Wow Bythesea, that has leapt out from behind a hedge on you hasn't it???
We will all be here to hold your hand!
Were you at the LGFB session this week - should add to the Glam look - you go rock it hun!!
I'm trying to get healthy with all my messings about - I cook 99% of all meals from scratch but there's a lot of rubbish in breads and stuff so I want to try and go self sufficient???
I am also going to try making 'milk' from tiger nuts ..... I've tried almond and soya milk and I don't like it, so I thought I would give the tigers a go!
Have a lovely evening with your loved ones tonight - I will be saving my snuggling for the weekend!

I'm feeling much better today - bones are still aching but not as bad as yesterday.
I'm trying to make some ciabatta bread - yesterday's attempts were a disaster - Mr Hollywood had the wrong ingredient amounts on his website and today my food processor has stopped working.
Quick trip to John Lewis and I'll be attempting another batch today 👩🏻🍳 .... I'll let you know how I get on!

I had to cancel my LGFB because I had an infection I’ve moved it to April, after chemo, to make sure I can make it : and now there’s something to look forward to xx
I’ve noticed we’re living a celebrity life 😂😂:
- shave like Sinead O’Connor / Carla Delavigne
- shine like Kojak
- bathe like W Houston

you are all putting me to shame with your pancakes - we are having ours on Friday when me and the OH get together with syprup and ice cream!
Are we allowed to give up Chemo for Lent??
Otter - if I were you, I'd have a nice hot bath and use the lemons meant for your pancakes in a hot toddy instead - plenty of whisky! Should go down a treat with the cocaine! You wild child you!
My pelvis crush has continued thru the day and my temp is all over the place ... and I thought I was doing so well!

First, a huge and gentle hug for Anadan. I am so sorry that you're in such pain. It is just the most tiring, wearing and difficult symptom. I wish you a more peaceful time whether it be morphine (or cocaine!) induced, so you can get some rest and respite from feeling wretched. When is your next chemo?
I am thrilled that there is the possibility of a get together, but less thrilled than I can't make it. Unfortunately it is three days before chemo number 8 (assuming I stay on schedule) which is also my last one, so I probably ought not to be out counting my chemo chickens before they have hatched and I have completed the course. I also have a longstanding commitment to speak at a conference at City Hall so will be across and down the river waving to you Prosecco peeps and wishing I could join you. Another time I hope.
Like Otter, I've been at the hospital this morning and got the all clear for chemo number 6 on Thursday. Paclitaxel part 2 is on. Also like Otter, I am using codeine a bit, but not cocaine! Who else is scheduled for this week? I am also booked in for my pre-surgery consultation at the beginning of March which has made the next step v. real.
I've heard only brilliant things about Moving Forward courses and definitely intend to do one when I am finally in a position to move forward or move anywhere after surgery and radiotherapy. I think (know) I will find anxiety and worry about recurrence a challenge so I will take whatever I can get in terms of help/support.
I met someone last week who had BC five years ago and she told me that she is still in touch with several of the women she met via her monthly chemotherapy thread. She was thrilled to know that the threads continue and are as helpful/supportive/fun/encouraging as she found them.
Off to make my batter and ruin my floor/ceiling soon. Toodlepip. xx

Chemo brain I'm sure I wrote codine but cocaine might work better 🤗🤗🤗🤗
Hospital appointment went ok got go ahead for Thursday oncologist was thinking of not going ahead at all as I've been getting increased neuropathy but decided es it could be linked to my fibromyalgia not the chemo that we would go ahead. As I don't want to have gone through all this an not finish otherwise l would always be wondering if I might get it back somewhere else
They are doing a Moving forward course here in October so I've been booked on by my BCN as its run at the hospital
Not sure if I will do pancakes today will see how I feel later as got soaking wet on way back from hospital so feeling very cold and achy
