Morning all - there are EEs in my local shop too.
I'm not a chocolate eater but I do find Cadbury's Creme Eggs very hard to resist.
I put the black bin out this morning then noticed that mine was the only one so put it back
Anyhoo I have not posted on here or FB or anywhere for a a few weeks as things have gone a bit wrong.
Unfortunately a few days before Christmas my wife was diagnosed with breats cancer............... So our world has been turned upside down at the moment, she is haveing surgery in two weeks time then cheamo after that. It has been very hard with the children being at an age where they know about these things but they are ok at the moment.... Fortunately my work has been kind and will let me have enough time off to help with the recovery period and take as much time as I need.
With regard to my running and Outlaws training this has completely gone out the window for now as my head is totaly in the wrong place
I am not sure this thread or anywhere on RW is the right place to tell this but writting about it helps a little...
sorry about the news
So sorry to hear your news TG - I'm sure it's knocked you for 6. Please feel free to share in here - we have free hugs ((TG and family))
Oh TG! So sorry to hear your news...like GFB said, hugs are always free and available. Know that there is a wealth of support out there for you and your family, including the children, you don't have to go through this alone. Message me if you need details/pointers...more than willing to send you information if you need it. sending your wife positive and healing thoughts xxx
So very sorry to hear your news TG. I send heartfelt best wishes to you, Mrs TG and your children and hope for the best outcome possible. xx (((TG and family)))
TG I pulled out of Regensberg in 2011 for a few reason's but the main one was because my mum had been told she had cancer. Sometimes there are things a lot more important that races. At the time it was the right thing to and with the ongoing treatment as well as getting married and moving I should have been sensible and not raced last year at outlaw with everthing else going on. Did it anyway just for a laugh and DNF due to lack of training. But if you don't try you never do anything.
If you need anything ever just to talk, help with training, someone to go this is unfair to or simply a few dirty or clean jokes just shout ever on here, farsebook or carrier pigeon. Afraid at the moment there are a few kids out there is a similar situation with there friends and family your never alone just sometimes feels like it.
Know this sometimes sounds daft with the distance between some of us but your a friend and a jolly nice bloke as well. (((((((hugs))))))) and several pints of London pride feller. Also a big kiss to Mrs TG
I am in a similar position to you. I can understand how you feel. The folks on here already know that my partner of 30 years was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer the week before Christmas. We don't know how long he has left but it's months not years.
I haven't ran since then either. I can't, I don't feel like it and everything aches. I can understand how you feel.
My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 10. She died when I was 18. There wasn't any support for us at the time and we fell apart as a family.
No one under estimates what you are going through and it is individual for each person. Do you have a MacMillan nurse asigned to you? When my mother was ill it was the feeling of isolation, of having to cope alone, for me, I tried to be my mother and do all the things that she couldn't do. Silly things like being Father Christmas and the Easter Bunny and the Tooth fairy. (even though we were too old we needed the magic). It's not just the everyday stuff like washing and cleaning and getting on with life that becomes so much harder, it's the dreaming. Sometimes the furthest you can see is today and all you have energy for is to keep putting one foot in front of the other. There's no pause or reverse button. You can't unwind or go back to a better time and bypass all the shit.
I don't know anything about your wifes condition TG. There is a good survival rate for breast cancer. I know that the journey is not always easy but I hope that for you and your family the destination is one that you would choose and that your world settles back on its axis.
I should have read back before I posted as I knew you OH was due for some test a few weeks before Christmas.But as I said I have not been near RW or FaceBook for a couple of weeks. I am so sorry to hear that he has terminal Cancer. It must be a very difficult time for you both. Makes lots of other things in life seem irrelevant, and I really feel for you.
I know that the survival rate for Breast cancer is very high these days and we have been told that they think my wife will have a positive out come but its still hard to get to grips with.My wife is remaining very positive and we managed to have a reasonable Christmas. I think we will be in a better posistion to understand where we are after the surgery.
Thanks for all the hugs and a big hug to you(((( mouse)))))
*distributes hugs to everyone*
I'm having my own issues which I'm not ready to talk about otherwise I would hang around and talk more. But at least the stomach has settled down.
Love you Caz. You know where we are when you're ready xxx
TG Really very sorry to hear your news. Here is as good a place as you'll find if you want to unburden yourself of some woes. As many hugs and as much support as you could want (((hugs))) to you, Mrs. TG and your family.
A patient told me to piss off today To put it into perspective, she was saying it to everyone. She even hit a nurse with a slipper *sigh*
Erm, I seem to have worried quite a few people. Honestly I'm fine, but I have a lot of stuff to sort out in my head. Things are looking up for me
(((Caz))) This smiley is looking up too
Someone smashed the wing mirror on my car
Do you not think that drugs companies could think a little harder when coming up with names for drugs.oramorph - Oramorth, tis the place where Orcs go to reap the life from less well off Orcs. Be feared, be very feared for t is not a place of light and beauty but a place rank and moribund.or some such.
TG, uncertainty s not a friendly bed fellow. I can sense thw worry / fear / anxiety, whatever it is in your post. try to remain positive. The waiting is hard as is the feeling of impotence when you know there is nothing that you can do. Take care.
((the rest of you))

There is an up & running here, not impressed, they gave Mrs P a right load of bollocks about how the big foam roller would soon wear down to the size of the one she actually wanted. I don't know what help that is to KJ, I just wanted to get it off my chest.

It helped enormously MrP, I had a good chuckle at it.So sorry to hear about your wife Tommy. We're going through the big C with my mum at the moment, I couldn't even see her yesterday on her birthday as we've all got colds etc. Best wishes to you all, just pop on here when you feel you can.Hugs to mouse too, hope all's as ok as it can be in your house too ((()))Hope all's ok Caz. Have we seen SOLB & Hash recently? I know I'm not keeping up as Harry's been taking all my time but I do try and remember.Thank you for the top tip Cake, I shall make it there one weekend soon hopefully.Harry's a bit better again today so I think we're over the worst of it, although it'll linger for sometime to come. Hope everyone else with poorly little ones are also having better days too.
SOLB said she might go quiet for a couple of days as she had stuff going on.
