      Hi all at CC, hope you are all OK out there.  Been a bit down today.  Kept myself busy this week.  Thursday was a little difficult when my son Lee left but Friday and Saturday was quite good seeing people and watching the rugby.  Unfortunately this weekend was also not only memorable for me but for lost of other people as well.  Helen and I married on Remembrance Day Weekend.  So watchin...

        A day that could have been so bad was (just) ok.  Had a phone call monday of our son Lee saying he was coming to see me Tuesday evening, arriving about 9pm.  He arrived having driven some 4 hours from London.  We had a few drinks, something to eat.  We were about to go to bed when I said "you probably don't know what tomorrow is", he said yes I do, thats why I am here.  He said David (our oth...

          I just don't understand this new life of mine.  This evening I sat down and had a light meal of mini goats cheese's some with garlic, some with herbs, etc., some crackers, a few olives, some chorizo and a glass (well couple!) of white wine.  And I really enjoyed it.  Well whats wrong with that?  Its just that its taken me weeks, no months to have that meal.  It is what Helen and I used to hav...

            I used to comment to Helen about how when she went out she was always coming home with some sort of groceries, could never understand it!  I now do!!  Helen kept a very (very very) full larder and as well as the fridge freezer in the kitchen we had a large stand alone freezer in the garage.  I emptied and switched off that freezer a week ago, and at the same time I seem to have depleted the larder - I ...

                    Was out yesterday afternoon with some (some! was about 12 of us at one point!) friends for our early evening drink.  One of my friends John has not been for a while and said "your looking a lot healthy Ray, how are things going for".  I said that things were getting not better but easier.  He asked if I was back to doing things.  From our chatting I realised that the one thing I am not doing these...

                      Pete one of the side effects of the oral chemo (Capecitabine/ Exeloda) is hard skin on the feet.  I did get quite accomplished at removing the hard skin which sometimes took just 8 to 10 days to harden up again.  Helen also complained of what she called "fidgety legs" and again massages were required.  When Helen got quite ill I did used to go out but was always restless until I was back home. Have a ...
