Yes, after yesterday I too have had a bit of a lazy day. Just the normal chores and I have a little bit of ironign to do but other than that we had some leftoverchicken and pasta soup from the other day so amde do with that and a slice of home made cake for lunch. We wil fininsh the last of the trifle for tea and have a little dinner of chicken, stuffing, potaties and brussel sprouts tomorrow. Mum and I are makeing the most of things because as of 8th January it is back to the strict diet regimen. We will see how long Mum can last this time before starts moaning. As for me I am determined to carry it through until I reach my target. I reckon i have put on a couple of pounds over the festive season but not as much as I feared.

Now, talk about me and my big mouth. earlier is aid that the snow had gone and we wereleft with the ice. Just after that, Mary gave me a hair cut and I looked roound to see the snow was back, albeit not fo too long. However, we are expecting more tonight again so that is not good falling on top of the already frozen ground.

Anyhow, the fire is on and I don't think I will be going to the hospital tonight. i am not sure of the visiting rota but I think it will be Trish who goes and I will be going tomorrow as she goes to her BF's on a Wednesday.

I am with you in that after physio oyu always feel shattered. It doesn't hurt the person adminiering the physio so they don't seem to care too much. However, I know how it feels having recently gone through it myself. Fortunately, doing the exercises regularly does build you up and I have found that although it never gets easier, it doesn't get any harder exceot that you tend to try and do more as you get a bit fitter. Keep it going and you will soon feel the benefits.

Take it easy, though and don't tryand do too much. I have made that mistake in the past and hopefully have learned from it. You wil also have Sherry on your case if you overdo it. I did and you can also ask Wispy!

Take care and have a nice easy day.

Hi Mac so nice to hear you had a great day. sounds absolutely marvelous. I love days like that because you tend to get so caught up in the bustle that you become like ships passing in the night. Glad your FIL is doing so well. It is always such a relief when they are able to be in a regular ward isn't is??
I hope that you have a great day today. I am going to take it fairly easy as am always very tired after the physio even though all I do is lay there while she works over every muscle. Have supper planned, scalloped potatoes and chicken breasts. not sure about the vegetable but I think brussel sprouts and carrot's. have to think of what the wee ones will eat well the alarm will be going off in a few minutes so better start getting ready to go out. will be back later this afternoon.

Go afternoon ladies.

Well, the snow has stopped but the ice has formed and it is lethal on the paths. The council ran out of grit and salt so nothing is getting done.

The reason i was not in yesterday was because yesterday turned into a really fantastic day.

We were only going to go out to do some top up shopping but, for a change, we all got a bit lazy and had a lie in. By the time everyone was up and had gone through the morning routines, it was getting a bit late. Mum immediately said why don't we go out for lunch and then do the shopping, so we did. In the end we must have spent a good couple of hours in the restaurant as it was so relaxing and the food was also extemely good.

Having relaxed we piled into the car and went to the supermarketwhere it took us nearly half an hour to get a parking slot, the duisabled bays being totally ignored and cars being parked whereverthere was a space. Once parked we discoverd that all the electric shopping trolleys were in use and also, trish was not very well because she ahd trapped a nerve in her back. So I used my chair and Mary got ne of the shop chairs which she attacehd a trolley to. We spplit up for the shop as I wanted to look at shoes and cordless telephones, ours being on the blink. As I found what I wanted fairly quickly then went in search of the others. I found Mum quitre easily but gave up on Mary and Trish who had all but disappeared ion the mayhem of the post Christmas shopping period. I think everyone was trying to stock back up in preparation for the New year parties judging by the number of people O saw carting alcohol and party food. I decided that it would be as well to wait by the entrance, which is where Mary and Trish caught up with me. We went to get my shoes and phone and by this time Mum had finished, so we were glad to get out and back into the car to come home.

Once home it was fuss Lucky who is always big on greeting me after I have been out. He had to be let out and then given his food. I also had a pile of my FIL's ironing to do so I go on with that. There was three lots of washing to get done as he was running out of lcean things so that took a while. By the time I had that done it was time for Mary to go to the hospital to visit him. I was that tired, (pleasantly so for a change and not just physically), that I decided to go and relax in a nice bubble bath, which I have to admit did my back a lot of good, especially as it was quite sore because of standing for so long in one place.

So, what a really good day and by the time I had got out of the bath Mary a nd trish were home and we al sat and had a good natter after which it was time o call things off for the day and retire to bed.

