Back in August, in midst of our COVID lockdown, I received this beautiful handmade card in the post, complete with hand picked and pressed flowers and the most beautiful heart felt words adorning the pages. Not only was this a card from a ‘stranger’ but it came directly from the heart, someone who wanted to … Continue reading Kindness of strangers ✨
All a bit like his mumma. Just for different causes. An absolute essential item to have on whilst eating your breakfast though. Of course. Mask 1. Reeve 0. A year ago now, when I was first in Mexico, I purchased this mask (and another one) as a present for the boys from my ‘holiday’ or … Continue reading My little Mexican fighter
The one we all won’t forget, for both positive and negative reasons. Unfortunately this pandemic (or as Hux referred to it yesterday “the f-word virus” 😳, after some quick explanation of why we don’t say that, we moved on. But in truth, he is right. It is.) meant we all couldn’t take our usual Easter … Continue reading ISO Easter 2020
As quick as it came, it went. 3 days in Cancun, Mexico, at Hope4Cancer. I returned on Friday. This was my second follow up visit. My third trip in 7 months. It really is starting to become like a second home for me. I’m so familiar with the place now, although this time travelling alone, … Continue reading Mexico, we meet again.

*** NOTE: this is not the latest. I just found this in my draft box on WordPress 🙈. Exactly why you shouldn't try and attempt too much while doing the Hope4Cancer at home protocol.***** I've been a little MIA of late on my social media accounts since returning from Mexico and for very good reason. … Continue reading The latest
The day started really well this morning, we were up and had breakfast at the airport hotel. Straight into the airport, no cues, checked in, breezed through security and passport control. Stopped to fill up my water bottle then sat for an hour at a cafe whilst awaiting our flight. Went to leave cafe to … Continue reading En-route to Mexico
A day out with this soon to be 3yr old last Sunday while Hux went with Sean to his first AFL game. I treated Reeve to his first ever doughnut. When given the choice of any in the cabinet, he finally landed on this little unicorn 🦄 🍩. I basically drooled while he ate it, … Continue reading Priorities.
Last day of treatment here in Mexico today. I can’t wait to get home to my boys. It hasn’t been easy here - maybe at times it’s looked so, as it is certainly a beautiful environment to heal - but it’s been an emotional and very difficult roller coaster on so many levels and many … Continue reading Hope4Cancer – the ending
