    BP day 5/6ish
    Dear Grandy 👩‍❤️‍👩 Mr Croixy and Paul ☺

    So nice seeing you all thank you so much for your time support and care 🤗 It really means a lot 💗

    Croixy you hit the nail on the head.
    I thought our friendship would slow and become different cause beautiful Grandy hi lovely talking to you as well ☺ has more responsibility now and taking up more of her time.
    I need to trust my dear friends word as she's not let me down before 💜
    I thought in a way she/you was leaving me darlin 🤗
    Cried quite a lot. All good now ☺
    Realised I was in BP causing extra ouch & beasty yabber!

    Backs. Unbelievable pain isn't it.
    I've been through deep hell countless times over 35ish yrs.
    Agony & excrutiating pain I'm no stranger to. It's cruel.
    I'm lucky usually no pain between the many outs.
    Slowly regaining confidence again to get out of bed sit down shower etc.
    This out was around 5 mths 😐 my weights shocking making it worse tho in the past at perfect weight same wicked pain as the yrs before.
    Sorry you suffer so much too it makes life very difficult doesn't it.

    Thank you for your kind support Croixy man it goes in deep.

    Pauly good man 🤗 always lovely seeing you too ☺ I very much appreciate your support as well.

    Dear Grandy 🤗 Ahh thank you sweetyheart for your always beautiful friendship and uplifting caring supportive posts.

    Sorry darlin I've been a bit over the shop and at times don't feel like writing but always want time with you hun. Please know it's just me. It's never ever that I don't want to talk to you lovey. I love and cherish our time so much. Truth. It's kinda like the beasty stop for doing things sometimes.

    Thank you for the porridge and coffee what a treat 😄 and the Rose is gorgeous.. oh I forgot we have a garden on the 645th floor 💼. Ah ha so that's why you leave it out in the rain... to water our garden. You're so gorgeous Grandy 🤗

    Thanks for what you said lovey 💗

    Yip completely get it with smokes hun. Geez how many times I've given up. Now I have to get the bloody weight off again grr. Thanks for your support on that as well. And you're doing well keeping them down as in not heavy. Well done beautiful ☺

    It was really nice you asking how I was thank you darlin. Been a bit here and everywhere but going well. It's so far the easiest BP with hards but getting through. Geez can't believe slept most of today. Needed it.

    Hope you're all going well lovely people 🤗

    Love you Grandy heaps always 👩‍❤️‍👩💜🗯🕊🌹🦋✨

    Hello Beautiful Deebi👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩..

    I sort of knew that you were thinking that way...How can I ever leave you dearest bbff...I’ve always got time for you...and always will...I was before supporting a few newbies and felt good in myself and thought when I was contacted..I would go ahead with it...I was really afraid I had hurt you..which I did by the sounds of your tears... I’m sorry...please believe I am still me..your sss..and you ground me so much when I need it..

    I’m sorry about your back honey..I wish I had a Magic wand to send the pain away from you..I don’t think weight has much to do with your pain..it’s coming from a damaged spine..I think..Same with my hips..no matter if I was skinny or fat the damage is still their and will hurt just the same..my thoughts only...Please bbff..each time you see your gp...get him to check it for you..My Dr is sending me for a bone scan..to see if it’s bone related pain I’m feeling..

    I understand about Beasty stopping us from writing here even if we want to....But once you ignore Beasty and do the opposite...It feels good😚...We have to try as hard as we can to do the opposite of what’s is telling us...Everytime we do that it’s a win for us....

    So pleased that this BP episode was easier to manage with the downs..your winning honey...You will be victorious...Your strong in want Deebi..that’s a huge help for you..Well done dearest friend..

    Im pleased you liked the porridge..I love porridge in the colder weather..and it keeps me full for a long time..I buy the microwave packets..ready in 90 sec...so good no fussing around...

    I hope tomorrow is a better at for you then today was..

    Sleep good precious friend...love you Deebi..💜🌹..🧸💜..

    👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩Grandy...🕊🌱.

    Dear DB~

    I've been a Community Champion for a fair number of years and do find there is a difference. New people coming on the Forum tend to treat Champs as if they were specially trained or something, not just ordinary humans who need just as much help as before they became champs.

