We're all going on a .... holiday

Getting quite excited now as it's been months since I've been away - six months in fact. Tomorrow we're off to a converted barn that's big enough to accommodate our family and some friends. I've negotiated a week's delay before my next chemo - they said it would make very little difference. I gather from my research that my cancer is a slow-growing type though I doubt it's got much chance of growing given what they've thrown at it.

I'm taking a laptop so I expect I will update this blog - but if I don't, don't worry about me. I'll be striding along the beach feeling the wind in my hair or riding on a steam train.


  1. Hi Sue,

    Just wanted to get in touch to say how pleased I am that you are feeling so well. An Internal locus of control is thought to be absoloutely the healthiest way forward in terms of psychological and physical wellbeing and you absolutely seem to have that nailed - so keep it up.

    I'm finding that your blogs really help me to put my own life, personal, family and professional into context. You open and honest stance is truly refreshing and I find myself wondering whether you know if other people undergoing the same treatment have accessed your blog? At the moment I'm stuck deep in the midst of research and clinical practice and have been working with someone with PTSD who seems to have taken leaps forward by writing about his experiences. I'm a great believer in the power of written words, not only for the cathartic effects for those that write them but also for those that read them.

    Anyway, I'll stopp wittering and get back to the books but just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you and hoping you and the family have a lovely holiday,

    Marianne, x
