What a long time it's benn since I posted!
I've move home since then too!
Having said I'm back, I'm going to be off line for a few days or so as I'm getting the little bedroom phone line sorted so I can have the Computer in there.
So, I'll bring you up to scratch soon.
Take care all,
My lovely Brother passed away on Monday morning, very peacefully with his wife and children at his bedside.
We had said our goodbyes on the previous Saturday and then left what time he had left to his immediate family.
Rest in Peace my lovely Brother xxx
I've not been here for a while, sorry if you've missed my drivel!
My Brother has detiorated at an alarming rate in the last 2 weeks and I can't seem to concentrate on anything else for very long, hence the lack of posts. But, I have been taking a peek at your blogs and occasionally commenting, so, not completely absent.
Here's a pic of a Green Woodpecker on the path at the back of my home.
Hope you are not in a flood area and that the water subsides soon if you are.
Take care all!
Last Thursday, I had some sad news that my older Brother has Liver Cancer, directly linked to the Genetic blood disorder, Haemochromatosis (overload of Iron -Ferritin).
He has been given 2 - 4 months to live. This is very worrying for all of his siblings as, we all have the condition too. So my GP has referred my Sister and myself to a different Haematologist, (The last one at a different hospital never offered us counselling) and sending me for an urgent C.A.T scan of my Liver, Sister too.
Just when I thought that my condition was under control, I now have the worry that things might not be so good.
My Brother has a wife and 2 grown up children and 3 Grandchildren and it is going to be so hard for them losing Dad and Grandad at only 61yrs of age.
Things like this make you think hard about your own mortality, so I'm having a good think about what I want and want to do with my life, however long I've got.
I'm having a major clear-out of the clutter and things I don't need or use anymore,take them to charity shops etc.
I'm going to make all my presents and cards and things, I have enough resources that's for sure!
So, 'Live for the day' I think now, hopfully not being pessimistic but, realistic.
Take care,look after yourselves and have a great week!
