Well hello there! I’ve been quiet, I know. Belly Rumbles has resembled a ghost town over the past two weeks. Apologies for that guys, but there has been quite a bit going on.
A family vacation to the Northern Territory, Kakadu, Nitmiluk, Litchfield and Darwin, conquered and explored. Stay tuned, there will be lots of sharing in regard to our adventures.
I have been a busy bee along with Amanda of Chew Town working on The Sweet Swap. It will be officially launched this Wednesday, but please pop over to The Sweet Swap for a sneaky peek. Be the first to see what it is all about before we officially announce the Aussie Food Blogger event to the World.
Then there is my sweet Sally. Sal has been back at the veterinary clinic for more surgery to remove, not one, not two but four tumours. As Josh put it, she looks like she is cos playing as Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie. Three large nasty incisions, one on either side of her torso and the other down behind her front leg. Still waiting on results, and fingers are crossed they got them all.
If you have been reading Belly Rumbles for a while, you will know that over the past three years Sally has been under the knife a few times, in fact six, to remove cancerous tumours. Hopefully this is the last time.
Yes, that dirty evil disease, CANCER. Sally may have four legs and fur, but she is part of our family. Loved immensely, and there really isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for her. My family is no stranger to Cancer. A couple of years ago my beautiful mother-in-law lost her battle. I have lost my grandmother to bowel cancer and an aunt also lost her own battle with the big C. There have been friends, friends’ children, acquaintances, all having their lives cut short to this disease.
Due to being up in the Northern Territory, I had to RSVP ‘no’ to the Cancer Council of NSW’s 20th anniversary of The Big Morning Tea celebrations. It was a shame, as I have a great respect for the Cancer Council and what they are doing. I also can’t believe that The Big Morning Tea has been going for so long, 20 years! Read more →
