hi there folks... seems un real posting photos of regents street in london where tony his girlfriend and i went a week last friday, i think... cant remember. but we did so here they are.
yesterday mom and i went to mount vernon for the pre chemo visit, a look around the chemotherapy suite, and mom had a blood test, so tomorrows chemo visit will be quicker than the rest... they dont actually make up the chemicals until after the blood test, incase the platelets are not right, and therefore too weak to take the chemo yet, this usually means another weeks wait and the 21 day cycle will carry on from that date instead.
i have now been to milton keynes twice on this visit, so far, keep it coming i say, but sunday was so busy, not been there when its been like that since i moved to spain, and they say there is a recession? all the people had many many bags and everyone was buy buy buy... christmas is in full swing for sure.
mom and i were in aylesbury earlier this week and i was at the till, i turned to mom and said why dont you go on up stairs to where she wanted to buy something, she said ok and off she went, i followed 2 or 3 mintues later, up one flight of stairs i went, to the display i expected to find her... walked all around up stairs in Boots (the chemist shop!) looked down the other flight of stairs, no mom, walked around again and down these stairs, looked around down stairs before back up and repeating the tour! finally i went back down to the till area again, worried mom and fallen or something, i had in mind i was going to ask to look on the store cameras! like they would have let me, but then there she was, just standing by the door! and she said oh marian, where have you been in was worried! she had forgotton to up stairs at all!!! heck...
then she bought a pretty little snow globe of a golden christmas tree, i made sure it worked... when she got home she phoned to tell me the winder was missing! i said how weird it was there? mom had put that one back and picked one up lower down on the shelf... and not checked!
and on filling up the car with petrol on our way home, i got back in the car and started the engine to find... i hadnt switched it off! not good... but at least i wasnted on my mobile and smoking too eh!!!
think mom wanted to go out again today, but i thought she should rest up a bit, or just pop down into berkhamsted with her friend she hasnt seen that much of since i have been here! and yesterday i bought some real strong (good stuff) pain killers for a head ache and all over ache i couldnt shake yesterday, took an hour or so work, but they are real good, feel bit heady again today, its just my neck.. stress eh...
more photos to post in a minute, but they will be above and you will have already seen them.
