I consider myself one of the luckiest people in the world!

This might appear a strange thing to say having recently been diagnosed with an incurable cancer….but it’s true!

I have a loving husband who is my lover, best friend and soul mate.

Two beautiful children of whom I am intensely proud, and an adorable grandson.

Family that love and care for me including a very special globe trotting sister who has just on impulse headed off to the Gambia today to help with this charity: http://www.gambiahorseanddonkey.org.uk/
Kate isn’t usually known for her impulsivity so I am really proud of her for grasping the opportunity presented to her on Saturday.

And……the most amazing friends and colleagues who have showered me with flowers, cards, chocolates and gifts. I love prizes as my dear friend Jaqui would call them.

Just look at what I received today from the team of school nurses, health visitors, nursery nurses , admin workers and the rest of the lovely people at the Hitchin office. I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect gift!
There really are some lovely people in the world.


Not only that I live in paradise looking out on open skies , trees and fields.


Some people never have even one of these things so I am sure you can agree that I really am very, very lucky!
