Evening diary,

A difficult week with lots of self criticisms has been ended with the news that my father has bowel cancer.

Tears flowed earlier but in a strange way it has moved me away from self pity to right - lets deal with this.

Perhaps it has moved me in the right direction. As yet i dont know.

Has it given me a new purpose in life. As yet i dont know

Will i deal with this - too blooming right.

Am i confused - too blooming right.

Opened the christmas whisky present and contemplating.

Am i rabbiting - probably

What issues do i have at the mo - none. My family is more important.

Best

Bal,

I am so sorry to hear the news about your father. I know that you are likely to throw all of your attention into your father and your family but I speak from experience in saying that you still need to take care of you too. I hope to see you some time on here or in chat. Take good care x

Evening diary,

Still await my results and the treatment proposed for my father.

Strange week. Work is very quiet but due to pick up this week.

Off to London on monday for a meeting and which i will meet my son afterwards for bagels in Brick Lane then beers. He then goes to Oz for 9 months for work. At 24 good luck to him.

Tonight i feel nicely relaxed with the open fire on and a large dram

Evening diary,

Thank you for your kind words Murlo. My hospital letter came through and said no cancer. A great sigh of relief.

Had a birthday last week to which Mrs Bal and i had the day off. 5 mile walk around Thetford Forest together. Fantastic weather and fantastic company. No presents from the kids but they made me the most fantastic chocolate cake. Time spent, effort spent meant so much to me. A gesture for which i am truly thankful.

Nice evening followed with an indian in the company of mrs bal.

This weekend a night away at a 5 star hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary on sunday.

Best x

Murlo and SL - many thanks for taking time out to post on my diary.

Evening diary - A night in with Mrs Bal for valentines evening. Chippy t, bit of tv, bit of alcohol, listening to music. All in all pretty relaxed.

Morning diary,

My father goes into hospital today for a blood transfusion pending an operation to remove a cancerous growth on his bowel tomorrow. His elderly years and diminishing health make this a difficult time for all.

Working at home today but in reality struggling to focus on getting anything done.

The house is peaceful at the moment except the wind blowing down the chimney.

I will leave with a final message of how sad i was for a celebrity to feel so low that they ended life at the weekend and how much media coverage this has generated

BUT PLEASE REMEMBER

12 veterans a day commit suicide which the media rarely reports on.

Best
