    name='Marky B']Lovely day here,so I took my dad to the Headland in Hartlepool (where he was born in 1920) and pushed him around in his wheelchair for an hour or so,letting him take in the sea air. He reminisced about the old buildings and buildings no longer there. Passed the Heugh battery,which was witness to the bombardment in 1914 and where the first British soldier was killed on British soil in the Great War.

    The plan was to have fish and chips form the legendary Verrill's,not far from St Hilda's Church,but we missed them as they were shut,so we settled for a very nice fish and chips in The Tall Ships pub in Hart village. There are selected meals where you can two meals for �7.00 before 5.00pm. Excellent fish and chips.

    My dad is now in bed fast asleep.

    name='faginsgirl']Sorry to hear this EHV! I have been in the same situation on and off for years now, its no fun, but hopefully something will come up for you soon. Keep going!

    Thanks FG.



    I'm finding it very frustrating. I manage to find a job and get into the swing of things and then it's time to leave.



    Searching the Jobcentre website and several employment agencies websites I've found that there is very little available.

    Me and mr FG have just been locked in our living room!



    I tried to open the living room door and it wouldn`t open, mr FG thought I was joking until he tried! The oven was on in the kitchen too! So, I had to climb out of the window, saying `what must the neighbours think?`, on top of gravel and I had no shoes or socks on, my shoes are kept in the passage but of course I couldn`t get there. Luckily, my feet landed on some ivy but I had to walk across the gravel to the front door with a set of keys!



    Once at the front door I opened it, ran to turn the oven off and got mr FG`s tool kit, went back round to the living room window (with shoes on this time) and eventually, although it took a while he got the lock off and the door opened!



    Phew!

    Thanks,Mark - the sea air knocked him out a bit though. He was going out with me tonight,but I think he has changed his mind. So he is stopping in with a tankard of stout and a sandwich. He has just enjoyed a blueberry muffin from Morrison's.



    Last year,or year before,we went to a restaurant near the Hartlepool Marina and my dad and my brother got fish and chips,and for somewhere near the sea,the fish was the frozen type you get in a supermarket. This one today,was fresh fish in golden batter and it was delicious. I should have my dad's,as his fish was bigger - he can't eat much now - but by the time I spotted it,he had vinegar on it. So a bit was left,though I explained to the nice waitress why,still complimenting on the fish.

    Sounds good Marky

    Spent the day here just wandering in and out of the garden as I did my marathon yesterday and am feeling it today, well was a marathon for me. Went to some fishing lakes near here with my mate and had a look around as we will start going fishing again soon when I am a bit more mobile. Fish were rolling and splashing everywhere and its a really nice spot near sherwood forest. Also has access to get the car really close to the fishing swims so good all round.

    Actually faginsgirl, I was still being thankful that your use of the apostrophe and space bar was correct.

    So Mr FG didn't offer to go out the window?



    Why is it the wife always has to deal with things? My husband always calls out when he sees a spider in the house. I come running and he's standing well back from it, just looking at it. I say, "Well don't just stand there looking at the darn thing! Why can't you take your shoe off and wack it?" He says, "Because you're better at that than I am." Yeah yeah. Braver, too.



    Anyway, I'm glad it worked out OK, FG.

    Ha ha well he wouldn`t have fit through the window, I`m suprised I even managed to get my big bum out without getting stuck! The neighbours probably thought there was an eclipse
