Hi there all my little bloggy friends.  Hopefully all is well with you in your little corner of the world. 

I'm feeling pretty excited at the moment, because this afternoon my daughter and granddaughter will be arriving from France, and staying until the 2nd March. Yay! It will be so good to see them again.  They always make me feel brighter when they're here. 

After three weeks of messing around with my current Internet Provider, I have now changed to another one, but it will still be another two weeks before I am up and running again.  Anyway, onwards and upwards!

I just wanted to say a big "thank you" to all those of you who are still taking the time to come over to see me and leave a comment, even though I have not been able to leave so many comments on your blogs as usual - your friendship really is appreciated.

I missed going to see the film "The Help" when it first came out at the end of last year, as I was in the middle of reading the book for our monthly Book Club read.  Anyway, it has been showing in our local cinema for two days only, so my friend and I went to see it last evening.  All I can say, is "brilliant".  I thoroughly enjoyed it! 

Sending big hugs your way.

The signs and sayings in this post are very true, about friendship.
Have fun when your daughter and grandchild visit; I know you will.

What a wonderful blessing to have daughter and family come and stay for a visit. I'm so excited for you. As you know I miss mine so much. It doesn't look like a visit is forth coming in the near future darn!
So do please enjoy for me as well.
I know you will!
Love all the little saying you have posted.
Yes! The Help was excellent. I had to buy the DVD it was so good.
So glad to hear you will be up and running soon.
It is so hard when our providers don't meet our needs.
Many blessings

I have been having issues with leaving comments on several blogs, but have been visiting you, Diane. I was planning to send you a quickie email today, but seeing your latest post has obviated this need for now. Just so good to hear from you and know that things are looking up and now you'll have two of your most favourite people in all the world keeping you company. I hope that rash has cleared by now? Big, big hug! Enjoy every moment of your time together and forget about us, please! We'll be here to welcome you back warm heartedly when you're just Derby & Joan again, OK? xxx

Dear Thisisme,

I feel like it's been too long since I've stopped by and taken in your beautiful flowers - the ones currently in your header are stunning - I found myself leaning in and wanting to inhale deeply. Such beauty!

I'm thrilled for you and the two lovelies that are visiting you; I wish all of you the best of times. Enjoy and make some wonderful memories.

Think of you and sending you all Happy Thoughts!

Good Morning....I was so happy to see you back with a post if only for a bit! What fun the girls for a fun visit. I hope you are feeling better and I know they will help cheer you up no matter...!
My goodness that is one of the prettiest pictures of Ms Eleanor you've posted! She is so beautiful, Diane!
Have a great time and sending you big hugs and wishes of health...

Enjoy your family visiting Denise, I am sure you will all have a lovely time.

I really hope you get your internet connection up and running soon, it is such a nuisance and we all miss you.

Have a good week.


Mynx said...

how wonderful to have your family visit and I am glad you are finally getting your internet fixed.
So frustrating when you are used to doing so much online

Shelly said...

I am so glad your internet woes will soon be coming to an end. What a wonderful visit you will be having with your daughter and grandaughter, and I'm sure they are just as excited about it as you are!

Loved all your quotes, and The Help was truly amazing to me, both the book and the movie. I was gone most of last week and so it is good to pop in here and say, have a wonderful day, my friend!

Hello, dear Thisisme! I didn't realize that the Parisian contingent was on its way to see you again. I hope it includes your dear grand-dog Alfred. When he arrives please give him a pat and a biscuit for me (right after his potty break). I very much agree with the wisdom dispensed by Mark Twain. Small people try to make you feel small. Great ones lift you up and get you in touch with your own greatness. Young people, in fact all people, should be careful of the company they keep. You've been doing an excellent job of staying in touch and working through your internet difficulties. I hope the worst is over. If we're ever out of touch with each other we will keep the faith that our friendship is still there as sure as the stars above. I'm so glad to know you watched The Help and enjoyed it. For those who aren't aware of it, Bryce Dallas Howard, the actress who played the small minded, chocolate pie eating Hilly, is the daughter of director Ron Howard. Bryce gave birth to a baby girl a month ago. Have a wonderful visit with your loved ones today, dear Thisisme!

