Visiting

And a Blessed Sunday ..to you all .

We had a lovely day out yesterday ,first we went shopping ,I think the idea was for Maurice to buy some thing for my Birthday ,but I really didnt see any thing I wanted /needed or liked ,I didnt see the point of spending money for the sake of it ..any way this tooth will have cost over a hundred pounds ,and he had recently surprised me with a beige suede bomber jacket ,I was more than happy to take a rain check ! 

We then called in to see Aunty Kitty ,we hadnt been for a couple of weeks I didnt want to pass on the bug ,felt I should keep it all to myself Huh !She becomes ever more frail and muddled ,but I know she was pleased to see us ,and bits of the old spark shone through as we tried to talk to her .

Our next port of call was to Kate and Martins ,Kate has been in agony with sciatica ,she didnt pick the best time ,half term ,the boys have been very good helping her though ,as I sat enjoying my coffee in her dining room, I was admiring the picture on the wall opposite and said ,some time Id like a copy of that ,well they let me take it ,and I printed off a copy ,and also scanned it to show you ,its a family portrait with a difference .

Our last visit of the day was to see Mike and Jacquie,Mike is Maurices brother ,lots of chat and laughter ,and when it was getting time to leave I noticed a lovely sunset,and red sky ,through their lounge window  ,made a mental note to take a picture on the way home ,but as our farewells took longer ,as they do ,with lots of let me just tell you this's ! We missed the sunset ,and Iguess the red sky simply meant the "shepherds hut was on fire"..because its very grey and dank here this morning .And so on that note I will go and find something to do Jean and Pete are coming over this afternoon

Have a lovely day everyone ,with love from  

    Sara made this for me ages ago ,before I knew what to do with it .

You sound like you had a full day yesterday, glad you enjoyed it! Glad Aunt Kitty is still well. I can relate to Kates sciatica, I've had it for years on and off, it's very painful. Have a good day today and enjoy your birthday tomorrow. Jeannette xx

Hope you had a lovely Birthday Jan, I am also visiting today - my son & daughter-in-law are cooking lunch for me so just popping in here whilst my hair dries [just had a lovely long soak in the bath :-)) ]  Have been updating my story about leaving Switzerland and as I am having a day off tomorrow (taking one of my pussycats for his booster jab) I will try to find time to add a bit more.

My lovely grandson is getting so big - hard to believe he is only 41/2 months old - will put some pics of him in my journal when I get back,
Hope everyone has a restful, peaceful Sunday!
Freda

I have been a little distracted with all that is going on in my life, so I haven't been by for a bit.  That picture is cool!  JAE

Glad you had such a wonderful time visiting.  We never get visitors.  All the people we knew have either passed on or have moved far away  What a wonderful picture!  Your journal is looking really nice with the graphics.
