Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Evening ladies, Rosie, hope the storms have calmed down now, yesterday we had awful gales here and rain,  not as bad today thankfully. I got fed up with waiting for my results, so i rang the breast clinic and was told the secretaries were behind sending out letters- then i received the letter this morning and it was clear thank goodness.😊

I have had a lot of work today which is unusual for a friday , but it was a lady i do occasionally, she had 2 very large baskets full of shirts and bedding😟. 

 

Joan, i made some delicious soup last night , probably the best yet- it was River cottage recipe, spicy parsnip, it was very easy but so warming with cumin, cardamon and cayenne pepper.

 

Cassie, have a lovely holiday, lots of nice food and relaxing😊

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Not much better today awful overnight power went off it was back on this morning but as I came out of the dentist it all kicked off again! Fortunately I had asked DH to drive me as I only drove the car for the first time in 5 weeks yesterday and I knew the forecast was grim! The power was down when we got back but has just returned so I rushed to the kettle and fired up Alexa to play the radio! We have storms forecast for the remainder of the day so suspect that the power will be up and down!😏

Lovewine have you had any news yet?🤔

Cassie have a great holiday!

Joan hope you hear about your appointment soon!

Wildpurl hope all is well with you?

Good morning ladies!
Joan I am so sorry that you are facing yet another test and result! DH has had the procedure done several times and they can usually give you the result immediately!
I saw the advert for the very doll that your granddaughter wants on the TV in the premier inn- whatever next!🙀 I think a yukele would be much better!
Lovewine my dad had a cataract removed when he was 90 and it made a difference to his sight. I suppose at least you won’t have a meal to prepare if you are out in the evening. 😏
I am not surprised the dogs aren’t going to the curry restaurant!🙀🤣
I arrived back safely yesterday after a good train journey and arriving in Reading in time for connection. I didn’t sleep very well in the Premier inn as I had to leave my phone on and emails kept coming in!😬
The flight left on time and we had a good flight time of 4hrs 5 mins so landed 20 mins ahead of schedule!😀 That is the shortest flight time possible it can be anything up to 4hrs 50 mins!😏
I watched a very good film free from Prime called Finding your Feet it was both funny and heartwarming.
The dog was pleased to see me but I was not pleased to see the amount of hair she is molting when you stroke her it come off in your hand!🙀
I didn’t sleep very well DH took up most of the bed as he has had it to himself for 10 days! 😡 I need space to thrash my legs about!😞
We have thunder forecast for the next 2 days I can hear it rolling in over the sea and see the lightning. Whether it will bring rain with it who knows?
It has cooled down to low 20’s in the day now and about 17 at night. So no sweating!😂 I can actually have a shower get dressed and then take the dog a walk! Instead of straight out the door without even a cup of tea. Far more civilised! 😀
Cassie I should think you will be glad to get away from the wind and rain? Do hope it improves for the rest of you ladies!
I seem to have left Christmas behind me! At least it’s all bagged up ready for our return and I haven’t got to do a mad flurry in 3 days!🙀
Next week the school will look like Christmas. It never feels like here though as the weather isn’t conducive to it!
Nearly the weekend ladies!

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Morning ladies , Rosie I hope your flight goes smoothly with out delays , weather here again is wet and foggy - typical November weather .
Cassie i see now you have explained about the woodland scene - I think it’s very relaxing !
Joan , glad you are making progress on the shopping front / totally agree with the doll !! I also understand your YD s liking for bags as I also have cupboards full but still want more 🙄!
Sorry you are once again waiting for another test , hoping it won’t be too long , i am waiting until the end of the week and then will ring if my results aren’t here - still burying my head in the sand 🙄.
Dad went to the private eye clinic Monday night - under the NHS still , he had a consultation regarding cataracts and is booked to have one removed on the 19th December which I will need to take him too and bring him back - couldn’t be a worse week though as the week before Christmas is manic for work for me , also have our dog wslking groups Xmas party at the local curry restaurant in the evening , about 15 of us but leaving the dogs at home !!
Wildpurl hope you are ok .

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Love the woodkand scene, Cassie, it gives a very cosy look. Its good EB looks well, lets hope the tests bear that out. 

