I haven’t seen you for a while, I thought it was about time we had some sort of catch up.
It has to be said this year hasn’t been the easiest of years. Besides my own health ups and downs, I have shared in the sorrows of friends and colleagues who have had to endure their own journeys of loss and health issues.
Remaining positive and cheerful has been a challenge and I still battle to come to terms with the changes in my life. However through all that has happened I have had the opportunity to experience so much that may have passed me by if life had carried on as it was.
I have been overwhelmed by the love, care and support from family, friends, colleagues, nurses, doctors, receptionists, and complete strangers. I have witnessed first hand the NHS at it’s very best and I have had much more time to appreciate my delightful grandson who is like a ray of sunshine bringing joy wherever he goes.
I have also been lucky enough to be able to spend more time with my lovely husband, sister, mum and youngest daughter (above). I don’t see so much of Pollyanna due to her work commitments but she continues to make me feel so proud as she uses her passion, knowledge and skills to improve the lives of others in her work within the NHS. Hopefully we will be able to catch up more over the next week or so as she takes a well deserved break.
Health wise, it’s still backwards and forwards to London for check ups but on the whole things are pretty stable at the moment and I have been given the OK to have a six week break. This will allow us the time to chase some winter sunshine in the New Year as we plan to head down to Portugal. So look out for some more motorhome tales and pictures from who knows where.
I would like to take the opportunity once again to Thank You all for your kindness and support throughout the year.
I haven’t sent out Christmas cards but instead donated the money to Macmillan Cancer Support who do such a wonderful job.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year.
