Celebration Time!

Hello friends
Well we certainly had a busy day yesterday and did some celebrating.
A quick photo heavy blog post today.
 Checking in for the last time...
The package is from Anne Riley Davies - 
(thank you for Elliott's last day gifts and knitted squares - photos to follow).
Once we said an emotional goodbye to the radiotherapy nurses we stopped
at the M25 services for McDonalds - one of Elliott's addictions!
Elliott has asked me to point out that he does actually own other clothes,
this particular PacMan hoodie seems to appear in nearly every photo!
We then ventured to Bluewater where he chose iced chocolate in a very nice
chocolate cafe called Cocobar.  I indulged a little too... 
 When Mitchell finished work he joined us (note the phone in his hand...teenagers!!)
The pug t-shirt is a bit of a family joke, he wanted a pug dog but we got Bella instead!
We then went to see The Hobbit 2, wow - a long film!  
Very enjoyable and total escapism.  
We still have a couple of special meals planned so the celebrating will continue.

It is going to feel a little strange not to be travelling to and fro the hospital each day
but I am looking forward to getting to grips with all my plans.
My new diary has already been put to good use!
Thank you for all the wonderful comments yesterday both on my 
blog and Facebook.
If I owe you an email I will be replying today as I am clearing my inbox and in-tray!
Take care friends.

Morning Christine, so glad that Elliott's completed his radio therapy and that you don't have to do the daily travel, I'm sure you'll quickly get used to having the extra time....time to craft perhaps? Lynn xx

Congrats that the radiotherapy is over Elliott. The Cocobar sounds wonderful, yet another reason to go shopping at Bluewater.

take care, xx

Morning Christine
What a great set of photos! Congratulations to Elliot, he's done so well these last six weeks. So pleased you all enjoyed the celebrations.
I walked past the Cocobar on Monday when I was in Bluewater and thought how lovely it looked. Will be giving it a try next time I'm there!
Enjoy your catch-up time now Christine.

Hi Christine, wow what a celebration and a good time was had by all and no mistake. So pleased for you.
Yes I agree the Hobbit is a long film. I saw it in Holland when we visited our daughter after Christmas. I wasn't expecting a cliff-hanger end was you?
Take care

Congratulations to you all on getting through the last few trying weeks. You deserve as many celebrations as you like! Lovely photos Christine recording a great day out. Looks like Mitchell and I have the same red smart phone, but I bet his has more 'bells and whistles' than mine :-)
Good luck with your plans.
