  1. Yayyy!!! I’m FIRST to COMMENT!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I got enough medication to last through another episode of the dreaded lurgy and I feel much better apart from coughing up all kinds of crud! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs to you too my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Yes you are! And that makes me very happy!
      I’m glad you got your meds.
      How have you been coming along with that bug anyway? Are you still getting better? It sure is hanging on to you a long time.

      Love and big squishy hugs, my friend!…always!
      xx

  2. Yeah I’m feeling MUCH better, but still a bit weak and coughing a lot, but it’s a case of bringing up everything in my lungs, not because they itch! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The fever ended yesterday (10 days totall sick time) and I feel like I should get the shopping done OK tomorrow.

    The weather is a bit unpredictable so I want to avoid getting wet, but tomorrow is another day…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I think you were sick a bit longer than that. I had learned that you got sick right before I left to come to the Island and I will be here 2 weeks this Thursday. I’m just glad it finally coming out of you…Good deal and praise God!
      The weather is back and forth with the sun, rain and wind all the time…warm one day, the cool the next.

      Love and big hugs,
      xx

  3. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have the misfortune of having almost no support on my side of the planet, so your words and thoughts are very dear to me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    IF this goes through – and it’s early days yet as I’ve had to do a lot of editing – then it might sell or it might not, but either way I’LL HAVE TRIED and if it is even a minor success I’ll be able to rub dad’s nose in it and PROVE HIM A LIAR so no doubt he will go to great lengths to try and kill me again! ๐Ÿ™‚

    He really is a sick, sad, individiual who is little more than a walking bundle of hate…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • You’re always welcome. You’re my friend and I love ya silly! You know, you are a better friend to me than of those who claim to be around this part of the world too…you’re not along in that.
      Whatever you decide to do…I’m stand behind you, Prenin.
      Maybe you should stay away from your dad…he sounds really bad for the body, mind and Spirit.
      Love and squishy hugs, xx

      • Believe me, when I think of my dad the world ‘Evil’ springs to mind!

        I avoid him like the plague, but he still pops up from time to time to disturb my days.

        The day he dies the world will be a far better place…

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

  4. Both I’m afraid – his home is on my route into Middleton centre so I occasionally see him, he has the same doctors surgery as me, so I run into him from time to time and there’s a lot of unpaid debts between him and me, only the law protecting him from retribution, so I still have nightmares about him.

    Truly he is an evil SOB who deserves a bullet, but the law protects him just as it failed to protect us his children in our time of need…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • That’s a shame you have to run into him…I feel for ya, Prenin! No wonder you can’t get him out of your head.
      The law sucks! Please excuse my abrasive language, but I feel that it is true!
      Love and hugs, xx

  5. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah we had snow over here, but it fell as rain when it got this far south! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Winter is hanging on methinks…

    I’m feeling a lot better, but I still have a cough that brings up yuck occasionally and I run out of energy pretty easily.

    The first edit is almost done, then I’ll post it to Google Docs so Red can get a look at it and fine tune it – she says what needs to be done and I do it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We had trouble with Google docs at first, but I found a way round the problem! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the best wishes hun – you’re the best!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Snow! Aak! Glad it turned to water.
      Winter won’t let go here either. It’s either that, or it’s just starting since we didn’t really have a real one during the named season…lol
      I’m glad you feel better. Soon you will be all better. But you stay out of the bad weather….including Sunday.
      You are the best too, Prenin…You always have been!!
      Love and Hugs, xx

    Nicki / Night Lady

    • Aw, Prenin! You are the bestest friend. I love you so much! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Have a wonderful day today and on Easter Sunday, sugah!
      Much love always, and squishy hugs, xxx ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s dead quiet, 24’C in my bedroom and I’m drinking tropical fruit juice! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Summer Here We Come!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  8. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment – always a pleasure! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The secret is to care for everyone whose lives you touch.

    You are a lovely person Deb and care as much as I do! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The book is now in Red’s hands for editing so I’ll follow her directions from here now on.

    As soon as I know what I’m doing I’ll get a signed copy to you – sounds kind of funny talking about something that has been fourteen years in the making! ๐Ÿ™‚

    When I started writing it was for fun – I never thought somebody would like my work enough to consider it worth publishing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • You’re a very kind person, Prenin. I wish I’d known you for years…feels like I have really. But it doesn’t matter…We know each other now.
      If Red thinks it’s good, then I’m sure it is…she is an excellent writer as, you know this already. I’m sure she will do all that is required and get you going with it. I look forward to a copy of it. Let me know when you’re ready to send me a signed copy and we will get the info you need.
      Love and Hugs, xx

  9. Happy Easter Deb ๐Ÿ™‚ Hey I hope that you
    don’t get any sand on your Easter Eggs ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Androgoth XXx

  10. Thanks for the best wishes Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I must not only prepare for success, but also for failure – either way I’ll be happy because I at least tried…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  11. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah having the intercom is a pain because Chris keeps his turned off so James Tries to throw things at his windows – he’s a rotten shot – and then buzzes me to let him in.

    Trouble is that James isn’t his real name and Chris has had his door kicked in three times by the Police…

    Love and hugs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • You’re welcome, Prenin…It’s my pleasure to visit you silly!

      That guy sounds like a real looser, Prenin. I really hope you can win the lottery one day and get a better place to live. Better yet, your book might manage all that for you….lets hope!

      Love and Hugs, xx

    • Thank you, Andro! I imagine you have already started yours out there. You have a most wonderful evening tonight. And remember…don’t bite too hard.
      Hugs, XXx

      • Yes I am leaving for the morning, I was just faffing around on my Space before I go for a nice coffee ๐Ÿ™‚

        Have a lovely time at the beach Deb ๐Ÿ™‚

        Androgoth XXx

        • Well you enjoy yourself a nice hot cup and I will remember you in the morning when I have mine!
          Have a good one, Andro!
          Hugs XXx

  12. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah – especially milk! ๐Ÿ™‚

    If it lasted longer I’d buy more of it!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yep: The intercom is a pain! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Yesterday I was awakened by the repairman coming to fix the self closing device on it.

    The kids don’t trouble us often these days, but the little sods still try…

    I got my new keyboard today and discovered my eyesight is now so poor I need my reading glasses to use the PC…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • – Lol
      – No, if it lasted longer you wouldn’t have to buy it but a time or two, maybe only once.
      – Intercom does have it’s pros and cons
      -That would be one of the cons…lol
      -That is one of the pros…till the start hitting that buzzer
      -Back to the eye doctor you.

      Love and Squishy Hugs โ™ฅ xx

  13. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, it makes the next couple of tickets cheaper! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can you imagine me winning the Big One?!!! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • It a couple you don’t have to pay out of pocket anyway.
      I can only imagine. I first imagine you in a better place. Somewhere not too far from me so I can visit you. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Loveโ™ฅHugs, xx

      • Hey I hope that the beach is a lot warmer now ๐Ÿ™‚ It has been raining here in the UK ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But still nice to listen to and of course it is good for the wildlife and the gardens ๐Ÿ™‚

        Androgoth XXx

        • Well, it’s like this, Andro. We haven’t been to the beach yet since we have been here. Firstly because it has been rather cold to. Secondly we have to now pay $120.00 or 91.26 Euro per year to drive on the beach, which is the only way we ever do the beach since Mitch has lots of fishing gear….but we’ll get there soon…maybe next month’s payday.
          You’ve had rain? We had a bunch last week. I do hope your clear up soon. Too much of that can be relentless even for a vampire, but is good for nature.
          Thank you so much for taking a little time today to visit…the pleasure was all mine!
          Hugs, XXx

          • $120 just to drive onto the beach sounds a lot to me, mind you it costs me ยฃ1.45 for every litre of petrol so it soon becomes a wallet empty exercise, but we need our cars don’t we Deb? ๐Ÿ™‚ Especially around here as there are a lot of hills…

            Have a fun day and I hope that you will be back on that beach sooner rather than later my great friend ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for my gifts too they are all very nice ๐Ÿ™‚

            Androgoth XXx

            • Yes, I know. This is going to kill the island. We are starting to loose interest in it ourselves. Everywhere you look these days there is a new fee for something, ay.
              Yes, we do need our cars. Is is hilly where you live?…sounds lovey, Andro.
              We’ll get to the beach. I’ll be sure to savor every moment while I’m here too.:-)
              Thanks you, my friend.
              Hugsโ™ฅXxx

  14. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know what you mean about the domestic stuff – I’ve changed my bedding again and washed the old set – but I can’t use the vacuum cleaner until Chris wakes so I don’t disturb him! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The new keyboard is a little clunky after my previous version, but usable! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My eyes are getting a bit strange as I get older, but I have reading glasses which do pretty well! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you have a great weekend my love! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Huge hugs always! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Hi Prenin
      You’re eyes are just getting old like mine…we’re the same age. The trouble is they get worse at a more rapid rate, huh.
      I got my bedding washed today too. Tomorrow I will get the dog bathed. That will be fun…not really though.
      We have a house guest for Sunday so I need to go out and get some sheets to fit the bed that hides inside the couch. What’s that called?….a hidabed?

      So the keys are bulkier than you last keyboard. You’ve get use to it in time. Hopefully soon.

      You have yourself a great weekend, my love, and don’t let yourself fall ill again either.
      โ™ฅLoveโ™ฅHugsโ™ฅxx

    • Thank you, Mogen. Very nice of you to take the time to tell me all this. You can buy prints of of my artwork by looking in the side part. You will see links for them.
      I use to sell the originals but I’m not always with my art to do so these days.
      Thank you for coming in.
      xo

  15. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, it’s all practice for the big one – the sooner the better!!! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Still ยฃ6.10 will pay for my next tickets with a little over for goodies!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

    The second book is coming along – every time I think I’ve run out of ideas a bit more gets woven into the story!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs my lovely friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Win! Win! Win!
      I can’t wait for my first signed copy of the first one, and am already looking forward to your second great work! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Loveโ™ฅ and Hugs, xx

  16. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I still have a pillow slip and a T shirt left to wash, but I’ll do those when I have a bit more to do – less wasteful! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry Cassie has to have teeth pulled – not fun with a dog! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I have to set aside items till next wash day too at times.

      Cassie…that’s quite alright. Just good she is getting the care she needs now.

      Love and Hugs, xx

  17. Hi Debbie love! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I went to bed at 4pm and they don’t knock off work until 5pm… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Yes, I’m now below 106Kg, my bigger size of boxers no longer fit and I’m feeling better for it as I’m not in as much pain! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Will do! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Keeping warm is a priority because of the damned medication which slows my metabolism…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  18. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, the cost of a stamp is going up markedly at the end of the month, so I may not be able to afford to write to my pen friends any more…

    The booze is being raised in price to cut down on binge drinking so as to reduce alcohol fuelled trouble in town centres of an evening.

    They are literally punishing the majority for a minority…

    Love and hugs to you too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • My pleasure, Prenin! ๐Ÿ™‚
      The stamps went up here too the first of Jan…does every year, I think.
      Sounds like bum control. The trouble is everyone has to suffer for it.
      Love and hugs to you too! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  19. That is too adorable, Deb. The little birdhouse, the flowers, the hearts…Never saw it before today. Wanted to tell you to enjoy the weekend. We’ve had a cluster of rainy days over here. Hope your weather is bright and breezy. Bye for now ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh: naturally, i’m sending hugs for Cici and Cassie.

    • Found that image on photobucket…I thought is was adorable too. ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ve had rain off and on quite a bit lately, and expecting more too.
      Thank you for the lovely visit, Kathryn! It’s always nice to talk with you. Love and hugs to you and the pack from Cici, Cassie and I. xx

  20. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, prices keep rising, but the latest rises are big ones and done by the Government to stop binge drinking by making booze too expensive to afford by the masses!

    They are also stopping cigarette sales by making the shop keepers store their wares behind sliding doors and they are going to make it law that cigarettes are only sold in plain packaging to stop the kids buying them – like that is going to stop them as they need the tobacco for their cannabis cigarettes! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Needless to say the tobacco firms are kicking up a stink, but given the death toll I for one am glad of it, although it just means that the tobacco smugglers will get more trade…

    Thanks for the kind words hun – if Red says I can do it then great! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m already about half through the second book, though I have doubts about it… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • The government just wants more money. I think all governments read the same rule book of bull.

      No…if I say you can do it, then you can do it! So there! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Wow, that’s was fast!

      Love and Hugs, xx

  21. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comments! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah we are having hail storms and torrential downpours, then the sky brightens and you feel you can relax! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m with you on inspiration! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just did another chapter and I wasn’t even trying! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

    • It’s my pleasure and much as your when I visit…no thanks needed.

      We’re the same with the rain thing…just awful.

      Yes, it comes and goes as it pleases. So we have to take advantage when it shows up.

      Another chapter!?…way to go, Prenin!

      Love and squishy hugs to you to, my friend! xx

  22. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’ve now got bright sunshine here and the streets are drying up – you wouldn’t know it rained buckets an hour ago! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and dry hugs!

    Prenin.

  23. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just as well I didn’t go to church – everything was fine until 10.30am and suddenly the heavens opened, delivering a mix of very heavy rain and hail!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m still feeling a bit off, but everything else is back to normal – it was probably the pears, I didn’t wash them before I ate them…

    Just finished three more chapters of the second book and it looks VERY good! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The protagonist, John Thorn, is being seduced a little at a time by a rich bad guy who has total power at his command, but has nobody he can trust, so he is seducing John so he has a friend who will never stab him in the back and a loyal servant who will do his nefarious bidding… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great fun to write, but I’m reluctant to reach the end.

    Still: We’ll see… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Yeah, the sky here is certainly promising more heavy rain today too.

      I guess you’ll remember to wash the fruit off next time after that.

      You’re moving along on that book very quickly. Sound good too. You’ll finish it…I’m sure of it!

      Love and Hugs, xx

      • Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yeah I’ll remember to sterilise everything in future! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        So far the book is 43,422 words long and growing strong! ๐Ÿ™‚

        If I do a good job of it I’ll add a third book, but I have no idea what it’ll be about yet… ๐Ÿ™‚

        Love and hugs my sweet friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Prenin.

