Pleased to meet you

The Drop Off started off as a rant blog for me, a 40 something nurse, frustrated by lack of fulfilling career options available in school hours and life governed by The school ‘drop off’

Then on November 24th 2016 everything changed. As a mother to two school-age children, the diagnosis of my best friend/husband with a life ending cancer was both petrifying and harrowing.

From the numbness, grew a panic as the world began to shake – what to save first in the earthquake? Between cycles of anger, acceptance and exhaustion I write authentically about the grief, laughter and gifts (you have to look pretty hard) that accompany the diagnosis of Pleural Mesothelioma in a 42-year-old husband.

Written with irreverent honesty, I find solace in the tapping of the keyboard, hope to offer a source of comfort and information to others and document the journey of a family flung into a new and unwanted life, wherever it takes us.