It has bewen a long time since we all were together for such a day and I hope that we can repeat it in the near future. I bought Mary a new outfit as part of her Christmas presents and Mum has said that after we are done with the dentist, (which will take both of us into February), we are all going to get dressed up and go out for the evening.

The end of the year has been really good after what happened to my FIL. I just hope it is an omen for things to come in 2010.

I will be in later to catch up with you all.

We are -2 again so the ice will still be there for the time being, (unless our Council decide to get their act together and purchase some more grit!). It feels a lot colder, however, but that does not stop Lucky from wanting out all of the time. He loves to eat the snow, which is just as well because his outside water bowl is frozen solid.

See you all in a while.

Well my computer has bit the dust sad to say. I think it will have to go away to be fixed if that is even possible.

I had so much stored on it. Dont tell me I know I should back up my work...... that is one thing I am still NOT DOING. pERHAPS this time I will learn the lesson if I lose everything.

I am on the old desktop. I am hoping it will stand up to the task of being here for me till I get fixed up again. I think I will need to get another laptop. Like you Sherry it is absolutely my life line.

Have a great day girls. I am back on Day 2 of cal counting and feeling good. All the rich food was wonderful, but it sure is OK being back on salads - its summer here. Think Ill make a lemon mousse today. It is really low cal.

Love to all.

Hi everyone! Well Christmas has came and gone. It didn't feel much like the holiday to me. Probably because I wasn't able to do all the things I usually do this time of year. No baking, didn't put up the outside lights, etc, etc. I can't help but hope that next year will be better. My neurologist is sending me for a second opinion. If they agree with my myasthenia diagnosis, then I start on prednisone. I know I'll feel better then.

Hi everyone. Well my laptop has died a thousand deaths. Ive been chatting to a repair man on line who seems to think it will need to go away. So hoping that wont mean wiping it, or worse yet having to get a new one.

Im on the old desk top, but it is doing funny things too. So if Im not around for a while you will now I am safe and sound just "lineless".

Have to tell you Sherry I made my version of Sex in a Pan, and I dont know about Robert Redford, lol, but I have never eaten anything so delicious in all my life. Sad to say the thought of one slice wouldnt even have touched the sides, so I enjoyed every morsel. It is sooooooooooooo good.

I had three wonderful days of eating all the things I had wanted to try and had such a good time. Today I am back on track with cal counting with a lot of lovely happy memories.

Love to you all. Wispy.

Well ladies, for me it was the perfect end to the day. My FIL is now in one of the main wards and is among some guys who have a cracking sense of humour. The nurse on duty tonight was absolutely marvellous. She had a way of saying that look i am the boss but in such a way that everyone could not help but like her. My FIL was certainly in good spirits when we saw him and we laughed and joked for nearly an hour and a half before he started to yawn, so we came away then.

It has been a really cold but crisp day here. The snow has finally stopped and we are not expecting any more for a while; at leasst that s what the weather people are saying. Theonly downside is that temperatures are not going to be very high so that everything is going to freeze. We had to call round to my FIL's house to get him some clothes and the roads where helives were like a skating rink. Mary had to really drive gingerly. Up here is not too bad atthe moment. One or two hairy moments going down the hill and if the gritters do not get out tonight then it really is going to be fun tomorrow morning as there are pools of luying water as well as the slush on the road. Unfortunately we have to go to the shops in the morning to get some stuff for the New Year's Eve meal. Whether Mum will come with us is highly unlikely as she is not too steady on her feet at the best of times so she is scared stiff in this, and I cannot blame her. I nearly ha an accident just getting out of the car and in to my chair this evening as my shoe touched on some black ice and slidwhich nearly sent me backwatds intote car door. Fortunately Mary was on hand and mnaged to steady me but it was not a very nice moment.

Still, we moan when we do not have a white Christmas and we moan when we do. We re fickle folk who will never be satisdfied I suppose. The kids are having a ball though and there are snowmen everywhere at the moment. mind you, it was quite funny the other day. My youngest grandson and my neice's boy are in their first season where ther is snow. They saw the others throwing snowballs and decided to join in. They picked up some snow and immediately droped it again. 'UURRRRGGH!' was the cry. Yes, kids, it is cold and slushy. They did not bother after that.

