Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Good evening ladies, thankfully my work has finished for the weekend, really had enough of bedlinen, yes Rosie, you wouldn’t expect to be starching cloths these days, but sadly they do, it is usually my older clients who request it😏☺️.

Glad you enjoyed the Sky Garden , we went 2 years ago and met YS and his then GF, i really enjoyed it, we had a sunny, hot day so the views were stunning, you were lucky to get in , i had to book online on a certain date 3 weeks before our visit and it was very difficult to get tickets, so well done you😊! 

Dont blame you staying here for a couple of extra weeks, at least you have a warm apartment, hope you Can sort out your ear issues, my dog walking friend has had similar issues and visited the G.P yesterday and was given a nasal spray which has helped her ear problem.

Have had a major spring clean today in my kitchen and living room, also had a move around of my furniture and my room looks bigger, have decluttered which helps, i think tomorrow we are going to tidy up the garden and have a bonfire- always a personal favourite of mine!🔥

Hope everyone is alright.

Good Morning ladies!
Lovewine I do sympathise with your over bed linen! 🙀I can’t believe that people are still using starch tablecloths! 🙀 I suppose OH is waiting with baited breath re the BREXIT news nest week!😬 Very worrying times!
Thank you for your ideas re London. We had picked up a free leaflet and DH found an advert for Sky Garden and you could apply for free tickets online! I tired but there was only one ticket left! I later phoned the venue and they said if we got there before 11.15 we could go in! There was a queue on arrival where everyone was showing their tickets and the guy was making some go to the back of the queue as there were trying to get in earlier than their time slot! As we got to the front of the queue without tickets I thought we would be sent away. But he let us in when I explained I had tried to get them online and spoken to someone earlier in the morning! Result! It has 35 floors and an amazing view of London from the top from the safety of a viewing platform! There are bars and restaurants at the top!
We then went for coffee in Convent Gardens and went on to see The School of Rock in the afternoon! We got half price last minute tickets! Catherine Tate was excellent the previous night as was The School of Rock! So all in all a very busy 24 hours. I found the stairs in the tube stations rather challenging 😳
The day before we went to London I made the decision to stay here rather than return to Cyprus tomorrow! I just can’t face the stormy weather they are still enduring and know it will be cold inside the property!😒 Also I am not happy about my returning temperature it feels like I could have an inner ear infection brewing so don’t want to be flying with that!😳
DH is retunrning alone tomorrow for 2 weeks. He will come back for a week on Jan 26th and then we will both return on Feb2nd.
Hope everyone else is ok, Joan I expect that you are busy before going in for you op?
DH had his 3rd screening test returned yesterday and although it was clear he said he had 3 of the 4 symptoms they told to watch out for!😳
Meeting up,with our friends that were on a cruise over Christmas today at a garden centre for lunch!
Hope you all manage a restful weekend!

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Good morning ladies , haven’t drawn breath all week , work very busy and have had an enormous amount of bedlinen 🙄, one lady sent her linen tablecloths with a starch can in the basket and asked for them all to be starched !!
Rosie , sorry about DHs hernia and isn’t that typical of a man to still do things they shouldn’t !!🙄
Hope you are enjoying London , as regards filling the time I am not a great help in that , we either go into the British museum or the V & A , or go for a nice glass of wine in a nice pub - we used to go in The Mudlark a lot as we used to watch the t.v series by the same name - finding artefacts on the foreshore of the Thames ! Hope you find something suitable until your train back !
Hope everyone is having a good week , I think it’s going past quickly , nearly the weekend😊.

