What's Up in Your Week? PART 11
Last Post :
I've seen it on the news the terrible weather you're having over in the USA. Some of the temperatures are unbelievable, sorry could'nt live in weather thats cold anymore.
Yes terrible weather, stay safe. So cold & being snowed in is not good either. Next week every da is going to be just under or over 40 deg. Hot stuff I really dilike the hot weather. Yuck.
It's warmed up! Now it's raining and we are having a mass snow melt. Flooding is a issue now. I am so glad the freezing temps are gone.
All you gals take care and have a great weekend.
Hi Pami, are you high enough to be safe? When Peter & I traveled through part of Europe, we always went in Winter. It was good because less people want to travel at that time. LOL. We found out why. So you take good care Pami. We are thinking of you while the melt is on. I am sure Ingrid is have something like that too. Hugs Girls.
Hello all here at Mad Hatters. Yes Lynn flooding going on and a thunderstorm in January but its Indiana weather. Very weird. Take care all and have a great weekend all. Hugs.
Wishing you all a happy weekend, Enjoy, hugs
Its half way through Saturday, the week-end goes to quick. Pauline how are your family going now? My M-I-L is still in hospital. She is a tiny bit better, but everytime they get her out of bed to sit in the chair. That was the 1st time yesterday. They have to drug her up for the pain of moving. Poor Peter goes every day & when they talk she thinks she is back at her fathers house in Germany, then she is here & then back there. Who knows what is next???? Hugs.
Hello friends..now finally weekend is back ... the weather is terrible ... every day the sky is gray and it rains .. next week it will be a bit colder again ... to 0 ° ....at the time it is always up to 10 ° .. a very mild winter. I wish you all a wonderful weekend and hugs to everyone...
Lynnie that sounds as if your mother in law is confused ... may be the first signs of dementia, there only the nursing home is the right place . ... that you can not cope...big hugs to you
Thanks Ruthie I appreciate your advice. I would NEVER live next door or with her ever again. I would have to leave. U know what I mean. Hugs.
Lyn, ah your poor M-I-L. It must be very hard for her. I am sure on some level she is lucid. I can imagine how painful it would be to move on a broken pelvis and to sit! I know when I broke some bones in my foot and ankle the pain was horrible. May be the pain meds are keeping her confused to along with her age and the stress of the accident. It's good your hubby is able to visit with her often. Thanks I am very safe. The rain in my area so far have not caused anything but minor flooding. From what I can see on the second floor all looks good and traffic seems to be moving along. I've even seen the wildlife again this morning. They were gone all week except for a few birds yesterday. Yes, traveling on winter roads are treacherous. I can imagine being from Australia and traveling to Europe was a huge shock for you. You will always remember it though.
Ingrid! The weather is strange this year. Hope the flooding where you are isn't to bad. Be safe.
Ruth, after the huge winter storm I think I like rainy weather in the winter better. Do you normally get a lot of snow there?
Take care and be safe everyone.
Well sorry girls to break your bubble the weather here is fantastic, went to the beach today and the sea was turquoise and warm! My group last night was full loads of different nationalities, German, Spanish, Romaniam, American, Canadian and more, we all got a bit p--sed on the beer, good night was has by all. Then at midnight we went to a party. When I got home my hubby was just leaving for the Golf club. lol
Pauline you are a PARTY tart. Always coming home when the birds are waking up. Just as well Dom knows you & loves you and Golf. LOL. These are great photo's. How is Steph now?
Steph and Patrice are doing fine, she stays over with Lucas at his new place a couple of times a week, last week he asked her to marry him but she said no she needs more time to get things sorted out with him. So we'll just have to wait and see.
These pics were taken yesterday afternoon at Patrice's house, it was his birthday party.
Happy Monday Pauline and all. Sorry about M I L Lynn. Who is that again? Glad she is feeling better. I didn't getting the flooding that was suppose to happen Pam and glad it didn't happen. Great pictures Pauline. Hugs.
Thanks Ingrid, hugs back at you !
