THANKS GOD IT FRIDAY

I've been good with the food these last couple of days. The weekend though is going to be a challenge as we are going out both days.

Tomorrow I will meet my first blogger - ChrisH from Diet Coke Rocks and her hubby Saint Stew and the wee ones Brylee and Griffin from NZ. I'm really looking forward to meeting them and showing them what a beautiful city Sydney is. Hopefully I can post some pictures of our day out.

Sunday is a family get together with the out(in)laws which I'm am relishing - NOT! Hubby's side are not a close family and it's been several years since we last saw them. One of his sisters has terminal brain cancer and has been given 3 mths to live,so this is basically the reason for the get together, so I hope she is well enough to attend and has a good time.

I don't know anyone that hasn't been affected by cancer these days. It is so prevalent I'm sure it has a lot to do with the chemical/pollutive society we live in. It must be dreadful to be told you only have a certain amount of time to live with no hope. I often think how would I cope with this if it was me but I don't think anyone would know until it happened. When I get down on myself I think what it would be like being in my sister-in-laws shoes and my problems seem insignificant.

As we say here is Oz - "AVAGOODWEEKEND!"

I couldnt even begin to imagine what it must be like to have a time limit for my life... Bit like an expiry date isnt it.. very very sad I should imagine.
Take care and make the best of Sunday...
Family can sometimes suck... I know...

Have fun it'll be good to meet one of your blogging buddies. Remember calories don't count when eating with friends.

Have fun meeting Chris! Sounds like she will meet some other bloggers too. Lucky! I'm just so far over here in the U.S.
Know what you mean by the cancer. It hit real close to me with my best friend and my uncle having it. They are fighting it but I'm afraid the odds are against them. I too, use it for perspective in my own life, things aren't so bad, at least I have my health so far.

You are 100% correct in that chemicals are DEFINATELY one of the main reasons we are fighting so hard with the Big C. I think our immune systems and our bodies full stop, just don't have the ability to fight this stuff anymore. Our lives of convenience has led us to die much earlier! Try and have a good time with the inlaws, and have fun with Chris! I am sure she will be just as lovely in real life as in her blog!