        • Yes, of course…lol. You know I was kidding. Bacteria is everywhere…we can’t escape it. ๐Ÿ™‚
          Wow! That’s a lot done already!!
          A third both on the agenda…you’re going strong, Prenin!
          Love and great big massive hugs! xx

  24. Thanks for the visit and comment Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, the writing is entertaining and so far the second book looks pretty good! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I dream of finishing them and visiting dad to give him my books and say: “If you hadn’t destroyed my typewriter and forced me to burn my first manuscript we’d have been a very rich family.” and watch him explode – he CANNOT EVER accept he is in the wrong about anything and if you bring out his past acts, terrible though they were, his first response is to blame and threaten to kill his victim!

    Oh how I dream of the day he dies… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I love to visit…no thanks needed, my friend!

      You’ll get them finished, but I still don’t think you need to even bother to tell your dad…you’re just fueling the fire, and you don’t need that. Besides, he find out through the grapevine soon enough.
      Haha…he’s not worth the rent space in your head….evict him…lol

      Love and Hugs, xx

  25. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, you are right of course, live now die another day! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Live – this is not a rehearsal!!! LoL!!!

    Love and squishy hugs my sweet friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • That is beautifully put, Prenin! I like that.
      I bet you could work something as that in a book one day.
      Love and great big squish hugs! xx

  26. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your second comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I had no idea where this part of the story would lead, then it kind of wrote itself! ๐Ÿ™‚

    John Thorn is a lot like me, but a lot more dangerous! LoL!!!

    Right now Red has her hands full, so when she gets time to look at it we’ll see it go a bit further.

    Right now she has eight manuscripts to work on so I have to queue! LoL!!!

    Once she;s satisfied Red will do the rest and we’ll see what comes next, but it is one loooong road before we see it in print – if ever! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Unfortunately nothing is given…

    Also she’s waiting on my second and third books because a trilogy sells a lot better than just the one book! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • It came from you head…lol. Sorry, I could resist that. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Ah, a dangerous you…I can hardly wait to read all this one day.
      Red’s great, huh! and wow, what a busy woman she is!

      I’ll wait as long as it takes, Prenin.
      I never knew that trilogy sold better. She would know though.

      Love and Hugs, xx

  27. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, the keyboard is taking a pounding, but I’m getting used to the spacing of the letters so I’m getting back to touch typing, but I’m still making the occasional mistake as I’m still not used to it yet…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  28. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your second comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, you is one smart cookie!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    These fraudsters are clever, but can be easily spotted. I guess we’re both old hands at this game!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The head’s better, but my butt is sore from sitting in this darned chair! LoL!!!

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Yes, I’ve even had banks (fakes of course) try to get me to answer vital question…No way will I open that one. Among others of course.
      Love and Hugs, xx

  29. Hi Debbykins! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your third comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have two loose threads to tie up and then it’ll be done.

    First I have to destroy the bad guy’s position as chairman of a multi-planet corporation (NOT easy, but I’m getting there!), send him to Ross 359 where he meets his demise at the hands of the hero, then finish the story off with a tidy yellow bow! LoL!!!

    It’s quite a task, so I’m thinking furiously about options! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It feels good to have the old brain chugging again! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  30. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I keep forgetting you’re a mum! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, I like shepherds pie, but I LOVE a good curry!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

    We had lots of sunshine today, but it means we can expect a cold night! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The second book is finished (provisionally) so it all depends on if I’ve written enough!

    The word total is 63,909, but Songs of Angels runs to 101,213 so there’s a bit of a difference! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the best wishes hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  31. Yes, a mom/mum now for 34 years…lol They grow so fast.

    I remember you telling me how much you love curry.
    I’m sure what you write will be enough. Is there a minimum word count you have to at least have?

    Best wishes to you always, my friend!
    Love ya, Hugs xx

    • Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m not sure on the word count, Songs of Angels runs to 101,203 words, but Red has suggested a few things so hopefully I’ll be able to extend Black Judge a bit further! ๐Ÿ™‚

      This writing gig is all new to me! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Love and hugs!

      Prenin.

      • Sounds good. I’m really glad Red is helping you…can’t think of anyone better than her.
        Black Judge…is that the name of the book?

        New to you…not anymore. You’re an old hand at it now! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Love and squishy hugs! xx

  32. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Red is under the weather – hospital was mentioned I think – so I’m happy to wait until she’s better!

    I managed to extend the story a little, so I’m going to add to the tale and make more of the story.

    The weather here is very good, but the local Motorway is closed due to three Big RIgs getting blown over during the past weekend’s storms so getting back from collecting my meds was a nightmare!!!

    I now have enough to last until l collect the next batch, but the pharmacy screws up so often I can’t help but worry!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    The Black Judges are the Texas Rangers of space – break the law and they come get you, no matter how powerful you are!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I certainly hope she is alright!!!

      You’re doing great and putting this story together from what I can tell of your daily posts. You keep it up, Prenin…you’re doing great!

      Hmm. I wonder if it will be chilly here tonight as well. We’re having a most beautiful day right now.

      Thanks for telling me what the Black Judges are.

      Love and Hugs, xx

      • Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

        A sure sign that the story is good is that I enjoy reading it! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yeah I’m feeling the cold so I turned the heating back on.

        It’s 10.06pm here and I’m normally in bed by 10pm! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Glad to explain – if I EVER get this book written and published (nothing is given) I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

        • Well I for one can hardly wait to get a copy of your book. I still hope you send me a signed copy one day.

          Wow, you are up late. I’m not even sure you’ll see this message till tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚

          Thanks Prenin!

          Love and Hugs, and sleep with God’s angels.
          xo

  33. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s now 12.36am and I’m off to bed as soon as I’ve done my email.

    The buzz I get from writing is tremendous – you must feel the same way about your paintings!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh well: Time to get everything read and then off to bed.

    Love and hugs!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Wow, you are still up. I hope you sleep like a rock tonight, Prenin!

      It’s 7:50 pm here. I’m going to watch WWE Monday Night Raw to see if there is a clip on Cena and Brock Lester…I hope Cena won. I’ve been getting caught up on my emails till then.

      Pleasant dreams, Prenin, and I will see you in the morning. Well, my morning, and your afternoon. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Love and Hugs!! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  34. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, the meds are now in my drawer and the JD is all gone – pity! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    The games are getting really good these days – almost real!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The racing games are a challenge, but most of the games I’ve seen advertised are multideath, maxi slaughter kind of games and I kind of prefer not to kill people! ๐Ÿ™‚

    He’s not knocked on my door in some time, so I am enjoying the lack of annoyance! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, he does indeed stink…

    We still have rain forecast and most of the south, south west and south east have had so much there are flood warnings and there have been a few deaths including a guy and his dog who drowned when his car was washed away!!!

    This has been the wettest April in a century…

    Yes, I hope you have a good week too my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!!!

    Prenin.

    • It must have been a very tiny bottle, Prenin.

      I know, they look like that could just jump out of a screen, sit down, and start talking to us…for what I can tell from TV commercials anyway.

      I’m sure it’s very nice not to have to talk to or smell him. Let’s hope he has given up on trying to bother you.

      It’s sort of cloudy today…overcast.

      It’s been quite wet here too.

      I hope you have a great week, my dear friend!
      Love and Hugs, xx

  35. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I thought I’d run out of ideas, but apparently not! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I spent most of the afternoon rattling the keys with the story flowing from my finger tips and just falling on the page! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We have a phone blocking service on Talk Talk which costs about ยฃ4 per month, but with it I can block any calls apart from ‘Unavailable’ and ‘Private’ as the latter is used by the Police.

    ‘Unavailable’ numbers are when somebody has opted for privacy, but I CAN get them blocked by Talk Talk, but so far I haven’t needed to.

    Thanks hun – I am staying home today, but the weather is good… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs right back atcha! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Nah, you’re not going to run out of idea…not for a good long while. You just do like that old Yellow Page add, “Let your fingers do the walking.”

      I had a feeling you were going to tell me there was a fee for such a thing. I think we could get it too, but doubt hubby would pay for it.

      You enjoy your day at home. I’m doing the same thing since we still have not come up with the funds to drive on the beach as of yet…bummer I know.

      Love and Squishy Hugs! โ™ฅ xx

  36. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah yesterday was good, but today I’ve kind of dried up, so I’m taking my brain off the hook for a while until the muse strikes again! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had to open the windows last night to chill the room down so I could sleep, so I guess I’m finally 100% after that damned bug! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Today I had to vote in the local elections for Malcolm Boriss who is a dude, but got a taste for power! LoL!!!

    He’s a decent bloke, but lost it a bit… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

    • You just need to rest your brain so you can find what’s in there again. ๐Ÿ™‚
      I’m glad your over that bug.
      Last night I was so hot…could believe it. I woke up sweating and kicked my blankets off me.
      Vote! Ack. The better of two evils no doubt.
      Love and squishy hugs, my dear friend! xx ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment my friend!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, I ran into Doug today and he swears he’s off the booze and is still trying to con the system into putting him back on Incapacity Benefits, this time because he claims he has either rheumatism or arthritis and can only do driving jobs! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I believe its all bull, as will the Job centre, but he does like to keep trying…

    Love and hugs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Duh, he would have to prove it first!

      You’re always welcome, Prenin, but you know I love to visit you to see what’s new with ya.

      Love and Hugs, xx

  38. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, a successful day was had and I really enjoyed it apart from the shopping centre being so crowded!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I added another piece to the story, but now I have to wait for some new ones to appear! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We have a lot of cloud here too and it’s rather chilly, but at least the wind has dropped – having it wailing around my door makes it hard to sleep… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  39. hallo liebe debby nach langer zeit mal wieder ein besuch an dich ich war sehr sehr krank cancer
    6 wochen schwere chemo und radio behandelung habe ich den cancer besiegt 90:/9 procent nun noch alle vier mohnate nachbehandelung war eine schwere zeit darum mein schweigen alles liebe fuer dich ein schoenes wochen ende jasmin damaro

    • Jasmin,
      How good to hear from you! I didn’t know you were fighting cancer and am so glad to hear you have beaten that monster. My husband is a survior of cancer as well, so I can imagine all you had to go through. Please stay well, and eat all the healthy foods you can that fight cancer.
      God bless you,
      Hugs โ™ฅ xx

  40. Hi sweetheart! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, I think it’s the long hours sat in front of this darned thing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The headache went away eventually, but it wasn’t fun…

    Love and hugs!!!

    Prenin.

    • Try pacing yourself with time spent on the computer for the sake of your eyes.
      I’m glad the headache went away.
      Love and Hugs xx

  41. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I didn’t add much to the story today, I just tidied up the past few chapters…

    I’m still working on the idea, but the logistics are a pain!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Somehow I have to pull together seven ships and a Church Militant combat team to rescue a bunch of colonists from slavers who raided a church colony.

    The idea has legs, but weaving it together is making it difficult.

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  42. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Funny you should mention it, but I’ve had ANOTHER small win! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The ticket is worth ยฃ5.40 (about $6) and I still have friday’s ticket to go! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It means I can pay for next week’s tickets and still have a little over! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This makes a whole month of wins!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s now 2.02am and bucketing down outside – I just hope it’s dry enough at lunchtime so I can get my milk! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  43. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, that makes a straight month of small wins! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here’s hoping for the big one!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I sure hope you win that big one someday! Then we you can afford to visit all your favorite friends…like me. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Love and squishy hugs! xx

      • Oooh YEAH!!!! LoL!!!

        Oh it is but to dream!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thanks for the visit and comment sweety! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I’m now dependent on Red, but I’ve insisted she take care of her business in hand as I’m pretty low priority.

        It’s nice to be on my way, but not at any cost to Red – she has little mouths to feed!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        The story looks OK, but Red pointed out I have poor grammar and, idiot that I am, I didn’t know what a verb was!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Put it down to a poor education… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Love and squishy hugs!

        Prenin.

        • Ah, you are a wonderful writer, Prenin! You know understand what a verb it now though, right? Like when I say you are one of my dearest(verb) friends, or that he his wonderful (verb) writing keeps me hanging on every word…like that. You use them all the time. The verb describes the noun.
          Your book is going to be great…I can feel it!
          Don’t call yourself names for not knowing something…you know what it is now. There is so much that we don’t know in this world, but we are not idiots for not knowing. The one that know, didn’t know at some point.

          Love ya, Hon with squishy hugs! xx

  44. Thanks Deb! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Verbs had me really confused, but mainly because the paragraphs looked fine until I had to cut them up to stay within the 36 word per paragraph limit.

    They read really well, otherwise… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I hoped it helped you a bit. Let me know if you need to know more. I don’t know all the grammar rules, but know quite a few.
      Just the same, you write extremely well. You use verbs all of the time…you just didn’t realize it.
      Love and Hugs xx

      • Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yes, I do don’t I? LoL!!!

        It’s only now I realise how poor my education really was – shocking really – but I guess I’ll struggle on! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thanks for the help hun – it was MUCH needed!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

        • lol…you kidder.
          Hey, don’t you let that keep you from doing what you want. You just write what’s in your heart and mind and allow the editor to tell you were to correct.
          You’re welcome…just hoped it helped a bit.
          Love and Hugs xx

  45. Just caught your second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the kind words hun – I just never knew that it would be such hard work! ๐Ÿ™‚

    IF I ever get the blessed thing published I’ll be amazed – and I still have two more books to do!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  46. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, my work on the book continues, but I’m doing it two chapters at a time as I need to edit ‘Songs of Angels’ ready for publication.

    I am learning a lot about writing, but the headaches mean I can’t work more than two hours at a time…

    I have dreams I remember and the good ones tend to fade.

    All I do know is that they are highly detailed and mostly at night… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  47. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad to accommodate! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I need to skip a dose of medication and take sleeping tablets at 9pm and be in bed by 10pm if I am to get up tomorrow! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Avoiding the news is a good idea – it keeps the mind engaged long after it should be resting…

    Yesterday we had bright sunshine and heavy rain – really weird!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    For a summer it has been a big bust so far…

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  48. Welcome back Debs!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, the luxury of fresh food is over – I’m now on cereal and frozen food now until I shop again next week!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Not a lot happened while you were away: Doug is trying to worm his way back into my good books – no chance – and Tony has taken to hassling Doug! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Last night one of Chris’s friends showed up at 1.30am and buzzed all the intercoms repeatedly for ten minutes until I grabbed my robe and went down to let him in.

    The lad was completely off his face on God alone knows what and was unable to get access to Chris who I could hear moving around, so God knows where he went next…

    The editing of the first book is a problem because I’m not so sure how I will resolve some of the fragments calved off by my having to reduce each paragraph to 36 words as Red told me to do, so it has been quite a challenge!

