Been doing some fixing up of the old homestead. On the left is the sample of cork floor I decided on for the kitchen. On the right is what arrived. 😳 I made the floor dudes stop and we are sending it back. 😢
In other news we also replaced the carpet in the bedroom and I could not be happier. 🙂
This is a great article.
Give it a read: ‘Going Flat’ After Breast Cancer
It echos all the reasons why I decided to go flat.
My friend Graham took this shot of us in 2014. I was fresh from treatment – my face still a little round and puffy from all the medications.
The statistics are staggering – many woman survive breast cancer but their marriages do not.
We do not take our bond lightly and we were so gentle with each other during my fight with cancer. It wasn’t easy but we made it through. Hold tight to your loved ones. 💜
My hair is different since chemo. It’s curlier (more poodle like). Thinner (boo) and WAY softer. Gerry says my hair before was like wire and you couldn’t run your fingers through without getting stuck. 😳 Now it’s much softer. While I miss my thick hair – I’m pretty pleased with all the new attention I get.😍 #iruineverything
Happy Father’s Day!!! I am so lucky to have a dad who encouraged me to be myself (even if everyone else thought I was weird). He’d say “Who gives a shit what other people think. What do you think?” 😜
He also taught me about the value in being creative, about following your passions and most important that it was ok to use swear words as long as you didn’t use those swears to hurt someone else’s feelings.
So HAPPY FUCKING FATHERS DAY!! Love you Dad!! 😍
I’m going back to my hometown of Regina Saskatchewan in a week to celebrate the 50th anniversary of my Dad’s theatre company.
I also hope I get to stand in this mud-room again.
I mailed off a letter to the owner of my childhood house in Regina asking if I could come visit. 😍#ihopetheysayyes

I lost my Mum when I was 10 years old and I’ve always been uncomfortable around Mother’s Day because it reminds me of what I lost.
Recently I started thinking about how lucky I’ve been to have so many woman step up to mother me.
Denise (my step mum) quietly cared for me behind the scenes (even when I didn’t want to acknowledge her as a guiding loving force in my life).
Linda (my best friends mother) had an open door policy at her house and was always there to hug me and give me a safe spot to land when I felt I had nowhere to go.
Auntie Bonnie has always been my champion and cheerleader and took me under her wing when I left home.
And wonderful Pat (my mother in law) who immediately embraced me when Gerry first introduced me as his girlfriend. I’m so happy to be a member of the Anderson family.
I think my Mum would be so happy and grateful to these woman for stepping in to love a little girl who needed love and attention. I feel so lucky.
Happy Mothers Day. 🙂
