    I can see the "...but I've got cancer..." ticket coming to an end. Still got to recover from transplant during the summer and will be weak apparently so can still milk it for a while longer yet!

    Got to get fit for all those mouth-watering away days!

    I have been to every ground we'll be playing at next season (unless Forest Green come up) - they're mostly either local to my family in the north west or easy enough from London where I live right now. Even FGR would be OK as have got family in south Wales so can make a weekend of it down there and visit FGR on the way.

    Being weak will be an open ticket, Torchy. Any jobs you don't fancy doing should bring on a "I'm a bit tired, I think I'll have a lie down." :smuggrin:

    Thanks for offer. I accept. Just PM me your mobile so you can come and do stuff for me on a whim.

    I'd love to help but I've pulled my bootlace. Physio says it's a grade 3 tear, so I'll be unavailble for actual physical work for at least 3 - 6 months. Had that Yakubu bloke sat next to me in the waiting room funnily enough. Lovely chap, very still and peaceful.

    I would do, Torchy, but we get little or no mobile signal in this village.

    All you have to do is aim. Be over before you know it.

    Candy Crush Saga for me recently, it gets you! Usually when finding a cheeky 5 minutes on the bog!

    Never played that. Might give it a go. Any other suggestions?

    Tele is free on our ward but rubbish channels. I haven't tried Sky Blue Player yet. Worked fine in Cov. I'll leave that particular joy/despair until tomorrow at 12pm.

    It's a football one where you have to slide on the screen the path of the ball to score goals :)

    Pop yourself an emulator on, and play Chuckie Egg to your heart's desire!

    Good luck today Torch.

    Spare a thought for me too, currently in Birmingham Airport departures and I've had to have a pint!

    In all seriousness though, really hope today goes well :)

    Thanks Earl/Clint

    Yep, today is Day Zero. Somewhere in the UK a 20 year old guy will donate cells and they will be couriered/flown from whichever hospital he's donated and then I'll have them harvested into me. Amazing really.

    God bless my donor I say and to everyone who donates and gives blood, particularly at such a young age.

    Good luck fella. I'm sure it'll work out well for you.

    I hope you've enjoyed milking the illness, because the end is in sight.
