    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    Good Morning

    Just dropping in to thank you all for the kind wishes on the other thread

    I don't feel any different to the way I was before I went on the meds but I did suffer quite a number of different side effects and the second set of bloods that were taken (first were OK) showed that my kidneys and liver had been affected as well as all the aches, pains, itchy hives, white legs and nose bleeds.
    Second blood test on Wednesday (yesterday) after being off the meds for a week showed that kidney function was OK but liver function was actually in a worse condition
    I will get my next test next Thursday and that will determine what happens next, in the meantime my original condition will need to go untreated
    Every man is innocent until proven broke.
    Cryin won't help you, prayin won't do you no good.

    Morning all

    No specific plans today, there is another fence to paint but I'll do it next week when I'll have a run of 3 days at it. Will probably spend today replacing my duff kitchen cupboard doors.

    As you say, I used to do it myself, but the very low bit at the back was tricky. Sometimes I got it right, sometimes I didn't.

    Why do they say it's two haircuts and so won't do it? Sounds batty to me!

    Sounds like they just don't think they are capable.
