Good Evening Everyone :-) :-) <3

It was pleasant here this morning. But became overcast this afternoon with light rain. It is supposed to be a little bit better tomorrow.
I haven't been brilliantly well the last few days-so I haven't done much. Just overtired I think.

Grandson is being messed about a bit with the GF. So he ended up going out for the day with Granddaughter 1 and his friend yesterday. They came in about 8.40 last night, just as I had decided to settle down and watch a film. They wanted me to take them to get food as they hadn't managed to buy dinner out!
He's over his mother's this evening to play Wii with Granddaughter 4, who at nearly 6 can beat him!:-D :-D

I watched The Scarlets play the Cardiff Blues this afternoon. I don't enjoy watching the clubs as much as watching Wales, as players on the both sides play in my beloved Wales Team! I prefer watching when they play teams from away!

:-)Hi Tec
I'm glad that you have had a good weekend and have managed to have a potter in your garden.
I'm so sorry about the situation with your wife. It was good that you were able to visit unexpectedly, and that the visit ended well.
Milo seems like a blessing to you! He sounds like he's lovely company for you! :-)

:-)Shaun- hope you are doing ok and resting with your legs up!

Hi ~~~~~~~~~~Everyone
Love Jem <3

that's so sad Tec, but I often wonder if people in her condition are really unhappy or are they living in the past - you never can work it out - it's the loved one's who are suffering though isn't - if you could be sure your loved one was not suffering then you can live with it - in the months before my Mum died she talked absolute rubbish telling me she'd done things that day that I knew she couldn't possibly have done, but I just went along with it and humoured her and she was fine - she believed it and that was fine by me

There was a cold wind here AnnC, and only light rain when it did arrive. Sorry that you had such awful weather.

I expect my OH will be different each time I visit. She was fine the other day. Today she asked how her Nain and Taid are? They both died in the 60s. :-0


AnnCardiff Report 20 Apr 2014 21:47

you were lucky to do some planting Tec - we've had horrendous weather here in Cardiff - not only lshing rain but thunder and lightning thrown in as well, plus wind and freezing cold :-(

lovely you were able to see your OH - must have been a bit upsetting all round but glad things turned out OK in the end

Take care Tec

Hello Everyone, :-)

Happy Easter to everyone - hope you are enjoying the weekend.

Been a disappointing day here weather wise, but the rain didn't arrive till mid afternoon.
My daughter and SIL made a surprise visit, I wasn't expecting them as she was only here on Wednesday to take me to Shrewsbury. Anyway, after lunch we all went to visit my OH in the nursing home.
She was quite tearful when we arrived, and begged to go home, which was rather upsetting, but we soon cheered her up, and it ended up a pleasant visit. I wasn't expecting to see her this weekend, not having anyone to take me, so it was a nice surprise all round.
Returning home, my SIL washed the yellow paving stones in the front garden with the pressure washer, to remove all the grime and algae after the winter. Now everything looks bright and beautiful out there.

I did spent a short time in the garden yesterday. Rather difficult getting out there without a ramp, but I made it. Managed to plant some of the things I bought at the garden centre on Wednesday that I wanted in large terracotta pots. They really do look good in their pots.
Next time my SIL visits I will get him to put the pots where I want them - for now they will be alright where I left them.

This week I will be having Milo for company during the day. My neighbour is having to attend a funeral, and will be away for a few days. So Milo is spending the nights with the lady who runs the village shop, and she will drop him off here when she is working in the shop during the day.
He is no trouble, and I'm looking forward to his company. :-)

Take care everyone - look after yourselves,
Tec :-)

Shaun so pleased that you received your card. Thought it had gone astray as the cards were posted first class on Tuesday morning and no one seemed to have had them delivered. Anyway both you and Mo have received them now, so I'm sure thst the others have all had theirs.

Glad to know that your mates have now put out all your ' resting stations ' out, lol!! as you say, it will make things a lot easier for you.

Tec, how are things with you? Have you managed to get out to the garden over the last two days? It's been lovely and sunny here, but the wind has been chilly.

Hope you have a nice weekend and will have some company for Easter.

Love and best wishes.

Good Morning Everyone,

Not read back will try again.

Hello :-)

Tec really glad to hear you had such a nice time buying so many plant's at the garden centre :-)
It is nice when you have plant's that remind you of people especially those that are no longer with us. My dad gave me a cutting from one of his rose bushes and I planted it in my garden and it grew into a lovely rose bush, when I moved to another house I took it with me and it again did well but when I moved into my flat I could only replant it into a big pot and it started to fail so I asked my sister to take it and plant it in her garden. It picked up and now when-ever I visit her I can see it, I'm glad it survived as it is the only rose that is left from all my dad's rose bushes.
He loved roses and had about 10 rose bushes in his front garden at our family home but the new owner's of his house removed them all and flagged the whole of the front garden :-(

Jude sorry you are still having to run around looking for your sister, I cannot believe there is so little interest from other's about her safety, I understand your concern for her safety and how you would feel if anything were to happen to her while out on her own and I hope something is soon decided about her being more secure and safe, take care <3

Shaun hope you and OH are well and being careful :-)
