It has been very hot here today, I am not fond of hot weather as I usually end up doing nothing, but today was a MIND ( it is a mental health charity) day and as I have decided to go to school on Thursday ( it is volunteers coffee morning) I went along. I don't always stay the whole time as I go and do a bit of shopping, go to the library just for some time to myself.

I have just come back from the doctors as I have had problems with my elbow for the last few weeks, well it turns out I have tennis elbow, I hope It gets better or I may have to have an injection.

It is craft group tonight and I want to go to return some magazines.

Not sure yet but may go to my mums tomorrow, don't really like going as she always tells me I am fat and should lose weight, she does not know the stress I have, also we do not like her partner who is a self centered person. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hey Elaine!
I understand the comments by your mother bothering you because I go through that with family members as well.
But, KNOW this: you are more than your weight even if that is all some see in you. You are bright, funny, caring, and friendly. I know this about you and have never seen you a day in my life. You have outstanding qualities that define you. Your weight is just one of those things. You are more than numbers on a scale. You are my friend.
"See" you soon.

Buses and Churches

Sunday, June 21, 2009

We went to Chatsworth House today for a bus rally(Michael Hobby) I like the house but it is too expensive to go too often, the park is lovely, there was free bus trips so I spent an hour in Bakewell ( one of the best stitch shops is here), yesterday me and a friend visited the church in Selston, it is an 11th century church and it is not very often it is open but there was a spring fair on, I brought 3 lovely pieces of Victoria sandwich cake Not good I know but I have been sensible today. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Not feeling good

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

It seems surprising how fast the days are going. The weather is horrible which matchers my feelings, Michael is still in bed and it is nearly two weeks again. Craft group was this morning not many there to start off with but more came later. I am making parchment cards with a little help from a friend( she photocopies patters for me and shows me how to use the equipment, not too good at it but hope to get better.

Thank goodness for friends don't know where I would be without them.

    Sorry to hear that you're having a tough time... it will get better.

Glad you were able to do your craft group. The parchment cards sound like fun.

Hope the sun shines soon!

School today

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

I have had a lovely morning with the children at school, I took a book about pizza in (story book) and we made models. There was a nasty incident when one of the children started throwing books about but I try to take no notice. But now it is time to go home, Michael is still in bed and I am trying very hard not to let it get to me.

I am having my hair cut this afternoon, I always like to keep it short then it is easier to deal with. Tonight I am hoping to go to craft group. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Soldier Day

Monday, June 15, 2009


I had a quietish sort of weekend, Michael is still in bed he has now been there for a week, yesterday he said he was bored but not sure what he expected me to do.
We had a special weekend in the village as we put the soldier back on our war memorial, it disappeared in the late 50's. There was a craft show, 1940's dance. It was a very nice day weather wise as well.
Did not do much else yesterday apart from write a letter. emoticon emoticon
