Janet and John......

I won a giveaway on Janet's blog.  Have to say it was an easy one for me, as I have been to the place many times; Blackpool Tower, although I don't recall how many times I have actually been in the tower itself?  Janet is raising funds and awareness for MND - Motor Neurone Disease, as her brother Andrew has Progressive Bulbar Palsy a type of Lou Gehrig's Disease.  So if you have time could you pop by her blog and say hello and wish her well with her goals........


Now Janet's brother is called John.  I have never met him, but I adore his blog and his way of life.  I would love to live in the same village as him, as the going's on with his menagerie of animals always makes for  good read!!  They have just adopted the most gorgeous Bulldog, which I think would make a lovely friend for our Molly.  Dh is not allowing me to get a friend for Molly.....(I am pouting at the moment!)   So if you have time pop by John's blog also to say hello.

Did you watch Dancing With the Stars?  If Jennifer doesn't win there is something very, very wrong...........

Helped dh with the basement on Monday when he got home from work.  Confirmed that I DO NOT LIKE insulation or drywall dust, both are icky, icky, icky!!  However have realized if you clean up as you go along, it makes for a better working environment!!!  Shame dh doesn't get it!  Still can't complain as he does work really hard.

Thank you for that Gill- we really appreciate it ! John is my twin brother and we have always shared our love of animals !
Motor neurone disease is a terrible devastating illness-we are trying really hard to raise the publics awareness so the MNDA is better supported, with better funding- maybe one day they will find a cure,

Congratulations on your win. Will you be going there?
Motor Neurone disease is a horrible illness. Be good if a cure could be found for it.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
Blessings, Star

I shall pop over to Janet and John's blogs as soon as I've had dinner. Watched our version of the dancing... Strictly Come Dancing. Like yours, there is something seriously wrong. The clown keeps getting through while decent dancers are removed.

There are some dolls for your to see on tomorrow's blog... I think you'll like them.

Have a good day.

Hi Gill,
I'll hop over to John's blog. It sounds like my cup of tea. I bet you've put up pictures of your cute dog, but more please? I love dog pictures. We are dogless right now. I fear it may remain that way, so I love to look at other peoples' dogs and hear about them. Stay warm! It's very cold here, too!

Hi Gill, I follow John's blog daily. He is such a hoot and a good guy all at the same time!

I don't have a tv so I haven't been watching any Dancing shows! It's fine with me if you mention the advent calendar. I think it would be fun to put other little things in it too. Like a joke a day or something.
