Morning all - and happy long weekend !!
My friend over at the met office ASSURES me that we will be having lots of lovely sunshine and it will be warming up considerably ....... and about time too!!
My 'sores' are improving and getting worse in equal measure! The main one from the 15 sessions is definitely clearing up and reducing, but now I have new ones springing up in my arm pit from the 5 targeted sessions 😠 Which means I am going to have to go back into the wardrobe to work out what to wear tonight as my original outfit now isn't suitable ... it will only aggrevate the situation 😡 Hopefully another week and I will be sorted 🌞
Off to jetwash the patio now! What could possibly go wrong!! 🚿
Thanks Otter. I think I'm going to go with Shi's solution -- trusty Mrs Button of Balgowlah! Silly, I know -- I used to make clothes myself. But she'll do it so much better in a fraction of the time.
First you would have to unpick the lining the pin up to length required on main fabric see then reattach lining
I could set up a little sideline here ✂✂📍📍
Otter, this is so useful!! 💜💜thank you very much 😘😘 good I told you about my sewing plans , now I know where to turn for help 😘
Regards dress sizes you would need to measure your waist and hips so
10 would be waist 25 in hips 34.5
12 . Waist 26.5 hips 36
14 . ". 28 . " . 38
Hope this helps
Big hugs Carole.
It's such a rollercoaster. I've just drunk a rather stiff gin and tonic with a girlfriend after my day at the hospital. All measured up and tattooed, ready to start a week on Monday. I've got 25 zaps to look forward to. Bit devastated to hear that they want to do my chest wall on both sides, as well as right side armpit but, as you say, belt and braces. We can do this!
As for sewing, I most definitely CANNOT do that. Bravo Anadan, I am impressed. My daughter just threw her school tunic at me and said "I need you to take it up". It's her winter tunic, heavy cloth fully lined and I don't know where to start!
On that note, to bed, with some nice pain killers to calm down my fiery boobs. Hugs to all of you lovely ladies,
Otter, you sound like a sewing expert 💕 I might come back with questions 🙂 one thing I can’t work out is what size pattern do you choose for a dress / blouse when you have no breast 😱😂
Bythesea the thing with curtains is make sure you measure correctly giving plenty for hem and if you are lining it's always better to do a separate lining I find so if you wash the curtains the lining want shrink
Knitting is my evening pastime but never learnt to crochet
Donne a bit of gardening but already too hot out there for me will have to try again this evening when it' cooler
how long is your hair Bythesea? mines not even to a number 2 yet, so no point dyeing it yet.... which is annoying. Also how many weeks is it since you stopped chemo?
My weekend plans consist of a celebratory meal out tomorrow with my man, then gardening and sorting out the garage and then listing all the stuff I have been hoarding on eBay!
I'm very impressed with you needle women, I always start off with the best of intentions, I make a mess of it and throw it away. Knitting is more my thing
Enjoy the sunshine peeps
Morning ladies 🌞🌞🌞🌞😎😎😎😎👒👒👒👒
Let's hope it stays for awhile 😘
Think I might need new contact lens or glasses too 👓👓👓
Anadan you can do it ✂✂✂✂ just remember give yourself plenty of seem allowance and test out stitch tention on a spare piece of material before you start seeing
My machine is over 30 years old and is getting a little tempramental so haven't used for a bit but as I haven't got any shorts that fit you have inspired me to get it out and get making 😘😘😘😘
Carole, sending hugs your way 😘😘😘😘 I can’t advise anything, no experience yet 😜 but try to think you’re doing everything possible to get it done and over with , FOrever 💕
JC, my pre op visit was ok, I’ve been given go ahead, so it’s happening! Next Tuesday.
I’ve challenged myself lately, just to focus on somethig different and useful 😃and want to learn to sew clothes for myself and the girls. I bought some fabric for new pyjama bottoms that I’m going to take to hospital 😜 but I’m too scared to cut it now 😂 I keep telling myself, get these scissors working or you’ll be in trouble 😜😜 I’m not allowed to buy any new pyjama bottoms without trying to make my own first! I’ll do it tomorrow ... 🧐✂️ Promise 👊
Have a good night everyone xx
Carole permission to feel deflated and down iknow I went off on a pity party when I was told I would need chemo as that wasn't in the initial plan but realised that it was to ensure I killed off this little b######
The weeks will fly by the worst bit for me was the shoulder pain which I still have but I did have an existing injury
Hope you are feeling a bit better after your glass of wine
🌧🌧🌧🌧💨💨💨💨 here this morning but 🌞🌞🌞🌞😎😎😎😎👒👒👒👒 I've got about 2 cm and either wear a woolly hat or a selection of sunnats
This afternoon so managed to get out for a walk after I attempted to do some spring cleaning this morning got half the front room done before someone unplugged me 😱😱😱😱
Lesley I have a review with the Radiologist in two weeks then the oncologist in July but get me boob squeezed on September on anniversary of lumpectomy but as still gets painful not looking forward to it
I was sooooo bad went I went to St Lucia - I got into the habit of having a Pimms on the beach around 1030am - a bit of a liquer after breakfast.
Then the hurricane hit and a lot of the staff couldn't make it in ..... so I went on a Pimms run
It was still raining and very windy ... but also very hot ....... had to be done!!!
I too have a very large sun hat, large sunnies and various caps!
We will all be the embodiment of Audrey Hepburn on the Riveria!!
Somebody hand me a cocktail dahling!!!
Bythesea - looking forward to the pics!! Enjoy coffee and after everything you have been thru rads will be dreamy! 🤞
Just been out for my walk and as JC says cold, miserable and windy here - but better weather on the way apparently.
I am due my first review appt in July and expect to have a mammo then ..... is anyone who had a lumpectomy having their mammo/review before me?? I am already beginning to worry about having my swollen, damaged boob squeezed! ☹️
I've spent this morning trying to figure out what I will look like with 2cm of hair growth for my holiday - it didn't end well!
