When this is all over

…and I get the all-clear I’m going to have a big party and invite all blog readers.

Google doesn’t make it easy to be an official follower but I keep hearing that all sorts of people are reading this so I did a bit of hit-counter research; currently averaging 500 page views a week including visitors from the US, Australia and the Far East as well as the UK. What started with friends and colleagues seems to have spread to friends of friends and colleagues of colleagues and some people I don’t know.

So hello everyone and thanks for reading, whether you’re a silent follower or not. (And a special hello to Uncle John and Teresa).

Someone told me yesterday that as well as hair growing back thicker after chemo, skin rejuvenates itself too and looks younger. Something else to look forward to during dark moments.

Charlie doesn’t help – this is the latest iteration of the painting. Hideous, isn’t it? When he started painting me I had some wild notion that if the picture lost its hair then maybe I wouldn’t. It hasn’t quite worked. Still, it’s a work in progress…

    Thank you! maybe we should have kangaroo burgers to reflect the Ozzie contingent and some seaweed from Japan…

    As for the picture – someone said: 'it looks like you but it doesn't reflect your sunny personality.' Perhaps I'll keep it in the attic.

    I was a bit grumpy because Charlie made me sit still and focus on his ears and told me not to smile.

    Looking forward to this cake…

    all i can say is that it is great to see you. i haven't seen you for 3 weeks … and i am sorry that you had to be staring at Charlie's ear at the time. it definately looks a bit like you. like the time you were looking sideways at the fish restauranteur in Romania by the sea as he came up to us to give us an extra plate of whitebait and got a bit friendly. looking forward to seeing you soon, and lots of love.x
