Nip down to B & Q Ginns and pick up a LARGE kiddies paddling pool for little more than a fiver! OR - Get a bucket out! - depending on how large an area you think they need. :-S

You are quite right - 'our Jonesey' would know !

There was something in the newspaper the other day about having to change all your passwords on all your sites as there has been a problem and all our sites are at risk !!..................... I suddenly said to my husband that Jonesey would know what it was all about as he was very knowledgeable about these things. :-( :-(

Back to your frog spawn then............

Scrape them ALL into a bucket and take them down to the nearest bit of water available...................

Just been out the back and on the decking is HUGE pile of frog spawn

I don't have a pond, I guess they will die without water :-(

Suggestions please

This is where our Jonesey would step in

Good morning all :-)

Thanks Ginns - I will need 3 cups of tea and my bacon butties this morning please as I need to wake up ! - HORRIBLE, horrible dreams last night so every time I woke up I didn't want to go back to sleep ! :-( :-( :-(

Still, these lovely bacon butties will cheer me up and I will have a toasted teacake with lots of butter for my pud :-D :-D

Have a good day everyone <3

Cynthia Report 12 Apr 2014 08:35

Good morning and thank you for the bacon butties Gins......I may have a toasted teacake a bit later - if Dea leaves any of course.... :-D

Spotted Toots popping in - Hi Toots.....lovely to see you ~~~~~~

Hope the little one gets sorted soon Linds and Dea, your grandchildren have obviously inherited a lot of artistic talent from you :-D :-D

Not sure what I am doing today but it's bound to be something which involves shops...........I'd actually quite like to just sit and play genealogy for a while.....maybe later...... :-)


Gins Report 12 Apr 2014 07:50

Mornin all~~~~~~

Breakfast: toasted teacakes, bacon butties and lots of tea and coffee



Linda Report 11 Apr 2014 21:54

Gins I don't think they class it as urgent as her eardrum has already perforated.

I would love to put my Celt head on but she is their babby :-(

Dea glad they both won prizes. Well done <3

Time to kick up a fuss on O's behalf methinks Linds. She's been through enough lately.

Yes Dea....he isn't having a good time at all........and just wants to get back to some sort of normality..... :-(

Another busy day..........time for zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


Dea Report 11 Apr 2014 19:24

Poor little O - they shouldn't make little ones wait that long for an appointment but unfortunately that is the way of it !!! :-(

I thought you only had the one son Cynths - he 'is' having a bad time of it isn't he?

I have just had a phone call from grand-daughter. You may remember that we were recently making Easter Hats for school.

Well, they wore them today and both of them won 2nd prize in their classes - they were really pleased! :-D :-D :-D

Linds....get your Celt head on and make that sooner, that's disgusting

She's a babby


Linda Report 11 Apr 2014 18:03

Toots I had one of those lovely cupcakes with my coffee. Yummy!

Nice to see you back here <3


Linda Report 11 Apr 2014 18:01

Poor little O has more antibiotics.

Dr said her tonsils were very large and red so are treating it as tonsillitis now.

Her ENT appointment is for the middle of May.


Cynthia Report 11 Apr 2014 18:00

Yes Dea, same son....only got one of each :-D

The knee prob came entirely out of the blue..... :-0

Another busy day and a visitor tonight...............................zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


Dea Report 11 Apr 2014 17:35

Is he the same son who had the Op on his knee Cynths? - Poor thing - hope is gets something to help.

Dea Xxx


Gins Report 11 Apr 2014 17:17 numpty!

You need to start posting on the dark side

Cyns, hope your son gets some relief soon


Dea Report 11 Apr 2014 15:17

How lovely to see you Toots and thank you SO much for the cupcakes <3

I was feeling a little peckish - I had saved a bacon buttie from breakfast but a 'greedy person' has eaten it :-0 :-( :-(

I very rarely go over to t'other side as I find it scarey over there. I only go when I am told I have to look at something and then I am in and out in a flash :-D

Hope you are all having a good day .

See you later,

Dea Xxx

P.S. - I haven't eaten them all so there are plenty left for the rest of you ;-) :-D :-D

Dea Xxx

Dropping by to leave cupcakes for afternoon tea and to say hi to Dea as I've not seen her on t'other side for yonks.

Linda I learned the hard way and I never use friends and family or pay cash in hand. Everything goes through the books.

Cyns sorry to hear about your son and hope they get some pain relief sorted soon.


Linda Report 11 Apr 2014 12:54

Gins - Think it is safe to say we will not be using him again :-)

Cynthia - Hope your son gets some pain relief soon been there so I know how painful it is.

Dea I found a bacon buttie that you missed - yummy :-D


Cynthia Report 11 Apr 2014 08:43

Good morning and thank you Gins......I may have a bit of everything this morning :-D

Dea, I think the other place is pulling people get my drift??? Please pluck up courage and join in <3

Son is, hopefully, to have an op on his back to fuse two discs together. When this will be, we don't know - there is a waiting list. sigh........

As for the pain, the consultant will have a word with the GP about some alternative medication. It's a sciatic type pain - from the back, through the hip and down the leg. I hate to see him hobbling around because he is normally such an active guy. :-( Hey ho.....on we go :-D

I am hoping to get a brief walk with OH in this morning. This week has been manic and I seem to have been here, there and everywhere. Roll on normality!

Quick good Dea...... ;-)


Dea Report 11 Apr 2014 08:02

Thank you Ginns - these bacon butties are REALLY Yuummmy ! <3 :-D :-D
