    I think PJs are probably the best solution to a day like today, Val. It's well below freezing here. If you're body is asking for rest, let it have rest. Chemo does flatten you and you need time to recover. ((()))
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    And another one over and done with. Hope you've managed to get plenty of rest today Val and that you're not feeling too bad. Pjs are the best thing for this weather.

    Val...Why oh why did you do this. Do you carry a card with you saying you've had chemo? I know how you feel wanting to get out and do things yourself but try and be sensible. You are nearly at the end...don't ruin all that hard slog....not sure where I got that word from.
    Take care dear Val

    Bless your heart. OK, so you misjudged things but so what? We all do, you've realised it, you've rested and your secret is safe with us. Well done to your men for keeping things ticking over, it's not summat that comes naturally to the male of the species and it may make them realise just how much you have been doing. Remember this: stop when you think you can do more. Always. ((((())))) xxx DD

    It's probably the stubbornness, as much as anything, that's getting you through this, Val, but, please, leave the spuds, bottled water and juice to your men in future. I know it's just lovely to feel 'normal' and do normal things but do be careful. ((()))

    Oh Val, please look after yourself. Mind you, I'd have probably done the same. Rest, rest and more rest now. Steve will handcuff you to the bed? Have you two been reading 50 Shades? :lol:

    I think Val could write a much better book- 50 Shades of Determination :D

    I hope that you're feeling better now, Val. Take care, and don't push yourself too hard.

    Val you are bloomin' marvelous and I admire your spirit so much! To mention others when you're in the middle of all your treatment is so selfless. You inspire me and so many people. :D
