Fidget ((hugs))  Hope nothing too ominous is revealed and that a bit of rest and/or physio will sort him out quickly.

Just a thought - when I had some upper back/neck problems, because I had to drive as part of my job, my employer paid for work station assessments which included an assessment of the positioning and adjustment of my car seat.  You'd think it'd be common sense how to adjust it to get it right, but once the physio had adjusted it properly I experienced a huge improvement.

Grow Your Own Mushroom Advent Calendar

Posted: 02/12/2016 at 09:53

Back in the 1950s when it was very much a new thing in the UK Ma grew mushrooms in a small shed on the farm as a commercial venture -  the experiment didn't last for long.  I think back then there just wasn't the demand - mushrooms were regarded with some suspicion back then and farmed mushrooms even more so - it wasn't until a few years later that the industry 'took off' (see what I did there ) utilising the huge hangars vacated by the RAF on East Anglian wartime aerodromes.

However growing them just for us something I've often been tempted to do and I know OH is interested ... we'll watch this thread

Clari - what a great card   Take care of yourself and get family to impress on your OH that if you (and he) don't keep warm you (and he) are very likely to be ill .............. and then you will both be in a mess   Some blokes seem to think that it's a case of 'mind over matter' whether these things affect you ........... it is not!  It's plain facts and common sense - bodies work best if they're kept at a reasonable temperature.  

DD ((hugs)) don't forget to eat and drink will you 

Chicky, have a lovely evening

Hello all - I'm back - more hair on the salon floor than there is left on my head  
A bit of light shopping done too - and my Boots points have been spent on my favourite perfume 

Two herrings from a fish stall on the market for supper, they'll be wrapped in streaky bacon, then baked and eaten with jacket potatoes and fennel and orange salad and celeriac remoulade. 

Clari - ask your OH if he's read Aristophanes' Lysistrata ........ if he hasn't tell him you'll get him one for Christmas
