I was just saying to Colin it is about 10 degrees lower than it was two days ago here.  We have had thunder and some rain but it only lasted for a short time, still not enough to warrant me not watering tonight Smiley Sad

 

That sounds like you are going to have a fab weekend my friend.

 

I can imagine it did shake you, I would be the same, Lets hope she does come on here and we can support her in same small way

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi ladies hope you are all ok. Seems like summer is almost over today!!! 😣 off up to hartlepool tomorrow to visit my youngest son!! Got a group of 8 friends coming with us for the night, should be a fun weekend whatever the weather. We are all staying on the marina there in the premier inn and we are having a meal and drinks at my son's pub then off out after round the bars on the marina. Apparently it's Hartlepool carnival tomorrow too. How kind of them to put up the bunting for our visit!!!!😂😂. On a serious note I just bumped into an old school friend who I haven't seen for years. She was wearing a chemo cap!! We hugged and cried, in the middle of morrisons much to her hubby 's embarrassment!! My heart aches for her. She is triple neg stage 3. Told her my own story
In brief but definitely felt so humble and thankful that I only had lumpectomy, rads and hormone inhibitors😓. I told her about this forum and she may use it. Shook me up seeing her. 💔💔

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

It’s great isn’t it? I’m off to see it for the second time tomorrow. 

 

So I had my second 6-monthly bisphosphonate infusion on Thursday. Was slightly dreading it as I felt awful after the first one in January but actually, it was ok. The staff said that the first one tends to be the worst in terms of side effects; thereafter your body is more used to it.

 

Hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the hot weather.

Dont worry I will be.  I have my mum coming over in two weeks, she is staying with my brother, and we are going to spend a lot of mum and daughter quality time together.  I am also going out with some friends in the evening over the coming weeks so looking forward to that as well.

Yep it has been interesting bowling on some days.  We played last Sunday at 10.30am thinking it would be so much cooler, wrong!! by the time we finished 3 hours later the sun was relentless.  We all got excited on Tuesday evening as it went very cloudy and they were black clouds.  None of us were going to get our waterproofs if it did, unfortunately they blew over without dropping anything.  The other side of this weather is that the greens!! are very dry so are like grease lightening, its like playing on an indoor carpet and trying to keep your bowls on the green is a struggle.

 

Good to hear that mate, make sur eyou do, it will be hard on you for a while.  Also a tip keep up your water intake levels, I still do even two years later and I know on days when I havent as I get home and fall asleep.

 

Got my op date now for 18 September so I will be on an enforced 6 week "holiday".  Starting to get everything ready for then, I am afraid I am a planner and need to make sure everything is sorted so that I dont mither about it.

 

We have the breeze here but it is very very humid, currently sitting in the lounge with the patio doors and front door wide open to try and create a through draught

Hi Helena hope you are well. Yes I'm returning on phased return. Don't worry I intend to do as little as possible for as long as possible!!😂😂. Think the bloods were also for kidney and liver function so win win!!! Mishy sure is hot here tonight!!! Not like me to complain about the heat but there just isn't any breeze!!!phew!! The brow thing sounds good!! Could the pins and needles in your back be due to a trapped nerve or something? Hope it turns out ok anyway!! Helena don't you go worrying about September yet!! Enjoy the next couple of months of this glorious summer. Can't believe how lucky we have been!! Mind you bowling must be tough in this heat!! Take care 💖💖💖

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Evening ladies isn't it hot 😨 off to local Maggies for a Charlotte Tilsbury event with brow bars pampering make overs etc its to raise money for Maggies so for a good causes they have helped me in so many ways wanted to show some support plus could do with a bit of pampering although not sure if i want anyone to touch my brows getting really attached to them now they are back!!!
Mentioned at GPS today about some pins and needles type stuff in upper back being sent for MRi to be on safe side with recent history of bc his words so looks like this is a new normal tests if you have any symptoms which otherwise would be put down to other things at least they are being vigilant but all the same i must have cost the NHS a fortune hopefully it will cool down tonight xx

That is great news.  I must admit I have not had an annual blood test for calcium either, I take a VitD/calcium tablet twice a day.  Mind you I have had enough blood tests in the last few months to last me a lifetime I think, and I am having another set at the end of August prior to my hysterectomy in September so I am sure it would have shown up if there was a problem.

 

I am assuming you are going back on a phased return to work, so make sure that you stick to it mate as you will need it xxx

So I attended the meeting with my managers at work. Just an Informal chit chat really!! Didn't see what benefit of that Was! Looking at retirn8ng to work late August early September. Visited my team and fook them chocolates.tbey seemed happy to see me and was good to catch up with some of them. However when I looked at them all I could see they are still under pressure and the confirmed nothing has changed since I've been off!! Oh well I'll.be the new girl again as my brain has definitely lost some cells this last 8 month!!! Deep joy!!!!😂😂😂😂💖💖💖

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Mushy/Alibobs - my job has been at risk for last 18 months and really get what you mean - like you I reckon stress probably plays a huge part. I find out this week what will happen to me and hoping redundancy payout allows me some time out to get fitter and balance out a bit after what can be best described as a roller coaster of a year.  It’s such an unnerving time knowing your job is at risk and such changes hang over you from the minute management communicate it’s happening until you find out what it means to you personally

 

Im having a blood test early Sept and Onco said it was to test for cancer related proteins - watch this space as will get results mid Sept - gulp!