So, it is time for me to call it a night andf go to bed with a book and a nice cup of coffee. In reply to the bit about the chocolates, I hardly got any this year because I specifically told people NOYT to get me any. Mary got me some and I had some shortbread biscuits but other than that everyone took heed. I certainly did not want a repeat of last year when i had so many i ended up giving some away as I simply could not eat them all, especially as I was just starting outon my diet. I seem to remember at least five boxes which were all the same from different people. I know I am a confessed chocoholic but even that was too much for me. I am pleased tat the message got through so that I do not feel so guilty about the few that I have eaten over the last couple of days.

Anyhow, soon time for the New Year to kick in and for me to get back to my strict diet andexercise regimen as i am determined to finally achieve my goal by the summer.

Will look forward to catching up with you all and all the gossip tomorrow.

Enjoy the remainder of your day or evening.

Teresa, temperatures like we have t the moment are quite normal for us during the winter months. What we haven't had for a few years now is this much snow. In fact we hardly ahd any here last year. However, despite what you may think, we never really ghet used to it but do carry on with our lives. A little bit of snow may put the railways out and the services may slow down, but the British public is made of sterner stuff. What i cannot imagine is how Sherry survives. Now Canada is what you call cold!! Also, they have snow every year and not just a foot or so, and they still manage. I do know what you mean though. Living in Saudi Arabia for a number of years certainly gave us a reality check when we finally returned home to live. The temperatures on the Gulf were never lower than high teens and that was in the winter. We woould have a bar-b-que in the garden come Christmas Day and that became 'normal'.

As for the food; I also have a stomach which is slightly rebelling. Too much over the last couple of days so I am keeping it really simple from now on. We do have a lot of leftovers though, so I will be making use of them but in a more controlled way.

Take it eas. We can all sit abck and relax now. Oh, for New Year's Eve, it is a tradition in our house for steak pie, chips, (french fries), and garden peas for supper and I will see the bells in with a wee dram.

Catch you later.

Wispy - I am with you - DAMAGE control is much needed around this house as well emoticon my main issue has been the richness of the foods as now my stomach is trying to rebel againest me and of course the moment you put sweets in your mouth - that ugly ol "sweet tooth" screams for more - so guess I will need to spend a few days sedating "It" with veggies and proteins emoticon
On the upside sounds like Everyone enjoyed their families and festivities - New Year around here means snacks and board games however we just recently recieved the Biggest Loser cookbook so perhaps we can find some low cal snacks in that
course we will probably be snoring logs before Jan 1 actually gets here emoticon
Have a Great Sunday Everyone

Mac and Cinny - Ya'll are making me cold - I can't even imagine temperatures like that - and you all get out in weather like that - burrrr and we complain about the 30's and teens at night - it must be a different climate to tolerate temps like that
seriously I can imagine those negative digits -
Please stay warm if possible

Teresa

Good morning one and all.

yes Ginny, we have had some bad weather and what is worse, the council underordered on the grit so they are waiting for the new supplies to arrive. That means our road is low priority so we have to rely on the occasional bit of traffic to clear it. We had another few inches fall in the night and it is snowing on and off at the moment. We are expecting this to last all day. We are now well over the foot mark for snowfall ad Lucky is in seventh heaven as he loves to play in it.

Wispy, how're ya doin'? Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and I know what it will mean to lose the PC. It is like losing an arm as you feel useless without it.

We are definitely going to the hospital today as we could not get there yesterday. I am going with Mary to take my FIL his Red Cross dinner.

Have used the left over chicken gravy and just chicked in some left over ham, some chicken and some peppers, onions, mushrooms and pasta. A quick but warming lunch which is just the ticket at the moment.

Ginny is right. Today we are at -1 which is quite warm compared with some of the temps we have had. Nothing like you ladies in Canada of course, but low enough. Mum just cannot get warm despite the fire being on. I am sitting in just a T-short and jeans as I am too warm, but Mum just has to look out of the window and that is her cold again.

Anyhow, hope you all have a great day and I will see you a little later on.

Oh BTW, I do have a bird report today and for me it is really exciting.

Hi there guys and gals. I can see you have been enjoying yourselves. The last three days have been just wonderful here as well. This is my last day of food celebrating for the present. Tomorrow I plan on going into damage control or cal counting whichever I can manage.

My computer is on the fritz. Not sure where it is machine, or server, or what, but it keeps dying in the middle of what I am doing and then wont come back on for a period of time.

So if you dont see me it will be at the repair shop. I will be in withdrawals if this happens, it is one thing I am not sure how I will handle. I guess I should prepare for it............. well I do have an old computer, but it doesnt have my stuff on it, but I guess I will still be able to use it if I have to.

