Life can be a right shit at times.......

yep it can - it is soooooo unfair.....



Breast Cancer


affects all of us at one stage in life - whether it is ourselves personally or someone we know.....


It is a disease that twists and turns and sends you and family on a rollercoaster...

It is awful

It is horrible

and I wish no one EVER had to deal with it but we do.


Maurs is in hospital atm and looks so frail. She was sooooooooo close (just days away) to the final treatment of her battle with breast cancer - she went through the chemo to be told it had vanished and it looked like it had gone - just to be safe she had the lumpectomy and then 6 weeks of radiotherapy. A couple of weeks into the radiotherapy she got knocked for 6 by a lung infection - developed asthma as a result and hasn't really recovered to the point she was admitted to hospital on Sunday with pleurisy - her lung has been drained and the tube taken out today. However they have been advised by the oncology department that all the signs and symptoms she has had lately indicates she now has bone cancer... Please cross your fingers for her, pray for her or simply wish her the best as we are all going to need it to get through the next few months now. All along Maurs has been a tower of strength - I don't think anyone really knows the lows she has gone through and how ill she has felt and only she knows what she will face again. Mwah....



3 Angels Scrapping is holding a fundraising weekend for the cancer council - please get behind this weekend - even if you don't scrap you can donate - simply click on the 3 Angels scrapping link in my sidebar and look for the Girls Weekend in link....


Just a quick update on the rest of things around here - Geelong lost :( although we did have a fun day






and some scrapping....








take care and give those you love an extra special cuddle....you never know what is around the corner..

Mel I can't find the words that I want to express what I want to say to you since hearing the news about your SIL. I can't begin to imagine how much your family must be hurting at the moment. I hate Cancer it sux and it always seems to happen to the wrong people if you know what I mean. Hugs to you lovely.
