Hi all.

Back at home this weekend, which is lovely.

The news is not good, so I am rather down at the moment, I will tell you about it, when i am feeling more chatty.

Love to all.

I know how much you girlies like your cats, so these are the rare and very elusive Wildcats, photographed in Botswana.

OOOOoops, wrong photo

Hi all.

How does anyone ever sleep in these places, no wonder everyone is ill?

I am with Dove on the food choices.

Hi all.

Lovely to read all your "witterings", almost keeping me sane.

No real progress at the moment and still really breathless, but they are looking after me really well, although ignoring my requests to go home and come in daily. I am of course doing as i am told

Really despondent to read about Jared O'Mara, the Labour MP for Hallam [ my costituency ]

He is the first Labour MP we have ever had and I campaigned tirelessly for him. To say I feel let down is an understatement.

As for Malaria, having taken various different meds., over many years, all i would say, is that if you have a Travel Health Clinic near you, I would use it.

Malarial resistance patterns are changing all the time and the correct drugs for you also depend upon other medications you may be taking.

Hi all.

Sat in the hospital day room with the other "victims", waiting for the days tests and to start sorting some treatment for the breathlessness.

Thanks for the advice, I had been thinking of trying to get her to go on a spa weekend with her best mate, so maybe I shall try and get that organised.

Problem is, she is ex trade and fully aware of potential problems and worries what will happen, if things go pear shaped and she is not here.

Hi all.

Very sorry i missed some important birthdays, please forgive me.

Weekend tucked up in bed, with minimal wanderings, can walk about 100 yards before i get very short of breath.

Back into hospital tomorrow.

I hope you don't mind, but I need some advice and in my experience, you lot seem very good at it.

I am concerned about OH, she really needed the holiday and of course did not get it, plus having the stress of organising doctors and insurance companies.

Now we are back, i am either going to be a patient, or will be about as much use as a chocolate fire gaurd.

I need to do something to help her relax, do some chilling, but I don't really know how I can do this.

I would really value the opinions of my friends on here.

Hi all.

Home for the weekend. 

Lots of pillows plumped up on the bed and the weekend papers to read.

Hope you all have a good one.

Bit like giving Trump the Nobel Peace Prize.

I agree with Nut [ I usually do ]

It does not have the right shape for Pinus mugo, whose many cultivars have a lovely shape.
