Weekly Round Up


Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

Elizabeth has been dealing with logistical complexities related to her healthcare and her domestic life. It has caused her to reflect on how “Being sick is exhausting. Getting better from being sick is also exhausting.”

Jan shares some rehab ruminations in her latest blog post.

How do you say goodbye to someone who is dying? Eileen answers the question in a beautiful way on her blog.

Terri shares her experience of what happens through DIEP flap connections.

A thoughtful post by  Catherine F on looking forward.

Britt and family visit Taiwan.

Catherine celebrates her 35th birthday.

Grace’s latest post on breaking the beauty myth on breast cancer puts forward the claim that we cannot talk about the breast cancer awareness movement unless we talk about women’s continued gendered place in society.

Finally this week, a beautiful reminder from Jacquie to be kind to ourselves for how can “we be truly mindful, non-judgementally accept how we feel without showing some kindness towards ourselves?

Until next week,

Be kind to yourself and each other

Yours with love
