That is really spooky I was just about to post about the mug, that we could have the fluffy I found on one side and Lesley's willow tree pic on the other side, going to have a look at the mug you are on about.

Just had a brainwave, re Helena's mugs. Thought that we should all have the same mug! Tried to find a fluffy tit willow mug, but not a lot of them around. Then looked at the BCC shop and heyho: oh poo, can't get a picture on here, but go to the Shop page and Homeware, and the first mug is called bird on a branch, which to me, looks just like a fluffy tit willow! Think we should all get one, what do you think? Off to get din dins, but back later. xxx

I am really pleased to hear that, would miss you xx
Well went to my counsellor today, it was like chatting to an old friend today I felt really relaxed, she is happy that I have done so well with going back to work normal hours now and not concerned as she can obviously tell it is doing me good but that I am also taking care of myself.
I told her about the mug episode, she totally got it and thought it was lovely that my friend was getting a new one to replace the one she bought me, she said it was about letting go of the past and moving on which really cheered me.

Helena, no the fluffy willows are stuck with me. I still need my comfort blanket...
Clair, we need to swop daughters, mine hates shopping, and I could shop all day if I get enough coffee stops.
My daughter and I either play board games or bake together, the same things we've been doing together since she was tiny.
Janey, I forgot about your busy weekend going up and down the country to move your daughter, don't wear yourself out with the heavy stuff. Hope it all goes well.

Cant believe what I have just seen in our garden, we were sitting having our croissants and a fox came into the garden.
Now we are used to having them in the road and have seen and heard them down by the canal at night time, but I have never seen one in our garden in the 16 years I have been living here, amazing. I think it was more scared of me than the other way as it went very still when I stood up

Oh mate that is the best news for me today, I am so thrilled and relieved for you. It is definitely onwards and upwards from now on, you arent going to leave us though??

Janey, glad your GP is so supportive, it makes such a difference. And you're bound to have a lot of anxiety ahead of the genetic testing, it's nice that they understand. Do you have a date for the test? And I'm guessing there'll be the usual incredibly long stressful wait for results.
Okay, part two of my day, off to IKEA, I might even have some cream cake while I'm there to celebrate the end of my treatment.

Thank you all for being in my pocket, I had a really positive oncology appointment. I saw the registrar, and she was lovely. It's amazing the difference it makes when they are friendly and supportive. So it was a quick examination, and then discussion about the Tamoxifen. She seemed to think it would be no big issue if I had to stop it altogether, which is reassuring, and definitely they're only talking about five years in any case. She did agree that all the hormone treatments make it hard to lose weight and easy to put it on.
So that's it, apart from annual mammograms and the op on my good side, I'm done, walking forward away from the door to the cancer centre. It's made me feel a bit soppy really. But I feel really well now, and looking forward to getting on with loads of the stuff that's been on hold.
Sitting beside me in the waiting room was a pretty young girl, she looked about twenty at most. But she was talking to the person with her about starting radiotherapy. I don't know what she has, but it seems so sad at that age.

Good luck today, virtually by your side xx
Beth and you virtually by your side, as Clair says it is nearly the weekend and you can forget about the idiot of a partner you have.
Well the sun is shining here and it is promising to be a nicer day, might have a wander round the garden later to see what is poking itself out of the soil.
Love and hugs to you all xxxxx

Ooh have a lovely time with your daughter even though you have to put up with the shopping bit Must admit I dont like shopping for clothes, I tend to only do it once twice a year, do it all in one go, at the same shops because I know they do my size etc.,
Hope you are feeling better again today.
