Amonea Leisure Wear

Amoena have released a range of leisure wear. Fresh into the boutique and it is a big hit. Tops with prosthesis pockets (no need to wear a bra) and matching pants to go with them. Apart from exercise, these are ideal to wear on long plane trips. They are slowly being added to our website under Mastectomy Bra. Have a look.. you'll love them!

Some sad days in April

During April Mark & I lost our little dog Dorothy to liver cancer. Over a period of 5 weeks, she just went off her food a little bit, Mark noticed it and took her to the vet. An ultrasound and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. She did enjoy a couple of good weeks after diagnosis, but went down hill very fast about 2 weeks ago. We had to make that hard decision to have her put to sleep. Lots of tears from us both and we do miss her so much. But Dorothy will live on in our newsletter and on our blog sire. We had her nearly 12 years, she brought so much joy into our lives and in fact saved mark's life when the house nearly burnt down.

A well needed break!

After an amazing month at the Boutique with our March newsletter and its promotion, Mark and I are enjoying a well earned break. He has had a few good jobs of late and so surprised me with an Easter treat at Anantara Spar resort in Phuket. This place is amazing. The best massages I have ever had. The Thai girls are so gentle and have a heat compress system to relax your muscles before the massage. Apart from that we have been floating around the pool and sleeping. Mark found a deal where the breakfast was included.. so we have a big breakfast and save some money by skipping lunch. (He needs to skip lunch for about 10 years I think!) In my absence Christina has been running the boutique with help from Glena from Amoena. My heartfelt thanks to both of them. Tomorrow, Friday we start our trip back home with a flight to Singapore and then the midnight special back to Brisbane. If you need time out to relax and heal, then this is the spot. While not the cheapest place to stay... it is certainly a "spiritual recharge" as Mark calls it. My thanks to our travel agent Kim Ross from Ross & Turner Travel Associates and also to all the wonderful staff here at Anantara Phuket. See you all next week. Debra
