March winds .Mothers day, and Meetings

So we survived the Earthquake ,thankfully, not an experiance I would be keen to repeat .Then came February 29th ,wow an extra day ,and no I didnt propose to Maurice ,if its not broken dont fix it ! We are fine as we are ,in fact better than fine ,as near perfect as you can get .

March came in roaring like a lion in fact a whole pride of Lions ,causing alot of damage poor Kate was so upset to wake to find her calf and sheep ornaments in the garden had been broken in the wind ,they are lieing in our garden as Maurice has said he would ''try ''and fix them for her ,oh dear !....... 

Then as soon as I threw out all my flowers from my Birthday ,and took down my cards along came Mothers day ...and Oh I am blessed ,more flowers cards choccies and presents ,I saw Daughter Kate and Martin on Saturday when they came to visit ,then on Sundayson  Mark and Chrissie came over ,and my sister Jean and her husband Pete ,I had lovely phone calls from son  Derek and daughter Sharon ,so  a very lucky Mum am I .

Yesterday ,because I was going stir crazy we had a ride over to St Ives (Cambs)a lovely little town we enjoy ,and because I still had some birthday money from Kate that was burning a hole in my pocket I bought a skirt (per una) I love their stuff ...oh hurry up nice weather so I can wear them (I bought one with my Christmas money  didnt I? )I am fed up with my winter things now .But will be wearing them abit longer I fear cos 'The March wind doth blow and we shall have snow ?please no ! and what will the Robin do then ? poor thing ,he'll  stay  in the barn to keep himself warm ,and hide his head under his wing ,poor thing '

Maurice is back at work ,so Im playing catch up but as Im not getting on very well ,so thought I'd sit and do an update here .Tomorrow being the first Wednesday in the month is the day for my club .Then on Friday I am off to the residents forum  bi monthly meeting ,my they come around quickly .and so dear friends that is me up to date again so as usual love  and

The March winds are really bitter aren`t they Jan? I took Jake out this morning and I`m sure the wind went right down to my bones....brrrr! One good thing is that I`ve got all my washing line dried and smelling really fresh, all ready to iron. Would you like to do mine when I`m away?  I know it`s your favourite job...lol!  Dan bought me a gift voucher from Next for Christmas and it`s burning a hole in my pocket too, what shall I get ....new shoes for Spring?  new jeans?  I`ll check out Next while I`m shopping with Kerry!

Love Sandra xxxx

We had snow this morning, not much and it didn't stay for long, but it was very cold.  I am looking forward to the spring and lighter evenings.

Jan
It is easy to see you have a very loving family.  I'm glad you had such a nice Mother's Day and I enjoyed seeing all the pictures.  I'll bet you share that stuffed toy with Kizzie after all, LOL!  The shot of Kizzie peering over Kate's shoulder at the computer was just precious!  I'll keep my fingers crossed that Spring and Summer come early for you this year.

I'm so glad that you had such a lovely Mother's Day Jan!  Your daughter looks like a real sweetheart!  We've had a sunny day here today, but very cold!  I don't mind if it's cold as long as the sun shines!

I agree with comment #14. Doesnt seem quite fair to me ;-). I am praying we dont get March snow. I have done a lot of planting in the garden. Stay well! Sal.

faveanti said...

I have some birthday money burning a hole in my purse too, about every 4 days!  Huh?  What's that?  Keith eeps 'borrowing' it and I have to keep nicking it back.  No respect some people!

I'm new to your journal but wanted to come say hi.  I heard you were a good read so I thought I would come read a while.  :)  I have a few journals but my main one is private.  I added you in case you would like to come check it out.

You've done quite well for yourself between the birthday and Mother's day.  Poor Kate....I loved those ornaments.  I hope Maurice can fix them.  March is absolutely a mess here.  I doubt that spring will be here for a good while.  AOL is giving me problems tonight...grrrr.  I can't see your pictures.  Love xx Chris

wipforever said...

We are very, very tired of snow!  Hopefully, the daffodils that are creeping up out of the ground and the plump buds on the trees means that we'll have an early Spring!

Love and hugs,
Sheila

We were lucky on the east side of Scotland we did not get the snow but it is cold. You did do well on Mothers day. Love your skirt wish I was slim enough to wear one. Love Joan.

kirkbyj05 said...

How lovely to see a photo of 'Your Kate'.  At last I know what she looks like Jan!  She is beautiful and obviously takes after her dear Mum.
What about your skirt?  It is fab!  I want it!  Mind you...I would have to grow a good few more inches to fit into it as I am only 5'1"  You will look so elegant in it my friend.
Hurry up warmer weather.
Hugs
Jeanie xxxx
