Its been a while

Hey Lovelies

So sorry I’ve been off the radar for a bit. A lot has happened since I was made redundant…obviously the whole coping with the redundancy, my mammy had 2 life saving operations, I lost my Gran (she was a huge part of our lives) and a whole host of other cr**p

I haven’t been following posts so hope that everyone is as well as they can be. Anyway, I just thought I’d pop my head in.

Hello Oonagh.

Nice to hear from you again. That all sounds a bit traumatic. I hope your mammy recovers well and soon and I hope you can take comfort in the emergence of spring and the lighter evenings.

Best wishes, Steve.

Awwww, thanks so much for your kind words everyone. My mammy has now made a full recovery…she’s an amazing woman

As for me, I now have the delights of foot drop and bad spasms at night. I’m now taking baclofen which makes me feel rubbish. I’m now really concentrating on my physio in the hope that I can stop taking it.

I hope you’re all having some lovely weather and getting out there for a good dose of Vit D.

Hi Oonagh. Like the others I’m sorry to hear about what’s happened in your life recently. Glad to hear your mum’s recovering but how sad for you to lose your gran. I hope you settle into your retirement, that alone is a big thing without the rest of your problems. Fingers crossed the physio helps. Take care of yourself.

Thank you for your kind words girls. Cath, retirement sounds so weird I’m only 45 LOL. I live in hope that one day I will be able to work again…I so miss my job. Last year was horrid so I think I’m due a good year. Here’s hoping

Hi Jan, nice to meet you As for my mammy…it’s the geordie and irish in me


I knew it was an Irish thing but hadn’t realised the Geordies used it as an adult I’m only 40ish miles away in Teesside. I remember when news broke of the Tsunami, 2004 Boxing Day I think it was, I was busy in the kitchen with the news on in the background, i’m ashamed to say I misheard and thought The Toon army was misbehaving.

I still say ‘me mam’ which along with ‘our mam’ is the Teesside way.