Have a wonderful day all.

Hugs Wispy.

Hi OMA.......... Yes Boxing Day is busy...... I went out to a couple of stores...... and they were so busy.... I grabbed what I was looking for.... and got out of there...... Yes our weather is just as beautiful as yours...... How great that is that you are going to knit a quilt for the soldiers..... You will keep yourself busy with all the crafts you will be doing...

Hey MAC........ Yes it's all worth it..... and now today is kick back day for me....... We are just picking at some foods I left out... and I can now get caught up with all my emails...... The boards have been slow........ but I'm sure they will be picking up real soon...

Yes, things are pretty slow at the moment. In our place, Mum is in bed, mary and trsih are watching rerunes of the Star Wars films and I have just woken up after falling asleep reading a Faye Kellerman book. I think all we want to do now is to unwind as, although you do not realise it, Christmas is actually a time of high activity and lots of stress. I know you don't think of it that way but if you were to realise it, then you rush around ebforehand getting the last inute shopping, presents etc., then ther is the alst minute hurry up because you have orgotten someone, and are way behind in your wrapping, then there is the day itself which, despite the opening of the presents then see you rush around daft getting the Christmas meal ready and washing and clearing up afterwards. Once you get to Boxing Day you are worn out. I know itr may seem a bit of a cynical way to look at things, and I have to say that I have had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed myself. But falling asleep after being exhausted all day just got me to thinking. And I have to say that afterwards, I did ask myself the question of is it all worth it? In the end the answer has got to be of course it is. If it wasn't you would not keep doing it year after year. However, the next thing I want to know is why have I had to ask the question in the first palce? This is the first time I have ever thought this way and it is somewhat disconcerting.

I guess the most magical thing for me was seeing my niece's son, who is not even 2 yet, look up at our ceiling and all of the decorations with wonder and delight. Little things like the flashing lights and the dancing tree or the singing and ear flapping dog which caused him to dance and laugh along. It is those moments that make the day so special as you know then that the magic of Christmas is till alive. For us who are, shall w say, a little older, some of the magic may have slipped by a little but when you see the awe and wonder in the eys of a child as they open their gifts from Santa, or laugh with glee at some really small thing, or gape in astonishment as you go through the old magic routine of producing a coin from behind their ears as they have been good for Santa. These are the things that make Christmas what it is and will continue to do so for many years. At these times you forget all the hassle and the freneticism and then ask yourself again if it is worth it?

OH YES, IT SURE IS WORTH EVERY MOMENT!

Going to try asnd kick back and actually get some of my book read instead of falling asleep. Will therefore call it a night at this point. Hopefully the threads will start getting back to normal again tomorrow and we will be able to have a good natter.

Peace be with all of you and enjoy the rest of your day.

Good morning ladies.

Hope you all had a fantastic day yesterday.

Dee, I know what oyu mean. We were going to go up the hospital today but have decided against it after watching the chap over the road trying to get his car out and the problems he had. We had a mini white oout earlier on and although it has stopped for now, the sky is full of it. Mary had phoned the hospital to pass on the message to her father and we will try again tomorrow.

Ginny, -12 is indeed low. So far we have had it down to -6 althouh my brother and his wife, who live in Coventy have had it down to -11 ad average temps of -6 over the past couple of weeks.

We are just gearing up to put a load of food out on the table and that will be it for the day. Boxing day just sees us pick and help ourselves during the day so that we can all sit and relax. we have too much stuff a usual and goodness only knows where I will store the leftovers. My fridge is still full and we have commandeedered Mum's fridge as well. we still have tinned stuff in carrier bags as we do not have room in the larder either. I guess it will go eventually.

So, I will away just now and will pop in and chat a little later on.

Have a great Boxing Day.

Bless your heart Dee- the same type of thing happened with my SIL - she was attempting to go to Dallas to my other nieces house took her 3 1/2 hrs to get to Abilene (it normally takes 1 1/2 hr) then when she got a few miles out of Abilene - Highway patrol had blocked the road - made Everyone on the roadway turn around and go back to Abilene - she ended up spending the night in a motel in Abilene -yesterday morning she tryed to go on into Dallas but the road was still blocked - so she once again had to turn around and she just came back home
Hope Everyones Christmas was wonderful - we certainly had a blast with the girls -
tonight my niece is having friends over to the house for dinner and board games - so I guess the festivities continue LOL
Have a Great Day All

Happy Christmas to all of you. We will be eating at about 6pm after the sun goes down but we're all prepped and Bob has made some scrummy mince pies. Now we're going out for a drive and maybe stop off somewhere for a drink.

