  • Blog Post: Trying to find the right balance

    What always makes me more confused (and sometimes angry!) is people's opinions, whether it be from a professional or a random person four doors down from your house. Everyone has an opinion on my husband's cancer! Some opinions are very welcomed, others take with a pinch of salt and smile...
  • Blog Post: Seven years of auto-pilot...

    After over seven years of having cancer in mine and my husband's life, I finally feel it's time to de-stress a little and see whether writing is therapeutic way of managing all the thoughts in my head (so sorry for all the babble!) Way back in 2007 when months and months of misdiagnosis happened...
  • Blog Post: Woohoo!!

    Set up Justgiving page for my skydive. Deposit is all paid, just gotta ring on Monday and sort out an official date for it, excited isn't the word! Dad's starting his chemo, radiotherapy and avastin on the 9th, think he just wants to get this all started now, sitting round waiting is no...
  • Blog Post: Feeling guilty today

    I'm in a really horrific miserable mood today, and I feel so guilty about it. I don't feel like I have the right to feel like this when it's my dad that is ill and I'm perfectly healthy, everyone else in the family seems to be holding it together just fine. Trying to put on a happy face...
  • Blog Post: Can't get my head around what's happening

    Came back from uni almost a month ago to visit the family and no one was home. Turned out my dad had been taken in for tests as they believed he'd had a stroke but once they did a ct scan they found out that actually he had a tumour on his brain. We all tried to remain positive, he's young (only...
  • Blog Post: Gonna miss you dad

    One week ago today I lost one of the most precious things in my life..... my dad. It was 7 weeks since he was admitted into hospital til the day he died from a brain tumour and yet it seems like a lifetime ago. Not a day went by where I didn't go to see dad and now he is gone I am left with such...
  • 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: 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...
