Is it really December?

Hello my little gigglers. I can't believe it is December already!

This is the start of my 3rd month of hospital living. It is truly sucking my will to live! LOL

I have been home again for the weekend while Granny Mac stays with Jack in the hospital. It's been a hard week so Holly and I took off to Inverness for some retail therapy. We took the train so that I didn't have the worry of getting parked.

We managed to get so many bargains including an outfit for Holly's High School dance, complete with shoes, which are so so gorgeous! I am mega jealous of them, so much so that I may have to borrow them sometime. I saw this necklace and I just had to have it cos it was just perfect.

how cool is this?

By the time we got off the train at Elgin, the snow was really coming down so I was glad to get home. I think by then I deserved a big glass of wine or two.

In the end, I had the whole bottle! Yummy.  It went down so so well. We also watched a dvd that Holly had bought called Chalet Girl which was actually really funny and is now Holly's feel good movie of the moment.

And god knows we need something that makes us feel good at the moment. I am trying to keep my spirits up and be strong but it is so damn hard when I just want to take Jack home but I can't.

I still try to read your blogs when I can so although I don't comment, know that I am lurking!

Thankfully I have been pretty organised and have done my Christmas shopping, just have to wrap things and write out my cards. As for decorating the house, well that will have to wait.

Last weekend when I was home, we saw the Christmas lights being switched on and then Holly, Emma and I went to the pub. There we were chatted up by a young guy and his friend who made me laugh with his chat up lines. The best one was when he sat down next to me and said "you must be tired girl" and I replied that "no. I'm too bad". He said "but you must be tired, cos you've been running through my head all day!!!"

Pretty corny but hilarious all the same.

Hope all is well in your world my little gigglers.


  1. Well, it always feels good for a guy to say something cute like that! You got it girl! I love the necklace. I'm glad your shopping trip was so successful. Holly must miss you so and Jack so much, I'm sorry. And I'm sorry you and Jack are going through such terribly hard times right now. I've been thinking of you.

  2. So glad you are able to spend some quality time with Holly. I love how you devote some time to just her. You are amazing. I'm sure you are exhausted and yet you finished Christmas shopping? You never stop surprising me! I hope better days are just around the corner. Until then, just one day at a time! Sending lots of hugs my friend!

  3. That was a great chat up line by that young man, LyndyLou!! And how cool was that blogging necklace?! I am so glad that you had such a good laugh and some retail therapy with |Holly. You need that, just to keep you sane my friend. I saw that film Chalet Girl at the cinema, and thought it was really funny. A good chick flick. I also watched it with my granddaughter, and she loved it! I continue to pray for your gorgeous Jack, and I so hope that he will be well enough to come home soon. Take care and, as Barb said, just take it one day at a time. That's all you can do at the moment. Hugs.

  4. I am soooo impressed that you got the Christmas Shopping done, I still have not started here and I'd say it'll be done on-line as I cannot face any serious shopping. And I too have been watching DVDs with my dd, it's a great way to escape. How is Jack? I'd love to know and have been thinking of you xx

  5. So, so nice to see you Lyndy and to see that you & Holly had a wonderful & relaxing weekend. [Only a bottle? C'mon. giggle]

    I bet Jack is home by Christmas & you will be able to rest easier. We are all here thinking of you guys & sending good thoughts & prayers.

    Miss you! Hugs & much love my friend.

  6. Hi! Dearest LyndyLou,
    I really AM happy to hear you had great time with Holly shopping.
    Yes, that is a Beautiful Necklace♡♡♡ And "I also Love To Blog."
    Oh, how cute the man's reply was. Thank God for your lovely time.
    Marvelous to hear from you, and admire your forward-looking attitude and spirit!!!
    Blessing to you from Japan my friend, xoxo Orchid*

  7. Hahaha...what a chat up line! That, the FAB necklace, funny DVD and bottle of wine must have really lifted your spirits:-) Good!

  8. Too funny- some guys and their pick- up lines. Please continue to take care of yourself through this difficult time. I'm continuing to pray for sweet Jack.

  9. Love the necklace, very nice!

    So glad that Jack continues to grow stronger. Hope he can come home soon.

    How great that you and Holly were able to enjoy some down time together. I'm sure you both really needed it.
