I can't decide whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. I have had some chemo which will have had some effect on the tumours, we hope, but I have not had the recommended amounts and so the effect on the tumour won't be as great or miraculous as should be expected.
It is bitter sweet, knowing that my body is failing, but can tolerate some treatment but not enough to complete the course.
But I cannot dwell on that, I had more important things to plan for... a certain young lady turned 1.
Yep, on the Thursday following non - chemo we headed to the West Country for some much needed rest, relaxation & family time.

We had a lovely time and managed to get this lovely family shot in my parents garden. In the afternoon we took Hope to her first Taunton Scout & Guide Gang Show, and their 25th show. This brings back all sorts of memories for me. I was in the first Gang Show in 1989, I've been an Edwardian Lady, an Alien and all sorts of things in between. I was presented with my Baden Powell trefoil by Betty Clay (Lord Robert Baden Powells daughter) on the opening night in 1994, setting a trend that had been followed by a range of guides and young leaders through the years.
On our return back to Crawley it was time to start preparing for our next big adventure & one of our once in a lifetime events. It was time to think about Thomasland.
I think Thomasland deserves a post of its own, so i'll save that for later and just tease you with a photo....
Following Thomasland there was my Mummy & Isaac day. We went to Brighton and had a great time in the sea life centre, where Isaac overcame his fear and touched the starfish in the rock pool. We also took a trip on the Brighton Wheel and had some lovely chips on the beach while Isaac played and collected stones for our garden.

And very soon I shall be off to see my oncologist to determine what happens next. Keep your eyes peeled for that revelation.
