The 26th of April.
My pity party is over.
I woke up this morning still feeling pretty crappy, and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with myself. My shoulders still ache from yesterday’s injections and paracetamol hasn’t done much to help. When getting dressed, I was in two minds as to whether to put my gym clothes on or not because of the pain (I could only get my bra on by doing the “front and swizzle” technique), but I decided that going would make me feel better, so on with the leggings and hoodie it was.
Mommy was out most of the morning at Grandma’s to review her care plan, and returned just in time for lunch. We were supposed to be having a new chest of drawers delivered between two and four (replacing the plastic ones in my bedroom, aren’t I fancy?) so we ate fast to get me to the gym so Mommy could be home to wait for the chap.
I had a really productive session! I put on Lemonade for the first time (the gym is a good place for listening to whole albums) and it is magnificent. I love it so much. Daddy Lessons had me doing involuntary toe-tapping and Freedom is my jam, it made me feel all kick-ass and I am not going to let this lung business beat me. My lemonade will be excellent speeches I write for Anthony Nolan and I will do my best to ensure this is not the result for more families.
I’mma keep running ’cause a winner don’t quit on themselves.

Sunshine and raspberry sorbet hair. Why it isn’t lavender is a mystery, but James said he’ll fix it for free when it fades out because he is lovely. It still looks excellent so I’m not disappointed.
Not a great deal to report on this morning, as we were out of the door by half past eleven. On the way to Black Sheep, it started to rain, but thankfully we had the emergency brolly in the car. James painted my hair and was very perplexed by the pinkness, considering he mixed purple and blonde, but no matter. Michaela appeared, so we had a chat and I recommended my new moisturiser to her (Lush Dream Cream, great for eczema and my skin is super soft). She loves the pink but she loves everything we do with my hair.
Came home and had lunch, then the rest of the afternoon was pretty open, so I decided this was the perfect opportunity to get a new hamster. We’d bought new food and bedding just before Hamilton died, so it seemed only sensible to use it on a new hamster! We arrived at Pets at Home, and I stared at all the hamsters for ages until I settled on one. There was one who was showing off but he didn’t have a cute face so he was out. I liked a white one with a grey face (so we’ve named him Graham) and after some coaxing, he came out. New hamster pal!
