10 April 2008

I'm so excited...... we were officially given the keys yesterday.... and the moment I have waited for... for so long has arrived..... it doesn't seem that long ago I was showing the electrician through the frame....planning the power points....newly diagnosed with breast cancer....and wondering if Id actually ever live in it.

Its amazing how a few months makes such a difference..... because now I KNOW I'm going to live in it.... enjoy it... and I feel nothing but positiveness. today....Mum and Dad have arrived to help with the move....I'm feeling well for the first time since my chemo last week (hope it lasts).... I have 4 days off work.... and I'm raring to go... another new chapter in our lives is beginning.

So.....Ill be back.... in a few days.....from a new location....

    I am very happy that things are progressing well for your big move. It must be such an exciting time for you all as you look forward to living in the new house and starting things afresh.

    Great to read you have taken a few extra days off work to recover and get your strength back - well done sweetie. You need to take care of yourself.

    Wishing you all the best with the move and all the last minute arrangements. Hope your having a day full of fun and laughter.
