Hello ladies,
Huia, I am sorry you are not up to par, as has been said before, perhaps you do need to see the doctor, to get yourself checked over as a precaution.
You normally get yourself out and about most days, this is really not like you at all my love, so please see your doctor.

Ann, we didn't venture to the shops today, it has been ferereezing and blowing a gale.
We had Lilly today, and had to keep her entertained in the house. Fortunately for us, our daughter came over with our great grandaughter, and that kept her amused for a couple of hours.

Roly is still suffering, he has been fine most of today, but now he's feeling under the weather again, oh well, more paracetamol and honey and hot lemon I suppose.
Got my nurses outfit on, and the maids apron on top of it, we wives have to multi task don't we LOL

Well I will say bye bye for now ladies, hugs to you all, Mo x

Huia, it sounds to me as though you should have a blood test at the doctors, I wonder if you are anaemic? It is not normal for you to be so tired, you normally seem to have more energy than most of us?

It is bitterly cold here today, went to Cheltenham and luckily missed the coupld of showers we had when in shops/restaurant. crowded in there today. Mostly we had blue sky and sun. Ham egg and chips and onion rings for lunch!!! :-)

Huia, this doesnt sound like you, sleeping during the day, are you worried or stressed, maybe you need a pick me up, perhaps the strain of worryingabout Phil is getting to you .... I do hope you soon feel better , if not see the doctor....... take care

Hello girls. I am still in the land of the living, but still get so tired at times. Last night I went to bed just after 11 and fell asleep without the aid of a sleeping pill, but I woke up about 3 and a half hours later and couldn't get back to sleep so got up and took half a pill and read a couple of chapters of a book before going back to bed at about 4.30. I didn't wake up until just before 11 this morning! After a late breakfast I was feeling tired again so at 12.30 I lay down on the settee and slept for another 2 hours. :-0 I do wish I could get back to 'normal' sleep patterns. If I go out during the day I seem to survive alright without a sleep, don't even feel sleepy. I have been going to the shop on a Thurs afternoon as one of our ladies usually goes in then but she has had an op and will be out of circulation for 6 weeks. The shop will be shut next Thurs though for Waitangi Day.

Hello my little darlins, it's good old Mo here, back to pester the life out of you all. lol
I think I shall have to invest in a pair of fishermens waders, if this wind and rain carries on the way it is.
The river Yalding nr Maidstone is on flood alert again tonight. The poor people are having a nightmare time of it.
One household had their white goods ruined during the last flood, and had been and ordered new, after the insurance company took their time settling the claim, and guess what, it is due to be delivered today, just in time for more flooding to occur tonight.
I think if I lived that close, I would be tempted to move upstairs into the bedrooms, and have all the white goods installed up there. lol
We went to pick our Lilly up from nursery today, as mummy is not to good during this pregnancy.
I picked her coat up, and she picked up, what I presumed was her back pack, a lovely mimmie mouse one.
When we got her home, her mummy said whose is that bag, oh oh, naughty little minx had told me it was hers, and I had taken it home with her.
Some poor child will be so upset, to find that their back pack has gone missing. Mummy will take it back on Monday, thank goodness.
I wouldn't mind, but the bag was on lilly's coat peg,and I naturally assumed it was hers....stupid me for believing the little fibber, she must have wanted it so badly. lol
She is always getting bought new things by her other Nanny and aunts, so no wonder this old girl got confused. :-S :-S :-S

Well I will say goodnight god bless, from a wet windy soggy Kent. Hugs to you all, Mo xxx

Hi Jean, good to see you on here, hope all is sorted out for you by now. Do the cards look nice made with the Tonic die? I can't wait to use the new one I've got, it shouldn't be too long now.

Alun has had a trip to the A&E at Nottingham this afternoon. Our friend's daughter had an appointment at the optician today, and they told her that she was bleeding behind the eye and that she had to go straight to the University Hospital to A&E, with a letter to give to them. S was frightened that it was something serious and got herself into a bit of a panic.

After the three of them spending 4hrs there, as they had to go down to the eye clinic, where she had to have two lots of drops put in her eyes at different times, she was told that it was something that was common and that some people don't even know that they got it....trouble is she couldn't remember what it was called, except that it was a short lettered name and that she will have to take medication for it. They are also sending her an appointment for a CT scan for about two weeks time.

While Alun was at the hospital, J and M took me for a run to Dunelm., they wanted to look for something they needed. I only had a look at the craft stuff, as usual, but there was nothing special there.
I was going to buy the new Creatitiviy magazine, but with it now being £4.99 I felt that I would be wasting my money. I know that they had two free gifts in it and some free paper, but it wasn't what I would use.

Mo, hope you are feeling much better now. We miss you on this thread.

