remembering to breathe

I've been thinking.
Thinking too much, I think.
I am holding my breath - until Tuesday.
Then my beloved man undergoes his second round of surgery for thyroid cancer.
He is terrified.
And so am I.
But I won't show him - he and our daughter are needing me to be strong.  Be positive.  And I shall be.
Everyone in the medical field is saying that everything is going to be ok.
That this is treatable and he will be fine, and being an ex nurse I know this already - however.......
I've loved this man since I was 16.
He said it was love at first sight - for me it was love at first laugh, and I've been laughing ever since.
That was so many years ago and yet it was yesterday.
He will get through this.
He will be back in my arms.
We will listen to his beautiful voice and he will make us laugh again.
Until then I'm just remembering to breathe.

A quick update


We had a little hiccup and the proverbial hit the fan this week (thought I'd start off with a couple of cliches there) with hub's pathology results showing cancer.  So more surgery it is.  However prognosis is good and I'll be back to regular blogging - just going to be the teensiest bit busy for the next week or so as we organise things.

Here's something a little happier to look at .......

another little apology

for disappearing again.
It's not that I don't love you.........
It's just that I've had a few high school info nights to attend,
a hubby with an injured back at home,
a wedding to attend,
a daughter to run around to various activities,
a French Film Festival to attend,

the same hubby about to have surgery,
a job to go to,
a house to maintain
and a recent case of insomnia (maybe I'm overtired)

I'll be off for about a week while hubs recuperates from his operation.
Hopefully I'll have had some sleep by then...............

Too much of a good thing?

My wonderful and glamorous neighbour has had a closet cleanout and given me a stack load of clothes.  I was in fabric heaven - the lady has exquisite taste and the clothes feel heavenly against my skin as well as looking tres chic.   I just have one problem.
My closet is now overflowing and I haven't even brought down my Autumn/Winter things from the attic.  We're heading into that in between time when the weather goes even stranger than this Summer has been and I will be needing a few cardies etc soon.  Where shall I put them?  I was too overwhelmed to take a photo of my chaos.  Time to do a serious rethink about my storage.
Any solutions anyone?
