Roger from CLR is calling round Tuesday teatime. He's just called me  :)

Yes he was on the ball coming to daughters as well.
Hope you get sorted without winning the Lottery  ;)

Younger ones can take a peek as well ;)

A Love Story

I will seek and find you.

I shall take you to bed and have my way with you.

I will make you ache, shake & sweat until you moan & groan.

I will make you beg for mercy, beg for me to stop.

I will exhaust you to the point that you will be relieved when I'm finished with you.

And, when I am finished, you will be weak for days.

All my love,

The Flu

Now get your mind out of the gutter and go get your flu shot!

Chesterfield Discussion / Natacha Engel

Natacha and co were collecting signatures on a petition round our village on Saturday.
Something to do with a back bencher - and Social Care, I think hubby said it was linked to the NHS.
Sorry it's a bit vague folks, I haven't heard anything about this and thought someone could enlighten me.

Looks as if later they all enjoyed some chips from village chippy as Natacha was in front of me in the queue.

I have found their are two types of people when out with a disables person.
There are those who totally ignore the disabled person and those who recognize the disabled person is there and may need a helping hand and actually 'offer to help'

I left messages on two mobiles and neither got back to me.
Another one came out and was supposing to be emailing me the quote but I never got it.

I have to say Roger was prompt and I got a full breakdown in the quote.
He came with two others and it was done over two days so I suppose with labour and materials the price was ok.
It's nothing fancy but it does what we want it too.

Let me know how it goes Barry.
Remember Roger won't know me as old cruser  :))

I have heard many stories like your ironsky. Very sad and devastating for families.
People with mental health problems were originally neglected in the ESA assessment and it was/still is extremely difficult to gain any points.
Blind and partially sighted were treated no better.

I have to admit that maybe things have improved a little but trying to put into words how mental health affects peoples daily lives can be extremely difficult and to match up with the one descriptor to give enough evidence or gain any points to be put into the support group may well be a none starter. So the best the person may end up with is the WRAG ( work related activity group ) where they would have to attend interviews and for many with M/H problems this will fill them with horror as going out and mixing can be very difficult.
If they manage to get into this group they can only stay in it for 1 year and then have to go to the Job Centre.   

I am so sorry to hear of your friends story ironsky and hope he/she finds peace in their long sleep

I parked at the back today and it's still closed.

As a by the way does anyone know if they can actually legally charge for parking on there.
The machine is the type where we have to put in the cars full registration number.
There is even a camera and presuming it works it clocks you in and out

Yup drives can be costly.
I had mine done when we moved there, fortunately it had a dropped curb.

Minor things like signage and access design  need need planning but even if they are turned down they can appeal to higher bodies. Shops and pubs are licensed retail premises so they don't need to go through the hassle of change of use.

So we may well have a change of name for our town then

Tescofield - market town of the Crooked Spire and Tesco's!!

Politics / Re: Voting Conservative

It's a cartoon Pete but again it's a political party (I assume Labour) telling me why I shouldn't vote for someone. It's almost an admission that they aren't any better just not quite as bad. OC I'm sorry about yours and your daughters issues but I suspect you are in the minority of people wrongly caught up in this.

Seems to be a lot of it around from what I heard off other disabled people JR.
I just think that it has been done too fast and very harsh which is why the innocents get in this.
There other concerns though about other issues which the current party are doing.

All of the parties tell us why we shouldn't vote for the others, they just play mind games don't they.

I like that Pam.  Glad you posted actually as I want a bit of work doing.  Will have to leave to the Spring now, but handy knowing someone for future reference.

Sorry Gerty another senior moment it's CLR landscapes !  :-[
