This week’s task was to consider something that had been a challenge. It didn’t necessarily mean an actual physical challenge, more the idea of something that was difficult to deal with. I sat for about half an hour, over a cup of tea, and made a list of things that I’ve found difficult over the years. Within 10 minutes, my list had 5 things written down and all had scribbled notes and bullet points. I’d never thought about putting these experiences into a scrapbook, but now that I have, I can’t think why I didn’t think of it before. They all help to make me who and what I am, warts and all.
Top of the list, and the one I went with, was my brush with breast cancer. Look away now if you’re likely to be offended by the sight of my cleavage …
The RHS gives a brief description of what a fibroadenoma is and how it’s treated. I just transcribed the details from the hospital’s information leaflet.
I’ve had that Junkitz patterned paper for a number of years. You know, holding on to it for just the right moment and now that right moment is here. (I was pleased to find that this website still has in in stock.)
