Just popped on to tell you that Firstborn's tumour is benign.  I feel like I've been holding my breath for weeks.

Morning all

Well done Chicklet.  I'm sure you'll have a great time in Brum.  We're nice and friendly round 'ere.

Been up since 5 catching up on the forum.  It's been chucking down but the sun is coming out now and think we're going to have a decent day.

Went out with Firstborn yesterday she was dress shopping for Secondborn's wedding on Monday.  Worried at the  moment as her hospital appointment is tomorrow when she'll get the results of her scan. 

Can't seem to think of anything else, dreading going on hols next week, would rather be at home.

Morning all, Been up since 5 but it took an age to read back.  Hope Paul gets home safe this morning Sussex.

Spent the day with Firstborn yesterday. She was shopping for a new dress for Secondborn's wedding on Monday.  Had a lovely time.  She's seeing the consultant tomorrow to get her results from the MIR scan.  We're very worried as they have changed her consultant and the new one is an Oncologist.  We're going on hols next week.  Really wish we weren't, don't want to be away from home.

Afternoon,  Lovely photos folks.  Could have had a chat last night Hosta I finally went to bed at 3 and slept till 7.  Firstborn and the family are back late tonight so I'll be able to see them all tomorrow.

Not sure what to do with  myself today the weather is a bit hit and miss and I can't settle to do anything.  I suspect a potter in the garden will happen at some point.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Morning all, not sure what today will bring weather wise.  It can't seem to make it's mind up.  Didn't get much sleep last night finally dropped off at 3.00.  Firstborn and the family are back late tonight so I will get to see them tomorrow.

Years ago  I dreamt that I was searching shoe shops for a pair of open toed pink boots.  We all laughed about it the next day saying who on earth would want a useless pair of open toed boots.  Should have patented the idea.

Lovely picture of Bruno Rubee he looks like you've given him a going over with the pledge.

No idea what I'll be doing today can't seem to set my mind to anything.

Enjoy the weekend folks.

Morning all, Have read back but can't remember everything. 

Sussex I'm glad Paul has had help with the pain control. I took gabapentin for years for my back pain and can't say I had a problem coming off it.  I was lucky a 3 stone weight loss meant my back improved enough to leave the strong pain medication alone.   Still have to watch what I do but don't we all.  Have to say Paul is very lucky to have you, here's to as many good days as possible.

Congrats on the new cooker Pauline it all seems to have gone smoothly.

I'm off out in a minute my friend is taking me for coffee and cake at Ashwoods

Catch up with you all later.

Hi Pauline, I missed that you had to go for a biopsy tomorrow.  Hope it goes well for you. Hugs.

I'm a no too.  I prefer to let the plants do the talking and the fencing to fade into the background.  Like sheds and seating painted though.
