Emily has brilliant AS results. She has (sensibly) prepared us for 4 "u"s so, with great pride, was able to tell us that they were better than that.
Poor G has an overachieving chest infection and has had to curtail the partying. We are hoping rest and antibiotics will enable her to be well enough for the V Festival tomorrow. Crossing fingers and toes.
The lovely Christine arrived yesterday with more food. Such a joy to see her and catch up, especially as she is away for the next couple of weeks. I am very proud of her daughter, V, for making such a mature decision about her education and following her dream. (I went and bought 11 new saucepans thanks to you, Christine - love you!)
Lovely to see Sophie St as well for a quick cuppa, during cricket practice and Yes, Sophie, you do deserve that watch........
All this on a chemo day. Phew!
Em's godmother, Romay, arrives this evening from Aberdeen. I CAN'T WAIT to see her. So much to catch up on and one of those people I feel really comfortable with. She actually liked the girls when they were little - kudos to her. I can't wait for the soft Scottish burr and her, being a golf expert an all, may take HWISO out for a bit of R&R, now that we have heavy rain forecast for tonight.
The chemo has decreased the pain in the shoulder by about 500%. It was getting so bad that I nearly gave up on Tuesday. I was snappy, tired and slept for 18 hours - very unlike me. Chemo is weird because you can actually feel it working inside. Seriously! Back on the steroids again, as well, so was all over the forum at 4 am this morning. Grinding my teeth and feeling another SP blog coming on - just warning you all.
Picture of the day for EB who is not on FB so won't have seen it. Pirate keeping me company in bed during mouldy Tuesday.....
