    Thanks Trixie

    Wildebus has managed to look at the previous MOT (I couldn't make out the reg no. on the photos myself) and posted this on t'other site:-

    "I had a look at the MOT history. Advisory last time ....
    Monitor and repair if necessary (advisories):


    • Front bumper inner crash panel corroded
    • Front Play in inner rack steering joint(s)

    I wonder if the first one has got past an economic repair?"

    morning marie...a year has gone by since last MOT.......probably more problems developed since then........be on the safe side and ask for new mot that will tell you up to date work needed......good luck

    Maggie in Heaven

    God was being worshipped on high
    When a young woman called Maggie came by.
    She said “can I have a word?
    Cos it’s frankly absurd
    That I’d done nothing wrong yet had to die.”


    And others heard her complain.
    And they too took up the refrain.
    Women with one breast
    And men with one test
    icle said “Why me? Why cancer? It’s insane.”


    And God said ‘Humans can’t live forever.
    If they did then there would never
    Be room on the Earth
    For more and more births
    So I came up with cancer - pretty clever.


    But I can see now it’s got out of hand.
    This wasn’t at all what I planned.
    So I’ll give doctors the answers
    To more and more cancers,
    And adverts for fags will be banned.


    And more and more people will survive
    And Maggie your centres will thrive.
    And they will treat each tumour
    With unquenchable humour
    And the end of cancer will arrive.


    And from their beds patients will spring.
    ‘I’ve beaten cancer’ they will joyously sing.
    And when it’s their time to be dead
    I’ll give them dementia instead
    When they get here they won’t remember a thing.”

    For them to find a cure is all that we can hope.

    An employee of mine who has been off work for a year due to treatment. Mastectomy, radio and chemo. It was soooo good to see her, shes now on the right side, hair growing back, a new spring in her step, and full of praise for the way she was treated and had a dedicated (case worker) i think was the phrase.
    She handed in her notice and said lifes too short, her outlook has completly changed. Im gonna miss her around the place.

    Fast forward 3 days later another girl employee had a check 2 weeks ago and was told to go back for further , she has also now been told Stage 3 and so it begins again. Shes very upbeat and been through it before and also praises the NHS.

    Yes you can, Yes you can, Yes you can !

    That is so good to hear, John.

    There's light at the end of the tunnel and, like your 2 workmates, I've also been upbeat since diagnosis.
    So many people you meet and talk to along the way have had a good survival rate, some for up to 20 years.

    It's the chemo treatment that's harsh. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy and the next 3 due for me are the nastiest of the bunch.
    Just have to keep your head down, hope for the best, i.e. that you avoid infections and any horrible long term side effects.

    I've never wished my life away, but just this once I wish it was middle of October when they'll all be over with.

    For the lovely peeps on here who contributed towards a kindle for me - it has been an absolute godsend and I am eternally grateful, thank you!
    It will continue to earn it's keep over the next few months. Thank heavens for eyesight and the ability to read. The means of transporting yourself away from earthly discomforts for short periods is a real blessing.

    And on a really positive note I am nearly into the 3rd week after chemo and have started to bounce back a wee bit.

    Been up since 5am this morning:-

    - cleared up last night's dishes
    - (properly!) cleaned & disinfected all the work tops and tables, washed wood sink chopping board and wood oiled it
    - had washing machine on the go, 2nd load due in soon
    - been out and pruned 2 apple trees in the garden and gathered some ripe seeds for drying
    - taken the rubbish out
    - will get hoover out shortly and have a whizz round
    - shower later and then ready to go to hospital this morning for a wig fitting - finally! Something different to keep me nut warm

    ... and it's not even 7:30am (she said, smugly )

    PS. No chance of a dedicated case worker up here, John, you're pretty much left to your own devices.
    If you're not a tough cookie and can fight your corner you're stuffed round here.
    Friends & family plus random kind strangers along the way, also the magnificent Maggies Centre, have been the only help.
    Yes, the NHS does a good job (sort of though not always, you have to watch things like a hawk), but they don't have sufficent staff or resources to do the job 100%.

    Yes they do!

    Only cos it makes a change from scarves & hats all the time, plus it's just another device to keep your bald nut covered and warm.

    Someone I know who had breast cancer treatment last year apparently raised a load of money for charity by regularly whipping her hat off when she thought she could raise a bob or two

    Good luck with the next three treatments, Marie! Sounds like you make up for lost time on the third week.....do more than me without chemotherapy Many people find wigs a godsend....also good for bad hair days when it's grown back post chemo!
