Today was Wednesday 27th October

The day started off pretty sensibly actually. We were up at a sensible time, had a sensible breakfast, and left at a sensible time to get to my appointment for ten past eleven.
We picked up the idiots from hell on the road, tractors, cyclists, and people out for a leisurely drive, so at 10.55 yours truly was getting pretty anxious as we still had over 10 miles to travel, and were concerned about parking as our appointment time was later than the others.
As things turned out, we pulled up into a disabled parking bay just after eleven, and I was registering my arrival at 8 minutes past.
Hubby was allowed to come in with me, which was only right as this affects him too and we have no secrets.

The information my aunt gave me was very useful, and I am at ‘moderate risk’. Everything has been noted down but it is not necessary for me to have the test to see if I’m carrying the breast cancer gene. She confirmed that I am on their five year watch, and has given me the number of their breast care nurses in case I have any concerns.
We felt it was a good result.

Discussing having a cup of coffee, Hubby discovered his wallet was no longer in his pocket so there was a panic on. As he made his way back to the car, I retraced our steps to the clinic. He phoned me to say he’d found it under the front wheel of the car, luckily in shadows so not immediately visible unless you were looking for it. Lucky or what! Everything was intact, so we went and had our coffee to unwind.

Car parking was free and from there we went to the builders merchants to purchase the wood to make the counter top for our new hob, which fitted in the back of the car with no problems. Great news is that Hubby’s shed will be delivered next Wednesday. Yes. We have finally got him a shed, and although not exactly what he wanted, it will be sufficient for his needs and he is well pleased. I must admit I am probably more excited about that than the new cooker going in now!

Keep safe everyone!

I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That’s good news. And finding the wallet untouched was great too.

    All good news on every side! And the shed is to be delivered! I hope your husband can get the shed up before winter weather makes things difficult! and congrats on the health front especially…

  4. Glad to hear that you had a good report. Lots to keep you busy these days! We are going in for our booster shot today.

  5. Okay, I know you are squeezed for time and that it’s precious to you right now, but catch me up. What the heck? Was there a ‘scare’ recurrence of your cancer? That’s the vibe I’m getting, although later posts have reassured me that the tests have been negative (so therefore good results) so far? What’s been going on?

  7. WordPress is eating my comments on your blog! 😦 Here’s what I wrote in response and I do hope it only shows up the once!

    • Bless you for your concern Melanie,
      I found all three of your messages in spam………… I check spam and trash every day so have restored them all.
      No problems, honestly. I saw my GP a little while ago because The Football under my arm felt ‘different’. No pain, no outward difference anywhere, just not the same. He arranged an ultrasound and I was due a mammogram anyway, so we have moved everything up here rather than travel 285 miles for a five minute scan and then 285 miles back. It’s too much for Hubby now.
      Anyway, everything is fine and what they would expect, but because there was breast cancer on my father’s side of the family, they were surprised I hadn’t been tested for the cancer gene. I contacted my aunt (she’s 94 now) and asked about my aunts and cousin who had died from cancer. One of the twins had cervical cancer and died in 1978. The other had breast cancer and a mastectomy, and died in 1981. Her daughter also had breast cancer and a mastectomy, and died in 2006. They were all in their 50s at the time. I had my first strike at 60 and second at 63. I spoke to a lovely lady on their History team, and she said I was a moderate risk, but no need to have the test. I have their number for the breast cancer nurses and will have regular mammos on their watch until 2024. I’m on meds until 2029.
      Throw Hubby’s problems into the mix and it’s been a mass of hospital visits, and for him CT scans, ultrasounds and an endoscopy. We are still trying to sort things out for him, so everything is very much up in the air and I’m trying hard not to drop the ball!
