Thankyou, lovely girls - embarassed - hubby bought me a huge bunch of red tulips today. Since living in Holland, tulips are something I look forward to and at the same time reminisce about our wonderful time spent there.

A couple of years ago, I had to have my wedding ring cut off - arthritis had made my knuckle too big to take it off! Today we went into the jewellers to have it reworked so that I can wear it again.

Two little things, but with a message.

heart  big_hug to you all.

Ahh, what a lovely tale, especially about your wedding ring.  I adore Tulips too, especially when they are dying.  Any special meal plans?

I'll try that again!

Hmm, vaguely remember that question going around before, but it may have been tied into a larger thread....?

You may want to glance back "On the Sun Lounger" and see, or search it. 

Or start a new one. Why not?

Happy Birthday, Val.  I love tulips, too.  Bought some today for next-door neighbour who returns home  tomorrow from longish stay in hospital - I was tempted to keep them as they were so cheerful (yellow and red stripeys), but I did the honourable thing ...  What happened to the Birthday List suggestion?  I seem to have lost the thread on that one (please excuse the pun!).

Gone crazy. Back soon.
