Happy Saint David;s Day

Yesterday was a wonderful Spring day

Today as its the 1st Day of Spring - its very light drizzle which drowns you

We do have a few daffodils out though and still the Snowdrops thrive

According to the weather this morning the north of England has snow showers & we may get sleet

Always a pleasure when you visit - I have been feeling very lonely as our thread seems to be falling in to the doldrums

Lovely to have you back Sue

Hi Everyone

I am so sorry to have been missing for so long but we are up and down the big smoke so much before and after Christmas ...up again tomorrow ,Hubby has had a few opp's lately but all is sounding good for the future.

We did come to Uk for Christmas and stayed four weeks but with all the rellies I have we were on the go all the time so sorry we did not get a chance to meet up with any of you I would have loved too.

We left UK nice and cold but ever since we got home to Western Australia we have had a heat wave 40c+ the last week and after Jan 4th when we got home it has been in the high 30c so we have been in the Aircom most of the time .

Anyway it is nice to see you all well and i will be on a bit more in the future ....must get back to my tree again too and i was happy to read about Evelyn 's tree Cynthia.

Love to you all
Suex

I don't contribute much to this thread but often look in to see what is happening.

Unfortunately nothing has happened for a couple of weeks and I just hope everyone is OK.

Very Sad

One of Sally's family has also sent me a message - i will be emailing her tomorrow

We did notice at the time Sylvia - but with her husband so ill I didn't like to pester her too much - I also thought if something had happened i would leave it a decent length of time before I tried emailing her.

At least we have all been thinking about her on & off anyway

I think we will all miss her & her little comments

so now we know ...........

our old friend Cynthia did some digging (ie, Googling), and found the following ..........

-------
I think I have found out about Sally Whittington. Sad news - incredibly sad for their family.

WHITTINGTON SALLY & ROGER of Bourne. Sadly Sally passed away in Peterborough City Hospital on 26th May also her beloved husband Roger in The Cedars, Bourne on 27th May 2015. Much loved parents of David & Debby and devoted grandparents of Chloe, Sam & Sophie.

Their Funeral Service will take place at South Lincolnshire Crematorium on Thursday 11th June at 11.00am. Family flowers only. Donations, if desired, for Cancer Research UK may be sent to T.R.Carlton Funeral Directors, 35b Abbey Road, Bourne.

Marriages Dec 1964 (>99%)

DENLEY Sally D WHITTINGTON Willesden 5f 398
WHITTINGTON ROGER B DENLEY WILLESDEN 5F 398

------


If I found the correct birth registration last night for Sally, she was born in late 1945/early 1946 ....... so she was only 69/70

SylviaInCanada Report 27 Jan 2016 22:34

we've been very bad ................

I just checked back, and Sally last posted in May last year, and none of us noticed :-(


Reece ............. nice to see you posting! You'll be flying along soon in that new scooter of yours :-D

Reece Report 26 Jan 2016 15:37

Dear friends, such sadness for all of us. I wondered about Sally too, and Susan and if she finally got to visit the UK as she hoped. I hope she did and found the snow also.

I made my maiden voyage on my new motability scooter this morning, before the rain came, accompanied by my very helpful son walking beside me. So now I hope to get out a bit more when the weather improves.

I do an occasional piece of research and am now going back to a Morris one that is still puzzling me.

Hoping that you are all well and that we hear something of missing friends soon.

Love and best wishes, Reece <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Oh Sylvia I am so sorry to hear your news - at least you had some time with her

Sending calm healing thoughts over to you both

I am sure she is at Peace now & looking over you both

We started to get very quiet on the thread from the Summer -

I am really worried about Sally though she hasn't been on any of her threads & she always nipped in & out a bit

Not sure if I should put one on the General Thread to see if anyone had heard from her.

I know Cynthia seems to spend a lot of time on FB & one of the other threads on here

Would have been nice to know Sue was here even if she was a long way away from me - no chance of me ever visiting her neck of the woods

SylviaInCanada

SylviaInCanada Report 20 Jan 2016 21:24

I was only thinking about Sally yesterday.

Does anyone have a contact for her??

I don't.



Anne ......... I think we're all busy and also trying to recover from Christmas and the January doldrums

We're also feeling pretty down ................. we lost our best friend on Saturday after a 2½ month battle with pancreatic cancer.

She's the one we were with over Christmas. We'd been friends since we arrived here in 1968

Its very lonely on here now

Poor little thread seems to have been abandoned

Has anyone heard from or about Sally - getting quite worried about her

Hope everyone else is well

yes, a sad day, although I never really took to Bowie's music .............. I'm a little too old I think :-)

Nice to see you Robert. Hope all is going well in the shell, and you are not too cold or too wet.


Our friend is in her last days. She's now sleeping all the time, and asked for a No Visitors, Staff Only policy to be instituted (and no phone calls). We were thinking of going over this coming weekend, but will not do so now ................

I'm waiting for a referral to a gastroenterologist to have a "camera down the throat". It's about 12 years since I last had a check-up after having an oesophageal ulcer and my GP thinks it's time to have one. The guy I used to see has retired so they have to find someone they think I will like and who does not have a long waiting list!

I see David Bowie has now passed from us - so very talented - never realized how old he was when i was younger .- i thought he was a lot older than me .

Reminds me of the day Freddie Mercury died - same sort of conversations

We were talking about his music here in the office this morning - a lot of the younger ones don't tend to know much about him - makes me feel quite old

Happy New year

Lovely to see you again Robert - hope the shell is cozy in the storms - floods & gales

Cynthia - great to have you back - sorry to hear about your OH - I hope things improve soon

Anyone heard from Sue -

My F in L seems to go through a new phase every 5-6 weeks -

The first one we noticed was when he had not taken part in any conversation - even when we tried talking to him - he just sat staring at the photos on the wall - then we had the same 4 questions asked over & over again -

We got the old photos out to go over with him - but he wasn't interested

The next visit we had the holiday memories, which was quite fun & he & Oh had a good time talking about the cars they shared , especially when he was learning to drive -

Now he has decided he likes to try out his favorite big band tunes on us all the time - My poor M in L gets it all day - the carers enjoy it when they visit - they keep asking him if they can give him requests .

Told M in L she should do the same for variety - he does occasionally get a lucid moment - i think she has given up trying to watch any programmes on the TV if its not a one off.

i wished him happy Christmas & gave him his present - he didn't know what Christmas was but knew what to do with the chocolates & sweets i gave him - he did have a few words with us too - when we said goodbye he thanked us for the gifts & visiting & how nice it was to see us again - just as we were leaving the room he asked Mum - who were that young couple do i know them?

Oh is feeling quite upset now when we go for a visit as its not his dad any more - he said he never thought he would feel like that & its upsetting to see him. I feel the same as he use to be the senior manager & i was his PA - I remember the good old days - he use to blast people out of his office regularly.

I saw the working side of him that his family didn't.

Yes i did marry the bosses son - but not when i was working for him - after i was promoted i went to another office & his son was moved to the office for promotion reasons & the rest is history. Its a lot longer story but that can be another time .
