Hello, my name is Carole and welcome to my blog.

I have been writing for many years in different forms; childhood stories, academic essays, portfolios for professional studies, journals, a research thesis but this is going to be altogether different. This will chart the story of my journey through cancer.

Here’s a little bit more about me – I’ve been married for 36 years to an amazingly inspirational man who is loving me through this new twist in our life journey together. We have four adult children, a son-in-law, two daughters-in -law and three beautiful grandchildren.

In my professional life, I work with children and teenagers and love every minute of it. I am having to take a break from that for the moment while I concentrate on getting well again.

I have a deep faith in God which is core to who I am.  The reality of this faith will be part of this story.

I love running, swimming and Pilates. I love going to the movies and theatre. But most of all I love being with friends and family, sitting round a table eating good food, drinking a glass of excellent wine, music playing and listening to their stories. And I do love dancing along to that music too!

You are very welcome to join me as I take the first steps into the next chapter of my life.
