24 hours can be a long time? Yesterday (Wednesday 18th April 2018) started off with me slowly getting out of bed about 6am,after a rather painful traumatic night..I waited till Mrs Stinkey came downstairs and packed me off to A&E... Shocked
Several hours of tests/bloods/questions by a thoroughly lovely team revealed nothing sinister or bad ?
Doesn't explain the symptoms or pain though,so hopefully I don't have to have the OP again ? They even gave us both tea and sandwiches ..and sent me home..came out to lovely warm sunshine but shortage of breath..battered and bruised too Grin
Went home and chatted to our neighbours for the first time in ages..their off to Spain for a weeks holiday as a retirement gift from their daughter ..how cool..mrs stinkey even sold them some of her handmade jewellery..
Runya designs on Facebook    Roll Eyes
Then we noticed a car pull up and the people inside sat checking out our house ( for sale) they drove off obviously not impressed ? Cheesy
I crept onto the sofa and managed a nice sleep..then spent an hour sat outside in the sunshine,dreaming of Spain but thinking if my health has deteriorated again it may never happen ?
During the day I received lots of random videos on whatsapp from buddies..my main communication nowadays .i discussed the worse case scenario with the Good lady regards my health? I even offered my trike for sale to a fellow manky,just in case?
We sat watching TV ..place in the sun reruns ..full of painkillers we crashed up to bed about 11pm, the stepdaughter came home shortly after..closely followed by the stepson,slightly the worse for wear..been out celebrating his 18th birthday ..and he kept us awake for several hours while rushing in and out of the loo to be sick Cheesy baptism of Pan Hugging  Cheesy Wink and woke up to news of Dale Wintons passing..same age has myself 62..

So much supermarket veg are in plastic bags now and the use by dates are terrible, they are usually only a few days ahead. Potatoes grow eyes really quickly even when kept in the dark. No, before you say something, I don't mean I'm keeping secrets from them!  Roll Eyes

Yesterday I made soup, and ratatouille, out of veg that was well out of date including veg that was reduced to about 10p when I bought it a week ago. Even the tin of tomatoes was 9 months out of date. When you think of the undated tinned stuff taken on expeditions that was eaten years later, we should be alright. Eggs which lasted for ages sitting in one of those chicken shaped baskets on the counter now have to be kept in the fridge and eaten within two weeks! We survived in the past. Too much food waste because of dates.  Undecided

"Team leader" -harr, ha, ha! Smiley
I'm just the one that pays the bill to keep the lights on here Smiley
You know I'm only taking my time to annoy you now Stinkey don't you Smiley
11.30pm & I've just got home from the garage. Arrived there at about 7 this evening, but really not sure what I've achieved in that time. Just cleaning up sections of chassis inside the cab, ready to brush paint it once the body's finished.
Last grotty job is to attack these mounts with my trusty broken hacksaw blade. The hoop of tubing under the dash that holds the steering column, pedals, brake servo etc used to be welded in place -until I realised it'd stop the body ever being removed. Now it slots into these tube stubs & bolts in, but I'm slightly concerned it's a bit of a sloppy fit. With the steering wheel in place there'll be a lot of leverage on it & I don't want it to wobble about. So I figure if I cut a slot down through the mounts they can be bolted up tight around the top bit, (it's ERW tubing so is soft enough to give a little). Obviously they're really inaccessible though -this sort of stuff always is -so will take a bloomin' week to cut through. No I can't fit a grinder in there & don't want to spray sparks & dust in there anyway. Hopefully that's the very last modification.

Do you remember the days before Supermarkets became so obsessed about things being all the same size and perfect. You went down to the Greengrocers and brought what ever he had in stock. It all tasted the same,it all looked the same when you cut it up.
