  • Blog Post: The Beginning of the End.

    I've decided to write about all of this. To put my thoughts down somewhere. To get them out of my head and onto a screen. Many people have told me that writing is the best form of therapy. I've always enjoyed writing, at school I would dream of being a writer, that dream didn't work out but...
  • Blog Post: Chemo and a VIP

    (28 Nov, 2012) First chemotherapy session today… having been quite blase about it all I woke up this morning terrified, not just about an unknown process but the after effects, side effects etc etc. I was jolly glad my daughter was coming with me to hold my hand and drive the car…...
  • Blog Post: Code red to amber

    (Nov 11, 2012) mentally I guess it’s just taken this week to make that shift…. I’ve still not heard from the oncology department (hopefully tomorrow or i’ll be chasing them) but this week my team of web monkeys have been busy. When I say web monkeys I mean most everyone...
  • Blog Post: Out Of The Blue

    On Sunday 2 September I braced myself for grief. From a few days before I knew what was coming. Six months since he took his final breath. I lit all his candles, and I kneeled down in front of my photos, ‘the shrine’ to him. I was sad. As I spoke to him I shed a tear. But I didn’t...
  • Blog Post: Anger

    Nothing helps. She's angry. I know she's scared. I know she's in pain. I want to help but I'm scared of irritating her. I'm angry too. I'm angry to see my sister continuing to smoke. Seeing the situation our mum is currently in. I get angry when I see strangers smoking. I...
  • Blog Post: Mother Dearest

    I am a daddy’s girl; his little princess and mini-me. My mum knows this, and over the last 18 months she has watched as my world shattered around me; as I dedicated my every moment to care for him, and then my every tear as I grieved the loss of my first true love. My parents seperated when...
  • Blog Post: Rainbows and Angels and Shooting Stars?

    On 12 November 1986 I laid eyes on my first love. On 1 March 1986, nine months earlier I had been at his wedding. I was nothing more than the size of a peanut; just starting to grow the fingers that I would wrap around his, and the lips that would kiss him so lovingly for the next 25 years were just...
  • Blog Post: The Rainbow

    03 March 2012 On his first day of testing out his new magic powers he sent me a shooting star. 04 March 2012 Every day since I have seen a rainbow. For the first few days it appeared on the carpet outside my bedroom, reflecting off a nearby mirror. I began to fear the day I didn't...
  • Blog Post: There Is Something Wrong With The Tree

    02 March 2012 A story shared between a father and a daughter. A story for the past. For the present. And for the future. As a young girl he read The Magic Faraway Tree stories to me at bedtime. As a mother I hope to share these with my own children. But first I want to reshare them with my father...
  • Blog Post: Twinkle

    03 March 2012 We still haven't got round to naming his star. How ever will he manage to find his way to Rendezvous 2200 if we haven't given it the official name yet?!?!! Rendezvous 2200 officially named on 03/04/2012 - everyone told to watch out for shooting stars in the sky at night, daddy...
