Sending you all a little sunshine from Florida ☀️

Sending you all a little sunshine from Florida ☀️

Hello lovely people, I just wanted to say a quick hello from sunny Florida & that I'm checking in when I can to see how you all are doing.

After my last minute scan and meeting with Onc before coming away, it's been a nice distraction from it all and although I've had a few on/off pains (& weirdly for me, an 8 day bleed...having thought my periods had all but dried up...assuming that's what it was!?!?) I'm pretty much not thinking about anything other than which rollarcoaster to ride next! It's a liberating place to be for sure!'s a pic of me enjoying one of my husband's American sized G&T's on our balcony yesterday afternoon after a day enjoying the Harry Potter worlds at Universal & Islands of Adventure...this stuff is wasted on kids 😂 (the rides, not the gin!) haha

Love & ((hugs)) to you all!

Jemima xx

  • Hi Jemima, Have a fab holiday, we are all so very jealous and my what an impressive G&T that one is, but they do everything big over there don't they. I just love the USA. Enjoy the lovely sunshine, and you're right, it is all wasted on kids 😂.

    Enjoy the rest of your vacation, charge those batteries, have lots of fun scary rollercoaster rides and have a safe flight home.

    Please check on the bleed when you get back.

    Take lots of care ❤️Xx🎄Jane

  • Thank you Jane - I won't lie, my husband does a mean G&T so just taking advantage of being in the US and blaming them for the size 😏 Loving some of the new rides that have opened since we were last here 🎢 And yes, I'll contact my CNS about the bleed when I get back although I'm pretty sure it's just one of those things. Hope you're well Hun xx

  • Dear Jemima, now that's a proper drink! Have a wonderful Florida trip. Sunshine and excitement and gallon sized g&t's. You deserve a break!🌞T. X

    Hugs Ellsey xx

  • Thanks Ellsey - raising my glass to you all and sending you all as much sunshine I can muster xx

  • Good for you Jemima!! You look truly relaxed-but who wouldn't be with that G & T!!! wishing you relaxation and sunshine and forgetting about cancer for a while. it sure was not invited on your trip!!!!


  • Thank you Carol, I'll certainly cheers to that! Hope you're keeping well? Xx

  • Brilliant picture. As a gin aficionado that is impressive. I am working my way through my Ginvent calendar as we speak so will raise a toast to you in a smaller volume.

    Have a great time.


  • Haha loving your style Fay! Enjoy! 🍸 Xx

  • Hi Jemima

    That is some G and T ! Wow. When I looked closely I could see it was like a two litre tankard . I will be having one shortly but it will have to be a small one as I don't want to breathe alcoholic fumes on my oncologist tomorrow ! You look fab and sounds like you are having a ball . I was in Orlando many years ago with my young sister and remember going on the scary rides . I'm sure they were tame compared to what they have now .

    Have an absolutely wonderful time . Take care


  • Thank you Molly - not quite 2ltrs (but damn...that's a good idea!) 😏 Hope your meeting with the Onc went well? Yes, there are a few new rides in Orlando...the good old faithful rollarcoasters are my fav...although all the virtual reality stuff is cool...I like old school thrills 🎢😁

    Take care Hun xx
