Back up from Dublin. got o catch up on things. due to ipage being so greedy I have cancelled my website. So now begins the hard work building a new one. It will not interfere with the puzzle page for those that do them.  I was not prepared to pay from last years £149 increeased to £256. So I told them cancell me. to add insult to injury  they are advertiseing a site fron £24 per an. Do I look stupid?

Mavis has been busy since we got home but she has enjoyed her  Dublin trip. She is talking about Japan now. So to answer my above yes perhaps I do. lol.

My son and dil says louis has behaved so well



Funny ole day. At first my back was real bad again so it was Emu oil and my  back belt. A walk with louis was a careful afair. As it is still wet and muddy we didnt make the park sorry Louis. AS the day wore on  back problem eased a bit. I think this is something I am going to have to live with.

mavis is still coughing her insides up but  mine has been quiet today. Most of my  cold symptoms have eased up. I am at last getting over it.



new-logo2After my silly fall over on the ice with louis this morning. Ive taken it easy as the fall did jar my back. But apart from wet trousers and a wet backside I am OK. Our snow has  cleared but its so cold and wet. Mavis is still coughing but she feels  human again. been tidying facebook, but aftewards it shut down. Nothing ,but its back now. No fb ,could be a good thing.


new-logo2Been to the Marsden again for Scan results. Due to the Train strike. The roads were packed. The normal hour and a bit journey  today took 2 and a half hours. But we got there. We took louis with us for a change.

But all that matters was the results. The Doctor came out  of her office to meet us. All smiles and pleasantries ,allways a good sign. There is no change in your condition no presence of mesothelioma and no evidence of any condition that may change that. Well done. Such a relief.

We went to  Oak ward to visit and say hello to old faces. Gradually  those faces became new faces. But still a few old ones to  say hello to. Next its always sad when we meet up with a warrior who is not doing so well on the drug. I leave the chatting to mavis . Soon its time to face the traffic  home, but  journey was not to bad. We next return in 8 weeks. Hope the news is the same. Fingers crossed.


Feeling lot better now cough not so harsh. Still not a lot of energy but another few days and I recon  it will be over.

Tomorrow is Marsden day ,scan results. Always a worrying time. Not sure  about  journey on M25 with train strike it could be a nightmare. I will tell you tomorrow. I hope you are finding the return of the puzzle page is ok now. Sorry about the lapse.


The past week or so now Ive had this latest bug  coughing and  cold . So  those   who do my daily puzzles sorry but Ive just not been up to  pc working. We went to a pantomime on Saturday. and a meal out with the group. All of which I could well have done without. But  I am at least feeling a bit human today . So a puzzle Is done and I  expect to  do more in the week. Thank you  for your patience. We get mavis scan results this week ,always a worrying time.

The prospect of getting to London this week is worrying maybe we wont go.

Mavis is still suffering today ,so many people have it. Roll on summer at least we can sit in the warm sun and feel better.


After an error in timing and getting up at 4.10 this morning. It turns out mavis had wrong date for  her scan, its tomorrow. But about 6.30 she let out an OMG my scan is TODAY. Panic Stations. But it wsnt until late today. So come 2pm we set off for the Marsden. It was packed. Catch up after Christmas.. She had trouble with her bloods but it took over half an hour trying to get a cannula into her. I was sitting outside and started to panic. Eventualy  all sorted and on our way home we got home around 7.30pm. Just another day at the office.
