Sorry to hear about the stroke mate.


All the best people are diabetic. Are you are type 1 or 2?


Type 2


Just like me. If I can help let me know.

Have they given you huge bag of drugs? Which ones?

See if the NHS will give you one of these. I have to buy mine but they are worth it, for 24 hour a day blood update.

Yikes! Good to hear it was relatively light and the prognosis is positive.

Someone at work had a mini stroke last summer-ish - and isn't just back at work but ran the Manchester marathon last weekend.

Yes, never sure what to say in these cases, but glad to hear it's not too serious. Hope you recover quickly.

In Czechia today, I was in a rush to leave a train, and follow the locals to the replacement bus service I had only just realised was on offer - I didn't understand the words the grumpy conductor used the first time, nor the second when I asked "Pardubice?", but I got the gist of "NO! No Pardubice, autobusy!" and some waving.

I made if off, small bag, laptop, earphone grabbed and in my hands. I caught everyone up, I made it round the corner I would never have turned on my own, I got onto the bus.

*Then* I remembered my other bag. The one with the clothes in, the clothes I was so pleased, just last night, to have got into a washing machine for the first time in 6 weeks.

I called out "Gah! My bag!" for the benefit of any English speakers. I ran. I went back round the corner I'd never have turned (etc), down the ramp, along the underpass, back up the stairs. I heard the train move just before I could see it. The bag left.

But Yay! I still have my passport, cards, money, phone, chargers, kindle and laptop, so I don't *have* to have the other bag. The bus was only taking us a mile and half ("No Pardubice!" was only partly correct, because we were at Pardubice Rosice. Has a nice ring to it), so the half hour+ I had before my next train was more than enough time to walk it, and the route was easy despite no phone reception. I made my second train (to Brno).

I've been in text chat with Arriva, and who knows, I might even get the bag back.

Possibly worse! But yes, they're all over the place.

Didn't like the house we looked at as much as we wanted to; the valuation of the current abode is more than we owe.
