    Ouch Nellie, I feel your pain, lucky that DD1 heard you shouting sweetheart. Take it easy and rest the leg but gentle movement will keep it building strength. Hope you get mobile on the road soon xx

    Thanks AJ, I am managing to get about with crutches but also getting plenty of rest. I am sure I will be ok in a few weeks. Had to laugh though my hallway looked like a disability shop. My Mum & Brother came and brought a wheelchair, crutches, walking frame and a portable commode They had been my Dad's when he was ill. They have taken them back now thank goodness
    Thank you to everyone for your well wishes

    Good morning Elite

    Massive hugs to the Elite poorly and those low in spirit. You are all in my thoughts today xx

    Slept in this morning, 8.55am, good job I don't have a job to go to else I'd be late . I remember switching off my alarm at 7am to take my meds but didn't actually take them oh well better late than never

    Last night I kept thinking about our Elite who are under attack from cancer. All we can offer is love, hugs and support as there is nothing else. They have every right to feel depressed, angry and confused. Where to next some are thinking, if only we had answers.

    Positivity isn't always easy to find when you know there isn't anything else for you and time isn't on your side. It's natural to be be angry, to be scared and not know which way to turn.

    If anyone wants to let it all out away from RL family and friends come here to your Elite family, we're here to listen, to hug and support you all through these horrendous journeys

    Nellie I'm taking my hat off to you on crutches I found it bad enough walking with two walking sticks when I had my right knee replaced my size 7s had me tripping over things that weren't there. Make sure you have a mobile on you, in pocket or in a crossover body bag, just big enough for phone, handy if you fall and need to call for help xx

    Right, I'm off to finish my catch-up from last night then going to read for an hour or so, see you all later xx

    That Sister is going down to help Mum for her Cataract op on Thursday
    Need to pick dandelions tonight for her to take for the tortoises.


    in case anyone is wondering... She hasn't had treatment, she got signed off from hospital, so we will never know if the cancer spreads
    Her 'cure' is well water & healthy eating

    Now you can see why I've put her in a secret compartment in my head

    Today's weather fits my mood perfectly its lashing down. I don't usually use that phrase as it sounds a bit brash but today I'm feeling brash I cannot show any other emotion only anger for our mate JTS I'm truly gutted for you but I can only echo what I've said before you have to scream back in its face YOU WONT BEAT ME because I truly believe that's the attitude you need.
    I cannot begin to imagine how you feel right now but we're here if you ever need to sound off. There are somethings that you just can't talk about with your loved ones.
    And I repeat F##K YOU CANCER

    In other news. We had a great day at Olympia for the Allergy/Free From/Vegan Show. Loads to sample and loads of freebies. Then we went to St Katherine Docks for meal at Zizzi. We were all still full from sampling but managed a main course each. Mine was free as Birthday treat from them and as there were 4 of us, it included a free bottle of Prosecco too. And it was so nice we ate outside
