A sweet treat makes my day

Updated: Jun 13, 2023

During the weeks and months we were looking after my dad the days were often really difficult. Cancer feels like a taboo subject at times, people don't talk about what actually happens day-to-day, so we had no idea what to expect. I have often heard people speak about someone with Cancer who "passed away peacefully with their family at their side." You don't hear what happens in the lead up to that, how difficult it is for that person to come to terms with what is happening. How painful it is for the family to watch someone they love suffer and deteriorate, the feeling of helplessness. Cancer is horrendous, unbearable and painful.

We were lucky that Dad was able to stay at home which meant we could spend as much time as possible with him. But it wasn't easy, we were all devastated by what was happening, we were tired emotionally and physically and some days it felt like there was nothing to enjoy or look forward to.

One of the things all three of us enjoyed during that time was an indulgent treat, we would drive to the local farm shop on the way to the chemist for medication and pick up a nice cake. It might sound strange but grabbing five minutes in the afternoon with a cup of tea and a cake or chocolate was sometimes a highlight of the day. That is why we have chosen to include so many sweet treats in our boxes. We have carefully selected biscuits and cakes that are not only really tasty but also big! nobody wants a small cake! In future we will also be introducing savour treats too.
