Blimey, February tomorrow - where is the time going?

Lentil and roasted vegetable lasagne on the pub menu this evening - unanimous verdict at the Sweeting Towers taste test was "yummy"

LD joined Twitter today, so I am now wondering even more if I should join - it might get more publicity for my blog, which could help me get some magazine interest .....

Sounds yummy indeed   If I hadn't stuffed myself with chicken and veg I would be tempted to ask for leftovers to be emailed.

I have never got into Twitter, never even dabbled.  I think I have too much to say most of the time

We're trying to eat more healthily - less meat and, when we do have meat, stick pretty much to chicken/turkey. I love lentils anyway, so am happy to cook with them almost every day

I struggle with the concept of restricting myself to 140 characters. It doesn't suit my voluble personality

31/01/2012 at 19:58
I'd hardly have drawn breath let alone got to the point by the time 140 characters had been used up.
31/01/2012 at 20:04
I suspect I would be the same, but then again, conciseness is one of the attributes of a good writer, so perhaps I should practise I am thinking ot contacting a few magazines to see if they would be interested in doing an article about facial palsy and how it affects people, largely because quite a lot of people who have read my blog have suggested it should have a wider audience. We shall see!

evening

trying to keep the characters low, you see

Very successfully, if I may make so bold, Mr Shed

<nods>

Look!  I'm being even more economical

I think it would make a good magazine feature as it's something which can have many reasons behind it.  Who knows which of us may be affected.  There was a young girl on Don't Tell The Bride (sorry but I can't resist) with a facial palsy which she'd had from birth, it was quite severe but she certainly didn't shy away with it and was the life and soul of the bridal party.  The bride was a real misery though!

Good nodding there, TP!

Most of the people in my Facial Palsy support group have palsy as a result of acoustic neuroma (I'd never heard of it before - it's a benign tumour in the ear area and treatment usually results in damage or loss of the facial nerve.), although there are some people who have had Bell's Palsy, There's one woman who was born without the facial nerve on the left side of her face. I'm certainly finding out a lot about the causes of facial palsy, that's for sure!

Don't suppose I'd ever given it much thought apart from my dad who had a palsy as the result of his stroke but that was kind of the least of the resulting problems for him. 

I'm watching the programme on the cruise ship which sank.  Don't be thinking I'll be filming on my mobile for the benefit of the telly if the same happens to me!

31/01/2012 at 20:52

I suspect most people don't think about it unless/until it affects either them or someone close to them.

Episode 2 of Bad Girls - LD seems to be enjoying it. I think it reminds her of when she did voluntary work in a prison in Bristol, when she was a student there.

31/01/2012 at 20:56
Bad Girls was great.  I didn't see the first series though.  I've never been in a prison and hope never to change that.  They look scarey.
31/01/2012 at 20:59

And so noisy! Constant shouting and clattering, all through the night. I hope never to be there in any capacity!

I have found a task I can help LD's employers with LD linked to their latest newsletter and I spotted some greengrocer's apostrophes...heinous crime!

31/01/2012 at 21:05
Tsk tsk!  I hope you instigated a cull of the offending articles.
31/01/2012 at 21:08

I think I shall be proof-reading before issues are published in future

At last, a task which allows me to give free rein to both my inner- and outer-pedants!!!

31/01/2012 at 22:44

I have been to a number of prisons - not generally that nice

 Chris ('Stalker') Walker is a top UK motorcyclist (British and World superbikes), although a little long in the tooth these days. I recall him having a bit of Bell's palsy many years ago as he was tearing round the tracks. Quite a character and very high profile (at least in the motorsport world)

31/01/2012 at 22:49
I trust your prison visits have all been in a professional capacity PS?

Wouldnt have had youbdown as a bikist. Motorbikes scare me but I am a bit of a wuss these days.
