I have been asked “what’s with the still smiling? where did it start….”

My smile has changed hugely .. these are pre cancer

Just a few from phone….  not the best pictures but it shows the OLD ME …. but what I found interesting is that there’s twenty times more photos post surgery and diagnosis.

WHY….

This has me thinking a lot, I have a few theories. My first is over weight mummy syndrome, I realised how few pictures of my before smile and face I had, how if the cancer had won there wasnt much to look back on, the photo smiles were limited, whereas the hidden behind children, half body photos there were more of.

My other reason and or theory
– having so many now is my way of spamming picture’s to everyone, to show them my new face, and school run gauntlet will be less scary.

In theory taking all the pictures It won’t allow me to forget my new face, It won’t allow me to be shocked looking in mirror, for myself it hasnt worked fully, things like putting on face cream and lip salve are buggers at the moment. I seem to end up dissatisfied, in a bit of a “OH.. Bugger” MOMENT….

Now here’s some recent ones…

you’ve seen enough of them, its the right side muscles that doesnt respond properly and therefore gives me my wonky bit.. I can feel it “getting in the way” when I speak and or smile, well anythin really. Its harder to smile than it was as I need to think about how the rest of my face looks aswel.

I GUESS WHAT IM SAYING IS…

A SMILE IS FREE…..
ITS CONTAGIOUS
IT IMPROVES A DAY
SPAM YOUR DAY WITH SMILES.
WONKY SMILES ROCK.

I try and end all my posts with “still smiling” coz its hard to type it without meaning it and if I do it I hope you smile too…
