Re: What made me happy today

WMMHT, I know I'm a bit of a weirdo, but browsing in Waitrose, buying food for a lovely meal that I'm going to cook tonight to celebrate my wedding anniversary. The being offered a free coffee ( which I don't drink, bit the thought was nice) and a free newspaper.
happy Friday peeps

Re: What made me happy today

WMMHT - went to a well known supermarket today, guy just inside the door with table of roses collecting for a Breast Cancer Care Unit. On the way out I stopped and asked which unit he was collecting for, "Genesis" was his reply. He was just about to start telling me about it when I told him I knew all about the Genesis Project; a look of recognition spread across his face, "how are you doing?" he asked hesitantly. "I'm doing absolutely fine thank you" I replied with a big smile on my face, putting my money in his tin. "That's brilliant, take care now" he said beaming as I walked away. Yes I really do feel good today!

Re: What made me happy today

WHHMT: Realising nuttiness is a family trait.
Mum and aunt went shopping today, got a 2 hr parking ticket but needed a 3 hr one. So obviously straight away they put more money in the machine to get an hour ticket too. Only then did they realise that ticket would run out an hour before the 2hr one did and they couldn't add it on the end!!! They have had me in stitches!

Re: What made me happy today

WMMHT, well yesterday, to be honest, we're 2 things. Firstly, reading Lols message, saying her CT scan is clear. That is great news. Secondly, watching the announcement of the royal baby live on Sky news !! I shed a tear. a moment in history.

walking 2 miles along the river weaver with my dog, in lovely warm sunshine but with a nice gentle breeze. It's SO good to be warm after 6 months of chemo cold. In fact, today was definitely one of those "good to be alive days"

My OH telling me he loved me the person and that's why he is marrying me next May. This followed a melt down by myself that by the time of our wedding I will have lost my hair and may have put on weight.

Re: What made me happy today

WMMHT: Broke up from school for the summer and realised I'd done a full year without a single day off sick. I even juggled my PPA time to fit in unavoidable medical appointments! Pay back for the 4 months I had off last year. (I'd done 6 years 100% attendence prior to February 2012 - and was foolish enough to tempt fate by bragging about it just before dx!)

Re: What made me happy today

WMMHT: Several things:

The Magnolia we "pruned" (= mutilated) back in December is finally showing new buds and signs of life; we were beginning to think we'd killed it! 🙂

The frogspawn in our little pond WASN'T destroyed by the frost, as we thought; it's now teeming with teeny tadpoles! 🙂
The sky is blue, the sun is warm and I've been reading in the garden soaking it up (some natural Vitamin D manufacture for a change?!) listening to the birds and watching the butterflies. Life is good, and this year I WON'T be starting Rads in 4 days time. This year, I WON'T be having rads on my birthday next week!

Re: What made me happy today

WMMHT - a fabulous yoga class with Lou my favourite teacher, who modifies some of the more challenging poses for me so I can still join in. Felt a bit low today and had to kick myself up the bum to go. So glad I did - the relaxation made me feel so good I smiled all the way home 🙂

WMMHT - seeing my onc today and being given a letter stating that I am fit to travel so I can go on my cruise 8 May. Was diagnosed with brain mets last month but they are not giving me any problems and I am coping with treatment. To get that letter in my hands was a good feeling. The sun is shining, can't stop smiling and life feels good today. X

WMMHT: Seeing people posting on this thread again and getting pleasure from it.

As Applestreet said back in October: this time last year I had cancer. Now I'm NED and life is back to 'normal' (as if I was ever that?? :)) apart from a few Hormone Therapy niggles.

Wishing everyone lots of happy moments and few or no side effects from treatments. There's a lot worth living for! 😄

Re: What made me happy today

WMMHT got a tango message for my friend in Gibraltar and we continued a tango conversation as she was on the bus at the border that joins Spain on her way to work. Its always nice to receive a message out of the blue and with this new techno - tango we can have instant conversation and that made me smile and laugh as she shared photos of her girlz today. Have read some of the messages here and that made me smile as I realise that I am not alone in this journey, now comes the tears!! ... keep well all of you xx

Going out for a four mile walk with the family - the same walk I used to do three times a week dog walking with a friend. Having the energy to do it after a winter of chemo and rads was fantastic!

WMMHT: Feeling smiley. Had a lovely ride on my smiley motorbike yesterday, and cleaned and dried it today so it's back to being shiny.

Yeah, so it's a bit damp and dank out there, but I've got a cup of tea and rediscovered the joys of peanut butter on toast. Sometimes the little things are what we really need.

Oh wow JCJ, always wanted to go to Scotland! Keep promising myself 'this year', but something always gets in the way. Have fun x
What made me happy a couple of days a go, was the lovely young waitress in a cafe told me I have beautiful eyes, very kind remark to someone who feels as attractive as a walrus! (my OH asked if she is gay when I told him... duh..no, just kind) x
