After the worst year of my life, I'm happy to finally share some good news... My latest scan has come back completely clear. No evidence of disease. Cancer has left the building. I'm officially in remission from Hodgkin's Lymphoma! ๐ŸŽ—  #cancerjourney #bloodcancer #cancerchicks #lifeaftercancer #hodgkinslymphoma
Serious question. At what point will I stop buying stupid shit to distract myself from my upcoming PET scan results...? Say hello to my ridiculous pink telephone bag ๐Ÿ‘‹ (at least it matches my new wig ๐Ÿคฆ‍โ™€๏ธ)
So the Harry Potter Afternoon Tea at the Chocolate Deli in Worcester was amazing ๐Ÿง™‍โ™‚๏ธโšก Today is the last day they're doing the Harry Potter themed tea (they're switching to a Halloween themed tea from Tuesday) but the food was so good. Would happily go again ๐Ÿ‘Œ  #harrypotter #afternoontea #worcester #chocolatedeli #blogandbeyond #brumbloggers #bloggerstribe #foodbloggers #instafood #foody #harrypotterfans #potterheads
Hello, I'm Sam, and I am obsessed with cat cafes ๐Ÿ˜ฝ  The @catcafeliverpool is the second #catcafe I've visited and it was purrrfect. The cats are so cute and you can see they're well looked after.  It costs £12 per person for an hour and that includes unlimited hot and cold drinks (you can pay extra if you want to stay longer). We also bought a cake each which was delicious ๐Ÿ™Š  Full post coming soon on my blog ๐Ÿงก  #catcafeliverpool #liverpool #catsofinstagram #catlovers #ukbloggers #blogandbeyond #bloggerstribe #reallifeandstyle #shinyhappybloggers #thesehappysquares
โญ Post-chemo hair growth update! โญ  Can't believe it's been 6 weeks since my last chemo session! My hair has finally started to grow back, although it's mostly just fuzz at the mo. Can't stop stroking my little furry head ๐Ÿ˜‚  If you zoom in you can see my eyelashes are also making good progress ๐Ÿ‘Œ Eyebrows are pretty much there now (I've coloured them in a little here so you'll just have to trust me on that one ๐Ÿ˜‰). Weird to think that when I was diagnosed the thing I was dreading the most was losing my hair. Then I started treatment and realised there are worse side-effects to deal with!  #hodgkinslymphoma #chemotherapy #chemo #hairgrowth #fuckcancer #cancerjourney #hairgrowthafterchemo #cancerchicks #bloodcancer #chemohair #chemohairgrowth
Little throwback to when I went to #friendsfest in Bristol last month. Can you believe today marks 25 years since the first episode aired!? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I don't remember it seen as how I was 3 at the time ๐Ÿ˜‚ but I do remember the later series, and I cried watching the last episode ๐Ÿ’” Who was your favourite Friends character? I can never decide between Phoebe or Chandler (although Rachel had the best clothes). #friends #friends25 #blogandbeyond #chattycaptioncommunity #reallifeandstyle #thesehappysquares #shinyhappybloggers #ukbloggers #bloggerstribe #smallblogger #blogginggals
I was really excited to read this book. And not just because the front cover is so pretty! When I used to catch the train to work I would read “Rush Hour Crush” in the Metro newspaper every morning, so the concept really intrigued me. . "Nadia gets the 7.30 train every morning without fail. Well, except if she oversleeps or wakes up at her friend Emma’s after too much wine. Daniel really does get the 7.30 train every morning, which is easy because he hasn’t been able to sleep properly since his dad died. One morning, Nadia’s eye catches sight of a post in the daily paper: To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress. I’m the guy who’s always standing near the doors… Drink sometime? So begins a not-quite-romance of near-misses, true love, and the power of the written word." . I always find the best rom-coms are those where you find yourself genuinely rooting for the main characters. Nadia and Daniel and both very likeable, and after every near-miss I screamed in frustration!  Overall this is a sweet romance novel. If you haven’t been on your summer holiday yet, then this is perfect for reading on the beach or by the pool. Rating: โญโญโญโญ . Many thanks to @avon_books for sending me a copy of this book in return for an honest review.  #bookrecommendations #bookreview #bookbloggers #bookstagram #bookblog #booklove #booksofinstagram #bookblogging #booksbooksbooks #blogandbeyond #bloggerstribe #shinyhappybloggers #prettybooks
Had such a good day at West Midlands Safari Park with my mum and mini Griffs ๐Ÿง๐Ÿฆ I've been really struggling with fatigue this week, so when my mum said she'd pick us up at 8.30am I wasn't sure if I'd be able to drag myself out of bed in time.  Luckily I did, and it was so worth it โค ๐Ÿ‘‰ Swipe to see a very scary video of the moment 3 lions in a row walked out in front of our car while on safari ๐Ÿ˜ฎ  #westmidlandssafaripark #wmsp #safaripark #animallovers #blogandbeyond #ukbloggers #discoverunder1k #theuncoolclub #penguins #lions #lemurs #elephants #thecaptionclub #bloggerstribe