Good morning ladies!
The doctor said DH probably had the start of a hernia but it wasn’t bad enough to operate and he shouldn’t carry heavy things! So what does he do in the afternoon go and ride his bike and carry it down and up afterward 2 flights of stairs in the storage unit! There is a freight lift he could have put it in but no, then he starts wincing when he gets back! I’m afraid I didn’t have any sympathy!😡
Joan I hope that you enjoyed your Qi Gong yesterday. M&S have nightware in their sale you could look online to save pushing around in the crowded store! 🙀
Today we are going for a Chinese with our friends up stairs and off to London tomorrow!
Can anybody recommend where we can fill a few hours on Thursday I booked us back on the 8.00pm train!🙀 We are staying in Leicester Square at Premier Inn and depart from Paddington. We have done the Big Bus!
I am a little worried as yesterday I had a temperature in the night and then again yesterday on 2 occasions and had to take paracetamol! I don’t have any obvious symptoms like I did last week, but don’t want to go back to Cyprus spiking a temperature! I think if I am no better when I get back I will have to see the doctor! 😬 In the meantime I will have to stay on top of it with regular paracetamol!
Lovewine it’s so dark in the morning for your dog walking it’s nearly 20 past 7 and it still pitch black!
Cassie and Wildpurl hope all is well,back at work?

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Rosie, good that MIL is out of hospital and back to normal, even if cantankerous. Im sorry OH is having to repeat his screening test but great that the second one was clear.

 

lovewine, its not surprising youre feeling a bit flat after having had YS to stay for two weeks. And its natural fir you to worry about him. But he does seem to have coped really well with the ending of his relationship and as you say he has a busy life. But we never stop worrying about our children, no matter how old they are.

Good morning ladies!
MIL is back home we went to see her yesterday and she was her normal self although more cantankerous than usual! 🙀We took her to Aldi to do her shopping and she wanted a small brown loaf, they only had large ones which she didn’t want even though DH suggested she halved it before putting it in the freezer! We picked up a couple of things we needed and I said to DH I thinkI will get her that loaf as I was worried she wouldn’t have any bread. When we have gave it her at home she said she didn’t want it she didn’t eat that type of bread and threw it back at DH! 🙀
Lovewine I am glad that your boiler is repaired and was a simple fault! I know how you feel with YS going back especially after 2 weeks! Maybe he will meet a nice young lady this year? I expect the dogs are missing him too?
Joan it’s always a relief to get the decorations safely stored  away! It’s never easy telling people your diagnosis as they don’t know what to say to you for the best!
DH is going to doctors this am as he has had an intermittent lower groin pain for a while he suspects it maybe a hernia! 😬 He is awaiting his 3rd bowel screening test the second one was clear but he had to do a third as the first one wasn’t! All worrying times!
We are going to London on Wednesday to see Catherine Tate so looking forward to that.😂
Today when DH comes back from doctors we have some items to take to the hospice charity shop we have been meaning to take them for several months so today is the day!
Hope the week starts well for you all!

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Good morning ladies . Feeling a bit deflated now as YS left last night after nearly 2 weeks home - I will miss him and I do worry about him ... don’t like to think of him being on his own too much 😮, although he does have a busy life !
Rosie , glad you are feeling better , these viruses can be very difficult to shift , there are lots of people I know with coughs and also a nasty stomach bug going around 😬!. What do you have planned this week? Hopefully mil is feeling better now .
Joan , enjoy your Monday , at least the week starts with nice activities ! Regarding Pajamas there are a lot in the sales at the moment so you should find a good selection .
It’s not easy telling people your diagnosis , but at least people rally around ( mostly !) .
Have a good day ladies .

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Rosie, its good that your viral infection has at last cleared and didnt linger on for weeks. Sorry to hear about MIL, how is she now? Good that the CT scan was clear though.

 

Lovewine, what a relief to have your boiler working again, especially with the cold weather being forecast. I think I will be in hospital for 4 to 5 days, so must treat myself to some new pyjamas. I feel a bit in limbo at the moment but hopefully will find out about appt times early this week. 

 

All decorations now down and stored. Phew! Back to normal tomorrow, with a nice start, Qi Gong in the morning and archiving in the afternoon. Quite a lot on the rest of the week, though that might be stymied if the appts clash. Also have to face letting various people know about the diagnosis, I held off with most people because its not what you want to put on a Xmas card but need to bite the bullet now. 

 

Hope you all have good weeks.

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Good afternoon ladies, Joan , what a shame your surgery date clashes with your family trip, i think with all the appointments you will have the time will soon go quickly. Do you know how long you will be in hospital for after the surgery?
Rosie, sorry to hear about MILs admittance to hospital, i hope she is back home now, good news the CT was clear though.
Thankfully the boiler is now fixed, wasnt too much of a problem, just a faulty fan.
Met some of our dog walking friends this afternoon and YS came too which was nice, we ended up in the village pub at the end for a well earned 🍷!

