Firstly, thanks to all of you who have stopped by and left comments in our absence. I can't believe it's been nearly two months since I blogged, the time seems to have flown by.

You'll all be pleased to hear that not much has been happening here. Mike has had the odd cold complete with chesty cough but is otherwise in good health. The hospital has increased the gap between appointments to three months (it was every 6 weeks) and life feels pretty normal. In fact yesterday was the first time in weeks that we even mentioned the M word. It's funny how things have changed over time. At the beginning I wanted to know everything about the M word and how to defeat it , but now I'm more laid back. As I said to Mike "I don't have to know how a jet engine works, I just need it to get me on holiday!"

Like Karen and Sandy recently commented, we are still very raw at times about the loss of Sweet P. Like you Karen I had a complete melt down Thursday evening and found myself sobbing just because I remembered how lonely the two Bs would be at Christmas. I guess there are a lot more tears still to be shed and there is no point trying to stop them.

So, it's a new month and I think about time I tried to blog at least once a week again. I can't promise that they will be interesting posts, I don't have Paula's ability to make even the worst situations funny, but I will try and amuse you any way.


  1. Welcome back! Glad to see a post from you!

  2. So happy to see a new post. Missed ya Lorna! You too Mike! xoxo Glad that things are more normal for you.

  3. Hello again! We missed you! Glad to see Mike has been treating you to high class meals while you were gone. SO good to hear he has graduated to 3-monthly appointments :D

  4. Good to hear that Mike's health is stabilized and just know that when we don't hear anything, we are still thinking about y'all...

  5. So glad that things are good and "normal??"......I agree with your comment about no longer needing to know everything about MM. I find myself not looking....trying to forget (is that even possible?)

    Now, where's the recipe that goes with the can of Spam?? LOL