Nice party Pauline and the photo's are so enjoyed to see to.
Ingrid, glad the flooding missed you. It did for me to. We are suppose to get more snow tonight but just a couple of inches.
Take care everyone, and enjoy your week.
Could someone send a bit of rain over to me please ?
Ingrid U R so sweet M I L is Mother-In-Law. Still in hospital giving the staff a hard time.
Pauline they are good photo's & Steph is a very clever girl. Doing the right thing by all of them.
NOW rain....hello we had 43deg today 44 tomorrow. Maybe down to 41 on Friday. Yes all over a 100 in the old measure. I plants are just burning like a crisp. YUCK. Hugs.
At least your M I L is in the right hands, feel sorry for the staff though ! lol
Hi Pauline...I love your pics you party girl..
rain??...yes I can send it to you, we have too much and we need sunshine .
Pami,indeed we normally get a lot of snow , but this year the winter is a springtime..
Lynnie I also feel sorry for the staff...lol ... but better them than you .. heeee
Hi Ruth, Pauline and Lynnie and Pam. Hope you ladies have a lovely Wednesday. Yes I am getting snow right now but not very much. Thanks Lynnie and you are sweet too.
Lyn, that high heat is a energy zapper! Poor plants to.
Pauline, for some reason I would have thought you had rain there frequently. I don't know why I assumed that but I did.
Ingrid, a bit more snow tonight and tomorrow. At least it will only be a few inches this time and not a couple of feet. That makes us both happy.
Ruth, it seems the weather is behaving a bit odd all over right now. Crazy weather. When I picture Germany in the winter it's with snow! How nice you can enjoy spring like weather, unless it effects the water surplus, then that is not good at all.
You are right Pami, the weather is crazy ALL over the world. Yet still people say there is no climate change. LOL.....NOT. They should open both eyes not just one. If we could all share our weather for a week, everyone would be happy. I do dislike the heat. But I got up at 6am left the house by 7am started working in my first customers garden by 7.15 am, then the nexy one at 8.30am by 9,30 I was off home. Then I took the dog for a walk for 3/4 hour. She loved it but I was pooped. The cooler on & the computer I'm happy. Oh before I sat down I had to top up water dishes for the birds. I have a bird bath out the front, in the open part of the fernery there is a big Tee tree, I have two wire hanging baskets with an ice cream container in each. So many different birds come & take a drink throughout the day. Lucky me. Its fantastic.
You were a busy lady Lyn and got so much done so early. We feed the birds and squirrels in the winter here. Dried corn and peanuts mostly. They about dance on the patio when they have run out. Take it easy only a few more days of hot weather and then you get a cool off or so I heard on our news. We have more snow for today and tomorrow but nothing dramatic.
Have a good day everyone.
Hi Rose & Pauline I moved your post girls from 'Hello' to hear so everyone could see it. Hope you don't mind. I know you would be very up set Rose & we are here for you. OK. Hugs
Hi Rose we are here for you...but there must be a reason that Zen was suspended.
I know Zen also and it doesn't surprise me..has gone long enough.
Excuse me that I say this ,but I always say what I think ... am not a flatterer..
hugs to everyone
Hope your all having a good Friday/weekend so far.
Truthfully, I wasn't shocked either about Zen being suspended.
Maybe she will be back.
Lyn, is it cooler today?
The fires look so bad. God Bless the fire workers.
Those poor tennis players!
Pami we had a gray and rainy Friday again...the temperature is 7°..but 44 degrees would be too much for us.
The fire workers are doing a dangerous job...every year the same forest fires...terrible.
I cannot believe just how wonderful those fire fighters are. Just brilliant. Yes a little cooler today thanks. Those tennis players were told it was too hot one day & thank goodness they didn't play. Enough is enough. Its too dangerous.
Girls these firefighters can put my fire out anytime ! lol
there are a few that could also delete my fire anytime
Now Pauline ....most of these guts tits are as big as mine are you sure girl?
