I was in the local newspaper last Monday! How amazingly weird and exciting is that? I can’t quite believe it. They did a 2-page spread showing 4 of my hats. Because of this article I got in touch with people I knew years ago!!! My old tutor, my old class mates. I knew my blog would allow me to meet new people but I never knew my blog would put me back in touch with people. What an unexpected surprise!!! Oh and on a completely different note you can probably see my hair is starting to come back. It is still a little sparse but it’s coming!!!

This is the fabulous illustration done by my friend Mindy. I absolutely adore her illustrations and if you get a chance check out her website; and if you really love it, like I know you will, you can even check out her blog; Good times.

Well fellow blogger Hayley of that is. We were just talking about each others blogs when I made the comment that knowing me if I had all that make-up I wouldn’t wear it I would just put it on my head! It was just a joke obviously but it sounded quite fun at the same time. So when you wake up to a package containing 3 eye shadows, 1 mascara, 2 eye liners, 1 nail varnish, 1 lip gloss and 1 lipstick you can’t help but have a good day! I must give a word of warning though, please be careful when getting close to other bloggers… you could end up having more fun!!!

After making all my Christmas cards last year I was left with a few left over sticky tabs, about 500 to be exact!!! I really did not have a clue what I would do with them but I loved the colours. So being bored one day and tidying up my mess I found them and thought, I know what to do…

On finishing a huge chapter in my life I now have a new journey to take… I think? Radiotherapy is now the big question. I must admit I do not know how to answer. Chemo was something I had to do, there was no question about it but Radiotherapy to me seems to be a risk either way. There is no win win answer in this situation. If I have the Radiotherapy there is a small chance I may get a secondary Cancer at a later stage and if I do not have the Radiotherapy there is a small chance that I may relapse. But to me consultants seem to appear divided on this issue. I am unclear in which direction I will follow but I am starting to realise that cancer, whether I go into remission or not, will always unfortunately be a part of my life. 

I would like to say thank you to the people of SHEDS UNLIMITED for helping me with my strange request. They cut to size the wooden pieces that made my hat and gave me the pieces for free.
