Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

Hello all - I have posted a request to join your group on FB. Our house is about 30 miles from Manchester, and I have treatment at the Christie - my primary diagnosis was June 2008, then secondary Feb 2010 (bone mets). I spend a lot of time in Oman, but will be back in the UK this summer, so would love to meet up!

Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

Hi Sue
It will be lovely to meet your friend -- there are a few "Cupcake Girls" who don't post here and aren't on Facebook either. No idea about date/venue, though -- Poannie did circulate a message asking about when we might get together, so hoping she has the answers!

Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

Morning all

Do we have a date yet? I have a friend, Nicky, who also has secondaries but is not on the Forum, can I bring her along too please? She cannot drive anymore and a trip out to Manchester on the train will be a real treat for her.

Many thanks

Hi
I have just requested to join the group on FB. I have secondaries in my lungs and would appreciate being able to talk to other girls with similar experiences and feelings. I'm about 30 mins away from Manchester by train.

Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

Hi all
I have requested to join you on Facebook. I live in Manchester and was dx with BC in Jan. I have had 2 out of 8 cycles of chemo and not looking forward to my next one next Thursday. If I am well it would be lovely to meet up.

Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

Hi everyone

Julie & Galen - you are now members of the Cupcake Girls on FB!

I've got a busy month in May, but week days should be ok, provided we sort one out soon!

Hope to see you all soon - had a few of my fellow cancer friends die just recently, so it would be nice to catch up with you all sooner rather than later

Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

June does seem a long time away. Bring forth a May date by all means. I can do any date after the 12th. Now then, I don't recall seeing shoes at the craft centre but I'm sure I saw bags. Light shades, pictures, pottery and jewelery. Not much to go at. And seeing I left before the browsing and second courses were partaken, I feel I did miss out so I'll be sure to make up for it this time!

Love L
X x X

Ps. I'll look forward to meeting new cupcake girls!

Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

Hi Ladies

I havent been on the forums for quite a few weeks as I had my second EC chemo on 29 March and this one really floored me have been feeling really rubbish and very low ever since. I was going to get in touch re your last meet in March but it clashed with me getting married so I wouldnt have been able to make it anyway. Manchester is only an hour away for me on the train so would love to join you for necxt meet if that's ok.

Have found you on facebook and asked to join. would be nice to meet some secondaries ladies.

As for shopping between courses, Sue, you can do the shoes me I cant resist handbags

Hope all are feeling well. I had blood transfusion today so am hoping that is going to pick me up off the floor where I have been for the past 3 weeks

love to all

Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

Hi Sue -- I love the "shopping between courses" -- Ruth & I blush in recognition! I'm so boring I have almost nothing to do in June, so I'm sure I can make most of those dates. We also have two more "local girls" who want to come: Sue who lives in South Cumbria and Jo who lives in Manchester are hoping to join us next time.
Love to all cupcake-girls, Marilyn x

Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

OK -- can I suggest Tuesday, the 23rd of March, lunch somewhere we can get good food AND cupcakes -- where do we think that might be? I'm quite fond of the cafe in the Manchester Craft Centre, near where we met last time. What do you think? Needless to say, it also provides opportunities for gormless purchases, spending the DLA . . .

Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

I'm sure I'll be able to fit it with most dates this month. Got treatment this week but other than that, I should be free. Will be really great to see you all again - and anyone else with secondries who wants to join us!

Re: Manchester Summer Cupcakes

I'm really sorry I haven't been keeping up to date with this Cupcake meet up..... Things are a little hectic at the mo. Hubby's been made redundant so we're frantically trying to sort all that out!!

How is Wednesday 12 August for everyone? We can decide on a time at a later date?

Gotta go now - I've got an interview at a temping agency this afternoon!!
