Hi, my name is Laura. I like to think I am a pretty normal 23 year old. Shopping, laughing and beautifying are a big part of my life. On 23rd November 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and my whole life changed. I vowed to make my battle with the big C as short and fun as possible. I blog about my journey to remind you lot to check your boobies, raise awareness and tell my story.
I am happy to say that radiotherapy is still going OK. I
have slightly pink and sore skin now but so far I am not too tired at all. I
have been religiously applying aqueous cream twice a day in an attempt to
protect my skin as much as possible.
The time I have had away from the hospital
I have spent writing away working on the book. The online shopping bug has
bitten me again (obviously this is not my fault). I bought a couple of new
dresses, one of which I will wear when I pop up to London for the night on
Tuesday (read all about why in next weeks post).
The most exciting news that I have for you all is that I HAD
MY FIRST HAIRCUT since my hair has grown back. The lovely Sarah from HAC
snipped away at my fluffy, wispy ends and transformed them into a styled crop.
The last time I had been to the hairdressers was when this happened. This time
instead of leaving with tears in my eyes I left with a big smile and some
advice on how to control my often crazy locks. They really are crazy locks too,
my hair has grown back thicker than ever it is also fluffy, unruly and never
does what I want it to. The ends have a slight curl to them, which is strange
for me as I had fairly straight hair before but the colour is the same. I can’t
wait for it to grow a bit longer so that I can do more things with it.
My weapon of choice to tame my locks.
I have recently purchased some new lovely things for my
bedroom (all from Primark).
New star print bed linen
New LOVE light
The weather warnings have me slightly worried about my
journey to the hospital tomorrow morning. I am not sure what happens if the
roads are blocked by fallen trees or if the conditions are too bad to drive. I
guess I will just have to wait and see what happens and cross that bridge when
I come to it. However I am hoping the people over at Weather HQ have made a
mistake and the storm won’t be as bad as they think.
