Popping by ...


October is a beautiful month. The month when Nature wears her best outfit of gold and red.
So far this year, October has brought some beautiful autumnal sun.
It was on such a sunny day last week, that I spent a slow, peaceful afternoon with both lovely daughters and Tiny Girlie.
We passed a few leisurely hours wandering through the gardens at Burghley House.
It was a time of much needed outdoor therapy.



A few weeks ago, beautiful younger daughter was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma.
It was a complete shock; a bolt from the blue. Since then, we have been plunged into an alien world of hospital appointments, scans, blood tests and now chemo. Our daughter has faced it all with courage and a sense of humour. We are full of admiration for her.


As a family, we have also been touched by the huge amount of love and concern which has been shown our daughter. She has received good wishes from near and far.
Mr digandweed has likened it to a network, a grid of tiny lights which has been illuminated, each light connected directly or indirectly by love for our daughter.
It is a lovely, positive, life affirming image.
 The treatment will take her to just before Christmas and we have been told that there is no reason why she should not make a complete and full recovery.
Thank you all for your kind comments on my last post.
Best wishes.

    1. Thank you very much Liz. I think your mum was right. I'm sure one day scientists will discover that the link between mind and body is far greater than we think.x

  5. I'm sure the support of a loving family will be a great support for your sweet girl. That will make so much difference to her recovery. Do look after yourself too. Will be thinking of you and sending positive thoughts.
