Thanks Lacomtekp sunflowers make me smile on a good day and cry on those emotional days! Today is one of those emotional days, feeling VERY SAD! I don't really know why! Just life I think!!
Brilliant cricket news made the nearly WHOLE day of son and hubby watching it worth while xxx
LondonLass for you xxxxxxx
LondonLass I went to Great Yorkshire Show last week and saw the most beautiful animals. They all spoke to me ( in sheep and cow language ) and they said they all loved you and wanted you to be happy xxx
For some reason I couldn't get this to load on my iPad so took a photo on my phone and then uploaded. Hopefully you can just about read it. I didn't want to leave till tomorrow because by then I will of chickened out! So here it is!!
The true me! Maybe not so strong after all...
Good night Londonlass ( and any other daft enough to be awake like me....). My mum and I just went to the 14th July fireworks.....inspirational but now I'm wide awake. I tried to capture them but my camera wasn't up to it.
Sorry I can't make anything better for you LondonLass but I can thank you again for helping me at my most scared and tell you how valued you are in many areas of your life xxx another hug xxx
sending you the biggest of big hugs! It’s sooooo hard, those regrets one feels......I know our lass will have similar feelings, cancer took that ability from her too, she began treatment in her 20’s and didn’t stop till her late 30’s. It’s a bummer!
But when you look at the way we are wrecking our planet apart from our countryside, I begin to think too.....
anpther humungous (((((hug))))) xxx
Big hugs LondonLass xxxxx
Thanks Optimistic, moomy and seaspirit44. I truly appreciate your hugs and kind words. I know no one can make things better! But allowing myself to admit what’s really bothering me, might just help me to slowly learn to accept how life is now!
I don’t believe for a minute that this will be easy, let’s face it dealing with emotions never is. But knowing I can be open and honest without scaring you all away or for you to tell me to snap out of it and keep my chin up, has helped more than you’ll ever know!
I’ve always been better at listening and offering support and advice! Which I still can. But I realise now that I too need to off load at times and now I know that you Lovely Fruit Loops are here for me too! Thank You xxxx
Now to try and sleep! So far tonight I have failed to drop off!!
Wishing everyone the best week they can, good luck to anyone with treatment or appointments xxx
Sal,(LondonLass) my heart goes out to you, and others that this dreadful disease took away from you the one thing you always wanted to be. But I know that out there are children who were given the greatest start in life because you were their Nanny. We are all here for you, and are so grateful that you are here for us. Xxxx
Love and hugs Jenny xxx

Years ago when all our gang were having babies, one of that gang, had a little boy with a very bad heart. I went to see her and blurted out all the platitudes, including " I know how you feel" . I can still see her face when she said "You don't.You have no idea"
I cannot imagine how sad and angry you are. However close you are to other people's children I know it is not the same. I've taught for 29years and294 days. Some of those were very damaged children from neglect and abuse. The cry was always, if I could just take them home.
You were the first person to welcome me as a fruitIoop I will always be grateful for that. I am sad you feel like this but I'm glad that at least we can all be here for you and the real you. Not just the one that says " I'm fine" and changes the subject.
Sending hugs, love and prayers.
