Hearts are broken every day, unfortunately but "such is life".  With resourceful use of our time, hearts mend and pieces of it will always be reserved for those we lost and loved.  I fear for my…Continue

Is love essential to happiness, something two people can grow into (or out of)? Does "friends first" work, or when two people who are good friends get intimate, does it always spoil the friendship? …Continue

Well started back to help out at Emergency today, I have changed my day to Monday now, then it is over with and I have the rest of the week to do as I wish. Its not called Manic Monday for nothing, but the time just flies when it is busy,

Finished the sweater and just doing the border and putting the buttons on. ( lordy they aint cheap.....the buttons I mean).

So lovely to get everyone talking again, really missed you guys.

I spent Christmas with the kids in Edmonton, My Grandson took his Gramma tobogganing on Christmas day...even have it on film.

It was good even had snow up there . Its a really tough time for al of us, we will have to all get on Skype next year and have a drink of wine together .

G'morning Linda,

I had a bad time during this past holiday season too.   Christmas was always Eric's favourite holiday. Although I did all the decorating, I refused all invitations, and just stayed home.  We never know what those feelings will hit, eh.   

Once I got back into my activity routine in January, I was okay again.

Hugsss to ALL!!!!

Good morning everyone and Happy New Year. I booked some time off of work over the holidays. I got some things done, attended the dinners, hosted my family dinner on boxing day. I was on auto-pilot. Surprise surprise, I am in a depression. Anyway it too me three months to realize that I need to discuss with my doctor. Six and a half years later and it still happens. There's a lot more going on but I decided: it's Monday morning save it for later.. ha ha

It has been lovely to hear chatter on here again. Welcome to the new members although we wish it were not so. Family and good friends are very important in our journey as is the ability to talk about it.

Would love to meet up with you when you come down to Vancouver area. I am in the Fraser Valley. We will make sure we get together this time.

Just finished the cardigan I was knitting for my DIL, sewing it up and edging and buttons and on its way to Edmonton, although it was warmer there than here one day last week.....what is going on?????

I like a little something kooky or crazy in every room that makes me smile.  My small bathroom is a Baaa-throom, I have sheep in the pictures, on the back of the sink and a large one standing  behind the door. It causes a chuckle for every one that goes in there.

In my major bathroom I have a shoe with a red sole Blac

k with white dots, I will never afford them but it is nice to have a copy.

Tell you about the little cupboard that  I bought to hold my vegees.  It was in Winners I will take a photo and put it on here, once |I put it together.....that is why it was cheap.

Anyway am rambling, so goodnight everyone . Talk soon
