Happy New Year everyone! Here is to a healthy and kind 2015.

Caro - my friend is on a drug similar to this (not sure if it is the same drug). She's having to pay for it privately though as NHS won't fund it (??5K a year). Her consultant recommended it to her as her cancer is exactly the type it significantly reduces the occurrence of. She's getting monthly injections at moment to suppress ovaries and is seriously considering having ovaries removed entirely (her line is 'if I have them removed its one less type of cancer I could get')

Off to an outdoor interval session with EF tonight - our NY resolution is to go at least once a month. I don't think it is going to be pretty

PG3 - it is cold here in Scotland, but we're used to it, nothing new in daytime temps not getting much past 1 or 2! Good luck with the half tomorrow - hope the hand trick works!

Hoggle - hope nature doesn't keep you hanging on too long and we've got some baby news and baby pics on FB to see soon. Exciting times.

Caro - hope you and E both on mend. Ill now means fighting fit for christmas hopefully!

Usual pre-chistmas manic here. MiL just arrived for a 3 week stay so that's adding to the general stress levels. And must try finish the christmas shopping tomorrow!

Reading and just about keeping up with goings on, just never seem have time to post meaningfully. So christmas waves to everyone... ho ho ho

Not read back fully but wanted to come on to say thinking of you both Camio and TB. ((( )))

TB - have no wise words other than hang in there if its what you want. Does sound like a mid-life crisis though but if you can both work through all these issues together then hopefully you will come out the other side stronger.

CM - standard University happening for the network to fall over on the first day of week 1 of the new term! Our IT folk managed to have a situation in freshers week where new students could send email but they couldn't receive any emails from University staff. Took them 3 days to resolve, hmmm! Sounds like you might manage a fix in far less time though

Caro - both my BC friends had a strange metallic taste in their mouth during chemo treatment. They said it did spoil the taste of things and both went off tea despite being a right pair of tea jennies normally. Cranberry juice was something that worked for one. Also flavoured cordials (elderflower etc) topped up with sparkling water as somehow that made it all bit more palatable! Worth a try? Glad you're feeling bit more human today - enjoy the art therapy, make sure the tears don't smudge any of your lovely painting tho

Re hubby's recall. My uncle had that test and they diagnosed impaired glucose tolerance. He had to stop eating sweet things! Can be an early warning sign for diabetes I think? My uncle went on to develop diabetes (not till he was in his 70s I may add) but its manageable through diet.

PipG - hope its a better day for bottoms in your household!

TTid - happy moving, hope it goes well. The house looks amazing and no doubt you will be glad to get in and get settled.

Not read back but waves for everyone, and big big hugs for those who need them!

Congrats Sonya - ooya he is a big lad though. Glad all well and look forward to hearing more in due course!

Does anybody else see a wee 'pirate' icon against Seren nos? Definitely seems to be bit of internetty type weirdness with the thread last day or so.

RF - Heart of the Lakes. We booked a cottage with them this summer - it was lovely. Website dead easy to use as well with good search tool. We stayed between Ambleside and Hawkshead - meant we were away from the hubbub of a very tourist-tastic Ambleside but was only couple of miles in if needed food, fish & chips etc.

Sonya - boo to still being here, but if you're hanging on then can you cross your legs till next Monday??? Would you be allowed to the chance to defer school entry for a late August baby? Up here in Scotland you can defer children born in the two months before the intake date of 1st March (so anybody born 1st Jan - 28 Feb can opt not to go to school at 4.5 years old but to wait until they are 5.5 years old)

Caro - out of four lost so far (2 front bottom and 2 front top) 2 were shark teeth and the other 2 were not. With the shark ones the baby tooth only wiggled forward as the new big tooth was right behind it. But they seem to be coming in fine - apparently they don't like giving them braces till they are in their teens so even if they were wonky we'd have to learn to love it for a good few years!

CM and Ikkle - I work full-time compressed hours so its half-hour lunches for me but one day a week (cool weather only) I go for a half-hour run. Am ruthless about it, its in my calendar and even if its manic day I still go - feel so much better for getting out the office. And since its winter and I'm not speedy enough to sweat a quick damping down with a facecloth in the disabled loo afterwards does fine. Can recommend it for productivity and sanity levels!!

Come on Sonya
... its like been days since we had any babies on here
