It's so good to hear that you're now in a much more positive frame of mind. Your plans sound great and we all wish you well.

Oh what a wonderful thing to do. I'm sure you will be very happy in such a lovely part of the country and obviously one that has such special memories for you.
Well done in taking the plunge. It must be a comfort to have family there for you too. x

That is such good news Jeanette.

You've had so much to contend with in addition to the loss of Gordon, it's wonderful the final scattering of his ashes has given you such a deep feeling of peace.

Please keep in touch with us and let us know when you eventually manage to move back to Nairn. I'm sure it will feel like returning home.
I thought of you when I was doing it. Your special time in India. I hope you felt a similar sense of peace .

Oh what a lovely thing to do, and how poignant. I hope everything goes smoothly for you. You were an absolute rock to me when I was going through such a hard time with John, and I've never forgotten your kindness.

I wish you every happiness in Nairn, where we spent a lovely holiday, nearly 40 years ago. :)

Dear Jeanette,

Thank you so much for writing about your plans; in addition to Gordon's illness and passing you have had so many tragedies to face. Much more than most. I'm glad that you are clear about your plans and I hope that the peace you deserve will be found in Nairn.

Well done Jeanette.

Much love,

Lyn T XX

My recollections of my time on TP are that I was a very needy, floundering carer and received support, love and understanding from all members and fellow carers.

I think you pay me a compliment I don't deserve Scarlett but I am glad if I have managed to giveback some of the love I received.

Goodness - you've beaten the speed of light! I hope everything works out OK for you. Does your brother live nearby? Or will you be moving a distance? I wish you well xxx

Jeanette how great. No time to change your mind.

I hope it gives you the peace you so deserve, once you've done all the rubbish stuff of course. Xxx

It all sounds as if it was meant to be Jeanette. :)

It also sounds like a whirlwind.

Please try to pace yourself , there`ll be so much to do, but I wish you every happiness and hope you`ll keep us informed.

Golly - you've got Izzy beaten for a fast move! :D Well done you - you surely deserve a lovely, peaceful "retirement" in your new home. Wishing you much joy and happiness there for years to come.
