Carol - Kaz to you all - died in her sleep early in the morning of Valentine's Day.

Her funeral was attended by about 50 people which, considering she has two living relatives, shows how much people thought of her. It was conducted - according to her instructions - by her friends and was a warm and friendly gathering. The music she had chosen was

(Thanks you for the) Days - The Kinks (entry)
Soave Sea Il Vento - trio from Mozart's opera Cosi Fan Tutte (for silent reflection)
Don't Fear The Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult (exit)

The message she left for me ended with the instruction 'enjoy life', which I am sure she would extend to you all.

Thanks to all you wonderful bloggers who never give up on me.

Here's a copy of an email I sent out yesterday. Just thought I'd post a copy for all of you.

Dear All
Kev emailed you all in May when it seemed that I had just a little time to live. I'd just come home from MRI and hadn't eaten for weeks. My new GP used the word 'terminal' for the first time to me, and I didn't know he had already told Kev that I had only a month or so left. Looking at the photos from that time I can see why.

However, I started eating again and regained some weight.
It seems that the chemo had destroyed some of the tumour but the illness it also caused has left me unable to walk, so I have been confined to my bed for most of the year.

But I am not well, and not eating again - who knows what is to come.
A belated thank you for all your good wishes and I hope you all have a good new year.

Happy 2011 to all
from KAZ ( now with HAIR)

I possibly spend more time reading the Radio Times than watching the television. I just like to know what I'm missing.

Alison Graham is one contributor who makes sense - I agree that we can well manage without another series of Heartbeat - I thought it ended years ago.

However she then goes on to compare it with Battenburg - too sweet and soon forgotten.

You can go off people.

So - In the absence of my energy - have fun choosing your favourite cake. Add one of your choice if you wish


Victoria sponge

Carrot cake

Bakewell Tart
(This is the real thing)

Custard Tart
Custard (vanilla) slice

Chocolate cake
Tunnocks Tea cake
