I live not to far from a town where Lucy Maud Montgomery lived from 1911 until 1926. She was from Prince Edward Island but moved there with her husband who was appointed minister of the local church. She wrote many of her Anne of Green Gables stories here. There is an active LMM society which has bought the manse and the old church. If I think of it I will take a picture of the historical plaque , the manse and the church and post it..
joycewilson

stratson
Still resting this leg, back to Doc's tomorrow.
It's funny how when you have to rest you think of all the things you should be doing, when your fit your thinking of what you can avoid. Am a great putter offer. laugh.gif
Anne1
Me too Stratson and ive also got Health Centre tomorrow for Iron injection what a pair of lame ducks eh laugh.gif
Heather
I'm great at puting off things I should be doing, to another day.

I was more organised when I was working and got through more on a flexi day off than I do now I have all my days off. Still who cares, as my mum always said ' the house will still be here tomorrow'.
When we were older it made us laugh when mum said that, as before we got married we were not allowed out on a Friday night. Our 5 apt. house was taken apart and cleaned from top to bottom every Friday night. We older one's had our chore's and God help us if they were not done properly. Then there were the chore's mid-week that we had to do before we went out.
Who remembers the lavender floor polish? We started with the polish at one end and worked our way down the room floor then went back to shine it up. rolleyes.gif
It bugged me that our brothers were not expected to do anything as housework was women's work.
Friday is still my house cleaning day. My Doctor told me I'm a slave to my genes.laugh.gif
stratson
Yes Heather I remember the lavender floor polish, I was the only girl at home.(Lila was married) so it all fell on me, my brothers had to do other chores, I always resented being a skivvy.

We are so lucky nowadays with all our mod cons.

Don't suppose it did us any harm. smile.gif

Hope it's not too sore Anne getting your iron jags I got a course of them many years ago, they hurt. Looked like a they were for horse's .
Never mind pal, we are made of strong stuff. smile.gif
joycewilson
Oh well last day of my wee holiday from work...back tonight for two nights then off till Tue...need to get my ironing all done today for going back... sad.gif
Anne1
Didnt get out today, the roads in complex werent cleared til about 1 hour ago, so no injection no shops, and then we found out one of neighbours was found dead in his house so all afternoon its been police ambulances, then finally undertakers arrived, such a sad end to a very nice man
stratson
O.M.G. Anne1, must have been a terrible shock for you. It has been a miserable day.R.I.P.

Will your Dr. take you tomorrow or do you have to arrange another appt.
Hope your feeling alright.

You should have seen the state of me hobbling in to surgery holding on like grim death to my walking stick. The auld legs very shaky. Saw Dr, am going to the New Victoria tomorrow 9.a.m. to have leg x-rayed., pain has never ceased, she says it's not D.V.T. Hope she's right.
Be glad to get diagnosis.

Home Services brought the first 2 weeks meals today, they certainly look very fresh.
Will start on them tomorrow, no more standing in the kitchen preparing meals.
Certainly a life of leisure. rolleyes.gif
joycewilson
Awwww Anne1 sorry to hear about your neighbour...thats sad.
Hope you manage to get to the doctors..is the snow still bad?
Hi STratson sorry to hear your having a bad time with your leg.....hope you get sorted.
You having meals delivered then?
Went back to work last ngiht after my wee break, just tonight to go and I am off again...need to finish painting my hall at the weekend not much to do so may as well get it done.
Hope everyones doing ok....
Anne1
Morning Joyce, got another appointment for Iron Injection this morning, snow seems to have stopped so will get out and about just shortly, you will be looking forward to you time of again eh
Hi Stratson hope you get on alright at the Hospital keeps us informed och theres life in us old girls yet biggrin.gif
patsy
good morning girls,!!!!! well I have had a long lye, and still feel tired, what does that tell you, either I am a lazy so and so or age has crept up on me. Stratson , you will be glad to get to the hospital today, whatever is causing the pain, they will get to the bottem of it. Anne 1 take it easy today give yourself a wee treat after your injections. Joyce don't work too hard,as good gear is scarce. For me when I looked out at the weather , I think that is what made me go back to bed!!! I will be meeting my sister later and catch up with all her news.
Take care girls, after all we are girls till we are 90. Patsy (alias Mamie) I had to change my name as I could not get back on with my old account. wub.gif
stratson
Hi Patsy(Mamie). Wise decision going back to bed. Yes I went to hospital, The New Victoria Infirmary, it is absolutely beautiful inside as well as out. You no longer call it x-ray, all very posh, now named>>>Imaging". anyway 2 weeks to wait for results. I commented to radiologist," It can't be an emergency then to which she replied, "Not as far as we are concerned", am none the wiser.. The good thing is if it were really serious they would not have allowed me to leave the hospital.>>>>"Or would they?" huh.gif

Have a good catch up with your sister Mamie. Wrap up well.

Anne1, glad you got taken trhis morning for your injections. As you say at least you can walk out today. Hope your bahookie is not to tender, aye, us girls sure go through the mill, never mind, we will get there. Take care and rest your weary ash. laugh.gif
patsy
Stratson! I would take the radioloists wordsfor it ,it sounds to me it is good news. You will be looking forward to the good old summertime, to get back into your allotment, that is a great pastime if you like that sort of thing.
Anne1 and everybody who has been commenting, enjoy a lovely day, whatever you are doing. CHEERS wub.gif
