Im not sure if the Southampton meet up is happening but unfortunately I can’t make any date this week due to some other commitments that have come up. Hopefully it does take place.
I’m going to suggest a few dates in Feb though to get the ball rolling with that, and meeting up again in Portsmouth as it’s easiest for most of you as you all live near there.
I am free next week except for Monday (5-7th) and all of the following week (11-14th) plus possibly a couple of days the week after (18-20th). Maybe you can all say what day/s are best for you so we can sort a date when the majority of us can meet. I haven’t included Fridays for me as I do find the traffic too busy driving home, whatever time I leave! And there will be days in the weeks I’ve mentioned that I will become busy on, but so far haven’t committed to anything else just yet.
Anyone with secondary BC is welcome to join us it’s not restricted to Hampshire but as we all started off meeting more centrally in Winchester we called the thread what it is. We generally meet at 1.30 in the cafe at the base of the Spinnaker Tower if we are in Portsmouth but don’t have a set place if we meet up in other towns.
Lets see if we can get something organised 😊☕️🍰
I’m sorry I’m going to pass on the meet up in Southampton on 28th as it’s not so great to get to. Hope your wobbles have eased Dragoncarine.
I look forward to our February meet up.
love to you all
I was about to post on here with some suggestions of dates and then realised that there’s been plenty of activity since I last read the thread when Judy replied to seza last week.
Unfortunately I can’t do 21st or 28th either Winchester or Portsmouth. I could probably get to either on one of the other days mentioned 29, 30 or 31 but not sure at this stage which ones I would be free on as I’m still popping in on a regular basis to my Mum (my Dad died unexpectedly in October which is why I couldn’t make the last meet up)
If not I am relatively free (give or take days for treatment, visiting Mum and baby sitting my grandson!) so would hopefully be able to meet up in February.
As an update from me I’m still on fulvestrant (and Denosumab) so my treatment is pretty easy in comparison to what I have been on over the past 3-4 years, something I didn’t think I’d ever be able to say again. My latest scan results were all stable although one very small lymph node had grown a millimetre or two. My liver is still NED (no evidence of disease) since my resection last April which is the best news to start the New Year with.
Hipe to catch up with you all soon but it will have to be 29th or later, or February now.
Hello everyone, welcome Seza sorry you’ve found yourself on here but this little meet up group is lovely and hopefully you will find it very helpful too. We usually meet in Gunwharf at the Spinnaker Tower cafe but I think next time it will be in Winchester. I hope you can make it it would be lovely to meet you.
Hopefully the other ladies will be along shortly but these are the dates this month I’m free; Monday 21st, bit short notice though I know, then 28th, 29th, 31st January.
Love to all, look forward to our catch up.
Sorry I can't meet up next week. We are away for the weekend celebrating our eldest daughters 30th birthday - in Disneyland Paris of all places! However she wanted it and our grandson who's now 15 months will love it! We're not back until next week and I have a few things to catch up on during the rest of the week, including babysitting, so can't make any other day. Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and hope treatments are continuing to work well for you and side effects are minimal, especially Helen with the neuropathy SE.
I’m sorry I can’t make 12th. I know everyone is very busy but on the off chance anyone is free I could do 13th or 14th. If not then I’ll see you all in the New Year. Hope everyone is doing well and treatments running smoothly.
Love to all
Morning all, looking forward to seeing you this afternoon, it’s another beautiful day on the sunny south coast ☀️. Hope to see you Judy but if not we’ll see you next time.
Ive just returned from holiday and have been checking the dates put up by Helen. I should be able to make 10th October but will know a bit nearer the time so I’ll check in on here a bit closer to the day.
Hope everyone is doing well on their treatments and good luck for anyone getting results.
hope you are all well. I can make 10th October for a meet up. I can’t do the 3rd as I have giant grand-puppy staying then for a couple of days and I don’t want to leave him in case he eats the house 🏠🐶
love to all x
I hope you have all been able to enjoy our long, and sometimes very hot, summer. Sorry to hear you are feeling a bit lonely DC, it is a lonely old world out there for us secondary ladies. As to dates I can’t do 26th as we are away but can do the other dates. If most of you can do 26th please go for that rather than wait for all of us to agree on another date later on?
Good luck to everyone waiting for scan results (Helen and Judy), I’m also having a scan in a weeks time and then getting the results once I get back from holiday, I’m sure they will be available just before we go but I’d rather wait until after!
would love to catch up. been feeling a little lonely recently. Can't do 5th or 12th September as I have doctors on 5th and dog training on 12th (yes we got ourselves a dog).
I’m so sorry i can’t make today. I hope you have a lovely afternoon and hopefully I’ll catch up with you next time. Hope you are all doing well and having a lovely summer.
Love to all
Sorry ladies, is it possible to do 24th instead? I know I was the one that said 23rd (Monday) but I've now got something on that I need to do for my daughter so can't make that afternoon due to the long drive home. Hope this gets read and everyone knows which date it is. Maybe we can all confirm? I won't travel all the way down to Portsmouth if it's a date that a group of us can't make - apologies Judy !!
As most of us have replied with the dates we can do shall we opt for next Monday ,23rd? I realise DC can't make it but we havent yet come up with any dates later in the month or August so hopefully we can find a date for next time that you can make DC. The rest of us seem to be able to make 23rd and it may be slightly quieter if some of the schools are still in term time (although i'm not sure how many as I've looked at the termtime calendar for Hants). In any case I hope the Mums and kids havent got bored by then so don't all head off to Gunwharf!
If anyone, other than DC, can't make 23rd can they post and we could change it to 24th as everyone seems to be able to make the Tuesday as well (I've only suggested the Monday to get a date fixed)
Have a good rest of the week and hopefully catch up with as many of you who can make it next week.
Hello all, glad to hear everyone’s doing well. Just back from France and it was very hot but we had a pool to cool down it thankfully. We went with the family there were 13 of us and had a fabulous time.
I can’t do 16th but I can do 23rd, 24th, 25th. Not the 30th as that’s drugs day. I can do 10th but that’s tomorrow and prob way too short notice for everyone.
Hope everyone is keeping cool look forward next meetup,
love to all
sorry, none of those dates work for me - however AFTER Wed 25th I'll have some free time (last day of School). I do believe that MOST Hampshire Schools have 23rd as last day of term, and lots of Schools are letting kids finish on 20th. we're doing a couple of extra days because we started a couple of days late in January. Also I've asked for Wednesdays off from September so if anyone else is free on Wednesdays that's going to be a good day for me.
Hi ladies and thanks Helen for coming up with a list of dates.
I cant make 16th and it may be a bit close to get everyone who’s interested to reply in time for 10th (although I’m OK for that date) . If it’s neither of those dates could we make it the next week (23rd onwards) as I think the schools won’t have broken up and Gunwharf will be a bit quieter. Having said that I realise that might be a problem for dragoncarrine so we’ll see what everyone else replies with and go for the date that suits the most.
Have a good weekend everyone, enjoy the sun and the football if you’re a fan.
