  • @JerseyBob @LouiseJ Good morning Rob and Lou Thanks Rob, I am feeling much better now thankfully. I do empathise with you on the steroids as I too am back on prednisilone for my rheumatoid arthritis as well as hydrocortisone for my adrenal insufficiency. Because the RA has been so horrible and they can’t give me anything…
  • @LouiseJ @RobertA Hello friends Firstly, I do hope that you are as well as maybe and my apologies for not having been in touch for such a long time. I have been struggling with chest infections, changes of meds and absolute exhaustion which has not been helped by the Covid jabs we have now received although we were very…
  • @Sunshinedaff @Chilali1531 @RobertA @Lesley @jacksprat_x1 @Anneb Good morning everyone I hope you are all doing ok - we all seem to be going through difficult times just now and I do hope that life is improving for us all. Lovely to hear all your news Lou and good to hear about your family history discoveries - very…
  • Good morning everyone and thank you for all the lovely photos and funny pictures which make me smile and lift my spirits. As you have all said, it is great to be in touch with folk who understand all the ups and downs and complications of our lives - we are all different but the knock on effects are similar. I am sorry not…
  • @LouiseJ @RobertA Good morning to you both, Lou that’s brilliant! Thank you so much. I will definitely be looking for those and reading them in due course. Have a good day. Love Michele x
  • @RobertA @LouiseJ Good morning to you both and anyone else who may read this. Thanks for your note Rob. I did see your previous about the Martello towers and when I was growing up on the south coast, I learnt a very little about them as there were a few we used to see. I particularly remember one near the Romney, Hythe and…
  • @LouiseJ @RobertA Hello Rob and Lou - how did it get to be the weekend again!? It is still cloudy and cold here but hope you have a better day. Lou, I think I missed you saying about your recent loss and hope that it wasn’t too traumatic. My aunt died peacefully in her sleep at 91, at home with her daughter and son-in-law…
  • @LouiseJ Sounds wonderful!! I am feeling very virtuous though - have just filled a box with books that I don’t want or need any more, ready for the Cancer Research shop in town when it opens. 🤣😀. I needed to ‘attack’ something as I have just heard that my very dear Aunt died on Wednesday. She lived with her daughter just…
  • @Sunshinedaff @RobertA Good afternoon to you both Send some sunshine up here please Lou! It is still very overcast, windy and cold. The days feel like ‘groundhog days’ at the moment and I am so looking forward to the weather warming up a bit more! Yes Rob, I am sure that you are right and maybe my parents did think to make…
  • @Sunshinedaff @RobertA Lou, I love the pics above, particularly the top one which I am going to send to my granddaughter who is a great Harry Potter fan and reads at every opportunity and fast too! If she needs a break from her younger brother, she will take a book into the loo and sit there reading! History repeating…
  • @Sunshinedaff @RobertA @Anneb @Lesley @jacksprat_x1 Good morning everybody We are back to a winter sort of day here too but the birds are busy and the daffodils are out so spring can’t be far away! Having told you all about our long ago holiday to stay with my cousin in France, she phoned me!! I had not spoken to her since…
  • @RobertA @Sunshinedaff Good morning to you both from a dull and overcast Banbury! Nothing to apologise for Lou! You asked about ‘Tidelands’ which I have now finished. I usually love the Philippa Gregory books but was not so taken with this one which focuses on a woman from the poorer part of society during the Civil War.…
  • Hello everyone What a beautiful sunny weekend it is here! Please excuse me for not being in touch just recently but have been really struggling with exhaustion and not able to do much of anything. However, we have daffodils out in the garden and the sun is shining and warm so I am going to sit outside with my sketch book…
  • @LouiseJ @RobertA Good morning everyone from a very cold and trying-to-snow Banbury! Goodness it is Monday AGAIN! I look back at last week and find it difficult to distinguish one day from the next! I set my sights on cupboards last week and have sorted out two big ones which I am pleased to have done. On Friday I finished…
  • @LouiseJ @RobertA @Chilali1531 @Anneb @jacksprat_x1 Goodness it is Friday AGAIN! I look back at the week and find it difficult to distinguish one day from the next! I set my sights on cupboards this week and have sorted out two big ones which I am pleased to have done. This morning I finished off a big cupboard in our…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Sorry you have this pain which sounds very similar to mine caused by RA in my case. These exercises do really help but take them gently. Firstly, slowly move your face round to look over your shoulder as far as is ok to do so, don’t force it. Place your opposite hand, (so if looking over left shoulder use…
