Life in the Slow Lane: HELLO MONDAY (ON TUESDAY-AGAIN!!)

Tuesday 2 October 2012


This week I'm saying:

HELLO to being home in Spain, having left mum and dad installed in their new house. Dad's still not great, but much better than he was..I'm hoping that he will continue to improve now that the move is over.

HELLO to blue skies

HELLO to Kirsty recovering from the infection (with the help of a double dose of antibiotics!) she had in her mouth after the wisdom teeth extraction

HELLO to missing the first Line dancing class of the session...due to the still-broken-and- painful toe!

HELLO to having booked a place on the Blogger's Weekend being arranged by LIZZIE, for next March :)

HELLO to catching up with everyone's blogs

HELLO to a visit to the Hairdresser, which is now more than a week overdue

HELLO to  going to a charity concert on Friday night...followed by a few drinks in a local bar..should be a good night!

What are you saying hello to this week?

Thanks for dropping by!
take care of you

    I see that Margaret gave you a goddess. :o)

  8. Hope that toe feels better soon!!!! Glad you are back!

  10. Glad to hear that your parents are safely moved into their new house and that your Dad is recovering well. I'm saying hello to another round of Boot camp, oooo it's hard after a week without any exercise!

  11. It's good to hear that your parents are well settled.

    A tooth infection can be so painful. Eurgh, hope she feels better soon. We are also saying hello to antibiotics here this week - for chest infections

  12. Glad to hear your dad is improving and the move is all done. Hope your toe heels soon x

  13. Welcome home Alison. You have been missed but it was all in a very worthy cause and I am glad your parents are settled in and your dad improving. As for your poor toe, it needs a rest as you probably do too. Oh, those blue skies; been so grey here. Take care x

  15. I'm saying Hello to you. Welcome home, well done for supporting the parents and with a poorly toe!!

  16. Gosh you haven't had the easiest time of it lately my friend! I am saying hello to a new dress size having lost 8kgs in the last 2 months - woot!!

  17. I'm glad your parents are settled nicely and that you are home safe and sound.

  18. Congrats on moving forward, even with the challenge of the toe and daughter's illness. You have such a great attitude - of course the Spanish weather has to help.

  19. I'm slower than molasses the last two weeks--so I'm glad to see from this post that most things seem to be looking up for you. It's good news that your Dad is doing better. How awful that Kristy had complications after the surgery!

  20. Glad to hear your parent's are settled in the new place & you've made it home. It's been a busy week as I'm steadily working on the ladies' retreat I'm leading a week from today! Taking a few minutes to catch up with blog reading this morning.


Thanks for leaving a comment....I love reading them all!
