I am surrounded by some pretty insane people. They think that they're normal, but really they're not. However, I spent three hours over lunch with four of these pretty mad (but absolutely gorgeous) people earlier today and I can, hand on heart, say that they are pretty crazy.

LH and the children are equally mad, and I have also received messages of support from the downright strange J, who wants to sell her entire house and home on ebay. Weird Uncle Marc arrives tomorrow to manny and well, his name alone says it all. And I'm convinced that my family was in front of the queue with upturned umbrellas when God was handing out crazy behaviour.

But I wouldn't have it any other way. It's the day before my operation, and rather than worrying about it, I have spent most of the day just laughing my head off.

Thank you to all of you. And thank you too to all my normal friends who have sent me love - it really means so much to me.


  1. The thing is, you know what my message takeaway was from this entire post?

    "How do I bid on that house on ebay"?

    And then I remembered to send you all my love, prayers, support, and positive thoughts. You'll come out of this as you always have: stronger, healthier, wiser, and more beautiful than ever.

  2. I already know that I'm one of the insane ones, Chinot. But then again, it takes one to know one. This has been an amazing journey so far, but as Alan pointed out, everything will be much better in the end. We love you!

  3. I don't feel alluded to as far as insanity is concerned. The trouble is, how come all my children are crazy?
    We love you like mad, Chinot, and we'll be storming heaven for prayers, as usual, on excise day.

    You're the maddest of them all which is why they are drawn to you! =) But we love you and my prayers are with you always! All will be well and I'm pretty sure you won't end up with a pancake!

  5. How very dare you. You can't tar us all with L brush (although as you now know, she doesn't use one)! Bon chance today LL. You know what they say: if God gives you pancakes, smother them with chocolate peanut butter sauce and enjoy!

  6. Lyn, seriously - you? No chance. Alan, Lits, Dad, Mayet - I am surely the sanest member of our family. Simone - all insane people think they're normal. See above.

  7. Love to see all these comments!!!Chinot, you are definitely one of a kind!!! AS everyone here has already said - WE ALL LOVE YOU for who you are, no matter how INSANE everyone is to you...LOL!!! Y
