Cancer will never take our love for a good party!

We have been a tad busy over the past week both with work and home.

We always said throughout my treatment for breast cancer that when it was finished we would celebrate and what better way than a party?

On Saturday we held a party to say thank you to our friends and family for all of their support.

The past 7 months have been tough for us all and without them all we would not have coped.

We wanted to give something back to the chemotherapy ward at cannock where I received my treatment so held a raffle and asked for donations.

This was a great success.

We also had children from the school choir attending and they sang a song called ‘stronger together’ whose lyrics are a perfect description of how we coped.

Needless to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

People dug deep into their pockets and we raised £768!

The biggest surprise wasn’t that though!

Mat announced he had written a poem. To which I was speechless (and those who know me know that is a rarity).

So here it is in all its glory.

For obvious reasons, one word has been changed. But I’m sure you will get the gist of it!

It’s called ‘Flip it, life’s too short’.

If you have an amazing wife,
That’s in your life,
Give her a hug and a kiss every night,
And hold her tight,
Because flip it, life’s too short.

If you have a good man,
Treat him the best that you can,
If we want’s to go out with his mates for a beer,
Send him off with a cheer,
Because flip it, life’s too short.

If your kids are like mine and sometimes drive you up the wall,
Don’t just stand there and shout and ball,
Think to yourself, what was I like at that age,
Chances are you were sticking smarties up your nose and running around in a rage,
Because flip it, life’s too short.

If you have a bucket list,
Grab it with both fists,
If you want to jump out of a plane,
Do it now as you may never have the chance again,
Because flip it, life’s too short.

If you’re holding a grudge,
Let this night give you a gentle nudge,
Bury the hatchet and get in touch,
And tell them you love them so much,
Because flip it, life’s too short.

If you’ve got some spare cash to go away,
Do it, blow it, be on your way,
It’s about making memories that will last forever,
Or simply enjoying life, getting smashed and falling asleep in the shower,
Because flip it, life’s too short.

So tomorrow I want you to do two things you know,
Check your b***s and your b***s and anything else that dangles low,
Do an act of random kindness or something you wouldn’t normally do,
Because trust me, it’s great, because I do it too,
Because flip it, life’s too short.
