May 31, 2015 - Operation and recovery

Heather had her gall bladder operation on the 11 May. Everything went fine with no complications except she wasn’t very well with the anaesthetic. She spent one night in hospital and then had two weeks of taking things very easy or “duvet rest” as her consultant advised. Tony did a splendid job of acting as nurse, house maid and dog walker. Slowly during May Heather made a full recovery, no pain, no sickness and feeling a lot better than she had for quite a while. Now all she needed to do was get some fitness back.

Feb 28, 2015 - Major change of plans!

We had had a very enjoyable day with Heather’s cousin’s Jill and Nick on Monday 9 February but little did we know that that night our plans for the summer would change completely. That night Heather experienced severe pains in her chest and stomach so we called an ambulance. At the A&E department they diagnosed it as gastritis and she was discharged.

Jun 12, 2012 - The driving

This day we did a lot of driving and stopping off at different places. The stop that was interesting is the cafe' we went to. It was difficult to get a place to have the dinner menu on becuse we were to late for lunch and to early for dinner and out of all the shops there was one that had the dinner menu up, so we went in there. I had calamari battered and it was lovely afterwards I had a really nice cake and that's all for today.

May 21, 2012 - The abyss

We went to the theme park. I went on the scariest ride in the park. It was called the abyss. I went on it with stefan. It was 185 feet high. It took us 20 seconds to get to the top. This is Daniel signing off. The hair raiser (roller coster) was amazing mostly because Daniel couldn't go on it because he was to short! Me and Stef went on it together and I was screaming so loud but Stef was laughing at me! The best part was the loop the loop and cork screw because they made my tummy go funny, so then I got mum to have a go. Oh my giddy aunt...
