2024 Week 4 One Daily Positive and Project 365


22  Monday Peter drove me into work and I walked into town afterwards to meet him for a coffee. Afternoon spent taking up the hem of the lounge curtains and fixing a pair of trousers that had been falling down all day. Evening spent on video calls with child 2 and his wife, mum and MIL, blogging and reading.

23  Tuesday Took the car to work today, took some TOIL and left work at lunch time. Met Peter at the retail park for coffee. I'd been sick in the morning and at lunch time I'd had pins and needles and total numbness in my hands as well as chest pains. The afternoon and most of the evening was spent in front of the TV, I did take up the hem of one more curtain while watching TV, I did some blogging, reading and letter writing. Last lot of blood tests came back normal.

24  Wednesday Into work for 2 lessons then Peter collected me to go to Hereford to the skin clinic to get a growth on my leg checked out. We had a coffee afterwards and wandered around the city. Home for tea and watch the TV.

The diagnosis for the growth on my leg is Bowens disease, a form of skin cancer from sun damage, it rarely spreads and is easily treated at home with a chemotherapy cream over the next 4-6 weeks. I feel so much better knowing this and the stress has lifted.

25  Thursday Took the car to work, left an hour early for a Chest X-ray at Malvern hospital.

26  Friday Peter's turn to cook for me and my friend tonight, we had a curry and put the world to rights over a bottle of wine for her and baileys for me.

27  Saturday A lie in then packed the car and drove to Stonehenge, it was now a long walk to the stones after a new visitors centre has been built in 2013 so we caught the courtesy bus, walked round the stones and bus back as it was freezing. We then drove into Salisbury for the afternoon for a walk round, then onto our hotel back in Amesbury for the night. 

28  Sunday A leisurely morning and a drive into Wilton for a walk round, then home via a stop over in Bath. Van unpacked, washing machine on, football watched, and blog updated.

  1. Ugh! The illness on Tuesday doesn't sound good. I am glad you have got a diagnosis about the growth on your leg, what a worry for you. I hope they cream does the trick.
    How exciting to visit Stonehenge, my fella wants to go and see it. Such a shame the weather wasn't great. x

    1. Still waiting for the cream to be prescribed by the GP

  2. hooe you feeling better now? its so worrying when you have to have test isnt it.

    1. still waiting on the results of one more test

  3. Glad your leg growth is fixable and nothing as bad as it could have been. Trip to Stonehenge and nearby sounds a nice quick visit. It's nice to be able to go away just for a couple of days. I'm struggling to get N to come away for a few days. I might have to see if I can manage it over half term, then do something a bit further for May half term.

  4. I'm glad the stress has lifted for you regarding your leg, hope the cream works when you get it. I've always wanted to visit Stonehenge, its on my bucket list, hopefully one day I will be down that neck of the woods :)

  5. We plan on doing Stonehenge in half term. I have English Heritage memership and haven't used it since September

  6. Glad you got a diagnosis about the growth on your leg and it sounds so treatable. Hope the chemotherapy cream does the trick. Hope all was ok with your chest X-ray. How lovely to have a trip to Stonehenge. #project365
