I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your messages of support on last week's blog. I did start to reply to you all individually but I became overwhelmed by the number of messages and also what was contained within them. I am truly sorry to those of you who were shocked by my news and my heart goes out to those of you fighting your own health battles… let's hope we can all win in the end. I will keep you up to date with my progress from time to time on here.
One of our Production Assistants at QVC, Jacqui, has set up her own business called 'Ruby's Boutique' making personalised jute shopping bags. This is the one she made for my mum with 'Tabby' on it… cute eh? I won't be able to see Mum this Sunday as she is going to a dancing school show but of course I will be speaking to her on the phone.
I will however be spending time with my two children, we are going shopping for a few bits and bobs to take away on holiday on Monday. I had delayed booking a holiday until I had the results of my latest blood test but they were good so Chris and I are going to Mauritius as a belated 35th Anniversary holiday. I've never been before, and it's on my 'bucket' list, so we are both really looking forward to it. I will take loads of pictures and put them on my blog when I get back.
As we sat down in Zizzi's restaurant with a glass of prosecco they also handed over a card. It said 'Clever Monkey' and Chris had stuck a small picture of my book cover and a label saying Chapter 60 on it. The relevance of this? Chapter Sixty in my book is about the year cycle of the animals and their elements in Chinese astrology and I am a monkey! I do love my family… and Gilly of course!
