Angel ,did your blood tests prove OK .Please let us know .We all care .



Hi Jean thanks for asking , there are a few , hopefully , little problems that have turned up, , cholesterol levels have gone through the roof , also today he sent me
for a couple of blood tests, for kidneys and also thyroid , my white blood cells are going haywire , so I guess something is going on , "infection somewhere "
and I have to go back in a couple of weeks for another blood test
just to check the high dosage of lipitor that he prescribed today ,
isn't affecting the liver . ,
So Jean , thats my day and I will worry about those results when the time
comes , and once again thank you for asking .
Hope all is going well at your house , and I think that you guys got worse weather than we , we just got the winds and very heavy rain ..

also Anne , a weekday would be fine for me . Take care , Pat
angel

angel
Jakka those are my appontments for April

Heather
I hope you girls get your day out together sorted and you all have a good time.

I'm still trying to get over this Chest Infection, and I'm fed up with it.

I have to get into Town to buy an Engagement Present for the son of my niece and I don't have a clue what to buy. Engagement Presents these days are what in our days were Wedding Presents.

The party is on the 3rd May in a hall out in Coatbridge and there are over 200 people invited. ohmy.gif
My niece and her husband have ordered a Coach to get us there and back home, picking us up just a few minutes from where we live. smile.gif

It's a wild wet and windy day here, so no outing for me.
mlconnelly
Heather, I bought my friends daughter 2 beautiful Caithness Crystal wine goblets in a presentation box and they were etched with a lovely modern pattern. She was delighted with them. Mary
jakka13
Well after the bone scan yesterday ,I just tried to stay off my feet as much as possible .One foot is twice the size of the other .I'll be glad to get to the bottom of this Tthis has been going on since last December .FED UP . angry.gif
angel

I had stared a spring clean out from my cloth closets
this week , so a few large bags for the Sallyann
and a lot more for the dump .
It's been a nice morning , cool with sunshine ,
but not promising to last .
So I'll now pack the car and get going to the dump .
Cheers . Pat .
jakka13
Well I went to Michaels craft store today .A complete waste of time .They came into Canada from the USA ,forced Lewiscraft and White Rose out of business .This is the closest store I can find 45 min drive for me .I had a list as long as my arm of stuff I needed .I came out with five hanks of thread 49cents each and four buttons angry.gif I was sure I would find all the supplies I needed .This has to be the worst Michaels I've ever shopped in .I needed ribbon and the fluff for the baby hats .I'm really not pleased tonight . angry.gif
Heather
The weather here is still cold and wet.

Before we went to Dublin I sent away for some bulbs for the garden and they came last week. It was a good deal as they gave you 200 bulbs for the price of 100.
I still have to dig out some old plants I want rid of and move other's, but with the weather I can't get anything done.
Spring has not yet sprung. sad.gif
angel
Well , I made a blunder this afternoon .
While driving home I noticed that the
traffic lights ahead of me where not working
so as I drove around the bend on the road ,
I slowed down as I was coming up to the intersection ,
making sure there was'nt any problems with the traffic , and
so I just continued on through .
The next thing that happens is the cop car
coming behind me with sirens blaring and light flashing
and I'm thinking they are rushing to some emergency, but , NO Way ,
they where in fact after me , So I pulled off the road and the police
officer came over to my car and informed me that I should have made
a complete stop , and not have gone through ,
when traffic light's are down you treat the intersection as
a four way stop , this I know ! but I told him that it all seemed safe
enough to me , anyway , he said , " mam you could have caused an
accident "
I must say he was very nice to me and of course I apologised
and we both went on our way .
That is the first time in my life I have ever been
chased by a cop car , I was really shook up. unsure.gif
So the next time I come across traffic lights that are down ,
I'll get out of the car and walk biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
How was your day ?

ps . I have decided to take time out from the boards for a bit ,
see you ladies later ....... Pat
Heather
Oh dear Angel, what are you like, getting chased by the Police. ohmy.gif laugh.gif

I remember one time I was driving through Rutherglen and I stopped at the lights and a Policeman came over to me and said, ' don't do that again'. I did not have a clue what I did wrong, but I just said, 'No Officer, sorry Officer'.