Yeh, I'm sure Lyn.
he heee Lynnie..I'm at home for lunch, it's colder today and it begins raining...The garden is full of birds, we always feed ... blackbirds, robins, thrushes, Bullfinch and sparrows ... On Saturday, a hawk has caught a sparrow. now back to work..see you all later
Dont work to hard Ruth ! Have a great week everybody. hugs
Weather wise it is pretty good. Much better than it has been. Everything else is ****. You can guess what that is. Have a great day everyone.
Glad about your weather Lyn. My girlfriend and her husband are arriving from Liverpool UK to Guadeloupe on the 4th February, I cant wait problem is they are only staying for ten days which is'nt really long enough but its better than nothing. It will be there first visit here so Dom and I will have to take them for the full tour of the island, so happy. My friends name is Ruth and she is one of the most funniest people I have ever met, so we'll have some fun.
Cute post Pauline thanks for something nice, bad luck the dog didn't tell you though???????
True ! lol
Hello .. enjoy your company Pauline. How awesome to have them come for a visit.
Not much going on on my side of the computer today other then staying inside and staying warm. It's cold and going to get colder again ........ with a bit of snow.
Hope you are all doing well, enjoy your day.
Hello Pam, Pauline, Lynn and Ruth. Hope you gals are doing well. Same with me Pam. Cold and staying warm and I had snow last night and its suppose to snow tomorrow. Enjoy your day all. Hugs.
Brrrrrrr, I'm happy not to be in the cold weather, its lovely here, been lying in the sun to get a bit of a tan before my friends arrive! lol
yesterday we got some snow...I lalalalike it
hey Pauline ....enjoy the hugs to everyone
I will Ruth, no problem. Keep warm all of you. lol
Enjoy the sun for me Pauline. These winter clippers moving through have really brought out temps down way below freezing. We have had some snow today and last night but not huge amounts. Glad you got some snow to enjoy Ruth. Ingrid I heard spring will be here sooner or later for us! Lyn hows the heat? Hope it is still cooler for you.
Just a quick letta ya know sort of thing my computer is giving me a few problems so if I don't stop by that's the reason.
Take care and have a good day everyone.
Hi Girls I am sorry I couldn't be here yesterday, one of my mother-in-laws sisters died the day before. So it was a bit busy one way or another. She lived in Germany, but because Peter's sister is out here visiting her mother, I have been getting requests to e-mail back & forward while Gitta is here because she is the power of attorney. So I'm off to work for a few hours & ......I'll be back OK. Hugs all.
we're thinking of you Lynnie...hugs
yes Pami , I like this winter weather but it's not a lot of snow, only a bit ... have a good day everyone
Good luck Lyn, hope everything goes fine for you.
I know I keep saying this but ' I love this thread' So Pauline not long to go before your friends come to stay. Getting really excited now? So what will you show them first?
Yes I am Lyn, also it makes you do a lot of things around the house which I have been putting off for awhile, lol. painting, throwing stuff out, Dom is cleaning the patio around the pool. They arrive at 6pm Tuesday 4th so they will be jet lagged, Wednesday we'll probably just go the beach and later that night I'll take them to my group. Cant wait.
Great stuff, but before & after you show them your group....get a taxi because
these little guys appear with drinks then you drive home.....naughty girl. Better safe than sorry OK. As the date gets closer you wont be able to sleep. Heeeeee

Hi everyone, I have the grand kids on the way to spend the night so won't be on till late tomorrow. Have a great Saturday/Sunday and Happy Australia Day to.
Thanks Pami. Lucky grand kids having you I say. Also you having them. Have fun, they will never forget you being so nice. Hugs.
Another party last night my friend Valeria is leaving Guadeloupe next Friday so she held a party last night at her place. She was born in Siberia Russia, and then moved to Berlin Germany. She is going back to Berlin to see family and friends and then she is going to work in Camaroon Africa. I wish her all the luck in the world.
