    @ianpspurs What a coincidence my manager at the hospital I worked at was named Winstanley, can't say we where bosom buddies,ex army and he thought we were all his subordinates! I don't think!! it's the stubbornness in me I don't like being treated like a lackey ! K Any how how's the hot tub and the Prosecco going hope you've saved me some should get their before nightfall!! Haha!!K

    @JohnEGreen our grandson played for Wigan under 21 then transferred to Widnes Vikings he was playing professional then, he had a game against Warrington he was acting captain that day he collided with another player and smashed his kneecap in half. It ended his career professionally but now he is head coach of the under 18s at Widnes Vikings and he's enjoying it,it's such a shame he been playing since he was 4 1/2 years old he 26 now! K

    Good morning everyone. It is 5.3 fbs for me. Sun is shining today and for the first time, feel it is Spring for now. Tomorrow might be a different story.

    @Granny_grump_ we just had a significant snowfall. The temperatures are now climbing +6°c today 11°c tomorrow. The snow was almost gone until this last snowfall.
    The shoveling this winter has done a number on my shoulder. I may need some physiotherapy if things don’t improve. I have been trying to limit screen time and get more things done around the house. My numbers are still pretty good and no meds so I take it as a win.

    I am doing fine actually even though my numbers are a bit high in average, I just read of this medication used for helping wounds to heal, haven´t tried it yet but it claims to heal wounds much faster than most other medications ... and does not create resistant bacterias : Microdacyn.(Registrated trademark ) also works for diabetic wounds;



    hope you can mange to cope with all these things you are taking care of... and hope your niece will soon get well again

    @ianpspurs Another bit of useless information for you Winstanley is a real area of Wigan, just a short distance from Wrightington Orthopaedic Hospital where a doctor developed the hip replacement surgery a Mr Charnley, world wide recognition of his pioneering work for which Wrightington is still world leader.!

    @Freema I have a mother hen syndrome always taking care of family members can't say no that's me, at the moment I'm taking care of three family members sister niece and son but I couldn't do anything different each have health problems and no-one else to turn to. But my sister would be their for me if I needed her,my son has come home to stay for indefinite length of time so we can help him cope with life's problems that he's finding it all too much to handle on his own, my sister is recovering from gallbladder removal and her daughter my niece has infection from hysterectomy surgery though she is quite young to be having had this surgery. The video I found very interesting will look it up online to see if it's available in this country would be very interested in a product like this! Thank you K

    @Granny_grump_ around here it is usually less cold when it snows. Most of the snow from the last two days is pretty much gone now. Afternoon temperature +9°c. I’ll take it.
