my teal dress

Well ladies. You will be glad to know I have hired the most beautiful teal formal evening dress with all you in mind.It tapers in at the waist and just flows out to the ankle. About 4inches of the ankle black netting hangs down and there is a beautiful iintricate floral sequinced beading all down the front. it is so gorgeus and very flattering.I got a matt heavy teal stole for round my shoulders to match, a,lovely black beaded necklace and bracelets and bought a pair of open toes small heeled black sandals for just £7.99 in the sale . I also got a vintage black bag to match. I have made a lovely black bandana and had already a lovely teal chiffon fine scarf with a diamonte ball tightener to pull up the side to tighten round the bandana and hang over my shoulder at one side to the front. THis lady over here hires the dress, stole jewellery bag and shoes all the accessories for £50!! its so handy and saves you a fortune.I just bought the shoes as i didnt see anything that really struck me.Thats me sorted so you deo ont miss me in a hurry!! Will let you know how it all goes. its a very busy intinerary. Taxi picks us up from house at 7.30am to go to airport the flight at 9am , Met at gatwick by taxi which will take us to Cumberland Hotel, have lunch then briefing for an hour( whatever that entails!)WE have to be ready for 4 30 pm brought to venue then walk on the red carpet. A pre reception will be held drink and bites. for an hour then we have a sit down meal before awards start. They start 8 to 8 30 and go on to 11. 30. Sounds exhausting doesnt it!! but will be a night to remember and I will carry you all in my heart.and if I get my chanc willmention our wee site.xUna

  • once again ,thank you all for your supportive comments on my dissapointing scan results. Had a poor me night last night but back on form today, as all the crying in the world will not change my situation, so I will continue to make every day count and push on with my campaign for as long as I can.Once again thank you so much for helping me recharge my batteries and go back out fighting!! xuna

  • Sounds gorgeous I love the colour teal cannot wait to see you if lucky enough to get on the telly.If not please get a photo of your self dressed up for us all to see, thinking of you enjoy.

    love Jenny

  • Una, It sounds as though you are going to look fabulous. Can't wait to look out for you. And it sounds as though you will be getting celebrity treatment which you thoroughly deserve. Put the scan results behind you. There are so many unexpected twists and turns in this journey that you may look back at this point and realise that it isn't as bad as it seems at the moment. Anyway don't let the damn thing spoil what will be a wonderful occasion. Lap it up!

    Very sorry your result was so disappointing, but as others have said, the fact that they are giving you more chemo is cause for hope.

  • Thank you so much all of you for your support and good wishes. Am determined to have a ball , come what may!! Wanted to pose a question to you all. I was doing awareness talk at a health day today and happened to get my cholesteral checked, th girl called me bk. in and said they couldnt read it as it was higher thn the machine registered!! I have to go to g.p in morning fasting from 10pm. tonight to get it re done and broke dawn. I am so shocked as I eat healthily and with my heart being damaged with pneumonia after my operation as i took heart failure., This is an extra worry. Does anyone know if our treatment can influence the cholestral? The only thing that has changed in my diet is that i changed to butter as read how many chemicals that were present in the spreads. now dont know what to do for the best. Advice or ideas would be appreciated. Una.xx

  • Hi Una sorry carnt help, I hope the machine is back to normal tomorrow..

    It must be your wonderful get up and go and hopefully the excitement and thoughts of a brilliant time you will have in London. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

    Regards Barbara,

  • Una, WOW your outfit sounds lovely, enjoy every moment. Not sure about the cholesterol question. We eat the make, Pure, as they don't have chemicals in, it's dairy and gluten free which is really why I use it, but don't know if this is better than butter. My hubby is skinny but has to take statins as his body makes cholesterol naturally and not connected to his diet at all. Take care. Gill xxx
