I had a terrible winter once when I was classed as homeless but luckily I had a caravan to doss in. It was so cold the damp in my bed froze overnight and I would wake up curled in a ball in the middle lol

Hard to imagine Tizme we should count our blessing that we have not to suffer so much as other poor souls.

There but for the grace of God or more likely family members go all of us, it really doesn't take much to end up on the streets.

Perhaps sometimes we take too much for granted Daddy, we have an easy life now compared to many in this world.

I often think of what it must have been like in days past. When our house was built, 1919, the only heating was open fires and the sash windows must have been so draughty, unimaginabley cold. Then even more about your ancient Brit in a stone or wood hovel and only skins or crude clothes, no decent shoes and a smokey open fire. Miserable.

We have a lot to be grateful for with our modern lifestyle despite the bills to pay for it.

you toughen up to it. In days gone by if the room was cold you put a jumper on if it was still cold you say in your coat. Central heating makes you soft . You can survive perfectly well in the most part at 10% but I bet a lot of you are up at 20.I got my heating on 15 degrees and I have had to take my hoodie off and im sat in a tshirt

Indeed we do have a lot to be thankful for Tinky and some of us just don't realise it as my sister works for the Salvation Army in London and she has seen a big increase in people out on the streets homeless in the past few years and although they do their best they cannot help everyone given the finances they have at their disposal.

Actually you might be surprised but we have no central heating though the sashes are secondary glazed and I am wearing a rather fetching jumper over a t-shirt and sweat shirt as is the OH.

Too many people are too soft these days.

Saw the consultant today, op booked for April 17th. Because of the diabetes, a normal one day procedure will see me stay for one or two nights. Hospital I'm going to give you your own room, a TV, WiFi access and meals.

Got to go for a pre admission appointment, where they will swab me for MRSA and the like and to meet the surgical team.

I would not want to meet them. What if you take an instant disliking to one or more of them. No way would I want to go through it then lol

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

I would take that risk. I've been suffering for the last couple of years so hopefully in a month's time no more irritation down there.

I'm sure you'll just be glad to get it over and done with Mark, and the 17th April is not too far off. Good luck with the op!
