Sending best wishes for his speedy recovery Kerri. I hope they get on top of that infection quickly. Bad mannered children are one of my bugbears. You'll usually find where they get it from when you encounter their parents too.

I have Alfie at differing times depending on what shifts my niece and her partner are working. Sometimes it can be 7.30 until about 4pm and sometimes not until 8.15 until either 4pm or 6pm. Some weeks it can be three days and others only one or two. He was very good yesterday thankfully. Full of beans but not in brat mode. lol He'll get less exhausting as he gets a bit older. I hope.

Sounds like a very colourful character Geru whatever the explanation for the attire.

Thinking of your Hubby Kerri.  I hope he has a speedy recovery.

Yeah, I'm sure Alfie will eventually calm down.  But will you survive it until then? lol.

I haven't done much this last couple of days.  Weather so blasted dull.  And the wind was so bad the day before yesterday, even though the sun was out, when I took Louie out, that he was terrified and rushed back home the moment we turned around.

No wind today, just chilly and dull. 

I was going to pop to the top of the road shops this morning, but then realised that I needed more than just a light bag full, so ordered on line.  Managed to get a slot for early tomorrow morning, so will just have to scrummage around this evening for a meal.  I will probably end up making a tuna pasta or something similar.

I've been seeing Martha's photos on Facebook.  She is off on the road, stopping where she fancies I should imagine and thoroughly enjoying herself.  Wish I was with her. It looks like so much fun.

Sounds like Martha is enjoying her freedom Sandy. I'm with you and wouldn't mind joining her. Not sure I've got that kind of energy though.

It's supposed to be cloudy but dry all day today after a few wet and very windy days. It's blue sky and was close to a frost when I got up so who knows.

Had a quiet and lazy weekend watching a box set. Back to the grindstone this morning. I need to clean upstairs before lunch with my sister as usual. No Alfie today so at least I won't have to wrestle him off the vac too. lol He's a menace for attacking it and loves running off with the dusters when I'm polishing as well. He's at the vet's for the snip on Thursday. Maybe that will stop him trying to hump everyone and everything at least.

True.  Oatmeal is a good standby too.

Hi all poppy in people.

I've just been out for a short run on my scooter with Margaret on hers and with Louie on my lap.  It's not a bad afternoon down here. 

I have now promised myself that I will sort all my kitchen cupboards out and move things around to see if I can organise it all better.  Will do a cupboard or two at a time.  Or I could just sit down and read some more of my book.

Warmed up nicely yesterday and the sun stayed out so much more pleasant than expected. Today has started the same. Chilly but sunny so fingers crossed another nice day is coming up.

Beth brought Alfie down to our friend's yesterday. She's working nights which is why I haven't got the pup for a few days. My sister-in-law came to have her hair cut too so that made five of us and the two pups.

Cleaning downstairs this morning, when I actually force myself to move, then visiting my brother after lunch.

I made the first move on the kitchen today by cleaning out one cupboard and turning that into one shelf for Louie's possesions, and one for tools.  This has left a very small cupboard empty to move overflow of stored cleaning materials into.

Weather is nice and spring like again today so it was a fairly long walk along the top of the beach front.  A second walk a while later and then a quick sit out the back garden yacking to Margaret.

Charlie obviously popped into for a cuppa.  He is actually working in a flat on the next floor up as that chap moved out and in with his lady friend.

For me now it's a read of my book and then if it doesn't suddenly rain another short walk after.

Sorry. lol Had my granddaughter and her partner visiting yesterday. Today my daughter and her partner are visiting and staying overnight. I also had the pup yesterday. He was neutered on Thursday and arrived sporting an inflatable collar which he wasn't best pleased about. He was full of beans though and the biggest challenge was stopping him bursting his stitches.

We've had a couple of pretty wet days but this morning it's sunny and chilly. Supposed to get to 10C later though. Not summery but at least sunny and dry.

Not a lot happening my end either at the moment.

I did see my two girls yesterday for lunch out and a look around a couple of shops.  I was only expecting Jess, but Aimee turned up with her as well which was a nice surprise.

I bought myself a couple of good quality T-shirts along with a nice spring type sweater.

Louie is on a form of a diet, in as much as any and all types of human food for treats is possitively out, along with more walking.  It's been 5 days now that I have been strict.  He was beginning to get rather round and heavy, and because of the human food treats he was needing his anal glands cleaned out by shorter periods.

I never actually weighed him before I started this, but while I remember I will go weigh him now.


Edited to say - Bugger the battery has gone in my scales and I don't have a replacement.  It will have to wait until I get to the shop next time.

Hi everyone.

My granddaughter, Anna, came over yesterday
and planted herbs I had bought for her, into pots on my patio.
She planted basil, rosemary, oregano, thyme, sage, lavender
and two sweet 100s cherry tomato plants.

This morning I took Isabella to an indoor play area.
She laughed and ran and bounced and had so much fun.

I'm just going to relax now
and maybe watch something on Netflix.

Hope everyone has a peaceful rest of the day!

Well, I had a very quiet holiday weekend.  Did no housework though.  Just reading, watching some recorded programmes and played on the comp.

The other day I came across a list of housework chores for the 50s housewife.  Today for fun, I decided I would follow it all to the letter and see just how long I would be working for before I got some time to myself.

Obviously some of the things I couldn't do, such as taking the kids to school, so I substituted that with taking the dog for a walk.  Shopping I did on line so took Louie for another walk instead of that.

