My life on a plate! A place where I get to waffle on about anything and everything, and hopefully raise some awareness about Cystic Fibrosis and organ donation on the way.

Yay for birthdays!! I had the BEST time on saturday!
Unfortunately I spent most of the day in bed, due to my lungs deciding that their birthday present was to take the day off and not do any work. I literally couldnt breathe, it was one of those days when simply sitting still feels like you are running a marathon, and so back to bed I went.
However I think they did me a favour, as that ensured that I rested nicely all day and didnt get too overexcited prematurely, and so when it came to the evening, I had lots of energy.
The hall looked amazing, decked with masses of pink streamers and balloons, with fairy lights adorning the walls. There was a live band, and a disco, food and drink, and....a chocolate fountain baby! The photo is of me pulling my "yes I know what I am doing, I am big and 22 years old" face when in fact I was rather scared that I would drop my pink marshmallow and clog up the mechanisms and blow up the whole thing.
This week has been pretty quiet so far, as I had a lot of recovering to do. I have my annual assessment on friday, which involves a full day of tests at the hospital. Deep unadulterated joy...!
29 years old, small blonde and smiley. I love life, but was facing a death sentence due to end stage cystic fibrosis. Thanks to the generosity of a stranger I received a life-saving double lung transplant in January 2007, and am now a very proud mummy.
I am very much a people person and a rather girly girl, loving all things pink! I enjoy talking, laughing, utilising my love of talking in the form of public speaking and awareness raising, and inventing new words and then being unable to separate them from real ones in my head.
