I’m a Positive Statistic – Testicular Cancer

It’s 8 years since I was diagnosed with Testicular cancer, survival rates are getting better and early diagnosis is the key. Check yourself!

5 Years in the Clear…

It’s taken a few days for me to get my head around this and post it, so I apologise for that! I had my annual Testicular Cancer checkup at the beginning of the week, after 5 years you think they’d get easier (they don’t and neither do me and needles!). Actually it was five-and-a-quarter years but I won’t go into that rant about appointments. I know, I know, it’s unusual for me not to go into a rant, but I have good reason…. I won’t be going back! After 5 years in the clear, I’ve officially been discharged from Oncology!

Tough Times and Friendship

I seem to be always apologising on this blog, generally for my lack of time to post – the last 5 years has been some of the most hectic in my life.

Life has been pretty tough again for the start of this year (I’m not ready to go into that one just yet) and I’ll be honest I haven’t felt the inclination to post much, I have the attention span of a goldfish and the temperament of an emotional rottweiler (not sure if I’m going to bite or hide in a corner!). I’ve taken sustained stress for the last couple of… Continue reading »

I’m Still Here!

Nearly a fortnight without blogging, does that mean absolutely nothing is happening in my life, or I’m too damned busy to blog – probably the latter! As I’ve just posted at Full Time Blogger, I’ve got my motivation back post-Christmas (for sites that interest me at least – the others can be left alone until the new year!). It’s been a busy old time the last couple of weeks, I got my 2 year all clear on Cancer (that was a comedy of errors I assure you!!), had a manic week at work, the business has been busy and to top it all someone slapped Christmas slap bang in the middle of it!! I will eventually finish reading Getting Things… Continue reading »
