WOYWW Beside the Seaside

Well I'm still marooned here in Brighton helping my DD1 by looking after my two lovely grandees, 6 months and 3 years, whilst she looks after her DH who has been in and out of hospital. Every cloud has a silver lining and whilst I'm shattered, I've been the lucky one here as I really have managed to spend quality time with ALL my grandees and family but my DH has been left looking after his little self up North.
My DD2  has been staying in nearby Lewes, visiting from Germany with her DH and my gorgeous 1 year old grandee, so we spent a sunny yesterday at the beach... fish and chips, carousel, sun and sand (well pebbles.. it is Brighton) just one or two key members of the family conspicuously absent and well missed!
WOYWW is nothing..zilch.. nada, nowt... infact .no work desk to show but I must thank everyone who sent good wishes over last week and I hope to get back to you ASAP when I return.
This computer leaves a lot to be desired and it has taken me ages to type this so have fun and I  will be spying but I'm sorry that I won't be able to comment this week. Hope I get my own back next week!!!

Thinking of you Jo - hope things start to improve with Ian. Enjoy the grandees whilst you can. Will ring Dave today to see what he is up to.

For some reason, I figured you wouldn't be posting today. Leave it to you, though. I'm really late to the party today, so you may miss my rocking horse (grin) Happy WOYWW.

There are worse places to be stranded blog-less than Brighton! Hope you get home soon, which will mean things are going better.

Glad you had a lovely time with the family yesterday Jo :-) Hope DH is fine but with the freezer well-stocked and control of the remote I'm sure he's happy :-)

Sorry to see you're still down South but at least you're getting loads of cuddles from the grandees. I'm sure Dave will be OK although I know you would want to be with him. Hope SiL gets better soon and you can hurry up home.
Take care, x

Thanks so much for sending me the Mad House image, Jo (I thought I'd emailed "ta", but I've checked my sent box and I hadn't) - I will think of something excellent to do with it!! Sorry to read of the family health problems, I hope all recover well and quickly - and in the meantime, have fun with the little uns!

Julie :o)

Ah Jo, a small prayer of thanks goes up that you were in a position to help out, scarey enough time for your D without having to worry about her babies. Am so glad that you're enjoying the time, your desk will be patiently waiting!

Spending quality time with your family is more important than leaving comments :)
