Proud and Progress!

Hello friends

What a hectic but brilliant weekend!  I truly hope you all had a good one too.

Firstly, we had a fantastic evening at the Youth Achievement Awards.
We got all dressed up ...

It's been a long time since I put on a dress, my legs are still in shock! 
And delighted and proud to announce that Elliott received an award - 
Phenomenal Potential, it means that even though he took a break from studying
for treatment he has now returned to college and his future looks bright.
It was so nice to spend time with many other families who have been through similar experiences,
it was all very positive and not a sad evening at all.
Huge thanks to The Royal Marsden and charities that put on such a fantastic event.

Then Sunday...the big move!
Just a few items to find homes for.
The shelving units going in. 
 The beginnings of my work desk.
My parents, sister, nephew and Elliott helped enormously,
it still isn't quite finished but will be soon and I look forward to sharing those 
photos with you.  Grateful for that extra hour!

Take care friends - back soon.

Hi Christine, Well done again to Elliott and I must say that you both looked stunning. Love the dress and great choice of suit Elliott. Look forward to seeing the final photos of the cabin, I wonder how many times you will arrange it until it is just right.

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Christine, Brilliant news, Elliott definitely deserves this award, and he looks so grown up and 'dapper', I am so happy for you both. Your dress looks stunning, Christine, you should get dressed up more often. Personally, I love dresses, I wear them during the day with tights or leggings (not dressing up dresses haha !!!), I prefer them to trousers.
Your cabin is coming along nicely, I enjoyed the extra hour in my day too haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine
Congratulations to Elliot on receiving his award. He certainly deserves it after not only he but the whole family have been through. You both look very dapper if you can say that about a lady. Love your dress. Looks like you have had a very productive weekend trying to put everything in your cabin. I expect when you finish you will have to re organise until you find the best place for everything.
