Nice one Mark. Many thanks.
Hey all you Angels on earth. I am so sorry if what I said has upset you in any way. Then perhaps for you. My tales of a wonderful life with Val, turned into one of those weepy films, sagas. We had spent some fifty years together. We were closely getting to our 49th wedding anniversary. Sadly Val never woke up from heart surgery. Her epitaph reads. Valerie Rose Allen. 14.2.1944 to. 9.6.2010 Our 49th Anniversary would have been 22 September. During all those years. Hand on heart. We never had a row. Yes! at times, we might disagree, but at the end of the day. Val respected my God given headship. Believe me. I must hold the world record for say sorry. Especially when important decisions had to be made. Val would give her consent. Very soon thereafter. Mike would craddle her head in my hands and say. Sorry, sweetheart. You was right. I was wrong. On the otherhand. I have to admit. I really had a fear of myself. My mum and dad were very Victorian. Dad was born July 2 1896. Mum was born 3 July 1897. Mum, bless her. really wrapped me up in cotton wool. She fought all of my childhood battles. Dad was strict military. Strong willed well disciplined. He servered in both world wars. Gassed and blinded for a time in the first. It wasn't until I actually got married. Then it seemed he treated me as a man. I had an elder sister. She was sixteen years my senior. By the time I got to know her. She was married. Nevertheless, we both loved each other so much. Sadly she died of leukemia. She suffered from psoriorsis, she had hospital treatment, The treatment destroyed her blood cells. So friends. You now know a bit more that relates to Mike.
Once again. I really , truly appreciate so much your concern for me at this this time. Despite the fact that, years, I wanted to train and become a doctor. Being that I was so overwhelmed at the human reproductive system. I set my sights on Obs & Gynea. Sadly. My education let me down, also the lack of finances. Nevertheless. I studdied a great deal privately. I am a devil for learning. I have studied civil law, police law, homeopathy, horticulture. Tracey. I mentioned your post regarding me writing a book, to Amanda. She insists on taking me to and from the hospital. I do the same for her. So dear fair lady. Who knows. Perhaps soon there might be a book.
Back to reallity. I don't need an alarm clock. So this morning Mike was wide awake. Although I was within the time limits. I turned away from food and drink. Nice relaxing shower. Then I nodded off in the armchair. Awakened by the phone, plus a raging headache. My hospital appointment was for 11.45 We were ther about 11.00 Others in the waiting area were drinking water. This was in the CT Scan area. Eventually a large but jovial balck nurse or whatever her grade was, comes out. Michael. Fill this form in for me please. Usual questions regarding alergies. One was. Are you allergic to iodine. I ticked the no box. Returning the form I asked. Hey lass! how can I answer that question? She then told me that sea food, shellfish and....and strawberries all contain iodine.. I love fish. I so often cook up scampi and chips. The only time I like strawberries is. If I am picking them. One for you.....two for me. So Mike the expert, learned something new. So the clo
