Easter Holidays

Irchester Country Park
I had a nice time at Easter, lots of time with my family and friends. We've been to Corby swimming pool, the slide was EPIC. We walked the dogs lots and went to Irchester country park and Sywell country park. I had an awesome time at Wicksteed, my favourite rides are the pirate ship and the huge green rollercoaster!!

Me on the pirate ship!

The big rollercoaster (I'm on there!)
Unfortunately more of my hair has fallen out and I asked Mum, if I could get a proper wig for school. Mum & Dad took me to a wig shop that specialise in wigs for people with hair loss.
It's almost completely gone at the back, my left side and now down my parting too.

We sat in a waiting room when we got there, I was half nervous and half excited. I was nervous because I don't know who on earth he is and I was excited because I might get a human hair wig, this makes me happy, it will be nice not to worry about my bald patches. The man was really nice and a chatterbox a bit like me! He showed me different styles of wigs. I got to brush them and it is good because it doesn't hurt my head!! We're going back in a couple of weeks to try some out in my size and colour.

As it's been hot, Mum let me choose some bandanas to buy, I really like them, they are more comfortable than wearing hats all the time and Mum wants to keep my bald patches out of the sun.


  1. So glad you had fun during the holidays Erin, thought it funny that you were wearing your 'skull' bandana on the pirate ship. You rock! love you always grandma.x
