  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Hello dear friends Lovely to hear from you down under Margy.🙃 Wow, six cases of COVID. We have about 2000 here in Jersey where our overall population is around 100,000 people. Most of our population has had both jabs now and the one person who has died this year was a 47 year old man who had refused…
  • @LouiseJ Good afternoon Lou I was so sorry to hear that you have lost Charlie. I know from many of your posts over the last two years and more, how loved and loving he was and I think your tribute is beautiful. Thinking of you and your family. Rob xx
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou Yes, just carrying on as before. Ironically, I am quite used to it now and surprisingly, I have become quite happy eating an apple or some other fruit when I feel hungry. 😇I did have two chocolates yesterday and they tasted amazing.😀 We picked the new car up today and we took to it immediately. It is…
  • @Sunshinedaff Good evening Lou Of course you will miss Phoebe and she will miss you. FaceTime is not perfect but I find it a consolation that I am able to speak with and see my sisters whilst using it. I think that Phoebe is very courageous taking on this new challenge and I know she will make you proud. We pick the car up…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou Wow, it’s Wednesday again already. I was thinking of how much you will miss Phoebe whilst she is away at Uni. Hopefully, you will be able to pop over and see her most weekends. It has been a busy two weeks with the medics. I am looking to get my steroid use reduced significantly over the next few weeks…
  • @Sunshinedaff Good afternoon Lou Well, we had quite a storm last night and it is a bit cooler today thank goodness. Ooh a Dyson. That sounds really good and I imagine it is a lot quieter than our fan too. One of my blood tests has indicated that my type 2 diabetes has receded. I am particularly pleased as I chose to cut…
  • @Sunshinedaff Good afternoon Lou Thank you for this valuable post sharing articles and your ideas for keeping cool in this unusually hot weather. Though we all like a bit of sunshine, the current temperatures are extreme and tough for most people, let alone those of us who are coping with the effects of cancer treatments.…
  • @Sunshinedaff Good afternoon Lou The car’s colour is surf blue and it is a bit bluer than it looks in the photograph. We are picking it up next week. Mary is a bit anxious about driving again, but she is a very good driver and she will soon get into the swing again. Of course, I should have realised it is Phoebe going to…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou Well, here we are again. The weekends seem to come round so quickly but this one is bathed in glorious sunshine after some pretty ordinary weather. It must be really disappointing having to miss out on your holiday in France. Who would have thought that we would still be embroiled in COVID having put…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou It has been a sunny and warm day here too. Your Exeter trip sounds really lovely. Is Hannah going to Exeter University? It must be a huge relief to be able to get back to some sort of normality, especially for young people who have missed out a lot because of COVID over the last 18 months or so. Well,…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou Yes, we were very lucky to be able to have that holiday of a lifetime. Well worth postponing my retirement for. I’ve coped with the disappointment of the football defeat quite well today.It was a wonderful month of football and a great achievement that this lovely inclusive group of youngsters even got…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou Yes, the football result was disappointing but as you say, the players should be proud of what they have achieved. The weather has not been too bad here today which is good as I had to go out for a blood test and Mary and I followed that up with a coffee and bacon sandwich in an open air cafe in town.…
  • @Sunshinedaff Yes, the cricket is on Sky. It is a pity really as the England cricket team are the One Day World Champions but it is not really recognised so much since the sport took the money and left the BBC way back in 2006. In those days, stars like Botham, Flintoff and Pietersen were household names and England were…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou We still have to wear masks on public transport here but no longer in shops or bars. Like you, Mary and I have had both jabs and we are also continuing to wear masks and social distance. I think we are the only ones though and I admit to being a bit uneasy about it as I am on medications which…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou Haha, it looks as though the whole nation is now transfixed by the football at the moment. I am particularly pleased because Gareth Southgate is a genuinely nice, polite and respectful man who has brought the players together as a team in a way that I have not seen done by an England football manager…
  • @GrannyMosh @LouiseJ Good afternoon dear friends. How lovely to hear from you Brenda. Wow, looking after the grandchildren must have been tiring but no doubt fun too. Sepsis is really scary and that 8 week stay in hospital must have been very difficult for you. I hope that you are keeping well now. Yes, we read a lot about…
  • @LouiseJ Good afternoon Lou I love the photo and also the sentiment. Yes, we are here to support and chat. Let’s keep in touch. Rob x
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Wow Margy That IS a fire. Trust the wine and marshmallow went well with it. We enjoyed a steak in a local restaurant last night. It was pretty good but would have been even better if it had been grilled over a proper fire. The weather here is still a bit iffy and we haven’t been out today which we…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou and anyone reading. I love your sentiments and would like to add that I am also available to chat about anything and nothing. Sharing symptoms, anxieties and feelings can be really comforting and reassuring. I have often been surprised and reassured to find that my thoughts and worries are similar to…
  • @Sunshinedaff @Anneb Good afternoon dear friends. I love your pics Margy, and Jingellic looks rather nice but it is a bit small. Hopefully, the Bridge Hotel has a nice bar and restaurant for a night out. Is it near any towns? East Albury has grown quite a bit over the last 50 years. I am not surprised looking at the photos…
  • @LouiseJ Good afternoon Lou What a lovely post. Yes, it must be a sadness for you that your Dad was not able to see your girls growing up but at least he lived to see you in a happy and fulfilling marriage blessed with children. I think of my Dad a lot too. He was brought up by two aunts and barely knew his parents, but he…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Haha. No we haven’t taken anything out of storage. Some say that if you don’t do so you don’t need it but we have parted with so much from our past we can’t let go of anything more. I know how you feel about that. I always wanted a writing bureau but I have settled for a laptop rest which I can hide behind…
  • @LouiseJ Oh Lou. Your garden looks amazing. You really do have green fingers. I think I would be tempted to just sit in it with a glass of something but I know it would not look nearly so good without all the work you do. Well, since we do not have a garden, I will just post a photo I took in our travels around Jersey. Rob…
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Oh great.Welcome back Margy, Mary and I were thinking of you yesterday. I figured out how to show our photographs on our smart 55in TV screen and we had a lovely session looking at some Australian ones from eight years ago. We know that we will probably not be able to return to Oz but we have our…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Haha, that photo is funny. I’ve had a little setback inasmuch as my GCA flared up the other day and I have had to push the steroids back up again. Looks as if I will have to go onto the new biological treatment which involves self injecting every week but will hopefully allow me to cut down on the steroids…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou My goodness, I am really impressed that you have produced such an excellent fluent commentary by speaking into your phone. I have had a go but my attempt was full of errs and ums and general bumbling comments and I have abandoned the attempt for now. I know that you have had a number of challenges to face…
  • @Chilali1531 @LouiseJ Yes Ali, we are lucky to live here in Jersey which has many beaches, most of which are sandy and very attractive. We don’t have high rise hotels and apartment blocks which is nice too. Even so, I envy you your beautiful mountain scenery and you will be looking forward to heading off to your holiday…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Well, you know where we are 😉 xx
  • @Sunshinedaff @Chilali1531 Good afternoon everyone. Oh Lou. Half way through the year! we will be thinking about Christmas soon. 🥶😂 Haha, with your approach to life you will never get old. It is good to hear that your swimming sessions are back on and it sounds a lot better with the pool not being so crowded. Sorry about…
  • @Sunshinedaff Good afternoon Lou So sorry to hear about your cold. I know how much you will have been looking forward to swimming again after such a long wait. Hopefully all is now well. Well done Phoebe and how lovely being able to celebrate with a pub meal. It seems such a long time since we have been able to do normal…
