Sending love to all of your family, hoping your daughter improve, and glad you had some fun with your granddaughters.

Been on shore leave for a while, looking after the grandaughters while mummy is feeling poorly.But my thoughts have been on the crew and hoping for good health and good news for you all, as anniversary dates have come and bought tears but also happy memories.

Thank you Maeve for the special thoughts, much love to Pete, Janie, Mary and of course Nigel and Ann.

As the health of my daughter is still uncertain I am thinking I may need respite care for my mother so, just in case, I visited a nursing home on Friday last. The only one in the area that had been recommended! ( I did do a reccy 3 years ago and the homes I saw were horrendous) However this one is like a 5 star hotel and ticks all the boxes. The good news is they have a dementia club once a week so mum can go from 11 till 4 and enjoy the activities etc. Then if we do need respite she will be familiar with the surroundings and staff. One more step forward?

On a happy note Billy and I took the little girls to their first barn dance on Saturday and they loved it, danced every dance!Plus the band were Skinners Rats so Bunny and Pru were delighted to see "Uncle" Barry playing his violin.Happy Days

Sailing on

Much love Wendy xxxxxxxx

Our Very Dear Pete...Janie is right...Katherine is in a safe place where she will be cared for, 24/7. Her recovery will almost certainly take a while. Progress is usually made in tiny increments with recovery & relapse going hand in hand, but ultimately, recovery will triumph.Your love & patience will be rewarded. There are many of us on 'The Rainbow' who are thinking of you & Katherine at this very moment...know that we are here.

Yes, ChanteyLass, 'bittersweet' is a word that sums up the day perfectly, but our mood was by no means melancholy. We were greatly cheered at lunchtime to discover that two good friends of ours who used to run "The Best Café in Town" & were forced out of business by some extremely suspect property deals, have taken over the café in our local library. Yesterday's lunch was a happy time, with much 'catching up' & free cups of coffee.

Thanks Pete...new works have been a bit thin on the ground for several months...totally deserted by my muse (if I ever had one!). I am, however, revisiting a piece I started ages ago & never completed...that happened yesterday too...see, I told you the 9th September was a special day!

Gnu...bless you too.

The 9th September is special...it's Jane's birthday. She would've been 49. Many memories upon which to reflect & just a few too many 'If only...' It's also special because Jane, being the clever lady that she was, managed to give birth to her first child on the 9th too. Her son, now a strapping 25 year old is forging ahead with his career, so we are compelled to look to the future. The balance between "What was" & "What is to come" is a work in progress, but with the passage of time, a balance will be achieved. To complete the picture, my first, late Wife's birthday was also the 9th September. If I were a numerologist, I'd be having a field day!

                   Much Love to You All,
                                                    Nigel & Ann.

Here's a generally positive report to help lift the mood.

Our family (four siblings) fell apart to some degree when our parents died within six months of each other in 1997-98. One sibling is a sociopath and made life hell for a couple of years. It caused a general chilling effect for the rest of us, and hard feelings from the trouble he stirred up. It took a long time before I was finally able to ask the other two "what were you thinking?" about some of their actions in response to the youngest's tumult.

I think we've all lost track of the youngest, he has separated himself and isolated his child and former partner from our family, but we wish him well. I am grateful that the other three of us are back to being on good terms. When my nephew turns 18 I'll reach out and offer our friendship, and hope his view of the rest of us hasn't been poisoned by his father's behavior. I bring this up now because my recently-graduated son has moved to start a new job in the area where my brother and sister live, and they have welcomed him with open arms and good advice, in those few occasions when it seemed suitable to offer it.

It's good when you can put [most of] your family back together.

SRS

Gnu, I agree absolutely, but I've been wondering recently if some of us are suffering from what might be termed: "Thread Fatigue"? To quote your words: "I think just being here or checking up when one can is contributing to the journey and crew. We're all in the same boat eh?
    It's all too easy to feel guilty about not contributing/posting. Chasing one's tail for that "Mot Juste". If we do what we can, when we can (guilt-free!), then I see no reason why "Jane's Rainbow" shouldn't continue her voyage for as long as we have breath in our bodies & wind in the sails.

    My Dear Janie...not another word about "pulling your weight" or "earning your keep"...please (-:

    The occasional refresh might be needed, but so be it.

    So, no guilty feelings, no recriminations, we do what we can, when we can, safe in the knowledge that we are members of a crew; a team of likeminded individuals, looking out for each other & ready to respond when Life throws one of those unexpected, curved balls.
                      Much Love & many hugs & kisses to you all,
                                                                                        Nigel.
                                                                                       xxxxxx

Janie,
Guilt is anger turned inward. If you are beating yourself up over not posting often enough (by your standards) here, take a good hard look at what is going on in your life. Why are you angry? Who is the culprit? Sort it out and be kinder to yourself.

Meantime, I am mourning the loss of my youngest brother. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and died less than a month later. One day he working full time and fine, the next he was bedridden and wasting away. Never let a day go by without telling the people you love that they are precious to you.

Wendy, enjoyed seeing the photos of your Mother's Birthday. Very pleased to read that you decided against the full 91 candles. Just lighting them would have taken forever! Getting the right medication & the right dosage for your Samantha might take time. I've learned over the years that Pharmacology is not an exact science. It is my earnest wish that she makes a steady, well managed recovery. I fully endorse your comments about the NHS. Ann & I have had to make increasing use of many NHS clinics, consultants, our lovely GP, as the ageing process has ploughed an ever-deepening furrow. The NHS has, more than once, saved both our lives.

Ok, I'm off to the galley to meet gnu for my first lesson in backwards eating.
                                     Much Love to You All,
                                                                      Nigel & Ann.

Yes, good news to hear of the prompt attention. We all, I assume, wonder about "the system's" response going in. Traumatic in itself.

Brekky? Thanks but no need, darlin.... it shall be the same fare I ingested at 6AM today. A large bowl of beef stew. I eat backwards in increasingly small amounts every two hours. Try it... it's good for you.
