Wig shopping

Some of my Starkles wig options:

Sophie and I tried on the wigs for loan from the cancer council – I don’t think so. I either resembled an eighties failed rock star or a boofy Marge Simpson depending on the wig. However, the service is a good one. Then we went to Starkles, a wig shop, where I tried on all manner of dos. It felt like I had a synthetic animal on my head. We ended up picking one called ‘Tiana’  (the last two pictures). It’ll pass for real hair at a glance and when I don’t want to wear the beanie I can wear the wig (the cancer council does its rebate first, then I pay the difference).

    Hi Josie,
    hope all goes well with the second lot of chemo tomorrow. The wig is cute. Thinking of you, love Maree

    The last two pictures definitely the cutest.
    The middle top has you looking as if you could do a daytime home decorating show and in the top right you’re a teacher who doesn’t want to show her grey.
    Love Sarah

    Hey, good choice, looks just like you with short hair. 🙂 I’m back in Bris for a few days and can’t think of anything more useful to bring you than food. Think of it as love with calories built in. I’ll call first to make sure I can access the fridge. xx

    Hi Jose

    The last two pics actually look like a real hair do (though feel nothing like it, I’m sure). V. Good choice!

    HAve you got any pics of you with your short hairdo, before the chemo?

    Mum’s not too keen on the wig thing and keeps forgetting she’s got a stark naked head. She looks a bit like ‘M’ (Judy Dench) and I’m sure she’s ruling the world on her good days. I’ve only seen her on icam mind you because we’re staying away with our Daylesford bugs. Fingers crossed we may get to see her today for a couple of hours.

    The chemo has been pretty tough for her too, she just had the fifth round with one more to go. One of her approaches has been to remind herself that there’s nothing wrong with her spirit – just the body that feels crap at the moment. She also bought herself an Alpaca to cheer herself up! Milla named him “Nigel”.

    If you’ve still got the metallic taste going on have you tried having lemon or lime sorbet in the freezer and taking a mouthful to clear the taste before eating? It’s supposed to work.

    I am thinking of you all the time and sending so much love to you all.

    BTW You look gorgeous with, without, whatever you do.

    Sending lots and lots of love
