    My 60th is in June and I have bought myself a piano to celebrate! I just wish I could afford to retire...

    Benefits of being 60:
    • free prescriptions and eye tests
    • Boots Advantage card extra points
    • Railcard
    • If in London, free tube and bus travel I think
    • National Trust pensioner rate (but join the Scottish NT instead as it is cheaper)

    What have I missed?

I got a numpty who didn't seem to understand what I was asking so I just kept quoting the website and hoping he would understand -he would have our payment records infront of him. All he asked was if OH was over age so I gave his DOB. Anyway he said it was actioned and now we are paying 7.20 a month.

    So after I noticed the price increase of Nicky at Home Bargains yesterday, I had a look at Savers and Farm Foods today only to find they're the same.


    Farm Foods




    Savers





    I noticed the "Little Duck, So Soft" packs, has anyone tried these?

    Just back from the vets. Ronnie our oldest cat has been steadily getting thinner since Christmas although otherwise still his normal alpha male self. It occurred to me during the night that my mum went stick thin when her thyroid was over active so I googled and Ronnie fitted the pattern.

    We have a fabulous vet who must be nearly 80 now, tried to retire but got bored so he just does 2 days a week now so our cats are only allowed to be ill on a Monday or Tuesday.

    Vet checked Ronnie over, his heart rate was racing (mind you vets are scary people to cats so its no wonder) He also asked if his appetite was good (it always has been) but that and his spine protruding he said were classic indicators of an over active thyroid. He said it upsets the metabolic rate so they start burning up fat hence the weight lose. He weighed him but actually his weight was fairly normal so he was stout to begin with. He also took a blood sample and said he would ring us in an hour - actually we had barely got home when he rang.
    No diabetes thankfully but he has got feline hyperthyroid so we set off again for the vets to collect the meds.
    Ronnie has a liquid meds which I've got to squirt into his mouth twice a day and gradually after 3 weeks he will start to plump up again.

    (it made me wonder how long it would take to diagnosis and treat humans with the same condition )

    Did you register it online with Dyson? Mine packed up recently, couldn't find receipt but checked on Dyson website and it was still within the 5 year warranty so they came out and fixed it, no problem

    Hyperthyroidism: all they tend to want to is either nuke it, or remove it Then telling them hypothyroidism is much easier to manage

    Some people can have hypothyroidism for decades before it will actually show up in a blood test where they deem it suitable to treat. Then the treatment is terrible........

    that's what I was thinking. When OH started to need blood tests he could either go to the local hospital so that was a couple of hours away from work plus petrol and parking. Then a weeks wait and you had to ring the surgery and quite often the surgery would just say make an appointment - more time away from work and more waiting. After 3 months he finally got onto the blood test appointment lists at our local surgery so its just a quick half hour out of work - you were literally waiting for someone to leave the appointments list (death, hospital admission, house move etc) before you got onto the local lists.
    But with a cat you can talk to your vet, have a blood test straight away, results within the hour and meds picked up and treatment started same day