    It does not work the other way, Champs remain friends with their friends and continue to give and receive support and care.

    You are slipping - you only used 22 emoji in that post!

    Hi good people reading and posting 😊
    Me too Croixy man 😂 @ 22 emojis. haha I had to check so counted too 😄
    Thanks matey I really appreciate you pointing out things about my/our beautiful Grandy which helped me adjust & understand the sitch.
    You helped me see things more clearly ☺ onya champ...Oh oh 😁got a little 🎁 😜 for you.. 👑..It's a wisdom/appreciation crown...only a select amount of highly respected and deeply cared about people get these limited edition hand made delicate concrete delights.

    You need to be very protective of this.
    I'm afraid there comes quite a responsibility having a wisdom crown.

    See they're highly sought after. The extremely valuable rare jewels have been tirelessly sought out from years of painstakingly hard work extracting them from gum ball machines all over Australia.

    Now to give it the best possible care you must every night before bed polish it with the sandpaper cloth provided...cloth on..cloth off ...and chant ..."I love that Grandy & Deebi use multiple emojis. I'll continue being cute throwing the odd one out there 🌈 because I know I'll never be able to stop the overuse of them no matter how gentle funny and tactful my complaints are. I adore the girls as they do me so I tolerate it" 😉🤗

    It's because of the CC's highly class posts giving the ultimate in wisdom compassion & kindness. I'd take that as a compliment Croixy but yes absolutely hear what you're saying.

    You're one that I care very much about. I wonder how you're going Mr. Thanks for being you 🤗

    Hey there Monks 🐒 lovely you swinging by hun. Nice hearing you follow us. I'll see you soon at yours ☺🐇 Gifting you a tasty choccy 🍌

    Hey my bbff thank you for your beautiful comments too. It's really good hearing I ground you. We help eachother so much it's a great loving friendship I treasure. Ditto wiyip so so much 🤗😢🙁

    Dear love I meant to add it's quite ok me crying. Please don't feel bad. I hardly cry now which 😆 isn't intended to make you feel worse 😄 It's purely out of love a bit selfish & fear. It caught me mid sensitive of BP (later) was good to release. I hadn't thought it through. Since I did also with you and Mr Croixy man helping.

    Darling I'm so glad you like the bubbles ☺😚 It's fun doing them but so good if someone gets happies and comfort or a giggle isn't it 🤗

    Thank you for your gorgeous posts I really love you deeply you da 💣 honeyheart.

    Nigh nite lovelies thank you all

    👩‍❤️‍👩💜

    Hi wonderful DB & a wave to all,

    I just wanted to say hello and send some love to you here.

    I felt for you as I read about your fears. Although it sounds like you and Grandy are talking about it & figuring things out. Such a heartfelt & lovely conversation reflects your deep friendship.

    I think it’s beautiful how you keep that line of communication open between the 2 of you...

    Sending love and hope (& of course Super soul hugs).

    Peppystar xoxo

    Hello Beautiful Deebi, Magic, Peppy ..and everyone..🤗..

    I know you said it’s okay you crying..I don’t like you crying lovely friend, I want you to be happy every day..with a huge smile on you face.....like your gorgeous avatar....

    I am very thankful to you Mr. Croix..for your very valuable words to Deebi...I have been down a little thinking I done wrong to you Deebi.....and I started feeling guilty and selfish...I had a feeling would think that I would leave you...but theirs no way I would ever leave you Deebi, Friends just don’t do that...They stayed superglued 🤝, Through good and bad....for always...unconditional love is unbreakable...💜🌹🦋..

    How are you going, bbff...With your back, neck and foot?...I wish so much I knew the answer for immediate pain relief..Please Deebi, Try hard to not lift anything heavy, or strain your back until..well hopefully the professionals will give you a mri on that section of your back...Usually if you ask them, they’ll give you a referral..because if something major is wrong they want to find it then help to heal you...Please if you can remember to ask your Dr. at your next appointment..it might get things moving faster for you..

    I picked you some marshmallows off our tree..here you go honey..their yummy in milo..or just straight of out tree...

