This is nothing compared to a lot of others ,but my mum of 83 has an appointment at the hospital , they have cancelled it a few times .we now have one at short notice for next week.  My Husband  cannot take her as he is needed elsewhere, so they say they can provide transport but only for her .I have to get a taxi and meet her there.it's usually a taxi that comes for my mum , it's just that because it's been paid for I am not allowed to go in the same one .!  

Last time they said I. Wasn't allowed to go with her in the same taxi I thought it was picking others up .but no just my mum ............ 

 

Granma - when you contact the hospital transport people tell them that the letter from the hospital says that your Mum must be accompanied.  If that doesn't work then contact the Consultant's secretary who sent the appointment letter and explain the problem.  I used to get this problem when working with people with severe disabilities - the transport department are given targets and have to stick by them - often the consultants don't know that they have to stipulate to the transport lot that the patient needs an escort. 

Good luck

Cat Poo on my raised veg beds

I make a cover of wire netting to protect seedlings etc in my raised beds - it keeps the cats off and the birds safe and lifts off easily when needed.

Tattoos

Posted: 20/03/2015 at 14:50

Afraid I'm not keen on tattoos and don't have any.  When I was about 15 I wanted to have my head shaved and have purple butterflies tattooed on my head, but fortunately I grew out of that

My son had a tattoo on his arm when he worked in the music business, but he regrets it now. 

If other people want tattoos it's entirely up to them, but it's not for me.

There's a video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msTl0S0sPLM of someone using an Azada - it may help you decide whether it's suitable for you

Eclipse

Really thick cloud cover here in Norfolk - not a chance of seeing it, but it's definitely darker - I need the lights on in the house.

Good morning Bekkie - need to switch the lights on here - but we've got such thick cloud cover there's no way of seeing the eclipse - a shame for all the school children who have gone to school all excited about it.
