Sam, I think Buddyfan is right. I hope that you get good news, we're all here for you no matter what that news is!
Dermatology appointment was quick, they had a look and said it is still a tiny bit fkakey and to use the lotion and shampoo they gave me previously but I don't need to wash my hair every day 😂 I think it seems to be clearing up on its own so I might see if it does, if not I'll go back to using the stuff they gave me.
Morning ladies! Our 🚂 has been cancelled due to snow, so all rads ladies will need to climb aboard the replacement sledges that 🚂👩✈️has put on for us! It's quite crowded now with Runnerbean, Karen, Shi, Chaffinch, Rach and Sue as there's quite a few of us! Hope everyone gets to appts safely.
Ali, Sam, Cassie, Jencat hope your recoveries from ops and chemo are going well and you can stay inside in the warm.
Jellytot, Ruth and Buddyfan hope you're doing ok and can stay in the warm too!
Hi Buddyfan, I've just picked up a leaflet from my radiotherapy centre for free cancer and rehabilitation exercise sessions. I think they're twice a week at a fairly local gym, and they offer swimming too. I may check it out. My friend loaned me a fit bit so need to show some exercise is being done! Does your hospital offer anything exercise wise perhaps? When you're ready, maybe they'll accept partners too..?
Had my first of 22 rads treatments this morning..it was very easy, just lie there exposed to all who ventures in..but nothing can be done, gotta get through it...
Hope rads goes well for those of you who are beginning them today and for those of you who have already started xx
Morning ladies...up and about nice and early this morning ready for another week at the electric beach 😎😎😎
its blooming feeezing...we had a dusting of snow in the night but nothing to cause chaos on the roads hopefully! Had an eventful evening...the fire alarm kept going off so I was constantly turning it off and resetting it (OH is technophobe so can’t do it!) in the end we’ve had to disconnect it 😱 don’t think the sensor liked having the tidal wave flood it yesterday!
OH slept in spare bed last night...think I may have given him a few home truths but can’t remember what I said (chemo brain) I remember saying I didn’t think he was very supportive and he didn’t like that 😱😱 will see what mood he’s in when I get back from rads!
Hope you all have a fab day 😘😘😘
I just bought some minty lamb chops from the butcher so we've got those. It'll be our last dinner cooked in the oven for a while.
Karen, 🐐is very similar to lamb just a stronger flavour so actually quite nice. When I mentioned to my friend I could cook her 🐐 curry she was horrified and said she doesn't even eat lamb. 🙊 wish she'd told me as I have cooked her moussaka a couple of times which is lamb 🤦🏻♀️
Morning ladies! 😂🤣😂🤣😂Shi, good to see you're as 😜😝😜as ever. Yes lots of ladies joining us in 😎😎😎🥓🥓🥓lounge next week. Shi, it certainly makes you move quick when you need to think about answering the door and covering your boob at the same time at least I didn't have to think about covering my head too. Perhaps you should have grabbed a bed sheet and slung it over you head and pretended you thought they were overdue trick or treaters 👻👻👻Were the suspicious men the burglars?
Karen, I hope you feel better today. I would be tempted to bleach those boys too 😂Hope you're feeling better today. The weather here is lovely and ☀️ 😎 but soooo cold 😨
Hope everyone has something nice planned and Jencat hope those SEs are not causing you too much trouble. 😘
I have Shi but there idea of cleaning isn’t the same as mine!!
Before we go back I will give it a thorough bleach to get it back to squeaky clean!!! I may bleach them too 😂
Im ok...still a bit fed up but hoping that’ll pass 😘😘😘
Chaffinch, I've never had a new kitchen before. I painted doors at my old house and replaced the work tops but have never had a completely brand new one. So it's a real treat for me, I'm usually a make do and mend kind of girl. Hope you enjoy that 🍷I love a good goat curry😋 can I come for tea? I've already lost interest in preparing food now everything has been boxed up!
Morning ladies! I'm certainly finding it harder to get going in the morning. I don't feel tired I just lack motivation, I'm hoping it's the rads and not tamoxifen as I can't be having lie ins every day especially if I want to start cycling to work again after rads!
Just had a disastrous breakfast of crumpets and smoothie. The smoothie was fine but how can you get crumpets wrong? I'll tell you. The crumpets were frozen so put them in the toaster defrost setting, then I like to do them a bit longer which I did. They felt hot so I slathered my PB and marmite combo on took a bite and they were freezing cold. OH had turned the setting down to 1 😮So he told me to put them under the grill and I ended up with burnt marmite on the top 😔
Final kitchen cupboard clearing for me today as the fitters come on Monday. I feel like I've been talking about this for ages! But first I need a shower and boob time!
Whoop whoop Jencat...well done on getting thru last chemo...hope ur not feeling too bad this morning!!
Karebear...side effects of rads are easy compared to chemo...just a bit of tiredness but gonna up my intake of water to see if that helps...the odd twinge in boob and heavy feeling and a bit of pinkness but nothing to worry about!!
Its bright and sunny here today although chilly...going out shopping with a friend at lunchtime as she’s going on safari and needs some beige clothes so she does t get eaten by lions 🦁 funny thing is I’ve done her fingers and toes nails bright orange so not sure how that works 😂
Hope everyone has a lovely Saturday
