Happy Weekend to all my bloggy friends out there. First of all, I must say a very big "thank you" to all of you who left such kind and loving comments on my post about Kelly. Emma has spoken to her, and she actually has three tumours on the brain. Her Consultants are meeting on Monday morning to prepare a care plan for her. Emma said that she was her usual cheerful self, saying that she had beat it once, and she is certainly going to beat it this time as well! I do believe in the power of prayer, and if we all continue to keep Kelly in our prayers, that miracle might just happen.
Now for some happy news! I have a friend who I meet up with every three weeks, and we go out for a lovely meal at lunch time, trying new restaurants all the time, accompanied, of course, with the obligatory glass of Rose`!
She is a real laugh, one of those people who it is just so nice to be with. She is called Sue Lavender, which I've always thought was a beautiful name. At present, her and her partner are on holiday in America for three weeks. Anyway, I read on facebook yesterday that they got married on Valentine's Day in the Orange County Courthouse, in Orlando, Florida. A complete surprise to everyone and it was just a spur of the moment thing. They are a lovely couple, and I couldn't be more happy for them. Apparently, they then went on to the Kennedy Space Centre to celebrate.
It's a bit of a hotchpotch of photos this week - no theme at all! The following are some lovely daffodils, which hubby brought in for me from the garden yesterday. The first ones, so that surely is another sign that Spring can't be far away.
I know that there are some of you who don't actually like picking flowers from the garden, but we really do have hundreds of them at the bottom of the garden, as you can see from the header photo, so it seems a shame not to bring just a little sunshine into the house!
The next photo is of Ruby, and, she was very happy with the little Hallo Kitty that I gave her for Valentine's Day. It goes with the larger one that she had for Christmas.
I've had my iPhone on Contract for over two and a half years, so I did a free upgrade on Friday (well, it cost me £25, but when you consider how much they would cost to buy, that's nothing!). The camera was good on the older model, but this one has an 8 pixel camera, so I was just playing around with it and used the reverse option on it to take a photo of myself.
I can't remember whether I told you that Ruby has been going to Ballet class for the last month -needless to say, she absolutely loves it. I was babysitting on Valentine's evening so that my daughter and her hubby could go out for a meal, and I had settled them both into bed. Anyway, Eli went to sleep almost immediately after the bedtime stories, but I could hear Ruby up there shuffling around! Anyway, she came down, complete with tutu over her pyjamas, and proceeded to dance and twirl all around the room! Really, it is at moments like that, that make me so happy. I was a good grandma though, and put her right up to bed again, because I knew she had to be up for pre-school in the morning.
I had a text from my daughter the next morning, so say that both Eli & Ruby were sobbing, because they thought I would still be there, and they had to put up with mummy and daddy! LOL!!
Eli goes to Little Dragons, which he also loves. I do think it is good for them too. It is called Little Dragons from age 4 - 7, and then it becomes Tae kwon do!
Eleanor had her injections yesterday for her trip to India at the end of this month. She is going with the school and she is SO excited. They are visiting Charities over there that carry out cataract operations for children, so it will probably be an eye opener for her, but a wonderful experience all the same.
Oh, I nearly forgot the photo of little Alfred who was enjoying the love on Valentine's Day!
Well, I seem to be rambling on a bit today, so I think I had better say goodbye again for now. I hope you are keeping well, and happy to see the days getting a little longer each week.
See you again soon.
