Well John picked me up at 11 and and immediately took me to Chez Tickle for one of my mums finest breakfasts. Yum yum (I’m determined to eat as much as I can until my appetite goes) To be honest though, apart from eating, I’ve just slept all day. Now, I don’t know if the fatigue I’m experiencing is a side effect of the treatment or just because I’ve spent the last three nights in an uncomfortable hospital bed. Either way I get to spend my days in the comfiest bed ever with the most gorgeous man ever so it’s not all bad.
John dragged me out of bed at 5 o’clock ish and made me (yes, made me) go to Nandos for tea. Yum yum! For those of you not on his Facebook, he treated me with his winnings from a BetFred free bet (ooh, I’m a lucky lady aren’t i?)
So what do I do now…
John asked me a simple question which has sparked a huge debate in my head. He asked what plans I had for tomorrow.
Honestly, I feel so ok that I could work. It’s bizarre. You hear cancer and you immediately think bald, pale and sick. I am not any of these things yet so I feel a bit of a loss as to what to do. I know I will experience side effects and I should take advantage of being well and crack on with some practical things like looking for wigs and learning how to tie a head scarf but I am struggling with time filling ideas.
I refuse to be a recluse and become housebound with this illness, but I do wonder what I will do to fill my time as the sheer boredom over the next 18 weeks will really stress me out. I also wonder what other people going through chemotherapy do: my ideas are as below (as you can see I need help peeps so get your thinking caps on)
Take up a new hobby (like knitting hats for Innocent Drinks!! – or even egg hats for Sabrina).
Do I watch the first series of True Blood that I downloaded on to my iPad in 2010…
Start my Xmas shopping
Watch the final 5 episodes of Desperate Housewives (that I downloaded when I was having surgery last year!)
PTold you my ideas were pants so please give me a hand as I feel I may go crazy.
Anyway, I’m off for Bert free snuggles with my man.
Night peeps xxx
P.s just a reminder of who I met on Wednesday night….
