  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou I remember reading about the knitted knockers the first time round. They would not be of value to me of course, 😉 but I clearly recall how the article demonstrated the kindness of people who give their time and their skills for no personal reward. In this instance, as in so many cases those volunteers do…
  • @LouiseJ Oh Lou, it sounds as if you and Mark have really been through the mill. I do hope that you are feeling better now and that your tooth has been sorted out too. My lateral flow test came out negative today which is really good news. Unfortunately, Mary is still positive but at least she feels OK. In truth, I don’t…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou We are sorry to hear that you are still struggling with your mystery illness. It sounds rather worse than the symptoms we are having from COVID. I had hoped to be clear today but my Lateral Flow Test was still showing positive this morning. At least we are allowed out for up to two hours for exercise…
  • @LouiseJ Oh Lou I am sorry to hear that you are still so unwell. 🤗🤗 Not a great start to 2022 but hopefully there is plenty of time for things to improve. Would you believe that Mary and I have both tested positive for COVID. I was due to meet a friend for lunch on Friday and as I had a slight sore throat I decided to do a…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou What a lovely post. I agree that the New Year celebrations can be difficult to get through for many reasons. As you know, Mary and I decided against visiting family in the UK for the second year running. My immune system is still vulnerable due to treatments and we don’t feel ready to fly due to the COVID…
  • @LouiseJ @jacksprat_x1 @NanaBubbles Hello Lou We have had an interesting week inasmuch as a neighbour of ours had a visitor from my hometown Hartlepool last week. His friend is 69 and has been a member of the Hartlepool cricket club for 53 years. He came visiting and we enjoyed a really great couple of hours together. We…
  • @NanaBubbles @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Oh Michele It is really sad to hear that you are no longer able to walk in the countryside. I really hope that the powered wheelchair is a help and allows you and Geoff to get out and about and enjoy the countryside together. Wow, climbing the Old Man at Coniston is a real achievement and…
  • @NanaBubbles @LouiseJ @Anneb Hello everyone Oh Michele. What a bad time for your boiler to pack in and how dreadful that you have to wait so long to get it sorted out. I love that photo taken whilst you were driving through Ilkley. You had also mentioned Otley, a town Mary and I know well. Otley is less than 4 miles from…
  • @NanaBubbles @Sunshinedaff Hi Michele and Lou. How I envy you that drive through the Dales Michele. Mary’s sister has a static caravan on a farm somewhere between Skipton and Ilkley. We can see the Cow and Calf rocks in the distance from the caravan I love both of those little towns, they are everything that Yorkshire is…
  • @Sunshinedaff @NanaBubbles Good afternoon everyone Oh Lou. It must have been awful watching your Christmas tree crashing to the ground. What a relief that the damage wasn’t too bad. It certainly looks wonderful now. Haha, that picture of the dog looking guilty is so funny. Who says animals don’t have expressions! How…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Thank you for posting this, it is a very interesting observation. I have never thought of myself as being brave. I didn’t volunteer to have cancer and there have been times when I have been very depressed. Fortunately, I came across this community and also MacMillan Cancer Support and perhaps the knowledge…
  • @Anneb @NanaBubbles @Sunshinedaff @jacksprat_x1 @Chilali1531 Hello everyone It is lovely to hear from you and to catch up on all your news though I am sorry to hear that it is not all good. Haha Margy, I love those slippers. I was interested to hear your story and how your family were more scared than you were when you…
  • @NanaBubbles @Sunshinedaff @Anneb @Chilali1531 Hello everyone The Halloween trail around your village sounds like a lot of fun Michele. The children in London will have had a lovely time too and your granddaughter must have looked amazing. I hope you have some photographs of her in her outfit. Mary and I have also had our…
  • Hi Polster I'm sorry to hear that Decapeptyl only worked for a short period of time. I have just been put back on it and so it is too early to see how it will go for me. I have read about a system of combining existing treatments which has apparently been successful in trials. Here is an article about it which I found in…
  • @Anneb @LouiseJ @NanaBubbles @Chilali1531 Hello everyone Oh Margy, what a beautiful garden you have. Your photos are gorgeous. It seems so strange for us to hear about Christmas and lovely weather in the same breath. It is definitely cooling down in Jersey and though we miss our old house we appreciate the triple glazing…
