I very much enjoyed the short trip to Cornwall, Fowey was pretty we did a bit of shopping and visited a gallery there, I was not sure how it would be as most places a fairly isolated and us without a car but all was well we found all cab drivers very accomodating and only marginally dearer than bus fares, its wierd but I suppose we are a bit spoilt with oyster cards in London we don't really think about local travel that much, just do it.
The Eden project was impressive very foggy on the day, which made it look like something from another planet, our diner in the Mediteranean sphere was nice but a bit chilly to be realistic, we had some trouble getting out to the car park at the end of the trip the main building closes at 6 and they do not allow you to walk in the grounds in the dark, so we were meant to have a mini bus to ferry all the diners out but it broke down, so the back up plan was a golf buggy which could only seat 5, which meant a very long wait, our cab gave up and left despite us ringing to say please wait, we managed to get another one in 15 mins though so although completely dark and we could here plenty of wildlife. it was alright, I like a bit of an adventure. We managed to fit in a visit to an owl sanctuary yesterday, which was lovely, impressive birds, I loved watching them fly. We stopped for a quick supper at Paddington Station on our way back, there was no way I was cooking, arrived home about 10.30pm and back to work today.
I hope all the effects of meds and treatment are not getting you all down too much, thinking of you all Cassie
I was up an hour earlier than intended too, its really difficult to break a sleeping cycle, never mind we will have an extra hour to get ready for our trip and to reach Paddington Station, I really cannot run with a suitcase these days, even a wheeley one.
We have booked tickets for the Eden project, we will be having diner there, my lovely daughter has arranged everything, train tickets & hotel booking, so hopefully I can just sit back and relax, we are due back late Tuesday eve ready for work on Weds.
I agee with the comments the Versialles Palace is well worth a trip, I have not been for 25 years, but remember it is very stunning and the gardens are exquisite, I think another trip is due.
I hope the weather is not too wet while we are away in St Austell X Cassie
Wow everyone seems to be super busy this weekend !
Rosie hope your family arrive safely and you have a great week.
Tlj your Paris trip sounds fab I went there many many years ago I think its one of those places that exceeds your expectations the atmosphere is wonderful and the sightseeing so exciting. I felt the same when I went to Venice .
I would agree Versailles is a must see if you can manage it though it really needs at least a full day to do it justice. A good excuse to return there soon perhaps !
Lovewine where did all that energy come from ? I had my first "stand alone" herceptin yesterday, of course they managed to make the prescription out for the wrong hospital and then had to bring it over in a taxi so my appointment was put back an hour but at least I got it. I also got a huge bruise on my thigh at the injection site which I havent had the last 2 times. Can't say I've noticed any side effects so far hopefully it stays that way as I have to have next one the day we go on holiday.
My collies also live in hope whenever there's biscuits etc around though they tend to target OH more when he's around they obviously see him as a softer target !
I have one horse as well as the two donks, am looking forward to starting riding again now I am feeling so much better, at last my mouth seems to be improving and energy levels rising.
I cold capped and have quite a lot of hair though its quite thin on top and feels very straw like. I have coloured it twice since starting chemo in June, used Holland and Barratts vegetable based colur which has been fine . I have noticed my eyelashes are starting to grow back though my right eyebrow seems to be drifting away.
Went to dentist this week for checkup apparently my teeth and gums have come through unscathed which is a relief. Decided to have my teeth whitened just hoping by christmas will have eyelashes white teeth and my hair thickening up.
Wildpurl I think your food sounds amazing even though I dont eat meat I shoved a shop bought pizza in the oven tonight, makes me feel quite inadequate I keep telling myself one day I will make more of an effort but I'm not holding my breath.
Hope everyone on holiday has a good time and those having treatments this week are ok.
Must try and get some sleep.
