A reason to celebrate?!

geschrieben von Birgit am 05/09/2018 19:10

I finished chemo two years ago.
Twenty-four months which I should have spent celebrating and enjoying life. But I haven’t…




What’s keeping me off?


It took me nearly two years to realize: the fear of secondary cancer!


I’ve been strong whilst undergoing chemo as having had all checks, scans etc. no signs of secondary cancer have been found and I told myself "You can do this! It’s worth it!”


The operation has been part of the treatment and as there have been a few other operations in the past I wasn’t scared of undergoing another one. It’s been just a tick on my to do list.


I’ve tried to return back to work and back to normal as quick ...

The beast from the east

The beast from the east (part 1 and 2)


It’s Sunday the 18th of March and I should be at the Totnes Good Food Sunday whilst I’m sitting in front of my computer writing my blog. Not sure how I feel about it as I’m enjoying a day off whilst the snow is falling outside creating a wonderful looking landscape. I’ve been already out earlier walking my dog and left the first footprints in the snow. What a magical moment!


A moment I forget about the impact it’s having on our business! And not just ours…! I recon all small and even large businesses are suffering from the unusual circumstances (unless you are selling icing salt or any equipment to do with snow).


It’s catching everyone at a time when the sale is already down. January and February are usually quiet as some have overspent on Christmas ...

Hallo Ihr Lieben,
seit langem mal wieder in deutscher Sprache...
Die Wogen haben sich in den letzten Wochen ein wenig geglaettet. So langsam fuehlt es sich so an, als wenn sich mein Leben normalisiert.
Und schon wieder ist ein Jahr vorbei (mehr oder weniger)!
Vieles passiert, einiges worauf ich haette verzichten koennen... Und dennoch habe ich das Gefuehl, alles passiert aus einem bestimmten Grund.
Heute morgen bin ich mit dem Auto unterwegs gewesen und habe (wie immer) Radio gehoert. Dabei wurde der Brief einer Hoererin vorgelesen, die traurig ist, da sie sich so gar nicht auf Weihnachten freuen kann. Sie schrieb, dass sie alles vorbereiten wuerde wie schon in den Jahren vorher, aber von vorweihnachtlicher Stimmung keine Spur.
Wie gut ich das nachfuehlen kann!
Sie versuchte nun herauszufinden woran es wohl liegen koenne... und kam drauf, dass sie in den vielen Jahren ...

It's the time of the year...

geschrieben von Birgit am 03/12/2017 22:29

Good evening,
It's the time of the year which makes us feel different. The days are different as it's getting dark at approx. 4:00pm and as it's colder than usual we snuggle up on the sofa more often. The first decorations are up and everyone is more or less excited about Christmas...
I'm usually far to early into Christmas: the first songs are played at least in the middle of November and our decorations are out of their boxes at the same time as well.
But this year it's different - I'm different... just can't get into the spirit of Christmas.
I'm enjoying decorations and watch the villages and towns changing day by day but I'm just not into it. Christmas songs don't do their job at the moment.
Having thought 2017 would be a better and positive year (considering what I've been through in ...
