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

Huia Report 23 May 2014 22:40

It was only the one finger which was cut rather deeply, took a slice off the bone and 40% of the tendon. I am not sure if the tendon will regrow. It is actually far from painful, just an occasional ache, unless I hit it on the light stalk on the steering wheel when driving, and then I say ouch, but it is not really that bad.

Yes, I had a plastic bag put on when I had a shower, but am just making do with a stand-up wash at the basin, of the armpits etc, and get my hair washed in town. I decided I couldn't do the wiping of my backside with my left hand so I put a plastic bag on my right hand. It is still not easy but if I feel I have not done it properly I will sit in a plastic bowl of warm water and wiggle my backside. :-D I hope I don't get RRd for talking dirty. :-0

Oh poor you Yvonne. Nothing more boring than being bored!

And poor Huia. That could have been nasty. Wishing you well.

When I broke my arm as a kid, I had my arm wrapped in a plastic bag so that I could sit in the bath. No showers then!

My OH also broke his arm as a kid, he went over the handlebars of his bike.

Hoping every else is well. Are you all missing the showers?

The rain was so heavy this afternoon, we could not see to the other side of the road.



Yvonne Report 22 May 2014 13:03

Hi everyone

Hope you are all well,

Maddie I've had a new cast put on, this one doesn't itch like the first one!

I'm soooo bored!!!!

Huia has hurt herself, she nearly chopped off her fingers on her right hand and has been all bandaged up, she sent me a message on FB which made me laugh, she asked how do I manage to wipe me bum lol, That was the first thing I said to my OH after i had my cast put on, ha ha

<3 to all

The one arm bandit

Thank you for the cuppa Shelley, but I think I may want something stronger!

A very naice supermarket is selling cut price Pimms, so I bought a bottle this morning. It is years since I drunk this, hope I still like it!

I hope you have plenty of co-ordinating outfits Yvonne, you dont want to clash with your new cast.

I broke my arm when I was eleven, in the middle of Summer, boy did it itch! I used to get one of my Mum's knitting needles, and shove it down the side of the cast to scratch myself.

Not recommended I might add.

No more rants, I promise. I am trying to be calm and collected now. Not easy for someone who is a born worrier!

Have a good weekend all.

Oooh Maddie fancy calling K a bleeder, poor little sausage, you could have chosen a better turn of a pain in the bum, but then he aint got piles has he, so you could be right in your terminology. lol
The way they did K's operation, sounds fine, but Flo is pooing herself, bless her.
She saw the man who had had the same operation done as she is about to undergo, ten years ago. She couldn't believe he had three prothesasis (sp) and one actually had hair up it, she laughed and said she didn't want one like that, she reckons she gets enough hairs on her chin, let alone having them coming out of her nose as well.
Oooh it's been another lovely day again, please lord let it stay that way, so we can enjoy ourselves whilst away, without having to wear wellies and use umbrella's all the time.

Take care one and all. Mo


MotownGal Report 13 May 2014 17:35

Yes quite right ladies, onwards and upwards.

K. went to the leading teaching hospital in London, and had some new type of surgery, whereby they use like a mandolin and take slithers of skin and take them straight to the microscope, then if it is clear, they stitch you up. If not, they take a bit more! They said his bloodflow was very good. I just call him a Bleeder!

Hope everyone is well. Love to Jeni and BC.

Nuff, said. No more moaning!

:-D :-D :-D

Oh my goodness Jeni, you have been a busy bee. By the way, my windows need cleaning inside again.....what time shall I expect you lol
Oooh that naughty horse, nibbling away at your baskets like that, you feed them loads, and he is just a greedy boy.

Maddie, no wonder you were at sixes and sevens last year, with the worry of K,and your friends to worry about.
K was very brave, and it sounds like he was more concerned about the other ladies waiting to be seen.
Did he have to go to East Grinstead for his operation? Florence can't have anymore radiotherapy, and it's to far gone for chemo, so the operation is the last ditch effort for her.
Don't feel ashamed at unburdening yourself on here, thats what we cyber friends are for.

Only a few days left before we go away, I do hope the good weather they have forecast, comes about.
Not packed yet, but the spare bedroom looks like a jumble sale, with clothes everywhere. lol

Bye for now, take care, Mo

Morning all friendlies, hope you have sunshine today.

Sallie I do hope your daughter is feeling a little better now, must be worrying for you at the moment .