It ended up with me finally finishing all I had to do on the list, at 3pm.  Although I have to say I didn't start until gone 9am, and the working woman in the 50s would have got up a lot earlier than that.  And living on my own with no kids and no husband obviously there wasn't as much tidying, making beds and such as they would have had.

Charlie arrived just after I had finished all of that and stayed for almost an hour, so it's now too late to have an afternoon kip so going to now have a read.

Just the laundry was a nightmare back then.

It's raining and cool today. I'm staying home. I've been out for the last couple of days and got several appointments coming up next week but until then I have nothing urgent I need to do so I'm going to enjoy some quiet days with no visitors staying. I hope!

Anna will love watching those plants grow Kerri. Smile

Have you managed to weigh Louie yet Sandy?

I didn't own a washing machine until 1980.  Before that I had to do it all by hand, including all of Sarah's towel nappies.  Sheets I used to fill the bath up with hot soapy water and then would climb in with bare feet and legs and stomp it walking up and down.  I did have a spinner standing at the bottom of the bath and would then transfer the sheets into the spinner, spin them and then rinse them in the same way in the bath.

Nappies were soaked in a bucket of nappisan.  Then washed.  That stuff kept her nappies pure white until the day she never needed them.  Brilliant stuff.

I'm expecting a shop delivery at about midday and I have a new battery coming in that for the scales, so will weigh Louie this afternoon.  And myself of course.

It rained heavy in the night, and I had to pop quickly to the top of the road this morning thinking I might have to dodge the drops but it had stopped by the time I walked up there.

Not sure if I will give the living area a good clean today, moving furniture etc, to hoover under and so on, or do the kitchen.  Whichever I do today I will do the other tomorrow.  I want to make a start on cleaning all the kitchen wall tiles and will do an area over several days.  The bathroom was done yesterday.

I ended up going out to lunch with Jess and then back to mine for her to give me a nail treatment.

I've never let her do my nails before and she was really shocked that I finally gave in to all of her begging.

I obviously chose the colours and style and I am well pleased with them.

They look great Sandy. She made a good job of them.

Nothing interesting happening in my world right now. I'm just back from grocery shopping. Bought the cat a toy that dispenses treats and has a couple of feathers on it to pique her interest. She keeps checking it out but is still a bit wary of it. She's very picky about toys but she loves her feathers on a fishing rod and I think she may succumb to this one eventually too. I also bought chews for the pup and food for the cat. I suspect the bill for critters ended up more than that for my food but oh well. I don't buy treats that often.

Louie has loads of toys but only plays with the furry ones.  I assume he just loves the feel of them in his mouth.  When one or more of those gets too foul I replace it, but other than that the only new toys he gets are when the girls treat him, which is quite often.

My new friend Pearl from upstairs has been knocking on my door each day as she passes with her now 5mth old Yorkie, in the hopes that Louie can start getting used to getting close to another dog without freaking out.

Up to now he has only been able to look at the pup through the dog gate I have at my front door.  But today we took them both over the field opposite.  Her little one was off the lead so that he could run away from Louie if he got nervous and I kept Louie on his extending lead, but left it loose at all times.  Louie was pretty good.  He chased the pup as dogs do but as soon as he got really close he did his usual scream at him.  But pup was able to keep his distance when needed.   It seemed that both dogs enjoyed themselves and Pearl and I are going to keep trying for better from Louie before attempting him off the lead.

Other than that I am sort of pottering today and will do a bit of reading and anything else that takes my fancy.

Hi everyone.

Your nails look lovely, Sandy!
How nice that you have someone to do them for you.

Nice, that you spoiled your animals a little, Wendy. Smile 

I got off work early today and had to get the oil
in my car changed.
He said my filter was dirty (He showed it to me)
and so I bought a new filter, too. 
It's always something, isn't it.

It rained for two days
but now we finally have sunshine today.

I'm doing laundry right now.
My husband is home from the hospital
and has a roast in the oven.
I'm so happy to have him here.

My granddaughter, Isabella, has her First Communion
tomorrow. So I'm going to that.

Hoping to have a relaxing evening
after I finish the laundry.

Geru, 
I hope your weather warms up soon.

Have a lovely rest of the day, Everyone!

Yup, it's always pay out with cars.

So pleased for you both that Hubby is home.  I hope your Granddaughter enjoyed her first communion.

I've just popped to the chemist on my faster 8mph scooter which I am loving.  In a short while I'm going across to a resident in one of the other blocks to see if she wants my 6mph one, as she mentioned the other day that she would love one to nip down onto the beach front with.  She can't walk down there on her own two feet so never gets down there.

All day yesterday I thought it was Saturday until Jess text me last night to ask if I want to go to a food fair with her and Adam on Sunday.  I said it's Sunday tomorrow, "No Nan, it's Saturday tomorrow".  What a twit I am.

Great to have your hubby home again Keri. Cooking too. Smile Enjoy the communion.

Yep. Always something with my car too. It's a bottomless pit. I'll have to give it up eventually but for now I like the convenience.

Nice to be able to pass the scooter on to somebody who'll appreciate it Sandy. Glad you're enjoying your new one. Good luck with Louie. Slowly but surely hopefully.

The morning started off lovely and sunny but it's just hammered it down. I'm glad I didn't get caught in that sudden downpour.
