So to Elaine,Gill,Loo,Jeanette and Lynne and those on Bloglovin (I still have not figured out how to find you) I say welcome in.
On Thursday, after dinner, we decided that the evening was too nice to waste so set off to the Gower for a quick looksee.
This craft was till afloat and waiting for the next outing.
We walked around for a while and saw this lovely old building. It is so good to see these still in use, unlike the Tabernacle in Cwmgors.
We were in Penclawdd, only just in the Gower, next time Fran is here we will explore further and make a day out of it.
Friday was The Day, Junior was 4 and making sure that he told everyone at least 20 times.
He loves anything to do with cars and was thrilled with the selection of kits that Fran and I bought for him
This pensive look was due to the reluctance to leave his new toys combined with the longing to go on his Surprise Day Out. The day out won hands down.
The air current keeping the balls dancing proved a popular draw, he returned to it several times.
I think that it is safe to say that he enjoyed it.
James and Kaitlyn had fun as well.
Kaitlyn was in there and loving every minute of it.
After around 4 hours we left to visit Cerys,s Mum, She had stayed at home to get The Cake made and start the baking for Saturday,s party.
As you can see James was still in party mode, and yes that is me laughing my socks off in the background. kaitlyn can not believe her eyes, she was so stunned that her bottle of water stayed clenched between her teeth.
I am not certain just how many of these hats are floating about ready for Saturday, I am however certain that I will be wearing one at some point while people throw soft balls at me.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. A good time was had by all.
2. There was cake, it was delicious.
3. There was tea, and plenty of it.
4. I was allowed to go on one of the slides. 3 times.
5. No one took a photo. Phew.
Today has been a housework and chore day. There is a curry in the slow cooker and I will cook plain rice to go with it. Fran is stopping here for some dinner and a rest before driving back to London. That makes her final leg around 3 1/2 hours, much better than a 5 hour straight run.
Ben,s skin is showing a great improvement, all I am doing is bathing him twice weekly with a calming shampoo from the vet. Then twice daily I wash the sore areas with a dilution of hibiscrub and when dry smooth on some Fuciderm Gel. The initial tests indicate an under active thyroid. further tests have been carried out and we are waiting for the results.
He may be going on HRT!!!!
