Well, we are not actually going too far over Easter, but , hopefully, soon after we,or should I, say 'I'(my husband is from Lincolnshire. But, we are hoping, or at least I am, hoping to be going up to 'God's Own County, were hoping to be up in the YORKSHIRE DALES. This is where my family originate from, many moons ago.. My Gran was born up in Dent and it is from my lovely Gran I inherited Parkinsons. So hopefully we shall be 'Homeward Bound!'
Hi Ali J.
Hope you're starting to feel better now.Noticed you hadn't been on the forum for some time. We're not away for Easter, though may have a day trip somewhere weather permitting; or/and may visit family.Whatever you do, hope you enjoy.
Enjoy your trip to the Dales. Dent is a lovely little place.
Hi ElleMac, My Grandmother was born in Dent and a lot of my family ,on my dad's side were Dales people. They moved to the Keighley area looking for work. I have several friends in Dent , I shall definataly be going to see a friend of mine who has MS. I love it up there.

I'm going to get away for some sunshine next week
Sorry your not well again ali, I'm sure your hubby will make Easter as special as he can for you!
Dearest Ali J. Church? Isn't that for Christmas?
It is confusing, why do we have Christmas THEN Easter, it should be t'other way round. Or is that a theological question "What came first, the Messiah or the Egg?"?
Anyhoo, its chocolate all round. This all started many years ago when baggie Thatcher got the economy all messed up when we joined the EU. The government of the day was trying its damnedest to make us suffer, Norman Tebbit wanted to make us cycle everywhere and they made the Chuckle Brothers, but the EU decided Brussels had a big choccie mountain it needed getting rid. So they shrank all the wagon wheels. Forcing the unsuspecting public to buy overpriced Belgian Chocolate eggs (they are the ones that are left on the shelf when all the buttons and smarties have gone).
Anyway cut a long story short. Just as the Messiah suffered everyone has to suffer, but because suffering is against our 'uman rights these days, we have to binge on chocolate til were mildly uncomfortable.
(The real pain being the cost).
So this year I'm just going to mold a few fun size mars bars together to form the shape of an oeuf and scoff that. (Fun size, what that's the size of a proper mars bar? Thanks for the heads up Sooty).
So everyone remember, eat safe, plenty of pepto abismal in the cupboards.
A few choccie facts
Aero, Maltesers & Wispas are ALL -ve calories (it takes more energy to expel the trapped gasses within, than can be derived from the chocolate)
No-one has ever had a heart attack while binging on chocolate - shortly after maybe, cos your more liable to asphyxiate on the chocolate and peg it from that.
Chocolate lowers blood pressure, thins the blood.
Just when ,I was doing so well with my diet
Hope you are feeling better Allix
Waiting for operation then hopfully i be lot more beter
gill hope you have lovley holiday over easter bring us back some sun shine
.easter is celebrated in church i will be atteding mine with my partner and hopfully get dibetic chocie this year so i can actually eat it
this year goin so fast april soon then expesive month for me got 4 peoplesbirthdays including me own
I had a cream egg on Friday. In fact I'be been scoffing all through lent.
So, I'm going to church tomorrow cos I think it's my fault the North Koreans are kicking off.
Only kidding that debacle was started by someone in London Olympics sending the wrong flag jpegs to Hamden.
It's happening again, Steve wright in the afternoon, weekday drive time.
It's sunday morning. How far forward is the clock supposed to go?
Which bin does Easter egg boxes go in? Cardboard- blue bin, plastic outer shell - green bin, foil wrapping- ????
It's just too hard.
Between Steve wright, clocks, egg wrappings there is a risk of toxoplasmosis (see irresponsible dog owners) from rolling eggs down grassy knolls.
I'm fling back to bed 'til Halloween cozzies are in the shops.
So that'll be Tuesday.
Fangs for the memories