    Gazzillion x love for you..and bear hugs 🧸🤗..dearest bbff..

    Hello gentle Peppy...Magic...mmmm Just live chocolate so much...Never tire of it either...marshmallow for you as well..our tree is overloaded with them..

    my care, love and hugs everyone..🦋💜🤗.

    Dearest Aunty Deebsta, Aunty Grandz and all fans and friends of the bbffs 😃

    I love listening to the bbffs, i really do. Your convos are gorgeous, and i usually get to have a little laugh somewhere along the way, which is a bonus!

    I had the best chuckle at Aunty Deeb's presentation to Sir Croix (aka Mr Croixy good man) ... i hope he cloths on, cloths off, with the beautiful sandpaper on his precious crown of concrete. Truly special. Not to mention the mantra he must chant. Oh yeah, please take a video Sir Croix and share with us all.

    Uuuuum, also, i actually do believe that there were 25 emojis in the infamous "22 emoji post". ? I may be wrong, but i think I'm right. If anyone could confirm?

    Love you guys, keep being your awesome beautiful selves. Xoxoxo

    Gorgeous Grandy 👩‍❤️‍👩 Tweety 🐣 and readers 😊

    Thank you beautifuls for your lovely posts. So good seeing youse
    You both reach my heart and give light.

    Oh dear Grandz please please hear this.
    • There's absolutely nothing at all selfish about becoming a CC in fact absolute opposite lovely one.
    • You didn't do anything at all wrong by me and I know you never would. Truth.
    • It was my insecurities only that were unfounded
    • In BP my emotions were more sensitive and scrambled egg head 🙃
    • None of the above was your fault.

    Darlin friend you're doing such a great thing for so many people including here and for yourself.
    I'm so happy for you honestly, now that I know you're not going to wander off.
    Please don't feel down truth you did absolutely nothing wrong I pwomish sthweetyheart 🤗

    Thanks oh so happy to say my backs slowly improving. Still regaining confidence. It's not 100% yet but no pain thank God! Pure torture when it does.
    Foot same dammit!

    Great news the MRI end of next mth will be doing the other 2 areas. Dont think they do them to what they want here. Happies.

    Also had neurologist telehealth this not so good the muscle damage in my arms from the syrinx yikes.

    Love you every day Grandy which deepens daily. You're so beautiful darlinheart. 👩‍❤️‍👩💜🗯🍫😚

    Hey there our beautiful tweety so good seeing you 😀
    Oh I love being your Aunty sweety tweety there's something about some people and you're one darling.

    Absolutely love hearing you got a chuckle 😄 and that you enjoy reading our friendship. So nice huns.

    Listen darlz if you get a bit frightened from our gorgeous little kittens that Grandy gave me that Betty found all you have to do is jump on their little heads they haven't quite figured out how to handle that yet then I can sit you on my shoulder and you can tell me all about how you are darling tweets.

    Love you both very much. PubAok both and peeps reading.

    Hello Beautiful Deebi👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩..

    Thank you so much lovely bbff...I believe in your words honey....😁..

    It is so good hearing about you getting an MRI scan at the end of next month done on the parts of your back that are sore....Not long to go now honey.....I wish they don’t find anything to major...I know that you are in good hands with them and hopefully what ever is causing you so much pain can be mended for you...My wish for you is to be pain free..

    If your back is the same as my hips....when it’s time for the MRI..your back will behaving...😂..

    I hope tomorrow is a good day for you, full of sunshine outside and full of starlight in your heart/soul.....Its been sprinkling here now for 2 days...It’s been nice but I’m missing my morning dose of sunwarmth...

    Deep Love to you bbff....pubaok..yadimh..wiwwyip ..lysvm....SSS..Bpaly... 💭 always...🤝👀👂👃..💜🧸🤗.

    Hi Birdy, Peppy...Love you both as well..and hope so much that you’re both doing okay....Here’s a bag 👜 full of marshmallows...freshly picked 😂...

    Grandy..👭🌹🦋🕊🌱

    Hello Deebi,

    Umm...... Your emoji's ........ Mr Croixy counted 22..... Birdy counted 25..... I counted 20..... ?????

