Season's Greetings and an update on Mum

Life does get hectic sometimes doesn't it!

Firstly an update on my dear Mum. She had a successful operation for bowel cancer last week and is now back at home and doing rather well. She came home 5 days after her operation and doesn't need any further treatment, as far as we know at this stage. So that is extremely good news. She is remarkable to be doing so well at 88 and still keeping her sense of humour. Bless her heart.

Life is very busy though as you can imagine with Christmas preparations now speeding up. The weather is very trying with all the snow we have been having and we are just hoping that our daughter and grandaughter will make it to us on Christmas Eve.

So I would like to take this opportuniy to wish everyone a peaceful and happy Christmas and send you all the very best wishes for a healthy and prosperous New Year. I leave you with this lovely Christmas Carol.




Love and hugs to all. A xxx

I was so sorry to hear about your Mother's operation Anne, but glad everything went well. I wish her a speedy recovery. Hope your daughter makes it to your house on Christmas Eve, as from what I hear and have seen on the news, the UK has been blanketed with loads of snow. We were expecting it on Christmas Day but looks like it will be on Boxing Day now, unless that changes too. Merry Christmas and A Very Happy New Year.

So glad to hear that your Mum is doing well after her op! Bowel cancer is one of the more treatable, but still scary, and of course, the older you are, the more scary it is. Long may she keep her sense of humour and her health.

Lovely to hear Susan Boyle is doing so very well, bless her.

Merry Christmas! x

I am glad to her your Mother's surgery was successful and she is doing well. She sounds like a remarkable woman.

From watching the news it looks like your weather has been making a mess out of travel. I hope your daughter and granddaughter made it to you home for Christmas.

So pleased to hear your mother is on the mend. It's a worrying time, she must be a marvel at 88 but I think the doctors and nurses perform miracles these days.

Have a wonderful year in 2011.
