Had an op 6 weeks ago to remove a basal cell carcinoma from my face, and this morning I went back to the hospital for the consultant to give me the results of the biopsy, which thankfully was good (i.e. they reckon they've managed to carve all of it out.)

Think I may have overdone my cautionary remarks about protecting my face from the sun, because the charming Irish consultant gently told me not to turn myself into a mushroom, and that life is there to be enjoyed (I dunno, you go in to fix one problem and come out with another!  :wacko:  :lol:)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.

Thank goodness the results were good!
You didn't really want to be a mushroom did you?  ;)

Great news, Jay - long may it continue and make you feel better!

As Mum says, being the right side of the grass is preferable to the alternative, and you can now wear that big hat you always wanted!

Take care eh?

Thanks for your comments Mum and Growster, I do now have a 'cricket hat', which I like wearing as much as I enjoyed wearing my school cap (ie. only when in sight of the school grounds!  ;))

If people worry about the effects of sun exposure at all it probably involves remembering to check whether any of their moles are changing their appearance (quite rightly too.)

BCC's are surprisingly common - mine was on my left temple and before the op I felt the need to mention it to my barber. She said she'd quite often noticed suspicious patches of skin on some of her clients, one of whom passed it off as just a rough patch on his ear - a couple of months later he admitted it had been diagnosed as a BCC and had been surgically removed. Worth bearing in mind folks, especially if you're fair skinned and got lots of healthy sunshine in your yoofs. ;)

The main point the consultant made was not to avoid sun exposure altogether, but to know your own skin and make sure you take sensible measures to avoid burning it.

Sounds like your consultant had the right balance there between being careful, but not letting something take over your life.  Thank goodness you did have it checked and the outcome was good  :D

Been at Mum's for a few days - so started with a tour of inspection.  All well with the world and now it is down to watering because they are a bit parched.  Then it is the dentists ....  :(

Glorious sunshine here, but I over gardened a bit yesterday and am not rushing out in it.  A more sedate day I think with possible pottering later  :D

No sunshine here today  :(
I only pottered yesterday, after plot inspection frenzy on Friday! - but my back says no strenuous work today either  :dry: but there's still plenty to do in the greenhouse  :ohmy:
I think it's going to be one of those years when I never catch up with myself  :wacko:

Bit sad here - one of our oldest friendly neighbours has just popped off, and that's just after another chum as well...

Mum, I think you once said that Stig knew a few people round here - it's dear David Wood the butcher. A lovely man, and we always reckoned he took a few pennies off our order as we lived next door, and were still newlyweds - well a few years! His wife is a darling, and we know all their children so well.

Well it was a bit of a too early start after a late night at the wedding, which was lovely. I was helping take delivery of the 1300 plants for the planting up of the village hanging baskets tomorrow. Then it was a bit too hot to do much in the garden after lunch, plus I needed to bake for the volunteers tomorrow who will be planting up the said baskets. Committee meeting this evening. This retired life is certainly keeping me occupied lol
