Dear Diary

Mon., 11 May

At last, we signed for the house. The sellers were there, brushed and sober for the occasion. The notaire was happy because she has been trying to sort out the property and inheritance mess since 2003.

Nick had his sonagram and I had my CT Scan. Tumours are growing, again, and there is a new little one on the peritoneum or something. I'm not good at interpreting the results, but will see the oncologist on Friday. Chemo will probably be commencing soon.

Tues., 12 May

Cleaned and painted. We had a crew of 5 in the morning and one of 6 in the evening. We finally got home around 10. You really know who your friends are when you're moving.

Found a bird nest in a niche in the wall of the courtyard with little ones. Got some neat pictures, but have to wait for Polo to get them to me. I forgot to charge the battery in mine.

Wed., 13 May

Moved stuff. And moved stuff. And moved stuff. And didn't finish, so we continue tomorrow. And clean the apartment and move to the new house tomorrow night.

We have a lot of things to do on Friday, so I didn't feel it was fair to dump the animals in the new house and go off shopping and doctoring. We'll all sleep there tomorrow and the may have hope that we'll return. Bad enough they've all been alone all day all week.

Cats are now locked in. I hope that haven't forgotten what litter trays are for.

We have had no phone since this morning, but, oddly, we still have the internet. Think I will post this before we lose it.


  1. Well, SHIT about the damn tumors. Damn them they won't stay beaten into submission! But, you're tougher than they are! Happy moving. Can't wait for birdie pictures. Le Sigh, chemo again. :-(

  2. Well, good news about finally signing for the house. Bad news about the tumors. Sorry to hear it's back to chemo. The peritoneum, btw, is the membrane lining the abdomen.

  3. Sucks about the more chemo.
    BUT congratulations on the new house. Don't forget to take plenty of naps so you can recharge for all the activity!

  4. Haven't heard from you in a while. I hope you are doing OK. Did the move get done?

  5. :waves:
    I am guessing that Margot is internet-less these days. The horror!

  6. OMG!!! I can't imagine!!! When I was internet-less at home I still had the crappy phone internet, and I thought I had it bad. Wow. I hope she's up and running soon!

  7. Thinking of you, hope the beginnings of licking des res into shape are going well..and you are gaining mental physical strenght for next batch chemo..hugs x J
