My Incredibly Brave Mumma is Cancer-Free

My Mumma has battled breast cancer for the past year and a half. And she kicked its ass. And if you knew her you would know that her attitude was EVERYTHING. No whinging, no moaning, no why me, she just got on with it and showed us strength and awesomeness. We all know the chemo and radiation therapy was most definitely a really tough haul but she would never admit it.

The first partial mastectomy she took extremely well, she was pissed at having to do another surgery, a full mastectomy, shortly after that and it was really tough on her but she got on with it and never wavered. I know there must have been times when she felt overwhelmed with worry, pain and angst but she refused to show us. 

My Mumma has worked as a nurse for decades. She worked on a cancer ward for young children who mostly had neuroblastomas, and as tough as she is she had to move to an adult cardiology ward as seeing children die is beyond painful. As she got older she worked part-time as she felt the patients needed her as much as she needed them. Her philosophy was that it's hard to feel sorry for yourself when every day you deal with people in critical condition. They loved her and she made a real difference to their lives. She has been to weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries and funerals of patients. And when you hear her talk about her patients it is clear it brings her joy - this was a calling, not just a job. 

She went to visit patients at the hospital when she was having good days in her recovery which made her feel better and worthwhile. She had a few friends crochet hats for her bald head but she wore her bald head as a badge of honour.

Yesterday, she got the all clear and we are all delighted and very, very relieved. She is grateful to have a kick-ass story to share with the patients when she visits them and will continue to show compassion, share a few laughs and encourage them to be strong and battle on.

I love you my amazingly awesome Mumma x

Much kudos to him for cancelling the concert until the organisers brought down the prices. I'm amazed that he's coming to Kuwait, my kid loves him. She has been trying to book a ticket all afternoon. Fingers crossed for a pink one.

Quote of the Week

Basil Walnut Pesto

"Quick and easy pesto to top your pasta. A great change from red sauce."


  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a food processor, blend together basil leaves, nuts, garlic, and cheese. Pour in oil slowly while still mixing. Stir in salt and pepper. 

Keep in a jar with a layer of olive oil on top to keep it nice and green.

LWDLIK - Okay, thank you All Recipes for the recipe. It did not come together in 15 mins. Cleaning the basil leaves alone took 10 mins, mine were very sandy and a lot of bits to be removed. Heated the walnuts in the oven a while to release the flavour that took 10 mins. I used frozen garlic blitzed in the micro as I was getting fed up and could be bothered to peel and toast in oven. Then the blending took forever, it seems like the blade wasn't chopping it so I had to stir it and blend many, many times. I reckon it took me 35+ mins total but it was definitely worth it. Husband called asking for a sandwich shortly after finishing it and I immediately made the husband a grilled chicken (leftovers), tomato slices, pesto sandwich on wholewheat toast and he loved it. My daughter had a bite and she too wanted the same too. And she usually hates everything I make her these days. 

A big hit 9/10. Lost a point for the finicky prepping. I now know why it's expensive to buy. Next time I will make it when the maid is not at church.

By Iman Martin The 20th Century saw a huge change of lifestyle everywhere but particularly in Kuwait, from a poor desert community at the start of the 20th Century emerging in to a rich oil economy. Join us as we show photos of Kuwait's progression throughout the 20th Century.



By Maziad AlKhaldi Modern day Kuwaitis are the descendants of several nomadic tribes and clans who ultimately settled on the coast of the Arabian Gulf during the eighteenth century to avoid the persistent drought of the desert. When they arrived at the coast, the clans built forts to protect themselves from other nomadic tribes who still traversed the desert. Until now, ethnic Kuwaitis are still struggling to maintain their cultural heritage in an increasingly complex society. Do you know how many types of tents exist? What is the different between tents of today and those of the past? In his 25-minute presentation, Maziad will answer all these questions and share a Bedouin recipe on the screen. Advance reservations required at



By AlBara AlWuhaib February is the month when Kuwaitis celebrate their national holidays. The past year had been remarkable. It included some of the major protests in the history of the Country, unprecedented incident where a Kuwaiti lady was jailed for expressing her opinion, & lots more. The root of it all goes back many years ago. This Diwaniya will shed lights on the History of Democracy in Kuwait, & how the country reached its current status. AlBara AlWuhaib is an activist, who served several organizations. He volunteered in the Kuwaiti Red Crescent during the Iraq war in 2003. He's also a member in the Kuwaiti Human Rights Foundation, the Kuwait Transparency Society, a founder of a Book Reading Club (as part of AlJalees project), & the Assistant Manager for the Kuwait Memorial Museum.
