Lily P breathe x I'm sure you'll get it sorted out eventually 

I paid for a mining survey when we planned to buy this house ..result a letter saying no mining for the last 25 yrs and none planned   ...I blinking knew that I worked for British Coal when they shut the pits around here   or the NCB as I prefer to remember it by.  What I wanted to know was if they had mined under "our" house, I doubted it as a railway nearby but wanted to know for insurance purposes.

Fairy I love monochrome especially some that David has posted of buildings. I did some decent ones last year of swans  and ice. Best I think I've ever done. Dunno what I have done with my camera but I'm poor at stuff other than close up, it used to be ok.

Natures anti inflammatory medicines

Lily your G.P can offer an alternative to Aspirin that has the same qualities, mum can't take aspirin due to stomach surgery years ago she is prescribed something else. 

Garlic is good as a decongestant and as an antibiotic if eaten raw. Also believed to help with bad Cholesterol 

Black cherries if you can get them are great for helping Gout, red not so, or that's what a Spanish G.P told my friend who now eats them daily, sadly tinned in syrup but gout tablets no longer needed.

For arthritic complaints even though G.P poo pood my O/H finds taking Green lipped mussel tablets a well as cod liver oil help him.

We can but try 

Wine works for me

Thanks for the kind words said about my mum and things to contemplate  

Dove I hope your mum was having a happy day. Re; coats mum doesn't wear fitted any more due to curvature of her back and we try to get coats with hoods that are flattering ..however a Parka isn't quite mum as much as she liked them they'd fit below her knees  

 Lesley spot on with the walking stick 

Liri I hope mum settles well tonight x

Today has been a wet dull and misty day 10C..this day last year was sunny and bright and we had a lovely walk. So tonight us KEF's are spending our anniversary snuggled up in the lounge with heating on and having a curry delivered  Some episodes of Prime Suspect to watch we celebrated 34 yrs !!   we should have married in the summer 

Have a good evening all
