The NHS is great when it works but, unfortunately, that depends a lot on where you are and who's running your service. FIL had a dreadful time - not being diagnosed for eye troubles which led to him being almost blind, not being diagnosed for lung cancer so a rapid and painful decline when it was too late to help, MIL not being diagnosed with dementia - only got that sorted and FIL's stuff after a visit to us in Belgium and I had to get the other SIL/DIL on the case - home helps, day care and so on and she lives 200 miles away but did go down and sort stuff.
60k sounds a bit excessive, even with lots of kit. I am discovering I may have too many spices....
Your cottage kitchen looks very calm and pretty without being frilly. Went for dinner in Austin, Texas once with a colleague of OH when he was there for 4 months in 1988 and she had adopted the whole frontier style - patchwork, gingham, swags, hearts and bows everywhere. Antidote to her OH perhaps - hunter, shooter, fisher who drove round with a rifle strapped to his Ute and liked to be in bed by 10pm. Been abroad once, in the early 80s and thought London was mad because he couldn't get dinner at 6pm and too much traffic.
Wonky needs to take lots of photos and mark pieces with a good marker pen.
