We do get snow here, we have 3 snow resorts in Victoria. I avoid them, it's too cold for me. Near where my eldest lives has been blanketed in snow, outer Melbourne and it doesn't usually see snow. The weather is quite extreme at present. Weather bureau said it's a normal occurrence which happens approx every 5 years, I'm not so sure. I've added a pic of my brother and sister in law taken today on a trip to find snow. Tina is Philipino and hadn't seen snow.
Glad to hear Dave is recovering well, Would have been better if it didn't happen anytime but now especially. When you're on anti coagulants you can bleed quite a lot even from just a small scratch, Neil would bleed for ages even after a shaving nick, when he was on them.
Happy Anniversary for tomorrow. Make an effort tomorrow. We never did for our anniversaries but I really wish we had now. We nearly made our 35th Anniversary. Neil said when he first started treatment that he was going to do things differently when he was better. He always put work first,, missed family functions, all sorts of things, He wasn't going to put work first all the time and do more with family, see more of the grandkids etc. He missed that chance. You and Dave have been given a 2nd chance, don't pass up an opportunity, do all that you want.
Things aren't too bad really, I think I'm coping well. I do keep myself occupied. Don't ever feel guilty "moaning" (as you say), it's always good to get it off your chest. I think it helps us cope with what we're going through. 12 months ago I was "moaning" about Neil's treatment, and his symptoms, setbacks. I was so given so much support, love and even my sanity at times.
Lots of love
