Hi and Welcome....

The reason for my blog is that Colin had Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma (secondary kidney cancer). In addition to this, his eldest brother David died in April 2008, 5 weeks after being diagnosed with Laryngeal Cancer and his elder sister Sue was diagnosed with Lobular Breast Cancer in March 2009. All that said, I am still smiling and trying to be up beat about everything because if I wasn’t I don’t think I would cope as well as I have so far. Sadly Colin passed away on 23rd Dec 2009.

Butlins, Minehead

We had a nice week away in Minehead, I think we picked the right week for good weather. Colin even went on one of the rides on the funfair.
We went down to Sue's on the Sunday and stayed the night as the holiday was Mon-Fri.

While we were at Butlin's Kieran went on the K2 Experience (Britain’s highest outdoor climbing structure)

It has low ropes, high ropes, leap of faith, zip wire, climbing wall and an absail, he enjoyed the whole thing except the absailing.

After a fairly relaxed week we headed back to Sue's. Because we got to Sue's early afternoon we took a trip to Clark's Village at Street. (which hit the purse hard but saved quite a bit too). We took Holly to her scout camp and on the way back we stopped off at a pub in North Fitzwarren called The Allerford Inn and had a really nice meal at a very reasonable price.
