The velvet peanut

The velvet peanut

So now it's April...the chemo is done, he now has two brand new pints of blood inside him and we can rest until the next appointment on 1st June...if "rest" is the right word!!

In the meantime I am getting less pissed off with the fact that I have had to "give up" my Head of Department role due to Gordon's illness and the absences they have caused me...I'm sure this must be against some employment law but life is too short to worry!!

Good things to come are another visit to the lovely Matthew Manning on Monday, a gig with Dara O'Briein on Tuesday...that's us going to see him not actually performing with him!! Then off to see my sister & family on Wednesday for a couple of days...more hurrahs!!

It will be strange being back at school in two weeks after so many weeks away but part of me is looking forward to it- plus it's then only five weeks till half term and a visit to Shambhalla in Glastonbury for Gordon's 51st birthday and our 3rd wedding aniversary...fab!
