Two Roads Diverged..... 
‘Two roads diverged in a wood, and I….I took the one less travelled by….’ Anyone remember the poet? It was one of my favourite poems in High School. I could make this a guessing competition as Jane so cleverly won the 'Guess Mr Bush's first name' competition but i am sure you would cheat by using the internet.Well, this road less travelled by is a bit lonely sometimes and I would prefer to be on the busy street with all of you but hopefully one day I will agree with the sentiments expressed in the last line of the poem….’I took the one less travelled by and that has made all the difference.’ The thing about being on this road is that there is no-one ahead of me to follow. Apart from a few obscure maps I find along the way, which all seem to contradict each other anyway, there is no clear route to follow. There is no-one on this road to guide me. I have to use my own judgement and choose the direction I take. It is all very vague and no-one can guarantee the destination. On the positive side, my road has many supporters cheering me on….and little Labrador puppies bounding along either side of me, chasing chocolate Lindt bunnies who are trying to escape (see later reference to visualisation).

Speaking of roads, the one to Maidstone is pretty familiar now. I have had 7 radio sessions and despite the boring 2-3 hour round trip every day, it is all really a walk in the park compared to the chemo. I am using Yuri’s powers of visualisation when being zapped and use my time under the machine to transport myself to a secluded sunny beach in a land where there is no disease or illness (but an abundance of organic dark chocolate and Lindt bunnies). Unfortunately I continue to wake up in Maidstone hospital with people drawing on my chest in marker pens and muttering statistics whilst aligning the green lasers with my lovely tattoos!

What an interesting series of entries on my last post – I have learnt what a Liverpool Kiss is, what Mr Bush’s first name is, that Jane’s 36 double Gs double up as a cushion and what movies and books I should be reading. Thanks guys! Never a dull moment. Looks like it is going to be a great blogger’s party some time in the New Year.Last chance to sponsor me for the 20 mile walk which is next weekend. We have a practice walk tomorrow from Battle to Rye which is about 15 miles. http://www.justgiving.com/deborahwinchester

This next bit is mostly for my family in Oz who I can’t ring at the moment because I am spending my life in cars or hospitals……
Things are all go in the Winchester house at the moment. We are re-decorating some rooms and doing bits to the garden. The children are all well. Tess is spending every available minute in her room standing on her head. She has decided she wants to win Britain’s Got Talent next year and is teaching herself to breakdance. After finding some ‘Teach Yourself Breakdancing’ videos on YouTube she has taken the step by step instructions very seriously. The first video was in Chinese so she was contorted in very odd positions until we found one in English. Jacob is now so obsessed with cars that he will even stop strangers in the street and ask them what type of car they drive – a little embarrassing at times. Ali has only 7 more weeks at primary school so is working hard on the ‘please buy me a mobile phone’ front. She set up a car wash here the other day with her friend Grace so they could raise enough money to rent a horse! Thanks to the generous Pembury boys they raised nearly 20 pounds and a bar of chocolate! See you soon, love from Deb x
PS Where is Lisa REALLY going? And who is Bob Cratchett?

PPPS Off to see Sex in the City tonight and I will be wearing my groovy red shoes and pretending to be Carrie....pass me a Cosmopolitan please?
