This week is about disappearances! Our new chimney was finally completed (the bricks were spawling onto our neighbour’s drive). Mick the Brick’s noisiest days were the ones I was in hospital. Lucky me. Not so lucky for Jeremy as he had to deal with it all. On the first day, M the B’s ‘mate’ disappeared after 30 minutes never to return – didn’t like the ladder – and when he found a new ‘mate’, he didn’t turn up on his second day! Don’t they want to get paid?
I can happily report that the giant bagel left by the laparoscopy had deflated (another disappearance). I can’t believe 2 minute incisions create such discomfort – they must have had a good rummage around! One incision is in the belly button and one 5 cm below – on the zip line! I can wear jeans now and, great, the old muffin top has disappeared too! Onto nicer things: cake. I met with Penny this week and we went to Mochachoc for a catchup sharing holiday tales. We had one of Silvana’s Uruguayan treats – little cinnamon tartlets covered with white icing which disappeared (haha) down the hatch very quickly..
Also this week, whilst shopping, I popped into Angelina’s and had a rather nice vanilla and raspberry chocolate brownie cake. Never had anything like it before. Two cakes in one. Fab!
Well there was more tea and cake (in aid of the Royal Marsden) at the Dunsborough House Tulip Festival. I’ve had an entry carried forward in my diary for 2 years to go to this annual event and it was worth the wait. Tulips are my favourite flower and to see so many varieties and colours in the tulip meadow was really uplifting.
This is non cake but I met with Alan for a second hypnotherapy session. The problems he has helped people with are astounding – just by going back in the unconscious mind to the cause of the issue and making corrections. It’s fascinating. For me, we are following Simonton’s method of psychoneuroimmunology! We are using visualisation on the unconscious mind to change the chemistry of the cancer cells so the immune system can identify them and destroy them. Another disappearance! And one we want to happen! Only I have to wait for the results of the next CT scan to see if it works for me!
Do you know, it was a year ago this week that we met with Mr Cecil to hear him dismiss surgery due to the amount and spread of the cancer. We can remember it like it was yesterday….
