I have Tesco deliveries.. I never tick substitutes. Didnít get my Magnum on last order.. I prefer to step inside a store.. At least you can pick fruit and veg that is decent.
Was that a 357 or a 44?

Well I'm dead happy. Two squirrels showed up today. One shy and a bit skinny, the other big and bold so I'm figuring they're the same two born earlier in the year who had the same characteristics. At least they're both still alive and together...I  like to think.

That's nice for you Zoony. Red or Grey? Are you going to feed the skinny one up so it gets through the Winter OK?  8)

They're greys but I'm not prejudiced..I'll feed 'em both up for the winter but I'll find some fatty treats for the puny one. Just relieved to see them again as it's been a while.

I see both red and grey in the forest, they run up a tree as soon as they see Dageus and make these wee screechy noises at him lol.

I'm not surprised...I'd run too if I saw a hairy, slavering monster 20 times my size looking at me like dinner.. ;D

Well I've done exactly what I've been doing for the last few days, and that's nothing in particular, my hip/leg problem has reoccurred, It has been suggested that sciatica could be the problem, my pain is mainly in the hip area and down to the knee, very painful and paracetamol doesn't seem to make any difference, it hurts like hell and almost impossible to get any comfort, simple tasks like putting my socks or shoes on are a challenge, I can bend over and I can bend my knee, but both together no way.

We had crispy duck sent in by deliveroo and it was a great success. Far too much for two people so there is enough for lunch tomorrow.

Managed to cut the front grass, but now a problem with the mower. Waiting for a call back = obviously not tonight!

You have my sympathy Coastal, same thing has happened to me my last years leg injury has flaired up again together with lower back arthritis and what you describe as sciatica, blooming painful and difficult to know what to do to get comfortable.  I did manage a small walk but had to use my walking stick.  As you say paracetamol doesn't seem to work, but I was told you need to take them four times a day for a couple of days before they are really effective.  I do hope you get better soon, miserable business isn't it?

Co-Codamol (DF118) always helped me but the docs are reluctant to prescribe it because, naturally, all us oldies are codeine addicts..

One of my problems is that I'm on Statins, Thyroxin and Warfarin, so anything other than Paracetamol and I have to check first, due to the Warfarin I can't even take Asprin, and to be honest I don't want to add to the list unless it's absolutely necessary.


As for takeaways, I've NEVER had one delivered, and following all the recent ads, what type of food is Wagga-something?

Painful leg has kept me prisoner for more than 4 years...at first I could not walk at all. I am allergic to pain killers....and used so many creams and lotions to no avail. Amazon did well out of me....I now go to a chiropodist and have regular massage. Started going every week, then forthnightly and now every three weeks. Eventually I shall go once a month for maintenance...I can only go because Jenny is taking me. A taxi there and back would be £50..... :'( :'( Living out in the country is not always the best....I have a walking stick, very strong metal ! Made in Scotland. It is height adjustable. Then I have a wheelchair for outings...used once ! as it needs someone to take me out in it.... a Zimmer.... :'( My best item is a "Rollator" It is a pushing 4 wheeled item, with a seat and handbrakes. It is amazing and I can walk with it ANYWHERE !  Also, apart from taking most of my weight, it allows me to walk with little pain. It also exercises my leg muscles...I would NOT be without it ! gmx    ps. I do not take any pain killers. I do take 1.25mg tiny tablet of Bisoporol Fumarate..to prevent blood cloths. The doctor said, I'll give you Warfarin to take. I said: I am not a rat.! You take it ! So I have been on this dose and keep away from doctors as much as possible. ;)

Dentist today.. My filling has broken away and though it doesn't give me any pain at the moment I know that it is sitting there waiting for the right (night) time..


The dentist will carry out temporary work on it.. They will not let you use their toilet..
I feel for those who are nervous when visiting the dentist.. :o
