Hi everyone, how are you? Doing well?
Well I am good. More than good. Better than a bee in a honey pot!
I have actually done some cross stitch...and very nice and relaxing it was too. I can't show you yet because it is part of my WIPopocolypse challenge and I want to make sure I have a lot more to show than I did last post (nil).
I have spent all day in Galway at the hospital waiting to find out if my thryoid growth was cancerous but sadly they didnt have the results. The histology dept. have a backlog because it is holiday season. I don't mind though. My surgeon, the amazing Prof. Kerin was good enough to come and apologise which a lot wouldn't have done. He is an amazing man and I am glad he is on my side. Thyroid cancer isn't a bad one so a few weeks more waiting won't make too much of a difference in the outcome stakes.
To make up for it I got to go to the sea. I was born and bred in Norfolk quite near the coast and I NEED SEA...not want: need! So I got to walk on the sand and breath in the sea air and imagine see breeze cleansing and healing me. I also had my very first ever Subway sandwich. And guess what? Putting all the things you really like into one sandwich just does not work! It is the last time I'll have a roast beef, gherkin, tomato, black olive and cucumber sandwich with sweet chilli sauce, that's for sure!
Oh and I dyed my hair red. Copper Red. Well, I figure I have been bald (with no say on the matter), had a skin head (again, with no say on the matter) but I draw the line at my lovely blond hair coming back....mousy brown!!! So I rebelled and went bright, bright, copper red haha. I feel so naughty!
I won't get to do much stitching tomorrow because I have to go pull ragwort out of a field. I have a new friend coming to stay in a few weeks....I wonder if you can guess what kind of friend it might be?
Now lovely pepes, I have a bit of a dilemma. Remnents of chemo brain and being very, very tired just get in the way of me thinking an original thought. Come September I will have been blogging for four years. Yes, four whole years. And so I want to offer a blogoversary giveaway but I want one which is original and which involves the number four (so maybe four winners???)
I wonder if you could suggest a blogo-birthday giveaway idea? If I choose your idea, you will become the first winner. So thinking caps on: what would you do for such a special blog-event???
