Happy Valentines day

Hi Everyone 🙂
Happy Valentines day to you all! I am having quite a dull one to be honest! I got a very sweet valentines card from my 6 year old niece and one from my sister 🙂
I went home for a week recently which was really great – technically it was Reading week and I did do work but I had quality family time too. I have been having a really full-on week at uni – lectures from 9 – 4 all day every day and my brain feels like it is going to explode! I just keep focusing on the fact that it is the weekend soon! But I will end up starting my next essay on the weekend – work, work & more work!
I recently heard from a person who reads this blog and I was really pleased that my experience has helped others and I have learnt a lot too from hearing of other’s illness experiences. So please do get in contact and send me an email I would love to hear from you! My email address is – babycakes1806@hotmail.co.uk
I can’t believe I will be 21 in June! Not long – I feel I should do something big for it but knowing me it won’t happen! Time has flown by when you stop and think about what has happened. This October it will have been 2 years since I had Neville(Stoma) – feels a lot longer as I have done so much since having him in my life 🙂
I have recently ordered a t-shirt that has ‘this is where my ostomy is’ written on it and you get to draw the position of where your stoma is on the top 🙂 It is to raise public awareness and to educate and reduce stigma attached to people with Colostomies or Ileostomies! It was created by an amazing advocate for stomas – her name is Jessica Grossman. She lives in America – I’ll attach the link to her video about the tops – well worth a look! Copy & Paste this into computer – I am rubbish at linking & technology! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqsguzwEh2E
Hope you are all well 🙂 The picture I have attached is of me canoeing recently in the fields by our house – very flooded but great fun! xxxx
