D, saw her great-uncle the other day, who is in a wheelchair sometimes.

She came home and said to us, “I’ve just seen uncle George, he was in his wheel barrow ”

priceless

Is this a new theme, or am I being a bit Koi ??

Still unsure about this theme, it seems a bit wussy for me, it is supposed to be subtle, but I think it goes a bit too far !

BUT a long weekend back in God’s own country of Yorkshire beckons soon, counting down the days till I see the folks again. though it means more home renovations on my sisters house probably, and in fairness she don’t pay well!!! haha

listening to The Gaslight Anthem – ’59 Sound


 I’m not a fan of live cd’s

Pink Floyd – pulse, and Red Hot chili’s – Hyde Park are exceptions.

But This cd is AMAZING…….

 If you are a fan of Alter Bridge, then this CD is an absolute must !!

 For the bargain price of £8.99 (uk) you get the Live DVD, the Live CD , an hour documentary, and photo gallery……    ANY other band would charge x3 times as much for this easily.

 Ok I am biased ‘cos I love Alter Bridge, and Myles Kennedy’s voice as a singer, but if you like Rock , then this seriously is for you,  go to their web page and listen to the sample songs from the last album.

 If you get a chance also to hear Slash’s live recording from Vancover last year, ( oh , with Myles Kennedy as vocalist !! ) this also is an amazing live album !


 

 Sorry for not responding sooner… i’ll keep this brief because we haven’t decided what to do yet, and until then I won’t say too much.

 It was a, …..   strange …  check up to say the least.

 The usual ECG , which we had a job to quiten D down, bless her she cried, ( only natural when your getting plastered in wires . )

 The the consultant scanned her for with a ultrasaound for 10 minutes,

 sat down

then said ” OH I was supposed to look at the other side ”

” eerr, I’ll see D in a years time, she wouldn’t let me see all the right areas. ”

( I’m not being funny here, D didn’t not move !!!!  she was too interested watching her heart on the monitor !!! )

We are currently awaiting the confirmation letter of the scan, to see how to proceed with this very unsatisfactory outcome to the scan.


 

 D, has her heart appointment on Thursday,  not life threatning, but it may need sorting.

If you can spare us a thought on Thursday it would be appreciated,

 Basically there is 2 outcomes.

1) Full discharge.

2) Back to Bristol and have the procedure done again.

 It is a ….  worrying time, we thought we were over it, then at the check up they added a year to the final discharge date to be sure. You think a year is a huge time away, but it is amazing how soon it  comes around again.

Surgery is worrying when it is yourself having it, but when your child has to have it, it suddenly blows things out of proportion, remembering the operation nearly 3 yrs ago is bad, but now D being nearly 4 she will be fully aware of what is happening, which makes it harder for us parents……. The worst part was remembering the surgeon saying “Do you want to kiss D good-bye?? “……..   I was furious inside, it wasn’t GOOD-BYE..  only … good-night.for couple of hours.  I keep saying it but before you have children, you can’t put yourself in the shoes of someone with children ( I do not try to make myself out to be something special saying that…. ) but it is true, things change. The amount of love you have for a child is incredible, and undescribable.  and naturally you don’t want any harm to come to them, you want to shield them from harm.

So if you can spare us a thought on Thursday it would be apprecriated.


The times they are a changing …..   said someone, once.

 Well they are at Sheffield Wednesday !

 Saved from the brink by Milan Mandaric, and I mean the brink, their future is starting to look rosy.

 Although the team, can’t put 90 minutes of football together, at least now there is investment into the squad, something that has been lacking for years !!

 Goodbye to Darren Purse, you wore your heart on your sleeve, but I think the time was right to move. all the best for the future, maybe we’ll be playing against you next season in the Championship !

 If only we could sign a good midfielder, someone to hold and then distribute the ball, we would be a force to be reckoned with. No more long ball game please.

The future is bright, the future is blue and white!!


I went home last weekend, which was … Fantastic.

 I didn’t get to go at Christmas, so this kinda made up for it.

 Firstly I got to see the family, which as I get older I appreciate more and more, I think when you are younger you kind of take them for granted, nothing in life should be taken for granted, So I spent some time with them, and my Gran. Helped my sister finish pull down a ceiling, and clear up then start clearing the green house of last years rubbish, ready for this years harvest.

 Managed to get to see Sheffield Wednesday, though paying £24 for about 24 minutes of decent football is not value for money. How a team can totally underperform one half, yet show sparks of brilliance in the second half is totally beyond me, but that is the life of a suffering football fan, The future is bright, the future is blue and white.

 Thanks to my sister and boyfriend, I discovered Bradfield Brewery, and their fantastic ales www.bradfieldbrewery.co.uk , ( I think I know where I’m visiting on my next trip home ! )

It was all in all a very good weekend, I need a few lung fulls of Yorkshire air again to rejuvinate me, It’s still my home.
