Restless Feet

I haven't been blogging regularly for a while and I have been thinking about this issue. I am extremely busy these days now that my energy is back and I don't have much time to sit down as I am constantly on the go and loving every minute of it, after all, I have alot of making up to do.

However... I am begining to feel like moving on from Cancer Aint Gonna Beat Me because I feel as though cancer is in my past. I had it, I kicked its butt and now its almost time to move on. Blogging on Cancer Aint Gonna Beat Me has been a blast but while I continue with this blog I feel as though I am being caged by cancer.

Don't worry, I am not leaving the blogging sphere! I still take part in the Friday My Town Shoot Outs and I am in the process of starting a new blog but I am having a few technical problems, trying to put badges on etc, I have forgotten how to do it. Once these hitches are sorted I will be moving over to that blog but don't worry, I will "tip you the wink" before I do.

Phew! So what has been going down in my busy life? I have been enjoying my pony Cola more than anything. He is my therapist and my personal trainer! I have lost half a stone in the last couple of weeks just by cycling to see to him, mucking out and lots of riding or walking. It is down to him that I have my strength and mobility back in my shoulder. He is the best thing that could ever have happened to me.

I had my teeth sorted out a week or so ago so now I have the smile I always dreamed of, three years of brace work and pain was certainly worth it in the end even though I had to delay the restorative work for a year.

The herceptin is going well, I have had 10 treatments so far so only have 8 more to go! My fingers are still swollen and my nails are flaking and splitting but that is such a small detail!

I am back to my support group Talk 4 Talk for parents of children with speech, language and communication problems and I am back in control. I have already found out about a service that my son can get access to in order to help with his reading. He is 9 next month and he still has the reading age of a reception pupil. I have told the school about the service he needs access too but as usual they are dragging their heels. Therefore I am putting my request in writing and copying it to the Local Education Authority and seeing as how it is election time, I may copy my letter to some MP's - yes! I am back in the driving seat!

I am looking forward to the Race for Life next month although my training has been hampered. I am still running and I can manage a mile but I have the rest of my life to get back to where I used to be and as long as I enjoy running then I will keep doing it.

So life is good, getting better and better with each day!


  1. Isn't that funny ...just the other day I thought ... Sara needs to change the name of her blog ..create a new identity so she is not her disease...and you are!

    Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooo you!!!!

    Don't forget to give out the url of the new one.

    SO much love from your kinda Aussie Welsh Fairy Sister ... Sarah

  2. I had changed the name of my blog by erasing it and then typing the new name but goole still sometimes calls it Land of Cancer instead of Escape from Cancerland.
    Love your new smile!
    Good luck getting the help your sons need. They are lucky to have you making sure they get it.

  3. Sounding great Sara, it is time to move forward. Cancer is a part of your history, but it is just that history.....looking forward to your new blog and I am so happy you are feeling well and doing even better...:-) Hugs

  4. Sarah, you look vibrant, beautiful, alive! I'm so happy to see your look.

  5. I'm glad you are moving on ... you look great girl!


I value each and every comment left, they keep me going and give me strength!
