About this Blog

This blog started as an online diary and place for me to rant about annoyances in my family.

However since July it has become a place for me to catalogue and express my views and opinions on the treatment I have recieved following the diagnosis of a potentially cancerous tumor in my bowel.

On 3rd August 2011 I was told that it was cancerous. In April 2012 I was given the all clear.

October 15th 2013 I was diagnosed with peritoneal disease and liver metastases. The cancer was back and this time it is inoperable.

It is a little bit out of date as the NHS doesn't tend to have a WiFi connection in hospital and I can only post when I get home and posts take a while to write.

It is NOT about individuals or the nursing profession. It is about some of the inadequacies in the system and the way the NHS is failing some people.

Foolproof fudge

After the excitement of about 3inches of snow this morning, i have found something even better.
My mum makes amazing fudge and i have never been able to replicate it. Yesterday while going through some old magazines i found yet another fudge recipe and thought i'd save it for a rainy day. This was thwarted today as Mr hayllar decided he wanted millionaire shortbread, as he was going to the supermarket i ordered the fudge ingredients and thought i'd give it a shot.
So chocolate and condensed milk mixed and melted, icing sugar added then into the fridge. 2 hours later yummy chocolate fudge.

Now just need to let the chocolate for the millionaire shortbread!!!
