I'm back !

Hi Everyone,have you missed me ? I have been so busy ,as I told you Maurice has been on holiday for the last two weeks and we have been visiting many interesting places ,as well as visiting friends and family,and doing jobs in the home and the garden .I did manage to keep up with my alerts (when they came back !),and I did my dedication to my 9/11 Fireman John Santore ,I have to admit to feeling very affected by that ,and I know others shared that feeling after they had done their tributes too.

               Yesterday I went to collect my new specs as you will see from the pictures ,I went for the eye test last Monday ,and the optician told me they would be ready in ten days,so I was pleasantly surprised to get the phone call yesterday to say they were ready .           .

We called in to see Jean and Pete ,and she gave me my 'per una top ' arent sisters nice ?As well as the piece for John Santore,I did a  write up for the news letter for the company I used to work for, about last Friday evening ,when we went to a Disco ,some of the staff very talented, had formed a group ,comprising ,drums,two lead/rhythm/bass  guitarists , accompanied with saxophone ,the girl from the office who deals with benefits ,was a very able lead singer ,her rendition of 'The first cut is the deepest 'had to be heard to be appreciated,she had a backing group of three of the girls who all have responsible positions within the firm ,and wowed the audience with a sexy song and dance routine  to 'All that jazz'

So that was how we finished up our first weeks holiday ,we have been to see a tiny church ,a seventeenth century house that was ,opened to the public on National Heritage day ,We also went to Sandringham where the Queen and about twenty two members of the Royal family spend much of their winter ,we saw the church where they worship and the museum,We have also been fishing again(and it was fine this time) . but as I still have things to do ,I will be telling you about all these things in my journals ,in the next few days   So have a lovely weekend with love and hugs from

You are one hot grandma, Jeanne!  You have the body of a 20 year old!  I love your jeans and your shirt! :)

Glad you had a good time!  Everytime I hear you talk about the places you visit it just makes me want to visit England, more and more.  I swear as soon as I get situated with a new job.. that's the next thing on my agenda.  England, Ireland and Scotland!  :)

Hugs
Jackie

Glad that you had such a good holiday and have been going to some nice places. I was affected very much when doing my tribute that I could not post for a couple of days afterwards especially when I read some of the other tributes.  Looking forward to hearing all about your adventures.

I am pleased that you both have had a lovely holiday and I have to agree with you about the church but my family and I have not been that way for a long time now and our memories are not as sharp as they should be.

By for now,

John.
