Kate's Blog

Follow me if you will as I try to navigate through the ups and downs of my world.

I'm writing this blog to help me make sense of all that has happened - from my diagnosis with non-Hodgkins lymphoma while pregnant with my third child in May 2008
, through to my reflections on chaotic family life as I try to pick up the pieces of my life again.

The kids are so small, and I'm working hard to keep us all safe and to stay in remission.

Stay with me - it won't be all doom and gloom I promise!

Scotland by Bike

We're off to Scotland on Monday. We had intended to go tomorrow but I'm feeling pretty wasted and just can't get the packing done without staying up half the night which just isn't an option tonight.

So instead, our Saturday night is scarily like last week's!! Wine, X-Factor and good food - although I think it was pizza last week!

And - I bought a bike today. I had promised myself one for my 40th back in May and really wasn't up to riding one. But suddenly the urge overtook me and off we went to the bike shop. We're taking it up to the Highlands with us where I can re-visit my cycling skills without the whole city laughing at me. My bike's blue and my new helmet's blue - and I can't wait to ride it. All this feels very good. Hooray.
