Our GJ's Poem....

A fellow blogger Yvonne who became a friend writes poetry and has had books published. Last year Yvonne wrote a poem for our GJ. When we lost our boy Yvonne asked did we want the poem taking out. We didn't we wanted it leaving in. This week Yvonne sent me a copy of her new book and we loved the poem and the book. Of course there were tears and smiles. I have tried to display it here for you to see.


                             I made it bigger and hope you can read it ..
                    Yvonne has a blog Here I know she would like if you said if you liked her poem ..
                                         I love it..

The room is finished....What do you think...

You will remember I have been telling you about doing our room up. e have re done it all and changed the colour on walls and doors. The unit that is built in were the TV is was a very dark wood and varnished. The wall unit was a dark wood and very large. We painted the unit a light colour the same as the doors and the walls a pale oatmeal colour. The wall unit was given to the charity shop. We changed the carpet again to a paler colour. All these things lifted the room and made it seem much lighter. The last piece of the puzzle was thee suite which was ordered at the beginning of January. It is a Lazboy and it was delivered today. It took 15 weeks because it came from USA where it was made. The last piece of the puzzle completed the transformation and I love it....

                

                                            The new units are much smaller and lighter..
                                      The unit with the TV on is now lighter and I believe prettier and the carpet again adding to the lighter effect..
                                          Barrie trying the recliner out..

         Do you agree it looks better. Hope you like the look.
Take care everyone.

My hoodie...

A friend has started a new business printing and stitching. Just look at my GJ digitised and on a hoodie. I love it.


  I have just finished a round of nights and I am ready for a few days off now. Last night was really trying as the fog was pea soup thick making it difficult to get to help people. I was glad to see my bed this morning. Have a good weekend everyone.  Hugs Carol x

A day in my life.....

A while ago a gentleman from publicity came out to accompany me on a work day.My work can be very varied and one day I can be out all day or night depending on shift and be helping people who have fallen or in need of some care. Another I can be hopping from place to place helping in other ways or sorting out a alarm to be installed or mended or supplying other equipment or sensors. Here is a little look at this springs news letter were I am featured.

                            Hope you enjoyed a little look at me at work.. Hugs to all  Carol x
