A very happy Anniversary, to Ann and T, for tomorrow, and for our Sallie and Alun for Sunday, enjoy your special days.
I do hope you are well enough to enjoy next weeks excitement Jean. The Cream tea sounds very yummy, I wish we could join you, perhaps you can smuggle some down the cyber hatch for us, but not if they are very crumbly, coz they will ruin the key boards. LOL

We have had a wonderful day today, our son came over with his four children. It's the first time we have all been together since the Christmas before last. They are wonderful children, and the eldest two, are the ones that at some time will be emigrating with their mum and stepdad to Australia, we shall miss them dreadfully, but it's their futures at stake, and this country does not hold much for them now does it.

Another scorching day today, and apparently there was an electric storm during the early hours, and pouring rain with it, but guess who never heard it, yes me, and there was I thinking I had had a bad nights sleep, but obviously I had slept sounder than I thought LOL

Well my lickle loves, have a great weekend, I shall speak to you again soon. xxx

Sallie like Ann said simple cards will be a good step to take I make lots of flash cards when my stock gets low , its a good way to use odd bits and pieces....

not heard from Marie for sometime I wonder how she is, thanks to Sylvia and Huia for keeping the thread going, hope all is well with you to...

time for elevenses so by for now love Jean xxx

Jean a trapped sciatic neve sounds really painful, sciatica is bad enough that I have. I hope the pain eases for you.

Just watching TV about the earthquake in Italy, we have been to a hill town, didn't realise it was in a potential earthquake area.

Mo pleased to hear the infection has cleared. I suppose they have checked that you don't have a kidney stone? I know that can be very painful. I hope they can soon get you sorted.
Mo shop bought don't matter, it is just good to get a card from you.

Sallie, you will get there, you will be so pleased to finish a card. But don't put yourself under to much pressure, don't aim for a too complicated card.


Sallie Report 25 Aug 2016 17:10

Hi Mo, I'm so pleased to hear that the infection has cleared up, hope that the pain in the kidney you are still suffering from will also soon get better. Sending you love and hugs.

It is very hot and humid here too Mo, I shall be glad when it gets a bit cooler. Just wish I didn't have to have the oven on, but I suppose we have to eat. lol!!

Must go and check on our dinner now, thought I would send you this message while it is cooking.

Love and best <3 <3 <3

Cooee my lovelies.
Good news, the infection has now cleared, but still getting pain from the kidney unfortunately.
Now it's a question of waiting for my appointment.

Sylvia, I didn't have cystitis, or any symptoms, apart from the pain in my side, and feeling like a washed out rag,with flu like symptoms. Never mind, I am feeling so much better now, thank the lord.
I have never drunk so much water in my life before, and need to continue with it now, because of the heat, cor it's been sooo hot here in the south east.
Last night at ten thirty, it was still 27c, so we had another hot sweaty night, with very little sleep.

Oh Jean my lickle love, I am sorry to read that you are suffering, get J to rub you down with the Sporting Life, that should help a bit, it may not cure the problem, but it will make J feel better.LOL
A trapped sciatic nerve is very very painful sweetheart, and I do feel for you, take care darling girl.

Sallie, cheat a little, and get a card from the shop, and pretend you made it. NO that would never do,the home made ones are a one off, and are quite beautiful.
You girls are so clever at what you do, and I am the cheat on this thread in buying shop bought ones, oh if only I had the patience to make them myself.

Well, time to do some dinner, that means putting the oven on for the first time in days,I can't face another salad today.
Take care girls, sending you all hugs.x


Sallie Report 24 Aug 2016 19:36

Jean, oh dear, hope that you will soon feel better. Alun has the same problem as you, he just turned very slightly and felt the pain shoot down his leg. He did it two weeks ago but is still having trouble with it, so the doctor has referred him to the physiotherapist, so he has an appointment on the 2nd. September.

Last Wednesday he had to go for an Echocardiogram just to check that things are going along okay, then if his Consultant is happy with the results he will refer him back to Royal Derby Hospital. All the tests are done there, so he will have to go every so often for an 'Echo'. They have all the high tech testing equipment there, so they do all the tests but they don't do the heart operations, so everyone has to go to either Nottingham City Hospital or Glenfield Hospital in Leicester for the operation.

