Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Yup, you can keep everything private. So no friend requests etc. 

 

I did nearly cry, but ended up laughing instead.

Thanks for thinking of me. I have resisted up until now. It was always a bit awkward when teaching with requests from parents and any drunken photos! Will get son to try and sort it for me. He's out getting pleasantly pissed at the mo so may be later in the weekend.

 

Can't believe how chilled you are!

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Thanks all. I quite understand the punching advice, but unfortunately you can't just kick people out the place they are living, if they refuse to go, without a court order. And I don't even know if the seller dealt with this properly. It was definitely an illegal HMO. My view is the seller is at fault. He will be covering our extra legal costs, our hotel bill and anything else I can wangle. I think he may be doing the punching, though, but that's his call. It's very annoying, but Chris and I aren't very stressy types, so after I'd said wtf more than once, we just concentrated on sorting it. 

 

Luckily we only had a car full of stuff, not a lorry load. Anyway, we saw Dylan who is still lovely. And now we are having a glass of sparkling wine and in a rather nice flat in Media city. We've even got supper in the oven, I'm too knackered to go out.

 

I'm here on Facebook, happy to friend anyone.  https://www.facebook.com/alison.wride.1

We have set up FB groub called our gang, its secret so if you want to be added I think you have to be my friend! I actually have no idea how it works lol!

 

Soooooo Stru, I KNOW you don;t do FB BUT please please could you set up an account, just add me as your friend and set everything else to nothing and then you can join us there too? Its a much easier format to chat in xxxxxxx

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Sorry you left feeling a bit lost Em. Get Katie on the case for you. I found it odd they weren't at our onc appointments to be honest. Cov is a flipping nightmare isn't it, hopefully you'll get an earlyish slot x

Lexxy

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Oh Ali, that is unbelievable! I too would have gone with turfing him out (I disagree with your solicitor 😁). I hope you have a nice time with Dylan and enjoy the hotel. And hopefully the seller can get his act together and sort it x

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

I like Susans response Ali!!Woman LOL

 

Well, I'm now a tattooed woman 😄 40 minute drive 30 minutes to get parked!!!!!!! I DON'T want 11.30 appointments!!!!  I'm doing the breath holding thing, Jane did you do that? My Oncologist wanted me to try as its left side and I'm young.....did I tell you I love him? Young Heart Smiley LOL So any tips on that?

 

Also, I just kind of got sent off today, no one asked if I had a preferred time slot or said anything else, other than have you spoken to your BCN....just feel a bit lost!

 

Oh and that I have a preliminary start date of 2nd March but could change

WHAT that is disgusting, surely you have some recourse as I would have thought that he has misled you completely but I suppose the lawyer will sort it out and surely their lawyer knew that there was someone in the house renting!!

 

Oh mate I feel for you xxxx

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Bloody hell Ali, I'm afraid I would have gone with putting his stuff on the road and punching him 😂😂 (not really).

I've never met anyone who has only owned a house for an hour and half.

I do love staying in hotels though. Have a lovely time with Dylan.

Hugs

thanks for that, it is strange because I have had them from other people without a problem, we have sorted it now and I have managed to send a friends request to emily 🙂 x

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Um, I'm not sure that I can bear to tell everyone this. So we owned our house for an hour and a half. Then we unowned it! Turns out that our seller had a loose understanding of the phrase 'with vacant possession'. We had the option of just exchanging and waiting to complete. Accepting the house with the tenant and hoping he went quietly. Or unpick it, and go again once the tenant is out.

Obviously we also had the option of putting all his stuff in the road and punching him. But my solicitor said that wasn't ok 😂

So we are staying in a hotel, seeing Dylan and hoping it all gets sorted.

Hope everyone else is ok

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

I have been swizzed Sarah - that's what my Mum got. But I had to pay £68.90 which let me have a wig up to £120.00. I'm going to have a word with Macmillan next week.

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Hi again Susan, no I didn't pay for the wig voucher .. apparently it pays for anything up to £90 and if I want a more expensive one then I pay the difference ... Macmillan gave me the voucher xx

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Susan, do come and join us on the Feb chemo thread.  I can't keep up either - I am totally rubbish! There is a FB page that is associated with it though which is lovely.  There are lots of pictures and general chat and it's really upbeat.  Do what I do and just dip in and out and if you can't keep up you can blame chemo brain 😉 xxx

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Are your veins o.k. then Sarah? Maybe, I should have pretended to be worried about needles as my concern was that I have very good veins and I didn't want to ruin them. But she said I couldn't have it.

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Hahaha - who would have thought that having a machine serviced would mean so much. What a relief to know that you have the weekend to look forward to, as long as you're not to tired.

