All good so far …


New phone seems to working well. It’s not taken too long to get used to, but I’ve not used all the features yet. As I thought, I needed to get a new, smaller sim card. Fortunately, we were going to Harrogate on the day my phone was due to arrive. I thought it would be … Continue reading All good so far …

Full of cold …


Yep, I'm full of cold. It started with a bit of a cough at the beginning of the week and it's now reached the 'messy' stage. Problem is, that on Saturday, we are all going for our annual 'flu jab'. I've been told, that with any prosthetic heart valve, the flu vaccination is a very good, … Continue reading Full of cold …

Both K*** and I had this fear that it might cause a problem for the driver on his way in … Continue reading It’s been a while

My appointment was at 12:30, and we got there about 12:15. The Staff Nurse (I think she was the Staff Nurse) went over a few points before … Continue reading Life changer + 17

I've probably had it since I was born, but it was only noticed about 8 years ago. Since then, I have been … Continue reading Life changing day . . . .
