Elma
That was a lovely day stratson. I can just picture your garden with all the azaleas in bloom, just let others do the hard work and you enjoy. Get that kettle on and have a cup of tea and kid on I'm sitting there with you. wub.gif
stratson
Thanks stuarty, I know how you are, your doing right staying positive. You have a cruise to focus on, now that is something.!

Elma, strangely I was thinking of you in my garden yesterday, this time of year it always looks lovely, wish you had been able to see for yourself.
Keep meaning to upload your photo taken when you visited, you look really nice in it.(as you are.)

Today am staying home taking it easy, I will until I see my cardiologist on Wednesday the turn I had last Sunday was the first since he put me on Verapamil so will see what he has to say.
Have been keeping occupied in the house, I never know who will pop in to visit, most of my nieces are off work so they may drive over. Always something I can rustle up foodwise.

Going to do a little ironing, mostly slacks which I hate doing. laugh.gif

Enjoy Easter Monday Everyone.

Heather
I took the two g'daughters and one of their friends to the swimming pool today.
Then afterwards the usual visit to MacDonalds.

Although the pool was busy, it surprises me that it's not packed out during the School Holidays as the children get 'Kids Cards ' that lets them into the swimming pool free and you can stay in as long as you want.
Not like my days when we had to pay to get in and you were put out after about a half hour.
Anne1
Glad everything went well for you Stratson at hospital that will put a spring in your step
Trying to get into some routine in my life nothing s been quite the same since I fell never two days the same so today I start[or continue] physio at Carrickstone our local day hospital they will then give me a set number of days for treatment, Hopefully this new physio will help as im having a lot of pain with my leg, feel as if I am going backwards... Then today at 2pm going to my ex Brother in Laws funeral at Falkirk Crematorium
Tomorrow we are of to Ullapool to see our weeg/g/son Fraser ,just staying weekend but really looking forward to it.
Linda enjoy your indoor camping with Lydia rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif
stratson
Thanks Anne1, Annie Laurie and stuarty for your caring words.
That's great your going to Ullapoolat Anne for the weekend, a wee cuddle from your g/g/son will be best medicine for you.
(You can have a run up and down stairs without your sticks. Hope you become pain free a,s,a,p,x biggrin.gif

My niece, her husband, and the 2 g/g/children of my late brother Jack will be here at 11.30.a.m. for a visit, looking forward to it as I just love them all to pieces. smile.gif

angel
did,nt do much today, got a little shopping done and went for a walk as the weather to day has been lovely.. and tomorrow Fri. I am going into Toronto to see Andre Rieu at the Air Canada Centre and I,m really looking forward to that. tongue.gif
Heather
Been doing quite a bit of knitting today.

I am knitting an Aran sweater to take over to America for my sister, when I go 5th July. I just started it on Saturday and it's not the kind of pattern you can whisk through, not with all the twists and turns of Aran.

I really need a rest from the knitting as I have been doing quite a lot recently. I have knitted two shrugs for myself, a childs Aran sweater, a hat with a skip, & 7 pairs of mitts.

Anne1
you are putting me to shame Heather being so busy, we got back from Ullapool last night then early start for physio this morning finished that, we then went and got some bedding plants for tubs and hanging baskets, decides to leave then till tomorrow as I was shattered as medication Dr gave me has started kicking in went for a nap when I got up my daughter had called by and she done all the tubs for us what a bessing...So a wee quick flick to see whos on the boards then an early night for me. rolleyes.gif
Heather
Anne your ahead of me with the garden. I have not bought any plants yet, but yesterday I cut front and back lawns and trimmed th edges.

Are you still using walking sticks???

After all the physio I'm sure you deserved a rest.

I'll not be up late either, I'm worn out with all the knitting. laugh.gif But if I don't have that Aran sweater when I get to America, I'll be sleeping in the Porch. unsure.gif

How is baby Fraser doing??????????
stratson
See everyone is keeping busy, I am too.
Was at garden from 2 o'clock and got home around 9-930.Got greenhouse windows done, emptied hanging baskets ready to plant again, cut back a lot of bushes, had the burner going right up til I left. A colleague got me a 125litre bag of compost from B & Q, if it rains tomorrow will go there and get my bedding plants. Can sit and do my hanging baskets. At the weekend my tall trees are being felled as the are blocking the light to my neighbours as well as my garden.
I have just not been strong enough to lop them as I always did, so they are way out of control'
So thankful though am getting a lot of help this year.. It was our A.G.M.meeting yesterday so I asked the committee for help which they duly arranged Here's hoping we get some nice weather. rolleyes.gif

Anne1, glad you are getting youe physio and hope it's doing the job.
You can sit like me and do your hanging baskets, God bless you, I know you are in pain, hopefully every day you will get better and better.

Heather, you must be going ten to the dozen with those knitting needles, those are excellent gifts, am sure they will be appreciated. Next thing you'll be getting into your garden. Won't be that long until July 5th and you'll be in N.J. think I told you my daughter is in Cherryhill South Jersey. Are you going to Newark or J.F.K.?
joycewilson
Hi All, Got all my ironing done today and cleaned up a bit in here...just chilling tonight on line with a voddie x rolleyes.gif
Heather
Stratson, we are flying into Newark as my sister lives in Woodbridge, New Jersey.

I'm taking my g'son with me, it's his 18th birthday 3rd July, so that's his birthday present from his g'dad and me.
We had intended going in August, but the g'son starts College in the middle of August, so my sister had to arrange time off, she works for the IRS.

The childs Aran sweater, mitts and hat are for the Chapel coffee morning held beginnning of December to raise money for the Chapel funds. I hope to have more items knitted by December, especially a couple of childs Aran sweaters.

I have a habit of buying an extra ball of wool when knitting anything, so I use what's left over to knit the mitts and do them in all different colours, plain and striped. They are so easy to knit and pass the time when I have nothing to do, and as we all know children are always losing gloves and mitts so they sell quick as do the sweaters.

I never do two pairs of mitts in the same colour in case they are bought for children in the same school and they gets lost, and a barney starts as to whose mitts are whose.
joycewilson
Hi Heather how are you? My Mum still does her knitting too prefers to do baby things now though x

stratson
Went to B & Q at Darnley by bus, got my bedding plants, it's a fair walk from the bus stop to my gardens, had to stop halfway to draw my breath, a nice asian boy and his Mrs, carried the 2 large bags from the Tramway to Glenapp St. for me, was most grateful, anyway I put them all in greenhouse, gave them a watering, about turned and walked all the way back to my house.
Having early night and hopefully tomorrow will be a nice day, will do my hanging baskets.
This is definitely a labour of love. rolleyes.gif

Heather, am not sure how far Woodridge is from my Angela's place Cherryhill.
Newark is better airport as J.F.K. makes it a lshorter drive. Am assuming your going Continental.
Lovely gift for g/son Heather, taking him with you and hubby.
My wee neighbour Maggie is like you, never without knitting needles in her hand, she does some beautiful work.

Ron, when am fit would never waste a sunny day in the house, must get out and about. We get so little sunshine you've got to grab it when you can.
Mind you I only please myself. biggrin.gif
Anne1