The face you pull when you find the perfect Disney jumper in @Primark ๐Ÿ˜‚ spotted this on @luisachristie the other day and managed to hunt it down in the Birmingham store ๐Ÿ™Œ cannot wait to wear this to Disneyland Paris in November ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ’• . #primarkuk #primarkdisney #disneyfind #disneyfan #disneymagic #reallifeandstyle #blogandbeyond #ukbloggers #brumbloggers #shinyhappybloggers #disneybloggers #ilovedisney #thebloggercrowd #bloggerstribe #discoverunder1k #theuncoolclub #thegirlganguk #theeverygirl #findingthejoyineveryday #babessupportbabes #instastyle #fbloggersuk
New post on www.griffblog.co.uk (link in bio) all about our visit to #friendsfest ๐Ÿ›‹  This is one of my favourite photos from the day. Obviously had to hold the "PIVIOT!" sign seen as how I was wearing the matching t-shirt ๐Ÿ˜‚ (it's from @newlook btw)  What's your favourite Friends quote?  #friendsfest2019 #ontheblog #ukbloggers #fbloggersuk #brumbloggers #bloggerstribe #blogandbeyond #friendstvshow #bloggersofig #lifestyleblogger #newblogpost #discoverunder1k #lbloggers #bloggerstyle #chattycaptioncommunity
๐ŸŽถ Smelly cat, smell-y cat, what are they feeding you? ๐ŸŽถ A few photos from Central Perk at #friendsfest in Bristol yesterday, including me channeling my inner Phoebe ๐Ÿ˜‚  If you look really closely in the last photo you can see it was so warm I was melting under my wig ๐Ÿฅต Safe to say it didn't stay on for the full day!  I was nervous about being out in the heat for too long, but I coped by drinking lots of water and having regular breaks to sit in the shade ๐Ÿ•ถ  Please tell me I'm not the only one who's ready for autumn already?  #friendsfest2019 #ukbloggers #chattycaptioncommunity #bloggerstribe #blogandbeyond #reallifeandstyle #bloggersunder5k
How YOU doing? Had the best day with the sisters at #friendsfest in Bristol ๐Ÿ›‹ We booked the tickets months ago so I had something to look forward to after finishing chemo โค What's your favourite episode of Friends? I think mine is the one where Ross finds out. OR the one with the prom video ("He's her lobster!" ๐Ÿฆž) #friendsfest2019 #friendsfestbristol
I don't know why I feel so weird sharing photos of me when I'm not wearing a hat or a wig. I spend 90% of my time looking like this, and most of my close family have seen my little bald head, so here it is ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿ‘€ Anyway, it's not been the best week. It started off so well when I finally finished my last chemo session on Monday. Then on Tuesday evening I spiked a temperature and had to go straight to A&E.  Blood tests showed I was neutropaenic. For those who don't know, neutrophils are the part of your white blood cells which fight infection. On Tuesday mine were 0 (!) I'd picked up an infection and my body had no way of fighting it off.  Since then I've been pumped full of antibiotics and am patiently waiting for my immune system to build itself back up again. Hopefully this is the last hurdle before my final PET-CT scan in September ๐Ÿ™  #hodgkinslymphoma #bloodcancer #cancerjourney #cancerchicks
There's a new post on the blog this morning (www.griffblog.co.uk - link in bio!) all about our visit to the Harry Potter Studio Tour London โšก๐Ÿง™‍โ™‚๏ธ The last time I visited the Warner Bros. Studios was in January 2014, so a lot had changed since then! If you haven't been in a few years then it's definitely worth going back. Loved seeing the Hogwars Express, and the new Gringotts area is very cool!  #wbtourlondon #wbstudiotour #harrypotterfans #themakingofharrypotter #harrypotterstudiotour #harrypotterstudios #harrypotter #hogwartsexpress #gringotts #ukbloggers #blogandbeyond #chattycaptioncommunity #reallifeandstyle #thesehappysquares
Happy 16th Birthday @griffy_pics ๐Ÿฅณ weird to think I used to change your nappy and now you steal my clothes ๐Ÿ˜‚ (I wore that t-shirt during my uni fresher's week TEN YEARS AGO ๐Ÿ˜ฎ) #sisters
Happy final chemo day! Two weeks later than planned (thanks to infection and low neutrophils) I'm finally having my last BEACOPP chemo session today ๐Ÿ™Œ  In just over 6 weeks I'll have a PET-CT scan to see if it's worked, or if I need further treatment. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me ๐Ÿคž  #hodgkinslymphoma #chemotherapy #cancerjourney
Yesterday was so much fun ๐Ÿฅ‚ Yes, there are ladybirds on my dress ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ‘€ #hellomrstowers #wedding