    I never thought that book writing could be so hard…

    The weather here was nuts for a while, frosts and even some snow in Scotland apparently, followed by heavy rain and sunny spells with a chilling wind, but today was nice and tomorrow will actually reach 25’C so I have dug out my electric fan so I can sleep.

    It was good winning ยฃ6.40, I used my winnings to buy this week’s tickets and today at 7am the leftover cash will be used towards buying food and milk, so it’s all good news! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Since I had a problem with a cold caller who was trying to get my personal details to sell on I’ve had several phone cold calls which I have fielded, but they keep calling back! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    All I can do is block the numbers until they run out of numbers…

    Glad you are back my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs always!

    Prenin.

    • First of off, I’m up really early, so no guarantee that my reply will make sense…lol
      Just started my second cup of coffee. The first one was apparently only and introduction to the stuff…lol

      The pleasure of fresh food gets further and far in between these days, so I know what you mean. None the less, a ham and tomato sandwich sounds delicious right about now…okay, for lunch then. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Doug: No, no, no, no, no, no…You know the routine. ๐Ÿ™‚ and to all his scumbag, so called, friends too. But I think you getting down to a science now. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      I guess I forgot who Chris is, but it sounds like he, or at least his friends, don’t have any respect for those resting at late hours, or wee hours of the morning. Sorry you had to get disturbed with the senseless buzzing like that.

      Why is it restricted to 36 words?…I’ve never heard of such a thing.

      It must be hard to write a book with so many things to consider in the lay out of them. No wonder the famous authors make the big bucks.

      You can buy a new ticket, bread and milk too…that’s great Prenin! I hope you win again with your new tickets too!

      I find that if I don’t answer the phone with pests like that call enough times that they give up calling after a while…make that a long while. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Yes, I’m back, and made an attempt to catch up on everyone’s posts I’ve missed, but the new ones are coming in so fast it is a loosing battle so I’ll just start fresh. That’s why I had asked you to give me a quick up date on all I missed with you while I was gone….thank you for that too, Prenin!

      Got my art supplies when on this trip. Remember I had forgot to bring them with me last March. That was a bummer. Now that I have them, I have no idea as to what I want to create with them. I guess it will come in it’s own good time…ideas I mean.

      Nice catching up with you, Prenin. You are the one friend I did not want to loose touch with and fall behind as what was going on with you. Don’t forget to hook up that fan before your next sleep. Try not to let it blow directly on your face so you don’t catch a cold…you sure don’t need that again.

      Love and squishy hugs! xx

      • Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I know what you mean about early mornings! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I don’t do them any more, but then I used to work for a living…

        Yep, The joys of fresh food! ๐Ÿ˜›

        The trouble with the supermarkets is that they are all about families and couples – the only single portions you can get are diet foods.

        I wonder why? LOL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yeah Doug is trying a charm offensive, but he isn’t getting past my door! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Chris is the druggy that lives in the flat above me.

        He’s dead quiet, but all his friends don’t tell you their names and are usually stoned…

        I had no idea you had to write a paragraph in no more than 36 words, but Red said it and she’s the expert I guess…

        Yeah, big bucks – I somehow have the feeling I won’t be seeing any of that! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        I’m now set up for the next few days with all the food I need, drinks, etc. and the weather is getting warmer so I’m feeling all hot and sweaty at the moment – and it’s only 25’C!!!

        I get fed up with cold callers, not least because the calls annoy me (they do!), but because they expect me to hand over my personal details to a complete stranger, buying a service I do not want! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Glad you want to stay in touch hun – I love you too!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Sounds like your painting and my writing have a lot in common! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Glad you got your stuff though – hopefully it’ll find a use soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

        The fan is set up to blow over my shoulders and I sleep facing away from it so I should be OK.

        Sure feels hot and sweaty though… ๐Ÿ™‚

        Love and squishy hugs!

        Prenin.

        • Yeah, my dog got me up early this morning….she’s a afraid of loud rain and thunder.

          I’m with you…fresh food rocks.

          All supermarkets care about is what sells for pad their pockets. They don’t care about our needs.

          Just don’t let that creep in your house. He ruin something of your for sure…remember how he use to do that to you? And getting into your laundry too. He is bad news and has evil motives. All them others you mentions sound of the wall too. You just keep to yourself when it comes to the folks in that building of yours.

          36 words!! No way. You pick yourself up any book written by a famous author. They all have MORE than 36 words in most paragraphs. I just looked in some of my books. Authors, Dean Koontz, Stephen King, John Saul, Clive Barker. Everyone of them had paragraphs as long as they needed them to be. You Google paragraph formatting too, to get yourself some help.

          Big bucks…same with my art. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh well, we have fun though don’t we.

          I’m glad you got everything you need for a stay in for a few days or so. Try to keep cool.

          Never give your information away over the phone. I won’t even do it if my bank was to call me…how is one to know if it’s really them?…there isn’t.

          Of course I want to stay in touch with you, Ian, your my friend. And I don’t like it when I go days with not seeing so many of your posts just pass me by, not knowing how you are. Sometimes you get sick…I want to know. Sometimes people give you shit…I want to know that too. You’re my friend. I love you too!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

          My painting, your writing all needs our inspirations. And that comes when it wants. It’s not easy to just dig it out of ourselves.

          I’ll get something drawn or painted with it…in due time I suppose.

          Okay, I just wanted to make sure it wasn’t blowing on your face….dust and stuff flying around a bit gets pushed into your lungs.

          Remember, we talked about a cool bucket of water to put your feet in last year when it gets too hot?…It’s helps cool you down. Also a cold cloth on your wrist and back of neck helps too. I also like to use corn starch based powdered (it’s absorbent) to help keep me from sweating. It also helps dry up some existing moisture between bathing times. ๐Ÿ™‚

          Love and big squishy hugs always! xx

  49. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know what you mean about keeping in touch – it’s damned hard work sometimes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yep we’ve had the coldest and wettest spring since records began, the honey bee is not a native of the UK so they haven’t been out pollinating crops which means there’s likely to be a widespread crop failure this year.

    The native bumble bee is equipped to handle our inclement weather, so there have been a few wandering around my windows! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I keep the windows open during the cooler part of the day, but the fan travels a lot depending on which room I’m in! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Last night it was 19’C outside so the flat didn’t cool off all that quickly.

    Mmmmm… Cookies!!! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

    A nice reward for an act of kindness! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs sweety! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Anytime, my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes, it’s like when you’ve been out sick 10 people come by to say hi, but each have about 10 posts that we missed. Hard to catch up. Good you and I understand each other…no pressure.

      Crop failure mean higher prices again.

      Sounds like you keep cool as we do. I open up the windows in the am if there is a cool breeze, till the hot part of the day…then air. Then it goes off when the sun starts to go down and we open the windows again. Prein, can you get yourself another fan sometime in the future so you don’t have to move the one you got room to room? That way when you leave a room you can just turn it off to save on power, then turn the other one on when you enter that room….it’d be a bit easier for you if you could get one.

      It was a bit warm last night here too.

      Yeah cookie! I didn’t have any, just a taste to make sure they came out right. Gave hubby 4 and the 28 to our friend next door. He’s a nice person. He keeps and eyes on this camper when we go back home in the winter. He’s call us if he thought there was any trouble or problems.

      Love and hugs to you, Hon! xx

  50. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s 4.26am here and getting on to dawn so things are getting brighter! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s 27’C in the living room with 40% humidity and 25’C in the bedroom, but there’s no breeze just the fan which is pumping cool air into the flat.

    I could wish for cloud – it’d help keep us cool! ๐Ÿ™‚

    On the plus side it isn’t raining so I guess that’s some good news! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh yes! If I win I have all my plans made, but the odds are very large – 78 MILLION to one – so I guess all I’ll ever do is dream about it…

    On the plus side I’ve had six small wins in two months so I am happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry you missed me hun – this crazy sleep pattern is a pain! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I missed this comment, Prenin, but caught it now.
      When I was out for a week I turned off “the hold comments for moderation.” Time to turn turn it back on…I catch the comments better that way.

      I always miss you when I don’t here from you at least once a day…Your my friend. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      It’s pretty tough to win the big one, but winning small ones as you’ve been doing has it’s pluses.

      Love and great big squish hugs! xx

  51. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s 1.46am here so Good Morning! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mmmm… I like fruit with my cereal too, but all they had on sale were Cheereos so I got two boxes.

    Now I’m drooling over the thought of fruity cereal! LoL!!!

    It’s 24’C in my bedroom and 27.4’C in the living room despite all the windows being open and it’s 19.1’C outside, but the breeze has dropped, so cooling down is a sloooow process after a day of hot sunshine – and we’re set for this all week… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope your weather improves! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I got 12:00 noon here, so you must be somewhere around 6:00 pm about now…give or take an hour or so.
      Fruit in cereal makes a big difference, Prenin. Look in your freezer section to watch for sales. Fruit is so good for you and blueberries helps rid belly fat too, not to mentions all the other great health benefits it gives you. Like lower cholesterol, blood pressure, fights cancer and all kinds of great stuff.

      Sunny today, but windy.
      Love and Hugs! XX

  52. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for popping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can’t help but work on them I’m afraid although I’ve completed one editing sweep of the first one and now I have to wait until Red has some time to take the next sweep and fix all the fragments and grammatical errors! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Apparently she spent some time in hospital, so I am waiting until I know she’s better before asking her to help again.

    The trouble is that I know little about grammar, although the second book has grown based on her rules, so I’m hoping it will need less editing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The third book is the nightmare: I have a few ideas for it, but no firm structure, so it will take time to put together and make it interesting.

    Oh well: At least the weather is cooler this morning – It has been rather warm these past couple of days…

    Love and squishy hugs my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • You’ll get it done…all in good time
      Red with get to feeling better soon. You know how that takes time.

      Hope it don’t get too hot for you today. Right now it’s 9:45 pm so it’s much cooler now than earlier. I’ll still need some air to sleep though.

      Don’t strain your eyes to much on those books…take breaks once in a while.

      Love and squishy hugs, my friend!! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

      • Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yeah time is what we have plenty of – now it is getting closer to being published the more scared I get! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        The fear of the unknown is not unusual, but I have been living on Incapacity Benefit for fifteen years and I have bad memories of being hungry pretty much all the time when I was job hunting and being ripped off by Tony who wouldn’t give me a full time job, yet was willing to anything to stop anyone employing me so I was forced to work for him whenever he needed me…

        Red being ill worries me too – she’s such an amazing person and I HATE people I care about getting ill and not being able to do anything to help them.

        It’s 3.15am here and there’s a chill draught coming from the windows, but the room is at 24’C.

        Hopefully it’ll cool down enough that I’ll get a good day’s sleep.

        I’m not working on the books tonight – too few ideas to make it worthwhile.

        Still: After weeks of effort it’s a good idea to take a break. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Love and squishy hugs my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Prenin.

        • Will you really loose your Incapacity Benefits if you make any sales on your book?

          I remember Red being in the hospital about a month ago, but if she was in again since then I have had no knowledge of it.

          The draft must feel great after being so warm all day. Don’t let the draft catch you a cold.

          You take yourself a good break, and then the ideas with come in like a flood.

          Love and squishy hugs, my dear friend!! xx

  53. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah Natural News included a piece on the nuclear disaster in Japan and the high levels of contamination in Tokyo – finding out the truth about the Nuclear disaster in Japan is like pulling teeth as the truth is enough to cause mass panic and nobody wants to admit that nuclear power is so dangerous!

    I just pray they get the river Severn tidal barrage built because nobody in their right minds wants nuclear power given it is so dangerous – and too many countries are determined to get nuclear weapons at any price.

    If Iran goes nuclear then it’s game over… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  54. Have a great rest of evening Deb and congratulations on your new
    Pirate Fraz Wombie Painting as it is definitely a wickedly exciting one ๐Ÿ™‚

    Androgoth XXx

    • Oh Wow! That a beauty! I may have to try my hand at that one day!
      I will be putting that on my gift page, my friend!…thank you!
      You have yourself a wicked and fun Wednesday!
      Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

  55. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, it’s a pain catching up!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad you’re back though – you’re a very popular lady! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Yes, new razor time! ๐Ÿ™‚

    They last for three or four shaves, then I have to get rid of them.

    I buy the blades in bulk, so by the time I run out they’ve come up with a new razor design! LoL!!!

    Thanks hun – hope you have a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  56. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, I was pretty busy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beryl sounds like fun – at least it’s drift away from you soon enough! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’ll probably just become a bit stormy here, although some years back we had a hurricane show up via the USA and the weather guy said not to worry – and Seven Oaks became Three Oaks! LoL!!!

    Love and hugs my sweet friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Many of these storms that hit landfall here and a tendency to fizzle out when they head back to see…but not always.
      The Tropical Storm Beryl is pulling her here now.
      Love and Hugs xx

  57. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The work on the book is now mostly fixing the mess I made of it the first time I edited it! LoL!!!

    I had a cooler day so I slept better thank goodness! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  58. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s getting warmer for you, but here it’s currently 17.6’C – too warm for a jacket and not cold enough to turn on the heating! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s currently 1.39am and I have a long morning ahead of me with lots of editing to do…

    Hope breakfast was nice – mine is cheerios and fresh milk so I’m looking forward to that later! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Love and squishy hugs my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

  59. I am just calling round with some freshly made pancakes, Fraz says that you can have three if you like and I have brought some maple syrup and chocolate surprise for you just in case you like both ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope that your weekend has been okay since the storms ebbed away and that you are ready for lots of wicked postings this week ๐Ÿ™‚ Have fun Deb and be good ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Androgoth XXx

    • Oh dear, I hope those pancakes are still fresh. I certain do have an appetite for them this evening!….Hm Hm Hm…they taste so good with chocolate syrup….thank you for sharing Fraz’s pancakes with me!
      The storm has gone away…finally. It was such a trouble maker.
      And alas, this evening, in about 2 more hours….WWE Monday night Raw Wrestling. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Have a most wonderful evening!
      Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

  60. Thank you for my lovely birthday gifts Deb
    and I have just added them to my Gifts page ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a very nice day
    with lots of fun times ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Androgoth XXx

    • Oh, you are so welcome, Andro! I hope you had a really nice birthday today, and and even better birthday night!
      Your are my one and only favorite Gothman!
      Extra hugs to you on this special day!! โ™ฅ XXxOO

  61. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks as always for the visit and comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You need to get new glasses my friend – you’ll be amazed at the difference! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the weather here is thick cloud with the threat of rain later.

