    I’m enjoying all your Christmas trees vicariously, because I haven’t bothered. The parents of the wee one have got theirs up and decorated in a very adult manner, all silver and white and sparkly, and the wee one is not very interested. Think he needs to be involved in making not very good paper chains for an unevenly decorated tree to feel the…[Read more]

    • Afters Sheila, mine will be a glorious colour mess of old decorations from both our parents, things given to us by friends and Andy’s kids when they were little, chocolates so that all callers get one when leaving the house and it will be full of memories. My SiL will give off again that is not “chic” enough and I don’t care. :lol: :lol:

    If I haven’t been about much it’s because I am most comfortable lying down. Being erect seems to allow the weight of my arm to make it all worse, and I may make myself a sling to see if that helps.The pills supplied are making me feel nauseous, and this is not a fun-filled house at the minute. Did enjoy the picture of Jane in her cardy – she…[Read more]

    • She is blooming pleased with herself, Sheila and I’m only sorry to hear of your real pain and discomfort. Is there a walk in surgery that will fix you up with a sling? Can’t imagine it will be easy doing it yourself. Take care – I wish I could assist.

      • Good morning Bean. That is no fun at all for you, I wish we were all nearby, even if we couldn’t cure you we would make you laugh ;-) Take care :rose:

        • I just googled trapped nerve exercises and there are several You Tube videos including one with arm pain which might help.

    • Really sorry to hear this Sheila, tis a beggar feeling crook at any time, but always feels worse over Christmas. :-( Hope it eases for you very soon. :rose: :clover:

      • Get well soon Bean…A chiropractor might sort it out in a second you know its worth a try if you know of a reputable one :good:

    • Bloody insult to injury that the pain meds should make you feel sick !!!
      Codeine was a right Arsss for me .

    Your village is tops again – sounds like a really terrific evening for all ages – and I hope we can see these photographs soon. I need them.

    My father used to disappear up the hill that we had earlier flogged to the Forestry Commission, and come back down with a good specimen – some of the prices in the shops are eye-watering. Hope you find a good one.

    ANYTHING is more interesting than Brexit – have started to wonder if it is all part of a protracted campaign by the “elite” to make Brexiteers fall into line out of boredom. Would like to give David Cameron a real tongue-lashing for unleashing all this sh*t on us.

  • Beanstew posted a new activity comment 3 days, 7 hours ago

    It was pretty windy here too, but by taking pain killers before I went to sleep, I managed to sleep until 5.45am, which was a great improvement on the last few days. Like Cilla, I am waiting impatiently for THE photograph – most surprised not to have seen it on the national news yet….

    The worst bit of it is the persistent ache down my left arm and right into my finger tips which are also tingling – from the trapped nerve. But ’nuff said – I can almost hear my father tutting with disapproval (suffer quietly!).
    I like that hint you picked up about a tailor’s ham – wish I’d heard of it at the time when I needed it.

  • Beanstew posted an update 3 days, 7 hours ago

    Still feeling sorry for myself, and tolerating the pain and discomfort badly – and consequently full of admiration for the people who deal daily with disability and pain with grace. Got my new washing machine at 5pm yesterday, and must chase up the company AO for the 5 years extended warranty that is supposed to come with it – but no sign of.…[Read more]

    • Morning Bean. Sorry that your back is still a [email protected]@ger :-( so frustrating as well as painful. Good news on the washing machine, though. You can sit in front of it and watch its machinations which are probably much more interesting than the current tv. I hope it gets better soon. :rose: :rose: :rose:

    • Morning again Sheila! Sorry to hear you’re still in pain – but dare I say you might put up with it more knowing your laundry can take care of itself! My machine has a half-hour slot and I use this the most as I think it’s the most eco-friendly. Unfortunately though, it doesn’t play tunes like yours. Take it easy today by reading the instructions.

    • So sorry to hear you are still suffering Sheila, from your other click I see it’s a trapped nerve, not nice. Maybe playing with your new washing machine will distract you for a while. ;-)

  • Beanstew posted an update 3 days, 7 hours ago

    Good morning Tony – I can see you, and hope everything is well with you today. I tried Morrison’s beetroot and sultana rolls recently, and went toodling into the store yesterday to buy some more. But nada. So I’m going to phone them before trying again.

    • Morning Sheila :-) how is your back? Did your new washing machine get delivered and it is fitted? Hope you’re ok today. I have one sleeve sown in (lots going on yesterday and so I didn’t have time for both). Found a very good tutorial on using a tailor’s ham for the shaping and I made one from some socks – it certainly helped a lot. Have a good weekend!

