Good luck with work today Tara, hope all goes well and they get the computer system sorted at some point soon.
Sam, like you I have been embarking on cleaning (but not really - I have been distracted by all sorts, coffee, the newspaper, browsing the internet and daytime tv).
Sal, your holiday is sounding really good, never having been to Florida I can only imagine all these places and maybe I should make an effort to go.
Glad you are having a good time Sal. I am always effected horrendously by jet-lag in the States. Its grey and rainy here so make the most of that lovely sunshine!
I'm technically back at work today but as the people who took us over haven't yet set anyone up on the computer system and we work from home there is nothing for me to do!
Love to everyone xxx
Oh no, that's rubbish Sal. I must admit I have been a bit slack about protecting my right arm but this has prompted me to be more careful. Sending big hugs and hope once you are away you can forget all about the last year. I know when I was in Ireland recently I felt 'normal' for the first time xxx
Have a fab time Sal. Just enjoy yourself and forget about us. We will miss you but will enjoy imagining you in the sun xx
The problem is I don't think I ever will really be ready to go back to work - I have got so used to doing what I want all day. Though I know that I can't do this forever and am going to go back to 3 days a week and focus on my other projects on the other days. Maybe after a year off I'll discover the joys of being a social worker!
Its sad when someone you've developed a relationship with leaves, Sal, but maybe the ditzy one will turn out to be ok. I haven't heard anything from my one since my diagnosis which thinking about it must be just about exactly a year ago. I wonder if I should have a drink to celebrate still being here!
Love to all xx
Same thing for me Sam. Yes, very annoying!
Mega stressed today as work are trying to sort out an Occupational Health referral so my phased return can be planned and they've suggested 9am on Friday an hour and a half away from here. There is no way I can get there for that time. I am still an absolute wreck first thing in the morning. There seems to be so much beaurocracy and nobody knows how to treat me.
Glad to hear about another positive interview Sal. I wonder how easy it will be to make a decision if you are offered both!
Love to everyone. xx
That sounds really positive Sal and I'm so glad you are feeling happier. Sorry to hear about the cold Tracy. I got the beginings of one a couple of weeks ago but I dosed up with vitamin C and it didn't materialise.
I am stressing about going back to work as I have been waiting for ages for them to contact me regarding my 'phased return' but I don't think I am a priority at the moment as we are under new management from last Wednesday. I've had loads of hassle from the old lot and they totally messed up my pay and annual leave which has caused loads of stress over the last few weeks. Hopefully my new employers will be more efficient. I am still hoping to start up my Nutritional Therapy business as I really feel I need a change and want to work for myself if possible.
Take care everyone xxx
Just popping in for a quick hello. Sorry I've not been posting much. So much going on and trying to get my head round going back to work in a week. Thinking of everyone and sending lots of love xx
Glad to hear your mammogram was clear too, FJ and glad you had some sleep Sal.
I'd really love to meet up soon so lets plan something.
I also use the Aussie range leave in conditioner although I haven't tried anything else.
Hope everyone is doing ok.
I'm sure my hair has stopped growing altogether, so its very short but curly.
I always wanted curly hair but now not so sure, they say be careful what you wish for !
I like the Aussie Miracle range, the leave in conditioner is quite good.
Would love to meet up with you all, I'm in Lancashire but willing to travel where ever is best for most.
Been thinking what we could do so that we can have a nice chat/lunch etc without being rushed.
Other groups on this site have met up at a spa for a day or even over night, any suggestions anybody?
Good Luck to those who have their 1st annual mammogram after diagnosis this month.
I have just had mine and was clear, the worry leading up to it was awful so will be thinking about you and wishing you the all the best.
Sal, hope the interviews go well next week and the right one comes good for you.
Love to all,
