      If it is the same Trusts always struggling, maybe they are the ones with a greater population catchment. Our Trust is always struggling ,has been in special measures, but a lot of people in quite a “poor” area.
      Also about 3 weeks for a docs appointment locally so people rock up at A &E.

      The yodel guy round here takes pride in knowing where everyone is and hates using his satnav unless absolutely necessary. But drivers like him are few and far between. Like the Amazon driver who turned up the other day, sat blocking the drive for 5mins as he couldn’t deliver before his specified time, then practically threw the parcel at me with a fag in his other hand. No hello or goodbye! What a charming man!

      I ate all manner of rubbish as a kid. But I was out all day moving around. And out with the dog in the evenings.
      Playing fields are being sold off and competition and the rough and tumble of sports and PE in school is not encouraged.
      Kids stay indoors and play computer games. EVERY sport and hobby is struggling to attract young people.
      Parents are worried about the dangers of RTCs and stranger danger. There are a lot more cars on the roads in fairness.

      Almost every child in NL cycles to school. Loads of adults cycle to work. Pedestrians and bikes have right of way.
      If a driver hits a bike their life is pretty much over.
      Every tiny village you drive through, there are people out on pitches doing sports of some description.
      They eat and drink a lot of crap too, but they move a lot more and almost every home, even in really built up areas, has a vegetable patch or a raised bed.

      Dunno about France.

      I’m really not sure it’s that simple TBH – I don’t eat rubbish (well, not often) or large portions, and apart from breakfast and a lunchtime snack I have a modest main meal once a day. And I do 2 hours physical labour at the yard every day, don’t drink and am pretty much always on the go (no idea how I found time to work lol) but the weight will not shift, 11 stone these days as opposed to just over 9 until I got to be middle aged.
      I am retired but so often you see people in the media, slim and sylph like into their ’40s and then it all piles on after 50. So is it body type (as opposed to the Japanese?) or hormones (lack of??) or something else?

      If she has not formally terminated her tenancy giving the obligatory notice, she (or her guarantor) are liable for the rent. You need to be careful about accepting rental payments from him unless you put it in writing that he only has use and occupation, and no rights to the tenancy. I would also advise him in writing that you are selling the property and give him sufficient notice to move on (i.e. 2 months).

      I used to work with BT- they would not be the ones to contact you about a problem with your line, you have to contact them (and only if you pay your line rental to them).

      If you pay line rental to TalkTalk, it would be them who you would need to speak to about any issues.

      Call your banks and let them know- if they accessed your ebay account they may have access to your bank details.

      You need to take the pressure off. I’d arrange cover for the horses before it after wirk twice a week, and diary an exercise session followed by a bath. Horses twice a day every day is punishing – it’s no wonder you’re fatigued even without the mental pressure of trying to find non-existent time to exercise.

      The NHS is a bottomless pit. On a TV programme last week there was a very spritly 98 year old who had one operation for his heart, during which he had a stroke and was carted off in an ambulance to another hospital for an operation on his brain to remove the blood clot. Both operations were successful and he went back home to recover. The doctor said that when he was training anyone over 65 was considered old. The NHS seems to want everyone to live for ever and doctors dole out pills to keep everyone alive. Obviously when it comes to me and my family I want the best treatment there is and no expense spared. I have paid for it haven’t I in my taxes?

      So who is going to call a halt? Who is responsible and who decides. It seems that there isn’t really anyone really responsible for running the NHS.

      Welcome to the real world.
      Might be worth getting your vit d etc levels checked.

      I have very odd dreams which I can remember as well. If I think back to the previous day I can usually find a reason for them, even a name mentioned will make me dream of someone with the same or a similar name.

      If they are nothing horrible then don’t waste time worrying about them. Exercise and wine will help sleep but won’t stop dreams!

      Terrible story to read and I can quite believe how this can happen – even in this day and age !! Social services were very helpful when I phoned them to report vulnerable local person.

      Could you arrange to pick him up and have him visit you for a couple of days, when you could arrange for him to go round the retirement villages? Maybe once he saw them, he would be spurred on to sort something out?

      Or could you go down to there to this woman’s place with a friend and tell her that she has to tell your father that he can’t live there anymore and then all sit down with him and have her tell him when you’re there (otherwise, she sounds like the sort who would renege on anything you’d agreed)?

      Do the local colleges teach this accounts software? Does your Accountant know anyone, or would they know of a trade magazine you could advertise in? There is always the local newspaper.

      Your Accountant would probably be able to help with the second person.

      It was my FIL’s 70th birthday and he and MIL were coming to our house (a 250 mile trip) to celebrate. Unknown to him, we had invited the whole family for a surprise party on the Saturday (his actual birthday). I phoned in ill on the Friday so I could spend the day making all the food in preparation for the party on the Saturday and getting it in the fridge so FIL didn’t see it when they arrived on Friday evening.

      I did feel a bit guilty knowing others would have to cover my lessons, but I had only been at the school less than a term, hated it with a vengeance so didn’t really care.

      I would report anyone I knew to be drink driving if I had tried and couldnt stop them.

      My advice would be that you ask your GP to be referred for talking therapy. it worked well for me. also get yourself some legal advice on your employment situation! If you own your own home and have home insurance it may include legal expenses – some insurers have a helpline you can ring or try ACAS who are free. Good luck

      We had a lot of dealing with TS about a car. As I recall, we contacted them, they arranged a time to come out and discuss it and we supplied them with a mountain of paperwork. They looked into it and added it to their file of complaints about the dealers, but never did anything more than chat to them about improving their service…
