In my little world I have managed 9 hello's to new people as I have been all around the houses trying to sort something out on the phone plus saying hello to 2 newbies 1 kind delivery man who was good enough to return a box of butter as I had made the misstake of ordering 21 packs of butter instead of 2 haha & 1 gorgeous 3yr old visitor

Just wanted to say hello & good morning to gemini & anyone else reading this thread. As u may know I have to have a lot of bed & sofa rest. I have my little dog alfie & radio 2 to keep me company. I am lucky enough to have a warm (thank goodness for central heating) cosy little home & lovely neighbours not forgetting my 3 beautiful daughters,2 live in america & my baby lives up country. I'm getting very excited as my eldest is coming on 3rd dec for a month. I haven't seen her for 3 & a half yrs. then they will all be here for Christmas. They are renting beachside places.
Need to waffle as I lie here on the sofa & this thread seemed appopriate.
Hope u are safe & warm wherever u are & not affected by the floods.

i'm laying on sofa waiting for pain killers to kick in after sorting the recycling, cleaning the yard from alfies business & putting out the rubbish. I have arthritis in my back amongst other things but grateful i was able to do it as i have been completely out of action for a week bcos of fatigue from NHL cirrhosis & diabetes. Waffling on this great site has kept me happy so please don't apologise for telling me how u feel. I started this thread so i wouldn't keep hijacking others.
What do u do gemini to comfort yourself? X
You so kind hope the pain killers kick in soon horrible being in pain . I don't do nothing to comfort myself I don't stop I'm always on go since knowing about my mother I can't switch off my head is always racing it been getting to me . Went up my mothers yesterday she was fine we had few laughs she was tired because she had so many visitors. My partner gas engineering he works none stop. Waffling good thanks again you always make me laugh
Aww Bless u it does my heart good to know that i make u laugh. It is sooo hard to watch someone u love suffer. My 3 girls are worried sick about me that is why they are all coming home. I had a meltdown last sunday afternoon cos i was so tired of feeling so ill & worried about how i will cope with so many visitors as just 3 hrs with bro & his wife completely wore me out. The girls assured me that they would stagger visits. I got upset as as much as i want to have xmas dinner at the beach house with them & their partners i don't think I'll be able to. Still i live in hope!!
I also have a gammy leg & use a walking still so u can conjure up an image of this ol bird.
The pain meds have kicked & now feeling peckish that's one thing that isn't wrong with me my appetite mmm what shall i have for lunch. I am very grateful for online shopping & that I have lots of yummy grub
Btw i'm so glad u had laughs with your mum, precious moments!
When my bestie visited i showed her the youtube vid that makes me smile- Don't worry br happy by Bobby Macferren. I was sitting on sofa & she was dancing for me. Every time i think of that i smile no matter how tired i am. Treasured moments to remember
My faith is enormously important to me & i'm really looking fwd to 2 visits this week. 1 is a lovely lady Reverend & the other is from a lovely couple who run Micah Mobile Ministries. It will do me soooo much good to pray with others as i can't get to church
Have anyone got any ideas in what to buy a mother for Christmas present I don't know if it will be here last Christmas with us . I don't know what to do will I upset here if I buy here present. This Christmas should be the happiest ever it my first baby Christmas and I got this dreading feeling it's hard I don't know what do thanks
Hi gemini, it must be so hard for u. How about a beautiful framed photo of u & your gorgeous baby so she can look at u both whenever she wants.
One of my girls gave me a lovely photo of the 3 of them in a really pretty frame. It sits where i can see it from my sofa & i feel they are always with me.
I hope that helps. If your mum is anything like me she will treasure anything u get her. X
Had another thought. When my mother inlaw was at her end with bowel cancer I bought her a lovely crystal & hung it in her bedroom window so that when the sun shone she had rainbows around the room. She loved it. X
I know its an american thing but why not!!
I give thanks to God for my many Blessings & pray to Him to bring me strength of body & mind. I also give Thanks for my loved ones & to the NHS & to Cancer Resesrch.
Happy thanksgiving I would like to thank the hospital who give me ivf and it worked first time and give me my miracle baby boy I'm so blessed & my wonderful mother & father who always there for us love them both Thanks to you all on here who answered my post and supporting me through this nite mere I'm in big thank you
Hello all waffling woman here
My visitors on thursday did me the world of good. After a prayer session we sang Amazing Grace. Awe inspiring!!!
