Birthday Celebration with my Family


So after my desperation to get out of hospital yesterday for my family birthday celebrations today, things didn’t quite go to plan..

The trouble with having a low immune system (especially right before surgery) is I can’t see anyone at risk of causing an infection so…thanks to a cold, a sickness bug, exposure to scarlet fever and chicken pox everyone had to cancel except my parents.

I was devistated! However very glad that I was able to see my mum and dad before I go back to hospital tomorrow!

Despite not being able to see everyone I was absolutely blessed to receive the most beautiful birthday present imaginable…made by my talented mum’s fair hands…a cushion hand stitched with fabric from clothes belonging to my deceased grandparents, my husband Ewan, my parents, my two sisters, my three nephews and my niece…meaning now my entire family can all be with me over the next few weeks 💖💖💖

This cushion is now, without doubt, my most prized possession and I’m so blessed and thankful for their sneakiness in getting this sorted without me finding out!

I love the addition of clothing picked by my niece and nephews, including my niece’s ‘little mermaid’ Tshirt!…my favourite Disney princess as a child!

There is also fabric from my husband’s kilt and my beloved grandparent’s clothes. It’s just beautiful and words can’t describe how happy it makes me.

Tomorrow morning I’m making the long journey back to hospital and I’m so glad I’ll be taking this with me 💖

Love and light, Fi xx
