Hope he doesn't get the double dose I've had. Plus the 2 day sickness bug last week.
I'm not getting any younger you know !!

Yes we know you will soon be in the 'Old Fart Brigade'
Welcome !!

For me it depends what the person had done and was it more than once.

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
