I'm going to go on Google to find one of those pill trays so I can get someone to put all my pills out each day for me and set a series of alarm clocks to go off when the next meds are due.

Best just take the correct meds and dream of nurses attending you ... Although you sound like the sort of chap who would pull the short straw and end up with a male nurse in attendance!

Batty I just love the emoticon of the man on fire.....Can't think why!
My Nurse has just left after giving me a FULL bed bath. For some reason she insisted that I removed my glasses.
I could not see her properly but the CCTV camera in the lobby will have picked her up as she entered the building. I'll get the security guys to send you a picture of her.

Hello Hello Hello Security here.......Has requested for someone called Batty. A picture of the Nurse who Hattended to Mr. Postlethwaite....
He's a weird one that one and no mistakin....

Once I finish work on Christmas eve, we'll be visiting Lisa's Dad's house in the afternoon. Then back home so the girls can put out all the paraphernalia for Santa. Then we will read The Night before Christmas before they go off to bed.

Christmas day starts with Lisa's Mum, step Dad and Sister visiting us for Christmas breakfast. Then we have Christmas dinner on our own before my family visit in the afternoon.

Not sure what's happening Boxing day.

The 27th is Emily's 11th Birthday so I am sure we will have a house full of relatives.

We are celebrating on Christmas Eve, dinner is "pinnekjøtt" which is hard to explain, it is basicly lamb-rib that is dried for ages, then steamed for hours....sounds nasty, does it not? 8) served with bolied potatoes, stewed swedes (is that the rigth word?) and sauerkraut. Yummi! All my family is coming, I think it will be a long and funny evening! I have high hopes for the gifts too :lol:

Stewed swedes..... :lol: it`s not turnips, but similar, more yellow....I can`t find my vegetable dictionary. In norwegian it is called a kålrabi, if that is any help :shock:

Ah right - kohlrabi is another spelling isn't it?

Also turnips/swedes are regional descriptions in the UK. Like in Scotland and I think Ireland down here in the Westcountry yellow and white turnips are lumped together but only the yellow turnips are eaten and especially used in pasties (never, never use carrot in those - it has to be a yellow turnip/swede! :evil: ) - white turnips are for cows. :lol:

The first time I tried to buy a yellow turnip in the south east (moved there right after I got married) I was almost in tears as I could see the greengrocer had them but he kept saying he didn't have any turnips which is what I knew them as of course. I'd never heard them called swedes before that, though in retrospect I'd happily have taken a tall blond mountain man instead of the poxy yellow turnip :twisted:

whatever they are called (I think I`ll go for swede, just because the idea of a stewed one is funny) the dish is delicious (and traditional) :D