    Good for the garden I guess… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  62. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment – now my stomach is rumbling, but I can’t eat for another hour as I put on 4.4Lbs when I broke my diet! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Still: I’m feeling better for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We had a dull grey start to the day and rain overnight, but as I write the fun day is in full swing and it is brilliantly sunny if a bit cloudy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It means I won’t get to bed until 7pm, but it’s all good fun!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  63. Have a very nice start to your Thursday Deb
    and well done on Fraz’s Beach House, it rocks ๐Ÿ™‚

    Androgoth XXx

    • Thank you, Andro! How nice to see a warm welcome to my day today! I’m glad you like Fraz’s Beach House! You must be feasting on lunch by now…or finished an hour or so ago. So I will wish you a great, late afternoon and evening.
      Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

  64. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I got my CD back, but I’m not risking using the CD player on my stereo – the new Zoom box works a treat and looks like the head of an insect! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The weather here is cold, wet, dull and grey, but I guess the plants need it even if there ARE flood warnings out… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I didn’t think you would, knew you wouldn’t risk it. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Haha…it looks like a bug!….that’s cool, Prenin!

      Cold again…crazy weather where having. They said nothing but sunshine today, not even a cloud in the sky, but what did it do?…Poured like hell. The whole sky turned gray and angry. The thunder scared Cassie too!

      Love and hugs XX

  65. Just caught your second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I think Janice will love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My birthday is coming up so soon I’ll have to order Pat’s birthday present.

    This year it will be a set of Abelone earrings to match the necklace I bought her last year! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The new Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) radio works without the antenna and the CD player is dead simple to use! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It even plays MP3 files loaded on CD or SD card! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • She’ll love it…and appreciate it! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Your birthday is this July…I forgot which day. Tell me which day, Prenin. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Glad it’s easy to use. Some things just shouldn’t be complicated….lol…like everything really. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Sounds like it does just what you need and want it to do!. I’m happy for ya, my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hot dogs and fries tonight!

      Love and Hugs xx

      • Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yes, I’ll be 52 come July 6th – God I’m getting old!!! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yes, it’s a very good buy and has a few wrinkles I’ll have to learn about, but apart from that it’s fine! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I had Mushroom and broccoli melt with potato wedges! ๐Ÿ˜›

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

      • That sounds delicious…except for the mushrooms. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can tell you love’em though.
        Having breakfast now.
        Warm and sunny today.
        Hugs xx

  66. Hey Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tell me: If the mushroom buys all the drinks is he a Fungi to be with??? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just a thought! LoL!!!

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  67. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚ Just caught your second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes the time difference is odd isn’t it? ๐Ÿ™‚

    The book continues to grow – the new short story just kind of fell together, but it was fun to write! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The internet is acting up – this comment may not post…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • It posted! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Yes it is.
      I can tell you had fun writing it. That’s what’s all about…have fun with what you do!
      I was drawing after I had my breakfast…then I vacuumed. Think I’ll go back to drawing.
      Hey, comment on “Fraz’s post that I posted last night. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Love and Hugs xx

  68. The third comment didn’t post.

    Third comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Be glad you don’t remember your dreams – some of mine are really scary !!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  69. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I was up early OK – Sleep was interrupted just when I was having a nice dream! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have the finish figured out, but getting there is a problem because I keep having more and more interesting ideas that stretch the story out still further! ๐Ÿ™‚

    No worries though: It’s all good fun… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah it was raining earlier and coming down pretty hard, but it’s stopped again at least for now – tomorrow is going to be more heavy rain and flooding.

    A dam in Wales has begun to breach because of all the rain so they’ve evacuated 600 people from a village further down the valley… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Oh to win the lottery! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know it’s a vain hope, but I keep trying… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  70. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, Aquatom has already tried it, but it didn’t last long before he was back to square one.

    What gets me is that my browser kept coming back with a server error which really confused the issue! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Tom had the same thing despite trying four browsers!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Oh well!

    Tomorrow is shopping day and it threatens to be rather wet, but I’ll manage! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Too weird Prenin! I trust yours is still working okay?
      Sounds like Tom has additional troubles on his computer.
      Love and Hugs xx

      • Maybe!

        He’s back posting though which is the main thing! ๐Ÿ™‚

        My God the amount of data that gets stored on our computers!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

        • Glad things are looking better for Tom too! ๐Ÿ™‚
          The order that I clean up my computer often since the computer has to remember it all is as follows.
          I empty my spam mail, then my trash bin, then I clear the history (cache, cookies, and sh#t), then I use Disk cleanup, then I Defrag. The whole thing only takes about 5 minutes once you get use to doing it. It gives back a bunch of your computers memory because it doesn’t have to remember all the junk that got tossed out. So get on a schedule. My pc is set for a schedule but I don’t think it actually does it…so I do it myself to make sure its done. And you can do all that as often as you want too! ๐Ÿ™‚
          You have a great day, and I hope your computer is running better than it has in a while.

          Love and Hugs xx

  71. Hi Deb! I haven’t the foggiest notion what is going on!
    I’ll follow your guides as it is possible that I could have missed something, but I can’t understand why it’s only WordPress that’s affected, and how others have similar problems at the same time. However, I am a believer of coincidence, so shouldn’t really be surprised.
    I’m still getting the error messages, but when I close the browser and open another one I’m OK for a short while.
    I will persevere!
    Thanks for your help, Deb! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Go though the steps again as I outlined for Prenin up above there. Then make sure you re-start your computer. It’s takes a while to defrag so go ahead and do that one after everything else and after the computer re-start. Don’t forget to clean out the spam in your mail box as well as the trash bin.
      If after all that. You might want to see what you can ride of on your computer that you have no use for what so ever…images, documents..etc, etc. then do the steps again.
      If all that don’t work, then write to WP and share your problem with them, but only after you have cleared your cache because that will be the first thing they may ask you.
      Good luck!
      Hugs xx

  72. From the look of the photographs, your
    little sweethearts are enjoying the beach Deb ๐Ÿ™‚
    Have a very enjoyable time this evening and
    keep adding to your Space, it gets better every
    time I visit you here ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Androgoth XXx

    • They are having the time of their little lives on the beach…playing, walking, running around and all the freedom to bark they want.
      I’ll keep adding more things as you see I have been. Seems I’ve evolved from just and art blog to a blog.
      Have a wicked evening, my fine friend!
      Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

  73. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had to clear my cache AGAIN this morning because wordpress was sending the same error message.

    It worked and I now have access again, but there is something seriously wrong with wordpress!!!

    Love and hugs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • WordPress may be having some trouble on your end. But even it your are not ever having trouble with them, you still need to get in the habit of clearing your cache. Along with all the other things I mentioned to you.
      Love and Hugs xx

      • Will do hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

        The cache is supposed to delete stuff after 20 days, but for some reason it didn’t.

        Not that it matters: The problems came back even AFTER I deleted the cache, but all other sites worked normally…

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

        • Mine is scheduled to empty too, but I do it myself to be sure. If I know I did it, then I know it got done. But really, Prenin, wordpress aside for a moment, you need to do that regularly. 20 days is quite a long time for someone who goes from blog to blog every day and has as much mail to open as you.
          When are you going to contact WordPress. You could have heard back from them by now to help you. They don’t know your in trouble unless you tell them.

          Love and Hugs xx

  74. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks as always for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yep: One set of errands done and now I have to go today for milk and cordials – there’s always something! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s bright and sunny at the moment so I’m enjoying it while it lasts!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  75. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the bills keep rolling in, but the good news is that I am in a good position – I’m even paid over two months of rent extra so I can take a rent holiday if I need to! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I always love to visit – you’re a lovely person! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’ve had gale force winds and torrential rain for most of today, the rain quitting about 8.30pm.

    We’re expecting more heavy rain overnight and it’s still blowing a gale outside so I suspect we’ll see some broken branches and maybe a fallen tree or two… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Keep cool my sweet friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I use to do that when I rented too. If I had enough to pay two months worth, then I’d do it without a second thought!
      Sounds like a pretty soggy day, Prenin! You keep dry and stay out of drafts when things are went. You know how easy you can catch a cold. ๐Ÿ™‚
      It’s been hot and muggy here, but we’re also having some fires across the sound like we did last year. I have to read up more about it to tell you anymore than that though…Hubby told me about it after my dog groomer told me yesterday. Which reminds me. Cici hair is all gone…short and looking like a Chihuahua…lol
      Love and Hugs xx

      • Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yep: Soggy day is an understatement – the big outdoor Festivals were on across the country and they’ve turned into a sea of mud! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        They’ve had to hire in tractors to haul the cars off the parking fields as they are up to their bellies in the softened ground and some people have been camping in their cars waiting to get ferries to the Isle of Wight and even the Olympic Torch relay had to do its thing indoors because of the sheer volume of rain!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        At one point the Olympic Torch had to be re-lit because of the sheer volume of rain!!!

        I took a look at Redbubble and was amazed! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Hope you have a good summer Debs – ours is going to be something of a washout as we’ve had a month’s rain in just one day…

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

  76. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your second comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know what you mean about getting behind – I have to check my email three times a day and, thankfully, I have the time to do it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    If I have a problem I’ll email – so far all is well apart from the inclement weather!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I can check mine that much too, but find it very difficult to keep up with the new posts and replying to my own commenter’s on my blog too. I’m glad you understand. I can remember when I didn’t ever miss one of your posts…not one. You just keep my email handy if you should need it.
      I love ya!
      Squishy hugs a plenty, my friend! xx

  77. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes we have strong winds and a lowering sky – we could have more rain if a shower passes by, but the worst of the weather is over (for now!).

    Hope you weather the storm OK – here I’m debating whether or not to go to church in case I get caught in the rain! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Yeah I hate having bills unpaid – I had some bad times when I didn’t have the money to cover my debts so these days I buy nothing unless I have the money to cover it!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ooh to win the lottery! LoL!!!

    It is my dream, but one which may never be realised, but still I try and I dream…

    Bon appetite my sweet friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs always!

    Prenin.

    • Sometimes you just have to do what is safest for you, Prenin.
      I hate unpaid bills. I’m like you, don’t buy it unless I already have the money to pay for it.
      Yeah, a huge win would be nice. Nothing wrong with dreaming about it Prenin, as long as it doesn’t consume you.
      Dinner was carb and fats city last night…Hot dogs and Mac & Chs.
      Love and hugs always xo

  78. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, it is 2.35pm here! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes the wind can be destructive – right now it is gusting, but not too hard! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sounds like you are in for some rotten weather – right now the country is cleaning up after the floods which have wreaked havoc! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I have frozen ready meals which are small (about 230Calories) but if I am to lose weight I have to think small and starve slowly…

    You have a great Sunday too my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love ya!

    Prenin.

    • There’s a few storm systems out in the Atlantic again so we’re all bound to feel a little something at some point or other.
      That’s not that many calories. I hope you eat several of those through the day. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I’ll be home today. Hubby will watch NASCAR (Car racing) and I likely take advantage of space at this camper table to paint…I hope. I better figure out what it’s going to be now to give me more painting time.
      Love you too! Hugs xx

  79. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks as always for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You were lucky it was such a short shower – a lot of South and Western UK took a hammering with lots of flooding, so mud and sewage are having to be removed to make the homes clean and safe! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    The good news is we are due a couple of days of rain, but also some warm weather so we’ll be sweating as it will be humid with thunderstorms bubbling up here and there.

    Amazing how weird the weather has been the past few years… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  80. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yup: July 6th I’ll be another year older, but maybe not wiser! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes the weather IS unusually wet for the time of year, but it’s cooler today and humidity is at 33% so we’re getting occasional rain showers – there’s one falling as I write – so no blazing June for us I’m afraid…

    Hope you have a great summer! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Yes, I know, you will be 52! ๐Ÿ™‚
      It’s really windy here today, but will be gone by tomorrow.
      Maybe your weather will improve for July.
      Love and hugs! xo

  81. Hey if I don’t see you today, enjoy your
    Saturday night smackdown, hey if anyone
    saw this and didn’t know what I was talking
    about they could easily think that it was a
    little bit too kinky ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ But as we know that
    it’s all about wrestling it’s okay ๐Ÿ™‚

    Enjoy your day and evening Deb ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
    Oh and give Cici and Cassie a choco
    doggy bone from me ๐Ÿ™‚

  82. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Today is much better, just heavy showers, but I’m still staying home! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We were lucky this time – just one death – but even that is one death too many…

    Yeah we’ve had a windy few days too, but it seems to be easing off…

    Always glad to visit my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs always!

    Prenin.

    • Hi Prenin, Nice to see you. Glad to hear your staying dry and out of all the water. Out here we having a saying, “Don’t drown! Turn Around!” ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Sorry to hear someone died from the bad weather your having. It’s always tragic.
      You stay dry now. :;-)
      Love and Hugs xx

  83. It is solved now Deb and thank
    you for calling by my great friend ๐Ÿ™‚

    I changed the picture on the

    Grrrr

    • Just went and had a look. I like that pair much better than the last pair. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Have a wicked evening, my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

        • No smackdown tonight. That’s on Fridays, and Monday night Raw on Mondays. Though this Tuesday there having an extra show.
          Hubby gets to watch in NASCAR tonight instead of tomorrow.

