Elaine... hope you are feeling perkier bunny... you stick to that sofa like glue 🙂
Well it may suprise you to know that I continue to go through my days at 100mph.... (mother says you can't die if you keep moving..)
I believe I now have everything prepared for Bunnyfeste - included home-made and home-decorated percussion instrument - shove over valerie Singleton.
Started working at 7am this morning and am still at it as have a humongous pile of management assignments to mark, well pile a lot less nw, just 17 more to go. Am teaching 9am - 2pm tomorrow then need to come home and think about packing as of course I am packing for 10 days.... and do you know, its okay. My perspective has completely changed since having cancer.
i used to spend ages writing clothes and accessory lists and a weeks holiday would need at least 6 pairs of shoes and handbags.
This time its comfy trousers, t-shirts, fleeces (breathable ones) and my wonderful Paramo coat. (serious outdoor pursuits coat - beacause I used to be a serious walker... now I hobble around like an old lady) and my wonderful Vibram soled walking shoes. Oh and a couple of warm hats. Of course this is largely due to me now being a portly size 14 pixie rather than a svelte size 10 pixie who could totter on glacial hees and wear fitted clothes. There's something to be said for being fat and bald, it Don't have cut down your grooming time!
Spent more time getting together my painting stuff, binoculars and camera....
So is anyone wearing a wig this weeekend? Mine have been stuck in the box for a month now and never think about wearing them any more, got really comfortable wth the GI jane look - albeit a bit parky round the ears when the wind is blowing!
Anyway, last posting from me as we are off to Birmingham tomorrow.... so much love to all and I will see 13 of you at Bunnyfeste. Wheeeeeee......
Oh, better tell you my latest bloody fiasco, well 2 of them actually.
1) Onc sent me for an MRI becasue of nerve damage I have. Got appointment and an information leaflet. It asked of you have metal implants advise us. so i did. told them i have a portacath. Radiographers said they had never heard of it. 9 this is the crowd who inserted the botched up one) Explained it is titanium. Told we can't do an MRI on titanium as MRI is magnetic. Explained that Titanium isn't attracted. Told me they will cancel appointment until they do some research. I wanted to beat them to death - with a big wet lump of cod. Rang my BCN (first time i spoke to her since february) Said i can't cope with this any more.... she said she would get it sorted. well this morning at 9am she rings me. My Onc has created merry hell apparently, faxed over an information sheet about titanium portals and i await another appointment as first one has nw been taken by someone else so my next onc appt will be without MRI results.....
Oncology hospital is a separate hospital to the general one. the oncology hospital is wonderful. the general is a perfect model of mismanagement and incomeptence.
2) Flu jab. Told i am high risk as still on herceptin so must have flu jab especially as am going on a long-haul flight. Booked 3 apts at my GP only to have it cancelled each time as they have no vaccines. Cancelled it for 3rd time yesterday - straight after MRI fiasco. OH went storming down to surgery and got to see my GP - think he terrified the receptionsist as he is good at cold anger 9being a copper i suppose)... anyway turn out, one of the pharmacy assistants forgot to put flu vaccines in fridge 3 weeeks ago so they had to be thrown out and they can't get hold of anymore. So at 4pm yesterday, we get in car and drive to tesco where i pay for pharmacist to give me flu jab.
So you can sneeze on me all you want - i am immune....
Right, thats hyper-hattoe signing off.
