#1: Carole Author: nuccia, Location: Toronto, Ontario, CanadaPosted: Sun Jan 31, 2010 3:24 pm ---- Hi Everyone..
I have had a few pm's and emails asking where Carole has been and if shes ok so I figured I would just let everyone know that she is alright but has been a bit sick lately and very tied up in translations. Personally, I have heard her sound better but she assures me she is fine and will be back soon.
If you get a chance, you may want to send her an email and let her know you're thinking about her - of course you could also post here if you prefer.
Thanks for thinking about her. She appreciates the thoughts.

#3: Re: Carole Author: lilbees, Location: Georgia, USAPosted: Mon Feb 01, 2010 1:38 pm ---- What a relief! I have been quite worried about you Carole. Besides, not having jokes from you is quite unsettling.
Please get well soon.
#4: Re: Carole Author: Emmy, Location: ScotlandPosted: Mon Feb 01, 2010 2:23 pm ---- Carole I hope you feel better soon but dont overdo things and dont sit at the computer for too long either.
I'm going to try to 'walk' a bit more but my wee pooch Bengy wont walk on a leash so its been suggested I put him in the basket of my walker and that I put Gizzy on a leash so they both can get out with me but I have a better idea - I think I would be better in the basket and get someone to train the dogs to push me
(problem with that though dont think walkers come with a basket that would fit me)
Now Carole just imagining that hopefully will make you smile.
But Take Care
Love God Bless

#10: Re: Carole Author: Robert, Location: London, UKPosted: Mon Feb 08, 2010 5:50 pm ---- Thank you Nuccia - we have been trying to get hold of Carole (via Facebook, Skype, etc) with no luck and were getting very worried - will let the rest know she is okay(ish).
Hope you feel better soon. If you want to get out of the cold weather, we've got a nice guest room down here in Southwest Florida.
#12: Re: Carole Author: Carole, Location: Valtellina - Near Lake ComoPosted: Thu Feb 11, 2010 6:18 am ---- A big thank you first of all to Nuccia who is like a Mother hen to me....
and then to all you wonderfully caring people - your concern is really appreciated. To know someone cares is really a wonderful boost...
I've not really been around 'anywhere' recently because, among other things, I'm up to my eyes in a bunch of legal translations... and you try breaking your train of thought when you're in the middle of a page full of plaintiffs, defendants, heretofore, wherefore, where-in's etc. etc. I've had to cut myself off to cope with it as the client is going to make a handsome donation to "Gente di Mare" for the job. I can live with that, as a site like ours isn't inexpensive to run...
But perhaps worse than all that is the fact that I' not keeping too well in myself either. I just can't shake off the cold/chill I got in mid December when first I lost the electricity and then the boiler flooded the attic. Add the arthritis to that and the psoriasis on my legs which is getting worse - PLUS - just to make things easier (NOT!) I'm not sleeping well at all. My legs are very painful with the psoriasis and the 'restless leg syndrome' and I think I mentally don't want to go to bed. If I sleep in the armchair the legs don't hurt, but the sleep, alas, isn't very restful.
The Mutt is good company (bless him), and he's his usual self - but I'm sure he's a bit pissed off with me 'cos a lot of days when I get up late he just 'gets to go' on the balcony/terrace (and before you tell me off - I can say that 'cos he's a dog.....hahahaha) - I can wash that down easily. But up and down the stairs is now not too good for me either with my legs like this. But I have a young lad who comes and gives him a good walk 3 days a week so at least he does get out a bit.
I've just not been feeling like going to all the forums over recent weeks, some bore me at times, and others I don't seem to have a lot to say as nothing seems to happen to me at the moment. I want to start up my old blog again too - if I can get myself 'in gear'. Anyone would think I was in my nineties the way I am at the moment. But I've never felt like this before. I never let anything beat me - ever! But now I'm finding it difficult coming to terms with my reduced capabilities in some fields of everyday life - and I don't like it...
But 'enough already' - why don't I stop whinging and just get on with my life - I am alive after all - AND living here is such a bonus too.
I hope I'll be back among all my friends very soon, but until then I'll just say thank you for caring and......
"Arriverderci a presto
#13: Re: Carole Author: BillieDeKid, Location: IllinoisPosted: Thu Feb 11, 2010 1:14 pm ---- So glad to see you post Carole and you're always in my prayers. I'll say an extra one so that chill of yours will go away for good
#14: Re: Carole Author: nuccia, Location: Toronto, Ontario, CanadaPosted: Thu Feb 11, 2010 1:14 pm ---- Hi Mum,
I'm glad you at least stopped by. We all miss you but you really need to take care of yourself more than anything else. Everyone has been pitching in and lending a hand so take care of you - and we'll all still be here when you get back. Unless of course you're meeting Ada at the disco or flying out to Biff's.....
