#5 chemotherapy, crafting and more Easter fun


I began the #5 21 day chemotherapy cycle yesterday. A long day in the hospital necessitated ensuring I brought my food and some crochet with me. My hair has become really curly in the last week and it has also started to fall out again. I was exhausted after it all, but could not sleep due to the anti sickness meds. 


I was glad to be awake as Mr Margie was hosting a dinner for our nephew Cole and a dear friend Des, whose wife Sandra is overseas at the moment. 


The Easter table was v pretty and the little car name tags a nice touch. 


There was even a spot of Easter crafting done. 


It was a laughter filled evening and a culinary success, 


and the gift bags in tune with the theme of the night. 


Despite a four hour sleep overnight I was delighted to welcome another dear musician friend Mark for lunch. Both he and Cole entertained me for the afternoon. 



My mum and dad dropped by too as did another dear friend Mirielle. She brought some lovely flowers from her garden. 


It was a busy day and I am hoping for a better sleep tonight. I read a quote today and it said laughter and a good nights sleep can cure any ails, and I had plenty of laughter today. 

Happy Easter everyone 🐣

Big hugs, 
Love Margie ❤️

That Easter table looked so cute.

It sounds all though the day was hard on you, you had some light relief with family and friends. Sometimes that is the best medicine.

Wishing you all a happy Easter.