Good Morning ladies!
Cassie hope that you enjoyed your walk with ED and GS I expect that he goes back to school soon? 

Lovewine I expect that YS does get enjoyed by being spoilt by you, the dogs will miss him!
Glad that your cordless dyson has made life easier for you! I do hope,that your boiler gets sorted out today it’s not the weather you want it going wrong! Thank goodness that you have a wood burner! We are due to return to Cyprus on 12th Jan which I am not looking forward to as they have had a lot of rain and temperatures between 14-17. Which sound high but I can assure you that it is not inside as there are no carpets and no central heating! 🙀
Joan I am so pleased that you treated yourself to a new iPad it’s typical that the old one decides to work now though! 😬
I am glad that you have a date for your op you will find that the next 3 weeks go very quickly! It’s rather a blow that it coincides with YD’s birthday celebrations, maybe they will let her change the date?
Our Christmas tree comes out of a box and fits together in 3 parts and then - hey presto, plugs in and lights up!😄 We got it half price in the Dunelm sale last January!
We went to the theatre in Malvern last night to see the pantomime Snow White, Sue Pollard from Hi Di Hi was the wicked queen! In the interval DH had a missed call from his Y Sister and I had a message to say that MIL had been taken to hospital as she was feeling dizzy and the doctor didn’t like the sound of her symptoms! They were keeping her overnight so we will have to see how thing are today! BIL, who is the nearest said she seemed ok and that the CT scan results were clear! She will be 93 in April! My dad got to 93!
I am meeting my sister in Hereford today so I must get up to get to the station!
Have a good weekend ladies!

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

A very belated happy new year ladies. The week has been rather busy, with the last three days spent with GCn. We did have New Years Day to ourselves, which we spent looking at churches in Gloucestershire. Had a lovely NYs Eve with friends, on a bit of a high after the CT results. Now have a date for surgery -28th Jan, which is later than I had hoped. unfortunately it means we will miss spending a few days staying at the NT property YD has booked to celebrate her 40th birthday but that was the first date they could offer. Still waiting to get dates to see the consultant and for pre-op so a bit up in the air. At least I will have some time to get things organised re work commitments.

 

Lovewine, hope your misbehaving boiler is now sorted out and you are seeing the benefits of your cordless vacuum. Good news that ES and DILs house is sorted, he has obviously inherited your skill at securing bargains with the sofa.

Rosie, has your viral infection cleared up now. Youre very organised getting your tree down and stored, we have all that to do on Sunday. We tend to leave it to the last possible day, it always looks so bare afterwards. At least OH and I dont argue over the taking the tree down, unlike putting it up.

Cassie, you do sound well positioned to see the fireworks. We spent NYE in London a few years ago and went down to the river to watch, quite an experience though very crowded, it was still free then. Glad your brother is doing well. Hope you had fine weather for your walk, it was glorious here today, had a lovely walk along the seafront with the children, well we walked, they mainly ran. Oh to have the energy of a 6 year old. 

Wildpurl hope you had an enjoyable Xmas and managed to get some crafting done.

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Good evening ladies, a very chilly one here today and to cap it all our boiler broke down again last night, we have someone coming out tomorrow to fix it, we have the woodburner so that’s something !

Cassie i am glad to hear your brother is doing well apart from his knees, hope you enjoyed your walk with ED and GS.

I have been very busy all week with work, hopefully by next week it will have quitened down a little😏

Rosie, YS booked a couple of extra days off so he goes back to London on sunday, hes benefited from some spoiling by me i think😊, its nice to have him home and i always miss him when he leaves, but its nice when life returns to just the two of us!!

Not much to report other than my cordless dyson came on wednesday and its made life much easier, no wires to fall over and very powerful, not very exciting i know ! ☺️

Have a nice weekend ladies, Rosie, how long are you here for before returning to Cyprus?

