    ...We collected this stupid thing from a rescue centre. This pic was taken a week or so earlier when we met her...

    She was so excited when we entered her kennel. Delirious to be able to play for a few minutes. You can see I'm holding her in place to get the picture because she was climbing the walls with excitement the entire time.

    Here she is today. Still just as stupid and still a cute, loveable thing, 40kg of cute and loveable.

  2. Just got home from Barga in Tuscany, Italy.

    14 May 2017 - 05:37 PM

    Tuscany isn't somewhere I'd have chosen to go, a very good friend was getting married and we needed a break so off we went.

    What a lesson. Quite simply the most beautiful place I have ever been. The people are incredible too.

    If you ever get a chance to explore Tuscany, even just a bit, take it.

    Absolutely exhausted having travelled from Barga to Lucca by local commuter trains, then Lucca to Pisa, again, by local commuter trains, then Pisa to London, all in 12 hours while taking a whirlwind shot out to see the leaning tower, eat Pizza at a pizzaria with a direct view from about 300yds and grab some tacky gifts but still totally buzzing from the experience.

  5. The NHS

    13 January 2017 - 04:34 AM

    In the UK we have a national health service. I know some other counties don't and the idea of having one is contentious. This isn't a political post however. Please let's not get into Obamacare.

    I just wanted to sing the praises of our NHS. This week the headlines are full of doom and gloom about how funding cuts have created a humanitarian crisis in the NHS. Specifically this week.

    On Sunday night I had no sleep. I was in pain, not a lot of pain but one of those relentlessly annoying pains, like toothache. It was under my right arm and by the morning there was quite a swollen area.

    On Monday morning I decided I needed to see a doctor. This means waiting until the GP opens at 8.30 and calling quick but I needed to leave the house before that. We headed off in the right direction but decided to go to the "minor injuries" walk in at a local hospital.

    They were great. I had an issue with a sweat gland called hidrodinitis. They quickly arranged for me to see the surgical team at Pembury hospital (much bigger hospital, less local but still fairly close). I expected to see them and go on a waiting list for something to happen.

    By 8pm on Monday evening I had had surgery under general anesthetic and having demonstrated that I was ok to walk about etc they let me go home. I have had to take the week off.

    This wasn't an emergency (to me), just very uncomfortable. All the people I saw that day were cheerful, helpful, didn't seem to be struggling at all and provided me a fantastic service.

    In the recent past I've said some negative things about our NHS. At the time they were reasonable things to say given my experience but right now I have to be thankful for this amazing service and to all the people who work to make it what it is.

    Thanks Queen Victoria Hospital, thanks Pembury Hospital, thanks to the NHS.

    hi
    His name is Keith Turkington. Remember this was a few years back, so his charges maybe more now.

    He fixes x ray machines in the day and makes guitars and fixes string instruments in the evening.
