We both said we would not have eaten the spider - but I'd rather have had the chicken dinner than the profiteroles.

I thought it was an age thing but it turned out to be very underactive thyroid - I had several thyroid level tests which all came back 'within normal range' but then it went right down - so much better now

Yay Fidget! 

Wasn't her joy absolutely lovely last night - so pleased for her - we knew nothing about her before Celeb, but she's been an absolute delight - sensible, straightforward and fun - I knew she'd won the day she got into that harness and got the stuff out of those boxes on that big wall/grid thing.  Totally unafraid and totally focussed.  I hope she really benefits from winning.

Hosta, look at it this way - at least you know exactly the sort of movements/exercise that trigger problems with your knee - you'll be able to tell the medics

I think the 'low feeling' is probably related to your low iron levels rather than the tablets themselves  - it can take quite a while for iron tablets to have the required effect.  Treat yourself gently ((hugs)) and if you still feel rotten in a little while then tell the doctor - it's what they're for


Hmmm just a thought - have you had your thyroid levels checked?

Help please.

I would contact the magazine via one of emails/phone numbers shown here - not sure which one but I'm sure whichever you try will point you in the right direction

My Under Gardener has enquired what he should get me for Christmas - I have wracked my brains for something I really want ........ and I put in my request today - good body/hand lotion and a Voucher for materials and Under Gardener's Labour  to build new compost bins and a pergola / trellis   in the area near where the tree was felled to screen the utility area


What do you really want for Christmas?

Good morning all G'day Pat

Damp and dreary outside - I'm going to head into the city in a bit to get my hair cut and finish the present buying.  Son's and OH's birthdays happen between now and Christmas
