Lovely picture DL can't believe you just did a long haul flight, you look as fresh as a daisy! Do you turn left on the plane by any chance?

Have a simply wonderful time! No restrictions on you at all! Are the lupins out. I love lupins and the too blue to be true lakes.

Yes I did. I treated myself 3 years ago when I came out, and once you’ve done it there’s no way back! Plus it’s only me, and it’s not as if I do it every year (then I might have to rethink), so the extra cost is worth it. Don’t think my back and knee would cope!

I think the journey would be awful unless you could stretch out. Korean Air was the cheapest by far and really great .We go to Oz just after Christmas. New Year fireworks at Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Hel thinks that Freya should just sit back, relax.

One country I always wanted to see, especially since I still keep in touch with a Kiwi who lifted my spirits many moons ago when we worked together. Her marriage broke down and l gave her a room and she made it through the rough time and then saved like made and made it home.

Many friends have made the journey and each and everyone one has been told, "do not come back without seeing Milford Sound". They all did and loved it.

Have a lovely time and I am wishing you a healthy 2018 and onwards.............

Thank you.

I’ve been a bit “quiet” on this site recently as Dr Hughes is planning more blood tests to investigate the possibility of Lupus and/or RA with perhaps a degree of PMR, but maybe not as I’m “too young”, and my “hands are involved”. After seeing him privately on 14th October, he wanted to do the tests on the NHS, but all my appointments have been cancelled until 5th January so I’ve felt a bit in limbo. Meanwhile my wonderful mum, best friend and number one support passed away at the beginning of November. She really “got” this condition (whatever it is..) and tolerated my “bear with a sore head” days!

Thinking of you in New Zealand. xx

Hmm - remind him to speak to Sarah Mackie - who has found PMR affects hands (did mine too) and I was a whole 51...
