Going out with my friends tonight for our Christmas meal. I had a look at the menu’s earlier and wasn’t thrilled with any of the options which is really unusual, I struggle to make a choice normally cos I like all of them. Looking on the positive side, probably means I won’t get indigestion!!

I find the same issue as I don't eat meat or fish. Not too many options depending where you go. 

Enjoy the time out rileyroo.

Tigercub hope you're feeling better and keeping warm.

Hi.went for meal yesterday with some elderly relatives .food was. Ice when got it .I asked for fishcakes . waitress came to apologize mine had been dropped on floor and it was last one so had make another choice and would not get charged fair enough .but took ages to arrive every one else had finished there meal I was feeling sick which is normal for chemo and hungry but couldn't eat it all .but hey ho these things happen you have laugh at end of day every one else was annoyed and I just wanted go home bed .got another meal Thursday with work colleagues different pub .so hopefully that will be better .I'm going make that last one while it's getting bit awkward for me not them . eating when you feel sick is different and I feel people are watching me .and loo visits they must think I'm bulimic ha ha .oh well time breakfast always welcome hubby making porridge .

Morning ladies. Aw Tigercub its a shame the staff couldn't get their act together. Yes you gotta laugh otherwise you just stress yourself. Glad you got out and went. Yes hope Thursdays one is better service. I think sometimes people just don't know how to react and don't want to be too sympathetic or not enuf. I just avoided all situations like that during and short while after treatment. Guess I was just a coward. Enjoy your porridge. Ok rileyroo and Sandra - don't tell me off......... I decided to paint the bathroom ceiling. Got 1/4 of the way and had had it. I couldn't leave it like that so had to finish it. Got to the point where legs just buckled so rested. It's so frustrating that I feel like I can do this but my body doesn't! Told hubby he's got a task on sat! I've always been a do-er and been waiting 5 weeks for him to do it. Couldn't stand it. Best thing is I didn't need to go to the gym for a workout! Yes guaranteed I won't move from sofa tday. Enjoy your day and hope work meal was good rileyroo.

At least you've made me feel not alone in trying to be "normal". How you do it is admirable. You are an inspiration for the rest of us.

There are some good Xmas films on telly and hopefully my car will be ready today. Going to be very painful paying such a big amount this month. My poor car was ill. Nevermind it was sooner or later so best to just get it fixed and over and done with as next year is going to be so good. I'm gonna kick this year goodbye so hard and soòoò look forward to 2018.

Ok lesson learned rileyroo. Got my car back - much better. Am on sofa and have been. I have a meal out locally with few friends tonite but just cannot be asked. I'm a real hermit lately. I'll get my oomph back. Might get some food shopping done tomorrow. Have an enjoyable day and enjoy your ripple Sandra. Have been on green tea - not same effect but feel as if I've put weight on so gotta get to gym when I can but in meantime control my diet before splurging next week. At least I have my car now. How's the tiredness rileyroo?

Ready for the break if I’m honest. Looking forward to not feeling pressured into conforming with the norm and doing my own thing without having to worry about being tired and having enough energy for what others want! Oh god I sound like my mother! Why, aye hinnie!

Ha ha rileyroo. Our mothers allllways come out in us at some point Happy

Yeay jbains u got wheels again:-) rileyroo is right - don’t dance to someone else’s tune when u don’t have too - if u don’t fancy/want to go tonight u don’t have to again no one is judging us:-)

I’ve already said if I don’t start

getting some support I’ll go back off sick and cite stress as the reason. Scared the *#%! Out of the manager! Bloody typical but he’s been off sick the last two days with a cold! He does get severe tinitus and colds make it worse but really? He does this pretty much every year at around this time and gets away with it. Don’t do as I do etc...

Know how you feel about being naked without a car Jbains, although I can pretty much walk where ever I need to, just knowing that I can jump in the car and go means a lot.

Your friends won’t judge you, your real one’s that is. So just enjoy meeting them for what friendship means, the food is only the excuse to meet.
