Just back from Morlaix where I went for my chemotherapy, but instead underwent a scan and ecography to confirm that they've found a nodule on my liver; it doesn't necessarily mean bad news, but they may have to change my treatment accordingly.

I wonder whether I should mention my colostomy bag, be warned that it's not to everyone's taste, it's only a temporary situation and was stuck directly on to my skin and changed every day, trouble was that it kept coming unstuck with its unfortunate results leading me to always be prepared by having a change of clothing with me at all times. Because of these incidents we have adapted the system, now I have a block stuck to the skin changed every three days with a bag that's changed every day fixed on to it. I am impatiently waiting for the operation that will take place on Jan 11 more than a month after the chemotherapy ends.

  1. The bailiff came by this afternoon, my daughter had my papers showing that all my debts (after hospitalization and 3 years 7 months out of work) are being reimbursed on a monthly basis, he seemed a bit bewildered, tomorrow he'll be checking up from his side and will be coming back later with his decision on whether or not to give me my money back, otherwise, having taken the little amount I earned in August I risk an 'interdiction bancaire' when my debts are called in and I won't be able to pay.

Good friendly atmosphere tonight (isn't it always I hear you ask rhetorically). I didn't want to spoil things so I let them stay until 11:45 pm, the latest so far since the reopening. The legal limit is 1am, but that would be too much for me at the moment..

  1. Quite a day yesterday, Had a10am appointment with my surgeon, he booked me a table for Jan 11; 3pm the two Irish ladies who have a house in Loqueffret entered the bar with Piau, a French singer from Montpellier, who left me her second album, she already gave me her first. In the evening a crowd of women friends came here for what they call their 'Tupperware' evening which it isn't really. Something happened that sickened me more than my chemotherapy: I was out of work for 3 y...ears due to a fire leading to a loss of custom as many of my customers come from afar and there was no way of knowing of the reopening other than f/b, I was also thrown out of the guide books, Over four years after the reopening they were returning to the fold, then calamity! I collapsed with diabetes, in the hospital they found three cancers which led to seven months hospitalization and another closure; I was advised not to work this year, but I couldn't miss out on August, my best month for the money it brings in, to work on the debts accumulated during 3 years and seven months out of work. By earning enough and with the help from friends I managed to put a bit aside, and with the agreement of the organizations to pay them back on a monthly basis. I looked up my bank a/c yesterday, there was nothing left, the bailiff ha called it in even though my debts are regularly reimbursed, my daughter has the dossiers to show the baillif for our rendezvous Wednesday afternoon when hopefully I can get him to reverse the decision.

Irish couple from West Cork came back today after a visit yesterday. Five English motorcyclists came in this afternoon, they should have been six but one of them riding his bike on the left outside Morlaix ran into an oncoming car and was killed instantly. Two potential concerts, no details yet, with our favourite Welsh Breton female artistes, Lleuwen and Fran May respectively. More information to follow.

What a day! A wedding party in the afternoon followed by the return of the by now framed englyn dedicated to me by last year's National Eisteddfod Chair winner:

I Byn Walters:

Ein Caer uwch dyfroedd Ker Is yw fan hyn,
Yfwn ni, pawb megis
Duwiau yn gwneud ein dewis
Awn ni at lan Ty Elise
Aneirin Karadog

And to top it off, ENILLODD CYMRU/WALES WON.
