Thank you ,thank you,thank you,thank you....................Richard

.................................................... Four big thank you's

First of all a UGE BIG thank you to all of you who have so far read and commented on my blog 'Were you born in the 1930's.40's,50's,60's,70's, early eighties.''.

The response has been phenominal.I think every decade was represented.

Isn't it nice to have such a friendly site where we can all share our memories and give support to each other when we are feeling a bit down,console each other in times of need and to be able to cheer each other up .also to share our personal medical issues and maybe pass on advice when asked.

Ther are so many of you out there that are truly caring and for that I also say THANK YOU.

Second .I would like to thank my my Doctor for taking the Patient Participation Group and the surgery staff out for a get to know you and a thank you dinner,We went to a restaurant called the Red Hot World Buffet in Nottingham,what an experience,it is colossal,cuisine stations from

8-9 different countries.The majority of the food being cooked for you in front of you..Starter ,main course ,sweet and you can return to the buffet as many times as you like.

Lovely staff,smart uniforms and very polite.A superb evening.

This was only the second time I had been out to a restaurant for an evening meal in 17 years!

I felt in safe hands with the doctor being present!

Third.I would like to thank my niece .On friday morning my wife received a phone call from nieceshusband that his wife had lost her mobile phone(once again) but they thought it was somewhere in the house but could not find it and had to go to work ,could we please go to the house and see if we could find it.Oh yes only £500 worth of her works mobile phone.

We ,went we searched we found under the cushion on the sunlounger in the garden.

She was so relieved as this would have been the sixth one lost over the last year,scatter brain at times,always has the ringtone turned off.As a thank you we were invited to a BBQ yesterday.

Fourth I would like to thank everyone who is participating in and supporting BREATHE EASY WEEK this week.



Abig thank you to all of you who have joined Breathe Easy and the British Lung Foundation

    You did get a terrific response,to your blog on the old days,good on you!

    My little memory bank,remembers off& out on our bikes all day,going to the beach,tadpoleing,trying to stay awake,to have a midnight feast with friends,same as they did in the famous five! Helping Grampa,in his beautiful garden,bird watching with my Uncle& collecting birds eggs.Train spotting with my older brother,whom knew all about every train!

    Grandpa made his elderberry wine, & mead,also the honey from his hives,I had to collect jars for him.Gran was a great cook,& gave me my love of cooking.

    It was an ideallic childhood,with very loving Grandparents,for myself,& older brother & sister,the only blight being we rarely saw our parents, but that's another story...

    Anyway,that's my late contribution!

    Hope you enjoyed the BBQ as well,you are getting to be a gad about!!

    Love Wendells xxx

  • I loved every bit of my meal and have enjoyed everyones blog a bout memories and I hope they keep them coming
