A big HELLO to everyone!
Well, what can I say!!! I am totally blown away by your kindness and generosity 😀 . Thank you all so much for my lovely television, I still can’t believe it, and can’t stop smiling 😀 😀 😀
You don’t know how much it will mean to the whole family, not just me! I will be able to rest more as my girls can pile into our super kingsize bed and snuggle up together. When the girls go to bed at night, I can also go to bed and watch my tv 😀
As Ann has mentioned in my ‘update’, I have had two operations in the last 3 weeks, but despite this, I am feeling well in myself and VERY positive. I have so much support from medical professionals, it actually makes me cross!! Of course I appreciate their knowledge and support, but all I keep saying is the same thing – when you have cancer, you have as much support as you need, but when your child dies, there is nothing!!! That is why I am so grateful to Madame Butterfly and to all you wonderful butterfly family members 😀
I totally accept that I am fighting cancer and all the treatment that comes with it. The only thing that gets to me is ‘other people’ and their stupid comments 😡 !! It is very similar to when Grace died. I have to hear the long drawn out comments about Auntie Mable who had cancer of the big toe nail etc, and then there are the people who are scared of me as they think they might catch it, and then there are people who go way over the top and want to do everything and even breathe for me 😆 . So I am quite glad that ive got a drain in at the minute which means no visitors to minimise the risk of infection. Ive decided that I am going to write a book when I am better and make lots of money 😆 . So far, this comment from my Auntie is in the top 3 of my funniest comments: “Oh Anne, I am so sorry to hear – well you know……. my friend Maureen had the ‘big C’ last year, shall I ask her if you can borrow her wig” 😮 . After I realised that my Auntie was in fact serious, I thought well, we are in a recession,so I shouldn’t knock the offer 😆 . So if you see me about in a grey curly wig, you’ll know that Maureen kindly let me borrow hers 😆 . The best of it is, I havn’t even been told if, or what type of chemo I may need 🙄
Anyway, I will let you good people get on with your day. Again, I can’t thank you enough for all your good wishes and of course my lovely sparkly tv, I am such a lucky girl. I couldn’t believe it when Lincoln walked in with a lovely wrapped package – and I mean the television 😆
Lots of love to you all and I will keep you updated with my progress and when I have the all clear, we will all go out and have a sherry 😀
THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN

To my beautiful POSH friend ‘Anne’ with the ‘E’ . Thank you for your update and letting everyone know how you are. I’m so glad you have told the wig story, it makes me laugh every time. I expect to hear you are snuggled up in bed tonight with your babies watching the telly.
Have a good day and as Rach said, I think a lot of people will be smiling now they have heard from you. Positive thoughts today and always … And as for the Sherry – yuk!!! You can keep that – mine will be a Brandy thank you 🙂
Your not so posh friend Ann without the ‘E’ xxxxxMay 19, 2012 at 8:57 am #1624Anonymous
I’m so pleased that you liked the gift. It will last longer than flowers!!
Fantastic to hear you sounding so positive. The comments are just ridiculous, I think you are right, you should write a book! Are you planning on wearing the wig when we go out for that sherry? After all that’s what old ladies drink! Mine will be a glass of champagne thanks! In fact, let’s make it a bottle.
Lots of love & enjoy watching the tv from the comfort of your duvet!

I am so pleased that your tv is everything you wanted and just love the picture of you and your girls snuggled up watching it.
It is also lovely to hear your stories and I agree with Max you should write a book as you definately have a way with words, not only can you make us smile but you also always have the right words of support for others.
I am sure that this is a time of many emotions for you and your family, so we are here to listen as and when you need us and in the meantime keep that fantastic sense of humour going and give the girls a big cuddle and enjoy your tv.
Look forward to catching up and again I am with Max make mine a champagne.
Lots of love
