Jude, Don't really know what to say. Problems seem to be piling up not getting better. You did say a while back that she might be able to transfer nearer to her son. Is that still on the cards?

Mersey. Glad to hear we have to lots of sparkling dust to make us happy.

Just a quickie.....l am fuming!!!!

Had various chats with sister this morning on the phone, she said she was going to walk into town, even left a message on my landline. l thought l had persuaded her not to.......

Vic was on his way to visit Phil (Auntie Jeans OH) and saw her walking over the bridge in town. He was at the traffic lights and then just carried onto Phils!! He phoned me from there to tell me about her. l then phoned the reception at the village where she lives....they said she had been in and said she was going for a walk.....but had been told not to stop her...NOT TO STOP l got hold of Vic and asked him to go find her, he even thought she was safe and ok!!!!. l eventually got her on mobile, she was in a coffee shop (now l know she gets bored and very lonely and by being in the coffee shop she was happy) and said she was fine. l suggested vic joined her, which he did but had to get her back for the carers visit at 12.15. These particular carers are a private company and are brilliant and have registered with sister social worker several issues of concern. Remember l said before the reception and maintenance men have done the same to their bosses.
So l rang the private company to warn them that she was about to return home with Vic and be prepared. They updated me on other being the taxi company they use to take her from A to B found her in the MIDDLE of the very road at the bottom of the drive where she lives....l dont think he could stop but reported it to the private company thank goodness.
l phone my nephews partner about something quite different and told him about sisters outing, he said "why you worried, leave her, she'll get back home if not she'll phone someone".......we have to go see him in a minute to deliver something, l so hope l keep my mouth shut.
l can sort of understand the receptionist not stopping her, she does'nt come under their umbrella of care (which is wrong but thats another issue), but they could have rung me or some f-in body..
So what with a sister that can't go out on her own, needs 24 hr care now, a husband that can't see the danger she could have been in (he knows all about the worrying issues we have), a care facility that can't care and a nephews partner that does'nt care either....l'm really piss'd off..

OK RANT OVER. off to see nephews partner now. l'm not driving... :-D :-D :-D :-D

Silver Buddy im never out of special sparkle dust :-D :-D :-D <3 Never worry , Smiley Dust is an added bonus now ;-)

Hello all,

Beautiful day here today blue skies, sunshine and nice and blowy for the washing. No, I am not putting it out someone else will be doing that. Feeling bit better today will be glad when I don't have to update you on my state of health. Thanks for all the kind thoughts.

Mersey, Thanks for your kind wishes. Where's the fairy dust have you run out?

Jem, It will go and I will be my old self again. Maybe then I can stop being a moaning Minnie. Hey, did the girl friend like her tee shirt when she was given it? Poor lad having to deal with a girl friend at his age. Hope she treats him gently.

Von, Still waiting to know about the ducking, diving, bobbing and weaving.

Sallie, Am kicking this bug thing slowly. Hope all is well with you and yours.

Diane and Mersey, When you two get together don't forget I need to know all the gossip once you get back on here.

Shaun, Any snow? Wonder if you will have a second blooming of cherry blossom!

Tec, Wheelchair driving skills must be coming on apace now you have been home a while.

Hazel, You busy?

Jude, Sounds like Madoc is getting more settled if he's eating better. Boy are you busy sorting out and cleaning. Hope you get the garden sorted soon. Amazing isn't it how people think that they are entitled to use other peoples property in any way they want.

That's me done for now. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~to all not mentioned. Have a good day all.


AnninGlos Report 15 Apr 2014 10:12

Ohhh missed Bethan, I hope she has a wonderful time. We love Las Vegas.

Jude no I don't play golf now, had a go 10 years back but it wasn't my thing. Sport rarely is Lol!!! But a golf T shirt is no different to a T shirt with a collar bought anywhere, just usually very expensive.

Beautiful day here, have to accompany OH to the dentist (he is as bad as me and hates it), then shopping at Tesco then back to do some more gardening I think. :-) :-D

Morning everyone:)

Another beautiful day here, whats it like with you lot?? could be at your destination now, relax and enjoy, you deserve it girl :-)

AnnG...well...we know the utility people go through when checking the electric boxes and don;t ask, l have had to check a few times and ask what they are doing!!!
It is quite open to be honest, everytime the dog goes out we have to watch him. The front is fenced and there is a bush along the side but our workmen and Vic have pushed through parts and we now have GAPS, these are the gaps that the
neighbours are going to fill today...Vic just does'nt worry like me and will leave it.

