    Thanks TM but that's the bit already sorted, DD found accommodation through the Canadian Uni elective website and reserved back in February a house share with a quite professional. It's a reasonable weekly rent that includes utilities etc.

    I'm trying to work out how much she will need each week for other expenses while she is there.

    On another note has anyone used any online currency exchange companies, some of the rates seem to good to be true.

    Dad not taken away

    Paramedics stayed for ages & decided he didn't need to go.

    Mum wonders now if she was imagining things when he started talking in 'tongues' ... as he is quite 'normal' now
    Next door neighbour - an 'adopted' son ♥ (who was burgled) has come round to sit with Dad ♥
    Lovely man & his wife, who work on designing The Underground extensions, so immediately became Dad's new best friends, Dad is Underground obsessed.
    Thoroughly enjoying the Underground series on C5 - brilliant

    Anyway where am I? waffling

    The Dr when he came earlier today, said Mum was to ring 999 if he started getting delirious, which is what she did

    and relax
