Unlike Del Shannon and despite this morning's heavy rainfall and eventual dank prevailing conditions, I was happy to be out and about walking the dogs with family and friends on Velmead, part of Eversley Forest near Church crookham. This photo shows Fiona with Rupert and Geraldine with Chaka as we returned to the car park at The Forresters. With such lovely people in my life there is no way I am going anywhere just yet other than soldiering on against Goliath and his cohorts all of whom are doing their damndest to make life as difficult as possible but failing miserably. Take heed you big ugly lug this guy's no 'runaway'!

Yesterday saw a visit to The Foutain Centre in Guildford for some much needed alternative therapy from some more wonderful professional people prepared to donate some of their valuable time in care of cancer sufferers and carers: I had a session of Accupuncture and Shiatsu Massage with Stuart Ravell followed by an Art meditation with Fiona Channon, whilst Geraldine enjoyed a lovely unexpected 'Allsorts' of Reiki, reflexology and a hydro therm massage with Felicity Alonso. Coming away relaxed and pain free we headed to the, you guessed, Crown and Cushion for a couple of drinks and some delicious sea bass fillets washed down with a delightfully light Vinho Verde. Unfortunately by evening time my pain had returned and later that night the vomiting started: Talk about swings and roundabouts!
Memo to self: Despite my love for over indulging, in persuit of weight stabilization of course, I must remember to be kind to myself in order to manage the food an drink intake versus the medication feed back!!!!!
