I have recently been diagnosed with a brain tumour which I have called Tarquin. Tarquin was a Roman emperor who was inordinately cruel and vicious but who was eventually banished and died in exile. This is the chronicle of the rise and (hopeful) fall of Tarquin the Tumour.

  2. Things always happen to the lovely people. let me know if you need anything and lets do lunch a must!!

    Thinking of you

  3. Many hugs from here and a big kick in the ass to Tarquin. I just realized you have the name of a roman Empress and by your side there’s a man called Adrian – like the great roman Emperor. Well…with two allied emperors I don’t think Tarquin will have many chances to survive. Sara xxx

  4. wow Justine! You are the most courageous and amazing woman I have ever met and I reckon that Tarquin doesn’t stand a chance against you. You have so much strength and determination. Keep smiling.

    Not seen you for a while but I am always here.


  5. Justine, how very courageous – really enjoy reading your updates. Wishing you all the very best for a speedy recovery and the banishment of Tarquin! Sarah x

  6. Hi x I’ve heard so much about you through Sarah Paye a fellow Nail lady!

    My husband has a Grade 3 Glioma which has no name but has been a big part of our lives for four years now. I am going to make my husband read your blog as you are inspiring and a lovely peace and warmth along with what is obviously a wicked sense of humour radiates from your writing.

  7. Hi Justine, I briefly met you the other day when your friend was doing a gig at the railway tavern to raise money for brain tumour research (she gave me your blog website)…my mum died from a brain tumour and coincedentally I went back to home to try and find out more about her as I blocked it out for most of my life. it was completely random that I stumbled upon the gig and I just wanted to say that my thoughts are with you and good luck with everything. Your blog is inspirational and I’m sure is helping a lot of people out there!! and thank you!
