I am a pensioner and underwent an operation to remove a benign tumour in January this year.On Friday,I finish a six and a half week course of radiotherapy..I feel fit,well and happier than I have been in recent years.I somewhat lost my faith in 1968 when my mum died at the age of 50 from breast cancer:but now feel that the Higher Authority has been looking out for me these last few months and am beginning to feel the need to attend the church again.
I enjoy homely things - cooking,gardening,sewing,knitting,crosswords,scrabble etc.I also like strolling in the local parks,countryside and when I can get there,the coast.I like to sit in the sun and watch the birds and squirrels.I love to hear people laugh.especially children
My profile picture was taken in Crete five years ago when I was 60 years old.I have no recent photos as I am usually alone with no-one to take any.But I plan on improving my social life as soon as the after effects of my treatment fade (hopefully in about 4 weeks time) by joining some social clubs - maybe a stitch and bitch group,a perky pensioners club -whatever I can find locally.I do not have transport and rely on buses and trains.
I don't really know what else to say.Maybe I'll add to this at a later date.:)
