Hi Brian

So pleased you were able to get out with MrsB  both for the shopping and to pay respects to your mothers especially with Mothers' Day coming up this weekend.  I bought my Mum an orchid plant and left the card for the staff to open for her on Sunday as I will be visiting my daughter along with my son and family.

Renovations going well and have the plasterer here today and tomorrow and no nasty surprises to worry about so far!  'Dusty Barnett' made me chuckle but as was the case before I married,I am managing fine washing my hair over the kitchen sink ha  ha.  Will soon be back to normal and I do have the gym facilities to use too which is only  a 15 min walk away (been there today).  To be honest feel more sorry for the neighbours with the noise levels.

Great to know that Brianitus is still going strong. Love cashews but you can keep the pistachios ...never been a fan which was always good news for hubby as he had a batch to himself!!  I don't buy cashews very often as no will power to stop at the tiny amount allowed ha ha.

Have just been asked to take some photos at the gym (kind of Meet the Team shots) so just waiting for a suitable date.  Will make a change from my usual photos!!

Hope you and MrsB have a lovely weekend and that MrsB has a good Mothers Day herself. Kind thoughts and hugs returned my friends. Jules

Hi Jules,

Just a quick post to say Mrs B has been in hospital all day. She collapsed after breakfast and I had to call the ambulance. They think she may has gastro enteritus but heavens knows where she picked it up from.They have been busy pumping fluids into her all day. She is still in A,& E at the moment. They are trying to find a bed on one of the wards for her. They may be sending her home in the morning but wont knoe until then.

Will find out more in the morning hopefully. Worried the daylights out of me this morning.

Take care, Brian

Hi Jules, 

Thanks you.

I did have a busy day yesterday. I had to cancer three of Mrs B's appointments. Also I had to make arrangements for someone to take the subs at our woodclub last night as I went to the hospital to see Mrs B. Had to take this years copy of the woodclubs fire list to one of our committee which we all have to sign. picked up Mrs B's prescription. Also did the washing. Make you laugh now; took me twenty minutes to find out how to switch the washing machine on Give me a block of wood any day. Come home at 8.00pm and did the ironing. I now realize a womans work is never done.

Mrs B is okay in herself Its just that this bug has upset her diabetes, blood pressure and all her other problems so she has seen one consultant allready and has to see another one today. But she is getting very well looked after.

Have to run now for Ive got to put my shopping hat on and venture down the supermarket. I have had a list of things to do so I know she is getting better ha ha.

Take care, Brian

Hi Hazel, 

Thanks for that.

She is okay in herself. But she never makes a good patient Her blood sugar levels are high at the moment as she is still linked up to a drip so shes not able to do anything and like me she hates just sitting around. She cant wait to get home. 

With regards to the washing machine I've had to go out and buy myself a selt of L plates and another set for the iron.ha ha. I am able to cook for myself Chips, chips and more chips ha ha

Take care and thanks Hazel, Brian.

Hi Jules and Hazel,

Just had a phone call from Mrs B to say she is coming home this afternoon. They are bringing her home so will have the kettle on ready. Perhaps I can even hang up my L plates. I could her the joy in her voice and know she will be so glad to get home. 

Bett get the place tidied up or I shall be taking her place in the hospital ha ha. 

Take care folks, Brian.

Hi Brian,

Brilliant news that Mrs B is homeward bound and know she will really appreciate all your efforts and no doubt there will be a few chuckles at your 'new skills'. L plates indeed;I think a set of P plates are the order of the day (cost the same ha ha)  or maybe she can set you some homework to test your know how.  Fingers crossed that her diabetes will be stablised now but I know you will have your eagle eyes on her.

  Seriously it is never easy having to jump in at the deep end and I certainly have not learnt new DIY skills since hubby died  but come to rely on the 'tradesmen' and their skills! However my duster is being kept very busy whilst the refurbishment carries on.  Day off today as the tiles 'bond' but full steam ahead again tomorrow.

When the tiler arrived yesterday(booked by my plumber) it was a nice surprise to find I knew him.  He was in the same class as my daughter throughout her school years.........small world...............and he still recognised me!!

Hope you both have a more relaxed evening. Take good care.Jules

Oh, that's lovely news, Brian.  I hope you did actually put those L-plates on, it would have given her a good laugh when she got home, the best tonic.  Better hide the whites that have gone coloured and the scorched ironing though Wink 

Seriously, hope she feels much better now, you will have to spoil her for a few days, though I'm sure you will anyway without my advice! 

Take care both. 

Hazel xx

Good morning folks,

Thanks Jules, Hazel and George for your kind words. 

Its so nice to have Mrs B back home again but trying to slowher down is like trying to slow down a couple of full grown Shire hores in full trott  Its he main housework day today so as well as getting some more shopping for her and also getting another precription for her, I have been helping as much as I can. How she keeps going I dont know!!!!!!! I feel tired just watching her. 

I take my driving test of the washing machine next week (had a pre test today which I passed with flowing colours) under Mrs B's eagle eyesha ha.

She has got to go back to the hospital next Monday for a check up but its right on her dinnertime.

Take care everyone and thanks again, Brian..

Bless her, typical woman!  Good thing she has you, Brian, she's a lucky girl on that score.  Make sure you take care of yourself as well, though!
