Just popping in on Grandson's PC (while I clean his room) to say-
Hope your neurologist appointment goes well SHAUN and that the travelling is not to unbearable :-) :-)

Good Morning Everyone :-) :-) <3

It's absolutely pouring down in my little part of South Wales today!

Well, it's Grandson 1's first Girlfriend's birthday today! They had their 1st month anniversary last Friday!!! :-D :-D :-D

He decided that he wanted to make her present himself- so he and Granddaughter 1 bought her a plain white T-Shirt and tie-dyed it yesterday with purple dye!
I was very skeptical at first, but indeed, it came out white with the most brilliant purple patterns all over it! :-) :-) :-)

He texted her to tell her that he had made her a surprise present.
When she told him that she didn't like surprises, he sent her a photo of it! She said that she was speechless! :-D :-D :-D

Did you get the Bitter Ale Bottles ready? ;-) :-D :-D

Beautiful pictures! It does look a lovely place. We have a lovely Gardens not too far away. Bethan probably knows it- CLYNE GARDENS <3 in Swansea.
There are stunning pictures of it on Google Images! :-) :-)

Only 8 days to go until your holiday! Don't get too stressed!

hi~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ to everyone else :-) :-) <3

Hope you are all happy and doing ok, and as well as can be expected given all the health issues each of you have!
LOVE JEM <3 <3

We got to Twickers early and were jostled in the crowd;
Planted leeks and dragons, looked for toilets all around.
So many there we couldn't budge -twisted legs and pale:
I'm ashamed we used a bottle that once held bitter ale.

CHORUS......And we were singing hymns and arias,
'Land of my Fathers', 'Ar hyd y nos'.......


Hope that made you laugh! :-D :-D


MagicWales Report 6 Apr 2014 21:30

Hello Everyone :-) :-)

Von~~ have you stopped laughing :-) :-) :-)

Evening all ,

Had quite a busy weekend fiancé went to watch Swans in Hull so went out with my dad , step mum and her sis for food last night and had a nice catch up and giggle.

Today I think I have finally found a dress for the wedding in Vegas .... In my wardrobe :-0 :-D The one thing about memory loss all my outfits in wardrobe can be "new" again lol

Leo has not been a fan of the rain and getting wet so he has spent most of day in and moving around for cat naps .

Von : Thank you :-D

AnnInglos: Getting excited for hol , every now and again my anxiety really hits me but a few things have calmed me down . I am expecting the travel and time zones to knock me out of sync as the hour change here has done that :-S Leo does take pity on strays and I do , if fiancé wasn't here the strays would be adopted by me lol Batsford sounds pretty with those flowers glad you had nice time :-)

Jude: Luckily I am never there at end of day so no cashing up for me otherwise it would take hours lol Hope all is as well as it can be with you <3

Jemima: Sounds like you had lovely evening out :-D

AnnCardiff: Blinking eck I really hope they do resolve problems that your son is suffering from and no more delays !

Right ordered take away as lazy evening so chat soon .

Bethan <3 <3 <3


MagicWales Report 6 Apr 2014 16:45

Boooooooooooooo :-)

Sorted a few PMs but trying to keep legs elevated as much as poss, with these stronger water tablets I'm up and down to the bathroom like a bloody yoho.
I was thinking of fixing a hose-pipe to my tadger ( if you know what that is ) and sticking the other end of hose in the loooooooooooooooooooooooooo :-) :-) :-) :-)

Hope you are all ok.



AnninGlos Report 6 Apr 2014 15:59

Photos of our day out to Batsford Arboretum are on the photo blog if anyone is interested in seeing the magnolias.

