    Getting a ultrasound scan and x-rays done at the radiology shop on my left knee this morning, to many snap, crackles and pops coming from it for my GP's liking.

    Good luck with knee. 88 year old MIL is with us after having knee replacement last Thursday - remarkably mobile already really. Hope you don't need that but at least gives hope however bad the results.

    Thanks Ian, there has been an epidemic of hip and knee replacements at the bowls club I am a member of.

    Gunna get a bowling arm and start practising with it to save me bending down.

    5.7 at 0700hrs despite restless night - combination of listening to dogs & cat growling at Hamish, our cute hedgehog lodger, who was stomping around garden - very active - and backache.

    5.7 this morning. Granddaughter eventually got an antibiotic and went back to school yesterday. Poor Roddy is struggling with his asthma still. He’s ok if he’s taking antibiotics and steroids. He’s going for an X-ray today and sputum specimen has been sent to the lab. Let’s hope this latest antibiotic will sort it out. Thanks for asking Ian.

    Hope all gets sorted with Roddy - I'm assuming that's Mr McD -. No thanks needed, even this stony heart is melted by the McDowell magic loveliness dust.
