Re: November... Winter Draws on.

Hi... Only just found your post. (excuse chocolate stains on keyboard - I unearthed a chockice from the freezer and the chocolate coating crumbled) Electrickery and Drainage should be easy (I shouldn't say that .....?) But what about the water supply? My Wash m/c is prehistoric. It needs hot and col...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

Presumably, it is a case of: Lecktrickery Socket wired in, Water supply (perhaps Hot and Cold, and used water Drainage - I suppose much depends of what of the original arrangements remain. There seems to be a Glut of "Handymen" - although I looked in Local newspaper and saw that most of then were "B...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

Hi! Delivering Prescriptions is a bit different to getting Doc to sign them. .. and Doc (GP) knows nothing about the Hosp record. However, a Nurse seems to be "Chief Sorter Outer" re Outpatient (Incl, Follow up's) Is being pressed by PALS. She has given me her first name and is aware of several prob...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

Without going into the Goey details... Answer is NO....... I was delayed in Basildon Hospital as The "Op" obviously was not as good as planned. I were kept there beyond the Depts hours, and some (previously not seen by me) did some work, showing me a Letter they had sent to my GP, and would get a Nu...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

Hi, Rwth. Not much occurring here. I'm too tied up with Medical Matters at present. In this little courtyard there seems to be a glut of money. Everyone seems to be outdoing each other in Hanging masses of coloured lights on their house-fronts. (whoops, pushed a wrong button and posted accidentally ...

Re: Octogre. The rain it raineth every day

Re: Octogre. The rain it raineth every day

Hi Rwth... Have you yet faced the " New Peets " Mustard posts? Actually " Successor to Peets " might be more accurate, but I seem to find many Lost contacts, so it's a good move. It is beginning to look that The Community Matron is not Directly involved with The Hospital but is Employed by the Local...

Hope you are OK ... Sorry - I'm a bit "out-of-touch" at present. (Back from Hospital, but trying to get hold of The Community Matron .

have never understook the bit about 1st (or more) relatives, or "twice removed". I'm pretty certain that I don't have any??

Re: Mists of Autumn fruitfullness

The main point (in my mind) about Nympsfield Long Barrow, is that I've never heard of it.. But a quick lurk tells me a little of it. Obvious Historic - or pre Historic - Interest. Perhaps it is good that few people know of Ancient history, and thus keeping it intact and secure. I note that it is nea...

Oddly, I've had a phone call re Washing machine.. Some supplier or other (?) heard that I had a washing machine that is three years old it was - I would have thought that it was hardly thought-provoking...
