Today the twins went to a private swimming pool for the first time.  My niece and her husband hired the pool for an hour so they would have it to themselves.   The girls loved it and one particular photo is beautiful.   However, am I allowed to post it as 'Mum's' face is also in the picture and don't want to break any rules?  If I knew how to shade out her face I would do so but a skill beyond me.

Roobarb, I hope you are continuing to improve.

Yes, a nice little trip, keeping as safe as we can  ;D

Viktorria, I hope your Son gets on well with appointment and they are able to help him.

Louisa, held up by a barrier, well at least it was not snow, leaves or hot rails. Did you try on Ma'am's Crown?  :)

Annette, we've had Contractors all around here laying underground tubing for Virgin fibre optic. Then the Salesman following up trying to sell it.

Take care, Mark

Figured out how to block my nieces face out of the photo (sorry J) so that you can see how much the girls enjoyed their first time in a big pool.

Gosh, those two tiny little babies, how they have come on.
Very encouraging and I must show them to my grand daughter in law,Flash Harry’sMummy,she expects her second baby2nd Nov.
A big worry re placenta praevia (I think that is the spelling) so baby may be induced sooner.
Depends on what the scans show.
There is one prem baby in the wider family already and she was so tiny and f
fragile but the first in her immediate family so mum had lots of time etc.
A bonny little girl now all glorious blond curls.

Well folks according to Alan Titchmarsh ,time to prune back to one foot Wisteria shoots .
There was some more info but I was in the bathroom and the running water blocked out the little radio.
Off to shop in a little while ,some greens, bread, fruit TVmag.
And anything that takes my fancy!

Not actually raining but heavy threatening clouds and quite cool.
I put another blanket on my bed last night ,a lightweight one but it was a bit cool around two O’Clock.

Well must go to pay the half yearly Ground Rent to the gentleman at the other end of the street ,it is the princely sum of Ł2-25 each half year and the tenure is 999 years.
Most of if not all of the old housing stock in Ramsbottom has the same long terms and low rentals.

Hope everyone is well, and look forward to your news,
Viktoria.

Mare, good to read your news about family get togethers and outings. Interesting to hear that face masks are mandatory on public transport in NZ,  particularly considering your low infection rate. And yet here in England it's been left to local authorities to decide.  ::)

Lovely photo Annette, glad to hear you've been able to get in and out of your car park. Good to hear everyone's news.
Thanks Mark, I'm slowly improving, have managed to do some things around the house, taking rests along the way.

My what a busy week everyone has had! Hard to catch up and comment on everything though…

Annette your two little girlies look such happy souls and must be a real pleasure to you all…. Lovely picture..

Roobarb - good to hear that you’re making a come back and on the road to recovery… hope each day just gets better for you.

Viktoria- what ever you write always brings a smile to my face and you have such a wealth of interesting tales… keep them coming it does us all good! Do hope they get to the bottom of your sons issues..

Mare - what a busy enjoyable week you and your family have had…. Good to hear that despite your low numbers it’s mandatory for people to wear face coverings… wish our lot were more decisive!

LM - not been to see that ceremony before but certainly like too… reassuring to hear that London isn’t over crowded as I do want to see the David Hockney exhibition at the RA … and I’ve had some reservations..

Hope trips away for Diana and those taken by Bushinn are/were successful.

Just to report that after 7 wks think my OH may have turned the corner… finally and has improved… first day back to playing golf so hopes he’s sensible and doesn’t overdo it! Looking forward to making up for lost time with seeing friends and family..

My week hasn’t been earth shattering catching up with gardening  in between the downpours… spent too long turning the compost bins and now have a sore shoulder so not been able to do yogalates very well either…

Take care everyone and hope you all keep well and don’t circum to  pingdemic!
