Day 8 of chemotherapy should see me starting to feel better. Yesterday was the day of feeling like death warmed up! Back ache, bile and metalic taste, nausea, anxiousness, fatigue and unable to sleep longer than a couple of hours at a time. Today after taking medication to fend off most of the above symptoms I am hoping to come good and enjoy the sunshine that has appeared outside! Expected temperature will be 16 degrees celcius and sunny - a perfect Winter day!
Monday brought a wonderful surprise for me - my daughter Jo invited me to a high tea at the beautiful Windsor Hotel, Melbourne. I caught the bus that has replaced all trains for 2 weeks while school holidays are on and so that VLine can work on the rail tracks, then a quick tram ride down Bourke St to Spring St and the Windsor hotel. A wonderful 2 hrs with Jo and little grandkids.
The Hotel Windsor in Melbourne has been serving traditional afternoon tea every day since 1883.
Our luxury hotel in Melbourne serves its renowned afternoon teas on silver three tiered stands where freshly baked scones are served with jam and cream and exquisite pastries sit above delicate finger sandwiches. A glass of French sparkling is served on arrival and an extensive selection of speciality teas and coffees are brought to your table throughout the afternoon.
Due to my bile/metalic taste I stuck to a scone and beautiful sandwiches and Sencha green tea!

Comment: As posted in June this scheme also includes the Sydney suburbs of Hawkesbury, Holroyd, Hills Shire, Liverpool, Parramatta, Penrith, Auburn, Blacktown, and Fairfield and many others. If you live in NSW it is worthwhile checking with your local council to see if they are part of the scheme, and if so when it will commence.
