Wanna See My New Shoes????? 
Hello everyone. I am feeling a bit more cheery today as I spent the day yesterday at Bluewater! Nothing like a bit of retail therapy to cheer you up. It was lovely there – great variety of shops but the best part for me was going to Pret a Manger where they have the best salads and sandwiches. Very delicious! I am not normally a ‘shoe person’ but I bought the best shoes – quite pink and garish! I figure people will be so busy looking at my unmissable shoes they might not notice the lack of hair on my head!

Things are looking up now that we have more daylight hours in the evening too. All we need is some spring like weather…..I am currently chitting my potatoes on the windowsill (the gardeners out there will not be alarmed by this) and have now got all my seeds and pots ready to go. I am planning to grow masses of veggies and salad this year so I can be sure of fresh, organic produce. If I get really good I will bore you all with lots of photos of beans and tomatoes!

Tomorrow is C day, number 5, and I have to go to Eastbourne hospital (they said it is because some of the chemo machines need servicing, but I think it is because I made such a fuss last time they want to get rid of me!)

I have been swimming several times, been to Body Balance and even went for a little run last night. This is not only due to a desire to stay fit ( or I should say, get fit!), but more out of a desperate attempt to stop Rupert the rabbit settling in wobbly patches on my thighs! Yes, he didn’t last long I’m afraid, but he was really delicious!

A final reminder to everyone….if you want to do the Ribbon Walk with me let me know as I have just set some training dates for some long walks and will email you with the details. Log onto www.ribbonwalk.org.uk for more info. Some of you have already pledged a donation which is very kind of you and next week I will tell you how you can donate on my ‘justgiving’ page which I will set up soon or other ways of donating. Think about joining us though – it will be a brilliant day and a great chance to get fit (or fitter!).
Love Deb x

Not Enough For A Snowman! 

If you look closely enough at this picture of Jacob and his friend Rachael you will see the snow! Easter here was VERY cold with several small dismal attempts at a snowfall but it didn't settle. My weekend was brightened up by the appearance of the largest chocolate bunny you have ever seen! Gary and Jan delivered him on Saturday and the children are already desperate to 'crack' him but he is far too cute to be eaten yet!

I went swimming a couple of times over the weekend and it is certainly helping with the mobility in my shoulder. I have something called 'cording' in my arm now which often happens as a result of the surgery and is exacerbated by chemo. It feels like someone is pulling all the tendons in my inside arm out through my wrist. Very painful. My other arm is more painful however, due to the veins being inflamed because of the irritants in the chemo. I thought things would start to look more positive as I only have two more cycles to go now, but it seems the road back to 'normality' is still a long way off. As I have nothing cheerful or humorous to say I will sign off. You might like to know that despite the fact that most bodily hair has now disappeared the little blighters on my legs are still hanging on! This morning as I attempted to put mascara on my three remaining lower eyelashes I noticed that my eyebrows are looking very sparse. Do you think they make eyebrow wigs? See you soon, Deb x

Happy Easter To You! 
Has the World Events Planner read the wrong version of the Bible? Could there be any other explanation as to why Easter is this early? And I have just seen the weather forecast which is looking pretty horrible so it won’t be conducive to little bunnies hopping around in the garden on Easter Egg hunts! I think its scorching over there in Oz isn’t it? Well, I hope your chocolate melts before you find it!!! Speaking of chocolate…..another very cruel twist of my current fate is that about this time last year (a few days before Easter) I had been given dozens of Lindt chocolate bunnies and various other assorted Easter eggs by my lovely class members who somehow guessed that I like chocolate! I hope Traci, Rosie and Lorna are being spoilt with MY SHARE!!!

Well done to those who did the marathon (great times George and Mrs Wol). And a few of you have signed up for the Ribbon Walk which is fantastic news!

Last week’s chemo was eventful. I outperformed everyone on the ward by being sick AS they were actually administering the anti-nausea drugs. They had to remove me to a room with a bed. I won’t go into more detail but it was very horrible. However I have not been sick since then. This type of chemo has different effects which I could tell you about in graphic detail if you like but it might put you off your easter eggs. Mostly aches and pains, tiredness and my taste buds feel like they have been uprooted and rubbed in a tray of kitty litter. I am hoping for a sense of normality soon – preferably before the Easter Bunny delivers on Sunday! But I believe it could be months before my taste sensations return to normal. Bye for now, Deb x
