Hello to all the friendlies,

Mo. good to know that the baby is doing well...... I bet her big sister is helping to look after her. Bless them both!

Nice to see you post Stephen, hope that all is okay with you and yours.

Jeni, hope they do find a brain in there and that everything is alright with it.
Good luck, will be thinking about you.

Yvonne, not long to go now, I bet you will be glad to have your cast off, and to get back to work again.. Take care.

Hello, to Foggy, hope that you are well.

Ooooh coooeee, welcome back Stephen, we sure have missed your humour on here.
How are things with you and yours? I do hope everyone is hale and hearty up your end of the country.

Foggy, it's good to hear from you as well my friend. It seems ages since we have heard from yourself and Stephen.
Your photo is as I remember you, from 2011 when we had the meet up in Victoria, it doesn't seem possible that it was three years ago.

Hello Elizabeth, thank you for popping in to see us,please come back soon.

Our little one is now one week old, and she is thriving, enjoying her food, and doing all the normal baby things.
Both children had our son up and awake at 4.00a.m this morning, thank goodness he is still on leave from work.

We are enjoying wall to wall sunshine today, wonderful.

Take care one and all. Mo

Ooops what happened yesterday, I thought I had put me three penneth in, but it's gorn missing somehow. Never mind, coooeee it's little ol me.

Shelly love, it's the other Jeans birthday love, not our Jeni Wren, hers has been and gone already.
I can't believe little legs is nearly five, where the heck does the time go. Don't they come out with some funny things at that age, he really had you going with the spider escapade, bless him.

At long last, our new baby has been given a name...Ava Rose. When they said they wanted to call her Willow, I was taken aback, imagining them out looking for her and calling out, (by what would by then have become her nick name) " Have you seen our Willy" especially if it had been my son looking for her,it wouldn't have been so bad if she had been a he, but she's not, and deserved what I call a proper name for a girl.

It's been a beautiful day today, but the forecast is not good for tomorrow, so out will come the umbrella again. boo hoo.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Hope your sister's staffie is ok.

Hi there friendlies,
I am still around, but have not been on here for a while.

Great news, our new grandughter was born lst night, at 11.20 weighing in at 7lb 4oz
Bless her she is little miss no name at the moment,they cannot decide what to call her.
Lilly is being very good with her at the moment, but time will tell.
When we visited them today, we made a big fuss over Lilly, to ensure she didn't feel left out of things.
Having bought the baby a present, we got one for her as well, and she was as pleased as punch.
When I asked her if I could hold her baby sister for a minute, she said no the first time, so I waited till she was ready to take a back seat for a little while.

Two weeks Saturday is our daughters wedding day. I have been asked to read a poem out at the service, one that our daughter and future son in law have chosen.
Oh if only I could make one up myself, I would feel better about it, as the one they have chosen is not to my taste, and sounds far to slushy, and false, but I don't want to upset the apple cart by suggesting it.

I am not looking forwards to the colonoscopy on the 30th of the month though, but will face it on the day, and push it to the back of my mind for the time being.

Jeni, what end of your body did they scan, if it was the lower half, they wont find the brain there my love. LOL
They searched all over Roly's body before they found his, and found out that he speak through his BTM most of the time.
You must send us a photo of you with your short hair.

Shelly, as you can see, I am still around making a nuisance of myself. Have you taken on doing anymore make overs ?
Anymore grandchildren on the way yet hun. How old is little legs now, he must be coming up to school age soon. Our Lilly is three and a half now, so little legs must be at least four by now.

Well I will say night night all, take care. Mo

Morning everyone hope you all had a good weekend. :-) :-) :-)

(_)?(_)?(_)?(_)?(_)?(_)? coffee or tea, help yourself.

We have a sunny day here at the moment so I was out riding at 6,
will probably fall asleep before long :-D

Went for a brain scan yesterday (yes, Sunday) our local
hospital is working 7 days a week to cut the waiting lists.
Don't know if they found a brain in there, have to wait
for results.

After hospital I went into Stockport and had all my hair cut off,
it was just below my waist and I was fed up of a pony tail so
I now have short, grey hair, surprising how different I feel,
and it doesn't take so long to do it when I get up, just a quick
flick through with a brush.

Shelly have you found a puppy yet, I love Pomeranians they look
like cuddley white teddy bears.

<3 <3 to BC, take care love.

Well must get some work done, mucking out not finished as
I stopped for a coffee :-(

Take care everyone and stay safexxxx

Hello to all our friendlies, hope you all had a good bank holiday weekend,
:-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

Yvonne I hope your wrist is less painful now, don't use it too much until it
is mended properly. I bet Ami is missing you. <3

We had a very busy weekend, can never understand why people think
'oh, it's bank holiday we will go riding' sometimes they have never even sat on a horse but book a ride and expect to go out on their own for an hour, then wonder why they don't really know what they are doing, and sometimes fall off. :-( :-(

Oh well, time to go and settle the horses down for the night.

Take care and stay safe. xxxx

BC hope you are ok love <3 <3

Hi everyone

Jean Sorry to hear about you losing your mare, hope you find a new mum soon

Huia glad you are managing, I can't drive and my OH has been washing my hair. I bought a waterproof sleeve from the chemist so that I can have a shower or bath. OH and son have been looking after Ami, mucking out etc and friends at the yard have been putting her in the field in the mornings.

<3 to all


Jeniwren Report 24 May 2014 12:48

as usual it is going to be a wet one, ugh!!

Huia I do hope your hand is healing and isn't too painful. <3

Mo I hope you had a great holiday and the weather was kind to you. <3

Had a new foal born last night, unfortunately we lost her Mum this morning
so it is 2 hourly bottle feeds until a foster mare can be located.

Yvonne I hope your wrist is healing, sorry you are feeling bored, go sit and
talk to Ami, sure she would love the company.

BC <3 keep your chin up love, hope you are ok.

Take care and stay safe everyone and enjoy the weekend
as much as you can xx
