What no free stuff to download!!!

I’m no good with celebrating anniversaries (ask Beth!) but I knew why I’ve been feeling really weird lately.
Probably prompted by all the famous deaths this year I worked out I had Pancreatic Cancer exactly 10 years ago and was having what may have been my last Christmas and New Year before the big operation in early January. Obviously I’m still here but it certainly has changed my whole outlook on life, it’s basically a demon that has never gone away.
So I feel blessed and bloody lucky that they got it in time; Dr. Sheen and all at Ward 9 in MRI saved my life!
Sorry for that outpouring!
I wish all my friends, followers and contributor (Mike B) and in particular Bethan and my long suffering Mum and Dad a very heartfelt New Year……………………….. Everyday counts; I need to live a bit more by this rule!
