This is yesterday's snap Bythesea x
Good luck tomorrow Carole maybe Lesley will send Wendy in to see you while she's presenting x.
Otter maybe redness is just wind burn??? If we are allowed a wind burn tan I'll need to find somewhere really blowey for my summer hols!
Harryfiddler hope you're doing well over there, note there's no people swimming in my sea ha Brrrrrrrr!
Good luck tomorrow Lesley presenting. Your amazing!
I've had my first real lazy week just not feeling on top form so booked my LGFB course for Monday. It's at the same place I'll get my rads so going for a recce.

Just rocking the beetroot look at present and feels warm
I got a Clinique mostisure cream which isn't SPF so I think I need a higher as I wouldn't normally need anything on my face so kind of proves skin is more sensitive due to this 🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢☢☢☢☢☢☢is going to make it worst

A suntan in February Otter? you shouldnt be complaining!!
My face cream is SPF30 - I think 15 might be a bit low - have you had your LGFB session yet? was there anything in there moisturiser wise. Alot of the big marque creams are actually SPF but dont advertise it - might be worth looking at the small print or online?
I am a very naughty sunworshipper and dreading having to cover up in factor 50! but it's only sensible .... appartently! 😜 xx

Question l know our skin is meant to be more sensitive to sun so I got a face cream with SPF 15 and put on before I went out today just looked at my face and it's bright red like you get if you have had wind burn
It was Olay so would have thought it would have been ok any suggestions as to what I could use as I hate the smell of suncream

I've just had a lovely walk along the river in Romsey cold but sun made all the difference lots of snowdrops and crocuses out giving the hope Spring is just round the corner 🌞🌞🌞🌞
I love blueberries so will give it a go as I think they are going to find it hard to find a vein for last one as two have blown and hardened on right and left isn't much better 😱😱
The latest I've heard from work is they have taken on 4 Super temps as my friend is calling them as they have to pick up the job without any training as she leaves this friday which leaves no team till I go back so a bit of as mess but director fault so trying not to loose sleep over it
Hope everyone has had a god day🤗🤗🤗🤗

Enjoy your greens Carole ..... I've been munching on brocolli and spinach this week - my HB was 121 🌱
I'm off to Bracknell - not the leafiest bit of Berkshire.... I should really pop in and see my Aunt who is only 12 miles away - but I'm just not up to it .... so I'll be sneaking in and out of the county .... she's got an amazing radar that woman!

Hello everyone, just back from a cold but gloriously sunny walk with my daughter at Wisley which was really uplifting. Something about seeing new life and tenative buds emerging, even in these temperatures, that was moving and encouraging.
Anadan, so sorry about your poor veins. This may be a load of rubbish, but I have been told that blueberries are excellent for veins and one of the chemo nurses mentioned it to me as a supportive thing to eat for veins when I was debating whether to go the port route or not. If you hate them, forget it, but if you like them, it might be worth a go? Hope you managed to get some sleep eventually despite the evil steroids? Are you on a fortnightly regime now?
Lesley, I so empathise with hating all the darn drugs we get given. I think occasionally that has led me to undertreat symptoms and side effects, but I am always so aware that whatever I take will help, but also lead to more nonsense. I really feel my head hasn't adjusted from my pre-diagnosis state which was you would be lucky to find paracetamol and a plaster in our house. Long may you stay side-effect and symptom-lite. No feeling guilty - it is just brilliant that you are feeling okay, especially after the long haul we've all been through.
Harryfiddler, I hope you are fast asleep now and look forward to our daily update on summer when you wake up. Yay for completing chemo 5 - is it one more to go for you? I think I am an oddity (in so many ways) in having 8 cycles to do. And I'm with you - chemo is rubbish. It is horrid and intrusive and worrying, but we have all got on with doing it anyway and for that reason, I reckon we should be proud of ourselves. We faced the reality and our fears. So there!
Otter, so sorry to hear about the additional stress of work. Not what you need at any time, but especially not now. Is there any update?
Carole and JC1262: how are you both doing?
Sending sunny Wednesday love to everyone. xx
