After 3 1/2 years of going backwards and forwards to hospital and getting worse and worse with all kinds of reasons for increased breathlessness including GERD/gastric reflus; it now transpires I have advanced Pulmonary Hypertension which is far too much pressure in both my lungs and right side of t...

I know that this is absolutely nothing to do with photography but as this is my blog I hope I will be forgiven for asking for advice. I have been diagnosed with acute GERD which is severe acid reflux but it has got so bad that it is affecting my breathing as acid is getting into the respiratory ar...

My daughter wants a small digital camera for her birthday from us. She isn't into photography in a big way so it really needs to be fairly simple to use. It is for taking snapshots of her small son and short videos. Price guide around 100- 150. Does anyone have a camera that they really rate hig...

Still watching every hour

Just a very quick blog as I will not be uploading for the time being. Mum's first operation on Christmas Eve went sadly wrong and on Friday night she was rushed into theatre as she was desperately ill and they had to redo all the original work and take out a huge abscess that had ruptured. Six ho...

No post = FRAUD !!

I am feeling so violated. We have had no post for about a week and four things that we have paid for haven't arrived. Also credit card statements and a letter from our solicitors. I managed to grab the postman this morning who we know really well and asked him where our post was rather jokingly. ...

We went there for the first time this Sunday after mixed reactions from friends and a definite thumbs down from the children at my school when they went a couple of years ago. I will probably be shouted down in flames by some but my husband and I were just amazed at some of the 'pieces of art '!! ...

It is our 30th Wedding Anniversary this month and tomorrow we are going to the Lands End Hotel just for one night. Seaview room and 48 hours of no phones or people knocking on the door..I just can't wait. I have never been there but it looks like the end of the world sitting on the cliffs looking...

How do you find time ?

I love Blogs. I love the galleries. I love Word Association even though there are some who HATE it but it makes me laugh so many times ! I was horrified to find out that I was the top forum poster for August and I will never live it down if jools has anything to do with it. Karen let me know I was...

Village Shock !

Last night an elderly man from out village who is a bit of a gentle recluse living with his son and dog was , for absolutely no reason, battered about the head with a cricket bat by a youth from a nearby town. He was battered so hard and with such violence no one could get near to help or give assis...

Can anyone tell me where one stands legally on this issue. This would probably be better as a forum question but forum threads always seem to stray from the original question. I teach in a Primary School and on no account are we allowed to put any photographs of children on to any web site. This i...

We really want to visit Southern Ireland in the next twelve months but neither of us has ever been there. Mountains , lakes or sea, small villages..somewhere really peaceful where we can just wander and relax. Hopefully we will rent a small cottage somewhere but when you know nothing about a coun...

Thank you to everyone

Tarryn was born on Saturday evening and he is such a very beautiful 9 lb baby. My daughter had a really dreadful labour which was quite scarey as she is so very tiny herself. Fortunately all is well now and she came home yesterday with strict instructions to rest ! Huge thanks to all who mailed an...
