It has been a good week.
We had some friends visit last week from Enfield – great to see you Harry, Jacky and Ray. We visited the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate to see their current exhibition – Turner and the Elements. Turner is not my favourite artist – I have a theory that all his sploggy skies cover a multitude of mistakes!
The flowers you brought Jacky are stunning now – all the buds have opened.
Tuesday’s and Thursday’s hospital trips to Maidstone were fine – just the usual delays which we have learned to live with. I had the trial drug and Day 1 of the last chemo session. I have Day 8’s chemo this Thursday and then it is finished.
Mother’s Day was just perfect. I opened an email from my granddaughter in Toronto wishing me a Happy NanaTess Day – such a clever girl for 9 months old.
I received a lovely bouquet from them later in the morning. The flowers are shown on the top of this blog entry. Then a Skype call in the evening – they were all looking so happy.
To complete my perfect day my son Jon and grandson Ethan came to visit. How gorgeous Ethan is now – running everywhere and great fun – I allowed him to splash the water in the birdbath and he loved it but got soaking wet (he doesn’t yet understand ‘gentle’). Anyway he had a change of clothes so no problem and I have found I can get away with anything now and no one tells me off! Received more pressies – a hand (or rather foot) painted pot from Ethan and some scrummy bath products from Jon – thanks guys.
Alan (just call him Masterchef) cooked a great roast pork lunch for us all – it was yummy!
Here is a photo of Jon, Ethan and myself.
Today was another gloriously sunny one so we decided to take a trip into Canterbury – some retail therapy and a fab lunch in Carluccio’s. It was lovely to see all the daffodils open and dancing in the breeze all around the city walls.
So yes it has been a very good week – lots of fun and lots of laughs.
Tomorrow sees the start of another busy few days medical wise – blood tests, CT scan, drug trial and the final chemo session.Onwards and Upwards!
