At last she posts!

Wow that was a big break from blogland by me, the longest one yet. I have started posting more than once and then decided against it, hopefully I will get as far as pressing the publish post button today. I have been visiting HSMSHS daily to have a look but it has been a long time since I felt inspired enough to get my camera out of its bag to actually do a prompt. I am hoping that one day soon the desire to join in will once again return.

We went away last weekend, in the freezing cold up to Center Parcs in the Lake District where we had a great time during our fourth visit. The boys loved it all the more this time because we let them go swimming by themselves. We also played a lot of Badminton which we have decided we all like so are planning to go as a family once a week and hire a court. This will have to wait for a while though as Pete is currently not well at all. He was in bed all day yesterday, he has managed to get up today but has only managed to get as far as lying down on the settee and watching a girly film with me.

His comment at the end? "That was gay".

Those of you that know us or have read my blog for a long time will know that for Pete to actually have a day (let alone two) off work is virtually unheard of. We have contacted the hospital and he is going in next Wednesday for a course of Venifer or Cosmifer (sp?) hopefully it will be the latter as that one is only a day the other is a 3 week course which means he will have to go to the hospital for one or two days every week for that length of time - not ideal especially when he is prone to not feeling good after it.

I'm off to go and subject Pete to another girly film now - who's the lucky boy then!

It was a long break indeed, and you were missed.
I'm so sorry Pete is poorly crook, and hope the meds do the trick.
Try to take care of yourself, too, won't you.
Love to you and the big boy

Poor old Pete, he never takes time off, just goes to show that it is not good. Got my fingers crossed for you for next week that the right meds will be in stock so that he can have the one that is a one stop shop and get it all over and done with!

Hi Rachael - I saw your name on facebook and ended up on this site .. and read about Pete's illness. I remember Pete from many years ago and am shocked to hear how poorly he hs been.

Hope that the medication helps him
