    Good morning all, a bit more cloud around here this morning but still very warm.

    DD and her fianc! are here at the moment, came down from Yorkshire yesterday. DD thought she brought clothes that were cool enough, leggings and a T shirt, sat there baking for most of yesterday. Offered her a dress from my wardrobe but she wasn't having it lol Would have been a mile too big on her anyway, she is a teeny tiny thing, some of her clothes are assize 6 and some an 8, if she wants something roomy she buys a 10 Memories ...........

    Sal, I remember how big my FiL's chemo tabs were, I am sure he used to rattle while he was on them. Keep your pecker up and take advantage of all the support you can xx

    I dont know why or how it happened really but we seemed to gain a reputation that we were a bit of a comedy act. It was never intentional but we appeared to cheer the place up. Dd used to drive like Sterling Moss so we were never speaking when we got there. Even the Macmillan nurse used to stick her head out of her office and shout are you two speaking this week
    I used to think I didn't enjoy dd taking me until she was poorly one week and my friend took me it might have been that day I realised I was a non conformist and dd was following suit

    Sounds like you are having a professional supporting you with the benefit forms which is brilliant. Sometimes you have to know the right things to say to be successful. Macmillan/ CAB are always good to turn to if stuck.

    Big tablets

    Good Morning

    Our Poppy off colour started her being sicky yesterday afternoon.

    DS arrived our Poppy was by side sofa on her bed and didn't get up to greet him.

    DS said that was a first she wasn't herself all night

    Goes bed and around midnight some decides they will set fireworks off

    So Poppy starts trying to escape through wall and freaking out
    Fireworks eventually stop and after what seems hours she settles and gets back on bed and snuggles up

    She still not herself this morning So hoping she brightens up at her nana's .

    I had free Hovis on my Q clicksnappy - never appeared on any of our COS or other Qs
    I uploaded the receipt and it was rejected, just said it could not be processed so I uploaded again, same evening and then yesterday I got the same email, could not be processed.
    I've sent it to them again via the email address with 2 more photos and both of the ID numbers - its a short one sided receipt so I don't know what the problem is
    I had a bad feeling about this receipt although there was nothing wrong with it
    Unless its because the price is showing as wrong ...

    This morning the little one is still showing above the free Hovis ...

    As if the chemo was not enough to contend with - then there is a mound of officialdom and paperwork
    mounds of tablets to work through in the right order and quantity everyday and to make sure you have enough of everything
    and yet more appointments on Monday to overshadow the weekend ..
    Mind you the loss of a stone is quite a good thing - if the weight has come off the right places
