MaryAnnSingleton Fri 22-Feb-13 10:42:55

hooray for ipad mini ned
V sad about your friend though - think you just have to say sod it really sad
Off to that London !
Welcome home from French France dear gig grin

Pen, I seem to remember lying awake one night with a sore foot and deciding it was cancer, then rationalising it by thinking well at least they could cut it off. Topsy's right, cancerititis. Well done on taking hooligan pup out.

Ned, iPad mini?! How v.exciting. Still 'no response' though on e-mail?! shock Bloody hell. It's all her, not you. I have a v.close thing same happened. Bumped into her at a party about a year ago, was so lovely to see her and she apologised for being useless, though we didn't get a chance to talk about why. I was so relieved, sent her an e-mail saying let's meet up. No reply. Hope your DS isn't wiping you out.

User, yep put pills somewhere you have to go to. Also get yourself a funky pill box. Hard to find - in fact I reckon we'd make a mint if we designed one - I got a lovely red one, which doesn't scream old lady at all and somehow (shallow, moi?!), I don't mind so much now.

Topsy, cleaning. Noooo....! House has dust-balls here. DS reckons they're fun as the cat chases them. blush Panda was up a tree at a nature centre. I was staring at his enclosure, trying to see him when I felt a plop on my leg. grin

Amber, did you get your blood results? Hope okay. I need to thank you, as I've been taking a huge dose of VitD on your recommendation and have to report I feel so much better. Lot less aches and my skin's positively glowing. smile

Lone, hope you're okay. I know it's tough waiting.

Have we heard from AtoZ? I hope she's okay. come and say hi if you're out there. x

MAS are your hands/ feet okay today?

Waving to Snails, Kurri, HND, Gracie and anyone else who I've missed. Better get on. Masses of work to get through. DH on half term duty today. smile

Copthallresident Fri 22-Feb-13 12:12:51

Lone Thanks for advice, I thought so. The root of her problem is she smells, I have actually paid to be told that is the way it is, some cats just smell. So is at disadvantage in her psychotic craving for attention. She resorts to sitting at the front gate and mugging passers by.

Ned I come to you via iPad too, but not clean and shiny, covered in a layers of greasy finger marks............

MAS I am en route for Central London too. Have a lovely day.

Waves to everyone else from train..........

smee Fri 22-Feb-13 12:36:13

Waving to Copt and MAS from chilly London. Hope you're well wrapped up. <brrr> smile

snailsontour Fri 22-Feb-13 16:09:39

Blow the mini iPad Ned - I'm a drooling over the Kitchen Aidsmile what colour did dh chose??.?!
House smells gorgeous, all garlicky - been busy cooking as have a bc 'friend' and her hubby coming for dinner - we 'met' online on the bcc forum. Really excited to be meeting up, as all the girls I've met up with so far have been lovely. And I have an excuse now for puddingsmile
I'm thrilled with my new nipples - they look amazing - and could take your eyes outsmile. Dh has a new job now - chief nipple shield maker. Got to protect these little beauties from being squashed - the things we do!

KurriKurri Fri 22-Feb-13 16:30:37

Afternoon all smile from freezing East Anglia - its snowing again brrrr - I have been cuddling the dog for warmth grin

Ned - ooh mini ipad - how exciting smile - sorry about your friend, but there is still time for her to reply, maybe she is mulling over what to say and doing a bit of soul searching - I wouldn't give up yet if she was otherwise a good friend.

snails - am envy of your nips, I am getting excited about my recon. (even though it will be quite a long time before I have it) - I have been taking sneaky looks at non-mastectomy bras.

Hope MAS is enjoying herself in London.

Smee- have you managed to wash the panda poo out of your hair? grin<laughs like Muttley> Can you find a link to your funky pill box? - that sounds like something I need, mine is pure old lady all I need is some moth balls in my handbag to complete the look.

Copt. - Some cats do smell, - my friend has 3 cats and one of them just smells (needless to say it is the most affectionate one grin) When I go round her house she always shouts 'don't sit there, Whitney (smelly cat) has just been sitting in that chair', but wherever I sit, the little stinker climbs onto my lap anyway grin

DD and I braved the snow this morning, and went shopping, - well I stood around while DD tried on 700 pairs of virtually identical skinny jeans in every possible shop, and eventually bought the first pair she had tried hmm. She also bought some sheet music in a rather strange little shop, where a little man followed us around saying 'can I help yew at all?' - he was hard to throw off grin
And we had scones and lattes for a treat.

