Thank you thank you for all your kind words and thoughts, you are truly friends l can rely on,now words might come out a bit junmbled up as my thoughts and my head are all over the place so please excuse me while l try to be normal Dave had his bloods done today and a chest Xray he has his pre op on Wednesday morning and on the afternoon he has his MRI and they have given him a date for his surgery on the 29 of this month it is all moving very quickly which is good but also very scary.this is not a place l want to be l want to be a million miles away but l can not. Dave went in to work his morning to tell them and to pick up his tools as he is on a new job on Monday it is a new hospital at Nottingham well the head of the office phoned me to say they just heard where Dave is working it is a cancer unit,they gave him the choice and he said he will work there how ironic.

I pray your husband's test results turn out well. I am sure it is very scary for you. Your outfits turned out lovely. And your suntop and capris look adorable with the hat and bag. You did a terrific job!!! Thank you for letting me know about them!

Praying for good outcomes and strength for you and your family. BEAUTIFUL cards and dresses. In my opinion, there is nothing so sweet as a baby in a smocked anything!

Those cardis, and clothes are just beautiful, and it's lovely to see real smocking!
Sending all my love, hope, and strength to you both! As has been said before, we are all here for you !

Hi Pat
Thanks for your comment regarding the elderflower cordial - I used granulated sugar but either would do. Had some problems with getting the right bottle and it not cracking when I sterilised them! Ended up using apple juice bottles, and yes you do need to dilute it when you've made it. If you want me to email the recipe, just let me know.
Hope that helps!
