Well its official. Am sat in the car off up to Darlington for a getaway. A friend of ours lives up there and insisted that we spend the weekend with him. There has been lots of offers of visits and stays from people which is really touching.

The next few weeks are going to fly by with visitors. ,ext week we have friends from Norfolk and then the weekend after its the visit of my sister.

My treatment starts on the 22nd of this month. My final fitting and dry run for the Radiotherapy is on the 20thn so again another busy week at the Christies.

Also on the 20th I go for the first of my wig fittings. Now if you have seen any of my recent pictures you will know my hair is the longest its been in years. This will change when treatment starts though and I have said that I will cut my own hair off rather than see it fall out. It was a good friend of mine (and my drag sister) that said when someone he knew had cancer and was having Chemo they had to cut their own hair off as part of their own mindset. This made sense to me and will be following the same process.

Back to a shaved head for me then, just a little shorter....

The wig isn't for the hair issues! Its more to do with my scar which I can feel is still very prominent, and whilst being at the hospital have also seen a few other scars.

The wig simply gives me the option to go out and be unnoticed . Unlike the day after I came out of hospital and someone noticed the staples in the back of my head and said to their partner that it was minging. I chose not to say anything because I didn't want the hassle but Mark said that if he had heard it he would have had something to say. I just don't need the stress and frankly I can't be bothered dealing with other peoples issues. The wig sorts that problem out.

Anyway I'm about to fall off the end of the earth (as far as mobiles and texting etc go) so better sign off and send this. Will have to see if I can fine a Ye Olde Internet Shop to update from over the weekend. Or I could just write them on my Blackberry and send them when am back in the wifi world....

Will see what happens. Stay positive guys and remember to spread a little infection. Smiling is infectious, and is one bug we could all do with having in our system.
