jobseekers allowance

Sometimes you don't qualify for an allowance but still need to sign on until state pension age to have your national insurance contributions made so you get that.

Tickets for several of them. Just wish England would ditch some of the old Faithful that never perform internationally.

WTF is happening

Peter, read again, the point I made is skivers are in both private and public sectors, however they are easier to handle and get rid of in the private, whether that is because of strong unions or lax management. Also if your wife brings work home she needs time management, it's not necessary.

Anyone who regularly brings work home needs an assistant, not better time management.

I don't suppose that applies to teachers who already work 7 30 to 5 30 then bring marking, report writing, special need assessment reports etc home. Of course not as teachers are lazy overpaid skivers who are easy to criticise but few people are willing to give up their own, far more difficult, careers to improve the lot of the next generation.

Thanks Little Miss guess if you're talking marathons and IM you don't struggle after 25 mins then, there's  hope for me yet. I have my review coming up so will discuss with my nurse.

Ooh hello snail  happy bank holiday! you may wish you hadn't confessed to being an asthma nurse   I am similar to above. Pretty sure with hindsight that I have had exercise induced asthma for a while but it really developed post pneumonia 12 months ago. On steroid and salmetarol now so OK for most day to day stuff but still suffer about 25 mins into a run unless going really slowly. Take salbutamol before and prob a couple of times in an hours run but then generally settles after that. Is this best management I can expect or will I be able to improve? Unfortunately I was never very fast about 9 30 min miler but now even slower any advice welcome

Thanks for the link Little Miss it confirms lots of what I thought. She has a repeat test in about 5 weeks so hoping for something a bit more definite. 

Good luck to everyone 

Underactive thyroid

Little Miss are you based in England? We are fighting this issue at the moment with my daughter TSH 4.8, was 3.7 eight months ago with low T4 loads of symptoms that she has been to docs with over last few months now depression hair loss as well as obvious ones. I had my thyroid removed due to cancer 20+ years ago but doc still says wouldn't treat as thyroid until TSH is 10 yet it looks like textbook symptoms to me.

What's the best spectator sport?

+1 rugby league especially in the grounds where spectators are right on the edge of the pitch and you can hear the tackles.
