Alice-May Purkiss  Writer of things. Reader of things. Avid eater of things. Serial wanderer. Had a run in with breast cancer

Just had an appointment with my surgeon to get stitches out from surgery. Said to him "it's probably about time I had my annual mammogram?" He said "oh. Yes. You can just go now". So here I am. At least I didn't have time to get my knickers in a knot.
One of those moments where I still can't believe that this is my life - that cancer happened, that I made it through that treatment and I'm making it through the aftermath one day at a time. I still feel like I'm learning how to survive after having cancer, that every day has different challenges and reminders, but I try to stay thankful and I'm trying to do the best I can. I can't believe it's almost 2 years since they told me "the lump we biopsied is cancerous".
Also is it weird that me and the lovely radiologist had a bit of a lol about the fact that she only had one boob to scan because a) less discomfort for me and b) quick job for her?

I like a place where the menu is presented on a blackboard that's taller than I am...

Lava. Volcanoes. Wasteland

This will do

What a beautiful way to remember our girls. I couldn't be more proud to be a Boobette, spreading the boob love for @coppafeelpeople and spreading the message these loves were also so dedicated to
