Here I am

A grey, misty, dank November day.  The first day of no radiotherapy after 4 weeks of  4 hour round trips to the wonderful Radiotherapy team at Addenbrookes.  A tower of bills and forms and VAT returns that need to be sorted and paid for the farm.  Piles of teenage daughters' "stuff" all over the house that need rehoming.  Christmas presents that need to be sorted and wrapped - I know, I know but when you get a cancer diagnosis, life is uncertain so you get organised.  A new film to be written on Signs and Symptoms of an Eating Disorder and another on Parents Don't Cause Eating Disorders.  A conference speech to organise.  So I decide to start a blog.

Today is a day for reflection all over the world.  It is a day when we remember those who have given their lives for us both in the two World Wars and in more recent conflicts.  I defy you to listen to this, and not be moved.  I wear my poppy with pride.