  • @LouiseJ @RobertA @Chilali1531 Good morning everybody Rob your photos are wonderful - love the sunlight on the water. Is it a Martello tower in the beach photo? It looks like something defensive. Great that you and Mary were able to get out and about for a while - how lovely that you were able to find a coffee and a…
  • Hi everyone I do know what you mean Lou about the days merging into one! The time seems to go by and I ask myself what I have done today? The answer is nothing much! However, I have done some painting and a bit more baking than usual. We have missed most of the storms so far which have been further north mostly, just a lot…
  • @LouiseJ @RobertA Good Wednesday morning to you both and everyone! Well as I write, the rain is streaming down and our wind spinner is whizzing round like mad! Our snowdrops will be drowned! I hope this finds you both as well as you can be! Lou I was really pleased for you that your new mattress has arrived and I do hope…
  • LouiseJ Hi Lou and everyone I finished Eleanor before Christmas and have been meaning to say so ever since!! I had a slow start and wasn’t sure about ‘Eleanor Oliphant’ at first but when I continued to read, I really enjoyed this book. Certainly thought provoking! I have just started reading ‘Tidelands’ by Philippa Gregory…
  • @Sunshinedaff and everyone First of all - wishing you all a very happy and healthy new year! Somewhat belated I am afraid but I do hope that this year will be an improvement on 2020 for us all! I hope you all had a good Christmas as far as was possible. We were on our own here but as Christmas Day was lovely and sunny…
  • Good morning all Apologies for not being in touch for so long and I hope everyone is as well as possible. I have been trying to get organised for Christmas with reduced energy as cellulitis returned and had to have some horrible antibiotics. Anyway, cellulitis better now but RA not so good. Most of Christmas preparations…
  • @RobertA @Sunshinedaff Good afternoon to you both Hope life is treating you both kindly. I had a chat with my GP on Monday re all the pain and sleeplessness so we have tweaked my meds and (HOORAY!) I can use Ibuprofen or similar topically which has made a huge difference. Consequently I have managed to sleep better, not…
  • @Sunshinedaff @RobertA Good morning both Firstly, Lou, I do hope that Hannah is improving - I have been thinking about you quite a bit over the last few days and wishing you and your family well. So now I have to confess that I am still only about half way through Eleanor Oliphant! Apologies! Quite honestly, it is not the…
  • Hi everyone Sorry not to have posted for a while. Lou, I am so sorry to hear about Hannah and do hope that life is improving for her with the extra care and attention. Sometimes, being home with family who love you is a brilliant tonic. That drive back sounds ☹️ terrible and your hotel experiences sound very mixed but will…
  • @Chilali1531 @Sunshinedaff @RobertA @Anneb @PositiveLady10 Good morning all Love the Kermit picture above Ali! There are some clever people to dream these things up! Bon chance avec les olives! How wonderful to have your own crop. We went to stay with some friends in Ste.Maxime, near Nice, some years back and I naively…
  • @LouiseJ @RobertA @Anneb @Chilali1531 @Jimjam @PositiveLady10 Dear Lou I am so sorry that Hannah is having a rough time health wise and it is always terrible when your children are ill and even worse when away from you. If you could take their problems and have them yourself, you would do! Sending lots of love to you all…
  • @Anneb @NanaBubbles @Chilali1531 @Sunshinedaff @PositiveLady10 Good afternoon all, Wow, Barbara! Your Spanish Dragon is really beautiful. It is similar to a yukka plant which a neighbour has but with the variegated leaves and more rounded flowers it is a stunner and no doubt will look good all the year round whereas the…
  • @NanaBubbles @RobertA @Chilali1531 @Anneb Good morning everyone Thanks for all your good wishes. I am feeling better today thankfully - breathing more easily and hardly coughing now that I can use my inhaler again. I still have to have a lower hydrocortisone dose for another 3 weeks and then drop down again on my 12 noon…
  • @RobertA @LouiseJ @Chilali1531 @Anneb Good morning all Hope you have a good trip to Falmouth Lou. What a nuisance about your bed, I do hope it comes soon for you and you can get a decent night’s sleep! Thanks for asking about my tests Margy and Rob. I am very lucky because the surgery where I go for blood tests etc and get…
