25 Days for Daloni – September 1st

My friends Sister Daloni has been going through treatment for Cancer of the womb over the last few months, and she is now just about to start a round of radiotherapy.

The treatment seems to be working, here is a post she put on Facebook a while ago;

The treatment is working and at my last CT scan the docs could not see any tumour mass and the tumour marker in my blood is now down to normal. Which is obviously fantastic news.

However anyone who has been through Chemotherapy will know how horrible it is, and though she is glad it is over & has worked, she is not looking forward to the next bit.

Julia had this great idea:

I came up with the idea of collecting from all of you any cheerful, inspiring, funny or apposite poems, stories, reminiscences, photos, cartoons, drawings, short videos etc etc so that I can organise to email her one every day. That way she’ll have something to look forward to each day, if we can together muster 25 of them.

I thought I might be able to generate a few more on here?

My family are a huge source of ‘jokes’ so I’ll start my 25 days of cheerfulness with some ‘funnies’ from my Auntie Eileen via my Dad

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that’s falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?
