It's been a while...

I can't believe my last entry was all about Christmas and the New Year celebrations! Sheesh!
Already Easter has come and gone and here I am only just getting my act in gear.
I needed the break from my journal as it was becoming less of a pleasure, because of Blogger's different ways and missing AOL, that it was easier not to post in the end. I didn't think I would miss AOL but I own up...I did. There was also the downside from the side effects from the pill which I take to keep my breast cancer from reappearing. It gave me mood swings, amongst other things, so I have had to ride the crest of those and slide down the troughs whilst hanging onto my britches. Lol!
Anyway..I know it's been a while but I have been hopping into your journals even though I have not taken the time to post here.

Spring is definitely here although our weather is very changable. I can't complain. When I woke up on my birthday, which was last Monday, the sky was sheer blue with not a cloud to spoil its purity. As soon as I opened my curtains I thanked God for it. A big smile sat on my face all day. We had had rain for almost a week prior to then.
I want to thank my friends for my lovely birthday cards, flowers and plants which kept coming all day long. You know who you are so catch a cuddly duddly from me to you.
I have some birthday pictures but can't find the adaptor which helps me to download them onto the computer. When I do I will pop them on here for posterity.
Meanwhile the ones above of my grandchildren were take on a walk up to High Dam at Easter time. This is a small tarn up in the fells behind Lake Windermere. It's so peacefull there.

Anyway..I have broken my long spell away and hope to keep up to date a bit more regularly from now on.

Carpe Diem!

Jeanie xx

Happy Birthday Jeanne and I am glad to see you post again. I am glad the weather was wonderful for your special day and it does lighten the heart after a long winter. Hope your chemo med isn't still causing all the mood swings. How terrible to experience. Love the pics.