    Don’t impale anyone on those winklepickers, you old swinger – and have a lovely time.

  • Beanstew posted an update 5 days, 8 hours ago

    Have done something bad to my back and am feeling very sorry for myself. Have pain referred down my left arm, and could hardly get downstairs just now. Will have to cancel Toenails, as painkillers supplied by GP make me dopey, and even with them. I do not think I could do it, and in fact would be daft to try. Thankfully, daughter is coming down…[Read more]

    • Good morning Sheila! You honestly can’t move that washing machine if you’ve done your back in! Someone else will have to help your daughter; otherwise you’ll really do some damage and that won’t be good for anyone! I’m really sorry to hear you’re in pain but please don’t make it worse!

    • Morning Sheila, really sorry to hear this and please do NOT take part in the washing machine manoeuvring. Have you had an X-ray/scan done? Definitely no toenails either, what a [email protected]@er. :-( Sending gentle hugs for a speedy recovery. :clover: :rose: :rose: :clover:

      • Good morning Bean. Am in agreement with the girls on not touching the washing machine. Having had many bad backs with gardening etc. I sympathise greatly. I hope this is short lived. Sending hugs from me also. :rose: :rose: :rose:

    • Listen to these ladies, Shelia, heaven fobid you don’t, they know where you live ;-) Sorry to hear about your injury – it is one of the most frustrating things to do to yourself. Take care and please take it easy.

    • Oh dear Shelia, sending gentle hugs,like Karen and echo what everyone else has said. Can a neighbour help?

      • Snap to all that has been said !.. for goodness sake, take it easy Sheila. We are none of us as invincible as we think … gentle hugs from me too :love: :rose:

    Good morning Anne – thank goodness you are here to keep us right about birthdays.

  • Beanstew posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    And Happy Birthday from me too.

  • Beanstew posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    Blooming good with the cards, Cilla. I wrote the ones to go down south yesterday, and popped them all into the gift bags – but I still have the local ones, and the ones for posting to do. Might get some done today before I go out – because if I don’t they will still be sitting on the sidetable taunting me. Enjoy today, Cilla.

    I suppose the new chairs must have removed a certain uncertainty from mealtimes, and enabled you to concentrate on the flavour of the food. It must be difficult to even think of the creaminess of cheese sauce when you might be tipped on your ass at any moment. And well done on the timing of the purchase – will be able to eat Christmas dinner…[Read more]

    • hi there, thanks Anne was feeling tickety-boo, but now have a nasty cold :-(
      yes Cilla got all the sparkly stuff up now and feeling christmasy :lol: bit sniffly sneezy though with this cold :confused:
      and yes sheila meal times were a bit hit and miss literally :confused: :confused: :confused: but now at least can look forward to…[Read more]

    No ice here, and it’s even dry here too – so the making of a passable day if everyone would shut up about Brexit. Hopefully the cake is good and your friend has lots of interesting gossip. Enjoy today, Karen.

  • Beanstew posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    If I shut my eyes and concentrate hard, I can feel the wind in your hair (but thwarted by the headband), and the frost crunching beneath your feet. Everything is quiet (even that neighbour) and it’s doing you lots of good. Hurrah!

    I’ll be travelling later today to take festive presents to my sister for delivery south to my brother and offshoots, and then travelling onwards to have dinner with my cousin and her daughter in Helensburgh where I went to school. Her daughter met a totally romantic Frenchman many years ago, and the pair have been together ever since. Now they…[Read more]

      Good morning Bean. It all sounds lovely, apart from the driving…..how far are you travelling? I like the sound of the romantic Frenchman, the perfect love story………and somewhere for the relatives to visit :-) Have a wonderful time and kep those tissues handy. I haven’t seen the Boots advert either.

    • Morning Sheila :-) how very romantic indeed!! Safe travelling and don’t forget the tissues!

    • gertie replied 1 week ago

      Hallo Sheila … I went and looked at the advert … don’t let it bother you :confused: :lol:
      Remember that we have a daughter who married her Frenchman and now we have four beautiful Anglo/French Grandchildren too :dance: :lol: :love: :rose:

  • Beanstew posted an update 1 week, 1 day ago

    YooHoo Anne – I’m just off and I can spot your wee black cat avatar having a sniff about and wondering if it’s worth saying anything. I’d stay for a bit if I could – but duty calls, and I must shuffle off. Enjoy today Anne.

    • gertie replied 1 week ago

      Sorry I missed you Sheila … had a doctor’s appt :excruciating: where he was half an hour behind anyway :confused: :lol: :rose:
