Happy Birthday to Me :-)

I was woken this morning to a call from Richard with at least 8 army mates singing happy birthday to me down the phone, a male choir lol.

I opened presents and then came my big surprise a video from some special people in my life which my wonderful daughter had organised for me, it made me cry and laugh, just wonderful. Thank you to everyone who sent in messages to help her complete this surprise for me. It will be on tomorrows blog.

Facebook messages, emails and texts flood into to me with love from you all, thank you.

We head off for a day of fun, hoping for the sun to shine. We car danced all the way 🙂 singing and laughing. But I was late with my medication and got into trouble with the pain. We returned home and I couldn’t cope anymore and I hit the morphine 🙁

I have just woke up and I know that you will understand that I need to let you all know I’m okay but cancer pain is so hard to bear when it’s bad. I know I need to just enjoy the evening with family and not do a full post but I’m okay so don’t worry. If I haven’t replied to your messages I’m sorry but the signal here is so bad that I can’t see all of them but I will catch up tomorrow when we get home.

I’ll just leave you with a video of my special things which if you have read the blog from the start you will have seen it but you may have missed it. It always make me smile and sometimes cry when I watch it but life is about people, love and sharing those moments together.
