Re: November... Winter Draws on.

I once saw a van which I assumed belonged to someone in a franchise called Handy Home Husband. Electricity and drainage already present. Just a clever builder to move a unit from under the worktop, so that machine can be extracted and moved into position. If it doesn't work and can't be repaired it ...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

I was keeping stuff in the futility room and had to clear it out so they could lay the vinyl flooring. Now the room is ready to shift the machine into, and I need a kitchen fitter to move one of the units so the machine can be unplumbed from the kitchen and plumbed into the new room. I had the discu...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

I remember in hospital some equipment the Occupational Therapist thought I needed was ordered and sent to my home. It was pretty quick, so it could have been delivered while you were in hospital. Just tell them you've received it now so they can cancel the repeat order. Making a list /spreadsheet sh...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

Another stage in my utility room metamorphosis today. The lino/vinyl floor so I have to shift the dogfood, vacuum cleaner etc out to leave the floor clear for operations. Now I can get a hero to move my washing machine and it's straight on 'til morning. Your communication problems between Hospital a...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

Have another go at PALS, and complain to Healthwatch for Essex that services aren't joined up. They may do a research project on it and address the Clinical Commissioning Group with a swingeing report. Patient Outcomes are the way to go. Somerset is pretty good, I can say. I had a letter from Lloyds...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

i live near Exmoor, and it's mostly a Dark Skies area. They don't much go for Christmas lights here, so se get a terrific view of the Milky Way, and the Moon. Sometimes you can see pale colours in the moonlight when it's full. There's someone on the hill near the Church who goes over the top with a ...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

I have just returned from posting a letter to my penfriend in Australia. I also washed two large bags of laundry in a bank of machines in a petrol station. I took Cassie for a walk in the woods then collecte the contents of the machines and drove home. Now having coffee and oatcake (with ground almo...

Re: November... Winter Draws on.

We had a storm or two over the weekend, Aiden then a spent hurricane. No fallen trees that I know of, just rain and the wormery lid stayed put. I'd emptied it and started again. I hate fireworks with a passion. Noisy and pointless. Lockdown again won't make much difference to me. Same old, same old.

Re: Octogre. The rain it raineth every day

I blame it on the state of Sociology, and paternalistic politics. Many of these organisations were responsible for protecting their finances, the Board's backs and the children last of all. Their standards of parenting assessment were too prescriptive for happiness. Supervised Access is a wonderful ...

Re: Octogre. The rain it raineth every day

nHello GLO Yes I'm fully engaged with New Peets but haven't posted there much. I see a fair number of people I haven't seen since Sues came to a horrible halt. Age Concern amalgamated with another organisation to become Age UK, but I don't think it is as good as either of the previous versions. The ...

Re: Octogre. The rain it raineth every day

Yes, I'm fine. I had a post on screen that I thought I had forgotten to post. Just a gremlin. Maybe the Community Matron is whizzy idea to raise standards in community public health. But they're pushing on an open door in my limited experience District nurses are very highly qualified and excellent ...

Octogre. The rain it raineth every day

Well it's raining now and most of the weekend, apparently.

I've had a call to my cousin whose adopted son is a father for the first time. I think the infant is first cousin twice removed.

Re: Mists of Autumn fruitfullness

My mother told me about American tractors, and how only people whose horses were on their last legs were interested. I think Ford's main problem was that they were trying to micro manage from a very long way off, just from the financial records. Cambridge Meet was funny. People wanted one, but nobod...

Re: Mists of Autumn fruitfullness

I've just come back from a day out on Nympsfield Long Barrow. A treat, meeting my sister and discussing old family history, Why my father was called Peter by the family. Other mysteries like why my sister gave me a cigarette on VE day. She remembered taking the paper off for me. Draws a veil over th...

Re: Mists of Autumn fruitfullness

It seems that like the NHS app, Essex is not fit for purpose. I downloaded it and it doesn't work. If your passport photo isn't wearing glasses it doesn't accept your identity. So I won't be using it. Have you got Covid or is it an excuse to strap you down? My car is back, mended and running. I took...

Re: Mists of Autumn fruitfullness

I'm almost paralysed by frozen technology. The intermittent fault on the car is probably the fuel pump, and I can't do anything about it until tomorrow at the earliest. After the RAC failed to find me at home on account of giving the contractor the wrong address, I sent them on their way rejoicing a...

Re: Mists of Autumn fruitfullness

We have a photography shop which sells and processes film because of the local camera clubs, but I do still have some Fuji film. It may be useable. I was never impressed by Kodak film which was always too bright for me. I do have two digital cameras, both Canon which I have always thought have the b...

Re: Mists of Autumn fruitfullness

I had a twin tub washing machine at first for about 10 years. I had to stand over it, spinning wet stuff while my neighbours did their gardening. I bought an automatic after that, which lasted about 15 years. The next one lasted another 15 - 20 years and died in the great appliance failure after my ...
