Awake in the night!.

  Count your blessings one by one! That song is going around my head at the moment, there’s  nothing like being sat amongst a room full of sick people dealing with various cancers to give you a kick back into reality. After a positive consultation yesterday where I was described as borderline with a non life threatening blood cancer I can only feel relieved 😅 I’m booked in for a bone marrow biopsy at the beginning of March if my blood tests don’t come back better, hopefully my bloods will… Read more Awake in the night!.

Awake in the night again!

After a wild and windy day yesterday all is calm, the full moon is shining through my window and I’m wide awake.

Then I was wide awake 🤔 wondering if that formation of numbers had some… Read more Awake in the night!
