  • Hey Kittie!

    I won't be able to make the patient day this time I am going on hols on the 2nd! I am sorry to be missing it as I always enjoy meeting and talking with fellow Teal warriors (as DM calls us) !

    I hope you are feeling a bit better and I hope that we might be able to organise another coffee morning in Dublin sometime soon!

    Mind yourself and enjoy the patient day!


  • Hi D, I am sorry you won't be able to make the Patients Day but it will be on line a couple of weeks later. I hope you have a great holiday well deserved. I have a chest infection and I am on antibiotics at the moment it just seems one thing after the other, but us warriors just get on with it. Kittie
