Thank you so much, Audrey, Alison and frauj. It always seems so hard when cancer comes back after the patient has a period of being clear.

Also sending good thoughts. What an awful thing.

Prayed for her this morning at Mass, Noreen.

As you say, it's always hard when the thing returns. My sister has just undergone six months of chemo, her breast cancer having returned after 15 years. Bit of a shock, that!

You all helped me when I had it, so sending the most immense good wishes to your friend's sister, and curses to her cancer.

Jennie, thank you so much for reminding me of that time - and I'm sure it's something you'd rather not have raised, so I appreciate it the more - I wonder whether my friend and her family might try the same approach...

Noreen, I now have no qualms about mentioning that I've had cancer. I think it's part of completing my growing-up. (About time too, I can hear my sons saying).

So, my wishes for for your friend's sister are wholeheartedly sincere.

I felt better for knowing that people were cursing my nasty tumour, so do try it. Just let me know her forename, and the curses will fly.

Apologies for not posting an update sooner (I've had other things on my mind), but sadly my friend S's youngest sister HJF has died. My former neighbour J has also died, but at least she made a good age (94) and had a good last year living at what is probably the best residential care home in the area. In both cases, good sums of money were raised for the nominated charities.

My deepest thanks to all those of you who helped with prayers and positive thoughts - it really was appreciated.

I could just do with some 'cheer up, Chattie, it'll be worth it in the long run" thoughts.

We're now three weeks into having the whole house rewired; one more week (hopefully) to go, followed by a week of plasterers, followed by a week of moving back half our belongings from storage, followed by goodness knows how many months of getting the house redecorated. It's a job we've been putting off doing for the last 10 or so years but finally bit the bullet on. It's just getting to me a bit that we're living in chaos with parts of ceilings down, parts of floorboards up, parts of walls goudged out, vast quantities dust and dustsheets everywhere and having to wipe down worksurfaces etc every night unless we opt for takeways. My daughter even had to move out to her boyfriend's this week as we had only one usable bedroom left. I know it *will* be worth it but on top of work pressures, I could just do with some 'hang in there' positive thoughts to keep me going...

Any renovation work is really demoralising, I find ... even a simple room redecoration causes chaos throughout the rest of the house, so having to have everywhere affected whilst still living in it fills me with horror! But it always seems worse at that point just before the end - a sort of 'darkest before the dawn' idea, so hang in there, Chattie! Grit your teeth, 'cos it will be worth it in the end!
