S is feeling better today. She had a decent sleep.
It's a beautiful sunny day today but I'm confined to the house looking after S. I've been doing the usual boring chores and have just broken off from a heap of ironing to post in my blog.
This is another picture from Sunday at Ness Gardens. P has taught me to look for details to photograph. I liked the way the ivy was clinging to the tree so firmly and yet so gracefully.
I have just signed up for Cancer Research's Race for Life 2007. A group of us from our village do this each year. I don't actually run as my arthritis won't allow but I always try to beat my own time. Last year was a struggle. I was in so much pain near the start I thought I might have to drop out. However, with the support of my friends i was able to finish. There is a wonderful atmosphere on these events - everyone is helping everyone else on.
Since the race last year, a friend lost a daughter to cancer,my friend K's mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and another friend received a cancer diagnosis only this week. It makes me realise how precious life is and how much we need to cherish every day.
