Good morning Mick and everyone from Carlisle where we are having very heavy showers. I've just got back from a top up shop at Sainsbury's. I have felt driven to go back to mask wearing having heard the latest covid statistics and noticed a definite increase in others doing so too. Still a minority though. I'll probably take a break from gardening today, go for a walk, showers permitting, and catch up with a backlog of reading.

Organising the taking of all those medications must be a real intellectual exercise Marydoll! I hope you are let loose soon.

Have a good weekend, everyone, and wishing all the poorly better days.

Good to hear the news about your DH Kalu hopefully he will be well enough to come home soon.

Good morning Mick and all from a mixed up weather wise northwest coast.
Enjoyed art yesterday, abstract with water spray etc., the picture just seems to make itself. Then on to run through with guitarist before showing my blotchy red legs to the chemist in Boots who didn’t seem to know what it was, advised taking a photo and using some moisturiser. I’m out for meal and drinks tonight so it’s a long dress and panstick methinks..
grandMattie 💐🙏🏻 and thoughts to those with DDs having treatment and all with worries of any kind.

Sorry to hear about your fall Blossoming it must have shaken you up. Take it easy today. Yes I think you are thinking on the right lines about Urms we miss her.

Marydoll you must wonder what each day will throw at you. Take care 💐

I have a bit of foggy brain today so sorry if have missed anyone but sending love and thoughts.
Glad to hear your DH is out of HDU Kalu I’m sure your visit will perk him up.
Had a change of plan here as I’m not feeling too brilliant. I’d taken paracetamol and thought I’d feel better but I don’t so I’m going back to bed. Thankfully GS hadn’t been told about today so Granddad has taken him out to the park.

Marydoll Sat 02-Jul-22 10:26:31

Marydoll glad you are being looked after. Are you sure those pills aren’t interacting with each other and causing problems?
Gwen, they are frequently tweaked to prevent this happening, if possible.
Sadly everyone is necessary.

Kalu, glad to read your news about your DH.
Blossoming, sorry to hear of your fall, take it easy. 💐

Good morning all from grey, damp Harrogate
My thoughts are with you grandMattie hope you get some rest.
Marydoll glad you are being looked after. Are you sure those pills aren’t interacting with each other and causing problems?
Yesterday I went to the hospital physio then did some shopping after.
Today I am treating myself to a DIY manicure and pedicure! After the housework that is. Hope those who are ill are feeling better today.
When are you in Nidd Hall Mick that’s just a couple of miles from me.
Have the best day possible folks

Kalu I’ve just read the good news about your DH. Best wishes for hi continued recovery.

luluaugust Sat 02-Jul-22 09:45:33

Good morning from a sunny, blowy W Kent. Off to buy a newspaper and some cakes as DS is coming over later to help DH move some boxes around before DD1 arrives next week. More tennis for me I think.
Best wishes to gM, Marydoll and glad your daughter is home Kitty
To everyone out and about enjoy your day.

Blossoming Sat 02-Jul-22 09:44:50

Good morning Mick and all. It’s raining in my corner of Lancashire, currently 13°C.

I am propped up on pillows with a mug of tea. I had a fall yesterday and am feeding battered and bruised so will take it easy today.

Missing Urms, is she with the crumpet queen?

Hope today brings some happiness and comfort to all.

hulahoop Sat 02-Jul-22 09:17:56

Good morning from our caravan in a rather damp Brixham. Enjoying the company of our friends and getting out and about.
Unfortunately our youngest Grandson ( 14 months) had an allergic reaction on Thursday and has developed croup..
He had to go to A &E where he was given steroids and will be referred to the allergy department. Till then all products containing nuts or traces of have been removed from their house and all labels on food must now be carefully read until they can confirm.
His big brother has had tonsillitis this week too. Worrying, especially when you are too far away to help.

Thoughts with all others who are poorly or dealing with others who are.

🙏 for GM and family and all others having a tough time too

Nannagarra Sat 02-Jul-22 08:59:01

Thinking of you Mattie and hoping the Crossroads carer turns up tonight. Look after yourself.

baubles Sat 02-Jul-22 08:52:35

Good morning all from South Lanarkshire where it’s raining yet again.

My call yesterday from the high heid yins at work was fine, they were actually very supportive which was lovely.

Mary it sounds as if everyone is looking after you, relax and let them. Thinking of you and your family Mattie.

Another quiet day ahead in baubles towers, I’ll try to get a little walk if the weather allows.

Thoughts with all those coping with illness or worries.

Kalu Sat 02-Jul-22 08:50:43

So happy to hear your DD is home kitty and I sincerely hope whatever unsettling news you have of your brother can be turned around to better news. x

Good morning from a dull East Yorkshire.

My lunch at the Greek yesterday was disappointing. I’ve been there several times before and it’s usually delicious. It was just my choice really (Spanakopita) and despite bringing me a different portion it was only slightly better. They were most helpful and I eventually changed it to a chicken skewer. They also only charged me for my drinks so
I was generous on the tip.

