Natures anti inflammatory medicines

Posted: 22/04/2016 at 22:40

My mother's English chemist recommended tablets for her arthritis (years ago, she's no longer with us) which contained glucosamine and green lipped mussels. He never asked her if she was allergic to shellfish. She was allergic to mussels. She came to stay with me in France and she was quite unwell and had a rash. I took her to my French GP who said she had an allergy and asked to see her medicines.

Recently I asked my French pharmacist for something for arthritis and he recommended the same sort of thing. He didn't ask if I was allergic either (I'm not). Don't pharmacists have any training in doling out medicines?

Back from daughter's. I babysat on Thursday as daughter took her OH out to dinner for his birthday present at Gordon Ramsey's restaurant in Bordeaux.

Daughter lives 1h15 from me, it was 15° and dry, OH says it rained here and was 12°.

I am getting seriously panicked. At least DD has until June to sort her garden, I have until the 8th May and either it's raining or I'm doing something else. Only came back from England last week, tomorrow going to a Saint George's Day lunch, Sunday church followed by a lunch, Monday a workshop on bereavement that I was asked to take part in as I was bereaved (wishing I'd refused). Tuesday a friend is coming to help me weed and the forecast is rain.

Plumber came, 2 hours late, only to tell me he is coming back on Tuesday morning.

We've been to supermarket, raining so not a gardening day, but I met a friend in the SM who offered to come and help me weed on Tuesday afternoon.

So...............

Each to his/her own. Lyn, you are a very talented gardener and Steve was a teacher. Can't be good at everything. I like music but I can't sing or play anything. Thank goodness we all have different talents and personalities.

Morning all.

The plumber is now 1h40 late. His wife says she'll try to contact him as we are going out at lunch time. Here in France I'm an hour ahead. This is the plumber's third appointment for the blocked loo. Don't think he wants to do it and he knows it's not our only loo. I think a grandchild has thrown a soft toy in it.

This evening I am babysitting 2 small grandchildren. It's SIL's birthday and daughter is taking him out to dinner. I'm staying until after lunch tomorrow as it's grandson's 5th birthday tomorrow.

Mine's not battery operated, but I have it on a lower shelf in the shade. My potting area is in the GH. More convenient.