It has taken me days to try and make one of the cards that I am going to make for Joanne and it still isn't finished,lol!! I am not very motivated at the moment but hope that I can manage to make them by the time I see Joanne next.

Hope you will be able to make cards again very soon, Jean.

Love to everyone. Sallie. xx <3 <3


JustJean Report 24 Aug 2016 18:42

Hello folks, still very warm and sticky,Sallie good to see you are back to your crafting,
I have had to put mine on hold due a trapped sciatic nerve, the pain is awful,I had to get the carers help me stand up , then we had to call for the doctor, he said it could take weeks to get right, but I have the pain killers also a pray from J and it felt a lot better this morning, but I cant walk very far . I so wanted to get out for some fresh air maybe tomorrow.....

Hope Mo is feeling better, but I suppose it all takes time and doing what one is told,

whoever dumped the rubbish has now removed it at least we think it was them,
there was an envelope with a name and address on,

hoping everyone is keeping well

love to all Jean xxx <3 <3 <3


Sallie Report 23 Aug 2016 23:38

Hello ladies,

Mo, I hope that the antibiotics will clear the E.Coli and that you will soon feel a lot better. It was a shame that you and Roly had to miss the family BBQ, but there will be other family get- together's again that you will both be able to go to.

Ann, glad to hear that you got my birthday card and that you enjoyed your day.

I have started to make one card, but it is slow going I'm afraid. I think Joanne (psychologist) was trying to motivate me into making some as she said that she had been looking for some cards but couldn't get what she wanted and had thought about how I made cards. So somehow I have got the job of making her two ladies birthday cards by the time I see her next time.....she is on holiday this week and next, so I have a bit of time to do them. Just hope that I can concentrate enough so that I can do them for her.

Jean, as you know Richard and Christie live in flat and a couple of times in the past they have had problems with non-residents tipping their rubbish in front of the big bins that only the residents should use. I don't know how people have the nerve and cheek to dump their rubbish on other peoples property like they do.

Hope all is well with J and D.

Sylvia, when it is too hot like it's been today I try not to go out in it, unless I have to either go shopping or have to keep an appointment. This hot weather doesn't agree with me at all, but Alun loves it.

Huia, hope everything is okay with you and your family.

Hope to speak to you all again soon. Take care everyone.

Love and best wishes. Sallie. xxx <3 <3 <3

Hi everyone

we've had some very hot weather here, and I have spent most of my time in the north-facing living room, which is much cooler, and therefore haven't been on the 'puter very much.

Mo .......... sorry to hear that you have E. coli in your kidneys. You didn't by any chance have a bout of cystitis fairly recently did you? The most common way to get the kidneys infected is by E.coli in the bladder causing cystitis, and then travelling up into the kidneys.

I have to be very careful as I seem to have a permanent low level of infection that can blow up into cystitis if I get run down. Doctors don't want to keep on giving you antibiotics, neither do I want to keep on taking them because the bacteria soon get resistant ............

I try to keep it all under control by taking cranberry gels every day, and drinking lots of water.

I hate to say this, but tea seems to be bad :-(

Having lots of sugar is also bad :-(

You just have to be very careful washing your hands .................. you shouldn't be THAT infectious!!!!!!!

Take care, and I hope it clears up quickly xxx


JustJean Report 19 Aug 2016 08:14

Mo you poor love, what a ordeal for you, we are praying for good results for you and the latest test.. It must be hard for Roly too all that worrying, life is a b...h at times, but we can only carry on, so I send you lots of hugs and prayers ,stay strong my lovely friend much love Jean xx <3 <3 <3


AnninGlos Report 18 Aug 2016 19:40

Oh Mo I so hope this will soon be over for you. Actually no, I don't remember you telling us the details but it sounds awful for you. Also sounds as if the hospital is responsible for your current condition which beggars belief. I hope the specimen is clear as that will be a step forward. <3

Mo in Kent Report 18 Aug 2016 18:17

Yes Ann, I had very bad pains in my abdomen in the right side, and they discovered a cyst in the bowel, that they removed. Also, the camera broke down during the procedure, and they had to start again, it was a nightmare, don't you remember my telling you all about it, I laughed at the time, thinking that I was the only person I knew, that that kind of thing could happen to.
So wether in taking the device out, and re-inserting it, caused a few problems, I really don't know.
I have got to do another urine test tomorrow, that the receptionist tells me the nurse will check,to see if the blood has cleared or not. If it hasn't then another sample will be sent of to the hospital for analysis.

