Wow. ..Having grandkids living with you is 1 thing, but to bring up a Gt Grandchild is mind blowing.

You must own a lot of calm quality.

Good Postnoon to my good Pals, Myk and Kathy :-) :-) :-)

Myk, you r not solo with arthritis. I can so b sympathising with you about arthritis. I know how bad it can b. I'v got arthritis in my scruff, back-support and lumbar parts, hip, mid low-limb bits, digits up and down!

I am also in clamorous straights with ability of walking and various pursuits. It is so difficult to swallow fact that I cannot b doing what I could do. I <3 walking, taking Grandkids for days out to sands, swimming and stuff. Not long ago I taught Grandson 1 to climb rocks. All of a flash, I cannot do that stuff.

But hay, I can talk to you lot on this yarn lol :-D :-D :-D :-D

I still try to go walking as oft as I can, so my joints do not pack in totally. I am hoping to go out with my alloy? finding apparatus, I bought many moons ago, that I dug up from my hut last month. Should b good fun! :-D

I also lyk jigsaws, crosswords, puzzling stuff to b solving, and indubitably, Family History! FH is most satisfying hobby of all, as it is a puzzling-solving pursuit of such grand proportions - to be allowing brain to do it's work!:-D :-D :-D

Kathy .... do you hav a fun hobby that you do? :-)

Baby Oil, Kathryn, Baby Oil :-D

Mossy spray is also a must for I.
Always succumb to strings from bugs.
So much so that I usually obtain antibiotics from doctor.

Skin-so-Soft was said to ward off flying things so I bought sum, but ruddy bugs just thought it was a garnish and had a birthday !
Back to drawing board :-0

Thanks for info about your 5x G Aunt.
Afraid walking is not my strong point 'cos of arthiris, but I can stroll as long as it's flat.
Arriving at old birthdays not much fun if struggling to do normal things.
Still must thank good luck if you r sound of body and can go about tasks without having to sit down a lot.
Was doing planting today and boy do I know about it now!
But glad I could do it though.
Now can just sit back and watch blooms grow.

Kathy, I'v not put foot far from UK on many occasions too.

That's just it, Myk! UK lack of trustworthy hot sun is a factor in many chosing holidays.
UK has stunning situations to visit!

Myk, if you do visit W of Cymru, Coastal Path walks r fab all along that!
You might just b imagining my 5x G.Aunt - original J*mima Fawr (J*mima Nicholas) who was famous for capturing a gang of invading Warriors Francais not far from Fishguard, in 1797.
Said warriors had put footfall in my Dad's county of birth- P*mbs. 1st Mima was marching with pitchfork in hand and solo was capturing and locking up said warriors in local church! :-D :-D :-D

Look it up - much on grid about it :-)

Nothing wrong with that.
I didn't go abroad until I was almost forty.
My pal who is coming up to 70 has only just got passport for first tym.

Lots of points on British map that I still hold on my list.
Luv visiting sights far away but not a fan of airports.
Wouldn't go out of Britain if sun was a constant factor as it is just now.
Fabulous days this Spring for days out and about locally.
Long may it last :-)


Kathryn Report 9 May 2017 10:21

Hi Miky, good for you, I'm glad you r making plans to carry on roaming .

Hi Kathy :-)
No, just a walk on the sand. It was too cold. Had to b making do with park's pool! :-D

It was calming looking at c's rolling froth though :-D


Kathryn Report 7 May 2017 18:15

Hi J, did you go for a swim int c
Or was it too cold :-D


JemimaFawr Report 7 May 2017 17:36

I am back. Not from a far away, fascinating situation as Myk has good luck to visit, but from a situation 1 hour away from moi .... 10B! ;-) :-D

Having said that, 10b is a gratifying situation to visit, and folk cum from all around UK towns to visit, and from abroad too.

My family and I did book 2 caravans, and had a good holiday for 4 nights in Kiln Park, 10b.

I am now worn out ..... and am wond'ring why do I insist on booking holidays:-S if I am in want of an additional holiday on arriving back again, to pick up from it?! :-S :-S

Packing my hat and scarf away
Boxing up my boots.
Good to go to far off lands
But a comfort to find my roots

Was cold in Finland
Icy in Russia
Smashing to cum back to warm spring days
