Three down - One to go!!

Had my third chemotherapy session this week and so far the side effects have been minimal, thankfully!

The hair has almost gone; whats left is very wispy! Hubby says I remind him of a baby orangutan!!

Even though the weather has been nice and sunny over the past couple of weeks up here, it has still been very windy and therefore cold around the ears so I have invested in some funky bandanas and they are great! Much easier than tying scarves and less likely to slip off!

I've also been wearing the lovely woolly hat that was made for my by the lovely Sue from http://www.folksy.com/shops/susiej It definetly keeps my ears warm!!

I had some nice sales last weekend from the Macmillan auctions
that I am running on Ebay so I have decided to continue them over this weekend aswell. Will probably keep them on a rolling auction
for a few weeks as I will keep making a few bits and pieces to add. The auction can be found here http://shop.ebay.co.uk/butekaz/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p4340

I have also added a couple of new pieces in the Folksy store for Macmillan. http://www.folksy.com/items/453174-RETRO-EARRINGS?shop=yes
The total raised so far for my local Macmillan fundraising group here on the island is just over £75. My aim is to reach £100 before I start my radiotherapy which will be around the beginning of June. Please help me if you can , either by buying for the Ebay auction or the Folksy store or passing on the links to others!
Many thanks to all those that have donated items to the cause and those that have bought items!


  1. I'm glad to hear the fundraising is going well. x

  2. That's a loy of money - well done! I have to say that that hat looks fabulous!
