Morning all

Used to love cross stitch Yvie .... Is yours a Christmas design?  Or is Christmas just a handy deadline?

Got back from hospital yesterday evening, reassured that all is well.  Only 3 and a bit more weeks to get thru til the last op.  Might need to adapt an advent calendar (with chocolates) to get me through.

Much wind overnight here too ....will go and have a wander in a bit to see if anything moved.

In our thoughts

So, so sad .....and yes, in our thoughts and prayers

Morning all

Love my iPad mini Pdoc ....perfect for forum viewing. You'll wonder how you ever managed without one

Another adventure with OH yesterday - they rushed him into hospital yesterday afternoon and kept him in overnight (wanted to do a 1am blood test).  It seems all is well and he gets to come home later.  Think my adrenalin levels are now on empty

Morning Peeps

Sunshine here ....might be its last appearance for a few days.  Think I'd better start planning for an insidey sort of weekend.  Is it too early to be scanning seed catalogues ?? Still have the Chiltern one on my bedside table, and the list of things to try is longer than the windowsill space already

Taxi-ing sort of day and night ahead .....hoping the winds don't hit here too early.

Wise words from Wonky, Pdoc. Doing nothing is you taking control, not impotence

Sounds like lots of Eden visits possible for Lyn and Hosta

Had a grotty few days with Mr C - I dragged him to the GP yesterday, where they told him off for doing too much too soon, but otherwise reassured us that everything was ok. Apparently it is quite normal to take 2 steps forward and 1 back in this sort of recovery . Anyway, he seems brighter again this morning.

Loving Lizzie's cottage plans .....2 gardens sounds wonderful

Fine here at the minute, but sharing others gloom at the look of the forecast
