Christmas was going so well - about three weeks ago we were ahead of ourselves and everything was planned out; the shopping, some nice Christmassy days out too.
Then I got really ill and we lost two weeks overnight.
Now Christmas is next weekend, I've just had Chemo and not really feeling too great and there's no time to do anything.
Except on Saturday morning we found time to go into Egham to have a coffee and listen to some Christmas music....amongst the trolleys outside Tesco's;
It's The Egham Band again and very pleasant it was too, even if it was a bit cold and miserable out on the street.
They played all the traditional favourites and after quite a while listening we went for a coffee.
Unfortunately, I got really cold without realising it and spent the rest of the day trying to get back to normal.
But it was worth it.