          • I used to watch Nascar on Sky Sports but now I am on a different network so never see a lot of it, although they sometimes have it on a programme called Eurosport, its fun watching that but I am of course an F1 fan myself and next week it is the British Grand Prix so I am looking forward to that race ๐Ÿ™‚

            Enjoy your evening my great friend ๐Ÿ™‚

            Androgoth XXx

            • I know you like that Formula One a good bit. You always disappear for a while when their one…it’s fun though! Mitch likes to watch racing far more than wrestling, where I like the wresting more. I used to watch the races, but now I just look at the screen for a replay of the wrecks…that’s the best part of racing to me. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
              You enjoy your evening too, my friend! I certainly enjoyed talking with you this evening. Oh hey, ! You save me some chocobamo burgers and wine gums at Wombania. I know how everybody hogs em up! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
              Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

            • They always hog the one’s that you make because they have extra toppings of chocomarshmellows and everyone craves those especially when you add the wine gums on top as an extra treat ๐Ÿ™‚ Mmmmmmmm

              I have enjoyed talking to you too Deb ๐Ÿ˜‰

              Androgoth XXx

            • Oh your toppings are way better than mine, as you have such a creative way with words! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
              I had fun too, Andro! ๐Ÿ˜‰
              Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

            • Hey believe me, your toppings are definitly yummylicious ๐Ÿ™‚

              Androgoth XXx

            • I think when I see Fraz again I will offer him a mongobongobooboobutburger with chococherry sauce. :-)..Now don’t you tell him I have some of those. ๐Ÿ™‚
              Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

            • Hey mums the word ๐Ÿ™‚ lol

              I hope there will be some of those for me too ๐Ÿ˜‰

              Androgoth XXx

            • Of course there will be some for you, In fact, usually if I offer it to you first, and you like it. Fraz is sure to want it…lol

  84. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, it was a good buy – I like chicken and black pepper casserole so I use it on my frozen weight watcher meals! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Yes, we’ve had a lot of heavy rain over the past month and it was a record breaker as some people got a month’s rain in a day! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    We’ve seen a dramatic increase in spring and summer rainfall, yet we’ve had three relatively dry winters so the weather is very confused! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    The irony is that there is still a hosepipe ban in parts of the East of the country , so they have been desperate for rain, yet most of it has fallen in the North, South and West!!!

    We’re supposed to get rain here today and the humidity is at 28% so I’m not looking forward to church as it is always warm and sticky inside on days like this! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Yesterday we had 57% humidity so it was hard to get to sleep…

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  85. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve been watching all the reports on the damage those storms caused, ripping up trees and downing power lines – hope you’re well away from all that!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Here the weather is wet and humid – lots of rain and pretty horrible! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Hope it gets better for you real soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

    • At the moment it’s sort of sunny, but I can clearly see that the bad weather is going to hit us again. I’ll stay safe. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Love and Hugs xx

  86. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the birthday greeting! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yesterday I had food at Pat’s place with Pat and the girls, got four cards and ยฃ60 which will come in VERY useful! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We had chicken kebabs (Pat loves to cook), cake and I was given a beer while Becky and Emily drank tea as they had to be able to get home! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Bonnie, Richard and Isabella were there and I got the chance to make a big fuss of baby William who is a big boned kid for his age! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know I swore never to look after kids ever again after what I was put through, but the girls know me from personal experience as I looked after them from being babies, so it was kind of hard to say no! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  87. Have a brilliant weekend with lashings
    of sweet delights, and everything that
    you enjoy the most Deb ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Androgoth XXx

    • Thank you, Andro! I think I will, but you have to promise to do the same, my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

      • Yes well it is my Formula One this weekend deb and so as it is the British Grand Prix it should be very nice indeed ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

        Androgoth XXx

        • In that case I hope you have a really good time watching it!
          Here is a wombobongospamboburger to get you started off!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
          Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

          • Mmmmmmm I love those, especially with
            those delicious toppings that you always
            add to them, the flavours are Wombielucious ๐Ÿ™‚

            Thank you my great friend ๐Ÿ™‚

            Androgoth XXx

            • You’re most welcome, my great friend! Any treats of mine, are treats to be shared with you!
              Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

  88. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah we had a bit of dry weather yesterday after a night and morning of drizzle and occasional heavy rain!

    Oh well: It’s good for the plants! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m back to a good place sleep-wise. Awake early and in bed by 2pm! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Black Judge is finished so I left a copy for Red to look at on Google docs.

    Lord knows what the third one will be about…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • OMG, You finished your book! Congratulation, my friend!
      Oh yes, the weather. It rains, it stops, the wind blows, it’s nice. Same ole thing all the time…lol
      You’ll think of something! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Love and hugs xx

      • Thanks for the visit and comment Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I have a rough idea of how the new story will start, but I need to think about it! ๐Ÿ™‚

        The trouble with writing seems to be getting started, but I’m having a short break before I start hitting the keyboard! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yeah we’ve had crazy weather these past two months: Places that have never flooded before were feet deep in water, roads became rivers and people died… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Love and squishy hugs!

        Prenin.

  89. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry you’re not feeling well today – hope you get well soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    No, I didn’t give in to Doug, but he hasn’t been back since the last begging letter.

    He’s a drunk, a liar and a controlling deviant who cares only for his own desires…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  90. Hi Debs!

    Just caught your second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the book reads OK, but the end feels a little rushed, so I’m hoping Red has a few ideas when she gets to read it – I insisted she leave it until she clears her desk after her hospital stay.

    The third book has begun, but I’m waiting for the muse to strike again as I’m out of ideas at the moment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  91. Hey are you on a trip or something,
    I’ve not seen you blogging anything
    lately, or are you too busy soaking
    up those rays? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ Don’t blame you
    if you are Deb and don’t forget that
    sun blocker either ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Have a fun evening
    now and be good ๐Ÿ™‚

    Androgoth XXx

    • I’m going to be posting a new one is just a little while. Doing Friday’s early because of my friends in the England area, such as you. ๐Ÿ™‚
      No beach today…it rained. Plus I’ve been sick, but feel much better…no concerns.
      I’ll be visiting you later on, my great friend!
      Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

      • Hey if I had known that you were poorly
        I would have sent the skeletons round to
        pamper your every need, well they can
        be very caring when they want to be so
        no worries about them running off with
        your pancakes and marshmellows ๐Ÿ™‚ lol

        Hey you, get well soon
        and take things easy ๐Ÿ™‚

        Androgoth XXx

        • Lol…. A skeleton that won’t run off with my pancakes? Wo! They better not pinch them either. :_) ๐Ÿ˜‰
          Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

          • They might pinch something else
            so be careful where you bend over ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Have a fun evening Deb
            and get well very soon ๐Ÿ™‚

            Androgoth XXx

            • Hehe….I’ll need one of Fraz’s tramps that he uses for Zombies.
              Hey, stay tuned. Getting ready to post for Friday since it’s Friday where you are. ๐Ÿ™‚
              Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

            • Okay I will wait and see, but going soon
              it’s been a long day so far and I need a
              cuppa and a biscuit before some Zzzz’s
              and I have to be up at 07.00 so only six
              hours away now ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I will wait Deb ๐Ÿ™‚

              Androgoth XXx

            • Hey I won’t be hitting the sack yet
              I am going to have coffee and watch
              Van Helsing first, well some of it ๐Ÿ™‚

              Androgoth XXx

            • I kind of thought that it was weird for a Vampire to be going to bed before daylight. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
              Hey, I want to watch that too!
              Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

            • Yes well I sometimes slip the lid back on
              before daylight and that way I can have a
              bit of… hey a bit of marshmellow on my
              own without the Wombies after it ๐Ÿ™‚ lol

              Yes Van Helsing is a brilliant film Deb ๐Ÿ™‚

              Androgoth XXx

  92. Hey hurry up with your posting I am
    getting sleeeeepy here you know ๐Ÿ™‚ lol

    Androgoth XXx

  93. It was definitely worth the wait Deb
    and thank you for the giggles, it is an
    amazing painting full of fun and a
    thrilling addition to your work here ๐Ÿ™‚

    Androgoth XXx

    • I’m glad! ๐Ÿ™‚ I wanted to post it today (thursday) so you’d have a look for Friday. ๐Ÿ™‚
      I’m heading over to your site now, so go on with your snacking. Thanks for waiting on me! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

      • Hey you are welcome Deb ๐Ÿ™‚
        Hope your Sunday is going
        very sweetly ๐Ÿ™‚

        Androgoth XXx

        • It’s going. I just left Wombania and left a few comments.
          That post you waited on the other night, well I brought it by for you as a gift that night….left it on your guestbook page but thought the comment may had gotten lost in the shuffle of things.
          Today is the hubby’s birthday…65th. So it’s pretty much been all about him today. Not getting to much artwork done, but do have one I did the other day that I’ll post later.
          Hope your having a wicked Sunday evening, my dear friend! ๐Ÿ™‚
          Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

  94. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the kind words! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The new story is going slowly, but I guess I’ll get it completed eventually – there’s no rush! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have ordered new furniture and needed help to get rid of my old stuff, so I asked Doug if he wanted it and he said yes – then told me he’d been sick for six days and had vomited on his carpet and hadn’t cleaned it up!

    He then spent an hour removing vomit sodden newspapers and shoving them down the chute, but his carpet is beyond saving.

    The upshot is that now he needs me to help him dispose of his carpet and he’s begged ยฃ10 off me for a drink, but without telling me what it was for.

    Needless to say I’m not stupid, but he’s got me over a barrel…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  95. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah it’s been a long while coming and if it hadn’t been for the fact it was one third off in the sale I wouldn’t have been able to afford it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I guess it was a case of right time, right place! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Right now I have my old stuff to shift, but once that’s done, then I’ll be ready to arrange the payment and delivery! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I will, literally, be spending more than I ever have in my life before (ยฃ999 + ยฃ25 delivery), but it’ll be worth it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have also made sure it does not contain any bags of anti-fungal chemicals as a lot of people suffered chemical burns a few years back because Argos had been selling leather furniture with them in! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  96. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, my dreams are good, but I forget most of them! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Doug has no furniture at the moment so he’s in desperate need.

    On the plus side it stirred him to clean his flat for the first time in five years – you literally couldn’t see the floor!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I know I’m asking for trouble by helping him, but I feel sorry for the dumb old booze hound – and the alternative would have been Tony who is a drug addict and alcoholic with prison tattoos.

    NOT a good choice… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  97. Just calling by to see what you are
    getting up to Deb ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol Hope you are
    much better now my great friend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Androgoth XXx

    • Hubby’s races have only been on for 2 hours so far, so I’m still thinking of getting a painting done, but have no idea what of….brain dead.
      I’m all better now, Andro, it was just a weird passing thing.
      Did you watch your games on the set today?
      Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

  98. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes it’s good to finally achieve such a long-term goal and the good news is that it was on Sale, so I got a ยฃ1,499 suite for ยฃ999!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yep: Red’s evaluation was a big boost and my third book, ‘Far Traveller’ now runs to 21 pages as of my last piece of work today! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, the day passes well and in half an hour or so I’ll be in bed dreaming of my new furniture! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The only catch is that I have to pay the delivery guy ยฃ25, but it beats doing the job myself! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Now I’m off to read the last of my email and then go back to racing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • The fee for the delivery guy is a small price to pay considering you won’t have to muscle all of it. It will be done in a flash. You did get a good deal…enjoy it, my friend! Hey, maybe you could send me some photo of it…I’d like that. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Good luck with your book writing, my friend…you’re well on your way!
      Love and hugs xx

  99. Have a really nice rest of evening
    and a super fangtastic Wednesday
    too my great friend ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜›

    Androgoth XXx

  100. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the kind words Deb! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, two books down and one to go! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I felt like I was walking round with a ยฃ50 note pinned to my ass screaming ‘VICTIM!’ LoL!!!

    The new furniture arrived OK – All is on my latest post including photographs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Don’t worry, Doug has reached rock bottom and has started to dig… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love you too hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    God Bless!

    Prenin.

  101. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes the new furniture is finally here and surprisingly lightweight! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I chatted with my mum and I have to get a leather dressing to rub on them to keep the leather from cracking so I’ll look for that the next time I go shopping! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes the racing was fun and I can sit cross-legged on it too, so I’m happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the kind words hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Now I need to save up for my next big project, though what it is I don’t know yet… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just saw Doug ten minutes ago and he was playing the old soldier routine after spraining his right wrist.

    Ollie took him to hospital, but all they gave him was a sling! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Guess that’s put an end to his sex life for the next few weeks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I’m just glad that you are very happy with your new furniture!…that makes me happy too! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Hard to say what the next big project with be, but good to save for what you don’t know it for yet anyway, because we never really know what we could need it for.

      Eeeeew! I could give a rats a## about Dougs sex life. Ack! why the heck did you give me a mental image!
      He’ll be up to his old trick again trying bugging you at your door regularly too. He saw money go from your hand to his several days ago and regardless of the purpose of it, it will set him off on a new pestering spree. And don’t let his skanky a## sit on it either….just saying. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰

      You have a great day, my fine friend!…and enjoy the new luxury!
      Love and hugs xx

      • Thanks hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yeah he’s back playing games and putting on the usual ‘poor Doug’ routine, but I will just not let him get away with it! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Doug is a typical alcoholic, as is Tony, in that they are two faced, devious and manipulative.

        Unfortunately for him I had plenty of experience with Darrell so I’m not the pushover he thinks I am! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Besides which he turned up with his arm in a sling – with the pressure point on his so-called sprained wrist!

        If I’d have done that I’d have been in agony!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

        • He probably hurt it due to a pickled brain….they have bad balance.
          Yeah, just ignore him…don’t give in even once and he go away…might take a while though since he thinks things are something they’re not….lol
          Have a good one, my friend!
          I love ya! Hugs xx

  102. I hope that you enjoyed your wrestling night Deb
    and that the wrestlers performed to optimum standard ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a naughty and wicked rest of evening now ๐Ÿ™‚

    Androgoth XXx

  103. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah everything is going up and my income isn’t rising with it because the Government is trying to make cuts everywhere they can.

    If they aren’t dismantling the welfare state as they claim, then they are making a good impression of it…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • The government does the very same thing to us, Prenin! Anything where they can make cuts they will…unless it’s their paycheck. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Love and hugs xx

  104. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes I really enjoy writing, but I’m past the easy stage and it’s a challenge to find fresh ideas! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love thunder storms! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We had a bad one about five years ago and we were hit twice as well as the power lines in Chadderton which is just North of me.

    The hit sent out a shower of orange sparks I could see from half a mile away! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The storm lasted about two hours and I have it on video! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I love thunder storms too, but I can do without the excessive lightening! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Sound like you had a really bad one too, back then! You’ll have to share the video sometime!
      Love and hugs xx

  105. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for popping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tomorrow is my big shopping day and I need to get my medication too.

    It’s 39% humidity in my front room at the moment and 25’C outside, so it feels a bit sticky.

    We also have rain North of us, but so far it hasn’t reached this far South although the warning is for rain tomorrow at some point… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    The writing goes slowly, but the story continues to grow.

    I don’t know when I’ll finish, but it’s fun getting there… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  106. Hi Deb I have added your painting to my Mars script
    and the archive date is the 21/06/2012 and thank you
    for allowing me to use it, I have added a link back to
    your Space my sweet friend ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Enjoy your Wrestling ๐Ÿ™‚

    Androgoth XXx

  107. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes we have a mix of sun and cloud today so it is just 24.5’C at the moment. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s the humidity that’s the killer – you sweat and it goes nowhere! LoL!!!

