Sad News

Hi everyone. I'm really sorry that I considered not even posting this here on my blog. 

And then I thought: I'm known many of you for ten years: first with my 'My Life and Vegetables' blog, and then with this one.  I've made firm frienships through my blog.  I've learnt new skills and shared my progress in the crafting world with many of you and you deserve the truth.

The fact is, 6 months before I would have been declared fully cured and cancer free, it seems cancer has done the sneaky and it is now in my liver.  As such it is unfixable.  I'm hoping to go on a trial that may slow it down but there is no cure.

My children and husband are, as you can imagine, really upset.  I feel so guilty for being the one responsible for breaking their hearts.  I only found out on Thursday and on Friday I had my funeral planned.  I'm busy transfering everything over into my husband's name and all I can say is that dying is very overated.  Seriously, is there really a need for so much red tape?

We are trying to focus on a day at a time and making continuous 'new normals'...quite difficult when you consider I probably wasn't that normal to begin with.

So, well, that is the news.

I'm going to be closing the business soon so I can spend what time I have left with my amazing family.  Thank you for being part of my journey...it's been a blast right?

  3. I want to take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you, to you.... When I joined the blogging world you welcomed me and I am so happy to call you a friend. But you have been much much more than that to me, you have been words of wisdom when I really needed it, you have been a rock when I have been really low... But most of all you gave me courage and determination to go on. Making me smile through all the tough bits that have gone on with all my health concerns. I adore you and your friendship... I was so upset to hear your news... I have loved stitching your designs and loved our chats.... I feel honoured to of been a part of your journey. Love to you and your family.... Enjoy every last minute xxx
    A parting smile 😊 for your onward journey :) xx

  14. Gaynor, I immediately thought of Winston Churchill. "Never, never, never, give up." I will next say, my husband's uncle had cancer in his liver less than five years ago and was told he had extremely small chances of living. He had surgery, AND MASSIVE PRAYERS FROM FAMILY AND CHURCHES. He lives! The doctors themselves declared it a miracle. They did. I am praying for you!

  21. I am so sad, sitting here looking at one of the little owls you made so long ago. You have been an inspiration to me throughout this struggle of yours, and you continue to be.You are stronger than you know, and I hope that you will prove those doctors wrong, one more time. You and your family are in my prayers daily, and will continue to be. Miracles do happen. Hugs, healing thoughts, good karma...thank you for being the person you are.

  34. We never know what is around the corner or what life holds for us, it is news like this which makes us all think about our own mortality, keep fighting and try to be positive do what you want to do.

  36. I'm so way behind on blog reading what with a holiday and then a little excursion.
    There I was sitting looking out to sea, a green bench and a bag of chips from French's thinking of you, I was thinking to myself what a lovely friend I had made and how strange through technology and the internet we'd shared our love of this little bit of Norfolk coastline. You are never far from my thoughts when I wander along the sea front.

    I'll be praying for a little miracle and sending {{hugest of hugs}}
    Blessings to you and your family xxxxx
