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,
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
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
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!
Well done soppy lump!
Clare glad you liked the rose and pleased you were up to spending a little time with Twinky and Mr Wabbit! Hope you have a peaceful weekend.
Lots of love as always to you Clare and to the other lovelies on this wonderful thread xx
Well overwhelmed yet again,........................so thoughtful and kind, I know its very thing that keeps me going sometimes..
Twinky, once again it was lovely to see you, although your sneaking ddidn't work LOL and I met Mr Wabbit.,Love to you my dear..Clare xx
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.
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.
Listen very carefully I shall say this only once ..............or twice, three times, four times - no amount of times are enough to thank you comrade Twinky for all your good work, you have been an absolute gem. Thank you so much. x
Love and hugs to Clare, Claredrops and extras. xxxx
