Peter, as usual after the event i've realised my post might be rude. I don't mean it that way, it's just the way I talk, but in case you have read it already and are offended, i'm sorry. I forget (don't know how??) that we all speak so differently here.
My hide is tougher than whatever you can throw out! lol
You have a long way to go before you can match the 'dingo boy' ryan! lol
Typical dingo........high tailing it!

It's Christmas Eve!!!
I'm sitting here with the christmas lights on the tree. It's early an no-ones up yet. I'm hoping some of you will post your favorite christmas records today, i'd love to hear them. We've a mad day ahead - still stuff to do, and my family descend this afternoon. So i'm just having this little bit of peace to listen to my all time favorite christmas record......and to share it with you.
Fairytale of New York
We've got friends coming over for christmas day, and then my husbands family on boxing day. I'm looking forward to it....my new little grandson will be having his first christmas. How special.
I usually post my daily thoughts in the YOPD section of this site, quite a few of us do, in jb's 'Good Morning' thread. But i'm chatting to everyone today. At Christmas you (I) tend to reflect back on the year a bit. Despite my diagnosis, this one goes down as a very good year. I've met new friends, both here and in real life. I've grown as a person (I know that sounds like a 'poncy' thing to say, but it's true). I've gained a greater understanding of the strength and humour and kindness inside of people.
I wonder what next year will bring. My hope is that it brings relief for all of you that suffer with this disease. Or at the very least, I hope you find ways to relieve the discomfort. And my other hope? World peace and happiness! And if everyone in the world wanted that, we'd have it wouldn't we...
Lifes not perfect is it. But as I sit here in the morning darkness with my little christmas tree lights twinkling I have to say it's pretty darn good, and I truly appreciate how lucky I am to be warm and safe and well fed. And to be loved. I hope you all have someone to share your Chritsmas with. If not, post a message. There are lots of lovely people here who will respond.
So, the christmas hubub? I say Bring it on!! Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you like the song
ps Petermid....this is a MUSIC store my man.....go to Smiths for your documentaries lol.

The late, great Jeff Buckley's version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." Many artists have covered this song but none as affectingly as Jeff.

Peter...Queen..so hard to pick a favorite....when my husband played football (before his knees gave out on him)..this one always got played at the end of the night when we had a 'do'...acompanied by lots of very loud off-key singing, group hugs and beer thrown everywhere.....everyone loved everyone and for the length of the song, life was grand!
We are the Champions
I'm dedicating this one to you Peter, I love your spirit and humour...you may have lost a lot in life, but you are still here and this forum would be a sadder place without you. Turn up the volume and sing your heart out!
