I'm not even sure that the animal in the photo is a dog
Coco, that sounds utterly ridiculous - especially as the room is actually available. I vote for Chuggy's solution.
Chuggy, 'SCS' is spinal cord stimulator, the device that I tried. There are many people being referred for the same, many of them waiting for months/years and/or getting very poor care when it actually happens.
Podds, my thoughts exactly re the soup maker. Unless Spence or tubs have got Jamie Oliver in their kitchen - in which case they have my deepest sympathy!
Tubs, you are right that it seems that we have to push for everything these days. I am a member of the UK SCS FB group and the tales of poor care make me ashamed to have been a nurse Even where individual staff members have been helpful and caring, the system is such that years of waiting seems to be the norm.
Jenni, I hope those germs leave you alone PDQ.
MS actually managed to stay in bed until around 6am today, that's the first unbroken night he's had for almost 2 weeks.
(((Larry))) Ouchy indeed! Well done on your continuing AA recovery BTW.
~~((DL))~~ It sounds as if you have the measure of the various agencies who are being paid to help FC6. I hadn't realised that she is not a native English speaker, are there any other little challenges you forgot to mention?
Meldy, it has taken you long enough to surrender but it's good to see that the GPO has finally asserted his authority.
Sorry, I can't remember what else I read yesterday before my lost post.
Glad to hear that HL is predicted to make a full recovery.
Well PRd Onesie! That's a great start and gives you a target to beat.
A WAISTerfest sounds like a very good idea.
MS is still coughing but feeling a bit better in himself, he's w*rking today. We went to a charity quiz on Friday (with bff, her hubby and some other friends of theirs), we came in 3rd out of about 20 tables - and MS won the 'heads or tails' game and pocketed £25!
Podds - dogs! Well done to you and your mentees. When will they get to know their results?
(((Tubs and Bram)))
(((TT and Snaily))) I think it sounds a good idea to stipulate contact only via sols - unless that would push the bill up to - even more - astronomical levels
DL, glad you enjoyed the SCD show, I love the TV prog and have always wondered whether the roadshow is any good. Also glad to hear that OH and FC6 got on well, that's a very good start.
Meldy, we had a 'Beko' washing machine put in when the kitchen was done, our builder recommended it as he has one of the same make. It has some good programs and we are pleased with it - but it is early days yet.
NR, I absolutely agree with Yummity (I have a professional background but not the personal experience of the 'Big C'), weighing once a week is more than enough. Even without that, you will know if clothes are getting loose etc.
(((Pipps))) I hope the toof is feeling better today.
Coco, I think you are wise to look at building long-term good habits rather than looking for short-term gains - in weight loss as with running.
Having started to improve, MS was really unwell again yesterday. He saw the GP last evening and is now on a course of steroids for an exacerbation of his asthma. I'm feeling quite a lot better and even , almost, have a voice. I skipped aquagym but managed to take SM shopping. We are supposed to be out at a quiz this evening, don't think MS will make it though
I tried to put a 'smiley' in the para above and now something very strange has happened to the post! I don't know whether it will disappear when it is posted...
