A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

 

If all goes to plan Maureen will be having the first of her Hip Replacement operations today and coming home on Thursday. You will realise, of course, that for a few weeks I will be very busy looking after her, and all the other things that she normally looks after, as well as my own stuff, until she is fully mobile again. I have posted images for quite a few weeks to come and will endeavour to at least look at all your images and comments every day, but please bear with me if I am unable to find the time to comment quite as much as I normally do or reply to all your comments to me. Hopefully things will soon be back to normal, and that of course includes Maureen.

 

WORDSWORTH HOUSE 1/5

Wordsworth House is a Georgian townhouse situated in Cockermouth, a small town just to the North-West of the Lake District, and is in the ownership of the National Trust. It was built in the mid-18th century. William Wordsworth was born in the house in 1770 which is a Grade I listed building. In November 2009, Cumbria was hit by flooding. Wordsworth House was one of many historic houses in the region to be affected by the floods, but was relatively lucky in that National Trust volunteers were able to move many of the historical artifacts to the dry floors of the house.

All good wishes to Maureen for her op, hoping she will be mobile again soon. And to you, Brian - I know from experience you will be very busy when Maureen first comes home
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl. A bit more busy than I usually am I suspect smile

I'm glad it's happening today instead of two weeks from now, Brian. Let's get this done and over with as soon as possible. Hang in there and give our best wishes to Maureen.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. Her surgeon, the other day, was already talking about doing the other hip shortly after her 6 week check-up, better to get it all over in one big go I suppose than wait till later next year.

I wish Maureen every success with her operation. She will then be able to have you running around like never before Brian. Be prepared to lose weight.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad. I could do with losing some weight.

Well let us hope all goes well and Maureen is back to being fighting fit in no time
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, I hope so too.
With all good wishes to you both, hope you have a good cook book to hand Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin. I will confess to not being a cook, but we won't starve smile

You take care of Maureen and yourself. Please say HI to her and all the best wishes. I am glad the surgery is now and and not two weeks from now.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. Her surgeon, the other day, was already talking about doing the other hip shortly after her 6 week check-up, better to get it all over in one big go I suppose than wait till later next year.

Oh, I visited Wordsworth house where he was born, too- and the lovely garden! We spoke with 'his' servants and a nurse - the living exhibition there is very interesting.

My best, best wishes to Maureen - some years ago I had my first hip replacement (and no pains more thanks to that operation I can only recommend!) - I was about 11 days in the hospital and three weeks Reha in my home town afterwards - she should be going on very, very slowly - and use the crutches for some time - at home I even used a rollator to transport things ...
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, I'm glad you enjoyed the house, we also spoke to some of the people dressed up. I think Maureen should be out on Thursday all being well, our NHS doesn't keep people in very long these days unless it is really necessary.
My best wishes to Maureen Bill, this will make a big difference to her when she recovers.
Brian Walbey: That's what people tell her Sally although she will have the other hip done as well very soon which is when I hope she really feels the benefit of the surgery.
Best wishes to Maureen, Brian smile
Hope all goes well for Maureen.

A beautiful house, Brian. You can't beat the Georgians for architecture.

Take care, both of you.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pauline.
So glad the volunteers were able to save many of the historical artifacts of Wordsworth's birthplace.

Best wishes to Maureen for successful operations and speedy recovery. She is very fortunate to have you looking after her, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly, I will show her what you wrote about me, I wonder if she'll agree smile
Give my love and best wishes to Maureen. Hope all goes well and she is soon back in action. Having to eat your cooking will spur her on grin
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. What cooking is that, I'll admit to being one of those men who doesn't cook much, but I guess we wno't starve.

It's only fairly recently that I learnt that Wordsworth lived in Cockermouth. I think I learnt that from Philine!

I hope that her operation goes well and she is a patient patient when she returns home. Don't worry commenting; some things are even more important than photography smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I hope she's patient when she gets home as well, I'm not the world's best at cooking and domestic!

Great picture Brian. I hope your wife is better soon.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances.
Hope all goes well for Maureen Brian. I am going to have to have it done sometime in the future too.

He came from a well to do family by the look of it. Nice shot
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet. Maureen has been putting it off for quite a while, especially as the other hip will have to be done later on, but now she is approaching 66 they will hopefully see her through for many years to come.
All the best to Maureen - and to you as head cook, nurse and bottle-washer.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila.
I hope it all went well for Maureen Brian! Pass on my best wishes to her.
Brian Walbey: Indeed the nursing staff have told me all went well Richard, thanks for your kind thoughts.
