Happy birthday to my wonderful, lovely ,kind ,generous and caring friend 💞 🎉🎈🍰🍷🎁💐. Have a fantastic day love you lots xxxxxx
Whey hey that really is a positive move forward and what a time for it to happen at your fav bands' concert xxx
Well not long got in from playing bowls this afternoon, we were the winning rink and we all won a potted geranium!! Still it looks nice in the old water feature that I am using as a planter now.
Lesley admit it you have really got the bug for gardening now Scary stuff for himself xxx
Have a lovely peaceful evening one and all.
Get you Clair, coolest mum on the block, you’ve still got it.
Was out last night was my ex colleagues leaving himself home alone again. He had blood test Thursday, Inr was 6.3, they were not happy, said if he has a fall or even a bump he’s at high risk and needs to go to A&E immediately for a scan, no warfarin for 3 days, then half dose and back for another test Thursday. Now he won’t take his painkillers as he’s worried about it. Having said that, without them he’s moaning and groaning about as much as he was taking them a week ago so guess he’s improving.
Got him outside again today on the patio, he started fretting about the garden so moi bravely got the hedge trimmer going, ok it’s cordless but still too heavy for a pipsqueak like me. Can’t tell you how relieved I was when it ran out of battery. I did manage without lopping anything off myself) to trim 5 shrubs, then got secateurs out, did a bit of weeding and oh boy am I shattered, far too hot for this gardening lark. As far as I’m concernec gardens are for sitting in with a good book and a drink.
Hope you’ve all had the lovely weather we’ve had here. My sister flies home for the States on Wednesday when the month long heatwave is due to end, typical, as soon as she got on the plane 4 weeks ago the sun came out and hadn’t gone in since. She’s been looking after her daughter in North Carolina but flew to Florida to stay with her son for a few days and While his neighbour was walking her dog by a lake, an alligator came out, tried to snatch her dog, she tried to save her dog and the flipping thing grabbed her by the leg, no trace of her remains have been fo7nd so far. The worse thing we have to worry about is being stung by a wasp, still say the UK is the best place in the world to live xx
Nothing yet, I wonder if I will get a letter over the weekend but it will probably be sometime next week. I dont know what day of the week the MDT meet or when it will be discussed by them.
Bit overcast and it has been raining overnight here so a relaxing day in the house I think today.
Have a lovely day whatever you are doing xxxx
Evening flowers. Sorry, late to the thread to give Helena a hug for quick results and Clair for a good news for OH day. Lee, we are all here and hoping you do okay. My friend has just given up the cold cap, but it was a tough decision to make. Lesley, so glad you had a fabulous day and probably did you a power of good. One more day at work and then the weekend. Just hope it's a bit brighter than today - great to see the gardening bug is spreading further afield. I can't believe it's almost that time of year for a cucumber glut, wish I could share some out on here! Love to all of you xx
Woo hoo that is me done with work now until next Wednesday. I didnt get home until 11.30pm last night after bowling so fairly knackered tonight
Hope everyone has had a good day and enjoyed sunshine
Lee, if it’s any consolation a woman I was speaking to recently at a BC support group meeting said she stopped the cold cap after a couple of sessions because it was awful, she said the chemo (which she had been dreading) wasn’t so bad but the cold cap was. Sending hugs down under to you xx
I believe with staples it usually looks a bit gross at first but settles down quickly, hopefully you will hae the drain out tomorrow and get some comfort from that.
Scary time yes, but you will soon be the other side of it my friend and we are all very very much behind you xx
I know what you mean about the value of friends when you are a carer, I do not know what I would have done without my wonderful network of close friends, they keep me sane xxx
Quick pop in, I’m shattered. Helena, so glad scan is done, mri is pretty scary, I kept m6 eyes closed the whole time I was in 5hefe, knew if I opened them I’d panic. Hope you don’t have to wait too long for results.
