Happy Holidays!

Christmas outfit: gold sequin skirt and black sweater

I know most of you aren’t going to be online today to read this, but I ended my last post on a bit of a downbeat note (er, despite the fact that it was supposed to be a post about positivity!), so I wanted to just quickly pop in today to wish you all a very happy holiday season!

As for me, well, yesterday’s blood results were pretty good, and showed that the hormone level is still dropping steadily. It hasn’t quite hit zero yet, though, and as I’d stupidly allowed myself to hope that might happen, and that there would be no more hospital appointments looming over me, I have to admit to being quite disappointed when I found out I’d have to go back again next week – and probably the week after that, too, if the current rate of decrease continues. The disappointment was also pretty stupid of me obviously, because by getting my hopes up, I’d basically allowed myself to turn what was actually a very positive result into a rather negative one: it’s one of my special skills. I should probably stop doing that, huh? One to add to the New Year’s Resolutions List, I guess…

Anyway, although this isn’t going to be quite the Christmas we’d hoped for this year, it should still be a happy one: we’re all still here, after all, and if there’s one thing this horrible year has taught me, it’s that that’s not something you can take for granted. However you’re spending the next few days, then, I hope you’ll be safe, happy, and surrounded by as many of the people you love as possible – have a good one, guys!

    I’m with Suz Tam on this….you brighten my days whenever you write, whatever you write about…thank you for allowing me a glimpse into your life. The best thing is that you can always make me laugh when you let your humour out…(the wild beast…) and that is a wonderful gift. I wish you all the best and a much improved 2017….xx

    You’re not being stupid, just hopeful. Still good results and as for Christmas not being what you planned, well you and Terry have many more ahead of you.

    Wishing you and your family a peaceful Christmas and enjoy your time together. Xx

    Hugs and warm wishes. All the good (trendy) hygge stuff, too. It’s funny that cozy and candlelight has to be a trend, huh. Have a good holiday being with those you love!
