    Afternoon everyone, We have rain and it's been so heavy flooding rural roads Took dogs out to the woods, so I sat in car with crochet Then we stopped for coffee and a scone Pity the school is being so petty about the wedding, it makes you wish you had said nothing to them and just let them believe she was sick, I hope you enjoy your steak eliza I am sure you will look lovely in your outfit on Thursday Su2ie, at least it's your EX mil, you know she probably thinks nothing is her son's fault, he will be perfect in her eyes, ignore her, what was the party for I must have missed that post, sorry Linda lucky you strawberry and Sun too, enjoy your afternoon of tennis, is the turtle going to be ready on time? Denise hope you relax and enjoy the holiday after your hectic decorating spree, you deserve a complete change and pamper Lisa your embroidery is nice on the turquoise fabric, you will be able to make some lovely gifts Time for a wee fiesta I think , dogs all snoring except Ruth's dog who is still young and energetic, he will hopefully lie down soon Will pop back later crafty friends

    Hi me again, eldest daughter thought outfit my was good, but Ruth said (pink and grey) don't know if I fancy it, well she might lose this battle Met her future in-laws, had them here for coffee, we are going out for a meal shortly, all the talk was wedding, think the men are sick fed up with it My son in law is still getting intravenous antibiotic cocktail he hopes come Monday they will allow him to start oral meds, his leg is still dark red and swollen, Craft wise I am floating between embroidery, quilting, and table decorations, I think this evening I will wire the ivy for bouquet s, Lovely and sunny here but believe rain is forecast, Linda I love rhubarb, but Ruth's dog ate our root over the winter. We had it covered with a bucket and surrounded with manure,so he must have been passing wind for days afterwards, as only bucket was left Hi Tracey, I am like you with technology,lol Must go feed my dogs and chase hubby into shower prior to going out, bfn
