When I was going for my radiotherapy at Jimmy's in Leeds my Dad picked up a leaflet for the 3 Volcano Trek in Italy, to raise funds for Yorkshire Cancer Centre, based at Jimmy's.
"You should do this" he said.
My initial reaction was to laugh,
then I thought, yeah, why not? what's stopping me?
I've been looked after by the most wonderful nurses... with halo's and wings, and amazing Doctors with fabulous skills and knowledge to guide me through my cancer journey and now the big treatments finished, what next?
I want to give something back and carry on fighting and help others who's outcomes aren't as positive as mine.
My eyebrows are falling out at an alarming rate which I'm not happy about.
I got really cross with them on Saturday and said
"Look fella's, you've had 5 months to fall out, 5 blooooming month whilst having treatment, but you hung on in there, for grim life, and I'm proud of you for that, I truly am, and very grateful for your co-operation after my prayers to the big eyebrow upstairs,
now all the treatment has finished you've gone all relaxed and floppy and just plain lazy, with "I can't be bothered to stay and work hard at being good brows" kind of attitude and it just won't do.
Now I'm not asking much, I'm not expecting you to become the Gallagher of eyebrows over night, but come on fella's, you lasted so long don't give up on me now!!?"
like many unruley eyebrows mine have selective hearing and would rather leave the nest and explore the world, and it's so hard for me to say good bye and let go,
and my eyelashes have decided to do the same, bugger!
like I said before, looks are not everything and as you know I'm Angelina Jolie within so untill the little baby ones that are now starting to grow get bigger I'm going to go for the above look Sonny suggested to me, play dough, a million and one uses,
