The funny thing is, she chose it all. I'm on strike now till after Christmas. Whilst this was going on, I decided to run a network cable in to speed stuff up in the lounge. Ran t all in (lot of work). Tested it - duff cable . Effin Amazon. Stripped another 20 metres off to test - also duff, break in the same core. Guess it was stretched in manufacture or overwound.

Well, my other daughter (inspired not a little I suspect by the fact that her sister works for Save the Children) and a bunch of her friends organised a charity walk in Cyprus and raised about £42k. Not bad IMO.

Wow, talk about a critical hit...
My wife knocked over a glass of water on:
TV remote.
Amazon Fire remote and controller
Xbox one controller
Soundbar controller
Aaaaasnnnnd her iPad.

So my kitchen windowsill has suddenly grown lots of controllers and battery packs. Couple of days should be ok but all the same, what a shot!

I knew consoles could be dangerous but the BBC reckon that Russia's activities in the ME could drag us all into world war Wiii. Would U ever have thought it?
They've fixed it. It now reads will.

So, a friend of mine is looking after his dad who is EOL. The poor old guy can't even get into bed, he sleeps in a chair. He is also looking after someone else's dog. Anyway, the old guy falls out of the chair during the night. The dog comes to my friends room and wakes him up,to let him know. Amazing, it's not even their dog!

So, my wife went into hospital today. Normally she goes in for two weeks, we were due to go on our first holiday in a looonnnnggg time in 1 week.
She went into the new Southmead hospital in Bristol. There is a huge atrium in the middle. I kid you not, there was a guy in full dress playing a Baby Grand piano in the atrium. What the f.... Are the NHS doing with our money.

Sorry to hear your Wife is unwell @Sorethumbed. Hope she's soon mended and you can get away for a break.

As for the piano player....words fail me!

Meanwhile she's in an area where she has moved beds six times in 5 days. They're sending her home tomorrow, we then have to make a 70 mile round trip four times a day (every 6 hours) for a week. There are no beds. People are in the corridors behind screens. I have no idea what's happened to hospitals in the last 12 months. This isn't down to this government, it takes about 10 years to plan/build a hospital.

The plan was to build one 'super hospital' to replace the two main hospitals (with less beds), close the two main hospitals and build cottage hospitals to take patients from the 'super hospitals' after 3 days and all of this done with private money (Ie the NHS doesn't own the hospitals - they rent them). Great idea. The new hospital was built, the two old main hospitals were closed. No private money came forwards for the cottage hospitals so they weren't built. Result, one brand new hospital with less beds than were needed 10 years ago and no parking. Effing chaos.

That indeed sounds like some kind of weird horror comedy!? Hope your wife is getting better!

Not in the head!

@JamesGoblin: Thanks, she's out of hospital now but not really fixed. The final count was 8 room changes in 14 days. If there was an NHS record for it, I think it just got broken 😚😚

Well, my mum died about 12 years ago now. I found it difficult to deal with some of the personal posessions so I just boxed them up and brought them south with me in the car. I was having a clearout the other day and came across this stuff (I'd forgotten all about it) and in amongst it were some of my grandfathers stuff from the second world war including a beautiful letter from someone in North Wales thanking my grandfather for looking after her husband during the war along with a silver cigarette case (An obviously expensive gift at that time). I have no idea what he did and there is noone left to ask. He wasn't a medic (radio operator) so the looking after wasn't that. Talk about frustrating.

Could you trace anything from the person who sent the letter? Sounds like a fascinating tale to unravel!

@Red620Ti: Very difficult, the letter is over 70 years old. The address just says 'North Wales'. Im going to try contacting his regiment to see if they can give me any leads as to who he served with in the war that might be from North Wales. There cant have been many groups with someone from North Wales and someone from north Scotland. Like many of his generation, he never talked about his service. Whenever I asked, we always wound up taling about fishing. I'm fascinated.

You know those semi-waking dreams that you have that are influenced by something in the environment? Well this morning I was dreaming about being attacked by birds. Rolled over and there was a newly fledged wren sitting on my radiator making a hell of a racket. Little sod had pooed on the carpet and window sill as well. Had a hell of a job geting him out of the room uninjured.
