How does one go about telling the world who they are? Well, I am not sure but naturally, I’ll give it a go.
I am known as the following names
Mandy (not a great preference of mine though)
I live in a gorgeous little town in the Adelaide Hills with my
Fiancee husband Sam. He was my rock through out this and has been for the almost ten years we have been together. I am from a large family, have an amazing network of friends (old and new) and love to have a wee drink of bubbles/gluten free beer from time to time. I was very clever almost 22 24 years ago by giving birth to an amazing daughter who is not only funny and interesting but is her own person. I love that she comes out with so many dreams and ideas and does love to throw the odd curve ball but I’m always there to catch it. And talk…. oh man she can talk hehe.
Many people describe me as strong and determined and yes, I get on a mission once in a while. When I find a project that really interests me or I feel drawn to, off I go getting things done. The other side of me is so very lovingly lazy. I adore a long lie in bed, lazy days in the sunshine, drinking bubbles, watching the world go by. I think Lazy Bailey overrides Mission Bailey most of the time but Mission Bailey is coming out full force, superhero cape and all. I might forgo the lycra jumpsuit for the time being.
This is probably a page I’ll add to over time but my two missions are these:
Beat this bitch called Cancer TICK – Mission Complete. Went into Remission and currently in the progress of having a reconstructive breast built 🙂
Marry my man by the magic tree in Kuitpo Forest TICK – Mission Complete – oh, except for the tree in Kuitpo, we married in our very own back garden 🙂
I started this blog to help me get through the Unscheduled Journey being Breast Cancer. I will be honest and say that yes, it helped me a lot and I thank each and every one of you for being right there the whole time. I have met so many wonderful people through this blog and many I can now call my friends.
I am one of the lucky ones to have gone into remission with cancer. There are too many that haven’t been so lucky. If you see a tin, a flyer or have that phone call requesting donations for cancer research, please consider a coin or two. It doesn’t have to be breast cancer, it can be any cancer, they all suck and together I hope we can eliminate them from our lives.