Hi everyone, I am sorry I have not been around much and especially like I thought I would be back but I still have my grand son with me. He has been sick and with the snow storm and cold and school cancelled for today and already for tomorrow he has just stayed with me. The road my daughter lives on is closed to all but emergency travel because of snow drifts bigger then any normal car or truck. Plows have just been unable to keep up with the plowing because of blowing snow and fresh snow every day and now this bitter cold again. Hopefully things will be back on track Wednesday.
Thanks Lyn for those nice words. The grands are my treasures. They are growing up quick to. My grand daughter is 15 and my grand son 10. I have 4 step grand sons to. The twins are 22 and the oldest is 25. The youngest step grand son is 6. I don't see them much at all anymore but it's always fun when we are able to get together. Usually just a couple times a year.
Pauline, your friend Valeria is a globe trotter! How awesome to be able to go to all those places I think. Have fun with the company.
Ruth, you are so lucky to be having such a easy winter. We have enough snow on the ground to last till summer. They are actually runing out of places to pile it in the towns. Goodness it's a site. Things should be heading back to normal on Wednesday for me.

Cheers Pami, sorry to hear your grandson has been sick, also sorry about you weather, no wonder my friends cant wait to be in the Caribbean, problem is I havent mentioned to them about the mosquito's! they are in for a shock ! lol
Hi Girls, Pauline you might have to be kind to your friend and go buy her a tube of Aloe Vera Gel. So she can have it with her all the time. I remembered that you had a plant but she needs the tube of stuff. Plus it is a relief from Sunburn, minor burns, and other minor skin irrations. With mossy bits you put the gel on & the itch goes, plus the swelling too. Brilliant stuff. OK. Doctor Lyn...ask Ruth.
Pami you are a great person & yes that is why they all like you. As they get older, be friends with them on Face Book or e-mail or both. Then you can see what is happening & join in with them in your e-mails. Just an idea.
Lucky Ruth, you have some rain.....we have dry brown everywhere. No mountains of snow or mosquito's either. Wow we are jealous, we I am anyway. Hugs everyone have a wonderful day.
Thank you Doctor Lyn for the advice, I knew I could count on you, hugs
WOOHOO Pauline you party tiger
Pami it's true, we really do not have a real winter, it is cold since last week but the forecast says it will be warmer again, but I like snow. LOL
Can you send some snowflakes ?
Lynnie ... I know that you prefer colder weather and I think you would feel comfortable with us... see..Peter waves to you ...
my cuddly blanket is waiting ... see you tomorrow ... hugs to all
Hello all here at Mad Hatters. Hope everyone is well and having a lovely Tuesday. I hope so Pam in Spring coming close and sorry about your Grandson being ill. Feel better soon. Very cold here and expecting snow on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Stay warm all. Hugs.
Hope you're all fit and healthy girls, cos I've been on a diet for the past few days so I look good when my friends arrive, must get some sun tomorrow with my grandson in the pool. Yes Lyn I'll be careful ! lol
Well Ingrid I could send U some of our heat to melt your snow. Friday 41 Saturday the same. Sunday 43. Today was only 39. WOW. My sister-in-law has to go back to London tomorrow. My mother-in-law has an ex-ray & she has 3 breaks in her pelvis not one. One break will never heal, the broken bones send toxins through the body, she will have to be is what they call 'High Care' never go home. At the most 12 months to live, more like 6 months the doctor said. So from tomorrow on I am back on duty, helping poor Peter. Plus two good but old friends are ill, husband & wife and I will be helping them too. So the next few weeks will be flat out plus doing my gardening for my old customers. If I miss a day or fall asleep you know why now. Hugs guys sorry. Enjoy Pauline. Hugs to Ruthie, Pami & Ingrid.
You take care Lyn, dont over do it. You seem to never stop and if you are sick what happens to all these people you help, stay strong, hugs
I agree totally with Pauline , Lynnie ... please think of yourself sometimes ....and not always of the others...hugs
Well I hope Lyn takes our advise Ruth. hugs.
Hi ladies, guess what? It's another snow storm moving through again! Good grief.
