    Well the dusting, decorating etc continues!!

    The grumpy one has now b@ggered my Dyson stick thing, He has an adversion to using the big old Dyson monster.
    No probs I thought yesterday, we haven't had it that long.... can I heck find any trace of where or when I bought it I know I can be dizzy at times, but even if I hadn't filed the receipt we should still have the instruction leaflet... nowhere to be found!
    If I buy online I always keep copies of the relevant paperwork... 2 hours searching... no!
    My neighbour, who borrowed it once says 'you had a voucher when you bought it'... that hasn't helped!

    Local 'strange but good' Dyson repairman won't touch it so off to contact dyson!

    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 think for National Trust you have to have had membership for at least 5 out of the last 10 years to qualify for senior membership. I wasn't sure if we qualified but I was almost certain so I rang up. 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 )
