My Christmas

My Christmas

The nice thing about Christmas was that I didn’t think about my alopecia much because that’s when I get upset at school. Being at home with my family and having fun stops me thinking about it and I feel more confident.

Opening all my presents I was really happy to see what I got. My first favourite present that I got was my drum set. My second favourite was gross magic, my third one was booms bangs and fizzes and fourth is my inkoo.

Boxing Day

On Boxing Day, me, my mum, brother and my dad went to my nan’s house and all my Auntie’s were there, my uncle and my cousins. It was good playing with my cousins and not worrying about anything, relaxing watching Christmas movies and nan’s chocolate log was delicious!

My Hair

Before I went back to school I asked mum to give me an update on my hair/patches because I can’t see them! (they're all underneath my hair at the back and some on top at the back of my head). When you have alopecia and it grows back it’s really hard to tell because it comes through very thin and white, Mum said almost see through. She thinks she can see signs of it growing a little bit, you can’t see it in a photo so I can’t show you yet.

    Great to hear you were having so much fun over Christmas that you forgot about your alopecia. It was lovely to see you too. Your new house is gorgeous and we enjoyed our stay with you. We are super pleased that you love your gross magic set that we got for you. Hope you have had a good 1st week back at school.

    Lots of love, Auntie Nic and Uncle Ed. XXX

  4. Glad you had such a good time at Christmas, I did too,especially listening to your drumming! Try not to worry about your hair at school, its no different at school really and you used to enjoy school so much too. You are such a wonderful granddaughter and I'm really proud of you.x

  5. Hi Erin

    You don't know me but I'm an old friend of your Dad's. Just wanted to pop by and say that your blog is great, you're very brave and playing the drums is just about the coolest thing a 7 year old girl could do.

    Well done, keep up the good work!

  6. It was so lovely to see you, and the family boxing day. You and Elliot will have to get together to have some drum practice. I love the picture of you and you're mum, two awesome brave girls. Lots of love Aunty Claire x x x
