I'm Still Here!

 Once again I'm just popping in to say hi.  I'm still pretty swamped with family stuff right now, two of my family members are going through serious surgery.  One had their operation last week and the surgery went well but we won't know how successful it was for enother couple of weeks.  The next one is this Friday and it's a big one! I daren't say too much about it but as you can imagine we are all hoping and praying that it will go well.

I hope you are all doing well, I will get back to this little space of mine once things calm down a little.

In the meantime here is a little light relief in the form of a video that I made with photos I took from our first u3a gardening trip of the year to Parcevall House & Gardens set in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.


  1. Nice to hear from you but sorry to hear you're experiencing family illness at the moment. Sending my best wishes and hopes that things go well. We often pass by Parcevall Hall when we're visiting the Dales but we've never been, it looks beautiful with with Yorkshire Dales as its backdrop.

    1. Thank you Jo, Parcevall Hall is well worth a visit but I think it will be lovely later in the summer when the gardens are in bloom.

  2. I have everything crossed for your relatives going through a traumatic time right now. I hope it works out well for them both. I love your little video of Parcevall Hall and have to admit that I've never heard of it. Keep strong for your family xxx

  3. Thank you Babs, I'm trying to but I'm just wishing it was all over, will let you know how they get on. Xxx
