Well ladies too sore to go (Legs, back, shoulders) so am gonna give it a miss. Gotta rest up for sun onwards! Ha ha rileyroo our mother's do come out in us aĺl. Not a bad thing. It's warm and cost in the house and after spending an extortionate amount on car best to save the pennies as well. It's all too much effort this socialising. Made banana loaf instead. Can't get better than that! Gotta get my rest for the craziness called shopping timorrow so enjoy your evening ladies. You were very good telling manager rileyroo. No one knows what this is like and everyone reacts and handles it differently. You go guurŕllĺ!!

Yes your right company of good friends is great therapy but bless them they don't know what say sometimes.it is tricky if you just say your doing ok that really isn't always case but if you tell them too much there truly shocked probably go home depressed.one friend has beaten breast cancer twice so she is very calming to talk to and says it doesn't upset her to discuss her scenario s but totally Different to mine but emotional issues same .got try do main food shopping tomorrow after hospital bound to be crazy .don't need buy hardly any alcohol I'm not really allowed cos of liver although nurse said probably one glass wine won't do any harm .

Know what mean about the not knowing what to say thing, ‘Stay strong’ when I felt as tho I was crumbling didn’t really help a great deal altho I’m sure they being supportive. 

I’ve lost the taste for alcohol, not too keen on the smell either. Was never a big drinker but not interested at all now. As a positive, less alcohol, less expense!

Yeah, sometimes technology can’t replace face to face but it will have to do.

Ditto rileyroo. Totally went off it until last month. Can handle only 1 and like certain type of gin. Sober xmas is best one. Will put enough weight on with food!

No turkey or any meat for me either as cannot stand taste of meat. Gonna be fun!

Yes less expensive never drank much anyway if I did have couple glasses wine start feel drunk and unwell so there was no pleasure .I've gone off red meat and lot cooking smells turn my stomach 

Re: Onwards...

Again, as a positive, less meat, less expense!

Not quite that bad. I didn’t eat much red meat before, was told I needed to increase that a bit, hence the lasagne avatar a couple of weeks ago. I’ve started going back more to my normal diet now. Prefer white meat and love fish. I enjoy cooking when I have the energy, still a bit lacking in that department as yet.

Yes I prefer fish to meat any day apart from bacon do like bacon sarnie . taste buds bit odd as well 

Re: Onwards...

20 Dec 2017 20:18 in response to tigercub

Ooh, yum!  I like a bacon sarnie as long as the bacon is crispy!

Re: Onwards...

20 Dec 2017 20:38 in response to rileyroo

Never was favourable to bacon before. It's hard being a veggie when it wasn't out of choice and everyone in family all meat eaters. Try to replace protein with eggs and nuts.

Yep I'm most definitely a cheap date!
