Hi Jules,

Just wanted to check in under your new thread.  I'm glad to read (on your old thread) that your grandchildren are keeping your spirits up.  Am continuing to think of you, and I too wish that PM was sorted out.  Take care.  Hope x

Good morning Jules,

Your need to draw a line under the last thread and start a new one is completely understandable and a good idea and the title is so apt.

I did post a reply last night but unfortunately I was writing it at the same time as it was being closed off so I got an error message which I promptly blamed on this new site but an email from the moderators this morning and a helpful link explains everything. The moderators really do a great job here especially when they put up with a rant from the likes of me so, if you are reading Lucie thank you and my appologies again for venting.

To make it short I was told by my Mum that my youngest Neice, Hannah is in hospital and undergoing tests to try and find the cause of intense pain. I was initially annoyed with my sister for not telling me as she had already been in hospital 24hrs and the hospital itself is notorious for poor care so I am worried for her  especially when, at only 19yrs she is being given Morphine for the pain. When I know more I will let you know.

In the meantime I hope all of us can help you a little as you continue your journey.

Lots of love and hugs.

Garf. xx

Morning Jules,

Just caught up with your "new thread" and found you under life after cancer. It's going to take a few mistakes in the future to remember and get it right, but there you go it doesn't take that many repeats to learn a new habit. 

I hope you've got your weekend planned with your family and hope they are all well. I expect part of you is running on normal habits at the moment and then coming across the change and realising things can be, may be, will have to be different in the future. A lot to get used to. Sending you a virtual hand hold whilst this is going on hun. Loads of hugs 

Annabel. xx

Thank you so much for your kind words Garf! Where is the "blushing" smiley? Ha it's supposed to be this one but I don't think it's blushing enough: Blush

I can completely understand why you thought it was the forum playing up last night. I would have done the same as you especially as you lost your post! It must have been incredibly frustrating for you and it was bad luck you were posting right at the same time as I was locking the thread.

So sorry to hear about the news about your niece. Hopefully she feels better soon and they find out what caused this intense pain.

Hi Jules, I also like your new title here. I hope you are taking good care of yourself as you take this journey to a different way of life. I'm sure there are a lot of adjustments to be made before you find a comfortable niche to settle into, but you seem to have very supportive family around to help you to do that. Also, your friends on the forum are always here because as you likely know, there will be bumps and bruises along the way.

Hi, I am having a few technical glitches with internet when on this site - error shows 'Gateway time out' - gobblygook to me!!  Also replies freezing.  Hope you get to see this but Moderator Lucie will look into itif it continues to be bothersome.

Have had family today and chat with Church official re service requirements and am currently munching on daughter in law's home made lemon curd and poppy seed muffin (she loves to experiment and is a gret 'baker'so very happy to be guinea pig!


Speak again soon. Jules

Hi Garf

Having issues with internet connection (and yes,, have paid the bill!!!!!).  Hopefully all my buddies will see this post and I just wanted to say thanks for all the continuing support - its means a lot especially with so many of you have your own troubles/journies to travel.


Hope you get some good news about Hannah very soon and will be thinking of you.

No win at the bingo but a very relaxing couple of hours after a very hectic week of appointments (same again next week as only have one fully free day.  May have writers cramp but making sure that all those I need to contact hear my news in the right way ~(if there is a right way to do it!!).  Had a couple of hours of retail therapy with mydaughter yesterday and today my son in law has cured my 'sticking front door' as I was in danger of being trapped indoors.  Eldest grandson has been having a laugh at my expense after we got out a load of old (and mean old) photo albums.  Wonderful memories for us all to look back on (though the photographer leaves a lot to be desired!!!).  Son's girlfriend popped in some shopping and home made muffins so think New Year's diet will have to begin in 2016 but we had a lovely chat (son was on a scuba diving course for the day).  Right had better get the washing ready as off to the launderette in the morning - will soon try and find the time to replace old one but not top of the list right now!.


Take care and hope you hear some good news soon.Hugs Jules x

Have read a couple of LeeChild books a few years ago.  Enjoy Kathy Reichs, Karin Slaughter, Jo Nesbo but to be honest working in a book department tend to read the 'backs' and try anything that takes my fancy.  Have a whole pile of books sitting waiting and may now begin to work my way through them.  Strange now that TVnot on all day but I am a fan of having music on and finding that pretty relaxing at the moment.  Look after yourself.