Good Morning Ladies,

 

I do get quite a view of the fireworks over London on New years eve and of course the 5th November I can only just about manage to see the glow from the ones on the Thames though. EB seems to fine at the moment he's knees are very stiff though bless him even getting out of a black cab is very difficult for him these days, thats what happens after years of being a carpet fitter!

 

I am hoping to meet with GS and ED later this morning for a walk have a lovely day ladies

Good Morning ladies!
Lovewine I hope your YS has recovered after his New Year celebrations! I think it’s tomorrow he returns home?
I know what you mean about getting back into routine I lose track of the day it is completely!🙀
Good plan giving ES and DIL your Vax cordless!😉 You need a powerful one for your pet hair!
We did actually go to see Mary Poppins last night as I didn’t fancy any of the other films and we haven’t taken advantage of our cinema code 2 for 1 for ages, also a local boy was playing the role as one of the leading children! It was well done but you had to have a knowledge of the old film. DH went to sleep for a part of it! 😳 We has fish and chips afterwards! 😜
We took our Christmas tree down yesterday and DH took it back to the store. The living space looks much bigger and lighter!
Joan hopefully you will get your appointments through soon so you don’t have to spend too long stressing!
Wildpurl make the most of your last few days holiday!

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Good morning ladies and a very happy new year to you all 🥂😊... ours was a quiet one which I quite like , ES and DIL came for a walk and a coffee yesterday and OH picked YS up from Rugby station - he looked very pale and tired and hung over !!!
I have given ES my Vax cordless hoover as I have treated myself to a Dyson cordless in the sales 😊.. it’s coming today hopefully !! It’s more powerful so I will find it easier - that’s my excuse anyway 😉!!
Am happy it’s normal working hours again today as I have found the extended holiday quite tedious - I worked but OH and everyone else did not , so I will be happy to be back in the routine again .
Rosie it looks like ES and DILs house is all in place , just waiting for the seller to find somewhere , they have ordered 2 new sofas in the sales from SCS so they are excited about those - dark slate grey fabric which looks lovely .
Cassie I hope you enjoyed your Prosecco , expect it will be busy at work for you this week!
Joan , hope you had a good new year with your friends .
Wildpurl , expect you will be planning your garden growing season soon ..
Rosie I expect it will be nice not to rush about for the next few days - it is very tiring travelling and socialising I think 😮, not sure there is much on at the cinema .. we wanted to go the other day but didn’t fancy seeing any of the films , not liking Mary poppins at all the first time around either !!

Have a good week ladies - Joan I expect appointments will be coming in fast , hoping you are not waiting too long .

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Happy New Year ladies!
Hope you all had a good New Year’s Eve?
Cassie did you see the fireworks from your flat? Hope you enjoyed your Prosecco!🍾🤪
We had a good evening playing games and I didn’t drink too much! We watched the fireworks from our friends 4th floor apartment that were going up all over the city, thankfully they didn’t last too long! The Catherdral bells rang out also at midnight and we saw and heard it all from the comfort of not leaving the building!😊
Lovewine I am not sure I picked the virus up from YGS as he had a cough and cold and thankfully I don’t have either of those! I still have the swollen glands and feel a bit off colour but I am much improved. Just hoping DH doesn’t get it! 😬 I think I may have just exhausted myself with all the travelling and stress of keeping everyone happy! We have only just got our feet on the ground it has been non stop since we arrived! We have a few days now to relax.
If the weather holds we may go and stroll round the lake at Croome and then get the box from the store to put the Christmas tree away!
We may go to the cinema tomorrow not sure what to see though? I didn’t enjoy Mary Poppins the first time round so won’t be seeing the sequel!
Joan hope you enjoyed your evening!
I think you were having a quiet new year Wildpurl?
Lovewine you must be looking forward to YS returning for a few more days. Hope your parents had a good Christmas and that your dad will enjoy better health this year.
I hope that everything is progressing well with ES and DIL’s home purchase?
Have a quiet relaxing day ladies!

Happy  and a healthy new year to all ladies whatever you are doing this evening, YD is in New York to celebrate her Birthday tomorrow she arrived on Saturday and will return next Saturday.

 

There is a bottle of prosecco in the fridge with my name on it xx
