My appointment isn’t until later this afternoon and my eldest daughter will be accompanying me which is a relief. Josie is a sister in the Emergency Dept at Burton Hospital where I’m headed and so she’s back to work on her day off.
The Breast Care Clinic is a dedicated building for breast cancer patients and the clinic I’m attending is a ‘New Patient Clinic’. The room soon fills up and with statistics being 1 in 8 women having breast cancer it’s apparent that many will leave
It’s now Tuesday 28th April and I’ve skipped a couple of days writing. I asked my husband to open the letter for me on Sunday and now know my appointment is booked for tomorrow at 1.30pm
I’m a bit all over the place at the moment as you can imagine. I can’t settle to do anything today. Sunday was a family day, Monday spent getting sorted after holiday so busy with washing, shopping etc and little time for idle thought. Oh, I did have an appointment for a cervical cancer check
We drove home through the mountains so we’d get to travel past Snowdonia. The weather hasn’t improved but it just adds to the atmosphere, it’s a wonderful journey taking in stunning scenery.
Arriving home the first thing I see is a pile of post on the stairs, that can wait. It’s amazing how quickly you slip back to routine, within no time I’m busy sorting, preparing and planning the week ahead. I easily manage to dismiss my unopened post.
It’ll be there in the morning.
Up and out for a run at 5.30am, it’s a sin not to take full advantage of scenery like this and the early morning is my favourite time to take it all in.
I didn’t sleep particularly well again so it wasn’t easy getting out of bed but boy was it worth it, I took nearly a minute off my time from Tuesday. My normal distance is 2 miles of a morning and this run is just short at 1.8miles but I still ran a personal best time for the mile.
There is definitely something in the runne
Today is set to be the hottest day so far, already unseasonably warm for April today’s temperatures are set to reach 19 degrees.
Apart from the sea breeze it’s quite still and I’ve settled down for a day sunbathing and reading. I have nothing to do and nowhere to be.
When I spoke to my daughter earlier this week she mentioned a 1st class letter from the hospital that had arrived for me. I am of course expecting my appointment through but didn’t want to tell her. She asked i
Not a bad sleep but it’s 5.30am and I’m wide awake so I get up and out and off for a run.
It’s a spectacular setting, I’m running along a straight, flat footpath along the coast road with mountains ahead of me and the sea to my right. The tide is out and the sky is almost clear as the sun rises, it’s cool right now but it’ll be another scorcher later.
The mountains ahead are known as the 3 sisters and as I reach the next village and turn to go back, I’m now heading towa
I can’t pass a magpie without greeting it and all of its family and friends. The usual things are avoided, walking on cracks, going under ladders etc but then there’s the ‘made up ‘ ridiculous rituals that can drive you crazy. Only cooking with even numbers; 2 onions, 6 mushrooms, 4 potatoes etc, use 3 carrots and somethings bound to go wrong, right? Never turning inside out clothes the right way round, asking for trouble. Making sure the volume on the radio or tv is an e
