Hi all Hope you all had a a great christmas and that you were all as painfree as possible. After many years spending Christmas at home this year we went away, after the train jouney from Hell (lots of engineering works, delayed broken down trains and missing connecting trains) we finally arrived at our destination Bodelwyddan Castle Hotel North Wales just in time for evening dinner. well next morning in daylight what can i say great scenery massive grounds comfy hotel with good food and entertainment (it sure made up for all the travel problems) we had a great christmas my pain levels were good ( due no doubt to my recent weight loss) then it was made even better on boxing day after finding out that our grandaughter became engaged on christmas day. so at the moment i am quite a happy bunny. :lol:
Stay positive always👍xx

    Sounded about perfect Carol

    the engagement being the icing on the cake :D

    I am so pleased for them and you all too.

    Our 'best' Christmases were spent in a lodge in Aberfeldy when the kids were younger. No mobile phone connections and 'tray sledging' laughing so much :D

    What a lovely way to spend Christmas. Congratulations to your daughter too. There must be something in the air -I know of 4 couples who got engaged on Christmas or Boxing day.

    Thank you all for your replies
    Tony the journey home was almost as bad on way home jam packed train and trying to get myself and rollator down the isle past people suitcases and bags that were in the aisle to get to our reserved seats.
    Elizabeth yes the grandaughters engagement was the icing on the cake especiallly as she has a baby daughter of who is 11 months old who's father she split up from a while ago who has very little interest in baby at all and who couldn't even be bothered to buy his daughter a christmas present. now she has a fiance who loves her and baby to bits and will do anything for them. she has so much thrown at her in the last few months she really deserves some happiness.
    Toni it was perfect in every way (minus the travel problems of course)
    Stay positive always👍xx
