Sorry I can't meet up next week. We are away for the weekend celebrating our eldest daughters 30th birthday - in Disneyland Paris of all places! However she wanted it and our grandson who's now 15 months will love it! We're not back until next week and I have a few things to catch up on during the rest of the week, including babysitting, so can't make any other day. Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and hope treatments are continuing to work well for you and side effects are minimal, especially Helen with the neuropathy SE.
I’m sorry I can’t make 12th. I know everyone is very busy but on the off chance anyone is free I could do 13th or 14th. If not then I’ll see you all in the New Year. Hope everyone is doing well and treatments running smoothly.
Love to all
Morning all, looking forward to seeing you this afternoon, it’s another beautiful day on the sunny south coast ☀️. Hope to see you Judy but if not we’ll see you next time.
Ive just returned from holiday and have been checking the dates put up by Helen. I should be able to make 10th October but will know a bit nearer the time so I’ll check in on here a bit closer to the day.
Hope everyone is doing well on their treatments and good luck for anyone getting results.
hope you are all well. I can make 10th October for a meet up. I can’t do the 3rd as I have giant grand-puppy staying then for a couple of days and I don’t want to leave him in case he eats the house 🏠🐶
love to all x
I hope you have all been able to enjoy our long, and sometimes very hot, summer. Sorry to hear you are feeling a bit lonely DC, it is a lonely old world out there for us secondary ladies. As to dates I can’t do 26th as we are away but can do the other dates. If most of you can do 26th please go for that rather than wait for all of us to agree on another date later on?
Good luck to everyone waiting for scan results (Helen and Judy), I’m also having a scan in a weeks time and then getting the results once I get back from holiday, I’m sure they will be available just before we go but I’d rather wait until after!
would love to catch up. been feeling a little lonely recently. Can't do 5th or 12th September as I have doctors on 5th and dog training on 12th (yes we got ourselves a dog).
I’m so sorry i can’t make today. I hope you have a lovely afternoon and hopefully I’ll catch up with you next time. Hope you are all doing well and having a lovely summer.
Love to all
Sorry ladies, is it possible to do 24th instead? I know I was the one that said 23rd (Monday) but I've now got something on that I need to do for my daughter so can't make that afternoon due to the long drive home. Hope this gets read and everyone knows which date it is. Maybe we can all confirm? I won't travel all the way down to Portsmouth if it's a date that a group of us can't make - apologies Judy !!
As most of us have replied with the dates we can do shall we opt for next Monday ,23rd? I realise DC can't make it but we havent yet come up with any dates later in the month or August so hopefully we can find a date for next time that you can make DC. The rest of us seem to be able to make 23rd and it may be slightly quieter if some of the schools are still in term time (although i'm not sure how many as I've looked at the termtime calendar for Hants). In any case I hope the Mums and kids havent got bored by then so don't all head off to Gunwharf!
If anyone, other than DC, can't make 23rd can they post and we could change it to 24th as everyone seems to be able to make the Tuesday as well (I've only suggested the Monday to get a date fixed)
Have a good rest of the week and hopefully catch up with as many of you who can make it next week.
Hello all, glad to hear everyone’s doing well. Just back from France and it was very hot but we had a pool to cool down it thankfully. We went with the family there were 13 of us and had a fabulous time.
I can’t do 16th but I can do 23rd, 24th, 25th. Not the 30th as that’s drugs day. I can do 10th but that’s tomorrow and prob way too short notice for everyone.
Hope everyone is keeping cool look forward next meetup,
love to all
sorry, none of those dates work for me - however AFTER Wed 25th I'll have some free time (last day of School). I do believe that MOST Hampshire Schools have 23rd as last day of term, and lots of Schools are letting kids finish on 20th. we're doing a couple of extra days because we started a couple of days late in January. Also I've asked for Wednesdays off from September so if anyone else is free on Wednesdays that's going to be a good day for me.
Hi ladies and thanks Helen for coming up with a list of dates.
