LOL JenniFartyFar, your description did make me laugh. Fortunately, it was nothing like that.
Kieran, I'm sorry, I also omitted to congratulate you on the weight loss. Having been there myself ( more than once) I know how difficult it can be.
We'll keep an eye on the GPO Meldy - from a safe distance!
(((Yums))) Is there no end to the reorganisations?
Chuggy, it sounds as if Monty is catching on quickly. He's a bright lad and eager to please, I'm sure he will do well.
Podds, sounds like a lovely day and it seems that the DG's chemo is not cramping his style.
MS kindly bought me a new lappy last week but, for some reason, it won't stay connected to the broadband. So I can only get on-line when he doesn't want to use his comp Tempers are getting frayed and patience wearing thin as neither of us have any idea how to fix the problem!
It will be a relatively early start tomorrow as I have to be at Southampton for 9.30.Never mind, at least I don't have to stay up to book aquagym as it looks as if it will be the week after next before I will get there.
Coco, sounds like a good decision to get a doc to have a look at you.
And you DL -boy, are you going to need it! It is horrible to think of the way these kids are moved from pillar to post with, it seems, little consideration for their feelings. At least you and FC4 will get a period of stability (it's the first time I have heard the words 'stability' and 'DL' in the same sentence!).
(((Snaily))) I'm guessing that, after his recent behaviour, you are no longer feeling sorry for ex Mr S?
Spence, you are going to be hell to live with when you have to go home!
Awww Meldy, don't be mean to poor ikkle doggie who has been abandoned by his mummy and left to your tender mercies
Have been to Southampton hosp this arvo and had the device reprogramed, I have a couple of days to see if I think it helps. On Friday I am going back so that I can try a slightly different device. It will use the lead that is already in place, I won't need another trip to theatre.
It has been a dismal day here, raining for most of it and, when the rain had finally stopped, foggy on the way home from hozzie.
Oooh look, The Lesser Spotted Dragon! It is so good to see you Please don't run away again, I need another non-runner to keep me company (perhaps that is exactly why you are running away?).
Spence, I always hated the people who could turn up, trot off a 10k/half mara/whatever without any training - and beat me hands down . Sounds as if you are having a great time in Welsh Wales.
Mind you, DL, Spence is correct in saying that you are actually quite good at this running lark - when you eventually get round to it.
Crikey Tubs, that sounds stressful!
Yummity - thank you .
The plan today was that MS would pick up SM (in the car, he's not that strong!) and drop us off in Poole for coffee while he went off to play bowls. Unfortunately SM wasn't feeling terribly well so we ended up getting a taxi home. Don't really know what the problem was, will need to keep an eye on her.
It has been a beautiful day here, although the light is going now.
(((Amanda))) horrid to be sleepless, especially after all that exercise. Glad that your mum 'only' has an SCC. On the whole, they are one of the better skin cancers.
Podds, I'm so pleased that the DG is doing well. Hope you enjoyed your walkies in the sunshine.
Spence, I do envy you the time with The Dragon, I'm glad you both had fun. Coffee and walnut cake is one of my faves too
I'm feeling rather frustrated today. Before this trial started I was told that the nurse specialist would phone most days to see how things are going but I haven't heard from her at all. I phoned the consultant's sec this morning to be told that both the nurse and consultant are away for a few days. I really think that they should not have put the device in if there is no-one around to keep an eye on me! Anyhoo, the rep is going to see me, in Southampton, on Wednesday and the rep is going to try a few different programs on the device to see if that helps.
Have been out for lovely coffee and chat with bff, nice to get out of the house.
(((Amanda))) I hope the race went well. I also hope that everything will go well for your mum. Do you know what type of skin cancer she had?
Spence, I hope you are having fun in Welsh Wales. I know that the rural areas can be a bit behind the times but I can't imagine you starving.
Well run Yummy, I'm glad to hear that Mrs Dawg is well on the mend.
Podds, how is the DG doing with his chemo?
Melds, trust you to join the club just as the social stuff is starting. Hope you had a great time.
Chuggs, I have looked at the FB photo's. One of those males is particularly gawjus, I will let you decide which one you thing I am talking about
I am tingling well and the post-op soreness is settling well. However, I am rather disappointed with the pain relief ( or lack of it) that I am getting. Not yet sure when I have to go back to the hozzie to give my verdict.
