If we can put something the size of a blue whale in the sky and get it to fly graciously,
If we can transport a molecule half way round the earth in the blink of an eye,
If we can walk on the moon,
If we can breathe liquid .....

A Hero and a Shero

Now that Chris and Nets have finished their preferred sponsored torture, I would like to thank them from the heart of my bottom for their nerve, generosity, care and dedication. I would also like to thank their spouses as well, no person is an island!
Both not only completed their events but also managed to increase their targets more than twice. Chris even got so excited he wore a pink shirt and has also given up alcohol for a year!
Karma can only be kind to you now, you both know what you mean to me, nuff said here.

Running not walking

In four weeks, my little sister will be shortening these very limbs even more!

Proving that sometimes even smart people can't read, she will be running in the 10k Mouth Cancer Charity Walk at Hyde Park in London.
Well done our kid! Ü xoxox

Buggery buggery bollocks!

On Tuesday I decided to be extremely brave and try drinking cloudy apple juice - apart from the recent discovery of being able to eat black cherries (season almost over now damn it), I have not been able to eat fruit or drink any juices for almost a year, to have done so would have been tantamount to drinking battery acid. Tuesday was a hot day peaking to 27 degrees in sunny Surrey and the thought of being able to drink a glass of fresh organic chilled apple juice had me almost beside myself in anticipation. I half filled a shot glass, dipped my finger in it and then onto my lips.
I immediately smelt the apple, it smelt fresh and crisply clean and refreshing, so far no burn! I gingerly took a tiny sip, no burn, a slightly bigger sip, no burn, finished the glass, coughed and spluttered a bit but no burn! I got a bigger glass and poured some more juice into it, I took a big sip, no burn, utter bliss. Finally something healthy and refreshing to drink, it is amazing what a difference it makes :0)

Bloody bloody ...

The other night I watched Julie & Julia, (thank you Thomas & Elke). Excellent film when you have concentration problems & are fixated on all types of food whether you can eat it or not! Excellent cinematography too on my tiny TV ;0)
I have so many films to watch it is untrue, my concentration is coming back gradually, I only hope that it comes back way before I have to go into hospital again so that we can watch some of them.
I stopped work on Monday, just until the treatment has finished & I am feeling better. I thought I would have lots of time to myself, but so far it has been a really busy week. I had to go to get a blood test on Tuesday, thought I would keep it simple & just book myself an appointment at one of the local health centres instead of going to Mayday & risking sitting for hours in the huge waiting room full of sick people.

Back in the jug agayne

Round 3 ding, ding! So, it is day two of five on S ward and nothing much to report except .... my pump, which pushes the dreaded clear liquid onto my vein, is held on a stalk with wheels ok? The one I was provided with yesterday had 5 wheels and 4 of them didn't move round in any useful direction.
Now, I like to break things up a little to try and get through the day quicker, I wheel my pump down to the canteen to have my dinner (that is lunch to you posh people), today was a very lovely bacon sarnie and a not quite so lovely (if they only used reall coffee beans), cappuccino.

Sorry I have been busy doing my 1:1 document for work, I have no words of wisdom to share today, I used up all my creativity in the document.

My arm is better but my throat is sore so mustn't talk at the moment, bit of a mare really, cos I find it hard to keep my gob shut at the best of times!

Watched Miss Congeniality again tonight, don't know why it has taken me so long to get it but now I completely understand why I keep getting mistaken for 'her', yes indeedy, we have the same surname and first initial! Sheesh ..... and you thought I was going to bring up my supermodel status didn't you? ;0)
