Hello Yvonne and Elizabeth.
I don't know what it's like where you are Elizabeth, but it's a glorious day here today, unlike yesterday.
I know that you will understand why I am saying this Yvonne, as you are here in Kent today.

I hope Marilyn's chemo went well today....sending hugs to you Marilyn, stay strong sweetheart. <3 <3 <3

Jeni, just to let you know that I am thinking of you and Scarlett constantly. Sending you my love and hugs my mora. Hope to speak to you very soon Jeni. <3 <3 <3

I am sitting here waiting for news on my friend Florence. Today she is seeing the specialist about what type of treatment they are giving her before the operation on her nose.

Heres hoping that you are all well. Bye for now. Mo

Hello everyone

Lovely to see you Marilyn,

Congratulations Noreen and best wishes to your family

Had high winds and rain this morning, a tree came down in my street and just missed a neighbour's car. The electric went off this morning at 7 and came back on just after 2. Son was annoyed cos he couldn't use his Playstation,TV or computer.

Off to Kent tomorrow to see my sister

<3 <3

Oh Marilyn, it so wonderful to hear from you my love. We don't care if you are completely bald honey, you are who you are, and hair doesn't change that lovely person underneath.
You know we will be with you in our thoughts on Tuesday, and no wonder the nurses want you on the ward for your treatment, with your personality why wouldn't they, plus Petes treats must also be tempting for them.
Stay strong Marilyn, dont let the bugger beat you. <3 <3 <3 :-D :-D :-D

Many congratulations on your new baby Noreen. Have they decided on a name for her yet?
Mind you, she was a good weight wasn't she, not to big, and yet not tiny either.

Jeni, it's been blowing a gale here today, and raining cats and dogs, so if we are in for this bad weather they are forecasting, lord help us.

Hi Maddie and Pauline, good to hear from you both. I had begun to think you had vanished into thin air.
I hope things are well with you both. Please pop back when you can, we miss your input on here.

Well it's time for my bed now, so I will say goodnight god bless. Mo xxx

Hi all

Marilyn, great to see you back, even without your hair you're still a sight for sore eyes. :-D :-D

Jean, I don't know how you keep going, you've been through this so many times. Keep going :-D :-D

Noreen, your £2.50 pattern made me laugh. Congratulations on the birth of another granddaughter. :-D :-D

Hello All you Friendlies!

Just to let you know I am still looking in now and again and seeing that you are all being kept in order.

Shelley, will we recognise you, now that you have lost all that weight?

Mo, well done at the darts.

Nolls, congratulations on the new arrival!

Marilyn and Jeniwren, hope you are both bearing up, and feeling well, chemo is not easy on the system. My love to you both. <3 <3

All the other Friendlies, ~~~~~~~~ to you all, keep well, keep warm!

Hello everyone, hope you are all ok :-) :-)

Marilyn, so good to see you on here, take care love,
rest as much as possible. My hair is disappearing again,
but being Romany I always wear a dickla , (scarf tied like a bandana)
having chemo on the ward makes it easier for them to keep an eye
on you, also helps you to relax more. Will be thinking about you
on Tuesday xx

Congratulations Mo on winning your darts :-) :-)

Not looking forward to the storms that are forecast, hope they are wrong.

Take care and stay safe xx :-) :-) <3

Hello my Darlings !!

Just home for a couple of days........feeling tired but fighting this (C) with vengeance.

My hair is nearly gone going to have to have a wig or bandanna,s soon.think I'll have a Union Jack one ...LOL.

Back to hospital on Tuesday for more Chemo they seem to want me on the ward rather than an out patients Chemo, I think its because Pete sends in doughnuts & tins of Chocolates on a regulator basics for the nurses...

Love to you all I will read backwards to see what I have missed !!

Take care all.....Love Marilyn XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Oh Noreen, what are we going to do with you LOL ,a pattern that cost you £2.50 pmsl, you probably could have bought a brand new one for less, but never mind hun, the seller was probably chuffed at receiving your money, and was rubbing their hands together. ;-) ;-) ;-)
We didn't win at darts last night, but, I did win my singles, and my partner and I won our pairs. We play on a trebles board on a Thursday night, and they haven't changed in size in donkeys years. But on Monday's we play on a Kent board, it's a black board with no other colours on it, and is a doubles board, nothing like a trebles board at all. Confusing hmmm, but we are used to it, and it's much harder than a trebles board, as you can't score a sixty with one dart....not that I do that very often, but I did get a 120 score in my singles last night.

Time for dinner now, and some clearing up after Roly's DIY. Must do it tonight, as we have got Lilly tomorrow.
Bye for now, be good, if you can't be good, be careful.

Hello I'm back .... sort off .... keyboard letters are jumping making it awful to type so going back to lappy hosp. asp.

Hope you won the darts Mo used to play years ago don't think my eyesight would cope with small board , can you get extra large boards now I wonder?

Shelly what a good idea must try it sometime what I find is the most annoying is getting every thing ready to bake/cook turn around and it's back in cupboard .. ugh!

Well got 2 Christmas cakes done yesterday one for daur hope it's ok remember making mum's once.... all the fruit fell in a thick line to bottom and top was sponge! she gave it to her neighbours when they came for tea... and they all asked for recipe?? Bet their eyesight was bad.

Now I dare anyone to laugh .. don't you dare. As some of you know g/daur no 13 is due 4/11 so been buying blankets and thought ah! baby shawl looked on EB** a wee bit dear but one on auction so put a bid in at £2.50 to start with ..... well we know it should go about £30+ but then forgot it till I was told I had won...Eh? what a bargain it came yesterday in an envelope .....a beautiful shawl ............................................ Pattern ? what the **** .. will have to go to SpeckS****s me thinks ....anyone good at knitting and wants a pattern free?? hahaha

Just had news DIL going into hosp tomorrow to be induced slight prob. but nothing to worry over (hopefully) so no. 13 due tomorrow/next day no name yet , well not telling us :-D Such excitement .

Hi Everyone hope your OK see you soon

Right Take Care Be Good Enjoy Tomorrow

Thank you Elizabeth and Shelly for the birthday wishes.

What on earth is happening to our little thread, it's becoming desolate, and slipping right down the boards.
Come back friendlies, we miss you all. Just a quick hello will do, just to let us know you are well.
No doubt Noreens lappy is back at the lappy hospital, as it's been unwell just lately, and no matter what lappy doctor is looking at it, they seem to be misdiagnosing it.
Come back soon Noreen.

Must get ready for darts now folks, so take care, speak to you soon. Mo
