And it goes on!

So I thought I'd seen the last of The Royal Marsden Hospital!  No!  Went for my final check and guess what a lump!  Obviously not cancer as nothing could survive what I went through but a bloody big lump anyway.  So I went back yesterday for a scan.  Lovely doctor hummed and then decided to remove it there and then!  

He gave me a local anaesthetic and then suck a HUGE syringe in to suck out loads of fluid that looked very like white wine.  As this was going on I suddenly thought; God my boob is going to shrink and I'm going to look seriously odd".   So I asked lovely doctor if this was really necessary and couldn't we just leave the white wine where it was.  Sadly it was as it can cause infection, so now I'm very wonky but healthy.

I've also been the butt of lots of wine jokes in the office today, such as don't let my boss know as he'll stop buying wine as start milking me!  Also that's where all the wine I dribble when drunk goes!!

No more visits to hospital for 6 months.

I've decided to stop this blog now as I'm well.  In a week I'll be closing it down.

So thanks for reading.

Ticking Over

I'm back at work and loving it.  Its coming up to the party season so I'm very busy.  

I have about an inch of rather strange hair.  It has blond tips followed by a dull wet pavement kind of colour.  I'm going to let it grow a little longer before I do anything too drastic.  Have decided that It must be done before the party season starts in earnest.  

My social life is going very well and I honestly feel my old self.  I'm still slightly bloated and can't wait for that to go but running up and down the club stairs will soon shift it.  Despite being bloated I've managed to have an extremely lovely and warm romantic interlude that left me feeling like a proper woman again.  I'm not going to go into details as I think that's slightly vulgar and besides its my business only.

One odd thing I've noticed.  Its nothing to do with cancer.  Is the very strange atmosphere in London at the moment.  This week alone I've been delayed on the tube 3 times by suicides on the tracks and I know there have been far more than usual.  I've also noticed that there is lots of arguing going on.  I had the first ever argument with one of my brothers this week about the most ridiculous thing (money).  I have to say its left me very shaken as I'm not a confrontational person.  Also naughty daughter and I have been bickering more than ever and she has been very volatile.  Is it due to the financial crisis or is there something in the air?  All rather worrying anyway.

On a happy note I had the most amazing conversation with my brother who lives in New Zealand.  he called yesterday morning.  I so love and miss him.  Can't wait to go and visit him in Jan.  He is the main reason I'm going to continue with this blog.  He and his wife read it and they love it as it helps them to feel close to me and the family.  

Love you John and Tonya.
