Hello BOB here

Used to pass Roseberry Topping when I was visiting properties with the National Trust, thought would be good to climb it although too late is the cry.

It is a pretty area, look after yourself

Hi Allanah, poor you, I hope that it soon settles down:-( I hope that you've got plenty of cushions and foam wedges to get yourself comfortable - do rest up so that you're fit for the next round of 'dancing';-}

Oh Allanah, honey...so sorry for your fall..hate when that happens...Now! The very best place for you is here in my sunroom, on the lounge, where I can bring you whatever you need, keep you warm, let you sit in the sunshine and produce some Vitamin D, and watch chick flicks all day :) How's that?

I don't get much chance to do that myself..yesterday and last night i began and finished making Pepper Relish for hot dogs, sausages, omelets, whatever you want to put it on...oh...soooo good! From the pepper plants I started from seed last Spring. They are little, hollow, red, orange and yellow salad peppers, not hot, kind of fruity, so I added a little jalapeno juice to the vinegar solution I canned them in.

Today I am doing laundry, and paper work I didn't do last week while I was playing with all of you :) You behave, let those jabs do what they arre supposed to do!

Come on over when you are ready, the guest room is ready for guests!

Poor you. Wasn't so bad back in 'the day' when the reason for us falling over was usually alcohol related, and we bounced. Now IT HURTS.! So you have my sympathy. Rest up and you'll be back tripping the light fantastic in no time. Xx

Reply

Thanks, maybe have to drink more!

Reply

Definitely have to drink more allanah then it'll only hurt the next day and its way more fun!! Poor you that's not good, heading to Loran's looks like the best offer to me. Hope you feel better honey, lots of love Rx

Reply

Def. drink more. I have often suggested this to my sons, to let me..as I am permanently dizzy and hasve no balance mechanism, due to nerves being burnt out in inner ear, due to toxic doses of Gentamycin

. Si I figurre, if I'm permanetly dizzy, shouldn't getting drunk straighten me right up? Seems worth trying to me! Next Tea party, day after Thanksgiving would be most appropriate !!

Reply

Sounds like my kinda logic lorann, I must remember that one!!

I know this might sound awfully English ... but when's Thanksgiving, I missed the last tea party Rx

Reply

Rosie, it will be the day after our Thanksgiving, which is Thurs. Nov 28, so next Tea (or whatever else) Party is your 3pm on November 29. I will post it again closer to that date.

Bring any yummy you might like to share, so you can tell us about it

Lol, thanks for the laugh x

And you too !!

My arm is literally killing me from the pneumonia jab,but the other side(flu) is fine !!! Lol,feel crappy so nite nite from me xxxx

Reply

Cold compresses work on sore arms from jabs quite well. ? And even some Panadol if u need it! Sleep well xx

Reply

Give it time , it's just doing it's job ! Couple of days it should feel better but advice above should help , however if it gets inflamed and spreads then of course see the doc lol. It will be worth it, like you are xx

Morning,my arm is even worse this morning,!!! Can't even lift it boohoo :((( painkillers already taken.hope u feel bit better today xxx

Reply

It's true...when younger I.d fall over after too much..sometimes it was far toooo much and I just stayed there until someone found me! I'm sorry you are in so much pain..I'm going to make chocolate Baileys this Christmas.(never done it before ...so I see horrendous on the horizon ) I don't care if they don't look too good but they must have the desired effect! I.ll make some for all of you but might have to eat them all myself! I hope the pain eases....love the picture. Sending you a smile. Maryx

Pleeze tell me how yo make chocolate baileys! I have plum brandy and brandy Christmas cake on the go , but haven't done chocolate baileys before. ?

Reply

Not sure yet!!!! But I love both of them so thought I.d join them. My friend made Baileys one year...it was hard we had to use a knife and fork...in the end we just bit of the lump....very tasty though...when I've made the recipe I'll let you know but you know...I might just get a bar of chocolate and a bottle of Baileys and bit and sip...a lot easier. I'm going to a big Christmas Day dinner so my contribution is chocolate baileys, so I better get going. I wonder how many bars and bottles I.ll go through trying too make them...Hic-up.maryx

Reply

Mary, would it help to use Chocolate Elixir? I've used that in our coffee concoctions for Christmas. It is a clear, very concentrated liquid.

Reply

I'm going to buy a bottle of. Baileys and huge bar of dark choc today to practise the shape for my Christmas treats!!! So I appoligse for posts this evening in advance. As I'm not on meds at moment I can have a wee tipple. I'm also going to try and not only make my own Baileys but my own choc. My friend really goes to town with this dinner so I've got to make a huge effort. Mary x

Reply

Thank you. I will take any advice given...I've made the commitment and it's a huge party of family and friends, there will be 23 of us. (I have a very rich friend). I'm going to start having a go in the next two weeks and of course I.ll have to munch them all to see if I've managed it correctly!!!! Thank you I will try that thanks very much...I've got to make my own Baileys as well and I don't want to let myself down...of course I could wait until they had all drunk a lot before I bring them out!!! Maryx

Reply

Ok we NEED a full report and blog how to make them, I would love to have a go! Would make a nice addition with my home made chutney for pressies xx

Reply

Oh what lovely presents...my nana used to make things like that for Christmas...I was thinking I could make the Baileys pour into a little glass dish and pour the choc on top..if I put them in pretty dishes that would be quite good although I would love to make the liquor sweets and just hand them round very nonchalantly! I will keep you up dated...I may start this weekend as my knees are very bad so won't be walking. Maryx

Reply

Haven't they brought out a chocolate Baileys this year, maybe you could use it to make choc baileys ice cream?

BTW how's Paul Merton coming along?

Reply

That's a brilliant idea. I've just bought bottle of Baileys and choc and I have ice cream so I'm going to start this afternoon...I'm so bored today not in pain but just feel rotten and I'm still soaking wet so a HUGE glass of Baileys with ice will go down wonderfully...oh I forgot I'm not meant to be drinking it I'm meant to be making things with it but a girl must have some fun.!

Paul Merton for certain is coming on. I have the beginning and the end just filling in the middle...maybe after a ton of Baileys ice cream. Mary x

A poem..titled

I want.

I want turquoise water

And white sand,

I want a long cold

Drink in my hand.

I want to be able to swim

I want to clim the stairs

I want to shop and buy

Without worry or care.

I want to of course

Jump on and ride the horse,

I want to embrace that again

Without any pain.

I want to play the piano

Although I never managed it before,

I want to be able to get up

From lying on the floor.

I want to wake feeling well

Up and ready with the lark,

I want to take my six grandchildren

and run with them in the park.

But with R/A

That is now not the way

So I say...

Show me a field of green things growing

And gently heal my mind,

Let me again breath in beauty

In all that I find.

Let the autumn leaves

Make noises under my feet

And let me now accept what I now have

To make my life complete.

Mary x

I don't know how I managed to miss this post Alannah! Belated sympathy for you. I expect the bruises are looking quite spectacular by now.

I have taken a couple of tumbles, terribly embarrassing when done in public and such a challenge to get up again. I have to do it in installments. lol

Reply

Yes that was the thing, I had just had my knees injected, and couldn't get back up! Yes my back and shoulders are very colourful now, but I did manage to get some sleep last night thankfully xx
