It'd be rude not to share this song again. It's so sad that George is no longer with us, he died on Christmas day last year. I loved his music. I'm sure you all have yours but this is still my favourite Christmas song. It brings back so many memories.
If you're looking for non-stop wonderful Christmas music be sure to check out #ChristmasFM ( https://christmasfm.com/ ) this wonderful charity station runs every December from Dublin, broadcasting a live stream around the world. Each year they pick a charity to help. This year it's Sight Savers. You can log on or text a donation and hear a request while helping others at the same time. I have it on in the car and the kitchen and it's so cheerful! When I'm not well I often find that I only want to hear positive things. Maybe my mind is dealing with enough harsh stuff, so this is just gorgeous. Check it out if you can, your children will love it too.
I'm on new medication and had a rocky start, but I'm building up to the dose I need to be on and I'm crossing my fingers and toes it works. This is my only option just at the moment, so I need it to do the job. I know I've been quiet on here lately but I needed to batten down the hatches and do everything possible to get better. I've been in and out of hospital a lot with infections, blood transfusions and the usual delights that fellow cancer patients know all about. My pain is controlled, I'm beginning to deflate although my face and neck are still swollen due to tumours. All I can do is take each day as it comes and be grateful for the wonderful care, blood donors, doctors and nurses who are fighting the good fight with me. I will always have hope in my heart, never more than now. As I take each dose of tablets (twice daily) I swallow them and close my eyes begging them to work. They're not the easiest to take. I'm on heavy duty anti-nausea meds to hold them down and I've to fast before and after each dose. Timing is vital and set in stone so meals need to be eaten at set times. But none of these minor issues will matter one jot if they work. It's early days so I won't know if I'm on the right track for another while. For now I'll keep on trucking and keep on hoping.
I also hope you're all enjoying the build up to Christmas! I know it's easier said than done, but try not to get stressed. Try to enjoy the fun parts with the people you love. The rest really isn't important. Having said that - the glitter and tinsel and more decorations than you can shake a stick at are pretty vital. Let's face it, you can never have too much glitter in your life! So yes, some other things are still very important! If I'm a little quieter than usual it's only because I'm attempting to beat this cancer with a very large stick. I'm also writing away and I'm hurtling toward the end of the first draft of a new novel. So I'm still beavering away here while doing far too much online shopping. I had a very quick run around the shops yesterday and bought myself a pink fur jacket with a matching scarf with a white unicorn on the front. You can never have too many unicorns, let's face it. So I'm rising slowly from the ashes!
Enjoy Wham! and I hope you're all doing well? Thank you so much for the constant messages of support, you give me such a boost, I really appreciate it.
Love and Christmas light to each and every one of you
