Chemo cycle round 6..........

.................not quite yet.
Col was due in for the 6th chemo session today but that's been postponed until next week while they do some investigative work to find out why he is still short of breath. So it's another CT scan today instead. He  felt well enough to get out into the garage yesterday  to sort some of his workshop stuff, he's been wanting to get that done for weeks. The garage has a pitched roof and some boards across the beams so he's been able to put a lot of stuff up out of the way. I can now get my bike in and out without tripping over

I picked our first "harvest" this morning ready for our lunch - a colander full of salad leaves, all from 2 small troughs and plenty left too.

 Then I walked down to the charity shop, to take a few more bits in and found a book of Sudoku puzzles for 50p which was a handy find as I've only got 5 left in the book I'm working through. I like giving my brain a work-out over breakfast every morning.

 Not much else has been happening here at the bungalow, which is why I haven't posted for a few days. Lots of reading  and TV watching - loving the Invictus Games.

Welcome to Roses,Lace and Brocante - a new follower, but still numbers are stuck at 353 so 1 in and one out again.

Thanks for comments recently
Back in a day or two

  1. There are online sudoku sites, if you're interested. I do a couple each day too.

    2. I used to print them out, 4 on a page.
      Gets addictive, there's an endless supply online.

  2. You will get sorted eventually, Col just needs to take his time, but I know normally busy men find it very frustrating not being able to do too much.
    So nice to pick some salad leaves, it is amazing what you can do in a small space. Take care both of you x

    1. My courgettes plants are looking OK and the 3 tomatoes are growing but that may be my lot for this year. Frosts forecast for friday night so I shall have to cover everything again

  3. I loved the view from your hut in your last post, and have hut-envy!! You both more than deserve to enjoy it though. I've tried, but just can't get my brain round Sudoko puzzles - I am a word person, and my brain works in a particular way. That's my excuse anyway! I am enjoying the brain training games on Lumosity, which site I have joined for a year. One of my favourites is a car racing game - you need VERY good reactions for that, and also the train challenge one where you have to get trains into the right station, changing the tracks, as they go faster and faster! Sometimes my brain really HURTS after I have gone flat out on that one.

    I am with you on growing less to eat this year - with me going flat out with my little business, I am going to concentrate on just a few veg and less digging and weeding.

    I hope they get to the bottom of Col's out-of-breathness.

    1. Apart from sudoku, I like codeword puzzles and word searches but those you describe sound a bit beyond me!

  4. Will this be Colin's last chemo, I hope so, they do give your worse side effects the more you have.

    1. The last normal one then he has a really nasty different sort that will make him very ill during the stem cell treatment thingy

  5. Your salad greens are very nice. Glad Colin was able to a bit of a sort out in the garage. Once he is feeling better he will I am sure have many ideas to make the best use of your space. Hope the chemo that is causing the awful shortness of breath is soon over.

    "Not much else has been happening here at the bungalow" I for one like hearing about your every day life including your meal plan etc.

    1. I don't really do meal plans, especially now as we never know if Col will be in hospital or not or eating well or off his food! and we keep dashing off to the beach hut whenever the sun shines!

  7. I can't do Sudoku for the life of me, LH has mastered it but even he is still on the easy to middling ones.

    It must make Col feel a bit better when he can get out and do things, hope the scan goes well. Will the sixth lot of chemo be the last?

    1. We always say it's a shame that Sudoku wasn't around when my mum was alive, she would have loved them.

  8. There's a lot of Sudoku apps for gizmos, my mother loves hers! Ha, wish I could let colin loose on my flat. So much to throw away. So many bills and things I need to burn or shred.

  9. that's a good little harvest you've got there.

    Sorry Col is still suffering from being short of breath, hope they can find out why quickly, but how nice that he felt up to sorting stuff in the garage.

    1. He should get results of the scan next week. Hasn't it been another lovely day - we dashed off to the beach hut when he got back from hospital. It was a bit windy but OK hiding behind the windbreak, there were lots of wind surfers about today

    2. it was windy yesterday, but I'm glad you got to the BH. Bracing stuff! :O) Feels - dare I say it - COLD this morning! xx

  10. The greens looked lovely!
    So glad he was able to get out and do a bit.
    I am terrible to trip over things, our garage is a land mine at each step.
    Happy for you to get to the beach, what a blessing!

  11. That looks like the beginning of a great lunch.
    I am happy to hear that Col was able to get outside for awhile.

    cheers, parsnip

  12. Once a market gardener always a market gardener it seems Sue - salad leaves already. Love and best wishes to Col (and to you too of course.)

  13. That is nice little early crop. I do hope they get to the root of Col's breathlessness soon. I too have been watching the Invictus Games - compelling and exciting.

  14. Sorry to hear about Col, I hope they figure it out and that all will be OK. xx

  15. Hopefully Col is feeling better. I don't do sodoku/sokudo mainly because I can't say it properly! I sometimes given them to the kids at work as a register task!
