Hope everyone else is ok, and keeping well and warm. I got soaked today, I was looking for a posh top for Tuesday, and actually managed to find one! There never has been such times!!!!!

Much love to all. I don't pop in much these days, but I do look in to see how you are all getting along.

Take care

Thanks for the offer of helping me doing the painting Shelly, I'm not that far away from you hun, but the major job is done now, and I will take my time doing the kitchen, next week sounds good to me.
We have got Lilly tomorrow, I just hope it isn't raining so I can get her out and about, and wear her out a bit. She's got so much energy, I could do with a bucket full by the time she goes home.
Have a great fireworks party Shelly, dont get to pickled love.

Hello lovelies,
It's so good to hear from you Marilyn honey. You know what colour wig you should get don't you, blonde, the same as you have always been, it suits you being that shade. A blonde bob, oooeee, luvverly.
I hope Pete is wearing the nurses uniform I sent down the cyber hatch for him, bless him, he is a godsend isn't he love him.

I am cream crackered, over the last two days, we have painted the living room and dining room.
They are looking lovely and clean now, not that they were really dirty before, but a nice fresh coat of paint brightens things up no end.
The next room on the agenda is the kitchen, we have got the paint, but I think we need a couple of days to recouperate first.
It didn't take us so long to do when we were younger, and it didn't tire us out as much as it does now.
It was a question of paint a wall, have a cuppa and biscuit, then paint another wall, no wonder it took us so long with all the cuppas we had. lol

Gotta go now, speak to you soon.
<3 <3 <3 <3 Marilyn, Jeni, BC, stay strong ((((((HUGS))))) <3 <3 <3 <3

Hello Hello,
Yvonne, so sorry to hear about your hubby. It's amazing what the specialists can do these days.
Hubby is bound to be bored, he's used to being active, and having to slow down takes a bit of time to accept.
It's surprising how we go into overdrive when things like this happen, and thank god we cope.

Hi there BC, good to see you, come back some time soon.

Noreen, the only way I could hold a bank up, is if I went on a body building course, I just aint strong enough. LOL
I am I right in thinking that Sain**ry's have got a sale on, on their TU clothing?
I used to like buying things from Mothercare, but they closed most of their stores locally, and I don't buy things on line, so I dip out.
In fact our local Ad*ms has closed down as well, so we are a bit limited for baby clothing shops.

Well I must go, speak to you tomorrow.
