Tribute to my friend..............

Barbara Anne and I met through another blog 10 years ago. We share a love of quilting and we had both had nursing experience, me in the UK, she in the US.

Through the 10 years we have shared many things, her parents in law were living next door when I first started corresponding with her, sadly they have both died, although Barbara was not a great fan of her FIL the whole family worshiped AMIL, she was a really lovely lady.

Barbara has several medical problems, but she never fails to comment on my blog most days, I must admit I do get concerned if I do not see a comment for a couple of days, but its usually because she has not been feeling too good.

You may remember the quilt I won first prize with at the local show 2 years ago, quite a lot of the fabric came from Barbara which is why I called it my friendship quilt. My other quilting friend Kathy made the applique top border, that quilt is so precious to me.

Thank you Barbara from your friendship over the last 10 years, and may it go on for another 10. You are a very special lady. I doubt we will ever meet in the flesh which is a great shame.

I ended up sleeping on the day bed last night. DB had the wriggles and was driving me slowly round the bend, so out I got, It really is a comfortable bed and does not take long to warm up.

DB was at the meeting last night, the plans for the 25 new houses has gone ahead and we have to find land for another 25 by 2020. The builders have to put a new road in, the village roads are so narrow, it will be difficult to get large loads into the site on Canal Lane. The local school has a very good reputation and has the capacity to take another 50 children. At the moment children are brought in from the surrounding villages. Several of the top class children got places at Grantham Grammar School last year.

Monday clean has been done, kitchen floor washed, we changed the duvet cover on our bed, I had a feeling it was the wrong cover, when I measured it I was right, so off it came, into the washer and it's on the line. A clean cover put on. I also made soup for 3 days lunches, spag bol sauce for tomorrow night supper and have a loaf on. Crackered now.

Today is the mobile library day, so new books. Shopping to do, the freezers are very empty. I am also hoping to go and see my quilting friend on Friday. I have an appointment at the Drs for the results of my blood test late Friday afternoon, so we can call on the way back. I need to talk to him about my BP, the last 2 days I have not gone for a rest after lunch, spent the time reading on the settee and have been fine.

OH getting supper tonight, eggs, wedges and beans, should be interesting!!!