    Harpic is, indeed, deadly stuff. It took two hours to clear the blockage and the smell was horrible! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Get it on your skin and you’re ‘digested’… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Thanks for the best wishes hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love ya!

    Prenin.

  108. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah Summer is almost over here too, but it’s cloudy and still raining… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  109. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah we’ve had a cool day here with a mixture of sun and showers.

    I keep dreaming about what I’d do if I had the money, what charities I’d support and what I’d do, but as long as I keep buying the tickets there’s still hope… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the best wishes Deb and I hope the same for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah, love and squishy hugs right back atcha!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    God Bless!

    Prenin.

  110. Second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah it sounds hot and sticky where you are. Here it’s 13’C and cloudy so I’m comfortable! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you get some cooler days soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  111. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sounds like you had a taste of our weather sure enough! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The cookies sound great, but I’m not allowed any because of my cholesterol levels.

    Next stop: Statins!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope your Hubby is OK hun – heart problems are the bane of old age! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and squishy hugs always! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Yes, and I’m packing it up in a box and sending it back to you…I don’t want it anymore. ๐Ÿ˜†
      Hubby’s heart is fine, we just both have high cholesterol, but are keeping it managed.
      Love and Hugs xx

  112. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yep: It was a quick trip for milk and lottery tickets.

    Chances of a win are remote to put it mildly, but I keep trying… ๐Ÿ™‚

    I managed a new chapter which needs a bit of polish, but it reads well.

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Hey Andro! Thanks for calling by. I’m just staying low key today. I feel tired and unproductive so I’ve just been taking it easy!
      Have a great evening, my great friend!
      Hugs โ™ฅ XXx

      • Hey have you booked up again yet Deb ๐Ÿ™‚
        It is time for some Olympic paintings ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Have a fun rest of
        evening and be good ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Oh, I haven’t been watching the Olympics, I usually wait to watch the winter Olympics. If I don’t think of something maybe you could paint one.
          While I got you here, may I ask why you deleted all of your posts.

          Tonight I will watch Impact Wresting.
          Hugs xo

    • I’ve certainly missed you, Allie! I came by your blog a few time…as you know, but you were no where to be found. It’s so good to hear from you!
      Hugs xx

      • I know you came by but I lack of time to respond and couldn t keep up with things around here. Hope we can catch up and get to know eachother more. ๐Ÿ˜€
        Have a great day, Deb!
        Hugs! xx

        • Life has a way of doing that to us. It happens to me to, but try to do a little blogging each day too, sometimes more, sometimes less. I agree, I’d love to get to know you a bit better, I’ve known you for about a year now, but have never had the chance.
          You have a great day, Allie! Hugs a plenty! xo

  113. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My imagination is asleep at the moment.

    I managed to add half a chapter, but then I dried up again. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Oh well: Maybe tomorrow I’ll be more on form! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The day is serene, so I’m happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Kind of a drag when that happens, huh Prenin. And that’s about how I feel now. I painted a little, nothing much…I’ll post is shortly.
      Enjoy today all you can…who knows if tomorrow will get here…really.
      Love and squishy hugs! xo

  114. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your day sounds a lot like mine. Hope you enjoy the painting!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Those Phishing scams are showing up every day now – Guess they know my email is ‘live’…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  115. Hi Debs!

    Third comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Don’t knock quiet days! LoL!!!

    I’ve had too many of the other kind…

    Yeah the skies are grey, we are threatened with showers, but at least it isn’t cold… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Yes, 3, I was behind and had to catch up so you know I love ya, my friend!
      Whose knocking quite days? I love them!
      Oh good, glad your not having another one of those cold days!
      Love and Hugs xx

  116. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The poems are great – I’ve read it twice! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I didn’t sleep last night so I’d be able to get to the shop and back before the kids were up and went to bed finally at 1.07pm only to be awakened by kids buzzing the intercoms looking to get in because there was a distant thunder storm at about 5.30pm.

    I was half asleep and heard adults voices so I thought they would look after them, but they just turfed the kids out so they buzzed my intercom to be let in again.

    This time I didn’t answer! ๐Ÿ™‚

    If I hadn’t been half asleep I wouldn’t have let them in, in the first place… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Now I’m wide awake and looking forward to yet another long night.

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  117. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks as always for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah it was a really weird post to read!

    I’ve never seen somebody profess love of another then set out to destroy them in the eyes of the reader!

    Yeah I’ve been sleeping weird hours again, but the weather has been a mix of good sunny weather and thundery showers, so I guess I should be glad I didn’t need to go out! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs my lovely friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

  118. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We now know Curiosity is down and safe, so the panic is over, but now comes the science which I’m looking forward to! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah my insides are back to normal, though God knows what I ate to cause this kind of reaction!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’ve had weird weather the past few days, but so far the showers have been few and short! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hate high humidity – feels like you’re trying to breath soup… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs always! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Their idiots for taking the chance going up there in my opinion. And a waste of money.
      Glad your feeling better, my friend.
      I hate the humidity too, yes, like breathing soup…smothering.
      Love and squishy hugs, my friend! xo

  119. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I did another two long chapters today and I have still only got about a quarter of the way through it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have no idea when they’ll be offered for publishing as I have to complete book three to have a trilogy to offer them! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the best wishes – it’s warm here so sleep will be a problem tonight.

    Tomorrow is Bank, mail and shopping day and it’s going to be warm and dry! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs my sweet friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

  120. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks as always for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah a frost free fridge would be nice, but I’m a bit short of funds for the next two years! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Don’t worry hun I’ll get there – eventually!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope life is treating you well sweety! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs to you and the Big Guy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

  121. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Second comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    No worries, you got here hun and that’s all that matters! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I got HALF the shopping done as I still have half a freezer full of food, but once it’s defrosted I’ll just go buy the frozen stuff…

    I’ve been watching the weather down your way and you had a class one hurricane battering the south so I’m not surprised you’ve seen some rain! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Hope the weather improves soon!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  122. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I completed another chapter and re-read the whole thing, catching a few spelling mistakes and two factual errors! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m now up to chapter thirty six, but what I’ll write I do not know… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I’ve been looking at the National Hurricane centre website and there’s storm seven tracking in with 30mph winds and a new threat growing despite the sea conditions not being bad enough for a hurricane, so we’ll see… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hopefully nothing will head your way, but as you say, it’s the middle of the season… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs always! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • I know something will come to mind for you to write…you always think of something. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Yes, the Atlantic is a bit busy right now, and the hubby is keeping a close watch on it too.
      Thanks for checking it out Prenin!
      Love and squishy hugs for you, my friend! xo

  123. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I could use something to kill the darned thing! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    These calls are supposed to be barred by my supplier ‘Talk Talk’, but they still keep coming through…

    Yeah I feel so angry, yet helpless when faced with such evil… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    The good news is that they have the guy that did it and her grandmother under arrest.

    Apparently the guy was the grandmother’s partner and the kids body was hidden in the loft…

    I managed a good sleep of about ten hours, so I am back watching the night pass, but it gives me more time to dream up new chapters! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The latest idea came from an article I read about planets being cast off from their stars and stars that are ejected from galaxies when they escape black holes.

    So I thought: What if somebody DELIBERATELY casts a planet free of its star and used it as a storehouse for weaponry and technology?

    That way only they would know where to find it should there be need of it.

    Clever huh? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve provisionally called the chapter Wanderer after a role play game I invented decades ago, but I may think of something better later.

    As I write it’s 6.29am and daylight is coming through the curtains… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  124. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Second comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah, the day was pretty good apart from our little darlings! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The kids round here are feral street kids who band together to terrorise the people around here, but at least the Police and Police Community Support Officers have been able to deal with them effectively… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah it’s now 6.41am and the sky is grey, so we’re expecting rain… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the hugs and best wishes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  125. First comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah it’s high in fibre which is good, and good for levitation effects! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah Doug has taken to slipping notes through my door again, but I’m ignoring him! ๐Ÿ™‚

    To be honest he’s in love with himself – thinks he’s God’s gift to man and woman alike even if he does have a face that looks like a bulldog chewing a wasp! LoL!!!

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  126. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Second comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yup: It’s the little wins that keep bringing me back!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Better some hope than none at all… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  127. Third comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah there is some good in there being no news… ๐Ÿ™‚

    I managed two chapters today, but the second was a page shorter than average! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  128. Fourth comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I’m getting there slowly, but it’s a painful process.

    I never realised how easy reading is so damned hard writing… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  129. Fifth comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hmmm… A pint of hot chocolate is something special! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Pity I had no marshmallows… ๐Ÿ˜›

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  130. Sixth comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah. The never ending now… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Maybe I’ll be accepted and get to publish my magnum opus. If not?

    Well, at least I tried… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  131. Seventh comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the writing is going steadily but slooooow!!! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s like when I was working: I’d forget meals working on software and work fifty two hour stints to meet stupid deadlines.

    At least these days I have the sense to do it a few chapters at a time! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mmmmm… Pizza!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Once this diet is over and I’m down to 200Lbs or less I’m going to have a take-out pizza delivery and pig out!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  132. Eighth comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah writing IS addictive – and it’s a pleasure because your mind is working at full speed! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I guess it’s a real rush, something I’ve missed for some years… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  133. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a jar full of coffee I have yet to open as I drink mostly tea, fruit juice and beer!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Yeah the freezer is now fully defrosted and full of weight watchers frozen ready meals which I have yet to dig into as I’m taking a break on the diet eating ham sandwiches with English mustard – lovely stuff!!! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    ‘Iceland’ is a frozen food store and the only one in the area to sell weight watchers meals at a discount.

    They also deliver my shopping and have a lovely staff who always make me feel welcome! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m glad you enjoy my sense of humour – I kind of went off Royal Mail when they closed most of the sub post offices leaving only the central post office and mail sorting facility.

    Thanks to email they are now charging a fortune for letters and parcels… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Anytime, my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Well, the coffee is there is you ever need it. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I knew you had recently filled that up with your dinners.
      I sort of thought is might be a store of some kind, because looking at the location of the big Iceland it just didn’t seem possible for you to be shopping over there. Thanks for clearing that up for me….Sound like a really nice store you found there.
      I do enjoy your humor. You usually have a bit of it in every post. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Post office’s are a rip off.
      I know…same here.

      Tonight is my WWE Friday Night Smackdown (wresteling).

      Love and Hugs xx

  134. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Poor Cassie – she’s such a tiny thing so I’m not surprised she gets scared! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Yeah the sub story is growing slowly, I only managed half a chapter today, but then I DID spend last night and this morning editing what I’d done so far! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you have a great day!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and huge hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Your thinking of Cici…she’s the tiny one. Cassie (my 2nd dog) is much bigger, about 8-9 lbs, and get very scared.
      Sound like you’re moving right along with the Emily chapter then. Keep up the good work, but most of all, have fun doing it.
      Hope you have a great day too, Prenin!
      Love and great big squishy hugs! xoxo

      • Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Oh, right! ๐Ÿ™‚

        She’s still a small dog for me – I’m more used to Rottweilers! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Poor thing though – I really feel for her!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        I’ve been watching Isaac for a few days now – looks like you’re going to see some very bad weather!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Hope everything is OK for you!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Love and squishy hugs!

        Prenin.

  135. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I’m having a relaxing time, but the writing has got me hooked! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had a great idea to finish my current chapter and missed church!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Still: Now I need a new idea to continue the story, so I’m going to chill out and listen to a few radio plays on the BBC iPlayer.

    I like the comedy ones, but they are doing Doctor Who readings read by Tom Baker who is a dude! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I changed mine a few times, but the one I wanted it wouldn’t let me use!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Yeah, with a face like mine I need to shave to improve my looks!!! LoL!!!

    Always glad to visit Mrs. ‘A’!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  136. Hi Debbie! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hurricane Isaac is in the news here and I’ve been watching it on the website.

    Hope you and his nibs are safe! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  137. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks as always for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m up to chapter 74 after a bit of a struggle for ideas over the past few days, but now the story is beginning to roll again!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the full bladder at silly o’clock isn’t fun, but the meds make me thirsty a lot of the time…

    I’m always glad to visit hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope Isaac stays well away from you – according to the news New Orleans is going to take a hit – lets hope the storm doesn’t overwhelm the defences as one Katrina is enough!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  138. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I just needed to rest my eyes.

    I’m using my reading glasses to work the PC, so I need to rest regularly…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  139. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes I’m doing well – two chapters today – and I’m doing my email before having a break! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had a forced break when we had a thunder storm, but no damage was done! ๐Ÿ™‚

    As soon as I’ve finished reading my email I’m going to go unwind listening to Tom Baker reading a Doctor Who story! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

      • Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Just read the article and it’s not a place I’d like to be right now!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Hope you and Mitch are OK – these storms seem to be causing a lot of grief, especially to New Orleans!

        Ironic that this is on the anniversary of Katrina… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

        • I’m not anywhere near New Orleans, but I certainly feel for those folks. So much suffering. The water is as high as the roof tops. I was just watching it on the new. Houses completely submerged in water…it’s terrible.
          I know, same time as Katrina. As if she came back for an encore under a different name.
          I’ll let you know if it creeps is ugly head up this way, but hopefully not.
          Love and hugs xx

  140. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I had a lot on yesterday and today I had to go get my medication, but got one of the regular Asian drivers who is a lovely bloke, but totally racist!!! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry you couldn’t sleep, but I guess you will survive! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have weird sleep patterns as you know, so I do understand how you feel… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I’m glad the storm appears to have missed you hun – last thing in the world I would want is to see you and his nibs harmed in ANY way! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve got writer’s block at the moment, so I’m just doing my emails – over 200 today!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    MMmmm… Fooooood!!! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m stuck on my diet, so the thought of fried potatoes and eggs is making me drool!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

    You have a great day too my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs to ya both! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

  141. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your first comment and it’s always good to hear from you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes it does need us to take a rest break every now and then! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I did two pages today and that’s with the writer’s block I had earlier! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Third comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks hun that means a lot to me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ironic that I got active discouragement from my father, yet all my friends are cheering me on! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Fourth comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I had a good Saturday! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the best wishes!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Yeah, some family members can be quite troublesome. But you have good friend who love you much…like me.
      Have a ball writing and resting in between.
      Love and squishy hugs for you too! xoxo

  142. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks as always for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah shopping went well! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m a lot safer these days as our local teens are being dragged kicking and screaming into training, or else no benefit payments! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the best wishes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s 2.44pm here on a cloudy and windy summers day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and huge hugs!

