I've looked in through your front window a few times, it seems only polite to knock on the door and say hi. Though maybe knocking and scarpering would be more appropriate...
Claire, I saw on the November rads thread you were talking about your boob being manhandled at the beginning, now I'm worried, didn't realise any of that is involved. Day 1for me is Wednesday... hallelujah.
(Thank heaven for predictive texting for once, I was wondering how to spell that.)
Congrats for finishing today, you must be in my corner of the country if you use the 303.
Oh Janey, how frigthening for you, let's hope it's just a little glitch in the recovery process and a one off.
Bell rung and knockers knocked for you Clair. Enjoy your takeaway and wine and meal tomorrow. It's a big deal when it's done and dusted.
Head still thumping. Looks like the amitripyline aren't going to work, I had such high hopes for them. Looked st cranial massage Clair. Osteopath for headaches is all that came up locally. Might give if a go in the new year, thing is all these things cost so much.
On Monday I'm going to the German Christmas market in Birmingham. I'm determined to get there this year even if I'm spaced out on painkillers. I paid to go last year and went down with the flu and couldn't go.
Hope to be walking tomorrow, again, even dosed up with painkillers. I need to get some fresh air and exercise.
Oh my goodness, how totally terrifying! have they stopped any meds?
Glad to hear things are 'back under control', hopefully, and yes, it's not a place for a proxy ;o)
Sent her a pm. Probably nothing.....shes got cmputer problems or gone away.
Yep, Carol wins. It's lovely and sunny here but nippy. Watched Mary Berry on the BBC news last light turning on the lights in Marlow, there were snow flakes whirling round in the air. That's only a couple of miles from here. I peeped out of the window to make sure it wasn't snowing here, Not a flake in sight.
Good luck this pm Clair, bells and knockers at the ready. Getting worried about our Janey now, Not like her to go on the missing list. Hopefully she's busy doing nice things, if so she will have to do her punishment, whatever we decide, and put proof on here that's she's done it. I'm thinking 30 pressups instead of lines, that will teach her xx
Carol, has narrowly avoided disciplinary action lol minus 9 you say, poo, that's nothing here in the south this am it was ....err.....plus Four degrees. Ok, you win, easily, that is darned cold.
Getting a wee bit concerned about Janey, I will look back, but sure she was due away at around this time. Not sure about detention or lines Lesley, they will be doing it remotely and I don't trust them to do it . X
GOOD morning - Hope everyone is hale & hearty this -9 degrees and freezing fog morning 🙋....... in Bonnie Scotland anyhow.
Claire - all the best for this afternoon - will be thinking about you & have my knockers at the ready 😂
Delly - Edith was asking when would you be wanting her for the close up shots? She's cleared her very busy schedule in readiness and is really looking forward to it.
Happy Friday everyone
Are we giving out lines or detention for the AWOLs? Magical Moon often disappears for long periods, I think she goes off spreading her magic all over but not like Janey to go missing, hope she hasn't flipped because the house rules have been broken and she's been put under restraint. Expect Rubycat is off on one of her Mindlessness courses or observing a silence period.
Hold on, Janey hasnt been here since 22nd ?!?! WHAT ON EARTH lol SO, is this her time away, that she booked with us officially?
Yoo hoo Chickadees,
Last one ey Clair, well done YOU, and you've not complained either (well not on this thread anyway lol) and so maybe youve done ok with it all ? Its an odd feeling when you finish, relief, but 'ok what now' takes over a bit.
Why do we do it ey Lesley, I have a tip about the dilemma, but I simply CAN NOT share it on this thread. lol
So, missing Rubycat, Janey (Delly was here yesterday), no magical moon for AGES, Lorac....anyone else? If anyone is reading this, feel free to come on over and chat. 🐵
Don't make me laugh, my head hurts too much! Yes Charys, walked John Wayne style supporting épilation into the kitchen for scissors.
Delly, I'll ring my bell for Clair as I did for Janey, then I'll knock my knockers too.
The super strong painkillers haven't helped today so just waiting for a safe gap before taking the strong guns migraine jollop prescribed by neurologist. The husband has just said playing on that @@@@ing iPad doesent help your head you know. He doesent understand, Im not playing, I just need my fix of my lovely ladies, Im addicted to you all xx
Delly, my dear, I'm only googling LOL They say that a thick damp towel might work better, but that s silly as then your towel is covered in wax LOL I've not done Batik since the same age Delly-pops, hence why I almost forgot about it.
Lesley, I've done the same and more than once !!!!!!!!!!!!! It is THE most excrutiating thing and boy does it make you panic, you don't know what to do and sit there in agony wondering the best course of action. Have you hobbled over the room for scissors? LOL This is getting a bit base now.
