    Hi all

    Well some good news. My eldest moved home and seems happy. Number one worry gone
    My youngest daughter is interacting more with baby (he's 10 months this week) so hoping she's coming out of the depression. Her husband will always be a bit of a pig but at least she can offload to us. Worry number two nearly gone
    Son has finished his placement but they have kept him on for a short while to train him so he can move on elsewhere. As they are a church charity I thought it lovely they wanted to give him further training at their cost in exchange for a few hours work. Keeps him out of trouble. Worry number three going
    My grandchiildren are well. Grandson will be walking soon. He babbles a couple of words - momma, dadda, nanna. Loves coming to ours to see the dog.
    Granddaugher number 1 is having school issues so working on that. Tricky age coming into teens so school, mom and support worker all working together. No school this week as half term.
    Granddaughter number two I'm amazed, she's just turned 5 and can now use her own pump to administr the insulin if you tell her what amount the carbs are. She has good and bad days as sometimes can be a bit non erbal but have established with school's help that she is possibly doing it for attention from different family members as she now isnt the baby any longer.

    We're in the middle of decorating the kitchen. Nice sunny yellow. Eldest daughter oming tomorrow to help do the gloss as neither me or hubby can get on the floor. Payment is a Mcdonalds lol.

    I'm hit and miss after car accident. Memory a bit poor. Still lots of pain. Might go see a chiropracter or ask GP for physio. He gave me some pain relief but hubby reckons opiods and addictive so trying not to take them.

    Whats the Commonwealth people amongst us doing for the Platinum Jubilee? I must admit we're not doing anything special apart from making some cakes and havng sandwiches in the garden (if it's dry).

    Enjoy your week

    Morning folks

    Today I'm off to my youngest daughter's house to have a chat and see baby. Hard to believe he will be 1 in August.
    Tomorrow I have a door to paint and possibly the frame.
    Just bought some great wallpaper for my bedroom, it's got books on it ha ha. Hubby picked it so just need a clear couple of days to do the feature wall, freshen up the paint and off we go another room done.
    Think leave it then til after our trip to Spain.

    I've not been around as I've had COVID.
    Had all the jabs but caught it either from baby or his daddy who works in the hospital.
    Been pretty poorly, not done much except read and rest.
    Still not completely well but hoping to be back to normal service soon.

    Hope you feel better soon @wolfie11969. Don't rush back into doing too much too soon.
