel gateaux
