As some of you know my partner is in hospital gravely ill, she has been in intensive care now for over 3 weeks and still no sign of her coming out, it has been a rollercoaster of a time for me, she has had three heart attacks, been put on life support three times but finally it appears we are turning a corner and a semblance of normality might be returning to my life, n a daf front Gina is off the road due to shearing all four of her flywheel bolts, tell you what it makes a fair noise when it happens at speed, ill post some pictures of that later !

this saturdaY i finally got to bring her home from the hospital, still so weak she cannot get up from a chair unaided, but she got to see her beloved dogs and spent an evening with me before I dropped her to her mums house to finish her rehabilitation, today I took her out and she bought herself a new digital camera, then out of the blue she gave me her old one !! was so good to spend some time with her when I seriously thought I would never get to again... every day she makes small progress, wont be long till the zimmer and the wheelchair are a distant memory
