  • @Sunshinedaff @NanaBubbles Here are some photos from NZ. Mary on Mount Cook. It was quite warm up there. Apparently due to the Sun's reflection on the snow. View from our apartment in Lake Tekapo View from Restaurant overlooking Queenstown. Mary and I as midgets in Lord of the Rings. Rob xx
  • @LouiseJ Hello everyone A bit of a frustrating time for me at the moment Lou. I am still not able to go out for a walk or drive as my steroid side effects make me dizzy and unsteady on my feet. Effectively then, am lounging about slightly frustrated as it is sunny and pleasant outside. I guess most of us will agree with…
  • @Sunshinedaff @jacksprat_x1 My goodness Jackie, you have done well. I am struggling a little with my weight loss as I am not too mobile at the moment and walking is a big part of my regime. Yes Lou, those biscuits still have a cow on them and they taste so much better dunked in tea, albeit fairly weak tea. 😀 The hotel from…
  • @LouiseJ I drink Yorkshire tea ‘Where everything’s done proper’ 😉 Even so, I don’t like it too strong so I will go for 4A or 3C. I do drink a lot though and I like dunking with Tesco Malted Milk biscuits. Mary and I also like going out for afternoon tea and we have lots of really nice places where it is offered. One of our…
  • @LouiseJ @Anneb Margy, that view is just gorgeous and your reduced hours will allow you more time to enjoy it. It is always a relief to know that you are still cancer free and I am so pleased for you. Sorry to hear about the other stuff, especially having to lose weight 😟😒😩 I am on salads too though they are not making…
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Good evening dear friends Yes Margy. That doona looks really cosy and I could just hop in and have a snooze. I hope that you were successful in reducing your hours. Everyone needs some time for themselves and their families and friends. Fingers crossed that your results were good too. I hope that you…
  • @Sunshinedaff Oh yes Lou. Mary and I just loved those flowers and often sat on a nearby bench with our sandwiches. I imagine it will be a real challenge for you but enjoyable and rewarding. I was just thinking that with phone cameras and computers so popular, how rare it is that we actually make prints of our photographs…
  • @LouiseJ Oh, I wonder which one of Mary’s photographs you liked. My youngest sister is quite a talented artist, as far as I know anything.😁 She joined Mary and I in Malaga a couple of years ago and took us to the Museo Picasso there. I was struck by the variety of styles Picasso used during his career. I love Malaga, it…
  • @Sunshinedaff @jacksprat_x1 Good evening everyone. Yes Lou, I will record the song but there is plenty of time and I may tweak it a bit before I do. I am planning to score it properly and I have found a really good app which I can use. I just connect my keyboard to the computer, open the app and play. The app recognises…
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Hi Margy and Lou Oh Margy, we are looking forward to some sunny weather, not rain but I hope you get some soon. I am sur that your various results will all come out clear too and I am looking forward to hearing that. Yes, the steroids are a nuisance but at least I have my music to keep me occupied and…
  • Lovely day today. Walking is still a problem for me so we drove to our favourite St Brelades Bay and enjoyed a sandwich overlooking the beach. Gorgeous xx

  • @Sunshinedaff @jacksprat_x1 Oh Lou What a gorgeous painting and no wonder you are pleased with it. It has a lovely Christmas look to it which reminds me that I eventually finished my Christmas song too late for Christmas. Ah well, I’ll use it this year - only eight months to go. 🤣. It is great to hear that Hannah is still…
  • Oh Margy, so sorry to hear about your neuralgia. It must be horrible, but it clearly hasn’t affected your lovely sense of humour. Haha, I am eating a lot of lettuce at the moment, not my idea of Easter Bunny food. We still have Easter chocolate around though and I have to sit and watch Mary savouring it’s delights whilst I…
  • @Chilali1531 Hey Ali In remission 👍is just the best news. Hope you can relax, enjoy the Spring weather and get your strength back soon. 😃 Rob xx
  • @Sunshinedaff @Chilali1531 @Anneb @jacksprat_x1 @NanaBubbles Well, I had a good day yesterday. I had my annual check up at the Memory Clinic and I came out well on the tests. My assessor was pleased that since my last check, I (but mostly Mary) have gone through Lockdown, moved house, and are now managing health issues and…
