A week of mum, Christmas shopping and more….

I have been missing blogging/journalling these last few days. I haven’t been avoiding doing it I’ve just been busy -living.

Tuesday I was back up the hospital to have blood tests again ready to start day eight of chemo on Thursday. Straight from there I went to see my pranic healer then onto have reflexology. What a lucky girl and it couldnt have been better timing what with my sore ankle.

Wednesday after my rituals I packed up my car and hit the road, Jack. Arriving at mums house in the afternoon ready for a few days of mum love.

Of course I hate being away from my hubby but it’s good to catch up and spend time with your nearest and dearest too. I’d actually say its essential!

There has been plenty of Christmas shopping (maybe a bit for me too!) walking as well as squeezing in  my course work for the health coaching course I am studying. In fact I had an Epsom salt bath whilst watching a lecture the other night!

I have missed my Bear and I am thankful as there is only one more night apart. I don’t like going to bed without him, so I’m feeling very tired but I don’t mind, I have had a lovely time.



Wednesday I got a call from the hospital telling me my bloods are absolutely fine. I’m loving the service at present. I rarely have nurses call me!

Yesterday I took the anti sickness tablets followed by the 5 chemo tablets. I always have trepidation because I hope I’m not going to feel sick. It’s all in my head.. Today a day later, I feel fine. I felt fine all day yesterday and can only assume that I must be doing something right!




Last night I caught up with a really good friend who I haven’t seen since the summer. Hours fly by when you are chatting and I felt enriched for the time together.

The benefits of spending time with loved ones is insurmountable. There is evidence to show those that spending time with family and friends live longer than those who are lonely.

So that’s that then, there is no excuses not to keep in touch and let’s face it both parties get so much out of spending time together.

Every morning since I have been here mum and I have meditated, done some yoga and exercised. This morning we did a Davina McCall DVD. It feels so funny ever since we met Davina. She is so full of energy and positivity. Love her. What an amazing way to start the day.

Back to the shops this morning for our last bits and bobs for Xmas then off to visit my sister. That was lovely too especially coming home with a gift.. Totally unexpected. The universe can be so good to me! Yippee!

So I am currently sitting in mums kitchen. We’ve just finished eating her homemade vegetable soup and now we are experimenting with making blueberry muffins with coconut flour, almond milk and coconut palm sugar. They don’t look great but things don’t always go right first time.

How do I feel? I feel good. My homework has been asking a lot about what I want to achieve in life. I am a little flaky on this. I don’t really feel I have definite goals. Of course I want to complete the course and become a health coach. I want to earn a good salary but my biggest desire is to be healthy and ultimately canSer free. I’m wondering If I took that out of my thoughts if I would be clearer on my other desires. I just keep thinking I just want to be happy. But what would make me happy? It all goes back to being in perfect health, working at home with clients, having a few trips abroad seeing parts of the world I have never seen, spending regular time with my family and friends. Not much I don’t think. I don’t want for anything. I am so lucky in that respect. I want a nice house and garden and a future to live with my hubby til we are old and grey. I think you want less when you have been faced with canSer. It really puts things into perspective.

I feel almost complete. I just need to stay healthy. Other than that I’m really happy and achieving all the things I desire.

I’m going to miss mum when I go home in the morning and I never want to leave but I am looking forward to my own bed,my kitty and most of all my gorgeous hubby…. Upcited!!!!
