A weird free hotel (that checked your BP every four hours – awake AND asleep): My recent experience of the NHS.

Addenbrookes fixed my bimalleolar (broken ankle) very well Happy 2020! I’ve been away from my website for some time (some of which was under my control some of it less so).

Planning isn’t a dirty word!

The title for this piece mentions the dreaded P word, planning. It helps point us toward an important aspect of the season… Not just Christmas dinner timing; which accompaniments to accommodate the most ‘select’ eaters coming to stay or optimal christmas pudding creation time but also likely nap times for all generations visiting. Planning and timing are for life not just for Christmas (but especially at xmas?) The...
