Since my chemo I've spent and idyllic weekend with my family. Lovely Mother came with me and then took me to our family home where most of my siblings were with my niece and nephew. My son came with his wonderful girlfriend and naughty daughter managed to fit in a few hours between her busy social life. On Saturday we had an idyllic lunch on the lawn with my dad's best man and his wonderful family consisting of his wife, four beautiful daughters and wonderful children. For some unexplained reason most of this family have has some type of cancer in their life and all are looking wonderful. One of the daughters had overran cancer and now has three beautiful children. The youngest being called Rosie who was 8 weeks old and lovely with the best hair I've ever seen on a baby. Made me feel very broody.
We drank loads of Rose wine and laughed loads. At one point I walked down to the river and looked back at the party. It looked like the kind of party you'd love to be at and I felt so happy to be part of this amazingly kind group of people. The love and kindness I get from my family is overwhelming I'm so aware of the worry they are going through with my illness and would do anything to take it away from them. I'm also thinking my daughters absence and busy social life is her way of coping with my illness. In which case I wish here good luck and strength. She is a lovely kind girl who I know is dealing with this the only way she feels she can.
