It's probably too much alcohol but some lifestyles we can't really give up.

Just remember to drink plenty of liquids.

The consensus, don't laugh, is gout. I don't even like port or thrashing servants.

I've had it before and it usually clears up after a few days but getting out of bed in the middle of the night is pure agony.

There are a couple of prescription medicines but they take many days or even weeks to work so not really an option in the short term.
You do have a bit of a pukka pie problem

We were planning to go for my birthday in June, but then the world went crazy so that was that. Would be interested to know what you think.

You could slum it a bit like we did tonight with some yummy vegan junk good from Doner Summer.

Thanks for the suggestion. If this doesn't clear up on it's own in a day or so then I have to go and see the doctor.

Previously it's sorted itself out in a few days so we'll have to see.

Probably wont happen now, as the booking was for Thursday - Ive asked if there are any cancellations on Wednesday, but its unlikely...

(Plan B - booked a local restaurant for Wednesday at 7pm)

Eldest just bought an Oculus VR set with some of his first earnings, and I got a go of it last night. It's quite amazing

Re: What have you just bought?

Christmas presents for our Grandson plus his Birthday present for 4th January. Feeling less stressed. Rest of the family are getting money, boring and not my usual choice, but hopefully more useful this year.

I had the Nespresso once, never again. Price per cup just isn't worth it. Better to get a bean to cup machine (such as the esam4200 - can be as low as 199) and then buy the beans. Soon recover the costs and the choice of coffee is much bigger, not only that the coffee is so much better.

Re: What have you just bought?

Some HyperX Cloud Alpha S 7.1 surround sound headphones, unfortunately this won't work for the Xbox 1, but no major issues.


I also got the TP-Link Wi-Fi power strip.