I cant make 16th and it may be a bit close to get everyone who’s interested to reply in time for 10th (although I’m OK for that date) . If it’s neither of those dates could we make it the next week (23rd onwards) as I think the schools won’t have broken up and Gunwharf will be a bit quieter. Having said that I realise that might be a problem for dragoncarrine so we’ll see what everyone else replies with and go for the date that suits the most.
Have a good weekend everyone, enjoy the sun and the football if you’re a fan.
Just back from a holiday in a very hot France which, unlike the UK, didn't seem to want to cool down overnight! A lovely time away though with a wedding in the middle of it all which made it extra special (although not for a relation, it was a friends' daughter who my eldest went to primary school with and the parents are close friends)
I can make most days so can fit in with anyone else's plans. I am happy to come down to Portsmouth as long as its not a Friday as the traffic home is too heavy. It makes sense as you are all down there and at the moment the weather is so much nicer than in the winter when I do it.
Oh, and just had recent cT scan resuts and everything is stable with no soft tissue mets (as they removed the one I had in the liver during my op). Staying on Fulvestrant and denosumab for now.
ps Anyone else with mets living in Hants/Winchester/Portsmouth area is welcome to join in just watch this page for details about time and place.
glad all is going well for everyone. I haven’t been on here much as Ive been to Scotland for a couple of weeks and going to France tomorrow for a week so I won’t be around for a June meetup. But July will be good for me.
Thats brilliant news Judy so pleased for you. Nicky glad you are doing well after surgery, be interested to hear all about it.
Hope everyone is getting to enjoy this lovely weather isn’t it gorgeous (sorry if it’s raining when you read this 😉).
I’m happy to make Portsmouth if it’s easier for most, but I don’t mind Winchester either.
Take care and love to all.
I was also going to update this thread as it’s gone very quiet. I’ve not been around much as I have been recovering from my operation as well as being busy with grandson plus a holiday. I’m not around for the rest of this month, a holiday planned some time ago in France which involves a wedding in the middle of it which we’re looking forward to, so I won’t be able to make any dates in June. However I should have more time in July so happy to meet up some time then. Maybe if a June meeting goes ahead another date can be set for July? I am happy to travel to Portsmouth (it’s a lot easier in the summer months although busier for parking once the school holidays start) or Winchester.
Hope to see you all soon and hope everyone is coping with treatments and SEs.
Been a bit quiet on here this month, Is anyone free for a meeting?
I could do week beginning 25th - any day
Winchester was mentioned, which is fine for me, what is most convenient for everyone?
just got back in from very soggy dog walk and seen that Carine and Judy not able to come today. Helen ive whatsapped you to see if you still want to go this afternoon as the weather is pretty awful.
Judy I hope you feel better soon.
Love to all X
Going to give it a miss this afternoon I'm afraid, don't fancy the ride to Portsmouth in the rain. If it seems to be stopping I may go along but I may just rest at home for a bit.
So is it the Spinnaker Tower Cafe on 2nd May or do people prefer somewhere else?
hello all thanks for your messages sorry I haven't been in touch this site never notifies me when there are any replies. I may possibly be able to come on the 2nd of May but my daughter usually has Wednesday afternoons off nowso i like to pick her up if i can. I am doing ok thanks the eribulin is not too bad im just very tired also had a quick hospital admission at the beginning of this week had a scan to rule out cord compression. Hope you had a lovely birthday dragoncarine and the others of you ok what with big operations and little babies!! in terms of next time I will be free after the 2nd of June and Mondays and Fridays are good to meet when I have treatment two out of three weeks it is Tuesday and Thursday I'm at the hospital. here's to feeling good and more energy xxx
Sorry I can’t join you this time ladies. I’m doing very well with my recovery and saw the surgeon for a follow up appointment yesterday when he said he was very pleased with my pregress. I go back in 2 weeks for a further follow up and hopefully will be driving soon after. It’s a big op, far bigger than I thought so the fact I feel much more like ‘me’ now is good!
Have a fabulous birthday Julia 🍾🎂🎉 and everyone else enjoy you tea and cake when you meet up in May.
