Well I've finally managed to find my way around this new forum and hopefully this post will appear in the place intended. Haven't been on for a while and have been trying to catch up with any news. Love the hair Maire in the new profile picture. Judging from what I've read most Crackers are still having rubbish days intermingled with the good ones. On the whole I'm basically back to normal but if I get carried away with an energy surge and overdo things then suddenly fatigue hits back and almost knocks my legs from under me. Usually lasts about 36 hours and then I'm ok again. Competed in a dog obedience show on Sunday. Weather was gorgeous, company was great and my dogs worked well for me. Sat in the bath that night and suddenly realised that BC hadn't entered my mind once that day. It was a good feeling. Just about to go into September and niggling at the back of my mind is the fact that end October/early November will be mammogram time and I'm dreading it. Not the procedure but the result, but I suppose this is going to be how it is for all of us for all time now. Depressing thought.
Has anybody heard from Cybele? I can't believe she's been so quiet. Anyway ladies those that are meeting up - have a lovely day and enjoy. Hope everyone is gradually getting back to a new normal.
Well here I am in all my dyed ginger glory! That pic was from last month so a few more millimetres growth since then!

Love to all
Thanks for moving Mandy over.
And hello to Mz, nice to see you again, not many of us left now it seems. Always good to hear an update, xxx
Mandy - you have started your own thread! So sorry you can't come, but I understand.
Energy is definitly a problem. I am having my mammo in the morning, so have no idea how I will stay awake, but I am looking forward to seeing the Crackers that can come.
Moderator - I only saw this by accident - please move it into our December thread, so that the others can see it - thanks
Thought after getting the emails about the new site I would catch up after months.
Have a lovely evening when you meet , I look forward to posts and pictures.
Glad everyone seems so positive. I am still on the 3 weekly herceptin routine till Jan 2013, but its quick and no real side effects.
Best wishes MZ
I'm still a bus....but I've bookmarked this thread.
Feeling extremely rough today after a few glases of vino at the Horseshoe Bar in Glasgow last night so will leave the updating of profile photo until my brain works.
What have you done Maire? You still look like a pink bus. That doesn't sound very nice when I read it back. Oh well, I feel like a bus myself. Have put on half a stone in one month and I still have another month before I even see the thyroid specialist.
I can't seem to put a smiley face in the message. A smiley face would make me calling you a bus seem OK, xxx
You can also bookmark this thread by choosing thread options (just above the top of the thread) and selecting bookmark. Then it will appear at the top right of your screen and you can short cut straight to it without all the extra steps they have put in to "improve" the forum.
Next week I think we are a select bunch of between 4 and 6 of us. I have the mobile numbers of everybody (oh, the power). I am meeting QD off the train, so we will be there first, so anyone can join us at any time that they can make it. Any crackers who may have logged back in due to the forum shaningens and want to join in are very welcome. It's never too late to join in. It's not as if I have actually organised anything.
Really looking forward to it, xxxx
Click on "my profile" (over there, top right) then "avatars" then "upload avatar" then browse your own computer for the pic you want, then go through a couple more random steps to alter the size of how it appears, then go back and do it all again cos it went wrong, do this a couple of times, then give up and save whatever version you have managed to upload. Then have a cup of tea, wondering if it is all worth it.
hows everyone? looking forward to thurs. picked up my tickets yesterday. fingers crossed for you Cress!
Hope you're all well and that you enjoy your party.
Cressida-hope the mammogram goes well.
I'm back to work after the holidays and feeling fine though every single physical twinge freaks me out.
White blood count still abnormal but only a little. They keep taking blood so feel a wee bit like a vodoo doll!
not sure if i am posting right , but as i said before i am looking forward to next week, do you know who is coming and where we are meeting yet.