I am planning to spend the evening huddled over the radiator, knitting the back of my jumper - I've finished the front at last.

Love to all x

KurriKurri Fri 22-Feb-13 16:41:37

For the knitting fans this pattern is what I am making (the tunic) but not in stripes - mine is a blue mixed shade wool. this wool - top row, second colour in from the left.

snailsontour Fri 22-Feb-13 18:04:02

Oh kurri that tunic looks gorgeous - I love bluessmile
Freezing here too - so I've pulled the curtains, and am keeping warm and cosy.

topsyturner Fri 22-Feb-13 21:07:32

Am in HNDs house
She got me drunk again ...
We had retro cheese , pineapple , and pickled onions on sticks !
Yum !

smee Fri 22-Feb-13 21:27:26

Kurri, that tunic looks funky. Are you going to strut your stuff when wearing it? I do hope so. grin

Snails, nipples sound fab. Did you have them tattooed? I have to wait a bit for mine as am still trying to get wonky implants right. Oh the comedy.. hmm

Non-old-lady pill box, can't find on-line. It's psychedelic colours though, like highlighter pens. A different colour for each day of the week. Here's a link to another one I have it in my wash-bag, so take it if I'm away for work overnight.
bright red and defiant!

I want cheese and pineapple now. envy Though HND, you gave Topsy, pickled onions?! clearly insane grin

Half nine and I have no glass of wine. Am off to sort that right now. Night all. Keep toasty. smile

topsyturner Fri 22-Feb-13 22:17:49

Pig/dog giving me evils due to over consumption of pickled onions ...

MaryAnnSingleton Fri 22-Feb-13 22:42:17

cheese and pineapple - a huge favourite,and now I may need to get some tomorrow- I think we have cocktail sticks.
Have had a very lovely day with T and dh- lots of walking and nice things to eat and drink.
smee hands and feet ok,though a bit tingly and prickly. Also had weird light headed sensations this afternoon when out - maybe the effects of 2 cups of coffee during the afternoon ? Dh bought me the cutest sweetest bear in the Royal Festival Hall shop - so am off to bed with it to snuggle.

MaryAnnSingleton Fri 22-Feb-13 22:43:08

tunic is lovely by the way kk - you are clever being able to knit- I have no needle skills whatsoever.

jchocchip Fri 22-Feb-13 23:52:04

Hmmm dozed the evening away again. My phone has difficulty picking up the wifi in the living room so only online now I've gone to bed!
smee Nooooo my foot hurts. Have check up next week, perhaps I will mention. (Actually was a bit better today, smothered it in ibruprofen gel and went to work in trainers...)

jchocchip Fri 22-Feb-13 23:53:52

Knitting looks great kk I'm no knitter, I can't knit and talk at the same time so knitting group tends to be for coffee and chat...

snailsontour Sat 23-Feb-13 10:39:16

I just got nipples smee, did I say just?? Says she who is black and blue from the liposculptingsmile I think it's about three months later that the tattoos get done - I have a check up in 4 weeks, so I'll know more then. But at the risk of being boring, I love these nipples - I have boobs againsmile
Ooh, cheese and pineapple - I have cocktail sticks - and cheese... Bah, no pineapplesad
Lovely evening last night with bcc forum buddy and her dh - and got away with the nights excesses - no gain on the scales and head feels finesmile Result!

MaryAnnSingleton Sat 23-Feb-13 13:25:47

damn, forgot the cheese and pineapple

smee Sat 23-Feb-13 14:32:31

Ah, snails I get it now. I haven't really got my head round the idea yet. Have to have another op to take one implant out, revise scar and put a smaller one in, so it has a chance of matching other side. That's sometime soon, then nipples down the line if I choose to go that way. Did you have GA for it? Sounds like you have to. Where did they take the flesh from? My Surgeon calls it the 'fat machine'. grin

MAS, your day sounds lovely. I think I've seen those bears in the RFH shop. We're that way tomorrow to see the Hayward Light show. Light headed might well be due to coffee. Has it come back today? Hope not. x smile

Jane yes mention feet. Mine are strangely starting to feel a bit better. Not at all sure why, but I think it might be linked with me taking glucosamine, plus a high dose of VitD3. Still ache, but nowhere near as much. smile

So cold here. brrr..