I hope you are all well, PLEASE lord let you all be. Hugs Mo xxx


AnninGlos Report 16 Aug 2016 20:57

Mo, do you mean you think you actually caught the E Colie in hospital? Awful to be made ill when trying to be made better. But did you have the pain before the procedure? If so there must be something that preceded the E Colie.

Mo in Kent

Mo in Kent Report 16 Aug 2016 14:33

Hello girls.
Ann, the doctor does not know how I have managed to get the E.Coli, she can only guess that it happened following my last colonoscopy, I have had any amount of problems since it was done, and I have to have another one done soon, when I get the appointment through.
The first lot of meds the doctor gave me, did not agree with me, and I have started a new lot today, I am fed up of feeling so poorly, and in so much pain, that I just hope and pray they start to work soon.

Oh for goodness sake Jean, fly tippers are an awful curse. I do hope the council clears it up soon for D.

Sending you all hugs, Mo xxx


JustJean Report 15 Aug 2016 20:35

You sound as though the birthday was a huge success,Ann.nice to have presents that you can use, My earrings were for pierced ears, my ears have closed up , so I got rid of all my earijngs and loads of jewellry too...

glad you liked the card and your T works wonders for my ego ;-) ;-) ;-)
I did some die cutting , bit of a let down though, my little machine isnt cutting as well as it used to, I did notice there are quite a few on sale on e-bay,wonder why :-S :-S
I have used it a lot though, but I love it ,

it was good advice you gave Sallie about doing some simple cards to begin with,
although knowing Sallie it wouldnt be long before she made some of her special ones again :-D :-D

off to watch corrie back later Love Jean xx


AnninGlos Report 15 Aug 2016 12:35

Lovely day here.

thank you Jean, Mo and Sallie for your cards.

Jean, that was a lovely one T was quite fascinated to see how it was made.
I had a very good day. I only had one actual present, a pretty necklace and earing set from a friend. Only problem is I have trouble with earrings these days. One ear was always a problem, when pierced it didn't seem to go through straight. Now, as I rarely wear earings it has semi sealed.

My other presents were money and a voucher. I had over £100 to spend and have so far managed to spend half!!. We went up the M5 to Webbs garden centre at Wychebold as there is a good Hobbycraft there. Spent £40 in there on bits and pieces including some Christmas stuff. Had a walk round the wild flower garden created by the garden centre which is lovely, took a few photos. We then had lunch in the Harvester pub nearby which was very nice. very low key but enjoyable.

Jean, I hope the council manage to trace the person from the envelope. The police won't be interested as it is a civil matter. The council should be though.


JustJean Report 15 Aug 2016 11:18

I do not belive it :-0 :-0 :-0

Some low life has just dumped a load of rubbish in the parking bay at the back of our old house D reckons it was dumped around 12. pm. she sent an e-mail to the council and is waiting for a reply there is an address on an envelope belonging to someone across the road.she rang the police who didnt want to know :-

Hope you are feeling a bit better Mo <3 <3 <3

Ann did you have a lovely birthday, and what prezzies did you get ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-)

AnninGlos Report 12 Aug 2016 17:07

Sallie, you will get there, try setting yourself a project. Choose the next family birthday and tell yourself that you will make a very simple card, nothing complicated. Sometimes just picking out the backing papers and toppers to make a card gets you going. But don't stress about it, it will come when you are ready, maybe when the cold weather returns.

Sylvia, maybe your daughter doesn't want anything but doesn't want to upset you by telling you.

Mo, at least you know what you are fighting now. I have heard of E Coli of course as it has been in the papers recently when there were quite a few cases due, they think, to people eating Rocket leaves but I have not heard of E coli of the kidneys. Did the doctor say how you may have caught it? I hope the antibiotics clears it up and that you soon feel better and that you haven't passed it on. :-) :-) <3
