  1. Hello folks, I'm not dead (yet) but I am quite unwell. On March 5th I had a bit of an accident at home when I lost my balance and fell very awkwardly. I was alone and on the floor, trapped between various items of furniture. I tried to free myself but that only made things worse. I was like this for nearly twelve hours -during which time I became pretty desperate. I was eventually rescued to discover that I was completely paralysed from the waist down. Off to A&E.

  10. Apparently he spent December in Barbados (The Times, February 1 2021).
  11. I know just how you feel, SG, having lost one of my dogs a year and a half ago. Things will get better and you have all the happy memories of your two boys to keep you inspired and remember better times.
  12. Almost certain it's Gerard's chimney. Looks somehat different without the factory buildings at the base but the decorative brickwork persuades me.
  13. Want to learn to cook?
