A Lush day :)
I just remembered that I forgot to tell you about my day at Lush in Poole. It was so amazing that it is now up there in my top 3 ever things that I've done. They were really, really nice to me and Milly and I just loved the whole day so much that I was quite sad when it was over.
I'm trying to remember the names of everyone so here goes - Karen, Jack, Dan and Olga met me and spent the day going around with us ... is that right? I wish I could remember all the names of the people that let me destroy the jobs they were meant to be doing, like the comforter bubble bars! Mine were so bad that I don't think they'll ever see a Lush shop lol. Filling the snowfairy bottles wasn't any better and it was so quick, I can't believe that they have to move the bottle so fast. The funniest test was when I was trying to tie the bows on the gift boxes and they were just moving down the belt thing so fast that I kept bumping into the end. But they were all really nice to me and I didn't meet a single miserable person in there, so mum and me have decided that Lush is a happy smiley place to work and it smells good too.
If any of you follow my Facebook page (alice pyne) you'll have seen the photos of my very own bottles of Snowfairy which they made me special 'made by Alice Pyne' stickers to go on. All Lush things have a sticker on them so that you know who made it or who packed it and I was so pleased to get my own batch. I don't know where my bottles have gone, but if you all have a look in your nearest Lush shop, you might find one. You must let me know cos it will be fun to see where they ended up. I got a big box of goodies and I got to go to the Lush spa which was so relaxing, so thank you LUSH, you made me so happy and I am enjoying my daily baths.
Before I tell you something about my treatment, I have something really exciting to tell you. There's going to be a second 'Alice' mug from Emma Bridgewater, but this time for my own charity here in Cumbria. I was so pleased when I heard this and I've got my designs drawn and can't wait to show you all what my second mug will look like. There'll be mountains and lakes and hopefully Mabel too!
The other news is that I had another scan at Alder Hey last week and it looks like it's spreading a bit quicker than I hoped. There isn't many things that they can do now but my consultant did say that I could try some radiation to see if it will help for a bit. So we met my new consultant at Clatterbridge who is called Freda and she's really nice. This week we've been away doing the planning and I had my mask made which is like having a plaster of paris put over your head and shoulders to make a mould. I've had some more scans done and there's just a little bit left to do before I start having my treatment. Unfortunately, I'm going to be there on my 16th birthday so I don't think that will be a fun day but I suppose that if I want to do the treatment I need to do it properly. Mum is on the computer now looking for somewhere to live or we might drive, I don't know yet but Dad said we'll book a hotel for my birthday night so that it's special.
When we got home last night, the Ulverston Curry Club had dropped off a special certificate for me and my family saying we were their Citizens of the Year. I thought that the curry club was like a Chinese restaurant or something but mum and dad explained that they support lots of good causes in the area and do not spend all their time eating curry! So thank you x
Next Friday, I'm doing something with friends for my 16th birthday and on the next day we're having our family christmas day. If you follow me on twitter I keep talking about my #Christmasinnovember and although I should be here for the one in December as well, I'm not risking it and making sure that I get my pressies lol. I'm joking, we're going to give just a couple of presents and then maybe wander into town as it's the Dickensian weekend in Ulverston and it's very Christmassy.
