Actually, The Doc (By this time a different one, whom Himself had "House-called" for the last visit to my Dad). I remember the 1990's bloke was Foreign (Mum thinks He was Italian - To me He sounded Eastern European - Polish perhaps), but It seems to me that each successive GP has a different thought process, presumably a Later/newer training outlook. Mum's Bloke would painstakingly write out the prescriptions, and then in a different coloured pen and "re-think" and tick off each item. My Latest Doc (Don't Know Her Name, but mid-twenties, Lovely Smile and Waist-length black hair). Where was I ... I yes, Her pen never touched a paper - just marking pre-prepared instructions on pooter which resulted in cancelling prev Doc's instructions (now out of Favour), Phoned Hospital to enrol me in their tests programme, then entering each test into the Hosps instruction. e.g., "Push your hands against mine", "Sit there and try raise your knees whilst I press down ", "Put your arms around me and squeeze.. THAT'S ENOUGH" and so on. Feeding results straight back to hosp giving me an appointment that suited my state of urgency, and tests needed... This Doc had been trained in the offices that I once used???

Good luck, Steve!
The Zoom coffee morning consisted of just three of us today - JB, JA and me. At least the link worked this time. We enjoyed a chat over a cup of tea or coffee. We decided that I'd put my recipe for carrot cake in next month's village magazine. The church cafe will definitely not be opening until next year. When nothing is happening it is difficult to think what to write in my monthly article.
YD is working in her room. OH has been vacuuming.
There has been a viewing at FiL's apartment! It's only the third one in nearly two years and we were about to change estate agents. The good thing is that the people have made arrangements to go back next week. Fnigres corssed.
Chicken report: three eggs, from Lottie, Griselda and Pearl, but Pearl's had broken all over the straw in the nest box, so I had to go and clean it and put fresh bedding in.

The first GP that I remember lived in a large Edwardian house. We waited to see him in a tiled entrance hall with a paraffin heater to keep us warm - no appointments. When I was about 13, I had a verruca removed; I sat in a large armchair in the surgery to have this done.
The last time I remember a doctor coming to the house was probably in the 80s, when I had a bad asthma attack. He gave me an injection of some sort, Prednisone, I think, and although it made me very woozy, it worked.
I have no idea whether they still do home visits - probably not.
Right here's the full gist of it and there's a chance I might be able to go with the enhancements anyway but back to that later.
I've not had a decision yet I will get that in writing within 7 days.
But the main points are I've been given a full apology for the way I was told and will also receive a written apology with the outcome.
The procedure for who and how the decision for who can go will be changed for the future.
If a way cannot be found to let me still leave with the enhancements I will be guaranteed to be allowed to leave the next time the chance comes around.
Now here is where there is some hope the parks and gardens plus highways are about to have the same offer I've been turned down for and the union are going to try and negotiate that myself and the other lad be allowed to go with them.
So any decisions about taking the pension without the enhancements won't need to be made for a while yet, better not tell you what the union rep advised me to do if I do end up having to do that if anyone wants to know pm and I'll tell you in private
Don't be kind to people. Being kind is seen as a weakness
We had a good day yesterday. We haven't been out much but went to a garden centre in the afternoon and got a couple of houseplants and a bag of potting compost. Came home by a very roundabout route through the Devon lanes and stopped at a pub for coffee and cherry cheesecake. The pub is in the middle of nowhere - I'd imagine it was a coaching inn and it's the one where we went on our first date almost 49 years ago. They do an excellent carvery too. All well organised with the current restrictions and staff extremely pleasant and helpful.

Fnigres corssed for Steve.
OH has been for his swim and met up with his ex-colleague for a chat, for the first time since lockdown. He's now in an online conference, part of his consultancy work.
Some good news for me - Di the aqua instructor texted last night to say that classes will resume on 15th. They are going to be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings now, rather than Monday evening and Friday morning. Booking isn't open yet.
YD has just sent me a photo of her Finnish friend who has received the big parcel of sweets, tea and biscuits. She's sitting with a big grin on her face, surrounded by goodies.
My sister and her OH went to Ambleside, Aira Force, Ullswater and Castlerigg stone circle yesterday.
