All's Well.

Hi just popped in to say thank you for all the good wishes for our trip today. When we looked out this morning at 7am we had about 2 inches of snow it was lying thick in the street but thanks to my laptop I logged on to a wonderful website Traffic Scotland which has cameras on main trunk roads. After looking at the route we had to take we could see the roads were clear, our thanks to the road gritters for making such a wonderful job today. We left here at 8-50am in plenty of time for Stuart's 10-30 am appointment we had a good journey through just a few flurries of snow on route. We even manage to get parked which is a miracle in itself. We had time for a coffee before it was time to find the department we had to go to. Stu was taken five minutes before his time and we were back out by 10-50am. We just headed straight back home as the snow showers were getting more frequent and very heavy. It snowed most of the way home but the roads were still good. We were back home all safe and sound at 12 o'clock and happy it was all over. We did not want to have to cancel this appointment as it would have had to be rescheduled and it would have been about a six week wait and then another wait to see the results of the scan to Stuart legs. So at least now we are on the way to getting somewhere. We have been told that Stuart will either need a bypass on his legs or stints we will have to wait and see, hopefully it will by the latter as more surgery would not be good. Since we got home it has been snowing heavy from time to time with more forecast for tonight don't think we have it as bad as the south of the country but at least we are still moving at the moment. That's it for today so keep warm and don't play out in the snow too long.

I'm glad you made it there and back safely. I'm hoping that all goes well with your husbands legs. That is tricky business and must be taken care of. No snow here but another sunny day. 2 in a row. Of course there is still lots of snow on the ground but some of the ice build up around is melting. 'On Ya'-ma

Hi Joan, I`m so pleased that you had a safe, uneventful journey to Dundee. I thought of you this morning while I was crawling in to work. I hope Stuart doesn`t need major surgery. Take care and stay warm.

Love and Hugs

Thanks for keeping us up to date. I am glad to read that the Scots are still not at a standstill...(we have had more snow I suppose over the years so have got used to it.) I can never remember our village school closing beacause of bad weather..although I remember having to be traken on a sledge at least once !! and the poor teachers I suppose thinking about it now must have coem all the way from Edinburgh 12 miles away.!! Down here the schools close with an inch of snow. Still just let Dee the wee dog out it is still snowing down here about an inch or two today I would think. I will be hibernating till better days !!
Love Sybil xx

Happy to read you had a safe journey Joan.Isn't it a great feeling to know you are back home.No place like home is there.It's been a terrible day here where I live near the pennines.Brrrr.Wind and heavy snow.Lots of disruption on the roads and part of the M62 was down to one lane today.My BIL had the major surgery on his legs a couple of yrs ago and he has never looked back.They made him a new man.Lets hope Stuart only needs the stents though.It's a bit of a worrying time but we are all behind you and you are both in my prayers always.I hope your kitchen fitters don't have a delay with the weather being as it is.Enjoy your evening.Take Care God Bless Kath xx

Hello! Joan
Glad you managed your Journey, and home safe.
I should have been at hospital today, but cancelled on Monday....before the Snow.
I've now cancelled 6 appointments since end of November (being unwell) and they just get put forward.
Would love a new Kitchen! Mines OK but would love an 'eye level' Oven

Great to hear that you and Stuart got to his appointment safely Joan.
That was good that you were able to see the routes you were going to be taking. what a relief you were able to make it and find a car parking space! They are like finding gold in hospital car parks.
Good luck with the decisions you both now face.
Stay warm and snug up there in Scotland.