Merry Christmas everyone. However you may be spending the holiday season, may it find you safe, warm and ready for a great new year.

Well, hardly any activity as you might expect today. Everyone will be really busy. It is now time for me to call it a night.

Before I go, it is nearly Christmas Day here so it is timely fro me to say a couple of things.

Firstly thank you fro all ythe goodies. They were really lovely and so appropraiet.

More importantly though, to Sherry and Ginny our Team leaders, and to all of you good ladies whom I have the plpeasure to talk to each day I would like to say a big thank you for your kindness and support not just for me but or my family as well over the past year. Noone could ever wish to meet a kinder bunch of people and it is just a shame that we can only ever meet through the PC. It would be really great to actually meet with each other in person.

Have a really great Chrostmas Day. I will not be in as I will be busy in themorning, visiting my FIL in the early afternoon and then it is family time, that rare thing these days when we can actually spend time together.

See you all on Boxung Day.

Lots of emoticon to all emoticon everywhere

Hello Ladies.

apologies for not popping i yesterda, and I am even late today, (it is 4.25 pm here), but the past couple of dfays have been absolutely manic and I was so damned tired yesterday that I was in bed really ealry. Today has been a mix and it isn't over yet! Today was the day for making the trifles and cheescake, all of which are finished now. This morning we also had a house full as my youngest son brought his family up so that they could get their presents from us. They too will be having to visit the hospital as my son's partner has her grandmother in and, as she no longer has a mother, her grandmother is everything to her. we had quite a bit of fun withthe four kids; well, except for the youngest. Both he and the next oldest are both into the WWE wrestling. We got Natahn a WWE school pack as he starts school proper in January. When the youngest saw this he wasn't interested in his stuff. All he wanted was the wrestling stuff. We tried to explain to him that it was for going to school and not a toy, but I think he must have been tired as he really went into a huff. Apparently, he fell asleep in the car going back and is ok now. It was nice having them up as I do not get to see them that often. They live in a flat, (apartment), which is three flights of stairs up and I simply cannot climb them as thery are quite steep. Anyhow, I was just doing the base for the cheesecake when they came, (the trifleswere in the fridge for the helly to set). It was thus back to work when they left to finish off that and get the next stage of the trifle done. Not only that but Mary had to go out to get some meds for mewhich were on order so that I would have enough to last until the New Year. She also had to do some very last minute shopping, including getting some peanuts for the birds. So I was left to wrap the last few presents as my eldest son is bringing his family up any time now for their presents. after that Ic an realx but Mary has to go and visit her dad and, because none of us have really eaten today we are jsut going to have a take out, which Mary will get on the way back from the hospital. After that we can all sit and relax. Tomorrow morning Mary, trish, Mum, Jade, (one of my niece's), and jade's son Taylor are all going up to the hospital whilst I get on with the lunch. I will be going in the afternoon after dropping my niece and her son off at their place. We will then probably sit down and have a bit of Christmas cheer and raise a glass ot two, (just one in my case).

The hospital staff liked what I did with the Madeira cake. I really made it tangy with both orange and lemon zest and lemon juice in the mix and with the fruit on the top it was liek a big fruit flan. I made the mistake opf giving my son and his partner a bit of the sultana cake I had made and now have to make one for them. I will do that next week.

Teresa, you are worse off than us. When Mary came home at the beginning of the week she had to dig the snow away to get her car on to the stand. Yesterday she had to dig to ghet her car back out again! Also, both Mary and Trish had to clear a path to the rubbish bins, but the bin men did not come as they should have today. Even the mobile library didn't come yesterday because of the weather. We have around 12 inches of snow and there is more on the way.

Well, the meat is out of the freezer defrosting overnight. All the goodies are made. Just my other grandkids to come and then I will be popping back in.

Have a great day wherever you are.

To those who I will not catch up with, have a really good day topmorrow and enjoy your Christmas to the full.

See you later.

We woke up to 2-3 foot of snow and they said we probably wouldn't have a white Christmas - it is so pretty - the girls can't wait to get out and make a snowman or two - course that will up to my daughter and niece -
I won't be in the snow - it makes my legs hurt - the cold does anyway - but I sure can enjoy them from the windows emoticon
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE - MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS EACH OF YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES
