Oh Delly, NZ has always been a dream of mine. I'll start packing now. This morning I discovered another gift from rads as well as the permanent blackhead on my chest, this one is a good one! At last the skin under my arm has healed so I decided it was ok to shave, had to put specs on (eye sight not was it was) and to my delight the hair where I burnt has vanished so just half an armpit to shave one one side now - if I had known I would have asked them to zap my chin so I didn't have to pluck my whiskers every couple of days. Googled soap under sheets - good for restless legs syndrome and cramp too. Every time in the past when I tried to come off hrt as well as the horrendous hot flushes I suffered not exactly painful, but achey twitchy legs, they're now back with a vengeance, so tonight along with chillows, cooling pads, iced water, and tonic water a bar of soap is added to the list. just back from town, skinny latte, mooch round the shops, eyebrows waxed and tinted (first time since diagnoses) and treated myself to a gorgeous top to wear to a friends 40th birthday dinner next week. Just need to get hair cut (currently look one of those women you see in the old black and white films in an asylum). Feeling more like my old self than I have in months. Enjoy your break Janey, hope the weather stays fine for you. I feel so much better after my break away in Wales, love it there, would move there tomorrow if I could move all my favourite people with me, its people that matter. Going to make a cuppa and sit in the sun and listen to the birds now the builders working on a neighbours extension seem to have downed tools, hopefully until Monday morning xx ps, you're all so knowledgable about your results, I don't understand mine at all - just looked at copy of letter from oncologist, says ER8/8, HER2-ve, no idea what it means, have I passed, did I get a distinction, or does it mean "Lesley must try harder and apply herself in future if she wishes to succeed in life"?
