This is bizarre......

Here's another link (that hopefully will work!) to the front page article on our local newspaper. It was so weird walking into the newsagent and seeing a whole rack of Meggie's face! Meg, on the otherhand, is so...."uh...ok...that's me in the Mum.....have you booked my riding lesson???"

My beautiful Belle, (Ellie!) is feeling very much in the background, and finding things really tough at the moment. She has dealt with, and continues to deal with what is happening to our family, all very graciously most of the time, but I feel that she's reaching her absolute limit of tolerance...... This gorgeous girl is SO special and has had to deal with things that very few big sisters have had to deal with, and she's done it SO well. Belle is amazing, and has had to grow up and deal with "stuff" way too early. Thank you my darling girl - WE LOVE YOU SOOOOO MUCH.....XXXXXXX


Just seem to be getting these link all wrong...try this one for Meg's interview. If it doesn't work, go to and click on Audio.

Please comment to let me know if you heard it!

The Interview in full!

What a wild weekend we've had!!! Ellie and Meg had an AWESOME time at the P!NK concert, and the ride in the limo (with champers!) was really special! It was lovely to have Lisa and Jay share this with us too - we had a giggle on the way to the Burswood! P!NK actually said "hi" to Meg half way through the concert, and said she can't wait to hear Meggie on her new drums! All this was in front of 19,000 people!! Plus, we've had an email from her drummer, Mark, today. What a very inspiring, energetic and positive man he is! Here's the link to Meggie's full interview for those who'd like to listen.... http://

Phil and I had a wonderful time at the Strike a Chord "Sparkle" Ball. It was super emotional and apart from about half an hour in the middle of the proceedings when we were asked to stand up and declare ourselves as Meggie's parents, at which point Phil and I "disintegrated" and blubbed for about 20 minutes, we had a fantastic time!

I can't thank Strike a Chord, 92.9 radio, Automasters and of course Mum and Dad (who got the tickets for the ball for us)'s been a wonderful and very special experience. (God! I sound like I'm at the Oscars!!)

Radio Star!!!

Well, many of you will probably already know that we're having an amazing weekend at the moment! Meggie was interviewed on 92.9 radio yesterday about her cancer journey, plus she met with Mark Schulman (P!NK's drummer) and received a FABULOUS set of electronic drums, PLUS two tickets to see P!NK tonight at the Burswood!! We're also being taken in a stretch limo!! - Ellie and Meg to the concert, and Phil and I to the Strike A Chord "Sparkle" Ball! What a fabulous treat! As the concert and the ball are happening on the same night (at the same complex), our lovely friend Lisa and her gorgeous daughter Jay are coming along for the limo ride and then Lisa's keeping an eye on my girls, then travelling back (in style again!) with them! We were overwhelmed with this fantastic experience and generosity! You can check out part of the interview here.....

Also, there are a couple of great pics on the Strike a Chord website

I'm off to get my wild locks of hair sorted out now, in readiness for the ball.......:)