Mary, that's an idea, maybe I should buy some nice crystal glasses, they are always nice to have when offering visitors a drink. smile.gif
jakka13
You're lucky he didn't give you a ticket ,Pat .Where are you going ? Well miss you !!!!.
I got the results from the bone scan this afternoon and was relieved to hear the bones are good .The conclusion was that it is a soft tissue infection .My GP thinks they will probably take the nail off and let the site cvlear out .I see the specialist on Wednesday and find out then .Almost five months since the trouble began sad.gif I'm fed up.
Up late tonight watching all the coverage on the news about the bombers.Good night folk .
jakka13
Just had a thought .Your not sick are you ?.You mentioned some problems in your blood work .
annie laurie
Hello Angel,
Enjoy your wee break,
Try and not worry about your car Incident
Hopefully the weather is going to warm up a bit Heather,
I also bought some bulbs and cant get them planted either as it has been so wet here
Happy to hear they finally got the other guy in the Boston Bombers
Truly just awful,
Boston is such a nice City I loved it when we visited there
Feel for the Parents,
Cheers
Isobel
Angel like Jakka I hope all is well with you .Have a break and when you are ready to talk again we will all be here for you .As Annie said in her last post the weather should be warming up soon. We all need a bit of sunshine eh?
jakka13
Well in a couple of weeks we hope we will be up at the lake .The news tonight didn't sound to good .Lots of flooding around not far from where we are .Maybe fifteen minutes away ,however it's a river that has flooded and we are on the lake but only about thirty feet from the water to the end of our patio which is about ten feet long.I hope all is well .We're hoping to take a run up at the end of the month to see if all is well and make sure the furnace is set to go and we've lots of wood for the fire .I think it's going to be pretty cold there when we get up .Still hoping for May tenth as our big move up .Some things to take care of here before we can set the date .
Isobel
Jakka according to the news Bracebridge is pretty bad. Water levels are high.
I hope it all changes and you are able to take off for May 10th You make sure your foot is OK before you take off. Sounds like Al is doing alright. Happy for you . Its been a tough few months for you both.
jakka13
Hi Isobel ,we're not as far north as Bracebridge ,we're very close to Fenelon Falls (about five Minutes out of town ).Al sees his cardiologist on May 2nd .He is still having some angina pains so were hoping we get the all clear from her .We see his kidney Dr tomorrow and hope all is well there .I see the specialist on Wednesday .I'm hoping he just puts me on strong anti-biotics and get's this infection cleared up .At the worst ,if they do have to remove the nail ,I'll cope .Right now my dining room is full of stuff to take up .We will try to go up for the day on April 30th and unload it all .Then it will be easier to make the big move up in May .I'm pretty sure it's going to be pretty cool but fingers crossed ,things warm up soon .
Heather
Jakka, I got the nail on one of my big toes taken off years ago. Sore at the time, but soon healed.

I have been very lazy the past week although I did manage to plant some of the bulbs in the garden, a few one day then more the next day. Just 30 more to plant and that is them all in.
jakka13
Lovely day here .Sunshine and pretty mild .I just cleaned my livingroom windows .They are the only ones I can reach from my balcony.They get window cleaners in to do the rest .We've a wee tree at the side of the walkway into the front door and it's all in bud .Does your heart good to see the trees turn green again .Only last week they were covered in snow . thumbup.gif
wee mags

angel

Hi Mags , it's also communion time here , has been for the past

all dressed up . Cheers , Pat.
angel


Hi Jakka , it is another beautiful day here ,
Spring at last , " I hope " .
I have to deal with some stuff tomorrow ,
so I just came on for a couple of minutes
to say hi,

Hope all is well with you . cheers , Pat .


jakka13
Good to see you posting Pat .Forecast looks good for Tuesday so we will take a run up to the lake .Hope all is in order .We've a friend who has a place not too far from ours and when she went up last week Raccoons had gotten inside and just about destroyed the inside .One of her windows got broken and she figures that's where they got in .They chewed furniture and carpets etc plus poop and pee everywhere . ohmy.gif
Isobel
Beautiful sunny day here, apparently it's going to get quite warm. Thinking of all of you although not on board that often right now. So busy with the grand kids. Joanne gets the keys to her new house May 6th ,so getting some stuff packed up. I am going to miss having them here .Especially my two little grand daughters. They will only be 5 mins walk away but it wont quite be the same. Their lives are so busy.
Hope every one is well. I am going to try and pop in and keep in touch at least once a week.
Have a great summer Isobel




































































































