Parking at the QMC is terrible. I guess it's better to take the tram. I remember many years ago, one Sunday afternoon, after I'd escaped from a light aircraft prang alive, I went to the QMC to get a few stitches put in. I parked outside the main door of casualty only to be told 'you can't park there'. I told the guy what had happened and his attitude changed immediately, becoming very polite, leading me to the desk, where when I told them my tale of woe, I was immediately put on a trolley and wheeled off for treatment, passing all those who were waiting! I always tell people when going to casualty to say they've been in an aircraft crash. It opens many doors!

I was at City Hospital yesterday and had no problem parking, I was in an ambulance. I had been having slight dizzy spells for a few days, woke up and felt rough but had to go for a blood test. Having a shower and kept banging into shower walls and couldn't stand properly ,struggled to get dressed, wife called son who phoned doctor, who told him dial 999 and called ambulance. When they arrived I couldn't stand felt sick and my words wouldn't come out right. Into Stroke Unit where I spent all Day for tests and scans, good news not a stroke. It appears my brain and ears are sending strange messages to each other causing a type of severe vertigo. At home  with a months supply of more tablets still feel rough but best of all no housework or ironing.

Sorry to hear that Trogg and thank goodness you hadn’t had a stroke.  Take it easy now,get right before the next meet-up and keep taking the tablets.  A pile of ironing won’t harm you though ;)

No news yet from Nonna but I'm sure it wont be long before contact is made Beekay. We are all waiting to hear.

 

Benj, I have just read your post and I admire your bravery, but I have to admit your situation scared me. These days there is no respect and as we are among the older generation now, we can easily come off worse if a scuffle occurs. Hope your appointment went well Miduck.

 

As we speak I'm in a situation mesen. the house on the next street has a garden backing on to ours. A few weeks ago they must have acquired a dog to keep  as a guard, definitely not a puppy. It barks on and off all through the night and most of the day. How it doesn't bother the owners, I don't know. I know it bothers our other neighbours because it has been discussed. Hubbs and I are the oldest residents around by at least 20yrs , not in the best of health so daren't  go round to the house. incase they get  nasty. It has been mentioned that they are people not to mess with, once threatened one of our other neighbours with a shovel. So consequently, I have had to come and relax in my front of house room. Not so relaxed listening to the thoughtless peoples dog . I am having a bark rage moment.:(

I’ve been in touch with Nonna, her operation went well and she hopes to be back home in a few days. She asked me to say “Hello” to everyone.

That's very kind of you Benj, I thought about taping the dog barking and playing it back when I know the owners are asleep, but apart from that giving all the neighbours a double whammy of barking.........................I'm a scardey cat! We will just have to wait it out!

Carni, get in touch with your local Environmental health officer at the council about the dog.

We've been out all day so only just caught up with all the posts...

 

Very well done, Ben, for keeping your cool in the car park...

Trogg, I hope your vertigo or whatever it is will soon settle down... must have been a scary experience for you and your family..

Carni, sorry  about your yappy dog problem - ear plugs?    Poor dog, too, he can't be happy... he must be bored and/or lonely..

Lizzie, thanks for the good news about nonna

I did that a few years ago for a similar situation and got a positive result from the council people.

My day was enhanced yesterday, by seeing Thomas Cook's Travel Agents shop in Poole open and back in business yesterday. Albeit with a Hays Travel A board outside, but who cares. At least the staff are ok.

Denshaw and CliffTon, Thank you, on a day when I can't stand it anymore, I will definitely contact them. I must say, the only reason  I haven't done it already is because I am afraid of repercussions. We have heard bad reports about the person and I'm too old to take any agro.

 

I just want to add that in no way do I blame the dog, it is the owners at fault. Margie, like you I do feel very sorry for the animal, we are pet lovers and had dogs ourselves in years gone by. If I do report them, it will probably help the dog as well.

Talking of hospitals. I have been in the Spire hospital at Tollerton for an operation on my back. It’s predominantly a private hospital but they take nhs too. I was referred there initially to see if they could do anything with severe arthritis in my neck. I had an appointment Tuesday, mri scan Thursday,  phone call Friday and operation last Thursday. Biopsy’s taken and gunk squirted in lower back. Sore as hell. I couldn’t have had better treatment if I’d been royalty. The specialist Mr Tsegaye is brilliant as are all the staff. If you get the choice definitely snap it up. 
Loads of FREE parking and it’s modern clean and just lovely.

Cropwell Bishop Beauvale Stilton

 

Wasn't sure where to post this but, here goes.

 

I had some friends from England come over yesterday for a holiday/break from Brexit. They brought with them loads of English items which I am unable to get here (or are so highly priced as to be unreasonable). Anyway, one of the things they brought was a whole Beauvale Stilton. Not heard of it before.

 

I have to say this is the best Stilton I have ever tasted and ranks with the best cheeses I have tasted as well. Even Mme, Philippe and Thierry found it good - which is a lot for a French person to admit to liking foreign cheese (or foreign anything). It is superb eaten with fruit.

 

Beauvale is somewhat different to the usual Stilton in several respects, one is that the whole cheese is about half the size of a 'normal' Stilton. Also, the  rind is soft, and I find, quite edible. The cheese itself is creamier than a normal Stilton and a little bit milder but it still has the characteristic 'bite'.

 

I may be telling you things you already know and I'm simply out of touch. I don't know how easily available this cheese is in the RU but I would highly recommend it.

 

Edit: (Sorry if that reads like an advertisement - it isn't, honest!)

Speedy recovery letsavagoo. Sounds unpleasant but hopefully worth it.

Thanks Jill. Went for the neck but they found the lumber spine problem and something (not sure what, shadows or dark marks) they didn’t like the look of hence the rush and the biopsy. Not worried as judging by the past efficiency they’d have called me by now if there was a problem. Doesn’t feel better at the moment though.

That's my local hospital. I could walk there if I was really desperate, although thankfully I don't have any major problems at the moment.

 

Without being too nosey, did you go as an NHS person or privately ?