Ann, I think I read on one of the other threads that you have been busy making cards.

Sylvia, hope that things are back to normal now for you and OH.

Marie, hope that all is going well for you and your family. How is your grandson settling down in Melbourne.....hope all is going well for him.

Huia, hope you are alright, I expect you are busy in the shop.

Speak to you all soon.

Hi Mo, so glad that the results from the doctors were all okay. Hope all goes well with the lung capacity next month and it will rule emhysema out for you. Hope Roly will feel a lot better soon too.

Sylvia, your SiL memorial service sounds really good, I'm sure that there must have been lots of smiles as well as tears, from family and friends. It was nice that she was so well known, loved and respected by so may people.

Hope that your daughter is improving each day and that she will feel better before too long, and that she will take things easy for as long has she has to. So sorry to hear about the problems that they have, but hopefully with talking things out they will be able to sort it all out.

How is ' little man' doing? I expect you seen a difference in him since he was last staying with you and OH. I bet he loved having you both there with him,

I also that your leg will completely heal soon for you.

Ann, how are you since you are home. I bet you have been busy getting the washing sorted, not the best of weather for that job though, I'm afraid.

I had to go and get my hearing aids sorted out today, I've had problems with them both since before Christmas. but the left one went completely nearly four weeks ago. Anyway they are both back to normal again and it's lovely to be able to hear everyone and everything clearly again.
Only problem was, that with it being a week before Christmas when I rang for an appointment, the earliest I could get one was today 30th January.

While I was there she was telling me that an old gentleman had gone for four o clock for his appointment and it was for two o clock, he had taken 14.00 hrs as four o clock, she said that sometimes, people tend to mix the times up.

Well I hope Jean, Huia and Marie are all okay.

Take care everyone.

Will speak to you all soon

Hello girls.
Sylvia, I am so pleased that the memorial service went well. It sounds like your S.I.L was a lady who was liked and respected all round.
Sorry to hear that things between daughter and S.I.L are a bit awkward at the moment, but they will sort things out eventually I feel sure. Most marriages go through difficult moments, and I am a firm believer in talking things through.
But it will be hard for your daughter at the moment, just recovering from her operation.
How was little man doing? I bet you both noticed a big difference in him .

Well, my results at the doctors were very good. My chest and lungs are still clear, but he want me to have a lung capacity test done next month, to rule our emphascaemia (sp) There is little or nothing we can do to prevent the virus coming back, as it's an air borne germ, and apart from staying at home 24/7 nobody is immune to it.
Roly is fine one minute, then suffering the next. So I am stuffing him full of paracetamol, and honey and hot lemon, to keep his temperature down, and to soothe his sore throat.
Sore throat or not, he can still moan and groan lol bless him.
Must go now girls, I have to get ready for darts. Take care one and all, hugs Mo xxx

Hi Mo, and everyone

sorry to hear you are still sick Mo, and hope you are soon better .................. but do hope you are not being given antibiotics for a viral infection! They don't work for viruses!

Sallie ..... it's good to see that you are getting out a little bit more as your legt improves.

and nice to see Jean and Marie posting.

The spot on my leg is being very slow to heal ........ but then, the doc warned me that it would take several weeks.

Thank you for all your good wishes.

The Memorial for my sis-i-l was amazing!

She had organised it all, with the emphasis being on the family .............. from the Bishop being restricted to doing the Opening and Closing prayers, to readings by 4 people (OH and 3 vicars from elsewhere in the Diocese), to happy hymns and clapping songs, to requesting that her grandchildren dance in the aisle to the music!

It was a happy occasion, with a few tears shed here and there.

We thought there might have been as many as 300 people there ............ they were standing 2 and 3 deep along the side aisles, extra chairs placed along side each row down the main aisle, and an overflow in the Hall. Over 200 had signed the guest book that had been set out, and we know that many people had attended but not signed (including the family %3A-%29 )

Sitting on one of the extra chairs across the aisle from me was the Roman Catholic minister, and the United Church minister was somewhere else in the congregation. We think the Lutheran minister was also there!

Mind you ................. sis-i-l was well known in the little town of about 5000 people, and had touched many people.

She first went to live there in 1970, taught in the Middle School and then in the High School, she and her husband were heavily involved in the ski hill organisation and in search and rescue, then was minister of the only Anglican Church since 2005.

The Bishop returned to the Parish this past Sunday for a special Eucharist Service with Communion.

We got back very late on Monday night from our daughter's ......... we had 8 days there

Daughter had had abdominal surgery, but was released from the hospital the day after we arrived, about 6 days after the surgery, still with staples in, under orders not to lift ANYTHING for 2 weeks, then nothing over 5 lbs for another 4 weeks.