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

It looks like Helena and Emily you both have privacy settings set that stop people sending you requests. You can change it under privacy settings, section titled 'who can send you friend requests'. I can't post a screenshot annoyingly as I'm on my phone but will try the tablet x

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Helena - I've found you on Emily's post, but when I click on your name it doesn't give me the option to friend request, only to message. I'll google to see if I can find out why.

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Yay- weekend break from rads and not as sore as yesterday so that's a bonus.

 

Ali, I thought I knew 5 people who had had BC, 4 of whom had died - 3 in the mid 90s when I was in my first job and one more recently. However, it turns out I know loads of people who have had it, they just didn't let it be known. I suppose it makes sense and there are probably more that I just don't know about.

 

I'm in the legal world Lexxy so it wouldn't surprise me if it was a similar environment. Having said that, your HR is pants, or at least your boss is. I have been extremely fortunate with my work.

 

Sarah glad to see you sounding so much better. Charlo had her make up session on Wednesday and promptly declared herself very glam.

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Girls sorry if I have missed any of you off today it is not deliberate, I have had a busy day and am knackered now, BUT, honestly I am not doing anything for the rest of the weekend now and things have finally settled down so I will have more time to myself as my brother, whom I have been helping is well and truely installed in his new flat so I can step back now, she says with a huge sigh of relief

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Hi Lexxy, thanks for the explanation. I am a disgustingly happy person most of the time. I love getting up in the mornings, although the day can get **bleep**tier as the day goes on.

I looked on the Feb Chemo thread and it is already quite well established and they all seem quite a lot further than me, so I will stay here with my wonder women, who already know and love me (I hope). I'm not sure I could keep up with too many threads anyway and you and Sarah are both in here.

 

edited to add: that should read wonderful women, but the other is relevant as well❤️

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

I also got my wig voucher today and I've been booked onto the 'look good, feel good' session on the 27th Feb ... the Macmillan lady says it's fab and you get loads of free goodies to take home .. make up and shampoos and moisturisers etc xx

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Susan, the Hickman is a wire put in above your boob so chemo, bloods etc can be administered or taken out through it ... for me, it's because I am a wuss and so would be in place until treatment finishes and I wouldn't have to keep having cannulas etc .... it's also for people who don't have great veins ...
Oooh yes, I got shown around the ward too and I sat in the chair where I will have treatment whilst the nurse went through everything ... I feel so much better xx

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Hey Susan, your positivity is shining through and it's making me feel brighter this afternoon. Will you be joining the monthly chemo thread and facebook group?

Don't mind you asking at all 😊 It's because I have terrible veins basically. It takes a lot of faff and a numbers of goes usually to even get a blood sample, they will just collapse with all the blood tests and treatments for chemo.

The PICC would go in at the top of the arm but the Hickman goes in the chest area and has to be fitted by surgical staff x


Strudel, love that positive story, just what I needed today. I am indeed in the advertising world but the digital side, the way you spoke about your job just felt very familiar 😁


Ali, good luck with the house purchase! How exciting x

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Blooming eck Helena, you be careful you don't overdo it.

I'm really good, I am up to date with my work, so ready to be off for a week or two if needs be.

I've got my new mattress coming tomorrow and I have bought all new bedding for it, so quite excited about that. That's how exciting my life is when I'm looking forward to a new mattress 😂😂😂😂

I am fine thank you darling.  I have had a very busy day and can honestly say I am absolutely knackered.  I managed to sleep in to 9am, then the shopping arrived.  I then took my brother shopping to fill his cupboards and freezer, back to his and whilst he was putting up shower rails etc., I was setting his kitchen up, hung his curtains and put the quilt cover on his new bedding so that he can officially move in as of today. 

 

When we were in Asda they were doing 3 packs of irish diced beef for £10 they are normally £4.49 each pack, kilo and half of meat too good to resist, so I got them and I have just done a huge pot of meat and potato curry which is cooking away ready to go in the freezer later (that is if I can find some room!!)

 

Hows you xxx

Re: Our Gang! Come chat!

Wow Ali, a new house, that's not something you buy everyday. Pictures please. I bet you are so excited.

 

Emily - how did your appointment go today?

 

Helena - Are you o.k?

 

Alex - how's you new boob doing?

 

I got home from work and there were two letters, one from the BCN department asking if I needed to go and discuss anything with them as it has been 8 weeks since my mx, with a form asking me to identify any concerns I have. The other letter was from my surgery asking me to go in and discuss any concerns I have since my diagnosis.  This is the second letter from the Doctors, asking me to go on. I'm starting to think that they know something I don't 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Anyway, I'll not be going to either, as I don't have any concerns, I had cancer, I have to have chemo and rads, but apart from that I'm getting on with life quite nicely.