Rosie, hope your trip back to Cyprus goes smoothly. Very impressed with the neat pile of ironing. I have half a basketful of clothes from our holiday in Italy to tackle, but now its winter I lack a sense of urgency. Pity about the hoodie but at least it was the only unsuccessful purchase. I have just ordered my first Xmas presents, a handbag for YD, who has a cupboard full of them already but managed to bite my lip when she asked for it, and a hang gliding session for SIL. GD has asked for a yukele but it has to have a pattern on it-and probably pink and sparkly so we will choose one tomorrow together. The other thing she asked for is a Poopsie doll, which poops slime. Its no to that one, £50 for something disgusting that will be discarded in a couple of weeks and make a mess... 

 

lovewine, glad you had a good couple of days with YS. Hope your online purchases are OK and that you get your results soon.

 

I saw the GP this morning and as I half expected he wants to refer me for more tests, a colonoscopy this time partly I think because my anaemia is worse than a month ago. Hopefully this appt will come within the two weeks its supposed to although I am rather dreading it.

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Good morning ladies it’s rather foggy here!😳
Cassie I understand your wall hanging now I thought you had spot lights aimed at it! 😂 It’s very unique and cheery!
The specialist has put me on the waiting list for the left tkr it’s likely to be March!
I am starting my journey back to Cyprus today. I have to stay over at N terminal for a very early flight tomorrow so not much sleep for me tonight! 😳
We return on Dec 19th.

Hello Ladies, Its not actually a picture but a framed 3D scene made of hand cut wood and it has its own lighting supposed to be like stars in the background I guess the twigs make it quite life like its about 14X14 inches and a couple of inches deep, its designed to put on the wall but I have it on the livingroom unit, its very sweet anyway.

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Love the picture Cassie good for you we all need a bit of retail therapy!
Lovewine I think looking after someone else’s dog must be as stressful as looking after someone else’s child! The lady that looks after our dog can have up to 20 and most of them she walks off lead! I would be worrying not only about them running off but snakes and possible poison!🙀 She does live on top of a hill with no nearby neighbours
I agree with you about queues in shops Saturday is a big no no! The best time is just after they have opened on weekday! I am lucky because I have been able to take advantage of this! Hope you are happy with your online purchases! With the exception of DH’s hoodie all mine have been fine. I have ordered a smaller one and it is being sent to DD’s address as I won’t be here to receive it!
Hope the week starts well for you all!

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Good morning ladies, Rosie, shame about DHs hoodie, i have been caught out by strange sizing on Amazon too. Hope the appointment goes well with the knee surgeon, at least you have a successful outcome on the other one, so its worth having it done, although may not feel like it at the time😬, hopefully by next years family holiday in Wales you will be much more mobile and pain free.

 

Cassie, well done on the bargains , very satisfying! I love the picture.  Hope you have a lovely break if you are not on the board before you leave. 

 

We have enjoyed seeing YS , i am taking him to Rugby station shortly, he has had a relaxing couple of days which i think he needed 😳. We had to walk one of our dog walking groups 2 very large and boisterous dogs yesterday afternoon, she was attending a family celebration, i was very stressed worrying about losing them, there were several of us out for a walk, but it’s worrying when its not your dog! Thankfully there were no dramas and it was a nice walk, i dont think i would like to change my job to a dog walker, i was thinking of branching out, but i think its too much of a worry!

 

I have also made some online purchases this weekend, hoping they are suitable, must admit i rarely shop in stores anymore, find the whole queuing and traipsing around very tedious these days!

