I started this breast cancer blog at the time of my diagnosis in March 2012, to record the interesting or funny things that happened during my treatment, and to try to make sense of all the things I was learning so much about. Most of these posts appear in the category ‘Breast Cancer.’
My treatment is over. Now I only have to take one pill a day. I feel very lucky and grateful that I appear to have got through the bulk of this for now.
The blog earned recognition from Healthline in the US as one of the top 23 Breast Blogs of 2012 and 2013.
The blog started me off on wanting to write more and more. I used the blog to serialise chapters of a novel: The World According to Shardonnay. I have also done around ten articles about the Adventures of the Gin Club, which I have now put in a category called ‘Gin Club‘.
From March 2014 I have been blogging about the process of planning a show to take to the Edinburgh Fringe in August. I thought this would be interesting for other people who might be tempted to try it. You learn an awful lot about putting on a show through just doing it, so I am posting about all the little things we have to do for the show to happen. These posts are in the category ‘Tingeys go to the Fringe.’
Here is a pic of me at Shambala Festival in the summer, with my daughter Chloe:
And here is a pic of Fred and me, on our way to a posh Christmas dinner at Hassobury Manor. (We don’t dress up often.)