  • @Sunshinedaff Oh Lou How awful for you. I am wondering why the dentist did not take it out? Will the infection go away on its own? I am still not able to walk because of my swollen feet and legs due to the steroids but at least I am not in much pain when I am sitting around. It is frustrating though. i do hope that you are…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou Thank you so much. Sadly, Mary and I will be on our own again this year, but we have FaceTime and that is good. We were invited round for a drink by the couple in the apartment next to ours yesterday. We have chatted outside a few times but now we are allowed to visit and it was really lovely. We are…
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Oh Margy, you are naughty. That is way too much chocolate, but Easter only comes once a year so why not. A swim in the gorgeous Murray river looks irresistible but maybe not after the chocolate. The egg hunt will be fun Lou. Lovely to hear that the girls are both getting involved in it and will be…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou No, sadly I don’t have any photographs which is a great shame but we didn’t have phone cameras in those days and I was young and didn’t give it much thought. Haha, my Dad did not encourage me to be a baker. He wanted me to go into banking for the security and pension it provided and I did that. Dad was…
  • This shop window in town reminds me of my parents who were bakers and confectioners. They had similar displays in their shop windows and I remember they had a big clockwork chicken with a nodding head holding a tray of home made chocolate Easter eggs and sweets sealed inside them. Mums and Dads would put in orders and ask…
  • Hi Lou It is always nice to see the clocks ‘Spring’ forward and particularly exciting this year to imagine that life is starting to get back to normal. A couple in a neighbouring apartment have invited Mary and I round to theirs for drinks on Friday. We have chatted socially distanced in the hallways and car park and we…
  • Oh Lou I am so pleased to hear that Hannah has been able to come home to sleep. It must be lovely to have her around again and fantastic to know that she is making such a great effort to recover from her illness. It is a real statement of intent that she managed to eat some chocolate fudge cake. We all seem to have had…
  • Haha Margy - relaxed anyway. Another beautiful day today and since we can’t go away yet, we are looking forward to a fine summer at home. Your garden looks lovely and green and I can see that you would welcome the rain after the temperatures you have to cope with. I recall that you are going home tomorrow. Travel safely…
  • Mary and I enjoyed a lovely country walk and a light lunch at a farm restaurant today. Though Jersey is famed for its coast and beaches, we also have some great countryside too. These country lanes are just a 20 minute stroll from our apartment and the daffs are just everywhere as you can see from the photos. I do remember…
  • @Sunshinedaff @Anneb @Chilali1531 @NanaBubbles @jacksprat_x1 Haha Margy. Well, your pins did make me laugh and the Friendship one made me feel quite emotional. Yes, my check engine light went on a long time ago but the medics are still managing to put it out 🤞😉 My goodness, you and the boys have had a busy Saturday and I…
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Gday everyone Yes Margy, you are lucky to live in such a wonderful vast country and the photographs of your garden and the views from your balcony are stunning. I know also that both you and the boys have worked really hard to make it even more fantastic and you deserve it. You will be excited about…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Thank you for your post which is a reminder that cancer treatment and/or it’s after effects can go on for years. Your body has been beaten up and changed, you have had surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone treatments etc. You have coped with everything that has been thrown at you and now you are free…
  • @NanaBubbles @Sunshinedaff Hi Michele, I am pleased the daffodils brought back good memories and it is great to know that you Cornish bulbs are still going strong so many years later. We used to have French workers over for the daffodils and the Jersey Royal potatoes too, but they now employ migrant workers from the…
  • @NanaBubbles Hi Michele I missed your name out in my previous post which was meant for you to see with regard to the daffodils and Martello Tower. Mary and I took a walk in local countryside and passed by a farm with a field of daffodils this morning. We wondered why some of the rows were blooming and others were not and a…
  • @Sunshinedaff @Anneb @jacksprat_x1 @Chilali1531 I am sorry to hear that you are suffering exhaustion, it must be so frustrating for you. You have done really well to have your daffodils in bloom. One of our local farmers who exports daffodils has fields full of them within walking distance of us and they look amazing. Mary…
