Good morning all

A mild morning here 12.3C overnight - is the start of the warmer spell? 

Fingers crossed Yvie, for OH's eye, your eye and your Mum.  Sounds like she has a good GP

GWRS - Boston Mass. or Boston Lincs?

Clari - Steve has hit the nail on the head!!!  Tell the 'selfish child' to grow up - it doesn't matter if he doesn't like the food,it's your party not his, he doesn't have to eat anything if he doesn't like it,  all he has to do is be there.   If you like I'll speak to him  ......... or even better, Wonky will do it .......... she's much fiercer than me

Wonky ((hugs))  neither you nor hub will come to any harm letting the Chip Shop cook your dinner occasionally and it supports local business   Hope you're still sound asleep and have a good day ahead of you

Hi Katie

Just thought I'd flag up Malcolm's post re font size and the problems experienced by the partially sighted


Font size

 Hi Malcolm and welcome - I don't find that enlarging the font screws up the formatting - perhaps that's because I've downloaded an adblocker.  Perhaps you could try that?

I will flag this up to Katie who's working on re-vamping the site so that if there's anything that can be done to help, they know about it.

Of course it should be give and take, but even a bit more generous giving than taking is worthwhile for a quiet life - a bad relationship with neighbours can be a living hell.

Morning Hosta   Don't wear him out - he's got an important job next week!!!

DD, I've got a brain like a sponge - it's crammed full of stuff.  If I get like Ma and it all starts coming out in the wrong order, it's going to provide someone with a lot of amusement

Morning DD

Yvie ((hugs))  is there another hospital your mum could go to?  I can understand that she feels anxious about going back to where she had such an awful time. 

Towards the end Pa stated very firmly that he didn't want to go back into hospital and that whatever happened he wanted to remain at The Lovely Home - he said this to his GP and it was put in writing on his notes and on the computer system.  When he was taken poorly the GP and the Practice Nurses managed his symptoms and kept him comfortable.  If it was out of hours the Emergency Doctor who attended was shown a copy of the relevant papers on his file and all was done as he wanted.  However, it was known that he did not have long left. 

Good luck to your OH with his op.  Fingers crossed here for a very postive outcome
