keep smiling...

One week into my chemo,
so far so good!..... if you can say that about chemo?!

I now know what it feels like to be flattened by a steam roller and feel 105!!!
One down 5 to go, and that feels good and keeps me smiling,
just like the things around me this morning:)

my new plate :)

my special hospital card from Chris and the kids, 
from Raw art Letter Press here

This little robin arrived through the post yesterday from the very kind Kate Slater which brightened my day so much, thank you Kate x

 my den of smiley faces!

kids count down... 

gorgeous cards and gifts,
Chris bought me my faves, sunflowers, which have constantly brightened the house and look ace in this fab Rob Ryan vase,

keep smiling:)
Have a fantastic 1st of September xx
