Happy Birthday Janet

πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠHappy Birthday JanetπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Good Morning Ladies,

A very Special day today ladies, it's Our Lovely Janet's Birthday, there's a huge chocolate cake in the chiller, some fresh baked scones, one of Margaret's Coconut & Lemon cakes, everything has been done this morning Janet so please just sit in the special chair  that is adorned with balloons and streamers, put your feet up and enjoy your day, I wish but was close enough to give you an actual 'Birthday Hug' , I'm sending lots of virtual ones to compensate!  
I'm not sure that you have planned today but whatever it is have a wonderful day my Dear, Sweet Friend xxxx

I love the card that you have made too Janet, I'm guessing it was for a special occasion as it is so beautiful, every thing about is just gorgeous, from the sentiment to the beautiful floral spray with pretty stick pins and ribbon.  Thank you for allowing me to share it with everyone. Xxx

Pat I hope all goes well with Pete's hospital visit today, I'm sure it is going to be a long and tiring day, you will be in our thoughts my lovely. Xxx

Sue is coming over today, I have a list of cards to make, so will be cracking the whip today, haha, I'm looking forward to a catch up xxx

I hope that all of you have a lovely day today too,

Love and hugs



  1. Hi Sandra and all,

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANET hope you have a wonderful day with lots of treats.
    Beautiful card you've made. Really pretty, love the verse and such a nice sentiment.

    Sandra hope you had a good rest yesterday and feel a lot better today. Enjoy your crafting with Sue.

    Pat do hope everything goes ok today with Pete's hospital visit. Hope its not too long a day.

    Out early today as off to the hospital to hopefully after a six month wait, pick up my medical card. I don't hold out much hope of getting it as there's always another excuse why it's not arrived from Madrid. But you never know.

    Will call in later.

    Have a good day everyone.
    Love Valxxx

  2. Morning Ladies

    Happy Birthday Janet-hope you have a fabulous day. You're card is beautiful.

    Quick visit as I have to be out early-am interviewing all day today (& tomorrow) at our other hospital site. 11 to interview today and 10 tomorrow-it's not something I enjoy but I have to do it as part of my job.
    Think I'll be shattered by this evening!

    After all the rain the last couple of days have brought, today is bathed in bright sunshine with a very clear blue sky. I might, just might mind, be able to get in a couple of hours light gardening.

  14. Hi everyone.
    Hope you're all having a good day.
    Well I'm happy to say that finally my Health card has arrived.You get one here when you reach pensionable age and that's it for life unless as in my case some silly so and so presses the wrong button and puts a block on it. You need the card to collect your prescriptions, book the doctor or visit the hospital etc so an important bit of card.
    Had to go and get some cat and dog biscuits from the vets, some low fat mince from the butcher and a restaurant gift voucher for a friends birthday and WOW the days gone. Just having a coffee and it's out with Gracie for a walk. I was hoping to haveca couple of hours in my craft room but don't think its going to happen.

    Pat I hope everything went well today.
    Lynda I'm glad the exercises are going well.
    Maria hope you saw a sofa you liked and that the physio went well.
    Michele thats a lot of interviews in one day. Hope they went well.

    Well coffees finished so must move.
    See you tomorrow.
    Love Valxxx

  15. Hi everyone.
    Janet hope you have a fun day at K & N and perhaps Jim cooking the dinner for you tonight :)
    Physio went ok but are very sore, he gave me some exercises to do at home and I'll see him in a month time again to see if any improvements.
    Karen, your fault I had to look for a slimming type of pancake recipe. Found one with only 2 ingredients (eggs and bananas) and I'm going to defrost some frozen berries to have to it. They are being our pudding after salmon and vegs. dinner we have tonight. Right now do I am sitting here with a big slice of Chocolate Cake and surely enjoying myself, well you can always pretend Lol
    Many hugs xx

  16. Hi Sandra & Ladies

  17. Hi Sandra
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANET. I hope you had a lovely day and that this year you got your card.
    Had pancakes for tea after some Jacket Potatoes. Not great news I'm afraid re Pete. Cancer is spreading further into his bones. We've been given some leaflets to read re Chemo which might not work. Also need to see a Professor Metcalfe whose trying to trial some new drugs. This might not work either. However, because he has another Cancer he might not be able to go on a trial. We need to see them ASAP then go back in three weeks to see what Pete decides to do. Tough times ahead I'm afraid.

    1. So very sorry to hear your news Pat.
      My thoughts and prayers are with you both. Love and hugs Valxxx

    2. Sorry to hear the news thinking of you both, hugs on way Margaret xx

    3. Oh Pat, so sorry to read this news. Stay strong, you know we are all here for you. Sending you both caring hugs, xx
