Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

A Very Special Christmas

on December 25, 2013

No chemo this week again because of low blood test results meant that Pippa could enjoy Christmas Day and eat anything she liked!  Chocolate Mousse for dessert is exactly what she ordered!

Pippa has decided that she would like to write this blog after having a  lovely Christmas day with friends and family……….

This fine Christmas day we were up very early looking for our presents from Santa. We ended up finding them outside. Mine was under my tree.  I got a dream catcher and also a very adorable bunny rabbit.  We found out the rabbit was a boy and called him Nibbles.  Patrick got a surfboard which he was very exited about.  He had his first trial this afternoon when we went to the beach.  And James got a Garmin running watch which he loved too.

We had 13 people coming for lunch they were Kylie, Jp, Ana, Armelle, Brian, Jo, Pep, Simon, Steph, Lachie, Georgia, Anne (Nan) and Tony.  For lunch we had salad, ham, potatoes, seafood and lamb cutlets.  

While we were having lunch mum made an anoucement to think about all the children who have to spend Christmas in the hospital because I was feeling very sad for them and hoping that they would still have a fun Christmas.  Anne (Nan) made some delicious fruit punch.

 After lunch Patrick ran the “Kris Kringle” it was only for the adults. You had to role a dice then what ever number it landed on either from 2-12 there was something you had to do.  When the kids got their presents I got a book and bop it XT.  

It was very hot outside so we decided to play inside. First we played connect 4.  Once Lachie, Steph, Georgia, Simon and Pep had gone Armelle and I played a game.  Then Ana came in and wanted to play with us.  Later Patrick came in and he decided he would play too.  A little later James came in then it was getting too squashed in my room so we went to the playroom. Patrick and James went because they had to do something.  So Ana, Armelle and I did some magic tricks. Then Ana and Armelle had to go home.  

I had a great Christmas day with all my family and friends.

    Hi Patrick, James, Pip, Virginia & Nibbles,

    That WAS a lovely christmas for you all. I absolutely loved the table setting too – was that in Warnambool? We stayed in Port Douglas, had a nice christmas and now to box up and put everything thats “new” somewhere?? running out of room. Evie got lots of nice things to decorate her room with because she likes to be a Home Decorator, Asher got a Motorbike………. yes motorbike!! Crazies present I’ve ever bought one of my children but of course he was shocked and then thrilled.

    Sorry we are not coming to Lorne this year, we are all disappointed but there’s just too much going on here and I cant see myself clear to get away.

    Love to you all, remember my house is yours when the cold freezing months of Victorian Winter set in.

    Love Meredith & Fam.
