Wow guess bathroom done the easy way! How can they miss a wall? As long as you're resting. Glad you had a good day. Has your hair thinned? Mine thinned alot with tamoxifen and rad treatment. I took silica and biotin so bit better now. So many changes- sometimes I think about it and get tired! Sigh.....

No, hair is as is. It was in awful condition for quite a while, had it cut shorter after Christmas and that seems to have helped.

Hey Rileyroo. The days seem to whizz by. I can't believe we're into Feb already. How has your day been? Hopefully you've been taking it easy.

I actually felt good today for the whole day which made me so happy. I wasn't dizzy or fatigued - long may it continue. Woo hoo!

Sandra - are you back?

Tigercub - how are you doing?

Glad you're back Sandra and sounds like a fab time!

Well I hope adjusting time has done the trick but just didn't want to say it and tempt fate. I shall make an assessment end of the week.

Still have my bathroom to finish. I started painting ceiling but couldn't do it so hubby & daughter finished first coat on 23 dec (more paint on wall tiles and floor than ceiling!) so need coat 2 and 3 to go on. God only knows when that'll happen! 

Any chance you want me to get a spare roller for when you're down on London rileyroo?? Lol!!
