A very big thank you !


Thank you so much everyone who left some lovely messages through Chris.
It made me quite emotional when I read them all!
What a lovely lot you all are and am so pleased to be part of goy!
It’s like having a second family, knowing there is always a back up when things go wrong.
Rick is slowly recovering, but his walking and getting up off a chair hasn’t improved yet.
He had a serious water infection which literally
knocked him off his feet, but also had walking disabilities before the illness and I was told if I hadn’t rung for an ambulance when I did, it would have turned into sepsis!
When I rung my daughter Rachel, she said they were coming down and she cancelled everything and did the four hour journey to Suffolk! Bless her!
Thank you all once again! xx

Rose, apologies! I haven’t been on the site due to work. I’m sorry to hear that Rick has been very poorly! I do hope he is on the right track now towards recovery. It’s obviously been a very scary time for him and for you and the family. Lovely to hear that Rachel has been able to be with you and give you both much support.
Sending my best wishes x

Sorry to hear of this Rose. I have only just picked it up as I have been in Scotland for the last week.

Hope Rick is fully recovered asap.

Thank you for letting us know Rose. So sorry to hear about Rick's water infection - they can make you feel so ill, on top of everything else. Lets hope he will soon be well enough to sit outside and admire the new pool!
