Oh no poor her! She needs to keep it elevated and ice. The ice is horrible - I've fallen a few times in my life and it's funny but it also hurts. The rain just needs to stop. I don't even mind the freezing cold as long as sun is out and it's dry. Think i need to emigrate back to Canada! Keep dry and warm and well.x

Poor girl! Hate sprains, done my left one a couple of times and it’s not been right since the last one but in the general scheme of things, hey ho. 

Finished writing Christmas cards, now if I can only remember what I did with my

address book I can post them second class (yep cheapskate, that’s me!) and they will get there in plenty of time!

Have a good evening ladies, how’s it going Tigercub? You were due more chemo this week?

Hi ladies. I've written the xmas cards about 3 days ago but haven't posted them. Half these rellies and friends didn't really bother with me this past year so don't think I'll be posting those! Oh dear Tigercub - hang in there. Another step closer. I cannot even begin to imagine what you're going thru but well done for getting out to a work do. I sometimes didn't even make it before my cancer. No work do for me this year which I'm glad of as getting home from central London in this lovely weather was always a pain. I'd rather stay in the warmth - I know am such a hermit! I just don't like going out anymore. It's really raining out there so am surely glad I'm inside and tomorrow is first counselling session so let's see how that pans out. Good night ladies. Stay warm and well. Extra hugs for all.

14 Dec 2017 13:03 in response to Jbains I wouldn't want travel out of London .I work in small town and only takes about 10 minutes drive in .have line care today and was ok and reassurance from nurse always a boost .said sickness worse is often because of occumalative effects ? Think I understand what she means had sausage roll on chemo bus so that's nice .

Hi ladies - do anything that makes you happy. Counselling was ok - been told I haven't accepted I have cancer and the seriousness of it. Really??? Well it helped to talk it over and the confusion I feel but guess it's natural. Sun is shining but it's cold. Daughter still poorly but it'll pass. Xmas in a week - doesn't even feel like it. Enjoy your day ladies. Keep well and keep warm.xx

Oh boy! How do some of these people actually get jobs?! 

I would  have said that you have accepted it but resent very much what it has imposed on you and what you have given up to be where you are now. End of my amateur psychology!

I’m at home now and have put leave in so that I don’t have to go to work at all tomorrow. Too tired to deal with the numpty collective and can’t be bothered either. Grump!☹️

Ooh, I do like a nice sausage roll, that’s not double speak for something else, obviously!

Re: Onwards...

Didn’t used t b keen on sausage rolls - thankfully that has changed - could just eat one now tigercub:-)

Guess counselling was never gonna b a magic wand but more of a session by session aided self discovery and helping u find your best ways of coping. Going with this may take a little time.  Presumably you do have more sessions?  I’m pleased for you and how quick you have gained access to a counsellor though- notoriously long waits here. U will b exhausted- sessions can b so intense. So b gentle with yourself- sending big hugs and wishing we lived closer to talk over your talk with u. Take care x
