Just had my eyes tested, I was expecting I might need glasses full time (according to how things have gone with the rest of my family) apparently my eyes are healthy and good and I don't. Even my reading glasses don't need changing so that's a bonus too.
My sister will be furious of course, she needed glasses at a much younger age than I am now and she despises wearing them. I wasn't worried (I don't have any good looks to ruin ;) ) and I still don't need them.

In November 2008 I made a hot curry on the Saturday. later on in the weekend Mrs B had stomach pains despite having had that recipe several times before. On the Monday we went to see the doctor; she could not uncover any problem but did ask if Mrs B if she knew that she had a heart murmur.

This led to open heart surgery the following February then later stents (the Duke of Edinburgh had one to headlines whilst Mrs B had seven) followed later by better stints. She had her last lot of work done two years, since then it has been six monthly testing.

Today she was discharged to great rejoicing.

Great news Bill Boddy - I hope you are spoiling her rotten. Maybe not with the same curry though!
It turned out that her original problem was nothing to do with what she had eaten. It was instrumental in bringing her artery problem to light , had it not happened she could well have had a heart attack some time later. She was slightly below average weight for her height and has never smoked in her like but her father also had the same problem.

That's excellent news Titch I am sure you and Mr Titch are really pleased to have him back where he belongs. It means you won't have to go visiting either which will be a relief I bet. You're right, I am sure you will soon get into a new routine and all will be well. :cheer::)

We have a fridge/freezer and an upright freezer. Recently the freezer part of the fridge freezer has been playing up. To compensate for that we have a friend of our daughter staying with us, she has just sold her house and is waiting to move into an apartment; she has brought a chest freezer and a fridge freezer. The kitchen is a bit crowded due ti the large freezer but it works.

Today we bought a fridge and fridge freezer combo (Bosch) from Costco, it was the same price as the combo in John Lewis but on special offer of £250 off. So soon we will have even more clutter. We intend to pay to have the faulty item removed, the working freezer, a Siemens just over 5 feet tall, we hope to give away to someone who will remove it. The drawback is that we can't remember how old it is, we brought it with us when we moved here in September 2003!

There was a further drawback but that is about become a rant.

I know nicki minaj, she had 2 good songs on her own starships & super bass but i know her more from her collapbations, ill be honest I didn't know she had a partner til her "retirement" I sure she was linked with lewis Hamilton at 1 point. but then I think every famous model/singer under 35 has been linked with Hamilton at some point
