Another busy week ....


Sunday morning, Maurice has gone back to work today, it does feel strange. He was off for two weeks before his operation, so has been here for two months, Ah well I suppose I will be able to get back into some sort of routine again! Though thinking about it, I don’t do routines well! Since I last posted I have been busy ,Last Monday Maurice and I went to St Ives ,there is a lovely Market there as I have said before ,A great haberdashery stall ,where I buy buttons and other craft accessories .Then on Tuesday I went again to St Ives this time with the ladies from our over sixties group ,We went to the’ Edinburgh wool shop’ to select outfits to be worn at a fashion show they do for our group ,with members as models ! So watch this space.
On Thursday , Maurice went to see a couple of his friends who where fishing at Godmanchester ,so he dropped me off in Huntingdon ,where I did some shopping A book (of course)Patricia Cornwell’s ‘At Risk’ . And some much needed cosmetics, I had nearly run out of blusher and I got a couple of eyeshadows from Boots, buy two get third free and a colour for my hair and some tights! ,and then my Boots points, I do love a bargain ,I guess we all do .Thursday late afternoon we went to Peterborough ,to see my Son Mark and his wife Chrissie, they have moved house so we had to go and check it out!
On Friday, when Maurice went to get his hair cut I put my colour on my hair and cut it .and started to get my stuff ready for the Tenants conference .My Daughter Kate and Grandson Sam have been down to Dorset To visit my son Derek and his wife Tricia and the three boys , whist the children were on half term ,so after Derek had dropped them off at Kate’s he popped over to see us .So as you see it has been a busy week ,then yesterday Saturday I was up early and off we went to Peterborough for the Annual Tenants conference ,but I think I will leave that for another entry ,
We went to see Mark and Chrissie and of course Blue

Floyd was pleased to see us too ...

Paul (my Grandson and his girlfriend )Tamara came over with Derek .see who else got in the picture !
Have Blessed Sunday Everyone .....with love from ...

Good Morning ! I just came on to check and see if anyone had made an entry. I've been up since 5 as I couldn't stay in bed any longer and anyway there was your lovely entry. I'm glad Maurice has recovered and able to go back to work now. I know you'll probably miss him. It's easy to get used to having someone around to do things with. I've been on my own much too long and enjoy those times when I can visit family. Blue is a beautiful dog. I see he must be very gentle too as there was a cat nearby in that picture. It's always grand to see your lovely smile too! 'On Ya'-ma

My you have been busy, this week and got a lot of visiting done, bet Maurice is glad he is back at work and you'll soon get back into your old routine. Blue is a beauty, what breed is it?

Have a good Sunday

Good morning, Jan, or afternoon across the pond. I'm glad to hear Maurice is well enough to return to work. It sure must seem odd.

Blue is a beautiful dog. Floyd is also a cute kitty. And, of course, Kizzie can't let the other animals one up her. Have a lovely week. xx

Hi Jan, I think you might be a bit lonely this week with your beloved gone back to work I know I miss Stu on a Friday and I have him all week. I remember when I lived in Glenrothes (yes that's the place the other election is taking place this week) we used to do fashion shows and I loved it was slim in those days. Have started knitting fingerless glove for my cold mousing hand.lol

Hi Jan, I`m glad Maurice is now well enough to go back to work, it`ll probably seem strange without him at home. Is Blue a Pyranean Mountain Dog I wonder, he`s a real beauty. Love the photos even though you were taken by surprise. well done on the eyeshadows, a real bargain and extra Boots points. I have them and they soon add up. :o)

Love Sandra xxxxx
