Chemo was swift and efficient this morning. Got the drugs in quick and the bloodtests underway. I would be having very serious thoughts about the value of it, if I had to go to Oxford everyday. Thank heaven for The Brodie Centre.
Then the worlds of hospitality and finance started to conspire against me. All I wanted wa a nice hotel, for a couple of nights, near or in Brighton. Tripadvisor turned some up, all full, Visitbrighton found some, over £500 for 2 rooms for 2 nights, several small b&bs were answerphones, Premier Inns were all full or very expensive at Gatwick. So, off to Travelodge. Found what we needed within a reasonable price, made the booking, credit card refused. Call from credit card people telling me there is too much fraud from this website so I needed to clear the payment. Cleared, tried to rebook, no rooms! Called Travelodge, confirmed no rooms as system was holding them waiting for my payment to clear, wait a while, call back. Rang credit card company to ask them why I can't spend any money and moan about possibly losing the rooms. Their answer was a polite "tough shit we are protecting you". They protected me with the initial website, they protected me with their verification software and they protected me by phone 3 times. Shame they don't protect me from cancer.
Anyway, rant over, rooms booked, Bluebell line here we come. Thanks Snook. I need targetsand prizes to get me through this. Have set some motorsport targets for September and October, need to create a chemo schedule to see how it fits. Must sort out some fun for August.
