Lighting a candle

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Sending love and strength to everyone needing support :hug: :hug: ; I don't "visit" very often these days but when I do its this thread I read....I always light a candle and add the poster to my list of those I tuck close to my heart before I meditate.

Hi Sian. Wondered how you're doing a few days ago, my own "inner deamons" kicked off and it made me think of you :o .

This seems the most appropriate place to post this: Daughter (who hasn't spoken to me for a couple of months now) called me this morning to tell me that her Dad (who de-camped to Malta a few years ago) is now back in UK staying with his last Ex …. seems he is terminally ill with up to 3 months to live. I am not surprised given his lifestyle, but I think daughter is a bit shell shocked … She has only been told the barest details, so no idea what he is suffering from. Of course we shared some good times, but not that many, so I am not devastated, however, it's never good when someone you were once close to is not going to be around for much longer. Makes you address your own mortality . :shock: :cry:

As you say ... such things give us pause for thought .... my ex has been having radiotherapy; it appears for now at least to have been successful. If not hugely upsetting for me it had been for our children so of course it concerns me.

Complex emotions eh Patsy? :hug:

Hi Sian! :wave:

I know we've all lost people dear to us but loves and old flames of similar age bring all kinds of emotions to the fore. I've had a couple over the past year or so which have really given me a jolt. Thankfully, ex OH still seems well so DD & DS have not yet had to deal with that kind of thing.

Sorry Pats. :hug:

A little update on my mogs. The surviving one was a bit of a worry for a bit as the wound on his leg was bad but he suddenly turned a corner and is almost better. We were so relieved as we were about to cancel / postpone our trip to Slovenia. Anyway, we have left and I was worried about leaving him. But our house sitters have sent a photo of him sitting on the dining table with his own bowl of soup whilst they have dinner. His own bowl of soup :scared: He will pick up dreadful habits but at least he is happy.....

A candle please for my Editorial Consultant of the past 10 years who passed away this morning. She had been diagnosed with cancer of the bone marrow on Monday and slipped into a coma on Wednesday. It has all happened so quickly. I will miss her so much as she really did teach me everything I know about publishing and editing. RIP my Swansea mummy
