    This morning was chemotherapy morning again. I felt a little better again today and managed to make a big bolognese sauce. There will be plenty for tomorrow and plenty for freezing.

    I was able to concentrate on cross stitch so I spent quite a lot of time in the sun room enjoying the peace and quiet and slowly stitching away.

  2. Family rift because of theft allegations

    My aunt in 84 and lives next door to my mother 82. My aunt has dementia which has gradually appeared over the past 2 years.
