Visit from Cazz

Hi Everybody, Last Weekend I had a lovely visit from My Daughter Carol, she arrived friday Evening, we stayed up chatting all night,and Carol showing me a few new games to play on the computer, getting to bed approx 4.30am. how time fly's when your having fun. Of course we had a sleep in.
Saturday off to the local Chicken shop were Carol bought heaps of fresh chicken, Kievs, Kebabs, Schnitzels, stir fry, etc. to restock her freezer.Then to Donna's to put it in her freezer of course it didnt all fit as Donna had hers well stocked., then back to try mine but of course mines well stocked also, . so most of the chicken ended up in my next door neighbours freezer.
With all the chicken packed away, it was off to Gwens for our saturday girls get together were Gwens friend and two of my daughters joined us.
we had a great afternoon which turned into evening with few drinks consumed fun was had by all..Sunday Carol gave me breakfast in bed and waited on me all day, then Carol went around to spend a couple of hours with Donna and her family before returning home early evening...

Sounds like a wonderful time had by all....I had to laugh at the chicken/freezer escapades, that's typical, isn't it?

Happy Wednesday [golly, I just now thought to myself, your Wednesday is nearly over]

Well it looks like your computer is better than ever, Jeanette! What sort of games did Carol show you? If you like jigsaw puzzles, there is a fabulous online one (freebie). You don't have to download it to your PC - you just select a picture and it is broken up into bits on your screen, and you move the bits with your mouse to put it all back together. Neat!

Your girls are so pretty, just like their mom! I hope your daughter's chicken is now in her own freezer...or maybe her neighbor's too. :)

Hi Jeanette. Glad you had a nice weekend. Sometimes when you're having fun, it's easy to forget the time. I'm sure you had loads of fun that evening with your daughter, Carol.

Glad you spent quality with people close to you. Thanks for sharing these nice photos. I also enjoyed reading the lovely and inspiring quotes.
