"Thanks, Susan. You put it exactly  into words when you say that your Ed was the constant backdrop to everything. So was my Chris - I was happy in doing things because he was there. I would take trips for work to far flung places…"

"As I mentioned, I have taken up singing, which is one of the few things that gives me pleasure. I've decided to go for my Associated Board exams to give me something to focus on. I'm starting at grade 3 (starting low!) and I've chosen…"

"Hi Shelly - Yes, I'm at 16 months now, and the lack of exercise (except for dog walks) and wine consumption means I don't eat anything but don't lose weight - I'm still slim but very flabby. Sofa, wine, Dead to Me After Life on…"

"I’m so sorry to hear about these children. Maybe it frightens them to see a parent in need, when for all their lives you were the one who sorted them out. Im lucky - C and I did not have kids of our own, but his daughter and I are very close.…"

"It’s the buttered toast diet over here for me. I can’t taste things but I crave salty and crunchy. I add cheese for protein. And wine just because. But weirdly, I’m still healthy. Even after over a year. It works for me but I…"
