Who should I bump into in the newsagent?

I decided to pop into my local newsagent after returning from radiotherapy and guess who I met there?

No, not the prime minister or a famous actress or pop star.  It was my lovely hairdresser who I've not been to for about 9 months.  For obvious reasons...

She asked me how I was and complimented me on my new hairstyle and colour.  I told her about my cancer and she suggested that pop over for a free trim.  She only trimmed the slightly shaggy bits around my ears, but it was great being at the hairdressers again.  Unimaginable 6 months ago.

She told me about all the people she knew who had cancer and it just put the whole thing in perspective.

I felt so normal.

Hurrah for hairdressers!
