No health and safety rules back then!

Yesterday Jarvis kindly sent and old photo he had come across of is both playing on some sort of rubbish tip, probably in the back yard. We could only be about four or five. How times have changed. We obviously didn’t come to any harm and it looks like we were having fun. I haven’t changed much as I still enjoy rummaging around looking for exciting things to turn into some kind of art project, although I really ought to sort out the piles of eclectic pieces I have collected over the years and have a good sort out.

Receiving the photo and email really cheered me up during our 9½ hour stint at the hospital yesterday. The time was also broken up by a relaxing aromatherapy shoulder massage carried out by the complimentary therapist at the Macmillan Centre within the cancer unit. However towards the end of the day as the rush hour time approached we were both getting pretty frustrated and were definitely ready to come home. a delicious shepherdis pie awaiting thanks to Kate and one of her 15 minutes recipes.  15 minutes doesn’t relate to the time it must have taken to prepare and cook our much appreciated supper, but to Kate and Anna’s successful healthy eating programme. The girls who have already taken part in last years successful 12 week programme have shared their experiences and amazing changes to their relationship with food and as a consequence they have all lost an amazing amount of weight.

The programme includes individual coaching, cooking together days, group support and a sharing of recipe ideas put together by experts in nutrition. Kate has also started to write some interesting and informative Podcasts.

There are no diets, no pills, no meal replacements and no calorie counting. No food is banned and you can have it all, just not all of it – all of the time!

I don’t apologise if this is a repeat of something written about this in a previous blog, because anything worth doing is worth shouting about, in my book (or in this case Blog).

Today Kate is accompanying me to the hospital but we shall stop off at the Cancer Hair care charity for a spot of pampering. All these little extra’s charity run services and the care shown really do make a difference to those who find themselves living with Cancer. Anything that can make the emotional experience feel slightly more bearable does, I believe, have a direct link with the physical working of the body and helps to hammer those cancer cells back down again. This time around I have leant to take all the help I can get.

Today may be another very long day but Kate and I will make the best of it and Colin will have a break and the time to work on some of the many projects coming our way.

I hope your days a good one, and if you are ever anywhere near Euston Road on the first three Wednesdays and Thursday of the month, do pop into the Parallel Universe to say hello. It really is an out of space experience.
