Welcome! Come in, put your feet up and get comfy. So after years (pretty much my whole life) of running a constant internal narrative in my head, I decided it was time I let some of those thoughts and feelings free and out into the real world. And if I’m the only one who ends up reading this, that’s okay too.
The last two years have been the most dramatic and tumultuous of my life. Before September 2015, I had what you could call a pretty much charmed life. Great family, great friends and hardly a hint of discontent or disharmony. And then I was diagnosed with cancer and everything changed.
I don’t want this to be just a ‘cancer’ blog. Obviously that is the biggest thing going on in my life at the moment and it does tend to colour everything else but there’s a lot more to me than just cancer. I’m a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and most importantly a mom to the two most incredible little boys in the world. I’m living with cancer but it doesn’t define me. So while I will be talking about it, especially at the start, it won’t be the only topic on the table.
I can’t promise that I’ll always be upbeat or cheerful here but I can promise that that I’ll always be honest. Too-much-information honest. So what you’re going to get from me is 100% unfiltered unrestricted access to what’s going on in my life and my head – aren’t you lucky?
