Thank you Cliff, and the same to you. I think we could all do with some better health as well. Does the 1960 in your name mean that you have an extra special birthday next year??

Hi Su and @Clilau1960, my plans are - as opposed to saying ‘Oh, I don’t know’, I have said
No surprises
No party
A meal with family
I have been asked what I want from family for presents and I have said
A new Walkman (my other one is worn out)
A DVD player for the bedroom (a bit of luxury)
A globe (my geography is sadly lacking)
An electric toothbrush (to try and avoid oral infections)
Finally
A few days away in this country in the summer
My diagnosis certainly has meant I have looked at myself and my needs !!!
Follow that, Cliff

Great birthday plans @Erica! good to see you treating yourself, why not! :grin: the meal with your family sounds nice! do you usually go out for a meal or is it more of a get together at home? either way, sounds lovely! :smiley:

Happy Christmas to you all. @Clilau1960 @Erica @SuBloodwise

Cliff, I didn’t think I would reach 60, but when I did I arranged a party at a local hotel as a special thank you for family and friends for being there for me, and raised £700+ for Bloodwise.
Erica it is G’s 70th in May, and we will be on Loch Ness on the day.
Whatever 2020 brings, celebrate each day xx

I’d also like to thank everyone for all the support and advice. Things would be a lot tougher without this group. So far only me and my dog up but I’ve been making waffles. Maybe that will wake my teenage sons!

Looking forward to chatting with you all next year. Trying not to be the first to nod off. I have read a book with over 200 pages with my 5 yr old granddaughter. The men prepared a beautiful dinner. My grandson was getting exasperated with me as I didn’t understand something he said and we all burst out laughing when he said “Are you deaf or something?” and then he realised what he had said, because I am :rofl: Happy Christmas everyone

I hope you have all had a joyful Christmas and can relax as a new year creeps up on us! Don’t forget the support services are available all normal over the Xmas & New Year period, expect weekends and bank holidays!