angel


Hi Isobel , I do hope that all goes well with the move to the new house for your daughter , she will probably be very pleased to be in her own house once more .
I do hope that you have a great summer and all will be well .
will see you around the boards now and then .
Take care , Cheers Pat .
Isobel
Thank you Pat ,right back at you .
toerag
Beautiful sunny day here, went from snow last week to 23 degrees today so now we will complain about the heat wub.gif Isobel Joanne and family will like getting into their own place again, even thought you have enjoyed the kids they are not far away. Hope everything goes well for Al tomorrow Jakka and your foot is on the mend, we did not get our lunch date yet, maybe in the fall we will all manage it!! A friend of ours had racoons got into their boat last year and what a mess, they are messy wee animals!!!A young girl I work with just got flooded in all the floods here, she is just south of Bracebridge, (the black river) what a mess, the water was up to the door handles on the main level and today insurance old her no insurance, its an act of god, I feel so bad, its her first wee house and she works 2 jobs , she was so pleased with it. Angel glad you did not get a ticket from that nice young policeman!!!!!
jakka13
Well Anne if you read my post in the Diary we got off lucky .The whole front is like a swamp .Tried to rake some of the leaves up yesterdy to try and help the front dry out .At least the bear didn't cause any damage .He only pooped all over the place laugh.gif
Heather
I was all round the Town during the week looking for an Engagement Gift and was disappointed at the choice's of nice crystal glasses or crystal bowls. I ended up buying a mirror, which is not what I wanted, but it is a nice oval shaped one.
I was trying to think of something the couple would not get too much of as there were 200 people going to the party.

The party was on Friday night and it was packed, especially with young one's probably in their 20s.
We enjoyed the night, but came home at 11'0'clock and were lucky to get offered a lift from a friend who was leaving at the same time.

It was a busy Mass this morning as they were children making their 1st Holy Communion. It was nice to see the wee girls in the white dresses and veils and the boys in their kilts. smile.gif
Two lots this Sunday and the same at both Masses next Sunday.
angel


Good morning Heather , glad to see that you enjoyed the engagement party after the headache of trying to find a suitable gift .
I no longer buy gifts for engagement's or wedding's , a lot of bother trying to find something suitable , so these past years , I figure how much I would spend on the gift , so that amount of money plus a card is my gift .
this way they can buy what they would like or need and I am minus a headache , biggrin.gif p.s. their money gifts add up to quite a sum of money
so everybody is Happy.
In our parish the communions take place during April , we have five schools and plus the children who attend public school and also the
confirmations ,so it is a busy time

Our monsignor celebrated his 40th anniversary as a priest this weekend
there was quite a celebration in the church with lots of goodies for those Parishoners who attended , a lovely time had by all .
Take care , Cheers , smile.gif Pat

Purplefan
Got up at 12 o'clock (bank holiday) had my breakfast
piece in black pudding with a fried egg.
sat on my arse on my recliner watched star trek 11 on film 4 and now
i'm going to have my tea.
all the talk about square sausage on the possil thread, has got my mouth wattering.
Heather
So you had a nice relaxing day Purplefan. laugh.gif

Angel, I did think about giving money as a gift, but as that is what I will give as a wedding gift I decided against it.

I have had a lazy weekend. As the TV programmes are rubbish I looked out some old tapes I had recorded years ago and spent the weekend watching North & South. It was in that series I first heard of Patrick Swayze and liked him, so tomorrow I might look out Dirty Dancing and watch that, again. smile.gif

Doug1
Beeeutiful day up here today so what did I do? Relax and chill out on the sun lounger with a nice ice cold lager and just lap up the sun !! No, that's what a sensible person would have done but instead I donned my old gardening togs clambered up a ladder and cleared out the clogged up gutters and when finished doing that and with the ladders still being out decided to clean all the house windows. When that was done with I then raked the lawn ready for mowing tomorrow, as long as it doesn't rain.

How pathetic am I unsure.gif
angel


Yes Doug , the trials and tribulations of living in a house with a yard ,
this I can relate too , but I think if the work load does'nt drive you crazy , it will help keep your brain healthy and also you can have a
sence of accomplishment in a job well done .
Enjoy your good weather . smile.gif
Heather
Purplefan, I came round to your house to pick up your remote for you, but I couldn't get in the door.
The next time you get up, tie the door key to a piece of string and hang it behind the letter box. laugh.gif

Today I did a bit of hoeing in the garden then watered it. I then brushed up all the leaves and twigs in the drive.

I was at the Library today and one of the books I got is the life story of Richard Burton. With the life he led it should be an interesting read.

again, i can point a magnet to it, and hay presto.
