Much love to Marilyn and Jeniwren. And also BC if she is looking in. I hope you all are in good spirits, and don't let the beggars grind you down. I am thinking of you all.

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.

Afternoon everyone

Sending <3 <3 <3 to Marilyn and Jean

Well done Shelly,

Nolls, Lexi is quite a popular name, a girl in the class I look after at lunchtimes is called Lexi.

Well I 've had a bit of a week, My OH had a heart attack Tuesday morning, rushed to A &E and they sent him to Harefield where he had a stent put in one of his arteries. Came home Thursday. He hadn't been feeling well for a couple of weeks and had an appiontment to see the doctor on Tuesday afternoon. Now he's off work for 4 weeks and no driving till after the checkup at the end of November. He's bored already and it's only been 3 days!



AnninGlos Report 3 Nov 2013 10:49

Nolls, I rather like Lexi, think it must have derived from Alexandra to Alex to Lexi over the years. Neve I assume is from the Irish Nieve. Quite attractive and modern.

Mo I was killing myself laughing at the thought you and your scarf and holding up banks (you didn't did you?) :-D

What a lovely name Jamie-Leigh don't know about Lexi being called both names ... we will see.

Well didn't get to Ripon today it was pouring down but went off to Sanis****s had a look at their clothes got 3 tops and a cardi which is lovely for Lexi actually was lucky to buy some clothes from Adams on line and they send to Aus for free wish I could get everything from there .

Well weather is supposed to be bad again on Sun & Mon so everyone stay warm

noreen :-)

Mo in Kent Report 2 Nov 2013 18:00

Noreen, I like the baby's name, is it just going to be Lexi, or will they use her full name of Lexi-Neve.
One of my grandaughters is Jamie-Leigh, and we always call her that, but her mum and sisters call her Jay or Jamie, such a shame when she has what I consider a lovely name. And no, she is not named after Jamie-Leigh Curtis lol When I asked my daughter if this was the case, you should have seen her face, and the comment
was.....whose she, it's alright it's an age thing, or should I say, my age. ;-) ;-) ;-)
The scarves you were talking about, sound very much like the snoods I used to wear. Mind you, mine were black, and looked like a balaclava when I wore them.
It got to the point I stopped wearing them, when they bought out the law against people wearing crash helmets, and hoodies in certain shops and banks, I did look a bit like a bank robber with it on.
Oh don't talk about christmas Noreen, I am all behind with it. And to top it all, our car has just broken down, so more expense at this time of year is not what we needed really.
I hope you manage to find some presents in Ripon tomorrow love.
Oh if only we could win the lottery,I dont mean a millionaire type win, just a nice win to make christmas easier.

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 Love and hugs for Marilyn and Jeni <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Have a nice night everyone, Mo

Oh Noreen, the new baby is gorgeous, I hope they decide on a name for her soon, it's so sad being little miss no name isn't it.
My friend has to have radiotherapy, before they progress any further. Tomorrow she has to have her mask made, and they have said she will be at the hospital for at least three hours.
Then hopefully they will give her a date for the treatment to start.

Thinking of Marilyn and Jeni, as they progress through their treatment.
