A little explanation!

Hello again, I'm sorry that I haven't been able to post regularly lately but 2012 is turning out to be a bit of a roller coaster for me. As you probably know if you follow this blog we have been coping with building work since last October, almost through it now but still plenty to do. Whilst this has been going on my mother who has dementia injured her hip and ended up in hospital, the help that she has required eats up a large part of my time and then (they say things always come in threes) I discovered that I have my own problems! I have been suffering with a painful back since October it transpires that I have advanced Osteoporosis and the pain is from a collapsing spine and multiple fractures. I had cancer when I was 26 years old and the Osteoporosis is directly linked to this, it was a bit of a shock to say the least as I am not yet 60 but I am determined to continue with my life style as I love what I do. So I hope that those of you who enjoy this blog will forgive me for being a little erratic of late and will continue to check out this site. It's great to know that I have contact with all of you so thanks.

I've been dreaming of a holiday and revisited a trip to Italy that I had a few years ago these are some of my memories.

 Fantastic Florence (Fiorenze).

Stunning Sienna.

Lovely Lucca.

Many many more wonderful memories and then,

back home to my peaceful garden.
I have so many things to be thankful for.

Have a great Easter break if you are lucky enough to have one.