Today we are taking GS out to a little place on the coast. We have to fit it in with the busy lives they have! So despite the weather he will love having a run on the beach, throwing pebbles and being generally spoilt! We will stop for lunch at a pub on the way back. Then I will hopefully have a date with Rafa this afternoon on our return.

Enjoy your meal Shazza we’ve been there it’s lovely. The day we went it was sunny and we sat outside.
Bluesapphire that hotel is my favourite coffee spot on the marina.

Love to the GM family and all the support you now have.
Take care everyone.

Kalu Sat 02-Jul-22 08:46:09

Good morning everyone from a light greyish Glasgow, hopefully some sunshine will follow.

Although I have nursed many patients, post op, being on the other side of the fence floored me on Thursday when I saw my darling DH at the day two, post op slump stage. What a difference a day makes indeed. Both DDs ordered me to stay home and rest yesterday. Regular updates lifted my spirits as our girls reported signs of steady improvements during their visits, twice yesterday and eventually messages from DH arrived reassuring me he was feeling 100% back on track followed by wonderful news he was well enough to leave HDU and be taken back to his room shortly Phew! I leapt out of bed, well kind of 😁 with a new spring in my step this morning. Heartfelt thanks again to all who offered kindness and support. It meant so much to me and our family. Much love. 💞

I am holding you in my heart and thoughts GM 💐

Thank you also for you kind wishes Marydoll especially as you are going through such an awful time yourself at the moment. Always here if and when you need me xx

Gentle hugs and strength to others with their own difficult times with hopes, everyone finds positives in their day.

Good morning from sun and cloud in S Hants, it feels fresh.
We had our whole house done about 7 years ago Blue it was hell at the time, but so worth it. We have the grandchildren this afternoon for 24 hours as it’s my daughter’s birthday tomorrow so she’s got an open house party today. I’ll have to sneak in some sport when we’re in, tennis, cricket and GP this weekend, spoilt for choice.
My thoughts are with you grandMattie.
Have your best day all with a 🦩 or 🦩🦩

Good morning from cloudy Leicestershire.

I had my annual call from my consultant yesterday. I will stop taking my daily tablet where I have to sit upright for an hour in March. He will ring me again in 2 years! It’s the oncologists turn next year!

Hoping it doesn’t rain as I am going Nordic walking again this morning. I am going with a different group in the woods I can see from my bedroom window - softer landings.

I hope your help comes tonight Mattie.
👋 Urms I hope you are okay.
Hoping kitty’s DD is home.

Wishing everyone the best day possible.

kittylester Sat 02-Jul-22 08:21:38

Good morning all from a greyuish North Leicestershire.

I need to go to the florist this morning and to post some birthday cards while I am in the village. This afternoon we are watching Bertie in a football tournament so hope the rain holds off.

DD1 is home now (thank you for all the good wishes - they worked) but we had quite unsettling news about one of my brothers.

Sending love and support to everyone who needs it.

Ali23 Sat 02-Jul-22 08:16:22

Good morning everyone. The sun is peeping through the curtains. Not sure if it will last all day. We had a sunny day yesterday then a drenching downpour, which moved on as quickly as it came!

Marydoll, I think your GP has had a brainwave there , adding the biologics on for information. I had to write them on DH’s repeat prescription last week, in readiness for his trip abroad, just in case he was taken ill and I thought how useful it would be for them all to be typed up together.
I hope that your blood tests turn out ok.

GM 💐 for your family.

I’m getting ready to hold a craft and gift stall tomorrow at an open gardens village event in aid of GEMS, a Leicestershire charity that helps people on chemotherapy. 🤞 for people at the gardens, and 🌞 and 💴.

Enjoy your weekend.

brook2704 Sat 02-Jul-22 08:09:19

Good morning everyone from Cawsands which is just west of Plymouth, it’s a bit grey and drizzly this morning but not cold

Sending ❤️💐 gMattie to you and all your family

Your day sounds really good fun Gingster enjoy!
We’re off to find some breakfast somewhere soon - a little cafe on the quayside hopefully
Fingers crossed for good results with the blood tests on Monday marydoll
Hi to any missing posters 👋
Take care all whatever the day brings 💐

BlueSapphire Sat 02-Jul-22 08:04:31

Good morning everyone from a slightly overcast Northampton, with showers forecast this afternoon.

Had a lovely meal out with the family last night to celebrate younger DD's 12th birthday. Where has the time gone?

Shall try to dodge the showers this afternoon as I have a John Lewis order to puck up at Waitrose. Nothing else planned for today

Shazza, reading your posts from Hull reminds me of the time we spent there while ferrying DD up and down to university for three years. Fond memories of the weekends we stayed at the hotel overlooking the marina, and wandering around the shopping centre opposite.

Thinking of grandMattie and her family today.

cornergran Sat 02-Jul-22 08:02:14

You definitely win in the medication stakes marydoll. smile. Sounds as if you’re under guard, a good thing too. Love and positive thoughts heading your way. Will have everything crossed for those blood tests on Monday.
