sunday 13th September

Spent the afternoon with guiding friends, good food, good company, good conversation. We have been meeting as a trainers support group with some changes for a number of years now, so we have a comfortable relationship which may be about to change.

We had comfort food last night and shared the cooking – just pork steaks,  mashed carrot and swede and fried potatoes – perfect end to a’ perfeck’ day.

Spoke to Judy about the trials and tribulations of our lives. I feel lucky in my friends and family.

I have been avoiding blogging was never very good at keeping a diary, but I have decided that I don’t want this to become a cancer blog, because quite frankly I don’t want to be reminded of the awfulness of it all. It sucks, it’s not a nice place to be and life is so much more than this episode. So chemo has been the pits, really debilitating but the alternative is far worse. So I might mention it but I will not allow it to dominate and shape all I do or don’t do.

Have just had a lovely time staying with my sister, I bought her and my brother in law a book to celebrate their silver wedding – Moroccan cooking. They had a splendid trip to celebrate it, following on from the wonderful time my sister and I had last year. So last night we did the sisters cooking together and made a lovely fish tagine, delicately spiced and glowing with colours of tomatoes and green peppers – fabulous.

I love reading but find more serious books difficult at present, so immersed myself in reading Second Honeymoon by Joanna Trollope – pure escapism – lovely.
