A river to cross. The outward journey a manageable task, the goal a long stretch of beach opening onto a perfect bay. A favourite of fishermen, but...

So many great lines and images.

Hi Jean

I love the way your writing is 'warts and all'! You write things as they are, both good and bad. But you always end on a positive note.

Hi Jean

What an upleasant experience for you (and Effie). A well written, amusing and informative piece, as usual. You do seem to overcome the trials and tribulations of your condition with great equanimity.

RESPECT!

Hi Jean

You are still sounding very up beat, well done!

Hi Jean

Thanks for the update.

Glad you managed to sort out your worries re the stoma nurse. It seems much of the NHS seems to be farmed out to private companies. My neighbour had a cataract op on the NHS at a private hospital. She...

Hi Jean

Still keeping me smiling, in spite of. Loved your description of Effie's singing. My writing class teacher has a stoma as a result of a ruptured bowel a couple of years ago. Very nasty at the time but now she is fine and is coping...

Hi Jean

In spite of the seriousness of your case you have still the ability to make me smile. Like the formatting, it seemed to be a planned approach.

Lots of information here that many of us knew little about.

Pleased that...