    Me thinks perhaps.... you are tip-toeing 🐘in when no-one is looking 👀 & hiding in Grandy's 💼 whenever someone appears..... adding & subtracting emojis..... just to keep us all busy counting them.... so you can liberate any 🍫 you may find poking out of our pockets or handbags whilst our attention is elsewhere.

    Little do you know.... Grandy lass is also lurking in her 💼 & whenever you pop out to change emoji's..... she swaps your stash of purloined 🍫 with clever copies... the real ones being hidden in a 🌈 by a 🦄.

    Hugs

    Paws

    Hello Beautiful Deebi 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩..Paws..and all..

    Paws thank you..you gave me a laugh..

    I remember not that long ago Deebi, decided to eat my chocolate scented wax candle...😂 it was so funny...I don’t think I can trick her again...so I swapped the chocolate 🍫 with a carob bar..

    Deebi...I feel your grrrr...I’ve done that many times..Takes ages to write in notes..then poof it disappears when copy & pasting..The little computer gremlins are lightening fast, to quick for our eyes to see while they hungrily gobble it up....

    Its okay lovely bbff..no rush..to reply..I hope your day was a good day...we had a beautiful sunshiny day...Always the way isn’t it... When we have to go to places which is mostly appointments in an office...it’s sunny and warm... a perfect day to sit outside and enjoy it...I hope your day was sunny and you were able to sit, stand or lay outside and have a beautiful relaxing sun bath...

    Haha...you have to run fast to catch me...run run run as fast as you can...you can’t catch me I’m the Grandy gran...😂.

    I hope you had a good day dearest Deebi...and tomorrow will be an even better day...

    Look after you..Please Deebi, Paws and everyone...

    Universal love bbff....💜🧸🤗..with bear hugs..

    my care, love and hugs to everyone....🦋💜🤗..

    Lovely peeps ☺

    Ok let's try again. Spending so long on a post then losing yes to gremlins hun grr

    Gorgeous bbff 👩‍❤️‍👩 & dear Pawsy 🐾 thank you both for your lovely posts 🤗 that's to share 😄 love the mouth on that emoji.

    Grandz I'm glad you know I'm speaking truth only. Sorry that you were down 😚
    Thanks hun. They'll telehealth me after MRI good. Save time & $ travel.

    ? Triggers re Cancer.

    Very sad. Besty I've spoken about oftens partner is riddled with bloody cancer. Just heard today to what extent. Very bad.

    I can see he's putting on a good front for besty.
    I don't think the poor girls absorbed it yet.
    There's an element of shock that protects us.
    God I dread what they/she have ahead 😭😓

    Love him too. When we get quiet time one on one he talks more. I'll try and give him the chance when I can.
    So sad. I doubt we'll have him for much longer. He knows it too.

    It's a very aggressive but different type my beautiful late love had which also was very aggressive.

    It hits home hard knowing what's ahead for them and to be seeing her go through what I did with my love and of course it's not about me but still bites hard.

    It's a bloody mongrel disease!
    Grandy thank you for asking how I am beautiful.
    Tbh I'm very sad about it 😓 I need to digest it too I guess.

    Otherwise so happy with Mr 😍 he's such a precious lovely darling man.

    Was a nice visit today we all sat in the sun laughed and talked in batches about it all. Mr 😍 got to know them more and is slowly meeting my friends we saw a very good one who drives buses hadn't seen her for an age so did a quicky catch up she was working. We'll catch up later.

    Thank you for dropping by honey (loved hearing that) and for such a beautiful post.

    Otherwise dunno Grandy underneath there's something not depression as such 🤔
    I'll try and explain in a BP update tomoz or soon after.

    Grandy love you so deeply dearest friend pubAok 👩‍❤️‍👩💜🤗 God there's times I really want to hug you darl and talk to you.
    I hope this hasn't upset you with memories.

    Pawsy you too that was an awesome post. Got a lot of laughs thank you for those.
    So good to see you. Truth I also wonder how you're going. I do hope you and your big boy woofa are good 🤗
    Very little hope of me giving up my 🍫 that I'm sure Peppy said even tho in her sleep that I could have.