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Im with you on the stress thing too Ali i was really stressed last year before diagnosis and wonder so im keen to wrap this business up sooner rather than later xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Evening everyone hot and muggy but looks like it could lash down with rain and thunder i love a thunder storm ⛈️ 🌧️🌩️
Well Ali i know how you feel re work ive got my redundancy consultation meeting on Friday looks like its definitely going to go ahead so jobless im beyond gutted bht im pleased i stood my ground and didn't go back when this is happening as it would have been far too stressful im just devastated to be unemployed never been in my life im worrying about the whole looking for a new job process and gutted they couldn't have found anything else for me
I suppose at least i can enjoy the summer but it really is bloody boring having nothing to do so to speak xx enjoy the heatwave i really feel for all of the girls going through their treatment atm i remember when it wa hot last summer when i was having chemo it was uncomfortable so i hope they are all coping with this heat 🌞🌞🌞🌞

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Morning lovelies!! So today I have to have blood tests done. My gp says it's an annual check up to see if I have too much calcium in my blood!! Anyone else had this? I'm on calcium tablets due to taking anastrozole. Never knew you have too much of it!! I'm feeling a bit low today. Got a meeting a work tomorrow with managers always find it daunting. Return to work is looming and it makes me sad!!! Really really wish I didn't have to. Can feel my stress levels rising already. Sure it had a contributory factor in my diagnosis!!! So angry that as a waspi woman I have to work an extra 5 years now b4 I get a pension. Have been robbed by successive governments!!!! Hope you all ok and enjoying this beautiful summer 💖💖

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hello lovely ladies. Phew, it is hard doing working in this heat. So I went to see the new Mamma Mia movie yesterday and had a great time - thoroughly recommended if you liked the first one. But have a tissue on hand - it gets a bit teary towards the end.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi Alibob, Bootleg Beatles sound fab My blue bit is still there after 6.5 months - looks like a bruise, think you may be going for a world record though 😂. @ Shi, I’m great thanks - spent the day at Nottingham’s finest festival Spendour. Some great acts including Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Bjorn Again, Marc Almond and Paloma Faith - loving that we are having proper summer, could do with a Club Tropicana pool in the garden though to cool off 🌊🏖

 

Hope everyone else is well and enjoying the Summer ☀️☀️☀️

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hope everyone is keeping well. I'm shattered today! Went to a race night at Pontefract race course last night and saw the Bootleg Beatles perform after. Was a fantastic night out with plenty of bubbly and a lot of boogieing!!!!!! On a different note I still have my blue blob 9 months down the road anyone else?? 💖💖

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi Shi thank you for asking about my late mum's friend. She has just messaged me to say she has had an ultrasound and they found some small tumours which they consider to be benign. However one is giving cause for concern so she has to have it drained next week?? She is in USA so not sure of their processes. Bless her she had a mastectomy in 1995 and has had a couple of recalls since but is now worried she has BC again.

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Hi all

 

Been off the radar for a bit as returned to work in May 30th wedding anniversary and holiday in June and just had 3 month oncologist appointment 😌

 

Mishy don't return to work if you can manage without . I was expecting the new team to be in place when I returned but instead 2 had resigned and so has my line manager so a very unstable unhappy place . So I just go in do my 50% hours do as little as possible and wait to see what hair  brained scheme the new boss comes up with😞

I even find that hard and I admit I probably returned too soon but as I'm the only earner half pay wasn't an option but as I'm getting new side effects which oncologist things are caused by the Tamoxifen I will stay on reduced hours for another 3 months 

 

On a happy note my hair is starting to really grow although it  is very grey but also quiet wavy 〰 Il always had straight hair 😯😯

 

We had a few days a way in Guernsey for our 30 in a posh hotel so was able to relax and unwind

 

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine🌞🌞👒👒🕶🕶

 

Although the heat isn't helping with the hot flushes

 

Hope you all have a great weekend xx

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

What a shame about England my return to work has been well and truly scuppered was looking forward to it but to cut a long story short when i went to chat to my boss about going back in June i was hit with the you and all the others whi do your job in the company are having your role dissolved in phase 2 for this so for me not till October right near the end of what should have been the phased return they are offering a different post but its as a care worker!!! How the hell they think i cab do that is beyond me so in order to get my redundancy im niw going to have to stay on the bloody sick there is ni no way im going back to have notbing in 3 months time x

Re: Club Tropicana - Pull Up A Chair and Chill

Feeling kind of sad this evening ladies. I keep in touch with my late Mum's friend who lives in the USA. She had BC 23 years ago. She is now in her 80s and has just had a recall from her annual mammo, she has health insurance there, she now has to go through all the hoops as we did. I just thought after so long she would be fine!! I'm devastated for her especially at her age.😢
