    Hello Mrs Molly

    The grass got hoovered about a month ago

    Wispa likes to help out in the garden as she takes a keen interest in what I’m doing. She is very good at pruning as she took a fancy at one of the dwarf azaleas and bit all the flowers off then proceeded to chew off the branches until all that was left was a stump, so I had to dig it up and dispose of it

    She has a sly look at the bedding plants and has bitten off flower heads of Marigold and Petunia but is beginning to understand ‘no’ means no

    I’ll have a cup of tea tomorrow please
    With milk (no sugar)

    Hi folks and good morning

    I've been MIA as I've been unwell. I'm on the mend now so back to tormenting you all.

    Had a week of visiting people (no I wasnt germ ridden, I was physically incapacitated).

    Today off to see the good old consultant (a new one) so who knows how that will go.

    And then an afternoon of cleaning, lucky girl I am.

    Enjoy your day

    Oh much better thankyou. Had a bout of wonderful sciatica which meant I couldnt sit for too long, stand for too long etc etc. I'm sure most people can understand that.

    Consultant seems Ok - it's a woman so I explained my issues with women and she was understanding. Hopefully work with her some more and see how it goes.

    And today I'm going to have a lazy day. I usually spend Friday afternoon catching up with friends and relatives on text so will do that a bit later on. They get used to it, I get used to texting/phoning and everyone is happy.

    You enjoy your day

    Morning all

    I'm exhausted. Had the wee ones yesterday and Ava-May thinks it's good to now stick nanna to bed. With a teddy of course and then she comes and nicks everything and goes off snoring herself. So lots of stuff to do in nanna's house. I have to go tidy upstairs, I was too tired last night after they had gone.

    I might have to hide my jewellery and makeup too. Little one has discovered it and thinks its fun to try putting my chains and bracelets on. She broke the chain I had around my neck with my citrine pendant so now need to source a new chain. She also thinks trying to draw on nanna's face with eyeline pencils are fun. Yes there was some supervision, just need to adjust my bedroom so some things arent in eye sight.

    What was grandad doing? Sleeping on the sofa whilst Hayleigh was plugged into the matrix with her tablet and headphones.

    Lets see how many more days nanna gets the wee ones this week.

    Anyone with suggestions on how to get a small one to eat normal food would be greatfully received. She has decided that food is boring and wont eat anything.

    Afternoon folks

    Rather quiet on the board again. I hope that means people have found plenty to do whilst dodging the showers. Seriously though I hope you are all well.

    I have shopping plans today. Going to venture to the out of town retail park and try source a few things for my break away in September. Hubby should really get a revamp too, fed up looking at anything black will do.

    Have a good weekend, tomorrow is granddaughter day so let's see what the wee one has nanna doing this week.

    Morning all

    Beautiful sunny day here in the Midlands.

    Off to sponsorship weekend with Freddie at the Greyhound Trust. He will have his nails clipped and a quick check over and then a gallop around the field. Great to see him off the lead and running.

    Quiet week for us - eldest on holiday with the wee ones, middle child off on her second hen do, and youngest is at his mother's. He passed his GCSE English exam this year so go a cash bonus for working hard. He plans on having his ear pierced with the money.

    Other than that all quiet in Wolfie's world. Enjoying the peace.

    Have a good week all

    Morning folks

    Well I'm off this bright and sunny morning to have a hair and makeup trial for my daughter's wedding in October. I'm also using the titivating to go out for a birthday meal tonight with the family. It's not my birthday til Wednesday but being as I'm a few hundred miles from home in the English Riviera with hubby this was the only date everyone could make.

    I reach the grand old age of 50 next week. Always had some suspicion I wouldnt last this long (come close a couple of times). But 50 here I come and here comes counting the wrinkles and grey hair lol (have a job with the grey hair as I dye my hair a wonderful shade of yellow).

    I hope you are all well. Missing chatting with some of you.

    @Cumberland how's the wee doggie
    @Molly56 any more festive ornaments?
    @Clivethedrive how's the tourists?
