Hi there. Back at work and having my phone back, the jolly thing was sitting on my desk when I came in this morning. No one txted me over the weekend!! Imagine that, not being as popular as I thought, sigh!! It is a really bright day today and I have to have my curtains shut as my desk faces the north and the sun is too bright on my eyes against the screen.  Just want you to know I am thinking of you, I hope that tomorrow is a better day with having a rest from the drugs. Lots of love and positive vibes. Brenda

Thinking of you all - be strong. love and best wishes.

Well hello there Gardiners, our computer is up and running again, turns out that it had a lose cable in the back, doh!  What can I say during this time but that you are all in our thoughts every day and prayers every night.  Korie needed a blood test this morning and when his eyes watered during the needle part I couldn't help but think of the many times Rory has had to endure endless poking and proding over the last few months.  Korie is having the day off today and is sitting in the sun playing with some fake blood (from my vampire outing last weekend) he has just informed me that someone shot his hand and it is covered in fake but very real looking blood!  Ahhh, boys and gorssness, what would one be without the other?!  Gordon and I bumped into Grannie and Sam in Whangarei on Saturday, Sam was very quick to recognise me and we stopped to chat.  Take care, love, hugs and wellness to you all xox Kathryn and Korie
