50 things that make me happy

I rather gave up on this: not feeling so terribly happy. It seemed like too much hard work but, after a lovely long weekend in Wales with super friends I'm provided with some new catagories. So, the next 10:

21) Lovely weekends in the countryside with my favourite friends
22) Endless grassy banks of daffodils
23) Seeing lambs do that little bouncy thing than makes them look like rabbits
24) Time with my mum
25) Expeditions down little country lanes - just to see what's there
26) Time - not on a schedule - feeling that I have time to dowhatever I want
27) Frou Frou: Must Be Dreaming
28) When Minnie the cat from a few doors up came into my flat at the weekend and plonked herself down in my doorway - looking like she'd moved in
29) Going to the cinema
30) The film White Christmas

I'm making no promises about the next 20......

Hey Sepha,
Thanks for the comments on my blog and you describe the process and the helplessness perfectly...

I really feel for you with the portocath...

Where are you now with your treatment?

Thank you for your comment on our blog. I've been hoping to hear from you for a while- I took some photos way back for you, but didn't have your e-mail address.

I have spent the whole day reading your blog from start to finish (well, up to this, the most recent post). I don't know what to say. There are a million things I want to say, but everything seems so cliched, so trite and selfish - I know you've heard it all before. But, I wanted to thank you. Not only for sharing your story and giving me an idea of what happened to you over the last year, but for giving me some insight as to what my dad is going through. You may or may not know that he has Lymphoma. I am not going to share a long 'I know someone who has cancer story' - I know you've heard plenty, but reading your posts has shed a bit of light on what he may be feeling & thinking. He is so quiet & will tell us what is going on physically & how green his nails have gone, but he will never tell us how he feels. I visited him in February and he looked so small and helpless and scared... I'll write more soon - can you send me your e-mail address?

Saying I look forward to reading the next installment doesn't sound right but I hope you know what I mean...

And, I hope you did get the Lavendar wellies for your birthday.

Dylan sends you a big slobbery grin and some more claps (he's becoming a bit of an expert now!)
