  1. Thanks both. She is now in the WIR with the others and seems happier. No pecking order issues as she was with them everyday, even though it was a short while. As her name suggests, she is top/near the top of the pecking order. Since I'm in Leicester, we're back in lockdown, so both home most of the time - so can keep checking on her. Will bring her in over night as we can't supervise then - and they'll be sleeping anyway. Fingers crossed the prolapse doesn't happen again - been 2 weeks, so ........... Nice to have the support of this forum. Thanks again, H

  2. Nothing to be sorry about. One of my favourite Pratchettisms was in fact not in the Discworld at all. He was describing a downpour as “not so much rain as a vertical sea with holes in it.” I have also always had a soft spot for Gytha Ogg and her “double entendres that were actually single intenders and proud of it”.

  3. Just remembered from Reading Soapy’s reply. Scarves, long and silky.. Can’t have too many. Wrap round your arm to keep it warm so they can find a vein, and round your face when cold air is uncomfortable. And they’re pretty! Food wouldn’t have helped me. I had to eat little and often to get round the sickness. Amazing what you forget though

  4. I’ve had several cycles of chemo. Each type of chemo has different side effects and each person reacts differently so it’s not easy to generalise. I think there is a website with suggestions for gifts for people on chemo. Google it. My best presents included Berts Bees Lip salve, body lotion, body wash, shampoo. Problem now is the smell brings back memories I’d rather forget so can’t use it anymore! I also used Atrixo hand cream as my Chemo had the side effect of peeling and tingling hands. Also, a holder for my IPad so I could use it lying down.

  5. Sorry to read this about your sister - what about a firm sending a meal round once a week to save them cooking!

  6. Husbands? Children? Travel Agents? Dogs/Cats? Electricians? The bloke behind the deli counter in Waitrose? Goodness, I'd love to know 😏! What a teaser!!!!!!!! I have been putting out a box of books on our front wall as the charity shops have been shut and out bedroom is right above; we have had the window open in the hot weather. I have been in hysterics at some of the comments overheard. One chap was out with the dog and clearly decided to 'phone his wife as he trawled through the box and updated her on what was available.........'No nothing sexy but there is a Jilly Cooper..oh and a few Dick Francis. That sounds a bit sexy....shall I grab one? There's one on natural cleaning. OK, not your thing then. It's a very eclectic selection, they must be a funny bunch'. I really wasn't sure how to take that!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Oh PL, sorry to hear that news. How very lovely that you are researching things to brighten her day up - I wish I had a sister like you! Personally I am a great fan of L'Occitane....they have lots of lovely treats and do a selection of things in pretty bags. Lots of floral scents.....I love their lavender but they have rose, cherry etc too. If she likes flowers then I'd really shout out for Bloom and Wild and their letterbox flowers. As the name implies, they are boxed to fit through a letterbox and come with ideas on how to arrange them. I use them for OH's dotty old aunt and neurotic step mother (but don't tell anyone I said that!!!) Having said all that, she may not cope very well with strong scents as chemo can make you feel icky and sensitive to strong smells....but might not. It's very individual. Not On The High Street have some very individual things (as the name suggests!!) so may be worth a trawl? Is she a scarf person? Seasalt have some nice ones, if so. Their handybands are tube scarves that can be pulled up over the face in lieu of a mask.

  10. The forum said it wouldn't save the edit so I've rewritten it in case it didn't appear Also, the RAF museum is opening on Monday. I have a tradition with two of my sons that in early August we go for a visit. The café has tables under the wings of the Sunderland and we like to have a coffee there. My FIL flew Lancasters and Sunderlands so I always like to share a thought with him there. He died far too early in his fifties so it's a sort of connection. Anyway, we've booked our arrival time and I'm very excited about the visit. 🌸 🤩 💖

  11. If she hasn’t had the prolapse since, I think I would put her back with the others. In case of another prolapse, you should consider a vet visit anyway. So I think I would chance it, as it seems that keeping her separate seems worse than the risk of the others damaging her.
