    Just a line or two..................

    Whoever you are... wherever you are in the world... whoever you're with... whether it's on your own, with family, friends... at home or under care... however much you're struggling with your loved one(s) & the circumstances you find yourselves in this season; may Christmas Day be a time you can experiance peace & a time you are able to enjoy in the best way you can.

    Merry Christmas.

    Darren.

    Merry Xmas everyone and hope you all have a good day. As Darren says perfectly, "however much you're struggling with your loved one(s) & the circumstances you find yourselves in this season; may Christmas Day be a time you can experiance peace & a time you are able to enjoy in the best way you can." That's my plan anyway ;) thanks Darren.

    Happy Christmas to everyone at TP ....

    I had a nice long, trouble free visit with my mother yesterday.... That's the best Christmas gift that I got this year.

    Love,

    Thank you for your seasonal wishes, Darren. Have a peaceful day too and my best wishes to all here. Your chats are a great help and comfort.

    For the first time in over a year, we were able to take my Mum out of the EMI unit for a couple of hours and she was so relaxed and happy. Waved her ice-cream spoon and wafer, (which she wanted to take back to her 'hotel') at the passing traffic and insisted she would be driving again soon. A special day for us and her grandchildren.

    With kind wishes

    Merry Christmas Darren and everyone on TP from me too.

    Went to see Steve today in the assessment unit in the hospital and he was happy and cheerful and talking about work the whole time we were there. He thinks he still works as a kitchen fitter. On Saturday when I went we had tears but today he was happy, the only tears today were from my Mum who hasn't seen him since August. Steve may be leaving there next month (fingers crossed) to go to a lovely home 2 miles away from our home so that will be wonderful if he gets funded.

    Happy Christmas to one and all.

    Love Sue x

    Merry Chrismas Darren.

    My Xmas day isn't the best as Grandad got admitted to a nursing home on Friday but I am trying to be strong and "normal" for my children.

    Love and best wishes to all TP members x
