lazy June days

Good Morning Friends, Sorry for delay in writing howev June has been a very quiet month.I hope that you like the new lay out. I was not happy with the Edinburgh picture that I had as my topper so thought that the June rose was much better....... On the 31st. May my friend Pam and of course Mary and I went to a wonderful craft fair. It was held in a beautiful old mansion house in a village which is actually quite near where I live but one that I had never heard of let alone visited...What a delight it was. When we drove in I found parking right in front of the house..good point...get out of car chair and entrance..oh oh..fear not a very nice young lass by the door, said no trouble, I will get someone to bring a ramp, and within a few mins a ramp was produced and it was with that welcome we entered and what a great craft show it was..very small..but such delightful things. Mary spent some money buying a few pieces of jewlery and I bought a magnificent Cockerel/hen that is a door stop actually and that will be a Christmas present for a friend who loves I is a bit of a sacrifice to give it away !! We had a lovely cuppa and home made cake before starting back home. As it is an old mansion house there were steps in other areas and without us even asking a ramp magically appeared.. Such kindness without any fuss was greatly apprecated.. if you type in Cleeve House I think you may be able to view the house. ...
Otherwise the month as I say has been very quiet. Since we came home from Edinburgh by dear BIL John has been quite poorly. He has developed Jaundice that the hospital think is a form of Hepatitis ut as yet after about 6 different sets of blood tests nothing positve has turned up. It has bee a great worry as John is never ill and we all have come to depend on him so much. we just pray that the jaundice will go down soon and that he will be back to his usual bouncy self..
It is Mary's birthday this coming Tuesday so I expect we will go out for a meal a chinese I expect. We were in Bath yesterday and I got her a new purse that she admired, whilst we were looking at the purses I picked on up and opened it and found it full of notes ....yes about £35 I think...I said to the assistant about it and she was at first quite puzzled, then remembered someone had brought a purse back saying could she exchange it for a bigger one..and had...she thinks it must have been the lady so I hope she discovered her loss !!!
we have been blessed with the most wonderful weather this last week or so. I am just listning to the weather forecast and she tells me that today will be the hottest day of the year with temps up to 30+deg think that is around mid 80f which for us is hot !! I will have the fan on all day for sure. how blessed we all are. This afternoon I think there will be lots of BBQs burning and lots of parties and TV watching as England play Germany in South Africa... I am not much of a football fan but even I, I expect. will have the TV on in the background and will be shouting for England...but secretly wishing it could have been Scotland !!!
Remember during these lovely summer days to LOVE ONE ANOTHER


  1. That rose is beautiful. What a nice header it makes. The days of June will soon be over and it seems as though it just began. It's good to hear that you've been enjoying the good weather. It is hot here in the 80's but for the most part lovely days. I've made lots of use of my fan and now and then the air conditioning too. I'll keep your BIL in my prayers. I do hope they discover what is wrong so they can do something about it.

  2. Love craft fairs and hope your BIL is better soon. Jaundice can come with liver issues. Have the doctor's researched into this? Hepatitis can cause it too. And I think kidney issues. I'm not a doc, lol, but I remember that being a symptom of those illnesses. Hope you all have a wonderful evening. I need to get out my map and see where Bath is. I've heard of it, but have forgotten my geography map in my mind.

  3. I love that rose header Sybil! We have been away to Wolverhampton and called in at David Austen's rose gardens. What a magnifiscent show of beautiful scented roses from shrubs, standards and climbers. When you get out the car all you can smell is the heavenly scent and see fields of roses.
    June is the best of times for roses for sure.
    Sorry to hear that John isn't too brilliant. I hope he gets to the bottom of what is causing the jaundice.
    I had something similar a good few months ago now and I got over it by mysef. According to scans I have a fatty liver and pancreas. Since I don't drink it can only be medication. Could it be so with him?
    Tell him I was asking after him and to get well soon.
    Happy birthday to Mary. Hope she has a great day to remember.
    Much love to you all.
