another year and another xmas

  carver 09:34 20 Dec 2018

Hi everyone, I know I haven't been visiting the site to often recently but personal circumstances these last couple of years have been a bit difficult but may I just say Merry xmas to all and everyone, there are some wonderful people on this site who have helped me and other people and it's been very appreciated. This is the second xmas I will have achieved since being diagnosed with terminal cancer (don't talk about it). Hopefully I may see next xmas and if I do then that is a bonus. But and it's a big BUT in the time I have been having treatment life has taught me that there is no guarantee there will be a tomorrow. So enjoy today, tell the family how much you love them because you may not have the chance tomorrow. Anyway once again Merry Christmas and may you all have a wonderful new year.

life is a bitch and I say its a good job we don't know what tomorrow will bring , this was brought home to me 3 weeks ago , a woman I work with went home 3 weeks ago and died over the weekend she was not even ill , I was the last person to find out when I went back to work the following week as I am the only one not on facebook !

She was only 56 , I have lots so many people over the last year that I now say sod it if I can afford it I am having it.

After big ben strikes at new year I always go outside and raise a glass to them all , you are still around but just in case I will add your name to my list.

Same from me, best wishes to you and yours. We none of us know what's round the corner.

As a number of you have said you never know whats around the next corner. I had news a few months back that someone I had worked with for over 20 years had fallen to the big C. He had always been a very fit person. Always ate healthy food ( at the insistance of his Wife), and had run the London Marathon several times. He was younger than me and contracted aggresive Liver Cancer which took him in just a few months.
