Hello Barbra, that was a shame to delete the other thread with all our chatting on it. This morning we had a good walk along the canal from Saul Junction (near Gloucester) To Frampton on Severn and back a total of just under four and a half miles. Our legs ached as none of us have done much walking for quite a while. We were with daughter and her OH who are down staying with us for the weekend.We had a coffee in the little cafe at Saul Junction before we walked then a glass of wine for Lyn and I, a coke for OH and a beer for Joe. had a late lunch when we got home. for our meal this evening it is a late Mothers' day treat, a meal at the Beefeater.

Oh that sounded a lovely day Ann. Hope you had a lovely meal later.

I was going to sort out all my flower pots as some are waterlogged and need repotting but today, its been chilly and damp and the wind biting cold.
I lit the stove this afternoon to warm up.
So I stayed in and spring cleaned my baking cupboard, never realised how messy it was.

Im nearly recovered from this swine flu(well they think that's what it was as several have it but couldn't get tested and too late now) but still have a very loose chesty cough so don't want to be outside in a draft.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone.

Still confused as to why the other thread was deleted but nevermind

Hello all, sorry been in Devon and now Dorset and not on here a lot. Go home tomorrow. We have had a good twelve days time soon went.

Joan sorry you are still in pain, do you think you should see the doctor? It seems to have gone on a long time.

Barbra, have you fallen? If not why do you worry about falling. Nice to get the baskets and pots sorted, all we want now is warm weather. The forecast is for cold though :-(

Hello all sun and cloud no rain today. Garden is looking good, we go to Wales tomorrow so by the time we get back we will need to redo the garden. Hanging baskets are all grouped on a table on the patio ready for our neighbour to water them, they look good so far. Speak soon.

Well good evening peeps.
I haven't been well at all hence my absence from the boards.
An emergency Echocardiogram has shown that my prolapse of the mitral valve has gone from moderate to severe.That was a shock!
I am now waiting to go and see the professor in a glasgow hospital with major heart surgery on the horizon.
I remain positive that the surgery can be avoided and so until I get told by the prof, I just carry on like I do.
Hope everyone else is keeping hale and hearty.
We had a cracking week last week weatherwise,.Sports day was brilliant for a change!

Its really been a wet, damp day today and rain with low temps for the rest of the week.
Oh well back to normal for us.
Take care

Florence in the hebrides

Sorry you have been so poorly, Florence. I hope you can get by without surgery. Do take care of yourself .

Same goes for everyone on here, take care and stay as well as you can.



Florence61 Report 22 May 2019 19:50

Good evening peeps.
Thanks Barbara and Liz for your good wishes.
Unfortunately deep down I think I know that major heart surgery is going to happen, I just find it all a bit surreal!

Been a damp and cold day here today and Im already in my dressing gown keeping cosy.
I transplanted some seedlings at the weekend into larger pots but for now they are staying on my coffee table in the lounge as if I put them outside now, they will not survive.Looks like a greenhouse in
The sun when its out in the afternoon streams through the window and its so warm and great for the plants.

Hope everyone else is ok.
have a good evening