Ok - I'm gonna try using kitchen towel to iron over and hope it absorbs wax. Worth a try. Charys, your a mine of info with your info links - thanks darlin. x
Lesley - I'm somewhat disturbed at you saying to Clair, you'll "ring" the door bell for her finished rads treatment, when you know full well, all else are knocking their "knockers" !!
Charys - Ooo Ooo Ooooo - Batik!! Corr, know all about THAT from my six form A level art days. I'm impressed. Didn't ever get into it myself, but my bezzie did some beautiful ones. Other than that, our 6th form art room days were like todays "Loose Women", discussing boyfriends and the importances/meaning of life etc., whilst splashing a bit of paint around.
Waxing - the secret is to rip it off quick. Wax on carpet, however, needs a faaar more subtle approach. It's been there a while, so doubt freezing will make much difference, and yes, I've tried to pick off the worst. Carpet is a biege colour and some of the wax is green!! splodge of 3" by 1, and the odd smaller white wax splodges (nice word don't ya think S P L O D G E!!).
BTW - do people get paid to write a blog? I need to find a way to earn an income. Can't be doing it for free !
Still laughing about the jump leads. So desperate I think I'd let you have a go with them Delly. Also Charys you made me chuckle re the bikini wax, reminded me of years ago when my sister tried a DIY bikini wax and got in such a mess, her husband came from work and found her in tears armed with manicure scissors trying to unglue herself. i once got an epilady mangled there trying to do a trim. The things we do in the name of beauty! Still, gives us something to chuckle over though never funny at the time.
Good luck with the wax on the carpet. Years ago I tried the paper and iron, freeze and pick methods, neither were 100% but got most out.
will be ringing my door bell for you on Friday Clair, make sure you let us know when it's done xx
Hey - No. I missed your praises whilst posting cos it takes me soooo long to type ANYthing. Awww shucks, are you saying it was directed towards me? L'il Dellypoos?? If Yes - you're too kind girlies.
But where on earth do you get brown paper bags in this day and age? And yes Charys, candle as oppo hair removing wax. Don't need that - use my teeth! And yes, I am double jointed!! Heehaw haha.
Think I'm a few postings behind - so you'll have to have a bit o' patience
Thinking about it now, that's how I used to get the wax out of batiks I made.
Are you avoiding commenting on the lovely praise heaped on you below? Bashful? lol
Ok, Firstly candle wax or doing your bikini line LOLOL? I'm going to go for freezing it and picking it off. I'll find you a link my friend....there are two suggestions on it....but I've not tried either....maybe the other 'women of the world' here have ?
Forgot to ask - on a completely different tangeant, you all being knowledgable women of the world. How do I get spilt wax out of my carpet? I understand ironing over some form of paper helps soak it up, but what kind/type of paper do you use - newspaper? or summat else. It's obviously got to absorb the wax.
Prize offered to the correct solution !!
Awwww Lesley - i do so wish I could do somethin for your flippin awful headaches. Before I got my head and arm stuck down the pink loo on the tip yesterday, I found a pair of "jump leads". Put them in my plastic bag, wondering and thinking, if I connected the two ends to either side of your temples and the other to my car battery, the quick sharp shock might sort your headaches out. But I decided that was in very bad taste to even think it, let alone say or suggest it, so connected them up to myself instead. I ended up with my hair in a cork screw frizz, with a not so lovely smell of singeing. Don't think it's gonna work Lesley - sorry. Back to the drawing board. I'll keep working on a solution though.
Seriously tho', I can't and don't understand why the cause can't be found, in this day and age with all the scans and all sorts of other test availables. I mean, often severe headaches can be linked to high blood pressure and other more nasty causes. I can't imagine what it must be like for you, day in day out.
Def Charys, you said before she should think about writing professionally, she's certainly more entertaining than some of the columnists I read in the Sunday mags that come with the papers.
I KNOW!! I wish she could be employed here to write a blog.....just about life.....it would so cheer people up. 😄
Good evening all,
Just a quick post to say hello to you all. Been a lousy headache day. However, peeped in last night before heading off to bed and I really laughed out LOUD at your post Delly, you really should have your own weekly column in a mag, honestly, so funny, plus so sweet you giving the old chap a lift under your umbrella Ella Ella. Also laughed at your reaction to your husband's comments Clair about never mind if they've done it right, let's just get out of here. Can so relate to that!
Hope you're all ok and having a good day/evening xx
Delly, its the conversation a couple of days ago (as discussed on this thread) where Ruby alerted us to her new thread entitled something like.......'consequences of mild neutropenia' and I was saying I didn't know 'owt about neutropenia.