BC, take care love and take things easy if you can <3 <3

Got lots of work done at the stables over the weekend, cleaned all the windows, horses can now see out lol. Planted up some hanging baskets to hang outside the stables just to make the place look nice, caught one of the horses eating the flowers out of the one outside her door, needless to say she is the one always up to mischief. She doesn't have a basket now lol

Shelly the dolls house looks beautiful, you are certainly a clever lady.

Take care and stay safe everyone, enjoy your day

Sallie Report 12 May 2014 22:19

Yvonne, that you for your get well wishes for Jennie. Although, the Consultant she is under thinks that that she has a narrowing of a small part of the colon now and might have to have an operation to remove that part. Depending on how bad it is, she might have to have a bag, but hopefully it will be reversible., so we now have to wait and see.

Hope that your wrist is less painful now, and that you are managing to do some small things at least.

Oh Mo, I am so very sorry to hear about Flo, I hope and pray that they will be able to do something for her. Please give her my very best wishes, and tell her that I am thinking about her.

Shelley, hope that you and your family are all okay.

Jeni, also hope that you and your family are all alright.

Maddie, good news about your friend, as Mo said, onwards and upwards now.

Well must go, will chat again soon.

Take care everyone.



MotownGal Report 12 May 2014 20:22

Evening everyone.

Sorry about the rant, I am ashamed of myself for burdening you all with it.

Mo, I can sympathise with your friend and her skin cancer. K. had to go under the knife late last year to have some of his nose cut out. He looked as if her had gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson. Luckily we both looked after his nose really well, changing dressings and keeping it clean etc. and the scar is now healing really well. He said at the time he did not care for himself, but there were a few ladies in there, and they were all in tears waiting to be seen.

I see I had hiccups last time I posted, this has been rectified.

Pickled onions I think!

:-D :-D :-D

Thanks Yvonne, your E.Mail with your change of addy received, and noted.

Maddie, come on girl, scream and shout, we can't hear you, but we can sympathise with you my love.
Good news about your friend sweetheart, onwards and upwards for her now.
I do know how you feel about the rotten B@'s out there who do nasty evil things, and yet have good health, when the very nicest of people have to suffer. There seems no justice in this world.

My dear friend Flo, has had bad news re her cancer in her nose. The darned thing is back, and now they are talking of removing, part if not all of her nose.
She has to go up to East Grinstead hospital in a couple of weeks, to see what they intend to do for her.
Bles her, she is heart broken, and may I add, so am I. There is no way, she deserves this to be happening to her.
Enough Enough, thats my rant over, sorry peeps.

Take care everyone. Mo xxx

hello everyone

sending hugs to your daughter, sallie, hope she is feeling better soon and hugs to your friends too maddie

well done on your dolls' house shelly

i've recently changed my email so i will have to send my new one to you

wrist is still sore but oh and son are looking after me



MotownGal Report 11 May 2014 16:15

Afternoon All.

Some good news, my friend is no longer on Intensive Care, but on High Dependancy so that looks good for her. I am so pleased, I have known her a long time, we have children of a similar age. We have laughed a lot together, cried and dished the dirt. She is lovely, and the outcome looks good.

However, I saw another friend's husband yesterday, and she is very ill indeed. She is kind, gentle and lovely. So unfair.

It seems the nicer you are, the worst happens to. Be an evil so and so, and you escape unscathed!

Sorry, but Mo did say I could come on here and have a rant. It makes a change from bawling my eyes out. I have permanently piggy eyes from crying.

Sorry........................going now.


Sallie Report 10 May 2014 01:04

Hello to all the friendlies,

Shelley, thanks for emailing me the photos of your dolls house, it looks lovely. What are you planning to do next?

Yvonne, sorry to hear about your fall downstairs.....oh dear it could have been a lot worse than a broken wrist, although that is bad enough. Hope that it will soon heal.

Elizabeth thank you, also hope that you and your family will have a good and peaceful weekend too.

Jeni, nice to hear from you. Hope you managed to get some work done around the
stables today.

My daughter Jennie is in hospital, her husband had to take her to A&E last night, they kept her in as she has a few problems. She has suffered with Crohn's Disease over the last ten years....... at the moment she is suffering a ' flare up ' that happens from time to has to have antibiotics and steroids when this happens.

Hope that all the other friendlies are alright.

Take care everyone.

Love, Sallie.xx
