Life after cancer, now where do I start?

Before, I was a full time mummy to my kids: 19, 17, 6, and 4 years old and pregnant with my 5th when I noticed a lump in my left breast. I thought it was a blocked milk duct, but it wasn't.

So in 2014, I thought my life was coming to an end. I had a mastectomy and chemo. Everything changed so fast and I hated it. I was sore every day and moody too. I hated my crappy life. 

I needed something so I got an allotment - it was a right mess!

But I've had it for a year nearly and it's my life now. I'm so in love with my plot I miss it when I'm not there.

I swear it's doing something good to me. People have noticed I've changed and I'm liking the new me now :)   ...I'm happy ?
