  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff @Lesley Stonkered. Doesn't that mean drunk 🥴? Haha, only joking. We are getting rid of a lot of our stuff in preparation for our move though we haven't sold our house yet☹️. Loads of books and CDs and later it will be furnitu…
  • @Davidvalletta Hi David That is good news and I am pleased for you both. Ah, so you live in Gods Own County. I went to school in Ripon many years ago and I still love Yorkshire and visit as often as I can. I was fooled into thinking you might be …
  • @Davidvalletta Hi David and Janet I am thinking that Janet will have had her surgery by now. I do hope that it went well and that she is making a good recovery. All the best to you both Rob
  • @Sunshinedaff @Anneb Morning both Haha Lou Mary and I went to our favourite place, Estepona in Southern Spain for a month in March last year and it rained for three weeks solid. Whoever said "The rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain" c…
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou My niece and the girls were disappointed by the weather. They have never had it so bad before and I think they will be going to Crete next year bless them. Yes, the BeeGees thing was a theatre show. It wasn't bad and Be…
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Wow Margy That is some view on the way home from shopping. Thanks for sharing. Sorry to hear about the wisdom teeth. Feel for you. My sisters 76th birthday last Wednesday. She came over to Jersey with her husband, daughter an…
  • @KitKat Hi Catherine Lovely to hear from you. Thanks for the update. It is good to know that they are taking so much care of you, that you know what to expect and that you are chillin. Good for you. 😁 Rob x
  • @Jojodot @Sunshinedaff Hi Jojdot Good to hear that you got your dental appointment. It is unbelievable to hear how unhelpful the receptionist was. You just don't need that when you are going through cancer treatments. Anyway, it is good to hear tha…
  • @Lesley @LouiseJ @Anne31 Hello everyone We have been out and about today. Pretty wet, but still warm. Mary is still taking pics of gorillas 🦍 Not sure what we are going to do with them all. The family arrive this evening. Poor things love the bea…
  • @KitKat Hi Catherine Wow, things are moving fast but at least you are not hanging around waiting. You have been through so much already but you will get through again and we will be here to chat and to cheer you on. Rob x
  • Hi @Jojodot I do hope that you now have your diagnosis and treatment plan in place. It is not surprising that you have been feeling so anxious, it would be more surprising if you were not. I found it a bit easier to cope once my treatment program…
  • @KitKat @KarinSieger Hi Catherine Its amazing that you have been the same weight since you were a teenager, assuming that was a few years ago😀. I had always been quite thin until the meds took over three years ago and I do get a few comments from p…
  • @KarinSieger @KitKat Hi Karin I love the 3 important things which you have identified which we can do. They have helped me enormously. I am retired so the first one is relatively easy. It took me a while, but I have learned not to get impatient o…
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Hi Margy and Lou Ah thanks Margy, Jersey is a lovely friendly and safe place to live. How amazing that your sister has been here. We are just waiting for Lou to pay us a visit now. it is also the 60th anniversary of the Geral…
  • @Sunshinedaff Hi Lou Haha, good job that chap wasn't sitting in his car at the time. 💐🌷🌹🤯 What great photos - didn't know you were so little 🤣🤣🤣. You'd be a great foil for those guys anyway. Cards, wine and dinner and where better than in Saumur. …
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Afternoon Lou and Margy, It is warm and humid here though the wind is getting up and we are expecting some poor weather. Doubt whether it can match yours though Margy. Well, never mind, enjoy Elaine and Graham and keep the we…
  • @Pete1 @LouiseJ Hi Pete My situation is different inasmuch as I have advanced and aggressive prostate cancer though the cancer has moved the other way and has not invaded my bladder. I have been through the radiotherapy you describe and I am on lo…
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Hello dear friends No need to hold back Margy🏏 Tell it as it is.🤣🤣 Yes Lou, England did lose and to rub it in, one of the naughty boys (sandpaper) scored more than half of the Aussie runs. Ah well, the football season starts t…
  • Hi @Milliemoo I am so sorry to hear about your Mum, it must have been devastating to get the news so soon after losing your Dad and I feel for you and all of your family. It must be particularly hard for your Mum to get this news at a time when she…

  • @lovemymum Hi I am just writing to add my welcome to our lovely community. It sounds as if your family has had a tough time recently. I am sorry to hear about your Mum but it is great to hear that your sister has come through her lymphoma cancer…
  • @Anneb @LouiseJ @Kim1966 Hello friends Hi Kim, I am sorry to hear that you feel like a prisoner in your own home due to your hot sweats. I think that Margy's take on the situation is spot on. PeopIe tend to be so supportive when you explain your si…
  • @KitKat This is a photograph I took on a walk earlier in the season. I don’t know what type of horse they are but they were very friendly and it was lovely to see them. Rob x https://us.v-cdn.net/6030992/uploads/284/8NC08X6QOF3M.jpeg https://us.v-…

  • @LindsayB22 Hi Lindsay Oh what a relief it is to hear your news. I am so pleased for you. Haha,not sure I would feel as if I was celebrating if I was just drinking water, but maybe it would work if I had a slice of carrot cake with it. Just. 🍰😋 Won…

  • @kaz01 Hi Karen I am so sorry to hear about your grandson's diagnosis. It is not surprising that you are feeling so anxious. You are right of course, it will be tough for him and it will be difficult for his Mum and also for you too. It might hel…
  • @Anneb @Sunshinedaff Good afternoon Margy and Lou Love your posts and suggestions. Thank you both. I will try the bandanna round my neck when I am doing the hoovering on Monday Margy. Our house has three floors and it is quite a big job so I wil…

  • @Blanka_C Hi Zahra My flushes are very intense but fairly short in duration.  It is a real problem at night as I have several, each lasting just four or five minutes each. My wife and I discovered that our best option is to use sheets and blankets …
