It's been a while ....

... but the good news is I've passed my Degree and I've now got a 2:1 BA (Hons) Business Administration ...yay! I must admit to be very pleased, I never thought I'd get such a good result after all that's happened since I've been studying, losing both parents, battling cancer (twice) and working full time isn't easy at the best of times, least of all when you're studying for a degree. Still, I've done it and I've proved to myself that I'm made of solid stuff.

Chemo has begun again. The first one didn't go well and I had a really bad reaction to it which meant they had to stop immediately and put me on oxygen. It was very weird, I couldn't breathe, I had a horrible pain in my back and felt very hot within seconds of it getting into my blood stream. The oncology staff were amazing and had everything under control very quickly and reassured me that everything was going to be OK and that I was safe. The second chemo was much better they changed the drug to Docetaxol which I seem to have accepted so far but I've completely lost my sense of taste and everything feels like cottonwool in my mouth, it really is a horrid side effect.

I've done a little bit of artwork and very much enjoyed it. Still working through Ady's classes and loving them.

I've just uploaded Willowing's (Tam's) big giveaway details. She's starting a new class in January 2012 and I'm looking forward to joining in with that.

I've also started a Creative Writing course with my friend Wendy. So far so good but early days yet. I think I should really take a blog writing course but hey, can't do it all.
