The baking definitely. She is what you could a larger than life character with a laugh to match but also a fantastic cook. Yum!

Haven’t had ginger wine in a long time...

I like people like that - they're fun.

Yes will go back as was asked to. I just can't get motivated to do anything. Will have to get my act together and bake some xmas cookies.  One day....

I don't expect too much from counselling as am quite private and she repeated what i said to her. It's gone cold now that sun is going down. Time for a cuppa - send some home baked stuff down.

Thanks, Sandra. Wish we were all close by but we have technology to keep in touch which has been great.

Stay warm.xx

Ha ha! A woman who has good taste. I had a passion fruit Swiss roll - it's cake. Might have to get a proper black forest cake now for xmas. On my 18th bday I had the best black forest cake as had local German baker who made it specially for me. Mmmmm can still taste it! That's all i remember even tho it was only couple of years ago! After all I am 21 and holding...... Yep drugs and treatment have altered my brain!

Joking aside - I am happy to be here to try to find a cake like that and eat it. My mission in life! I think counsellor talking the way she was has made me feel that I had a very serious close call. My mind is all over the place - it's confused and I even ate sone cake!!

Re: Onwards...

Cake,’specially if it has any chocolate related pieces on it, can solve all of life’s problems. 

Never mind what the counsellor says, do you feel like you had a close call?

One day I'm in total denial and the next the seriousness of the disease and that I had the big "c". I don't know really - mind is a bit jumbled up. I wake up at night fearing the worst before the mammo and again lastnight. I know that's just my subconscious bringing my fears forward. I honestly dunno how I feel about it. Thank God you and Sandra came into my life - I can chat to you both openly.

Hi guys lots nice talk of cake .I'm off out today for cafe lunch with 2 friends .one friend is very close but is very sensitive and gets upset and worries about me which is lovely that people feel like that about us but I'm very tactful how I update her .she was totally distraught when I told her I had cancer so I ended up comforting her and telling her it will be ok bit bizarre has any else experience similar it's always hard breaking news to loved ones  .I don't feel I want talk councillor at moment.work have referred me to occupational health that's all about rehab gradually back work .I'm no where near that stage yet . every one have good day
