A HUGE thankyou from me and mum

Thanks to all the wonderful people on this forum, I have had soooo many emails and messages of support re my mum, so if I havent replied to everyone (been a tad busy) Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou.

She had a mini stroke (her third) and will never be ok due to severe stage Alzheimers but I have just spent 2 absolutely fantastic days with her, couldnt have been better.

Did I tell you all

Hey there, Cathy. I didn't know about your mum (as you know, I haven't been in here for ages). I'm glad you've had some good time with her.

Have a great trip, and I'll see you there!

Hi Cathy,

None of us would be anything without our families and its always sad to see one of your loved ones with an ailment as it is so draining mentally.

I am glad you had a nice 2 days with your Mum its something you will always treasure.

I am sure you and Gary will have a wonderful time and "is it only 3 more sleeps"??? are you sure??

Cheers, Pete.

Hiya Cathy, I'm so glad you spent some quality time with your Mum before you go. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. xx

Now, I realise the bags were out of the cupboard a couple of days ago.....but....have you even started packing yet.??? How many cases does one take when one is leaving for sooooooo long. I need to research this for the VILLA trip.. haha
