I have a guest poster for today's FFS Friday. CTT, some of you may know of him already (apologies) but if you don't he introduces himself further down.
This was his last FFS attempt.
The idea for this post came about when we were in Bali a couple of weeks ago. The conversation went a little like this ...
CTT: So have you started writing the book yet?
Me: What book?
CTT: The FFS book.
Me: How can I write a book about FFS Fridays? They're one off sentences and random observations from my week.
CTT: I could do it.
Me: Well you can guest post for me next week then, it has been awhile.
He failed to send it through to me last week and I was genuinely disappointed. I was in Sydney on my own and needed a good laugh. Yes, I will admit it he occasionally is quite funny. Luckily he came through with the goods and I got an email this week from him.
But it didn't make me laugh, instead it just made me cry. Mofo.
We love this family to the moon and back, they are our peeps.
It’s CTT here. Regular readers of Move Fuel Love and it’s predecessor, Dear Baby G will already know me. CTT stands for Cyril The Tosser. Sarah named me, I don’t know why. She’s just mean sometimes. Some of the new readers won’t know me, but Sarah wrote a very nice piece about my wife a couple of weeks ago, and about what she’s about to go through.
In her blog, she wrote, “she would do anything for anyone, and I love her to pieces”.
This pretty much sums up everything about my wife Nicole in one sentence. She is always putting other people’s needs in front of her own, which sometimes drives me crazy. But I absolutely love her to bits. We’ve been married for more than 15 years, and I couldn’t imagine what my life would be like without her.
Now she has cancer and is about to start her treatment of chemo and radiation.
The outpouring of support that we have had from everybody we know has been great. So many people have offered to help out with taking her places and doing things for her, that I know she’s going to get through this. Before she starts chemo, she wanted to go on a quick holiday because I was on holidays for that week anyway, so we decided to pop up to Bali for a week of relaxation.
For Sarah and Brad to organise to have time off and come up and see us at the drop of a hat, was the best thing that could have happened for Nicole.
Since they moved to Darwin, she has missed Sarah like crazy and missed Maggie too. I’ve missed Brad, but apparently my feelings don’t get a look in here anyway.
From the bottom of my heart I want to thank them for coming up to Bali, and spending the week with us doing mostly nothing, but eating, drinking and catching up, plus getting a couple of tattoos.
The FFS Friday is all about the Bali trip because there were still plenty of FFS moments.
Take care, peeps.
