Goodbye 2013

In a while we shall be going next door to spend the evening with the In-Laws (plus our middle daughter and her husband), to play board games and cards. We shall see in the New Year, then sing Happy Birthday (to Father-in-Law). Tomorrow we shall spend the whole day next door for Mum's Christmas '...

You've Got To Laugh!!

I have been watching some nasty mildew building up in the porch area. Well, today was the day to do something about it. Moved everything out of the way, washed down the walls, found the paint and off I go. After a few minutes I heard Mum-i-L coming to see me. She stayed and chatted for a w...

Tomorrow Is Another Day

Hopefully a better 'tomorrow' will come sooner then later! I've had a rotten few yesterdays lately! Amongst them is a poorly husband (getting better now), a friend who commited suicide, a Mum-in-Law who's knee is getting worse (but not bad enough for an operation apparently!), and to top it off,...

50

Not a birthday, pints! :D Today I donated my 50th pint, a shame it all went wrong - if you are squeamish don't bother reading on!!! Everything was fine right up until I was on the chair - the nurse put the blood pressure sleeve on and pumped it up - then she started with the patting/prodding...

Poor Taffy!

I had to take Taffy to the vets this afternoon - something has bitten/stung his paw and it's swollen and infected. It doesn't help that he kept licking it. Well, 66 poorer (an injection, medicine and a soft collar), and a mangled collar later, he is doing his very best to make me feel really gu...

Tomorrow

I can't believe how quickly the last year has passed! That's how long my daughter has been planning her wedding - Tomorrow is the day!! Yesterday I washed and polished the car, I cleaned the house throughout, I made up the spare bedroom (Albyn is coming to stay with us tonight! :D), I even tidie...

Making The Most Of It

Well, summer is now with us - what a glorious day it is out there. What am I doing this afternoon? I'm taking Mum-in-Law to hospital, to have her second cataract operation! She had her first one 6 weeks ago and was amazed at the difference. Cataracts sneak up on you and she hadn't realised h...

TAFFY!!!!!

You'll never guess what Taffy brought into the house yesterday! The girls (who were all visiting for Father's Day! :D) could hear an odd "buzzing" noise, so I decided to check and see where it was coming from. As I opened the porch door a very large and very lively Hornet flew at me!!!...

Not Long Now

Under 5 weeks to go until my middle daughter's wedding. :D Everything is coming together, she has worked so hard to get everything just right. It didn't help that the company who were organising the affair suddenly wrote to her and said "Oh, by the way, we are no longer doing weddings - you...

One Down...............

One To Go. Yesterday at about 1 pm Mum had a phone call, asking if she could get to the hospital by 2.30 pm. After a flurry of activity we managed it, with a little time to spare! She's had her right eye operated on to remove a cataract (the left one will be in about 6 - 8 weeks (which is a b...

My new camera (a Canon Powershot SX240 HS) has arrived. I've already had a little play and I'm very impressed!! The zoom function is amazing - I zoomed into the trees at the very top of the hill, the image is good, clear and sharp. I then zoomed in further on the screen and I can see individual l...

Hubby Said I Could!!

What? You may ask...................buy myself a new compact camera!! :) I have had one (which I keep in my handbag) for a long time, but was always bitterly disappointed with the zoom function, 4x (or lack of). So I've ordered a Canon Powershot SX240 HS (20x) - looking at the reviews (both on E...

ZZZzzzzzt!

Is it just me? Does anyone else have a problem with static? I seem to be very susceptible to electricity - I've accidentally touched electric fences many times.................even a small piglet fence can have me flat on my back and seeing stars! (I remember coming to, hearing my mother-in-law ...

Spring Clean

It is glorious out there - warm(ish) sunshine, hardly a breathe of wind! Where are the howling gales and torrents of rain we were forecast!! I've been out in the garden. Taken down the far feeders, it will soon be time to use the clothes line again and the feeders were too close for me to open ...

Update

Just a quick update on my last blog entry - I went down to the pond today to find the duck's nest had been destroyed and all eggs were broken/eaten. Such a shame!
