    So last week I didn't feel too well. Couldn't put my finger on it so just rested more than usual. By lunchtime I was in hospital hooked up to one of those heart monitor things I did tell them that my heart felt fine but would they listen . Anyway, they also connected a bag thing to me, saline drip it seems I was dehydrated, very embarrassed about this as I always tell people to drink, drink drink.

    I was only in there one day and they let me home in the evening I've learnt my lesson and have made sure I've got a days worth of water in bottles in the fridge, it's just filtered tap water but it's very I don't see the point of paying water bills then buying bottled water, I'm too tight and like the taste of our water

    Ok, off for catch-up xx

    DGD helped me unpack.
    'Ooh,' she said, 'What a lovely hot water bottle.'

    And that was all it took. It didn't come home with me.

    Oh AJ....sorry to hear about your hospital visit.

    A colleague of mine went all day, a week or two ago without food or a drink from about 7 in the morning to about 6 at night and found herself in hospital the next day. She woke up feeling disorientated, slurring her speech and thought she'd had a stroke.
    The dehydration had brought on a rare type of migraine

    Now be told woman........keep those fluids topped up

    I'm going to have to go on laptop now as I want to try the coconut milk Dream.

    Talking if laptops, mine is on its last legs. The fuzzy wuzzy line has gone further down the screen. I think someone sitting not far from me picked it up by the lid in the open position and had their thumb in the screen several months ago of course this has been denied , bloody man
