Every day is a day closer to being rid of it Caro, hang in there, you sound as though you are handling it all so well. I missed that you shaved your head in the end - good for you Does your hair grow back at all or does the chemo completely stop the growth? How many rounds of chemo do you have to have? Sorry for all the questions, I must have missed some posts along the way.
No way I'm pouring a bucket of iced water over my head either!
I've been sneezing constantly for a few days though it seems better today, no idea what's causing it. I am always slightly allergic to house dust and our cats if they malt a lot, but never had this kind of reaction before. Very weird. Sneezing repeatedly when driving is not good .
Hope you can make a decision on your busy life Lotte! Great that you are back running again though.
I'm feeling decidedly lardy after my holiday, and had to miss BodyPump last night because hubby and I would have missed each other by about 10 mins which is not worth getting a babysitter out for . Had a bit of a mope about lack of permanent job/where is my career going and ate lots of biscuits instead ! May drag myself out for a half hour interval session after the kids have gone to bed but not really feeling it right now...!
Hugs to Pip, hope you and hubby can work through it. Me and hubby have had times of not feeling very close (though not sure if he noticed!) but then things pick up again. It is a bit of a rollercoaster sometimes!
Boo to sore knee CC, how long has it been bothering you? I had a sore knee a while ago and it always seems to be linked to ITB/hamstring etc so lots of stretching and foam rollering helped, plus stopping on runs when it starts to hurt or alternating running/walking. It may not be muscular though so please ignore my advice if necessary!
2 more weeks of the hols here... Sophie's doing an own a pony "day" (2 hours!) this afternoon, not sure what me and Nicky will do as the riding stables are not particularly close to anything - maybe just a walk in the woods!
Hope you're feeling better TT and getting on well with your gorgeous little baby girl - love the photo on FB .
Better get dressed I suppose...kids watching the How to Train Your Dragon series that I've been recording - their latest craze!
Congrats TT! What a lovely surprise . Hope you are healing ok.
And Tangy - eek to Nat and boyfriend, one of many trials I expect we all have to face with our kids as they grow up! I guess if she is a sensible girl, knows about precautions, stranger danger and when to admit she's wrong, she'll be fine. It may be that they try it for a while then give up on it? He sounds like a decent type though, better than some scruff she met in a club .
Sonya - feeling your parent frustration! Hope it's not too awful for you. I've just endured a week on holiday with my MIL and am quite keen not to do the same next year... Combination of her being patronising/irritating and me having TOTM was not good! Tomorrow I'm off to Suffolk with the kids to see my mum for a couple of days so that may well finish me off .
So Scarborough was nice but my TOTM but a bit of a downer on the holiday for me which is annoying. Also felt as though the in-laws didn't really want to do anything so we sort of drifted around a lot and didn't visit as many places as I would have liked. Hey ho. Then today had an argument with hubby as it turns out he thought I was the messy one in the house (and I think he is!) - the CHEEK!! I had a brief rant about maybe I'll stop doing all the washing etc then see how messy everything is...grr...we haven't really resolved it yet but are at least speaking
Ooh and I've got a second pair of trainers at last! Half price on Sportsshoessomethingorother so £40 plus postage - Saucony ones similar to some I've had before. Tried them out on a 5.5 mile run this afternoon and they were super comfy.
So before my hols I did a blitz on exercise (for me) of about 5 days in a row of different forms of exercise which nearly killed me, then did nothing but my glutes workout and a few sit-ups all week, eaten crap,yet I felt good on my run today! How does that work?? Maybe all that pre-hols exercise worked?!
Anyway sorry for the ramble. Must go to bed as planning on leaving at 9am tomorrow. Hubby back to work so will be miserable too...
Sorry if I've missed anyone - will try to keep up a bit now things are less manic!
Just popping in to say hello as not been on for ages. Keeping up with Caro on FB as much as I can so thinking of you. And typical of Eric to potty train now! Though I found Nicky much easier than Sophie so fingers crossed he just does it himself.
I'm off work now so full-time children entertaining/refereeing in progress! Trying desperately to not spend too much money but it is hard... We're off on our hols to Scarborough on Friday which I'm looking forward to as never been to that part of the country. Money always a concern over Aug/Sept and still no idea if I have a job and how many hours if so in September .
Other than that, running seems to be improving or less painful at least, though I still get tight ITB and muscle from top of front of thigh, not sure which muscle that is.. I have just completed a 4-day in a row pre-holiday exerciseathon of 5 mile run on Sun, Body Pump on Mon, Body Attach Tues and circuits tonight. My muscles are done in . No further weight loss, fed up of worrying about it to be honest so just trying to exercise as much as I can.
Anyway enough waffle! Will now go on hols and get behind again!
