Here again.

     Hello again,OHHH !I do feel sorry for myself I'm sat here with a lemon,paracetamol and honey homemade drink to help with my cold,my nose is sore from blowing it and my whole body wants to curl up and sleep,but I know my poor hubby would swap places with me in a blink of an eye.He is feeling better in himself (in my last post he was not good) he is more of the joking person that I know but still his leg is the same and still in pain.He is hobbling about the house and did go out with me for a ride in the car during the week just so he could feel normal, things are getting a bit better its just going to be a slow crawl but I am always going to be here to help him as long as he needs me to, which is what marriage is all about isn't it. The stitches have all gone now so I think that must feel a bit easier for him but I'm still putting a clean dressing on each day, yesterday I had a little helper when Billy was here and we played docs and nurses with a real patient,bless him he was a good help made sure Dan-Dan was comfy not hurting while the dressing was ripped off.I know its a bit gory but just thought I would show you his scare,as you can see he had steristrips put over the other stitches which where dissolving one,he had staples put in last op which were not nice,you can also see the scares from previous ops.

 The sun is shinning again today and some one was telling me the week ahead is to be the same so I'm going to make the most of it and tidy the garden and pots at the front of the house ready for winter,we have lots of little birds in the garden coming to fight over the seeds and fat balls I have put out for them 3 little blue tits where chasing each other off the table as I was looking this morning they reminded me of 3 little boys I know who chase each other about for the toy the other has just picked up.The days are so short now and will be even more in another week when the clocks go back I dread the dark nights,I love the coziness of winter but as I am sure Iv said before I just wish we didn't have dark nights.If we are to have snow again this year I hope it is like it was 2 yrs ago when we had a lot I know its not good when we have to get about but we do get a proper summer when we have snow in the winter.I do like to see the seasons change and winter means snow to me, sorry if you disagree with me its just the way I am.Candles and soft lights are always twinkling in our house in autumn and winter and spring and summer lol,I love to wander around the house when its dark and see what it looks like in the dark and see the images from the candles,I know I live in airy fairy land,but who doesn't go on be truthful you know you do!!
     Well I m going to cook dinner now son will be in from work at 6pm and I like to have a hot meal ready for him especially now it is cold as he goes to work on his motorbike,its a good 20miles run and I know whats its like at this time of year on a motor bike it can be quite cold and a hot meal is always welcome.Toad in the hole mash potato and veg's tonight will do my cold good as well although I am not keen on sausages but I will have the veg's and gravy,what are you all having to eat this evening?

   See you all soon Love Jill xxx


  I have a confession to make,I started this post over a week ago but have not got round to posting it with one thing and another I did not get round to finishing it and now I have forgot what I was going to say.I'm going to post it anyway then I will do another one to tell you how hubby is doing.I'm sorry about this but hope you can understand what I am going on about,I'm full to the brim with cold sneezing and coughing all over the place and my head is in a spin more than usual, the next bit is what I had saved !!!

          Oh I am feeling so lazy today,I have lots of things I could be getting on with but its just one of those days where I have done quite a few jobs but nothing to exhausting.  My hubby had an op on his back last week and things have not been so good.It is the third op he has had on his back and I think that he is worse now than he was before it.Before the op his legs hurt him and his right leg had patches on it which where numb and his foot was always cold,now he has not got much feeling in it at all and his foot is like a block of ice.He is in a lot of pain and feels like he's dragging his leg he isn't but that is how it feels.The doc says its early days yet which is right but it is quite worrying when still young and not been able to get about.He is keeping in good spirits and quite a good patient Iv not had to take his crutches off of him so he cannot get up but suppose that is early days as well,lol,no I wouldn't do that really!Maybe this is why I'm feeling lazy today think I am more mentally tired than physically tired tho, worry does make you tired doesn't it.
We woke to a frost again this morning but it has been a beautiful day the sun has had its hat on all week in fact the last 2 weeks have been good I love this time of year when you get up its nippy and fresh.The garden is looking a bit sorry for itself but has some lovely colours in it, golden and crunchy leafs falling from the trees and the little birds sitting on the table first thing in the morning waiting for their breakfast and I must admit they are usually the first ones to be fed on a morning I feel quite guilty if I don't go and say good morning to them and give them some seeds or bread before I sit down to my toast and tea. Iv not got out for a walk this week with looking after hubby more than usual, to take some photos of the trees in all their splendid colours but I'm hoping to next week,Iv got some lovely pics of the sky at t time as the sun goes down looking all warm and mysterious and the moon shining proud in the sky lighting the countryside while its dark.

I told you a couple of posts ago that I would tell you what I got for my birthday and with all that's gone on Iv not got round to it but here are some pics of just a few of my prezzies.
Lovely warm snuggle dressing gown.

Kindle which a friend bought me,Iv never wanted one but Barry knows how much I love my books so thought I could do with one I do like it but it feels strange not holding a book,I will still buy books I could never let it replace them.
Lovely perfume that hubby bought me very expensive but worth every penny and as Cheryl Cole says "I'm worth it ".lol.

Very pretty necklace and little sign from my little grandsons.I always say this to them when I tuck them in to bed when they stay.

Cath Kidston hand bag another hubby prezzie I think he spoilt me.
