Hello everyone. J and J has PMed me and asked me to start this thread for her. She is going to try and check in soon. Unfortunately her dh is ill again, I don't know details but she appreciates all messages and support we can give her again. She is so grateful for all the support she received last year and is sorry she didn't make it back onto the thread before it filled up.

So, hope to see all your friendly faces back on here again soon!

I remember Hope on a Rope.

Sorry to hear things haven't been going so well. Here when you need us, JandJ.

I don't know if I ever posted on J and J's threads (there are so many others who put things far better then i can) but I remember them well and was very moved by her bravery through such a difficult time. I'm sorry to hear that her DH is Ill again.

My thoughts are with you J&J.

I remember the unfortunately abbreviated HoaR thread. Sending love to J&J and her husband.

HappyNewSkyebluesapphire Wed 02-Jan-13 23:13:54

I'm here too.

Callingizzy !

MerlotforOne Wed 02-Jan-13 23:18:21

Thinking of you J and J.
brew thanks

AutumnDreams Wed 02-Jan-13 23:20:31

So sorry that J has further worries. Do send her my love if you are in touch again Laz, and tell her that we are here when she needs us.

Has anyone heard from Sad Widow, regarding the Quilt of Love?

HappyNewSkyebluesapphire Wed 02-Jan-13 23:44:51

I put a message in the other forum but haven't had a response

foolonthehill Wed 02-Jan-13 23:47:02

Ah, JandJ a few foolish thoughts and prayers for you.
Actually they never stopped, though the thread ended.

lazarusb Fri 04-Jan-13 18:59:02

So lovely to see you all again here, wish it was in better circumstances. Thank you for posting, I'm sure J & J will appreciate it.

Autumn I PMed SW and also posted in the other place but am still here, hanging onto my square. I know she was away for a while at Christmas so hopefully she will be in contact soon.

fool I hope you got the plumbing sorted out and had a nice Christmas. I thought of you all over Christmas, I was a bit sad when the other thread ended...maybe I need to get a life!? grin

Take care everyone, thank you again for being here.

amillionyears Fri 04-Jan-13 19:04:22

Not come across J & J before, but I hope her DH gets better soon x

FancyPuffin Fri 04-Jan-13 19:41:05

<Checking in>

I posted on the other thread a little.

JandJ really sorry to hear your dh isn't too well.

Am offering an ear to listen a hand to hold and some positive vibes for you both.

HappyNewSkyebluesapphire Sat 05-Jan-13 00:02:15

JandJ - thinking of you and I hope that whatever you are going through is temporary.

lazarusb Sat 05-Jan-13 18:27:00

Good to see posters old and new smile I've PMed Homebird & dondon to alert them to this new thread as they were regulars on the other one. Not sure whether to PM SW as she has been very quiet for a while and I don't want to pressure her if she's up to her ears...opinions gratefully received!

Homebird8 Sat 05-Jan-13 21:43:56

Thanks Lazarus for the PM and lots of love to J&J when you have moment to drop in. You know we will be here for you.

I think a gentle note to SW would be nice. She would want to feel invited but I know she will know we understand if RL is keeping her busy at the moment. We've all been here for each other really haven't we?

And to those of us who are posting for the first time for J&J, all are welcome here.

dondon33 Sat 05-Jan-13 23:01:05

<found you phew!!> Thank you lovely Lazarus for leading the way.

Hi all wine checking in to the new thread.
J and J so sorry your DH is not well again, hope it's nothing too serious after all he's just been through. I hope you all had a lovely Xmas together.

I was thinking of SW the other day, wondering if she enjoyed her Xmas stay at Saltburn.

AutumnDreams Sun 06-Jan-13 00:09:17

Hi everyone, It`s so lovely to have this thread back! Thanks Laz, you`re a star. Homebird, I hope you`re all walking unaided again. That Dondon has found suitable nipple warmers, and that Fool`s plumbing is in good working order. I know that Skye is doing just great most of the time, so love to her and Mini, and to all the other JandJ supporters.

J. Every time one of us comes on here we will be leaving love and hugs for you. Surround yourself with them, and know that we are here if you need us.x.

Homebird8 Sun 06-Jan-13 01:56:19

Hi there everyone. It's the after Christmas get together of a group of old (and new) friends smile

Thanks for the foot related enquiry Autumn. Pretty much fixed on my side now, a few twinges but nothing to get excited about. Apparently it'll be another six weeks or so before it's strong again. DH is still limping but running round like a mad thing after a house full of relatives for three weeks hasn't helped. I've done my best to help but his foot still gets swollen sad

Dondon glad you started with the wine wink Could do with a glass myself but the sun isn't quite yet over the yard arm here!

J&J, the prayers for you and your DH have never stopped. I hope your DS was able to spend some time home from uni over Christmas and despite DH's health you've enjoyed some family time all together. wine

WhoPutTheDickOnTheSnowman Sun 06-Jan-13 02:30:26

J&J you won't remember me from before but I was there all through.

I'm so sorry your amazing DH is ill again but you and your family are amazing. The love you have for each other brought me to tears more than once.

We are thinking of you here and sending healing and supportive thoughts. We can't send your DH around the world like Izzy did, or create a cocktail like Pa did but we are here.

Homebird8 Sun 06-Jan-13 08:18:46

Tempting to shorten your name to Dick, but perhaps we'll go with Snowman for the mo wink. Another seal has raised her head! smile Welcome.

lazarusb Sun 06-Jan-13 15:03:01

So good to see you all here! Snowman I don't know if you saw my tale of the penis-nosed Snowman bath bomb but yes, they did find their way into the children's stockings after all....nobody noticed! I giggled like a fool amidst quizzical expressions on Christmas day grin Dh found me vaguely annoying...!

I will PM SW and let her know we are here...hope she is ok too.

Homebird8 Sun 06-Jan-13 18:13:08

That's a story to tell the DCs when they're older Laz!

lazarusb Sun 06-Jan-13 20:45:04

grin I am aware that I have an odd sense of humour!
Anyhow, glad to hear your foot is on the mend, I hope your dh's foot settles down when your visitors are gone. Oh well, last night of dh & children's holiday...I hear a vodka and tonic calling!

sadwidow28 Sun 06-Jan-13 21:50:52

Have just got back home from Saltburn tonight. I am so sorry to hear that JandJ's DH is not well again.

I send love and prayers as always.

lazarusb Mon 07-Jan-13 09:27:42

Nice to hear from you SW. I hope you are well and had a relaxing time.
