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!

Seeking a Bendier Me

I took the baby to 'baby dancing' this morning. As we pretended to be running around, swinging and playing in the park, I looked out of the window out at the beautiful spring day and I wondered why we weren't actually in the park!

I'm not feeling great at the moment - really tired and achy, trying to tell myself everything's ok - and I realised that sometimes I need to do the things I know would be best rather than what I think I should do. I don't think Hattie would have minded walking in the park, feeding the ducks and looking at the animals. Sometimes I don't want to be part of a group, doing what I'm told - and I don't think Hattie does either.

I need to get fit - doing those kinds of activities (dance classes with the kids for example) reminds me how much my body has suffered over the past couple of years. I'm so stiff and inflexible - I need to start doing stuff to become fitter, stronger and more bendy! Walking, Swimming? Yoga? Pilates? Riding? Running? What's your advice? Help me out here. I need some informed ideas......

Take Hattie to the park. Should is a four letter word.
