That beach looks wonderful and well done on the walk to get there!

Re hubby presents..... I can remember a few too which were not impressive but have had some lovely ones over the years too. He left me in a jewellers once whilst he went shopping for an iPad for himself. BIG mistake ;-) ......

Happy Anniversary!
Sorry....I'm a bit late in catching up. Forty Eight years of wedded bliss is a wonderful accomplishment these days.
Here's to many more :cheers:

I love this group coming through recovery right now. So many great people, and funny to boot.
You guys all move so quickly communicating back and forth that there's a lot to read through on each thread. It's entertaining to say the least.

Your sandals are very pretty! I'll bet you're excited to get a fresh pedi and wear them.
The beach photo is beautiful and looks so inviting. Must be nice living so close.
You just passed five weeks post op. and your recovery seems to be coming along very well. :yay:
I hope your weekend is sunny and bright! :SUNsmile:

@Hoppy Nanny this forum cheered me up when I was going through some less-than-stellar times.

When hubby got back from buying his shiny new iPad I had three rings lined up and asked him which he liked the best. Luckily he chose my favourite! It was a lovely birthday present. This extravagance Does not happen every year but great when it does.

Happy weekend to all Hippies :)

How lovely @Surrey Girl
Good job you didn’t ask for all three!
I did get a nice ring for our 45th Wedding Anniversary (sapphire) but sadly I have hand/feet psoriasis and can’t wear them now!
Yes, this site is invaluable... so cathartic to be able to share with such beautiful people .
Hope your weekend is good... despite the windy weather!!

Feeling a bit mean now just sneering at getting an umbrella for an anniversary...but after 40+ years I just point mine in the direction of my Amazon wishlist. And he just gets everything on it, so I keep it short. Fortunately I trained the children and their surprises are always entertaining and thoughtful. Hope their wives/girlfriends appreciate my stalwart efforts benefitting us all.

Good idea @bickypeg
I shall follow your lead with the
Amazon list .. fab idea.. although I’d probably have to order it myself... he’s not mean.. just unaware.. he says to our girls.. we don’t need anything!
Yes, my girls are on my wavelength thank goodness.
Hope you are doing well and have a great weekend xx[emoji3590][emoji3590]

Had a bit of a painful weekend.. had groin pain in my 1st THR side....frustrating but think Ive probably put too much pressure on it after 2nd THR
Used a hot water bottle & doing some stretches... seems to be helping...however, weather is pants so taking it easy...

I agree, @Hoppy Nanny … your entire body is still re-aligning and it's just a signal to slow down a bit. I'm sure it will pass quickly!