Copthallresident Sat 23-Feb-13 15:09:14

KK Tunic looks lovely and I really like the wool, I love wool that changes colour or texture whilst you knit. I've got two on the go at the moment, think I may focus back on the one I started last winter for last summer, might actually finish it in time for next summer, and then I can finish last summer's project for this winter for next winter grin That one's here but going off piste in jewel colours with leftover wool. The one for this summer is no longer on the website and I can't find the pattern book shockbut a chanel jacket shaped thing with a sort of check effect in this discontinued shock cotton in indigo with this [[]] in flint . Hey ho! May have to have a plan b...........

Poor psychocat doesn't have much going for her, smells, is rather ugly, a lapcat in a street cats body, gets so worked up when someone gives her the stroking she craves that she bites them, and gets bullied by every cat in the neighbourhood including gentle sweetiepie cat, who after the killing the neighbour's rabbit incident blush we must assume is actually a street cat in a lapcats body!

grin at Topsys retro snacks, should have had babycham or blue nun with it! just to make sure you vomited

snails my BC buddies and I have excellent piss ups get togethers but heads are always bad in the morning... There's no bonding like being poisoned, mutilated and burned together.

Alone tonight, DDs out partying, DH rugbying so just me and maybe some pickled onions.....

Poor goon dog, we were just discussing something and he suddenly got very excited when we used the word "hope" which was strange, was he suddenly pondering the future? then we decided it must be something that sounded like, was he secret Catholic? (pope) but then we realised it was "dope" exciting things follow when the word dope is addressed to him grin

Copthallresident Sat 23-Feb-13 15:10:50

smee DD went to see that yesterday, she said it was fantastic but too many little kids grin

snailsontour Sat 23-Feb-13 15:46:05

Yes smee I had a GA for the liposculpting. My ps was brilliant and she had a go at my hips, a tiny bit above belly button and the right side of my 'bad' boob where we think the recon slid a bit due to the tunnelling for the ANC. It's weird but I am an inch or so bigger from the waist down than I was before surgery - my ps said that can happen as the surgery changes your shape! Weird. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing the results once the swelling goes down. Loving the 'fat machine'smile. It's all go isn't it with these body rebuilds! Any idea when you will have your surgery?
Totally agree copt, the bonds that are formed during bc treatment are strong! No one else understands do they!
Italy Wales on here - I feel a little dose coming on to make up for last nights late nightsmile

Gigondas Sat 23-Feb-13 15:47:07

I can sympathise with dd after half term grin.

Off to rugby shortly but had lovely time in French France. I have two weeks to do first ou essay so shout at me if i am on here too often.

Love to all esp snails - nice you delurked (or deluded as my phone has it).

Copthallresident Sat 23-Feb-13 16:09:20

DH just tried to go off to Rugby in my big furry dog walking hat, with bright yellow silk lining and big turquoise "Joules" label sticking out of it, grin when I suggested he might get teased he went off and pulled my fleecy chemo beanie out of the back of the hat drawer which felt a bit strange sad I suppose it is good it gets to ride again, he should have put the wig on to and gone the whole hog grin

graciesmall09 Sat 23-Feb-13 16:54:09

brrrrr how cold is it today? I just can't seem to heat. Thinking of wrapping up in a fleecy blanket soon. You will need your winter woolies gigs at the rugby.

kurri tunic is lovely and love the colour.

ned are you about lovely? Can I pick your brains? I have suddenly this morning developed a mottled red patch on my bc side. I know you had problems after rads. I can still see very clearly the 'tan' marks but this red patch is something new. I am having a mega panic and have text my bc nurse who phoned me back and wants me to come to see surgeon on Tuesday but I don't want to bother them as I look like a paranoid patient. Googled pictures and looks to me similar to inflammatory bc.

Sorry paranoid me again.

MaryAnnSingleton Sat 23-Feb-13 17:16:30

a hug for gracie
Dh and T off to watch rugby at parents.. am wrapping dh's birthday presents.
Am thinking I may need to buy cheese and pineapple as I have such a craving.
smee no light headedness today- it was prob. a combination of coffee/the cold air and walking miles grin
Was toying with going to the Light exhibition at the Hayward but dh not bothered, same with Lichtenstein at the Tate Modern - would be unfair of me to go on my own and leave them yesterday- will plan to go again another time,plus would love to see the Manet at the RA.
