Spent the last few mins trying to post, got all done then a pink ribbon came on saying I'm not allowed to post the one i had just written!!!!!

Wanted to say hello to all of my HU buddies, and also the new people that has joined.

My time out has been trying to fend off a chest infection plus other ailments not connected to lungs.

I wish all a lovely day (even with the rain)...,

I'm going to try again to send photo

With love to all my HU family.

lol thanks Sheila I did have a chuckle at my gender change 😅.

So sorry you are not good Sheila, it really is time of the year, I don't like winter.

Will just have to keep warm ( not go out ) and keep all germs at bay.

Hope you feel better soon, take care.

Love Sheila

Hi Wendells

Yes feeling better thank you, just takes time.

Yes they are his medals, ( your eyesight is ok )

He was at the reunion with pals from his old regiment, so it will have been quite a night...

Wish I was there, need sun and warmth.

My brother keeps asking when am I going back to visit him.... As much as I would like to don't know if I am able.✈️......

Hope you are keeping well with love and hugs

We have plenty of sunshine here,in Qld.think the Royals went the wrong place!

Im like you in reverse,can't fly back to the UK anymore.Last time went with 02,but not really successful,specialist said very strongly,no more flying or cruising😟,so not willing to take chances!

Take care,

Hi etch, hope ur feeling better, lovely pic of ur son, my kids are my proudest acheivment. Take care xx Sonia xx


I think we all think & know that our children are our proudest achievement Sonia. On the Order of Service for Mike's funeral recently our son & daughter had the quote " Our father gave us the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in us." He was so proud of them both, as am I, & it worked both ways. Our children & Grandchildren are so precious aren't they ?


I like to think my kids are my proudest aheivment also Sonia, what better legacy to leave behind eh!

Thanks yes I have turned the corner and get better each day.

Take care and keep well

Love etch45

Hello etch, the same thing has been happening to me. I find if I wait a second then press submit, the post will go. Sometimes you need to press a few times, but mostly mine go the second time.

You son is a lovely looking chap, all those medals too. You must be absolutely bursting with pride.


Hi Azur sorry for the delay in replying, I'm just coming in and out.... Trying to get back into the swing of things slowly.

I have turned the corner but still feeling a little off.

Go back to hospital soon for my scan, hope I get good news.

Take care love to you

Etch45 xxx😀

You must be so proud. Sorry your not feeling well. Seems to be a lot of people

sick. Hope you'll be feeling better soon.

I got my flu jab Monday night. Didn't

seem to bother me much. Mostly made me very tired. But got my uti back.

Can't win no how! Take care Etch and feel better.

One day Ruby I may just may wake up and go eureka !!!!! Pain and germ free.... Lol

Can dream eh! 😀

Hope you get over your uti soon Ruby it's so uncomfortable.

Yes I am very proud of my son Ruby, but glad he is out of the army.

Take care love