I just love being able to shop from my bed. Yesterday the rug I had ordered arrived & I'm sooo happy with it. It's to go infront of the sofa to cover up a hole in the carpet which Alfie had made when I first had him. I recently spilt a whole cup of coffee too so online i went. I had to put it outside to air it off as it smelt of chemicals & didn't want that smell under my nose. Luckily it was a sunny day. It was a neighbours birthday & I joked with her that I had laid the red carpet out for her. So u can imagine it the carpet is sand coloured & the rug a claret red patterned one. When another neighbour- the nail technician who used to hang out with my youngedt girl when they were young- came in to glue a thumb nail which had split far too low she said her parents had similar rugs all over the place. I said tis not an old lady's style but Persian
Thanks to Gemini for telling me to waffle on.
Btw has anyone heard from cococat as i havn't seen any posts from her recently. Hopefully she is just busy with xmas preps.
Try & have a good weekend
Love from cornwall xxx
Resting in bed now. Chocolate n coffee cake cooling. It was an experiment bcos last weeks choc cake was dry especially as i make it low butter cos of fatty liver & use Splenda as a sugar alternative bcos of diabetes. Anyway to combat dryness & being a coffee lover (filter) i put in 3/4 of a mug of coffee (with milk) I shall try it when I'm rested with a cup of rosy lee.
I'm so Blessed with my neighbours. I was talking to one as I stood at my front door & we heard our robin singing from the aerial which I can't see from my door. So I went barefooted down the path to have a look at robin who flew away when I was in sight. Ouch! I had trodden on a tiny piece of gravel. Where are your slippers my elderly neighbour asked. I haven't got any as I had thrown mine out ages ago & I like being barefoot indoors. I went & sat on the sofa with the front door open for fresh air, when she bought a blue pair of moccason type slippers for me to try on. They fitted perfectly & she said she didn't wear them anymore as they kept slipping off. Another example of "If God do not give e do send" I shall take her in some cake later as she wants to try it as she's diabetic too.
Have I waffled your ears off yet?
Hi seabird you can't beat shopping online I have done all the baby and my mothers Christmas shopping online . It takes there stress out of shopping in town and I can't handle when shops are packed I suffer with anxiety . I been wondering about where cococat is hope here father ok . Just haven five tree up back window done got front to do later baby sleeping in bed with is daddy it's hard work trying to do something with baby lol . Hope you feeling ok sun is shining here little bit cold at least is dry . I thing you should change world hello day to everyday waffling day x
Lol gemini I like that ' every day waffling day' if I can work out how to change it maybe I will but still like world hello day.
What a lovely picture u paint of daddy sleeping with baby & u putting up the decs.
When I was little the decs were always put up the eve before my birthday so when I came down the stairs the first thing I saw was a paper parrot lampshade double excitement!!
Btw the cake was delish, couldn't taste the coffee but it is nice & moist.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend x
As u recomended gemini I changed the title of this thread to your suggestion
Cococat we are thinking of u & praying for u your dad & family xx
Well tis waffling time again. I'm laying on sofa wrapped up in my shaggy, fleece throw waiting for my feet to stop threatening to cramp. I must stop going to raves been making salmon pies. I have started to use food I am lucky enough to have in the freezer to make room for xmas fare.
Steamed the salmon then sprinkled finely chopped spring onions over the salmon chunks. Added salt ground black pepper & coriander from jar. Made a cheat sauce by mixing creme fraise with milk poured ontop then madhed spud. So thats tonights & tomorrows dinner sorted
I'm on bed rest for the afternoon which is the norm for me. Even tho i'm on pain meds am still 'ouching' & the only way to stop the pain is to lie down but I have a lovely comfy bed that my girl & her hubby bought me when she visited in june (the one who lives in florida)
sorry u didn't get much sleep last night hope u managed 40 winks this afternoon altho it sounds as if uou've been a busy christmas fairy. How old is your boy? I used bonjela when mine were teething but that was a million yrs ago!! Apart from Vick rubbed on his chest try putting a bowl of water with 6 drops of olbas oil in it in his room. There again u are probably doing all the right things & I'm just a babbling old dinasuar. It's really good of your hubby to help out with your parents especially as he doesn't get much time off.
No I haven't noticed cococat being around, perhaps she is having a break or is busy.
Hope your lights stay up x
