I haven’t been on GOY very much in the last 3 months I will be looking forward to catching up in the new year .

The reason for this absence my Brother-In-Law was diagnosed with cancer of the neck in September he was admitted into a Hospice an amazing place where they treated him wonderfully well ,we spent many weeks visiting him I’m afraid he eventually lost the battle his funeral was held on Monday .A very sad time for us all .
Not only that when we arrived home thisTuesday a friend had been trying to ring us to tell us our friend his wife had also passed away at the weekend . more sadness !

Each and every one of you enjoy Chrismas with your loving families , don’t worry about getting it perfect ,just be there for each other … Amy xx

All good wishes for the New Year 2014 x

Perfect sentiments Amy and I am so sorry to hear about your friend especially after the distress of Edgar. We all need the care and love of each other and without my friends on GoY and especially you Amy, my life would be so much emptier. Take care and don't overdo things, it's a time for peace and reflection too. xX

Thank you all so much for your kind words ,it's very comforting to know there are people who care in this materialistic world , Janey you have helped us through a difficult time with comforting words even though you have been suffering yourself for that both Tony and myself would like to say a big thank you from the bottom of our hearts , also Carole & Sandra for being there for us .....
Love to you all xx

You're so right that the main thing about Christmas is everyone "being there for each other". I've found that it's so much more relaxing to be imperfect in all that I do :)

I'll be thinking of you Amy, and send you a big hug. x

sorry to hear your sad news. i'm always amazed at how peaceful and serene hospices are, they are amazing places. thinking of you over Christmas. you are so right we shouldn't stress over the small things, we should just be grateful that we are spending it with loved ones.
