4th Anniversary .....

Breast Cancer
.... Claire is cancer free.

4 years ago she had a mastectomy, but didn't need chemo or radio. Since then she has had her annual check-ups on the other side and is fine.

She hasn't worked for those 4 years on the 12th Feb, and normally spends the day with Tim, but this year he couldn't get the time off work.

So, after taking Jiffy for a walk, I picked her up and we drove to Street to "Clark's village". Claire bought lunch, and then we went shopping. I was quite restrained, only buying a couple of pairs of jeans on special offer, and a present for a friend's birthday. However we did also go in the Cadbury shop (enough said!!).

On our way home we had a huge diversion, but as it wasn't bad weather it just meant longer to chat!!

So, a nice way to celebrate her anniversary - it was so lovely to see her looking so happy (while spending money!!)


But I mustn't forget the February Meme, as well.

February 12 - How old were you the first time you made love? Was it a mistake?
Ummm, not applicable!

February 13 - What do you love about yourself.
Nothing really.

It is good news for Claire ... Mum also had breast cancer, but just before she died her consultant told her that her medication was working ... so another story of good news.

Aww - I think you should find something to love about yourself!!

Great to have a clean bill of health for your s-i-l.

I have a negative vision of myself, and have never been able to get over that :(

Yes, it was great to celebrate 4 years of Claire being cancer free

Yay for cancer free! I've been making "knitted knockers" at a local group and it's close to my heart!

It was great to celebrate a positive anniversary with Claire.

Haven't heard of the knitted knockers, but as my paternal Aunt has also had a mastectomy, and my Mum was recovering via medication, it is certainly a condition close to my heart, as well.
