Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

My mother had the Be Ro book..... I have always liked Delia but the more I read of old cooking the more I like to try out their little ideas. Dorothy Hartley is the favourite at the moment. Main job this today is making myself acceptable to the ladies who will be taking my clothes off later..... I ...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Maz, Attendance Allowance isn't about attending hospital, it's a benefit which goes towards paying for someone to attend to you if you need care at home. I'm sure that all Stanley has done is to send for the forms to fill in if he needs to, which is very wise considering his age ... cancer or no ca...

Same here Maz. I don't do cards and I give presents during the year when people least expect them. Much more of a good surprise that way.
And I do that too.

I do not give presents to receive in return. The pleasure is in the giving. My c...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Art and a late lunch with friends. Bob is out this evening, so its feet up and chill out watching TV. Mind you I would probably do the same if he was in. With Christmas presents bought, or nearly, I may turn my mind to planning my Christmas cards. I usually use Vista Print to print one of my winter ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

any diagnosis should have been based on a a starvation blood test and not after a full lunch not 45 mintes before! The hba1c test that I have doesn't require fasting as it works by getting 'information' from blood cells rather than the glucose levels in my blood. Apparently that is the test they do...

Swimming this morning and hairdressers this afternoon. Thats it for today. I may plant some potatoes that have started to sprout, I doubt they will come to much . The garden pond is looking very sad but no evidence of the source of the leak yet

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Woke up several times in the night with pain in my old fracture site ( upper left shoulder/humerus). Finally gave in at 3am and took Paracetamol, which did very little. Obviously using the sewing machine has awakened the old injury. I sewed for about 3 hours today but then packed it in, hoping to r...

I have just bought a new car. December delivery. It was a bit like the story of the three bears. Mini 1 too small, Mini Clubman too wide for the garage doorway, Mini Countryman just right. We even tried it in the garage on my test drive, well the salesman did, he was a bit nervous as the test drive ...

Sorry to hear that Stanley, but staying positive is so important, there is strong evidence to support this. Good for the flu jab too.

Craft today, then a visit to Burnley cemetery, as we couldn’t go on the 4 th. Then a meal with friends before wine tasting this evening. It looks like our garden pond has sprung a leak after Bob and Adam hauled out the massive growth of pond plants that were filling the whole thing. We are a bit unh...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Glad to hear that Stanley. Its good when you have a GP that relates to you, and vice versa. Some of the newer ones have a good ‘bedside manner’ as more is done about this in the training than used to be.