Afternoon all, don't have time right now to read back over the last 24 hours, but hoping all are well. (Those having pokey needles and those that aren't.) Clair, a few times my rt was so quick it was astonishing, then other times they just couldn't quite get the position right and it took 30 mins once lol
Yes, have been out at the tip again today. Found a lovely shade of pink loo. Yeh, pink gnashers. Saw what looked like a gold coin at the bottom of it, reached in, but got my head and arm stuck in the process.Luckily, some refuse collecting officers found me and covered me in Swarfega to free me. It's taking a while for my head to go back to normal, still a bit 'U' bend shaped.
Lesley - that's great news on the alien arm spot. Is it some sort of Solar related hyperkeratotic lesion/mole
Janey- you look juicyliciously abfably gorgeous, woman.What do you mean, your daughters boyfriend is Mains???Yes, I was a Jackie reader, educational wasn't it. No wonder you nad I are so intelligent Juicy - cept I can't spell "and"!
Clair - we're all gonna be dusting off our knockers for your final rad appmnt. Could this be a possible sequel to the Calendar Girls (another fab film), The Knocker Girls ? Moisturising 4 x a day? Are you another "Udder cream girl" too?
Dr Charys - what? You diagnosed some kind of "worm" living in or on you husbands foot?? Ooooomph Yuk. That'd give me nightmares, especially if I'm having to sleep next to it. Only sooo much I'm prepared to do for love. What's this other thread, you and Ruby are talking about? See how I hate to be left out.
Took my car in yesterday for MOT and pre Winter service. The recommended garage I've used since being here also services/fixes, wait for it, Aston Martins, but also bog standards such as mine. And no, they're not outrageously priced as you'd expect, no more expensive for repairs than anywhere else. Is just round the corner 10 mins walk for when you've dropped off and have to get back, so very convenient. But, he's recently expanded, so now has a seperate bog standard car garage, which is a good 1/2 hour brisk walk. Well, what a flippin wicked day yesterday was to go out into - blowin a hooley here and torrents of rain, flash floods. Had the sense to take my heavy duty umbrella and set off to walk back. Kept passing litter bins with crumpled up wrecked umbrellas and thought, well now I'm out in it, I may as well stay out longer and detour into town to pick up a few necessities such as food. Was approached by an elderly gentleman, asking "Is this Mill St, and do you know where the hearing aid shop is. It's supposed to be No 46"? Err No. I resisted the temptation to say Pardon. Told him it would be up at the top of the hill with that number. Would he like to hitch a ride with me under my umbrella (ella ella). Well only if I was going that way, he said, which I wasn't, but it was no skin off my nose. Awww, he linked his arm through mine, and helped keep my umbrella anchored down from the gusts. As we toiled up the hill against the elements. we had a very cheeky chatty conversation. When we reached his destination, he turned and thanked me, and gave me a great big kiss. How lovely, made me go all wet eyed - bless. So a very sunny thing to happen in such a grey, miserable day.
Loadsa love Dellypoos xxx
Loved that Janey, think we can all relate to it. So glad you enjoyed your pampering. Ha, poor OH, bet he was on high alert waiting to gush with the compliments. They do get a rough deal something with our raging hormones dont they? But then I think after years of "good service" we've earned a bit of patience. Good for you with the house rules, just make sure you don't let them slip. Glad the needles are working. Funny you've got your food craving under control. I needed to put on a bit of weight and had no appetite. Now I can't stop eating and put on what I needed but have now got a pop belly and dont like it. Think I'll have to go on a diet for the first time in years if I don't stop eating so much.
Know what you mean about being in control of your life again Clair. This horrible thing seems to take over your life and you just get pushed along, poked and prodded, very difficult when you're used to being in control. I would say though with regards to work, if they are being good about time off just take it and make the most of it. You'll probably find that after youve finished rads it will catch up with you, I know it did me. First few days I just felt relief it was over then went downhill over the next couple of weeks, took me then several weeks to start picking up. But then I'm an old girl.
Delly's gone quiet. Bet she's out rummaging through skips looking for old sinks and toilets to make more teeth.
just been looking at a Nordic Walking course. Was recommended by physio last year for my shoulder problem. Might give it a go in the new year. Already got the poles, used them to get me up Snowdon 4 years ago.
Well clearly I look like a supermodel - well only in my dreams! Other half so worried he'd be in trouble for not noticing that he told me make up looked good as he walked through the door - I was in the other room! I always feel like I'm in drag when I wear make up. However, it was such a lovely lovely couple of hours and a real boost. Would urge any of you to book in, if there is a session near you. There is also a lovely goody bag to bring home and which I think I will have to hide from the girls!