Lyn, catch a break for yourself when you can especially in that heat.
Ingrid, how are you holding up with the storms down your way?
Pauline, have fun in that pool splashing around.
Ruth, I would love to send you some snow. The cities are trying to haul it away and are runing out of places to take it!
I've been having a few problems with white pages again today and opening messages. Don't know why because I thought that was all fixed a few days ago with the server issue C2 found. Also my Internet connection dropped out because of all our rotten weather so if I don't get in that's what is going on with me.
Have a good weekend everyone.
Yes it's snowing and I am watching all these beautiful fluffy bombs as they hit the ground! they are huge wet snowflakes. I am also listening to the spin of tires as people are stuck in the road to! Bless them I hope they make it safely where ever they need to go today. My daughter had a deer run into her car yesterday. She's fine but the car is a mess. Enjoy your day ladies. I will be back in a bit.
Hello ladies of Mad Hatter. Thanks Pam for the picture its making me cold. Well its not snowing yet. I am suppose to get between 7 to 12 inches today. I hardley fall in these boots but I did yesterday and it hurt but nothing is broke. Hope you are being careful and staying warm Pam. Hope you have fun with your friends Pauline and sorry about your mother in law Lyn. Hugs to all of you.
Hi Girls, No I didn't melt with the heat, BUT I haven't had the Internet for 5 days. Telstra came this morning & fixed it....thank goodness. But now I have about 200 or more e-mails to read. Its not so hot but I am having a day to myself...after I run around doing some things for my mother-in-law. She is not doing well at all & she is NOT HAPPY either. Guess what it is like. Sh it happens. So I will try to get back to being normal...hey I'm never normal. Everyone take good care of yourselves, have fun, be happy life is far TOO short not too. OK. Love you all. See you soon.
Thank god you are back again , we missed you a lot. It's not the same here without you....
Ingrid our snow is melting away again and the temperatures changes every day from - to +8° and yes Pami , good idea to send some snow over...lol then I can build a snowman or iglu with my granddaughter Leni...
Years ago a deer run into our car also.....we have many deers here.....good to hear that your daughter is OK...the car can be repaired again...
Pauline how are you???

Sorry I'm not on the group much right now but I promise when my friends leave I'll make up for lost time, Luv you all, Tommorrow we are climbing the Volcano! G H M ? ( God Help Me) lol
I can hardly move my ass today, I've never done so much eating, drinking and exercise. I hope I can last out till Thursday! thats when my friends leave to go home to Liverpool. Tomorrow we are going on a rum tasting trip! Ugh!
Me to Pauline! It's all worth it though right?
Glad you got your Internet back on Lyn.
Ingrid, are you ready for the warm up headed out way next weekend?
Ruth, your right of course cars can be repaired.
It has snowed just about every day since I was in last Ruth.
Sure wish I could send some for your grand daughter to play in to.
Today we relaxed on the beach, the weather was so beautiful and my friend Ruth said I don't believe I'm in the sea swimming in February! when everybody is freezing in England lol
Hi Pauline, so glad your friend is enjoying her swims in the sea.
Thank you Pami, went to the tropical forest with my friends here are a couple of pics.
Just got back from the airport after dropping my friends off for there trip back to England, Via, Martinique, Barbados and Paris, I never told them about the blockage by all the taxi drivers on strike in Paris because they have to cross by bus from Orly airport to Charles de Gaule airport and the stoppage of planes from Paris to England because of the terrible weather ! Never mind if they find a bar over there they will be happy! LOL also with the weather (RED ALLERT) in England I think it will take them 3 days to travel. SHUSH !
Looks like you guys have a fantastic time, the smiles on the faces gave it away. Just so pleased you all had fun & will always have happy memories of the weeks FUN. Hugs yes we did miss you JUST a little. LOL.
I agree Lynnie...all the people look so happy...thanks for sharing the pics with us Pauline...Oh my god Pami, snow every day - phew...our temps are so mild the tulips and other flowers already come out..
