About this Blog

This blog started as an online diary and place for me to rant about annoyances in my family.

However since July it has become a place for me to catalogue and express my views and opinions on the treatment I have recieved following the diagnosis of a potentially cancerous tumor in my bowel.

On 3rd August 2011 I was told that it was cancerous. In April 2012 I was given the all clear.

October 15th 2013 I was diagnosed with peritoneal disease and liver metastases. The cancer was back and this time it is inoperable.

It is a little bit out of date as the NHS doesn't tend to have a WiFi connection in hospital and I can only post when I get home and posts take a while to write.

It is NOT about individuals or the nursing profession. It is about some of the inadequacies in the system and the way the NHS is failing some people.

Strictly come dancing

I love strictly. I haven't followed it from the start, but as soon as I started watching it I was hooked. I think the first season I watched was the one with Zoe Ball.

It seems I am installing this love in my children.

This evening Isaac sat enthralled by Susanna and Kevin's Paso Doble. I happened to glance at him during it and he wasn't moving. Once it finished he said 'that was amazing mummy, it made me feel all special in my tummy'

We talked about the music. He said it made him feel powerful and like he was in charge. 

We talked about the dancing. He said it was beautiful and better than all that twirling!!

I love how my 5 year old expresses himself and I hope that when I am gone, he reads this and remembers the special moments that we've shared.

Isaac, I love you and am so proud of you. The way you express yourself fills me with joy. You are so articulate and clever. Let me reiterate, I love you.
