Going to skim over the day. Great to see people at school and chat…a pity I could not see the Silkster…..missed the guys in mission control as well (only saw G briefly). Treatment this afternoon was el crappo. could not subvert the system and went in late and had to drive in rush hour. Long drive with headache that continues until now…which is bed time.
Only thing that made me giggle today was a story from my mother-in-law via Alison. Uncle Barry was over from Aus. You could not think of more of a ‘Pickwick’ than Uncle Barry. He is heavily into his travel, although intriguingly seems quite a novice at it, as he has been lost twice (?) on his trip to the UK this time…once in Greece and I forget the other place. He does have a habit of wandering off. Barry will find an alternative to everything – his greatest gift is finding a difference of opinion. I really like him and sad to have missed him this time. He went home on Sunday from Heathrow and as he was going through security they took him away to a small room. When asked why he was there and after answering lots of probing questions (I understand that was the only probing) the customs and police asked him brazenly whether he was carrying explosives. He replied in the negative but it still took them three searches to confirm this fact. Perplexed the police continued to give him the third degree until Uncle Barry admitted that he had been to a fireworks party on the Saturday and had not changed shoes or trousers. This is the truth as told – if Barry is reading he might like to tell us the truth. Barry if you are reading remember to never let the full truth get in the way of a good story.
Chemotherapy tomorrow and really worried as it made me feel so bad last time. Must spend more time in bed if needed. Long radiotherapy also as they need weekly scans….all told, ahhhhhh!
