Our first daffodill and other things...

G'day. Well, it's been a while (again) since I last wrote something. So much has been happening.

Our very first daffy bloomed some weeks ago and it is always a welcome sight. I really must plant more bulbs next year. I have been saying this for some time and am yet to do it....

My son recently turned 40 and two weeks before that event he moved into his beautiful new home. His birthday was on a Wednesday, so on the Saturday before, he had about 40 friends and family gather to help him celebrate and to oh and ah at the fancy new digs.

I am doing ok. Hair is slowly growing back. I start radiation in the next few weeks. 6 weeks @ 5 days a week. I will commute to the city by train everyday, this is an hour and a half each way. It will be no joy doing this, but, hey, it could be worse.

My contribution to the party. I made 60 of these mini quiches and they were yum, even if I do say so myself...

Take care. Liz...


  1. So good to hear that you are doing well Liz. What a lovely home your son has...somewhere nice to visit!

  2. oh quiches!
    your son's house looks lovely...
    glad you're doing OK (and a lot better soon), take care

  3. LIZ! I was going to email you this week and here you are, looking fab. So glad to read and even see you. That radiotherapy hike will be arduous enough, but finite. My mum found hers manageable because there was such an end in sight. Well done. You are amazing xx ps Loving that house...

  4. What a delightful birthday and what a great son, throwing his own party! Good luck with the radiation. Will someone be traveling with you on the train?

  5. Lovely to meet your family. Take good care of yourself.

  6. Hi Liz! You look great! I'll be thinking of you and praying for you as you commute to your radiation appointments.

  7. Hi Liz,
    I love your pictures! I'm the same way with daffodils. I only want them in the spring, when it's too late to plant them. In the fall I'm too lazy. I hope the time goes fast for you until your treatments are over. God bless, Jamie
