More thank you’s, with pics!

Once again I am humbled by the generousity of my friends.

Today, I got through the post the most fabulous crochet blanket from my friend Sara, over at Sarandipity- http://sarandipity9702.wordpress.com

She hand made the blanket herself, and also knitted me some hats for when my hair falls out during chemo! The blanket is a work of art…words fail me. Thank you so, so much for a gift I will always treasure, Sara.

Here are some pics, my neighbours must have wondered what the hell I was doing wrapped in woolies on a mid 20’s/70’s day in August! đŸ˜€ My flash on my camera ran out of batteries so my overgrown garden seemed the best place to take the pics!!



I also wanted to include some pictures of other gifts that people have sent me. I am so touched by all of them, as well as the cards, emails and messages of support that I have been sent by so many people from all over the world. Without your support, I am certain I would not be coping with this nearly as well as I am.

Flowers from my fabulous colleages (and, from what I hear, blog-stalkers) at Fenix Solutions Ltd- the best telecom solutions providers in all of Ireland and damn fine people besides-


Absolutely stunning landscape photographs, taken and printed by my friend Tina in Virginia-


Two great books from Kulia at http://papayamom.com


A variety of great books, including one of all the US States with my friends names marked in it against their states, and some gorgeous get well banners made by Lori’s children-


Amazing flowers from my friend Bernadette McPolin, who has been a wonderful source of information through this all, as she’s a nurse-


More gorgeous flowers, from Ian’s employer, Tartan I.S.- greatly appreciated!


The biggest get well soon card the Ulster Hospital has ever seen, courtesy of Young Ones Day Nursery in Belfast, where my kids go to daycare- wonderful work, guys!!


Gorgeous flowers from McMillan Estate Agents, who I don’t even know- they work with my partner a lot and I am staggered at their generosity. Buy their houses!!! đŸ™‚


Flowers from family friends Bert & Eileen, which arrived today- aren’t they beautiful!


A book from my friend Shannon on the Jan Jubs, and some scarves from Netty!


Amazing Ansel Adams book from my online friends-


How blessed am I!! Thanks SO much to everyone who has sent something, even just their positive thoughts and wishes. It all means so very much to me.

    Wow! Look at all the loot! lol I’m so glad you like the afghan and that it made it safely (and fast). You are a very dear and treasured friend. Know that you are loved dearly!

    I love that you took the pics outside (what a perfect place for butterflies!) and that you hauled everything outside to photograph it. đŸ™‚

    I love that hat on you (it’s my favorite).

    If the hat fits………
    Young ones are my favourite Day Nursery (from my experience of them coming in to pick up and listening to other parents). Hope it’s working well for the boys and they are happy.

    Woah it’s like Christmas! I guess you’re on someone’s “nice list” đŸ˜€

    I’m glad that you took the pics outside too. I never got the chance to see your house before I left for New Zealand. Am loving the look of it – so much bigger than the previous home, although probably less pear trees!

    The hat looks great on you and it’s brilliant to see a pic of you now and again too. Having seen you here and read the next blog (sorry, with moving house I’m a day or two behind) I can clearly see that Ricky has your smile.
