How do you get going again after pregnancy?
oh no Caro, I'd kind of assumed your back problem was slowly improving. Ouch to £80, here it's £50 for first appt and then £40 thereafter. I always try and tie my problems in with whatever it was I first saw her about, so she doesn't suggest a complete reassessment!!!
... and no, I didn't know that about Melanoma either, but then I think my other friends son (the 15-year-old who now has multiple tumours everywhere) was first diagnosed as a toddler so I don't know how long that had been there. Oh it's a grim time at the moment isn't it?
EF - that sounds a bit grim re the ward arrangements, although can remember when I had J, there were c-section women in with us as their ward was full!!! Agree with others though, just try and make the best of resting and keeping baby flump where IT? belongs ...
Vixo - what a bugger re the feeding!!! I guess starvation is the next step!!?
I feel like I have sand and dirt in my ears, eyes, mouth, everywhere!!! Is incredible. We need some rain to damp all this stuff down - think we get that aplenty tomorrow.
Second run done today, 4.5 so just shy of 8 for the day ... glad it was on the treadmill though, don't think I'd have been upright otherwise.
Right, best start the bedtime battles before pilates class no. 2
EF - hope you are ok in there. is the food any good? can you get donuts?
i have had a right wobble this afternoon about work. sarcastic comments from male, ex-military 'solution directors' (whatever on of those is) about how there can't be any trains running out of wales before 9 o'clock in the morning if i'm not planning on getting into the office until nearly lunchtime didn't help. the word 'children' is a swear-word and they frankly don't care. i am feeling guilty about working the extra day, and stressed because E now has to go to the day nursery on the tuesday, and i really didn't need to hear how disappointed they were that i couldn't be in london today and wasn't going to get down until nearly lunchtime tomorrow. but in the grand scheme of things, i know it's nothing. just me being a bit pathetic.
Don't you just love working for people who don't do children CM ? And my boss is a headteacher....
EF - I was reliving your fear with you there.... Sounds very much like what happened to me when I was having Archie. I was nearly passing out due to the stress. Hope you're on the mend though. V v scary ((())) And yes, get Andy (or MR!) to get you donuts or Creme Eggs or something!
Caro -what a horrid, horrid evening for you. Heard it on the news yesterday on the way back and immediately thought of your sister. Such tragic stories. Life is so, so precious.
And grr to the back. Don't you just hate wasting money on health solutions that should be free?! I'm going to sound like a right quack now, but I've found quite a lot of relief from a magnetic bracelet. May well be pure placebo effect/coincidence but might be worth a try?
MM - not sure of our plans yet but that would be great if we're about. Will let you know! Need to speak to hubby.
Not much else. Funeral was yesterday. A lovely service as far as funerals can be. The coffin had panoramic photographs of his favourite places in the Lakes on it. Sounds tacky was actually really nice. Stopped you thinking about crying when you first saw it as it was so different! Was nice to catch up with family I don't often see, but very tired today as got back so late. A 270mile trip didn't help!
Just found out today too that it's highly likely I'll be paired back up with my old jobshare again next year. *sigh*. She needs reigning in apparently and sorting out. That's when I really hate being part of the management team...
Still, on the plus side, hubby got the job he went for yesterday. Sounds like it may well really work for us and very family friendly. Here's keeping everything crossed!
Big hugs needed all round I think!
Caro - I didn't know that it was a child that had died and that his family were badly injured as well. That is just so cruel. Also feel your pain re. expensive treatment options!! I would hate to think of what I have spent on hip/back/knee over the years! Hope it helps though!
CC - how awful for your friend. I guess they have spotted it as early as they could really but chemo on such a wee one seems so scary. Matilda has a strawberry birth mark in her groin but seems to be fading slightly and I have always been grateful as they are more commonly on the face.
JT - glad the funeral went well, alwys so sad though. My mum gets the same thing at work - pairing up with the weak/poor member of staff as she is so goo (they seem to forget that she's 64 and could do with lightening her load not the reverse!). Hope somehow it doesn't come off!
Vixo - no suggestions but really hope you can get to your singing. I'm inclined to go with Caro's suggestion - just go and she will sort herself out (harsh?! but Mummy needs time too!)
EF - so glad that things have calmed down for you. Always reassuring to feel them kicking away in there. I hope you get some sugar loaded treats soon and are able to rest up!!
Well out endless summer has finally ended and we have rain rain rain! A bit of a shock after the driest summer on record!!! Must say I am looking forward to a change in season though! And all the nice winter stews etc. We have just bought a slow cooker so will need to pinch some of your recipes as I know several of you have them!
EF - you definitely need MR and Andy in with decent food parcels if you are staying put a bit longer ... that food sounds dire (but no worse than what J was getting when he was up at Dr Grays last year!!!). Hope you get some sleep tonight - have you got ear plugs and an eye mask???
CM - you are not pathetic, it's just that you care. 'ex-military' said it all really!! Talking out of his ar*e!
JT - oh god, surely not your old jobshare, does she not need 'redistributing' rather than 'reining in'?? 270 mile round trip is NOT good, but glad the funeral was a nice as it could be. Fantastic news re hubby and the job though so definitely fingers crossed xx
Well my cousins little boy has got Rhabdomyosarcoma , very rare and he's got a particularly agressive form of it - two large lumps on his jaw and 50 small ones under his skin!!! Had first course of chemo today, bless the poor wee soul. He's in GOSH so we have all got everything crossed but such a lot for a small body. That said, apparently he's feeding well and gaining weight!
Missed that about hubby's job JT - sounds very positive - fingers crossed!!!
And CM - what an arse! Ignore!! You do an incredible job juggling all that you do - and are probably more effective than him anyway!!
Ahhh got to dash to Stratford for a meeting with a club - they have all of 15 members so not sure how effective it will be!!!
God Vixo - that sounds like chaos!! Will be fab when done though
Happy Birthday JT xx