 

I havent heard yet about my results, will ring if not heard by friday😬

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

been shopping again!! I could not resist the framed woodland scene decoration, I had to crop the image though so I am not sure you get the full affect, the website said the image was too large, it was only from my phone so I was surprised

Good morning ladies!
Cassie don’t forget your passport either!😀
Sounds like you found some bargains I do hope they are too your liking when they arrive! 😏 I ordered a motohome printed motif hoodie for DH and when I unpacked it I was horrified, it would have fit a very rounded man. 🙀 Sizes do differ so much sometimes large fits him perfectly and sometimes he needs XL. I ordered it from a seller through Amazon but have had to pay the postage to return it as it isn’t a seller problem!🙄
Cassie I am pleased to hear that EB at least looks and seems well, sometimes chemo is not the way forward. Hopefully his tests will reveal he is stable.
Lovewine hope you are having a lovely weekend with YS. Have you had your results yet? I have my hospital appointment tomorrow with the knee surgeon. Hoping now they will get me on the list so I can have the replacement. I have to say it’s now 9 months since I had the rights one and I am pain free in that leg! 😊Sometimes it feels a bit stiff but overal I am pleased with the result. The left one is driving me crazy even pain killers don’t work now, fortunately they are several seats on the high street in Worcester when I can stop,I feel so unfit as well. I see people much older than me walking normally! It’s very depressing after all I have been through with the cancer!
Unfortunately they have given me a different surgeon to see as they had to make another appointment. The original one was just going through the NH hoops to get the second one done!
Anyway enough of that I am concentrating on Christmas and seeing all my lovely children and Grandchildren!
Is anyone watching I’ m a Celebrity? I have found myself watching it in the absence of anything else! I was heaving last night when Noel and Harry held the critters in their mouths and I couldn’t watch the fish eye activity!🤮I think this is a step too far! 🙀
Enjoy the rest of the weekend ladies it looks like another grey day here!😞
DH says they are having storms in Cyprus and the power keeps going off!😬

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Morning Ladies,

 

It's very grey and drab here today and raining its due to carry on all day. Your ironing pile is very neat and tidy Rosie, I must admit when I do iron it is usually a huge amount too but mostly put on hangers otherwise I find they are all creased again by the time the clothes are worn.

Glad the results were clear Joan.

I have not really thought about preparing for the trip yet next weekend will be fine the only things checked have been travel insurance and suncream and mosquito repellent, oh and also re-organised the dates that my fresh flowers are delivered, I signed up with a company about three months ago who deliver flowers every week if you want them, every 2 weeks is plenty for me and sometimes every three weeks, they last very well, they were due this Weds so there is no point for a few days.

 

I did try to stop myself from buying anything in the black Friday sales but gave in and ordered 2 winter tops and a dress from Debenhams, from the Mantaray range which I like it is very similar to White stuff. The order was £59.10 including delivery so quite a bargain.

 

EB seems and looks well but has had a whole load of tests recently to see how he is doing and what will be planned next, I do worry for him though because he could not tolerate chemo and it was abandoned after 2 treatments.

 

Have a good weekend

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Good Morning ladies!
Lovewine what a shame that you had to cancel your new car maybe things will be a bit more certain for OH’s work after the Brexit deal if ever it is agreed!? 😳
Hopefully your car passed its MOT and the repairs weren’t too costly?🙀
DH’s car in Cyprus had a problem for several weeks it had a part changed twice but still didn’t work. YS, who is a motor technician, found him a similar part for £20 which I am happy to report he took back to Cyprus and his car is now working! 😁
Did you find any bargains yesterday? The tv adverts were driving me mad!
Is anyone watching the Dynasties by David Attenborough on a Sunday night? I saw the one about penguins last Sunday and it was most interesting! I think it’s about lions this Sunday.
Lovewine I was puzzled at your post warning also? Have a great weekend with YS!😀
Hope all other ladies enjoy their weekend also. I have a library book to finish and get back by Tuesday morning!

Re: Anyone due to start chemo April 14??

Rosie i am impressed with the Ironing pile , it is daunting facing a large load🙀. I am stuck at home today as my car is having some repairs and a MOT, i was hankering after a 4 wheel drive to help me get about better living so rurally, we had just about ordered a new Dacia Duster when we had to hold off due to the uncertainty at OHs work🤨.

Talking about booking flights, i booked mine about 6 weeks ago for next june when we return to Menorca, i paid £134.00 for us both, so am very happy with that!

Oxford is good for me again , most dates are fine in the summer too!

YS is coming on his own which is nice for us to see him, as far as i know he is here at Christmas too.

Think i may do some Black Friday browsing since i am stuck at home😊.

 

Not sure why my previous post had warning emotional content at the top!
