Ok, so here's the thing..... Of course I'm grateful. Grateful for the new lease of life I've been given; for the amazing care at the hospital; the wonderful messages from friends; the visitors who've come to cheer me up; the constant, un-ending support from John.

There are days when it's suddenly ten o'clock and all I've done is feed the birds. It's wonderful. it is also … Continue reading Croeso i Myddfai
