I too know personally what a shit time you go thru ,I was diagnosed with gut cancer 2 years ago ,same as you guys thought I was okay and on the mend after suffering the ops and all the messy bags ,then 12 months ago was in agony , found out they had clipped a pipe and 1 kidney was blown had that removed 6 months ago ,that kept me from boating this summer,now just found out other kidney is only pumping at 30%,what a xmas pressy eh , but I still have my boat sat in the back all wrapped up it keeps me sane knowing come march/april I will be back out fingers crossed
so a happy xmas to you and all and look forward to better health
me, brave, not a chance, it's the family that have to be brave, they have to watch us going through it all! least said about messy bags the better, glad to see the back of them seems you're having a rough time of it too, but as you say having the rib waiting does at least take you're mind of it, just need to adapt the days out to suit how you feel, still good times to be had

ahhhhh ......... Guinness, I'm sure I'll be ready for a pint some time in the new year, been on cobra for a while now, anything stronger just went straight through me so no good. I'm trying to be good n not put too much weight on, hopefully when I'm eating properly I can loose a bit, do me good and make the SR4 go better

once again many thanks for all the messages and comments, much appreciated by me, Jayne & Andrew
Chris, it was good to talk to you today and glad you are back on the mend.

I forgot to mention that I have a hydraulic engine hoist rated to 500kg which can be easily disassembled/assembled and put into the back of the Landy. So if you need a hand fitting the engine give me a shout!

Hi Gareth, always good to chat

I should be ok with the engine, got a beam in the garage for lifting engines / gearboxes etc but I'll let you know if I'm struggling

Dipping biscuits

Perhaps Biffer and Chris can update Peter Kay's guide to the best dipping biscuit?

Rich Tea (One-dip)

Hob Nob (The Marine of the biscuit world)

Etc, etc....

Well here's mine, malted milk, the ones with cows on, two of hem back to back, 3 seconds in the tea then straight in the gob
Jammy dodgers are good, 4 seconds
Chocolate fingers, bite each end off and suck your tea though it, just a couple of seconds though, when I was well, gin or vodka went through really good, talking of vodka, get a water melon put a small hole in it and insert the vodka bottle and let it empty over a few days, lovely melon then.
We know about rich tea. 38 cals in every one
