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.
If you would like to follow or comment on this blog, then please feel free.

Back now - sorry it took a while .....
We had an eventfully camping holiday in Saunton, North Devon.
To start with the ground was full of stones, so we bent more tent pegs than not, but we did end up with something resembling Worcester Catherdral
The weather wasn't great but we did have a couple of sunny days, went to the beach and even went bodyboarding (no photos of me, hurray) only Colin, who spent most of Saturday in the sea.
As I said earlier the weather wasn't great, especially the strong winds which managed to break one of our tent poles (not impressed as it was a brand new tent), but after Sue and I did a blue peter repair job on it I think it was a lot stronger than before.
We had some friends join us on the Friday night for the weekend, found a shop that sold Cornish Rattler Cyder, so not the most relaxing holiday I've ever had, but it was fun.
On the way home we took the tent back to the shop and got them to exchange it for a different one.