Before we moved in people had been seen walking through into the woods, don't know why cause its a dead end and private lland and there is a notice art the beginning of our road to say no through road, but that just temps people even more me thinks. When we had the floods and the river was just flowing onto the grass, one or two cars turned up parked on the road outside our house where we park our car and the occupants took photo's of the river...obviously did'nt take any notice of the signs........grrrrr

CAN'T WAIT for the decking and fencing :-) :-D :-D

Hope everyone has a lovely day and take care all... ;-)

~~~~~~~~~~~~ to you ALL.. :-P :-P

Jude I will send you the link tomorrow as it is upstairs, remind me if I don't.

Were people actually walking through your garden? Don't you have anything to block the way with? I assume you are waiting for fencing to be done.


~`*`Jude`*`~ Report 14 Apr 2014 21:34

Evening everyone:)

Busy day busy day, but makes me feel good....completely spring cleaned the bedroom, although still have window sills outside todo, and sorted some boxes so l can get stuff under the bed.
Ordered a new Plastic shed for the stuff we can't get under the bed. All sheds and out building/cupboards have to be plastic, or concrete like our other one (abit small though), that holds the animal feed and gardening bits and bats.
Played about with a fabric easter egg....wound embroidery silks etc round a partially blown up balloon...its much too round though and l put soo many layers of glue/flour paste on that the balloon would'nt burst, took ages to pull/peel it all
A neighbour has very kindly offered to fill in the gaps (where Madoc can escape) with logs etc, also to stop members of the public wondering through our garden....l cried when l got indoor, such a
We think we are going to use the last company re decking, meeting him on Thursday eve here,he's bringing samples and we have further plans for him using less fencing!!

Shaun....what lovely mates you have, did l say that before?. You and Mersey are a right pair of l see somewhere mentioned that your last hospital appointment was cancelled when you got there....AGAIN???

Jem...hope the grandkids are feeling better today, and hope you are resting whilst they are off fror Easter?

Talking of Jem.....our ducks (wild ones)Jim and Jem had 8 there are only 4...neighbours have seen Seagulls flying off with one in beak....GRRRR...and we have alot of Seagulls!!!

AnnG...can you send me a link to your photo blog please. Do you play golf? l ask cause you said you bought a golfing t-shirt??

Bethan...have you gone yet, can't remember if its happened or its Wed. Enjoy though and all the bestes with job application:)

Tec...sorry to read about your Duchess, but you know she is ok where she is and l'm sure she settles down again as soon as you have gone. This illness leaves us the relatives feeling guilty and sad, we should'nt feel like that, but we do, and most times the sick relative is oblivious of our feelings. Even my sister who can still make decisions and look after herself in some area's is oblivious how we and her friends are feeling/dealing with it. She does'nt even realise they all know she has dementia.

Madoc has eaten so well today, apart from his own meals one of which he left half of so l added some cooked chicken and rice to eat...whoosh gone in a flash!! he's also had his bonio and carrot ;-) ;-)

Well l think its bed time to finish reading The Gentle Barn book :-)

l've started a Diet thread, can't remember what l've called it now...doh, but in it l talked about what we had for dinner this evening....l have a weight chart on wall, so hope l have lost abit by the end of the week.....12st is far too much for me :-| :-|

Hi SilverBuddy :-) :-)

Sorry to hear you are poorly again :-(

What I am finding, is that the hols are easier than school, when it comes to my Grandson who lives with me.
When my daughter was home from school though, it was horrendous! Strop, quarrels, power games etc! I was glad to see her going to school! :-D :-D
Funny how personalities, even within families, can differ so much! :-D

Hello all,

Shaun, Not too many of the magic mushrooms. Glad you had a lovely time at the farm.

Von, Ducking and diving, bobbing and weaving, sounds really interesting!

Sallie, Can't believe how long it is taking to get rid of it. Back again today. Not going to allow it to put me in bed again though. It's got to work through the system at some point or that's what I keep telling myself.

Tec, Good to know you have another dog as company. He sounds gorgeous. We will be having our son's nutty golden Labrador over Easter. She is gorgeous too by the way. Hope you get what you want from the garden centre. Good luck with appointment.

AnninG, You are not the only one who didn't watch the London marathon this year. I didn't either. Garden looks lovely in the photos.

Jem, I was talking about not quite 40 years ago. Maybe my lot were all into all the activities. Even in primary/junior school there was always something going on that they needed bits and bobs for. Holidays were a time to catch my breath. Hope the girls all get over this rotten bug they have soon.

Bethan, Fingers crossed for the job. Have a good holiday.
