Thinking of you Clare, hoping you are pain free, resting and surrounded by your nearest and dearsest. Candles are buring for you in the DDW virtual 'chapel' over at gratefulness.org

Hope all Claredrops and Extras are doing well.

Re: I am in a really surreal place.........

Hello to Clare and all the droppers (although I feel some new name tags are emerging based on Twinky's adventures)
I hope everyone is happy and pain free this morning, The weather is rotten for June so we will all have to get our dose of sunshine from this thread instead. Rather than send you all virtual hugs please accept my gift of virtual big bright yellow sunbeams shining down on each and everyone one of you.
Love and sunshine,
Sian x

Wecome back Cackles - the new site isn't as user friendly as the old one was, but I never did like change!

Re: I am in a really surreal place.........

Well girls I have got back onto BCC at last. I now remember my old password. They tried countless times to give me a new one but it wouldn't work.....probably my fault, but even I can't be that stupid. I don't think the new site is good with iPads . Twinks you have been doing sterling work. I am SO pleased to see Clare is still at her kitchen window. As for the Poem...Clare at her best....Fantastic. I now feel part of the "gang" again!!!
Hugs to all

Re: I am in a really surreal place.........

Hoooo I am all excited, it is the first time that I manage to post from my Ipad. I can now come out of the woodwork and thank Twinky for the Kamikaze mission.
Clare, I hope you are painfree and calm, we could all do with some better weather. I hate bank holidays because the weather is always cr@p.
On saturday I walked from Shiplake to Tilehurst and today from Tilehurst to Goring. Got a bit wet today but nothing major.
Hopeing all the Claredrops are painfree. Xxx

Re: I am in a really surreal place.........

Not having too great a time with zonked out head on oxycodone, and then rads for bone pain which has knocked the stuffing out me, plus the disrupted website, it's been a while since I logged on. It was with some trepidation I did so - and how glad I was to read that The ClareDrop herself is still giving life its best shot - the new site took me to her initial post and I re read it with a lump in my throat - good on you girl - give this C thing the kicking it deserves!

Re: I am in a really surreal place.........

Thank you Twinky, what a brilliant description of Operation Flower Power... in my mind's eye I see you totally hidden behind a rose tree while Mr Twinky negotiated the bends of the roads in rural Oxfordshire. So glad that you were able to spend a little time with Clare, that's lovely. Thank you Laura for your pivotal role in this grand plan too.

Clare, I hope the sun is shining where you are (we've borrowed it for Glasgow today) and that you are able to enjoy the gentle warmth of the breeze whilst enjoying your new rose tree.

Hope all Drops and Extras are well.

Re: I am in a really surreal place.........

Twinky, thank you so much for making Clare's day brighter. I was pleased to hear you and Mr Twinky had a cuppa and a chat with Clare.

The rose sounds lovely and will be a delight for Clare, we just need some sun now for Clare to be able to take full benefit of her garden, it's plants and wildlife.

Thanks too to Laura for suggesting Clare's surprise.

Hugs to all

Re: I am in a really surreal place.........

Evening Ladies
Fortified by a hot chilli to beat this awful weather I now have the energy to recount today's events in full! Spent the morning...and part of the afternoon gathering names & messages & making a card for Clare so that she knew who all the gifts were coming from then went to a nice nursery near Farnborough to select a tree & pot. Had a slight heart attack when the lady on the counter said they shut in 15 minutes.....so hubby & I raced to the tress & shrubs section. I wanted something currently in bloom for Clare to enjoy & managed to find a beautiful standard rose tree (the rose breed was called Flower Power...very appropriate). The roses are a pale pink colour and the leaves a dark green. The tree had several blooms on it but lots & lots of buds so it'll be blooming for some time! It was in a lovely big light blue pot so given the imminent closing time chose to leave it in that one. I then had to sit in the back of the car steadying the aforementioned tree whilst hubby drove me to Clare's house. With this awful weather the tree dripped steadily on me for the journey but it gave me a chance to remove price tags etc.
Arriving at Clare's I took a quick picture of the tree once we'd safely extracted it (& me) from the car. If you'd like a copy of the photo then pm me your e mail address. Got hubby to carry it up the garden path & I spotted Clare in her window seat in the kitchen! She was very surprised & thrilled with her tree (first time she'd had one) and loved the pot too as it matched her others. Tom made us a drink & we had tea & chocolates & a long natter. Clare finally got to meet Mr Twinky! It was so lovely to see her. She'd had a visitor free day so my timing couldn't have been better & was feeling comfortable with her current pain meds working. She was in good spirits & is still enjoying the flowers from Friday & chocolates! She will read the card later. She is hoping to post when she can but confessed she was having password trouble.
So there you go...everything now delivered from you all. Tomorrow will be a quiet day in this household.