I had a sudden flashback to my teens. I'm not sure if any of you were Jackie readers but I won the star letter once and chose the Boots No. 17 Make up Kit. I suddenly feel 13 again. There was a bottle of Anais Anais in the goody bag too, so definitely a nostalgic smell.
Acupuncture a success for me again today and I completely spaced out. The therapist says auricular the one that works, I appear to have lost my food addiction too!
As I'm on the laptop rather than the phone, I can post a picture I spotted on t'internet earlier - it made I laugh...
Glad you have had some benefit from acupuncture Lesley, but wish you were in my Tuesday group here.
Well, just how glam are you Jsney? Hope you enjoyed the pampering. Had my acupuncture this morning. We Have decided thsts it's not working with the flushes and headaches but I def felt improvement in shoulders and arms for a couple if days after last session. This time I put my jacket on after with ease and as usual felt really relaxed after, still do actually, if only the feeling lasted.
Started off wet and miserable here but turned into a lovely sunny day. Hope everyone is having a good day and that today's rad session went ok Clair xx
Defo hand over the reins Janey - & on the giving lessons front, dearest hubby just ruffled my hair saying 'my grandma used to use a pudding basin on my dad' - he's in detention now. xxx
I see Delly is AWOL again! Leaving a gaping Delly shaped hole in the forum.
Probably tied up with legal things, been taken to court by disgruntled dental patients.
Ha you funny lot. Rightho, an odd keratosis thing........there are loadsa those.....there a huge number of double AND triple barrelled names. Look, I need it to be know I am not a hypochondriac. lol REALLY. I've only been to the doctor once in a decade and that was for the BC thing.
Rubycat, yeah, but you don't know if I'm right do you.....LOLOLOL.....just layman's guesses . However, I did manage to 'diagnose' an odd tropical worm in my BIL's foot once that the doctor hadn't a clue about. Ewwwww.
So glad you're pleased with your hair Janey, nothing like a bit of pampering. Good luck with the rads Clair, near the finishing post then you can rest up and hopefully be able to enjoy your Christmas. How's the skin holding up?
Dr Charys, just googled it, I know it's some kind of keratosis but not sure which type?.... frightened myself reading the info so stopped, none of the names rang a bell except the keratosis bit. I just know I've got to keep an eye on it. It's flipping itchy though.
Enjoy your needles tomorrow Janey. I've got my penultimate session in the morning. Unfortunately not helping at all with the flushes but last time she put needles in my shoulders and i did get less pain the following few days.
Heard from my sister over the weekend that she's going to spend Christmas with her son who lives in Florida this year instead of coming to me as usual. Can't understand why anyone would prefer to go to Florida than Bucks can you? Lol. So it will just be the two of us. I used to love Christmas but over the years the family has shrunk and now I find it a sad time. Never mind, I'll just stock up with lots of goodies and watch things like It's a Wonderful Life and The Wizard of Oz for a couple of days. Plenty of social events to look forward to on the run up to it so will be nice to have a rest. Expect your house will be bursting at the seams Janey.
Talking of hair Janey, was washing my ever thinning locks last night, when I got fed up thinking how much I hate sitting at the hairdressers, so got my sharpest scissors out and hacked off about 3 inches - have a bob so didn't seem that difficult. Waited for hubby to come in to see if he noticed, hooray he did and said appropriately nice things. Bless, I'm sure that wasn't a smirk I saw... Still looked ok this morning, saved myself so much money need to go and buy a new outfit.xxx
Dusting off my knocker ready for you Clair. Hope you enjoy the Looking good course Janey, will be so much more fun than my Mindlessness one! xxx
Thanks all xx. Charys, I should have written it down, I really can't remember what he called it, I was just so relieved as soon as he said it was benign I felt like a weight had been lifted off me and couldn't have cared less what it was called but really should know I suppose. Maybe I'll google it, I think I'd recognise it I I sW it, if I do I'll let you know xx
Thank goodness Lesley, could hear your sigh of relief over here. Think we all get our knickers in a twist with any other health issues we have now, difficult to take anything other than seriously isn't it? Thought I'd been walking better today, as hip not so painful, until someone asked why I was limping!! Arrgh.
Charys, you are better than my doctor,and I like her a lot! I've replied on t'other thread just to make myself feel important. xxx
oooooo try and find out what your 'double barrelled' is Lesley, I like finding out about new medical things.....I'm a frustrated 'wish I'd been a doctor' person. PHEW....that's good ey ...and breathe.....
