‘Shopping’ with his work wife… :)

The weekend has flown past and I have been ever the bit Christmassy! I have done the food shopping, collected the turkey, cleaned the house, wrapped the last few pressies and collected my hubby after having his ‘shopping’ day in Oxford with his work wife, Adam! It’s an annual event that they have and come back pretty sloshed with big smiles on their faces with very few and sometimes no presents! Well at least they are happy! 🙂

It has been exciting all weekend receiving so many supportive messages and seeing the number of followers rise on my facebook page; www.facebook.com/TripleNegativeBreastCancer (If you haven’t followed me yet please do! :)) I was about to say, I cannot believe how wonderful and kind everyone is being asking their friends to get their friends to follow me on Facebook. But I can believe it. I see the strength in numbers all the time and how people are truly so thoughtful when they want to be. I think the biggest thing about social media and this blog is how surprised I am at how many people are actually interested in what is happening in my life. It’s mind boggling but so very comforting knowing I am not alone. I just hope that it helps others that may be going through it too.

Today we have been to see Ray in hospital. Bless him. He so wanted to be with us on Christmas Day but has to stay there now. The up side is he looks much better so it’s worth staying in hospital in that case. Although he doesn’t seem to agree!

This afternoon has been spent watching Christmassy tv and having visits from my step son. All in all a great build up to the few big days ahead. And all the while I can’t help but keep looking at my facebook page as it gradually climbs! EEK!

I am so very touched to think that even while people are on holiday they are still thinking of Pete and I. Our good friend, Sam is travelling in South East Asia and has sent me so many ‘hearts’ pictures showing her support and we get little messages in the middle of the night (and the odd drunken phone call!) telling us that she is thinking about us and loves us. That is so surprising- you’d think we would be the farthest from her mind whilst she is having such a great time but no. It just makes me more determined come out the other side. I love her and all my friends.. Both Bear and I couldn’t do it without them.

On that note… I’m going to bed… Christmas Eve tomorrow!