  • @polster Hi there Polster At the time of my previous post (RobertA Jan 2019) I was on Decapeptyl which is the brand name for Triptorelin. It was administered quarterly by injection and my PSA remained very low for three years. A year ago, my Consultant decided that I should come off the treatment. Unfortunately for me, my…
  • @LouiseJ @NanaBubbles Good evening Lou Michele and everyone Wow Lou and Michele Your gardens sounds like wildlife parks. How exciting to have so many visitors. We don’t have any deer or foxes in Jersey and only red squirrels 🐿 which are mischievous and very nosy too. I am looking forward to seeing your very special azaleas…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Louise Many thanks for your kind comments. It is a bit disappointing though not entirely unexpected. The treatment worked before and I am sure it will do again. It is lovely to know that you are in our lives, it means so much to us. We are treating ourselves to a big steak and bottle of wine in our favourite…
  • @Sunshinedaff @NanaBubbles Hello Lou Michelle and everyone Oh Lou, I’m not in the Lennon and McCartney league and I do use computer technology to help with the videos and the music. I have a couple of friends who are really computer averse, one of whom is a really good singer/songwriter, and I am desperately trying to…
  • @Sunshinedaff Good afternoon everyone. I’m sorry to be late Lou, it is Thursday already. 😮 The weather here is beyond amazing. The Sun is blazing down and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. We have enjoyed a cream tea in a lovely café garden and we both have tans more in line with Spain than Jersey in October. I am so sorry…
  • @Sunshinedaff Dear Lou I am so pleased to hear how well the girls are doing now. Both of them are showing a great deal of courage and strength and I know you are rightly proud of them. I am sure that the love, encouragement and support which you and Mark have given them is a big factor. Rob xx
  • @NanaBubbles @Sunshinedaff Trust you are both enjoying this lovely autumn weather. It is really warm in the Sun, but quite cool in the shade here. I have to admit that I have not read anything lately. I am busy with a number of projects I am working on for Christmas. I have found some video of Christmas 2002 spent with…
  • @NanaBubbles @LouiseJ Hi Michele I wonder if your friend was well enough to complete the Manchester marathon. What an achievement that will have been. I hope that your swollen legs and tremors are improving. How lovely to see the grandchildren and to really get to know Thomas again on his second birthday. Oh what a…
  • @Sunshinedaff Good afternoon Lou Yes, let’s stick around for a while yet.😉 I am having my COVID booster next week and also my flu jab so that should help. It was a joy having Mary’s sister, Margaret, to stay. We did the tourist trips and ate and drank too much which was lovely. Margaret’s husband died suddenly nearly…
  • @Anneb @LouiseJ Lovely pics Margy. Your garden is amazing. Wow, 7 years diagnosed for Margy, 6 for Lou and 5 for me and were all still trucking 😂🤣. It’s nearly October and we have had a lovely week which is great as Mary’s sister is visiting - our first guest for two years. We took a drive along our east coast and enjoyed…
  • @Sunshinedaff @Anneb Haha Lou. I guess some of us are old enough to remember David Frost. 🤔😀 We are having great weather here too which is good as Mary’s sister, Margaret is staying with us. We went out for a meal at a lovely restaurant yesterday evening. I am on treatments (not cancer related) which compromise my immune…
  • @NanaBubbles @Sunshinedaff @Chilali1531 @Anneb Oh Michelle, you have had an awful time. I do hope that things are turning around and that you,your daughter and friend are feeling better now. Thank you so much for the recipe. You are right, it isn’t quite the same as the Yorkshire Curd Tart but it looks delicious and we are…
  • @LouiseJ Hi Lou Haha, yes, a welcoming Police Station can’t be bad. Maybe it will tempt criminals into popping in. 😂🤣 I am delighted to hear that Hannah is taking a year out to build up her strength and that she has a new job. It sounds like good progress. I hope that Phoebe settles well in Exeter and is looking forward to…
  • Hello Lou and everyone Yes, they are back. We live near a school and it is lovely to hear and see the children chatting and laughing as they make their way to school in the mornings. It is the Jersey Air Show tomorrow Lou, and we are hoping for clear skies and a good show. I saw a news report which said a biplane with a…
  • @Sunshinedaff @Chilali1531 Good afternoon dear friends Oh Ali How lovely to hear from you and to see your great photographs. It is special to see you always smiling and looking so lovely notwithstanding the very difficult times you are going through. It is wonderful to know that your brother is a perfect match and that it…
