Breast cancer awareness month

As a Breast cancer survivor of 9yrs, I find I have different reactions to Breast cancer awareness month even on a day to day basis. 

Sometimes I resent the reminder that 9yrs ago this month I was recovering from a mastectomy & fretting over starting chemotherapy. That our first wedding anniversary & my 40th birthday was over-shadowed by my recovery.

Other times I’m grateful & humble I’ve made it 9yrs past some of the worst days of my life. 

Mostly I wish for every awareness campaign there were equal amounts of energy put towards finding a cure.

10May21 Spaghetti and meatballs with tons of parmesan cheese. Plus my favourite beer (a Mother's Day gift from my kids!) to wash it down.  Pretty satisfying.  #cooking #cookingforone #beer #spaghetti #meatballs #2021pad
15May21 I decided ages ago to give all my devices Doctor Who related names. Most are of strong women from the series. My  watch on the other hand, acquired this name because the I love the humour in it.  #applewatch #doctorwho #timeywhimey #self #cf21 #2021pad

30Apr21  My new office reverse cycle air conditioner. I was really torn about getting this, but it has made a big difference in my comfort and in my winter electricial usage. It's  much cheaper to run this than the ducted system when I'm not using the rest of the house. #torn #cf21 #2021pad #airconditioner #reversecycle
