Evening everyone:)

Definately not washing drying weather today and l had quite a pile of washing to go out...the tumbler did it instead:)

Diane..l am so sorry to read about your appeal be refused, please keep your chin up OK...take care x

Bethan....thats so good to hear about the blinky chavs, what a relief for you both...pheww. Great too to read that you enjoyed the charity shop, are you on the shop floor or upstairs, do they have an online sales?? Hows that Leo?? thats good the house is all settled, that seemed to go by quite quickly. Hope the physio does the trick. Is your mothers day is the same as USA?

Von...before l forget, l have been playing about with the fabric storage boxes and taken some photo's, will try and get them onto AnnG blog.....a few foo parrrs but good fun. The reason l'mdoing it is cause Oxfam do a competition each yr for the public to make something from a used item..upcycling l think its called, l bought an old pr of jeans and bright pink childs dress that had been thrown out. The one's l've made are samples

Shaun...still don't know who made the racket under the floor boards, l even took a wardrobe drawer....out yesterday to make sure there were no
Yes l think you are right about the Water Vole, how cute is that, apparently there are loads in the woods next to us and the Gwent Wild life know about them too, cause they are abit rare nowadays!

Tec...hows you doing?? l'm reading a book at the moment called "My Gentle Barn" by Ellie Laks from USA...brilliant so far, she written it from the heart and its her experiences with animals and how animals saved her basically, then she inturn saved them:)) If you would like to borrow it l could post it to you when finished??

AnnG...your patio sounds lovely, now the best bits adding the pots and plants etc.
We are waiting for another blinky decking quote, should be by Monday-Wed approx, fingers crossed its a good price, so fed up with the garden as it is, not safe for Madoc and a mess... :-( :-(

~~~~~#to everyone not mentioned:)

Sister...was in a very sad mode this morning, saying how she has done nothing, seen no one (and l know full well how busy she has been, but at 9am not many people are out and about)....but a different person at the hairdressers would'nt know she had a problem. Her carer brought her and took her back. When she is with friends/family she will tell them awful stories of how no one see's her, Jude is having a break down!!!! her son always argues with her etc etc.....when with strangers (l was sitting next to her at hairdressers), she can chat/ask and answer questions as if there is no problem. She always asks me about the grandchildren infront of others and then does the sad thing about not having any....grrrrr.(always makes me feel guilty)....she's either very clever or that really is how she is now and thats how the dementia works (if that is what she has). Dr's tomorrow, hopefully with some results!!

Take care everyone...xx
Off to bed to read more of The Gentle Barn...:)
night night.

Sorry Ann
You posted as I was typing.
Hope we have some good weather so you can sit out and enjoy the patio.


Von Report 2 Apr 2014 14:15

I'm saying nuffin but too many mushrooms come to mind ;-) ;-) ;-)


AnninGlos Report 2 Apr 2014 14:14

Diane I am sorry about your frustrating annoying news yesterday. Is there anything else you can do?

Bethan, pleased that you had a good day at the shop and that the neighbours have collected more of their stuff.

Shaun :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-S :-S


AnninGlos Report 2 Apr 2014 14:12

Well the patio is finished and a good job they have done too. Of course now it is down to us to put the finishing touches. two sides are bordered by slate beds so now we need more slate, hopefully we can get that tomorrow. Then we need to sort out the pots that came off the old patio, hostas in most of them, just cosmetic bits really. the patio is made of what they call cobbles. to me it looks like the old victorian paths, different sized 'bricks' put together like a jigsaw. I didn't really know what to expect but I like it, it is very attractive.

raining a bit now, probably bringing down more of the Sahara!!! Both cars are covered in it, don't need any more.

I haven't read back, will do now.

Good Afternoon Shaun and Welsh Thread Friends- Hope you are all having a good day :-) :-) <3 <3


SylviaInCanada Report 2 Apr 2014 04:10

Hi Shaun, and everyone

It was physio day today ............... he really worked on my knee ....... he doesn't think it is structural (ie, not arthritic), but the muscles in my thigh have tightened, so I've been given some exercises to do.

If it doesn't improve in the next 2 weeks, then he will ask for an Xray to be done to be sure that he there is nothing there.

It was a lovely sunny day, and quite warm. The skies were clear, and there were the most wonderful views over to the mountains to the north of here. Fresh snow had fallen in the last week, so the mountain tops were just gorgeous!

Meanwhile, I'm still Hopalong Cassidy :-)

Everything to do with the cabin is now finished ............ we picked up 24 post-dated cheques from the Notary yesterday. Now all we have to do is remember to deposit the relevant one on the right day each month :-)

Mother's Day is in May for us.

take care everyone
