So we have returned from Lapland and it was wonderful and certainly action-packed! Thankfully for Evie (as she kept pulling off her mittens) not as cold as it could have been. I think we’re all paying the price for our exertions now though. For me – I’ve already missed two Christmas nights out and am not sure I can face the one tonight either. My immune system has taken a dip and I’m definitely fighting virus. But what is really discouraging is the lump that I know shouldn’t be in my right breast. This time I have pain because of what it is displacing, but also pains in my ribs and I wonder whether this is indicative of further spread – or whether it’s just the virus. I’m scheduled for a big screening day at the Marsden on Dec 29th and if I pass, I’ll start the trial on 6th of Jan. However in my current frame of mind/ body I wonder if I should have asked to start earlier. I’m not sure it’s now possible to organise with Christmas and their skeleton staff structure - and I don’t want to miss out on seeing the children in their performances/ concerts during their last week of term. Must focus harder on what we need to do now - buying a new Christmas tree and decorating it.
