Your local fire service will usually have someone who will come to your home and assess your safety from a fire risk angle. It's certainly worth giving them a call.
And surely, the place you are renting isn't 'fit for purpose'. Try the council on that one.
Date now for removal of my metalwork is 10th December.
Also, is Joyful friend's 70th birthday.
Brilliant to hear, Irene.
If you didn't think hubby was safe you wouldn't go anyway, would you?
'You're my wife first, carer second', was what hubby always used to say to me.
Appointment for operation came through this week, to have the metal nail removed from my leg. It was for 2 weeks' time. Bit of a shock, as the consultant told me it'd be around Christmas time (18 months after injury). Basing our lives on THAT, we've booked a weekend in London, plus a bonfire night o...

Hi Hannah, How's your clothing progressing??? The biggest problem late hubby had was finding t-shirts and jumpers which were long enough to give plenty of tuck-in to trousers. He found shop bought ones too short in the body, thus causing gaps between trouser waistbands and bottom of shirts, causing ...
Oh dear, Henrietta. Sounds like the assistant will do things that relate to your dad and not things which help you (as in the remit). Get onto their bosses about this. This used to happen in our house with our PAs, as if I didn't matter or help them enormously. Speak to someone about it. Don't let y...
Well, look at you two!