It was amazing to see how well she was walking though!

There are also some marital problems that we didn't know about .......... but they are working on those, and we are hoping all will work out for them.

Thank you again for all your good wishes.



Sallie Report 29 Jan 2014 21:09

Mo, hope all went well at the doctors for you today, and that you don't need any more antibiotics. How is Roly today? I hope he is feeling at least a bit better today

Jean, where are you? I hope that you are alright.

Sylvia, I see that you are back from your daughter's........I hope that all will turn out right for them.

Marie, how are you today? I hope that you are a bit better and not suffering too much pain. I didn't realise how a torn ligament/ ligaments could be so painful and can take so many weeks to heal.

Ann, wondered where you had got to. Pleased that you enjoyed your week in the Lake District, despite the rain, wind and cold and also a small amount of snow.

Huia, hope you are alright and not feeling so down as you have been recently. Take care of yourself.

Must go now, so will chat to you all again tomorrow.

Love and best wishes.


Sallie Report 28 Jan 2014 17:50

Mo, so pleased to see you back and to know that you feel a lot's best that you see your doctor tomorrow, so that he can check the chest problems you had have completely cleared up.

It will make a nice change for you and Roly to have a weeks holiday at Great Yarmouth and the sea air will do you both good.

I am now able to walk small distances without using a stick so things are improving each day, thank goodness. I hope Marie is getting a bit better each day too.

We are going to the Range, so that I can see if they have any new card making
stuff there yet. I'm sick of being in the house so I will be glad of the run out.

Speak to you all later on.

Hello my lovelies, it's little old me, yes that strange woman called Mo.
Thank goodness I am feeling a lot better now, so keep your fingers crossed for me.
The only problem now, is that Roly is feeling like poo, and when I said I would let him have my appointment with the doctor tomorrow, you can guess what his reply was, a big fat no I will be o.k.
Why are men so stubborn, no don't answer that.
I have to see the doctor for my results, but the recptionist said that the results were good, but I need to know why this viral thing keeps coming back, and if there is anything I can do to prevent it.

Sorry to hear that two of our dear friends are suffering with ligament strains, and other pains in their bodies. Get well soon my lovelies.

I do wish our weather would hurry up and turn for the better, perhaps then we would feel more cheerful.
We have booked a week away, near Great Yarmouth in May. I am fed up of looking at the same four walls, and am praying that the snow that has been threatened doesn't wait till May to fall down on us.

Well my dears, I will say cheerio for now, love and hugs to you all. Mo xxx


Sallie Report 27 Jan 2014 15:39

Hi Marie, you have my sympathy, torn ligaments are very painful, so try and rest as much as you can, although I know that that isn't always easy to do. Like you I have found taking the painkillers also made me feel sick and shaky, so now the pain has eased quite a bit I have cut down on the dosage.

My leg is slowly getting better, thank you, although I am able to walk small distances with the help of a stick there are some things I'm not able to do, like walking upstairs and around the bigger supermarkets. It shouldn't be too long now, with it improving a bit each day.

Mo. thinking of you and hoping and praying that you are feeling a good bit better by now. Miss seeing you on here. Sending you love and lots of hugs. <3 <3 <3 <3

Jean, hope all is well with you and your family today. I bet you are busy making some more cards.

Sylvia, I hope there is good news about your daughter and that she is getting better.

Hope your grandson is alright, I'm sure you are enjoying seeing and being with him,
has you don't see him very often. Also hoping that both you and OH are keeping well. Thinking about you all.

Huia,thinking about both you and Phil and hoping that things are not too bad for you at the moment.

Well I must go as Alun will be home shortly. Speak to you all later.

Yes Jean, I am wondering how our Mo is too, it is worrying not seeing her on here I

My leg is slowly improving thank you, but not quick enough for!! Alun took me over to our friends house today so that I could use her shower again. Trouble is, our shower is over the bath so I can't yet use my left leg to get into it, so have used J's shower as it's a walk in one, oh it's lovely.

Your weather sounds very much like ours here today, it's lousy. I keep wondering when we will have snow, ice and freezing weather, Jean. We will probably get it into the spring like we did last year.

Thanks for your pics Jean, love the cards, they are beautiful. I'll be in touch with you.

I hope that Huia, Ann, Sylvia, Marie and Joyce and their families are all alright.

Sending lots of get well wishes to everyone who are poorly.

Hi Jean, thanks for the pm, I also sent you one back. Just to let you know that the Tonic dies I have sent for are called layering dies, sent for the off CraftsU Love, under What's New.

Oh Jean, I love broth, although it's a very long time since I made it. Got me fancying some now. I will have to put the ingredients on the shopping list.

I am going to have a cuppa now, so will speak to you later.
