Hi everyone it's been a long time since I have visited you all and I have to say I have missed you all , just a quick update janes arthritis has got progressively worse and I care for her full time now and she has a hospital appointment in April to see if they can replace her knuckles as her fingers are practically closed now bless her :grouphug: , I still continue to grow my stuff and brew my gear mmmmmmm :drunken: , still haven't lost any weight :iconbiggrin: too much good food to eat just about to tuck into my Burns supper and a dram of 16yr old longmorn or two :oops:, I hope to catch up with all our old friends and make some new ones over the new year, so here's raising my glass to you all belated as it is, good health and best wishes

Welcome back Russ, you have been sorely missed.
Sorry to hear about the Missus, getting old is a right bugger and ought to be outlawed (in my opinion)
I'm still growing all our own veg and now getting ready to start another year's sowing.
Anyway, very nice to see you again.
Tony

Hi Russ. Sorry to hear that Jane's condition is progressing. Seems like you're in better health though. Welcome back.

Ah you must have been one of the great weight loss debate group! Good to see you back but not good that the lady in your life is too sufficient in arthritis.

Hi Russ, looks like we arrived back on the same bus! I'm now a carer for my Jackie, still do the veggie thing, etc. I reckon I'll see you around on here.
it's either one or the other, or neither of the two.
