February 14 is just days away ! As we inch closer to event day, now I'm sending a final push for support and donations to help me achieve  $1000 of $180,000 fundraising goal in support of the Children’s Tumour Foundation.



Raising $10,000 could go towards funding valuable research in the treatment of NF. Imagine if they raised $180,000 or more! Your efforts can help children like Chenoa, who was diagnosed with NF1 at 2 years old and has had to undergo a permanent tracheotomy to help her breathe because a large tumour has grown wrapped around her heart, left lung and major vessels. help raise funds for valuable research to help give adults and children like Chenoa hope for a better future.

So what are you waiting for? Let's reach that $180,000 goal!

Things that make my heart lighter



We are closer to our target today !

Cake ...though it makes my bottomline heavier. The Gluten free Orange & Almond #2 engagement cake

Beautiful Flower Bouquet from Flowers for Everyone
Flowers for Everyone offered to send me some flowers , I decided my future daughter -in-law would love them instead. Win :) Wink.

We didn't hear the doorbell with the noise of the celebrations , so it was wonderful they left them still.
In exchange for the flowers I'm giving a shout out to their fabulous competition to win two stunning nights in a flower filled Love Cave.

How romantic and gorgeous would winning this prize be !




One lucky winner will receive a $3500 value prize consisting of two nights at this exclusive couple’s retreat in the Blue Mountains (1 hr drive from Sydney), over $1300 worth of romantic flowers and Ecoya candles adorning the cave, and a bottle of Moet et Chandon and chocolates on arrival.

My boys going back to school, not sure who love sit more ???? I do miss my sleepins.

Never have I ever


This prompt got me thinking. I've done a lot of things in 49yrs , still there are many things I haven't.

I fear creating a bucket list more then ever now, after three wire bristled brushes with cancer in three years.

I did write about it just days after I started my first chemo cycle threeyears ago.

 How to create a Bucket List

It's a rusty fire bucket now !


Everyone supposedly has at least one thing that they would really love to do before they die. In theory , I know for me , it's Ah, the bucket list ...hey ! I don't want to even think about it

A LONG while back I started a 101 in 1001 days , it's really a list of goals. Unfulfilled in my case after too many years.

Think like the meme 101 things before I ..., 40 before 40 etc . I'm up to 50 before 50.

While I might not actively have a bucket list that I maintain or write down - I know there is such an incredible wealth of things I could try ...better to fail than never try.

No-one knows how long or little time we have here on earth ! I feel fearful and apprehensive now still facing uncertain prognosis . Talking about my mortality does my head in , my friend Meg. passing away last week from the same malignant sarcoma and genetic disease (NF) as I have and now my young uncle in his 50's receiving devastating news of his cancer's return.

Still a Bucket list is an ingenious way to motivate myself to get the most out of life.

More.

To not to let it all pass me by, to make me feel that I can accomplish and experience something in this wonderful life. I know I don't want to be too lazy or chicken to try things just because I might fail.


This is not my bucket list , just a random list I found on google.
