Good morning ladies , thankfully we are not included in the area of lockdown in Leicester - only just though ! - our village comes into the market harborough council district and is 8 miles south of Leicester , but 4 miles away it’s lockdown again which includes ES and DIL who are very fed up again 🙁 . I am not surprised at all this happened and after seeing the demonstrations and raves etc it seemed inevitable , it’s also well known in the inner city for having many small textile factories employing illegal workers and housing them in appalling conditions on less than the minimum wage - the owner of one in particular factory is also known for this - he drives a brand new Mercedes 4 wheel drive and lives in a large house in the suburbs ! Been raided many times but seems to get away with it . YS leaves tomorrow and it’s been lovely having him home for a week , he’s working from home until at least next January which he doesn’t enjoy at all . Rosie I read the sales of motor homes and caravans have rocketed recently - people are feeling safer holidaying this way , although looking at the news it appears the holidays in Spain etc are now back in some sort of business ! Cassie - I hope the situation with ED and her ex have settled down a little , very difficult . Joan , hopefully you can relax this weekend now you have finished your work project , not sure if it will be in the garden though as here it’s blowing a gale and grey skies ! Wildpurl , glad all is good with you and you are able to get out and about in your area and work from home too . My Dad has the district nurse visit twice a week to dress his ankle now - waiting to see another consultant and also to have a CT scan to see what’s going on in more detail . Have a good weekend ladies - it will be interesting to see what happens today with the pubs reopening !!

Not everyone experiences side-effects, but withdrawal of HRT in May 2018, on diagnosis has been so nasty for me, that I have no desire to accept letrozole. At 66, I don’t expect to live long enough to have a life afterwards especially as the risks of all the conditions I anticipated appearing on my death certificate are increased by the drug. It’s easy for me, as I only had a tiny tumour, negative nodes, Grade I. Admittedly HER2 +, but even so, very limited benefit from longer, nastier treatment. For younger folk, the pros and cons weigh up differently; for me, the chances of dying from non cancer conditions seemed higher with more treatment than without.
