Hello Diane, I don't mind the long distance trains, but I have a train, underground train, another train and a bus to get there. It is a bit of a trek

Hello Diane,

A very happy Easter to you too :-) thank you.

I didn't actually go on the beach - can you imagine getting a wheelchair through wet sand, even dry sand :-D content to just look at it.
I never was a beach person, having been to some of the most famous beaches in the world - mostly overated in my opinion :-)

Would prefer to walk through a forest any day :-)

Good evening you two :-)

Happy Easter to everyone hope you all have a nice weekend <3

Linda you are going to be busy with your traveling over the next 5 month's, you will be sick and tired of trains by september.
When I used to visit my dad once a week before he died I had to get 3 train's there and 3 train's back in one day :-(

Tec it is nice to hear that you were able to get to the beach, I hope you have a nice time with your daughter visiting the Duchess, please wish her and your daughter a Happy Easter from us all :-)

I don't have an easter egg either :-(

I like weird, strange, eccentric, even insane. There are too many normal people around in my opinion :-D

Well, I wouldn't want to say ---but :-D :-D :-D

As you know, I can make a bar of chocolate last for months :-D.
Chocolate bought for me at Christmas, is still around at Easter. I don't know anyone else with this restraint - maybe I am weird :-D

I don't know how you couldn't eat it, it wouldn't last long here :-D

I won't have a conscience about it. Doesn't mean to say I don't appreciate my sister's kindness any less.
I think my daughter will appreciate the egg more than me :-D

Problem solved, you just have to live with your guilty conscience :-D :-D

Tecwyn

Tecwyn Report 19 Apr 2014 21:34

Actually that is a good idea - because I am likely to sit looking at that egg for weeks before opening it, and I do have chocolate here.
It is cheating, but as you say, they will never know. ;-)

I think it is too late to worry about my figure :-( :-(

You could be naughty and give your daughter the egg your sister got for you, they would never know

Tecwyn Report 19 Apr 2014 21:27

I understand that he does his "offerings"on his walks, which are dutifully picked up of course. He will be getting his usual two walks a day.

It is sad that you don't have an egg, but think it would only spoil your figure, then you won't be sad :-)

LindainHerriotCountry

LindainHerriotCountry Report 19 Apr 2014 21:25

At least you can let him out in the back yard and he can't get out. I hope he doesn't leave you any offerings :-(

My daughter may bring me an egg, but I don't have one for her. I have got a lovely big egg from my sister in Doncaster, via my brother today - he was under instruction to get it :-D

It was warm enough if you could find a sheltered spot out of the wind.

Tomorrow we are expecting some rain and cloud.

My neighbour is going to a funeral on the Isle of Wight on Thursday, and will be away for a few days. So the lady who runs the village shop and I are sharing taking care of Milo. He will stay with her at night, and spend the days with me while she is in the shop - I will have to get up early, as she has to get the papers ready in the shop :-D

Will your daughter bring you an egg? I don't have one, it isn't fair

It was chilly here as well, I wore my coat this morning to go to the market

I don't know about make my eyes boggle, some blew my mind :-D

It was strangely quiet on the seafront for a holiday weekend, but it was a bit chilly to hang around for long.
Generally, the area is very busy. All the B&Bs are fully booked right through

Hello Tec, did the ladies make your eyes boggle?
