Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

A Catch Up Post

on August 21, 2013

This post is particularly for my children – I have been told off tonight for not posting anything for a while!  The truth is, I have been exhausted and I couldn’t be bothered turning the computer on.  In fact, so exhausted that yesterday I had to say no to going to Pink!  Oooh, it even hurts to think it, but Pippa was so tired and I was barely able to comprehend my own thoughts (sometimes that would be a good thing at the moment).  I simply would not have done the tickets justice and I am very glad for who went instead of me – I hope you all enjoyed the show.

So, for my darling boys who are at home, and for my Pippa who wants to share a couple of this week’s fun things, here’s what we’ve been up to…………..

On the weekend we said goodbye to our beloved Chelsea (Pippa had such a fun time at the party) who is going off to follow her rowing dream in the US and come back a bigger champion than what she already is.  We had such a fun but relaxing weekend without the long drives – it was great; our second home.   Pippa also had another game of glow in the dark mini golf with Phoebe (photos are pointless).

On Monday we watched St Joey’s win the school footy Grand Final and visited a friend in hospital.

Other than that a relatively quiet week –  a dinner out and some board games.  Today the staff at Peter Mac started to make a short movie for Pippa as a keepsake.  She and Elly are writing their own background song (changing the words to Mylie Cyrus’ Party in the USA) for it and clothes were chosen and hair styled especially for the occasion.

This evening Pippa and I went to see the movie “Now you See Me” at Gold Class, Jam Factory.  Great fun movie and I hope that our own magic can be created in time.  She loved the Gold Class experience and we think we might treat the boys next time they come down.  We have had a little giggle tonight as on reflection I have realised that perhaps the staff may have been a little overwhelmed by an above mentioned celebrity who I now realise is being “guarded” by her minder in the background as I unknowingly snapped a photo of Pippa for our own purpose to create our memories.  Mistakes happen, we ended up being taken to the (very) wrong movie in the wake of someone else’s entourage.  All was fixed in time for us not to miss the correct movie and I must commend the Gold Class Jam Factory for their above excellent handling of the situation.  As far as I’m concerned it has just created another story to tell on our journey.

We have also continued to enjoy the cafes and lovely surrounds we have nearby and are very grateful for the accommodation we were able to obtain.  It turns out that by not having hospital accommodation available to us at the start we are much better off being in a “non hospital” location.
