Groundhog Day

… And it really is. Since I’ve started this new chemo I’ve not really been able to plan anything, as I tend to have a busy day (which knock me around a bit) and the a washed-out day recovering from

A little break and a new chemo

May the fifth be…. better? Results day.

No beating around the bush. All of the little bits and bobs hanging around, unwanted, in my brain have not been playing fair. There are a couple of new bits, and one bob making itself known in a rather annoying
