27.6.17

I’ve ditched the wig! After a very lovely & hot holiday in Corfu, where I only wore it when I went out in the evenings, & after last week’s scorcher, when I couldn’t bear wearing it at all, I decided to ditch it for good. Probably. 😬 Everyone who’s seen me without it says I look fine & that it suits me but I can’t convince myself. I think I look too butch & GI Jane like, which just isn’t me. See for yourselves in the picture below.

I’m finished with the main treatment now, so just need to have my 3 weekly herceptin injections until October, to reduce the chance of the cancer coming back.  I also have 3 monthly echocardiograms, as herceptin can cause heart damage, regular check ups with the oncologist & blood tests to check all is well there. Then I’ll be done. Hopefully🤞

I’ve been doing a 6 week Back to Fitness course provided by Macmillan & Albion in the Community (even my beloved footy team are helping me out!). It was circuit training but on an easier scale. I also did Pilates again for the first time yesterday, which was great. It’s nice to get back to a bit of reality. Talking of which, next week I go back to work! 😳 I’m being eased in gently though, so it shouldn’t be too bad. Can’t keep being a lady of leisure & enjoying all these coffee mornings & liquid lunches!

I’m holding an afternoon tea in August & I do apologise if you haven’t been invited. As I don’t live in Buckingham Palace, despite having a royal surname, I’ve had to restrict numbers but if you’d like to make a contribution to a fantastic charity who’ve been of enormous help to us during the past few months, then please donate at http://www.justgiving.com/lisaking86.  Thank you in advance

Not sure I’ll update this for a while unless there’s any new news, so thanks to all for continuing to read & comment & for all your wonderful support. xxxxxxxxx

  1. Oh Lisa, you look amazing, so pretty darling! It must be a strange feeling, like being undressed in some way because you’re used to having longer hair – however, it is the fashion for young women to have a shaved head at the mo, so as always you are right up there with the latest trends! You go girl! xxxx