    Prenin.

  143. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah my day is half over and it’s 16’C and cloudy at the moment with a bit of a breeze as well as the occasional burst of sunlight.

    Some summer it has been… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Oh it is to dream! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have had some terrific dreams over the past few weeks, but keep forgetting them on waking! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Hope you have a lovely day my friend!

    Love and huge hugs!

    Prenin.

  144. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I guess you’re right hun, but it sure does feel frustrating when your ideas are not their sparking best! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    It was shopping day today and very sunny, so I’ve just had a wash as I was sweating a bit! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs to you too my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • I understand, Prenin. I don’t like it either when I’m not inspired…boring. But it will come back…promise.
      Ah, sweat…popular sport out here, lol…thank God for showers and wash cloths. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Glad you had a sunny day…we did too. Mitch went fishing but me and the dogs stayed here…I painted a bunch.
      Have a great night, my friend!
      Love and hugs to you always..xo

  145. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah all my food is bought and packed away – now I have plenty to eat, but had to throw three nectarines away as they were mouldy!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I have an idea for the next thread and I’m just figuring how to get there! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah he’s a nasty piece of work who hates white people, but he’s Asian and gets a lot of crap off his passengers, so I can’t blame him for a little payback… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Thanks. I had a great night’s sleep as I’ve been taking night nurse capsules.

    They work a treat and are none addictive, plus the box I bought had reached their use by date, so it was either that or throw them away…

    Love and squishy hugs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

  146. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Make that two skipped meals – I forgot breakfast too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah my muse came, I filled a five page chapter today, but now I have no idea what to write! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I’ll get there eventually… ๐Ÿ™‚

    We just had some heavy showers – I got caught in one on the way back from the Co-Op shop, so I was a little damp! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hoping for dry weather tomorrow, but it looks like it’ll rain…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • 2 meals…that’s even better!
      Not much fun getting rained on when you trying to get shopping done.
      You’ll get there…:-)
      Hope you don’t get much rain tomorrow.

      Love and hugs xoxo

  147. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I was sore for about three hours, then it eased.

    I have pain killers, but I don’t take them much as they are addictive…

    Yeah the writing is getting harder, but I’m managing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin

  148. Second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah. But on the plus side they’ve cancelled the hosepipe ban! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am a recycled teenager! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the old body is getting weary, but still lots of life in it yet… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  149. Third comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the silent calls are a pain. I am going to have to do something about them if they happen again!

    I’m supposed to have a block on calls which don’t use a number and come up ‘Unavail’, but it doesn’t seem to be working…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  150. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the congratulations – now all that has to happen is that it gets looked at for errors, edited and then the miracle of getting it published! ๐Ÿ™‚

    After that lots of people have to buy it and then maybe MAYBE I’ll make enough money on it for it to support me for a few years! ๐Ÿ™‚

    If it fails then no worries: Nothing changes… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  151. I hope you have plenty of goodies
    lined up for the Wrestling, you know
    just a few Wambo-Spambo Burgers
    a Triple Fudge Pancake, Chocozap
    Milkshake and some Cream Buns ๐Ÿ™‚

    That should keep you entertained ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hey I meant the goodies not those
    hunky wrestlers ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol

    Andro XXx

  152. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah you could have a point.

    All I know it that he’s one big bundle of evil and hatred who saw his children as his legitimate prey.

    He is a bully, a liar, a coward and a thief… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  153. Second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    No worries Debs!

    Love you too sweety!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Third comment!

    I go to bed, but the pills just make me sleep longer, not quicker! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Fourth comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah. THREE books! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Even if I don’t get published I managed it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve decided that if I can’t get a publisher I’ll put one up for free on Amazon and see if that attracts some attention! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have fond memories of collecting the cows eggs from the bottom of the farm hill and carrying them back to the the farm! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh what wonderful memories!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  154. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My you have been busy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I keep going from excitement to near panic as I think of what I’m doing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Fear of it all going wrong is paramount, but I can live with that! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  155. Hi Debs for the visit and comments! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I got to see the Nurse OK, but she needs to take fasting bloods so I’ve got an appointment on the 16th of next month.

    I HATE needles!!! LoL!!!

    I’m now waiting for a food delivery, but we have a Major Police incident on Baytree lane so the road has been closed off and ditto Mills Hill Road so the traffic is snarled up pretty bad.

    I have food in, so if they can’t make it I won’t starve, but the only place that is likely to have a problem is the shop on the corner of the two roads which is owned by a Rochdale Gangster who has a taste for under-age white girls.

    We’ll have to see what happens on the news…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • I hate needles too!
      Yes, once you give them blood, they just keep wanting more…lol

      Sound like a real mess around there at the moment…You stay out of harms way.
      I’m glad you still have food to tide you over.

      Love and hugs xo

      • Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Just to let you know that the Police removed to cordon about an hour after I left the last comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I have no idea what it was about, but we have an Asian owned shop within the cordon and the guy who runs it thinks himself to be a bit of a gangster… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        I now have a full fridge and freezer, so I’m OK for two more weeks! ๐Ÿ˜›

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

  156. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes it’s a bad area, but much improved since I moved in what feels like a lifetime ago! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah food-wiseI’m all set for the next two weeks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  157. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the best wishes – so far it’s just a bad cold, but I have to go to the Co-Op tomorrow for milk and my lottery tickets so I’m hoping for a break in the weather at 7am!

    I’m now down to 105Kg (don’t ask me for that in pounds!) and Nurse Mary was very pleased with me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My target weight is 98Kg. But I may have to lose more as my belly isn’t disappearing as fast as it should… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  158. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Second comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the news had video shot of it coming down and it was to the North of my home and low towards the horizon when I saw it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    At first I thought it might be an aircraft, but it acted differently to what a plane would do and was very bright! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The news said that experts thought it might be space junk burning up, but it was still quite a sight!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  159. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The fever broke about 3pm so I was kicking the covers off to cool down! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The weather is pretty erratic, but we seem to be missing the worst of it here – there are flood warnings in place all over the UK!!!

    As for leaving comments on your art, I enjoy looking at them my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks – I think I’ll have a nap later so I can be up for when mum and Hugh come for a visit – Hugh wouldn’t take no for an answer… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  160. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah, If I hit my target weight of 98Kg. I’ll be very happy as my personal health seems to improve with every pound I lose! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m glad you’re not hurting hun – it’s amazing what a few pounds can do to us… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  161. Hi Hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment as always! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah mum and Hugh’s visits are so rare that when they happen I get anxious! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    This was their last visit as Hugh no longer trusts himself to drive long distances after his stroke… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I know what you mean about family – I prefer to keep my distance because of our history…

    Thanks for the best wishes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    If I win I will be amazed, but such good luck is highly unlikely…

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  162. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes the storm is over and we had a showery day, but as I write it is raining again and down to 10.2’C so it looks like the weather is definitely getting colder!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Glad you have the sun sweety – we haven’t had much of a summer this year… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    You have a great weekend too my love! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Huge squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  163. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yup! At this rate I should be back to my original weight in about three years! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, we’re usually a decade behind the USA in most things! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’re getting heavy rain warnings for today, so I’m glad I’m staying home! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  164. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah it was good to get my shopping done, although I forgot my loyalty card! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I need to get my finances straight first – games are expensive! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lesson learned I guess! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Better a spring loaded scale than an electronic one which fails as soon as its warranty runs out…

    Love and squishy hugs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

  165. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes they were Bad Dreams to put it mildly and, no, I hadn’t had anything spicy for supper, just cereal… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I had more last day’s sleep which played on my fear of falling… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  166. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It was raining when I went to sleep and through the night, but this morning it is a bright, clear, sunny day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The sleep pattern is slipping again – I had a lot of worries, so sleep came slowly – but if I am up and awake for my blood tests on the 16th I’ll be happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry hun – it’s how I feel with my bad hips etc. – I’ll try to be positive! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  167. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I fixed the chapter, but it felt like I was killing my baby… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I guess I spoke too soon. This morning it’s raining heavily… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  168. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah shopping day was busy, but I lived! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We had a sunny day today, but it’s clouded over again.

    Lots of rain to the South and North, but we’re pretty dry here for once! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We have had the wettest summer in one hundred years, some places seeing a month’s rain in one day, so we had a LOT of flooding!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Thanks for the best wishes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope it gets sunny again soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  169. Hi hun!

    Thanks for the second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m drinking plenty of fruit juice, so I’m getting plenty of vitamin C! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  170. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Fourth comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah it’s just a bump in the road, just a little deflating! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I guess we’ll be in it to the end, but it’s a slow process and I have to learn to take the rough with the smooth – and I hate the thought of disappointing Red after she put so much faith in me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  171. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes things are advancing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Still lots to do which will take many months, but we’re getting there!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  172. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah taking the meds in the morning instead of at night means I’m awake and dozing by 5am so my sleep pattern isn’t great, but at least it isn’t rotating!

    Trouble is that once I take it I’m knackered for most of the day and don’t feel like doing anything!

    I’ve only just done my laundry and I still have to shave as I think I’ll go to church tomorrow/.

    It’s 6pm here and we’ve had a few rain showers as well as a chilling breeze, so it’ll be cold tonight.

    My phone is still down: I talked to a robot and it’ll be fixed in 48 hours, so all my calls are routed through to my mobile phone until it’s fixed.

    Pity I had to blow ยฃ15 on a corded phone to make sure it isn’t my normal ones fault.

    Thank God I have a working mobile with a reasonably working battery! ๐Ÿ™‚

  173. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, I got my line back and the redirect cancelled, but I got a phone call from a lady in Moston to say I’ve still got control of her phone line! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Hopefully it’s now fixed, but ‘Talk Talk’ do have a competence problem and a habit of blaming the customer…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  174. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the Vampyre isn’t much fun, but the nurse is a lovely woman! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s getting cold here at night – it was 18’C in my bedroom this morning so I turned on the heating and returned to bed until it go warmer! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The trouble with the meds is that I feel very cold unless it is 24’C in my flat!

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  175. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes I managed the shopping OK and there were no beggars importuning for cash – they’re all heroin addicts – so I was able to get there without having to dodge them! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  176. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, depression happens occasionally.

    Fortunately I know the best cure is to just curl up on the couch listening to music and letting the world go hang! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I lack a shower, so all I can do is drink fruit juice and relax until the bad feelings go away! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  177. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just to let you know the heart problem has eased and should be gone by the end of today! ๐Ÿ™‚

    As for the farts?

    I had to sleep with the window open! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the utility companies are charging more and more while I’m trying to get by with less and less…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  178. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah snow is on its way – it’s already falling in the North East of Scotland, but will have turned to rain by now! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sounds like you had a good summer my friend.

    I’ve been watching the Hurricane and it looks like you could be in for some bad weather at some point… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  179. Hope Sandy stays well away hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment – that wailing sound is REALLY weird!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs always!

    Prenin.

    • She could get a lot farther away from us and it wouldn’t hurt my feeling…we’re getting pounded over here. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
      Love and hugs xx

      • It’s making the Big News over here, even showing the view from the ISS!!!

        Stay safe my friend – Sandy looks to be one BIG mother!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

        • It is…it’s huge, and the water is starting to come over our deck…it’s four feet about the ground.
          Say a prayer for me, my friend.
          Love and hugs xx

  180. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    No worries about the missed posts – you had life to deal with! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, Doug is a problem and I have to keep him at arms length, but he can’t seem to realise that I want no part of him and expects me to carry him! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Yes, the vote went badly, less than 18% of people voted, but we got the guy I voted for so I’m happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You are a good friend too hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs always! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

    • Your welcome….but it’s my pleasure to visit you, my friend. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Aw…thanks Ian…you’re so understanding. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I know, it’s his drink that keep him stuck on stupid. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I’m glad you got the one you voted for…that makes me happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

      When it was election time for a president here earlier this month, we had to vote vote for the better of two evils. Neither one was a good choice. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      We’re good to each other, as friend ought to be….I love ya! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Love and squishy hugs! xo ๐Ÿ™‚

  181. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The toothache eased once I cleaned my teeth thank goodness! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, I’ll be visiting the dentist on the 23rd when I’ll get the filling fixed.

    It’s an old plastic one that has needed replacing for a couple of years, but my dentist of the time was reluctant to do it.

    Now we have no choice… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Hope you have a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs always!

    Prenin.

  182. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks as always for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes it was good to be in church and see my friends! ๐Ÿ™‚

    If it hadn’t been for my sleep pattern I could have had dinner with Faluki, but had to beg off.

    She held the service and I love her to death! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah we’re feeling the cold here too, but most of the problems are in Scotland where it is cold, wet and they have had several floods affecting hundreds of homes… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Mind you if I ever get flooded the whole country would be in trouble because I live one floor up in a block of flats on top of a hill! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  183. Hi Hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah the trip was uneventful apart from the darned rain!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    According to the news we had a months rain in just one day, so there are incredible scenes of flooding across the country…

    Yeah Doug makes me laugh – he claims to have no money and isn’t eating, yet can lend money to Tony… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  184. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comments! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I did pretty well all told! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I got to the pharmacy and got my meds and yesterday I saw the dentist and got my tooth fixed, so it’s all good! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The arson attack was horrific!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    We seem to have a fire bug around who targets barns as this isn’t the first such incident.

    I just hope they get caught, but the odds are against it… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  185. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah it was good to finally get it done with no need for a drill or painkillers! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Dentists Oath:

    To take the tooth, the whole tooth and nothing but the tooth! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs sweetheart! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

  186. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I’m sure the Devil understood every word – the little stinker! LoL!!!

    Doug will get no more off me until he pays me back.

    Hard to believe he did me so much harm, yet expects me to support him… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I guess I’m turning the other cheek, but it isn’t easy.

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  187. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah it was one heck of a wakeup call and then some! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Church is fun – lots of lovely folks – but I have to put aside money for transport and the offering, although it isn’t much!

    It feels so strange not to be reliant on my old friends who all sold me out.

