Hello all... It's been a while since I have been on the Forum but i heard that Rose was ready for her Camino and I wanted to wish her well. Rose, you will have a wonderful time and you'll meet such wonderful people from all walks of life. It will really be a life changing experience and once you get into your rhythm, you'll wonder why you were so anxious. I'll be thinking of you...On the 6th October I'll be going back for another 300k from Burgos to Ponferrada (I did Ponferrada to St. J. de C in 2012) and then perhaps next year I'll do St.J.PdeP to Burgos to boucle le boucle. And if I can't get it out of my system (it does that to you, Rose!) I might attack the Camino one last time when I'm 70.The advice everyone has given Rose has been perfect and the weather at this time of the year is just about perfect. So just enjoy yourself. Jen
Ian your tribute to Debs moved me to tears. You expressed the respect and love you had for her in the most eloquent way and it's not difficult to see why so many people admired her so much. I met Debs at the Bergerac lunch during her Itchy Feet tour and admired her modesty and simplicity and her courage in the face of everything that had happened to her. She was an intelligent, loving, amusing person who will be greatly missed.
You will have some difficult times in the months, even years to come but the mutual love and respect you had for each other will help you through.
When I was tapping an email message I accidentally pressed 'control' with another key and the presentation on the page shrank. The size of the page is perfectly normal but the words are miniscule. Anyone know how I can get back to normal? My reading glasses can just about handle it[:(]

Yes, thanks Sweets! With all the sport on at the moment there's a good excuse to escape into the garden and weed, weed, weed. The horrendous cold in February must have done a lot of good as the garden is looking quite spectacular. It's a lot of work, though.
The trouble is, Sweets, you are just such a nice person that everyone wants a piece of you[:D] A bit too late for tonight, but couldn't you 'put your back out' when you are gardening this week? That will take care of the Wimbledon finals.
