I've got to try to remember to make a dentists appointment before my pension credits stop.

Looks like I've been volunteered to help outside with Liz today, I don't mind really, she has terrible frightus, I just have to be careful I don't make my back worserer, I took so many drugs yesterday I was stumbling about all day, just because I didn't want Liz to lift a heavy box out of the car.

We're fine thanks Frank, just taking care of each other and trying to stay safe, Garden center tomorrow as Liz needs some cucumber plants for the conservatory, there's a little snack bar there so we'll get lunch as well, we get to feel life is normal for a few minutes.

I wanted to clad our last garage as it was mega cold in winter, but I put all the sockets on the rafters as nothing ever got put in front of them, much better than on the walls.

We're looking for a new van, we'd like a PVC, with rear single beds, a 3 way fridge, hob and oven, like hens teeth so far, we can get front single beds, but we struggle to make them up, so rear would be better.

Nice looking bench Terry is it a repair or a complete project you've done.


I have a cast iron/wood bench round the back, inherited with the house but the base has rotted, but the back is fine, I have been meaning to get it in the garage and do it but I am still without a useable garage, I could use it but if he sees me working in there I'll never get it finished.

I also have a lovely pair of cast iron ends we bought at some show years ago which the accountant wants me to put together into a bench seat, not sure I could even lift the buggers now :D :D :D

Take a look here http://andysimports.co.uk/. We know a single woman who bought one of his and was very happy. We have visited and he seems like a good bloke. He will make to your spec too. All sorts of prices depending on what base vehicle he imports.
Thanks pat, the problem with all the ones he has (been before) is the vans are too small to have toilet/shower in them, beds are rock n roll, we are built for comfort not speed, but I will give them another look.

Yeah, as I thought last time, he only imports Mazda Toyota & VW, but only the small ones, Toyota do do a 3500kg truck but not conversions, as do Volkswagen, but not in Japan, shame as I would like a Mitsubishi van, great to drive.

One thing I have had to do is cut down one of my meds, it been making me quite ill since it was upped a couple of weeks ago, Pregabalin is a nerve drug and it had been increased by 25 percent so I'm cutting it out tonight, hopefully it will help me.

I don't think I'll be getting much done today, I stopped one of my meds on Friday and it is having a profound effect on me, my stomach is in turmoil, and I keep getting hiccups too, I had a really bad night again I'm ringing the doc shortly to get a telephone appointment.

I couldn't stand it anymore Pat.


Just spoke to the Doc, he says to stay off and we'll try a different med for my feet, and nothing for pain unless I need it, I have Tramadol if I get it bad short term, I only ever take that for two days max, not had any problems except it makes me sleepy mouse.

Liz put it in here self build, you have to remember that you have zones, so like radiators, you can turn them up/down/off the beauty is furniture can go anywhere, the issue lies in how you power the system, gas is best, and you can also control what the water temperature is going through the pipes to a degree (see what I did there) we would have it again no problem.

Do your research including YouTube as DIY up to the manifold is easy but a bit time consuming.

Not much on but it'll be nice to get out of the house, been stuck in since Saturday, I have to post back the rubbish earphones, get a new back fitted to my phone, (don't ask) And Liz wants a screen protector fitting to her iPad, we may lunch out, need a bit of shopping, and that is the highlights of my day.

I'm still suffering from going cold turkey, and I managed to wrench my right knee on Monday, so I'll not be doing much walking if I can help it, apart from a horrible stomach pain, and a headache I'll survive.

I am fortunate that Liz likes decorating and won't allow me to do it.

We left our Miele at our last house, it never worked properly, we were not going to pay a call out fee to fix it, when we got here we bought a Bush from Argos, it's a slimline model but by heck it does a really good job, I think it was less then £130 too.

None at all Pat.


I didn't go out in the end, I just felt really crappy so I went to bed for a nap, I still feel awful but I'm not quite as tired now.
