It's been a busy few weeks. I worked a couple of night shifts and survived. I stayed at my sister's, and it was nice to collect my nephew from school a couple of days. We're actually thinking of moving much closer to my sister. It is cheaper. (Still London prices. It's all relative.) We have no strong reason to live anywhere in particular, so we thought we might as well consider moving to the same sort of area as my sister. The plan is put our current place on the market at the beginning of next year, in the hope of being moved into somewhere new by June.

The fly in the ointment is that my mum was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I hadn't really expected it to be anything when mum went for tests, but unfortnately it was. It hasn't stopped my dad from being grumpy and bad tempered. Where we currently live is close to my parents' house, so we'll see how it goes with mum's treatment and then make a decision at the beginning of next year.

It would be really nice to have a house though, and we have a very long list of requirements and possibly not the money to match it!

Sorry to hear about your mum. Keeping fingers crossed for her. They can work wonders these days - my dad had lymphoma a couple of years ago with a massive lump on his neck that I couldn't see how it would ever go away and he's in total remission after chemotherapy. Best wishes.

Pam - Thanks. I'm pleased things worked out for your dad and that he is in total remission.

Mum's op is a week on Monday and I hope it goes well. At the moment she is due to have radiotherapy, and will only have chemotherapy if it has spread to the lymph glands. Let's hope it's good news.

I hope all is well with you and that life is treating you well. Good to hear from you.
