Catching up on family gossip !

Hi everyone ,I could say good morning because I havent had lunch yet,I have been to the Dentist ,and she suggests I dont eat for a couple of hours,I'm quite happy to go along with her suggestion ,as long as this tooth stays put ,I very pleased with the result,it does look very natural ,I have now to lose the habit of the lopsided smile ! And I dont have to go back for six months ,Hence the Yippeeee!

Maurice has gone back to work after twelve days off which just went so quickly .He did some of the odd jobs,he had planned but not all but no matter ,We went to see family ,which was nice, on Tuesday ,First a visit to Kate ,who is still off work with her sciatia,except that shes not ! She went back to work a fortnight ago ,but was still in agony ,and soldiered on ,between her pain and the section manager ,who never spoke or was sarcastic,to Kate ,this Woman is known for her moods,but as Kate said I can just about tolerate her normally  but Kate said ,between the pain and her ,Mum I'd had enough and ended up in floods of tears ,The boss's daughter ,called Kate into her office and questioned her ,Kate told her she couldnt go on ,and had decided to leave ,well it appears they are aware of this womans attitude so ,said no way were they losing Kate, so the out come is she is now working from home,and loves it ,remember she works for a publishing company ,who publish poetry.Next we went to see Sharon ,who has moved ,they have given up the pub ,I think it was causing her relationship with her partner problems ,she was in the throws of unpacking ,Ugh! Then on to see Maurices Aunty Kitty ,she was asleep when we got there ,and on waking when I said hallo to her,she looked at me very vaguely and said 'shut up'! I darent look at Maurice who found it highly amusing ! once she had her cup of tea she was fine and we chatted away ,,well, as well as one is able with someone with advanced dementia ....We then went off to see Jean and Pete ,and admire their new kitchen and the hall they've decorated since we were last there .

        

Yesterday we went to a timber merchants who will cut the wood while you wait ,Maurice has been talking for some time of making a fireplace ,nice focal feature for the lounge ,so because he'd finished the beading on the floor he's eager to start his next project ,I like to go with him,his wife runs a little hospital at home charity shop, in a little room on the premises ,masses of books and miscellany ! I bought a big bag of machine knitting wool ,very fine, too fine for knitting with ,but last night I put about four strands together and started to crochet a throw .Well I guess thats it this trip ,as they say ,except keep your fingers crossed this is'nt a wide entry like the last few ,its fine when it leaves here ,then a little man with a steamroller flattens and widens it ,Have a good day everyone with love

Glad the dentist went well.  Fingers crossed this time lol.  You seem to have had a busy time.  Oh I remember my father with his dementia, terrible thing.  I think Corrie is portraying it very well.

Great entry today enjoyed reading about all your news.  I am in the middle of a throw as well for Stuarts shoulder when he is reading his paper at a very cold window but thats where he likes to sit when he is reading. LOve Joan.

Sounds as if you and Maurice had a good time doing a lot of visiting. Glad you got you tooth fixed. Helen

Blimey, you have been busy. Still, it's nice to see family. Shame about the lady with dementia. A friend of mine has it and he's only fifty two! It's not nice at all is it?
Glad you're dentist has sorted you out. B. x

jmoqueen said...

it's all go where you are huh?  I'm glad Kate's work are letting her carry on working bless her :-)  Hope Maurice's new handiwork goes well!!

Hi Jan!

Yes, vacations go so fast!  Glad you got your tooth fixed.  My Mom just got all new top dentures, and still fussing about them. At least you can't hear her teeth when she is talking on the phone now. But she still says they don't fit right!  I can't imagine anything foreign in your mouth fitting "right"!

Glad Kate gets to stay home and work. I've had that scatia (sp?) it's no fun.  Had to have trips to chiropractor and quit wearing cute heels.  Now it's comfort shoes or none at home.  I love barefoot or those little sockie footies.

Sounds like you had a pretty good time visiting even if you were told to "shut up"! LOL     sorry. :)

Take Care!
Darlene

I've just had to have my crown re-set, so good luck with yours! I've bought the wool for that pattern you sent me, but progress is slow here! I bet your throw will be finished first!
