A Breast Cancer Update

It’s been some time since I last shared an update with you and as I’ve had an increase in messages checking in with me, I thought it’d be a good idea to let you know where I’m at now.  Last I shared I’d just finished my radiotherapy sessions and I was waiting for the short …

A Breast Cancer Update

Today I want to share a breast cancer update. I feel like it’s important to share a little about my journey here, it’s a huge part of my life so it feels disingenuous not to. At the same time, I don’t want it to take over this space, take all over all that I do, …

A Year Ago…

A year ago this week I found out that I had breast cancer. Having cancer is always on my mind. I don’t have days where I forget. Maybe in coming years I will, but as I say, it was just a year ago that I found out.  The past few weeks it’s been right there …

California Here We Come

I think, I hope, I’ve finally got everything arranged for our holiday this summer.  I mentioned it a few months back, and to be honest, that only feels like last week, and yet here we are in May already. We’ll be on that plane before we know it. We were originally going to Disney World …

How I’m Doing Now

Since my breast cancer diagnosis last May, I’m different. I know this. And I’m not saying bad different, just different. Being up close with your own mortality changes things for you. Everyone knows they are going to die some time, but it’s not the same as hearing the words ‘you have cancer’.  Of course everybody …

My Yoga Experience

I’ve had a few conversations with friends recently about yoga. I don’t know whether it’s because it’s the new year, the dark days or just our age!  We’ve been talking about the benefits, how to fit it into our lives, how to get started with it and then making it a habit, and I think …

Bye, Bye 2023

As this year draws to a close, and I’m winding down for a little break with my family, I’m waving goodbye to 2023 and starting to think about 2024. At the start of the year I decided that my word of the year would be ‘entertaining’, and in many ways I do feel it’s lived …

That Was Our Summer

And just like that, the kids are back to school and that was our summer. They’re both back now, my boy in Year 6 his last year at primary school, and my daughter into Year 9. We’ve got a meeting at her school this week covering GCSE options, no easing us in on this! To …

As The School Year Ends

How are we already at the end of another school year?  I distinctly remember having a chat with a friend in October, I can picture where we were at the time, talking about the end of the year and thinking it was ages away, and yet that chat feels like last week! My daughter’s just …

A Life Update

This isn’t a post that I’d expected to be writing, yet here I am. I found out last month that I have breast cancer.  I had surgery last week and I’m now on the road to recovery from that before my treatment begins, which will depend upon the outcome of my surgery. It’s a funny …

Living in the Present

Whilst Stumbling the other day, I came across this quote.. I’m sure I’m not the first person to reflect that he is indeed a wise man! These are easy traps to fall into in today’s world. Before Boo’s arrival, I was all about my work. I was good at it, I was respected and I …
