Thank you Shi, that's a lovely thing to say xx I'm ok thanks, I think steady progress is the correct terminology! I don't feel as if I've got the same amount of stamina that I had before I started chemo yet, but when I look back just a couple of months I can see I'm improving. Had my first lesson observation yesterday since going back to work! xx
Thanks Shi, I've found them I don't know what the bell means though?! It looked like I'd hugged 90+ people and I don't remember doing that! I only worked out how to give one a few weeks ago!
You're always helping other people xx but how are you? xx
Hi Chaffinch, I hope you're doing well. That picture of us all brings back some happy memories Wish I'd thought about sitting elegantly like the others in the front row are though! :/ xx
Does anyone know how to find pm's on this new format?! I can't find mine! Can't say I'm keen on it! Went to look at Chaffinch's comment on our thread and I found I was on page 364! xx
Hi shi yes had snow today Ella was mesmerized by it had a little toddle in it haha I forgot to say she is walking just but toddling around so eyes in back of head!!! Amazing pictures you all look amazing I've figured out meesh and karana I think but I've been guessing whos who haha trying to match person with to pic if that makes sense absolutely fabulous darlings!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Meesh, the course was ok thanks, it was about reading and it was interesting, but the young teachers made me feel old! xx
Hi cherry B, good to hear you kept most of your hair and that you're doing well. I managed to keep a fair amount of hair too, although was sporting a bit of a friar tuck look by the end 😂 But nothing could make me wear my wig (Shirley). Did you ever go and collect that wig? 😂 I had cut my hair short prior to treatment and it grew back and blended in really quickly so no ken Dodd look for me 😊I just look like I have a 🎤 head! 😱
Jencat, hope your course went ok! Buddyfan, hope you're doing ok and that your arm is healing.
Shi, hope you've had a good weekend 😊
Hi Shi, Happy New Year! Can't remember if I've already wished you it, but it won't hurt to wish you it again! I hope it's a healthy and happy one for you x
Work is going ok thanks and I'm enjoying it, my class are lovely. I still tire easily, but my stamina is gradually improving-I can now work a whole day and do something afterwards! I've been on a course this morning and was told yesterday that I'm being observed teaching in a couple of weeks time,so back to normality! (I escaped it last term!) I panicked a bit at first, but then thought if I can survive chemo,what's an hour of being watched! (A bit of a dramatic comparison I know!) How are you and all the gang? I miss them all not being on here! Say hello from me! xx
Happy new year everyone! I've given up making New Years resolutions as I never stick to them 🙄 Buddyfan, hope that arm is better soon. What a difference a year makes, I was just happy to be able to celebrate and see the new year in. What has everyone else got planned for this year?
Thank you Mishy for your lovely post x (I've also sent you a hug, I've just learnt to do them! A new year and a new skill already! ) xx
Slightly depressing thought, in a couple of minutes time I won't be able to say that I'm 60 next year anymore! xx
Thank you so much for your kind words buddyfan and so sorry to hear about your fall. I hope your arm is feeling much better now x
Wishing all of you a happy and healthy 2019 xx
Hello everyone! Hope you all had good xmases. I enjoyed my soft cheese, just because I could eat it this year 😂 Buddyfan sorry to hear about your arm, how annoying but it's good to hear you're doing ok apart from that.
Mishy/ Shi, I can only imagine how you feel about your curly hair. You have to forget everything you know about your old hair and start again. It took me years to learn to accept mine and work out what to do with it and I was born with it 😂🤣😂 It's funny as people always say to me "oooh you're so lucky to have curly hair, I'd love mine to be curly". What people don't realise is that curly hair never looks tidy, there's always at least one bit that's not doing what you want it to, you just have to embrace that as tomorrow it'll be a different bit 😂 The good thing though is that it has plenty of body 😂🤣😂 here's something that I thought you might like, you might have to copy and paste the link as I'm not very good at technology!
