Monday (can't think of a witty title!)

Thank you for all the recommendations for food processors and grinders, I'll look into them all and let you know what I go with.  I've had a look on our neighbourhood selling sites, nobody's selling anything like that at the moment, I'll keep looking though.

Re the scam email, several people on the local neighbourhood page have said they've had the same email (with exactly the same details!) so it's obviously doing the rounds.

Moira, you asked about my hip.  I have both osteo arthritis and trochanteric bursitis in my right hip, and signs of OA in the left hip and knee also.  I don't know what the outcome will be, whether there's any pain relief meds more effective than paracetamol I can have, or maybe injections, but as my GP said, hip replacement is a last resort.  And I know Cherie had severe complications with hers as a result of her surgeon severing a nerve, frightening!  At the moment I manage with paracetamol, codeine occasionally, cold relief spray (I don't like the smell of Deep Heat) and a small TENS machine.  It'll get sorted eventually, the upcoming op for my diabetic bladder complications is more important right now.

I hope the rain eases off today, think we've had quite enough of it now!


  1. I think it is supposed to be a bit brighter and dryer today - I sincerely hope so anyway. xx

  2. I actually managed to get in the garden yesterday, after rain, rain and more rain the day before. Looking OK today too. I remember my Mum had a TENS machine for her knee, but didn't find it helped much. But I guess some things work for some and not others. It's just trial and error. I hope you find what works for you. xx

  3. Good luck with your bladder op.

  4. Oh gosh poor you.

    The rain is back with a vengeance today after quite a pleasant afternoon yesterday. Luckily I have lots to keep me occupied indoors for the next few days ... and our dogs do not like being dragged out in bad weather.

  5. Hope the upcoming surgery goes well.
