Be Silly Not To

This has been my motto since a day in June 2014 when I had confirmation of the diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease.

It’s more polite than f*** it!

That’s the day that I knew I had to live my life well as the disease is terminal so no time to waste.

So much so that I started this in May and have left it alone until now November 30th!

My family and friends mean so much to me. Quality time with people I love is more important that a whole bucketful of things I might once have wished for.

I guess being diagnosed at 60 helps quite a bit as I’ve lived a good life, have two brilliant daughters and had a job I loved, teaching infants. My partner Jeff is so supportive, I feel very lucky.
