Hope all you lovely Fruit Loops gave your Dad’s a wee thought if they aren’t here and a big hug if they are, and your menfolk-father’s of your family a hug too.....I remembered my Dad too, he went from lung cancer when I was 24, but was well enough to walk me down the aisle, bless him. 

happy Father’s Day all.......

Hi everyone

Welcome to the new fruitloops - all welcome in the nut house...... Seriously though, you'll find a lot of support from these lovely folks, day or night.

So, Friday we went to London for the day, a belated anniversary outing. Had a lovely meal at Shaka Zulu in Camden and walked a LOT.

Saturday was our local friendly inter-county match. Barebow is now properly on the map in Surrey - we annihilated Kent and Sussex!! 

Today has been spent like this:

Wish tomorrow wasn't Monday, my feet still hurt....

Hi All

Once again it's two in the morning and the brain has switched on.

I've got just one more day to wait for surgery,then I can start waiting for result a on the lymph node.

I'm not feeling too bad about after effects / recovery after the surgery. Last time all the trouble came from the lymph removals. In the olden days they took them all out.And it can't possibly be as bad as the surgery I've had on my feet in the past two years. 

I've been out of action,driving wise, for about 6 weeks. Anybody got an idea how long I'll be confined to barracks this time? 

Time for yoga breathing to go back to sleep.

Right this really is only a 'quick post' as it is not 1:34 in the morning and I still have cats and others to feed haha

, I love the photo, that place is beautiful.

, well I have happened upon archery on the tv yesterday, I'm sitting there saying..... my friend does this, only she is doing 'long bow' - then I laugh to myself ..... all of you Fruit Loops are in 'my world', my happy, go to world - my 'pick me up world, my I need help world, my 'can I help any of my friends world'.  You Fruit Loops are amazing, together we are stronger - remember this, we are all here for each other.

, I hope you are well, just wanted to remind you, you said you'd try and sneak Luck Pants over to  - Silverburg is due to have Lumpectomy and lymp node biopsy later on today. We will be thinking of you and waiting for you when you get back - be easy and kind on yourself.... make sure you rest!!!

Sending love and best wishes to all xxxx