Hi gang - so sorry about your sister Jude - really bad news that but it does explain a lot for you all

thanks for asking about my son Shaun - he ha\d the op - it was delayed for a week asnd turned out to be just an exploratory - he now has an appt with the surgeon for later this month but good nws is he's back in work - he hates being off, though he can't go back driving yet - the trains that is

They plan on doing yet another MRI scan and then the 15th op after that in the hope that finally they will solve the problem - his bum must look like the map of the world now :-S

Rotten day hre weatherwise today and the same on the horizon till Wdnesday when things will apparently take a turn for the better


MagicWales Report 5 Apr 2014 20:17

Hey-up it's that boy offffffffffffff the mountain :-) :-) :-)
Just popped in to say DON'T FRET, legs full of fluid so been flat all day.
Not read back but can see bottom of Jems post, mates have got all the sheep back in the field, thanks for asking Jem.
Trouble is that some " walkers " from the cities think they can do as they wish when there in the country and leave gates open, the majority of walkers are okay .

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ing to you all and hopping you are ok.

Take care.

Noticed I have several PMs I will answer them when I can <3

Good Evening Gang :-) <3

We had a wonderful evening last night!
The food was lovely, just pub food- homey-type!
OH, Grandson, S.I.L had Gammon, Egg and Chips. Brother had Fish and Chips.
I had Shepherd's Pie. When it came it was in an unusual type of pastry base! but it was very nice!

S.I.L and I had Pina Colada Cake (a coconut sponge cake with pineapples and cherries) and Custard...delish and blew my diet. :-0 :-0 :-D
Brother had a Chocolatey Icecream Sundae Dessert and Grandson had a special Maltesers Milkshake!

I had quite a few squiffettes as our Mersey would say!! :-D :-D

It was great catching up with my Brother<3 He is such a lovely man! He is 10 years younger than me, and we reminisced about the things I did with him and our sister when they were children.

Girl singer came on late and sounded as if she was well oiled! Good comic value though! :-D :-D

Granddaughter was there when we arrived. She came and said hello to her Great Uncle and Aunt and went back to her party. She is a beautiful looking girl! Very long, thick dark hair and big blue eyes! :-)<3

Grandson made me so proud :-) <3 . He joined in the conversions intelligently and easily, even though he doesn't know them! He has grown so tall- about 5 foot 10 now I would think!

All in all an excellent night! :-)

Hope you are all ok!

:-)SilverBuddy- Glad to hear that you are getting over the virus. Perhaps you have been run down.
I have found the best product for my hair type is VO5 MEGA HOLD Gel Spray. Not as a setting gel, but as a hairspray after styling. If I don't touch my hair for a minute or so after spraying, it doesn't go sticky and will hold the style all night without looking as if you have spray on it!

:-)Shaun- Hope your mate managed to sort out the problem with his sheep!

~~~~~~~~~ to everyone else
Love Jem <3 <3

Ok Shaun no need to panic, Tec was on the Oz thread yesterday and has his daughter and family staying from today until tomorrow at least.


AnninGlos Report 4 Apr 2014 21:34

Lots of posts to read back.
Hazel glad son didn't have a heart attack. As Silver buddy said you can live with one kidney so hope all will be well there.

Von I am on my Ipad at the moment but I will add your photo to the craft blog tomorrow. OHs seeds are coming up too.

Bethan only eleven days? Getting exciting now then. Maybe Leo took pity on the strays and invited them to stay.

Jem, hope you enjoyed your meal out and that Granddaughter enjoyed hers too.

Yvonne pleased that you are feeling better, shame you couldn't meet up with Jude.

Shaun,wonder where Tec is? Hope your mates got there sheep back.

We have been to Batsford today, the magnolia were lovely and there were also a lot of Prunus in blossom, plus the last of the daffodils, lots of Helebores still, primroses, wood anemones and anemone Blanda. Really enjoyed it, it was quite mild and cloudy sun, feeling fresher too so hopefully the pollution as gone.


Sallie Report 4 Apr 2014 21:29

Shaun hope that both you and M have had a good day, today. Shame that your mates had to leave early this evening, but they had to make sure the sheep were alright. I hope they managed to get them all back safely.

Hazel, lovely to see you post and pleased that things have got a bit better for you over the last couple of week.

Also hope that you have had a lovely day on your 60th birthday. Happy Birthday and Best Wishes to you.

~~~~~~to all our friends on here, hope that you are all okay.

Love, Sallie.xx
