I don't want you to get bored looking at me and hubby in the garden last year, so I'll show it to you in the daylight, my refuge where the foxes wander.
There is not much that many of you don't know about me now, I enjoy a good laugh and if I can find one I will. If I can make someone smile my day is complete. I enjoy people and people watching but do not suffer fools easily, mainly because my dad told me I would be one when I grew up, and I think he may have been right.
I was born in Yorkshire and the extended family are still there but we now live in Staffordshire, we being my husband of 33 years and our two sons, well one of them has left and lives with his partner a girl whom we love dearly.
My latest hobby is writing and from this I am learning a great deal from and about people, that write.
My latest, latest thing to keep me occupied is making myself a nice new fleece top, it's getting cold and my old one; which must be 12 years old has had to be sent to a better place and I miss it already RIP>

To The Nurses I Know and Trust to say a big thankyou .
Blog Posted:6/22/2013 12:05:00 PM


About NURSES: Somebody asked: "You're a nurse? That's cool, I wanted to do that when I was a kid. How much do you make?" The nurse replied: "HOW MUCH DO I MAKE?" ... I can make holding your hand seem like the most important thing in the world when you're scared. ... I can make your child breathe when they stop. ... I can help your father survive a heart attack. ... I can make myself get up at 5 a.m. to make sure your mother has the medicine she needs to live. ... I work all day to save the lives of strangers. ... I make my family wait for dinner until I know your family member is taken care of. ... I make myself skip lunch so that I can make sure that everything I did for your wife today is charted. ... I make myself work weekends and holidays because people don't just get sick Monday thru Friday. ... Today, I might save your life. ... How much do I make? All I know is, I make a difference. Re-post not only if you are a nurse or you love a nurse, but most importantly, re-post this if you respect their work.

    The care and love that I have experienced with nurses during my losses have been wonderful. These people give more that you can ever know. Their work is so important and not to be taken for granted. Cheers to the nurses!!

    My wife passed away 5/7/13 from pulmunary/heart problems. During the last 9 months of her life, every nurse involved in her hospital care could not have been more caring and concerned. The 5 nurses who handled her anti-body infusion (9 months/7 days a week)were especially concerned. 3 of them attended her wake and funeral. They asked that I call them when I get home (currently at my son's home in Utah to recover from the sadness) as they would like to check on how I'm doing! So kudos to these, and all nurses, for their outstanding service. My utmost respect to them all! God bless them.