What a fantastic day I’ve had. Brick Lsne music hall is a lovely old converted church. It’s so over the top, it’s worth going just to look inside without the lovely meal and fabulous show. It was a 50’s and 60’s show, bought back memories of my youth with songs around when I was a teenager still at school, ie mamas and papa, Mary Quant and Biba clothes and lots of comedy moments thrown in, havent laughed so much ages. Himself is about the same, no better, no worse. He’s due a blood test tomorrow and I said that I’d phone and ask someone to come to the house and do it but he’s insisting he can get to the hospital. If he makes himself worse in the attempt he can jolly well look after himself and I’ll pack away my nurse outfit and spend my time gardening, yes, I am getting the bug xx
Oh my darling you have made me laugh out loud for the first time today, love you to bits xxxx
Just chilling so exhausted from today I cant do anything other than cook dinner.
Dont know how long it will be for the results, waiting for a follow up appt date xxx
Thanks for that, just need to get the next bit out of the way and it turn out fine xxx
Helena, at last that bit is over, did they say how long the results will take? Big hugs for you lady, hope you have a nice evening planned.
MRI went ok this morning, not something I will be in a hurry to repeat. I went in feet first which I think helped, it was not a noisy as I thought, but I did not have the luxury of any music being played, they said they wanted to be able to talk to me so no they dont do that.
Now the wait begins xxx
Think that's my favourite Neddie pic Lesley. And you deserve a day off after all that nursing, sounds a great day. Glad Himself is on the mend - and being without you for the day will make him miss you even more!!xxx
Ruby, I love that, thank you. I told himself earlier that you’d come up with a good pic to celebrate my admitance to the paddock. Just took my iPad into the mancave to show him but the meds (thank heavens for small mercies) have knocked him out . Think I’ll take myself off to bed too, up early for chiro in the morning. Wednesday I’m off to Brick Lane in London, lunch then theatre, won’t be home until about 8pm so will be a late dinner for him but think he’s recovered enough now to survive a day on his own, perfectly able to make a cup of tea now and I’ll leave him sarnies etc in the fridge. Was going to cancel and lose my money but sure he’ll be ok xx
Lee - sending you hugs. Don't know if you're a cat or dog person, so both should cover it (unless it's neither!!)
A sneaky drop in as I am at work.
You can do this mate, look what you have been through so far and come through it, we are all there stretching our hands across the equator to hug you.
Hope you enjoy your lunch with your friends.
Lee, I hope you're feeling a bit more comfortable now. And you can start to plan for the next stage, at least there are plenty of people to go through things at the same time as you. It's not a club you want to be in, but company from the other members can help you through it.
Lesley, good to hear it's an all clear, and also that himself is on the mend. And you really do sound like a gardener now.
Lee, sending big hugs to you. Enjoy your lunch with girlfriends. You’ve got a journey ahead of you and I’m sure they will be holding your hand along with your family and us lot will ge too albeit virtually xx
Postman has just been, yippee, move over Neddies and make room for one more. I cannot tell you how relieved I am, was so anxious this time. Himself has just told he too has been worrying about it. He had a good day yesterday, sat on the patio for a couple of hours in the morning before it got too hot aand after managed a shower standing up (he’s been on his knees in there’s until now). I was so proud pointing out my gardening achievements. I’ve planted all the wall pots plus the couple of flower beds we have left, weeded and pruned and generally kept things tidy, just need the bloke to come and cut the grass this week, I’m feeling very smug xx
Gosh it is quiet on here tonight, everyone must have been enjoying the lovely weather today xxx
So this was the menu from our birthday lunch today at Adams Restaurant in Birmingham. Totally and absolutely awesome, what a way to start the lead up to my birthday. xxx
Ahh thank you so much ladies! 😘 was throughly spoiled by everyone yesterday and now finishing off the packing before flying off on hols in the morning 😎☀️🍸 Feeling very blessed Xx
So sorry I’m late, but very many happy returns to Jo and Alibobs, hope youve both been celebrating in the way you love the most.
