Here it is Saturday again !

Here we are Saturday again, the sun is shining, a lovely day here, one could almost say a spring morning? But perhaps a bit early so we won’t tempt fate, although it will help the winter along, not quite warm enough to have the door open, as in Donna’s lovely graphic above, much as Kizzie would like me too!

I spoke with Jeannette, (she who travels!)last week ,she tells me she is as busy as ever ,at work ,Andy is getting better ,but gets tired very quickly ,not surprising when you consider how poorly he was ,they are beginning to  get excited about their next holiday ,which is now about a month away ,We haven’t heard from her because she is having computer problems ,and obviously because she works long hours ,not enough time to sort it out though she tells me she has tried sometimes into the wee small hours …to no avail ,I hope she can sort it out soon we miss her .

As we do dear Ally ,who recently had a nasty fall ,I was delighted to receive a phone call from her ,yesterday she has really hurt her right hand and cant type though she can manage the mouse ,so she is going to attempt to put Ally and a kiss in  the comments ,she wants me to tell you she is still reading all her alerts she has bruises and is in a lot of pain but her and her Daughter Lyn are popping their pills together ,Ally hopes she will be soon better enough ,to drive ,when Lyn has to go to hospital next month  ,she tells me the offending slippers she was wearing have now been binned  she sends everyone her love, Get well soon, Ally we miss you.

I have had a busy week, we went to see Aunty Kitty, who was very bright and happy ,which was nice, I finished Knitting the chicks for Jackie ,and took some more pictures,( plus reflections) of the valentine window at Lavender Blue .

My Daughter Sharon ,and partner Ian and of course Charlotte , went on line this week ,so Sharon tells me she spent her two days off, reading my journals right back to the beginning !!....Well I think that is all my news this time so I will close as always with my love and

 

Another lovely siggy by Chris ..CABS creations ,thankyou Chris ...

It is good to hear of someone having nice weather.  So far this month we have pretty much been sunless.  Sping will come, but the waiting is hard to do.  I love the little chicks you've made.  I haven't started thinking about Easter yet, but I'd better as I'll be filling baskets for the grand'babes'.  'On Ya' - ma

I love that graphic whith the curtains blowing.  And Lavender Blue...what can I say?  Everytime you show pictures of that shop...I want to run out to the airport and hop a plane for the U.K.  Poor Ally, but I know we are all glad she didn't break something.  And I'm happy to hear everything is ok with her & Andy but the computer.  Thanks for the update Jan.  I'm off to start packing the camper so we can get out of here this morning.  Take care & if you talk to either Ally or Jeannette again, give them my love.  Linda in Washington state

Thanks for the update on Jeanette and Ally, hope they're both on the mend soon.

cornwalldreckly said...

We have had spring like weather here too, it doesn't feel right in February - but I am not complaining.  It is nice to notice the evenings getting a little lighter too, it gives us something to look forward to.  Lovely photos of the Valentine's Day window display.  I hope both friends recover quickly.

I sat in a pub garden today, there was a chill in the breeze but was warm when there was no breeze, no doubt rain on monday, lol.Beckie x

Hi Jan, thanks for giving us the update on Ally, I hope she recovers quickly and is back with us soon. I wondered why I hadn`t had an alert from Jeannette lately, thanks again for the explaination.  I love the graphic Donna nade for you, I can almost feel the breeze blowing in.  I see Lavender Blue is all geared up for Valentine`s Day. :o)

Love Sandra xxxx

A lovely window as always from Lavender Blue :-D

Brrr that curtain blowing makes me feel cold!  It is a beautiful bright day here but very sharp!  But a nice day for walking, will be doing lots of that now as I have given my car to my son who needed to replace his and my arthritis makes it too difficult for me to drive now, so will be getting out the old bus time tables!

Hoper Ally and Jeannette are soon bright eyed and bushy tailed! :-D
