    18th Sept, Friday night quiz here, 8pm

    Not going out again? Snap.

    Join me here if you want a bit of light relief.

    Quiz will follow a sort of theme again. Science 'ish [ extremely ish] at Pete's suggestion. Having looked up the questions, I knew 19 out of the 20 answers. The one I didn't know is added to my trivia memory, that's if I will remember it.

    We had a bit of a world record attendance last week and those who lasted the course or didn't fall asleep, astounded themselves at their sporting knowledge and so good at trivia or just in for a bit of fun and joining in the chat see you here. 8pm.

    Hopefully.

    I’ll be here for,it teacher! It’s not like I’m going out on the razz in Manchester any time soon.🥳🤩🤣. I may be distracted from time to time, but fingers crossed my brain cell will be working on at least 2 of the 4 cylinders 😝.

    Take care and stay well. Helen

      I promise Miss that I’ll try and remember. We’re going out for a late lunch/early dinner but hope to be back home by then but I may have partaken in a cocktail or three. Hic 🍸🍹🤷🏻*♀️

            Thanks Barb, I can see a wee French cocktail waiting for me to go with my monkfish main course. 😀

                  I'll be here but I may not answer many questions as I have limited ability to type due to the fact that I have badly damaged my shoulder, I spent 6 hours in A and E last Monday. It took over 4 hours to get an x-ray and another 1.5 to be seen and treated. it also took an hour and a quarter to get into A and E by phoning 111 first then 03001020247 to be triaged over the phone and then grated an appointment even though I was standing at the entrance to A and E throughout the process, a total time of 8 hours.
                  All the time I was at risk from Covid patients who were in the same queue, not happy about that.
                  I finally got home at 02.45.
                  I now have an appointment with he orthopaedic team on Monday coming. to decide a treatment plan. I think it is borderline for surgery, which has complications as there are significant increases of risk from a general anaesthetic with Parkinson's patients. the last 3 operations (one eye operation and 2 hernia ops) I've had were done under local anaesthetic with a sedative as well , ands being first on the list to allow the Parkinson's med to work during the op and not wear off which could have implications for tremors to start and make it difficult for the surgeon.

                    Get well soon Pete. This is not a good time to require hospital treatment.

                    I hope to join the quiz, if I remember at 3pm. We are heading out for a walk and a bit of shopping now, so the afternoon should be free. Husband will probably sail again, so I should have peace and quiet.

                      So apart from all this, it was an easy peasy hospital visit!!

                      I now have an appointment with he orthopaedic team on Monday coming. to decide a treatment plan. I think it is borderline for surgery, which has complications as there are significant increases of risk from a general anaesthetic with Parkinson's patients. the last 3 operations (one eye operation and 2 hernia ops) I've had were done under local anaesthetic with a sedative as well , ands being first on the list to allow the Parkinson's med to work during the op and not wear off which could have implications for tremors to start and make it difficult for the surgeon.
                      Huh, and I've done an ish theme on science!

                      Never mind Pete, it really is ''ish'' so join in and add your half ['cos the real deal isn't possible with a crock shoulder] pennyworth. You can blame any interesting spelling on your shoulder!!

                          Best wishes Pete, I understand fully the implications of meds 'switching off' and how important it is to have them on time.
