Well, today marks another milestone in my life, I celebrate my 65th Birthday.
Five years ago, I was unsure whether or not I would make it this far, having had the cancer diagnosis and then only a month before my 60th birthday, a heart attack. But, I'm still here and facing a huge change in my life.
Yesterday, we finally exchanged contracts to move into a two bedroom bungalow after over 35 years in our house ... our family home!
That's the difficult thing, it has been a home where we have raised our children. It holds so many memories. It will be so hard to finally say goodbye to the house I loved and leave behind wonderful neighbours, and an area where I have spent over half my life.
So, as I'm about to leave one part of my life behind and look forward to the next part, may I wish everyone here a very Happy Christmas and thank you all for the help and support you've given me over the years. I couldn't have done it without you.
