Good news!
I saw my oncologist yesterday & my scan showed no sign of the cancer - which means that it’s either a) completely gone or b) so small that it’s not being registered by the scan. So, they’re going to keep monitoring my cancer markers via blood tests to see if it shows up again, & I’ll have another test in three months to see what’s happening.
So, I’m cautiously optimistic! Woohoo!

They're also going to fine tune my medications, so hopefully I won't be as tired & worn out all the time (& will stop keep falling asleep every afternoon!) I'm also working hard with the speech therapist & so hopefully I won't always sound like Sid James either!
Fingers crossed for continued good results!



Thank you again for all of your good wishes & support!
*HUGS*

Sorry that I've been quiet lately.
I went into hospital last month for my radiotherapy & it's made me really tired.  I feel okay - just tired! *g*
I see my oncologist next week to find out if the treatment was successful, or if I need another dose, or if there are any secondary cancers. Fingers crossed for a clean bill of health!

I hope everyone's well & happy!
*hugs*

Yikes! Everyone seems to be going to DW!
I have an account there which I haven't updated in a couple of years, so I'm importing my LJ entries over there & I'm also trying to post this entry there & crosspost it to LJ. (Hope it works).
I'm staying with LJ (& hoping to do the x-posting thingy), but if you're migrating to DW & would like to stay in touch, please add me to your circle. I'm [personal profile] bluespirit.
I also have a mirror of my fic & art LJ - starshinedreams - at DW: [community profile] starshinedreams.
Let's keep in touch!

I'm home

Just a quick update: I'm home at last!
I'm afraid that there were complications with my surgery, &, as a result, I was rather poorly, & I had to go back to theatre for an emergency, second surgery last Friday evening.
Fortunately, things are much improved & I was discharged on Monday evening. I'm very tired & can't do much, but I'm just so, so relieved to be at home with my two boys again! ♥

I'm going into hospital on Saturday for my op.

I'm a little nervous, but I'm mainly just glad that the waiting is over!  :)

I've had the most fabulous, magical weekend!
On Saturday we went to see Fantastic Beasts - which was awesome! - & then on Sunday, we went to the HP Studio Tour for Hogwarts in the Snow!!
It was amazing - a day of fun, laughter, Nifflers, me definitely not buying any more cuddly creatures (peer pressure!), snowy gorgeousness, & getting to spend time with the best friends in the world! ♥

I don't have a pic of us all wearing our robes yet, but here are a couple of me proving that I definitely did not buy any kind of cuddly to go with my Fang & Hedwig! Nope, absolutely not!
Oh, how did Buckbeak get there? *g*

Finding a fantastic beast... )

I've made myself a bag that I can wear with my robes when we go to the Harry Potter studios on Sunday.
I used some leftover robe fabric - black for the outer & Hufflepuff yellow for the lining - & sewed a Hogwarts' emblem patch onto the front flap.  I then added my Order of the Phoenix braid & my little Hedwig to finish it off! *g*

Excuse the pic quality - I took it with my phone.

Hogwarts here I come! \o/

A while back, I made [livejournal.com profile] lantean_drift a set of Hogwarts' robes as a Christmas present.
Well, during this year, I've also been making robes for other friends as their birthdays have come around, & on Sunday we're all going to the Harry Potter Studio Tour again - but this time, wearing our robes! \o/

There are 8 sets of robes & we have all 4 houses represented:
Hufflepuff: Me
Gryffindor: [livejournal.com profile] lantean_drift, [livejournal.com profile] xanthe, KB, S
Slytherin: [livejournal.com profile] flyingnorth, [livejournal.com profile] battyoldflapper
Ravenclaw: [livejournal.com profile] carnelianred

They're fully-lined & I've made wand pockets inside so that we'll all have a place to keep our wands as we're walking around. *g*

It's going to be 'Hogwarts in the Snow' when we go - I can't wait! \o/

Mmmm, coming home after walking with Bud on a wet, wintery day to a lovely cup of tea & a warm croissant. ♥
Happy, happy, happy!

We had a glorious day at Ynyslas beach last Saturday.
An autumn walk by the sea with my two boys is my absolute heaven. ♥
I'm so very, very lucky.

You all make me so happy!
Thank you.

I've been diagnosed with thyroid cancer & it's also spread to the lymph nodes in the right side of my neck.
Although uncommon, it is treatable & hopefully survivable.

Obviously, it's cancer & a nasty op, but I just feel so incredibly lucky that it's not something worse & that there is treatment.

I'm at my sewing machine in the office, looking out onto our garden.  Bud is lying nearby, snoozing loudly.
My heart is bursting with happiness! ♥

Last weekend, it was the annual Dogs' Party for the Lab rescue who brought us our beautiful Bud.  It's such a lovely, happy-making event with so many beautiful dogs who now have their forever homes.
Here's the boy taking part in the fancy dress. The theme was 'the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations' & so Bud went as 'Union Bud'!  He won 5th prize & had a lot of fun! \o/

This is Sid. ♥

He's our gardener's little dog, & he comes to our house once a week to help his dad out. *g* (Sid basically spends the afternoon chilling in the garden, chasing frogs around the pond & being adorable.)
Bud & Sid get on okay - they're not huge friends but they have a sniff & say hello & then both get on with their own very important business!
bluespirit: (Sewing - pink)
I'd seen some really cute fabric a while back that I loved but couldn't think of a project to use it for.
Fast forward a couple of months & I was looking at the fabric again in the online shop (okay, I'd been stalking it!) & I saw that they'd only got a few metres left! Noooo!  I knew that I had to buy it right then!  I have a monthly sewing mag called 'Sew' & it always comes with a free pattern & that month it was a really nice little summer dress.  So, I got the fabric & made myself a dress!

(Excuse the creases - I'd worn it before I remembered to take a pic!)

Definitely happy-making!

Even when he plods muddy paws through the house, my baby Bud still makes me happy! ♥

I had the best time at my annual writing weekend!
It was lovely to catch up with friends (some of whom I only see once a year) & to chat & laugh.  There was a *lot* of laughing!
