Annie Sue and Sue's hubby Andy .....
For all their tremendous hard work in organising our get together Friday evening .
When Annie should have been sitting down enjoying a most welcome glass of wine with the ladies she was at the reception desk sorting out the problems over the bookings of the rooms caused by the Ibis Hotel .
We were in for a very special treat in that we had our meal in a private room at the Montcalm Hotel which Just delightful .The tables had of course a 'Teal' theme and looked stunning and we had Teal ribbons on the backs of our chairs but some had Pink ones ...those that did were invited later in the evening to swop places with other Pink ribbon owners on the table opposite to meet others and continue the natter on the other table ..Wonderful idea !
We had goodie bags on our chairs ..not had the chocolates yet ...will share with hubby after our dinner tonight ..Thank you ..a lovely touch .....
Andy the meal was Just superb from start to finish !
Thanks to Annie the music played through out the evening was our own choice with some really lovely music and songs .
I will let our dear Gwyn tell you about her most amazing gift from Jackie ...........
This time last year as I was about to finish my chemo at the end of May little did I realize that fast forward a year ...... That I was to meet some of the most amazing ladies that I have ever met all with one thing in commen , Having Joined a group that in a quote from our dear Gwyn is a 'group that no one wants to Join' . Not one of us wanted cancer but we have gained friends through Joining 'Ovacome' .
So thank you for all of your love and support and the 'Friendship' that means so much to many of us .
Annie ...... Thank you for making this happen ...
Jackie ...... Jacks150 ..My dear friend and room mate ...Thanks for your excellent company .
We must not forget the ladies who would have loved to have been there on Friday and Saturday at the members day who were not able to make it to London .
I really did enjoy the last of the speakers Prof Iain McNeish ..well done to Ovacome for he was very interesting to listen to .
Thank you to all the ladies at Ovacome and nice to put faces to the voices on the phone !
Love Jan xxxx
