...but it was still wonderful to have a stroll along the promenade and enjoy an ice cream with the Grandchildren.
I did manage to have a stroll around a car boot with Victoria and the boys and although I didn't buy very much it was good fun. The thrill of the find, I often smile at the TV programme Antique Roadshow when something is worth a fortune that has been found at a car boot sale or charity shop. One mans rubbish is another mans treasure! Gerard is doing well and managed perfectly well whilst I was away. Neighbours popped in on him now and again and he went to friends for his Sunday lunches. The results of the heart monitor are back and as suspected there is an irregularity, he is awaiting a decision from his consultant in Glasgow, another change in medication or to have a pacemaker fitted. Time will tell.
I am a little tired from my trip and have a lot of errands to run over the next few days. However, I will catch up with you all soon and share some more of my trip away.
See you soon.
Glad your parents are doing well and that you got to spend some time with them. Hope they get your husband's heart straightened out that's worrisome.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you had a good trip and that your parents are doing well. I can see both of your parents in pictures of you. Your mother has a lovely smile.ReplyDelete
glad you are home and that you were able to help them out with their chores and such. Seeing the kids is a bonus!!ReplyDelete
I hope you're able to rest a little now you're back home. It's good to read your parents are OK and hopefully Gerard won't have to wait too long for a decision. XReplyDelete
Such a wonderful daughter you are...and wife and mom and grandma as well! I love the photo of your dearest parents and grand babies. Prayers for your hubby and hopes that you are able to snuggle in and get some much deserved cozy time. : )
Sounds like you had a lovely trip away, so wonderful to see the different generations playing together. Lovely to go away, but also so good to get home again xxReplyDelete
Glad all went well. Lovely to still have your mum and dad and you're a good daughter to be there for them. Lovely to see all the generations happy together. Wishing you and hubby both well, and things work out with his heart.ReplyDelete
How lovely to see your parents and the grand children but isn't it lovely to be home.. we have done nothing the last week or so, as we have workmen here laying a new path and patio, but they are so slow! But I mustn't complain, it is getting done so I can safely walk and not trip! Hope your husband responds well to the treatment and all will be fine.ReplyDelete
Welcome back home! It looks like you had a good time as well as help out with chores with your parents. They look happy to be with their great grands--how wonderful. Enjoy being back home. Wishing you easy days as you all decide what is best for Gerard. ♥ReplyDelete
I'm sure your parents were pleased to see you. Being able to spend time with them was a caring response to their need at this moment and one that we would all want to do in the same situation. It must have been a joy to be with the grandchildren. It's good to hear that Gerard was fine whilst you were away and I hope all goes well with treatment for his heart condition. Take care and rest up now.ReplyDelete
Welcome home! I’m sure Gerard was pleased and excited to see you return. I absolutely love the picture of your parents with the grandchildren. The happiness is evident.ReplyDelete
As you know, I have a pacemaker. If that ends up being the solution for Gerard I think you’ll both be very happy. It has certainly improved my life. I’m keeping him in my prayers daily and you too my friend. Many blessings always,
So glad you had a fun time away! It's always nice to catch-up with family. I leave to visit Mum on Friday and I can't wait. I am so thankful for all the time I get to spend with her (she'll be 82 this year!).ReplyDelete
I am glad that you had a good trip. Even working holidays can be satisfying and fun sometimes.ReplyDelete
Glad you had a good trip home. Nothing like seeing mom and dad, and those grandchildren are so cute. Hope the doctors get things straightened out with Gerard's heart. Bet he missed you while you were gone. Your flowers are very pretty (last post)!ReplyDelete
Welcome back. Good to hear your parents are doing okay and you were able to help out with the many things they need help with. Now you can hopefully enjoy the summer weather.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear you had a good trip to see your parents and saw grandchildren too! Not easy seeing them in need of help but glad you were there to help out a bit. Good to know life is good. God bless!ReplyDelete
Welcome home! I'm glad you got to spend some quality time with not only your elder generation, but the younger and even younger ones! Those are adorable children. I think you all take after your Mum. Rest up, my friend and take care of yourself. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
Welcome home! Everyone looks well and happy, which is great for you. 😊ReplyDelete
Good to be back home, I'm glad that your parents are well and that Gerard was okay whilst you were away. Lovely for you to be with your family for a while too:)ReplyDelete
Happy time with old ones and young ones ;)ReplyDelete
I agree the laughter and chatter of children is a wonderful sound. Music to my ears, LOL.ReplyDelete
I'm happy to hear that your trip was pleasant and that you made it home safe.
Have a sweet day and don't work to hard getting caught up on all that's needs doing from being away.
Although the trip was to help out, it looks like you had some great visits with all generations. Photos of children with their great-grandparents are wonderful treasures. Your mom has a sweet smile.ReplyDelete
Take your time getting caught up. I'm glad Gerard did well during your absence. Did he eat everything up that you prepared, or will you be able to take some meals from the freezer to give yourself a break?
Oh I agree - "chatter and laughter" are the most wonderful sounds ever!!! Medicine for the soul. What a lovely visit for you.ReplyDelete
I also love the picture of your parents and of your gorgeous grandchildren! And that "chatter and laughter" are one of the most wonderful sounds in the world. Take care and rest up!ReplyDelete
So glad to read that your parents are doing well. Sounds like Gerard was well looked after while you were away.ReplyDelete
Lovely to see you back home.
Welcome back, Lorraine, and glad to read about and see the photos from your visit home. Also glad that Gerard shared time with friends as well.ReplyDelete
