  1. New Layout & Forum Software

    I’m not too bothered about the new layout I’m just glad that it is still seen as an important part of the Omlet family. If it can be revitalized in some way then all well and good
  2. Paypal question

    I rarely sell anything on bids these days I just use buy it now I find you tend to get more money because people are impatient! Hope she doesn’t get it.
  3. Paypal question

    I list all my items now with a warning that it’s a second hand item and listed as such. I photograph and describe items carefully and don’t except returns or offer refunds. So far this has helped. I got fed up with time wasters especially on electrical items which left us in perfect working order and mysteriously developed faults on delivery. I now sell everything electrical with a warning that although working when dispatched no guarantees are given or I list them as untested. Funnily enough I had my first ever item returned to sender today. It was a shirt that I had posted in January to a flat in London and I suspect it had been taken back to the sorting office with a card left and they hadn’t got around to collecting it. I’ve received no complaints so not sure what to do with it now. Can’t see the buyer being happy to pay further postage.

    I like a nice single malt too, I’ll happily have one after a meal out rather than a dessert. I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth. I like good gin too and my favourite cocktail is an espresso martini
  5. Not sure if I’m allowed to do this or not, if not moderators please feel free to remove this. I feel I want to give something back in gratitude for the treatment that I’ve had for my cancer so far and for the Herceptin which I’ve just started. These treatments wouldn’t be available without the years of expensive painstaking research that has gone into them. As a result of this I’m taking part in the Cancer Research Walk all over cancer challenge this March. I will be doing 10,000 steps per day every day in March. My radiotherapy starts on 26th February and I live about 2 miles from the hospital, I will walk there and back daily during the week and then take more scenic walks at the weekends. If anyone would like to donate to Cancer Research the link to my fundraising page is below. Money goes directly to Cancer Research. I will keep you posted on my progress. Thank you. https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/liz-walks-all-over-cancer-35

    Sad news, I remember her
  8. Cocoons

    Sitting on a beach or cliff top for me or woodland. It might sound morbid but I also find church yards very life affirming. Sounds bizarre but they are usually very peaceful and make me thankful for what I have. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in our local one which also has far reaching countryside views during my treatment. It is somewhere that I can walk to and sit on a bench for quiet reflection when I’m in my low immunity phase and have to keep away from people. I’m a bit of a loner though so that probably explains a lot!

    You do get a decent class of clientele in Waitrose

  11. Omleteers fit for 2016

    Thank you for you kind comments mullethunter, I really don’t know any other way, I refuse to give in! I’m also fortunate to be in otherwise good health so I want to make the most of that. My son’s girlfriend has scoliosis too and has done yoga for a few years already to keep her as flexible as possible. The Pilates that we have done has been very gentle stretching mostly. One of the ladies has cancer in her bones and brain and another is 70 with pinned knees, shoulder and a fused foot and they both have managed most exercises in some form or another. I would recommend that your mum has a chat with a few instructors to find the most suitable group. I was inspired very early on by the lady with bone cancer, she is very upbeat and grateful for the 14 years that she had in remission that gave her the chance to bring up her children. I met her early in my treatment and decided if she could be this active and positive then I had no excuses.
  12. Omleteers fit for 2016

    I’ve had 3 free Pilates sessions through our local Maggie’s cancer support centre and loved it. The instructor is great and really explains how the body moves and aims to improve balance and explains how important that is as you get older. I am going to join her class that she does specifically for ex Maggie’s people in an ongoing basis once a week. I want to improve my posture and core strength. My dad and gran both had terribly curved shoulders which has caused a lot of health problems in old age and I want to try to avoid going the same way. I’m also back to my 10,000 steps a day 2.5 weeks post last chemo which I’m pretty proud of. I have tried to stay as active as possible but I’m still impressed with myself . Also did a full day of work for the first time since November today. It’s fair to say I’m a bit pooped now! My breast cancer forum ladies have got a Fitbit challenge group which is quite motivational
  13. Children standing in Shopping Trolleys

    I remember Prudence I too would never tolerate bad behaviour from my children. Still don’t, they are never too old to be told off! I hate to see children in shopping trolleys too especially when they are munching their way through something which has yet to be paid for! Since when has it been acceptable for children to squeal and scream too, another bug bear of mine. My nephews and niece are awful they have a modern permissive mother
