Well that’s Christmas for another year!

Ian has taken the boys out for a bit so I thought I’d quickly jump on and post!

We had a lovely restful Christmas at my Dad’s. The meal was gorgeous, the kids really enjoyed their day and got spoiled rotten. I’ve been very tired from my chemo but apart from that am doing fine, so all things considered, it was a great Christmas!

I am SO bloated from the chemo- it’s horrendous. Even my face is all puffy. I kept having dreams the other night that everyone was calling me “Pig Woman” behind my back- this may have some basis in truth… 😛

I am very excited to have my last round of chemo on 13th January. I so want to put it behind me. The water weight should come off pretty quickly from what they are telling me, maybe six weeks or so, and I’m going to start a new regime after that. We’ll see!

I have a month of radiotherapy still to do as well, but hopefully by Easter will be able to put this madness behind me.

I really feel like the coming year is full of hope for a better future. I have big plans to score some of my items off my “to do before I die” list- we’re already planning a family trip to Rathlin Island on the north coast for early summer. I plan to live it large in 2009.

Pig Woman can feck off- she isn’t me. 😀

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Here’s to wonderful things for all of us in 2009!

    Suzy it’s really good to hear that the chemo is now coming to an end. I hope in every way that 2009 will be a very happy and healthy year for you and wish yourself Ian and the boys all the very best that it can bring.
    As for the comments – well I couldn’t possibly think of anyone ever referring to you in that way. It’s just not you and never was so please put any such thoughts out of your head.
    The very best of luck with all the big plans – I know you will see them through – no better woman!!
    with much love – XXX and (((hugs)))

    Thanks Bernadette- looking forward to seeing you over the next few days!

    ‘Pig Woman’, you make me laugh! and I haven’t been laughing too much over the last 4 days in England with my in-laws. A refreshing return to Northern Ireland….

    Sorry for laughing, it really doesn’t sound like fun! Welcome back to NI! 😀

    Pig Woman, meet Pig Man! I ate far too much this whole month and, without being able to move much at all I have been unable to exercise at all. Will have to make a New Years resolution for losing weight…

    It’s so easy to put weight on, there is no justice!
