I meant to blog yesterday, but shoppingonline took up nearly as much time as going to a shopping centre. Good though because it’s not as tiring as moseying with the crowds. Apparently the Pav was madness yesterday.
So Brian,Lou, Robz & Tyler tried to go there to shop, I did not. I love this heat but it got too hot outside even for me. I stayed inside in the cool and took a lovely nap, after having done the blood test and bought doggie supplies for the holidays. Lugging 12 kgs of Hills joint mobility food tired me out I think. I don’t want you to think that there wasn’t able and willing help, I just didn’t think about it. One of those ‘remembering the new normal’ things.
Also I ‘ve been feeling so good the last couple of days, and especially good having the Willisons here. I want to post a picture of Lou having a shot of wheatgrass, with me in a sympathy action, in the morning! It is a fabulous laugh. She’s done it twice in a row. That’s brave!
Unfortunately I can’t post any pics or the great visual joke I’ve had recently, because I’m writing on my iPad, this while I’m having my chemo and I forgot to upload them into Dropbox where I can get at them. Trust me that it is funny. Lou, Rob & T brought me in this morning. You’ll have to ask them about their impressions of the whole set up here.
Lou and Rob made us a scrumptious dinner last night of Roast chook, baby potatoes and salad. I had two big helpings – and a non- alcoholic Bavaria apple beer. We sat on the porch in the warmth laughing and being serious, solving the problems of the world till 9 last night. Well I did. Pat sent me to bed then – probably a good thing. The night before we were up till 11 chatting and eating pizza. I even had 2 tiny G&Ts in celebration of their arrival.
I think there is a plot to feed me up after last week’s feeling grotty and not feeling like eating. I do look rather bony from the weight loss. I don’t think I’ve ever thought so much about food in my life. Luckily the chemo hasn’t changed my taste experience too much, so this time of mince pies, christmas cake, nuts and dried fruit to nibble on etc is a delight.
The smoothie menu yesterday was blueberry/pineapple and today was strawberries and blueberries, with Bulgarian natural yoghurt, a squeeze of honey and low GI muesli. Quite good to banish the wheatgrass taste.
So just letting you know, we’re all good and having fun.Hope you all are feeling so blessed.