Enjoy your time with Emma and granddaughter! Sending many many smiles!

You will have so many memories to make and stories to tell. Have fun! The Help was terrific!

Of course we are missing you, but good to hear you may have sorted the internet and now you have visitors to enjoy. I must move The Help to the top of Mt TBR!

Dear Diane, You are a star and I've never forgotten that you're here.

I'm so happy that you'll have a visit with your family, they are truly wonderful and I know they'll help to cheer you.

I love the sayings and the picture from The Help. I loved the movie so much that I read the book too!

Sending hugs your way!

Stella said...

So glad your family is coming to visit. Have a wonderful time visiting. I have wanted to see The Help and thought it might make a good girl's night in moviw.

Odie Langley said...

I must say my sweet friend that for someone who doesn't have internet service you are amazing me with your awesome blogs and gorgeous pictures like the ones on today of your daughter and grandaughter. Lovely work.

Still can't understand how you could have so much trouble, with an internet provider. -sigh-

Best of luck.

Enjoy your family company.

What a wonderful time you're going to have with your family! I love the little quotes you've displayed. Good luck with the new Internet provider.

Hi Diane, Have a wonderful time with your family. I saw two of my grandchildren last weekend, lots of fun.

Hope you are feeling better soon, and that your rash disappears. take care Anne x

Retired English Teacher said...

SOOO good to read your post. Having your granddaughter and daughter there for a visit will really make life great for you. Enjoy and treasure your time together.

I loved reading "The Help" and enjoyed the movie. It was well done. I just always wish that movies captured more of the book.

Here's to hoping the new internet provider works better for you. You have been more patient that I would have been through this time of having no service.

Bouncin Barb said...

That's the best news my awesome friend! Having the family there with you is good medicine! I can wait 2 more weeks if you can! Enjoy your time with them and say hello! Hugs and Love!

Eva Ason said...

Dear Diane, How wonderful that you will have your family from France with you again. Here things are the same more or less, looking forward to the weekend of course. And have some work drawn up :) Was going to send you an email when I saw your post :) Wishing you a fab evening and weekend! Big hugs


Chatty Crone said...

Have fun with your daughter and granddaughter.

I love your sayings/quotes.

Hope you get up and running soon!


Olive Cooper said...

Please know my experience in the deep South in the 60's was nothing like "The Help" although I liked the book-all maids I knew were treated very well. I have been missing you and glad you are getting it sorted out, olive.

Teresa - in the Middle Side of Life said...

what wonderful news to have your daughter and granddaughter visit.

glad that you're getting your internet all fixed back up again. sorry it's taking so long, though.

Susan said...

The girls photos are simply beautiful. You will have a wonderful time when they come to visit. Is Alfred coming too? So glad to see you today. I love your Mark Twain quote!!! I know that is so true...positive re-inforcement is what we all need most of the time. There's positive in all of us, although, sometimes I've had to drag it out of a friend! Love your post...hope you're arms are calm for now. Take care, hugs to you my friend.♥ Oh, and a dear heart too!

lyndylou said...

Glad you got your internet sorted, I couldn't survive without my internet!

I am glad your daughter is coming to visit, it will be just what you need to lift your spirits. Enjoy.

Marsha @Spots and Wrinkles said...

Loved the pictures!

And I did not know that the phrase "hang out" was in use when Mark Twain was writing. So I learned something! :)

Have a fun-filled visit with your daughter and granddaughter.

orchid said...

Dearest Diane,
Wow, I hope you are having wonderful time with your lovely daughter and angels♡♡♡
And, also hoping that your internet will be connected soon!!!
I seem to be hooked with a lot of PC related matters to deal with (^^;)

Love you always, xoxo Miyako*

That's a lovely header picture! Did you take it yourself?

EmptyNester said...

I have not been to see it or read the book yet. I get so angry about racial issues. But I've heard nothing but fantastic things about both! Hope you are enjoying your visitors to the fullest!
