New Year :)

Hello lovely people:) Looking at my last blog it's hard to believe what has happened in the last 4 months. I don't ever do personal blogs, but I have made an exception... The beautiful bob shop is being cared for so amazingly by my completely incredible Mum Gail, my wonderful caring employee Lauren and my gorgeous friend Janet with loads of friends and super people pitching in where necessary to keep bob as lovely as ever and still open and smiley:) Just after my last blog I had a perfect Tasmanian get-away with my partner Brian and came back to my new office, 2 new labels ready to launch, and a new look shop in the making. I was so busy and excited about everything that was happening. Then on the 5th of September we were at the local supermarket, where I felt really strange an ambulance was called and at emergency it took them less than an hour to diagnose me with a brain tumor. I was taken by ambulance to St. Vincents Melbourne the next day and had surgery where they removed part of the tumor. Since then I have been through radiotherapy for 6 weeks and am now in rest and recovery mode until February. I keep thinking of the Lennon song - Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans, that's what it all feels like at the moment. I feel good in myself and so lucky that they found it and that I have had such amazing care from doctors, nurses right through the process and overwhelming family, friends and customer and supplier support for me, I feel so loved and cannot believe the caring messages and cards that have flooded into the hospital, home and the shop. I am so overwhelmingly grateful to everyone that has helped me or bought from bob or just thought enough of me to let my Mum know they are thinking of me at this time. The get well messages have come from such incredible places and people that I would never have imagined, THANK YOU EVERYONE. I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am and am hoping for a very positive result from treatment that will see me back at bob as soon as possible. With love and big hugs to all you lovely people and your family's at Christmas and to everyone a safe and healthy New Year :) For all the bob hours over the Chrissy season shop hours
