Today turned out to be a little frustrating as I got to the hospital to have my chemo and after sitting there for nearly two hours was told that there had been an error and my chemo had not been prepared. By this time the pharmacy was shut and it could not be made. I was really angry at the time as I am going away tomorrow and have a busy schedule on Monday. Ioannis calmed me down and in the end I agreed to go in first thing on Monday to have my bloods done and order the chemo and then I shall go back in at the end of the day after my meetings and have the chemo. I then have a clear diary on Tuesday and Wednesday to recover. It also means that I get to enjoy my weekend away without feeling rubbish. As Kim says, everything is always in perfect balance.
I am going to Cornwall tomorrow for the weekend for Danielle Marchant’s Pause retreat. I am so looking forward to it. I went on one of these retreats last year and it was so good for my soul. I was surrounded by amazing women and out in nature. We all bonded really deeply and had a wonderful weekend. I cannot recommend these retreats highly enough, especially if you are a busy woman who never gets a chance to just unplug for a few days and be pampered and surrounded by supportive, nurturing ladies.
I am taking my art supplies with me and am going to just play and doodle and see what I create. I feel that I really need the space to do this and The Pause will provide exactly that.
I probably will not blog while I am there as I will give myself a chance to unplug and be technology free for a few days. However, I will take my laptop anyway and if the mood takes me and I get an urge to share what comes up for me while I have some stillness, then I will be able to do so.
Ioannis gets a whole three days to unwind himself and do boy stuff. He loves getting lost in computer games as his way of relieving stress as well as going for a run. So he can do that and catch his breath.
So until next time, it’s time for me to press pause….. xx
