Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Lyn, on a practical note - have you had an OT home assessment lately - there are all sorts of ways of solving the bedding problem (well, making it easier anyway), slide  sheets etc.

........  Some one sent me a little card that said:

The Good Lord doesnt send anthing that he thinks you cant handle' or words to that effect, 

I wonder if he can come and get my mum out of the bed so I can wash the sheets befoore I go shopping, cos I cant!.  Sorry if I offend anyone xx

Oh Lyn ((many hugs)) - that makes me so angry - Ma has said it all her life, and it's the reason she didn't see the need to get her hips done!!!   Now she's virtually immobile, in horrendous pain and doped up to the eyeballs on painkillers which are affecting her brain function (amongs other things) ... I am so so angry when I think about it ... and so so sad xx

I asked for a meeting with the Principal of the art school and my tutor - she kept denying that she had my draft - I saw she had her big leather bag by her chair and asked if there was a purple folder in it and if so would she take it out and see what it was .......... Nuff said !!!  

My Diss was marked as if I'd had no tutorial input and then I  had to do a Viva !!!  I got a high 2:1 so I was happy in the end but it was a traumatic time!

 BitterKnitter - it's on it's way .... good luck with the Diss - SIL is suffering at the moment too - I suffered a long while ago - my Diss tutor 'forgot' she had my second draft and went to Italy for a month !!! (before we were all using computers!)

Hi BitterK - good to see you  hope the uni work is going well.  Think everyone here is ok - usual ups and downs of course, but that's life isn't it?

Panda, glad you and friend are having a lovely time - warming vodka sounds .... medicinal

Hi Fg  - not much warmer down here


Whoever I' ve missed - Hi

Indoor hyacinths - are they ready for some light??

I like to get them a couple of inches tall, so that the flower bud has emerged from the bulb - otherwise my experience is that sometimes the flower spike is distorted.
