I hope you like this picture of the lovely teen. It was taken by my fabulous photographer sister in law Karen McGowran (see my blog list for her blog- brilliant wedding photographer based in the North East of England).
Anyway, while said son prepares for a four day trip to Germany next weekend ( Friday to Monday), I am recovering from my first three days of chemotherapy. I was glad I didn't get another allergic attack on the first day. Lots of drugs helped head that off at the pass.
It was a little bit nerve-wracking but I am still here. Feeling a bit worse for wear today, but glad the first cycle is over. I had a lovely day yesterday: lots of husband time. We had a coffee beside the lake in the warm sun, we had a drink at a local hotel overlooking the lake high up in the hills on their fabulous terrace ( Linthwaite House Hotel), we had a rustic picnic in the garden in the evening to finish it all off.
It was lovely. I intend to enjoy every second I can. I notice how much more I am paying attention to and enjoying.
