    This is an “over the garden fence” type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. It’s a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things we’re going to do today or what we’ve achieved already. Everyone’s welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasn’t just been painted first!) and join us for an Old Style natter. The more the merrier!

    As this is the Old Style Board, it would be appreciated if posts could include some Old Style content. Please be aware that many people may have small screens, or SLOW internet connections, so please don’t post large pictures, or clip art – links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that don’t have the time to read everything skim through the thread quickly but if not it's not a problem. Please do not start a new daily thread before you go to bed at night because this often leaves things confusing with two daily threads live at the same time. The idea is that a member would start each new daily thread after they get up in the morning

    Hello everyone.

    Csarina2 I saw your post earlier and am glad to see the update.

    ILC it must be very difficult for you.

    Thinking of all those with worries.

    I've just got back from the dentist. I posted a week or so ago about jaw and gum pain and it just got worse and worse to the point where I knew it must be an abcess but I couldn't have coped with it being touched. It had subsided a bit by the beginning of this week but still very painful but I couldn't really manage any longer. Well you know you're in trouble when the dentist takes one look and says oh goodness, oh you poor thing. Yes it is an abcess but above a tooth that has already had a root canal and she thought that there us very likely a crack in the remaining root and will have to reassess after a course of antibiotics. It will very likely have to come out but I won't know until next week. All in all, I'm feeling pretty rotten but this is as nothing compared to what others are experiencing so I apologise for boringly whinging.
    I was jumping to conclusions and one of them jumped back

    DM's had a peaceful day whilst I've been the blue-bottomed fly. Not sure how much more of the constant attendance I can do. Fingers crossed that she continues to improve and gains strength so I can lie down.

    Once the cleaner left I zoomed out to the docs for a prescription, took it to the pharmacy and then did only a little bit of shoppping. DM is eating more, and she needs to as she's lost about a stone in the past four weeks.

    I've been catching up with work related stuff, chatting on text with some good friends and making tentative plans for the next couple of weeks. I'd like to go home again soon.

    I'm scattering good vibes, best wishes and a armful of hugs around this thread.

    AOD, complain away, mouth problems are horrible. I don't think any of us are keeping a table of who has the most misery, we have enough sympathy to go round. I hope the anti-b's work quickly.

    Thank you, you are so kind.

    Gers, is there anyone else who might be able to offer your mum a little time in between visits from you? My mum did have paid carers once a week for her DH but she didn't really like any carer very much. It did give her a break though, she was caring for DH 24/7. I did try to point out that she wasn't necessarily expected to form a close relationship with the carer, just use the time. She did but it was a strange mixture of wanting a few hours off and disliking tge person on principle.
