Hello everyone,

Well, chemo number 5 was yesterday so I’m on the home stretch now! Only 1 more to go on the 28th June and it’s over! Woohoo!

I’m feeling very tired and drained and unfortunately that won’t get much better until about Saturday/Sunday. I’m getting used to it now in a way and even resting like I’m supposed to! Except now…. on the laptop, working! Heehee!

I hear more about my radiotherapy on Monday 14th June. All I know at the moment is that it will be starting on the 19th July and will be every day for three and a half weeks in Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge. Hopefully it will mean lots of shopping trips and nice lunches out in Cambridge! Haha!

For those who have sent their addresses to me, thanks! Please could those who haven’t, do so! I have some nice invites to our party on the 17th July ready to go in the post to you all!

Big hugs!