    You're such a nice caring easy person to get along with. Lovely having you to call a friend too 🤗🗯🍫🤝💗🐅

    Hello Beautiful Deebi👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩..

    Whatcha up to?....

    I tell you what I’m doing?...Nah....oh okay then..

    I am sitting on my front veranda now...I just got back from driving Betty into town for a few things..(her car is broken)..

    Its another perfect winter’s day..you know how you can sit in the sun for hours, feel the warmth being soaked up by your skin but not feel overly hot...

    The clouds are a few...over the mountains, white fluffy with a tinge of grey, they are slowly floating across the vivid blue sky, My 2 furs are having a sun bath near my gate, under a crepe myrtle tree which has no leaves atm...In the distance I can hear a bike that’s having fun somewhere in the paddock as a couple of dogs are talking to each other in the next street..

    Im listening to the songs of the birds singing beautifully as they are flying around, and getting some yummy little worms to eat...Ruby is joining in with her song...and a few birds are landing on the bird bath having a refreshing bath, the hopping to the bird feeder and enjoying some tid bits I put in their..

    The old gum tree’s leaves are gently moving with the soft breeze that’s blowing, and my wind chimes are making a delicate tingling sound as well...I am enjoying a glass of V8 hot and Spicy vegetable juice with some ice cubes added...

    I picture you sitting next to as you discover the beauty of this great universe we live in...listening to mother nature’s wonderful orchestra...We are chatting and laughing, as we cross the road to feed the cows, they come to us and eat the fresh grass we have for them....and do you know what....not a sign of Beasty to be heard....

    Thats what I’m doing today precious friend..I am pleased that you joined me....

    Love to you dearest friend...💜🧸🤗🌹..pubaok....

    Here for you always...

    👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩Grandy..

    Hiya gorgeous bbff 👩‍❤️‍👩 and everyone ☺

    What a beautiful feel good visit. It really is so lovely seeing you. I'm so glad we're so close 🤗 Gee I felt every bit of that it really was great honeyheart.

    Wow even Mr 😍 Deebi slept later and me a bit longer. Can't seem to get enough but then when we're out and about I don't miss it.

    We've walked a bit just shopoing etc but at times a bit of walking.

    My back complains through the back of thighs hope it's not the syrinx but eventually it settles so hoping not.

    It's caught 3 times today! Ouch but not severe like before. Dam it!

    Just had a new stove top put in it's lovely. Pretty flash it's similar to induction but not.
    Phooey heats up near instantly.

    I did some littles of housework which was good. Swept carpet too, scared to vacuum again yet with back being naughty and Mr beautiful can't cause of his back too. All good. It'll happen when it does.

    Mr beautiful went down the Rd and got some bits yums mainly oopsy 🙄🍫

    We're watching charmed love it even though untold repeats we record a lot of things.
    We're happy watching TV.

    Sweetyheart tomoz I'm doing a baked lunch. Pork shoulder crunchy par boiled roast spuds peas (yuk baby ones not too bad) and I'm right into the easyness of the frozen veg you zap. Oh and the darling man loves brusell sprouts urghh sometimes I have 1 little one. I'm hoping you lovelies would like to join us and stay o/night as long as you like darl.
    The furs need to play with eachother and see their Aunty Grandz 😚

    Awesome veranda time it's so nice isn't it. That was a breath of fresh air your post huns thank you 😊🤗

    I had cool breeze on my face in bed again Grandz. Immediately thought of you. So refreshing. There's something about it makes you feel alive and vital doesn't it.

    It was as is usually sunny here but seems to have dulled slightly just lately but still light. I don't like dull or being in a dark room it's gloomy makes me feel depressed. Quite a few people like it that way.

    Ok my sweety.
    Oh I started in notes a BP update. Not finished yet.

    Hope your day continues as well as it sounds so good and beasty free is the best isn't it.

    Always love you dear Grandy Floss precious friend. PubAok yadimh lysvm sss bbff.
    sometimes I don't understand huns. but always awyip Beautiful,

    🗯 never stop so often daily sweety love. Take good care darl & everyone. You're lovely people 🤗☺

    👩‍❤️‍👩💜🗯🍫👫😍🤝💗

    Hey Beautiful Deebi🤗..and all..

