Hello, I'm here. I had to go with my daughter to her biometrics appointment to renew her green card, since I went last year I went with her to show her where the place was, it was in North Carolina so a long trip, I had to leave at 5.30 so no time to say good morning earlier.

Did you have a good time with your friend, I can understand it feeling a bit flat now she's gone and it's back to the normal routine but she seems to visit quite regularly so I'm sure it won't be long before you see her again.

It is quiet here, maybe tomorrow will bring more people.

I think I'm going to take a little nap for a short while. have a good evening all x

Hello all sun has come out but still cloudy and windy, John has already been to liddles for some bits and pieces, I had about four hours sleep last night with a stuffed up nose couldn’t breathe, I have an appointment with the nurse practioner Thursday the 13th to see about my sinuses. In the meantime I am using sudafed nose spray when I go to bed I hate using anything but needs must so I relented and used some around 3am last night got a bit of sleep.

This morning up at six had a shower and breakfast and I have been parcelling up March swaps till now. Ready for posting. At 11am going to friend Molly up the lane for an hour. Then it’s dinner getting ready , and this afternoon don’t know what I shall do .
Roll on your results liz I hope you get some answers to help your elbow .

Sarah I hope to post your parcel Friday .

Well Linda, sounds as though you should rest......this weather doesn't help, but hope the sun shines for everyone soon.

District Nurse came in fairly early so I managed to get to coffee morning....another stranger joined us...apparently she has been up here 6 weeks and only just learned there is a coffee morning...heck...I had no idea we had a new neighbour..this goes for not having a structured committee...to welcome newcomers...however.....she has severe arthritis but would love to paint, so when I feel a bit stronger shall have an "off the cuff" introduction to watercolour afternoon......on a Wednesday when the hall is free.....take along my paper and paints, pencils etc..then end up with them drawing on spare bits of paper a landscape...done that before...at least pencils and scrap paper...but not letting them loose with my good paints and sable brushes....shall see what the reaction is and take it from there.....also see how my blood transfusions go tomorrow and ongoing treatments...etc...well...got to be positive.....

Afternoon ladies sorry to hear some of you are unwell.

Easter was a wash out with nothing but rain - still raining today. With the damp it’s making everywhere feel cold so on with the heating.
I suppose it could have been worse if the weather forecasters were right with all that snow expected from the Beast from the East. We got .....,,,, not a flake.

I’ve been working through some wool Linda sent and have made several squares for a charity called Hug in a Blanket. The squares are put together and a “sewer” joins them up and sends them on to the recipient with a covering letter.
They are given to people (who have been nominated) under 28 who have a severe disability/disabilities or have recently lost a close family member.

Some videos were posted on FB of people receiving their blankets and the look on their faces made it worth whole making the squares. It brought a little comfort to them. I’ll post a pic of squares I’ve done on knitty thread.

It’s lunchtime so better potter off to the kitchen.

Sending a big hug for everyone

Look after yourselves

Take care
