How to live like you're dying: a work in progress

'People don't expect you to feel in any way lucky when you have a terminal cancer diagnosis, but I am. I'm so lucky. I absolutely treasure every tiny moment. What a blessing to see the world like that.'

Since he took his last breath.

And bursting with love and kindness.
And then all of a sudden.

A letter to 10 year old me

I know, I know. You made your mum rush out first thing this morning to buy you the latest Jacqueline Wilson book, didn't you? Its crisp, inviting, DELICIOUS-NEW-BOOK-SMELL pages are waiting for you on your bedside cabinet, and you've been anticipating kicking off your pink, flashing trainers, shutting yourself away, and curling up with it all day long. But it's me. YOU! You, from the future! How cool is that?! Let me steal you for just a couple of minutes. There are a few things I'd like you to know.