    Im pleased you enjoyed my day with me yesterday..it’s nice to imagine my friend/s sitting with me...

    Sorry about your back, Most other parts of our body can heal...the neck / back area is so hard and delicate for the specialists to mend..I hope so much that they can work out a way to stop your horrible pain.,☺️..

    Thank you...I would love to come for lunch today..I’ll bring some strawberries and whipped cream and chocolate dip...if that’s okay....Brussel sprouts are yummy..keep them whole and fry softly with crushed garlic and oil..I love them raw, boiled, fried, baked..anyway...little cabbages..I will bring my furs with me..they will have fun with their cousins..

    Todays another nice day outside..unfortunately I have a headache 🤕 and find sitting in the sun doesn’t help it much...Not migraine just an annoying dull boom boom 🥁....I haven’t had 🍫 for a while..maybe withdrawal..😂

    Betty’s son didn’t come to fix her car...I will have the pleasure of driving her to town when she needs to go..Yesterday late morning I took her in..,We bought kfc special $5.00 meal and found a quiet spot in the park and enjoyed ourselves eating lunch...

    I like that you went shopping even walking around the shop when shopping is good exercise...

    I have my bedroom window open just enough to feel the cool air on my face..It helps to feel something nice on our face to take away the constant chattering of Beasty..strange how [IT]..makes an appearance at night..😂..

    I hope today was good for you honey and you had some happy times..

    Love you Auntie Deebi..💜🧸🤗...many times Daily I think of what you’re up to..🌹..pubaok....🤝👀.

    Kind thoughts with caring hugs everyone..🌹🦋🤗.

    👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩Grandy🦋🕊🌱.

    Hello Deebi,

    I agree with you lass... brussel sprouts = urghh. 😂 You are very sweet cooking them for Mr Deebi.

    Roast pork is very yummo.... I roasted some pork belly rashers last night for tea & had them with home made satay sauce. Woofa was not impressed that I didn't share.

    Really hoping your mri will give the drs some idea of what they can do to help all your hurts. It's good to hear you were able to walk around the shops without too much ouch. But it's not good you're finding your back catching so much.

    Hugs to you both

    Paws

    Hello Beautiful Deebi👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩..

    How are you dearest bbff..

    Another carbuncle, that’s not good Deebi..you’re very brave squeezing them, that would hurt big time...Please be careful that you don’t infect it more then it is...

    Until your physical health picks up some..maybe on occasions you might like to go and say hello to your sport buddies and cheer them on..I think it would make your sport buddies so excited and happy to see their Auntie Deebi...and I’m sure seeing their happy faces..you will so happy as well..

    So happy you adore your sweet gentle partner Mr.Deebi...that warms my heart...You were meant to meet and join your hands and hearts in friendship and love..You know that Mr.Deebi isn’t the only one who loves you...I do as well over the universe and back..💜🧸🤗..beautiful bbff..yadimh and 💭...

    What a day today has been....Dark clouds, whistling and freezing winds, rain...Perfect weather for us to go for a swim and walk on the beach.😂💨🌪🌨🌊..rugged up of course...😁.

    Fingers crossed with the mri scan...I hope they find a way that they can fix it for you so no more pain...

    I took Betty to the shops today... 🥶..So she could pay her bills, get some shopping etc..,She suggested as it lunchtime now..we should go to the club for their lunch specials...Not wanting to let her down I sad okay..We got a quiet table and we both orders chicken chow mien..it was yummy...I’m pleased I went...

    Have you done anything you like to do..today or yesterday..I would love to hear how you’re getting on beautiful bbff...

    Paws, I’ve heard of Pork belly..does it have lots of crackling on it..,mmmmm my favourite part..When I cook a roast pork..silly me I sample the crackling then before I realise it...oops it’s all gone and I’m not hungry anymore😂..

    I hope you are both feeling well...and keeping warm and safe...Love to you both..

    My love, care and hugs everyone..

    👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩Grandy..🌜💜👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩💜🌛