    At least the people in church like me for me and not for what they can con me out of…

    Love and hugs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

  188. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I reported it to the repairs people – it’s just a case of actually getting Chris to let them in so they can fix it.

    He’s a weird character with many disreputable friends… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Hope you have a great week hun!

    The rain has stopped for now, but there’s more on the way and there’s no place left for the water to go…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Your welcome, Prenin!…My pleasure to visit you. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Sounds like Chris has got something to hide if he don’t want to let the repair man in. ๐Ÿ˜‰ …but I’m just speculating.
      I hope you have a great week too…you need it!
      Every time is stops raining out there is a blessing to be counted…Hope it just stops for long enough for things to dry out a bit.

      Love and hugs! xxx

  189. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks as always for the visit and the comment!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    If I win I won’t be celebrating alone and that’s a promise!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The rain has stopped for now: We had a dry day today and tomorrow will also be dry, but there’s more rain forecast – something we DON’T need!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Hope you have a great weekend my friend!

    Love and hugs to you and Mitch! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Prenin.

  190. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks as always for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s good to have quiet days as opposed to the alternative! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  191. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, I got the pills and back to safety OK – things are quieter around here since the local teen gangsters switched to dealing drugs and getting treatment for addiction.

    Sad, but a fact of life… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  192. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yep: Good news for Bro Keith and Step bro Terence! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I won’t see the baby as we live too far away, but it’s still good news!

    Roll on April!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Second comment!

    Glad you enjoy it hun – Fog is sooo mysterious!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs always!

    Prenin.

  193. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We have a cool 6.9’C at the moment with occasional sunshine so not too bad, but they are threatening worse weather over the rest of the week!

    It wouldn’t be so bad if we were used to snow, but we’re not set up for really bad weather and the country grinds to a halt if we get more than a couple of inches of the white stuff… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Oh well: I guess we’ll have to see what comes next! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m still feeling ill, but the fever has reduced and so has the headache…

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  194. Thanks for the best wishes hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I managed to eat breakfast without bringing it back up so I guess it’s just a bit of a cold. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I still have a low-level headache and fever with a chesty cough so I’m keeping warm and away from draughts.

    I need to get some photographs taken for my book, but everyone I tried hasn’t answered.

    I can ask Lillian, but I’ll leave that until tomorrow.

    The weather is going to be cold overnight so I’m going to have a lot of problems getting up in the morning… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  195. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah we have seriously cold nights and bad weather as right now we have sleet hammering the windows.

    We managed to get four shots taken, but they’re not the best – I just hope Red has photo shop so she can clean them up! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I met Bonnie and Leo there and they are coming along amazingly fast!

    Bonnie was a little shy, but she soon got used to me and Leo is an Alpha in the making – VERY much a show-off! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dean came to pick him up for boxing practice and Richard was with him – minus his front teeth!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hard to believe they have come so far along in just a year…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  196. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m with you on slowing down! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This year I haven’t even put my tree up – I’ll do it later – and I’m having trouble staying warm, but I guess that’s just old age! LoL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you have a great weekend my friend!

    Love ya!

    Prenin.

  197. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comments! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, Doug has threatened suicide MANY times, but this was the first suicide letter he has written to me.

    It was sheer good luck for him that I went to check on him first and didn’t call the emergency services! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    If he actually DOES attempt suicide – he has lost his benefits and has only two weeks food and electricity credit left – then he has said he’ll do it away from me instead of cutting his throat in front of me as he has threatened so often in the past.

    The problem is that he’s an alcoholic and, like so many, he’s devious and manipulative to the extreme.

    All I can do is keep my fingers crossed and await the inevitable…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  198. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The plasterer didn’t show so now I’m waiting for a phone call to tell me when they can come and fix my ceiling! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    It’s 4.3’C here and windy, so sometimes I can hear the breeze whistle through the cracks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Christmas seems so close to me.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  199. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is a level of incompetence I’m used to I’m afraid. ๐Ÿ™„

    Right now I’m waiting for the supervisor to call back, but so far nothing.

    I’m off to race in a moment, but I’ll leave the doors open so I can hear the phone as it’s in my bedroom.

    The weather has gone grim and cloudy again, so it looks like we’re in for another cold night…

  200. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just ordered Pat’s present and saved ยฃ26.55 on the item so I am feeling quite happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Add to that I also saved ยฃ6.01 on postage and you can see why I LOVE Internet shopping!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve also drooled over a new camera so I can get some decent photography done and my food shopping has arrived so things are coming along nicely! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The weather here is cold, minus one point eight degrees Centigrade, so the roads are going to freeze and then we have heavy rain forecast for tomorrow so I’m staying home! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Now I’m off for a pint of orange juice and maybe some toast – I bought a proper toasting loaf and plenty of light margarine so I can indulge while protecting my waistline! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Oh it is such a JOY to look forward to Christmas instead of worrying if it’s going to be yet another set-up…

    Love and squishy hugs!

    Prenin.

  201. Hi Debbykins!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah we had minus 2’C last night until about 1am, then it got warmer and the rain came, but the ground was so cold up north that it froze on contact and a fire engine slid on the black ice and crushed a car against a tree!!!

    No serious casualties, thank God!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Right now it is raining and about 7’C so we’re not expecting anything but rain over the weekend.

    We had a major meteor shower last night, but the street lights ruined any chance of seeing it.

    Oh well! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you have a great weekend!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  202. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    People all seem to dream differently.

    In my dreams everything fits – even if I’m twelve feet tall standing on a ridge a thousand feet high that I step off and reach ground level in one stride! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mind you, you have a splendid imagination so maybe one compensates for the other… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, Crimbo is almost here and I’m looking forward to Christmas day with my adopted family.

    I may have been left unable to father children, but at least I have a family I love! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Huge hugs my friend and Merry Christmas!!!

    Prenin.

  203. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I can’t understand why somebody would go from killing their mother to murdering 20 kids and six teachers in a killing spree that ended when he took his own life!

    Life is precious and it is how we are remembered that is what matters.

    America must change, or we are going to keep on seeing this senseless slaughter repeated again and again…

    Merry Christmas my sweet friend!

    Love and hugs always!

    Prenin

  204. Hi Debs!

    You are right of course, but it won’t be for long: Doug needs to pay missing rent money or lose his home and has no income because his benefits have been stopped, so it’s just a case of waiting for the inevitable.

    He has gone from threatening suicide to frantic assurances that he has no intention of taking his own life.

    Today he went to the doctor to get a sick note so he gets some income and tried to get me to store his food so he doesn’t need to buy electricity to keep his freezer running.

    Basically he’s screwed and there’s no chance of him getting out of trouble because he’s dug his own grave.

    All I have to do is wait…

    Love and hugs!

  205. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Went to the loo about an hour ago and everything is back to normal, but my insides are still a little tender!

    Aussie Emu was right: It was gastroenteritis.

    You were right about Doug.

    He turned up about fifteen minutes ago threatening suicide and drunk, then begged another ยฃ1.50 off me, the price of a bottle of cider, before saying he needed to leave some stuff at my place for his mate Matt for when he kills himself.

    I doubt if he’ll do it, I’ve heard this nonsense repeatedly over the past year or so and he’s still breathing.

    All I can do is ignore him and wait for him to run out of options.

    I seem to be the only person left who he can turn to, but he still doesn’t seem to realise that I owe him no favours!

    Lord help us…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  206. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah I agree – To heck with him! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    He keeps using suicide threats to get attention, but he’s out of options and he’ll have no money for a month until his sick pay arrives so God knows what he’s going to do to survive.

    I am sooo sick of his bullshit and aggression…

    Happy Christmas my friend and May you have Many More!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  207. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m having a nice cup of tea at 11.27pm on Christmas Eve with a long night ahead! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cheers my friend and God Bless!

    Prenin.

  208. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your comments! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the Christmas wishes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s worse than you’d think: Doug sent a suicide note to the DHSS so he can’t get Job Seekers Allowance any more and was unable to register his sick note so he has tobacco and no papers, food with no means to cook it.

    Andy showed up about 12.45am to deliver a card and have a cup of tea and he’s recovering from the highly infectious Norovirus.

    What a fine gift – Not!!! LoL!!!

    I’m not in the ‘at risk’ group so I didn’t get a shot as medicine is strictly rationed these days.

    The NHS is being forced to make economies by the government to save money so they can reduce the deficit.

    As a result Hospitals are overstretched and we’re dreading any serious illnesses as we’ll have no place to go.

    Good job I’m reasonably healthy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you have a great day – I’ll be heading for bed at lunch time, once I’ve delivered Pat’s gift and my cards.

    The weather here is cold, wet and horrible… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

  209. Hey have you clicked from your comment links at Wombania? Strangely it took me to a different site, someone called Adam ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Hmm… Very fishy that me thinks… However the side bar link brought me straight here so I have no idea what the other one is… Go and have a look when you get the chance ๐Ÿ™‚ Hey I hope that you are enjoying a nice evening Deb ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Andro xxx

    • I saw that. I must have put in the url to be adamart, instead of adamsart…my bad. I mentioned it to Peter, but can’t remember which ones i did that too.
      Thanks for the heads up, Andro. I’ll have to be more careful. ๐Ÿ™‚
      I’ve been pooped all day, I think between Christmas and all the snow fall that it just zapped my energy.
      Hope your have a great evening! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Hugs, my dear friend!

  210. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes I’ve become a little OCD about washing my hands! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Christmas was pretty quiet because I was sleeping funny hours, but I was missed by my adoptive family which was nice! ๐Ÿ™‚

    So far I have had ยฃ40 which will get me to church on Sunday as well as buy a few luxury food items and a Jack Daniel’s hip flask with a small bottle of JD! ๐Ÿ˜›

    It is sooo good to be loved! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  211. Hi Debs!

    Second comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mmmm…. Coffee… ๐Ÿ˜›

    I love the taste, but not the heartburn! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m now in and safe from the weather for another two weeks – we’re expecting more heavy rain today and tomorrow with more expected.

    This has been the wettest year on record with floods all over England and they totally ruined Christmas for an awful lot of folks.

    The road and rail networks have been crippled in many places with some tracks chewed up by the flood waters…

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  212. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the visit and comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Doug’s saga is coming to a close.

    He has no rent money, no benefits for a month and a ยฃ45 crisis loan to live on until his one month’s sick pay comes through.

    Eviction is Certain, so I just have to make sure he doesn’t try moving in with me!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    It amazes me that he continues to drink when he knows he will soon have nothing and continues his self destructive path while expecting me to bail him out every time things get worse!

    I’ve tried talking to him, but all he does is fantasise about killing himself and try to take me on a guilt trip for not supporting him – when he’s not talking about breaking the law to get himself jailed!!!

    He seems to think I have forgotten how he sold me out and harassed me in his efforts to prove I am Gay – one BIG fail – but I have a looong memory… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  213. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just caught your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I may have spoken too soon: He’s posted a note through my door: He’s out of money again and needs to talk to the crisis loan people again, so I have to wake him at 8am.

    No way am I giving him more money, but he’s pretty good at begging these days.

    The self pity when he’s done it all to himself is astonishing… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I have good thick cotton socks which do the job and a pair of slippers so I’m well protected! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This New Year has already come up with a surprise: I am now a published author!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The book can be found at: http://www.redmundpro.com.

    Just click on the picture of somebody holding a book to go to the book store! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love you too my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have more in my life because of you and so many other web friends and I bless you for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs always!

    Prenin.

    • I read and replied to your second comment before I read this one, so I deleted it.
      Rock bottom it the best thing in the world to happen to Doug. Giving in to money begging is the worst thing you could do for him, so just let this play out so the bottom comes soon…Really, Ian, it’s the best thing for him.

      Now, on with someone I know who is having a great start to the new year!…You! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ And a great big congratulation to you, my dear friend!. I knew you could do this! I had faith in you the whole time! ๐Ÿ™‚
      I just had a quick peek over there and saw your book up for sale…Woo who! another big congrats. I don’t have a kindle or anything like that, just my laptop. If I were to buy it would it read on my computer?

      Ian, you have made my life so much better being the wonderful friend you are, and have been. You’ve been so loyal to me. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Love and great big squishy hugs! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I read the second comment on email, so I know what you mean! ๐Ÿ™‚

        I know what you mean about Doug’s situation.

        Doug is a control freak and right now his only control he has is by threatening suicide to me and trying to cheat the system that CANNOT be cheated! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        He’s hit rock bottom and has started to dig…

        Thanks for the faith hun – now all it has to do is sell!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        The book is for sale as a paperback (I think!) and as an ereader.

        I have no idea if it would read on your computer, but ask Red as she’ll know having set it up! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Of course I’m Loyal!!!

        How else could I be with such a good person as you??? ๐Ÿ™‚

        Love and squishy hugs right back atcha!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Prenin.

      • Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Just checked and both ‘Jabberweil Hunt’ and ‘Songs of Angels’ have been published, but as ebooks for the Kindle and epub which I assume you can read on your PC.

        As soon as it comes out as paperback I’m going to buy ten copies to give to my friends! ๐Ÿ™‚

        It’s all good news!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Love and hugs always!

        Prenin.

  214. Hi hun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m getting confused answering messages, so apologies for repeating this by email!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    YOUR face got distorted?!!

    I was turning green!!! LoL!!!

    He hasn’t asked for any more money yet, but the DHSS have only allowed him ยฃ30 this time to live on for a week!

    He’s got a gas card from somewhere (Don’t ask…) and now has heating for a short while, so he’s using less electricity, but he’s also a smoker as well as a drinker so the money won’t last and he’s running out of food so he’s going to have to make some hard choices.

    He’s threatening to wreck the Job Centre windows so he can get arrested and jailed so he has food and a roof over his head.

    Will he do it?

    Doubtful.

    Like Aussie Emu said: He won’t risk losing his alcohol supply…

    I’m hoping I get a decent neighbour next time – Doug has been a nightmare!

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

    • Yeah, thinking of a how bad he must have smelled contorted my face (curled nose and lip…lol)

      If he does something to go to jail he won’t be able to drink.
      Yes, alcohol is his first priority.

      They would have to sterilized and fumigate his apartment before they could re-rent it.

      Love and hugs!

  215. Hi Debs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the congratulations – all I need to do now is sell them!!! LoL!!!

    Yeah Doug must carve his own path – at least he’s not threatening suicide any more… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

  216. Heya, Deb!

    Big hug!
